Sneewittchen [Snow White]. Das deutsche Bilderbuch, Serie A: Marchen, No. 6.
Mainz; verlag von Jos. Scholz. [1905]. Landscape imperial 8vo., (297 x 228mm), original mid green cloth-backed cream decorative glazed boards, stapled to spine and blocked in Art Nouveau style in lime green, dark green, black, blue, and tan to both boards, rounded corners (as issued), with Art Nouveau pastedowns; pp. [16]; with fine pictorial title-page in colours, decorative publisher's advertisement to rear, text and vignettes throughout in sepia, and a total of 8 fine chromolithographed plates in intense colours with outlines in black; a lovely copy of a scarce and fragile book, externally uncommonly good with only light dust-soiling and marking to boards, internally a touch shaken, although sound on staples, and clean throughout, with the usual toning to stock. First edition illustrated thus, published in Scholz's famous picture book series of fairy tales. Reprints of this work are more frequently found but the first in these distinctive Art Nouveau boards is elusive. The illustrator Franz Juttner (1865-1925) was a German artist, illustrator, and caricaturist who lived in both Berlin and Wolfenb├╝ttel.
