Today I have bitten in the sour apple to buy Illustriertes Handbuch der neuesten praktischen und wissenschaftlichen Zuschneidekunst für Herrenkleidermacher System der Zukunft, 10. Auflage, 1931. Müller, Michael und Franz Xaver Müller. I cost a fortune. The book is only for collectors, as the system is way too old for use today. It is very hard to find this book in a nice condition. There is another one of this kind available, it also cost a fortune. It might have the same nice condition.
The book arrived in sloppy wrapping and got a very light ding at the spine, still not a big deal but sad. I paid 200$. Nevertheless, the book is in great condition and hard to find so. Most of those editions are in bad conditions because they had to survive WW2.
