Memoirs of Goëthe:
written by himself.



Main Author: Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von, 1749-1832.
Related Names: Aubert de Vitry, François Jean Philibert 1765-1849.
Language(s): English
Published: London, Printed for H. Colburn, 1824.
Note: "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.
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.
Apparently based on the French translation by Aubert de Vitry of books i-xv, all that has 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.
Translation of Aus meinem Leben. Dichtung und Wahrheit.
