An unusual format for a biography of the great German composer Richard Wagner. Printed only in 100 copies, and richly illustrated with facsimiles of documents, the book covers Wagner's early years. Burrell's magnum opus is considered a great rarity, with approximately forty copies recorded in libraries of the United States and Europe.
