Munich, Germany: Franz Hanfstaengl, 1921. Dies ist nicht eine zweisprachige Ausgabe. Text in Deutsch, nicht in Englisch. Erste Ausgabe somit. 4 Bl. und 20 Doppelblatt mit je 1 ganzseitigen Orig.Radierung von Erich Erler. 30 x 19,5 cm. Unbeschnittene Doppelbogen in pergament-Mappe. München, Franz Hanfstaengl, 1921. Eines von 100 numer. Exemplaren auf Kupferdruck-Bütten mit der signierten Frontispiz-Radierung. Gesamtauflage: 110 Exemplare. Das Buch sollte ursprünglich als illustriertes Buch mit dem Gesamttext erscheinen. Wegen der Inflation wurde jedoch nur ein Mappenwerk mit den Radierungen herausgebracht, denen jeweils die entsprechende Textseite zur Illustration gegenübergestellt ist. Gutes Exemplar. This is not a bilingual edition. Text in German only, not in English. First edition thus. Complete in one paperback volume of loose sheets with plates, as issued, all in chemise, and in turn in portfolio. No. 49 0f 100 copies on kupferdruck bütten papier (handmade rotogravure paper). There were also 10 copies on Japan paper. Text printed by Knorr & Hirth, plates printed by Franz Hanfstaengl. Page size 11.5 x 7.5 inches. (Thus each sheet, as opened, is 11.5 x 15 inches.) Title page and first few text pages with moderate age-yellowing and/or spotting. With 20 plates, as called for, each about 7.25 x 5.25 inches. The first plate is numbered and apparently signed in pencil by the artist, but not so guaranteed. The first plate with light to moderate foxing along the right edge of the page as well as along the right margin of the impression. All other plates exceptionally clean and almost entirely free of foxing or with lightest spotting. All sheets are slipped in to a plain beige paper chemise with black-stamped lettering and design to the front. The portfolio with ivory-colored vellum [or vellum-like] spine and corners, and with beige paper hardboards. Front board with gilt-stamped lettering and design. Faint, round ink stamp to the front pastedown [from publisher or bookseller?]. This item overall Good Plus. Scarce in any condition. The publisher originally intended to print the entire text of the book but for cost-containment reasons decided instead to print excerpts from the text, one excerpt corresponding to each of 19 plates. All etchings by Erich Erler [1870-1946], a German painter and etcher of the Munich School and a staff member at the weekly magazine Die Jugend.. First Edition Thus. Unbound. Good Plus. Illus. by Erler, Erich. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
