Description:
Barcelona: Imprenta-Escuela de la Casa Provincial de Caridad, 1945. First Edition. Very good. Small 4to. vi, 130 pp., illustrated. Original printed wrappers (a little worn, some dust-soiling). One of 500 numered copies from a total edition of 1000, this one being No. 160. NOT ex-library! Essential catalogue of 724 incunables, the Catalonian imprints particularly well described, with extensive bibliographic references for each entry, and with numerous illustrations in the text. There is no digital surrogate for this catalogue (or the 1967 Supplement), nor has it been superceeded as we learn from the Bibl. Univ. de Barcelona's own website: "Currently, a large portion of the incunabula collection awaits recataloguing. While this effort will give us definitive figures, we can estimate at present that the collection houses some 830 editions and nearly 1,240 copies.   "Of all the libraries in Spain, the collection of fifteenth-century editions in the Rare Book and Manuscript CRAI Library ranks third in… Read more

Description:
Leiden: H.W. Hazenberg Jr., 1816. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. Title (1 f.), iv, 189, [1] pp. containing altogether 3780 lots (with several sequences of lot numbering). Bound in contemporary blue boards, new spine and corner tips, edges completely untrimmed, first and last leaf dust-soiled. Little known library sale catalogue of a well-known Leiden professor of anatomy who made very significant contributions to Dutch paleopathology. Sandifort (1742-1814) was trained by world-famous Bernard Seigfried Albinus, and became devoted to applied and clinical anatomy. From 1777 to 1781 he published "Observationes anatomico-pathologicae," later followed by the famous series of atlases on the contents of the Leiden Anatomical Museum ("Museum Anatomicum Lugdunuo-Batavae," 1793-1835) which was subsequently completed by his son equally famous son Gerard. "This monumental work is still valued today for its beautiful engravings and descriptions of a great variety of paleopathological conditions"… Read more

Description:
Paris and Mecca, 1799. Hardcover. Very good. Large 8vo. Together 6 volumes (collations below). Contemporary French red morocco, smooth spines lettered direct, all edges gilt (some wear to binding extremities, spines a little darkened). These volumes include all of Savary's accounts of his traveld to Egypt and Greece, plus his very important translation of the Koran from the Arabic into French, with a biography of Mohamed; the present set was beautifully bound in the late 18th- or very early 19th-century. Claude-Etienne Savary (1750-1788) was an orientalist, pioneer of Egyptology and translator of Koran. In 1776 he departed for Egypt, and after having remained successively in Alexandria and Cairo, he explored (for nearly two years) several islands of Greece and the Archipelago, in particular those of Rhodes. Savary provided many details concerning the daily life of the population. A fluent speaker of Arabic, Savary's sensitive and vibrant account is a contrast striking with the austere description… Read more

Description:
Leningrad: Academia, 1927. FIRST EDITION. Softcover. Very good. Small 8vo (150 x 110 mm). [2], 218, [6] pp. With a portrait of the author. Original Constructivist styled wrapper designed by Valentina Khodasevich (small tears of the overlapped wrappers, Soviet bookshops' stamps on the recto of the back cover, a few spots on the back cover and extremities of the pages, few pages slightly loose, shadow on the first and last pages). Overall a very good copy, preserved in a fine fitted protective case. These memoirs are not only a portrait of a young provincial actress and her life, told simply and without embellishment, but also a collection of interesting details from theatre life of 19th century. Maria Gavrilovna Savina (1854-1915) was a renowned Russian actress. Born Maria Podramentsova into a family of stage actors, she debuted in Minsk in 1869, then joined the Mikhail Leontovsky troupe in Kharkov. While there, she married the actor N. N. Slavich who used the stage name Savin, and has been known as… Read more

Description:
New-London [CT]: Printed by Timothy Green, 1760. 16mo. [2], 118 pp. Collation: A-P4. With the Articles for the Administration of Church Discipline bound in with its own title page and the Timothy Green 1760 imprint, but the pagination and signatures continuous. Bound in contemporary American calf over thin wooden "scaleboard." Spine chipped at the head and the foot; upper corner of the front board broken, some chipping to the other corners; a bit toned and lightly foxed; in good condition. There can be no doubt that this scaleboard binding was made in Connecticut ca. 1760-1763: not only was the book printed in New-London for the exclusive use of Connecticut congregationalists, but the first blank leaf is inscribed: "From the Colony of Connecticut to the Church att Somars [sic] 1763" (i.e. at Somers, CT). It is a remarkable fact that our binding is older than all the Connecticut examples in the Papantonio "Early American Bindings" Collection by more 20 years (the earliest one obtained by him was bound… Read more

Description:
Gottingen, Germany: Steidl, 2014. Fine/Fine. Small square 8vo. Original publisher's cloth, slipcase. Preserved in mylar sleeve and custom black slipcase with silver foil-stamped spine label. This astonishing photo-book is a masterpiece we will forever regret selling. Signed by the photographer "Ken Schles NYC 2015" on the title-page, and preserved in a deluxe foil-stamped protective slipcase by Cloverleaf Studio. In our opinion, "Invisible City" compares with Robert Frank's "The Americans" and Brassai's "Paris de Nuit," and MUST BE SEEN to be fully appreciated. STATEMENT by the publisher: "For a decade Ken Schles watched the passing of time from his Lower East Side neighborhood. His camera fixed the instances of his observations, and these moments became the foundation of his invisible city. Friends and architecture come under the scrutiny of his lens and, when sorted and viewed in the pages of this book, a remarkable achievement of personal vision emerges."

Description:
Charterhouse School, 1871. Hardcover. Very good. Dates: 1871-1877 and 1910. Small 4to. 37 ff., mostly with newspaper clippings neatly pasted in on both sides + 4 ff. in manuscript ("Summary of Scores" from 1871-1877 and 1910). Several leaves excised; it is possible that the present album had been re-purposed. On a few of the stubs appear fragmentary MS notations suggesting that the notebook may have once been divided alphabetically. We find on certain stubs "Ai" followed immediately by "Ao" and then several leaves later: "Her. - Hes" followed by "Io." Binding rebacked with smooth calf. In very good condition. Highly interesting homemade album of Cricket Scores, available nowhere else, specifically documenting the triumphs of three young members of the Blomfield family, namely: E.G. (Edward George), C.J. (Charles James), and R.T. (Reginald Theodore). One wonders if the present album was created in order to promote friendly competition between the brothers, two of whom went to Haileybury School, and… Read more

Description:
New York: S. Hand and H. Garson, 1796. Softcover. Very good. 12mo. 23, [1] pp. Crude title-page woodcut vignette, with caption: "I'll shave 'em like a punish'd soldier, DRY. No killing Swine shall make a sweeter cry." Collation: [A]6 B6. Complete. Modern sympathetic wrappers. Lightly toned, but the paper stock strong. Evidence of tape stain in two gutter margins. Early American imprint of a fake "Sermon for the Fast" which ridicules clerical, legal, political, and military "shavers." The text was attributed by Evans to John Macgowan, author of several works issued under the pseudonyms of "The Shaver" and "Pasquin Shaveblock." But Macgowan could not have written the present work as he had died in 1780, and the pamphlet first appeared in London in 1795. Furthermore, on the verso of the title-page are two "Testimonies in Favor of this Sermon," both of which were published fifteen years after Magowan's death. The one from the "Monthly Review" (1795, vol. XVI, no. 7, p. 357) reads in part: "This… Read more

[4], 218 pp. Contemporary Parisian binding by Rene Simier: brown calf elaborately gilt with large plaques and small tools, discretely inlaid in red and black, smooth spine similarly gilt, brown moire endpapers, turn-ins gilt, a.e.g. Some foxing, traces of damp at end. Large flowing gift inscription opposite title-page. Binding with minor wear, which does not detract from its beauty and interest. An exuberantly decorated French Romantic bookbinding by Rene Simier (1772-1843) who -- with Joseph Thouvenin -- popularized the genre, and in certain respects brought the art of French bookbinding to its apogee. In his long and distinguished career Simier was appointed binders to Empress Marie-Louise, Louis XVIII, Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicily (subsequently Duchesse de Berry). According to Ramsden ("French Bookbinders 1789-1848") Simier's "variety and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career." The large and highly… Read more

Description:
[Edinburgh], 1703. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. Together two volumes, small quarto. 12 pp., COMPLETE. Stitched in old blue paper wrappers at a recent date. Contemporary (or near-contemporary) author attributions in ink on title-pages, faint blind-stamps on first and final leaves of both pamphlets. BOTH editions of Sinclair's pamphlet recommending Scottish parliamentary reform, such as a triennial act, as well as toleration for dissent. The pamphlet demonstrates a royalist thread in Country discourse that can be linked to Episcopalian interests. Two editions appeared in 1703, both sina loca (but Edinburgh). The first edition is ESTC T57077. The second edition is distinguished by the title: 'Some thoughts *upon* the present state of affairs' (ESTC T155643). Priority is here established for the first time, afforded by careful examination of both editions side-by-side; it seems probable that ESTC T155643 was printed from ESTC T57077: compare the catchword on p. 2: in ESTC T155643 this catchword… Read more

Description:
Lyon? (or Paris), 1570. The coffret measures (in mm) ca. 280 (long) x 190 (wide) x 115 (high): around sides are four looped metal fittings for leather straps, all five original hinges on back, on front the original iron hasp facade with forged "pine leaf" decoration, keyhole & lock mechanism; on slightly dome top nine iron reinforcements, the whole fixed with original nails; original linen lined interior. This artifact has many serious condition problems: the left side of the lid is present but detached; many areas of the wood are chipped, wormed, and/or defective, but there are no signs of restoration whatsoever. Affixed to the inside of the lid is a large woodcut (ca. 250 x 170 mm) of two lovers (see below). The woodcut is torn, chipped and damaged, with evidence of old insect activity; there is loss of considerable portions of text and image, including the left portion of the man, the banderole above him, and the dog at his feet. With many significant faults, and priced accordingly. An important… Read more

First Edition, a very good copy in the original exuberant binding designed by Herbert Bayer (1900-1985), of the major figures of the Bauhaus movement; Bayer also designed the book, and remains and an important typographical contribution by him. Of all the artists to pass through the Bauhaus, none lived the ideal of total integration of the arts into life like Bayer. He was a graphic designer, typographer, photographer, painter, environmental designer, sculptor and exhibition designer. Bayer entered the Bauhaus in 1921 and was greatly influenced by Kandinsky, Moholy-Nagy and El Lissitzky. He left the Bauhaus in 1923, but returned in 1925 to become a master in the school.
