        LE MORTE DARTHUR

      London: [Printed at the Riccardi Press for] Philip Lee Warner, Publisher to the Medici Society, 1910. No. 426 OF 500 COPIES on paper (and 12 on vellum, 10 for sale) n. Hardcover. Of Considerable Pictorial Interest in its Illustration, Binding, and Provenance. 270 x 210 mm (10 5/8 x 8 1/4"). Four volumes. After the text of William Caxton, modernized and edited by Alfred W. Pollard. No. 426 OF 500 COPIES on paper (and 12 on vellum, 10 for sale). EXCELLENT NAVY BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY BIRDSALL (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in), EACH FRONT COVER WITH LARGE AND ELABORATE INLAID PICTORIAL PANEL IN MULTIPLE COLORS based on one of W. Russell Flint's illustrations of scenes from the story, raised bands, spine compartments delicately framed in gilt and with central lozenge of fleurons, gilt titling, turn-ins decoratively gilt, navy silk endleaves, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. With (slightly worn) matching fleece-lined chemises and slipcases. Engraved title pages with lettering by Miss M. Engall and with figures of Launcelot, Arthur, and Guinevere; and 48 color plates by Flint mounted on heavy stock and with captioned tissue guards. Verso of front free endleaf with bookplate of M. C. Gaines (see below); extra original paper labels tipped onto rear flyleaf in each volume. Spines slightly and evenly darkened, but IN VERY FINE CONDITION, quite clean, fresh, and bright internally, and the delightful bindings lustrous and unworn. This is a deluxe privately printed edition of the Arthurian legends, with very pleasing color plates and beautifully executed pictorial bindings by one of the longest operating binderies in England. Written in the 15th century by Thomas Malory (ca. 1405-71) and first printed by Caxton in 1485, the sweeping "Morte d'Arthur" is an English version (despite the title) of earlier chivalric tales in French. It includes the youth of King Arthur, the romance of Guinevere and Launcelot, the quest for the Grail, and the tragedy of Tristram and Iseult. PMM says that this text, the most famous version of all the Arthurian legends, is nothing less than "the matter of England." And Malory's "style, the humor, the magnificence, that magic that takes away the breath, combine in a masterpiece of legendary narrative." Sir William Russell Flint (1880-1969) produced a series of luxury editions for the Riccardi Press of the Medici Society between 1905-24, a series Houfe calls "brilliant." Flint's figures, says Houfe, "are finely modeled and contain elements of a Burne-Jones influence by way of Byam Shaw." The illustrations here are particularly reminiscent of the Pre-Raphaelites and their Medieval subjects. The Birdsall bindery was established in 1792 when William Birdsall acquired the Northampton bindery of John Lacy, and the highly respected family operation continued for more than 150 years, the firm finally closing in 1961. The bindery was at times quite large: in 1899, its staff was reported to number as many as 250 (though some of these employees were involved in manufacturing the company's other products--ladies' handbags, fancy boxes, and stationery). In the foremost group of English provincial binderies, the Birdsall firm consistently executed bindings with considerable skill, and their work was often animated, imaginative, and even experimental in design. Protected in their chemises and slipcases, our bindings look much the same today as they did the day they left the bindery. This set's evocative pictures and graphically intriguing bindings surely held great appeal for former owner M. C. "Max" Gaines (1894-1947), a pioneer in the creation of comic books. As a salesman with Eastern Color Printing, he put together the proto-comic book, "Funnies on Parade," by assembling Sunday comic strips into a booklet form. In 1938, he co-founded All-American Publications, which gave the world the Flash, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman, and later established Educational Comics, which issued comic book versions of stories from history or the Bible.
