BIERBAUM (Otto Julius). VOGELER (Heinrich). Mein ABC. Mit Erlaubnis Otto Julius Bierbaums mit Vogeler-Initialen und Breitkopf-Fraktur für einige Freunde gedruckt von Gebrüder Klingspor. Offenbach am Main. 1908. In-12 (16 x 14,5 cm). (28) pp. in publisher's cream paper boards, first cover illustrated, lithographed in black and enhanced with gold, letters A, B, C, illustrated in three vertical bands. First edition of twenty-six lithographs by the Jugendstil artist Heinrich Vogeler (1872-1942). Painter, graphic designer, architect influenced by Art Nouveau, he created this ABC by imagining twenty-six small delicate central vignettes, decorations of a pre-Raphaelite, on which he drew a large letter occupying the whole square defined by the illustration. The letter is then richly enhanced with gold. The letter is captioned with verses by Otto Julius Bierbaum (1865-1910). Elegant typography, "printing for some friends". Rare and very nice copy.
