Germany by Luisa Tschabushnig (£11.50)Publisher: Tiger — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781855012929]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Germany has assumed a significant political and economic role on the world stage and has asserted itself as one of the great industrial powers. However, this modern and industrial nation also contains monuments which bear witness to a rich historical and cultural past and which increase the charm of the landscape. The town of Dinkelsbuhl with its 14th-century houses, towers and ramparts, or Rothenburg ob der Tauber with its splendid Gothic cathedral, are two examples of the many city-museums to be found in Germany. The Rhine valley contains an extraordinary series of romantic, idyllic and historical landscapes and, although it is not far from the country’s modern metropolises, it often gives the impression of being an area in which time has stood still.”Notes: Size: 11¼" x 9¼".

Her enemies claimed that she was more vicious and depraved than Messalina; crueller than Lucrezia Borgia; more despotic than Catherine the Great.
