A new treasure...

All pre-WWII German editions of Bambi. Eine Lebensgeschichte aus dem Walde are rare. It was banned by the Nationalsozialist government in 1936, and many ended up being burned.

Incredibly, I obtained this 1928 Paul Zsolnay Verlag edition for only €1 on eBay.at. (There is currently a first edition being offered on eBay.uk for £2,000.)

This photo shows the book approximately actual size.

Although I can read German, I am not used to the old Fraktur typeface; it slows me down considerably. Which, perhaps, is not a bad thing. This is a story to be savored, after all – especially so in its original language...
