Des Knaben Wunderhorn: Alte deutsche Lieder (German; “The Boy’s Magic Horn: Old German Songs”) is a collection of German folk poems and songs edited by Achim von Arnim and Clemens Brentano. The book was published in three editions: the first in 1805 followed by two more volumes in 1808. The collection of love, soldiers, wandering, and children’s songs was an important source of idealized folklore in the Romantic nationalism of the 19th century. Wikipedia
