About this Item

Decorated by Emil Rudolf Weiss[BIBLE IN ENGLISH]. WEISS, Emil Rudolf, designer-decorator. The Four Gospels. The Gospel According to St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke and St. John. With Decorations by E.R. Weiss and an Introduction by Ernest Sutherland Bates. Leipzig: Printed for the Limited Editions Club by Poeschel & Trepte, 1932. Limited to 1500 numbered copies signed by the designer-decorator, this being copy no. 710. Quarto. 237, [3] pp. Decorated section introduction leaves, initials. Publisher's quarter vellum over paper boards. Gilt lettered and ornamented spine. A fine copy. Housed in the publisher's slipcase."Emil Rudolf Weiss stands high in the pantheon of great book artists that includes William Morris, Bruce Rogers and Francis Meynell, among others, but because his work was mostly in Germany, he tends to be less well known in the English speaking world; certainly not much has been written about him or his work in English since the 1930s. Yet he was sufficiently regarded by Stanley Morison to be a guest designer for an issue of The Fleuron; another issue of which included an essay by Morison about Weiss ornaments. His Weiss-Antiqua typeface was particularly popular in the USA, mainly due to the availability for slug casting through Intertype matrices, and the publicity work of the Bauer Type Foundry office in New York. Today, most of us have, perhaps unknowingly, seen the digital version of Weiss roman, if not the original metal version. It remains a popular typeface, particularly in book work where one of its recent outings was on the dust-jacket of the US edition of The Da Vinci Code, and the UK edition of Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen."
