About this Item

Mit 37 farbigen Zeichnungen von Karl Stirner. 85, [3] pages. Illustrations in color. The cover has some wear and soiling. Some page foxing but none noted on the color illustrations. The structure of the fairy tale is multi-layered. There is a framework, the story of the couple Seppe and Vrone, the experiences of the two being independent of each other over long distances, only at the very end are the two parts brought together. Added to this is a more extensive internal tale of the fair Lau and two short stories dealing with the alchemist Weyland. Eduard Friedrich Mörike (8 September 1804 - 4 June 1875) was a German Romantic poet and writer of novellas and novels. Mörike was a member of the so-called Swabian school of writers around Ludwig Uhland. His poems (Gedichte, 1838), are mostly lyrical, yet often humorous and written in simple and seemingly everyday German. His ballad "Schön Rotraut" - opening with the line "Wie heisst König Ringangs Töchterlein?" - became a popular favorite.His first published work was the novel Maler Nolten ("The painter Nolten", 1832), a Bildungsroman and fantastic tale about the life of a painter, and which revealed his imaginative power; it became fairly popular. The novella Mozart auf der Reise nach Prag ("Mozart on the way to Prague", 1856) was a humorous examination of the problems of artists in a world uncongenial to art. It is frequently cited as his finest achievement. He also wrote a somewhat fantastic Idylle vom Bodensee, oder Fischer Martin und die Glockendiebe (1846), the fairy tale Das Stuttgarter Hutzelmännlein (1855), and published a collection of hymns, odes, elegies, and idylls of the Greeks and Romans, entitled Klassische Blumenlese (1840). He also translated Anacreon and Theocritus into German.Karl Stirner (November 14, 1923 - February 18, 2016) was a German-born American sculptor.He was born in Bad Wildbad. His longtime hometown of Easton, Pennsylvania honored the artist by naming the "Karl Stirner Arts trail" with which he was actively involved after him. As an art professor he taught at Swathmore college and the Tyler School of Art.Stirner's work was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, the James A. Michener Art Museum, among others places.Stirner died February 18, 2016, aged 92. Presumed first edition as illustrated thus. Bookseller Inventory # 72277
