For all those who trembled at the prospect of chopped-off thumbs, catching fire or being dipped in ink, here's an exquisite refinement to Hoffman's cautionary tales: Struwwelpeter in Latin. This very special edition reproduces Hoffmann's original drawings – like Edward Lear, he preferred his own amateurish efforts to refined illustrations – with Eduard Bornemann's 1956 Latin translation. This is a German edition and the translator's notes (in a separate booklet) are in German.
