See my big post on Marcus Behmer from a few years ago.
If I'm interpreting the auction house correctly, "Niemand kann wider sein Schicksal" is a picture story (for adults) on a single sheet made by Marcus Behmer in 1905 (printed later?) and dedicated to Harry Kessler (see Journey to the Abyss: The Diaries of Count Harry Kessler, 1880-1918 and Berlin in Lights: The Diaries of Count Harry Kessler, 1918-1937).

I'm making postcards of my favorite images from the archives -- vintage oddities and also the work of the living. (The creators were kind enough to give permission.) Contribute $10 and receive a postcard pack as a thank you.
The first set of 10 designs (the "December 2017 edition") is now gone. Thanks! The February 2018 is now available.

I try not to think about how much I would pay for a copy of Hilde Krüger's 1924 children's book Der Widiwondelwald. Some links (in German): one, two, three -- see the full book as smaller images at the last link to the kibook blog.
[Update: this was briefly in print last year -- might still be able to find it.]
I kept coming across this book when working on my Kinderbuch series over the years.

Bookseller's description: "[AVANT-GARDE POETRY] HINO Shunsuke. Shishû SEKIJI NO KUBI WO KIRU. Tôkyô, Erosu-dô. Shôwa 4 . 18.5 x 12.7, bound Western-style in wrappers with illustrated covers, book design and illustrations throughout by Iguchi Masao. A product of the Nagoya avant-garde. The illustrations and design of this "CUTTING THE BABY'S THROAT" are jarring, some of the poems sound and feel like they were written while falling down a flight of stairs. The paper is browned and some pages a bit edgeworn but a very good copy overall of this ephemeral production."
