This is a very rare German-language opera, by Richard Wagner. I took this book to be evaluated by one of the members of The Georgia Antiquarian Booksellers Association, and there are currently no copies of this book for sale and only one known copy in a private collection. Dresden Cemeser published the book in 1844.
Richard Wagner conducted the premiere at the Semper Oper in Dresden in 1843. This book was printed a year later, being one of the early copies made. In February 13, 1945 February 15, 1945 the city of Dresden was bombarded during WW2 potentially destroying some of the remaining copies. Pages from 7-10 are missing. I has signs of wear due to aging.Please feel free to contact me for additional information. Own this Unique piece of history. To find another copy like this one.
