        WOMEN AND PHILANTHROPY - IN 19TH CENTURY ENGLAND

      Clarendon Press, Oxford 1980 - A fascinating narrative which explores the previously neglected topic of the role British women played in developing charity bazaars and in managing philanthropic agencies in the nineteenth century. Based on a wide range of literary and statistical evidence, this study investigates their motives, methods and range of activities in an area previously dominated by men. Their increased influence, Prochaska contends, gave women the administrative experience needed to enter the business and professional world, and encouraged them to extend their activities to campaigns for such legal and moral reforms as women's suffrage. - Condition & Description: Original Dustjacket retains price to inner prelim. Colour has faded in a few places but the dustjacket is complete. Navy cloth boards with gold/gilt lettering to the spine. These are in a very nice clean condition. 301 pages are beautifully clean throughout and ends with an in-depth index. [Finally: This book was written by a man ! - Yes it was - FRANK K. PROCHASKA!!] [How good is that?, can't help myself!]. - END. --- MAKE ME AN OFFER --- This is a rare work on how important feminism was during 19th century England and the price shown is what I would like to get for the book, but as with any of my books: I am open to any reasonable offers. If you make an offer and I accept it, I will change the price in abe books, so you can still buy through this site. --- POSTAGE OPTIONS: Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days.

The original signed silverprint is housed separately in portfolio made from oatmeal-colored boards. Portfolio lettered in gilt. A fine copy. Book and portfolio housed in publisher's original cardboard shipping box."Within the two-dimensional plane of the photograph itself, Brett has an equally rare capacity to create rhythms and dynamics in what we know to be perfect stillness. It is done of course, through the relationship of one form to another-powerful to weak- within the picture. Only the full exploitation of the black-and-white spectrum can accomplish such movement or- when he has chosen- the Zen-like immobility of ponds, harbors, canals, and other landscapes. An intriguing quality in Brett's work is that the greater the distance his lens encompasses, the less movement there is. The closer the subject, the more intense the rhythmic relationship." (R.H. Cravens).HBS 66057.$5,000

        LM 25117. Schweizerisches Landesmuseum, Zürich und Museum des Kantons Thurgau, Frauenfeld. Faksimile.

      Faksimile Vlg.,, Luzern, 1980 - Luzern, Faksimile Vlg., 1980. (Kommentar 1983). Folio. Graduale: 2° (50 x 35 cm), 314 farb. Bl. m. 71 tlw. m. Blattgold geschmückten Miniaturen, 13 ornamentale Initialen; - Kommentarband: 4°, IX, 347 S., 85 Textabb. Graduale: OLdr. auf 3 echten Bünden m. 2 Leder- Schliessen, Eisenbeschlägen u Mittelrosette; Kommentarbd in OHLdr. Schönes Exemplar. Eines von 980 num. Exemplaren. - Erstklassiges Faksimile der 1312 entstandenen Prachthandschrift, eines der bedeutendsten gotischen Kunstwerke der Schweiz, entstanden im Kloster St. Katharinental bei Diessenhofen. Der Textband mit der erstmaligen und umfassenden wissenschaftlichen Bearbeitung des Graduale. Jedes der 314 Blätter sowie die nachgewiesenen Fragmente der beiden im Codex fehlenden Blätter wurden wiedergegeben. Sämtliche Blätter wurden originalgetreu randbeschnitten und danach von Hand auf echte Bünde geheftet. Der Einband besteht aus echtem Nappaleder und ist mit Eckbeschlägen, einer Mittelrosette und Schließen versehen. "Das Graduale von St. Katharinental ist eines der bedeutendsten gotischen Kunstwerke der Schweiz und von unschätzbarem Wert für die Geistes-, Liturgie-, Kunst- und Kulturgeschichte des beginnenden Spätmittelalters. Ein Graduale ist ein liturgisches Buch, das jene Gesänge mit Notation enthält, die in lateinischer Sprache nach dem Kalender wechselnd im feierlichen Hochamt vorgetragen wurden. Für den Chor waren sehr große Bände notwendig, aus denen man selbst aus größerer Entfernung noch gemeinsam singen konnte. Das erklärt auch die imposante Größe des Codex: die 628 Seiten (314 Blätter) haben ein Format von 48 x 35 cm. Aufgrund eines handschriftlichen Eintrags auf der Innenseite des Vorderdeckels lassen sich sowohl die Herkunft des Manuskripts aus dem Kloster St. Katharinental in der Nähe von Dießenhofen in der Schweiz als auch die Zeit der Vollendung der Handschrift um 1312 erschließen. . Der Bilderschmuck des Werkes besteht aus 71 zierlich gemalten, reich mit Blattgold versehenen, farbenfrischen Miniaturen und 13 ornamentalen Prachtinitialen sowie unzähligen fein verzierten kalligraphischen Anfangsbuchstaben. An der großartigen künstlerischen Ausschmückung waren mindestens sechs, wenn nicht gar sieben Hände beteiligt. Das 1312 entstandene Graduale blieb bis ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein im Kloster Katharinental in Gebrauch. Auf welchen Wegen die Handschrift in den Jahren um 1820 in den Besitz eines Konstanzer Antiquars gelangte, ist bis heute unbekannt. Dieser machte das Graduale zum Mittelpunkt seines Museums. Er war es vermutlich auch, der die beiden am reichsten mit Miniaturen versehenen Seiten extrahierte. Sie befinden sich heute, in mehrere Teile zerlegt, bei verschiedensten Institutionen und auch in Privatbesitz. Schließlich tauchte die Handschrift Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in England auf, wo sie bis 1958 verblieb. In diesem Jahr wurde der Nachlaß des bedeutenden Sammlers Sir Charles Dyson Perrins versteigert, worunter sich auch das wertvolle Graduale befand. Diese einmalige Chance der Rückführung nutzten mit vereinten Kräften der Schweizer Bundesrat, die Gottfried-Keller-Stiftung und der Kanton Thurgau durch eine bereitwillige Zusage finanzieller Beteiligung. So konnte das Meisterwerk am 9. Dezember 1958 erworben werden und wird seither wieder in der Schweiz aufbewahrt."

        GRAPES AND GRAPE VINES OF CALIFORNIA. A Facsimile of the Original Edition of 1877. With an Introduction by Kevin Starr.

      John Windle Pub. Co., San Francisco 1980 - no.12 of a limited edition (see details below), 20 x 14½ inches, 10 colour plates by Hannah Millard each with its own description, xi pages of a new introduction + (iii) pages of the preface to the original, top edges gilt, cloth covered boards with morocco spine, marbled endpapers, slip-case slightly worn at the corners, there is a note in pencil in the publisher's hand on the final blank that "This is the last copy from my inventory. One personal copy is being bound for me." NOTE:- The folio Windle edition, originally planned to be limited to 300 copies for sale (100 bound and 200 loose in a portfolio) and 10 hors commerce was, in fact, never completed. Only 25 were bound and 40 in portfolio. A quarto edition was published elsewhere later. The original edition, published by Edward Bosqui in 1877, is itself very scarce. It is believed to have been a small edition and that few complete sets were assembled. Of those, a significant proportion seem to have been lost or irreparably damaged in the earthquake of April 1906. As John Windle, the publisher of the 1980 edition, states on the limitation page, he examined every known copy in the United States. Of these 14 copies, 8 were damaged, stained, foxed or imperfect. Only 6 were perfect. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hardcover of ivory buckram cloth over boards is titled in black on spine and front cover with color pictorial pastedown on front cover. Cover is clean and sharp. Slight rubbing and toning along edges of boards and spine but otherwise cover is fine - no bumps, tears or frays. Binding and hinges firm and intact; light salmon colored endpapers fine. The book is in a clear acetate jacket which is quite worn- toned along edges and spine, several tears and large chips. It has done well in protecting the book. A new acetate could replace this if the buyer desires. A momentous monograph on this important American artist - a leader of the 1960s Pop Art movement. It is actually autobiographic, as Slim Stealingworth was Wesselmann's pseudonym. Its 324 pages are packed with reproductions of Wesselmann's works: collages, early nude collages, bathtub collages, Great American Nudes, seascapes, smokers, mouths, faces, sculptures and several studies and drawings - as well as a few photographs of the artist and his studio. Many of the reproductions are in color. One of two plates on page 175 is pasted in, another plate is tipped onto the page. There are 2 fold-out pages with thumbnails of Wesselmann's fairly few prints and editions. An Exhibition List and Index are included. Laid into the book is the Abbeville Press invitation for a "meet the artist" party held on Dec. 8, 1981 at the 999 Bookshop in New York City. 12 x 13-1/4." The book weighs 7.5 lbs. Additional postage required for Priority or International mailing. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Faksimile - Die Eidgenössische Chronik des Wernher Schodoler. Um 1510 bis 1535 (2 Bde. Faksimile; 1 Kommentarband).

      Luzern, Faksimile-Vlg., 1980-83 - 2° (39.5 x 29.5 cm), Faksimilebde.: insgesamt 1048 Seiten mit 325 zum teil kolorierten Federzeichnungen; Kommentarbd.: 410 S.; , Faksimile: Bd. 1: Ganzleder mit Blindprägung, 2 Schliessen u. 10 Beschläge in OLwd.-Schuber; Bd. 2: Ganzleder mit Blindprägung, 2 Schliessen in OLwd.-Schuber; Kommentarband in OHLdr., Ldr. teilweise mit kleinen Flecken, sonst sehr schönes u tadelloses Exemplar. 102 von 980 arab. num. Exemplaren. Der 1. Band erzählt die Geschichte der Eidgenossenschaft bis zum Konzil von Konstanz (1415). Der Text ist in gotischer Kurrentschrift geschrieben. Zwar wurden die ursprünglich vorgesehenen Illustrationen, für die im Text der entsprechende Platz ausgespart ist, nie eingefügt, jedoch beginnen alle neuen Abschnitte mit farbigen Initialen und sind mit Rankenwerk geschmückt Dieser befindet sich in der Leopold-Sophien-Bibliothek in Ueberlingen u. wurde nicht faksimiliert, da es sich lediglich um einen Texband mit Initialen handelt. Der Text wurde jedoch transkripiert und ist im Kommentarbd. abgedruckt. Der 2. Band enthält hauptsächlich die Geschichte des Alten Zürichkrieges. Bis auf wenige selbstverfaßte Absätze stützt er sich vornehmlich auf Etterlin, den Berner Schilling und die Chronik der Stadt Zürich. Der Band ist mit 130 kolorierten Federzeichnungen sowie farbigen und goldenen Initialen geschmückt. Drei Zeichner haben ihn illustriert, von denen einer vermutlich Schodoler selbst war. Die Bilder dieses Bandes zeichnen sich durch eine überraschend atmosphärische Wirkung aus. Das mittelalterliche Weltbild der älteren Schweizer Bilderchroniken hat einem neuen Raum- und Lebensgefühl Platz gemacht. Der Künstler beobachtete scharf, und er vermochte seine Beobachtungen zu einer überzeugenden Bildkomposition zusammenzufassen. Dieser Teilband befindet sich in der Aargauischen Kantonsbibliothek. Der 3.Band beschreibt die Ereignisse aus dem Mühlhauserkrieg, dem Burgunderkrieg, dem Schwabenkrieg und den italienischen Feldzügen. Auch hier basiert Schodolers Werk auf der Berner Chronik des Diebold Schilling und auf Etterlin. Der dritte Band enthält 196 Federzeichnungen in Sepia, die von der Hand eines unbekannten Künstlers stammen. Dieser wächst in der Komposition über die früheren Chronikillustratoren hinaus. Die Landschaftsperspektive und dies ist neu hat Weite und Tiefe. Zudem spricht aus den Gebärden der dargestellten Menschen bereits das Körpergefühl der Renaissance. Die bildliche Aussage der Chronik des Wernher Schodoler gilt als charakteristisches Dokument der Zeit und als Zeugnis eines damals in so eigenartiger Weise verwirklichten Menschentypus, der Krieger und Künstler in sich vereinigte. Dieser befinde sich im Stadtarchiv Bremgarten.In dieser Edition sind jetzt alle Bände wieder vereinigt. Im Kommentarbd. die vollständige Edition des Chroniktextes, zu Leben und Werk von W. Schodoler, zur Sprache und handschriftl. Überlieferung, Register. Wernher Schodoler wurde 1490 in Bremgarten, der Stadt an der Reuss, geboren, wo seine Vorfahren bereits seit Jahrhunderten ansässig waren. Der Chronist selbst und seine Familie zählten zu den angesehensten Bürgern der Stadt. Sein Großvater und sein Vater hatten als Schultheißen dem städtischen Gemeinwesen vorgestanden. Im ersten Jahrzehnt des 15. Jahrhunderts war Schodoler als Kanzleigehilfe in Bern tätig, wo er Einblick sowohl in die Politik dieses führenden eidgenössischen Ortes als auch in die berühmten dort aufbewahrten Chroniken gewann. In seine Heimatstadt zurückgekehrt, stieg Schodoler schnell die Karriereleiter empor. Bis zu seinem tragischen Tod an der Pest 1541 hatte er die höchsten Ämter in Bremgarten inne. Bis heute ist nicht bekannt, was den vielbeschäftigten Stadtschreiber, der überdies an mehreren Kriegszügen teilgenommen hatte, dazu bewog, aus eigener Initiative eine umfangreiche Chronik zu schreiben. Es ist die einzige Chronik, die aus einem Untertanengebiet stammt. Schon deshalb ist sie von gehobener Bedeutung. 1200 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Book and portfolio housed in publisher's original cardboard shipping box. "Within the two-dimensional plane of the photograph itself, Brett has an equally rare capacity to create rhythms and dynamics in what we know to be perfect stillness. It is done of course, through the relationship of one form to another-powerful to weak- within the picture. Only the full exploitation of the black-and-white spectrum can accomplish such movement or- when he has chosen- the Zen-like immobility of ponds, harbors, canals, and other landscapes. An intriguing quality in Brett's work is that the greater the distance his lens encompasses, the less movement there is. The closer the subject, the more intense the rhythmic relationship." (R.H. Cravens). HBS 66057. $5,000 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
