Baltimore: Robert H. Craig, 1812. Hardcover. Uncommon. Early American edition based on similar British manuals. Robert Craig, Teacher of Military Tactics, says in his preface: "Having examined the different works on the Sword Exercise and the Drill and Evolutions for the Cavalry, I take the liberty of recommending this work to the Cavalry of the United States, as possessing advantages over any other work now in use." The work offers stringent and absolute rules governing formation, movements, drills, and field exercises necessary to ensure that "the horseman has a decided advantage over an enemy that his horsemanship and superiority in the use of his sword will produce." Bound in full brown leather with red title label to spine. Leather is chipped, rubbed, scuffed, and bumped. The front cover is almost detached and the rear joint is tender. The thin and fragile paper is browned and spotted throughout, and there are occasional tears along page margins. There are twenty-six browned and spotted plates showing men and horses performing steps and maneuvers. The simple line drawings have offsetting on their facing pages. Some plates are foldouts and are only in fair to poor shape, with chipping and small tears. One has split in two but both pieces are there. There is also a twenty-seventh foldout chart showing the posts of officers. An early bookseller has written his name and the price of $3.50 on the free front endpaper. Despite flaws, the book is a scarce and interesting treatise on this specialized branch of the military. Octavo. 215 pages. MIL/072621. Good.

Cedar Falls, IA: Islam Aly, 2017. Hardcover. 1 of 40 copies. Signed, numbered, and dated by the artist. "'Fantastic Fauna' is a bilingual book in English and Arabic, based on the tradition of having animal characteristics as caricatures of humans. The book was inspired from Ibn Al Mqufas's 'Kalila and Dimna' a ninth-century collection of animal fables which came to Persia from India, similar to George Orwell's political allegory 'Animal Farm', the stories are about people and politics. The animal characters were used to represent social inequality and oppression.'Fantastic Fauna' shows animal images from medieval Islamic artwork that depict imaginary and real animals. The book offers the reader with a different reality where the words describing the animals are not in the main book but inside the miniature books. The reader will be intrigued to find differences and connections between images and words, animal and human characters. The book ends with the George Orwell quote "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others" (artist's website). Hand-sewn coptic binding in wooden boards with leather wrappings connected to five miniature books. The books all feature laser-engraved animals on the boards.

In an artist's statement he writes: "When I make a historical book structure, I go through a learning process. I learn the history as well as the different physical aspects of the binding such as how a book form is constructed in a specific sequence. I learn about the use of different materials such as paper, wood, leather and dyes. I learn to make choices in selecting and replacing traditional materials that I don’t have access to. I use these different experiences to enhance my work in making artists’ books and to use historical and cultural references from these structures in the actual content. In essence, I wish to explore new ways to use the rich structures of historical books in contemporary artists’ book practice and incorporate contemporary content into strictly historical structures."

Cairo: Islam Aly, 2020. Hardcover. 1 of 30 copies (and five proofs). Signed, numbered, and dated by the artist. "Statera" explores the rhombic dot system behind the Thuluth script. An Arabic, elegant, cursive writing that is used on architectural monuments and manuscripts. In Arabic, this system is called "Mizan Al Horof" (balance of letters). "Statera" shows each letter's specific structure, which is built of a significant rule: the number of dots. The 28 letters are printed in Thuluth script with vibrant red color, over regular handwritten text by ordinary people. Different styles, signatures, seals, notes, and markings from legal ledger paper contrast with the Thuluth script rules. This contrast reveals an engaging perspective hidden between the balanced letters and aged documents. The fourteen rhombus pieces of camel bone are engraved with a letter on each side, echoing the book's interior. legal ledger paper from the late 1800s and 1900s, museum board, hand-printed Arabic letters from magnesium plates, laser-engraved wooden boards, book cloth, stiff-leaf binding with leather wrappings connected to laser engraved camel bone pieces.

Aurora, CO: Alicia Bailey at Ravenpress, 2020. Hardcover. Produced in a variable edition of no more than 9 copies of which this is number 4. A collection of 17 endangered frog species, each hand painted (reproduced digitally), and briefly described with terms such as "population decreasing." Labeled ink drawings of frog anatomy are incorporated into each illustration. A circle graph showing frog populations as extinct, critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable, near threatened, least concern, and data deficient accompanied with hand-written percentiles in red adorns the bottom of the case for the book. Along the interior edges of the box the following text is printed: "Blake believed that the object of being human is to learn how to be human. Will we learn to be human in time? To live up to our full capacities in time to save ourselves? To save the world that is vulnerable to us? To fail will bring on a greater tragedy than we can possibly imagine." According to the artist: "This project began with a batch of biology notebooks from my great-aunt Ruth's archive that were created in 1920 as part of her undergraduate education. I inked over several of her pencil drawings detailing frog biology, treated the pages so they would be receptive to oil paint, then painted a variety of frogs, one to a page. Scanned at high-resolution, these images were printed on hand-dyed Mohawk Superfine Text paper with archival digital inks. The images were each mounted on a core of museum board wrapped with elephant hide paper with further details about the depicted frog hand-written in red ink. The pages are bound using a wire edge structure, onto metal rods. The book and box covers have been treated with shellac, then overpainted with gesso, oil, and wax. The covers each have a hand-painted frog behind laser etched mica labels. The diamond shaped book is housed in a custom box with text laser etched into the tray's corner pieces. The base of the box has a print out of a circle graph with a hand-written legend under a layer of cast acrylic."

Her work has been featured in dozens of exhibitions and is held in many collections around the world. Size: about 8 x 7 x 2 inches. [20 pages.] ARTB/111621. Fine.
Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1928. Hardcover. Number 4 of the 1000 copies of the Manuscript Edition, printed at the Riverside Press in Cambridge, MA. This is a compelling and detailed biography of Abraham Lincoln. The preface describes the rigorous and painstaking research conducted by the author for the book. Albert Jeremiah Beveridge (1862 – 1927) was an American historian and US senator from Indiana. He was an intellectual leader of the Progressive Era and a biographer of Chief Justice John Marshall and President Abraham Lincoln. As his political career was coming to a close in 1922, Beveridge dedicated his time to writing historical literature. His four-volume set The Life of John Marshall, published in 1916–1919, won Beveridge a Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography and connected events in John Marshall's life with his later rulings on the US Supreme Court. Beveridge spent most of his final years writing a four-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln, but it was only half-finished at his death and posthumously published in 1928 as Abraham Lincoln, 1809–1858. It stripped away the myths and revealed a complex and imperfect politician [Wikipedia]. Beautifully bound in full leather with elaborate gilt tooling to covers and gilt titling and ornaments to spines. The spines have darkened and there are some remnants of a call number having been printed at the spine base. There are no other indications that this is ex-library. Some scuffing along bottom edges of covers. The volumes also have some fading along edges. Volume I has light stain on front cover. Top edges gilt. Other edges not trimmed. Volume IV has small tears along fore-edges of pages 313-316 where book was poorly opened. The volumes have beautiful green and red leather doublures with gilt designs and rulings. The front doublures have a few light marks while the rear ones are near fine. The free endpapers facing the doublures are covered in grey silk. The back of the silk covered page in Volume I has small tears along gutter.Text pages are clean and bright. With 36 illustrations plus four color frontispieces with Washington DC scenes. Volume I has a page from Beveridge's original manuscript tipped in. A lovely set of this important biography in very good condition. Octavos.

Board of Governors and Managers of the Home, 1894. Hardcover. It may seem odd to think of Maryland as having once had a home for Confederate Soldiers; however, as the introduction of this souvenir book points out - the sentiments of Marylanders were divided during the war as much of the state was farm land with interests in tobacco farming, but many residents also felt a strong love for the Union. This home was located in the armory, which still stands on Reisterstown Rd. in Pikesville. The book includes a brief history of the armory, descriptions of each room, relics contained within (i.e. Confederate coats, photographs, a fork said to have been used by E.H. Browne in a gun boat at Chicamauga, etc.), photographic images of the grounds, buildings, managers of the home, and residents, lists of officers and rules (Rule 1: Uniforms must be worn on Sundays, holidays, etc. .... 4. Quarreling and other boisterous behavior is not permitted.), excerpts from muster rolls, list of members of the Society of the Army and Navy of Confederate Soldiers of Maryland (including addresses, deceased members, and male decendents), and many advertisements from local companies. A fascinating piece of history for Civil War and Maryland historians. It is unclear how long the home remained in operation or what kind of care the residents received. Bound in grey cloth boards with gilt title and decoration to front board. Rear board is present but nearly detached. Stain to front board, crack to front hinge, and minor toning to margins of pages. Overall, clean and bright interior. 133 pages. MD/122121. Very Good.
Plains, PA: Boss Dog Press, 2017. Hardcover. Number 19 of 54 regular copies, signed by the translator and the printer, Don Rash. There were also 26 special copies and 20 copies in sheets for binders. From the Press website: The Bone Folder was the fifth, and most ambitious, publication of the Boss Dog Press. It is a letterpress edition of Ernst Collin’s Der Pressbengel, originally published in 1922, translated here from the original German by Peter D. Verheyen. the text is a dialog between a fictional bookbinder and his equally fictional patron, with the goal of educating bibliophiles about the processes of hand bookbinding. The dialog is carried out over six days, Monday through Saturday, with a different subject each day. Monday covers forwarding; Tuesday is decorated papers, leather and vellum; Wednesday, paper case bindings; Thursday, quarter leather bindings; Friday is full leather binding; Saturday describes gold tooling. In addition to discussing specific techniques, the text also addresses the conflicts between quality and cost and matters of good taste. The text is augmented by a bio-bibliographical study of the history of the Collin family, three generations of whom were bookbinders of significance in Germany from the mid-1800’s to World War II. This essay is the culmination of Peter D. Verheyen’s extensive research about Ernst Collin over several years. In addition the text is complemented by the inclusion of seven photographic images, a frontispiece, and an enlarged image of Ernst Collin's handwritten signature. Bound in full gray and brown pastepaper over boards, with a white paper spine and front cover title labels. Printed with Monotype digital Walbaum and BDP FritzGotische types on Hahnemühle Biblio paper. Housed in a pastepaper covered slipcase with gray spine. In fine condition.

Plains, PA: Boss Dog Press, 2012. Hardcover. Copy X of twenty special copies. The total edition was 70 copies. Dan Rash, the printer and compiler of this catalog writes: "The purpose of this catalog is to document a small bit of book arts history, and to perhaps provide a resource for collectors and scholars of Loyd Haberly's bindings. To this end I have organized the material as presented here." The materials presented are categorized by Equipment; Finishing Tools; Hand Tools; and Supplies. Each includes a list of the materials included, accompanied by a photograph of each item listed. Loyd Haberly(1896-1981) was raised in Iowa and Oregon. After studying at Reed College and Harvard, Haberly was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study Law at Trinity College, Oxford. However, he became interested in fine printing while in England and began to print and bind books under his own imprint, the Seven Acres Press. He was named controller of the Gregynog Press, a well-known private press in Wales, in 1933, but his tenure with the press was brief and, by most accounts, less than satisfactory to all concerned. While with the press he commissioned a typeface, variously known as Paradiso, Gregynog, Gwendoline or Foligno; when he left he was presented with a supply of the type, which he later used, after returning to the United States, in the production of a number of hand-printed limited editions for which he served as author, illustrator, printer, and binder [Wikipedia]. This beautiful copy from the special edition was printed on handmade paper with the Haberly watermark; it was produced at the Batchelor mill in England. Each center fold-out is an original page of smoke proofs, with every tool impressed onto machine made Kozi paper. The book is printed with Italian Old Style type. It is bound in lovely dark blue paste paper with a brown leather spine with gilt titling. Housed in a dark blue paste-paper covered slipcase. In fine condition. Measures 7.5 x 12.25 inches. Unpaginated [6 pages]. BOB/111221. Fine.

It includes an introduction by Hans Halbey, who acquired most of Eberhardt's tools following his death, a short essay by Eberhardt about his work, and a catalog of Eberhardt's handmade finishing tools. Don Rash of the Boss Dog Press studied with Eberhardt and his hand binder wife Trudi. He writes a short preface describing Eberhardt's techniques in creating his beautiful bindings. There are seventeen plates showing examples of Eberhardt's bindings plus pictures of his tools. The catalog of tools has an illustration of the shape of each tool along with information on its dimensions. This work was compiled, designed, and executed by Don Rash. Bound in full decorated cream and black paper over boards with brown leather strips at the head and tail. The types used are digital versions of Herman Zapf's Aldus for the text and Michelangelo for the titling. It is printed made at the University of Iowa Center for the Book by Tim Barrett and his student co-workers. In fine condition. Measures 6.25 x 9 inches. 50 pages. BOB/112321. Fine.
