Berlin: Aufbau-Verlag, 1964. SIGNED. Quarto [27.5 cm] Pale gray wraps with a Japanese stab binding. The spine is darkened and has a small moisture stain.

Two of the tears are a bit longer. They are closed and measure roughly 2 inches long. Ritter C a) Nr. 80.I. Very Good. Item #65714

With a laid in facsimile of the manuscript entitled "Größe und Elend," and with a woodcut signed by Masereel with his intitials. This copy is not numbered.

Masereel was known for his pioneering work in wordless novels. Masereel's woodcut series, which were mainly of sociocritical content and of expressionistic formal concept, brought Masereel international acknowledgment. His so-called image novels include 'Passion eines Menschen', 'Mein Stundenbuch', 'Die Sonne', 'Die Idee' and 'Geschichte ohne Worte', which all date from the 1920s. During this same time Masereel also drew illustrations for famous works of world literature by Thomas Mann, Emile Zola and Stefan Zweig.
