Half a dozen gatherings a little browned, occasional mild foxing or small rust spots, additional trivial imperfections, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and very fresh, in a pleasing new binding. This conversation manual by an Italian teacher based in London offers an intriguing glimpse into the lives and concerns of the wealthier classes in 17th century Europe. An early effort to teach language through dialogue, the book is part cultural history, part guide to better health, and it is clear evidence of the importance of the study of Italian in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. The seven dialogues cover subjects from health to travel to servants, with… Read more

A BEAUTIFUL FULL-PAGE ILLUMINATION DEPICTING THE FOUR SEASONS, personified and surrounding a central figure with halo and wings, decorative surroundings incorporating elemental motifs reminiscent of stained glass techniques, embellished with gilt, the whole enclosed by a decorative gilt border. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner. See: Cynthia Norman, "Biography of da Loria (Belle Elkin) Mitchell Norman," reproduced on askART. IN PRISTINE CONDITION. This is a memorable illuminated scene from a versatile artist of the Arts & Crafts movement, a woman lauded by her contemporaries, and with a style highly reminiscent of that of William Blake. Although Norman worked in numerous media, including oils, watercolor, needlework, and murals, she was best known for her exquisite illuminations. The present work is an outstanding example of her fine work in that medium, possibly executed… Read more

Description:
Paris: Desgodets et Gérard [but not an actual imprint], 1901. n. This is at once a lovely and puzzling little manuscript that seems to have been designed for use in a way that never materialized. The text contains prayers used before, during, and after Mass as well as the complete Mass for celebrating a marriage, and since the latter section is preceded by a title with an escutcheon bearing the initials "S" and "L," it seems reasonable to speculate that the work might have been intended as a wedding gift for the bride and groom whose names began with those letters. Whatever the intention, it is entirely possible that this manuscript was not used for its envisioned purpose. Possibly our artist ran out of time to complete this project, as 15 pages are left uncolored, and the text in the Mass skips from the Epistle Prologue to the middle of the Creed, with two blanks in between. Perhaps the missing text was too big for the space left to fill, or perhaps those who commissioned… Read more

Lugduni: Seb. Gryphium, 1556. 175 x 110 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 567, [73] pp. Contemporary calf, blind ruled covers with a central gilt tool and smaller tools in each corner of the panel, raised bands, compartments each with a gilt flower tool. Title page with printer's device, a few inhabited woodcut initials, several in-text diagrams, including the famous world map. A few passages underlined in ink and the occasional marginal note in a contemporary (?) hand.

Description:
Philadelphia: John C. Winston Co, 1903. FIRST EDITION. 206 x 133 mm. (8 1/8 x 5 1/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. PUBLISHER'S RED CLOTH, ELABORATELY GILT, front covers with all-over gilt floral decoration, rectangular inset featuring a gilt sketch of the Taj Mahal, flat spines with same floral design, gilt titling, top edges gilt. In original red cloth dust jackets and (lightly scuffed) matching original slipcase. With one folding color map tipped in at back of volume II, one full-page map, and 50 photographic plates, as called for. Head and tail of spines just slightly bumped, dust jacket spines a little sunned, very faint offsetting from ribbon markers, other trivial imperfections, but AN EXTREMELY FINE SET, the bindings bright and remarkably well preserved, the volumes opening unwillingly and showing no signs of use, the dust jacket and slipcase a fortunate survival that has maintained the set in near pristine condition. This account of India in the early 20th century provides us with an… Read more
