Auf dem Wege nach Golgatha.

N.p. N.p., n.y. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Glossy pictorial paper over boards with green cloth spine. (24pp). 6 full-page chromolithographs. Very good. Faintest of binding edgewear, else internally near fine. Item #40491

Cover title translates "On the Way to Calgary" (Golgatha being another name for the site outside Jerusalem's walls where Jesus was crucified), this cryptic but handsome slim title appears to have been published without title page, and consists of several brief Biblical lessons about the crucifixion. Lower left corner of front board notes "No. 1925," as if one in a lengthy series of Biblical lessons. Entirely in German and seemingly of turn-of-the-century (1900) vintage. Likely published by the New York branch of the German publisher Kunstdruck und Verlag von Ernst Kaufmann. Quite handsome and charming, in any case.
