        The Noble and Joyous Book entytled Le Morte d'Arthur

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1913. First edition. Fine. One of 145 unnumbered copies on paper from the total edition of 153 (8 were on vellum). A Fine copy in the original publisher's binding of full brown calf, housed in a slipcase. 29 woodcuts: 2 are full-page, 26 by Charles M. Gere, 3 by Margaret Gere; Initials by Graily Hewitt in red and blue; headings to the chapters and shoulder notes in red. Subiaco type on specially-made Batchelor Ashendene handmade paper with watermark bearing the Knight in Armor. Malory translated and compiled the legends of Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere, Sir Gawain, and the Knights of the Round Table, using numerous French and English sources. His work was first published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer. It proved immensely popular and became the basis for the countless retellings and adaptations throughout the next five centuries (with a few periods of silence, namely 1634 - 1816). We can think of no other collection of stories that have more fully captured the imagination and passion of the English people than the Arthurian legends. "It is the only true English epic; its matter is 'the Matter of England'. The matchless style, the humour, the magnificence, the magic that takes away the breath, combine in a masterpiece of legendary narrative. Each century has produced its own version of the Arthurian tapestry, but Malory's will never be forgotten." (Printing and the Mind of Man, 29). Fine.

The earliest English inscription dates from 1748, but the great majority are from the nineteenth century. The frontispiece is of Sir John D'Oyly's tomb at Kandy. Cemeteries at Colombo, Kalutara, Negombo, Galle, Matara, Tangulla, Hambantota, Jaffna (including a cousin of William Makepeace Thackeray), Mannar, Batticaloa, Trincomalee (including a brother of Jane Austen), Badulla, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Matale, Anuradhapura and other smaller sites are covered, and Lewis added information on a further 461 individuals not recorded in cemeteries, making this an extremely valuable biographical work on the British in Ceylon and more: "Hidden away under its unattractive title is a store-house of information on every aspect of life in early times" (J. R. T., 'Books on Ceylon', The Journal of the Dutch Burgher Union of Ceylon Vol. 34 No. 1 (July 1944), pp. 6-7). Lewis modelled his work on Leopold Ludovici's Lapidarium Zeylanicum (Colombo, 1877). Lewis entered the Ceylon Civil service in 1877 and rose to become a member of the Executive and legislative Councils. A very good copy in the original cloth-backed boards. Front boards a little grubby. Corners worn. Small stamp of National Army Museum on end-papers. A letter from Lewis to Mr Charles Swanzy, who had written correcting some errors in the work, is pasted inside the front cover. Swanzy's ownership inscription is also there. Three typewritten sheets of Errata and Addenda are pasted inside the back cover. First edition Folio, pp.x, 462, frontispiece.

        Original watercolour: "List, ah list to the zephyr in the grove.

      1913. Original pen, ink, watercolour and wash heightened. 270 x 310 mm. Mounted and framed. A fine, beautifully characteristic piece in excellent condition with a couple of faint spots in the yellow sky. An original watercolour for In Powder and Crinoline, signed and dated "Kay Nielsen [19]13" in the lower left corner. "Nielsen shows in his development a fancy so delicate and an outlook so original that no charge of plagiarism can be brought against him. His colour work is delicate and suggestive rather than forceful. Very lovely in its faint blues and greens with tones of peach is the illustration plate 21 [i.e. this painting] where the high folly, the love birds and the blossom testify to the legacy of Japan." (Keith Nicholson, Kay Nielsen, 1975). Nielsen produced 26 watercolours for In Powder and Crinoline to illustrate seven fairy tales chosen by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch. This watercolour illustrates the story, "Felicia or The Pot of Pinks".

        La Céramique dans l’Art Musulman. (TWO VOLUMES).

      Morance, Paris 1913 - 100 mounted colour plates, tipped-in colour illustrations, loose as issued in original pictorial cloth folders with ties, printed in grey, brown and yellow, half-title to vol.1 lightly browned, Uncut, vol.1 with additional printed wrapper inside folder, Preface by Gaston Migeon, very slightly browned but a very good set. Limited Edition of 200 copies of which this copy is number 124. Henri Benjamin Jean-Pierre Rivière (1864- 1951), French artist and designer best known for his creation of a form of shadow play at the Chat Noir cabaret, and for his postimpressionist illustrations of Breton landscapes and the Eiffel Tower. Henri Rivière is remembered as one of the foremost proponents of Japonisme, the French fascination with all things Japanese at the close of the 19th century. Inspired by the possibilities of lithography to render rich, atmospheric images in full colour, he enlisted Eugène Verneau in 1897 to assist him in producing the most ambitious project in colour printmaking Europe had seen to date. Through this collaboration with Verneau, Rivière was able to translate his panoramic Japonist landscapes of Paris and Brittany into over sixty monumental colour lithographs involving the execution and registration of dozens of limestone (often larger than 30 x 40 inches.) This work is a monumental achievement by Rivière on the Islamic ceramics. Creswell 736. [31320] Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Grundwerk in 20 Bänden, der Ergänzungsband 21 sowie die Jahres-Supplementbände 21 bis 24, somit vollständiges Exemplar in 24 Bänden. Es handelt sich hier um die so genannte "Bibliotheksausgabe": Schwarze Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentitel sowie reicher ornamentaler Goldprägung, Rückengestaltung in sehr schönem Jugendstil-Linien dekor (Bogenornamentik) nach einem Entwurf von Otto Eckmann. Einbanddecken mit farblich passenden olivfarbenen Leinenbezügen. Marmorierter Buchschnitt. Grundwerk in 20 Bänden mit 18.600 Seiten und 150.000 Artikeln mit 16.831 Abbildungen, Karten und Plänen im Text sowie auf 1.522 Illustrationstafeln (darunter 180 Farbdrucktafeln, zumeist Chromolithogra phien). Es erschienen noch vier Ergänzungsbände (Bd. 21: Ergänzungen und Nachträge; Bd. 22: Jahressupplemet 1909 - 10; Bd. 23: Jahressupplement 1910 - 11; Bd. 24: Jahressupplement 1911 - 12) sowie drei Kriegsnachträge. Die 6. Auflage gilt als Höhepunkt der Meyer-Werkgeschichte und als größtes und prächtigstes Lexikon seiner Epoche. Es gibt sie in zahlreichen unterschiedlichen Ausgaben, die sich durch eine überaus reizvolle Jugendstil-Ornamentik auszeichnen. Alle Bände in sehr gutem Zustand. Buchrücken kaum berieben, Ecken kaum bestoßen; auch Ergänzungsbände bei diesem Exemplar besonders gut erhalten. Deckel überwiegend sehr sauber, allenfalls wenige Deckel vereinzelt fingerfleckig, ein Deckel mit kleiner Schramme. Der sehr gute äußere Ausdruck findet sich auch im Inneren wieder: Seiten frisch und absolut fleckenfrei; die Tafel Meeresfauna (wie sehr häufig) teilweise anhaftend, sonst bei der Durchsicht keine Anhaftungen festgestellt bzw. bestehende Anhaftungen gelöst. Zahlreiche noch beiliegende Original-Verlagsprospekte dokumentieren, daß die Bände sehr wenig benutzt wurden. Ferner mehrere zusätzliche Tafeln beiliegend: Eine doppelseitige Schlesien-Karte, eine Chromolithographie "Birnen und Äpfel" sowie die Tafel "Ägyptische Malerei"; diese Tafeln entstammen der 7. Meyer-Auflage und wurden vom Vorbesitzer augenscheinlich zum Vergleich mit den entsprechenden Tafeln der 6. Auflage herangezogen, was insbesondere bei der Schlesien-Karte aufschlußreich ist. In toto sowohl außen als innen auch sehr gutes Exemplar, das insbesondere durch sein originales, harmonisches Erscheinungsbild besticht. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
