Welt von Gestern: Erinnerungen eines Europäers
The World of Yesterday: Memories of a European in German Language
The book describes everyday life in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century. The memoir depicts the last days of Austria-Hungary under Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria. The book also talks about the system of education and the sexual ethics. Zweig describes in his book the serenity of Viennese society after centuries of Hapsburg rule. The book is a very valuable source of information and gives a very vivid description of the occurrences in Europe before the second world war.
Rare edition, most probably second after the Stockholm edition.
