A Trip through the Colortype Plant of the Zeese-Wilkinson Company 424 West Thirty third Street, New York
1 A Trip through the Colortype Plant of the Zeese-Wilkinson Company 424 West Thirty third Street, New York
New York The Zeese-Wilkinson Company 1916 First Edition Wraps. String tie. Near Fine 
Folio, 32 by 24 cm. Unpaginated, 80 pp. (including title), 32 of which are examples, or color plates, mostly of advertisements, generally ones of considerable beauty, or book covers, catalogue pages, etc. The product photographs are especially striking. Discussions of plate making with color (followed by the examples), color printing, many black and white photos of the company's plant, a brief discussion of the New York City location, and a few ads for the enterprises that contributed to the book (inks, electrotypes, etc.) Overall, this is a lovely production on color printing by a color printer, and is a hybrid between an exposition on printing and trade promotion. Light wear. Tiny corner chip on rear cover. Pristine within, with the thick glossy leaves immaculate.

2 Buchkunst: Beiträge zur Entwicklung der Graphischen Künste und der Kunst im Buche. (2 Volumes)
Leipzig Staatlich Akademie für Graphische Künste und Buchgewerbe 1931, 1935 Limited First Editions Cloth Near Fine 
1,000 and 1,350 limitations respectively. Two volumes, issued four years apart, but forming arguably a complete set of the publication. Two other volumes were later published in 1959 and 1963, respectively, but these can be viewed as a separate unit. 4to. 31 by 21.5 cm. 139, 141 plates, [11], 140, 183 plates, [9] pp. A potpourri of topics on bindings, book illustration, typography and the book arts, with a profusion of plates, a good many lucious, and the geographic sweep international, or definitively non-parochial! Topics include Charles Ricketts, O.H.W. Hadank, Carl Ernst Poeschel, the woodcut artist Hans Alexander Muller, illustrator Adoph Schrodter, Dutch, American, Swiss, and Swedish bindings of the period, an extensive article on children's books, flower books, French lithography, Czech typography of Slavoboj Tusars, S.J.A. Symons' press, the Hungarian book artist Dr. Ernst Namenyi, etc. Because of the many plates, the work is one that can be appreciated and plumbed even by those not conversant in German, but certainly the greatest value is to be found on the pieces relating to important book artists of whom there is a paucity of scholarly consideration in the literature. The two volumes are handsome, with their buckram spines and rag textured stationary paper pastedown boards. Both volumes are tight and clean.

3 Copper Engraving Printing Plate of a Horse

N.d., circa 1900. The plate, which is 4 by 3.5 inches, is essentially a negative of the image. The thoroughbred is standing still with a few palm trees in the background, suggestive of a Florida racetrack such as Hialeah. A lovely printing souvenir!

Wraps Very Good 
Stunning catalogue from printing company, replete with specimen plates, some in full color, others partially colored. N.d., circa 1914. (List of medals won at International Expositions up to Gand or Ghent 1913, and fashions within are of the teens.) Folio. 32 by 24.5 cm. Unpaginated, ten leaves. Issued in conjunction with the firm's name change from Imprimier Chaponet to "Jean Cussac", the catalogue displays specimens of various printing methods, including wood engraving, similigravure, chromotypography, (trichromie) chromolithography, with full page "ads" for pencils, shaving accessories, women's fashion, Art Nouveau lamps and a touring car. Other photos show a selection of the catalogue covers the company was responsible for, and a few of the company's operations in a newly opened plant. Throughout, the typography, the decorative devices and other ornamentation and the overall production exemplifies Gallic panache, and make this a catalogue that transcends its ephemeral origin and purpose. Scarce, with no copies found on OCLC. Decorated embossed wrappers with string tie. Small tear at bottom of one leaf.
