        Verzierte gotische Einbände im alten deutschen Sprachgebiet

      Stuttgart, Josef Habbel at Regensburg for Max Hettler Verlag, 1951-1958. Four volumes (26 cm), I (Text, 1951): 159 (1) pp. II (1. Tafelband, 1953): 185 (1) pp. Plates 1-152. III (2. Tafelband, 1956): 137 (1) pp. Plates 153-256. IV (3. Tafelband, 1958): 157 (1) pp. plates 257-364 (altogether, approximately 2400 illustrations). Uniformly bound in collector’s red cloth. - A pioneering work for identifying the bindings of German incunabula, based on the author's systematic investigation of forty-three libraries, mostly in South Germany, where he examined 23,800 volumes. Kyriss identifies 186 groups of tools, each one of which probably represents the equipment of a single bindery; thirty-eight of these are monastic binderies, thirty-two binderies which used a name tool, a small number are binderies signing with initials or arms, and the rest binderies associated with a particular town. "The work takes its place among reference books of outstanding importance... With the aid of these plates it should be possible to localize a high proportion of German gothic bindings" (from a review by Howard Nixon of Bildband II, in The Book Collector, Spring 1957, pp.75-76). ¶ Ownership inscriptions and notes ink on endleaves of the bookbinding historian William Smith Mitchell (1908-1982); his pencilled instructions to his bookbinder on half-titles. Loosely inserted are Mitchell's typescript for a review (for Libri, volume 8, 1958, pp.200-201), and several of his offprints.

        Rain On The Pavements ( J.B. Priestley's Personal Copy)

      The First UK printing published by John Lehmann in 1951. Author's scarce second book. The Book is in Very Good++ or better condition. The boards are clean with some fading to the edges and a small bump to the fore-edge. There is some mild toning to the text block. Mild pushing to the spine tips. The book is tight, clean and free from inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in VERY GOOD++ or better condition. It bears the correct price of 10s 6d. It has some minor edge-wear with associated creasing and rubbing with a little loss to the ends of the spine. The spine is slightly toned but this does not detract from the pictorial wrap around design. The rear panel has mild toning to the edges but less so than usually encountered. Some small closed tears to the spine and flap folds which have been reinforced with a little archival tape to the verso. The wonderful period wrapper artwork is by the renowned artist JOHN MINTON and looks stunning in the Brodart protective cover. John Minton was commissioned to design the wrappers for both of Camberton's books. The book also bears the personal library bookplate of J.B.Priestley to the front pastedown. Priestley was a great supporter of Camberton and was instrumental in gaining recognition for Camberton's first novel 'Scamp'. This is a very scarce association title. There has been much interest in Roland Camberton recently resulting in both his novels now being back in print. The author Iain Sinclair has particularly taken an interest and written on Camberton and his books. Collectible. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        A Collection of Four Novels with Dust-Jackets Designed by Andy Warhol]. [Comprising: Three More Novels, by Ronald Firbank; Love is a Pie, Maude Hutchins; The Desire and Pursuit of the Whole, Baron Corvo; and Borderline Ballads, William Plomer].

      New York New Directions and Noonday Press -1955 1951 - First U.S. editions. 8vo (23 x 15 cm). Publisher's cloth, illustrative dust-jackets designed by Andy Warhol (upper flaps to first and third state 'Jacket design by Andrew Warhol'); age-toning (mostly to last title), minor rubbing to Firbank and Corvo, minor chips to extremities, light stain to rear corner of upper spine of Firbank, small area of tape residue to upper flap from earlier repair and three small closed tears to Corvo. Rare, early examples of Warhol's work. The first three titles are particularly scarce. As a young artist in New York, Warhol created just a few such cover designs. Three More Novels bears Warhol's first published dust-jacket for New Directions and only his second commercially produced jacket, after a Doubleday title earlier in the year. The covers constitute some of Warhol's most underrated work and were made long before the establishment of The Factory; nevertheless, they exemplify many of the innovative techniques for which Warhol came to be known, such as applying ink to paper and then blotting it while still wet. It is also appropriate that these jacket designs appear on books by four authors who were, in their day, themselves provocative: Ronald Firbank (1886 – 1926), an inventive English novelist influenced by the aesthetes of the 1890s whose common themes included religion, social-climbing and sexuality; Maude Hutchins (1899 – 1991), the American novelist best known today for her sexual coming-of-age novel, Victoire; Baron Corvo (Frederick Rolfe, 1860 – 1913), an English writer, artist, photographer and eccentric of notoriety; and William Plomer (1903-73), the South African-British novelist, poet and literary editor, whose first novel, Turbott Wolfe, dealt with interracial love. Warhol's meteoric rise would begin in 1962 with a debut solo show at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[London], 13 July 1951. 2 pp., 8vo, on Coward's letterhead. Folding creases; overall very fine. 5 x 8 inches (12.8 x 20.2 cm).Text, in full: "Darling Marlene, I do not know where you are so I am sending this care of Maria to be forwarded. It is merely to tell you that my blue Alpaca dinner jacket suit is the smartest thing ever seen on land or sea & is one of the loveliest presents I have ever had--and you are a darling duck. Life over here has been highly social but I am putting a stop to all that & am going off to the South of France to stay with Binkie & discuss my new play & various business things. I tried twice to get through to Michael on the telephone but without success. When I get back in August I will try again & will flaunt my blue Alpaca suit under his nose. All my love to you darling & take care of yourself. Noël."From the collection of the family of Marlene Dietrich, a lifelong friend of Noel Coward. Their close relationship began in 1935, when Dietrich called Coward to congratulate him on his film The Scoundrel--he hung up, thinking it was a prank call. They remained friends until Coward's death, often exchanging letters about Dietrich's turbulent love life.

"Blake's etched copperplates, giving the text of his poem and the basis of the designs, were printed by him in a rich orange ink and were then illuminated by hand in water colours and gold. The etched base has now been reproduced by collotype in orange and the prints have then been coloured by hand by a stencilling process, so that the final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates. An average of forty-four applications of water colours was required for each full page illustration, of which there are four. Of the remainder, fifty-one have some text with designs filling half the page or more, and thirty-five have text with small marginal decorations.".

        Documents of Near East Diplomatic History.

      New York, Near and Middle East Studies, School of International Affairs, Columbia University, 1951. - 4to. XV, 332 pp. Published as a typescript printed on one side. Original cloth. An invaluable collection of primary source documents, mostly in English (a few in French), related to international relations and the Middle East. The volume is composed as an aid to students at Columbia University, using documents available from that library only, covering nearly every nation in the Middle East and their relations with European nations. Topics include the texts of commercial and territorial treaties (including regarding the Dardanelles and Bosporus straits), Napoleon's proclamation to the Egyptians, territorial negotiations, proclamations of goodwill and protection of foreign merchants, the Suez Canal concession, regulations for colonies in the region, the Baghdad railroad, the mandate for Palestine, World War I and World War II regional restructuring discussions, etc. Most documents are from the 19th and 20th centuries, with the earliest being "Capitulation with France of February 1535", and the most recent, "Nationalization of the Oil Industry in Iran, 2-30 May 1951." A brief commentary is provided before each document describing context and significance. These papers represent an enormously important work for scholars, students, historians and diplomats, bringing together, as they do, such core reference material. In 1956, Hurewitz would expand this collection to the two-volume publication "Diplomacy in the Near and Middle East: a documentary record". - J. C. Hurewitz (1914-2008) did his graduate work at Columbia, making what was then an unusual decision to concentrate on the Middle East. He worked for the Near East section of the OSS during World War II, then worked successively at the State Department, as a political adviser on Palestine to the President’s cabinet and for the UN secretariat. As a Professor, Hurewitz began studying Middle Eastern politics in 1950, before the field had emerged as an academic discipline. From 1970 until his retirement in 1984, he was director of Columbia's Middle East Institute. - Handwritten ownership (dated Washington, October 1952) on half-title; later in the collection of the professor of oriental studies and Brandeis librarian Miroslav Krek (1924-2014), with his ownership stamp on the reverse.

        Pony Cart, from Summer’s Children

      Morgan & Morgan, Summer’s Children: A Photographic Cycle of Art at Camp, Scarsdale, New York 1951 - Vintage gelatin silver print, negative ca. 1940-50, printed probably by 1951. 39 x 45.2 cm (15-3/8 x 17-3/4 in.), flush-mounted to art board. Titled and annotated in pencil on the verso, with the artist’s hand stamp and “Barbara Morgan – Lensgroup” 424 Madison Avenue stamp (twice). In very good condition, pinprick tack holes at extreme edges, a few generally negligible scuffs and scratches on the print surface, residues of archival hinging tape center edges verso, with a polished mahogany frame 23-3/4 x 26 x 1-1/2 in. After the publication of Summer’s Children in 1951, the New York Public Library mounted an exhibition the next year of a selection of its photographs with “varied panel layouts” (Morgan, Aperture, op. cit., p. [40]). George Eastman House in Rochester followed in 1955 with an exhibition featuring “enlargements with pictorial mobiles” (ibid.), and the Kodak Photographic Information Center at Grand Central Terminal in New York City held yet another significant showing in 1956. The present print was possibly Morgan’s studio copy (with tack holes and lacking her usual signature on a print made for others), and it may relate to these exhibitions, as the penciled annotations on the verso include what may be exhibition numbers and, after the title, the words “(See dup. – mural).” Notwithstanding these prominent exhibitions, Morgan’s book, lauded for her design, remained her preferred presentation. The page of the book (captioned lower right “EVENING BARN CHORES”) on which this image appears exemplifies her juxtapositions. The present image, occupying the principal space of the page upper right, is balanced and reinforced by the right-hand fragment of another image bleeding into the upper left gutter and the detail of a third image cropped into a parallelogram bleeding into the bottom left corner and bottom edge. Berenice Abbot’s review in American Photography observed (op. cit., p. 679): “The creative layout simply fulfills and extends the meaning of the photographs. It derives from the rhythm and mood of the pictures themselves. The variety of each double spread does not destroy the continuity and movement of the book as a whole but builds the necessary dynamic quality, convincing testimony that this is a genuine photographic book. It is also testimony to the ability of Barbara Morgan who designed the layout, typography, jacket and format to best accommodate her pictures. This live sense of structure is organic and lets the full statement of the photographs come through to the spectator – which is all that cropping and layout are supposed to accomplish.” Published: Morgan, Barbara Brooks, Summer’s Children: A Photographic Cycle of Art at Camp, Scarsdale, New York: Morgan & Morgan, 1951, p. 74.
