Oblong 12mo. Original full smooth buckram cloth with elastic bands and holder for pencil. A stunning sketch with original Art Nouveau designs for decorative motifs and wallpapers or textiles, 30 leaves in all, in colored inks and watercolors, some with gold wash, on both sides of Whatman's drawing paper, with artist's monogram and date in purple ink on inside cover. A truly wonderful and graphically pleasing collection of art by Pickford Waller, (1849-1930) artist, illustrator and designer of bookplates, wallpapers and fabrics in the Art Nouveau style. He was a friend of Whistler and James Guthrie of the Pear Tree Press, for whom he worked on several books. Scarce. Fine.
