About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Reineke Fuchs

Publisher: J.G. Cotta [1846], Stuttgart

Publication Date: 1846

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good+

Edition: First Illustrated Edition.


Full deep burgundy morcco, gilt-stamped lettering illustration on front board, lavishly stamped in gilt and blind on rear board and spine, all edges gilt; folio (280 x 350 mm); with wonderful steel engravings throughout, including frontispiece, additional title-p., 35 plates, and head- and tail-pieces. First illustrated edition, first issue, with the plate after p. 42 showing the fox diving under a monk's habit (suggestive of something delightfully naughty, which is perhaps why the plate was later suppressed). Rebacked, with original spine laid down; some very light rubbing along edges of boards; scattered foxing throughout, mostly marginal, though sometimes infringing into the text or illustrations. Wilhelm von Kaulbach's fine engravings and remarkably detailed anthropomorphic animals enliven Goethe's version of the 13th-century allegory, known in English literature as "Reynard the Fox." Spectacular. Bookseller Inventory # D7106
