Friedrich Johann Bertuch (1747-1822) was the German publisher and entrepenuer credited with the publication of the Bilderbuch fur Kinder, or the Picture Book for Children. It was a comprehensive and encyclopedic series intended to provide children with a view into the larger world and indeed it succeeded admirably, giving children a taste of all sorts of subjects: natural history, science, anthropology, mythology and much more. The work was created in Bertuch’s own publishing house, was his largest work and was very well done, with illustrations by J. Schmuzer. The series, which was distributed in monthly installments, numbered twelve volumes containing 1255 hand-colored copperplate engravings,.

4to.., 7 5/8” x 9 7/8” overall measurement, hand-colored copper-plate engraving, right edge slightly uneven from disbinding, edges slightly sunned, light paper toning, very faint text offsetting otherwise excellent condition, Weimar, 1798. *Please Note* This image is digitally watermarked, but the electronic watermark does not appear on the actual print.
