    The Rare German-Language Tie-In Edition in Wrappers

    Thea von Harbou. Metropolis. Berlin: August Scherl, [1926].

    German-language movie tie-in edition issued to coincide with the film's German release. Twelvemo. [1] - [194] pages plus two-page advertisement. With four double-sided sepia-toned plates depicting eight scenes from the film.

    Original pictorial wrappers featuring a color painting of the robot Brigette Helm on the front cover. Moderate wear to the corners and extremities of the wrappers, with minor separation of the spine folds at the extremities, about one-inch at each end. Minimal cocking to the spine. Foxing to the rear cover and textblock edges. Previous owner's signature on the half-title page. Front cover and internal contents clean. Overall, a very good copy of a rare title.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
