Notes:

by SHIGITATSU.COM (WorldCat user on 2007-12-22)

This is an unusual and rare book. It is a book of German poetry written in German with gothic lettering. This wonderful book has 36 hand colored (coloured) plates. Each plate is followed by a poem. These plates are stunning! The plates are originally done by Grandville in Les Fleurs Animées. The flowers are labeled in German. Measures 9 ¼" x 6 ¼" x 1 ¼" A beautiful example of the rare German edition of Grandville's "Les fleurs animées". The wonderful plates were reengraved for this edition in a slightly smaller format, and with fine hand colouring. Gordon Ray , Art of the French Illustrated Book, p. 198: "A little world is created, governed by its own laws. His first biographer wrote: "The Fleurs Animées are the very thought of Grandville; they were his favourite work, the work into the execution of which he put all that was in him of poetic and gracious originality, of dexterity of mind and observation, of that prodigious perspicacity which made divine affinities hitherto unperceived by anyone and discover new worlds."
