BOEHN, Max von (1860-1932) -- Selbstmord und Selbstmörder. Verzeichnis der Büchersammlung von Max v. Boehn. Charlottenburg: [printed in Ansbach by Brügel & John], 1907.
Large 8o (230 x 145 mm). Original wrappers.
ONE OF ONLY 60 COPIES PRINTED, all on handmade paper. This, the only collection of books dedicated to suicide and self-murderers, is tantamount to a bibliography, and valuable as a continuation of Emilio Motta's "Bibliografia del Suicido," 1890. It has never been reprinted. Boehn was a well-known art historian. This appears to be an advance copy, before the separately printed title and its verso was added. Folter 86.
