        Aldus Manutius and the development of Greek script & type in the fifteenth century.

      Sandy Hook, CT: Chiswick Book Shop, 1985. Folio (33.5 cm; 13.25"). xiv, 115, [9 (5 blank)] pp., 4 samples tipped in. In his classic 1900 work Printing of Greek in the Fifteenth Century (Oxford Press), Robert Proctor held Aldus' Greek type in contempt, much preferring that of the Complutensian Polyglot Bible. Nicolas Barker here reexamines the matter of Aldus' choice of Greek types and puts a different spin on it, showing the design of the types "was influenced not only by contemporary scribal practice, but also by the expectations of his customers, accustomed to reading secular literature in manuscripts of very complex visual texture written in these cursive scripts" (Snipes).    In addition to presenting Barker's highly illustrated study, the volume has tipped in => a sample leaf printed in each of the four distinct Greek types developed by the press: From the first Aldine editions of Aristotle, 1497; Crastonus' Dictionarium Graecum, 1497; Euripides, 1503; and the Septuagint, 1518.    Printed in an edition of 500 copies, with "design and calligraphy by Stephen Harvard, printed and bound by Meriden-Stinehour Press," this bears => a title-page in red with white calligraphic lettering.    => Both the Euripides and the Septuagint leaves have interesting contemporary marginalia.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Disbound and Dispersed 184. Snipes, "Aldus Manutius and the Development of Greek Script and Type in the Fifteenth Century," a book review of Barker's book, in Renaissance Quarterly, XVI, 1, pp. 120–22.

        Die cronycke van Hollandt, Zeelandt en[de] Vrieslant beghinnende va[n] Adams tiden tot die geboerte ons heren Jh[es]u[m] voertgaende tot de[n] jare M.CCCCC. ende Xvij.Leiden, Jan Seversz., 18 August 1517. Folio. With the title-page printed in red and black with a large woodcut between different woodcut borders, and 239 woodcuts in text, including 121 woodcut portraits. Black blind-tooled goatskin (1637), with gold-tooled title and binding date on side.

      Adams A2252; J. van Gelder & I.Jost, Jan de Bisschop and his icones and paradigmata (1985), pp. 196-211; Jeudwine, p. 253, and no. 388. First edition of the famous and beautifully illustrated Dutch national chronicle, known as the "Divisiekroniek", because of its publication in 32 devisions. The chronicle contains various narratives of historical, ecclesiastical and hagiographical nature and is profusely and beautifully illustrated with woodcuts of various size and style. Only ten of the woodcuts were specially designed and cut for the "Divisiekroniek": apparently the Leyden printer Jan Severszoon used whatever he happened to have in stock. Some of the woodcuts are ascribed to Lucas van Leyden, Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen and Cornelis Engebrechtsz. Of particular interest is the black goatskin binding with gold-tooling on the front side and the spine. There are 21 other volumes known with similar bindings, all with the date "1637" on the side and a shelf mark on the spine, with a number at the top (here: "102") and a capital letter at the bottom (here: "E"). The highest number so far is "158", the letters run from A to F. Professor Jan van Gelder has shown that the volumes originally belonged to the art-collector Pieter Spiering Silfvercrona (d. 1652), who was responsible for the uniform black leather bindings.With an owner's inscription on the verso side of flyleaf by the Dutch engraver Frans Koerten (1603-1668), and owner's inscription on pastedown by Van Meurs (?), who bought the present copy at the auction of the library of Johannes Enschedé. Very good copy, without the often lacking index of four leaves and only slightly browned. Binding rubbed along the extremities, slightly damaged on spine.

        [Maquette pour un livre de photographies encore inédit à propos des travaux du Grand Louvre :] Photos [prises] de janvier à août 1985.

      1985. Photo. Très bon. Couverture rigide. Signé par l'auteur. Maquette. 1 album de format 33 x 28 cm, contenant, après un titre composé au letraset, 76 photographies originales (12 en couleurs) en tirage argentique d'époque au format 18 x 24 cm (environ) contrecollées, dont : François Huguier : 48 tirages dont 5 en couleurs ; Georges Tourdjman : 24 tirages dont 7 en couleurs ; Claude Bricage : 4 tirages. La plupart des photographies portent au dos le cachet de l'artiste, parfois sa signature. La première est signée par Françoise Huguier sous le tirage, les autres tirages de Françoise Huguier portent son monogramme. Les photographies de Georges Tourdjman sont monogrammées, datées et parfois légendées de sa main (sauf pour 7 d'entre elles, monogrammées de la main de Françoise Huguier). Françoise Huguier a écrit en toutes lettres le nom de Claude Bricage sous les tirages de celui-ci. On joint, dans une pochette à part, un ensemble de photographies à caractère documentaire sur le même sujet (11 en couleurs par le studio Patrice Astier, 5 par Georges Tourdjman dont une en double et deux vues artistiques, deux vues d'avion en couleurs). Projet de livre inabouti de la part des trois photographes. On y voit notamment la simulation de la pyramide avec des câbles dans la cour Napoléon (les tirages de Claude Bricage), d'impressionnantes excavations, des échaffaudages improbables, une sculpture équestre prenant les airs, des ouvriers travaillant à la restauration, des fouilles archéologiques dans le jardin des Tuileries, et la vie tentant de suivre son cours dans la partie du musée épargnée par les travaux. Important ensemble documentaire. La plupart des photographies semblent inédites et non exploitées par les photographes. Quelques menus accidents à quelques tirages..

      Dorchester, Mass; Kyoto, Japan; Boston; and Orono, ME, 1985. 81 vols. 8vo. Original staple-bound colored paper or card wrappers. Some shelfwear to first series, occasional soiling to covers, but overall near fine. 81 vols. 8vo. Nearly complete set of Origin magazine. A large, nearly complete set of this important magazine of post-war poetry and poetics edited and published by Cid Corman (1924-2004), spanning four decades and comprising 75 issues plus six duplicates. Published in five distinct series, Origin began in the 1950s by showcasing the work of Charles OLSON, Robert CREELEY, William BRONK, Robert DUNCAN, Denise LEVERTOV and Paul BLACKBURN among others. Corman continued to publish the magazine over the following three decades, featuring work by the likes of Louis ZUKOFSKY, Gary SNYDER, Michael McCLURE, Clayton ESHLEMAN, Armand SCHWERMER, Theodore ENSLIN, and Ron SILLIMAN, as well as devoting space to translations of the poets of Europe and Japan, Corman's adoptive home. Of special significance is the work of Lorine NIEDECKER (1903-1970), the Wisconsin poet associated with the Objectivist movement whose compelling body of work is among the most undeserverdly obscure in 20th century American poetry. Corman and Origin played a crucial role in reviving interest in the work of Neidecker; Issue 2 of the third series, July 1966, is devoted to Niedecker, and her work appears in numerous other editions throughout the series. The set lacks only five issues from the first series, with the second through fifth series complete, and includes six duplicate copies of various issues. A breakdown of the set by series is as follows: *First series, 15 (of 20) issues, without issues 8, 11, 14, 17, and 19. With 2 duplicate issues (3 & 12). Spring 1951-Winter 1957. *Second series: 14 issues, complete. April 1961-July 1964. *Third series: 20 issues, complete. April 1966-January 1971. *Fourth series: 20 issues, complete. October 1977-July 1982. *Fifth series: 6 issues, complete. Fall 1983-Fall 1985 with four duplicate copies of issue four.

The 15 woodengravings printed by Harold Patrick McGrath. Page size: 6 x 8.5 inches. Bound by Daniel Kelm (the design of Alan Robinson) full undyed Oasis with onlays of the frog in repose -- before the jump on the front panel and after the jump on the back panel, with doublures showing the frog in mid-jump. Onlays in green oasis of the frog jumping are on the front and back pastedowns, fine. Housed in linen clamshell box with pull-out portfolio for extra suites and the book. This Cheloniidae edition of the JUMPING FROG is from MARK TWAIN'S SKETCHES, NEW AND OLD (1875). It contains three versions of this notorious and celebrated tale: the original, the version translated into French (inadequately so, according to Twain) and the version "restored to the English after martyrdom in the French" by Twain. The afterword, "The Private Printing of the 'Jumping Frog' Story" by Samuel Clemens, first appeared in the NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW (1894). A lovely copy of this American classic with many extras. This is a classic of American private press books and highly desireable.
