About this Item

Small 4to. Brown cloth spine and pictorial paper over boards. 27pp. 4 full-page chromolithographs, line drawings. Very good. Mild edgewear. Tight, clean and handsome undated fifth printing (ca. 1900) of this gathering of sentimental artwork accompanied by "old, beloved rhymes" ("Mit alten, lieben Reimen von Julius Lohmeyer und Fr. Oldenberg"), entirely in German. German painter Pletsch (1830-88) was one of the most popular and influential children's book illustrators of the 19th century, a master of sentimental scenes of everyday small town life. Title translation: "The Old Acquaintances: Original Sketches." A lovely copy with bold and bright color plates, identified as No. 439 of this F. Loewes Verlag publication. A pencilled ownership signature on front flyleaf is dated 1908, confirming a turn-of-the-century publication date. Bookseller Inventory # 40368
