In Bohemia with Du Maurier. The first of a series of reminiscences. With 63 original drawings by G. Du Maurier, illustrating the artist's life in the 'fifties (London: T. Fisher Unwin: 1897).

This copy is distinguished by its fin-de-siecle fine binding, in red silk with a woven pattern featuring a fleur-de-lys design. The original binder's ticket of the Dublin bookbinder N. Calwell and Sons is present. It has a gold and black label to the spine and gold to the top-edge of the text block, which is in fine condition. There is a gift inscription on the front free end-paper (please see photographs).

This book is a memoir written by Felix Moscheles (1833-1917) and illustrated by George du Maurier (1834 – 1896) of the two friends early days together studying art, painting and living in London, Paris, Antwerp, Dusseldorf and other cities. Lots of anecdotes about such diverse figures as the poet Robert Browning and the singer Maria Malibran (the book includes a sketch of her too).

"Named after his godfather the composer Felix Mendelsohn, Moscheles was an English painter, advocate of Esperanto and peace activist who helped develop early international dispute resolution protocols at The Hague.

Du Maurier was a Franco-British cartoonist and writer, known for his work in Punch and for his novels Trilby and The Martian. He is the grandfather of the novelist Daphne du Maurier.
