First edition, the partbook issue.  The work was also issued in score.  Both are very rare, OCLC locating a copy of the 1st Bass part at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, and a set at the Swiss National Library.  There are apparently no copies in Germany: KVK shows the British Library copy (in score) only.
 
Among the 46 pieces included are works by Mozart, Just, Speyer, and some minor German and Swiss composers, but the surprise comes in three English glees, translated into German, by Samuel Webbe, ‘one of our greatest glee composers in every sense’ (Baptie), ‘Mr’ [Richard?] Wainwright, and Reginald Spofforth, his ‘Hail, smiling morn’, ‘possibly the most popular glee in the entire repertory’ (New Grove).

SCHÄFFLE, Albert Eberhard Friedrich.

Kapitalismus und Socialismus mit besonderer Rücksicht auf Geschäfts- und Vermögensformen. Vorträge zur Versöhnung der Gegensätze von Lohnarbeit und Kapital.

First edition of one of the author’s major works. Schäffle ‘nimmt als Kritiker des Sozialismus eine besondere Stellung ein. Kein anderer Deutscher hat bisher einen so besonnenen wissenschaftlichen Versuch gemacht, in den Ideen des Sozialismus Wahres und Irriges voneinander zu scheiden, wie er in seinen 1870 veröffentlichten Vorträgen über Kapitalismus und Socialismus’ (Schumacher & Wagner). (Our translation: ‘holds a special place as a critic of socialism. Up to that point, no other German had made such a considered scientific attempt to separate the true from the false in the ideas of socialism, as in his lectures on capitalism and socialism, published in 1870’).
