SPONSEL, JEAN LOUIS - Das Moderne Plakat

Dresden, Verlag von Gerhard Kühtmann. 1897, First Edition. Cloth. Ill.: Various. Book, 4to. vii, 316 pp. Contemporary cloth with original illustrated card wraps bound in. Contemporary bookplate. Exceptional and complete first edition of one of the most important historical publications of the Belle Époque, and which was pivotal in enhancing the acceptation of the poster as a serious art form. This fully illustrated work sets out geographically all the leading artists of the day and famously includes 52 original (signed) colour lithograph plates (as well as 266 monotone illustrations), by the likes of Chéret, Toulouse-Lautrec, Steinlen, Grasset, Mucha, Will Bradley, Louis Rhead, etc. A monumental work, extremely rare in complete form, and all in exceedingly good condition. (Additional images on request). Very Good.
