Julius Streicher's Stürmerverlag in Nürnberg published three extremely anti-Semitic books for children. The illustrations for two of them are by Philip Rupprecht, better known as the Stürmer cartoonist Fips. In 1938 the publishing house framed this draft of a Fips illustration from the book "Der Giftpilz" (The Poisonous Mushroom) and probably gave it to a supporter of the publishing house. It was framed before the Stürmer gave it out because there is an explanation as well as rubber stamp from the publishing house on the reverse side. The drawing is an original draft by Fips, handsigned at the bottom right. This is NOT a print and bears Fips' original signature! Several years ago we were fortunate to be in contact with a relative of someone who used to be employed at the Stürmer publishing house and we were fortunate to offer several original Fips pencil drawings coming from that source. One of our clients who bought this rarity back then is reducing his collection and this item has become available again.

The total size of this unique item is 320 x 380mm or 12-5/8 x 15 inch, the drawing alone is 170 x 180mm or 6-3/4 x 7-1/8 inch. The picture shows a Jew sitting on a bag of money in front of the Börse (Stock Exchange). A full color version of this drawing is on page 42 in the book.
