8vo. London: Chatto and Windus, 1898. 8vo, [1-89], 118 pp. Full stiff vellum over boards, elaborately decorated in gilt, gilt edges, by Zaehnsdorf signed and dated 1905. Very slight soiling but a lovely copy. First English edition, of which there is no corresponding American edition.Presentation copy inscribed “To dear Madame Van de Velde from Minnie Jackson Christmas 1905”. The upper cover has MSVdeV in gilt within a wreath so clearly this was bound for Jackson as a gift for Van de Velde. The binding is entirely appropriate as the recipient’s husband Henry Van de Velde was the founder of the Belgian Art Nouveau movement (Inventory #: 107331)
