Descripción:
1935. Kent, Rockwell. Measuring 13 by 9 1/4 inches, this watercolor bears Kent's signature along with the inscription, "to his friend Charly Mortensen, 1935." Mortensen was the telegraph operator aboard the Hans Egede, the ship on which Kent made two of his three celebrated voyages to Igdlorssuit, Greenland, where he would live off and on between 1929 and 1935. His life and work among the native Greenlanders during these years resulted in two of his greatest books: Greenland Journal and Salamina. The present painting, a moving, somber work executed in the artist's typically realistic style, depicts a European sailor, presumably preparing to depart Greenland for home, comforting a native Greenlander who is weeping into her hands at the prospect of their parting. The watercolor is accompanied by Mortensen's autograph book, which contains numerous drawings and inscriptions by friends and Hans Egede passengers, including two drawings by Kent, both signed. One drawing, a charming, informal pen and ink… Leer más

Descripción:
Melbourne: Sign of the Rabbit, 1905. Teague, Violet and Geraldine Rede. Small quarto. (32)pp. Extremely rare first edition. Illustrated with sixteen woodcut illustrations in the Japanese style, six of which are double-page spreads. All but four minor illustrations are hand-initialed in ink by the contributing artist. Set opposite the illustrations, the letterpress-printed verse is a cautionary tale, warning rabbits in their dens to avoid hunter's traps. The atmospheric images, rendered in earth tones, deftly capture both the danger lurking in the night, as well as the peace of a rabbit's simple life. Entirely handmade by Violet Teague and her friend Geraldine Reed in Teague's Melbourne home, Night Fall in the Ti-Tree is the first book in Australia to be produced and illustrated in the Japanese style using colored woodcuts. Teague, who was probably introduced to Japanese prints while studying in England and Europe in the late 1800s, tried to imitate Japanese production techniques as closely as she… Leer más

London: Soncino Press, 1930. Rutherston, Albert. Small quarto. xl, (3), 209pp. One of nine copies printed on Roman Vellum, signed by the editor, Cecil Roth, and the illustrator, Albert Rutherston. With fourteen full-page stencilled illustrations, plus seventy small ornaments, all in color. Rutherston's bright depictions of the Passover story, including illustrations of the Jews under Pharaoh, the parting of the Red Sea, the Ten Commandments, and the prophets looking over modern children at play, bring both joy and gravity to the sacred text. Rutherston collaborated with the Curwen Press repeatedly over his career, and this is perhaps one of his most accomplished works, possibly influenced by his years in Palestine while serving in the British Army. Set in Roman and Italic English type, as well as Hebrew type purchased from Enschedé en Zonen in Holland, the edition embraces the tradition of the pictorial Haggadah while imbuing it with modernity. A Western title page appears at the front of the… Leer más

(Rockport, ME): Gehenna Press, 1998. Baskin, Leonard. Folio. (65)pp. From an edition of fifty, this is one of ten deluxe copies, accompanied by a page of Hecht's manuscript, three watercolor drawings by Baskin, one of the original woodcut blocks, and a suite of woodcuts printed in black with several hand-colored by Baskin. Signed by both Hecht and Baskin at the colophon; Baskin has also signed each of the prints in the book. Hecht's poems, rich with earthy imagery to communicate the individual and common depths of grief and joy, are each faced with a colorful woodcut of a flower. Baskin's signature dark shading and rough edges capture both the gritty beauty of the plants themselves and their untidy but profound reflection of humanity. Bound by Claudia Cohen in full peach morocco, with rules in both blind and gilt, an artful gilt laurel design and yellow leather onlays to covers, matching gilt spine decoration onlaid. Drawings and extra suite housed in cloth-covered chemise. Held, along with the book… Leer más

(Berlin): Officina Serpentis, 1926. Folio. 45pp. From an edition of 340 copies, this is one of seven printed on vellum, with initials added by hand in gold by Hanns Thaddaus Hoyer. A stunning example of manuscript proficiency that highlights typographic expertise, Officina Serpentis' edition of three letters from Plato to his friends and colleagues simultaneously honors and modernizes the customary Early Modern mise-en-page. The original Greek text of each letter has been printed in the Greek Tischendorft typeface by Schelter & Giesecke, of which this edition is its first continuous use. Surrounding the Greek is its translation in German, which is in Gentzsch & Heyse's Elzevier-Cursive. The stylistic harmony of the printing underscores the thesis behind the selection of these three particular letters; previously questioned for their authenticity of authorship, the unification and aesthetic exaltation of these writings posits their genuine linkage to Plato. It perhaps suggests an even larger… Leer más

(London): Doves Press, 1908. Johnston, Edward. Two large octavo volumes. 192; 200pp. One of 250 copies. Printed in red and black by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson and Emery Walker. This collection of Browning's poems explores the many aspects of love between men and women. The colophon is beautifully inscribed in red: "Flourished by Edward Johnston. May 1908/November 1908." The table of contents shows calligraphic flourishes in blue, green, and red by the master calligrapher, while larger flourishes decorate headings throughout the book. These conform to the copy described in Tidcombe's bibliography. The set shows the Doves Press at its most ornate, the severe typography softened to the subject by Johnston's lovely decorations. This title is also notable for being the last book from the Doves Press bearing Emery Walker's name on the colophon. In beautiful Doves-style bindings of gilt-decorated dark blue morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The bindings feature a central gilt arabesque with small red and green… Leer más

Berlin: Einhorn-Presse, 1927. Lechter, Melchior. Tall quarto. (24)pp. From an edition of 600 copies, this is one of only five printed on vellum and with text calligraphed by Melchior Lechter. In addition to writing the text, Lechter also designed the book, including initial letters of gold backed with green leather and onlaid to the pages, and the decorated borders, which are printed in gold and bear printed almond-shaped medallions at their lower sections. These medallions, reminiscent of the iconographic mandorla, each show a distinct mystical design, incorporating symbols and imagery from a variety of Eastern and Western faith traditions, along with other esoteric elements. The book is not shy about the Theosophical overtures of its tale or of its author; it begins and concludes with Hindu lettering in gold, as well as, on the final page, a six-pointed star with four rays suffused with Buddhist symbology, its basic floral outline mirrored in the gold borders. The story itself is an allegorical… Leer más

Newtown: Gregynog Press, 1931. Hughes-Stanton, Blair. Octavo. (10), 25, (3)pp. From an edition of 250 copies, this is one of twenty-five printed on Japanese vellum and bound after a design by Blair Hughes-Stanton himself. It marks Hughes-Stanton's first contribution to the Press' run of special bindings, and the advent of a shift in the style of those bindings toward modernity, embracing restraint while highlighting line and form. Hughes-Stanton likewise supplied as wood engravings the frontispiece, title vignette, and illustrations of all six costumed characters. This is the first book of the Press arranged by William McCance, though set and printed by Idris Jones. Its artistic and critical success helped turn the Press' fortunes and added to its growing reputation as a pinnacle of not only Welsh bookmaking, but of Western printing as a whole. Hughes-Stanton's binding is of full dun-colored levant morocco, with covers bearing vertical panels of blind lines, bordered by gilt frames. Upper cover shows… Leer más

(Alès: PAB, 1960. Picasso, Pablo. One of forty regular copies, signed by the illustrator, Pablo Picasso, and the author, Pierre André Benoit. Thematically similar to plate 22 in La Tauromaquia (1959), which depicts the instant of death of a bull in a bullfight, this single drypoint etching accompanies a brief poem by the author/publisher Benoit. This is the first of two miniature books illustrated by Picasso. This copy specially bound by Georges Leroux in full brown calf, with upper cover bearing a design of three concentric circles, outlined in gilt, of inlaid tan leather spotted with gilt, and at center an overlaid bull's head spotted with metallic red. Lower cover shows same design, but with the colors in opposite places. Spine titling in gilt and metallic red; binder's stamps to foot of doublures; suede endpapers. A remarkable copy, very fine. Housed in chemise and slipcase. (Cramer 102). (1 1/4 by 1 3/4 inches; 33 x 46 mm).

London, 1916. Sangorski, Alberto. Octavo. 10ff + 2 blank leaves. Signed by Sangorkski at the colophon. Alberto Sangorski's unique vellum manuscript suitably echoes the romantic aesthetic championed by Shelley's poetry. Each of the four total miniatures emphasizes the influence of nature, either by literally or figuratively minimizing the stature of the human figure (as in the full-page frontispiece depiction of the titular woodman and the sleeping woman at the title page for "To Night"), co-opting it into allegory (as in the full-page characterization of night itself as a woman), or eschewing humanity entirely (as in the miniature at the foot of page 13, which shows an expansive evening landscape in which a lone turret stands as solitary evidence of civilization). Added to the sense of the manuscript as honorific to the aims of the Romantic poets are the resplendent title page with lettering in red and gold and full floral border, and further florals adorning every subsequent page. Every stanza bears… Leer más

London, 1911. Sangorski, Alberto. Octavo. 8ff., + 8 blank leaves. A unique illuminated manuscript by Alberto Sangorski, who applies his signature to the certification at the colophon. At the outset is a delightful miniature exhibiting an impressive depth of field: at center is Lady Godiva depicted, as legend and artistic convention usually have it, entirely nude, and gazing up at her are various representatives of Coventry. The image has Sangorski's monogram and the date of 1911, and around it swells a finely illuminated border in burnished gold and an array of colors. Calligraphed in red and black with six large illuminated initials, several flourished borders, and both title page and first page of text with floral adornment, the latter being especially finely decorated. Bound by Rivière & Son in an impressively finished binding of full blue morocco, with covers bearing symmetrical design of a gilt frame with a heavily pointillé ground, black inlaid morocco rules, and interlaced strapwork.

Descripción:
London, 1916. Sangorski, Alberto. Octavo. (11)ff., + 3 blank leaves. Signed at the colophon, after the certification statement, by Alberto Sangorski. A unique illuminated manuscript on vellum, in which Sangorski engages with and inserts himself into a genealogy of Romanticism. His devotion to the tradition of the medieval manuscript is at once classical and modern, and deeply entrenched in naturalistic aesthetics; the title page features a lush floral border surrounding a field of vines, a similar border ornaments each of each page of text, and nine large illuminated initials are intertwined with the greenery, the language itself relying on and supporting the landscape of the page. Sangorski's miniatures, of which there are four total, depict scenes of Classical Greek pastoral life, save for the title-page portrait of Gray. These images likewise seat Sangorski himself among the Romantics and Pre-Raphaelites, but also serve the greater purpose of establishing Gray's position at a sort of… Leer más

Descripción:
London, 1908. Sangorski, Francis. Small quarto. 18ff + 5 blank leaves and 1 colophon leaf. Francis Sangorki's unique illuminated manuscript takes as its text Rossetti's highly influential short story, "Hand and Soul," which was first published in 1850 in the pre-Raphaelite periodical, The Germ, and which addressed directly the pre-Raphaelite concern with the relationship between creative expression, moral uprightness, and medieval and Classical practice. Sangorski's rich ornamentation - two full-page plus ten smaller miniatures, illuminated borders of acanthus leaves and sprays, and initials both of stippled gilt with blue or red and backgrounds and of interlocking colorful florals against gilt grounds - is a logical and delightful tribute to Rossetti's influence. Spreads for the preface, title page, and epilogue are particularly lush. At the end of the volume is a calligraphed certification leaf, stating that the book, with its binding, was completed for Gannon & Cassidy of New York. Works by… Leer más
