        THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY

      London: Henry Greenwood & Co, 1987. First editions. 4 volumes are tall 8vos., all others are 4tos.; variable pagination's. 116 bound volumes and 14 volumes in approximately 730 issues in original illustrated wrappers. Various cloth bindings, with a few in quarter calf with marbled paper over boards, some volumes with extensive repairs or new bindings. Internally, very good to fine. Assembled from a variety of sources, with several being ex-library. A near and complete set, beginning with The Liverpool Photographic Journal, Volumes 1 & 2 (1854 -1855 and 1857-1858) and continuing as a long and unbroken run from 1862 through 1969, with the years 1974 through 1987 in the original illustrated wrappers, missing but a few issues from the last volumes of the 1980s. "First published in Liverpool, The British Journal of Photography began as the Liverpool Photographic Journal on 14 January 1854 and continued through December 1856 (vols. 1-3). It continued as the Liverpool & Manchester Photographic Journal from January 1857 to December 1858 (vols. 4-5). Following, this it continued as the Photographic Journal from January to December 1859 (vol. 6) and then as The British Journal of Photography from January 1860 (vol. 7) to the present. Initially a monthly journal belonging to the Liverpool Photographic Society, it was sold during 1856 to Henry Greenwood, the printer and publisher since inception. The firm moved from Liverpool to London in 1864 remaining as the journal's publishers. From 1 January 1857, the Journal became a fortnightly and from 1 January 1865, a weekly publication. At the same time, the earlier size of large 8vo. also changed to 4to. The Liverpool Photographic Society, and later the Liverpool Amateur Photographic Society, included amongst its membership: Francis Frith, then a printer; George Berry, a professional photographer; Henry Greenwood, a printer; as well as B.J. Sayce, W.B. Bolton, Peter Mawdsley and later, Vero C. Driffield. It was a suggestion made by George Berry that led to the publication of the Journal. The first editors were members of the Liverpool Photographic Society; Charles Corey, Frank Howard and George Berry. For a short period it was edited by William Crookes.... in 1858 it came under the editorship of George Shadbolt, and from January 1865, William Crookes and George Dawson edited it for a few months until J. Thrail Taylor took over the same year. Taylor remained editor until 1879, when he left for New York to take over the Photographic Times. W.B. Bolton held the reins until 1886, when Taylor returned to his previous post, remaining as editor until shortly before his death in 1895. The scope of contributions and contributors were both national and international and was admired wherever English was spoken. During the able editorship of Taylor and Bolton the Journal grew in importance and pages. A volume in the 1880s and 1890s typically contained over 800 quarto pages and these pages were frequently used to announce the progress of photography. The important developments in the gelatine (sic) dry plate as well as other processes were first published in its pages. Since 1860, The British Journal of Photography has retained the enviable position of being one of the most influential photographic journals in the world." Michael Hallett in Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography. A rare, near complete run of this outstanding journal.

        USE OF UTRECHT. TEXT FROM THE HOURS OF THE VIRGIN

      Northern Netherlands [Utrecht], ca. 1430s. n. This is a beautifully written out and illuminated leaf, in fine, bright condition with the text in the Dutch translation of Gerardus Magnus or (in Dutch) Geert Groote (or other variants, including Gerard, Gerrit, or Gerhard Groet, 1340-84). At a time when Books of Hours were almost exclusively in Latin (with occasional calendars, rubrics, or personal prayers in the vernacular), Groote sought to make the communication between the individual and the divine more direct by translating the Office of the Virgin into Dutch in or about 1385. Utrecht was the center of illluminated manuscript production in the Low Countries in the late Middle Ages, and one of the leading workshops was that of the artist known as the Master of Otto van Moerdrecht, who took his name from one of his patrons, a canon of the cathedral chapter. Our leaf comes from a manuscript that sold at Sotheby's in 1987 (for £10,450).. 154 x 111 mm. (6 1/8 x 4 3/8"). Single column, 19 lines in a pleasing gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, capitals struck with red, seven one-line initials in red or blue, recto with two two-line initials in burnished gold with penwork embellishment in purple or red, A VERY APPEALING EIGHT-LINE ''H" in blue with white tracery, ON A GROUND OF BURNISHED GOLD, the center of the initial with a curling white vine bearing flowers of pink and blue, the leaf ALSO WITH AN ANIMATED FULL BORDER featuring leaves and flowers in various colors and gold, THE LOWER AND OUTER portions of the BORDER EACH WITH A GOLD-WINGED, HALF-LENGTH ANGEL BY THE MOERDRECHT MASTER. Trimmed close at head and fore edge (minimal loss), a touch of flaking to gold on the initial, otherwise A FINE LEAF, clean, smooth, bright, and generally well preserved. This is a beautifully written out and illuminated leaf, in fine, bright condition with the text in the Dutch translation of Gerardus Magnus or (in Dutch) Geert Groote (or other variants, including Gerard, Gerrit, or Gerhard Groet, 1340-84).

        Les fronts des vieux. Poème autographe à l'encre (une page in-4, vers 1918).

      Brouillon autographe de deux poèmes, l'un de six vers, entièrement raturé (et sans doute inachevé), l'autre de quatre quatrains en alexandrins, intitulé "Les fronts des vieux". C'est le seul document connu attestant des recherches poétiques de Georges Bataille dans sa jeunesse, selon son biographe Michel Surya : "Il a dû exister des poèmes de jeunesse de Bataille. Un seul a pu être retrouvé parmi les papiers ayant appartenu à sa cousine Marie-Louise : 'Les fronts des vieux'. Il est inédit et, sans doute, est-ce mieux ainsi." (Georges Bataille, la mort à l'oeuvre. Paris, Séguier, 1987, p. 38)D'inspiration parnassienne, le poème décrit la physionomie des paysans auvergnats burinée par les rigueurs du climat : "Quand le vent sur la neige abbatue dans la nuit / Fait un ravage rude et froid sur les plateaux (...) Rien n'est plus en son lieu qu'un front barré de rides / Fronçant des yeux riants sous le chapeau bourru (...) Fronts du paysan fruste et du paysan vieux / Dont l'âme est souvenante et le corps est cassé". Une dédicace empruntée à Beethoven et placée en exergue, "An die Fernen geliebten" (aux êtres chers éloignés), laisse penser que Bataille a composé ce poème, soit pendant sa mobilisation en 1916, soit aux premiers temps de son installation à Paris en 1918. Document unique.

Croquis à la mine de plomb au verso, qui est une variante de la scène dans laquelle le Turlutin est dans l'eau. Il essaie seul d'en sortir.

        USE OF UTRECHT. TEXT FROM THE OPENING OF THE LONG HOURS OF THE CROSS

      Northern Netherlands [Utrecht], ca. 1430s. n. This is a beautifully scripted and illuminated leaf in fine, bright condition with the text in the Dutch translation of Gerardus Magnus or (in Dutch) Geert Groote (or other variants, including Gerard, Gerrit, or Gerhard Groet, 1340-84). At a time when Books of Hours were almost exclusively in Latin (with occasional calendars, rubrics, or personal prayers in the vernacular), Groote sought to make the communication between the individual and the divine more direct by translating the Office of the Virgin into Dutch in or about 1385. A priest whose life was characterized by luxury and irresponsibility until he experienced a profound spiritual awakening, Groote had established a scriptorium in Deventer in 1371 that would allow impoverished scholars to earn a living copying texts. This organization eventually grew into the Brethren of the Common Life, a teaching order that had a profound influence on European education, establishing the first graded schooling and emphasizing humanistic studies and Latin. Their students included Erasmus, and they had a lasting effect on the development of German humanism. Our leaf comes from a manuscript that sold at Sotheby's in 1987 (for £10,450).. 154 x 111 mm. (6 1/8 x 4 3/8"). Single column, 19 lines in a pleasing gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, capitals struck with red, eight one-line initials in red or blue, verso with one three-line initial in burnished gold embellished with red penwork and extensions; recto WITH A FULL BORDER composed, on either side of the text, OF a vertical bar border of burnished gold and blue with white tracery, the bars with hairline stems emanating from each end and spreading across the top and bottom and along the fore-edge margin, these vines bearing burnished gold trefoils, delicate daisies, and pink and green buds, and with the text opened by A STRIKING 10-LINE "H" IN HIGHLY BURNISHED GOLD ON A PINK AND BLUE GROUND WITH WHITE TRACERY, in the center of the initial a beautifully draped flowering vine. Trimmed close at head and fore edge (minimal loss), otherwise A VERY FINE LEAF--clean, fresh, and bright, with sparkling gold. This is a beautifully scripted and illuminated leaf in fine, bright condition with the text in the Dutch translation of Gerardus Magnus or (in Dutch) Geert Groote (or other variants, including Gerard, Gerrit, or Gerhard Groet, 1340-84).

      West Germany: Road Movies Filmproduktion, 1987. Vintage borderless photograph of Wim Wenders and Solveig Dommartin on the set of Wenders' landmark 1987 film.

Here, Dommartin, the object of hopeless affection for wandering angel Bruno Ganz, is herself dressed as an angel for her flying trapeze act. Dommartin was Wenders' girlfriend at the time, and after only 8 weeks of training performed all her own trapeze work onscreen.7 x 10.5 inches (17.5 x 27 cm). In an archival mat. Fine.Criterion Collection 490.
