About this Item

Defective - lacks 2 leaves, pages 13-16. This is an early, 1885 American printing. 2 volumes bound as one. Translated by Louise Brooks from the German. Louise Brooks's translation has the copyright date of 1884. There is the 1885 date on both title pages, but this book was printed earlier in 1884 since there is a gift inscription for Christmas 1884 on the first blank frontpaper, and the catalog at the back of the book has a October 1884 date. The greenish- brown front cover and the spine have a decoration of a tree branch on the upper 2/3 of the cover and the spine. The tree branch and the lettering is in black. The covers are well attached with baring to the inner hinges. The top and bottom 1/4 inch of the spine is chipped. Some soiling to the covers with bumping, rubbing, and wear to the corners. The first frontpaper's lower right corner is missing a 2-1/2 by 1 inch piece. Besides the 1884, large gift inscription, there is a bookplate on the inner cover showing a spinning wheel with 4 short lines of a rhyme in German. The name on the bookplate has been inked out. Volume One contains 397 pages and Volume Two contains 269 pages followed by 22 pages of advertising for the publisher's other books. The pages are clean and are tightly bound. One page of the catalog has the date of October 1884. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 12157
