They form the second and third parts of a trilogy subtitled Ein dramatisches Gedicht. Wallensteins Lager, the first part, is, effectively, a light-hearted prelude, while Die Piccolomini and Wallensteins Tod constitute the main interest of the tragedy. The work was based on the life of the Bohemian soldier and nobleman Albrecht von Wallenstein, 1583-1634, a celebrated figure in the Thirty Years? War. These are the first English translations. The Piccolomini bound without the separate titlepage. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
