Zur Geschichte der neueren schönen Literatur in Deutschland.
First edition of a work on contemporary German literature, intended as a sort of continuation of Madame de Staël’s De L’Allemagne. It first appeared as a series of articles in the Paris journal L’Europe littéraire. This first edition was banned on publication, and is very rare. A second, expanded (though heavily censored) edition was published in 1836 under the title Die romantische Schule.
Goedeke VIII, 557, 43; Wilpert/Gühring 6.
