"Hellmuth probably engraved these two sets of images sometime in the 1940s. He had left Germany in 1939, and there are echoes of his homeland in both sets of engravings, perhaps a nostalgia for the countryside he had left behind" (J[ohn] R[andle], 1, p. ). In the first collection, each seasonally themed illustration is captioned simply with its appropriate month, printed in red; in the second, each illustration is faced by lines from "The Soldier" by Rupert Brooke, printed in green. 250 copies of the set were printed in Goudy Modern on Rosa paper, then bound in Canson Ingres by The Fine Bindery. Publisher's printed paper wrappers, in maroon paper slipcase. Crisp and clean, virtually => pristine. (Inventory #: 37167)
