  This is a fascinating book on Art Nouveau design for everything from ceramics to vases, lamps, candlesticks, consoles with mirrors, cutlery, jewelry, and much more. The designs are fabulous, and this book is a great resource for someone intereted in design of this era. The book was compiled by Professor Anton Seder, Director of the School of Art, Strassburg, and has an introduction by Lewis F. Day. London: B.T. Batsford, High Holborn, 1899. 780 subjects on 46 plates. The cover bears staining and discoloration, and the spine is shaken, with some of the plates loose, but the plates themselves are all in excellent condition.
