DIE FORTSCHRITTE DER MARMORIERKUNST.
by Halfer, Josef
Text in German. Second edition--the first to be illustrated--of this seminal work on marbling by the Budapest based bookbinder and marbler, Josef Halfer. It was first published, without specimen papers in 1885. "The Halfer system is so important that marbling history is broken at this point, and referred to as pre-Halferian and post-Halferian marbling. The advantages of the Halfer system were two-fold: freed of the laborious preparation of colors, and with standardized colors, marblers could produce more work; and secondly, the use of carragheen size allowed finer detail in marbling" (Easton, Marbling, a History, pp. 78-9). See also R. Wolfe, Marbled Paper, 1990, pp. 124-30. From the reference library of the Zaehnsdorf Company with a commemorative booklabel loosely inserted. With the bookplate of the Zaehnsdorf Company. Tipped-in is a two page A.L.S. written by Richard Leo (see publisher), dated January 26, 1891. Addressed to a Mr. Zaehnsdorf, the A.L.S. expresses Leo's desire to leave Stuttgart and visit Zaehnsdorf. Rubbed along hinges and soiling along edges.
