The following payback from Simon is unique in the way that it evokes a slightly musty secondhand bookstore smell.

Very rare-'Horrido" Meine Jahren gegen die Komunismus im Luftraum Spaniens 1936-1939. The original cover has been torn off, unfortunately as it had been signed by the author, Hauptmann Rheinhardt Bousard.

(killed on the first day of the Battle of Britain by a Walrus amphibian which got onto his tail unseen).

Here is the frontispiece picture of the author
