About this Item

Karl Wilhelm Ramler (1725?98) was a Prussian poet, lyricist, editor, and anthologizer. He here turns a selection of Salomon Gessner's prose Idyllen into poetic hexameters! Gessner (1730?88) was a Swiss painter and prose writer of considerable success. A volume of modest production values, this begins nicely with a handsome title-page bearing an engraved vignette by Johann Wilhelm Meil (1733?1805) that sets the tone for the contents: lyricism in an idyllic setting. Small 8vo (16.5 cm; 6.5"). 192 pp. Leemann-van Elck, Salomon Gessner, 584. Slightly later green paper?covered boards, rubbed and abraded but volume sound. Early leaves lightly soiled and with light foxing, all edges red. Bookseller Inventory # 34204
