Includes two color illustrations (frontis. and p.132), as well as many Art Nouveau decorations (including floriated initial caps, head and tail pieces) throughout, as well as period photographs and Art Nouveau drawings from artists such as Florence Lundborg, Marion Taverner and Grace Irving. A very good, bright copy with faint flecking to the front and rear boards and a small patch of rubbing ( x ) on the front design. Exceptionally scarce, especially so when bright.
