"[Pogany, Willy]. Tannhauser; Parsifal; Lohengrin. London; NY; London, G.G. Harrap; T.Y. Crowell; G.G. Harrap, (1911-1913). Three quarto volumes. (128); (155); (188)pp. First edition. Lohengrin is inscribed by Pogany, dated 1929. Each volume is lavishly illustrated throughout with large black & white drawings, as well as with softly-colored full-page lithographs and tipped-in lithographic plates: Tannhauser has sixteen plates, Parsifal has sixteen, and Lohengrin has eight plates. Many ornate borders, background designs, and historiated initials, in color and black & white, illuminate the calligraphic text, which is printed on a heavy gray paper. The three volumes were adapted from operas by Wagner based on German medieval legends, and the text was translated into a poetic narrative by T.W. Rolleston, the Irish writer and poet. A prolific, Hungarian-born illustrator, Willy Pogany illustrated many books for the English market and eventually settled in the United States. The ornate bindings, which were also designed by Pogany, are pictorially gilt-decorated gray, red, and brown cloth respectively"--Bromer Booksellers.
