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.
