About this Item

Small quarto. xxiv, 34pp. One of 150 copies. Signed by the illustrator, Fritz Kredel, and the calligrapher, George Salter, on the colophon. Illustrated with twenty-four hand-colored botanical wood engravings by Kredel, surrounded by verses calligraphed by Salter in German from folk songs and classic poets, including Goethe and Villon. The illustrations depict "Blossoms and leaves, both fresh and wilted, roots, bark and living creatures found on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean," as stated on the title page, and are fresh and vibrant. Following the illustrations is a section with the verses alone, set in type. Fine in vellum-backed dark green cloth, gilt-lettered to spine. Housed in a green paper-covered slipcase, which shows some slight wear to the corners and spine ends. Bookseller Inventory # 26621
