About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Feine Havannas by Kempner-Hochstadt, Max.


Book. 8vo - over 7¾. 160 pp. With over 50 illustrations in color by C. Köystrand, C. Krejeif, G. Roland and others. 8½x5½, bound between two wooden pieces of a cigar box (or imitating such) with "Feine Havannas/Flor Fina" emblem stamped on front cover, cloth spine. Illustrations of ladies, many in their undergarments, are appropriate to this collection of slightly salacious jokes and tales, all calculated to amuse the smoking man, hence the binding. Has two chromolithograph cigar labels on spine and cover, and two larger cigar labels making up the front endpapers, as well as a chromolithograph ribbon seal that is now broken (piece broken off remains), but largely intact and laid in. The author, Max Kempner-Hochstadt, was known in his day mostly as a playwright of light fare, and some of his stage comedies became the basis for operettas by the likes of Eduard Kunneke. Of Jewish extraction, his work was boycotted by the Nazis after their rise to power and Kempner-Hochstadt fled to Paris where he died, age 70, penniless. Very rare book, with only other copy located currently in the Berlin Staatsbibliothek. Cigar label on spine with wear, light shelf wear, ribbon seal is chipped and torn with some tape repair. Slight bowing to the boards. Book itself is very tight, and pages are immaculate, with light age toning. Near fine. Bookseller Inventory #
