Munich: Bremer Presse, 1929. Hardcover. Near Fine. Hardcover. Number 237 of 250 copies printed in Germany for Random House. An additional 280 copies were printed for Bremer Presse subscribers. This handsome book provides an excellent example of the fine printing done at the Bremer Presse. The press produced books from 1911 to 1934, with a break during World War I. Stylistically influenced by the English Doves Press, the press was a strong influence on German book art. Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay, "Nature" was written in 1836. In the essay Emerson put forth the foundation of transcendentalism, a belief system that espouses a nontraditional appreciation of nature. Transcendentalism suggests that the divine, or God, suffuses nature, and suggests that reality can be understood by studying nature. Bound in grey, white, and red decorated paper boards with cream vellum spine. Top edge gilt, with deckled fore-edge and bottom edge. Gilt author and title to spine. Letterpress printed on Zanders handmade paper in black and red, with red title and initials designed by Anna Simons. Book in near fine condition with gift inscription on front free endpaper: "To Mona, in the way of German propaganda, devotedly, Rudy New York - Christmas - 1929." With the scarce red paper dust jacket, very good with small repaired tear on bottom edge. Housed in the also scarce red slipcase. One inch piece torn away from the top of spine, nicks at bottom of spine, some rubbing. 86 pages. PI/112017.
