[Berlin: Printed by Trowitzsch & Son], 1838. x,325,pp. Printed wrapper, untrimmed. Frontis and plates. Rear wrapper neatly detached, front wrapper partially so, otherwise very good. Accompanied by: GOETHE'S CORRESPONDENCE WITH A CHILD. FOR HIS MONUMENT. FIRST VOLUME [wrapper title]. [Berlin: Printed by Trowitzsch & Son, nd. but ca. 1840]. ,iv,390pp. Printed wrapper. Lower portion of upper wrapper clipped away and the wrapper laid down on verso of frontis, some foxing and dustiness, oddity in collation (see below), but good. The two enclosed in marbled board slipcase. An unattributed translation of the first work, the first into English reported in OCLC under this title. The second work (Volume I only) is kin with the editions printed in Berlin for distribution in London and the US to raise funds for Goethe's Monument, even though the narrative construct was a product of Arnim's imagination rather than Goethe's. Curiously, although the text follows that of the 1841 Lowell issue, the make-up and pagination of the prelims in the present copy is quite eccentric, and it lacks a title leaf. It is included as a matter of interest rather than value. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76788)
