Die Schönheit - Heft 5 - Dresden, Verlag der Schönheit, 1927 - 84 pp., including 22 on Mata Hari
Paperback, 24.5 × 17.5 cm, German text.

Condition: good, some scattered light discolouration.

Offered is an issue of the German magazine Die Schönheit from 1927. The magazine is, according to the publisher’s imprint, a “mit Bildern geschmückte Monatsschrift für Kunst und Leben”, and existed from 1902 to 1929. This is a somewhat euphemistic description, because the magazine mainly focused on Freikörperkultur, the rather odd mix of nudism and eroticism. This issue is special because it contains a comprehensive article about Mata Hari. The reason for the article was the publication of the German edition of the book “Mata Hari: das Geheimnis ihres Lebens und ihres Todes” by E. Gomez Carrillo, for which a full-page advertisement, with photo, is included. This is a special and extremely rare magazine. I have not been able to find a second copy on the internet, not even in Germany; the same goes for these photos.
