About This Item

Frankfurt, 1908. Two leaves in manuscript, on stiff card. Folio. Laid into, and formerly sewn into, handcrafted full soft calf presentation album, stamped and decorated in blind, with pictorial vignette, with silk moiré endsheets. Spine quite rubbed, with short crack, but sound, lower edge of one endsheet frayed, binding very good; smudge affecting five letters in the manuscript, but it is otherwise about fine. A handsome presentation of a calligraphic honorary presentation, made on the occasion of the Homeworkers' Exhibition, to Jakob Hermann Epstein, chairman of the board of the exhibition, in recognition of his services to the exhibition, signed by eight officials on the second leaf, 19 April 1908. The manuscript itself is beautifully rendered in red, blue and brown inks, with six gilt highlighted initials and four red decorated initials, with border ornaments in red.
