21 Chamberlain, Samuel Tudor Homes of England with Some Examples from Later Periods

Presumed first printing of the first edition. NOT ex library. Printed and bound in the USA. Probably one of about 1,000 copies but not so stated. Maroon buckram binding, with gilt lettering and blind-stamped border to the front board and gilt lettering to the spine. Very clean and well-preserved binding. Moderately bumped spine head and tail, with light abrasion. Moderately bumped and abraded corners. Hinges with a little play but text block firmly bound in. 16 x 12 inches. (40.5 x 30.5 cm.)

Also with 246 numbered pages of B&W plates and illustrations, including sketches in pen, pencil and drypoint, and photographs by the author, and with measured drawings by Louis Skidmore. The archival architectural photos are not only of scholarly value but also are a poignant reminder of a vanishing England, as quite a few of the structures have since fallen into disrepair or have been demolished. Upper corner of front FEP with gift inscription in a blue ink hand. Rear pastedown bears tiny sticker of bookseller. Else we can find no evident demerits. A very clean copy. Respectfully read. Lacking the dust jacket. Rated a Very Good Minus copy.

22 Chipiez, Charles; Perrot, Georges History of Art in Persia
London, England Chapman and Hall, Limited 1892 Presumed First Edition Half-Leather Good Plus 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
"Illustrated with two hundred and fifty-four engravings in the text and twelve steel and coloured plates." Translated from the French of both authors. Apparently not published in French prior to the Chapman and Hall edition, thus presumed first edition, and believed issued before the American edition of A. C. Armstrong & Son, NY. Printed by William Clowes and Sons, London. Bound in half morocco, the spine with false hubs and with attractive gilt-stamped lettering and decoration. The leather of a medium green color, now faded to medium brown along the edges, and the spine evenly sunned to a medium brown color. The boards in a handsome greenish-white cloth with tweed-like graining. Unbumped spine head and tail, with fairly sharp if lightly abraded corners. Strong hinges. Text block firmly bound in. 10.25 x 6.75 inches. T.E.G. Handsome marble pastedowns and opposite FEPs, all exceptionally clean. With xii and 508 numbered pages. With XII steel-engraved plates, as called for, 4 of which are in color. Also with 254 B&W illustrations, including maps, elevations, plans, and details, and with 8 tail-pieces. Pull-out plates include Plate IV, Persepolis, Hypostyle Hall of Xerxes - Geometrical Elevation; Plate VII, Persepolis, Hall of a Hundred Columns - Geometrical Elevation and Longitudinal Section; and Plate VIII, Persepolis, Hall of a Hundred Columns - Perspective View of Interior. Several of the plates with pronounced tidemarks to the lower corner margins and some spotting at the top margins. However, all four color plates are virtually blemish-free, as are pull-out Plates IV and VII. As to the text block as such, very occasional foxing near the page tops, especially at the preliminaries. The pages show mild age toning. Else a clean volume, with evidence of moderate shelf life. Gently read. Uncommonly found in half leather; most copies were issued in full cloth. Down-graded to Good Plus on account of the unsightly tidemarks affecting some of the plates. Otherwise would be Very Good. With thanks to Wikipedia for the following: Charles Chipiez [1835-1901] was an influential French architect, Egyptologist, Iranologist, and an avid historian of the ancient world's architecture. Chipiez with the help of French architect, hellenist, and architectural historian Georges Perrot [1832-1914] wrote some of the most detailed description of the architectural achievements of the ancient world in such places as Egypt, Greece, Persia, Lydia, Lycia and Assyria. Chipiez would also create some of the most detailed virtual architectural drawings of the ancient monuments that once stood erect, bringing them to life.

The Architectural History of Harrow Church Derived from a Study of the Building, Gardner, Samuel
29 Gardner, Samuel The Architectural History of Harrow Church Derived from a Study of the Building
Harrow, England Wilbee, J. C. 1895 First Edition Full-Leather Very Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Contemporary full morocco binding of a dark brown color, and with hubbed spine in six panels. Boards with gilt rules and small gilt decorative motifs, and with small diaper design in blind to the fields. Spine states, in fairly crisp, gilt-stamped letters, "Harrow Church, Gardner." Spine with elaborate and crisp gilt-stamped design. Generally unbumped spine head and tail and with slightly bumped lower corners, The leather binding is exceptionally clean and almost entirely free of scratches, and with minor rubbing along the gutters. The spine is lightly and evenly sunned to a medium brown color. The text block is firmly bound in. 9.25 x 6 inches. With handsome marbled paper pastedowns and FEPs. T.E.G. With xii and 95 numbered pages, including an introduction, the main text, a glossary of technical terms employed, and a postscript. With XL full-page B&W plates plus Plate XLI, a pristine pull-out architectural ground plan of the church, The Church of S. Mary Harrow on the Hill. Also with 15 additional B&W illustrations. We can find no foxing or other blemishes, save for an instance of off-setting. The book is astonishingly clean overall. Front pastedown with the stunning late 19th century armorial bookplate of Harrow School, including the motto "stet fortvna domvs." Near the top of the bookplate is written in a neat ink hand, "E. W. Swan, Term prize for Drawing, 1900' given May 31st, 1900." Hence a presentation copy. Off-setting between p. 72 and the opposite plate, likely due to insertion of a newspaper clipping or similar. Neatly pasted on to a blank rear FEP is a newspaper clipping, "Harrow Church 850 Years Old." Above the clipping in a neat ink hand is, "Times, Jan. 17th 1944." Neatly pasted on to the opposite blank rear FEP is a B&W photo of Harrow Church, doubtless from the same newspaper article. Finally, neatly pasted on to the rear pastedown is a very small -- and somewhat bizarre -- news magazine clipping, "A Railway Victim." The clipping pertains to an interesting gravestone in Harrow-on-the-Hill churchyard regarding a hapless man who was run over and killed by a railway train in 1833, shortly after rail was introduced to Harrow and vicinity. Else a very clean copy. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. An altogether engaging and handsome volume and a pleasure to hold in hand.

In the artist's words, "Time frame of these works is 1928 to 1988. 60 years. The painter is still at it. In 'art' there is no such thing as evolution. Aesthetic experience at the age of 11 is as vital as at 70. Thus these works are not dated. As this publication is not a reference book, no dimension is given below each work. A work of art is to be experienced in toto in its given format. You turn pages of images. You choose passages of colours."

This is the first and only issue of the magazine, Arroyo Craftsman, and was published October 1909. Publication of issues was contemplated on a quarterly basis. One of an unstated limitation. 9 x 6 inches. Lightest spruce blue wrappers, with substantial amounts of black-stamped lettering to the front and rear wrappers and, to the front wrapper, a sunburst design in golden yellow with a hand-held hammer and the motto "We Can" in a ribbon. The wrapper paper has faded evenly to a blue-beige. The wrappers are very clean. With 67 numbered pages, plus xv numbered pages of adverts in the rear. There are numerous B&W illustrations, including photo-plates, drawings and plans. A 1 inch tear to the rear wrapper has been expertly repaired; else no pre-existing faults. An exceptionally clean copy. The wrappers protected by a new, heavy-duty, clear Mylar wrap-around. A Very Good Plus copy. Extremely scarce in any condition. In October 1909, influenced by William Morris, the Stickley brothers and the Roycroft community, James published the "Arroyo Craftsman" through the Arroyo Guild Press. For the serious collector of books and writings on the California Arts and Crafts movement and, in particular, the Pasadena center of that movement, this magazine issue will take its place as one of the crowning glories of the collector's library.
