BAC: British Art Center copy in publisher's illustrated dust jacket.
"Since the original Brush Up Your German appeared eight years ago some 50,000 copies of it have been sold. But much has happened in those eight years--National Socialism for one thing, and 'Greater' Germany for another. So Herr Meyer and his charming wife Ilse go back to see just what has happened ... Matters are slightly complicated by the fact that Herr Meyer has a non-Aryan great-aunt somewhere up the family tree. But this, like all the other troubles which beset the family, is smoothed over, and the Meyers glide over the Autobahnen, rush along in the 'Flying Frankfurter' [an express train], ... or go and buy a wood-pulp suit as jauntily as ever"--Dust jacket, front front flap.
