Deutsch-Amerikanische Monatshefte Fur Literatur, Kunst, Wissenschaft Und Offentliches Leben, III Jahrgang, I Band, Januar-Juni 1866 [German-American Monthly for Literature, Art, Science and Public Life Vol 3 Book 1 January-June 1866], edited by Rudolph Lerow, 6x9, 614 pgs, not illustrated, leather and marble boards, Rudolph Lerow, publisher, published in the US but exact place of publication not noted [3 pgs of ads are for businesses located in New York, Chicago and St Louis, Missouri]. This scarce volume features a monthly periodical printed in German text with articles related to musical works, current and historical events, science and medicine, famous authors, etc. I am not able to read German but (with the help of a dictionary, some articles with a scattered phrase in English) was able to determine that there are specific articles about Wall Street (dollars in gold), New York events, the Civil war that had just ended, (Lincoln’s war, Lee’s war, the Civil-Rights bill, the Freedmen’s-Bureau Bill), the American Indian legend (has reference to Hiawatha and Longfellow), Andrew Johnson, cholera, musical reviews, the Nicaragua Transit (over-land stages, Panama), some poetry by Victor Hugo, the Guerilla War in Mexico, etc. There are two pages of ads - the only illustrated ad is for Bradley’s Duplex Elliptic Spring Skirts (an undergarment to provide support and shape to hoop skirts). This periodical was printed on quality paper that has survived beautifully. Interesting and scarce.

Condition: Heavy wear to binding, previous owner’s name inside front cover and obnoxious book price from years ago on ffep. The pages are for the most part remarkably white with only occasional, scattered foxing. There is a short tear near gutter of first page and occasional small corner folds. Overall the contents are Very Good for age in a worn but original binding. No odor.
