About this Item

First edition, oblong 8vo; pp. 16 & 48 plain photographic plates; loose as issued in green stiff paper chemise embossed in gilt on upper cover, pamphlet staplebound in self-wrappers; fine. Title on upper chemise cover: "Hartwig & Vogel A.G. Dresden: Schokolade, Kakao, Dessert." Beautifully designed photographic account of the process of making chocolate from the German chocolatier and confectioner Hartwig & Vogel. The plates are ordered chronologically, starting with the raw cacao fruit, shots of native workers (whether from Ecuador, Venezuela, Brasil, Trinidad, Mexico, or Ceylon, is left unclear) picking and sorting the ripe fruit, its exportation, and finally the refinement and production of candies and chocolates. The first eight plates depict the early phases of the process; the latter 40 show industrial scenes in the company's factory, where it is clear that the majority of the workers were women. The accompanying pamphlet gives a brief history of chocolate, from its European discovery in Mexico in the 16th century, as well as statistical tables, an explanation on why Hartwig & Vogel is the best chocolate factory in Germany (and beyond), and written descriptions of how chocolates and confections are made.Uncommon; 2 copies located in OCLC, none outside Germany.
