HOLME, CHARLES [ED]. - Modern Design in Jewellery and Fans.

London, The Studio 1902. Quarto publisher's printed wrapper (some wear to the spine); numerous illustrations (17 colour plates including one printed on silk). ¶ A very useful survey of all that is new and beautiful in modern design in Europe and England: high art nouveau in France - Aubert, Bing, Grasset, Lalique, Mucha, &c; and national substrata such as arts and crafts in Britain - Ashbee, Jesse King; Mackintosh, &c; the Seccesion and Werkstatte in Austria and Germany - Olbrich, Mesmer, Anna Wagner, Mohring &c. As with all of The Studio's efforts, the aim is education and advance; Holme says in his preliminary note, 'So long as a public is to be found that will purchase trinketry in imitation of wheel-barrows, cocks and hens, flower-pots, and moons and stars, so long will the advance in art be retarded'.
