Small quarto. Original black boards, titles to spine gilt, black and gilt endpapers, top edge yellow, text embellished throughout with clusters of silver stars. With the pictorial dust jacket designed by Vassos. Contents very faintly toned. An excellent copy in a price-clipped jacket with a few tiny chips, partial toning to front panel and mild rubbing to rear panel. With 12 black and white plates by John Vassos. First edition illustrated by John Vassos, first printing. Romanian-born John Vassos (1898–1985) was an American industrial and graphic designer famous for designing the first commercially available television sets and many other popular products and logos. In 1926 Vassos's design for a cover illustration for a stage production of Salome caught the attention of publishers E. P. Dutton, resulting in the commission for this book, which would become the first of nine books illustrated by Vassos between 1927 and 1935. A delightful example of modernist book design, with beautiful endpapers and jacket designed by Vassos. N° de ref. de la librería 106700
