Small area at top of front joint expertly and invisibly repaired. A fine example.Charles de Sousy Ricketts RA (1866-1931) was a versatile English artist, illustrator, author and printer, and is best known for his work as book designer and typographer from 1896 to 1904 with the Vale Press, and his work in the theatre as a set and costume designer. Ricketts was born in Geneva to a French mother and an English father. He grew up mainly in France and Italy. He began his studies in art at the City and Guilds Technical Art School in Lambeth, in 1882, after both his parents had died. At the Art School he met Charles Shannon (1863-1937), painter and lithographer, who would be his lifelong partner in both his artistic and personal life. On the advice of Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, they settled in England rather than abroad. Ricketts became a celebrated and sought-after designer for the stage. "Mr Ricketts is infallible in his ideas on costume" observed The Times. Plays on which he worked included Oscar Wilde's Salome (1906), Laurence Binyon's Attila (1907), King Lear (1909), Bernard Shaw's The Dark Lady (1910), Arnold Bennett's Judith (1916), Shaw's Annajanska, the Bolshevik Empress (1918), Maurice Maeterlinck's The Betrothal (1920), Shaw's Saint Joan (1924), and Macbeth (1926).

Lilac, purple and cream decorated silk end-papers, all edges gilt. A truly amazing example - Early twentieth century designer bookbinding at its very best?Henry Blackwell (1851-1928), bookbinder and bookseller, bibliographer and biographer, was the son of bookbinder Richard Blackwell of Liverpool whose bindery appeared in the Liverpool & Birkenhead Trades Directory in 1870.Henry emigrated to New York in 1877 where he supervised a large bindery. In 1892 he established hisown shop in New York City. Blackwell played a prominent part in the Welsh-American life of his adopted country. He was a scholar of Welsh literature as well as binding, his 1899 essay, Notes on Bookbinding, was a memorable contribution. He had the largest Welsh Collection of books on this side of the Atlantic, and wrote articles, books and bibliographies about Welsh-American books. In 1893, he commissioned H.T. Sears to engrave a Welsh bookplate for his Welsh books.He also wrote articles about bookplates. He was a member of ex libris societies in America, England, France and Germany. He wrote the Introduction and a chapter on the study and arrangement of bookplates for W.G, Bowdoin's book, The Rise Of The Book-Plate, New York, 1901. His Private Library was sold at The Collectors Club in November 1915."A New Book on Bookbinding? In the coming fall the Briggs Brothers, of Plymouth, Mass., will publish, under the title of "Twentieth Century Cover Designs." an elaborate volume devoted almost exclusively to the work of American binders and artists? Engravings of bindings by Toof & Co., Stikeman, Dudley & Hodge, F.J. Pfister, Henry Blackwell, Emily Preston, Schleuning & Adams, the Club Bindery and a few of the leading foreign binders will illustrate the text." (The American Bookbinder, Volume VI, No. 4, November, 1895, p.127). "Among the binders who now have notable shops in New York City, Henry Blackwell is one." (The Outlook. Volume LXXI, May-August, 1902, p. 258)."The most important of the New York private presses was in a suburb. The Elston Press began in Manhattan in 1900, but its owner, Clark Conwell, moved it to New Rochelle in 1901. Conwell, with the aid of his designer and wife, Helen Marguerite O'Kane, was one of the most brilliant of the Kelmscott disciples. His books exemplify the best in the private press spirit: with traditional models as a point of departure, they achieve freshness of their own. They were printed by handpress in limited editions o.
