 BACKHOUSE, JANET, The Illuminated Page Ten Centuries of Manuscript Painting in the British Library
BACKHOUSE, JANET
The Illuminated Page Ten Centuries of Manuscript Painting in the British Library
Toronto, Canada: University of Toronto Press, 1998. 1st Canadian Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. Color Illustrations; This book is in Fine condition and has a Near Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is mostly clean and bright, but has two scratches to the front cover and some beginning rolling to the top spine end. "The earliest surviving substantive illuminated manuscripts are from the period 400 to 600, produced in the Kingdom of the Ostrogoths and the Eastern Roman Empire. The significance of these works lies not only in their inherent artistic and historical value, but also in the maintenance of a link of literacy offered by non-illuminated texts. Had it not been for the monastic scribes of Late Antiquity, most literature of Greece and Rome would have perished in Europe. As it was, the patterns of textual survivals were shaped by their usefulness to the severely constricted literate group of Christians. Illumination of manuscripts, as a way of aggrandizing ancient documents, aided their preservation and informative value in an era when new ruling classes were no longer literate, at least in the language used in the manuscripts.".

Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. What he called his prophetic works were said by 20th-century critic Northrop Frye to form "what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language". His visual artistry led 21st-century critic Jonathan Jones to proclaim him "far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced". In 2002, Blake was placed at number 38 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. While he lived in London his entire life, except for three years spent in Felpham, he produced a diverse and symbolically rich uvre, which embraced the imagination as "the body of God" or "human existence itself".

After graduation, Hidy received a grant to study with Leonard Baskin, an artist with similar interests in engraving and typographic design, who was teaching at Smith College. In May of 1969, Hidy joined the Godine Press in Brookline, Massachusetts, where he worked in a variety of roles, including designer and pressman. From there he moved to New Hampshire to work at the Coos County Democrat, then owned by the respected printer Roderick Stinehour. In 1974, Hidy went into business as a free-lance designer. One of his most noted book designs was for Ansel Adams's Yosemite and the Range of Light. Hidy designed his first poster in 1977.

FORD, JAMES L.
Forty-Odd Years in the Literary Shop
New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, 1921. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; SIGNED EDITION. This book is in Very Good to Near Very Good+ condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. There are several spots of ground-in dirt to the front cover. The gilt lettering on the spine has dulled. The text pages are clean and bright. This copy has been signed by the author on the reverse of the frontispiece. "Born in St. Louis, a son of James K. And Louisa Livermore Ford, James L. Ford attended a school in Stockbridge, Mass. At the age of 16 he came to New York and started his half century and more of writing with a job on the Railway Gazette. In his book, "Forty-odd Years in the Literary Shop," published in 1923, he told with his characteristic satiric humor and shrewd observation of his manifold experiences as an author in this city. Mr. Ford's service with the Herald ended with the sale of the newspaper to Frank A. Munsey. Since then he had been a "free lance," writing for magazines and newspapers many kinds of articles and reviews, the latter chiefly concerned with books. Ten years ago it was necessary to cut off one of his legs, and three years afterward the other. Two years ago he became blind. But he did not cease writing until five weeks ago, a few days before the doctors ordered him to the hospital. And this beginning of the end of his long fight came shortly after the happiest day of his life, when he was brought up to the city to a friend's house and was made the guest of honor at a celebration attended by nearly every important man and woman in the literary and dramatic worlds of the city." ; Signed by Author.
