Paris: L'Edition d'Art, . Octavo. Full stiff vellum, the upper board handpainted with an elaborate frame of intertwined devices in red and black separating small circular vignettes of birds and heart devices, repeated in a modified fashion on the spine devices, with highlights in gold, and a central vignette of a sailing ship on the rear board, t.e.g., wallet fore- edges. A bit of slight rubbing, but moderately well preserved, internally fine. Item #WRCLIT75177
Later edition. The binding was attributed by a previous owner to art nouveau exponent Charles Septier (although it is not signed by him). However, a small ink signature and date appears on the front top vellum turn-in - "Henry de Bertier June 1926" - and may be either an ownership marking or, just as likely, the proper identification of the artist.
