Prince Henry of Prussia in America: Historical Review of His Highness' American Travels

New York: The Elite Art Press, 1903. 1st. Hardcover. A WONDERFUL DOCUMENT IN THE WARM HISTORY OF TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY GERMAN-AMERICAN RELATIONS. The very uncommon 1903 1st edition of this exhaustive retelling of the historic trip made to The United States by Prussia's Prince Henry (brother of Kaiser Wilhelm) in early 1902. The 1st edition was also called the "Imperial Purple Edition", intended to impress in its luxury and scale, and was limited to only 1,000 copies. Surprisingly, the binding of this very heavy (14+ lbs.), thick folio has held up nicely and is very strong. The front cover though show considerable pealing along the front hinge and there's notable fading as well along the spine, making this copy Good+ only. Top-edge gilt, deckled fore and bottom edges. Crisp black-and-white portraits thruout (including J.P. Morgan) and a nicely-printed text on thick, high-quality paper. In spite of the chipping along the front cover, this remains a solid, presentable copy of what must be a truly uncommon title in its original 1903 printing. Good. Item #11050

Price: $1,000.00
