Buchbeschreibung: Gross-4to (435 x 330 mm) und Gross-Folio (695 x 520 mm). Mit gestochenem Frontispiz und 96 Kupfertafeln in den 9 Textbänden und im Grossfolio-Tafelband (A Collection of Prints from Pictures Painted for the Purpose of Illustrating the Dramatic Works of Shakespeare) je 2 Frontispize, 2 grosse Titelvignetten und zusammen 96 Kupfertafeln, nach Reynolds, Smirke, Northcote, Füssli, Hamilton, Kauffmann, Bunbury, Porter, Stothard, Opie, Westall u.a. radiert von W. Angus, William Blake, R. Earlom, J. Fittler, J. Hogg und T. Milton. Blaue Maroquinbände, mit reicher Deckel- und Rückenvergoldung des aus Westfalen stammenden Londonder Meisterbinders [Friedrich] L[eberecht] Staggemeier (1759-1827), Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, Goldschnitt. London, Printed by W. Bulmer and Co., Shakespeare Printing-Office, for John and Josiah Boydell, George and W. Nicol, from the types of W. Martin, [1791-] 1802-03 [-1805]. Monumentale Shakespeare-Ausgabe im luxuriösen Prachtexemplar aus der Bibliothek von Eugène de Beauharnais (1781-1824), Adoptivsohn Napoléon Bonapartes. Dreiunddreissig der renommiertesten Maler Englands, darunter Sir Joshua Reynolds, Robert Smirke, William Hamilton, Francis Wheatley und die beiden aus der Schweiz stammenden Johann Heinrich Füssli (Henry Fuseli) und Angelika Kauffmann, schufen für das grossartige Projekt seit 1786 insgesamt 167 Gemälde mit Szenendarstellungen zu Shakespeares Dramen. Die im Mai 1789 eröffnete Bildergalerie wurde schnell zu einem Publikumsagnet. Im Zentrum der Unternehmung des Londoner Kupferstechers und Verlegers John Boydell (1719-1804) stand aber die aufwändige und kostspielige Edition der nach den Oelgemälden radierten Kupfer, die die neunbändige, von George Steevens betreute Textausgabe im Quartformat illustrieren, und zusätzlich in grösseren Radierungen und ohne Text in zwei Grossfolio-Tafelbänden aufgelegt wurden. Die Hoffnung des Verlegers und seines Partners und Neffen Josiah Boydell (1752-1817), auf der Basis der unsterblichen Theaterstücke Shakespeares eine nationale englische Historienmalerei zu begründen und zu fördern sollte sich nicht erfüllen. Um die Eleganz von Druck und Ausstattung der auf grösstmöglicher Textgenauigkeit beruhenden Edition zu gewährleisten, wurde kein Aufwand gescheut. Gemäss dem 1786 aufgelegten Prospekt wurde eine eigene Druckerei geplant und neue Drucktypen und Druckerschwärze geschaffen. Die glanzvolle Ausgabe fand denn auch nicht nur in England viele Bewunderer, darunter auch Goethe, sie leistete zudem einen bedeutenden Beitrag zur Neuinterpretation der Dichtung Shakespeares zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts und blieb "auch wirkunsgeschichtlich von grosser Bedeutung" (Hammerschmidt-Hummel). Die erste, für die kleinformatigeren Textbände bestimmte Lieferung von Kupfertafeln erschien 1791, die letzte im Dezember 1804. "Boydell would have two sets of engravings made: large ones to be gathered in an imperial folio album without text; small ones to be incorporated in George Steeven's edition of the text. To avoid duplication of the paintings in these two series, Boydell began in 1794 to commission separate designs for the small engravings. The promised edition of Shakespeare as well as separate volumes of prints appeared between 1791 and 1805" (Frederick Burwick). Einheitlich gebundene Exemplare aller elf (in zehn) Bände wie vorliegend sind von allergrösster Seltenheit, viele Bibliotheken besitzen entweder die Textbände oder nur die beiden Tafelbände allein. Unser Exemplar aus der Werkstatt des aus Westfalen stammenden Londoner Meisterbinders Friedrich Leberecht Staggemeier (17591827) wurde höchst wahrscheinlich für die begeisterten Bücher- und Bildersammler Eugène de Beauharnais und seine Gemahlin Auguste Amalie gebunden. Die in Süddeutschland gehütete Bibliothek Eugène de Beauharnais wurde 1935 in unserem Hause verauktioniert, als Nr. 290 auch dieses wunderbare Exemplar, das von dem Schweizer Papierfabrikanten Gustav Eisenmann-Riel (1887-1966) für dessen bibliophile Ehe.

Buchbeschreibung: Bernard Lintot [1709], London, 1709. Hardcover. First Edition. The first issue, having the four sub-titles dated 1630, 1632, 1599, and 1599 respectively, of the Second Edition of Shakespeare's Poems after the very scarce 1640 edition and the first to include VENUS AND ADONIS and THE RAPE OF LUCRECE. Small octavo (4" x 6-3/4") bound by Riviere and Son in a full gilt-decorated early 20th century brown morocco original Cosway binding with recessed panels on front and rear with inset oval watercolor miniatures on ivory by C.B. Currie under glass (signed on the front pastedown) with the Henry Sotheran imprint at the bottom of the verso of the front free endpaper; (4), 155 pages. Inserted is a page with the following printed information: "This is No. 893 of the Cosway Bindings invented by J. H. Stonehouse, with Miniatures on Ivory by Miss Currie." Both Stonehouse and Currie have SIGNED the page at the bottom. The book was beautifully rebacked in the past decade or so with a new spine that blends quite well with the covers. The Currie miniature at the front is after the Droeshout Portrait (1622) of Shakespeare used as the frontispiece to the First Folio. The rear miniature is a depiction of Venus and Adonis. Cosway bindings--named after the leading miniaturist of the Regency period, Richard Cosway (1742-1821)--were introduced in the early 1900s by John H.Stonehouse of Henry Sotheran & Company who conceived embedding miniature paintings in the covers of elaborately-tooled bindings. Harrison teamed with the Riviere bindery to create the bindings after his designs. Riviere hired Miss C. B. Currie to create the delicate miniature paintings on ivory inset into the covers and protected by thin panes of glass. Much imitated since, original Cosway bindings such as this, particularly when on a book of some importance, are highly desired. At some point the volume suffered some water damage which is now most visible on the endpapers and first and last few pages of the text as well as slight damage to the portrait of Shakespeare. Still a beautiful binding on a rare and important book in overall Very Good condition. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 017373

Buchbeschreibung: 21st Editions, South Dennis, Massachusetts, 2006. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Fine. Limited Edition. In 2006, fine press photography book publisher 21st Editions released The Sonnets of Shakespeare. Limited to 65 copies worldwide, the hand-bound collection contains 11 original platinum prints (ten bound and one free-standing platinum print entitled, El Mundo, Suiza that is suitable for framing). Each print is initialed by Flor Guarduno with the free standing photograph signed in full on the rectro. This copy, 4 of 65, was presented to Lance Speer, 21st Editions Contributing Editor and Director of Marketing, upon completion of the project. Each signed and numbered copy of The Sonnets of Shakespeare is hand-bound and printed in on hand-made paper. Measuring 16 x 16 inches, this gorgeous handmade volume is bound in hand-made paper with a leather spine and along with the free-standing platinum print is housed in a custom clamshell box. The book is signed and numbered by Flor Garduno, John Wood (who wrote the introduction), and the publisher, Steven Albahari on the limitation page. A Letter of Provenance from Lance Speer is included. The book, clamshell case, and prints are in pristine condition. From the introduction by John Wood, "Flor Garduño is most well-known for her intense, deeply moving images from Latin America and her elegant but erotic nudes. The most distinctive quality of her work is its genuine freshness. It is the mark of a great artist to be able to look at what we all know and have seen yet give us something new, something we have never seen before. To be able to do it with the nude and with native peoples, two of the most overworked and, therefore, most dif¿cult subjects in photography, demonstrates not only genius but an inventiveness seldom encountered. Most photographers do not see through their own eyes but create work that looks like the work of other photographers. They may possess considerable technique and craft, but what is missing is a distinct style, a singular voice, an original vision. Seeing with one¿s own eyes is one of the most difficult tasks for any artist but especially the photographic artist because every photographer's head is filled with tens of thousands of photographs she or he has seen. The question is how one can see afresh in the midst of so much visual clutter ¿ wonderful clutter, of course ¿ Le Gray, Le Secq, Watkins, O'Sullivan, Coburn, Kühn, Weston, Sudek, Hosoe, Witkin, and on and on ¿ but clutter none-the-less. There is, of course, no easy way to discover or shape an original Vision. That is the gift no teacher can give.". Signed by Author(s). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 000041

Buchbeschreibung: Stratford-Upon-Avon The Shakespeare Head Press for Basil Blackwell 1928, 1928. 8 volumes. RARE LIMITED EDITION, ONE OF ONLY 100 COPIES, printed on handmade paper, numbered and SIGNED by the illustrator Thomas Lowinsky Decorations throughout consisting of portraits within headpieces by Thomas Lowinsky. Large 8vo, very handsomely bound in the publisher’s best bindings of three quarter black levant morocco by Morley of Oxford, the spines with wide bands with multiple gilt rules, handsomely gilt lettered in three compartments, t.e.g. A very fine set, very handsome indeed and in wonderful condition. RARE FIRST EDITION, BEST ISSUE OF THE SHAKESPEARE HEAD PLUTARCH, LIMITED TO ONLY 100 COPIES SIGNED BY THE ILLUSTRATOR. This edition was printed from the first edition of 1579. Lowinsky's portrait head-pieces are taken so far as possible from authentic originals. A handsomely printed set of North's classic translation. In this monumental historical work, Plutarch relates the lives of the historically important Greeks and Romans of ancient times. His studies are revered as among the most important and beautiful of all classical writings . The author’s object is to bring out the moral character in each case, rather than to relate the political events of the time; in essence, at times he will distort the truth in order to exemplify virtue or vice. Nonetheless, he is as reliable as the sources he uses, and very valuable as a historical resource. Thomas North’s translation of Plutarch’s LIVES is one of the most famous. His prose considered by many to be "incomparable. [his] achievement in narrative prose is only less signal than Shakespeare's in dramatic verse. North's Plutarch is also well-known as a primary source for the plots of Shakespeare's classical plays and for numerous passages in the non-Roman ones, and he relied almost exclusively on it for the historical background of ancient Rome. Thus it is a very fitting work for the Shakespeare Head Press to have undertaken at Stratford-Upon-Avon. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 24392

Buchbeschreibung: University Press Cambridge, 1923. 8vo., First Edition thus, with a portrait frontispiece in photogravure (original tissue guard present) and title in red and black; original limp brown cloth, upper cover blocked in blind, backstrip lettered in gilt, covers very lightly creased else a very good, bright, clean copy, now housed in custom-made solander case. THIS IS PAUL SCOFIELD'S PERSONAL COPY, USED BY HIM IN PLAYING THE ROLE OF DON ADRIANO DE ARMADO IN PETER BROOK'S PRODUCTION AT THE SHKEAPEARE MEMORIAL THEATRE STRATFORD IN 1946. IT IS SIGNED AND DATED BY SCOFIELD ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER AND BEARS NUMEROUS STAGE DIRECTIONS AND ANNOTATIONS IN HIS HAND. Peter Brook's production of Love's Labour's Lost was premiered in the 1946 Stratford Festival where it began its run on 26 April. Starring Hugh Griffith and David King-Wood, the cast included 24 year-old Scofield in the role of Don Adriano de Armado (the 'fantastical Spaniard') and Donald Sinden as Dumain. The cast also included Scofield's wife Joy Parker. ARMADO'S SCENES (MOST NOTABLY ACT I SCENE 2, ACT III SCENE 1 AND ACT V SCENE 2) ARE ANNOTATED WITH THE RELEVANT STAGE DIRECTIONS IN SCOFIELD'S HAND. Paul Scofield (1922-2008) was one of the most famous classical actors of his generation. Noted for his striking presence and distinctive delivery, he was often compared to Laurence Olivier. In a career spanning over six decades, he is probably best remembered for his Oscar-winning portrayal of Sir Thomas More in Fred Zinneman's 1966 film of Robert Bolt's play 'A Man for All Seasons'. Scofield later repeated this role on Broadway, where he won a Tony award - one of only eight actors to win both the Tony and the Oscar awards for the same role on stage and film. In 2004 a poll of actors of the Royal Shakespeare Company, including Ian McKellen, Janet Suzman, Donald Sinden, Ian Richardson, Antony Sher and Corin Redgrave, acclaimed Scofield's Lear as the greatest Shakespearean performance ever. Scofield declined a knighthood no fewer than three times, but was appointed CBE in 1956 and CH in 2001. A SPLENDID AND IMPORTANT PIECE OF THEATRE HISTORY, AND A NOTABLY PERSONAL ITEM OF MEMORABILIA FROM THE EARLY CAREER OF ONE OF THE GREATEST SHAKESPEAREAN ACTORS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY.
