About this Item

8vo. 21 by 17 cm. Unpaginated, 30 leaves, with twelve silhouette drawings, four of which have some slightly crudely added color to the precise black ink, and facing each sihouette is orginal verse handwritten in Sütterlin Schrift, which makes it difficult for us to read fully although it is done with a highly regular, neat hand. But even excluding the poetry, the sihouettes are very appealing and we assume are original, although we can't prove that they aren't copied from something else. These drawings appear to tell the story of one child, Hans. We first see him in a typical day. We see his house, his watching other children frolicking, his being instructed by his mother, his kneeling in prayer, an angel descending to him while he sleeps. Is he praying for a baby sister? Next an infant is born, and the mother is nursing the baby as in another illustration, the father is counseling his son about the newborn. In the final illustration the boy is playing with his younger sister. Light soiling to the wraps. Bookseller Inventory # 003574

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
