Condition of the book: very good to near fine / condition of the cover: good to very good. There is no mention of “Auflage”nor of “Tausend”, I think therefor that this a first edition.
On the closing flap of the cover box there is a sticker mentioning the bookshop in Vienna where it was sold. The bookshop was founded in 1874 and moved in 1875 to the address mentioned on the sticker(see below).
"Im Jahre 1874 wurde die Buchhandlung in die Kärntnerstrasse 10 verlegt und Rudolf Lechner entschloss sich, seine ganze Arbeitskraft dem Verlag und vor allem dem buchhändlerischen Komissionsgeschäft zu widmen, wärend er das Ladengeschäft an den Buchändler Eduard Müller und an Alfred Werner verkaufte, die es unter der Firma: R. Lechner Universitätsbuchhandlung (Müller und Werner), fortfürten. Im Mai 1876 verlegten Müller und Werner die Lechnerエsche Universitätsbuchhandlung auf den Graben Nr. 31, Ecke Graben - Stephansplatz. wo sich die Handlung bis zum Schluss befand. Ein Jahr später schied Eduard Müller aus der Firma aus und an seine Stelle trat der junge Buchhändler Wilhelm Müller."
