Greenaway, Kate
London: George Routledge and Sons; J. M. Dent & Co, 1897. First edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. A complete set of first edition Greenaway Almanacks, 17 volumes in all, with 2 duplicates (1884 & 1886, in imitation white vellum covers) and a copy of her alphabet, all housed in a custom brown gilt leather and blue cloth clam shell slip case. A very good, complete set of Greenaway works which embody the spirit of illustration for children. The Almanacks appeal also lay in each new year's choice of decorations for the seasons. Although the Almanacks popularity was a bit more erratic than her major works, in America they had sales of almost twice the British market; the 1883 was the best selling year, with more than 90,000 sold. The Greenaway craze inspired imitations and spin offs and even a line of clothing based on the clothing shown in her illustrations. Ultimately, Greenaway's works constitute one of the primary influences on children's illustration and children's publishing. The set consists of fourteen 24mo volumes (1887 is oblong 24mo), and two copies of the 12mo Almanack for 1884. No Almanack was published for 1896. Numerous wood engraved text illustrations after Greenaway printed in color by Edmund Evans. In the original bindings, glazed pictorial boards with cloth spines (1883, 1885, 1886, 1887, 1888, 1889, 1890, 1891, 1892, 1893, 1894, and 1895); 1884 in stiff printed pictorial wrappers; and glassine wrapper on imitation morocco (1897). 1893 loose in covers; the glassine wrapper for 1897 slightly chipped at edges, otherwise very good condition.

Please have a really good look at the photographs as these form part of the description and condition report. This rare book is complete with all ten plates present. We have here copied a review of this rare book published in 2012: SPECIAL COLLECTIONSNEUE FORMEN: DEKORATIVE ENTWÜRFE FÜR DIE PRAXIS MAY 3, 2012 Eckmann, Otto. Neue formen: dekorative entwürfe für die praxis. Berlin: Max Spielmeyer Verlag, [1897?]. One of the most beautiful works I encountered when perusing the Martin S. Kermacy Collection was Neue Formen: Dekorative Entwürfe für die Praxis by Otto Eckmann. Otto Eckmann (1865-1902), a German painter and designer, was an influential member of the German branch of Art Nouveau known as Jugendstil. Although Eckmann was classically trained at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Hamburg and Nuremberg, in 1894 he abandoned landscape painting to fully focus his attention on the applied arts. He began working for publications such as Pan and Jugend, the German art magazine from which Jugendstil derives its name, while also designing tapestries, metalwork, logos, and fonts. Two of his fonts, Eckmann-Schrift and Fette Eckmann, are amongst the most prominent of the surviving Jugendstil fonts. Neue Formen was probably published in 1897 during the period when Eckmann was teaching ornamental painting at the Unterrichtsanstalt des Kunstgewerbemuseums Berlin, the training inst … [Click Below for Full Description]

Town of Amherst, Williamsville, New York. The town of Williamsville's census ledgers from the year 1897. Williamsville is a northeastern suburb of Buffalo, located in the western part of New York State in Erie County. Bound in two slim volumes with cardboard binding and marbled boards. Both volumes measure 8.25'' x 13.75'', with the pages being unnumbered. The year 1897 was derived through careful research into the lives of the people in the books, as the year is not actually listed in the ledgers. Includes many prominent families of the time, whose names will still be recognizable to anybody who drives through the Buffalo area: Hopkins, Wehrle, Britting, Bitterman, Crittenden, Dodge, Reist, Strickler, Snyder, Diehl, Grove, Lapp, Spaulding, and Steinbrenner (who may have been related to the late George Steinbrenner, former owner of the New York Yankees). These volumes are an invaluable part of the local history and genealogy records of the Williamsville and greater Buffalo area. The first volume is in very good condition. The boards are well-preserved, though scuffed at the edges. Light shelf wear to the spine and some staining to the black cloth that binds the book. A previous owner's stamp is present on the front pastedown. The binding is starting to crack slightly at the hinges.

Schwarz, Osias L.
1897. Original archive. Softcover. The 26 thick, octavo notebooks are written in a neat European hand, dated consecutively from 1897 through 1914. The first 11 volumes are written in the Czech language. From the middle of Vol. XII on, Schwarz, who is by then living in New York, writes in English. Each notebook has a title-page stating the inclusive dates of the contents and where they were written, with the earlier volumes penned in Focsani (Romania), Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Lausanne, Charlottenburg, and Sniatyn (now Ukraine, then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire). Starting with Vol. VII (April 1902-Oct. 1903), he does his writing in the U.S. His first "American" volume was partially written in NY and St. Louis, the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg", and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ Schwarz's first "American" volume was partially written in New York and St. Louis; the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg"; and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ With one exception, the volumes contain his "Cugetari" (translated in later volumes as "Reflections"), and these "reflections" are consecutively numbered. They vary in length from a few lines to several pages. The "cugetari" in these notebooks start at #177, and by the end of volume XXVI, Schwarz has reached #2,326. The pages in the volumes are also consecutively numbered, from pp.1- 3,524. The "Cugetari" are scholarly thoughts on a variety of topics in philosophy and ethics, e.g. Reflection #1037: "We always try to explain the unusual in terms of the usual and this is-I think-the c … [Click Below for Full Description]
