Very old book - from 1752 (10)

"Satyrische Schriften/Briefe" ("Satyrical Letters"), containing quite weird and funny letters between all sorts of people fom all walks of life in charming old-fashioned German.

I got this in a shop for antique books in Schwabing, the university quarter in Munich, Germany -- very cheap because the title pages were missing. "1752" was handwritten ... and it sure looks and feels like it!

 

One of several photos of the same book, all tagged "1752", e.g.
