[Sacker, Amy- In Original Publishers Cloth Wrappers] Captain Fracasse

Berkeley: L. C. Page & Company, 1900.

Two volumes. Exqusite cover and spine design by Amy Sacker, noted American book designer, illustrator, painter, and teacher. Full violet cloth with near all-over cover gilt stamped design consisting of horizontal stylized vine and blossom pattern, gilt with similar gilt stamped motif. IN SCARCE PUBLISHER'S VIOLET CLOTH LINED WRAPPERS, stamped in gilt on spine. Both volumes in fine condition, but both spines in bright light show through as blue, rather than purple, a rather common result of oxidation for this color of leather, but the effect is unobtrusive. One of the more pleasing Art Nouveau designs by Sacker, made more desirable in their original cloth wrappers (slightly worn). The only copy we have ever seen in this condition, and with wrappers.

Price: $375.00   Item #5877
