The title reflects the concept of Lithuania in the middle of the 19th century. The neo-Lithuanians of today had not entered the scene yet. Lithuania was a German province like Bavaria or Swabia.
Was Bavaria or Swabia inhabited by the Lithuanians? Well, Lithuania in the middle of the 19th century had other meanings as well, and the meaning presented in this book is not even the dominant meaning.
