Volume V of this important series of almanacs in a copy of the ordinary edition, beside which there is a first and final de luxe edition of 100 numbered copies, the prints of which with the addition of a further one (O.

Marchand, Street View
F. Marchand, Street View. Lithograph.

Lithographs printed by Graphische Kunstanstalt Meißner & Buch, Leipsic. – Title & cover design by Hans Möhring ibid. – “… programmatically (the volume) follows again the well-tried model, which puts the dead beside the living – for this latter yet seeks the widest radius which the term of a modern global art allows for” (Biermann). In such a manner each textually concise, but well-documented by illustrations on

Frans Masereel, Woodcut
Frans Masereel, Kneeling Man. Woodcut.

Hodler , Joh. Adam Klein , Prud’hon , Redon , Henri Rousseau , Feininger , Kubin , Klee , Darmstadt Secession , Moholy-Nagy , Heckendorf , Munch , Kandinsky , Corinth , Sintenis , Dix , El Lissitzky , Hofer , Matisse , constructivism , Young Art in the Russian Museums and Collections , Modern Art in the Silesian Museum Breslau , The New Gallery of the 17th to 18th Centuries in the Wallraf-Richartz Museum , Caspar David Friedrich , Daumier , Steinlen , Czech Prints etc. etc.

Crodel, Boy with Fur Cap
Charles Crodel, Boy with Fur Cap. Lithograph.

Read, but utterly decent copy. Especially noted nonetheless: the partially variedly paled and particularly on the back cover a little stained binding as a whole slightly worn. Pp. 19-24 with longer slight box pleat, pp. 30-270 with first increasing, then decreasing dog-ear at the head, isolated (tiny) margin spots. All as rather the rule with not particularly frequent occurrences. Biermann’s Junge Kunst Jahrbücher packed – and still do – a punch after all. And this by no means just for the names remaining established as picked out above.
