Klassisches Vergissmeinnicht: Mit Ausspruchen von Goethe.

Lahr in Baden, Germany: Moriz Schauenburg, n.y. Hardcover. 48mo. Patterned green paper over boards with gilt lettering, slipcase. (Ca. 350pp). Color frontispiece, 2 full-page color plates, floral endpapers. Near fine/very good. Faintest of slipcase edgewear. Item #39901

A tight and lovely copy of this undated (but circa 1910) daily quotation collection, entirely in German, with a different quotation for every day f the year. The color plates are especially pristine. Title translation: "Classical Forget-Me-Not." A few pages have small faintly pencilled comments, as for instance on July 18 (in English): "The last flower from Briverton when we left," complete with tiny dried flower. A charmer -- not quite a miniature book (which are less than 3"), but at 3 7/8" not far from it!
