KING, Jessie M. Album Von Berlin

Globus Verlag, 1906.

Oblong folio with cloth spine and paper covered boards. The upper cover design by Jessie M. King. In the original printed dustwrapper. Internally illustrated with a series of photographs of Berlin. A very good copy, in a good only stained and chipped dustwrapper.

This book was Jessie's first commission for a book cover and she is likely to have been working to quite a specific brief. An original design of an art nouveau girl was withdrawn when a complaint was received from "an influential person, possibly the Kaiser (who is known to dislike art nouveau)" suggesting that the cover was inappropriate for a book of photographs of the German capital. (Portno: German Cover designs of Jessie M King).

PROVENANCE: Bookplate of noted British book collector, George Fleming.
