Die Verfassungen der Vereinigten Staaten von Nord-Amerika, der Freistaaten Pennsylvania und Texas, der Königreiche Belgien und Norwegen, die Bundesverfassung der Schweiz und die Englische Staatsverfassung.

Publisher's original blind-stamped cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on the spine.
Simon Traugott Bromme (1802-1866) sought to further German immigration to the United States both as a public advocate and as an entrepreneurial author and book seller. Realizing that there was a market for guides that German immigrants could use to help orient themselves in their adopted land, he leveraged the first-hand knowledge that he had acquired living and traveling throughout North America, and his general knowledge of the region acquired through other sources, to provide a valuable service to Germans who were trying to escape poor economic or political circumstances in their homeland. Of particular note, this work contains a chapter with a German translation of the Texas constitution.
Condition: Very good. Modest shelf-wear at the extremities with some browning to spine. Contents with light to moderate scattered foxing.
