Title translates to "Privately" or "In Private", or "Under Four Eyes." Bound in brown linen-weave cloth with large embossed distinctive cover design by Reznicek of a stylishly dressed couple staring into each other's eyes. Attired in tux, gown, jewels, and fur stole, the couple is out for an evening's entertainment (the opera?). Very Belle Epoque. Stamped in black, white, pink, grey, and gilt.
