When I Was a Little Boy
The early life of Erich Kastner, creator of Emil and the Detectives
First UK edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 14cm, 187pp.
The early autobiography of Erich Kastner, creator of Emil and the Detectives, as he describes family life and growing up in Dresden in the early twentieth century. Illustrated with line drawings.
A good reading copy. The book is foxed to the endpapers and pastedowns but the main body of text is in good condition. The dustwrapper is rather tatty and scuffed but is now within a protective sleeve.
