by Spörri-Dolder, Hedwig
Zürich: Verlag der Wolfsbergdrucke, 1947. First edition. Hardcover. Paper pastedown. Cloth spine. . Very Good. Oblong, 22.5 by 30.5 cm. Unpaginated, 16 leaves, including title, with colorful illustrations of gnomes, juvenile gnomes, and their friends in the animal kingdom -- robins, mice, rabbits, etc. The point of this particular book is to allow the child to devise his own yarn based on the vivid illustrations, and so the fact that the title is in Swiss German dialect matters not in the least. The illustrations are delightful -- one's first thought might be one should be finding them cheesy and kitschy, but then one is bound to succumb to their charm. Children, of course, will have no scruples in falling hard for the lively depiction of blissful nature. Ex-lib, with a few comparatively inconspicuous markings (blind stamps, a few small printed numbers, and the library name printed on fore-edge). Otherwise, a bright, clean copy.
