Half Leather. First Edition. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. 196p. (ten issues, all but No. 1 are 20 pages each). A very good copy, the spine of which, has a one-inch piece lacking at the bottom, there is a three inch crack in the outer joint of the spine (binding is not compromised), and the spine is rubbed; the decorative endpapers at the front each have a nickel-size piece lacking and the front free endpaper has vertical creases and a tendency to bunch up. This is a sound copy of the first ten issues bound into one volume. The advertisements give an interesting picture of the lives of German-American men, brewery ads dominating each issue. The choral society must have been a drinking society as well.
