81 Shakespeare, William. THE SONNETS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. TRANSCRIBED IN THE SWEET ROMAN HAND.
London Cassell 1988 0304321710 / 9780304321711 Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good Tom Gourdie. 
154 sonnets (one per page) + alphabetical listing of sonnets. Oblong (5 5/8" H x 8 5/8" D). "Shakespeare's sonnets, were they all that he had ever written, would have ensured him immortality. Read by every succeeding generation, they continue to challenge, stimulate, and sometimes mystify. The calligrapher Tom Gourdie, fascinated by the beauty of Shakespeare's language, has matched his own mastery of letterforms to the poet's mastery of words and has handscripted the 154 sonnets in a fluent, dramatic italic style, drawn with a beautiful craftsmanship. Each sonnet is begun with a unique decorative initial, in a rich, contrasting red. Calligraphers everywhere will welcome this rare example of their art, and will want to use it as inspiration for their own work. In Tom Gourdie's fine presentation of this book, truly a labour of love, Shakespeare's sonnets take on a new vitality and can be read afresh, a pleasure both to the eye and to the spirit." Very small soft bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, minor rubbing.

"This book demonstrates how two strains of influence - the resurgence of Classicsim and the impact of 'pri mitivism' on Western culture - provide links between Symbolism, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism and the birth of Modernism. Certain polarities generated by these two different strains - tradition versus innovation, Western versus non-Western c u l t u r e , t he timelessness of myth versus the experience of modern life - were driven by ideas that developed formalist parallels. This can be seen in the struggle between the figurative and abstract in art, and in the contrast between the pa st or al i dy ll a n d the contemporary landscape...."

(It) forms a fascinating study of various painters, writers and musicians, chosen by Sir Osbert as being characteristic of their age, in themselves, or in their fame or lack of it. In these pages we meet with names familiar and unfamiliar, with Lytton-Strachey, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Sir Edmund Gosse, Ronald Firbank, that singular character and often delightful writer, Sickert, the great painter, Reginald Farrer, who discovered many beautiful new plants in China and Tibet, Rex Whister, the illustrator, draughsman and stage designer, Bernard van Dieren, the remarkable composer, Violet Gordon Woodhouse, the virtuoso of harpsichord and clavichord, with Arnold Bennett, W.H. Davies, Ada Leverson, wit and friend of Oscar Wilde's, and Wilfred Owen, a remarkable poet whose life was tragically cut short. Through his study of his various friends or acquaintances, we see constantly the reflection of the author; a presence ubiquitous, for we perceive these men and women with his eyes, and look at him with theirs."

WALTER CRANE., Spencer, Isobel.
86 Spencer, Isobel. WALTER CRANE.
New York Macmillan 1975 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Walter Crane. 
208 pp, 11 1/8" H. B&w and colour illustrations. "More than any other artist of the time Walter Crane appears at the center of the great surge of interest in the decorative arts in the late nineteenth century. He was the driving force behind the Arts and Crafts movement, a children's book illustrator, designer of textiles, tiles, stained glass and ceramics, and a painter who enjoyed a reputation on the Continent as the most popular of the Pre-Raphaelites. Long before his name came to be associated with Kate Greenaway and Randolph Caldecott as the outstanding artists for the nursery, his brightly colored series of Toy Books ensured him a wide reputation. His fame led to commissions for nursery wallpaper, and from there to fabrics, ceramics, mosaic, stained glass, and gesso relief. As President of the Art Workers' Guild Exhibition Society he was a more strenuous advocate of the Arts and Crafts movement than his friend, William Morris, and traveled abroad with his work, specifically helping the formation of an American Arts and Crafts movement. Crane's early paintings embody the romantic medievalism of Rossetti and Burne-Jones, but he soon used poetry and painting as a means to express his growing interest in new philosophical ideas. Ultimately he was converted to socialism - a cause he embraced wholeheartedly, becoming a member of the Social Democratic Federation, the Fabians, and Morris's Socialist League. He gladly made his art servant to his beliefs, producing political cartoons and trade union banners. This is the first major study of Crane's life and work to be published since his death in 1915. Isobel Spencer, a past lecturer in the history of art at Glasgow College of Art, includes in her scholarly study of the man and his work the full range of Crane's many artistic activities." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small bump at top corners of boards, tiny dent on bottom edge of rear board. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning at top inside edge.

88 Stech, V.V. Translated by Roberta Finlayson Samsour. BAROQUE SCULPTURE.
Spring Books, London, nd. 
195 pp, large square 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour plates. "One of the most fascinating periods in European art history, the Baroque marks a triumphant break with the rules and restrictive for mulas of the Renaissance. Its genius was Bernini, whose sustained imaginative powers and incredible technical skill brought the Baroque style to its fullest maturity. In lesser hands, where the mastery of technique was not so assured and the cr e a t ive imagination not so well disciplined, the pitfalls are all too obvious. No style perhaps has ever captured the imagination quite so quickly; throughout Europe commissions poured in, wealthy landowners and rich merchants vying with each oth er t o express their ambitions and achievements in building, painting and sculpture, in itself an interesting sidelight on social history. The Czech lands were no exception, and the variety and high level of achievement in the contemporary Baroque st yle a re amply illustrated by the plates in this present volume. The accompanying text supplies a full documentation of Czech sculpture of the period and discusses in detail a number of important artists whose work deserves to be more widely k nown ." Boa rds are slightly faded at edges, small store label on front pastedown, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has a few small closed tears, light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, some minor soiling on front pane l, mi nor bro wning on flap edges, protected in mylar sleeve.

London Jonathan Cape 2007 0224078755 / 9780224078757 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- 
496 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w plates. "The first full-scale biography of one of Britain's most important twentieth-century painters. Edward Burra never followed fashion: in the thirties, when modern art was dominated by abstraction and landscape, he painted people; in the sixites, when landscape was completely out of fashion, he started to find it interesting. His life was an unusual one: profoundly disabled, he lived with his parents, and was in constant pain. Only when he was painting could he forget his body. At the same time he was a man with a rich and full life. He was a letter-writer of genius, writing every afternoon to a wide circle of friends. His letters are camp, witty, full of the energy and delight in life which he could not express physically. Inventive, entertaining, and extraordinarily original, his writing expresses a man who combined profound personal loyalty with distaste for any kind of emotional grandstanding." Very small bump to top corner of both boards, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small shallow bump on rear board. Dust jacket has wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor edge wear, small shallow bump on rear panel.

(This book) documents the work and influence of these four notables of the avant-garde who startle and delight us even today...Richly illustrated and beautifully designed, this volume is a feast for the eyes and the intellect. It is published on the occasion of the exhibition...organized by The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C. America's first modern art museum."

160 pp, 4to (12" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w and color photographs. "(T)he first comprehensive exploration of Blumenfeld's work, (this book) forms a uniquely detailed study of her development. Dividing her sculpture into eight themed chapters, it concentrates on the major ideas and technical concerns that have preoccupied the artist from the beginning: Two Sides of a Woman; Creation; Metamorphosis; Options; Shadow Figures; Dreams; Souls; and, finally, Mythology. Early and recent works are illustrated side by side, highlighting the aesthetic and conceptual growth which has earned her respect from critics and collectors throughout Europe and the United States. (Upson's) text illuminates Blumenfeld's intense working methods and reveals how her life - divided between Italy, where she works, England, where she now lives, and the United States, where she was born - contributes to her creativity. Each chapter provides an introduction to the individual pieces, a review of Blumenfeld's contribution to twentieth-century sculpture, and concludes with Blumenfeld's own thought-provoking comments on her work."
