[copyright 1897] · Philadelphia
Late 19th-century edition of tremendously popular verse written in fractured German-American dialect.
Too late an edition for inclusion in BAL. Publisher's green illustrated cloth, with a full-length portrait of Hans Breitmann; covers printed in green, black and gold. Spine faded; few spots on lower board. Top edge gilt; other edges untrimmed. Very good. (Inventory #: 2998)
