Berlin: B. Cassirer, .
First Edition. Oblong quarto. Color pictorial paper covered boards, color decorated endpapers, 16 superb full-page pochoir colored illustrations by K. F. E. von Freyhold. Celebrated for its depth of feeling and delicate coloration and composition, these series of illustrations by Freyhold are among the finest to be found in any Jugendstil books of the period. A book seldom found without repairs, this copy is completely unsophisticated with all plates clean and bright. The spine has some slight fraying on top and bottom, corners slightly chipped and hinges only starting to weaken with some separation. Covers show some wear and soiling, yet a very nice copy indeed, in its original state of a book many consider to be among the finest representation of Jugendstil art.
