About this Item

In this monthly journal of criticism and original German literature, three monthly issues constituted a volume. Present here for 1774 are vols. 2 and 3 (April?September), for 1775 are vols. 1 and 2 (January?June), and for 1776 also 1 and 2. The volumes for 1775 have => retained their original green paper printed wrappers. The plates in the 1776 volumes are essentially frontispieces, being engraved portraits of Johann Geiler von Kaisersberg, Johannes Fichard, Wilibald Pirckhaimer, Sebastian Brandt, Ulrich von Hutten, and Hans Sachs. Political coverage is secondary to the literary and philosophical content here, but => in the 1776 volumes the coverage for England is almost exclusively devoted to America. The journal's editor, Wieland (1733?1813), was a complex figure of the German Enlightenment: a poet, novelist, political theorist, and pedagogue. His critical review/journal was of considerable influence. Provenance: Duplicates (with no markings) of the Harold Jantz Collection (i.e., ex?Duke University). Small 8vo (19 cm; 7.5"). 1774: 2 vols. (of 4). II: [1] f., 365, [1] pp. III: 397, [3] pp. 1775: 2 vols. (of 4). I: 286 pp., [1] f., [6] ff. of original wrapper. II: 286 pp., [1] f., [6] ff. of original wrappers. 1776: 2 vols. (of 4). I: [1] f., 290 pp., 4 plates II: 310 pp. [1] ff., 3 plates. Volume 2 for 1774: Modern marbled boards; considerable foxing and some waterstaining. Volume 3 for 1774: Contemporary wrappers of brown paper sprinkled with black; uncut; considerable foxing and some waterstain lines. Volumes for 1775: the two are bound in one volume of brown leather, spine darkened to black and flaking; plain endpapers. Binding shows wear, but text clean. Volumes for 1776: Contemporary calf, gilt spines; covers with some stains and abraded at edges, some distressing of the spines. Interesting "wallpaper" endpapers in blue-green and white of a floral and wave pattern. Good++ condition. Very definitely a mixed, partial set and definitely an interesting array of presentations.
