Ziegelbrenner Collection, 1976

This collected volume of all 40 Ziegelbrenner issues was published in Berlin in 1976 and included an afterword by Rolf Recknagel, the Leipzig literary historian who had first posited that Ret Marut and B. Traven were the same man. Advertising for this book calls the Ziegelbrenner a "revolutionary magazine -- completely lost in the intervening years -- that was written, edited, printed and published between September 1, 1917 and December 21, 1921 in Munich, by a friend of Gustav Landauer and Kurt Eisner who called himself Ret Marut, Fred Maruth or Richard Maurhut. Because of his participation in the founding of the Bavarian Republic of Councils he was condemned to death, but was able to escape to Mexico." Here he re-emerged as the writer B. Traven.
