1 Kerr, Alfred Yankee-Land - Eine Reise
Berlin R. Mosse Buchverlag 1925 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good 
206, [1] & [1,ad] pages; Publisher's linen-backed yellow boards. Spine lettered in gilt, front cover with a jazzy and bold lettering in black. First edition / Erste Ausgabe. Alfred Kerr (1867 1948), born Alfred Kempner, was an influential German theater critic and essayist. With the publisher Paul Cassirer he co-founded the influential artistic review "Pan" in 1910. This volume describes Kerr's travels to the US. In 1933 Kerr and his family fled Germany for France via Czechoslovakia and Switzerland. They moved on to London in 1935. In May of 1933, his books were among the many burned by the Nazi officials. Luckily, this copy of Yankee-Land has survived -- in clean, tight and unmarked condition. The binding shows minor wear, with rubbing at the spine ends, and short splits along the top gutters of the spine. The yellow boards are a bit toned at the edges, with some minor lifting along the corners and the edges. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
