[Raspe, Rudolf Erich], Gustave DorĂ©, illus.  The adventures of Baron Munchausen. Cleveland, OH: The World Publishing Co., n.d. [ca. 1950]. 8vo (20.8 cm, 8.125"). 206 pp.; 20 plts. (incl. in pagination), illus.
$15.00

Baron Munchausen goes on a series of unimaginable adventures and survives to recount them all with an air of indifference. He attacks two bears, saves a woman's life, wins in a battle against a pride of lions, and becomes a prisoner of war, but that's just the beginning for the Baron!
        There are 20 full-page illustrations (including the frontispiece) and many smaller in-text illustrations by French artist Gustave DorĂ©. The Frenchman's work bring to life some of the Baron's most well known and humorous experiences, such as riding a half-horse and flying on an eagle.

Quarter blue cloth with cream cloth sides, red label and gilt decoration to spine, gilt lettering and red-stamped decoration to front board; corners bumped, bumping to spine, speckling to cloth, faint water-staining to joints causing mild bleeding, spine faded. Interior lightly age-toned, some rubbing to front free endpaper. A good copy with oh-so many fun illustrations!  (39500)   Please RESHELVE This.
