Marcus Behmer, Nobody Can Resist His Fate

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).
