Jeremias Gotthelf, The Black Spider

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. Just discovered your fascinating blog via Neglected Books site. I, too, love book covers, dust jackets, etc. Take a look at the Milton Glaser cover for Knut Hamsun's Mysteries (FSG, 1971). Love the Karinthy and Michaux covers, too.

  2. Thank you Rather Ripped, I'll check out that Hamsun cover. You can send me a scan of it and I'll post it today. I need to add Neglected Books to my links (actually, I need to add a ton of links!). It's a great resource.

  3. Cool graphics below your blog title (stacks of string bound newspaper?)

    You could probably lose the blog's subtitle now that you have those images. They are competing for space discordantly.
