About this Item

Scarce, with the only library holding the book according to OCLC FirstServe the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek. Folio, 37.5 by 29.5 cm. No. 75 of 500 copies printed. Bound in wraps with cover art that almost could pass for original (unprinted) artwork. Unpaginated. 36 leaves. With 15 mounted color plates depicting the erotic taboo in an Expressionist manner. The illustrations come off as dream or trance-like. The printing is on a thick high grade paper stock, with the section titles and the names of the illustrations the only content of many of the pages. Facing the illustrations are text that do not so much as explain the illustration as provide a context and a background to it, or supplement it in some way. The risque nature and darkish exploration of the project would appear to have anticipated the licentious atmosphere and breaking down of societal inhibitions that characterized Weimar Germany and the Twenties more generally. Soiling on the cloth spine and general wear to the cover. Hardcover. Paper pastedown. Cloth spine. Bookseller Inventory # 004243

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
