   Sulamith / Wülfing / Band VII / Zwölf Kupfertiefdrucktafeln
"Der Truhe" by Otto Schulze - Ostern [Easter] 1935

Twelve black and white plates with tissue guards:

  1. Von Rumpelstilzchen [From Rumpelstiltskin]
  2. Der Drachenritt [The Ride on a Dragon]
  3. Die Schlafende Prinzessin [The Sleeping Princess]
  4. Das Riesenspielzeug [The Giant's Plaything]
  5. Der Gläserne Sarg [The Glass Casket]
  6. Vom Merienkind [From Mary's Child]
  7. Jorinde und Joringel [Jorinde and Joringel]
  8. Das Tränenkruglein [The Tear Jug]
  9. Die Trollhexe [The Troll Witch]
  10. Der Verlorene Schuh [The Lost Shoe]
  11. Der Spiegel [The Looking Glass]
  12. Der Fundevogel [The Wonder Bird]

The cover lists the plates as "Kupfertiefdrucktafeln" which translates as "Photogravure boards," but they are actually just high-quality half-tone reproductions, not true photogravure.
The English translations of plate titles were with the book when I bought it, so I take no credit or blame for the translations.

List in rear goes to Band VII (this book) and Kartenserie IV
