Binding in fair, book in good condition, On the author (Source: Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th edition):DAHN, JULIUS SOPHUS FELIX (1834-1912 ), German historian, jurist and poet, was born on the 9th of February 1834 in Hamburg, where his father, Friedrich Dahn (1811-1889), was a leading actor at the city theatre. His mother, Constance Dahn, nee Le Gay, was a noted actress. In 1834 the family moved to Munich; where the parents took leading roles in the classical German drama, until they retired from the stage: the mother in 1865 and the father in 1878. Felix Dahn studied law and' philosophy in Munich and Berlin from 1849 to 1853. His first works were in jurisprudence (.). In 1857 he, became docent in German law at Munich university, and in 1862 professor-extraordinary, but in 1863 was called to Wurzburg to a full professorship. In 1872 he removed to the university of Konigsberg, and in 1888 settled at Breslau, becoming rector of the university in 1895. Meanwhile in addition to many legal works of high standing, he had begun the publication of that long series of histories and historical romances which has made his name a household word in Germany. (.) Together with these larger works Dahn wrote many monographs and studies upon primitive German society.(.) Not less important than his histories are the historical romances (.). The list is too long to be given in full, yet almost all are well-known. Parallel with this great production of learned and imaginative works, Dahn published some twenty small volumes of poetry.
