[002966] [Revolution of 1848 in Germany]; Baader, Massaloup and Wiss (Eds). Der Demokrat No.1, 22. Mai [The Democrat No.1, 22nd of May]. Berlin: Ferd. Reichardt & Co., 1848. First Edition. 4to. Unbound. Newspaper. Good. Single sheet folded into 8pp, full sheet approximately 340mm x 520mm in size.

Lightly browned, with several spots of light staining, especially to final page, but with no loss of sense.

The first issue of ‘The Democrat’, published in Berlin. Sperber’s Rhineland Radicals – The Democratic Movement and the Revolution of 1848-1849,┬ámentions this title, but this appears to be a different paper with the same name as the one Sperber discusses being produced in Mainz (see pages 231-233).

Appears to be radical in tone, with several mentions of ‘arbeit’ and ‘arbeiters’
