About this Item

With wood-engraved colored illustrations and text. Includes the extra leaf for the 100th edition of Wie der Struwwelpeter reprinted from Gartenlaube, 1871, No. 46, with a portrait of Hoffmann. Original decorated wood engraved boards listing all the individual episodes on the front cover and publisher's advertisements on the back cover. The 100th edition was published as a jubilee edition, and all subsequent editions contain the additional leaf at the beginning. This is the famous group of stories of children who are not good, do not listen to their parents, and therefore suffer the results, often drastic consequences, of their cruel mischief. One story tells of a child who tortures animals receiving a deep bite, another receives burns when playing with matches, another is carried off in the wind while playing with an umbrella, never to return. There are children who cut off a thumb from playing with scissors and another who refuses to eat his soup and starves to death.Each of these stories has been related to psychiatric conditions. Each story has its symbols for a variety of mental problems such as ADHD or hyperactivity syndrome. The boy who refuses to eat has been described as suffering from anorexia nervosa. Hoffmann was a Frankfurt doctor and psychiatrist. This book is one of the most successful German children's books and has been translated into numerous languages. Bookseller Inventory # 15103
