Leipzig: Theodor Weicher, 1901. Chodowiecki, Daniel. Hardcover. 30 pages in text. 27 x 20 cm. Twenty-eight pages of plates, usually four images per plate. Text in French. As illustrator Chodowiecki could not keep us with the demand for his work from booksellers and engravers. "He represents the feelings and affections, virtues and vices, just as he observed them around him, with singular acuteness. Not unfitly has he been spoken of a the great depictor of the morals of his day." [see: BRYAN Vol. p.291]. A host of his drawings are presented here. Light cover soiling, backstrip nicked at extremities. Orig. illustrated tan cloth. Very good. Item #16329
