      1914. The Book of Genesis Beautifully Illustrated by Frederick Cayley RobinsonLimited to 500 Numbered CopiesROBINSON, F. Cayley, illustrator. [RICCARDI PRESS]. The Book of Genesis. Now printed in the authorised version and illustrated after drawings by F. Cayley Robinson. London: Philip Lee Warner publisher to the Medici Society, 1914. Limited to 500 numbered copies (this being no. 473). Quarto (10 5/16 x 7 3/4 in; 262 x 197 mm). xv, [1], 88, [1, colophon], [1, blank], [1, printer's slug], [1, blank] pp. on Riccardi hand-made paper. Ten mounted color plates, including frontispiece, with captioned tissue guards. Engraved title-page printed in blue and black with central ornament. Bound ca. 1925 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in three quarter russet morocco over green cloth boards ruled in blind, spine with five raised bands ruled in blind and lettered in gilt, top edge rough gilt, others uncut. Faint (almost invisible) ink signature dated 1935 on front paste-down. Some very light foxing to borders of plates, otherwise a fine copy."Nearer to the private press style and better known are the books from Philip Lee Warner at the Riccardi Press and Chatto and Windus's Florence Press. They were not strictly private presses, but very near in heritage and example. Types for both were designed by Herbert Horn...and cut by Edward Prince. Both these typefaces have a clear and rational beauty, more economic in use than the Doves type but based upon the same models. Most of the Riccardi books were printed by Jacobi at the Chiswick Press" (Franklin, The Private Presses, p. 160)."Mr Horne also designed a similar type for the Riccardi Press, who se first book appeared in 1909. The title was assumed by the Medici Society for books 'to be finely printed and issued at reasonable prices through the usual trade channels.' The books were primarily vehicles for coloured illustrations reproduced by the Medici Process, by which a large number of single prints had already been made, but the program was soon extended...Composition and presswork were done at the Chiswick Press under the personal supervision of Mr. Charles T. Jacobi until his retirement in 1922. Texts were chiefly of familiar classics and many were illustrated by contemporary artists" (Ransom, p. 164-65).F[rederick] Cayley Robinson (1862-1927) was an English painter, decorator and illustrator. Born in Brentford, Cayley Robinson was the son of a stockbroker and studied at St John's Wood Academy, the Royal Academy Schools and at the Académie Julian in Paris from 1890 to 1892. He was a member of the Society of Painters in Tempera, the New English Art Club and the Royal Watercolour Society. He regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Painters. In 2010 the National Gallery put on an exhibition in the Sunley Room showing six works by Cayley Robinson The exhibition ran from 14 July to 17 October."The look of Cayley Robinson's paintings, so distinctive, so clear, turns out to be much more than a synthesis of past art. It is precisely what allows subversion to hide in plain sight" (Review of National Gallery exhibition, The Guardian, July 24, 2010).Ransom, p. 395, no. 7.

First Edition. A handsome production and the single most important record of the achievements of the firm of McKim, Mead and White, which played a major role in the development of the classical revival in American architecture. Their work applied the principles of Beaux-Arts architecture, the adoption of the classical Greek and Roman stylistic vocabulary as filtered through the Parisian Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and the related City Beautiful movement after 1893 or so. Its vision was to clean up the visual confusion of American cities and imbue them with a sense of order and formality during America's Gilded Age.

        George Patton writes on hunting at Fort Riley; offered with the President's Cup awarded to the 1923 War Department Polo Team and an equestrian trophy issued to his wife Beatrice

      Fort Riley, Kansas, October 13, 1914. 8" x 10.5". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""George S Patton Jr.,"" 2 pages, 8"" x 10.5"" on Mounted Service School letterhead, Fort Riley, Kansas, October 13, 1914 to his mother. With the original transmittal envelope addressed to ""Mrs. Geo. S. Patton San Gabriel California."" Expected mailing folds, else very fine condition. Offered together with a sterling silver pitcher, 7"" x 8.5"" awarding the 1923 ""PRESIDENT'S CUP"" for polo to the War Department team and a sterling sliver trophy, 9.75"" x 4.75"", mounted on a 4.25"" diameter wooden base, an award given to Beatrice Patton for ""HAWAII'S SIXTH TERR[ITORIAL]. FAIR"" of 1927. Both pieces bear some minor blemishes and minor wear. Patton's letter reads in full: ""Dear Mama: For the last two days it has been very cold almost winter. Yesterday we had a drag-hunt and there was one bad ditch in it so before starting I warned people that I would show them the ditch. I did I fell into it and both Wing and I lit on our heads but it did not hurt us a bit and we had a fine hunt. I just sent for three new fox hounds for the pack we simply had to have them and they did not cost very much. I took a rest Sunday by going on a coyote hunt with Dr. Hewett I rode over fifty miles in eleven hours and did not see a coyote but a bunch of young mules tried to kill the hounds and we had a lot of trouble keeping them off. Mrs Ayer had been very sick so B[eatrice] has not come yet I expect her about Sunday. Every thing is about as usual love to all Your devoted son George S Patton Jr."" The letter is accompanied by two trophies. The first is a pitcher awarding the ""PRESIDENT'S CUP"" to the War Department Polo team for their June 1923 victory at the Philadelphia Country Club. Patton was an avid polo player and had captained the highly successful 1922 Army squad before heading off for Kansas the following year, where he underwent further training, including the Field Officer's Course at Fort Riley and then the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, graduating 25th in his class in 1924. His success on the polo grounds won him the admiration of his former teammates?"so much so that they apparently presented their 1923 trophy to him as a memento. Patton, like many young cavalry officers, gravitated towards polo in some part due to the sport's inherent danger as well as its role in improving riding skills. In 1931, a cavalry officer was killed in a match at the Meadow Brook Club and over 70 percent of officers who played responded to a survey that they had been injured during play. Patton suffered numerous injuries, including a serious fall in 1936 that resulted in a serious head injury. Reflecting on the season of 1922, Patton wrote in the Cavalry Journal, ?The virtue of polo as a military accomplishment rests on the following: it makes a man think fast while he is excited; it reduces his natural respect for his own safety - that is, makes him bold; it ... teach[es] restraint under exciting circumstances ... nearest to mounted combat; makes riding worthwhile; keeps a man hard ... [and] teach[es] better horse management.? (George S. Patton, Jr., ?Report of Operations of the Army Polo Team of 1922,? Cavalry Journal, April 1923, p.233.) The second trophy dates from Patton's posting in Hawaii from 1925 to 1927. His wife, Beatrice, shared her husband's passion for equestrian sports and this award was given to her during the 1927 annual Territorial Fair for ""Best Saddle Horse Ladies won by BULL RUN RIDDEN BY BEATRICE AYER PATTON.""

The first three sheets of mounted ads show moisture offsetting to some degree. The next 35 pages or so (17 sheets) are virtually free of defects other than very slight waviness. Following these sheets the progression of moisture damage is rapid through the final four sheets of text and the following sheets of ads. Thus, sold as a collection of rare pochoir plates.. Large folio mounted in buckram with pochoir plates, tipped-in advertisements and additional illustrations throughout. Approx. 66 pp., including 22 pp. narrative text. See condition notes.

        The Art Of Spiritual Harmony By Wassily Kandinsky: Translated With An Introduction By M.T.H. Sadler Illustrated

      Constable And Company Limited, London 1914 - Marbled-paper boards and leather spine label stamped in gilt. Near fine, small hint of wear to spine, very clean copy "Wassily Kandinsky's contributions as a theorist were arguably more influential on modern art than any of his paintings. In Concerning the Spiritual in Art, first published in 1914, Kandinsky both promotes and defends a form of art in which painters express themselves in abstract terms independent of the material world around them, much as musicians do. Divided into two parts, About General Aesthetic (including an examination of geometrical forms) and About Painting (a discussion of the psychology of color and the language and form of color), Concerning the Spiritual in Art offers an insight into the mind of one of the most renowned of all abstract painters and a preview of the art that he was to produce in the years to come" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Plus frontispiece with 2 plates of the Citadel Mound, with tissue guard, and 27 plates numbered A. 1-11 and B. 1-16, with multiple images to each, all printed in collotype; a plan of the Acropolis Mound and a sketch plan of Area of Lower City.

Well preserved copy with tight binding and fine plates. ~ First edition. Letterpress and plates printed by Horace Hart at the Oxford University Press. Collotype is one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms.

        IF

      Macmillan and Co. Limited. London. 1914. SECOND SEPARATE ENGLISH EDITION. 8vo. (6.5 x 4.6 inches). Printed cover plus 4pp, as per Richards A269 but with the addition of a portrait frontis of Kipling after an illustration by M. Webb which is printed on stiff dark grey paper. The grey paper covers are then bound in contemporary full burgundy soft suede binding with red, white and blue silk tie to the spine. Front panel lettered in gilt and with blind stamped line ruled border with floral corner pieces. A little minor foxing to the text pages but overall a lovely presentation of this important work. Probably bound at the time of publication by either a bookseller or gift shop to make the thin paper wrappered poem more suitable for presentation as a gift. No copy in this format with this binding and with the portrait has been seen by the author of the most recent and comprehensive Kipling bibliography so this is very likely not a publishers variant. ----- The Poem first appeared in the book Rewards and Fairies (October 1910), this separate publication was issued to capitalise on the huge, and instant, popularity of what has become Kipling's most enduring work of verse. A poll taken by the BBC in the UK in 2005 voted it as Britain's favourite Poem, poling twice as many votes as the number 2 choice, Lord Tennyson's The Lady of Shallot. Originally written in 1895, IF was inspired by the actions of Dr. Leander Starr Jameson, a British Officer whose forces were defeated by the Boers in 1895, but who was portrayed as a victorious hero by the British press, the poem is a powerful masterclass in maintaining the British stiff upper lip. ---- David Alan Richards. Rudyard Kipling. A bibliography. A269. Note. -- 5000 copies printed in July 1914.

Quarto (9 5/8 x 6 3/4 inches; 245 x 172 mm.). 36 pp. Color pictorial title-page and thirty-four full-page color illustrations. Original quarter red cloth over tan cloth boards, front cover with full-color illustration (taken from the color illustration on page 13) pasted-on, pictorial gray end-papers. A spectacular copy. Very scarce, especially in this condition.A charming little book which pictorially follows the exciting day of Daddy Cat and his two kittens. At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled [a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!"

With no text at all in either book, each leaf (printed on rectos only) features a striking, stylized full page hand- colored pochoir illustration depicting children at play or with various toys. Some illustrations are surreal, several are similar to Tom Seidmann Freud in style. The richness of the colors and the angular designs are fantastic. A series of picture books were planned but these were the only two published. It is rare to find such nice copies of both volumes together. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
