About this Item

New York, 1950. Small octavo, softcover, hand-sewn in printed wrappers with printed title-abel affixed to front cover. 16 pages, with initial, marks, and cover designs by Hugo Steiner Prag. Designed and printed by John Warren Locke at the Workshop of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Translated from the first edition published at Mainz in 1925, then edited and hand set by Eleanor Steiner-Prag. There is a small glue smudge beneath the label on the front cover, but otherwise a very good to fine copy. A printed slip from the publisher (Eleanor Steiner-Prag and the friends of Hugo Steiner-Prag, in celebration of his seventieth birthday) laid in, tells us this little pamphlet was not completed and issued until 1952. Also laid in is a Christmas card, with a long note in ink signed by Eleanor Steiner-Prag. The card is illustrated by Wolfgang Lederer, one of Steiner-Prag's disciples and a noted illustrator in his own right. Mrs. Steiner-Prag mentions him by name in the note. Steiner-Prag talks about book design and the interactions of publisher and designer. Bookseller Inventory # 5583
