About this Item

Octavo. 28ff. From an edition of 800 copies, this is one of 100 signed by the illustrator. With twenty-five full-page illustrations from drawings by Wolf depicting a wide and disturbing array of monsters. Wolf, who studied under Hans Thoma, fled Germany in 1938, settling in the U.S., where he continued his work as an illustrator. One of his more noteworthy contributions was the set of thirty-two woodcuts he produced for The Book of Job, published by the Cummington Press in 1944. The frontispiece of that work bears a compositional similarity to an image in this earlier work. Here, we see a bearded man gazing skyward with a look of exquisite agony, while in Job, the frontispiece depicts the moment in which the beset patriarch screams out from all the injustices that have befallen him. Through the emotions of his characters, one can see Wolf's work as an artistic reaction to the cultural turmoil he experienced in Weimar Germany. Publisher's green cloth-backed printed boards show a small tear to spine head, otherwise a nearly fine copy of a rather scarce book. Bookseller Inventory # 25891
