Pictures from the First Volume of Goethes Werke, or the Works of Johann Wolfgang von Göthe [Goethe], illustrated by leading German artists, edited by H. Dünker, Stuttgart & Leipzig, printed by Deutsche Verlagsamstalt (formerly Ed. Hallberger).

These scans were kindly sent to me by Alexey Dombrovsky. Since German copyright, sa I understand it, is life plus 90 years for identified works, some of these images may in fact be under copyright; I have tried to identify the artists from their signatures where I can. Works by Adolf Schill (1848 – 1911) are now out of copyright, as are works by Franz Xavier Simm (1853 – 1918), and unidentfied works are probably out of copyright.
