    Das Nibelungen Lied or Lay of the Last Nibelungers.

    Translated into English verse after Professor Carl Lachmann's collated and corrected text by Jonathan Birch.
    First edition in English of the Nibelungenlied, published in Berlin at the behest of Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia; this copy suitably extra-illustrated with plates reproducing the fresco paintings of the Nibelungenlied by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872) in the royal palace at Munich. The translator Jonathan Birch (1783-1847), a personal friend of the Prussian king, based his work on the edition of the philologist Karl Lachmann (1793-1851), who had proposed genealogical groups for the entire range of available manuscripts.
