‘Der Junge Laubfäge-Arbeiter. Musterbuch für kunftarbeiten in Holz für die reifere Jugend’

(Mit 20 Borlageblättern, entworfen von G. Schöpß, und zahlreichen text-abbildungen.)

The ‘Mufterbuch für kunftarbeiten’ -popular among collectors- is rarely offered for sale. It is almost exclusively in the possession of private individuals. (A first edition isn’t offered anywhere, worldwide.) Even more exceptional, the book is complete - all additional 20 template sheets are included. The sheets are designed by G. Schöpß.

Also the book book has numerous, beautiful, illustrations decorating the pages. (Book and templates are in a slipcase.)

(According to *KVK, this book can not be found in any German library. (Worldwide, only the Princeton University library owns a copy; also second edition Remarkable, they own an incomplete copy; 18 instead of the 20 template sheets.)

(A meta-search engine for library and book trade catalogs worldwide.)

Please view the photo’s, as they are part of the description. Overall, the slipcase, text booklet and slipcase are in ‘fair/good’ state. The front page of the text book is loosened. As can be seen on the photos’s it needs to be ‘sown! back in. (The book is in the original state; no repairs. The new owner has the choice to leave it as is, or redo the sowing/binding.) There are also 2 minute tears in the front page, and a small tear in template sheet number 9. Finally, there are normal marks of ‘aging’, nothing particular specific, worth mentioning.
