About this Item

Quarter black morocco and grey cloth, gilt-stamped lettering on spine; glassine dust jacket; slipcase. With wood-cut illustrations by Ackermann, numerous in text, 10 full-page. Number 514 from a limited edition of 1600 copies, signed by the artist on the limitation page. The Basil Creighton translation, revised by Joseph Milck and Horst Frenz. Book is fine. Dust jacket toned and lightly chipped along spine, some light chipping at edges. Sold with an additional suite of prints issued by The Print Club of New York in 1979, in a portfolio. (Portfolio and prints measure 18.5" tall, 13" wide.) Reproduces Ackerman's woodcuts in two colors (whereas in the book they were printed in black only), directly from the blocks, on Japanese Hosho handmade paper. In the original suite (limited to 200 portfolios, with 8 woodcuts each), each print was signed by the artist -- these are not. We offer here 4 copies of "The Judge" (listed in the book as "The judge who sits over a murderer.," p. 47), 2 copies of "The Meal" (in the book as "A roast chicken was recommended and soon set before me," p. 131), and 2 copies of "On a rug lay two naked figures," (same title, p. 173 of the book). Created at The Press of A. Colish, Mount Vernon, New York, these are likely extras, as there are no flaws to suggest they were test runs. Folder a little rubbed and soiled, but the prints are nice and clean, suitable for framing. Bookseller Inventory # D1105
