Prague: Topič, 1890. 8vo. 86 pp. Superb cover design and illustrations by Viktor Oliva. On Viktor Oliva's pioneering cover designs: "…Since Oliva did not from the start imitate old styles and sought new expressive possibilities, he was able, by integrating a book's cover, illustrations, font and format into a single whole, to achieve that which was later dictated by the modern principles of book design."
