CLERK, THOMAS,
The Works of William Hogarth. 2 Volumes
0. 1821. (Including "The Analysis of Beauty"), elucidated by Descriptions Critical, Moral, and Historical .. to which is prefixed Some Account of his Life. 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 -".

BREVIARIUM NOVI II (1495) FACSIMILE EDITION
This Second Novi Breviary Is a Large Codex of 500 Folios.
. The greater part of it was transcribed by Priest Martinac from the district of Lapac in Grobnic, one of the free medieval Vinodol communes. In his colophons he mentions 1493, 1494 and 1495 as the years in which the codex was written and finished. It was inscribed for the Pauline monastery and the Church of St. Mary on Osap, a little hill outside the walls of Novi Vinodol. The Pauline monks in the glagolitic areas celebrated the Old Slav services from glagolitic liturgical books. The script, particularly that of Priest Martinac is neat and legible liturgical script in square Croatian glagolitic as was use in the 14 and 15 centuries. In language the codex is the Croation redaction of Church Slav. The texts date from the 10th to the 15th centuries, and old and new linguistic elements are intermixed. The breviary retains entire the breviary of the Roman Curia distinguished by lessons of considerable length and detailed descriptions of the offices in the rubrics. 1. Proprium de tempore (fol. 1-267d) 2. Calendar (fol. 268-275) 3. Psalterium (fol. 276a-322c) 4. Officium defunctorum (fol. 322c-324c) 5. Commune Sanctorum (fol. 324c-355c) 6. Officium "de Beata" (fol. 356a-359c) 7. Proprium sanctorum (fol. 382a-500d) All the components of this codex: language, script, illuminations, and text are characterised by a mixture of older forms and newer innovations. They present a wide field of interest to scholars in linguistics, and philology, and to librarians, liturgists, musicologists and historians of art. In order to facilitate reading and orientations a glagolitic alphabet has been provided, a list of the most frequent abbreviations of contents. The codex dates from 1495 The Fine Art Facsimile Edition: Codices Selecti vol. LXI.

GEIGER, BENNO,
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.'.

xxx Robert von Haug (27 May 1857, Stuttgart - 3 April 1922, Stuttgart) , German impressionist painter, illustrator and lithographer who specialized in scenes from the "Befreiungskriege". From 1872 to 1877, he was enrolled at the Stuttgart Kunstschule ], then spent two years at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, where he studied with Carl von Hberlin, Bernhard von Neher and Otto Seitz. While there, he was a close associate of Karl Stauffer-Bern and Ludwig von Herterich. In 1879, he returned to Stuttgart. His first major exhibitions came after 1883, including one at the Glaspalast, but his chief occupation was book illustrating. He also painted frescoes for the Stuttgart City Hall. He became a Professor at the Kunstschule in 1894. From 1912 to 1916 he was also the school's Director. One of his best-known students was Carl Geist. Around 1912 a dispute began between the Avant-garde faction led by Adolf Hlzel and the Traditionalists, with whom Haug sided. He was replaced as Director by Hlzel, who resigned three years later when the school rejected Paul Klee for a teaching post.
