AT3A. (Durer, A), Thausing, M, Albert Durer: His Life and Work, 1st English edition, John Murray 1882, complete in 2 volumes, rebound in matching quarter charcoal roan over blue cloth boards, 16 + 376pp, with illustrations in the text + a frontispiece and 6 plates, 8 + 347pp including index, with illustrations in the text + a frontispiece and 13 plates (one folding), title pages decorated in red, translated from the German and edited by F.A. Eaton. Arguably one of the best and most comprehensive biographical studies of Durer’s life and work, with a splendid set of illustrations from engraved initial letters to the familiar esoteric and religious themed scenes. Ex lib, minimal trace, gilt file numbers to spines, book plates to front paste-downs, and small stamps to verso of title pages, a few minor marks to covers, minor spotting to prelims otherwise internally clean and tight. Margin to one plate in volume one rather ragged and soiled with a few small tears, one of which slightly affects the image but without loss, smallish chip to margin of one leaf in volume two with loss of a couple of letters either side, a shame as these are otherwise a near very good, but consequently cheap set of the scarce first English issue £25

AT5A. Lothrop, S.K, Treasures of Ancient America, 1 st edition, Skira 1964, Square folio, red cloth, 14 + 230pp including index, with 144 illustrations (of 145), 84 (of 85) in full colour, a few as line drawings in text, but most as large tipped in plates, with a full page map. The arts of the pre-Columbian civilizations of America from Mexico to Peru. Covers Aztecs, Maya, Chavin, Nazca, Toltec, etc, with a particular focus on religious and magical art. With the ownership signature of Austin Osman Spare aficionado Gavin W Semple to the front paste down. Minor stain to top of front end papers. Sadly lacking one tipped in coloured plate, otherwise a very good, clean and tight copy in good - (edge worn, marked, two sizable chips to top of front panel, though not affecting text or image, worn at ends of folds, a couple of closed, repaired tears to front panel) d/w £8

AT9AC. Spare, A.O, Automatic Drawing, 1st edition thus, I.H.O small 4to pbk. 2005, unpaginated (82pp + advertisement leaf), with a small coloured portrait of the author and many b/w illustrations, some full page; a reprint of Spare’s 1925 Book of Automatic Drawings, first published by Catalpa Press in 1972, together with related material by Spare, Frederick Carter, and Hannen Swaffer; light rubbing to corners, internally and externally clean and tight, a near fine copy of this increasingly uncommon title £40
