Tight and quite handsome copy, entirely in German, of this undated (late 19th century) children's picture book and verse collection whose title translates: "Joy of Youth. A Picture Book with Verses for the Little Dears." The chromolithographs throughout are charming, bold and bright, and depict a wide array of childish activities, each accompanied by a verse. The front board graphic is wonderfully bright and fresh. (Front cover title: Jugend-Lust. Ein neues Bilderbuch.") Bibliographically cryptic, but definitely delightful.
