Hoffmanns Werke, Volumes One, Two and Four, Schweizer, Viktor and Paul Zaunert
61 Schweizer, Viktor and Paul Zaunert Hoffmanns Werke, Volumes One, Two and Four
Leipsig and Wien Bibliographisches Institut AG, Hard Cover Very Good Hard Cover 16mo 6" - 7" tall 
This is an incomplete set of three of the volumes from a multi-volume work, attractive, with soft-brown boards in very good condition. Text is remarkably clear, and there is no highlighting or underlining anyway. Spines are worn and rubbed. First volume has a tissue guard opposite the frontispiece, an arresting likeness of Hoffmann. Published probably around 1900, the first volume is preceded by a lengthy introduction by Schweizer, and then a facsimile reprint of a letter from Hoffmann from 1816 opens this first volume. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
