19th Century German Children’s Book Illustrations

A selection of magnifincent illustrations, featuring animals in human guises and activities, from DER GESANGVEREIN BRULLARIA UND SEIN STIFTUNGFEST, Ackermann, Munich, 1893. Illustrations by Ludwig Bechstein. And from KONIG NOBEL, EIN HEITERES BILDERBUCH, Wiskott, Breslau, no date (c 1880). Illustrations by Fedor Flinzer. Two books which exemplify both the hight quality of German children’s books and the bizarre nature of some of their illustrations. (For an English equivalent, see LVA 1010)
