"Angelic Archers," Poetry Booklet with Nude Male Cover Illustration by Scheibe

$1,950

About

Rare and beautifully produced, this small booklet of poetry by Alfred Richard Meyer was published in 1921 with a stylized cover illustration by Richard Scheibe depicting two archers with angel wings, standing back to back, one nude and the other clothed in modern dress. Scheibe is best known for his bronze nudes, highly coveted, but his works on paper are very rare. Here he collaborated with Meyer, who was known for being a gourmand, a cabaret-goer, a nude bather and a poet with a fanciful, humorous approach to the arts. Meyer placed his poetry in a pale brown cover, with an oval blue label, and hand-addressed it to his clients.
