Complete run of the pioneering journal The Pennsylvania German, uniformly bound in decorated wraps, variously paginated. All issues complete and intact, individually selected, most showing only modest shelf/handling wear and the inevitable chipping to spine panels typical of this issue, most VG or better, many Near Fine, some early issues with former owner's signature on front cover. All issues individually sleeved with backing boards for protection. Vols. I-VI issued quarterly (4/year), Vol. VIII in 8 issues, Vols. VIII-XII issued monthly (12/year), Vol. XIII w/ 12 issues in 10, Vols. XIV, XV each in 3 issues, thus 110 issues total. (Vols. XIII-XV otherwise numbered as New Series, Vols. I-III.) Early issues royal 8vo, later issues 4to. Initiated in Jan. 1900 by Rev. Croll, The Pennsylvania-German was taken over by H. W. Kriebel and issued in a slightly taller format commencing with Vol. VII in 1906, changing format again beginning with Vol. XIII (New Series, Vol. I). Meant to capitalize upon the wide-ranging interest in the Pennsylvania German Society annual volumes begun in 1893, The Pennsylvania-German initiated a new era in ethnic identity and offered a variety of both entertaining and scholarly articles focusing on various aspects of PA German folklife. Scarce in any form, virtually never offered complete.
