Backe Backe Kuchen. Alte Reime mit neuen Bildern

Condition: See description

N.p.: N.p., n.y.. Paperback. Illustrations by Wilhelm Schäfer. Small 4to. Stiff pictorial wrappers. (14pp). Numerous color illustrations. Very good. Binding a bit edgeworn and faintly scuffed. Bibliographically-challenged German-language edition of this old children's rhyme, whose title translates "Bake, Bake a Cake: Old Rhymes with New Pictures." Likely published in Germany around the turn-of-the-century, to which a pencilled ownership signature dated 1903 on front flyleaf lends credence. Apparently published without title page, though the publisher identifies this title as "No. 839" on the front wrapper. It also follows the quirky binding pattern of the first three text pages running on the left-hand side, followed by a charming centerfold (pp. 7-8) and the final three text pages running on the right-hand side. Numerous small illustrations throughout are bright and quaint.
