First edition of this legendary work by Hansi, published in 1919 in the euphoria of victory.
Copy preserved in its superb polychrome publisher’s paperboard binding, signed Engel, the two covers are embellished with compositions by Hansi.
Printed on satin paper, after the 100 copies on Hollande paper.
Work superbly illustrated with 60 colour compositions by Hansi, in text and on full page and 2 on double page.
Very beautiful hardcover binding, in excellent condition in terms of freshness, very light rubbing on the headcap and small traces of foxing on the front cover (hardly visible). Impeccable interior, sound hinge. In very good condition.
Hansi: " I knew that a day would come when joy and happiness would once again reign in a free Alsace, I also knew that we would have to suffer again, but I never thought that the joy and happiness could be so great, nor the hardships we would have to go through, so painful."
