About This Item

Amsterdam: De Spieghel, 1927. Folio, [48] pages, twenty one hand-colored plates, All the plates are on a sturdy, thick card stock (29 x 21cm). First edition, signed and limited. Roman numeral III of a limitation of seven copies in portfolio form, signed by Bodenheim. With an additional inscription dated 1941, signed by Bodenheim and Ansingh. There was also an edition of 100 copies, in book form, bound in a Japanese style and printed on Japon Van Gelder. Rhymes by Lizzy Ansingh, with drawings by Nelly Bodenheim of anthropomorphic fruits, nuts and vegetables, including lemons, grapes, pears, radishes, red pepper, almonds, blackberries, apricots, cherries and leeks. The vignette on the folio and many of the plates appear not printed at all but rather were entirely done by hand. The illustrations are rich in color and originality, with a naive style and an accessible, wry humor. Bodenheim was a popular book illustrator in the Netherlands in the early twentieth century and she and Ansingh teamed up on numerous projects. Plates well preserved and clean. The folio ledger has light soiling on its boards and wear along its joints and flaps' cloth edges. Very good. Rare. [OCLC locates four copies of the work in book form, none of this more limited issue; Cotsen 488 (of the issue in book form)].
