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.

ZINZENDORFF, GRAF LUDWIG VON
Inhalt
0. 1743. [.. Reden ..][ Flensburg & Altona, c.1743 ?]; [x], 235pp.; WITH: Des Grafen von Zinzendorff Inhalt derjenigen Reden, welche zu Berlin vom 1ten Januar. 1738 bis 27ten Aprilis in denen Abend-Stunden sonderlich fuer die Mannspersonen gehalten worden. 3. Aufl. Flensburg & Altona, 1743; [viii], 342pp.; two volumes bound in one, early 19th. century marbled boards, black paper label with gilt lettering; worn, spine neatly repared at front hinge, vertical crease along centre of spine, edges worn, light brown stain running up to half the length of some outer margins, mostly in the first work, early ink entries, apparently prayers, on verso of final blank. The first work, dedicated to 'Ihro Majestaet, die Koenigin von Preussen' , lacks its title-page. After the Dedication, ending 'Ludwig von Z|inzendorff', and Foreword, dated 7th June 1738, from Marienborn, the contents begin under the general heading: 'Inhalt der Zwoelf Reden ueber das Gebet des Herrn'. These twelve sermons are followed on page147 by 'Der Inhalt noch zehen anderer Reden'. Thus the two volumes, together covering Zinzendorff's speeches in Berlin in early 1738, would appear to belong together and to have been issued together. This would make the first work also a third, or later, edition.
