"Kept in a dungeon for his entire childhood, Kaspar Hauser turned up in Nuremberg in 1828 whe he was sixteen, barely able to talk or walk, a "wild child." Within a few years, his gentleness, simplicity, and profundity captured the interest of all Europe. Hauser was murdered just a few years later, in 1833. ... Jeffrey Masson has discovered the earliest document on the Kaspar Hauser story--Georg Friedrich Daumer's notes of Kaspar Hauser's first two years in Daumer's house, long thought to be lost. On the basis of these notes and other documents, some previously unpublished, Masson provides the first complete English translation of ... Anselm von Feuerbach's story. Along with this translation, Masson includes a lenghthy essay in which he explores many of the fascinating issues raised by the case."--Dust jacket
