With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Fritz Baumgarten (1883-1966) Unsere Haustiere Ein Tier-Bilderbuch. No. 7204
Heavy Card Boards Very Good Plus 
Five leaves of thick card, including the covers, and with eight pages of color illustrations of domestic animals, two per page, plus the illustration on the cover. Scarce. A few copies turn up on OCLC, but these are all later editions except possibly one, which is dated 1936. This copy is undated, given the use of Suetterlin Schrift on the front cover, a type of cursive pushed in German schools between 1935 and 1941, when it became officially banned, this is almost certainly the same edition, although the appearance of the book otherwise would suggest a slightly earlier issue. While the Suetterlin Schrift is now indecipherable to people not brought up with it, the Gothic Fraktur type used in the body of the work is much more accessible as well as ornamental. Age toning more pronounced on the edges. Otherwise clean and tight. The card is sturdy as can be. The spine band has some wear at the extremities. 
Price: 300.00 USD
