Berlin, Verlag von Kanter & Mohr, n.d. (circa 1895/1900).

Large oblong folio, loose as issued in publisher’s blue cloth portfolio with ties (missing one tie), illustrated endpapers. Title-page and 80 fine numbered plates, of which many coloured. Complete.

First and only edition.

The fine plates show the influence of Eclecticism and the early Art Nouveau style.


A very good copy.
