Munich, 1970. Oblong, 31 x 25 cm, 28 pp.
Beautiful 2-color collotype of the autograph executed by the photolithographic firm E. Schrieber in Stuttgart. This song cycle is associated with Beethoven's realization that he would likely never marry and that his youth had passed. It also marks a significant turning point in the composer's style, becoming more muted with inward expressiveness. Laid paper with coverboards in vegetable vellum, with pasted title etikette. (Rare) $225
