The Magic Ring, volume II, 1825

£90.00

Product description

Volume II only, of the 1825 three-volume English translation of Der Zauberring (1813) by Frederick, Baron de la Motte Fouqué. Edinburgh, 1825. Published by Oliver & Boyd and Geo. B. Whittaker.

The Magic Ring is a blend of epic quest and fantasy inspired by Icelandic sagas. It was very well known in its day and is said to have influenced Wagner's Ring as well as the genre of medieval romance and epic fantasy that led in time to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

Half leather with marbled boards. Spine and covers are worn, spine leather worn away in places as visible on photograph 2. However, the binding appears tight, and the book is otherwise in good condition for its age, with light foxing, intact pages, and no inscription or marks that we can see.

Please note we only have volume 2 of what would have been a 3-volume novel.

This book will be sent by courier.
