Number 83 in an Edition of 200. Case bound, letterpress printed book with tan paper covers; gold embossed title/author text on front cover. Text is printed in black and green inks and presents a German language translation of French symbolist poet Paul Verlaine's 1867 work, Amies. German translations are followed by the poem in its original French. Colophon is signed and dated by the translator, Franz Von Rexroth - "July 19, 1926". An approximate translation of the colophon states that this work, by Franz Von Rexroth, was privately published (not for the trade) in a handmade edition of 200 number copies in English (?). The bookbinding and letterpress printing was executed by Fritz Ludwig Amberger.
