16mo, Illustrated cream boards, pp110. Rare first edition in very good condition. Original slipcase also in very good condition. Some light foxing throughout. Some light darkening to spine of both book and slipcase, presumably from exposure to sunlight over the years. All in all an excellent and complete copy of a rare title. Complete text in German. Roth’s “Die Legende vom heiligen Trinker”, published posthumously in 1939, tells the brief odyssey of a homeless alcoholic attempting to settle his debts.
