Here is a magnificent Art Nouveau children’s book with rich illustrations, published around 1900 by Steinkamp Verlag Duisburg (founded 1851).
The books title is “Bilder aus dem Tierleben”, translating into “Pictures from the Animal Life”. It has a cardboard cover, a linen spine and contains 24 pages, including 12 coloured lithograph pages (not all of them shown in the photographs!). The illustrations are by Karl Schicktanz.
The books contains also rhymes and songs (in German), all having animals as subject, some written by the publisher, some by others.
The 120 years old antique book is in excellent condition considering its age! On the frontispiece somebody signed their name with pencil, and on the very last page one corner is missing, also, the cover corners are not as sharp as they were 120 years before, these are about the only small flaws to be detected!
