Small square quarto. (52)pp. One of 110 copies, signed by the author/illustrator, Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens. A beautiful German alphabet book, printed entirely by lithography. Each letter is shown both in Fraktur and Roman types, one on each page, and is illustrated with vibrant hand-colored birds whose names begin with the letter. Perched on top of the letter Q is a bright green quetzal with long, dramatic tail feathers, and two parakeets, or Wellensittich, cuddle on top of the letter W. Below each letter is a couplet describing the bird. In addition to being half of the Ernst Ludwig Presse, along with his brother, printer and typographer Christian Heinrich Kleukens, F. W. Kleukens was a distinguished typographer and artist in his own right. Kleukens illustrated many of the Presse's books, as well as a few books for children. Stab-bound in illustrated wrappers, protected with a contemporary plain paper dust wrapper. Some faint foxing to covers and fore-edge, else fine and bright. Bookseller Inventory #
