Die Geschichte vom Rotkäppchen. [The Story of Little Red Riding Hood].
In Versen und Bildern von Walter May. Im Albert Müller-Verlag. Zürich. . In-8 (23,5 x 19,5 cm). (10) ff. : orange cloth spine, identically illustrated lithographed boards, a young girl in red sitting at the foot of a fir tree.
Unique edition. Rare Little Red Riding Hood entirely linocut, text and images colored, and reproduced in lithography, similar to stencils.
Title page and nine plates, with elegant naive simplicity, in primary colors. Only printed in recto, very attractive interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood with a text revisited by the artist in a very playful way. The hunter kills the wolf "Piff! Paff!", the grandmother and Little Red Riding Hood come out intact. They celebrate all three, around the table with a good cake and wine, the death of the villain and the hunter makes himself a hat with the skin of the beast.
Small ring on the upper inner corner of the second plate.
