What a cool item. This is a signed copy of the book Emden Ayesha by the famous captain of the Emden Kapitanleutnant Hellmuth Von Mucke. Interestingly enough, the book was printed in Berlin in 1917. No doubt the story of this famous naval personality was used as propaganda to encourage the German populace in their war effort. Von Mucke was famous for his impressive success in commerce raiding and quickly became a national hero. Obviously this book is written in German. There are some condition issues as per photos which include some spine and binding damage, edge wear to the cover throughout, and unfortunately there is a small tear on the publishing information page opposite the portrait of Von Mucke. One nice point here is that this portrait does have a copied signature from Von Mucke which makes it very easy to see that the signature two pages before that is perfectly legitimate. I am pricing this fairly as I would like to see this go to a home where it would be appreciated.
