Bremer Press] IPHIGENIE AUF TAURIS
Munich: Bremer Press, 1922. Limited Edition, number 152 of 300 copies. Vellum Binding. Quarto. Bound as issued in parchment over boards with the perimeter of boards and spine compartments ruled in gold; light soiling to the vellum binding, but largely an attractive and clean copy; top edge gilt; very light thumb soiling to the colophon page. The Bremer Press took as its model Emery Walker and Cobden-Sanderson's Doves Press--elegantly designed books with a focus on typography. Title and initials in this and most of the Press's books were designed by Anna Simons who was trained by noted English calligrapher Edward Johnston. Yet another connection to the Doves Press, the binding is stamp-signed by Frieda Thiersch who learned her trade from Charles F. Mcleish of the Doves Bindery. Thiersch became a notable bookbinder and designed and executed many of the Bremer Press bindings and was the director of the bindery until 1933 when she opened her own workshop. An interesting aside, Thiersch would go on to bind some of the most important documents and books for Hitler and the Third Reich. Text in German. Ransom 12; Gerald Cinamon ?"German Graphic Designers?"; Luise Poulton, ?"The Feminine Touch?" (2009).
