Dust wrapper protected in archival mylar cover. ; First printing in English of Helmut Werner's abridged Edition. 393, [1] pages + [6] pages advertisements. Red cloth boards. Page dimensions: 216 x 132mm. "Oswald Spengler's masterpiece, which originally appeared in English in 1926, is one of those books which can be regarded as indispensable to one's education, but its very size has daunted many would-be readers. The attempt has therefore been made to reduce it to its essentials, concentrating on the first volume and severely shortening the second, which was to some extent an exegesis and amplificiation of the first. As a result the fine stream of Spengler's eloquence has been preserved and his argument is easier to assimilate." - from dust wrapper blurb.; 8vo
