The book : Rare and attractive edition of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust -- a tragic play in two parts usually known in English as Faust, Part One and Faust, Part Two. Although rarely staged in its entirety, it is the play with the largest audience numbers on German-language stages. Faust is considered by many to be Goethe's magnum opus and the greatest work of German literature.
The author: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832) was a German writer and statesman.

In addition, numerous literary and scientific fragments, more than 10,000 letters, and nearly 3,000 drawings by him exist.
