German Language Book on Posters

Unfortunately I do not speak German so you’re really on your own here! This is a small book (approximately 4.5 x 6.5 inches) with 300 pages. It appears to be a reference guide for posters, but they are not all magic posters. There is at least one Houdini poster I found but most seem to be not magic related. There are many color photos of posters and although it is all in German the pictures tell a pretty good story. It is copyright 1979 and appears to be a first edition. I think this would be a useful book for any fan of posters. Click on any thumbnail to enlarge the photo. $20.00
