About this Item

8vo., 65 pp. Original illustrated wrappers with black lettering on cover. Title page vignette. Written in 1881 Plisch and Plum is one example for a genre often used by Wilhelm Busch: Boy's Stories, namely this kind where boys would have to learn something through tough lessons. Wilhelm Busch (1832-1908) was a German humorist, poet, illustrator and painter. He published illustrated cautionary tales from 1859, achieving his most notable works in the 1870s. Busch's illustrations used wood engraving, and later, zincography. Busch drew on contemporary parochial and city life, satirizing Catholicism, Philistinism, strict religious morality and bigotry. His comic text was colorful and entertaining, neologisms and other figures of speech, and led to some of his work being banned by the authorities. Busch was influential in both poetry and illustration and became a source for future generations of comic artists. The Katzenjammer Kids was inspired by Busch's Max and Moritz, one of a number of imitations produced in Germany and the United States. His peasants are devoid of sensitivity and village life is marked by a vivid lack of sentiment. The effect of Busch's illustrations are enhanced by his forthright verse, with taunts, derision, ironic twists, exaggeration, ambiguity and startling rhymes. The Wilhelm Busch Prize and the Wilhelm Busch Museum help maintain his legacy. His 175th anniversary in 2007 was celebrated throughout Germany. Busch remains one of the most influential poets and artists in Western Europe, although he was anti-Semitic (given his stereotypical perspectives on Jews) and his stories often canning and simply cruel. Text in German. Cover detached but present. Wraps with light wear and tears along edges, light age-toning of block. Wraps in overall fair, interior in good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 39340
