Druck des Textes in Rot und Schwarz in der von Edward Johnston für dieses Werk entworfenen Hamlet-Schrift. 3 weiße Blatt, 1 nicht nummeriertes Blatt (Schmutztitel), 1 unpaginierte Seite (Titel), S. 4 - 202, 1 nicht nummeriertes Blatt ("Übersichtsplan über den Stoff", verso: Druckvermerk). Original - Otto- Dorfner - Maroquineinband auf fünf Bünden. Kopfgoldschnitt; Vorder- und Fußschnitt unbeschnitten. Mit handumstochenen Kapital.. Meilenstein deutscher Bibliophilie im 20.Jahrhundert; # 43 von 255 Exemplaren (davon 230 Exemplare - hier vorliegend - auf Maillol-Kesslereschem handgeschöpften Bütten, 15 Exemplare auf Kaiserlichem Japan und 8 Exemplare auf englischem Pergament) - Sarkowski 1585; Schauer I, S. 91/92; Müller-Krumbach # 48 und S. 56 ff.; Brinks # 76 und S. 127 ff. - Die Cranach-Presse - "die europäischste unter den deutschen Pressen" (Schauer I, S. 89) - wurde in Weimar im Jahre 1913 durch Harry Graf Kessler gegründet. Der sich dabei selber auferlegte Anspruch bei der Herstellung von Druckerzeugnissen war hoch: es sollten vollendete Buchkunstwerke geschaffen werden und zwar ohne auf etwaige merkantile Einwände Rücksicht zu nehmen. Der ausgewählte Inhalt des Textes sollte ein harmonisches Ganzes mit allen Bestandteilen des Werkes - angefangen bei der Auswahl des Papiers und der Drucktypen, der Auswahl der Graphik, des Layouts und der Gestaltung des Einbandes - bilden. In Kesslers Abwesenheit während des 1.Weltkrieges entstanden Ausgaben und Bücher unter der Aufsicht Henry van de Veldes. Im Jahre 1931 wurde die Cranach-Presse aufgelöst: das Inventar wie Originaldruckstöcke und Druckschriften usw. gingen bei Bombardierungen im 2.Weltkrieg unter. - Kesslers (1868 - 1937) Wirken für die Kultur war prägend: in verschiedenen Funktionen, nicht zuletzt als Mäzen, förderte er neben der Buchkunst die bildende zeitgenössische Kunst, das Theater und die Literatur. So war er u.a. "einer der Mitbegründer des 'PAN' (1895)" (siehe Rodenberg S. 148). Seine Kontakte zur Kunst- und Literaturszene waren länderübergreifend. Das Inferno des 1.Weltkriegs machte ihn zum Pazifisten, er nahm "für das Auswärtige Amt mehrere diplomatische Sonderaufträge wahr" (DBE a.a.O.) und wurde aufgrund seiner progressiven Einstellungen als "roter Baron" bekannt. "1932 unterstützte er John Heartfields Plakatpropaganda gegen die Nationalsozialisten" (DBE a.a.O.). 1933 verließ er Deutschland und betätigte sich vor allem schriftstellerisch. "Sein Weimarer Besitz [wurde] zwangsversteigert und sein Berliner Wohnung geplündert" (DBE a.a.O.). - Zum vorliegenden Werk: Die Holzschnitte - einzelne Figurinen und großflächige Langholzschnitte mit Szenen - sind das Ergebnis von Edward Gordon Craigs Entschluß, die Entwürfe, die auf seine Tätigkeit als Bühnenbildner zurückgehen, "buchkünstlerisch zu verwerten" (Müller-Krumbach S. 57), wobei der Satz "Suggestion, nicht Realismus" seine Herangehensweise verdeutlicht. Verstärkt wird diese Bühnenwirkung durch die Verwendung von horizontalen und vertikalen Linien unterschiedlicher Stärke, wodurch Räume und Perspektiven angedeutet werden. Die unterschiedlichen Grautöne innerhalb eines Holzschnitts wurden nicht durch verschiedene Druckvorgänge, sondern durch die drucktechnisch besonders anspruchsvolle Zurichtung der Druckstöcke und durch die Bearbeitung der Druckerschwärze erreicht. Schauer vergleicht zutreffend die optische Wirkung der Bildersprache Craigs mit einem Spannungsbogen von Regungslosem, Lauerndem und Tückischem, der plötzlich durch die jähe Aktion unterbrochen wird (siehe Schauer I, S. 92). - Die beiden Grade der Hamlet-Type wurden vom Schriftkünstler Edward Johnston für das vorliegende Werk entworfen und von den Stempelschneidern Edward Prince und G.T.Friend geschnitten. Angelehnt war das Schriftbild an den von Fust und Schoeffer im Jahre 1457 gedruckten Mainzer Psalter. Beim Dramenwortlaut wurde eine Gotisch mit hochgereckten Oberlängen verwendet, bei den Prosatexte - das sind die begleitenden Texte - fand dagegen eine stämmige Rundgotisch kleineren Grades Anwendung (siehe Schauer I, S. 92). - Das Layout wird durch den Entschluß Kesslers, dem Dramenwortlaut eine Kommentierung beizugeben, bestimmt: meist umringt der Rahmentext das Drama, aufgrund der unterschiedlichen Längen sind die letzten Seiten nur dem Rahmentext vorbehalten. Einfluß auf das gestalterische Bild nimmt auch die Verwendung des Rotdrucks: die rot gedruckten Passagen sollten "weniger schwer auf die Figuren" drücken und die "ganze Seite leichter und luftiger" machen (Brinks S. 129). Rot gedruckt wurde die Titelzeile "Die tragische Geschichte von Hamlet Prinzen von Daenemark", die durchlaufende Kolumnenüberschrift, die seitlich stehenden Akt- und Szenenangaben, die Pantomimenangaben auf S. 92/93, die Quellenangabe auf S. 188 sowie der Druckvermerk. - Als Randkommentare verwendet Kessler Shakespeares eigene Quellen zu Hamlet: "Diese waren die Histoire tragique von Beelesforest,..., die Hystorie of Hamlet und die Historiae Danicae von Saxo Grammaticus" (Brinks, S. 132) und zwar in Auszügen, im Original und in deutscher Übersetzung. In die "Hamletquellen", die dem Druckvermerk und dem "Übersichtsplan über Stoff" vorangestellt sind, findet der Leser eine eingehende Erläuterung Kesslers dazu. - Der Verlagseinband aus rostrotem Maroqiun trägt als Rückentitel die jeweils dreizeiligen Angaben "Shakespeare G.Hauptmann Hamlet" und "Holzschnitte von Gordon Craig" im zweiten und dritten Rückenfeld. Alle sechs Bundfelder sind durch eine einfache Karreevergoldung verziert. Die Kapitale werden durch eine goldgeprägte Doppellinie hervorgehoben, wobei zwischen den Doppelgoldlinien am unteren Kapital zusätzlich die zweizeilige Angabe "Cranachpresse MDCCCXXX" zu lesen ist. Die Vorder- und Hinterdeckel sind mit einer einfachen goldgeprägten Rahmenvergoldung verziert, ansonsten aber schmucklos. Die Deckel weisen eine Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung - letztere mit Doppellinie - auf. Die Bezeichnung des Buchbinders "O. Dorfner Weimar" ist goldgeprägt auf der unteren Innenkante des Hinterdeckels vermerkt. - Beigefügt: Erster Prospekt zur Deutschen Ausgabe des Hamlet. 1 Blatt, vorderseitig bedruckt in Rot und Schwarz in der Hamlet-Type. Quart (25,6 x 22,6 cm) Mit Eingangsversalie in Rot (ornamentiert von Aristide Maillol, geschnitten Eric Gill) und Holzschnitt "Soldat mit Schild" von Edward Gordon Craig aus dem Hamlet in Schwarz. 6-zeilige Vorankündigung des Buches in Rot; 22- zeilige Ankündigungen zu den drei Ausgaben des Werkes, ihrer Ausstattung, Auflagenhöhe und den Preisen in Schwarz, einzeilige Abschlußzeile zur Auslieferung in Rot.

Un successo editoriale: centomila copie vendute solo nell'edizione economica, un milione di diritti d'autore. Un successo politico: Mussolini ha ora un posto e un pubblico sul palcoscenico mondiale. Questo autoritratto del capo del fascismo nel momento in cui si avvia all'acme del potere viene qui riprosposto, in edizione integrale, con una prefazione di Silvio Bertoldi. volume in Italiano EAN: 9788817258395

        ARMATA DI TERRA E DI MARE DI SUA MAESTA' IL RE DELLE DUE SICILIE FRANCESCO I. 567 acquarelli di Italo Cenni.

      Offriamo una raccolta unica ed inedita che testimonia l'estrema varietà e la ricchezza delle uniformi di un esercito e di una marina assai poco conosciuti. Come in un'ideale parata, sfilano davanti al sovrano allora regnante - Francesco I (1825 - 1830) - generali e dragoni, granatieri e cacciatori, marinai ed artiglieri, alabardieri e svizzeri. Questa straordinaria collezione, composta da 567 acquarelli (mm. 270 x 195) eseguiti da Italo Cenni negli anni 1928 - 1930, è divisa in 10 raccoglitori (ciascuno con Indice dettagliato delle uniformi illustrate), a formare 6 volumi, cosi' suddivisi: Vol. I: frontispizio con l'illustrazione della bandiera del Re delle Due Sicilie, datato 1830. Prime 61 uniformi relative a: "Stato Maggiore Generale - Corpi di Casa Reale - Guardia Reale - Fanteria". Vol. II: dal n. 62 al n. 176: "Fanteria di linea" (in 2 raccoglitori). Vol. III: dal n. 177 al n. 252: "Cacciatori e Divisione svizzera - Cavalleria della Guardia reale". Vol. IV: dal n. 253 al n. 367: "Cavalleria di linea - Artiglieria - Pionieri - Treno - Gendarmeria" (in 2 raccoglitori). Vol. V: dal n. 368 al n. 464: "Corpi provinciali: Fanteria - Cavalleria" (in 2 raccoglitori).

"Italo Cenni (1874 - 1956), figlio dell'illustre artista Quinto Cenni, seguendo l'esempio del padre frequentò l'Accademia di Brera dove ebbe fra i suoi maestri Vespasiano Bignami e Ludovico Pogliaghi. Si dedicò inizialmente alla composizione di soggetti sacri ma passò ben presto a soggetti di carattere storico e militare. Fedele continuatore dell'opera paterna, disegnò figurini militari nel pieno rispetto dei modelli originali, attenendosi scrupolosamente a regolamenti e decreti". Cosi' Diz. Biografico degli Italiani, XXIII, p. 561. Naturalmente non è citata la nostra raccolta, tuttora inedita.

        The CONEWANGO REFINING COMPANY, Warren, Pennsylvania. Originators and Sole Manufacturers of Genuine HM and Genuine LM Pure Pennsylvania Bright Stocks.

      Conewango Refining Co.,, Warren, PA: 1928 - 24 b/w photographs (7-1/2" x 9-1/2") mounted on linen hinges. 1st image signed "Thomas Studios in right corner. Otherwise, all explanatory text is printed at lower fore-edge in white cursive writing. The Conewango Refinery was famous for its Bright Stock base oils which had undergone solvent refining and dewaxing processes, and then other finishing hot filtration processes so they could be used in lubricant and lubricant additives for machinery and engines. The images show the refinery complex Plant No. 1 on the bluffs by Conewango Creek; Plant No. 2 located in fields set back from the water, the laboratory, their feed tanks, the filter and refrigeration houses for the plants; the Cold Settling Department; the Central Pump House; the construction in progress of the Nichols Herreshoff furnaces serving the filter houses; inside storage tanks for finished oils; the oil railroad tank car loading rack, and more. One photo in particularly great condition is an interior scene of Conewango Oil Refinery workers eating in a luncheon room at the Bright Stock Inn, with a Peterson Metal Barrel Company calendar on the wall dated February, 1928. Warren, Pennsylvania was at the heart of the major oil strikes in the 1870s, and the rapid growth of oil fields required local refineries to be built. In September 1877 there was a discussion of building a refinery within the city limits, but opposition from the community induced William Doe of Rouseville to build the Conewango Refining Company plant north of town along Conewango Creek, and alongside the D.A.V. & P. Railroad line. They quickly specialized in Bright Stock refining, and expanded over the next 50 years into two plants, maintaining their independence as one of the major small refiners in Pennsylvania. Myron Thomas was a self-taught chemist and photographer who established his first studios in Pennsylvania, including Mount Carmel, Ashland, and Tamaqua. They were famed for their aerial, commercial, publicity, and even studio photography. Minor shelfwear. Photographs clear and bright. A VG+ copy.

Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front end paper, "Nancy Mitford from Alfred Douglas August 1933".

This volume was sent to Bosie's friend Nancy Mitford on the occasion of her wedding.

        Transmission of Information

      New York: American Telephone and Telegraph Company, July, 1928. New York: American Telephone and Telegraph Company, July,, 1928. [In] The Bell System Technical Journal Volume VII, Number 3. Devoted to the Scientific and Engineering Aspects of Electrical Communication. Perfect bound. Original light blue wrappers, rebacked, wrappers printed in black. Housed in a black morocco folding case. Ownership ink stamps to upper wrapper. A little minor toning and a few small marks to wrappers. Contents fresh. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing in the original wrappers of this important early work on communications theory. "Hartley, a research engineer at Bell Laboratories, wanted to establish a quantitative measure to compare the capacities of various types of communications sytems – telephone, telegraph, television, etc. – to transmit information. 'Hartley distinguished between psychological and physical considerations – that is, between meaning and information. The latter he defined as the number of possible messages, independent of whether they are meaningful. He used this definition of information to give a logarithmic law for the transmission of information in discrete messages: H = K log s(superscript n) where H is the amount of information, K is a constant, n is the number of symbols in the message, s is the size of the set of symbols, and therefore s(superscript n) is the number of possible symbolic sequences of the specified length n. This law included the case of telegraphy and subsumed Nyquist's earlier law…' (Aspray, Annals of the History of Computing 7). Hartley had arrived at many of the important ideas of the mathematical theory of communication: the difference between information and meaning, information as a physical quantity, the logarithmic rule for transmission of information, and the concept of noise as an impediment in the transmission of information" (Norman, Origins of Cyberspace 316).

        Television

      London: Television Press, Ltd., 1928. London: Television Press, Ltd.,, 1928. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board in black. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and 32 plates, illustrations throughout the text. Mild bump to head of spine, spotting to endpapers, edges of text block, and occasionally to contents, pages 110 and 111 faintly toned from inserted newspaper clipping. An excellent copy in the rubbed, creased, and toned jacket with a few nicks and short splits, and a closed tear to the front flap. Second edition, revised and expanded, of the first book in English on television, originally published by Pitman in 1926. A nice copy, rare in the dust jacket. This volume covers all aspects of early television, and as the author writes in the new preface to this edition, "Since the first edition was published… so much work has been done on television, and such giant strides have been made in its development, both in this country and abroad, that it has been felt necessary to bring the book up-to-date… The original work was written in a popular, non-technical manner, with the object of interesting the man in the street… Great interest is now being manifested in television, and many experimenters have been attracted to this virgin field of scientific endeavour. In revising the first edition, therefore, I have not only endeavoured to include an accurate account of the work which has been done during the past two years; I have also made the entire book somewhat more technical, and enlarged it, with the object of making it useful to the amateur investigator as well as interesting to the average scientifically minded reader".

        The Usual Star.

      Dijon: Privately printed but 1934 1928 - ONE OF 100 COPIES, ‘privately printed for the author’s friends’, pp. 116, crown 8vo, original white paper wrappers lettered in black with the lightest of dustsoiling overall, backstrip lettered in black and a little toned, edges untrimmed, protective glassine wrapper, very good An exceptionally bright copy of what is itself a very scarce book, made all the more attractive for the association conveyed by the characteristically spare inscription on the title page: ‘H.D. to H.E.’ - the latter being the pioneering sexologist Havelock Ellis, who became part of H.D. and Bryher’s circle in 1919. In a letter to Ellis [‘Chiron’] from September 1934, H.D. mentions that ‘I am trying to post you two little prose volumes of mine that Br. [Bryher] had set up for me as a birthday present [‘The Usual Star’ and ‘Kora and Ka’]. I do not want you to read these. But it helps me to get them into circulation’. Initially, the author regarded their manner of publication and distribution as a simple unclogging (‘I am so blocked with MSS’), but she later - possibly buoyed by feedback from recipients that had disregarded her directive - developed more affection for what she came to term her ‘Peter Rabbit books’.Something of an eternal initiate, H.D. gravitated towards a series of paternal ‘teacher’ figures throughout her life - amongst these, Havelock Ellis played a crucial role in the development of her thought and experience. Both she and Bryher had consulted him in 1919, and he travelled with them to Greece the following year; his theories affirmed and explained certain aspects of their complex sexual identities, whilst his own proclivities - most salaciously, his urolagnia - were satisfied in return. In time, although they remained on good terms until his death in 1938, his authoritative position in her affections would come to be supplanted by her more lasting interest in the theories, techniques and charisma of Sigmund Freud - in fact, it was armed with a letter of introduction from Ellis that Bryher had first approached Freud in 1927, from which encounter arrangements for H.D.’s analysis with him ensued.The place and date given on the title-page [London, 1928] refer to the story’s setting, not its publication - the details of which are given in a statement at the rear. The section-title for the second story in this volume [‘The Two Americans’, p. 91ff] carries an equivalent designation [Vaud, 1930]. (Boughn A14)
