BOOK BOX. Non-book, containing essential survival tools.

NP. ND. - Made in Germany. Circa 1938 - 1950.

4to-sized. (27.5 x 20.5 x 5.8 cm) box consisting of two 19th-century half calf bindings with marbled boards and rich gilt spines, thus resembling a pile of two books. A very nice 'book-alike', hiding top-quality contents in excellent condition: inside is a fine, large compass in a wooden box, an Austrian stainless steel Imco Triplex windproof lighter (probably dating from 1937), a vintage French Laguiole folded knife, an octagonal glass, and a small, full bottle with leather cover and bronze vignette with mother-of-pearl inlay mounted, and original bottle cap with an early Jägermeister logo. The Jägermeister brand was launched in 1934 and almost immediately quite successful. All items are neatly arranged in a custom-made frame with recesses with marbled sides. Outside with the usual wear (as intended, to look inconspicuous and innocent), inside in fine, clean condition.
