Summary (From the publisher):

This is the first English translation of a work by Johann Beer. Beer (1655-1700) is well known as the «successor» of Grimmelshausen in the genre of the picaresque novel. Beer's Die kurtzweiligen Sommertäge is rightly considered one of the most important (and readable!) novels of the seventeenth century. The novel documents in a humorous way the adventuresome life of the Austrian nobility in the 17th century and provides a rare glimpse into the everday life and spirit of this little-known period.
