Mencken was one of the great American prose stylists of the Century, and, as one would expect, his translation of "The Anti-Christ" is an outstanding read. I happen to think it is a far better read than R.J. Hollingdale's translation, which is the one most often used by scholars and students. Whether it is more or less faithful to Nietzsche's original is a question I cannot answer, not being sufficiently fluent in German.
In any event, it's great to see Mencken's much-neglected 1917 translation back in print.
It's sad when a publisher tries to rip off another publisher, and poorly. This Cosimo edition even cuts out the footnotes in an effort to create a cheapo book.
