¶ Schultz — Deutsches leben (1892)

Comments Off on ¶ Schultz — Deutsches leben (1892)

Schultz, Alwin. Deutsches leben im XIV. und XV. Jahrhundert. 2 vols. Vienna: F. Temsky, 1892

Illustrated.

The Wellcome Library catalogue attributes its copy to Morris’s library, but though the book has not been rebound, there are no marks of ownership in that copy. We think it is more likely that the Wellcome sold Morris’s copy as a duplicate.

Provenance: Morris. — Richard Bennett. — Sotheby 1898, lot 1058 (sold to Henry Wellcome for £3 12s.). — Henry Wellcome. — Unlocated.
