        Codex Sinaiticus Petropolitanus Et Friderico-Augustanus Lipsiensis: The Old Testament Only

      The Clarendon Press, Oxford 1922 - Elephant Folio. xxiii(i) (Text), 245 leaves printed on both sides, blank, 2 foldout index leaves. 34 loose signatures housed in a portfolio box with brown cloth-tape edges over paper-covered boards and printed label on front cover. Old Testament only.This monumental facsimile edition provides a lifelike view of the original pages of the Codex Sinaiticus. The Codex was handwritten in Greek by 4th-century scribes, only 300 years after the time of the New Testament, making it one of the earliest and most reliable witnesses to the biblical text. It contained the Old and New Testaments in Greek, the text adopted by early Greek-speaking Christians. The Codex was preserved for centuries at the monastery of St. Catherine's, Mount Sinai, until Constantin von Tischendorf discovered the manuscript and drew worldwide attention and notoriety to it in 1844. In the years following, its pages were divided and dispersed. Each page contains four columns of text (except the OT poetic books, which have only two columns), the only biblical manuscript to use this format. Written on fine vellum, 390 leaves were discovered by Tischendorf, though it originally must have contained more than 730. Most of the missing leaves are from the OT, with the majority of Genesis - 1 Chronicles now missing. A substantial portion of 1 Chronicles curiously appears in the middle of Esdras B (= Hebrew Ezra-Nehemiah), probably as a result of a misplaced quire in the exemplar. The remaining historical books (in the LXX order) are intact, concluding with 1 and 4 Maccabees. The major and minor prophets follow, with a lacuna of probably 56 leaves from the middle of Lamentations to the end of Micah, which presumably followed Hosea and Amos. The rest of the minor prophets are followed by the usual poetical and wisdom books, concluding with Job. The text of the OT reflects the Old Greek (where it has been determined), though it is inferior to Vaticanus in most books. The original provenance of the codex is debatable, but the two most likely contenders seem to be Egypt and Caesarea. It was certainly present in the library at Caesarea sometime between the fifth and seventh centuries, where it was corrected at one point against a manuscript that had been corrected against the original Hexapla of Origen by the martyr Pamphilius.Some wear along edges of box, small chips, creasing of tape and small library sticker and handwritten title on spine. Light smudging of label on front, small scuff on back cover of box. Exlibris of A. Pascalis on inside front cover of box. Blank page of fist text signature age toned and the last thirteen signatures bumped at upper right corner. Box in overall good+, interior in very good to near fine condition. "Kirsopp Lake (1872-1946) was a British biblical and patristic scholar and textual critic. He was born in Southampton, England, and died in South Pasadena, California. He was ordained into the Church of England and was curate of St. Mary the Virgin (Oxford, England) from 1897 to 1904, and was then a professor of early Christian literature at the University of Leiden until 1913. After 1914 he was a professor of early Christian literature at Harvard University. In 1919 he was appointed to a Harvard chair as Winn Professor of Ecclesiastical History. He retired from Harvard in 1938. Lake was interested in archaeology and participated in many expeditions to the Near East. He visited Mount Sinai, Mount Athos, Turkey and Iraq. His excavations were cut short by World War II. In the early twentieth century, Lake discovered a textual family of New Testament manuscripts known as Family 1 (also known as Lake group). He also examined textual family Family II, and compared its text with text Codex Alexandrinus. Lake married his second wife, Silva New in 1932. Born in 1898, she was an accomplished scholar in her own right, and was a professor of Classics at Bryn Mawr College." (Harvard University Library) He is probably best known for the massive five-volume work T [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        50 HANDZEICHNUNGEN. MIT EINEM VORWORT VON HERMANN BAHR.

      Leipzig and Vienna: Thyrsos-Verlag, 1922. Beautifully preserved portfolio of fifty delicate lithographs printed from line drawings by Gustav Klimt with a foreword by the Austrian writer, Hermann Bahr. Klimt is best known for his richly ornamental romantic oil paintings magnificently adorned with warm colours heightened by gilt detailing, however, these lithographs reveal him as a master of spare and purposeful design. Stripped of embellishment, the lithographs have a haunting, sometimes necrotic quality, both unsettling and alluring. Many are erotic in nature, reinforcing an age-old confluence of death and sexual desire. Throughout Klimt remains a confident apostle of his disquieting yet undeniably unique style, blending purposeful anatomical configuration with an intangible metaphysical agenda. Original folding portfolio case, 8 page letterpress introduction incorporating title-page and limitation leaf, loose plates; decorative front board printed in gilt, vellum backstrip, excellent condition.

Spine rolled and sunned, front joint and rear inner hinge skilfully repaired, front board slightly marked, with small bump to top edge, commensurate section of rubbing to rear board, front free endpaper browned, half-title slightly marked. A very good copy. Engraved frontispiece, 16 engraved maps and plans to the text, double-page genealogical table, 2 folding maps, coloured folding map in pocket on rear pastedown. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by Forster "AJB, from the author" on the front free endpaper, and with the ownership inscription of the recipient, A. J. Butler, on the front board. This is Oxford historian Alfred Joshua Butler (1850–1936), whose work The Arab Conquest of Egypt (1902) Forster cites as his main source for the period, and describes it as "a monograph of the highest merit, brilliantly written, and practically reconstructing the episode" (p. iii). He also acknowledges Butler's Ancient Coptic Churches (1884) as his source for the passage on the monasteries of Natrun, and reproduces two of his plans at pages 202 and 203. Butler appears to have then used the guide for his own purposes, the section on the Greco-Roman Museum (pp. 107–21), bearing his inked underlinings and marginal summaries of the exhibits described by Forster. Copies of the first edition are rare, as most of the print run was destroyed by fire. Kirkpatrick A8a. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A Wonder Book

      London, New York, & Toronto: Hodder and Stoughton Ltd, 1922 A very good copy in the original red decorative cloth binding with 16 tipped-in colour plates and 8 tinted full page plates by Arthur Rackham. With fair to good dust wrapper. Undated but 1922 1st edition in this form. The wrapper has a pasted picture and titles to the front cover. There is loss to the top of the spine and edge nibbling at the bottom of the spine and the flap joints and along the top edge of the back cover. It has had some repair. The flaps are quite small but there is no indication that they have been trimmed. The jacket is in a removable protective wrap. The binding has blind stamped titles and a gilt design to the front board and gilt titles to the spine. It is very bright and clean with just slight pulling and corner wear. Top page edges green. The decorative endpapers are clean with a small signature dated December 1926 to the top of the front pastedown. The contents, with tissue-guarded frontispiece, decorative title page and text with numerous designs as well as the tipped-in and tinted plates, is in very good clean condition. The tissue guard to the frontispiece is beginning to detach at the top and there is slight spotting to the title page and rear endpapers. The stitching is visible at p80 but the book is sound. There is some spotting to the foredge. A very good copy in rare wrapper.

      1922. 1 S. (42 Zeilen). 8vo. Auf Trägerkarton montiert. "Unter einem Künstler verstehen sie einen, | der sich nicht abgibt mit solchen Schweinen | und nichts zu tun hat mit allen den Dingen, | die ihnen im Handumdrehn gelingen, | um sich dafür mit Schaffen und Schreiben | und hauptsächlich ihnen die Zeit zu vertreiben; | und da er doch von Beruf ein Träumer | und deshalb auch Schuldterminversäumer, | der das tut, wozu er nicht ist verpflichtet, | und das andere lieber läßt unverrichtet, | so kann er zwar leichter als sie sich entflammen, | sonst aber geht es ihm gar nicht zusammen. | Und teilten die Bürger nicht besser sichs ein, | ja dann könnten sie auch solche Künstler sein! [...]". - Etwas fleckig und mit einigen eh. Korrekturen. Abgedruckt in: Worte in Versen VI, 1922.
