Very old book from 1752 (17)

    Newer Older

    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!
    It says "Satyrische Briefe" ("Satyrical Letters") on top of each page and this book contains the most bizarre letters indeed.
