Received from the Department of Culture. In existence there since the 1980s. Formerly owned by Eugen Berthold Auerbach, who pasted his ex-libris into the book, and Berthold Auerbach, who signed the endpaper by hand. Berthold Auerbach, actually Moses Baruch Auerbacher, (born 28.02.1812 in Nordstetten (today part of Horb); died 8.02.1882 in Cannes) was a Jewish German writer. His son Eugen Berthold Auerbach (1852-1922) was a lawyer and notary with his own law office in Berlin, Lindenstraße. His sons Peter (born 1892 in Berlin, died 25.11.1941) and Kurt (born 1893 in Berlin, died 24.03.1941) were anti-Semitically persecuted and murdered. Two grandsons are known. Other previous owners of the book are unknown.
