Notes

First edition, number 87 of 95 copies; this the copy of Dr Arno Ed Lampe, with his name printed to the colophon and his bookplate to the front pastedown. Lampe was a Munich based doctor and scientist who published a number of works on the treatment various ailments such as anaemia and Basedow's disease with his wife Lavinia. Rilke wrote Ewald Tragy between 1898 and 1899, and is considered a precursor to his Malte Laurids Brigge novel. This semi-autobiographical piece of juvenilia was left unpublished, however, until this edition published in the year of Rilke's death. The work is unsurprisingly uncommon, with no copies held institutionally in the UK, and no copies traced at auction.
