About this Item

Size of the binding: 7 3/4 inches x 10 3/4 in., three extra-illustrations, including the signed sentiment sheet; limitation page; frontispiece with title-printed tissue guard; design title-page printed in red and black, contents, list of illustrations. xx, pp. [1]-[210] + printer's page with printer's name on the reverse; illustrated with 30 color illustrations by Willy Pogany with printed tissue guards, initial letters, decorations. Preface by Roger Ingpen, dated September 1908; appendixes & notes. The extra-illustrations consist of two mounted portraits of Goethe: a steel engraved portrait of the young Goethe (unsigned), and an etching of the older Goethe: Pendleton, Boston (etched by J. Eddy), this shows some tan spotting; and a mounted sentiment, written out in German calligraphic script with place and date, this has then been signed by Goethe, and by G. Schwab who mentions that the signature only is in Goethe's hand. Bound in full, dark green crushed morocco leather with four raised bands on the spine, with gilt title and decorations, the covers show elaborate gilt borders with red leather inlaid roses in the corners, inner doublures of red morroco with gilt dentelles on wide dark green leather turn-ins, leather inner hinges, top-edge gilt, red silk bookmarker ribbon bound in. A very high quality binding, but without a binder's name present. The spine shows some age-related fading to tan of the green leather. The mounted Goethe item bears a tiny paper label at the top: GOETHE, and is four lines of German script (possibly a quote from Faust?), and is dated Weimar 29 December, 1823, with the signature: J W Goethe under the calligraphic sentiment; at the bottom is added in ink: Nota, Nur die Unterschrift ist von Goethes Hand. G. Schwab. Under this are light penciled notes: G. Schwab, died 1850 Lyric Poet [probably Gustav Schwab; 1792-1850]. This mounted sheet shows some age-realted tanning. This specially bound, low-numbered copy, might have been extra-illustrated by the publisher, or specially produced for a bookseller. Weight: 4 lbs. Postage is extra on this item.
