First edition. Most was a socialist journalist and a member of the German Reichstag. The violence of his agitation resulted in numerous arrests, and it is said that he was once investigated in more than 40 cases in a single year. Most broke with the German Social-Democratic Party in 1880 and spent the rest of his life as an anarchist agitator in the USA.

Repairs to first two and final leaves, not affecting the text. From the library of the Zionist leader Daniel Pasmanik (1869-1930) with his handwritten ownership, dated 28 Feb. 1890.
