1907 1st ed Dream of Fair Women Harrison Fisher Girl Illustrated Color Poetry

Harrison Fisher (1875–1934), “historian of American Beauty,” was an American illustrator whose works regularly appeared on the cover of ‘Cosmopolitan’ Magazine in the early 1900s.

“At the top of the heap stands Harrison Fisher, creator of the Fisher Girl and most popular of all Americans who ply brush and pencil for reproduction. By reason of his industry and because of the uniform soundness of his drawings and color sense, he is the acknowledged master of the pretty girl picture” (Cosmopolitan).

This first edition of the book ‘A Dream of Fair Women’ is filled with romantic full-color illustrations of the "Fisher Girl" type. The illustrations are inspired from the text of famous poems decorated in Art Nouveau style by E. Stetson Crawford. A fine piece!
