About this Item

Wide small 4to. Burgundy cloth spine and pictorial paper over boards, pictorial dust jacket. (16pp rectos only). 16 color illustrations and decorative borders, pictorial endpapers. Very good/good plus. Jacket age toned and edgeworn with a few small edge chips, but complete and fairly attractive. A wonderfully tight and handsome undated copy of this children's classic, entirely in German -- the best known title by Swedish illustrator Beskow (1874-1953). Title translation: "Hänschen in the Blueberry Forest: A New Picture Book by Elsa Beskow." Brandt provides the rhymes that accompany Beskow’s delightful images. Charming front cover graphic depicts a young boy in cap and short pants clutching two woven baskets in a wooded setting. Some sources suggest a publication date of circa 1905 -- given the paper and materials, the typefaces and colors, plus a subtitle calling it a "New" picture book, a publication date a few years after the first 1901 appearance seems consistent and logical. Possibly the first German edition? A superb and lovely copy -- and in the rarely present dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 40363
