About this Item: Romanische Miniaturen und Initialen in höchster Kunstfertigkeit. Der Werdener Psalter gehört zu den bedeutenden und weithin berühmten mittelalterlichen Prachthandschriften aus dem Besitz der Staatsbibliothek Preußischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin. Aufgrund seiner verschwenderischen Ausstattung wird er auch »Luxuspsalter« genannt und legt ein glanzvolles Zeugnis mittelalterlicher Buchkunst ab. Entstanden ist der Codex in Werden, wo der hl. Liudger, Bischof von Münster, um 800 ein Kloster gegründet hatte. Diese Benediktinerabtei erlebte im 11. Jh. eine Blütezeit, sodass der Werdener Psalter als der künstlerische Ausdruck eines selbstbewussten Klosters angesehen werden darf. Die Handschrift enthält ein Psalterium in ungewöhnlicher Textgestalt. Inhalt und künstlerischer Schmuck des Werdener Psalters sind von hohem Rang und in allen Teilen bemerkenswert. Es sind sowohl die großartigen Miniaturen, die immer wieder bewundert worden sind, als auch die buchkünstlerisch überaus bedeutsamen Initialen, Zierseiten und Ziertitel sowie die Schrift, die allesamt eine unvergleichliche Einheit bilden. Alle 150 Psalmen sowie die nachfolgenden Cantica glänzen mit großen Initialen aus Gold- und Silberranken. Dazu kommen noch besonders hervorstechende Zierzeilen auf Purpurhintergrund mit abwechselnd goldenen und silbernen Majuskeln. Der Text ist absatzlos in einer regelmäßigen, eleganten, spätkarolingischen Minuskel geschrieben. Wirkungsvoll sind jedoch die Versanfänge hervorgehoben, die durch kleine Purpurquadrate mit ebenfalls goldenen und silbernen Buchstaben in der feierlichen Auszeichnungsschrift gekennzeichnet sind. Die insgesamt 190 Rankeninitialen selbst bestehen teils aus geometrisch geführten Bändern, häufiger jedoch aus Pflanzenteilen. Architekturen, Drachen, Vögel, Hunde und auch Darstellungen von Menschen bereichern das Rankenwerk der Zierbuchstaben und machen sie zu phantasievollen Miniaturen. All dies verleiht dem Werk in seiner Gesamtheit den Eindruck von kostbarer Pracht, wie wir sie nur von wenigen Handschriften kennen. Die Handschrift wird von einem reich verzierten Ledereinband geschützt, der nicht der ursprüngliche Einband ist, sondern aus der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jh.s stammt. Separater Kommentar von H. Knaus, Darmstadt. Vollständige farbige Faksimile-Ausgabe der 237 Seiten (118 Blatt + 1 Seite) im Originalformat 25,4 x 17,5_cm. 6 ganzseitige Miniatur- und Zierseiten, 190 große, meist goldene und silberne Initialen. Einband: Ganzleder, Kopie des Originaleinbandes. Alle Blätter sind dem Original entsprechend randbeschnitten. Faksimile in Leinenschuber. Aufl. 765 Expl. (Standard-Ausg.). Mit leichten Mängeln.

An Introduction to the Knowledge of Rare: Dibdin, Thomas Frognall

About this Item: Harding & Lepard, London, 1827. Two octavo volumes. xiii, 562; 579pp. Fourth edition, greatly enlarged and corrected. Inscribed by the book collector and businessman Albert M. Todd of Kalamazoo, Michigan, to noted librarian William Warner Bishop, who was head of the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan from 1915-1941 and president of the American Library Association from 1918-1919. In the inscription, Todd writes, "To my dear friend William Warner Bishop who has aided me so greatly with his advice on selecting many valuable books for my library." Todd's travels in Europe as a young man inspired a lifelong passion for collecting rare books. He established the Rare Book Room at Kalamazoo College's Upjohn Library, and much of his collection of books was donated to the library by his family. With a facsimile plate of Complutensian Polyglot as a frontispiece to the first volume. The fourth edition of Dibdin is considered the best and most complete and is a valuable reference resource for collectors, scholars, and librarians alike. Bound in quarter calf and green paper-covered boards, with horizontal blind rules across the spine and gilt dots on either side of these rules, in an Arts & Crafts style. Some offsetting to title page of volume one from the frontispiece plate, margins of covers lightly sunned, some light spotting and rubbing to spines, slight split between endpaper and half-title page and also between the final two pages in volume one, collector's notes in pencil to blank leaf at end of volume one, else a very nice set with notable provenance. Top edges green. Seller Inventory # 24570

About this Item: Pr. for the committee [by De Vinne Press], New York, 1893. When the Book of Common Prayer was revised in 1892, a first edition of five impressions (including the "standard edition") was immediately printed by the De Vinne Press. These differed in material and decoration, and this fourth, in folio, on paper, and with Art Nouveau borders designed by Daniel Updike and Bertram Goodhue, was sumptuous. Produced in 525 copies only, for subscribers and for presentation to designated libraries, its glory was exceeded only by that of the one-copy impression done from its same setting but entirely on vellum for the General Convention itself. The floral borders Updike produced for these pages vary with the season, feast, or service of the Church. For example, Ash Wednesday has a border of hyssop and Easter a border of lilies. The borders vary in richness according to the dignity of the feast or service being celebrated, and many of the borders incorporate scrolls inscribed with Latin quotations from Benedicite Omnia Opera Domini Domino, with a few from elsewhere in the the Prayer Book or the Bible. Provenance: There is a gift inscription on the front pastedown: "To the Rev. Hugh G.E. Crosby from the Warwick family with gratitude." Binding: Publisher's vellum over bevelled boards, front cover and spine ornately gilt-stamped and with heavy brass clasps. Gilt-stamped endpapers. The binding and endpapers are in a neo-gothic design by Bertram Goodhue and incorporate the first verse of the Benedicite, as well as employing rose and thistle badges and a rose pattern to denote the English and Scottish origins of the American Episcopal Church. Upper edge gilt, tail and fore-edge deckled. Affixed to one of the rear fly-leaves is: Updike, Daniel Berkeley. On the decorations of the limited edition of the standard prayer book of MDCCCXCII. New York: Pr. at the De Vinne Press, 1893. 4to (25.5 cm, 10"). [2] ff. Folio (37 cm, 14.63"). [14] ff., 566 pp., [1 (tailpiece and publisher's colophon)] f. Griffiths, Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer, 1893.7; Gewirtz, But one Use, 96. Bound as above, corners bumped and vellum variably soil-darkened, rear cover with several long scrapes and front one with a few short and unobtrusive ones; front free endpaper chipped and discolored at points where it "took" pressure from the latches. Paper across hinges (inside) cracked, but binding strongly holding; to text, the odd spot of foxing or light soil only. The leaflet by Updike describing his work here is present, "tabbed" in at top left corner, with some discoloration to backing paper. => A very handsome book in a decent, pleasing, "good used" condition that makes it relatively affordable, with the pamphlet on the decorations.

About this Item: Pub. for John Reeves (pr. by W. Bulmer), London, 1802. There were minor differences between the Prayer Books of the Church of England and the Church of Ireland up until 1801, the year that the churches merged; the various 1801 BCPs were the first to use the "United Church" designation. John Reeves had been appointed king's printer in 1800, and edited his own version of the BCP, of which this is the second edition; the separate title-page following the preliminary matter is dated 1801. (That preliminary matter, offering historical and liturgical commentary, is extensive and interesting.) Fore-edge: This beautiful example bears a subtly shaded => fore-edge painting showing Westminster Abbey in the background behind a waterfront view with sailboats. Binding: Full straight-grain dark olive green morocco, covers framed in elegant feather and pearl twist gilt roll, turn-ins with floral gilt roll. Stone-pattern marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. 8vo (24 cm, 9.5"). vi, [694] pp. Griffiths, Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer, 1802/1. Binding as above, mild rubbing overall with some abraded areas consolidated, joints and extremities subtly repaired, aesthetically appropriate endbands supplied. Title-page with inked ownership inscription dated 1803, "The gift of my beloved husband." Intermittent faint spots of foxing, mostly confined to early leaves. One inked marginal annotation in an early hand, three psalms (145?47) with small inked emphasis marks, pages otherwise clean. Seller Inventory # 28715
