[Linde-Walther, Heinrich Eduard] Vom Dicken Fetten Pfannekuchen ("The Big Fat Pancake")

Hanover: A. Molling, (1920).

First and Only Editiion. 4to. Original color pictorial paper covered boards with superb color illustrated covers and twelve pages of color chromolithographic illustrations (full color title, two whole page, and 9 half-page) by Linde-Walther depicting wonderfully expressive scenes of the pancake in wild scenes, starting with him in the pan! 32.5x23.5cm. Color illustrated covers front and back. A superb and witty rendering of this anthropomorphic tale by the illustrator Heinrich-Eduard Linde-Walther (1868-1939). The illustrations by Linde-Walther tell a humorous tale of a "Pannekokens" who begins chattering in Low German, jumps out of the pan with "three old women," and "kanntapper" escapes into the forest, where a rabbit, wolf, goat, horse and wild boar all run after him one after the other. Finally, the unfortuante "pancake" ends up in the mouths of three starving orphans. A second children's book with Linde-Walther's illustrations entitled Dideldumdei was published there in 1921. Slightly evenly browned due to the paper, isolated minimal blemishes on the crease. Very good and well-preserved copy a scarce and desirable children's book.

Linde-Walther (1868-1939)) was a noted German painter and illustrator who attended the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, from 1891 to 1894, and later the AcadÈmie Julian in Paris. Linde-Walther became a member of the Berlin Secession in 1902, continuing to travel and exhibit widely and was especially noted for his work on this children's storybook published by A. Molling & Comp.
