Insel-Bucherei Nr 198 Johannes Von Tepl Der Udermann und der Tod Nachwort von Reinhold Schneider
Printed in Leipzig by Insel Verlag under their Insel Bucherei (Island Library) imprint in the early part of the 20th century, this series of books went on to inspire the well-known and highly collectible series of similarly designed King Penguin book series. Insel Verlag began by exclusively printing exquisitely crafted high-cost books. However, with the start of the Insel Bucherei series in 1912, they recognized the need to produce affordable and attractive editions designed to appeal to customers with more modest financial means.
Book lovers still rejoice over these attractive volumes, which focused on shorter works by well-known authors. Subject matter ranges from fiction, to poetry, to art, to scholarly and philosophical texts. Some have quite lovely illustrations, and many are graced with the heavy script of old-fashioned German text.
The Insel-Bücherei is a book series that has existed since 1912 from the Leipzig, then also Wiesbaden / Frankfurt and now Berliner Insel Verlag. In the series small works of lyricism, prose and essay writing of classical authors and contemporary publishing authors were edited. Later, artistic and natural representations, texts from the world of fairy tales and legends, as well as royalties from authors of other publishers were added. Typography and furnishing of the cardboard volumes should always meet high demands for bookings at a moderate sales price. The series, which was largely unified by its colored sample papers and its title and backplate, survived all its economic and political dangers, especially in the result of the two world wars of the twentieth century, as well as inflation , the national socialist dictatorship, and the German division until the autumn of 2017 volumes were published up to the number 1443.
