Saaremaa
13 Saaremaa
Tallinn Kirjastus" Eesti Raamat" 1970 Soft Cover, Stapled Very Good No Jacket 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall Photos 
The largest island of Estonia, located in the Baltic Sea. In the villages there are still stone fences and houses, some with thatched roofs. Roman snails, rare butterflies, and beautiful orchids can be found here. In 1710 it became a part of tsarist Russia. Important as a battle scene in WWI and WWII, it was finally freed in 1991. Since this 148-page book is entirely in Estonian, I will say no more. Front and back covers show stone buildings. No writing or damage.
