Oak Knoll Press, New Castle and Thomas G. Boss Fine Books: 1995. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Will H. Bradley (1868-1962) is widely regarded as one of the masters of design during the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts periods. His typographic and illustrative work pushed the boundaries of these fields into new directions. In addition, his re-introduction and use of Caslon type brought it back into popularity. The guide includes 261 illustrations, including his designer's marks to help identify his pieces. The guide includes a Book Work section containing three parts: one of 81 definite books of Bradley's own execution, one listing those exhibiting the Bradley stamp but with no confirming documentation, and one listing those using his designs but were probably not produced by him. The remaining sections document magazine covers, advertisements, illustrations, posters, and other works.

13 BRINKS, JOHN DIETER. Vom Ornament Zur Linie: Der Fruhe Insel-verlag 1899-1924 / From Ornament To Line - The Early Publications Of Insel-verlag 1899-1924).
Triton, Berlin: 2000. 3935518005 / 9783935518000 Printed in an edition of 2000 copies. h Hardcover, 2 volume set enclosed in a linen slipcase. Brand new book. 
Volume I of a series of three installments, not yet completed. Praised as "a masterpiece of book production" and "a product of enthusiasts" by critic Wilfried F. Schoeller, the book traces the early 20th-century history of the Insel publishing house. Insel earned its renown by turning book production into an art form as it printed the works of classic authors and gave a new generation of writers, such as Rainer Maria Rilke, their start. The editor, Brinks, reveals Insel's high aesthetic standards through sumptuous illustrations of its work. In all, there are 240 illustrations, seven of which are foldouts, many polychrome with three and four colors, and many with stunning gold print. One splendid example of the high-quality illustrations is the foldout of a series of classics, The Thousand and One Nights and the Decameron, the bindings designed by Marcus Behmer. The colors are so rich and the detail so striking that the reader almost feels he can touch and leaf through the deckled pages of the books shown. Another example depicted is that of Henry van de Velde's designs for the covers of Nietzsche's Also Sprach Zarathustra, as well as sample pages from the edition, both finely detailed with gold print. Text edited by Brinks with seventeen essays contributed by him and twelve other specialists such as Juergen Suess, Marcus Haucke, and Suzanne Buchinger. Essays beautifully printed with wide margins and double-spaced on Gardapat paper in cursive Borgis White Antiqua. Outstanding documentation for the essays at the back of the book, as well as detailed indices for artwork and literary sources. Accompanying the book is a slim briefcase volume containing twelve facsimile resolution papers and eight folder reproductions in their original format. In German.

15 COHEN, BEN. The Delaware River And Bay, 1600-1999: A Selective Bibliography.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle: . First Edition. h Hardcover, no dustjacket (as issued). Brand new book. 
This work is a new bibliography on the Delaware River and Bay by Ben Cohen, the author of similar bibliographies on the Thames and the Clyde. The author first became interested in the Delaware River when he read D. B. Tyler's The Bay and River Delaware, which refers to the Delaware as the "American Clyde." Tyler writes poetically of the Delaware: "Its upper reaches have the beauty and vigor of youth. When, at Trenton, it turns adventurously westward, growing bigger and straighter, it has the solidity and single-mindedness of maturity. At the end, when it swings southward to lose itself in the greater ocean, it takes on the grandeur and dignity of age conscious of its past." This comparison to the Clyde in Scotland, where Cohen was born, ignited the bibliographer's interest in the Delaware. The Delaware River and Bay bibliography includes chapters on photographs, bridges, maps, fish, ports and commerce of the Delaware, containing hundreds of annotated entries, and concludes with four useful appendices, including one on Delaware River shipwrecks. As with his other books, original title spellings have been retained for historical purposes. Author Ben Cohen, F.R.C.S., is a graduate of Glasgow University and bibliographer of The Thames, 1580-1980: A General Bibliography, first published in 1985, and The River and Firth of Clyde, 1549-1993: A Selective Bibliography, first published in 1995.

All items are collated in full, illustrations are itemized and engravings are described with details of measurements and the identification of artists.

19 EADS, PETER. H. E. Bates: A Bibliographical Study.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle / The British Library, London: 2007. Reprint Edition. h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Brand new book. 
As a schoolboy, H. E. Bates (1905-74) decided to devote his life to writing and at the age of twenty-one published his first novel. Thereafter he wrote steadily: short stories, novels and journal articles on gardening and country matters. His collections of essays were illustrated by leading contemporary wood engravers, including Agnes Miller Parker and John Nash. During World War Two, as "Flying Officer X," H.E. Bates' writings on the exploits of RAF pilots and other members of the Air Force were phenomenally successful in the UK and USA. The novel, Fair Stood the Wind for France published in 1943, was an immediate success; and again in 1958, The Darling Buds of May, the first of four novels about the Larkins family, was a bestseller. Peter Eads gives full details of first editions of all Bates' work and adds comments from reviews and the writer's autobiography. Short stories, poems, essays and articles are listed chronologically, with full details of the journals and collections in which they were published.
