Book Description The Caxton Club, Chicago, 1999. Soft Cover. Condition: New. Limited Edition. First Printing. Limited Edition (only 500 copies). Publisher's glossy wraps. Profusely illustrated with color photographs. This is a catalogue published by The Caxton Club of Chicago in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the Caxton Club and held from November 29, 1999 to January 10, 2000 at the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries at The Art Institute of Chicago. The dust jackets in the exhibition, all printed between 1920 and 1950, are historically significant. Some depict scenes of Chicago; some were designed by Chicago-based graphic artists; and some were published by Chicago firms. They reveal trends in book design and illustrate a rich period of publishing in the Midwest's leading metropolis. "The book jacket's rise to prominence during the 1920s was part of a general expansion of the publishing business in North America," writes Victor Margolin, professor of art history at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who is the author of the Introduction to the catalogue. The volume is in perfect, pristine condition, unmarked, tight, square and clean. NEW. Color Photographs. 4to 11" - 13" tall. 12 pp. Seller Inventory # 26909

Book Description The Caxton Club, Chicago, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. 214 pages. Hardcover, no dustjacket (as issued). New Book BOOKS ON BOOKS. The idea for Other People's Books was conceived in 2007 when Steve Tomashefsky, then President of the Caxton Club, actively supported a project to create a collection of essays revealing the stories behind association copies. Even earlier, Caxton Club members recognized the importance of provenance during its exhibition of "books interesting through their associations," in 1896. This enthusiasm for association copies continued to grow even outside of the Caxton Club as newspapers such as The New York Times began publishing articles related to these unique pedigree books. Other People's Books provides stories of fifty-two presentation copies from 1470 to 1986, narrating how each book came to be inscribed. Containing 112 illustrations, this work is a lively historical account of the journey of twenty-four books from institutional collections and twenty-eight from private hands. Set in England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden, and the United States, these books range in topics from astronomy, ornithology, political science, and psychology, to art, film, history, and literature. While many of the books are presentation inscriptions directly from the author, others were inscribed by someone who was closely connected with the author. The book highlights the owners of these volumes now, many of whom are famous names in literature and history or book scholars and collectors. This book is a creation of the Caxton Club, an organization of collectors, publishers, designers, and librarians. Many Caxton Club members worked together to assemble this work, with a jury of members hand-picking the fifty-two essays seen in this collection. They edited, designed, and indexed the book. Submission requests were made to numerous book organizations across North America, as well as to curators of university library special collections. (Key Words: Books on Books, G. Thomas Tanselle, The Caxton Club). book. Seller Inventory # 72596X10
