KELMSCOTT PRESS). MORRIS, WILLIAM
Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1897 [issued 1898]. ONE OF 300 COPIES ON PAPER (and 10 on vellum). Dated 1897, but issued in February of 1898, this was the last romance written by William Morris and the final book but two to be produced at the Kelmscott Press. Because of Morris' failing health, the last few pages were written down from his dictation by Sydney Cockerell, and the work appeared posthumously, being printed from an uncorrected manuscript and seen through the press by his daughter, May Morris. The map on the front pastedown was the inspiration for Tolkien's vision of Middle Earth cartography. Because of the thickness of the book and the insubstantial materials it is made of, fine copies of this title are especially difficult to find.. 210 x 146 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 2 p.l.

BEARDSLEY, Aubrey). DOWSON, Ernest
Londen, Leonard Smithers, 1897. Original gilt green cloth with designs by Beardsley on both sides. (2), 46 p. Illustrated with a frontispice, two vignettes and an initial by Aubrey Beardsley. Printed in 330 copies. 1st edition. A few minuscule stains, but the binding is fine and the gold is shimmering brightly.l 'One of the masterpieces of book design in the Nineties' according to James G. Nelson in his Smithers book. An apogee in the work of these geniuses, both on the threshold of death (Beardsley 1872-1898, Dowson 1867-1900), forged to a perfect synthesis by publisher Leonard Smithers (1861-1907).

With the publisher's presentation blind stamp to the half title and following three leaves. In 1892 Bell (1868-1926) set out on what proved to be a formative journey to Tehran, where her uncle Sir Frank Lascelles was British minister. "Having studied Persian with the oriental scholar Sandford Arthur Strong during the winter prior to her journey, she embarked on a verse translation of the mystical poet Hafiz … to which she brought an insightful interpretation of the East's cultural depth and of the underlying ambiguities of Hafiz's poems. Her translation received a favourable critical reception on its publication and was long regarded as the best free- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Quer-4, 38 Lichtdruck-Taf. (compl.), Goldgeprägte OLwd.-Mappe mit losen Taf., Etwas berieben, Tafeln sauber Das Landesmuseum wurde 1897 in einem neu erbauten, burgähnlichen Gebäude von Gustav Gull nordwestlich der Haupthalle des Hauptbahnhofs beim heutigen Platzspitz-Park in Zürich eröffnet. Zürich hatte mit dem Projekt Märchenschloss einen Wettbewerb gegen andere Schweizer Städte gewonnen. Das Gebäude kombiniert verschiedenste Architekturstile und ist daher seit seiner Entstehung umstritten. Die Eidgenössischen Kommission für Denkmalpflege äusserte sich jedoch in einem Gutachten vom 27. November 1997 mit folgenden Worten: "Mit dem Landesmuseum als Einzelbau reagiert Gustav Gull architektonisch genau auf die gestellte Aufgabe. Die gewählte Form einer "mittelalterlichen Schlossanlage" reflektiert Geschichte und macht den Komplex leicht als Museumsbau erkennbar.

Sergeant, Adeline
London F.V. White 1897 - 8vo. 232pp. + 16pp. ads. Publisher's olive green cloth titled and decorated in gilt and maroon to spine and front board.Minor edgewear and scuffing, A little bumping to spine ends, gilt bright, bump to bottom front corner of rear board; strong and handsome, a very good copy. Internally clean, a slip of paper, presumably bearing an ownership, has been snipped from the tope edge of the front flyleaf, which is annoying, and otherwise the book's only significant defect. A collection of short stories, all rather gracefully written, some with a criminous edge, some dealing with sinister family secrets, from a woman who wrote upwards of 90 novels, travelled the world and was something of a forgotten Victorian fictional mover and shaker. There's a gentle facility to several of the tales which makes them very pleasing to read. Regardless of my personal predilections, it's a nice copy of a seldom seen collection. nyc17 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

MORRIS,William. Edited by Sydney C. Cockerell.:
Hammersmith, Kelmscott Press, 1897. Thirty-five reproductions from printed books in the library of William Morris, 1897. 4to, approximately 300 x 215 mm, 12 x 8½ inches, pages: xi, 23 leaves illustrating woodcuts with some text, printed and numbered on rectos only, then pages 24-36 and last leaf with colophon, Kelmscott monogram, some pages have a pale watermark in the inner margin, but it is difficult to make out the design. Printed in red and black in Golden type, bound in plain dark blue cloth of the period, cut out printed paper title mounted on upper cover, edges untrimmed. Binding a little rubbed and scratched with a few small indentations to upper cover, head of spine bumped, first page of the woodcuts with shallow crease to lower corner, a few other light creases to margins of pages with woodcuts, not affecting images, edges of pages have slight rippling, pale age-browning to endpapers, otherwise a clean crisp copy. NOT IN THE ORIGINAL KELMSCOTT BINDING. Of these thirty-five reproductions twenty-nine were all that were done of a series chosen by Mr. Morris to illustrate a catalogue of his library, and the other six were prepared by him for an article in the 4th number of Bibliographica, part of which is reprinted as an introduction to the book. The process blocks (with one exception) were made by Walker & Boutall, and are of the same size as the original cuts.

Kipling, Rudyard; Power, Anastasia (bookbinder)
Barnhard Tauchnitz, Leipzig. 256pp. 12mo (4 3/4" x 6 1/2"). A book of poetry by Kipling, first published 1896. FINE BINDING by English book binder ANASTASIA POWER, 1899, with her gilt monogram on inside back cover turn-in. Binding in green-dyed morocco with extensive brown inclusions, as was possible with the Arts and Crafts bookbinders' use of vegetable dyes as a "traditional craft" element; woad and indigo, for instance, were once used extensively in medieval England. The highly attractive front cover decoration consists of a single fillet rectangle enclosing a border of large tudor roses, interspersed with five-leaved sprigs and dots, all gilt. Towards the center cover, the design continues with a double gilt fillet rectangle intersected by a double fillet diamond, the book title being gilt in the shape of a smaller diamond within, whose points consist of sets of three gilt dots. Anastasia Power has used small circles of laid-on orange leather within the inner gilt rectangular border, as well as smaller gilt dots as decoration along the outer diamond. Spine is in six raised compartments, with gilt decoration of a square of three lobed leaves and stems centering a small diamond with additional gilt dot decoration. Title is gilt in second compartment from top and the date 1897 appears at the foot. The rear board is almost identical in design to the front, save for the deletion of the laid-on orange dots, and a central design of a tudor rose. In all, it is a well- balanced and charming design, showing an increase in sophistication from her work of an earlier date. Turn-ins … [Click Below for Full Description]

Burckhard, Max, Theaterdirektor und Schriftsteller (1854-1912).
Wien, 28. III. 1897. - 1 S. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Zu meinem aufrichtigen Bedauern ist es mir nicht möglich Ihnen verehrter Herr Doktor in der angedeuteten Richtung behilflich zu sein, da das Burgtheater keine Stipendien etc. zur Verfügung hat und ich keinerlei persönliche und gesellschaftliche Beziehungen pflege, die es mir ermöglichen würden, einen Einfluß bei maßgebenden Persönlichkeiten zu üben [.]". - Max Burckhard war Dozent für Privatrecht in Wien und Min.-Vizesekretär im Unterrichtsministerium. Von 1890 bis 1898 als Direktor des Wiener Burgtheaters tätig, bemühte er sich "besonders um die Pflege des modernen Dramas, führte Ibsen, Hauptmann, Schnitzler, Hofmannsthal, aber auch Raimund, Anzengruber und volkstümliche Klassiker auf. Er engagierte u. a. F. Mitterwurzer, A. Sandrock, L. Medelsky, O. Treßler, J. Kainz" (ÖBL I, 127). Nach seiner Entlassung wurde Burckhard zum Hofrat am Verwaltungsgerichtshof ernannt. In der Folge wirkte er als Theaterkritiker und schrieb Romane, Novellen und Volksstücke ("Im Paradies", 1907). - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr. kalligr. Briefkopf der "k. k. Hofburgtheater-Direction".
