        Japanesque

      1970 - First edition. 101 photographic plates, many doublepage and in colour. Large folio. Original decorated boards in slipcase (minor discoloration), still a very good copy. [iv], [viii], [iv](text)pp. Tokyo, Mainichi Shimbunsha, ?'Mt. Fuji'. 'Sword'. 'Noh'. 'Courtesan'. 'Sumo'. and 'Samurai'. All of these subjects gathered here are representative of the clichés with which Japan was once spoken of. What is ambivalent here is not merely the manner of selecting the subjects. Clearly apparent within the actual composition of the photography of nature and man, within the texture of the photographic surface, are the photographer's affection for and irritation at the objects.? (Essay: 'The Soul of a Young Japanese' by Yamazaki Masakazu). Very much a product of the '70s. Works 064. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Engravings By Rex Whistler For Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels.

      UK: London: Harrison & Sons for H. M. Fletcher, 1970 Limited Edition. 2 page Introduction by Anthony Rota. Number 8 of only 100 sets printed on handmade paper from the original plates with 12 plates coloured by hand according to the artist's directions (74 sets were for sale with one set on vellum). Folio. 14.5 X 10.75 ins. Original half green morocco with paper covered boards. Interior drop-back box holding title page, 2 text pages, Colophon and 25 plates. Gilt title on the spine. A Fine set housed within a Very Good++ drop-back box which has some fading of the colouring to the spine and some light rubbing to the edges. The Gilt titling remains very bright. The 1930 Cresset Press edition of 'Gulliver's Travels', illustrated by Rex Whistler, is 'one of the most handsome books ever to be published in this country (England). And the illustrations are ravishing.' ('The Twentieth Century Book' by John Lewis). The illustrative style of Rex Whistler (1905-1944), which eschewed the experimentalism of the 1920s, found its inspiration in the 17th and 18th centuries and so was well matched to Swift's classic. Whistler employed his favourite device of setting most of the illustrations within a highly decorative rococo marginal frame. A beautiful set of plates. Very scarce. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
