Limited to 1,000 numbered copies; this copy is out of series. A keepsake for members of the Börsenverein and participants in the "Cantate" (or "Kantate") festival. An evocation of the Leipzig Book Fair in the Biedermeier era (1815-1848), with excerpts from contemporary accounts (including a letter from an Austrian diplomat griping about the ease with which "forbidden books" appeared at the Fair). Title page drawing, four tipped-in contemporary illustrations. Covers chipped.
