    One of the Best Collections of Expressionist Artwork with Original Lithographs

    Kurt Pfister. Deutsche Graphiker der Gegenwart. Leipzig: Klinkhardt & Biermann, 1920. First edition. Folio. [44] pages. With twenty-three original prints in lithograph or woodcut, and with eight reproductions inserted, complete as issued. Publisher's beige cloth backstrip over boards, front board printed in blue, spine lettered in blue. Binding worn, spine chipped and torn, front board chipped and worn, with tape residue over printed title (with some loss of text), rear board soiled, chipped and creased, gift inscription in German on front free endpaper. Minor thumbsoiling in text, plates a bit toned, but clean. Overall, a good copy. It is rare to find a complete copy as most copies were dismembered in order to sell the plates individually.
