Zwei Dramen aus dem Bauernkrieg: Der Arme Konrad. Thomas Muenzer (ex library Lotte Jacobi, with her ownership stamp).

Berlin: Aufbau Verlag, 1959. First printing. Original Wraps, with woodcut illustration in black on orange. 12mo, pp. 220. Frontis b/w image of Wolf and 6 original woodblock prints illustrating the text. Very Good. Item #9143

Rather scarce illustrated edition of Wolf's plays. This copy is especially interesting as it came from the library of Weimar German/American photographer Lotte Jacobi, who photographed Wolf in the 1920s. (We also have inscribed Wolf editions to Jacobi from the twenties.) Two plays that the socialist, revolutionary physician Wolf had written in the Weimar era (1923) and in early post war Germany (1952), which fit the agenda of the German Democratic Republic brand of socialism. The high point of this collection is the wonderfully powerful original woodcuts by Felixmüller.
