        EPITHALAMION AND AMORETTI

      London: John & E. Bumpus, Ltd, 1903. No. 6 OF 14 LARGE PAPER COPIES ON VELLUM. (Another 250 regular copies were issued on paper.) n. Hardcover. 254 x 159 mm (10 x 6 1/4"). 1 p.l. (limitations page), 86 pp. No. 6 OF 14 LARGE PAPER COPIES ON VELLUM. (Another 250 regular copies were issued on paper.). LOVELY RED CRUSHED MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in), upper cover with frame and central panel bounded by triple fillets, frame with interlacing floral vines, central panel filled with curling branches of roses emanating from a central stem, rectangular panels at head and foot lettered with title and author, lower cover with smaller version of central panel; raised bands, spine compartments tooled vertically with continuous rose vine, turn-ins with four gilt rules, rose leaf cornerpieces on a stippled background, vellum endleaves, top edge gilt (expertly rebacked, reusing the original backstrip). In a felt-lined marbled slipcase with matching red morocco lip. With foliated initials, engraved head- and tailpieces, title page vignette, and frontispiece portrait of the author. With carbon copy of typewritten note on Riviere & Son letterhead stating "This book formed a portion of our exhibit at 'The Festival of Empire Exhibition', 1911, for which we gained the 'Grand Prix'." The note SIGNED BY ROBERT RIVIERE at the bottom. Spine a little darkened, a hint of rubbing to spine ends, but AN EXCEEDINGLY PRETTY BOOK, the glittering binding lustrous and without the bowing so often seen on vellum copies, and an immaculate copy internally. This is the special limited Large Paper vellum printing of Spenser's famous courtship sonnets and celebratory nuptial hymn, in a prize-winning binding by the great English bindery Riviere & Son, which was producing some of its very best work at the time our binding was executed. The poems here were inspired by Spenser's courtship of and 1594 marriage to his second wife, Elizabeth Boyle. Day calls "Amoretti" "a unique sonnet sequence in Renaissance England," and he is unreserved in his praise for "Epithalamion," calling it "the most beautiful nuptial poem in English, and perhaps in any language.".

        [Christ Trampling on Satan]

      [London, 1903. Engraving, by Thomas Butts, after Blake. Laid paper. First and only state. Hand written in ink, upper right corner "Cent quatre vingt septieme 187" A determined Christ walks over the vanquished Satan This fascinating engraving, after a Blake drawing, depicts a muscular and single-minded Christ with a bow in one hand and arrow in the other walking on the beard and chest of Satan, who despite his lifeless eyes reaches for Christ's bow. Blake's Christ is more reminiscent of Hercules or Gilgamesh than the Christ known to us through church iconography and his Satan reminds us more of Zeus than Christianity's Devil. Archibald Russell in The Engravings of William Blake (Houghton Mifflin, 1912) that this image illustrates a passage in Paradise Lost (Bk.VI, 763), but was an allegory for the triumph of imagination or creativity over reason. Thomas Butts, senior (1757-1845) and junior (1788-1862), were both given drawing and engraving lessons by Blake starting in March 1806. They produced a number of plates from Blake's designs although his level of direct involvement can only be estimated. The present plate was sold by the Butts' descendants at Sotheby's, lot 20, 24 June, 1903. The plate was acquired shortly after the auction by Edward J. Shaw of Walsall. He apparently had printed a number of impressions by December 1903. These are the earliest recorded impressions of this plate (other than a single impression sold with the plate at the auction). The plate remained in Shaw's possession until 1925 when it was sold at Sotheby's (29 July, lot lot158) to Mansfield. The New York dealers E.Weyhe, bought a number of impressions (and possibly the plate itself) as they still had multiple copies for sale as late as 1965. Essick records 18 copies of this print, on various paper types, but no order of precedence is given, and he had not seen any `proof' impressions. Essick The Separate Plates of William Blake.

        THE PARABLES FROM THE GOSPELS. WITH TEN ORIGINAL WOODCUTS DESIGNED AND ENGRAVED ON WOOD BY RICKETTS

      [London: Vale Press], 1903. ONE OF 300 COPIES ON PAPER. (There were also 10 on vellum.) n. Hardcover. 213 x 159 mm (8 3/8 x 6 1/4"). lxxv, [i] pp. (pagination includes plates). ONE OF 300 COPIES ON PAPER. (There were also 10 on vellum.). VERY HANDSOME CONTEMPORARY HONEY BROWN MOROCCO, GILT AND INLAID IN THE ARTS AND CRAFTS STYLE, BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE (stamp-signed with their emblem on rear turn-in), each cover with sinuous grapevine frame incorporating gilt tendrils and grape clusters as well as 26 inlaid leaves of dark brown morocco, upper cover with multiple gilt rules inside the frame forming a Celtic cross, its circular element adorned with gilt leaves and inlaid green morocco dots; raised bands, gilt-ruled compartments, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, green and brown stenciled endpapers, all edges gilt. In an excellent morocco-trimmed chemise and slipcase by Devauchelle of Paris. WITH 10 DISTINCTIVE WOODCUTS BY RICKETTS. Tomkinson 40. Slight rubbing to rear joint and to raised bands, just the faintest hint of browning at the edges of leaves, otherwise a very fine copy, the text showing virtually no signs of use, and the lustrous binding with no significant wear. This is a wonderful representation of the Arts and Crafts movement, combining a meticulously executed binding and woodcuts showing Ricketts at the top of his craft. The Vale Press books, which Cave says were "far truer to the spirit of fifteenth-century printing than Kelmscott work," included nearly 50 titles issued during the eight-year life of the press, and both the impressive output and the press' considerable artistic success can be attributed to the fact that Charles Ricketts, who was remarkably skilled as a designer, painter, and illustrator, was in control of every facet of the operation. The present work contains the largest number of illustrations in any Vale Press book, and the 10 woodcuts are generally thought to represent the best of Ricketts' work as a book illustrator. In his "Self Portrait," Ricketts characterized these cuts as "the high water-mark in [his] work, as far as design goes." Similarly, Maureen Watry in her book "Charles Ricketts, a Publisher in Earnest," suggests that our artist "is at his best in those illustrations in which he presents dramatic episodes in stylised and decorative manner," and, as evidence, she uses Ricketts's illustration of "The Parable of the Rich Man" from this edition. In its panelling design, its remarkable lightness of gilt line, and even in the color of the leather, the binding here is reminiscent of the work of Douglas Cockerell, from whom Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe learned their craft as students and employees, before moving on to establish what became the most successful and prominent English bindery of the 20th century. Sangorski and Sutcliffe went out on their own in 1901, and it is likely that the present volume was bound within a few years of that date, probably shortly after its publication. The binding is of historical significance particularly as it suggests that the Sangorski firm was still producing derivative work, before it found the footing to head in its own artistic direction. The feathery variations of color within the central panels here appear to be naturally occurring or else a (slightly unusual) creative expression of the binder, rather than any kind of uninvited discoloration.

        The Principle Navigations [together with] Purchas His Pilgrimes

      Glasgow: James MacLehose and Sons,, 1903&#150;07. 32 volumes, octavo (218 × 140 mm). Mid 20th-century brown half morocco, spine compartments in black and gilt, brown cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Frontispieces, maps, and plates throughout. Spines a little faded, occasional light spotting to edges and contents. An excellent set. A handsomely bound set of voyages and travels. Hakluyt took such patriotic pride in his countrymen&#39;s exploits in the fields of travel and adventure that he devoted his life to preserving the records of all English voyages. His Voyages was the greatest assemblage of travel accounts and navigations to all parts of the world collected up to its time, and a primary source for early New World exploration. At Hakluyt&#39;s death his manuscripts fell into the hands of Purchas, who added to them many more voyages and travels. He followed the general plan of Hakluyt, but frequently put the accounts into his own words. A very attractive set divided into 12 volumes of Haklyut and 20 of Purchas.
