Title: VINETA, Ein moderne Hundstagsphantasie
Description: Dresden und Leipzig, Verlag von Carl Reissner, 1901. 0 pp. Hardcover. [iv],221pp 8vo original dark blue cloth decorated in black and lettered in gold. Owner's written name (Leister) and small name stamp (of Rudolf Opfermann) on half-title. The poor quality paper is browning, otherwise a very good copy of an extremely scarce book, a fantasy set in the mythical sunken Baltic city. The book is listed in the author's entry in Franz Brümmer: Lexikon der deutschen Dichter und Prosaisten vom Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts bis zur Gegenwart, but no copies located in World Cat or KVK. The author, best known for Der grosse Pan, remains a partial mystery herself, but her birth date is surely confirmed as 1856 (6 Dec.) by her confirmation entry on 29 March 1874 which gives her mother's maiden name as WITTICH (Kirchenregister der evang. Mennonitengemeinde zu Elbing- Ellerwald 1857-1895 (KB EL 12). Very Good.
