Holiday 2018, Catalog 64
Specialities : Children's books
166 NEW ARRIVALS await you in Catalog 64 (We know it is numbered through 167, but we somehow missed #141). We recently took in a large quantity of Christmas themed books, most of which appear in this catalog, including a rare Elisabeth Ivanovsky illustrated tale of St. Nicholas of Myra by Henri Gheon. Be sure not to miss the American issue of Lewis Carroll's Nursery Alice. We're excited about a first edition of Alexander and the Magic Mouse illustrated by Philippe Fix, which we'd only ever seen as a book club or ex-library copy. We acquired a French language edition of Grimm's fairy tales that we'd never seen or heard of before, illustrated by Gwendolen Mawe, see item #74. On our recent travels to Maine we stumbled on a stunning copy of the John R. Neill illustrated edition of Hiawatha by Longfellow. A nice copy of Jessie Willcox Smith's Everyday Fairy Book fell into our laps, and that doesn't happen everyday! There is much more to see including many signed books, Caldecott Honor books, Newbery Medal and Honor books and lastly we should mention a funny book of cats that you can read about at #28, Die Katzen in Der Schule with artwork attributed to Eugen Hartung. Enjoy![...] Read more

Buchkunst des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts in Deutschland: Interview mit Dr. Jürgen Franssen, Heidelberg (German language)Published on 01 Oct. 2018
Vor 100 Jahren kam es in der Buchherstellung und -gestaltung zu zahlreichen Neuanfängen und Wiederentdeckungen, die maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die moderne Typographie hatten. Die Entstehung und Ausprägung der Buchkunstbewegung vor allem in Deutschland in der Zeit um 1900 bis in die 1930er Jahre ist das Thema der Ausstellung.
Die Universität sprach mit Kurator, Dr. Jürgen Franssen.
