They have a particular warmth to them that I don’t usually see in other illustrations. I would really like to get a copy of the book from which you got the images from… would it be possible to get the ISBN or the name?

Thanks for posting all of these artists work. I’ve grown to cherish more and more the opportunity to receive the new post notifications. The leg work that you’ve done for the artist selection is really appreciated. Time flies so fast and there is so much good good work out there, the hard part is taking the time to dig it out. Thanks again.

that is the nicest comment I got for a while, cesare. thank you for that. to tell you the truth, I just ordered about 40 books around christmas last year, 20 are still in the mail on the way from germany over here to the philippines. you are right, it takes time and even money to dig out the treasures around. if you saw all the books, I have so far, illustrated by wilhelm m. busch, you would probably go nuts like I did. anyway – go to this address of an antique bookseller organisation –
just type in the name WILHELM M.BUSCH and it will give you the used older books available. the prices are affordable. if you wanna
have that particular title, just search for MANON LESCAUT. in case you need help, because itv is all in german, send me an e-mail and I will do what I can –
good luck – my best – hans
