One volume from the heyday (1896-1908) of this magazine, the source of the term “Jugendstil” (Jugend-style), the German version of Art Nouveau. The volume is complete in 53 issues, 1094 pages, 53 often beautiful title pages, numerous text illustrations and various advertisements.
With contributions from well-known writers like Georg Hirth, Gerhard Hauptmann, Fritz von Ostini, Hans Heinz Ewers and Detlev von Liliencron and artists like Julius Dietz, Fidus, Leo Putz, Fritz Erler and Franz von Lenbach.
It provides a good portrait of Germany at the beginning of the 20th century, its political life, culture and art movements.
The book is in fair condition. Firmly bound, no tears, no loose pages or spots. However, in a number of pages the top left corners are cut off, but fortunately outside the texts and illustrations (see photos); some pages have small holes, mostly outside the text and illustrations. Only on page 1051 a piece is torn from the text.
Dimensions: 29 × 24 × 5 cm, weight: 3.3 kg.

The magazine Jugend (1896-1940) was the namesake of the German Art Nouveau movement and played a key role in the art debates in Germany in the early 20th century.
In addition, the magazine also made an important contribution to the introduction of Impressionism in Germany.
Many well-known artists have contributed to Jugend, including Bruno Paul, Thöny, Thomas Theodor Heine, Hans Thoma, Franz von Stuck and Heinrich Zille.
The journal also covered satirical and critical topics in culture, such as the increasing influence of the churches, (especially Catholicism) and the political right in the Centre Party.
From the First World War, Jugend was becoming a national German and Bavarian magazine. That changed until the mid-1920s, when the issues began catering to the artists of the younger generation. After 1933, the magazine changed to fit in with the trend of National Socialism. In 1940 Jugend was discontinued.
