Spengler, Oswald, 1880-1936. Atkinson, Charles Francis, translator.  
The Decline of the West. Form and Actuality. Authorized Translation with Notes by Charles Francis Atkinson.

Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf, NY, MCMXLVI [1946].
Two volumes: xiv, [4], 428, xxxi p., 2 folding tables; 507, xxxii p. Der Untergang des Abendlandes, Gestalt und Wirklichkeit. The first edition was 1917; the revised edition, 1922; the first American edition, 1926. This enormous expression of cultural philosophy, originated in 1912 in a draft completed before the outbreak of the first world war, proposes that Western-- Faustian-- culture has reached a peak and is in decline. To document his thesis, Spengler drew from various cultures in a completely ahistorical manner to show parallel declines. The work is as rish as The Anatomy of Melancholy or the novels of Joyce, and almost as fictional. Lots of either/or; it sounds splendid. A passage at random: "Thus, musically as otherwise, the castle and the cathedral are distinct. The cathedral is music and the castle makes music. The one begins with theory, the other with impromptu; it is the distinction between waking consciousness and living existence, between the spiritual and the knightly singer." Stimulating and nonsensical. Black cloth stamped in gold; spines faded;
