Appelschnut: Neues und Altes von ihren Taten, Abenteuern und Meinungen

by ERNST, Otto

Condition: See description

Leipzig: Verlag von L. Staackman, 1906. Hardcover. 12mo. Tan paper over boards with black, red, green and yellow pictorial stamping. 179pp, (1p ad). Very good. Binding a bit edgeworn and age toned, but internally tight and nice. Early printing (11th through 15th thousand) of the most popular juvenile tale by this German writer and poet (1862-1926), first published in 1905. Entirely in German. Charming front board graphic shows a young girl stretching up to pluck apples off a tiny tree as her dog watches. "Appelschnut" is perhaps idiomatic, as it evades translation (perhaps "Apple Picking" given the front cover graphic?), though subtitle translates "Your New and Old Actions, Adventures and Opinions.
