New York and London: G.P. Putnams's Sons, (no date but about 1889). Original quarter cloth, gilt, decorated in gilt, over floral-patterned cloth boards. Edited by Parke Godwin, who provides a biographical sketch and translates three tales, "Adventures of a New Year's Eve", "The Broken Pitcher", and "Jonathan Frock". The last story, "Walpurgis Night", is translated by William P. Prentice. Presentation inscription dated Christmas Eve, 1889, from drama critic William Winter to his wife, Lizzie. Zschokke's tales tended to be didactic expressions of liberal economic, social, and political ideas (Oxford Companion to German Literature), which must have been attractive to utopian reformer Godwin. Edgeworn, fore-edge dust soiled, paper brittle. A Good copy.
