Hart in top margin of title-page, lacking rear free endpaper. Rare edition in English of one of Germany's most famous and most successful children's books. Wilhelm Busch owed his immense and lasting success to his humour and illustrations. Apparently the first translation into English was by C.T.Brooks, and was published in Boston in 1871; the British Library's copy of the anonymous translation we are offering, published with Busch's original illustrations and colouring by his original publisher, is dated 1874, but our copy is undated. We think it is of the 1870s, or just possibly early 1880s. No edition in Osborne.
