About this Item: Bernard Quaritch, 15 Piccadilly, 1868. Hardcover. Condition: Used: Very Good. second. Rebound in modern Moroccan burgundy leather. All edges gilt. Gilt spine. 6 raised bands. Fine binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages. Chromolithographic plates. 157 pages illustrations, One hundred and twelve plates. 35 cm. Owen Jones was a London-born architect and designer of Welsh descent. A versatile architect and designer, he was also one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth century. He helped pioneer modern color theory, and his theories on flat patterning and ornament still resonate with contemporary designers today. The first 19 chapters presented key examples of ornament from a number of sources which were diverse both historically and geographically - notably examining the Middle East in the chapters on Arabian, Turkish, Moresque (Alhambra) and Persian ornament. The final chapter, titled "Leaves and Flowers from Nature" acknowledged that "in the best periods of art, all ornament was based upon an observation of the principles which regulate the arrangement of form in nature" and that "true art consists of idealising, and not copying, the forms of nature". Christopher Dresser, Owen Jones' most well-known protege, contributed one of the plates in this final chapter, and he was concurrently presenting theories on natural-form ornament in his famous botanical lectures at the Government School of Design in the mid-1850s. In The Grammar of Ornament, Jones gathered together these samples of ornament as the best examples of decoration in an attempt to encourage designers to follow his lead in examining the underlying principles contained within the broad history of ornament and polychromy.

About this Item: London: Bernard Quaritch, 1910., 1910. "To us today, inundated with photographic references for almost every work of art or kind of decoration in the world, The Grammar of Ornament is still a superb picture-book: but in the 1850s it was the first time in England that anything like so many illustrations or ornament had ever been assembled in colour in on work, and certainly the first time in England that any systematic and serious reproductions in colour of historical ornament had ever been printed, apart from Owen Jones's Alhambra, and works by Digby Wyatt and Noel HumphreysÉOwen Jones's book was by far the most ambitious in scope yet attemptedÉ" (McLean, Victorian Book Design and Colour Printing, pp. 122-4). Folio. [2], 157 pp. Chromolithographic title and 111 chromolithographic plates. Burgundy cloth, with front cover and spine stamped in gilt, expertly recased. Top edges lightly bumped. A very good, bright copy. First published in 1856, this is one of the great monuments in Victorian color printing. Quaritch published subsequent editions in 1868, 1910, and 1928.

Missing 11 plates."The Grammar of Ornament" is by any standards a remarkable book. When it was first published in 1856, it was the first time that so many illustrations of ornament, of many periods and from many countries, had ever been shown in color in one work. It was the concept of Owen Jones (1808-74), a young Welsh architect, who at the age of twenty-three went on his grand tour to visit Turkey, Egypt, Sicily, and Spain. In Granada he became fascinated by the Alhambra Palace, in which at that time visitors could actually choose their own suites of room and take up residence. Jones made detailed drawings of the Palace, and in August 1834, he returned to England carrying not only his drawings, but also an enormous number of casts: "To ensure perfect accuracy, an impression of every ornament throughout the palace was taken, either in plaster or with unsized paper, the low relief of the ornaments of the Alhambra rendering them peculiarly susceptible of this process." Jones' aim was not to produce general artistic views, but to provide scientific accuracy in making an exact and detailed record of ornaments and colored decorations consisting largely of flat bright colors in geometric patterns. He could not find any printer in London able to meet his requirements; with the help of lithographic printers Day and Haghe he set up his own lithographic press and trained his own workmen at his own expense, having to sell part of the Welsh estate left him by his father to pay the costs of printing. Jones' first book, Plans, Details, and Sections of the Alhambra, was the first of many projects leading toward his magnum opus, "The Grammar of Ornament." (Commentary by Ruari McLean.) Some plates with light wear along edges, not affecting images. Plates in overall very good to fine condition. Seller Inventory # 43948

About this Item: Bernard Quaritch, London, 1868. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 13.75" X about 10" in purple cloth with gilt cover decoration. Beveled edges. All edges gilt. Looks as though backstrip started disintegrating, and the volume was professionally restored at some point incorporating some, but not all of the original backstrip. At least VERY GOOD condition throughout. The title page declares that the book contains 112 plates. However, the list of plates gives only 100, and I find only 100 upon inspecting the book. I can't explain the discrepancy. Seller Inventory # F266

About this Item: Bernard Quaritch, London, 1910. Hardcover. Condition: Fair-Good. Reprint. Folio. [4], 25, [1]pp (text), 112 leaves (plates). Original gilt-stamped burgundy cloth, with gold lettering on spine and front cover. Beveled edges. All edges gilt. Chromolithographic title page. "The Grammar of Ornament" is by any standards a remarkable book. When it was first published in 1856, it was the first time that so many illustrations of ornament, of many periods and from many countries, had ever been shown in color in one work. It was the concept of Owen Jones (1808-74), a young Welsh architect, who at the age of twenty-three went on his grand tour to visit Turkey, Egypt, Sicily, and Spain. In Granada he became fascinated by the Alhambra Palace, in which at that time visitors could actually choose their own suites of room and take up residence. Jones made detailed drawings of the Palace, and in August 1834, he returned to England carrying not only his drawings, but also an enormous number of casts: "To ensure perfect accuracy, an impression of every ornament throughout the palace was taken, either in plaster or with unsized paper, the low relief of the ornaments of the Alhambra rendering them peculiarly susceptible of this process." Jones' aim was not to produce general artistic views, but to provide scientific accuracy in making an exact and detailed record of ornaments and colored decorations consisting largely of flat bright colors in geometric patterns. He could not find any printer in London able to meet his requirements; with the help of lithographic printers Day and Haghe he set up his own lithographic press and trained his own workmen at his own expense, having to sell part of the Welsh estate left him by his father to pay the costs of printing. Jones' first book, Plans, Details, and Sections of the Alhambra, was the first of many projects leading toward his magnum opus, "The Grammar of Ornament." (Commentary by Ruari McLean.) This striking volume is complete with its 100 chromolithographic plates. Head of spine and upper front joint torn. Offsetting on endpapers. Minor age-toning along paper margin. Binding in overall poor to fair, interior in good+ to very good, plates in very good condition. Seller Inventory # 38458
