        Suite of proof copper engravings for The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

      Bristol: Douglas Cleverdon, 1929 (but 1972). Small portfolio containing fifteen copper engravings by David Jones. (15)ff. The suite was printed on Japon directly from the copper plates before they were steel faced. The suite includes the ten engravings that appeared in the published work and five discarded engravings. All are numbered and initialed by Jones; the discarded engravings are thus indicated by Jones in pencil. Although it was Cleverdon who initially proposed the use of copper engravings to illustrate Coleridge's poem, Jones embraced "the most specific beauty" of the medium: "a lyricism inherent in the clean, furrowed free, fluent engraved line." Cleverdon later argued that what Jones achieved in these engravings was "a symbolic imagery drawn from the depths of Coleridge's creative imagination" and was "the worthy tribute of one great poet to another" (p. 17). This was also Jones's last major work as an engraver. Of the five suites issued separately, it is believed that only three survive intact. This suite is housed in a cloth chemise and full green morocco folding case by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Very fine.

        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

      Bristol: Douglas Cleverdon, 1929. Quarto. 37pp., + (8)ff. plates. One of only ten copies in the most limited state, with two extra loose suites of engravings and an original signed pencil drawing housed in a portfolio inside the rear cover. Illustrated throughout with ten masterful engravings on copper, comprising eight full-page plates and two smaller images which serve as head- and tailpieces. The extra suite of prints contains fifteen proof engravings by Jones printed on cream Japon without the background tone, including the five engravings which were discarded and not used in the final version. There is also a full suite of the ten published copper engravings in the final state, printed on handmade paper with a light gray background tone. The original drawing is one of ten that Jones saved from the almost 200 sketches and working drawings that he made in preparation for the copper engraving; the rest were destroyed. The original drawing included is the third plate, titled "The Death Fires," and is remarkably close to the final version of the engraving, showing the ship in limbo upon the still sea, where "slimy things did crawl with legs." Bound in original vellum by Wood and London with the title in gilt on the spine. Slight bowing to covers, and two of the portfolio's flaps are starting to split. One of the few works executed by Jones with copper engravings, and one of his most stunning achievements.

Although they were signed by the artist, none were colored. There is conjecture that Mr. Connett may have asked Mr. King to design these prints but subsequently decided not to publish them in competition with Paul BrownÕs American Polo Scenes [1930]. For reasons that are at present unknown, the Edward King polo prints were never offered for sale by the Press.?" Uncommon and dynamic images.

        Texte. Sechs Stücke für Männerchor [op. 35].

      [Berlin, wohl Frühjahr 1929].. Typoskript mit zahlr. eigenh. Überarbeitungen. 5 Bll. in altrosafarbenem, eigenh. beschriftetem Umschlag mit Namenszug im Titel und schwarzem Kalikorücken. Gr.-4to.. Unpublizierte Quelle zu Schönbergs Opus 35 ("Sechs Stücke für Männerchor"): Typoskript der Texte aller sechs Stücke in der ursprünglichen Reihenfolge (1, 3, 5, 2, 4, 6), dann von Schönberg mit Bleistift in die endgültige Abfolge gebracht und in mehreren Phasen mit Tinte, Blei- sowie rotem und blauem Buntstift umfassend überarbeitet. Auch die Titel der einzelnen Stücke sind hier teils noch nicht endgültig festgelegt: für Nr. 1 (später "Hemmung") wird hier noch "Ausdruck?" erwogen; Nr. 3 ("Ausdrucksweise") ist noch tentativ mit "Selbstgefühl?" überschrieben und bildete ursprünglich das 2. Stück. Die Komposition geht zurück auf eine Anfrage des Vorsitzenden des Arbeiter-Sängerbundes, Alfred Guttmann, der Schönberg im Herbst 1928 eingeladen hatte, sich mit einer entsprechenden Komposition an einer Männerchorsammlung zu beteiligen. Daraus entstand im März 1929 der Chor "Glück", später das 4. Stück von op. 35. "Im April schrieb Schönberg die Texte aller [sechs] Chöre auf und komponierte als zweiten den (ebenfalls nicht-zwölftönigen) Chor 'Verbundenheit'" (Arnold Schönberg Center, op. 35). - Sämtlich auf Briefpapier mit Schönbergs gedrucktem blauem Briefkopf und vom Komponisten selbst zum vorliegenden Heft zusammengefasst. Aus der Sammlung des Lyrikers Michael Guttenbrunner (1919-2004) mit seinem Stempel auf der Versoseite jedes Blatts.

        The Vicar of Wakefield

      David McKay, New York 1929 - New York, David McKay, 1929. Full vellum with gilt titles, spine titles, borders and spine decoration. Top edge gilt. Deckled edges. Decorative endpapers. 232 pp. No. 160 of 200 copies of the American Edition. LIMITED, NUMBERED AND BOLDLY SIGNED BY ILLUSTRATOR ARTHUR RACKHAM. The total number of this deluxe illustrated edition was 775 of which 200 were for America, making this American edition the scarcer of the two. Illustrated with 12 full mounted color plates. Also many in text line drawings. This copy is very sound and complete, generally very bright, white, clean pages, of which approximately 1/3 remain unopened. The frontispiece is lightly foxed at margins as are the following five illustrations, but the frontispiece (see photos) is clearly the more foxed and each following illustration shows less and less marginal foxing. The remaining 6 illustrations are unfoxed, and all images are unaffected by the marginal foxing. (The photos show the frontispiece and the first unfoxed page). There is also foxing to the first few pages, (through the limitation page) and the last two pages. Otherwise, as noted above, the interior text pages are uniformly bright, white, clean, fresh and unblemished. The boards are lightly to moderately soiled/darkened, with much which could be removed with careful use of an eraser. Overall a very good copy with excellent illustrations for those who are charmed by the singular, distinctive style of line and color which makes Arthur Rackham one of the great book illustrators of the modern era.

        Gesammelte Werke / Musarionausgabe G A N Z L E D E R - L U X U S A U S G A B E,

      München Musarion Verlag, 1929 - Vollständige Ausgabe in den originalen Verlags-Luxuseinbänden: 23 sehr aufwendig hergestellte Handeinbände (schwarzes geglättetes Kalbsleder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 17,5 x 24,5 cm) mit Kopfgoldschnitt, Rückentitel auf zwei Titelschildern, Rückendekoration und Dekoration jeweils beider Deckel in aufwendiger Linien-Handvergoldung, Stehkanten- sowie Innenkantenvergoldung, Goldkopfschnitt. 21 Textbände und zwei Registerbände, mit vier Porträts und sieben (davon eines gefaltet) zumeist mehrseitigen Fakisimiles. Erste, im Auftrag von Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche veranstaltete Werkausgabe, enthaltend unter anderem auch bis dahin unveröffentlichte Jugendschriften, herausgegeben von Dr.Richard Oehler, Max Oehler und Dr.Friedrich Chr.Würzbach. - Insgesamt sind 1.600 Exemplare dedruckt worden, davon 185 in Ganzpergament, jedoch nur fünfzehn Exemplaren in Ganzleder und auf Japan-Velin-Papier, gebunden von A.Köllner/Leipzig, dieses Exemplar mit der Nummer 15. Vorsätze teilweise minimal stockfleckig. Insgesamt wohlerhaltenes und sehr ansehnliches Exemplar, ledigleich bei einigen Bänden kleine Kratzer im Leder, Bünde teilweise beschabt. - Kostbarste Version dieser Monumentalausgabe, die seinerzeit auch als Broschur, in Halbleder und in Ganzpergament lieferbar war. - Wahrscheinlich war es eine dieser Ganzlederausgaben Nr.1 ff, welche Benito Mussolini im zweiten Weltkrieg von Adolf Hitler als Staatsgeschenk des Großdeutschen Reiches erhielt; in der Kunstbuchbinderei Frieda Thiersch/München arbeitete ein Buchbindermeister volle zwei Jahre daran, für diese - ohnehin schon prachtvolle Ausgabe - noch wesentlich aufwendigere Einbände zu schaffen: es sollte dem Duce offensichtlich eine ganz besonders große Freude bereitet werden.(vgl. Fritz Krinitz, Frieda Thiersch und ihre Handbuchbinderei, Stuttgart 1968; dort ist das Führergeschenk als Abbildung 10 zu sehen) - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazu passendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn /München Sprache: de [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Bethlen Gabor Orszagalkoto Politikaja - Masodik Kiadas

      Patria Irodalmi Vallalat es Nyomdai Resv.-Tars, Budapest 1929 - 115 pages (complete). In Hungarian throughout. A very good copy of this VERY RARE book that is central to the story of Hungarian nationalism. Makkai's book, written in 1914, was picked up during the inter-war period as an essential text to the expression of Hungarian-Transylvanian nationalism. Bethlen Gabor, one time king of Hungary and Prince of Transylvania, led anti-Habsburg uprisings and revolts during the seventeeth century. His enlightened autocracy left an indelible trace upon his country (for example he instituted the right of a serf's children to education). This rare copy of Makkai (an historian who died in Cluj (in what is now Romania and ironically a central point to the modern Romanian revolution) in 1923 is is smartly rebound in half leather and board. The book has a thick, sensitively affixed, clear plastic protective cover. The cover beneath has some wear to the extremities and head and foot of the spine. Nonetheless, the cover and the binding are secure, sure and very healthy. Marbled frontis and end papers. The frontis illustration protection sheet is unfoxed and silky. The initial pages have mild marking. The pages are firm, thick, very confident, tidy, neat and smart. The end pages have rebinding repair along the guttering. The thickly stitched binding is very secure and friendly. A RARE IMPORTANT book. fk [Attributes: Hard Cover]
