~ [Album zu den Memoiren des Jacob Casanova von Seingalt Leipzig: Hartmann, 1872].

Oblong 4to (160 × 220 mm), 30 lithographed plates, interleaved with blanks. Some browning and occasional spotting (mainly towards front and rear). Bound without the printed title wrapper (giving the title and imprint) in early twentieth-century green cloth, red morocco spine label lettered ‘Casanova’. Purple collector’s inkstamp (Charles S. Dixwell) to front pastedown.

A rare suite of plates depicting the amorous exploits of Casanova, giving them a notably Germanic flavour: fleshy if not very explicit. Each plate is captioned (’Casanova und Bettina’, ‘Casanova und Lucia’, ‘Casanova, Marton und Nanette’ etc) and the first bears the initials M.B. and date, 1872). Rare: OCLC lists Cambridge and Randolph-Macon college (VA) only. Hayn, Bibliotheca Germanorum erotica, 1875, p. 18.
