Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None (German: Also sprach Zarathustra: Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen, also translated as Thus Spake Zarathustra [1883-85]) is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). The infamous classic deals with ideas such as "eternal recurrence," the "death of God," and the Übermensch. Nietzsche considered Zarathustra to be his magnum opus.

According to Toledano's Guide, this title was first published in 1917 through 1990. The number 388 on the inside top of the dust jacket suggests a date of 1960f., though commonly the rear panel design was used from 1954 to 1959 (Toledano, pp.166, 176).

In this considerably better-than-average VG condition, this is a classic in the ML handy format. Some wear to the cloth and dust jacket (unclipped), which also has edgewear and a few relatively clean nicks.
