Busch Bilderbogen, by Wilhelm Busch. Koloriert.
Munich, Verlag Braun & Schneider.
25 double-page hand colored comic plates by one of the great innovators of cartooning. As often seen, a random assortment of plates with non-sequential numbers at top right corner. It appears the publisher would simply take a variety and include them.
Binding loose, age spotted, first few plates loose as a block from original fragile weak paper binding (plates were likely intended to be removed and hung).
Book measures: 13 1/2" H X 9" W.
