        THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS

      London: Printed by Bernard Newdigate at the Shakespeare Head Press for the Cresset Press, 1928. No. 102 OF 195 COPIES on paper (and 10 copies on vellum.) n. Hardcover. 368 x 264 mm (14 1/2 x 10 3/8"). Two volumes. No. 102 OF 195 COPIES on paper (and 10 copies on vellum.). Publisher's black stained vellum by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp-signed on rear pastedown), raised bands, gilt titling on upper cover and spine. Two large vignettes and 10 POWERFUL EXPRESSIONISTIC ENGRAVED PLATES, the vignettes and six of the plates by Blair Hughes-Stanton, the other four by Gertrude Hermes. Ransom, p. 6; Hughes-Stanton 4. A hint of rubbing to extremities, one leaf with closed marginal tear, but A FINE SET, quite clean, fresh, and bright inside and out. This is a very well-preserved copy of one of the two or three most handsome and striking products of the Cresset Press, operated between 1927 and 1931 under the direction of Dennis M. Cohen and A. I. Myers. For this majestic "Pilgrim's Progress," as for other publications, they employed for their printers the Shakespeare Head Press, directed at Stratford-on-Avon by Bernard Henry Newdigate. Between the wars Newdigate (1869-1944) was probably the most important name in private press printing. Franklin says that Newdigate's years at the Shakespeare Head Press made it "the most mature and sophisticated of the private presses." The work Newdigate did for distribution by his own as well as by other presses comprised an output that had a profound influence on the standards of book production in Britain. The artists Blair Hughes-Stanton (1902-81) and Gertrude Hermes (1901-83) both studied at the school of Leon Underwood at Hammersmith. They were still in their twenties when they executed these sophisticated expressive woodcuts, and both went on to have long and productive careers as avant-garde artists. In her book on her father's work, Penelope Hughes-Stanton says that the present production "was perhaps the first real test of the two young artists' ability to harness their rampant expressionism and fit it into the restricting reins of a letterpress production." Newdigate pressured them to make their art look more like that of Eric Gill, but they resisted and successfully established their unique personal styles as illustrators. The names of the plates here give a sense of the drama involved: "The Valley of the Shadow of Death," "The River of God," "The Pilgrims Cross the River of Death," "The Slough of Despond," "The Fight between Grim and Great-Heart," and so on.

SCARCE FIRST EDITION AND THIS, FROM THE LIMITED ISSUE WITH A LEAF OF AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT INCLUDED. Beveridge, known also for his great biography of Chief Justice Marshall, spent many years researching the available materials for this work. He made ongoing investigations, questioning what had been published by others and trusting no agent without verifying the work. He made journeys to the Lincoln country, sifted the the many traditions which have grown wherever the family rested, and sought to see for himself how far the neighborhood could influence the man. He was tireless in reading collections of papers still unpublished, in carefully going through files of newspapers, journals and books. The result of his labours presented itself in the form of this fine four volume work on Lincoln in the years leading up to the presidency. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This is the wonderful deluxe version of one of the finest productions of the Cresset Press, our copy from a notable collection renowned for the outstanding condition of its holdings. It is not too much to say that the collection of The Garden Ltd., assembled by Haven O'More with funding from Michael Davis, was the most outstanding library of notable books put together in America in the second half of the 20th century. When it was auctioned by Sotheby's in 1989, the sale brought in $16.2 million. The library included high spots from all periods (the four Shakespeare folios, the first of "Don Quixote," and Blake's "Songs of Innocence and Experience" brought in more than $5 million alone), and the collection was breathtaking in its impeccable condition-as is evidenced by the present set, which was lot 305 in the sale. O'More had acquired it at the sale of noted collector Doris Benz in November of 1984.

        THE VOIAGE AND TRAVAILE OF SIR JOHN MAUNDEVILE, KT

      New York: Printed by the Grabhorn Press, San Francisco, for Random House, 1928. No. 104 OF 150 COPIES n. Hardcover. 368 x 242 mm (14 1/2 x 9 5/8"). 2 p.l., 156 pp., [1] leaf. No. 104 OF 150 COPIES. Publisher's Philippine mahogany boards backed with brown Niger morocco by William Wheeler, raised bands, spine with titling in blind, "TKD" embossed in blank on the portion of the spine leather extending onto the front board. Paragraph marks in red or blue, 32 woodcuts in the text, and 34 large hand-illuminated initials in red, blue, and gold by Valenti Angelo. Heller & Magee 107. One page with faint paint residue in the margin, but A VERY FINE COPY, the binding extremely bright and virtually unworn, and the text showing no signs of use. This attractively bound, printed, and illuminated edition of a famous Medieval travel book is one of the finest productions of the Grabhorn Press, and was recognized in 1928 as one of the 50 Books of the Year by the AIGA design association. The content, type, illustrations, illuminations, and binding come together to create a tribute to early books and at the same time a very pleasing example of modern private press printing. This book marked the first use in America of the Bibel Gotisch type designed and cut by Rudolf Koch, and Heller & Magee observes that the work "was an ideal subject for this type and for the simple medieval illustrations of Valenti Angelo that accompany it" (not to mention the 5,100[!] initials Angelo illuminated by hand in the 150 copies). The Press had intended to offer the work for direct sale, but the entire run was purchased by Bennett Cerf (who saw the proofs on a visit to San Francisco) for issuance under the imprint of Random House. First appearing as an anonymous French manuscript in about 1357, Mandeville's account exists in many forms: there are at least 22 versions known from some 250 surviving manuscripts, and the work was printed at least 20 times in the 15th century. The book continued to appear with regularity in English during the 16th and 17th centuries, but the 1725 printing upon which the Grabhorn edition is based is said by Cox to be the "completest edition up to date," and it is characterized by Lowndes as "the best English edition." Cox tells us that although "long accepted as an authentic and valuable record of travel," the work is now known to be a fabrication, perhaps pieced together by a monk fluent in languages and with access to a large library, but with no experience as a world traveller. Regardless of its origin, it continues to provide fascinating reading as an account of the known world in the 14th century. Authentically quaint, the woodcuts here are based on illustrations in early printed editions. The Grabhorn Press bibliography tells us that of this edition, "a few copies exist with the illustrations hand-colored. These were done for experimental purposes and were not for sale." While the illustrations in this copy are, in fact, hand colored (and done carefully and tastefully), it is possible this enhancement was the work of a later owner. It is also possible that this is a specially colored copy for "TKD," who may have been someone important to the Press, but whose identity is unknown to us.

        The Quantum Postulate and the Recent Development of Atomic Theory.

      [Edinburgh: R & R Clark, April 14, 1928. First edition, extremely rare offprint issue, of this fundamental paper introducing Bohr's statement of his 'complementarity' principle, the basis of what became known as the 'Copenhagen interpretation' of quantum mechanics. "From the epistemological point of view, the discovery of the new type of logical relationship that complementarity represents is a major advance that radically changes our whole view of the role and meaning of science. In contrast with the nineteenth-century ideal of a description of the phenomena from which every reference to their observation would be eliminated, we have the much wider and truer prospect of an account of the phenomena in which due regard is paid to the conditions under which they can actually be observed - thereby securing the full objectivity of the description" (DSB). This is the first copy of this offprint we have seen on the market, and there is no copy on OCLC or COPAC. The paper was published essentially simultaneously in German, Danish, English and French. The concept of complementarity started to develop in Bohr's mind during discussions with Heisenberg in Copenhagen early in 1927, when Heisenberg was preparing for publication his famous paper on the uncertainty principle. In fact, the published version of Heisenberg's paper contains a note added in proof which mentions 'recent investigations by Bohr [that] have led to points of view that permit an essential deepening and refinement of the analysis of the quantum mechanical relationship attempted in this work'. "Bohr presented his ideas on complementarity for the first time at an international congress of physics in Como in the fall of 1927, commemorating the centenary of Volta's death. On this occasion, he stressed that in the quantum world, contrary to the classical world, an observation of a system can never be made without disturbing the system. But how can we then know the state of the system? The quantum postulate would seem to imply that the classical distinction between the observer and the observed was no longer tenable. How then would it be possible to obtain objective knowledge? Bohr's reflections on these and related questions led him to introduce the notion of complementarity as denoting the use of complementary but mutually exclusive viewpoints in the description of nature. Two years later, he defined the complementarity principle as 'a new mode of description... in the sense that any given application of classical concepts precludes the simultaneous use of other classical concepts which in a different connection are equally necessary for the elucidation of phenomena'... The wave description and the particle description are complementary and thus in conflict. But Bohr argued that the physicist is still able to account unambiguously for his experiments, for it is he who chooses what to measure and thereby destroys the possibility of the realization of the conflicting aspect... "The complementarity principle became the cornerstone of what was later referred to as the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Pauli even stated that quantum mechanics might be called 'complementarity theory', in an analogy with 'relativity theory'. And Peierls later claimed that 'when you refer to the Copenhagen interpretation of the mechanics what you really mean is quantum mechanics' ... by the mid-1930s Bohr had been remarkably successful in establishing the Copenhagen view as the dominant philosophy of quantum mechanics." (H. Kragh, Quantum Generations, 1999, pp. 209-210). 4to (266 x 192 mm), original printed bown wrappers (some very light scuffing and one short closed tear to upper margin), pp. [579] 588-590, offprint from Nature, vol. 121, no. 3050, pp. 580- 590, April 14, 1928.

      London: H.F. & G. Witherby,, 1928. A Short Account of the Yezidi Tribes of Kurdistan. With a Commentary by Sir Richard Carnac Temple. Octavo. Original black cloth, title gilt to the spine, blind panelling to the front board. Frontispiece and 5 other plates. Lightly rubbed, endpapers browned, pale toning to the text, and a scatter of marginal foxing, a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon anthropological study, "the outcome of curiosity aroused in myself as to the ancient faith of the little known Yezidi tribes, based on a visit to their strongholds and amplified by a little research amongst the existing literature on the subject" (Preface). Empson's "visit" would seem to have taken place while he was serving with No.1 Squadron in Iraq. Empson remarks that in his commentary the respected orientalist Sir Richard Temple "has not always adopted my own or my authorities' explanations, but I do not look on this as a misfortune, as the object before us is to get at the truth, which is often accomplished by noting and eventually reconciling difference of views on matters still but imperfectly known". Bookplate of Andrew Morrison with "Map of South Perses and the Shores of the Gulph" to the front pastedown.

        The Childermass. Section I. [Signed - Limited Edition]

      London, Chatto and Windus, 1928.. 21.9cm x 14.6cm. 322 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Signed by the author. Limited Edition - no. 155 of 225 copies.. Percy Wyndham Lewis (18 November 1882 - 7 March 1957) was an English painter and author (he dropped the name 'Percy', which he disliked). He was a co-founder of the Vorticist movement in art, and edited the literary magazine of the Vorticists, BLAST. His novels include his pre-World War I-era novel Tarr (set in Paris), and The Human Age, a trilogy comprising The Childermass (1928), Monstre Gai and Malign Fiesta (both 1955), set in the afterworld. A fourth volume of The Human Age, The Trial of Man, was begun by Lewis but left in a fragmentary state at the time of his death. He also wrote two autobiographical volumes, Blasting and Bombardiering (1937) and Rude Assignment: A Narrative of my Career Up-to-Date (1950). Lewis was reputedly born on his father's yacht off the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. His British mother and American father separated about 1893. His mother subsequently returned to England, where Lewis was educated, first at Rugby School, then at the Slade School of Art, University College, London, before spending most of the 1900s travelling around Europe and studying art in Paris. Mainly residing in London from 1908, Lewis published his first work (accounts of his travels in Brittany) in Ford Madox Ford's The English Review in 1909. He was a founder-member of the Camden Town Group in 1911. In 1912 he exhibited his Cubo-Futurist illustrations to Timon of Athens (later issued as a portfolio, the proposed edition of Shakespeare's play never materialising) and three major oil-paintings at the second Post-Impressionist exhibition. This brought him into close contact with the Bloomsbury Group, particularly Roger Fry and Clive Bell, with whom he soon fell out. In 1912 he was commissioned to produce a decorative mural, a drop curtain, and more designs for The Cave of the Golden Calf, an avant-garde cabaret and nightclub on London's Heddon Street. It was in the years 1913-15 that he developed the style of geometric abstraction for which he is best known today, a style which his friend Ezra Pound dubbed "Vorticism." Lewis found the strong structure of Cubist painting appealing, but said it did not seem "alive" compared to Futurist art, which, conversely, lacked structure. Vorticism combined the two movements in a strikingly dramatic critique of modernity. In his early visual works, particularly versions of village life in Brittany showing dancers (ca. 1910-12), Lewis may have been influenced by the process philosophy of Henri Bergson, whose lectures he attended in Paris. Though he was later savagely critical of Bergson, he admitted in a letter to Theodore Weiss (19 April 1949) that he "began by embracing his evolutionary system." Nietzsche was an equally important influence. After a brief tenure at the Omega Workshops, Lewis quarrelled with the founder, Roger Fry, over a commission to provide wall decorations for the Daily Mail Ideal Home Exhibition, which Lewis believed Fry had misappropriated. He walked out with several Omega artists to start a competing workshop called the Rebel Art Centre. The Centre operated for only four months, but it gave birth to the Vorticist group and the publication, BLAST. In BLAST Lewis wrote the group's manifesto, several essays expounding his Vorticist aesthetic (distinguishing it from other avant-garde practices), and a modernist drama, "Enemy of the Stars." The magazine also included reproductions of now lost Vorticist works by Lewis and others. (Wikipedia)

        Der Große Brockhaus, 15. Auflage, Halbleder-Ausgabe, 20 + 1 Bände.

      Leipzig, F. A. Brockhaus, 1928 - 1935.. Völlig neu bearbeitete Auflage. Der erste "große Brockhaus" mit 20 Bänden im Gesamtumfang von circa 16.000 Seiten. Enthalten sind 200.000 Stichworte und 40.000 Abbildungen im Text, auf 2.400 teils farbigen Tafeln. Vollständiges Grundwerk in 20 Bänden (A - Z) sowie der Ergänzungsband 21, zusammen somit 21 Bände. Schwarze Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf rotem Rückenschild, linienförmiger Goldprägung und Kopfgoldschnitt; Deckel aus blauem Leinen und mit Lederecken. Ästhetisch ansprechende Bände mit gegenüber der Jahrhundertwende versachlichter, aber gleichwohl eleganter Formensprache. Eine Besonderheit stellen die zahlreichen Farb-Bildchen dar, die vom Verlag in jedes einzelne Exemplar eingeklebt wurden. Die 15. Auflage gilt heute als Meilenstein der Brockhaus-Geschichte und Brücke in die Moderne. Für den Bibliographen Gert A. Zischka stellt sie "einen Höhepunkt der deutschen Lexikographie dar (200.000 Stichworte, unübertreffliche Ausstattung) ... Objektive Haltung, sorgfältige Literaturangaben." Auch im Standardwerk der Lexikographie, dem kommentierten Seemann-Verzeichnis, wird sie als "wichtiges Standardwerk" bezeichnet und in ihrer Bedeutung gar mit der legendären 6. Auflage des Meyer-Lexikons verglichen. Darüber hinaus kann sie als detaillierter Zeitspiegel der Weimarer Republik gelten. Trotz des hohen Lobes von lexikographischer Seite wird diese Auflage in ihrer Bedeutung oft unterschätzt.. Alle Bände in sehr gutem Zustand, kaum berieben oder bestoßen. Deckelleinen im Wesentlichen sauber, allenfalls partiel mit leichten Fingerspuren. Seiten frisch und fleckenfrei. Das ausfaltbare Modell des Menschen im 12. Band vorhanden. Zusätzlich beiliegend: Die - eigens für diese Auflage gefertigte, sehr seltene (!) - Broschüre "Die Wünscherute. Praktische Winke zur Erschliessung der ,Grossen Brockhaus' für Leben und Wissen, Arbeit und Unterhaltung", ferner eine Doppelpostkarte des Brockhaus Verlages für Anregungen der Nutzer an den Verlag. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
