(Wiener Werkstatte)

Wiener Werkstatte photo album.

(Vienna: c. 1903). 9 7/8 by 8 1/4 inches. (11)ff. Contains nine early hand-tinted photographs, matted in brown cardboard and bound in. The front endpaper is inscribed "Karniow / August - September 1903." The photographs show a family on vacation by a lake, horseback riding, and in elaborate local costume. One of the figures bears a resemblance to Paul Kraus, an early Wiener Werkstatte member. Bound in Wiener Werkstatte block-printed fabric in gray, black, white, and blue. This is certainly among the earliest book bindings by the WW, and probably the first album bound in their workshop. Fragile cloth on spine expertly and invisibly strengthened. Spine toned, else a fine example of a unique item and a rare survival. Protected in a modern clamshell box. Item #15174

Price: $7,500.00
