Friedrich Nietzsche's Library

This book is intended for placid readers. [....] Such a person has not yet forgotten to think: while he reads, he still understands the secret of reading between the lines, indeed he becomes so wasteful that he even reflects on what he has read, possibly long after he has put the book aside. And not in order to write a review or another book, but just this—to reflect!
— Friedrich Nietzsche: "Thoughts on the Future of Our Educational Institutions."

A reconstruction of Friedrich Nietzsche's "library": books he read, bought, borrowed, received, or requested—including those merely listed in his notebooks, or referred to in his correspondence. This list is sorted by author and constantly updated; it includes references to works, notes, correspondence, and other material, with links to the texts.
