A gorgeous edition of Ovid's Art of Love and Remedy of Love (in German translation), illustrated with TEN ORIGINAL FULL-PAGE HORS-TEXTE LITHOGRAPHS and five vignettes BY HANS GÖTT. 2300 copies were printed: 2000 copies for the trade edition, and 300 numbered copies, printed by hand, for the deluxe edition.
