Text very clean and mostly bright, pale yellowing along outer margins. No writing or markings. A tale of Nordic historical fiction, published in German, some of it in archaic, poetical Middle High German. Published for advanced students of the German language. Most copies on the market today are print-on-demand reprints. This is an early original edition but lacks illustrations. Dahn was a noted 19th century law professor who wrote romanticized history and historical fiction, mostly dealing with the fall of the Roman empire and ensuring tribal warfare. Some of his ideas became embedded in a nationalistic philosophy that later fed Nazi mythology.
