Bookplate is a white and red embossed cartouche with the Rothchild family crest. Signed by Tessa Henckel Donnersmarck on free front endpaper. Illustrated half-title page. In 1794 Goethe adapted a medieval version of Reynard the Fox to produce this epic poem. Supposedly the poem is thought to have been influenced by the events of the French Revolution. Delightfully illustrated with 36 full-page steel engravings by the German artist Wilhelm von Kaulbach (1805-1874), as well as 24 woodcut-vignettes. Plates engraved by R. Rahn and A. Schleich. Includes the famous, humorous illustration which at the time was banned for moral reasons (following page 42). This plate is missing in most editions. Each engraving protected by tissue guard, foxing to tissue. Minor foxing to margin of plates, few plates slightly affected. Last page with "Register der Stahlstiche für den Buchbinder" (Register of the steel engravings for the bookbinder). Text in German, Gothic script. Very good condition. Tight copy in a beautiful binding with stunning gilt gauffered edges. * Veronika Henckel von Donnersmarck (Baroness von Donnersmarck, 1902-1964) was the wife of Erich von Goldschmidt Rothschild (1899-1987). Erich was the son of Max von Goldschmidt whose marriage to Minna von Rothschild led to the combining and creation of the double name Goldschmidt-Rothschild. Bookseller Inventory # 21270
