Beatrix Potter Studies II (1986)
1 Beatrix Potter Studies II (1986)
England The Beatrix Potter Society 1986 soft cover Very Good condition 
What a surprise find this morning! Nine years ago I bought several full years of the newsletters of the Beatrix Potter Society and four booklets like this one filled with papers presented at the Society's Beatrix Potter Lake District Study Conference. All of it is long gone, but somehow this little straggler landed with a bunch of unrelated items. The booklet's articles re these: Lake District Natural History and Beatrix Potter; The Beatrix Potter Collection at the Free Library of Philadelphia; Collecting Beatrix Potter; Beatrix Potter Piracies and Sequels; and Bertram Potter and the Scottish Borders. Booklet is very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. Measure 7-1/2" x 8" and has 52 pages.

Dresden Treasures From the Saxton State Library; Belser Faksimile Editionen (1987)
8 Dresden Treasures From the Saxton State Library; Belser Faksimile Editionen (1987)
Washington D.C. Library of Congress 1987 soft cover Three items -- Very Good 
These three items came together, including the mat for the faksimile illuminated papers. That item measures 8-1/2" x 12-1/2" outside the "frame" and 10-1/2" x 14" inside it. The illuminations include six pages which show the actual age spots and marks. The main item is perhaps the exhibition catalog showing treasured books from the Saxton State Library which opened in Dresden in 1556. During WWII many rare books and incunabula were hidden in 18 castles. The catalog measures 5-1/2" x9" and has 20 pages in ENGLISH. The Belser booklet is written in GERMAN. It's clean and nice and measures 8-1/4" x 11". The three would make a nice addition to an antiquarian collection, or for someone who appreciates illuminated manuscript and other rare books.

Jasper Johns Process and Printmaking 1998 (Very cool thing on back!)
10 Jasper Johns Process and Printmaking 1998 (Very cool thing on back!)
New York The Museum of Modern Art 1996 soft cover Very Good 
I like this little booklet very much, but was thrilled when I got it home and saw the back cover which contains a lengthy note from the previous owner. I love how she/he read Jasper Johns and came away with ideas for creating original art too. The note reads, "Maybe 14"x21. Start a book a la Jasper Johns -- in place of a journal. Draw, paint what I feel as a means of getting myself back again -- call it reclamation. Consult Julia re size of paper for binding later. Keep it very SIMPLE -- use symbols! Get down inside deep. Could use scanner, copier, computer etc. -- collage!" How fabulous that the passion of that moment was caught ON the very thing which inspired it! The booklet is great in itself with sequential color photos and 14 pages of text. Maybe it will inspire another seeking artist. NEW ENTRY -- I just found a magazine spread with color photos of Jasper Johns. Buyer of this booklet gets that too!

This is a surprisingly hard-to-find little booklet printed entirely in shades of blue, including illustrations by the subject. The booklet measures 6"x9" and is clean as a whistle inside and out. Flat crease to lower front corner is the only fault. Nice edition to any Jessie Wilcox Smith Wilcox collection, as it offers biographical and other material, including a bibliography and the Good Housekeeping covers.

Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America, 1966 Moving the Library Company. Shirley Jackson Chronology)
14 Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America, 1966 Moving the Library Company. Shirley Jackson Chronology)
New York City Bibliographical Society of America Second Quarter, 1966 Volume Sixty soft cover Near fine condition 
Very handsome journal of interest to book lovers with extra ephemera laid-in. There's lots to read here, but I think the hands-down most interesting article is the one about moving The Library Company of Philadelphia, a 235 year-old establishment which contained 235,000 volumes! How they did it is fascinating and there are wonderful photos (see pictures). Some of the other stories of note are The Identification of Type Faces in Bibliographical Description and Shirley Jackson: A Chronology and Supplementary Checklist. Inside the front cover you will find a leaflet about the Society's Autumn Meeting with information on four sides, plus an unused list of itinerary items to choose if interested. Journal measures 6-1/4" x 9-1/4" with 129 pages. Only fault is a tiny stain to bottom of front cover. Otherwise pristine.

Serial Publications; Essential Parts of the 19th Century Imagination (Robert H. Jackson Collection 1996)
15 Serial Publications; Essential Parts of the 19th Century Imagination (Robert H. Jackson Collection 1996)
New York The Grolier Club 1996 soft cover Fine 
Crisp, as new booklet with very handsome card laid-in which says, "With Compliments, Robert H. Jackson. Measures 6"x9" and has 42 pages. The Grolier Society, which published it, is an organization of book collectors, so this exhibit is all about books, specifically books which first were published in magazines in installments. This was a popular occurrence -- Louisa May Alcott did it, Dickens did it, and do did many others. The excitement of it was the wait and the fact that the author had not yet written the entire thing yet. An essay discusses this at the front of the booklet followed by commentary on the items exhibited.

The Booklovers Magazine May, 1903 (Jane Austen, charlotte Bronte, George Sands)
20 The Booklovers Magazine May, 1903 (Jane Austen, charlotte Bronte, George Sands)
Philadelphia, PA The Library Publishing Company 1903 soft cover Very good Vol. I, No. V 
In its day this was a very popular magazine. It's still popular with me, but I never seem to find many issues. This one covers the department stores of the day, a travel piece on taking a European vacation, replete with lots of full color illustrations and, --the best of all -- a long article about women novelists, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte and George Sands. All of them have stood the test of time and Jane is practically a rock star!The ads in this magazine are even fun to read, and not all of them are about books. There's wonderful ads about player pianos and phonographs --technology galore! Magazine is clean and tightly bound with a small dampstain at top edge of a few pages at front and a bit of edge wear. Overall, quite good.
