Three books written in German: two about the poet Rainer Maria Rilke and one about the painter Michelangelo. The Rilke books have the name of the owner and the date 1939 handwritten on the fly leaf, and one of them has pressed flowers attached to the fly leaf. The art book has the name and the date 1941 handwritten on the fly leaf. These books are attractive and decorative, but they are especially interesting because they were found in an opportunity shop in country Victoria, Australia. I am always intrigued by the stories we will never know about things that arrive in this country.

Books are expensive to send from Australia, but if you are interested please contact me and I can arrange Sea Mail, which is a lot cheaper.
