This year marks the 125th anniversary of the appearance of the first volume of poems Eminescu, a book known as the "Maiorescu Edition" (1883).
Detested by Eminescu, this volume, brought to Socec Library Publishing & Comp., In the absence and, somehow, without the consent of the author, and today raises some questions. How Eminescu's lyrical creations have been ordained by the iscatmulte Maiorescu questions.
In the absence of plausible explanations of the carer editions, most interpretations and speculation focused on aesthetic or otherwise, attributing Junimea mentor selection criteria and ordering of poems, which have become, over time, true axioms.
We will not insist on some already known elements (for content, organization and accuracy of text) and the printing technique (size, format, type of letter, paper quality, etc. related model), but will expand research on subtle aspects of the volume (signs, symbols, images and cryptic, some Masonic significance), less or no analysis yet.
It is obvious that, from cover to cover, the entire volume of editions creative design hides a well mastered by the editor, graphic designer or printer as well as.
Despite all appearances, each volume element has recalled its own logic, not left anything to chance.
