Item Description: Vienna J. de Pian and L. Müller 1842-44, 1842. Folio. 26ff. Twenty-six color lithographs after Jean Baptiste de Pian, printed and finished by hand by the noted Viennese lithographers Leopold Müller, Johann Höfelich and M. R. Toma, each tipped into mounts and matted. Each plate in this series has a large letter of the alphabet fully incorporated as part of the internal decoration or architectural structure of various buildings, set in realistic landscapes. The buildings range from traditional European domestic architecture to exotic Babylonian and Egyptian temples, Moorish mosques, Indian porticoes adorned with stone elephants, and a Chinese palace. The illustrations directly reference many periods and styles of art and architecture, including the Classical, Baroque, Eclectic, Gothic, and Romantic movements. In his essay on Pian's alphabet, Dr. Anton Durstmüller notes that the letters also correspond with architectural elements in the scenes. In one illustration, the letter F forms the shape of a kitchen hearth, which is "Feuerstätte" in German. The illustrations are imaginative and nuanced, with attention to the finest architectural details. Jean Baptiste de Pian, also known as Giovanni Battista de Pian, belonged to a family of Italian artists who immigrated from Venice to Vienna in the late 18th century. Jean Baptiste's father and grandfather were both draughtsmen, painters, and engravers who also worked as set designers for the Imperial Court Theater of Vienna. This set is extremely rare; only one other copy has sold at auction in the last thirty-five years. A facsimile was published in Vienna in 1973, a copy of which accompanies this set. Housed in a blue board folding case. Some imprints slightly shaved, most lower imprints cropped, adhesion abrasion from old matting on a few images, minor marginal soiling, and scattered foxing. With the bookplate of Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow inside the front cover of the box. (Durstmüller, Ein Schmuckalphabet Aus Wien). Bookseller Inventory # 25299

Item Description: N.p. (1845), 1845. Octavo. (26)ff. A manuscript alphabet book of calligraphic paintings, signed by the artist. Includes title page, twenty-four letters, and "Fin." A renowned nineteenth-century Swiss calligrapher and miniature-painter, Midolle executed his alphabets in the gothic style of lettering to resemble the text of a medieval manuscript, and often decorated his work elaborately. Although a leading figure in the field of chromolithography, Midolle also handcolored his work in the fashion of the miniature paintings found in fifteenth-century French illuminated books. Entirely hand drawn, Alphabet Gothique is executed in such a style, with each elaborately detailed letter rendered in bright colors that have retained their vibrancy to a remarkable degree. Multi-colored flowers, birds, and serpents are prevalent as compositional motifs, intertwined with the letters themselves. Bound in brown morocco with a cover design by noted American collector Cornelius Hauck. The design depicts an oak tree in brown and green morocco onlays. The tree is situated behind three arched and spired portals in gilt that suggest a cathedral. The spine also incorporates portions of the design. Gilt dentelles and silk endpapers complete this handsome binding, which is a fitting complement to the exquisite artwork inside. A.e.g. Very fine. (McLean, p. 83). Bookseller Inventory # 20975

(mit ganzseitiger Farbabbildung); Oldenburg/Künstler 170 (mit 2 Abbildungen): "In der schwierigen wirtschaftlichen Situation 1925, in der der Kunsthandel völlig stagnierte, kamen Conrad Felixmüller und seine Frau Londa auf die Idee, dies Bilder-ABC mit einfachen Mitteln in kleiner Auflage im Selbstverlag herzustellen. Sie wollten es unter Ausnützung ihrer Beziehungen, aber auch im Freundeskreis verkaufen. Das Bilderbuch ist. ein sehr persönliches Buch, das Szenen aus der Familie des Künstlers in Holzschnitten und Reimen festhält. Es reiht sich in die Reihe der Künstler-Bilderbücher ein, die Künstler für ihre eigenen Kinder herstellten. Die einfache Herstellungsmethode, bei der Felixmüller alle Arbeitsgänge selbst durchführen oder zumindest überwachen konnte, kam der schwierigen wirtschaftlichen Lage entgegen. Gleichzeitig entspricht sie aber auch dem Anspruch an Ganzheitlichkeit von Produktionsvorgängen, der von vielen politisch engagierten Künstlern jener Zeit formuliert wurde. Die erste der 14 Bildtafeln trägt die Widmung >Für meine Kinder Luca und Titus und für die Kinder meiner Freundefreien< Kunst, die eigene Familie, aber auch Tiere, Zirkus und ferne Länder, wie in anderen ABC-Büchern." - Erste Ausgabe. Eins von 250 (gesamt 350) Exemplaren auf Ingres Papier. Wohl eines der nach Söhn vom Künstler eigenhändig kolorierten "etwa 10 Exemplare". Auf dem Titelblatt handschr. Eintrag in Tinte: "eigenhändig coloriert Conrad Felixmüller". Impressum mit gedrucktem Vermerk: "Unter meiner Aufsicht vom Oberdrucker Zielinski in der Firma F. Emil Boden Dresden im Dezember 1925 gedruckt". Der Umschlagrücken leicht bestoßen, sonst schönes Exemplar mit beiliegender Original-Bestellkarte des Verlages Klotzsche bei Dresden.

Item Description: 1856, 1856. A superb, manuscript wild flower alphabet. The text is by Louise Thomas, of Eyhorne House. Hollingbourne, Kent. The illumination, calligraphy and watercolours are by Lady Strange. An album consisting of a title page illuminated in gold, with indents. 14 leaves of manuscript, illuminated with fine watercolours and very fine calligraphy and gold leaf decoration. The final leaf has 'Lady Strange fecit 1868'. Bound in dark green velvet with red watered silk endpapers. The front board has ornamental, intricate gold brocade decoration. Housed in a green watered silk folder and dark green silk slip case. The whole production is of superior quality and is the finest example we have seen for sale in 40 years. It would appear that Louise Thomas commissioned Lady Strange to execute the work for at least 2 of her daughters, this copy coinciding with the coming of age of her daughter Mary. One is held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (see note below) it is unknown whether or not all the children received such a gift. The date on the V & A example would coincide with her daughter, Louise Charlotte, coming of age. Louise Thomas was born in Dorking in 1810 and married Richard Thomas around 1840. They had five daughters and a son and kept a house which included a footman, a gardener and five servants. Louise lived to the ripe old age of 101. Their children were Ella (1840), Louisa (1844), Bertha (1845) Mary (1847) Richard (1849) and Louise Charlotte 1850). Bookseller Inventory # 42806

Item Description: Cordier, Indosinica, col. 722; STCN (6 copies); Walravens, China illustrata 92; cf. Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 1194-1196; Lust 115 (first edition); Wyatt, "Introduction" in: A new historical relation of the Kingdom of Siam (1966). Second edition, published in the same years as the first, of a comprehensive work on the history of the kingdom of Siam, "Universally regarded as the finest work on seventeenth-century Thailand" (Wyatt). The French diplomat Simon de La Loubère (1642-1729) was appointed as Louis XIV's envoy extraordinary to the court of Siam, and while he stayed in Siam for only three months he diligently and systemically asked questions, "probably stimulated by the Jesuit scientists who accompanied the mission to take more than a passing interest in Siamese cosmology, astronomy, and mathematics" (Lach & Van Kley). Loubère compensated his short stay with a thorough study of earlier writers, referring to twenty-three European authors from Pinto to Gervaise in the first volume and collecting French translations of native works in the second. Besides presenting information on Siam alone, Loubère also incorporates information on India and China and their influence on Siam's past.A third edition appeared in 1700, followed by editions in 1713 and 1714 and it was translated into English in 1693 and into German in 1800.With the armorial bookplate of "Antonius Ernestus Burcardus'' on pastedown. Very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 89QBOS08WBVR

Item Description: Cf. Christie's London, 6 June 2000, lot 23, from the collection of William Foyle, lower left in illustration (horn-book with very similar alphabet leaf); no similar example in Tuer. A late 18th-century horn-book, probably made in the Netherlands or England, in the late 18th century. The only similar example we know was in the collection of William Foyle (1885-1963), described (incorrectly?) as having a manuscript alphabet leaf, and with no date proposed. It was not printed from the same block as the present example, but the lay-out and style of the lettering is nearly identical.The brown colouring of the letters and the yellow colouring of the paper is caused by the old varnish protecting the horn-plate. Original horn-books are extremely rare and much sought after, as no respectable collection of children's books can do without one. In very good condition, with a small hole drilled in the left side of the wooden backing and a few minor stains on the horn and paper. An 18th-century horn-book, remarkably well preserved.

Item Description: Printed for J. Galabin, London, 1786. Octavo, 76 pp.; a very good untrimmed copy in recent quarter calf. English lessons for Omai. Very rare English grammar which records the unique method used to teach English to Omai. The first Polynesian to visit Britain, Omai became an overnight sensation when he arrived in Portsmouth aboard Cook's Adventure on 14 July 1774. He was presented to the king, feted by Fanny Burney, approved by Samuel Johnson, entertained by Mrs Thrale and Lord Sandwich, painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds, and even his rapid mastery of ice skating was reported in the General Evening Post. While Joseph Banks was happy to have Omai tour the celebrity circuit, other, more devout souls recognised his potential to spread the gospel in the Pacific and made particular efforts to improve his religious instruction at the same time as his elocution. William Ellis, himself a missionary, recounts in his Polynesian Researches of 1830 that 'Granville Sharp became acquainted with Mai [Omai], taught him the first principles of writing and, so far as his knowledge of our language allowed, endeavoured to pour light of divine truth into his ignorant and untutored mind. He made such progress in the use of letters, that on his voyage to the South Seas, while staying at the Cape of Good Hope, he wrote a letter to his friend Dr. Solander'. In February 1776 Granville Sharp approached Lord Sandwich, First Lord of the Admiralty, to gain permission to instruct Omai. The method he employed, published here as An English alphabet: for the use of foreigners, was based on his earlier work, A Short treatise on the English tongue, of 1767. The record shows that Sharp tutored Omai regularly for a month, but by 6 April Sharp wrote that 'Omai was so taken up with engagements that I could have no more opportunity of giving him lessons, which were but fifteen in all'. He had taught his pupil the use of English letters and made him sound 'every combination of vowels and consonants that letters are capable of'. Just over a decade after Omai returned to Huahine with Cook, Sharp published An English alphabet, probably in anticipation of a need for such a work in the spread of the gospel in the South Seas. A large portion of the book is devoted to rules for "The Lord's Prayer", the "Creed", the "Ten Commandments", and shorter prayers, all part of Sharp's 'instruction in the first principles of Christian religion'. In any case, it must have been produced in very small numbers, as today it is very scarce indeed. Searches of COPAC and ESTC have revealed only five copies in British libraries and a single copy in the United States (at Yale's Walpole Library). Alston VI, 502 adds a copy at Heidelberg University. A single copy passed through our hands six years ago. Bookseller Inventory # 3411401

Item Description: Published for the Deseret University by Russell Bros. 1868 - 1869, New York, 1868. Hardcover. First edition. Four volume set. 443, 116, 36, 72pp. The Book of Mormon is bound in black cloth with title and Salt Lake Temple gilt stamped on the spine. Selections of the book of Mormon is bound 1/4 blue leather over light blue printed and illustrated boards. First Reader is bound in 1/4 brown cloth over light orange printed and illustrated boards. Second Reader is bound in 1/4 black cloth over tan printed and illustrated boards. All volumes are unusually clean with no foxing and only minor fading to boards and light rubbing to the corners. These four works were the only books published in the Deseret Alphabet. The print runs for the Book of Mormon are usually cited as five-hundred, making this one of the rarer Book of Mormons. The two readers were based on the McGuffey manuals, and were introduced in public schools of the Territory in 1868.The Deseret Alphabet was introduced in 1854 and was created by Parley P. Pratt, Heber C. Kimball and George D. Watt. Made up of thirty-eight characters( apparently it was and partially based on Pitman shorthand) to correlate with basic sounds in the English language, the Deseret Alphabet was intended to be used to help simplify the principles of the English language. The Deseret News announced in its issue of January 19, 1854, "The Board [of Regents] have held frequent sittings this winter, with the sanguine hope of simplifying the English Language, and especially its orthography. After many fruitless attempts to render the common alphabet of the day subservient to their purpose, they found it expedient to invent an entirely new and original set of characters." Although only a written language, Brigham Young had high hopes for the new language, firmly believing it would unite the many foreign converts that were streaming into Utah from Europe. The creation of the language was one of the more unusual ideas of Brigham Young, and never was fully embraced by the Mormons. The Deseret Alphabet was abandoned shortly after Young's death.

Item Description: Chicago, Illinois IL, 1900. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Very Fine. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. On offer is an absolutely remarkable handwritten manuscript work of tremendous depth, researched, written and compiled by John C.C. Clarke, A.M, titled "ALPHABETS OF THE WORLD." This book is his original unpublished manuscript and details the alphabets of the world from ancient times; Egyptian hieroglyphics, Egyptian hieratic, Egyptian Demotic, or Enchorial, Egyptian Comparative Tables, Coptic (Egyptian), Ancient Libyan, modern Libyan, Southern Arabic and so on. 479 pp but not all pages are full since Mr. Clarke left space between chapters and spare pages if he overwrote. The work is complete as per the author's handwritten notes. The author has signed the last page stating it is wholly executed and listing the sections of the book for which he claims originality. Scholars and historians of world languages will find this work priceless for its remarkable detail and depth. An added bonus is a wealth of ephemera being newspaper articles about the author and his work. As mentioned the author states "This book, on this date is wholly executed .Sep 21, 1900" as if in preparation for publishing [though it never was]. On the last page Mr. Clark provides a concise biography: he was born in Providence R.I. in 1833. He was a Phi Beta Kappa and got his A.B. and M.A. from the University of Rochester (1859, and 1866). He earned his doctorate in 1894 from Bellevue College of the University of Omaha. He was a professor at the University of Chicago from 1865 to 1867. He was a Professor of Greek, Modern Languages and Hebrew at various colleges - see photo. He was a pastor in Yonkers, NY, also Chicago and Cincinnati. He wrote three books - The Origin and Varieties of the Semitic Alphabet (Chicago, 1884, 20 pages of plates); Man and his Divine Father (Chicago 1900) and Revelation Rediscovered (Chicago 1905). There are many citations throughout this work which provide a valuable bibliography and footnotes. This large leather gilt edged and titled book is in MINT condition as it has been stored in cloth and boxed for nearly 110 years. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Autograph. Bookseller Inventory # 000705

Item Description: Congregation de Propaganda Fide,, Rome, Vatican, 1636. Oblong 8vo (110x170mm). Contemporary plain vellum. All pages within double woodcut border lines. 12 lvs. (Collation: A-C4). Extremely rare original and complete set, published without a title-page, of a collection of 12 very interesting type specimens, printed at the Printing Office of the Congregation de Propaganda Fide at the Vatican. The collection drew on earlier Roman publications of a similar vein: it reprised for example material from Angelo Rocca's Variarum linguarum alphabeta et inventores (Rome 1595), Giacomo Bonaventure Scozese's Virga aurea (Rome 1616), and Athenasius Kircher' Prodromus Copticus sive Aegyptiacus (1636). The famous Jesuit Athenasius Kircher devoted half of his eighth chapter of his Prodromus - ostensibly concerned with the usefulness of Coptic - to an enigmatic inscription that had been discovered by Thomaso Obicini at the foot of Mt. Horeb in the Sinai. Although it did not pertain to Coptic or anything Egyptian, Kircher announced that he would be remiss not to discuss it. Kircher described how he brought to bear his philological expertise by trying to match the inscription's characters with three oriental languages, Hebrew, Samaritan, and Syriac. According to Kircher the inscription was written in a form of ancient Chaldean. It concerns our nr. 8.In the collection are three alphabets of Adam, the first from the Vatican Library, the second by Giacomo Bonaventura Scozese, the third by Lorenzo Schrader; 4 Hebrew alphabets, the first 'detto soprasilvio', the second 'detto testo', the third designed by Garamond and the fourth Rabbinic by Garamond, the above mentioned script discovered by Tomaso da Novara at the foot of Mont Horeb, an analysis of the same by Athanasius Kircher, Samaritan and Estrangelo alphabets, and a Chaldean alphabet. Established in 1626 for the propaganda of the Catholic faith among the Eastern peoples, the 'Propaganda fide', has published many texts in exotic, oriental alphabets.

Item Description: Dublin: The Dolmen Press, November 1954 – March 1960, 1960. 12 pamphlets housed loosely in the original paper wrappers. Occasional minor creases. An excellent set. Rare complete set of the Dolmen chapbooks in the original paper wrappers. "The idea behind the Dolmen chapbooks was to print short texts with illustrations, using various type formats and techniques within a uniform page size The series gives a fair picture of the very personal interests which informed the Press at this time, and several of the titles were issued in other formats" (Miller 17). The set of twelve pamphlets is divided into three groups of four, each with a paper wrapper, and with the series wrapper enclosing the complete set. Most of the individual pamphlets were published in editions of only 250, and complete sets are extremely uncommon. Miller 17. Bookseller Inventory # 79449

Item Description: Cheloniidae Press, Easthampton, MA, 2014. One of 10 copies, (+5 AP copies) all on Winsor Newton 90# Watercolor paper Hotpress paper, each copy signed and numbered by the artist, Alan James Robinson. Page size: 5 x 8.5 inches; 38pp. Bound by Peter Geraty at Praxis Bindery: accordion style with yellow cloth over boards, title stamped in gold gilt on front panel, housed in custom-made green cloth over boards clamshell box, with title stamped on front cover of slipcase. Designed by Alan James Robinson, using lettering design by Suzanne Moore originally created for A FOWL ALPHABET, the alphabet is represented by American wildflowers and their attendant insects with the titlepage, colophon and letters of the alphabet and common names of the flowers printed giclee on an Epson 9890 Giclee Printer. The 26 wildflowers and 2 butterflies are done free hand (serving as the template for the giclee edition). The wildflowers range from Red Clover to Ladyslipper to Jack-in- the-Pulpit to Knotweed and include bees, hummingbirds, spiders, and butterflies. The colors are so strong and vibrant; they belie the usual notion of etiolated watercolors. The artist, who draws with color, mixes transparent and opaque watercolors in glazing and uses pure watercolor in antique drawing pen nibs resulting in a preciseness and detail not often associated with watercolor. The alphabet in cherry red, but does not overpower the floral images; rather it boldly introduces them. Botanically accurate, these colorful, common beauties of the plant world will seem familiar, but no less welcome, to the viewer / reader. Their common names are printed in blue. This is the first book from Alan James Robinson in several years. It is lovely and true to the natural world which has always inspired this artist. See an Image. Bookseller Inventory # 10471

Item Description: Paris. Éditions Antoine Roche. 1932., 1932. First edition. 26 Photo Plates. Small square quarto, original stiff photographic self-wrappers. 26 Fototafeln, von bester Erhaltung, marginaler Rostdurchschlag auf Höhe der Klammerung. Erstausgabe des Fotoklassikers. Sougez setzt mit den Fotografien von Alltagsgegenständen ein einerseits lyrisches, andererseits neusachliches Kinderbuchprojekt um. "During the 1930s.publishers showed great enterprise in employing photography to illustrate books for children, commissioning some of the finest photographers and utilizing the medium in both a realistic and a fantastic way." Wie schon in seinem revolutionären Fotobuch "Regarde", das im gleichen Jahr erschienen ist, nutzt E.S. einfache Alltagsgegenstände um sein Alphabet zu illustrieren (s.a. Parr/Badger I, S. 102). Alphabet ist im Gegensatz zu Regarde von größter Seltenheit: es bleibt daher zu vermuten, daß nicht viele Eltern als Käufer dieses progessiven und sachlich-kühlen Kinderbuches agierten. First edition of Emmanuel Sougez’ influential photobook, with 26 finely screened black-and-white photogravures printed on heavy card stock—"precise, elegant and lyrical" images illustrating the letters of the alphabet (Parr & Badger). "During the 1930s publishers showed great enterprise in employing photography to illustrate books for children, commissioning some of the finest photographers and utilizing the medium in both a realistic and a fantastic way." As in his groundbreaking children’s photobook Regarde!, published the same year, Emmanuel Sougez uses "simple but effective photographs of everyday things"—here to illustrate the letters of the alphabet. "Precise, elegant and lyrical, these images constitute a model modernist project, being ideal vehicles for showing anyone, not just children, how to look at and appreciate the beauty that is all around us" (Parr & Badger I:102). A contemporary of Brassaï and a "leading exponent of post-pictorialist photographie pure, a movement similar to Neue Sachlichkeit," in 1926 Sougez (1889-1972) founded the photographic department of L’Illustration, and throughout his influential career "excelled at rigorously composed, large-format still lifes," such as those seen here (Lenman, 591) Near fine.
