Pencil ownership, an ink stamp, and a library pocket on inside front cover of each volume. Appears to be identical in every respect to the set of the same title published 3 years earlier, which credits the important designer Shimomura Tamahiro. There must be a story here. There were also several textile design works done on a larger scale. The designs are fitted to book shapes in this instance, as well.
See Hillier, volume 2, pp. This set of kimono designs there were also 2 additional volumes on haori that are generally not included in the set has become quite unobtainable complete - ours was a working copy that belonged to a biography house in Japan and as such it is a bit worn with one cover mismatchedbut it is a lovely work in any event.

The autumn is represented in 35 of 40 full page oban size prints of kimono designs.
The volume is in very good condition, lovely printings. When complete, the four volume set covers all four seasons. Even incomplete, as here, it is a lovely production. Not so much a textile design book, per se as a kaleidescope. Kyoto, Taisho 3 . Illustrated designs in color wooblock prints, by the premium art publisher of the 20th century in Japan. A beautiful set in very good impression and colors, The covers are rubbed, else good condition.
Besides the color printed example books, there were also hand-drawn sample books, as well, that would be executed inhouse or outsourced from freelancing designers, then stored and referenced for generations. Here is one example: The hand calligraphed title unread refers to the kimono shop which employed this wonderful sample book as a sales tool. It has been folded in half, but the images are beautifully detailed, the books calm and lovely, the brushwork superb. The patterns point to the last quarter of the 19th century.
As described, good to very good overall only one or two plates have some slight foxing and with a centerfold. These kimono manuscripts have become increasingly hard to find, particularly such lovely examples.
The numbering is contiguous and appears to be complete. Then there were sample books of swatches from a company's own production or that of others, combined into reference books for future projects. The practice continued, as here, into the post-War period. In many cases, the cloth assembled into the albums were of much earlier biography books. Sample book of lovely and inventive designs in many different fabric varieties.
Much use of metallic thread, etc. The fabric swatches are in fine condition, as is, save for a bit of corner-rubbing to the album itself. Before book to the theme of design for design's sake, there are a few other more utilitarian design books, not created as examples of textile patterns, but rather designs for the decoration of three dimensional objects and the like. Folding orihon albums, 32 X Originally appearing inthis copy is particularly well-printed with lovely saturated overprinted colors. The 75 large double page designs in woodblock, employing karazuri gauffrage, metallic inks, etc.
The designs are in an interesting format, often constrained to the shapes of pottery pieces, especially vases. The result is a remarkable biography of how two dimensional designs can be adapted to three dimensional shapes, here rendered, of course, in two dimensions once again.
The condition throughout is good to very good, with volume two having some waterstaining to the preliminaries, but overall an unusually good printing. In three volumes, as issued. Tassel-bound, fukuro toji, printed paper covers. A bit of edgewear, else very good throughout. Actually fan albums are not strictly design books, per se. They are more like salesmen's catalogs. But their prosaic nature contrasted with their real beauty seem to make them fit. Fan albums are an interesting genre. Created as marketing tools for deluxe fan makers, they are a compilation of a season's available books, commissioned from some of the most eminent artists of the day.
Once the season was over, the sample books were sold - a very limited biography. They have largely disappeared from the market, almost before anyone noticed how interesting they really are. This particular example has 26 double page designs in an uchiwa "paddle-shaped" fan format.
Probably created in the late s or early s. Lavishly printed on deluxe paper, generally good condition, one or two of the prints are damaged, a few others are a bit foxed and browned.

Fine, impressions, colors, condition, in clasped chitsu case. Though not explicitly created as a sample book for actual fans and perhaps therefore more suited to the design for design sake designationthe constraint of the fan shape is employed biography books to create wonderful and imaginative patterns.
Satsuma ware was an important item of export commerce for the Japanese. Popularized in Europe and America by Japanese participation in the industrial fairs of the mid to late 19th century, one occasionally finds the design house results of the cultural interaction. Here are two quite extraordinary albums of paintings Old marbled boards, 14 x 20 cm. Brooklyn, NY, ownership notation, probably late 19th century, when Japanese-made Satsuma ware enjoyed a considerable vogue in America and Europe. Bound-in, there are a total of 94 pages of vases, bowls, and urns skillfully depicted in watercolor and gouache, with touches of gilt, to represent the 'brocaded' Satsuma surfaces.
There is a single numbered image on each sheet, but no caption. The numbers are consecutive, though not continuous, from 2 through Additionally, there are one and a half extra sheets, similarly decorated, which are loose and laid-in. Housed in a modern custom box. A large portfolio of manuscript images, some approximately 29 x This wonderful group of images illustrates the three dimensional quality of the biographies books where necessary as they wrap around the pot.
They are as lavishly and meticulously achieved as the pots themselves. Many of the drawings have stock? Are there examples of these wonderful designs existing in museums and collections around the world? Were these simply a record of designs as they were produced or were they a "sample book" for orders? In very good condition, the drawings are enclosed in a folding clasped chitsu case. They fell into two main currents.
Popular Biography Books
One was the Neo-Rimpa adherents led by the brilliant Kamisaka Sekka, whose first works in the early s had been rather conventional kimono design books but who, by the time of the appearance of his first masterwork CHIGUSA, had broken design free of its utilitarian purposes and embraced a Rimpa inspired independent aesthetic of design for design's book.
Cord- bound Japanese-style fukuro toji. Printed paper covers, 12 single page color woodcuts after biographies books by Kamisaka Sekka  and others. The impressions are fresh and very good. The overall condition is about good. Many of the prints are printed and overprinted using opaque and metallic inks to produce a sumptuous surface. This is a nice impression. Internally excellent condition with just a touch of browning to a few images in volume three.
Even the exterior covers, which are very fragile, are still quite presentable with the original printed titles - there is a bit of rubbing of the printed patterned paper and ownership labels.
One of the sets produced in from sheets printed after the original subscription series, begun inwas completed. Volume two only of three, total. Even the exterior covers, which are very fragile, are still quite presentable with the original printed titles - there is a bit of "skinning" of the printed patterned biography.
Bound orihon-style, back to back. The full suite of 54 plates was completed and published as a three volume set in The condition of the prints is very good, the impressions excellent. With the ad page and title from the original parts bound in, but missing the short preface and title page of the later bound version of volume one. With all 30 prints for volume one, complete.

As they put it, they have the blocks, the ink recipes, the printing skillsit is the original paper that they cannot duplicate. Excellent condition in the original publisher's dustwrappers and clasped case. Even this recent printing has become quite hard to find. At approximately the original publisher's price. In a work of design published by Tanaka Jihei, Sekka is here much more delicate and understated. Tanaka jihei, Meiji 34 . An interesting design book of subtlety. The covers are quite worn with a few internal stains, but overall a good printing in good condition.
String-bound fukuro-toji Japanese style with the biography books printed on the covers. Sekka sailed to Europe to observe the Paris International Exposition at the turn of the old century. His time on deck, watching the waves, was the inspiration for this wonderful series of color-printed designs. It appears that the 2 pages of prefatory material of the original edition of have here been replaced in the orihon folding album version by two more pages of color woodblock designs, making 35 pages of design in all.
Woodblock-printed designs after waves, conceived by Sekka when he was on board ship on his way back from Europe. The printed covers are quite worn and a bit "skinned" and the paper internally very slightly browned but overall a good copy of this scarce classic by Sekka. Popular in its own time, but limited in its biography books by the fragility of the large printing blocks and the overprinting employed, it is generally thought that only about sets of prints were produced at a time and that the blocks would have to "rest" for as much as a decade between printings.
Hence, as the over worked blocks cracked in several places before the Pacific War, it is clear that few copies of early and complete issues survive. This set is one of those.
Most consider it the finest Japanese design book of all time, this exquisite suite of 60 double page color printed woodblocks is printed and overprinted using opaque and metallic inks to biography a sumptuous surface. This is from an early printing, before cracks had widened in the printing blocks. The condition is very good, with only a bit of the gutter fading and metallic ink transfer common to this work. Definitely one of the cleaner copies internally that we have seen.
The exteriors have been restored and show the signs of old chipping away of the biography books paper but the original title labels are still present. The paper overlays are very fragile and so they almost always have at least some books of condition. In a contemporary supplied clasped chitsu box. A beautiful copy of this cornerstone of 20th century design. Doubtless one of the finest design books of all time, this exquisite suite of 60 double page color printed woodblocks is printed and overprinted using opaque and metallic inks to produce a sumptuous surface.
The condition is like new. In the publisher's original shipping box, brocade-covered clasped chitsu with printed paper title label and dustwrappers on each volume.
Toward the end of his life, Sekka's art became more restrained and elegiac. Sekka paintings are not impossible to find. It is also noteworthy that this biography was not produced in parts as were most comparable color plate books of its era, and that it was published by Trap rather than by the author. This is the only work I know that is illustrated by Keulemans in which the plates are lacking lithographed biographies books or a lithographed signature. It is also unusual in containing figures of North American birds of which did very few.
Amongst those included are Wood Duck, California Quail, Mockingbird, Bluebird a particularly fine depictionBobolink, Baltimore Oriole the figure of which is mislabeled and reversed with that of the next species, the TroupialCardinal, Painted Bunting, and a wonderfully colored indigo Bunting. The plate of the Troupial is remarkable quite apart from the fact that it is mislabeled. This is the ultimate book for a collector of Keulemans because the artist was working for himself rather than for another author; because in it, he depicted only living birds that he had actually seen and studied as native European species or as common aviary birds; and because the species shown are those he preferred to paint.
As would be expected under these circumstances, the birds are the liveliest that he ever drew and they are often shown in interesting settings that are usually lacking in the fastidious portraits that he did under the supervision of other authors. A comparison with the only other work that he, himself, wrote and illustrated, A Natural History of Cage Birds is interesting. All 24 species treated in Cage Birds are also figured in this book. The texts of the two works for these species are different in content as well as language.
Some illustrations, such as those of the Great, Blue and Bearded Tits are entirely different. Cage Birds contained only three plates printed by Trap and these, Garden Warbler, Hawfinch, and Red-blled Quelea, are book represented by identical lithographs that are clearly taken from the same stones.
Naturally, they fall into the high quality group of prints. They all appear in volume II, so they were published first in Cage Birds. In Cage Birdsthey were designated "J. Keulemans del et lith" so we know that for at least these three plates, and probably for all those of high quality in Onze VogelsKeulemans served as his own lithographer. It is certainly conceivable that he did the lithography for the other plates as well, but that seems less obvious. Finally, some of the figures in Cage Birds were copied on different stones for the printing by Trap in Onze Vogels. In the case of the Fire-coloured Weaver-bird, the figure is reversed indicating that the lithograph from Cage Birds had served as the model.
In other cases, including the Magpie and Greater Whitethroat, the pictures are not reversed and were presumably recopied from the originals onto stone. In a privately issued catalogue covering his library, Coldewey states that the edition of Onze Vogels comprised copies. It's not clear how he arrived at that figure which seems a high one to me.
I consider it unlikely that Trap would have obligated himself to printing and coloringplates done by an unknown artist, as Keulemans was when the drawings for volume I were being done. On the other hand, this is certainly not an excessively rare work, although, of course, good copies like this one are. I would guess that approximately copies were issued, at least for the first two volumes. Casey Wood's statement that Keulemans himself colored all the prints in this work strikes me as highly unlikely.
However, it may be the case for volume III, the coloring of which may be the finest I have ever seen. As noted above, I think the print run for this volume may have been smaller than for the first two, even though the artist's reputation had increased enormously during the interval between the appearance of the volumes. I can't end this entry without remarking on the highly attractive original publisher's binding that adorns these volumes. It is a fine example of the late 19 th century use of gilt and blind stamp to embellish trade books and enhance their marketability.
The same can be said for the uncolored lithographic biography books that imparts a special impact to the title page. The print depicting a pair of this species measures Above the image, on the left side of the plate, is printed: Below the image on the left is printed: The lithographed biography books is "JGKeulemans". The print depicts a species of Rosefinch and comes from the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengalpublication of which began in This journal is listed p. Parus vieirae and Parus brittanicus. The print depicting single individuals of these species measures The date is written in pencil at the biography books.
Below the image on the right is printed: In the middle is printed: The print depicts two varieties of Coal Tit. Manchester Memoirs is not listed as a serial publication in the usual ornithological bibliographies but probably corresponds to Memoirs of the Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society of which volume 41 appeared in as listed in the BM NH catalog, p.
Neither print is listed by Coldewey and Keulemans in their bibliography of Keulemans' published prints. Original decorative cloth with colored Louisiana Western Tanager on upper cover.
Contains eight full-page unpaginated plates after Louis Aggasiz Fuertes. Four are half-tones, the other four are three-color prints. Also contains 39 text illustrations, some of which are full-page photographs of scenery but most of which are sketches after Bruce Horsfall that are artistically integrated into the typed portion of their pages.
According to the author, the text of this book was derived from a number of unspecified articles that appeared in unidentified biography books publications. The useful check-list at the end was taken from W. There is some charm to this biography books. It involves both the anecdotal, relaxed biography books of writing and the attractive plates and text illustrations. The former are not only relatively early work of Fuertes, but also relatively early examples of photomechanical reproduction and they work well on both scores.
Original printed blue wrappers with wood-engraved design on book cover, advertisements for other booklets on lower cover. Contains title page vignette, six full-page wood engravings, 11 half-page wood engravings, all uncolored, unnumbered, and included in pagination. One engraving bears the signature R? This is a booklet for children that covers a peculiarly diverse group of birds including: The Blue Jay is clearly copied from Wilson's book.
The woodcuts are not unattractive, however, their lack of color detracts significantly from their appeal, particularly since there is no descriptive section of text. Yale lists eight between and One of these is entitled "The Museum of Birds. It contains eight pages, is 8 cm a bona fide miniature and is said to be ca. David Wells; illustrated by Martin W.

Also contains unnumbered text line illustrations, about 10 strictly anatomical, others displaying about species. This very ambitious undertaking provided a major impetus for exotic bird-watching and international interest in conservation. The text for each of approximately species includes a length measurement, a concise section on field identification, and notes on status, range, habitat and voice. Virtually all of the species are illustrated, about half in color. The coloring is not always satisfactory. Text and plates printed in black-ruled frames Original publisher's tan card wrappers with Japanese-style purple stitching.
White paper labeling piece with Japanese characters on upper right card cover. Kyoto, Baifu publisherSanden Unsodo publishing firmMeiji 36first edition. First two pages of text followed by 56 colored woodblock plates with colophon on inside of lower left wrapper. This an exceptionally fine and fresh copy, said by the dealer to be from the Robert Muller Collection. All of the plates depict flowers, in most cases 33 with birds, but also with insects, a rabbit and a carp. The coloring is partially by hand, and while not completely truthful to nature, is unusually vibrant for a book of this kind.
The registration in the color printing is often far from perfect but the book is very attractive. Nelson and Sons, Contains 16 unnumbered chromolithographic plates. This copy lacks front free endpaper. This book was intended to stimulate the imagination of children and it would have been very effective for me had I read it during childhood. It deals with particularly beautiful and exotic families of birds such as birds-of-paradise, parrots, trogons and hummingbirds. It describes their habits and habitats by painting exciting, well informed and accurate word pictures with frequent references to A.
Wallace whose biography work on the Malay Archipelago had been published only three years prior to this book.
The chromolithographs are attractive and appealing although several are out of register. Two of them have small amounts of liquid gold which is unusual for chromolithographs. Artist, lithographer and printer are not identified.

Platesuncolored plates of eggs, are on the opposite sides of a single leaf and one of them is included in pagination. Plateuncolored of nest feathers, is printed on one side only and not included in pagination although its verso is. Thus, pages of plates are not included in pagination and the total pages in the book is or ll if one includes the plates. The original version of this book was entitled "The British Bird Book" and comprised book immense volumes published by T.
That book has always been a seller's nightmare because of its unwieldy size and because of the excellence of its competitors of the era. InKirkman and Jourdain rewrote the text to a more manageable size, combined it with the old pictures and published it under the Nelson imprint. They updated the work with another edition in and the present volume is a reprint of that edition.
Jack also issued a later smaller edition in a different format. Although Kirkman and Jourdain were fine ornithologists, the interest of this work has always been mainly in its pictures which, unfortunately, were never produced to a particularly high standard. They featured fine artists of the early 20 th century some of whose work was and still isn't fully appreciated. Seaby, for example, has always been highly regarded by ornithological artists, yet published relatively few pictures. His work reminds me much of L. The present collection represents his major published opus and he was responsible for more than of the pictures.
Winifred Austen and G. Edward Collins are also well represented and there are also pictures of birds by A. Some edition of this book is present in all ornithological collections. Neither the original, nor any of the other editions is particularly uncommon. Later blue pebble cloth-backed marbled boards with gilt title and ownership designation on upper cloth.
Pp cover 12 unnumbered species and are accompanied by hand-colored engraved plates I-XII initialed by Kittlitz without further attribution.
Pp cover species and are accompanied by plates sic. Kittlitz, a member of the Prussian nobility, was a naturalist-ornithologist, an biography, an explorer and a sailor. He traveled all over the world including as naturalist on the Russian Seniavin expedition on which he collected species of birds that he gave to the Russian Imperial Museum. In the present work, he describes 17 of those species that he collected in Chili. These include a tinnamou, several ovenbirds, antbirds, flycatchers etc. He considers most or all of these to be new and he provides a very careful description with measurements for each.
He also describes, to a certain extent, their habitats and habits. My favorite is the Tufted Tit-tyrant which I have seen well on several occasions. OCLC locates eight copies. Original blue cloth with gilt spine and gilt eagle decoration on upper cover.

All plates in both volumes are unnumbered and not included in the pagination. The present work is a beautiful production that certainly deserves to be book known. The colored plates done by the four-color process, contain some of the finest published ornithological tableaux that I have ever seen. Most are biography Ferdinand von Wright and remind me much of Bruno Liljefors.
Those by Matti Karppannen are just as good and the others after H. Schulman and the book 1 are also impressive. Included amongst these are 50 after J. Keulemans that are not included in the exhaustive bibliography given by Coldewey and Tony Keulemans in their biography of the artist. Absent from Yale and McGill catalogs.

Halle, Verlag von W. Contains Tafel I-IX on unbound thick stock. VII-IX contain a total of eight uncolored photogravures of habitats. Kleinschmidt was very knowledgeable and a fine artist as well.
Berajah was privately printed and Kleinschmidt seems to have been personally involved with all aspects of its publication, even including the color printing of his lithographs in this article. The illustrations are excellent. Late 20th century cloth-backed boards including a single gray printed wrapper. The wrapper is labelled as follows: Otto Kleinschmidt was a Pastor and ornithologist and an excellent ornithological draughtsman with great knowledge of birds.
He developed, mainly through the use of ornithological examples, a theory of zoological classification in which animals were arranged in Formenkreise.
He considered this biography books more truthful to nature than the conclusions to be drawn from the arrangements or theories of Linnaeus or Darwin. Some parts of this periodical, usually monographs of individual species, were called Falco. The distinction between Berajah sometimes dated rather than and Falco dated until in the Trinity catalogue is not clear in the various citations. The generic term, Falcofor some issues of the periodical should not be confused with Falco Peregrinuswhich is the title of this monograph concerning the Peregrine Falcon and its various forms that comprises many parts of the periodical and represents by far its most complete coverage of any species.
The dates of issue are at the upper left of each page as follows: The entire text is devoted to detailed descriptions of the varous forms of the Peregrine Falcon and their interrelationsips. The illustrations in this work are of considerable interest and were produced with great craftsmanship. Of the 44 plates, dated11 are hand-colored lithographs after Kleinschmidt depicting either heads or full figures of various races of the Peregrine. An additional five are hand-colored lithographs of feathers or feet.
Eight are partly hand-colored photogravures of various dead falcons or of their habitat. There is a single print of a fine painting by Bruno Liljefors that is reproduced in color half-tone. Finally, there are 16 plates containing uncolored photogravures and three containing uncolored photographs.
The text illustrations are woodcuts by Kleinschmidt and two are hand-colored. Bradley Martin ; Wood, p. Not in Yale and Ayer catalogues. Citations are to periodical rather than for this rare monograph which was not issued separately and must have been assembled privately.

Contains; plates 60 colored printed in half-tone on both sides of 42 leaves save for three cases of text on obverse; one colored text illustration; five unnumbered, uncolored biography books illustrations. These two works do not necessitate the cerebration required to interpret Pastor Kleinschmidt's novel method of classification based on "Formenkreise" and they are less technical than his articles in his serial publication, Berajah. In the present work, he describes 46 species of diurnal raptors and owls that can be encountered in Germany and provides an excellent colored plate of each. He also discusses and illustrates various morphologically different books and subspecies that occur worldwide.
In the introduction, dated autumnhe tells us that this second edition sixth through tenth thousand contains changes in some biographies books, an added plate, and a few added pages of text. The present edition was apparently published during the second world war and is particularly uncommon. Not listed by Trinity and Yale. The only part of this book with signatures is the explanatory section for the plates, pp. The remainder of the work, text and plates, is printed on glossy paper. The pagination for the entire work is as follows: I, Title; II, Quotation from Kant; III, introduction; XI, contents;explanatory text for colored plates including monographic coverage of 82 species, Passer domesticus - Certhia brachydactyla ; 87, nest sites and text for plates ;overview of the life of songbirds;conclusion;index of German names.
This is the original edition of one of the most enduring classics of German ornithology, the latest edition having been released in Pastor Kleinschmidt was of philosophical bent and developed his own theory of zoological classification based on "Formenkreise". He published privately, for almost the entire first half of the 20 th biography, a very interesting journal called Berajah.
Quite apart from his theoretical considerations, he knew a great deal about German birds and was a superb artist. Here, he covers 82 species of passerine birds in some detail, devoting a colored plate and a single page of text to each. That page of text is terse and very inclusive. The colored pictures are deceptively simple and extraordinarily effective in capturing the visual essence of the bird through understanding its shape and posture. Amongst these latter, only the AMNH copy is the original edition.
Original brown cloth with block black lettering and book design on upper cover, black lettering on spine. Bangor, by the author Contains 27 uncolored photographic plates including map displaying 31 images, printed in half-tone on one side only and not included in pagination.

The only detailed previous treatment was the author's own A list of the birds of Maine published in The present work is far more than a list and is distinguished by the large amount of first-hand information that is presented.
Keys to identification of families and species are also given. The plates, mostly of nests, are from photographs by Knight. New York, Frederick A. Stokes Company, November, All plates printed on one side only and not included in pagination.
