Geschichtschreiber der deutschen Vorzeit; xxxxiii, 286 pages; Publisher's pebbled brown cloth over pebble-surfaced paper covered boards. Ekkehard IV (c. 980 – c. 1056), the author of the Casus sancti Galli, was a monk of the Abbey of Saint Gall. The chronicle Casus S. Galli was begun by Ratpert and continued to Abbot Salomon (883), and carried it on from that date to Notker (972). This work is a most important document for the contemporary history of St. Gall. This is the second of the major editions published in the nineteenth century -- (the first was edited by von Arx in 'Monumenta Germaniae Historica Scriptores II,' Hanover, 1829). This German version by the great Swiss historian Gerold Meyer von Knonau [1843-1931] was first published in St. Gallen in 1877 (as St. Gallische Geschichtsquellen, Bd. 3 = Mittheilungen zur vaterländischen Geschichte, Bde. 15/16). In 1879, Meyer's version became part of the series 'Geschichtschreiber der deutschen Vorzeit." This copy represents the second edition of that series; although the title page here is not dated, [OCLC record Number: 299907957] suggests a date of 1891. It is easily distinguished from the third edition of the series, which offered Casus Sancti Galli in a new translation by Placid Bütler (also published by Dyk, in 1925). An excellent copy, unworn, but showing just a touch of light rubbing along the edges of the boards. In Fraktur type. (Do not confuse this 19th century original with the various print on demand versions).
