in der Simrockschen Ubersetzung nach dem Versbestande der Hundeshagenschen Handschrift. Pp. [iv]+xii+266(last blank), text in German gothic front, printed in red & black, with coloured illustrations throughout; narrow med. 4to; green leather spine and corners, the spine lettered in gilt, quite rubbed and browned, decorated paste paper boards, in greens, the edges worn; all edges green; Volksverband der Bucherfreunde, Berlin, 1924. *Beinecke Library: 'Hermann Degering reproduced the only surviving medieval illustrations of the Nibelungenlied in a format reminiscent of medieval manuscripts in this edition based on the translation of Karl Joseph Simrock (1802-1876). First published in 1827, Simrock's translation went through countless editions, and is said to have done the most, of all translations, to popularize the Nibelungenlied. In this way, Degering brought early 20th-century readers closer to the haptic experience of the original.'. Item #150812
