Signed Niewe Kunst (Art Nouveau) binding design by Jan Bertus Heukelom in gold on light green linen weave cloth of the titles superimposed over two stylized Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) branches; the spine is lined with a vertical line of 7 immature Scots pine cones. Yellow tinted edges; pale green eps.

Three books of poetry by Dr. J. B. Schepers, which follows Bragi, the skaldic god of poetry in Norse mythology, through three Dutch landscapes.

Heukelom's masterwork of Art Nouveau design is a stylized allusion to the Scots pine forests of the Netherlands, which factor prominently in Schepers' poetry.

A near fine copy of this Art Nouveau masterwork with faint wear to the extremities.
