The German Enigma

By: Bourdon, Georges

Price: £18.00

Publisher: London, Dent: 1914

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 000594

First edition.

The German Enigma of Monsieur Bourdon is mainly an objective, impartial, and impersonal study, and the author has been careful not to obtrude his own private views.
