[Zurich,] gedruckt bei J.J.Ulrich, 1842; 4to; 8pp. with engraved plate, and large folding coloured lithograph; publisher's printed wrappers, printed within a decorative border; scattered light foxing and slight water-stain to lower margin of text and of the plain plate. A monograph on the 12th Century Cistercian monastery at Kappel, but primarily on its contemporary and later connections with the von Eschenbachs and the vicissitudes of that family, including under the names of Schnabelburg or Schwarzenberg. The uncoloured plate is a copper-engraved view of the church by Hegi, The folding lithograph, finely coloured by hand, illustrates the first page of this monograph, according to which the early medieval church was originally famous for its over 60 stained or painted glass windows, though only six survived to the time of this publication. The plate shows all nine panels of a single window, at its centre the Crucifixion.

The Works of William Hogarth
0. 1821. (Including "The Analysis of Beauty"), elucidated by Descriptions Critical, Moral, and Historical .. to which is prefixed Some Account of his Life. Two volumes, London, R.Scholey, 1821; vi, [vi], 203, [iv], 96pp. + " The Analysis of Beauty" with unnumbered pages, with title-page vignettes and 86 plates; nineteenth-century half deep blue morocco over blue marbled boards, blue marbled endpapers, rebacked with matching buckram; slight rubbing to extremities of the boards and one or two small chips, marginal loss to Plate IX, but a well-bound set, professionally repaired, the contents clean. One of several handbooks to the engraved versions of Hogarth's paintings which appeared after his lifetime. Plates 54 and 55 have not been bound in, and the letterpress for "Before and After" implies they may have been deliberately omitted; there is no plate 84, but this is probably not called for, as the letterpress at this point directs the reader to the title-page vignette for the illustration; the numeration of the plates is eccentric, with plates one would expect in the first volume bound [correctly] in the second, but the plates are otherwise complete. The pages of "The Analysis of Beauty" are unnumbered, but page numbers are given in the margins of the text. apparently referring to the pagination of the first edition.This is a very interesting association copy. The front paste-down of each volume bears a decorative bookplate by Provost Blondel (Paris) of a flowery wreath with interwined initials we have not deciphered and the motto "Jamais Cesder". Inscriptions on the bookplates show that the book once belonged to the English author W.Somerset Maugham, and that he gave it as a present to the American writer Glenway Wescott. Wescott, a friend of Katherine Anne Porter and Thornton Wilder as well as of Maugham, was a widely read and admired novelist in the first half of the twentieth century, and lived in Paris for much of his life. He presented this set to the art historian Edgar Wind, who had fled Germany and had posts in the United States in the 1940s (he later became the first Professor of the History of Art at Oxford.) The inscriptions, all written in ink in the margins of the ex-libris, read: "Edgar Wind ex dono Glenway Wescott ex dono W.Somerset Maugham" and "with G.W.'s affection to E.W. - and thanks for his analyses of the spring of 1942 -".

The Comic Almanac.
0. An Ephemeris in Jest and Earnest. A COMPLETE SET, comprising 19 volumes, all first editions, and in the ORIGINAL WRAPPERS or original flexible cloth, London, Tilt & Bogue [later David Bogue], 1835 - 1853. Over the 19 years of its publication, the Comic Almanac, enjoyed various editors, including the pseudonymous "Rigdum Funnidos", Henry Mayhew, and Robert B. Brough, and experienced a reduction in format from octavo to duodecimo in the years 1848 and 1849. The stiff paper wrappers with designs by Cruikshank finally gave way in 1850 to stiff gilt-decorated cloth-covered wrappers. What never changed was the inclusion of twelve etched plates by George Cruikshank in each issue, as well as black-and-white illustrations in the text by various hands. Larger folding frontispieces, also by Cruikshank, etched and finely coloured by hand, were added from the year 1850. The etchings for "The Comic Almanac" reflect his close observation of Victorian society and those for the earlier issues are considered some of his best work. The spines of the first seven volumes are worn, with a little loss, particularly at head and foot, though the lettering is largely present; the rear wrapper of the 1840 volume is loose; the next six volumes have been very neatly, professionally rebacked using old material, either paper or fine-grained cloth, and match the plain spines of the last volumes' original cloth. There are two or three contemporary ownership entries, and a few pencil entries for 1843. The contents are in good condition, though there is slight spotting and browning to the edges of the plates from 1843 to 1847. It is very rarely that a complete series in the original ephemeral bindings is offered.

The English Watch 1585-1970 a Unique Alliance of Art, Design and Inventive Genius
. size: 300 mm x 237 mm. 504pp. 830 coloured illustrations. Splendid hardback in pristine jacket This is the first book to cover all aspects of English watches from every period. Watches represent a fascinating combination of applied art and science and an outstanding contribution to their history and development was made in England. By dividing the watches into six periods, each with its own introduction, the author has been able to provide an admirably clear and comprehensive survey, to describe the pioneering inventions as they were made and to illustrate the distinctive character of the English watch as it evolved. An outline of each period is followed by information on the trade in London and the provinces, watchmakers, case makers, case styles and decoration, dials, hands, characteristics of the mechanisms and timekeeping capabilities. Over 290 watches illustrating these points have been carefully selected from both private and public collections and details have been enlarged to clarify important features. Many of these watches have never been illustrated before. There is an extensive glossary which includes further technical information and, as well as a detailed general index, there are separate indexes of makers and case makers. The author, a dealer for more than forty years, has a lasting enthusiasm for his subject. He is familiar with its many facets and used to providing answers on a wide range of specific questions. This book is intended not only to be a useful guide to those new to the subject but also a valuable point of reference for those already familiar with it. this publication is a major contribution to the genre and will be a standard reference for many years to come.[ British Museum magazine, 2009.] Terence Camerer Cuss, the sixth generation of the family firm Camerer Cuss & Co founded in London in 1788, has been involved in the world of antique watches and clocks all his life. He has been a liveryman of the Clockmakers' Company since 1969. The Antique Collectors' Club first published The Camerer Cuss Book of Antique Watches, a revised and enlarged edition of his father's Country Life Book of Watches, in 1976 and they have reprinted it several times. He moved the business premises from New Oxford Street to St. James's in 1983 where he continued dealing for the next twenty years. He wrote the limited edition catalogue of Lord Sandberg's important collection The Sandberg Watch Collection published by Antiquorum, Geneva in 1998. He has contributed a number of articles to magazines and periodicals, and continues to enjoy his subject, the research and occasional discovery!. (ISBN: 9781851495887) .

A Round of Days
0. 1866. Described in Original Poems by some of Our Most Celebrated Poets and in Pictures by Eminent Artists engraved by the Brothers Dalziell. London, George Routledge and Sons, 1866; 4to; [xii], 93 numbered leaves, printed on rectos only, with wood-engraved illustrations on nearly every leaf, [ii]pp.; publisher's richly-decorated cloth, spine gilt to an Arabesque design, boards richly gilt with red and blue paper onlays, a.e.g.; skillfully sewn and recased, with new endpapers, short split at head of spine, corners worn with splits, light, mainly marginal foxing (heavier to prelims and title-page), spots to a few pages affecting the image, marginal finger-mark on page 60, early inscription on original yellow front endpaper. Scarce, and would be virtually unobtainable unfoxed and tight in its original binding as issued. Nevertheless a classic, and a high-point in Victorian book illustration and book production. The volume is highly regarded both for its illustrations and for its John Leighton binding, while the authors include William Allingham, Christina Rossetti, George Macdonald, Jean Ingelow, Lady Caroline Norton, Mrs Craik, and the Howitts. "One of the finest of the illustrated gift books" (Gleeson White, p.125]. Ray 153.

The 49th leaf or page is puzzlingly numbered "49 & 50" in the lithographic plate, so the book was issued with only 79 pages beyond the prelims.

Alessandro Magnasco.
0. 1914. Berlin, Paul Cassirer, 1914. small folio; xxiv, 76 plates [with 77 illustrations], each preceded by a page of caption; publisher's printed wrappers; a few spots to edges, otherwise a very good copy. Apparently the first attempt ever to unite the scattered oeuvre of this Italian baroque master, reprinting Ratti's LIfe of Magnasco [in Italian] in the prefatory material. For Geiger, the artist puts 'sein unerhoertes, durch die Erfindung lediglich bedingtes Koennen in den Dienst des Ausdrucks; und leitet ueber, vorTiepolo, vor Guardi oder Goya, zu jenem umgepfluegten Erdreich, darinnen wir die Wurzel der modernen Malerei erkennen.'.

0. 1942. Tribut einer Ehrfurcht. Bogota, 1942; 124 pp. with frontispiece portrait; 23 x 18 cm.; publisher's printed wrappers reproducing the same portrait as the frontispiece; largely unopened; neat repair to verso of wrapper. A very rare tribute to Hoelderlin published by in war-time exile. The first part of the book (about half the contents) narrates "Hoelderlin's Leben", in prose. The second part consists of "Sonette und Balladen" by Haker on Hoelderlin-related themes. This work was printed, in Colombia, at the end of 1942, in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of Hoelderlin's death. To quote the blurb on the wrapper: " Sie erinnert an das Ewige des Deutschtums, an das, was alle Zeiten und Alle fluechtigen Wechsel uebedauert: an das, was man die unsterbliche Seele des deutschen Volkes nennen koennte. In der biographischen Skizze findet der Leser sich unter deutschen Menschen, in den Versen erscheinen ihm alle die seelischen Zuege deutschen Wesens, die uns als wertvoll und als unverlierbar gelten .. Solche deutsche Art, wie sie Hoelderlin kennzeichnet, wuerde in unseren Tagen unter gleich tragischem Stern stehen, und so mag es wohl geschehen, dass ein jeder von uns in diesem Dichterleben ein wenig seines eigenen Lebens, seiner eigenen Wuensche, Hoffnungen und Enttaeuschungen wiederfindet ..".
