Berlin-Treptow, Bernhard Zack's Verlag, 1906. 21 x 17 cm. Original wrappers. 64 p. Uncut. First edition. A bit creased and worn. With owner's stamp of Roeland van Ruijven."Who Are We?" Poignant, direct, emotional gay love poetry, rhythmical singing about longing and sorrow. Second of the Buecher der namenlosen Liebe, in first edition, luxuriantly printed in 1000 copies on Zanders Bütten with endpapers of thin Japanese paper, and covers of Imperial Japanese (printed in gold).Of the planned six Books of Nameless Love, two were first published together in 1906 (this is one of these). After about 200-250 numbered copies had been sold, they were forbidden and were seized by the police. Part of this first edition was recovered by Mackay after 1918 and sold - with a pen line in the place of the edition number. This is one of these unnumbered copies. Of the seven book publications under Mackay's pseudonym Sagitta during his life (1864-1933) this is the second: SAGITTA 02 (1906). Roeland van Ruijven was a minor theatre author, who published one story about homosexuality in 1906.
