        The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

      1988 - 1 of 150, this no.11. Originally offered with a choice of four fine bindings by different designers, this designed by Jeff Clements and executed 1988-1989, consisting of grey morocco ruled in black with inlays and onlays of snakeskin, blue and brown morocco on front and back, lettered in dark grey on the spine. Housed in the original blue clamshell box with brown morocco spine label (box a little bumped at edges), overall very good but with a small bump to the text block and boards on the bottom edge. London, The Land Press. In the words of the binder Jeff Clements: ?The design provides a relationship between disorder and discovery and although abstract in character contains significant symbolic references. Colour is an important factor; blue for clarity of purpose, grey for uncertainty and brown for the spirit of the age in which the stories are set (e.g. panelling, furnishings, clothes and cigars.) The focus of the design is set on the front cover with the oblique intersecting forms disappearing beneath the grey blanket of Victorian fog and including an inset of exotic leather which relates to one story in particular but also the many disguises of Holmes himself. It can be said that the binding provides an atmospheric introduction to these famous stories rather than illustrating a particular aspect? Jeff Clements was president of Designer Bookbinders from 1981 to 1983 and headed the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of the West of England from 1984 to 1988, when he moved to the Netherlands from where he continues to bind and design books. He was honoured with an MBE for services to Bookbinding in the New Year Honours, 2007. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Binding title:] Egypten.[Cairo & Istanbul, ca. 1870-1880]. 3 oblong photo albums (31 x 45 cm), containing 112 stunning photographs of Egypt (mostly measuring: 20.5 x 26.5 cm, some slightly smaller: 20 x 25 cm and some slightly larger: 26.5 x 21 cm), all mounted paperdboard leaves measuring 30 x 42 cm. 49 photos are signed, in the negatives, by Béchard, 35 by Sebah and 28 are unsigned, and several have numbers and titles as well. The photographs in each volume are numbered in a later hand on the leaves (48, "19"[=21], 43). Near contemporary gold-tooled black half morocco; kept in matching half morocco boxes.

      Cf. N. Perez, Focus East (1988); G. Saretzky, History of photography (online). An extensive set of stunning photographs of Egypt by two of the most distinguished photographers of the Islamic world: Henri Béchard and Pascal Sebah. The collection is very well preserved and unusual in its scope. The volumes are thematically divided: the first album shows Cairo and daily life in the city, the second shows antiquities outside the city (pyramids, temples, funeral chambers, hieroglyphics etc.), and the third shows cities other than Cairo, e.g. Karnak, Louqsor, Bal el Molouk, Thebes, Edfou, Assouan, etc., along with ruins and other sites from those places. The photographs therefore not only show us the famous views and antiquities, but also give an acute portrayal of Egypt as a country and its everyday life at the time, which is not common in the usual touristic photo albums.Henri Béchard (active 1870-1880) was awarded the Gold medal at the Universal Exposition in 1878. His studio was in the Ezbekiyeh Gardens, Cairo. "His work is distinguished by the superb quality of his prints and the generally spectacular presentation of even the most common sites, such as the pyramids. His studies of people and costumes are even more interesting and point to a very personal involvement of the photographer in the life and customs of the country. His cityscapes and urban scenes were mostly taken from unusual angles in an attempt to cope with the narrow and confined spaces" (Perez). Pascal Sebah (1823-1886) was a leading photographer based in Constantinople, who catered to the Western European interest in the exotic "Orient" and the growing numbers of tourists visiting the Islamic world who wished to take home images of the city, ancient ruins in the surrounding area, portraits, and local people in traditional costumes. "Sebah rose to prominence because of his well-organized compositions, careful lighting, effective posing, attractive models, great attention to detail, and for the excellent print quality" ( Saretzky ).Only an occasional speck on the album leaves, otherwise a fine copy, with the photographs of a very high quality. The bindings also fine, only the boxes have some very minor wear along the extremities.

All material is related to Williams's celebrated play, Night Must Fall, a psychological thriller, when he became an overnight star. Williams played the lead role of a psychopathic murderer. The play was noted for its exploration of the killer's complex psychological state, a step forward for its genre. It was first performed in 1935 and then made into a film in 1937, 1954, and 1964. The 1937 film by MGM, which starred Robert Montgomery, Rosalind Russell, and Dame Mae Whitty, was named the best film of the year by the National Board of Review. 1 Typed Theatre Script; • Original typed theatre script of A Night Must Fall, SM's copy (stage manager's copy), page size: 7-1/2 x 13 inches, 54 blank pages with SM's handwritten notes and amendments, plus 45 pages with typescript of the play.. Produced by Miles Malleson, the original production of Night Must Fall premiered May 31, 1935, at the Duchess Theatre in London. The formal West End opening was preceded by a preliminary tour of Edinburgh (April 29, 1935), Newcastle and Glasgow. The play ran in London for 436 performances. No date. Presumed a London copy of the typescript for the play based on handwritten notes with British spelling with examples such as "with snaps (photos) and letter". Perfect bound, preliminary leaves nicely repaired, with Williams's signature on a paper label. 4 Books; • Night Must Fall: A Play in Three Acts. London: Victor Gollancz Ltd., 1935. Black cloth, orange label on spine. Signed by Williams on the front free endpaper and by all the cast who are named, apart from Eric Stanley, whose place appears to have been taken by Marcus Barron, whose signature is present. Tipped in is the Duchess Theatre printed label stating that Jack Knight will take Basil Radford's part in Mr. Radford's unavoidable absence. However, Radford has signed where the other cast members have signed, but Jack Knight has not. Apart from a little light foxing to the top edge and fore edge, this is a near fine copy, in a slightly spotted dustwrapper, which shows some neat internal repair, but which is not price clipped. • Night Must Fall. New York: Random House, n.d. 144 pp. Probably a first American edition, with no statement of printing on the copyright page (see below). Inscribed just after the play closed on Broadway by the author and star of the production, "To Vincent, with all the best from Emlyn, New York November 1936." A very good copy in cloth covers with mild edge wear. Dust jacket with edge wear, small edge chips, spine faded. Based on the jacket copy, this edition was published between the close of the British run and the opening of the American production (September 1936). While a sensation in London, with the production running 436 performances, the American run lasted just two months. • Night Must Fall. Samuel French, 1935. 147 pp. Grey, pictorial card. Noticeable foxing, tanning and handling marks with dog-eared corners. Intermittent annotations with inserted file dividers throughout. Tanning along spine with moderate rubbing, foxing and wear over surfaces. Chipping along edges with pencil marking at front and general warping.

        The Virgin and Child in the heavens with Saints

      The Virgin and Child in the heavens adored by St Luke, St Thomas Aquinas, St Petronio of Bologna, and St Jerome(?). Some angels making music on the top right corner. According to the BM (U,5.11) record of an earlier version of the present impression, Simonetta Stagni (1988) associated this engraving with a lost painting described by Malvasia in the Palazzo Comunale in Bologna. On the cartouche held by St Luke "SEQUENTIA / SANCTI EVA/GELII SECUN/DUM LUCAM. / IN ILLO TEM/PORE MISSUS / EST ANGELUS / GABRIEL A", on the book held by the sitting angel on the left: "SI TERRES/TRIA DAET / CELES / TIA" On the bottom, under the picture:"Alli Molti Ill.[ri] Sig[ri]: miei Pro[...] Oss.[mi]si Sig.[ri] Correttore, e Consoli dell'Alm.

        Zweiwochenschrift. Hrsg. von Hans Leybold (Nr. 5 hrsg. von Franz Jung). 1. Jahrg., Hefte 1-5. [Alles Erschienene.]

      Vollständige Folge einer der wichtigsten und seltensten frühexpressionistischen Zeitschriften mit prädadaistischem Impetus. - Nach dem Vorbild der ?Aktion? Pfemferts gedruckt, war die ?Revolution? für kurze Zeit das überregional bekannte Periodikum der Schwabinger Bohème, welche jedoch zunehmend von München nach Berlin zog der Kreis des Cafés Stefanie? fand sich nun im ?Café des Westens? am Kurfürstendamm wieder. Damit markiert die ?Revolution? gewissermaßen den bedeutsamen Endpunkt der Schwabinger Ära (vgl. Franz Jung. Der Weg nach Unten. Hamburg 1988, S. 77 ff.). Von den hierin erschienenen Publikationen gingen wesentliche Impulse für den Expressionismus aus gleichzeitig fanden sich in der ?Revolution? bereits einige Protagonisten des späteren Dadaismus zusammen, namentlich Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Richard Huelsenbeck und Franz Jung. Eröffnet wurde die Reihe mit einer Reflexion über das Wort ?Revolution? von Erich Mühsam. - Die erste Nummer wurde aufgrund des von Hugo Ball verfassten Gedichtes ?Der Gehenkte? konfisziert. - Heft Nummer 5 erschien als Sondernummer für den Anarchisten und Psychoanalytiker Otto Groß, der auf Veranlassung seines Vaters in die Landesirrenanstalt Troppau eingeliefert worden war. Franz Jung erinnerte sich später an die Herausgabe der Sondernummer: ?Ich selbst hatte mir von Johannes R. Becher die Zeitschrift ?Revolution? ausgeborgt, die dieser in München zusammen mit Bachmair herausgab. Ich füllte die Zeitschrift mit Zuschriften und Beiträgen von Dichtern und Schriftstellern aus aller Welt für das Recht des individuellen Erlebens gegen den gefährlichen Starrsinn väterlicher Autorität. Dem Professor wurde die Fähigkeit abgesprochen zu lehren, ein Amt zu bekleiden - eine internationale Schande der Rechtswissenschaft. Zu Studentendemonstrationnen an den österreichischen Universitäten wurde aufgerufen. Nicht genug damit: ich hatte aus dem Grazer Adreßbuch Hunderte von Adressen herausgeschrieben, die Caféhäuser in Graz und Wien, die Universitäten, die Büchereien, die Buchhandlungen... ich habe über 1000 Exemplare der ?Revolution? auf diese Weise versandt [...] Als auch die Kampagne in der österreichischen Öffentlichkeit aufgegriffen wurde [...] gab der Alte klein bei.? (Ebenda, S. 84.) - Hugo Ball schrieb 1915 in seiner ?Totenrede? für Hans Leybold, der sich als Soldat im Ersten Weltkrieg das Leben nahm, über die Herausgabe der fünf Hefte: ?Als die Zeitschrift gegründet war, verlangten die Abonnenten ein Programm. Leybold sprach: ?Wohlan denn, Ihr , wennschon immerhin: Hier habet ihr ein Programm. Und schrieb: ,Kampf gegen Seiendes, für Keimendes. Gegen Kunst - portiere, Kulturportiere, Avenariusse, Scharrelmänner, Obskuranten, Schwärzlinge, Hertlinge, Hohlwege, Panteutschisten, Stagnaten, Kastraten. Gegen literaturbehaftete Oberlehrer, kunstsinnige Kritiker, allgemeine Rundschauer. In summa: Gegen Zuständliches. Und fügte hinzu:Nichtschriftsteller heraus! Keine Literaten sollen gezüchtet werden. Da hatte man die Revolution! Da war sie. 20 Jahre alt war der Kerl. Sehr hurtig. Und paffte einfach drauf los.? (Die weissen Blätter. Jahrg. 2, Heft 4. S. 525.) - Die fünf Nummern enthalten u.a. Beiträge von Hugo Ball, Johannes R. Becher, Ernst Blass, Franz Blei, Max Brod, Leonhard Frank, Iwan Goll, Walter Hasenclever, Emmy Hennings, Kurt Hiller, Jakob van Hoddis, Richard Huelsenbeck, Franz Jung, Klabund, Else Lasker-Schüler, Alfred Lichtenstein, Erich Mühsam, Robert Musil, Karl Otten, Ludwig Rubiner, René Schickele. - Nummer 1 erschien in einer Auflage von 3000 Exemplaren, Nummern 2-5 in 5000 Exemplaren. - Druck in Rot und Schwarz auf holzhaltigem Zeitungspapier.- Hefte partiell mit sehr kleinen Flecken u. Randläsuren. Nr. 1 an Rücken u. Seitenkanten mit kleinen dezenten Restaurierungen u. Buchhandelsstempel, Umschlag von Nr. 1 u. Nr. 4 mit schwachen Notizen in Blei.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Limited Edition Prints

      Four limited edition prints, 17.8 X 24.3cm, by Jonathan Stephenson taken from the original wood-engraved blocks made from Tenniel's drawings for the Alice books. The blocks had only been used to make electrotype copies from which the illustrations were originally printed and hence were completely unworn when discovered in two forgotten deed boxes at the National Westminster Bank in 1985. The printing was limited to 250 sets, with each copy being numbered and bearing the publisher's stamp of authentication. We have four prints from this issue each relating to cats: 1)'The Cat Grinned When it saw Alice 143/250 2)'...and this time it vanished, quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin...' 239/250 3)'The King's argument was, that anything that had a head could be beheaded' 241/250 4)' "Snowdrop, my pet!" she went on, looking over her shoulder at the White Kitten...' 239/250 The prints are all contained within individual slip mounts that have a caption to the front. Together with the prints is the 'Preliminary Announcement' concerning the issue from Macmillan , an invitation to private viewings of the prints in 1988 and 1989 plus the original invoices for three of the four prints.
