VON GOETHE, JOHANN WOLFGANG. Reynard the Fox, London and New York: Trubner and Theo. Stroeffer, 1870. Folio, English-language edition of the 1846 German edition, pp. 236, but 2 copies of pp. 105-6 and 111-12 bound in, while 107-110 are lacking, 36 engraved plates after Wilhelm Von Kaulbach, plus engraved second title page, red morocco boards with gilt lettering to spine and front, elaborate gilt decoration, all edges gilt, gift inscription inked onto a preliminary page. Engraved headpieces and tailpieces. The Kaulbach illustrations are indescribably raunchy and depraved, with much of the bad behavior taking place in the animal kingdom. Condition of this book: Binding weak with hinges cracked, backstrip torn, extremities rubbed. Gilt at edges is flaking. Internal foxing (no pun intended), most pages have a dampstain in the fore margin, not affecting the content. Images very good to fine.
