First edition. "One of the handful of important anthologies of German fiction, emphasizing the supernatural, that appeared in the early part of the nineteenth century, reflecting and reinforcing the influence of this material on the Romantic movements in Britain and America. This collection of more than 1600 pages includes early legends (Reynard the Fox, Thyl Owlglass, the Merry Jester and Doctor Faustus [an abridgment of a 1599 work by G. R. Widman]), folk tales and popular traditions recorded by Otmar, Gottschalck, Eberhardt, Büsching, the Brothers Grimm and La Motte Fouqué, and stories by Musaeus, Schiller, Tieck, Langbein and Engel, including first appearances of English-language versions of weird tales by Tieck, as well as an obscure story by la Motte Fouqué. This collection preceded Carlyle's similar, and better known, four-volume anthology by a year." - Robert Eldridge. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 1-26.
