De Kleine Koning
Amsterdam: Holkema & Warendorf Publishers, 1910. First edition thus. Large squarish folio size. In original publishers full beige pebbled cloth with illustration of comical king set off against a black background, bold gilt-blocking on cover, blindstamping, beveled boards, silk endsheets. Twelve exquisite mounted color plates highlighted using bold gilt as gold in the illustrations with striking bright colors, by HANS PELLAR. Each page with borders and text opposite illustrations. Printed (and mounted) on extremely thick watercolor paper. Superlatives lacking in describing the quality of this projection, no doubt trying to one-up the German first issue produced in Munich. One plate with crease, otherwise a strikingly clean and fresh copy of a scarce book to find in any presentable condition, owing to its size and weight. Pellar's illustrations here are among the most colorful and imaginative of any in the Jugendstil catalog.
