        Das englische Haus Entwicklung, Bedingungen, Anlage, Aufbau, Einrichtung und Innenraum KOMPLETT 3 Bde. Band I: Entwicklung des englischen Hauses. Band II: Bedingungen, Anlage, gärtnerische Umgebung, Aufbau und gesundheitliche Einrichtungen des englischen Hauses. Band III: Der Innenraum des englischen Hauses [Gebundene Ausgabe] Hermann Muthesius (Autor) Vorwort Henning Bock Reihe/Serie Architektura Universalis 3 BÄNDE

      Mann (Gebr.), Berlin, 1999. Hermann Muthesius (1861-1926) gehörte vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg zu den wichtigsten Wegbereitern einer modernen, deutschen Kunst. Als Architekt, gefragter Redner und Autor wichtiger Bücher und Aufsätze, als Organisator im Preußischen Handelsministerium und Begründer des Deutschen Werkbundes (1907) beeinflußte er eine ganze Generation im Kampf für eine bessere Zukunft, bis der Erste Weltkrieg viele Illusionen dieser bürgerlichen Revolution zunichte machte und damit auch ihre Träume von einer nationalen, modernen Kunst. Von seinen über 300 Publikationen ist das dreibändige Werk >Das englische Haus< (1. Auflage 1903-1906) das wichtigste, das schon zu seiner Zeit trotz eines horrenden Preises bald neu aufgelegt werden mußte. Aus dem Blickwinkel eines Architekten und Historikers schildert Muthesius die Entwicklung der insularen Architektur seit normannischen Zeiten, immer auch im Hinblick auf die soziologischen Ansprüche der Bauherren und der Gesellschaft. Sein eigentliches Thema aber ist die neue zeitgenössische Architektur in Form und Technik. England war für ihn das große Vorbild, weil es sich als erstes Land in Europa von den Fesseln der industriellen Massenproduktion und stilistischer Beliebigkeit befreit hatte. Das englische Kunstgewerbe seit William Morris und die neueste Hausarchitektur dienten Muthesius als Beispiel einer neuen, modernen Lebensform, von deren Prinzipien Deutschland lernen müsse, ohne sie sklavisch zu kopieren. Das Buch ist daher bis heute ein Kompendium englischer Architektur und Inneneinrichtung ebenso wie eine glänzend geschriebene Zustandsanalyse der deutschen Kunst vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg, von ihren Zielen und ihrem Optimismus.

        The Children's Crusade (No. 23 of the Deluxe Edition)

      London: Enitharmon Press, 1999. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Rego, Paula. Number 23 of 75 copies of the deluxe edition, folio size, [46] pp., signed by Blake Morrison and Paula Rego. Paula Rego (b. 1935), a native of Portugal, studied art at the Slade School, London, where she now mainly lives and works. This work is based, almost unbelievably so, on factual history: "the Children's Crusade of 1212 remains an enigmatic historical episode, recorded in only a few contemporary accounts, but it captured the imagination of the acclaimed painter Paula Rego as a story steeped in imaginative possibilities and contemporary relevance. It touches not only on children's love of adventure but also on darker issues including fears of the unknown, incipient sexuality and exploitation. In his introduction, Blake Morrison brilliantly illuminates Rego's twelve hand-coloured etchings and their relation to the crusade, and the scene is set by two passages from medieval chronicles. The book concludes with an extensive and revealing interview with Paula Rego, in which she explains her fascination with the subject." (N.B., from the website of the publisher.)***DESCRIPTION: Original gray linen covered boards with the illustration "Voices (II)" inlaid to the upper board, fore- and tail-edges uncut, color printed reproductions of the original etchings tipped in; text has been hand-set in Monotype Caslon, printed on Arches Vélin paper, folio size (12.75" by 10"), pagination: [1-6] 7-45 [1 colophon], limited edition, this number 23 of 75 copies of the deluxe edition (total edition 190), signed by Blake Morrison and Paula Rego. Rego's signed original etching "Bait," is laid loose into a wallet in the slipcase; the etching has been printed on 300 gsm Somerset Velvet; the book and the etching are housed in a matching gray linen slipcase with a printed label inlaid to the upper board.***CONDITION: A fine copy; crisp, clean, like new; no prior owner markings, the separate etching also fine, absolutely clean and without wear; the slipcase is fine overall, strong and sturdy, the cloth is unrubbed with no frayed edges; a few minor, stray spots of faint foxing to the case, else fine.***CITATION: Rosenthal, "Paula Rego the Complete Graphic Work", pp. 130-145.***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

        Writing on the Body; Degas's Words about Drawing the Figure

      San Francisco: Pacific Editions, printed at The Greenwood Press, 1999. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Hobson, Charles. Number 35 of 45 copies, quarto size, [19] pp., signed to each plate and to the colophon by Charles Hobson. Edgar Degas (1834-1917) has long been considered one of the greatest of the French impressionists, especially concerning the female body in movement which is given a masterful homage in this intriguing volume. Degas did many monotypes "and in many cases he applied pastel over the ghost version to create a finished piece." Charles Hobson's own masterful pastel and photogravures of the female nude, having a self-proclaimed "lifelong influence" by Degas, are given a loving home beside Degas' words. The text was selected from letters and other material, his words are not only printed typographically on pages facing the plates but overlaid in Degas' actual handwriting to the copper images created by Hobson.***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter rust-red cloth with Degas' handwriting in facsimile to the cloth in black, hand painted paper covered boards illustrated with a reproduction of a Degas drawing, all edges uncut, concertina binding, eight photogravures; BFK Rives paper, Meridien type, quarto size (11.5" by 7.75"), unpaginated [19] pp., limited edition of 45 copies, this number 35, signed to each plate and to the colophon by Charles Hobson.

The text was selected from letters and other material, his words are not only printed typographically on pages facing the plates but overlaid in Degas' actual handwriting to the copper images created by Hobson. ***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter rust-red cloth with Degas' handwriting in facsimile to the cloth in black, hand painted paper covered boards illustrated with a reproduction of a Degas drawing, all edges uncut, concertina binding, eight photogravures; BFK Rives paper, Meridien type, quarto size (11.5" by 7.75"), unpaginated [19] pp., limited edition of 45 copies, this number 35, signed to each plate and to the colophon by Charles Hobson. Housed in a matching cloth slipcase decorated with facsimiles of Degas' writing, a nib pen imprinted with the title is attached to the backstrip. ***CONDITION: Fine copy, like new, in fine slipcase. ***CITATION: Experiments in Navigation, pp. 30-33. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        THE DWELLINGS OF THE PHILOSOPHERS.

      Boulder: 1999. The true identity of the alchemical adept calling himself "Fulcanelli" has never been publicly discovered but there are few who would not recognize his works as the most significant contribution to the Great Art in more than 100 years. The author displays an immense knowledge of the practices of Alchemy and of the Alchemists of the Middle Ages. For for the first time he makes clear the differences between Chemistry, Spagyrics, Archemy, and Alchemy. For many, the most amazing revelation of the book will be the author's review and exhaustive interpretation of the extensive statuary, bas relief, and other artistic devices built into the homes of numerous Medieval Alchemists. These works of art for centuries have revealed openly the secrets of Alchemy to all who have the eyes to see. This long awaited, meticulously translated work from the original French will be of immense benefit to those who seek to understand Alchemy for what it truly is--the art and science of Creation and Transformation of physical form through the agency of Man. With thirty-nine illustrations by Julien Champagne; Translated by Brigitte Donvez and Lionel Perrin; Limited issue of 300 copies bound in leather, though low quality bonded leather, tan marbled end papers and red marking ribbon; 550 pages. Fine condition in very good dust jacket; Jacket has a few small scrapes to the fore-edge.

        REAPER." Original pastel for "Apocalypse Clocks.",

      (Northampton), 1999. - A figure seated within a large clockwork mechanism is drawn by two buffalo reaping wheat. The colors are ochre, orange, vermillion, blues, greens, and purple. Pastel measures 9 1/2 x 13 1/2 and is tipped to a larger mat. Signed "Kuch 1999." Fine. Kuch creates his book images first as pastels or watercolors. They are larger than the engravings. In this pastel all the elements of the final etching are the same; but the colors, and hence the mood, are different. The dark, threatening sky, orange reaping machine, and golden wheat of the pastel become a rain-swept straw-colored sky, black grasses, and a violet reaper in the etching. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
