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. View more info

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 p... View more info

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, ... View more info

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 pag... View more info
