Wrappers with light wear along edges and rubbed. Wrappers in overall good+, interior in very good condition. It is signed by H. M. Enzensberger on the inside cover and this signature warrents a short trip down memory lane: I don't remember which year it was, well, I really don't. Hans Magnus Enzensberger during an appearance in Los Angeles at the Goethe Institute. I was offering about a dozen of his titles and couldn't help but notice: Hans Magnus stayed next to my display of his books all evening; away from the buzz crowd around the buffet in the gallery of the Goethe Institute. I was selling quite some books that evening and always remembered and appreciated his unexpected gesture. Cees Nooteboom and I were shooting the breeze next to busy Magnus fielding questions and signing books. I am not sure why Cees and I found pleasure in asking Magnus to sign the #119 Kursbuch on the body of the nude on the cover. So far I haven't figured out who the female nude on the cover is, no credit in the Kursbuch itself, however, at that moment Cees and I thought it to be interesting to see how Magnus would react to my request to sign the copy of the Kursbuch 119 across the nude body, with a smirk on our faces, of course. Well, Hans Magnus found my request a little over the top and, with a quick reference to him not being envolved in the Kursbuch anymore, proceeded though and signed on the inside cover.
