        Siamese hymnal.Phetchaburi (in Thailand), Samuel Gamble McFarland, 1876. 8vo. With Western round-head letterpress music notation. Set in Thai type with incidental roman. This copy with the letterpress presentation slip on blue paper tipped in (from McFarland and his wife), for people who contributed to the project. Contemporary half tanned sheepskin, probably bound for presentation.

      Cf. KVK & WorldCat (4 copies of the 2nd issue); not in Cordier, Indosinica; for the history of the presses: J.F. Coakley, “Printing offices of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions ...”, in: Harvard Library Bulletin IX (1998), pp. 5-34, at pp. 26-27. Very rare first edition (first issue) of McFarland's Thai (Siamese) hymnal, one of the first books printed by the mission press at Phetchaburi (Petchabury) in Thailand, with the 86 hymns selected by donors who contributed at least five dollars for the production of the hymnal. Each hymn appears on a single double-page spread (with the music at the head of the left page) except the last, whose text continues on nine additional pages. The texts of the hymns themselves appear only in Thai, but the title, introductory note and hymn titles also appear in English and each hymn gives the name of the person or organisation that selected it in English only. Some of the donors who selected the hymns lived in Thailand (both Europeans and natives) but most lived in the United States. Each hymn also indicates the metre, either with abbreviations for the common, long, short, hallelujah or particular metre, or with an indication of the number of syllables per line. The music was apparently set and electrotyped by J.M. Armstrong in Philadelphia and the electrotype blocks shipped to Phetchaburi for printing, for the Newberry Library copy of the second issue has a manuscript note "Music typography by J.M. Armstrong, Philadelphia, Pa.".With the title-page somewhat browned, water stains in the head margin and occasional minor foxing or small smudges, but generally in good condition. The binding with some scuff marks and stains, the head and foot of the spine damaged and the endleaf with the presentation slip detached, but otherwise good and structurally sound.

      Tiele, Bibl. 310; cf. Atabey 338; Blackmer 471; Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 1998; Meulenaere, pp. 62-64. First and only Dutch edition of a popular travelogue written in a lively style by Baron Dominique-Vivant Denon (1747-1825), describing his explorations in the Lower and Upper part of Egypt during the campaign of Napoleon Bonaparte (1799-1801). Protected by the French troops, Denon was able to explore the country extensively. As a result, his travel account was the first important scientific fruit of Napoleon's Egyptian campaign. The detailed illustrations primarily depict archaeological sites, ruins and monuments with bass-reliefs and hieroglyphs from the Thebaid region, and prompted the Egyptian Revival in architecture and art.Bindings slightly chafed, one hinge a bit worn, and some occasional minor spots. In very good condition.

        15 Kyoto Gardens

      Poestenkill, NY: Kaldewey Press, 1998. Kaldewey, Gunnar. Quarto. 28pp., frenchfold. One of forty copies, signed by the author/artist/printer, Gunnar Kaldewey. This book is inspired by the notion of "nature as art," and was created after Kaldewey spent three months living in a traditional Japanese wooden house in Kyoto, studying the art of the Japanese garden as the seasons changed from winter to summer. The first text page poetically states: "Books are like gardens that one can carry/around; gardens are like books that one can/experience, promenade through or get lost..." Kaldewey has captured the finest details of nature in his prints of lime and silver, with borders in black. Text printed in orange on transparent, smaller octavo-sized sheets, which appear intermittently throughout the illustrations. Bound in green Kozo paper-over-boards, with two little stones from the Japanese game of Go mounted to the cover and surrounded by gold foil and a clear plastic frame. Housed in a paper chemise and matching slipcase. Small stain to bottom edge of slipcase, else very fine. (Von Lucius, pp. 99-101).

        FOUR WOOD ENGRAVINGS MADE BY ERIC RAVILIOUS IN 1933 FOR THE GOLDEN HOURS PRESS' FAMOUS TRAGEDY OF THE RICH JEW OF MALTA

      [West Yorkshire]: The Fleece Press, [1998]. A LIMITED PRINTING OF ONLY 120 SETS. RARE in the marketplace. Four prints pressed from the original 1933 woodblocks by artist Eric Ravilious, and with a leaf of text additional. 10.5" x 8" leaves, laid into a portfolio of cream paper printed in red and black. A pristine set, as perfect and mint. FIRST EDITION AND ONE OF ONLY 120 SETS PRODUCED, PRINTED FROM THE ORIGINAL 1933 WOODBLOCKS FROM THE ESTATE OF THE ARTIST. Ravilious engraved more than 400 illustrations and drew over 40 lithographic designs for books and publications during his relatively short lifetime. His first commission, in 1926, was to illustrate a novel for Jonathan Cape. He went on to produce work both for large companies such as the Lanston Corporation, but less commercially he was noticed by several of the Private Presses and produced small-run editions for publishers such as the Golden Cockerel Press (for whom he illustrated an edition of Twelfth Night),the Curwen Press, the Cresset Press, and the Golden Hours Press, whose RICH JEW OF MALTA was printed in a run of only 250 copies. In 1942, while serving as a war artist, he died when the aircraft he was in was lost in the North Sea.

Shapero, 1998. - 2 volumes, folio (335 x 235mm), pp. I: [8], 372, [4 (blank)]; II: [4], 373-757, [3 (blank)]; colour-printed illustrations in the text, many full-page; original red boards, lettered and decorated in gilt, light-brown endpapers; a fine set.First and only edition, limited to 750 sets. A comprehensive catalogue of Sefik E. Atabey's remarkable library of some 1,370 pre-1854 books, manuscripts, and maps relating to the Ottoman Empire and the Middle East. Each item is carefully described and annotated, and the catalogue is supplemented by indices of authors, editors, artists, engravers, binders, and subscribers; selected places and subject; and the titles of anonymous publications.The work is an important addition to the reference literature on the subject, and can be considered complementary to Navari's earlier Greece and the Levant: the Catalogue of the Henry Myron Blackmer Collection (London: 1989). The collection (which was sold en bloc in the late 1990s) was particularly notable for the number of works it contained from celebrated libraries, including those of Britwell Court, the duc de La Rochefoucauld at Roche-Guyon, the Duke of Portland, the Duke of Marlborough, the Earls Fitzwilliam, Charles X of France, and Czar Nicholas I of Russia (a number in fine armorial bindings), which are identified in the separate index of provenances.
