Basel / Stuttgart: Basilius Presse, 1962. First edition. Twenty-fourmo [12 cm] Accordion-folding artist's book composed of purple paper over boards with folding black and white lithographic interior.

The title of the folding title page reads: "Die vier temperamente: Sanguiniker; Choleriker; Phlegmatiker; Melancholiker oder Party bei." Publisher's notes tucked in. Near fine. Item #63592

One of Lavater's earlier tales. An original story, and not a retelling of a traditional story, told in black and white.
