8vo. 21 by 17 cm. Unpaginated, 30 leaves, with twelve silhouette drawings, four of which have some slightly crudely added color to the precise black ink, and facing each sihouette is orginal verse handwritten in Sütterlin Schrift, which makes it difficult for us to read fully although it is done with a highly regular, neat hand. But even excluding the poetry, the sihouettes are very appealing and we assume are original, although we can't prove that they aren't copied from something else. These drawings appear to tell the story of one child, Hans. We first see him in a typical day. We see his house, his watching other children frolicking, his being instructed by his mother, his kneeling in prayer, an angel descending to him while he sleeps. Is he praying for a baby sister? Next an infant is born, and the mother is nursing the baby as in another illustration, the father is counseling his son about the newborn. In the final illustration the boy is playing with his younger sister. Light soiling to the wraps.
