udwig Bechstein (1801-1860) was a prolific author and illustrator, although most of his drawings were aimed at children. He illustrated several fairy tales and made other kiddie cartoons like the "frog swim school" to the left.
However, in 1831 it was neither fairy tales nor frogs that occupied him, when he published "Der Todtentanz, ein Gedicht". The book consisted of 200 pages of text with 49 copperplates. Bechstein's faithful outlines were engraved in copper by Johann Gottlieb Abraham Frenzel (1782-1855).
Bechstein's outlines are delicate and most be viewed in full size. This is definitely not a book you will enjoy on Google books.
