Classical and Christian Ideas of World Harmony: Prolegomena to an Interpretation of the Word "Stimmung"
by Spitzer, Leo et al.
Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins Press, 1963. Hardcover. G+ (Slightly aged overall, with moderate edge wear to top of dust jacket, otherwise nice.). Crimson cloth, gilt letters on spine, cream & BW illus. dust jacket, 232 pp., no illus. "A contribution to the history of ideas. It surveys a whole semantic field as it was developed in different epochs and literatures. Spitzer here reconstructs the many-layered occidental background for a single German word: Stimmung -- the concept of world harmony. Although published originally in Traditio in 1944 and 1945, these long essays were later revised and expanded by Spitzer. They were found among his papers after his deah in 1960." (dj) Scarce.
