The former title a scarce German-language edition of "The Famous Speeches of the Eight Chicago Anarchists" delivered in court, described as one of "the most important sources on the Haymarket affair" (EGBERT II, p. 168). Bound with an unrecorded novel by the Westphalian novelist Levin Schücking, the imprint based on the bookseller rubberstamp and similar German-American titles published by the "Herold" in the same decade.
