About this Item: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co Ltd, 1897. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. Limited Edition. This book was discovered during a probate valuation. It was tucked away to the rear of a partially hidden shelf. Although the covers had become distressed with age the interior was flawless. The book has now been professionally rebound in quarter Moroccan calf and decorated marbled boards. The spine has five gilt edged raised bands with the title contained between the first and second band in gilt on a black background. The external appearance of the book is now magnificent. The interior of the book is unaltered save for the addition of two endpapers front and rear. The page block has original marbling to all edges. The pages, themselves, are in quite remarkable condition for their age; there are no marks or notations and a complete absence of foxing. Save for the tiniest hint of shading to the edges the pages are pristine on high quality semi-glazed paper. This is by far and away the most impressive copy of this important work that we have encountered. It was limited to an edition of 350 copies; no individual number was noted. The rarity of this book speaks for itself. The images you see are high resolution photographs of the actual book. The book will be dispatched via the Royal Mail in protective packaging. We do not charge postage to buyers within the UK. Those from outside the UK are asked to contact us before purchasing. We offer a 7 day no quibble full refund if the item is not as described and shown. Seller Inventory # 9290

About this Item: Folio Society, London, first edition, 2015, 2015. Limited edition of 980 numbered and 20 lettered copies. From the commentary volume: "The Winchester Psalter is justly famous for its prefatory miniature cycle, expanding across thirty-eight leaves as it sweeps through biblical history. The deftly executed pen drawings accented with tinted wash illustrate scenes from the Old Testament, the lives of Christ and the Virgin Mary, and the Last Judgement. These paintings are ingenious and original in their overall design and execution, with powerfully characterised biblical figures stepping forth to tell their story, and make this manuscript remarkable in a Century that produced a number of the most beautiful and memorable works in the history of English art. On the most elementary level, the Winchester Psalter illustrations provide a cogent introduction to the stories of the Bible. However, to best understand this miniature cycle we need to look first at the principal text to which they are attached, the Old Testament book of Psalms, believed in the Middle Ages to be the work of David, second king of Israel. It is a collection of religious poetry in which one or more individuals address God and express faith in God or longing for nearness to God. God is conceived as a personal God, whose ears are attuned to human needs. God executes justice and protects the weak, the poor and the oppressed. " Copy No. 101. Fine set in publisher's clamshell box with mounted cover illustration. Seller Inventory # ABE-44476

Blocked on front and spine. Inset label depicting the Harrowing of Hell: Folio 24, top panel. Limited to 980 copies, of which this is number 403. One of the first true masterpieces of medieval manuscript illumination, The Winchester Psalter is a jewel of the collection amassed by the great antiquarian Sir Robert Cotton (1570–1631), which formed the basis of the British Library. This 12th-century manuscript is justly famous for the cycle of miniatures depicting scenes from the Old Testament, the lives of Christ and the Virgin Mary, and the Second Coming and Last Judgement, which precede the text of the Book of Psalms. Inspiring, edifying and terrifying in equal measure, the miniatures of The Winchester Psalter represent the pinnacle of English Romanesque manuscript illumination. The turn of the first millennium witnessed a remarkable outpouring of creativity across Europe from artists in all media. Architecture, sculpture, stained glass, painting, manuscript illustration and embroidery all responded to the pre-existing models of classical and Late Antiquity with an extraordinary burst of imagination which combined both deference and independence. This first great movement in medieval art – labelled ‘Romanesque’ by 19th-century scholars for its adoption of features of Roman architecture – flourished until the arrival of Gothic in the 13th century. To accompany this edition there is a new commentary from Kristine Edmondson Haney, Professor Emeritus of Art History at UMASS and author of The Winchester Psalter: An Iconographic Study. A member of Phi Beta Kappa, she has also received both the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship and the National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship.

About this Item: R. & A. Suttaby (Pickering), London, 1863. Hardback. Condition: Very Good. ~FULL TITLE: The Book of Common Prayer, and Administration of the Sacraments, and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the United Church of England and Ireland. Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David, Pointed as they are to be sung or said in Churches ~Original full pebbled black morocco over bevelled boards, blindstamped with gothic tracery. Gilt short title to front board, with gilt cross motif. Gilt ruling to turn-ins. Raised bands to spine, with gilt title and blind-stamped compartments, each containing cross motif. Some wear to boards and spine. Corners bumped. Slight fraying to top spine. Moderate surface wear to raised bands, front hinge and corners. All edges gilt. Original pale yellow endpapers, slightly darkened at edges. Hinges sound. Armorial bookplate of 'Francis Roper Larken' to blank front endpage, as well as brief owner's inscription dated 28.11.38. Unpaginated. Title page printed in red and black. This volume is a reprint of the 1853 Pickering edition of the Book of Common Prayer, with elaborate borders to every page engraved in wood by Mary Byfield (1795-1871). Colophon at the rear of the book reads 'Chiswick Press: - printed by Whittingham and Wilkins, Tooks Court, Chancery Lane': this is the press which printed the 1853 edition. Pickering went bankrupt in 1853-54, and his stock was sold off: it is likely that this edition either consists of original sheets or was printed using the original plates. This edition does not include preface or initial tabular material describing, eg, movable feasts. The 1853 BCP is the masterwork of the engraver Mary Byfield (1795-1871). Byfield worked almost exclusively for the printers Charles Whittingham, nephew and uncle, at the Chiswick Press, who in turn worked closely with the innovative London publisher William Pickering (1796-1854). This collaboration produced some of the most beautifully designed volumes of the Victorian era, much influenced by the study of books obtained from the library of the Duke of Sussex, which had been sold off in 1843. Byfield's borders for this edition, for which she cut over 100 blocks, were adapted from the 1578 'A Booke of Christian Prayers' (reprinted in 1581 & 1590; adapted from the 1569 'Christian prayers and meditations'), commonly known as 'Queen Elizabeth’s prayer book' and a triumph of Elizabethan wood engraving, with illustrations influenced by Holbein and Durer. Byfield worked closely from 'A Booke of Christian Prayers', as evidenced by her sensitive adaptation of the title page Jesse Tree and the frontis portrait of Elizabeth I, but she certainly added (often witty) touches of her own. 'The cuts harmonize perfectly with the type (which is Caslon) and this small volume . is a triumph of printing as well as of illustration and typography.' (McLean 1972, 2). The volume for sale is also a beneficiary of the mid-Victorian enthusiasm for illuminated manuscripts, as it is decorated intermittently throughout by attractive amateur watercolour and gilt illumination of Byfield's wood engravings, by several hands (there are three separate sets of tiny initials, one dated 1872). This hand-colouring thus represents a near-contemporary aesthetic and perhaps devotional response to the text, possibly influenced by the Elizabethan illumination in surviving editions of 'Christian prayers and meditations'. In addition to the title page, where the Jesse Tree has been given a striking gold background, 138 pages have some level of illumination (sometimes minor), of which 48 have the margins completely coloured. Although in a few cases the illuminator has added flourishes to the printed decoration (on one page a charming ladybird has escaped the margin altogether), and some large initial letters have been coloured, the text itself is unaffected. The watercolour and gold decoration is bright and fresh. Seller Inventory # JJ2826
