Title: Mary Schweidler, the Amber Witch: The Most Interesting Trial for Witchcraft Ever Known, Printed from an Imperfect Manuscript by Her Father, Abraham Schweidler, the Pastor of Coserow, in the Island of Usedom
Author: W. Meinhold
Publisher: Wiley and Putnam
Printing Year: 1845 First American Edition

Condition/Details: Bound in brown cloth, this antique volume is a scarce nineteenth-century Gothic novel and literary hoax written in 1839 by Johannes Wilhelm Meinhold (1797-1851) and originally published in German as "Maria Schweidler: Die Bernsteinhexe." In 1844 it was published in Britain as "The Amber Witch" in two English translations, one by E. A. Friedlander and this one by Lucie, Lady Duff-Gordon. Lady Duff Gordon's translation was very popular with the Victorians and went through numerous editions, including a luxurious one in 1895 illustrated by Philip Burne-Jones. Meinhold's story was a favourite of Oscar Wilde when he was a boy, and in 1861 it was also made into an opera, "The Amber Witch," composed by William Vincent Wallace. Wallace's opera is long forgotten, but the novel on which it was based has continued to be re-published, both on its own and in anthologies, into the 21st century.

Meinhold claimed to have discovered the manuscript of a 17th century minister, Abraham Schweidler (purportedly a pastor of Coserow and known for his fire and brimstone sermons) amongst the rubbish in the choir in the old Coserow Church. The manuscript contained the story of the pastor's daughter Mary, the "Amber Witch." Described as "the most interesting trial for witchcraft ever known," church leaders had apparently urged Meinhold publish the story for its didactic value. When it first appeared almost all of the German critics believed it to have been an authentic historical document.

The work then attracted critical notice, not only for the dramatic nature of the narrative, but also for the arguments as to which parts of it were original and which ones were Meinhold's own reconstructions written in imitation of the original 17th-century style – "a literary tempest in a teapot." The author's intention had been to set a deliberate "trap for the disciples of David Strauss and his school who pronounced the scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be a collection of legends from historical research assisted by internal evidence." (Agnew, John Holmes and Bidwell, Walter Hilliard (eds), "The Author of the Amber Witch", Eclectic Magazine: Foreign Literature, Leavitt, Throw and Co., 1850, Vol. 21, p. 419.)

This book contains a four-page publisher's advertisement relating particulars of the publication of "The Amber Witch," along with two additional pages of a more traditional publisher's advertisement and a half title page with notice of "Library of Choice Reading." The volume shows external age/wear, lacks spine, and is solidly bound with age-toned pages. Previous owner's name is penciled onto front endpaper. The book measures approximately 5 1/4" x 7 3/4" and contains iv/xi/180 pages plus 32 pages of (uncut) publisher's advertisements. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
