Prague: Ant. Vitek,  n.d. (circa 1900)

31 x 21cm, blindstamped and be-ribboned folder with tipped in  30 x 20cm, 40pp book –  of which 30pp have original reproduced pen and ink drawings by Holarek. The title translates to The fairy tale of the innocent.

The text tells of the young angel being sent down to earth and being rejected by the various estates of the nation – ultimately being sentenced to death by the courts. Holarek (1867 – 1919) studied at the art academies in Prague (and Munich for six years) before returning to Prague. This was the public version of the extremely rare deluxe version with original watercolours. Very slight markings to the outer folder and some minor marking internally on the title page from the ribbons which are interleaved through the covers but otherwise a near fine copy of this wonderfully attractive book.
