Lot 3

Pest: Hermann Geibel, 1859. First German edition. Publisher's three-quarters leather, cloth sides with stamped gilt design of a tiger hunt on the upper cover, coated moire endpapers. 23 1/2 x 17 inches (59.5 x 43.5 cm); [6], 106, [2] pp., with 16 hand-colored lithographs printed by Engelmann after Andrásy, as well as fine wood engraved vignettes and initials. Head of spine chipped, some rubbing and wear to binding, but overall sound. Internally generally clean, though the plates with some foxing (plate six with a pale marginal stain largely clear of the plate). With the bookplate of the Explorers Club, an inked shelf number at the foot of the contents leaf, also Geibel's large engraved bookseller's label on the pastedown, and the bookplate (with shelf mark) of L.V. Ledeboer of Rotterdam.
A rather rare work with fine plates, including one of Hong Kong. Count Andrásy was Hungarian, exiled from Budapest by the Austrian invasion, and a renowned hunter.
