Aus den Memoiren de Herr von Schnabelewopsky

Pascin, Jules (Julius Pincas). Heine, Henri

Berlin. Verlag bei Paul Cassirer / PAN-PRESSE. 1910
The édition de tête of Pascin's first illustrated book with an original drawing.

From the edition limited to 310 copies, with this one of 60 from the édition de tête on Kaiserliches Japan, signed by Pascin pencil to the justification; Pascin has signed 9 of the lithographs in pencil and 6 feature additional colouring by hand.

The original drawing by Pascin, on a sheet of smooth laid paper without watermark (196 x 196 mm), is for the second illustration in the book, that on page 10. The drawing, as per the illustration, within a drawn frame is slightly larger than the lithograph version (the drawn frame is 178 x 178 mm while the printed version is 146 x 146 mm) and, in addition, also features (at upper right) a tiny remarque in watercolour: the head of a mouse peeking out of a hole to observe the events of the drawing.

'Pascin's first book illustrations. The deceptive simplicity of his drawing, recalling German illustration of a hundred years earlier, gives the plates a mock innocence.' (The Artist and the Book).
