Books Available - Large sets of primary and secondary works in German & English

Monday, March 14, 2022

The following message is from David John, Retired professor, University of Waterloo:

Hello all,

I retired a few years ago and doubt that I will do any further Germanistik research from now on.

During my career I acquired several large sets of primary and secondary works in German and English which I shall no longer need when lying on a beach in Malta and elsewhere. These are listed below.

I would be pleased if you would like to have them for your future teaching and research, or for your departmental or university library. I would get them to you if you could collect them from my home (or somewhere in between); otherwise you would have to cover the costs of my sending them to you by parcel post.

These are the books:

De Boor / Newald. Geschichte der deutschen Literatur.  Vols. I-???. München: Beck, 1957. Hardcover.

Bertolt Brecht. Gesammelte Werke in acht Bänden. Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp. Darmstadt: Moderner Buch-Club. 1967. Hardcover.
