Offered for sale is a book in German titled, "Die Schwarze Galeere". The book is by Wilhelm Raabe. This was first printed in 1861 with US copyright 1913 and printed 1924. The book is an Oxford German Series by Oxford University Press New York. There are some pretty amazing drawing illustrations in this book.

You would think a German book would have few ties to Illinois but there are 3.
1) General Editor was Julius Goebel, Ph.D.; Professor of Germanic Languages at the University of Illinois.
2) Edited with introduction, notes and vocabulary by Charles Allyn Williams, Ph.D.: Assistant Professor of German at the University of Illinois.
3) The inside cover is signed by Wilbur Dale Dersch, German Bradley's Polytechnic Institute and dated 1932. William Dersch was a prominent Peoria Attorney.
The book measures 7-1/4" x 5" x 3/4". The book has wear but not bad for its age.
