Fourteen coloured plates with accompanying captioned tissue guards. Square 4to, Paper covered boards with printed paper label laid to the front, illustrated endpapers. A collection of coloured drawings and paintings with a Christmas theme, selected from works by a group of young girls, aged 14 to 16, all who studied under Professor Cizek at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna. The images and colours created are bold and bright, men and women in traditional peasant dress and toys from days gone by figure prominently in many of the paintings. The drawings themselves were done on stone and then taken to the lithographer, Herr Berger, who took great care to copy the colourings of the students' pictures, without adding any of his own stylings to the finished pieces. "The pictures, the end-papers and cover of the book are all original lithographs [.]." -fromthe preface. Boards are grubby and watermarked rubbed away in two places at the front and one at rear. The backstrip is missing although the binding is still holding. Some of the pages are loose but the plates and tissue guards are at least very good and complete; nop tear or loss making this internally a lovely copy. The ffep, introduction and title page are missing; the preface by Francesca Wilson is complete.
