Traces

I have a penchant for old books, the older the better. And one thing I find particularly fascinating about them are the traces they bear of their former owners. Like this inscription in a 1910 copy of a book by Otto Julius Bierbaum. The message (in German) is written in a dated script I could hardly decipher:

A happy return home wishes Mizzi Tasch.
Vienna 21, Langenzersdorf, Tulzgasse …
