1 Sebald, W. G. ; Bell, Anthea (translator) Austerlitz
New York, NY, U.S.A. Random House, Incorporated 2001 0375504834 / 9780375504839 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
[2001]. As New in an As New dustjacket. Brown boards with a black, silver-stamped backstrip. Octavo. Fore-edge untrimmed. 298pps. Stated First Edition. A flawless collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine; the original price is intact. ".Over thirty years, in the course of conversations that take place across Europe, a man named Jacques Austerlitz tells a nameless companion of his ongoing struggle with the riddle of his identity. A small child when he immigrates alone to England in the summer of 1939, Austerlitz is told nothing of his real family by the Welsh couple who raise him, and he strains to orient himself in a world whose natural reference points have been obliterated. When he is a much older man, fleeting childhood memories return to him, and he obeys an instinct he only dimly understands and follows their trail back to the vanished world he left behind a half century before, the void at the heart of twentieth-century Europe." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.

3 Sebald, W. G. Nach Der Natur (From Nature)
Nordlingen, Germany Franz Greno 1988 3891904363 / 9783891904367 First Edition Hard Cover Becker, Thomas 
Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in black. Quarto. 99pps., plus six double-page photos (including the endpapers) by Thomas Becker. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a small closed tear at the top of the front panel. A long poem in three sections. Sebald's first book-length, literary publication -- issued at a time when he had little public profile, with only a couple of academic pieces to his credit along with poems in various periodicals. ".Der Text, der dank seiner besonderen sprachlichen Qualitat, wenn gleich ohne Metrik und Reim, den Charakter eines langen Gedichts hat, beschreibt in der Form weitgespannter Denkbilder jene schmerzhaften Stellen, an denen die Koordinaten von Natur, Kunst und Gesellschaft sich uberschneiden. Eine lange Zeit, von 1500 bis in die fur den Schreibenden kaum erst zuruckliegende Vergangenheit, wird durchquert. Der unbekannte Grunewald, der ein eingezogen und melancholisches Leben gefuhrt hat, und das furchtbare Unternehmen der Beringschen Alaska-Expedition bilden die historischen Vorwurfe fur unseren Willen, alles in Erfahrung zu bringen. Das Stillschweigen der Natur und die Antwort des Menschen, seine Gefuhle und seine Gewalt, werden begreifbar als ein zur Selbstzerstorung tendierendes System, dem sich auch die Kunst nicht entziehen kann. Und dennoch zeigen diese Prosagedichte, wie man bisweilen abheben kann von der Erde." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books.
