Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1896. This is a beautiful original leaf from the magnificent The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer issued by the Kelmscott Press. It is considered a landmark in the history of printing. This disbound leaf is the first page of text for "The Hous of Fame Liber Tercius - the Invocation". Chaucer’s 'House of Fame' is a surreal account of a dream in which the poet visits the palace where Fame herself sits in state. Chaucer’s tour-guide to this strange corner of the medieval universe is a comically garrulous eagle, and there is even time for the pair to stop by the House of Rumour. This page has a splendid illustration by Edward Burne-Jones, who provided the designs for the 87 wood-engravings that illustrate the book. It shows the poet wandering among the ice that have the names of famous people inscribed - but he cannot read them because all but a few letters have thawed and disappeared (fleeting fame...). The illustration is enclosed in a beautiful ornamental border designed by William Morris. There is also an ornate 16-liine opening initial and a six-line initial on the front page. The other side of the page has double column text with ten three-line initials. Printed in Chaucer type on Perch paper. In near fine condition save for pinholes along the left margin from binding, a few light spots of foxing, and two faint tape marks to the top margin of the verso. 11 x 17 inches. PRI/011519. Near Fine.

San Francisco: Deeply Game Publications, 2012. Hardcover. Number 45 of 55 copies. Signed by the author and book artists. Book artist Sara Press collaborated with Andrew Rottner to create this exquisite tribute to printing’s golden age. "The story, by Christina Lauritsen, mis-remembers H.C. Andersen’s classic tale of the same name, transforming it into a story of revelation and madness. The visual progression of the book mirrors the plot, pitting the beauty of the decorative arts against the intense and unpredictable messiness of human experience. This book confronts the inevitability of loss and bows to intellectual freedom and its attendant risks." [artists' statement]. The book is printed in Garamond and Bembo types on Moab Entrada paper. It features two 26 inch wide foldouts with illustrations by Rottner. The striking cover is done from a cut-marbled-paper and brocade. The book measures 7 x 9 inches. It is unpaginated. Deeply Game Productions creates and distributes the art works of Sara Press and her collaborators. Sara L. Press is a photographer, printmaker and book artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Many of her projects examine peculiar areas of overlap between nature and culture (for example: dog fighting, feral children, and our co-evolution with snakes). Sara has also wrestled with the relationship between creativity and the scientific method. Recently, Sara has turned to constructions of masculinity and femininity in our culture (such as human bloodsports and altered fairy-tales). Her work can be seen in public collections around the country and are also in many library and private collections. A lovely book in fine condition. PRI/021919. Fine.
