Undated first edition [1899]. Frontispiece portrait of Mozart. Original tan cloth on bevelled boards. Light scuffing, scattered light foxing, inscription (1902), very good. An earlier and different translation by E. R. Sill appeared in the USA in 1870. "An entrancing romance founded on the tragic and pathetic life of the great tone poet. The book has already attracted widespread enthusiasm in Germany, where it is looked on as absolutely unique." ("Jarrold & Sons' Six Shilling Novels, The Most Recent Additions"). Thus a novel based on the life of Mozart, NOT a straight biography.
