In English the title translates to: "Forest and field breviary. songs of Youth"....i think. Can anyone help me translate or tell me about this German book I found today for one dollar. Flipping through it....it is in decent condition. Looks like it was released in 1921, and maybe it is a book of poetry? I found this on wiki about the author:
"Bartsch wrote novels and short stories, which, according to today's critics often glorify the old nostalgic Austria. Gero von Wilpert ( for a very fertile, non-critical narrator of the old Austria - kind with sentimental novels and short stories, cute and bittersweet love stories of playful levity) ... His novel about Franz Schubert, Schwammerl (mushrooms), one of the most successful Austrian books before World War II, served in 1916 as a template to the operetta Das Dreimäderlhaus by the composer Heinrich Berté, which was also filmed several times."
I am not sure but there is a picture of a man, but I don't think it is the author. It looks like....looks like that person signed it in pencil below. I hope that person is famous. Maybe someone was trying to copy the signature above though.
