* Later German edition of this famous 1875 gay novel (arguably the very first with a happy ending), nevertheless very rare, and a beautiful book, its attractive period binding in fine condition. A translation into English by Clara Bell was published in 1884, as ‘Fridolin’s Mystical Marriage’. Needless to say, its modern reprints are hideously ugly.
