Although set in Germany, Miss Träumerei: A Weimar Idyl was written and published only in America. Traumerei not only is the name of a romantic piano piece by Schumann, but when translated means dreaming. The author is, in fact, better known as a musician than as a writer, having studied under Liszt during the late 1850s, as well as founding the famous Bagby Musical Mornings at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The image itself reflects Reed's fondness for the then-popular Japanese style of printing.
