From Brehm's Thierleben Alfred Brehm, illus. by Frederich Schiller. 1870. This belonged to my second great grandfather Hindermann.

Anybody read German? This is one of my ancestral books. Again, this is what happens when you have a Swiss man marrying a New Orleans French-Creole Belle in your family tree but you have a 20th century Louisiana public school education. You have books in languages you can't read.

shawnmooney It's a Harry Potter translation. JUST KIDDING. ;) 3y
Seshat Lol, @shawnmooney . I found out what it is. Brehm's Life of Animals. 3y
Seshat @shawnmooney, I am having a lot of fun now imaging what a Harry Potter series written in 1868 would be like. 3y
