Possibly the first original 5" Berliner listed on TMF? :D

This is for the ORIGINAL, likely an only-known copy of the recitation of the titles named stanza of Byron's "Manfred". The excerpt is particularly dark and gothic (as Byron usually is...) and was likely picked and recited by Berliner himself. It has been repaired and the disc is now well-above average for a 5" Berliner. The original will also come with copies, so the original can be safely stored and the copies displayed and played. A video of the disc and it playing is below (the text of the poem is as well).

The sale of this disc will be focused primarily on the number of 5" Berliners the potential buyer is willing to loan for duplication, financial consideration will be secondary. Trades for rare and desirable records are also possible.

By thy cold breast and serpent smile,
By thy unfathom'd gulfs of guile,
By that most seeming virtuous eye,
By thy shut soul's hypocrisy;
By the perfection of thine art
Which pass'd for human thine own heart;
By thy delight in others' pain,
And by thy brotherhood of Cain,
I call upon thee! and compel
Thyself to be thy proper Hell!
