Schwarz, Armin [pseud. here: Jean Qui Rit].

Ein Märchenbuch für Erwachsene, 1908

Schwarz, Armin [pseud. here: Jean Qui Rit]. Illustrations by Art [Artur] Scheiner. Ein Märchenbuch für Erwachsene. Budapest: G. Grimm. Printed by Viktor Hornyanszky, 1908. First edition. A gorgeous custom art binding of a scarce work of Art Nouveau or Secession era erotica -- "fairy tales for grown-ups" -- written in German but published in Budapest! Scarce, with only copies located on OCLC First Search at the National Library of Poland and a Dutch library. 8vo. 20.5 by 15 cm. 77, [1] pp. With a dozen "fairy tales", each accompanied with a provocative color plate and black and white illustrations interspersed. The binding is an abstract explosion of stars, and with its symmetrical geometric scheme, anticipatory of the Art Deco movement that would soon secede or perpetuate the artistic movement known as Secession. The original pictorial wraps are bound in. Fine. Full Leather. (#005147)
