Iowa City: State Historical Society of Iowa, 1932. First Edition. Large octavo (24.25cm.); original black gilt-embossed cloth, top edge gilt, in publisher's plain paper-covered lidded box; ,502pp. Fine, extremely brilliant copy; box edges rubbed with some splitting along folds, else About Very Good. History of the Amana colony, a group of seven villages in Iowa first settled by German pietists in the middle of the 19th century. This work was published shortly after the "Great Change" of 1932 in which the community split into two organizations, one spiritual, the other business, in the wake of financial difficulties as caused by the Great Depression and a mill fire. Though the present work is not uncommon, this copy appears to have never been removed from its original box and is subsequently in unusually fine condition. (Inventory #: 31520)
