Original relief etching (zinkätzung) by Hans Schäfer, initialled and dated in the plate. Printed on smooth machine-made paper. Designed as a bookplate for the German connoisseur Dr Arthur Bräuer (1899-1972), though this copy never used as such. From a portfolio of Dr Bräuer's exlibris, presumably part of his own collection. In the checklist of Dr Bräuer's exlibris made by Ekkehard Hieronimus, this is no. 18. Condition: Excellent.
