Dante Alighieri; Anderson, Melville Best (Translator and Author of "Florence")
San Francisco: John Henry Nash, 1929. Limited Edition. Vellum. Fine. No. 205 of 250 sets, Folio - over 12" to 15" tall, approximately 630 pp. for the four volumes. This work, spectacular in execution by one of the early 20th century's most distinguished printers, hardly needs an introduction. Melville Best Anderson (1851-1933) against all advice, decided to do a new translation of Dante in "terza rime" which is almost impossible to do in English, spending 28 years on his translation. John Henry Nash (1871-1947) spent six years bringing putting the translation into a published form he felt worthy, and succeeded to a degree that the sets are still highly sought after today. He began by scouring paper mills in England, Germany, Italy and Holland; it was there he found the Van Gelder Zonen mill in Amsterdam, from whom he ordered the special paper, with his watermark. The vellum for the binding presented another challenge, as it is a difficult material to handle successfully; after once again searching through Europe he commissioned the firm of Huble and Denck of Leipzig to make the bindings. The result is almost ethereal in its stark beauty and simplicity; the rather plain, majestic bindings with no ornamentation, the hand-set type in Cloister Lightface (which lightness of feel combined with its basis in Venetian printing of the 15th century was a perfect choice for this work), and the ruled pages setting off the text from the extensive marginal notes (the mitred rule, tricky to set, was a trademark of Mr. Nash), all work in perfect harmony.

"Aided by his literary reputation and more than 100 letters of recommendation, he dined with famous people such as President John Quincy Adams, the governors of several states, and artists and academics, toured all the chief eastern rivers, including the Alabama between Montgomery and Mobile, as well as the Great Lakes, the chief canals, and the Gulf of Mexico between Mobile and New Orleans. Hall's most significant land journey was by carriage across Georgia, an adventure far different from any in the more advanced eastern states, and one that included his being feted by the Creek Indians.

Kober, deutsche Ingenieurin in der Frühzeit der Luftfahrttechnik, intuitiv erfaßte sie die Bionik lange vor deren offizieller Geburt. Ilse Essers Erkenntnisse und Erfindungen sind heute selbstverständliches Basiswissen für Ingenieure im Maschinenbau, der Baukonstruktion und der Luftfahrttechnik in aller Welt. 1926 begann Ilse Kober bei der Deutschen Versuchsanstalt für Luftfahrt (DVL) in Berlin in der Abteilung für Aerodynamik. Dort entwickelte sie den "Massenausgleich an Flügelklappen und -rudern" als Maßnahme gegen unerwünschte und gefährliche Flügelschwingungen. Die TH Berlin promovierte sie dafür am 22. Februar 1929 als erste Frau in der Fakultät Maschinenwesen zum Dr.-Ing.! Mit beiden Arbeiten leistete sie einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Sicherheit in der Luftfahrt und im Maschinenbau.

John Wisden
Hi and Welcome to our Store. We are selling our HBs off in chunks, happy to split the sets or to send more details and pictures, please just ask us or the admin team here. This lot is a Set of 9 Hardback Wisdens - 1929 to 1937. In OK Condition, including the hard to find 1934 (Bodyline Wisden). This set would be rated as 6/10 , it is not the best in terms of condition but the books are all steady , as we know 1933 to 1937 tend to be rougher than the other HBs after the change of materials by Wisden. The 1929 has worn boards, the 1932 has some marks to the spine, 1933/5/6 has facsimile spine gilt. 1929 has repaired hinges but all the rest are strong and original. 1934 is in top form, all photoplates present and correct. A steady set for someone looking to pick up most of the 1930s Hardbacks. More details on request.
