ANON.,
Homers Odyssee
0. 1802. neu travestiret; oder Ulysses am Zusammenflusse des achtzehnten und neunzehnten Jahrhunderts. "Ithaka im Jahre X". Zu finden in Mannheim bei Schwan und Goetz, 1802; 222, [ii] advertisements, [i] errata, with frontispiece; original blue-grey paper-covered boards; contemporary owner'sname on front pastedown, extremely light stain to top of frontispiece. First, and probably sole edition. A jeu d'esprit which casts a satirical eye on the manners of its period, with a remarkable copper-engraved frontispiece by d'Argent showing the protagonist - in the costume of the late eighteenth century - about to board an air balloon. A second volume is announced on page 222, but we do not believe this ever appeared.

GOETHE, JOHANN WOLFGANG VON
Briefwechsel Zwischen Goethe Und Zelter
0. 1833. in den Jahren 1796 bis 1832. Herausgegeben von Dr. Friedrich Wilhelm Riemer. Six volumes, bound in three, Berlin, Verlag von Duncker und Humblot, 1833/1834; each volume approx. 450 pp.; early pebble-grain cloth, spines lettered and ruled in gilt and blind, boards ruled in blind, speckled edges; spines faded, with fading extending onto the boards. A fine set of the first edition of this most important correspondence between Goethe and one of his closest friends. Its provenance is a large private library built up in Travemuende in the course of the 19th Century, now dispersed, for which it appears to have been bound ca. 1850/1860. An apparently blank and unnumbered page has been partially excised after p.362 of Volume IV. The book is nevertheless complete, as we have ascertained by comparing this copy with another copy of the same edition.

HAKER, RICHARD STRUVE,
Hoelderlin.
0. 1942. Tribut einer Ehrfurcht. Bogota, 1942; 124 pp. with frontispiece portrait; 23 x 18 cm.; publisher's printed wrappers reproducing the same portrait as the frontispiece; largely unopened; neat repair to verso of wrapper. A very rare tribute to Hoelderlin published by in war-time exile. The first part of the book (about half the contents) narrates "Hoelderlin's Leben", in prose. The second part consists of "Sonette und Balladen" by Haker on Hoelderlin-related themes. This work was printed, in Colombia, at the end of 1942, in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of Hoelderlin's death. To quote the blurb on the wrapper: " Sie erinnert an das Ewige des Deutschtums, an das, was alle Zeiten und Alle fluechtigen Wechsel uebedauert: an das, was man die unsterbliche Seele des deutschen Volkes nennen koennte. In der biographischen Skizze findet der Leser sich unter deutschen Menschen, in den Versen erscheinen ihm alle die seelischen Zuege deutschen Wesens, die uns als wertvoll und als unverlierbar gelten .. Solche deutsche Art, wie sie Hoelderlin kennzeichnet, wuerde in unseren Tagen unter gleich tragischem Stern stehen, und so mag es wohl geschehen, dass ein jeder von uns in diesem Dichterleben ein wenig seines eigenen Lebens, seiner eigenen Wuensche, Hoffnungen und Enttaeuschungen wiederfindet ..".
