Once in a blue moon, I find a book by Ida Bohatta Morpurgo, and it's always a red letter day.

Presenting HERBST! Illustrated by Ida Bohatta Morpurgo, all text in German.

Part of a series on the four seasons, this is the Autumn edition, although at the end the book spills over into discussions of winter, and ends with a picture of a Christmas scene.

The cover alone is a small masterpiece - a crane and swallows flying south, leaves blowing, the child's blanket and cap strings fluttering. IBM's initials appear on a sheet of paper fluttering in the wind.

Many of the pages are no longer bound in. One illustration has little indented dots as if a child stabbed it lightly with a closed pen

7.5" x 9.5" On the cover, the corners are bumped and there are some tiny stray marks. Back cover also has some marks and scratches.

Despite the age wear, still a great example of this rare little gem. You will love it!!
