Memoirs of Goethe: written by himself.

Published 1824 by Printed for H. Colburn in London .
Written in English.

Edition Notes

A digital reproduction is available from the Open Collections Program at Harvard University, Women and work collection.
Apparently based on the French translation by Aubert de Vitry of books I-XV, all that had so far appeared in Germany. In the English translation, the books of the original work are denoted "chapters." The translator's "work, it appears, is done from the French, and shows subtractions, and what is worse, additions."--Carlyle, Crit. and miscell. essays, New York, 1872, vol. I, p. 178.
An American edition, with imprint: New York, Collins and Hannay ... and Collins and co., appeared in the same year, and was reissued in 1844 by Collins & Hannay. cf. Baldensperger, Goethe en France, 1907, no. 1696.
"Postscript" (summary of Goethe's works) and "Biographical notices of the principal persons mentioned in these memoirs" (vol. II, p. [161]-174, [175]-350) by the (original?) translator.
