        Verzierte gotische Einbände im alten deutschen Sprachgebiet

      Stuttgart, Josef Habbel at Regensburg for Max Hettler Verlag, 1951-1958. Four volumes (26 cm), I (Text, 1951): 159 (1) pp. II (1. Tafelband, 1953): 185 (1) pp. Plates 1-152. III (2. Tafelband, 1956): 137 (1) pp. Plates 153-256. IV (3. Tafelband, 1958): 157 (1) pp. plates 257-364 (altogether, approximately 2400 illustrations). Uniformly bound in collector’s red cloth. - A pioneering work for identifying the bindings of German incunabula, based on the author's systematic investigation of forty-three libraries, mostly in South Germany, where he examined 23,800 volumes. Kyriss identifies 186 groups of tools, each one of which probably represents the equipment of a single bindery; thirty-eight of these are monastic binderies, thirty-two binderies which used a name tool, a small number are binderies signing with initials or arms, and the rest binderies associated with a particular town. "The work takes its place among reference books of outstanding importance... With the aid of these plates it should be possible to localize a high proportion of German gothic bindings" (from a review by Howard Nixon of Bildband II, in The Book Collector, Spring 1957, pp.75-76). ¶ Ownership inscriptions and notes ink on endleaves of the bookbinding historian William Smith Mitchell (1908-1982); his pencilled instructions to his bookbinder on half-titles. Loosely inserted are Mitchell's typescript for a review (for Libri, volume 8, 1958, pp.200-201), and several of his offprints.

        Rain On The Pavements ( J.B. Priestley's Personal Copy)

      The First UK printing published by John Lehmann in 1951. Author's scarce second book. The Book is in Very Good++ or better condition. The boards are clean with some fading to the edges and a small bump to the fore-edge. There is some mild toning to the text block. Mild pushing to the spine tips. The book is tight, clean and free from inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in VERY GOOD++ or better condition. It bears the correct price of 10s 6d. It has some minor edge-wear with associated creasing and rubbing with a little loss to the ends of the spine. The spine is slightly toned but this does not detract from the pictorial wrap around design. The rear panel has mild toning to the edges but less so than usually encountered. Some small closed tears to the spine and flap folds which have been reinforced with a little archival tape to the verso. The wonderful period wrapper artwork is by the renowned artist JOHN MINTON and looks stunning in the Brodart protective cover. John Minton was commissioned to design the wrappers for both of Camberton's books. The book also bears the personal library bookplate of J.B.Priestley to the front pastedown. Priestley was a great supporter of Camberton and was instrumental in gaining recognition for Camberton's first novel 'Scamp'. This is a very scarce association title. There has been much interest in Roland Camberton recently resulting in both his novels now being back in print. The author Iain Sinclair has particularly taken an interest and written on Camberton and his books. Collectible. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        My Cousin Rachel

      1951 - First edition. 8vo., original red cloth, dust jacket. London, Gollancz. Inscribed by the author, ?To Dinkie, with best love for Christmas 1951, from Daphne? and signed by her on the title page. It is tempting to think that this inscription is to ?Binkie?, for it was Binkie Beaumont, king of the West End theatre, who produced Du Maurier's own stage adaptation of Rebecca, directed by and starring John Gielgud, and September Tide in 1949, and other books inscribed to Beaumont have been on the market recently. However, the D does appear quite clear. A very good copy in dust jacket, torn at the head and tail of the spine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Collection of Four Novels with Dust-Jackets Designed by Andy Warhol]. [Comprising: Three More Novels, by Ronald Firbank; Love is a Pie, Maude Hutchins; The Desire and Pursuit of the Whole, Baron Corvo; and Borderline Ballads, William Plomer].

      New York New Directions and Noonday Press -1955 1951 - First U.S. editions. 8vo (23 x 15 cm). Publisher's cloth, illustrative dust-jackets designed by Andy Warhol (upper flaps to first and third state 'Jacket design by Andrew Warhol'); age-toning (mostly to last title), minor rubbing to Firbank and Corvo, minor chips to extremities, light stain to rear corner of upper spine of Firbank, small area of tape residue to upper flap from earlier repair and three small closed tears to Corvo. Rare, early examples of Warhol's work. The first three titles are particularly scarce. As a young artist in New York, Warhol created just a few such cover designs. Three More Novels bears Warhol's first published dust-jacket for New Directions and only his second commercially produced jacket, after a Doubleday title earlier in the year. The covers constitute some of Warhol's most underrated work and were made long before the establishment of The Factory; nevertheless, they exemplify many of the innovative techniques for which Warhol came to be known, such as applying ink to paper and then blotting it while still wet. It is also appropriate that these jacket designs appear on books by four authors who were, in their day, themselves provocative: Ronald Firbank (1886 – 1926), an inventive English novelist influenced by the aesthetes of the 1890s whose common themes included religion, social-climbing and sexuality; Maude Hutchins (1899 – 1991), the American novelist best known today for her sexual coming-of-age novel, Victoire; Baron Corvo (Frederick Rolfe, 1860 – 1913), an English writer, artist, photographer and eccentric of notoriety; and William Plomer (1903-73), the South African-British novelist, poet and literary editor, whose first novel, Turbott Wolfe, dealt with interracial love. Warhol's meteoric rise would begin in 1962 with a debut solo show at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Autograph letter from the English playwright and wit to Marlene Dietrich, thanking her for the present of a blue alpaca suit, announcing plans to visit Southern France with Binkie [Hugh Beaumont] to discuss his new play [Relative Values?], and sending his love. [London], 13 July 1951. 2 pp., 8vo, on Coward's letterhead. Folding creases; overall very fine. 5 x 8 inches (12.8 x 20.2 cm).Text, in full: "Darling Marlene, I do not know where you are so I am sending this care of Maria to be forwarded. It is merely to tell you that my blue Alpaca dinner jacket suit is the smartest thing ever seen on land or sea & is one of the loveliest presents I have ever had--and you are a darling duck. Life over here has been highly social but I am putting a stop to all that & am going off to the South of France to stay with Binkie & discuss my new play & various business things. I tried twice to get through to Michael on the telephone but without success. When I get back in August I will try again & will flaunt my blue Alpaca suit under his nose. All my love to you darling & take care of yourself. Noël."From the collection of the family of Marlene Dietrich, a lifelong friend of Noel Coward. Their close relationship began in 1935, when Dietrich called Coward to congratulate him on his film The Scoundrel--he hung up, thinking it was a prank call. They remained friends until Coward's death, often exchanging letters about Dietrich's turbulent love life.

        Jerusalem. The Emanation of the Giant Albion.

      Trianon Press. [1951] 4to, (6), ix text, and 100 pochoir colour plates. Full red morocco extra by Bayntun, a gorgeous copy sumptuously bound (as the book deserves). Limited to 516 copies, this copy no. 176. The definitive facsimile of one of Blake's greatest works and the first of the magnificent series of facsimiles created by the Trianon Press of Blake's illuminated books. The Preludium is by Joseph Wicksteed and the Bibliographical Statement by Geoffrey Keynes. Bentley 78. "Blake's etched copperplates, giving the text of his poem and the basis of the designs, were printed by him in a rich orange ink and were then illuminated by hand in water colours and gold. The etched base has now been reproduced by collotype in orange and the prints have then been coloured by hand by a stencilling process, so that the final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates. An average of forty-four applications of water colours was required for each full page illustration, of which there are four. Of the remainder, fifty-one have some text with designs filling half the page or more, and thirty-five have text with small marginal decorations.". (Introduction) Copies were issued in fascicles, or a dull blue buckram binding: This copy was bound for presentation and is magnificent
