1901. Condition: Acceptable. These books are over one hundred years old, so the concept of "acceptable" will vary. Much of the printing on the spine is worn away, as you can see in the photographs. The pages are intact but require delicate handling. I would suggest the use of gloves when handling these books. I who write these lines am Ed Yetman, III. Many people around the world know me through my international correspondence chess play and the publication of my magazine, Yetman Brothers' Descriptive Chess Magazine. I also hold an advanced degree in history, literature and other arts. I am not just a player; I am a bookseller and bibliophile of forty years' experience. I have read thousands of chess books and done years of research, and I have heard of and seen books like Cook's Synopsis of the Openings and Freeborough and Ranken's Chess Openings Ancient and Modern. I have never heard of this series, Mordechai Morgan's The Chess Digest. I have never seen it for sale. There are facsimiles on the internet, but not the original. When I found it packed away in the Trojan Hoard of Allan Troy, it came as a complete surprise to me. Mr. Morgan painstakingly assembled all the known analysis of his day, from all tournaments and magazines published between 1850 and 1902. It was the state-of-the-art analysis of the opening at the time. Many diagrams, most unusual for the time. The notation is fractional (see photographs above) using Miron Hazeltine's reformed Descriptive notation: it uses the hyphen instead of the word "to"; the Knight symbol is "Kt"; when a piece moves along the firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frederick Baron Corvo
London: Grant Richards. First edition. The Borgias, a European Papal family of Italian and Spanish origin who became prominent during the Renaissance. The Borgias were patrons of the arts, and their support allowed many artists of the Renaissance to realise their potential. The most brilliant personalities of this era regularly visited their court.

His heavily autobiographical fictions are milestones in the history of life-writing, and literary historians have begun to acknowledge these works as among the precursors of modernism. With a bookplate to front free endpaper, previously owned by Philip Sassoon, a British politician, art collector and social host, entertaining many celebrity guests at his homes, Port Lympne, Kent, and Trent Park, Hertfordshire, England. Sassoon was a member of the prominent Sassoon family and Rothschild family. He was a cousin of the war poet Siegfried Sassoon. With a second bookplate to front pastedown 'Aline Sassoon'.

Lyongr¸n, Arnold
Berlin & Coln (Rhein): Kanter & Mohr, 1901. First edition. First edition. Elephant folio (20 x 14 inches). Original teal blue cloth boards with stunning Nouveau pictorial covers by Arnold Lyongr¸n, stamped in white housing the loose sheets, as issued. Decorative title page and forward by Lyongr¸n, printed in lavender. With 24 superb color-tinted plates, printed in blue, green, and browns, with border rule and adjacent decorative lettering in orange. Photolithography and typography by C. G. Roeder, Leipzig. This very scarce first edition was followed in 1903 by a similar volume with 48 plates, but this original edition with 24 color-tinted monochromatic plates is very much the desired edition. The images blend various motifs of the human form with plants and animals, vases, fish bowls, bird cages, stained glass, etc., all in classic Jugendstil Art Nouveau style. Lyongr¸n (1871-1935) was inspired by the Art Nouveau style of decorative arts while traveling in France as a young artist under the tutelage of Jules Joseph Lefebvre and Tony Robert-Fleury. He published a number of patterns for decorative arts and crafts, among them Decorative Motifs from the Natural World (1899) and New Ideas for Decorative Art (1901). Corners bumped, slight blemish to small portion upper cover, very slight chipping to extremities of a few leaves, on the whole a very well preserved set, with all the plates in excellent condition and registration.

ALMA-TADEMA, SIR LAWRENCE
UNDER THE ROOF OF BLUE IONIAN WEATHER Heliogravure uit 1901 uitgegeven door Arthur Tooth & Sons. naar het gelijknamige schilderij (Opus CCCLXIII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 35 x 82,5 cm. Aristocratische meisjes en hun mannelijke begeleider luisteren naar een fluitist. Inspiratie voor de titel van het werk vond Alma-Tadema in een brief van de beroemde Engelse dichter Percy Bysshe Shelley: "We watched the ocean and sky together, under the roof of blue Italian weather". Shelley (1792 - 1822) gold als idool voor de groep Victoriaanse en Pre-Raphaëlitische kunstenaars. Een kunstrecensent zei na het gereedkomen van het schilderij: "Its colour is so equisite and dainty; its composition and arrangement so consummately learned, whether as to perspective, linear and aerial, tone and atmosphere, and reflected lights; and the drawings of the figures and the painting of the flesh so admirable that this picture may be pronounced in some qualities superior to, or more attractive than anything the master has produced before."

Homerus (Homer); William Morris, trans.
Chiswick Press; pub. by Longmans, Green and Co. of London, New York & Bombay, 1901. Gorgeously crafted Chiswick Press production: This English verse rendition of the Greek classic comes from the pen and imagination of William Morris (1834-96), a member of the Pre-Raphaelite movement that breathed new beauty into the Greek aesthetic in the 19th century. The text was first printed in 1887 after his verse translation of Vergil's Aeneid in 1876. Elegantly printed in red and black with sizable margins on creamy paper using the iconic Golden type designed by William Morris for the Kelmscott Press, this copy is => uncut and mostly unopened save two sections where Odysseus interacts with Penelope and later kills her other suitors.

One volume with engraved map frontispiece. Printed in red and black. Additional paper title label tipped in at the front of each volume. Walsdorf 84. Some corners a little bumped, spines sunned to a soft gray, most of the cover surfaces faintly discolored from glue used in binding (a few covers slightly soiled), inevitable faint toning and isolated foxing to front free endpapers, otherwise a very fine copy, the original insubstantially made bindings quite sturdy, scarcely worn, and generally pleasing, and VIRTUALLY PRISTINE INTERNALLY (all but a half dozen gatherings having never been opened), with no signs of use. This set is in the Golden type designed and intended for use at the Kelmscott Press, and like other posthumous Morris items from the Chiswick Press, this one shares a direct bloodline in terms of binding, design, and typeface with its famous Hammersmith relatives. Of special importance, the hand-made paper used here is also identical to that used at the Kelmscott Press, being made of the same materials at the same mill using the same moulds. These eight volumes are frequently sold individually, and one cannot easily find complete sets in satisfying condition.
