Kaspar Hauser oder die richtige Enthüllung der Geheimnisse über Hausers Herkunft, die Ursache seiner Einsperrung…herausgegeben von W.C. Gr. v. A. [Caroline, Gräfin von Albersdorf].

iv, 99 pp.; vi, 125 pp. Two vols. 8vo, cont. marbled boards (orig. printed wrappers bound in Vol. II), green leather lettering pieces on spines. Munich: E.A. Fleischmann, 1839.

Second edition, “vermehrte und verbesserte” (1st ed.: 1837). Caroline, Countess of Albersdorf, born Lady Graham, lived in Nuremberg and mistrusted the reasons for Lord Stanhope’s intense interest in Kaspar Hauser. Although the Countess changed her opinion several times regarding the probable origins of Hauser, she maintained a constant interest in his welfare. The present work is one of the most detailed early accounts of Hauser’s life and death. Her distrust of Stanhope never changed and she was quite outspoken about it here.

Fine set. Bookplate of Dr. Hans Peitler, dated 1919.
