/Tenggren, illustrator.

Grimms Marchenschatz.

Berlin: Grunewald, Verlagsanstalt Hermann Klemm, [1923]; printed in Leipzig, plates printed in Munich no date, with 32 tipped in plates, as issued, by Tenggren. 7.5x10"/19x25.5 cm; 179 pp. German language hardback juvenile.

Simply beautiful princesses and terrifying Northern creatures with an ambiance somewhat between the fairy tales of John Bauer and Rackham. We can see the foreshadows of Tenggren's later American work, but at first glance the two styles are very different.

CONDITION: Good Plus; no names or other marks, binding tight with front hinge paper cracked, spine and endpapers darkened, front bent and returned, leaving 3" scuffed crack across the lower corner. The plates are all there and in beautiful condition. Item #19655
