"This work was issued as presidential campaign material and went into an unknown number of printings, of which several variants exist. The variants were caused by printing from multiple plates, mixed sheets, corrections and changes in the text, a combination of all three factors. The result is a bibliographical morass. ... BAL considers an absolute sequence a near-impossibility. ... Add to the above the fact that the bindings vary, as do the imprints, and it becomes quite clear that the number of variants is large."--BAL.
Imprint is Wessen variant G; the text and imprint are BAL variant D, imprint b.
