Full Description


This is a rare Danish book published in 1902 in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is a novel by Karl Larsen and illustrated by renowned Dutch artist Frants Henningsen. The entire book is in Danish.

The title is ‘I Det Gamle Voldkvarter’ which translated to English is ‘In the Old Violence Quarter.’ This novel depicts the fictious life of bookkeeper Brodersen around 1900 in Copenhagen.

The stunning cover is textured on the front and back. The soft leather spine has gold tooling in a simple and elegant pattern. The inside cover depicts trailing flowers. A handwritten inscription is penned within the book.

There is a full-page colored book plate illustration with the scene of a woman and young boy near a market cart within a cityscape. The illustrator’s initials are included. This colored page was not printed with the book, but it was bound as an additional page. Many black and white sketches are scattered throughout the book.

The book measures approximately 5 inches across 7.5 inches long and .5 inches thick. Your order includes one (1) book as photographed. All props and additional books are for props only and are NOT included in your order.


The book is in excellent antique condition. There is some light foxing and spots on the pages. A loose thread is present along the binding and some very light wear can be seen to the leather spine. This rare book has been beautifully preserved.

Please note, every attempt is taken to detail imperfections in photos, descriptions, and video. The nature of this item does lend itself to normal age-related issues and must be taken into consideration before purchasing.
