Hardcover, the first four volume uniformly bound in nice three-quarters buckram and matching boards, spine strips from original wrappers laid-down. The last two volumes are in the original publisher's blue full cloth, gilt lettering on red morocco labels to spine, gilt lettering to cover. In a very good condition. ¶ ~ First edition. Published posthumously. The first four volumes, Spruch 213-506, were published a year after Sethe's death. Sethe's original manuscript was transferred to print by an old, now defunct method called 'Manuldruck', also known as 'Reflex Copying Process'. The four volumes were printed by the inventor of this method, the printers' firm Max Ullman of Zwicaku. In 1962 appeared by Augustin Volume V, Spruch 507-582, to be followed the same year by Volume VI, Index. Also these two volumes are presented here in the first edition, to be distinguished from the second edition of the entire work which also appeared that year. [Provenance:] Some of the volumes occasionally with light marginal annotations in pencil or light pen, few cases within the text, some underlining, few cases in light colour crayon, all in the characteristic neat hand of Prof. Dr. Herman te Velde from whose library this wonderful set comes. Kurt Heinrich Sethe (1869-1934). ~ Beinlich-Seeber 18525 (vols. I-IV).
