Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau.

A co-founder of the "Janus-Presse", the first German private printing press of the "Buchkunstbewegung", Tiemann advanced to one of the most popular book artists and was commissioned by various publishing houses with creating covers, titles, vignettes and illustrations. He thus shaped the appearance of books issued by publishers including the "Insel Verlag" and the "Rowohlt Verlag" up to the First World War.

Traces of a postmark; some small ink spots. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
