Plagiarism in 1880

Those old German journals can be fascinating, once you are used to the language and the script. What about this one:
Literarisches Centralblatt 1881

Source: Literarisches Centralblatt für Deutschland 32 (1881), cols. 811-812 (via GB; two parts put together in Photoshop).

The nice sentence is, of course, “Besonders der letzte Umstand veranlaßt uns zu folgender Erklärung ...” It would seem to me that the plagiarism was not done very intelligently.
