8vo. Blind-embossed red cloth with gilt lettering and decorations. viii, 576pp. Chromolithograph frontispiece, numerous illustrations (several color chromolithographs). Very good. Spine faintly sunned; ownership signature on front pastedown. A tight and handsome first edition of the 34th volume of this kid's annual, entirely in German. Title translation: "Youth Leaves for Entertainment and Instruction." German children's book author Braun (1815-86) first published her "Jugendblätter für christliche Unterhaltung und Belehrung" annual children's magazine in 1854, which ceased upon her death -- until the series resumed (without the "christliche") "Unter Mitwirkung vieler Jugendfreunde" (with the participation of many young friends), simply listing Braun as founder. A lovely copy. Bookseller Inventory # 40573
