    Most Pleasant and Delectable Tale Of the Marriage of Cupid and Psyche, The by DE SAUTY, Alfred, binder; ADLINGTON, William, translator; LANG, Andrew, editor

    London: David Butt, 1887. A Fine Arts and Crafts Style Inlaid Binding by Alfred De Sauty [DE SAUTY, Alfred, binder]. ADLINGTON, William, translator. The Most Pleasant and Delectable Tale Of the Marriage of Cupid and Psyche. Done into English by William Adlington Of University College in Oxford. With a Discourse on the Fable By Andrew Lang, late Of Merton College In Oxford. London: David Nutt, 1887. Limited to five hundred and fifty copies. Octavo (7 5/8 x 5 inches; 193 x 125 mm.).[ii], [lxxxvi], [1,], [1, blank], 65, [1, blank]. With a Pre-Raphaelite engraved frontispiece, a wonderful etched engraving of Venus and the Sea-Gull by Scottish Artist Vereker Monteith Hamilton (1856-1931), and a small engraved vignette on the last leaf. Original front wrapper bound in at end. Bound ca. 1910 by Alfred De Sauty (stamp-signed "De Sauty" in gilt on front turn-in) in an Arts and Crafts style binding of full dark green morocco. Front cover with double gilt ruled border surrounding ten floral clusters with maroon morocco inlaid bouquets and fine pointillé, all joined together by a decorative gilt bordered inlaid dark blue morocco gilt decorated branch. In addition there are fourteen inlaid red morocco butterflies and two small gilt decorated inlaid red morocco circles. The center of the front cover is lettered in gilt "Cupid and Psyche". Rear cover with double gilt ruled border surrounding four similar 'corner-piece' floral clusters with maroon morocco inlaid bouquets. There is a central rectangular panel surrounded by a double gilt border enclosing four small gilt decorated inlaid red morocco circles. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments with five decorative gilt butterflies, gilt ruled board-edges, triple gilt ruled turn-ins, top edge gilt, others uncut. Spine ends expertly and almost invisibly repaired. A superb and understated example of the genius of Alfred De Sauty. Alfred de Sauty (1870-1949) was a bookbinder who produced tooled bindings of exceptional delicacy. De Sauty was active in London from approximately 1898 to 1923 and in Chicago from 1923 to 1935. His finest work is thought to be have been accomplished between 1905 and 1914. Many aspects of his life are poorly documented. For instance, scholars are unsure whether, when in London, de Sauty worked independently, for the firm of Rivière & Sons, or both. While in London, he may also have been a designer for the Hampstead Bindery and a teacher at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. When he lived in Chicago, de Sauty worked for the hand bindery of R. R. Donnelley & Sons. He signed his work at the foot of the front doublure, if present, and at the center of the bottom turn-in of the front upper board, if not. Works he produced in London are signed "de S" or "De Sauty." Works he produced in Chicago are signed with his employer's name, 'R. R. Donnelly'" (Bound in Intrigue, Harvard Botany Libraries Online Exhibit) William Adlington (fl. 1566) was one among the host of translators that made the Elizabethan era the "golden age of translations". His Englishing of Apuleius' 2nd century CE novel Metamorphoses, better known by its English title The Golden Ass (1566, reprinted 1571, 1582, 1596) was its first appearance in English and has been steadily reprinted into the 20th century. His prose is bold and delightful, though he does not stick as close to his source as a modern translator would be expected to do, in part because he had probably translated from a French edition of the text alongside the original Latin. The book was a favourite source of Shakespeare's. The Most Pleasant and Delectable Tale of the Marriage of Cupid and Psyche is an excerpt from it.

    Figure-Prints of Japan by Barnett, P. Neville

    Sydney, Australia: Beacon Press, 1948. Folio. 53pp. One of forty deluxe copies, signed by the author. A lovely production, illustrated with thirty-six color plates. The plates are genuine prints: beautifully made modern reproductions of the originals, done in Japan. The text traces the rise and fall of the Ukiyo-ye school of Japanese wood-engraving, from its origins with the artist Moronobu in the seventeenth century, to its decline under Western influences in the nineteenth century. Ukiyo-e is translated as "pictures of the floating world," and prints of this genre depict the carefree pleasures of life: a world of entertainment and beauty, beyond mundane, everyday concerns. Ukiyo-ye challenged the traditional aristocratic and courtly schools of painting, and the plates depict people of the lower classes, including actors and courtesans, the finely-dressed beauties of the city, and tea-house waitresses. Artists of this school featured in Barnett's work include Utamaro, Shunsho, Harunobu, and Kiyonaga. Sumptuously bound in silk brocade, backed in gilt-ruled vellum. The endpapers bear prints of a woman carrying an umbrella, surrounded by borders of red maple leaves. A few very faint spots of offsetting from the plates, else a very fine copy. With the armorial bookplate of Bernard Gore Brett and a small, unobtrusive bookseller's label to front paste-down. An enchanting introduction to the art form.

Botticelli's drawings for Dante had never been reproduced with the text of the Divine Comedy.

The Nonesuch Press was founded by Francis Meynell, his wife, Vera, and David Garnett in 1922 where it operated out of the basement of Garnett's bookshop in Soho. They published over 140 books through to the 1960s, although their most productive period - when this edition of Dante was printed was during the 1920s and 30s. McKitterick 50; Dreyfus 50
