        The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico Vicentino Degli Arrighi

      1926. ARRIGHI, Ludovico Degli. The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico Vicentino Degli Arrighi., surnamed Vicentino. 8vo., bound in original quarter-vellum over decorated red boards, in a handsome felt-lined silk chemise and slipcase. Paris: [Officina Bodoni for and with] Frederic Warde, 1926. |~||~||~||~||~| One of 300 copies. Facsimiles of the original writing books first printed in Rome (1522 & 1523). With an introduction by Stanley Morison. Warde was responsible for the composition of this volume, Mardersteig for the printing only. This volume reproduces Arrighi's La Operina on pages 1-32, with italic types cut into woodblocks by the artist Ugo da Carpi. Ludovico Arrighi (1475-1527), bookseller, publisher, papal scribe, printer and type designer in Renaissance Rome, was the "scriptor brevium" in the Papal Chancery, which led Arrighi to create an influential pamphlet on handwriting in 1522 called La Operina, demonstrating an italic typescript in the chancery style. Arrighi's italic printing types, less sloped and more formal than the earlier Aldine, were particularly elegant and not only influenced the italics of sixteenth-century type designers but were revived by a number of significant twentieth-century type designers and printers as well. Very fine copy. Mardersteig 15. Barr 14.

        First Steps to Rackets

      London: Mills & Boon. (1926). First. First edition. Octavo. 136, 16 ads pp., plates. Green cloth. A slight bump on the front board, very good or better without dustwrapper. Inscribed by one of the co-authors: "To George Standing in grateful remembrance of the pleasure of meeting. Clarence N. Bruce. Jan. 1928." Not to be confused with either tennis or squash, rackets or racquets is an indoor racquet sport played in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. The sport is infrequently called "hard rackets," possibly to distinguish it from the related sport of squash (formerly called "squash rackets"). Both authors were rackets champions and the recipient, George Standing, was the head professional at the New York Racket and Tennis Club, and was runner-up for the World Championship in 1897. .

        Chad Gadya Had Gadya

      Bnei Betzalel, Jerusalem, Eretz Israel 1926 - 10 color illustrations after Raban with free verse rendering of the traditional Passover song below, musical notes on last leaves. followed by publisher's ad. Perhaps the finest of Raban's illustrated works. Raban was a major Jewish artist born in Poland. He studied in Munich and Brussels and was heavily influenced by the jugendstil (art nouveau) movement of that era. He moved to Israel in 1912 and joined Boris Schatz's Bezalel School. 8vo, original color-pictorial wrappers, Ze'ev Raban (born Wolf Rawicki, 1890-1970), studied sculpture and the decorative arts in Europe, first in his hometown and later in Munich, Paris, and Brussels. At the Kunstgewerbechule in Munich, Raban learned design, including object and jewelry design, in Paris, he specialized in sculpture; and in Brussels, he was influenced by Symbolism and earned his living through architectural decoration projects. Raban reached Eretz-Israel in 1912 and joined the staff of the Bezalel School in Jerusalem, at the invitation of its director, Boris Schatz. In 1914, he was appointed director of the brass and copper repousse department. Raban viewed himself as a pioneer in the renewal of Hebrew art in Eretz-Israel and was actively involved in the forming of the ethos of the growing nation. He encouraged tourism through his poster art, illustrated Hebrew primers, and endowed decorative and functional objects with Jewish/Hebrew content. Raban underwent a metamorphosis in art from the western art of his studies to an incorporation of Eastern techniques and motifs, and the use of indigent flora and fauna. An important stage in that transformation was the adoption of the Yemenite as a model for the Biblical figure. Raban's acquaintance had been with a European Symbolism that was international, equivocal, and often personal. But in Erez Israel, Raban created a "Hebrew Symbolism" that was national and carried a clear message, although he still preferred the ideal and the archetypal over realistic. He developed a visual lexicon of motifs based on Jewish designs and topics, and to these he added his own Hebrew calligraphic script and other decorative elements, to form what was to become the "Bezalel style".
