Ex-library with stamps on the titles and engraved frontispieces, and a small round paper label on the upper boards, boards a little rubbed, a bit of chipping to the tops of the spines but this is still a very nice, certainly very good, copy of a scarce work.

Comprised of 12 novellas and short stories, Wolff notes that this is “one of the key books in the transmission of the German Romantics to England”.
