[Bem, Edvard] Cerna a Zlata

Roudnice nad Labem: Milan Svoboda, 1912.

First edition. Striking and eminently aesthetic Czech production printed in Bohemia just after the turn of the century, bound in exquisite silk over boards with Noveau-style illustration and decorative borders on both covers, lettering on spine in light brown, by Ant. Malik. With six woodcut illustrated full-page title pages (with tissue inserts) as well six full-page plates, headpieces and decorative initials throughout by Czech artist Edvard Bem. A delicate and extremely attractive Czech Art Nouveau rendering. Very good with fraying and wear along the margins of the fragile spine, near fine internally. Extremely scarce. No copies found on internet.

Price: $1,250.00   Item #3893
