The drawings - some of which are very finely executed, though most constitute only perfunctory sketches - include numerous portraits. Many depict Leischner's wife Stefanie, née Friedrich, others show caricatures, interiors etc. The several signed full-page watercolours and pencil drawings by Otto Rudolf Schatz (1900-61) deserve special mention: these include a number of decidedly anti-fascist and anticlerical caricatures, but also a full-page pencil drawing and a full-page entry with two illustrations by Franz von Zülow (1883-1963).

- Schatz's contributions have been researched and documented for a catalogue raisonné by Dr Cornelia Cabuk, Belvedere, Vienna. - Binding somewhat rubbed and warped. Edges of leaves slightly darkened; occasional slight spots..
