Wien: Larisch Pflegestätte für Schrift u. Buchgestaltung, 1925. Ramsauer, Hertha. First edition. Wraps. 8vo, unpag.; original handmade paper wrappers, gilt endleaves, saddle-stitched. Fine. Item #202184

One of an unspecified but certainly small number of copies reproduced in high-quality facsimile on fine Whatman paper from original calligraphic manuscript by Hertha Ramsauer. Text printed in ultramarine, initial letters done by hand in red. Hertha Ramsauer was assistant and eventually wife to Rudolf von Larisch, whose workshops in lettering and book arts at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule were a major legacy of the Austrian Jugendstil movement. An uncommon and most attractive little booklet.
