Black cloth with title stamped in silver on front cover and spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs by Susan Meiselas. Essays by Deirdre English and Sylvia Wolf. Includes a compact disc with an interview conducted by Susan Meiselas with one of the strippers (Lena), a collage of voices from the girl shows, and a 1977 radio interview with Susan Meiselas by Jo Blatti (CD mounted on inside of back cover). Book designed by Yuko Uchikawa, New York, and Gerhard Steidl, Bernard Fischer, and Claas Möller, Göttingen. 164 pp. with 78 tritone plates printed by Steidl from scans made at Steidl's digital darkroom, Göttingen. 11 x 9-1/2 inches. 239 x 279 mm.

From 1972 to 1975, I spent my summers photographing and interviewing women who performed striptease for small town carnivals in New England, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. As I followed the girl shows from town to town, I photographed the dancers' public performances as well as their private lives. I also taped interviews with the dancers, their boyfriends, the show managers, and paying customers. The first edition of Carnival Strippers was 150 pages with seventy-three images and was published in French and English editions. Critics in the United States lauded the book as "depressing though definitely illuminating" and a "fine and compassionate documentary.(Sylvia Wolf, from Carnival Strippers in this second edition ).

Rimes Guernesiaises
0. par un Câtelain. Londres: Simpkin Marshall, Guernesey: E.Barbet, n.d. [c. 1840 - 1850]; [vi], 224 pp. with wood-engraved frontispiece and 14 wood-engraved pictorial head-or tail-pieces; binder's buckram, plainly lettered on the spine; the penultimate page is torn in the margins, with loss of two or three words. Georges Métivier [1790 - 1881], known as "The Guernsey Burns", drew heavily on traditiional and oral material for his poems in the Guernsey patois, but he lived much of his life in exile. In the preface to the edition of his "Rimes guernesiaises" which we are offering, the poet rails against an edition that had been published in Guernsey a few years previously under the same title in his absence, and without his editorial imput or supervision: "L'auteur des RIMES GUERNESIAISES n'habitait plus l'ile lorsque parut, il y a quelques années, un recueil sous ce titre, dans lequel se trouvait introduites plusieurs pièces qui lui sont entièrement inconnues, ces morceaux étant composés dans un patois désagréable, et très-différent du dialecte si expressif, nerveux et sonore, de la gogenarde vingtaine des Carités". Judging by the paper of our edition, and by the style of the wood-engraved illustrations, the book we are offering is from about 1840 - 50; it is therefore probable that the edition from which Métivier wished to disassociate himself, and the dialect and content of which he here corrects, is the 1831 edition usually associated with him and usually seen as having met his approval. A 32-page glossary is included in the pagination. The frontispiece, an illustration to the poem "Lamentations de Damaris", shows figures in front of an old house in Rue de la Fontaine, the street where Métivier was born.

Stunden Der Andacht. Ein Gebet- Und Erbauungsbuch Für Israels Frauen Und Jungfrauen, Zur öffentlichen Und Häuslichen Andacht, So Wie Für Alle Verhältnisse Des Weiblichen Lebens.
. Prague, Brandeis, n.d. 26th edition , VIII, 176pp. Fanny Schmiedl Neuda (1819-1894).published the first Jewish women¿s prayer book to be written 'by a woman in 1855. In addition to containing formal Jewish worship practices, this work covered both public and private events in the life of a Jewish woman. Fanny Neuda (née Schmiedl, b. March 6, 1819 - d. April 6, 1894) was a Jewish writer best known for her popular collection of prayers, Stunden Der Andacht (1855). She was born in Lomnice (Lobnig), Moravia to the family of Rabbi Yehudah Schmiedl (1776-1855, present-day Czech Republic). After marrying Abraham Neuda (1812-1854), she moved to Loštice, where her husband served as rabbi. After Abraham Neuda's death in 1854, her book of prayers became widely published. She died at the age of 75 years in the spa town of Merano (present-day Italy). In 2015, a plaque honouring her was unveiled in Loshtice. Neuda's collection of Jewish prayers is unique by virtue of its being the first collection of Jewish prayers composed in German by a Jewish woman. Earlier collections of te?innot - petitionary prayers, comprising a growing literature of devotional works for prayer outside of the shul had been authored by Jewish men and less commonly by Jewish women. (See the prayer of Glückel of Hameln (1646-1724) translated by Kaeren Fish in A Jewish Women's Prayer Book (e.d. Aliza Lavie 2008)). After Neuda's work was published in 1855, it attained such great popularity among Jewish women in Central Europe, that it was published in more than 30 editions (some of which were illustrated).1. At least one siddur published by Raphael Jacob Fürstenthal in 1897 appended her complete Stunden Der Andacht to it.

. Artist: Emery Walker after Edmund Hort New - Published by Edmund Hort New: 17 Worcester Place Oxford A.D. 1923 .Size: Image 331 x 410 mm Sheet 471 x 638 mm The borders of the sheet are very slightly worn, the left hand side with some spotting and a 40 mm. vertical darkened area, the right margin Has a similar 75 mm wide vertical area. ASK FOR PHOTOGRAPHS OF CORNERS AND MARGINS. The image itself is fine and clear.Edmund Hort New ( 1871 - 1931) , English artist, member of the Birmingham Group and leading illustrator of his day was was born in Evesham Worcestershire. He studied at the Birmingham Municipal School of Art under Edward R. Taylor (headmaster of the school) and A. J. Gaskin, becoming known in the 1890s as an illustrator in the black-and-white style of the Arts and Crafts movement. He specialised in pen and ink drawings of rural and urban landscapes, old buildings and their interiors, architectural features, and also designed bookplates. In his early years he worked with Ruskin and other associated Arts and Crafts artists. New provided illustrations for the English Illustrated Magazine and was commissioned by the Bodley Head publishing house to work on critically acclaimed editions of books, such as The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton and The Natural History of Selborne by Gilbert White.In 1895 New was invited to meet William Morris at Kelmscott Manor, and went on to provide design work for the Kelmscott Press as well as illustrating Morris's two-volume biography by J. W. Mackail. Between 1896 and 1914, New provided hundreds of illustrations for over 50 books for various publishers He also taught drawing to T E Lawrence In 1905 New moved to Oxford where he started work on a series of drawings of the University of Oxford colleges, based on the David Loggan's 1675 aerial perspectives, a project which was to occupy him for the rest of his life and remained unfinished. The drawings were engraved by Emery Walker and sold as the "New Loggan Prints". He also provided further illustrations for a series of books called the "College monographs" New was a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers).Sanders of Oxford describe the printing process as follows: These prints were made through a relatively new process at the time - photo engraving. Like photogravures the print is made by transferring a photo to a copper plate and then printing it. With the E.H. New prints, a contact print of New's pen and ink drawing was made and the large negative attached to a plate which was then exposed in an acid bath, the acid only biting where the negative was clear; thus, creating an engraved plate of New's drawing. The prints were available separately at shops in Oxford such as Ryman's in the early part of the 20th century and are on a cotton wove paper with an anvil watermark i.e. the paper is from stock made for the Kelmscott press.

Die Gold'ne Chronik Von Rakoczy.
0. La Grande Histoire du Rakoczy. The Golden Chronicle of Rakoczy.[Munich, c. 1843]; oblong album format: 18 x 24 cm.; lithographed pictorial title-page, 10 humorous lithographic plates [one folding] by Herwegen after Passauer, with unnumbered text-pages; original illustrated cloth-backed boards with two further illustrations; boards a little dusty, with two or three brown ink-stains, a little very, very light marginal browning or spotting. First edition. A very well preserved ephemeral souvenir of the water-cure at Bad Kissingen, offering serious information in palatable form. The drawings, mostly quite busy caricature scenes, are both satirical and affectionate. Thieme-Becker knows no more about Passauer than that he was "Genremaler und Radierer, um 1842", while the life and work of the Cologne-born lithographer, Peter Herwegen [1814-1893], who settled in Munich in 1837, are documented in detail, although the present work is not mentioned.

Schnorr took over six of his own designs for his Nibelungen frescoes in the new Muenchener Residenz for this work (hence the printed dedication to King Ludwig of Bavaria) and added new designs and decorations: all are strongly in the tradition established by Peter von Cornelius in a series of etchings published in 1817. This work is widely celebrated, and features in major exhibitions on German illustration of the period, including "Die Kunst der Illustration", Wolfenbuettel, 1986-7, No. 24 (p.59 of the catalogue).
