Item Description: Alexandria, Imprimerie orientale et française, an VI [1798]., 1798. Small 4to. 16 pp. Modern brown half calf with red label to giltstamped spine, bound to style. The first book ever printed in Egypt, unquestionably the rarest and most important of the early books printed in the Middle East, published in the very year when modern printing was introduced to the Arab world. Only in October 1798 did J. J. Marcel arrive in Cairo with his employees and types to organize the Imprimerie Orientale. "The expedition of Napoleon Bonaparte to Egypt from 1798 until 1801 was a prelude to modernity. It was to change permanently the traditional Arab world [.] The French brought Arabic typography to Egypt, where it was practised under the supervision [.] of Jean Joseph Marcel [.]. Only a few days after the French troops landed [.] they set up the Imprimerie Orientale et Française there. It was an extraordinarily important turning point. For, leaving aside the Hebrew printing presses in Egypt of the 16th to the 18th centuries, until this date announcements and news adressed to Arabs there, as well as in other parts of the Arab-Islamic world, had been spread only in hand-writing or orally, by criers, preachers or storytellers" (Glass/Roper). - Slightly spotty in places, but well preserved. No copy in auction records or in libraries within the Arab world. Geiss, Imprimerie en Égypte, p. 146, no. 1. D. Glass/G. Roper, The Printing of Arabic Books in the Arab World, in: Middle Eastern Languages and the Print Revolution (Gutenberg Museum Mainz 2002), p. 177-225, at 182. Querard V, 506. Bigmore/Wyman, II, 22.

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: Np, ca. 1840), 1840. 9 1/4 x 11 3/4. 120 pages. The album is comprised of 12 alphabets of 25 letters (there is no "W") on rectos of thick, smooth paper. There are also a title page, an index, and 10 section titles preceeding the ten major alphabets of ornamented initials. These are lettered in black & red and signed "par Beauvalet St. Victor." The other 2 alphabets are single leaves of simple initial letters (Lombardic caps) written in red, outlined in gold. Bound in full wine morocco (upper joint lightly rubbed) in Medieval style, ca. 1896 for J. E. Woodhead. Fine, in felt-lined slipcase. Saint-Victor's watercolored & gilded letters are his own creations, derived from Medieval sources. Many shimmer with metallic colors from a process the artist invented. The letters are all majuscules (Onciales du 9e au 11e siecles, 12e siecle, 12e au 14e siecles; Gothiques Ornˇes, Anglais Ornˇes, Majuscules d'Eglise, d'Eglise Ornˇe, Alphabet de Romain Droit Ornˇ et Ombrˇ, and (in a closing crescendo) Majuscules Choisies Ornˇs 12e au 14e. Letters are variously one, two, or 4 to a page, separated by a gilt rules. Saint-Victor is best known for two works. The first is a practical manual of 280 pages published in 1835, "Aquarelle-Miniature Perfectionnˇe reflets mˇtallique et chatoyans et peintre a l'huile sur velous en six le¨ons." (A copy, mising a few illustrations, accompanies this Album.) The artist describes his technique for stencilling watercolors from pigment recipes that produced lustrous effects, then finishing them by hand. The other is the extremely rare "Vases Grecs et Etrusques" illustrated from stencils and "peints d'apres sa nouvelle decouverte metallique." We have not been able to locate another album such as this. Woodhead was a prominent c19 Chicago businessman. His name is stamped in gilt at base of spine; he has penciled his name in tiny letters and the date '96 at top corner of title page. Bookseller Inventory # 14275

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

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: 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: Copley Galleries, Beverly Hills, CA, 1948. First Edition. First Edition. One of 500 copies issued. INSCRIBED by the author and artist on the front endpaper: "For Charlotte [Bebe] and Louis Barron. Cordially, Man Ray, Hollywood, 1949." An exceptional avant-garde association. Around this time the Barrons were beginning to experiment with committing electronic sounds as music to magnetic tape, and were ultimately not only pioneers in that field, but its inventors. One year after the date of this inscription, they would compose their first piece, "Heavenly Menagerie," and they would go on to produce the first electronic film score, for the seminal 1956 science fiction film, "Forbidden Planet" (credited as "tonalities" rather than "music" at the time, due to union rules). The Barrons' earliest compositions were slow and laborious, as their early work preceded the digital age, and involved building circuits and tape splicing to create even the smallest sequences of sound. In the decades that followed, electronic composition has become a worldwide phenomenon in every musical category. A tremendous association between pioneers in two major fields of twentieth century artistic endeavor. Bookseller Inventory # 119735

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: 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: 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. Nahezu verlagsfrisch. Bookseller Inventory # 43987BB
