THE MONK AND THE HANGMAN'S DAUGHTER.

Illustrated by Theodor Hampe. Chicago: F.J. Schulte & Company, 1892. 2 pp undated ads. Original mottled light brown cloth stamped in black.

First Edition of this tale purportedly derived from an old German manuscript -- a tale involving an illicit relationship between a monk Ambrosius and a local girl Benedicta who is shunned because she is, yes, the hangman's daughter. This is a copy bound in cloth (originally priced at $1.25); there were also copies in wrappers priced at 50 cents. It is in near-fine condition (very minor soil, but essentially no wear). Blanck 1112. Item #14466

Price: $295.00
