PASSAUER, L.V., - Die Gold'ne Chronik Von Rakoczy.

0. La Grande Histoire du Rakoczy. The Golden Chronicle of Rakoczy.[Munich, c. 1843]; oblong album format: 18 x 24 cm.; lithographed pictorial title-page, 10 humorous lithographic plates [one folding] by Herwegen after Passauer, with unnumbered text-pages; original illustrated cloth-backed boards with two further illustrations; boards a little dusty, with two or three brown ink-stains, a little very, very light marginal browning or spotting. First edition. A very well preserved ephemeral souvenir of the water-cure at Bad Kissingen, offering serious information in palatable form. The drawings, mostly quite busy caricature scenes, are both satirical and affectionate. Thieme-Becker knows no more about Passauer than that he was "Genremaler und Radierer, um 1842", while the life and work of the Cologne-born lithographer, Peter Herwegen [1814-1893], who settled in Munich in 1837, are documented in detail, although the present work is not mentioned.
