by (Norelius, Einar)
Goteborg: Ahlen & Akerlund, 1929. This Swedish annual began publication in 1906, continuing for decades. Along with John Bauer, Einar Norelius, created fabulous illustrations, in the style of the Wiener Werkstatte, including artists Joseff Urban and Heinrich Lefler. The inspiration of Kay Nielsen is also very evident. Square 8vo., Bound in tan paper over boards, with a pictorial pastedown on the cover and 12 coloured plates by Norelius tipped on heavy stock. There are several small ink marks on the front cover, near the letters of the title but not affecting the pastedown. Overall toning of the cover and marginal browning. Despite the faults, this is a satisfying copy of a rare and beautiful book from the Golden Era of illustration. Contents fine and bright, with Swedish text. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover.
