Hans Breitmann's Ballads.

London: George Routlege and Sons, [ca. 1870?]. A later English printing. 8vo, original color pictorial wrappers, 96 pages + 4 leaves of ads. A trifle worn and soiled; a nearly fine copy. Item #10363

The first two series of ballads, along with "Hans Breitmann in Politics." An attractive cheap edition. The publisher's ads trimmed to fit (with some loss), as issued. Cf. BAL vol. 5, pages 355-358, for a discussion of Hans Breitmann's popularity in Britain and the publication tangle involving Trubner and the pirated editions from Hotten.

Price: $75.00
