King, Jessie M. (illus).
Leicester Square, London. The Studio. [ 1919].
The 1919 Christmas Supplement to The Studio magazine featuring the Christmas carol with 13 color plates, image area approx 6 x 4 1/2 inches on pages 10 1/4 x 8 1/2 pages. Bound with cord through punched holes and protected by rather tattered glassine wrappers. Corners slightly bumped, light creasing to title page, faint band of toning to lower edge of title and half-title pages; color plates in overall very good clean condition. The supplement opens with hand-lettered lyrics and sheet music, followed by eleven exquisitely printed illustrations depicting characters and scenes from the carol. King was influenced by the Art Nouveau style and Symbolism, imbuing her work with an other-worldly character. A laid-in sheet of paper informed contemporary readers that drawings were available for ten guineas each. Item #56707
