Some scanned borders and other images from «Im Wechsel Der Tage» [In the change of our days] by Adolf Brennecke, circa 1885. I bought this book at Antikvariát Dlážděná, a bookshop with low prices (or so it seemed to me) and exceptionally helpful staff, conveniently located in Prague. If you happen to be in Prague. Not too far from the railway station.

Quarto, 184pp, many illustrations.

In the change of days. Our seasons of jewelry, art and poetry. A selection from the works of our best patriotic poet. With numerous woodcuts of drawings outstanding artist and photogravures after the originals of FA Kaulbach, C. Niczky, Th. von der Beek and R. Epp.
