Illustrations for Chamisso's Peter Schlemihl

Cruikshank, George

(London). 1823 / 1824
The very rare separate printing of Cruikshank's etchings on India paper.

This issue is not mentioned by Cohn in his bibliography, nor was an example present in the catalogue of the sale of his collection at Sotheby's in 1920. We can trace no other examples of this issue.

'Many consider these as Cruikshank's best.' (Taken from loosely inserted description).

[Cohn 475].
4to. (c.300 x 220 mm). Eight etchings by George Cruikshank, on India paper and mounted to larger sheets. (India sheet size: c.194 x 112 mm). Each plate mounted under passepartout.
