Item Description: The Cresset Press, London, 1930. Hardcover. The Impressive and Sought-After Vellum Version of theCresset Press "Gulliver," with a Complete Set of the Extra Plates. 343 x 235 mm (13 1/2 x 9 1/4"). Two bound volumes plus a portfolio of plates. No. VIII OF 10 COPIES ON ROMAN VELLUM WITH AN EXTRA SET OF THE PLATES ON VELLUM, EACH OF THEM SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Publisher's special russet morocco by Wood of London, raised bands flanked by simple blind tooling extending onto the boards, gilt titling, brass clasps and catches, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt, vellum endleaves. The extra plates housed in silk-covered chemise bound into boards covered with matching morocco. The whole contained in two extremely fine recent morocco-backed felt-lined folding boxes with raised bands and gilt titling, giving the appearance of three book spines. The main volumes with a total of 27 engravings (26 images), as called for: a title page vignette featuring a bust of Swift (appearing in each volume), eight head- and tailpieces, five full-page maps, and 12 DELICATELY HAND-COLORED COPPER-ENGRAVED PLATES (including two frontispieces) BY REX WHISTLER, each within an ornate baroque-style frame, AND WITH AN ADDITIONAL SUITE OF ALL 26 engraved images (the same 12 images that are colored in the main volumes also colored by hand in the extra suite), each of the 26 extra images signed by Whistler and separately matted. Original tissue guards. Ransom, p. 7. Spines of the text and plate volumes rather darkened (though evenly so), the morocco boards covering the plate chemise a bit soiled and somewhat scratched (the scratches well refurbished), but the original deluxe bindings showing almost no other wear and retaining much of their original appeal. Text and plates with only the most trivial of foxing or tonal variations to the vellum, and generally IN VERY FINE CONDITION INTERNALLY. This is the very rare vellum edition of one of the most beautifully printed and attractively illustrated private press books of the 1930s. Inspired by such masters as Watteau, Canoletto, and Boucher, Whistler's work, including the witty drawings here surrounded by rococo frames, recall the 18th century heyday of French book illustration. Horne quotes a 1984 exhibit at the British Museum that says, "This playful essay in 18th century pastiche is, like much fine English book-making of the 1920s and 1930s, aesthetically backward-looking. Whistler's drawings are matched by a text printed in a revival of John Baskerville's 18th century types." Reginald John "Rex" Whistler (1905-44) made a name for himself in mural painting, stage design, and book illustration, and in "Gulliver," his skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align to produce what is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Horne describes him as "one of the most gifted figures of the years between the wars," and laments that his artistic career was brought to a tragically premature end by World War II, during which Whistler died while serving as a tank troop leader in France. The Cresset Press operated between 1927 and 1931 under the direction of Dennis M. Cohen and A. I. Myers, and while its output was small, the books it produced were notable. Presswork was done at the Shakespeare Head Press run by Bernard Newdigate, perhaps the most important name in private press printing between the wars. Besides the present one, only one other copy of the Cresset Press "Gulliver" on vellum seems to have appeared at auction since 1975, and it had only six of the extra plates colored. No. VIII OF 10 COPIES ON ROMAN VELLUM WITH AN EXTRA SET OF THE PLATES ON VELLUM, EACH OF THEM SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Bookseller Inventory # STCBR1201

Item Description: London Cresset Press 1930, 1930. Three quarto volumes. From an edition of 205 copies, this is one of ten printed on Roman vellum. With twelve hand-colored copper-engraved illustrations by Rex Whistler, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and five maps. Also with an extra suite of all the engravings laid into a single volume, each signed by Whistler and individually matted. Whistler’s skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align in this work, which is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Viewing these finely detailed engravings on vellum lends them a dimensionality that cannot be found in the issue on paper. Bound in original full tan morocco by the Wood bindery. Some natural tonal variations to the vellum internally. A fine set of Whistler’s most important illustrated text in the rare vellum issue. Housed in two brown, morocco-backed folding cases.

Item Description: London: The Cresset Press, 1930, 1930. 2 volumes bound in 1, folio. Recent green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, titles to spine gilt, 5 raised bands, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a green cloth solander case. A little mild creasing to spine. An superb copy. Volume I with colour frontispiece and 5 plates, and 2 maps. Volume II with colour frontispiece and 6 plates, 3 maps, and 1 diagram. Head and tail pieces throughout. First Cresset Press edition, first impression. One of 195 copies on handmade paper from a limited edition of 205 numbered copies. The short-lived Cresset Press, co-founded by John Eldred Howard in 1927 and run by Dennis Cohen and A. I. Meyers until 1931, produced fine editions and reprints of the classics and Continental literature. Gulliver's Travels is one of the Press's finest books. The illustrative style of Rex Whistler (1905–1944), eschewing the experimentalism of the 1920s, found its inspiration in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and so was well matched to Swift's classic. In this book Whistler employed his favourite device of setting most of the illustrations within a highly decorative rococo marginal frame. A beautiful copy of this masterpiece of the book arts.

Item Description: Printed for Benj. Motte, London, 1726. Hardcover. 197 x 127 mm (7 3/4 x 5"). Usual misnumbered pages in volume I; 16-page publisher's catalogue at the end of volume II. Two volumes. FIRST EDITION, Third Issue (Teerink's "B" Edition). Quite pretty 19th century speckled calf by Lloyd & Wallis (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt French fillet border, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with central floral sprig surrounded by small tools and floral cornerpieces, one red and one green morocco label, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (in the second state), four maps, and two plans. Front pastedown with bookplate of Mrs. L. Bartlett. Teerink 291; PMM 185; Rothschild 2108. Joints somewhat rubbed and flaked (though not with any cracks), extremities a bit worn, spines uniformly darkened a shade and with a hint of abrasion (the gilt also slightly dulled), minor marks and spots to boards, but the attractively decorated bindings entirely solid and still rather pretty. First volume with variable browning and offsetting throughout, noticeable in two gatherings (perhaps because of washing?), second volume much better, with only a hint of browning right at edges, isolated trivial defects like a rust spot here and there, but the text in both volumes otherwise fresh and clean. This is the third distinct issue (all printed within two months of each other) of the first edition of probably the greatest satire in the English language. A book with the special merit of appealing to readers of every age, the work ostensibly mocks the popular travel writings of the day, but "Gulliver" was in fact a subtle but potent attack on the contemporary political situation. While most works that rely on current fashions and politics quickly become dated, this one has transcended its time to give Swift immortality because of what PMM calls his two great gifts, "a sustained logic in invention and a facility for absorbing the reader till fiction becomes reality." When the first run sold out within a week of its October 28 printing, the publisher immediately went to work to satisfy demand, with two more issues appearing before the end of the year, ours being published in December. FIRST EDITION, Third Issue (Teerink's "B" Edition). Bookseller Inventory # CJH1301

Item Description: 1726. Book Condition: Very Good. [SWIFT, Jonathan]. TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. In FOUR PARTS. By LEMUEL GULLIVER, First a SURGEON, and then a CAPTAIN of several SHIPS. Vol. I.[II.] London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, 1726[-1727]. Mixed first and second edition. Four parts bound in two octavo volumes: xii,148,[vi],164; [vi],155,[1 blank],199,[1 blank]. Engraved frontisportrait of Gulliver in Vol. I in the usual second state, with the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of." on the oval and a Latin inscription on the tablet. Also illustrated with four maps, two plans, and numerous wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary calf boards, expertly rebacked with later matching calf spines and leather labels, all edges stained red. Early ink ownership on front fly-leaf of Vol. I. Boards have gently rounded fore- corners and abraded surfaces. The lower joint of Vol II is starting. Rear endpapers in both volumes are replacements and are slightly toned. Occasional light foxing and/or soling to text, but very good overall. Vol. I is first edition, second printing (Teerink no. 290: first edition state AA) throughout, with all titles, typos, pagination, and signatures as called for. Vol. II is second edition (Teerink no. 293) throughout, with all titles, typos, omissions, pagination, and signatures as called for, including "The Second Edition, Corrected" on the title-page and the facing page of advertisements. Gulliver's Travels was an immediate success upon publication (28 October 1726), requiring many rapid, subsequent printings to meet demand, all of which has led to its bibliographical complexity. For example, the time elapsed between the printing of the two volumes in this set was only six months. And based upon the style, condition, and wear to the bindings of these volumes, they were probably mated at or immediately after publication in 1727. Bookseller Inventory # 84107

(Lowndes 2560. Allibone 2315). Swift, writer and dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, whose Travels is best remembered, and it is the record of his own experience in politics under Queen Anne as an Irishman in what G. B. Shaw called ¿John Bull's other island¿. Its allegorical mode of satire constantly modulates between specific allusions and general types, reflecting characters and events traceable to prototypes in Stuart and Georgian court politics (in Lilliput and Brobdingnag), and to people and events in Swift's own personal life (the king of Brobdingnag as Temple, for example, or the Flying Island as an allegory of English imperialism in Ireland). It also includes moments of farcical low comedy in the Academy of Lagado (part 3) and elsewhere. See ODNB. Bookseller Inventory # 005699
