PRINTING PLACES: LOCATIONS OF BOOK PRODUCTION & DISTRIBUTION SINCE 1500
Hinks, John and Catherine Armstrong (editors)
This seventh Print Networks volume is a collection of essays presented at the 2002 Conference on the History of the Book Trade. The theme reinforces the importance of studying specific local factors alongside the wider picture of printing history. As with the other volumes in the Print Networks series, the scope of these scholarly essays is wide-ranging: the book trade in Britain, including links with the former colonies, in early modern and modern times. This collection of essays clearly reflects the book-trade history and is a lively engagement with other historical approaches: cultural, social, economic and intellectual. Edited by John Hinks and Catherine Armstrong to noted scholars in this field. Co-published with the British Library. Available in the UK from The British Library.

CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ DE L'OEUVRE DE FEU GEORGE FREDERIC SCH...
by Crayen, Auguste Guillaume
First edition signed by the author at the end of the introduction. Dedicated to Monsieur Wille, graveur du roi de France, de L'Académie Royale de peinture et de plusiers autres académies. This copy of the book carries the signature and annotations of Franz Rechberger (1771-1841), a painter and engraver who was the personal curator of the Austrian collector, patron, and bibliophile le Comte Moritz von Fries (1777-1826). (For further information on Rechberger see Bénézit, 8 p.639, and Nagler, Die Monogrammisten II p.863.) The Comte de Fries was a patron of Ludwig van Beethoven and friend of Franz Schubert. He had amassed a collection of over 16,000 books (mostly large, illustrated works of the 18th century), 300 paintings and 100,000 drawings and prints representing all schools, before it had to be sold as a result of his bankruptcy in 1826. The collection is now dispersed throughout various public and private European collections. This book is annotated by Rechberger with notations of which prints were owned by Fries. Includes a complete catalogue of the prints and bookplates made by Schmidt. The book opens with a fine etching of Schmidt by "Wagner à Leipsic." Head and tail of spine with small chips, some rubbing to hinges. Bookplate on front pastedowns of Theodor Noderer and one indicating that this book came from the reference library and stock of H. P. Kraus. A commemorative booklabel which indicates that this set came from the reference library of H.P. Kraus purchased by Oak Knoll Books at the auction sale is loosely inserted. Covers cracked along front hinge.
