Cleaning has removed some of the affected areas. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; Large collection of black and white paintings by Chinese Old Masters. All text is in Chinese, so I cannot be very specific. Nice collection of facsimiles of Chinese art. Some earlier and much smaller softcover volumes of these works seem to have been done in the 1950's. This hardcover volume may be a collection of the earlier works.

Die Pilgerfahrt Der Blumengeister, Bottger, Adolf
15 Bottger, Adolf Die Pilgerfahrt Der Blumengeister
Leipzig Friedrich Fleischer 1857 Later Edition Hardcover Very Good Illustrated by J. J. Grandville 
This book has the original decorated leather covers with a new spine in matching leather. The old leather has some scuffed areas and light wear. The gilt, blindstamped designs are still quite attractive -- please look at scans. The hinges have been stregthened as well. The interior has the usual toning and some foxing. Still a square, well-bound copy of the intriguing work. ; 36 Colored Engravings; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 296 pages; This book is in German. My translation of this title is The Pilgrimage of the Flower Spirits. I assume that the poetry in the volume involves some story about the anthropomorphized flowers that are presented in the illustrations. The beautiful illustrations are 36 colored engravings, taken from J. J. Grandville's 1847 work, Les Fleures Animees. In these works, Grandville attempted to give flowers the characteristics associated with their names. Grandville's original illustrations were hand-colored. I am unsure whether the illustrations in this book are hand-colored or not.

The source of the title is revealed in the 365th letter. Colbert's photographs and one-hour film loosely reference the traveller's encounters and experiences described in the letters." Beautiful, small work of art reflecting, man's interaction with animals; this volume features elephants.
