Klingspor Kalender 1925 (Beautiful art, German Language)
3 Klingspor Kalender 1925 (Beautiful art, German Language)
Offenbach Gedruckt und Herausgegeben von Gebr. Klingspor 1925 Hard cover Very good 
These little German calendars are exquisitely rendered -- the art is so charming. It's in the GERMAN LANGUAGE, but is so pleasing to the eye that art trumps comprehensiion for non-German speakers. It's a small, very thin book which measures 5-1/2"x7-3/4" and is illustrated with tiny illustrations throughout. The pages aren;t numbered, but I counted 22.

Saengerfest Program June 22-24,1927 Cleveland Public Auditorium (HUGE German-American Musical Event German and English text)
6 Saengerfest Program June 22-24,1927 Cleveland Public Auditorium (HUGE German-American Musical Event German and English text)
Cleveland, Ohio 1927 soft cover Good-plus 
This is a hefty, significant program -- more book than booklet! But the event was so enormous it's worthy of the paper used to print it. Saengerfest was a national song festival which consisted of five concerts held over three days to accommodate the HUGE crowds. Twenty-six trains were charted just to bring in the thousands of PARTICIPANTS. The Cleveland schools also contributed singers. The event was also a commemoration of the centenary of the death of Beethoven. The program measures 7-3/4" x 10-1/4" and is very tightly bound with complete spine strip. Onlt fault is light some soiling to cover front and back. It has been cleaned by me, but it proved impervious. Pages are pristine. The text is in both GERMAN AND ENGLISH and is illustrated with photographs. Pages are not numbered but the program measures almost a half inch thick. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, BUT PLEASE CONTACT US WITH DESTINATION SO WE CAN QUOTE EXACT SHIPPING COST.

Rainer Maria Rilke Poems from the Book of Hours 1941, Rilke, Rainer Maria
14 Rilke, Rainer Maria Rainer Maria Rilke Poems from the Book of Hours 1941
Norfolk, Connecticut New Directions 1941 fourth printing Hard cover Fine condition No dustjacket 
Rilke is one of my favorites, so I not only found a beautiful copy of this book which announced on the bottom of the title page that Rilke was the poet of the year. Rilke's Book of Hours falls into three parts: The Book of Monkish Life composed in 1899; The Book of Pilgrimage in 1901; and The Book of Poverty and Death in 1903. The poems are in both the GERMAN language on the left side of the page and English across from it. Here's a quick quote from one of my favorites, "You, neighbor God, if sometimes in the night I rouse you with loud knocking. I do so only because I seldom hear you breathe." The book measures 6" x 9" and has 47 pristine pages. (Gift Box 3)

Deutschland Katalog Helme and Mutzen der Armee 1871-1945 (Military Helmets and Headgear), Schultz, Gerd M.
15 Schultz, Gerd M. Deutschland Katalog Helme and Mutzen der Armee 1871-1945 (Military Helmets and Headgear)
Munich, Germany 1978 Card cover Very good condition 
I bought several of these German catalogs from the estate of a single owner who collected both U.S. and German medals and uniform accoutrements. This one covers helmets and other headgear from Germany. The text is in German and each item is provided with a drawing which helps greatly if you don't read the language. Once you see the item you're looking for it's easy to use an online translator for the details. The catalog measures a diminutive 4-1/4" x 5-3/4" with 304 pages including a few blank ones for notes which were never used.
