Mutter und Kind. Wie man heikle Gegenstände mit Kindern behandeln kann. Nellie schrieb’s holländisch, J. Grimm hat es verdeutscht.(“Mother and Child. How to handle delicate objects with children. Nellie wrote it in Dutch, J. Grimm has translated it to German.”)

The title page is set in Genzsch & Heyse’s Alte Fraktur, which from 1913 on was marketed as Leibniz-Fraktur. Note the umlauts with superscript e. The typography is framed by Jugendstil vignettes.

Published by Alfred Töpelmann (previously known as J. Rickers Verlag) in c. 1904. This printing is from 1910. With a foreword by Georg Sticker.
