Toronto: Cheshire Cat Press, 2015. Number 16 of 66 copies signed and numbered by the publisher, Andy Malcolm, the writer of the introduction, Edward Wakeling, and the printer, George A. Walker. The press calls this fine production their Sesquicentennial Edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Edward Wakeling, who wrote the introduction, is an internationally known authority on Carroll. Wakeling writes in his introduction: Harry Furniss was born in Wexford, Ireland on March 26, 1854. He was a prolific artist and illustrator, best remembered for his humorous illustrations published in Punch, to which he contributed over 2,600 drawings from 1880 to 1894. Furniss was eleven years old when Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published. He regretted not being old enough to illustrate the Alice book for himself. He was delighted when Carroll singled him out to illustrate the Sylvie and Bruno books. Carroll recognized Furniss’s ability to draw both character likenesses and grotesques; an essential ingredient for his new book. Sylvie and Bruno was nothing like Alice’s Adventures. Furniss said that this was a bitter disappointment to him. Inwardly, he nursed the ambition to do his own illustrated version of Alice. When the copyright ran out in 1907, he drew twenty illustrations for the book. But few people have seen Alice as illustrated by Harry Furniss. The illustrations first appeared in three installments of The Children’s Encyclopaedia edited by Arthur Mee in 1908. This edition offers for the first time enlarged, high resolution copies of the original Furniss art. The portfolio of loose illustration leaves is made available for sale as a hand printed folio. The polymer plates of the illustrations were made from high resolution scans; sixteen of these images are from the original drawings from the archives of the Fales Library in New York City. Printed on Arches Velin Cream French 100% rag archival paper with Janson type. The portfolio is housed in a clam shell box made from the finest quality materials, with red cloth covers and a gilt illustration of the white rabbit on the top cover and gilt title on spine.

Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. I have been fascinated by the relation of people to their space and the sense of belonging. Using papercutting where everything is cut from a single piece of Tyvek, the profusion of individual stories makes a coherent whole world." [From her website] ARTISTSB/081921. Fine.

But...for Béatrice the gift is a sheet of Tyvek...or paper, and the stories to be unearthed and unleashed within and through the medium." Coron describes her book work: "For the last 20 years, I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. I have been fascinated by the relation of people to their space and the sense of belonging.

Ashbee, and carried out under the supervision of C.R. Ashbee, from whose hand is also the alphabet of bloomers.[colophon]. C.R. Ashbee was a follower of William Morris’s belief in the importance of handcrafts in their increasingly mechanized society, and to that end he founded the Guild of Handcraft in 1888. Part of the guild was the Guild of Women Bookbinders, founded in 1901 under the supervision of Anastasia Power, a pupil of Douglas Cockerell. Ashbee founded the Essex House Press as a separate entity in 1898 when the Kelmscott Press closed and he had the opportunity to buy their handpresses and to hire some of their pressmen.

London: Ralph Smith, 1700. Hardcover. A unique copy of a first edition Restoration comedy from the personal library of actor and theater manager John Philip Kemble. The volume is initialed, collated, and pronounced perfect on the title page in ink by Kemble along with the date. John Philip Kemble (1757 - 1823) was an important English actor who also achieved fame as the manager of the Drury Lane and Covent Garden theaters. He was also known for assembling a theatrical library that was unrivaled. After he retired in 1819 he sold his collection of 4000 plays and forty volumes of playbills to Cavendish, the 6th Duke of Devonshire. The Devonshire collection is now part of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. The remainder of Kemble's library was auctioned by Evans in Pall Mall over ten days beginning January 21, 1821 (from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). George Farquhar (1677 - 1707) was an Irish playwright of real comic power who wrote for the English stage at the beginning of the 18th century. He stood out from his contemporaries for originality of dialogue and a stage sense that doubtless stemmed from his experience as an actor. His early plays were primarily spirited variations on a theme: young men have their fling for four acts and reform, unconvincingly, in the fifth. The plays have freshness, however, as well as wit and a lively human sympathy (Encyclopedia Britannica). For this copy each individual page has been meticulously framed on slightly larger sheets of contemporary white paper. It has been beautifully bound by Riviere and Son in full tan calf with gold tooling and lettering. The spines have five raised bands with gilt decorated compartments and there are two leather labels, one with the play's title and author, and the other stating "J.P. Kemble's Copy." With gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, and all edges gilt, with a few splash marks on cover otherwise in near fine condition. The pages of the play are browned with occasional spots of foxing and soiling but text is completely legible. In very good condition. Measures 6.5 x 9 inches. 54 pages. DRAMA/012121. Near Fine.
