Der Sandmann - mit 3 Original-Radierungen von Hugo Steiner-Prag

Leipzig: Bibliographische Institut, 1925. First printing. Paperback. No. 295 of 1200, signed by Steiner-Prag at the colophon. Small 8vo (7.5 x 4.75), stiff black wraps stamped in gilt, about fine copy in marbled paper slipcase. 3 etchings by Steiner-Prag: a vignette on the title page and two full page plates. 97 pp. A handsome book in nice condition. Steiner-Prag was a Prague-born Jew who converted to Catholicism in 1907 but still retained ties to the Jewish community, including supplying 25 lithographs in 1916 for an illustrated edition of Meyrink's "Der Golem." He was relieved of his teaching duties in Leipzig in 1933 because of his Jewish ancestry and first moved back to Czechoslovakia, but in 1938 as tensions were heating up, he immigrated to the United States. Near Fine. Item #H16715
