5 proof sheets from the first edition of German popular stories

"German Popular Stories also put before the public the remarkable illustrations - perhaps his best work - of George Cruikshank. The Illustrations evoke wonderfully the grotesque, awesome, yet matter-of-fact qualities of with and goblin, of Frog Prince, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, and all the other characters that people the tales. As illustrations to these fairy tales Cruikshank's etching have never been surpassed (Morgan Library, Early Children's Books)"
