Struck Illustrated Book


SKU: Con -1/OstjuedischeAntlitz Categories: , ,

Item Description

Hermann Struck produced 25 portrait etchings to illustrate  Das Ostjuedische Antlitz (“The Face of Eastern European Jews”) by Arnold Zweig. This is the 2nd edition, published 1922 by Welt-Verlag in Berlin. The Struck portraits, some of which are on this site as separate hand signed sheets, are marvelous. But the book is in fragile condition because of poor paper quality; some of the pages are tearing off (with none missing.) and all are deeply time stained. The volume is still tightly bound; the cloth cover is bleached on the spine and top front and back with minor scrapes and corner bumps.(books)
