About this Item

Eight large loose exquisitely hand-colored lithographs on heavyweight stock in deluxe red leather folio binder deeply embossed with a filigree design on both the front and back. The front side has printed in gilt a large image of a winged angel-lady pouring water from a vase into a lily pond, with the title and artists name in gilt below. This front image, enclosed in gilt filigree, is ascribed at the lower edge to R. Gerhold, Leipzig. Inside the binder, which has hinged wings to enclose the prints, is a sticker identifiying the printer as Ferd. Haller, Buchbinder, Leipzig. The eight prints in the folio each bear the names of the artist KONIG and the printer JG Bach, Leipzig. The prints are entitled (in German, English, and French) as follows: 1) Himmelsschlussel (Primrose/Primevere), 2) Sommernachtstraum (Midsummer Nights Dream/Songe d�une nuit d�ete), 3) Schneeglockchen (Snow Drop/Perce-neige), 4) Das Grosse Grune Heupferd (Grass-hopper/Sauterelle), 5) Glockenblume (Bell-flower/Campanule), 6) Trauermantel (Morio/Vulcain), 7) Segelfalter (Swallow-tail/Papillon machaon), and 8) Seerose (Water-lily/Neuuphar blanc). Each print occupies approximately 8� x 11� on a 12� x 16-1/2� white heavyweight board. Undated (1870s?). The binder has a cracked and loose hinge, also the interior wings are cracked and loose at the hinges, but the front gilt image and title printing are very good and bright, and the only other flaws are light edgewear and bumped tips. The interior prints are in excellent condition with beautifully delicate colors, and with some edge discoloration that does not come close to the image areas. In addition, print 8 only has some edge water-stains that do not affect the image area. Each of these prints is suitable for framing as separate and beautiful works of art. Extremely rare and unusual offering. 8 large hand-colored lithographs in red leather folio binder; VG as follows: Bookseller Inventory # 1699
