Thread Name: Origin: High Germany
Subject: RE: High Germany, who wrote it?
The two earliest copies, among several in the Bodley Ballads collection on the web, were printed by Wright of Birmingham (1831-37) and Catnach of London (d 1841). Neither bears an authors name or intitials, and its unlikely this will ever be determined.
