An arresting series of images by the Austrian artist Erhard Dier (1893-1969), who was a student of Camillo Sitte and Josef Jungwirth at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Dier traveled to Switzerland, Italy and Spain before starting a career as an illustrator, working on designs for Austrian banknotes, tapestries, porcelain, wallpapers, and church windows. While generally known for a florid and temperate style, the present suite offers dramatic contrast, evoking some of the darker spirit found in the work of artists like Gustave Doré or Odilon Redon. Dier contributed to many issues of 'Die Muskete' around this time, always credited as "Amadeus" and hence explaining the difficulty in tracing his full body of work. Scarce: OCLC/WorldCat lists only the copy at the Unversity of Southern California. Stain on cover, two etchings sprung and with light wear at corners, otherwise fine.

        [Original Watercolor Dust Jacket Design]

      [London], 1927. Original pen and watercolor drawing (190 x 128 mm) on artboard (255 x 198 mm). Signed in the image. Some dust soiling and smudges, some tape residue on verso with adhesion losses, pencil editorial comment on verso; still, in good state. A draft front jacket panel design by Pares for the dust jacket for Edith Ayrton Zangwill's last novel, THE HOUSE (John Murray, 1928). An editorial note (in faint pencil) on the verso implies that this design was rejected: "The Author would like a beautiful grey stone house of Tudor style - the drawing rough does not suggest a haunted house. Too modern - not two houses only one." Pares was a prolific and accomplished designer of dust jackets from the 1920s through the late 1940s, with over 600 designs credited to her. Many of the titles she designed for were mysteries or thrillers, but also included such titles as GOOD-BYE MR. CHIPS and Stapledon's STAR MAKER. Given the apparent surprising scarcity of Zangwill's novel, we've not had an opportunity to compare this draft artwork with the finished product.
