An essay on typography by Eric Gill( Book )

83 editions published between 1931 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Essay on Typography was first published in 1931, instantly recognized as a classic, and has long been unavailable. It represents Gill at his best opinionated, fustian, and consistently humane. It is his only major work on typography and remains indispensable for anyone interested in the art of letter forms and the presentation of graphic information. This manifesto, however, is not only about letters their form, fit, and function but also about man's role in an industrial society. As Gill wrote later, it was his chief object "to describe two worlds that of industrialism and that of the human workman & to define their limits." His thinking about type is still provocative. Here are the seeds of modern advertising unjustified lines, tight word and letter spacing, ample leading. Here, too, is vintage Gill, as polemical as he is practical, as much concerned about the soul of man as the work of man; as much obsessed by the ends as by the means

Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

13 editions published between 1927 and 2011 in English and English, Middle and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Troilus and Criseyde, one of the most beautiful and one of the longest of Chaucer's poems, was written between the years 1379 and 1383, when the author was in his early forties. Derived principally from Giovanni Boccaccio's Il Filostrato and the Historia Troiae of Guido delle Colonne, it containes exquitse translations from Petrarch and Dante. Numerous editions have appeared since that of Thomas Thynne in 1532, and the poem now takes its rightful place in Everyman's Library for the first time. Thie new edition has been prepared by Mr John Warrington from the celebrated Campsall Manuscript, which was made for King Henry V when he was Prince of Wales; and where the reading is doubtful or obviously corrupt, recourse has been had to other manuscript sources and the emendations of former editors. The spelling has been very slightly modernized; but in no case have the words, metre or sound of the original been altered. In order to overcome the remaining difficulties, arising from the unfamiliar vocabulary and syntax of Middle English, words and shorter phrases are 'translated' in the margin; longer paraphrases are given in footnotes. The reader is thus spared the necessity of constant reference to glossaries and notes at the end of the volume. (Inside cover)

Wild thing : Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska, Gill by Richard Cork( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epstein, Gill and Gaudier-Brzeska were pioneers of modern Bristish sculpture. In a burst of daring creativity before World War I, they revolutionized their field. The three artists produced sculpture whose sexual explicitness and boldness of form shocked contemporary viewers. Examples of their works illustrate this text, including Epstein's robotic masterpiece, 'Rock Drill', Gill's 'Ecstasy' and Gudier-Brzaeska's 'Birds Erect'.--Publisher
The tragedy of Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare( Book )

2 editions published between 1934 and 1949 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Titus Andronicus is still regarded by many as a bad play of dubious authorship. Its adversaries have abhorred the violence of the action and the apparent lapses in the quality of the verse. Since 1945, however, the play has been taken increasingly seriously in both the theatre and the study: the violence and cruelty it depicts were disconcertingly matched by the events of two World Wars. Alan Hughes joins those critics who take the play seriously, arguing for its unity of theme and its grim humour, and demonstrates that it is the work of a brilliant stage craftsman, confident in his mastery of space, movement and verse." "The text is based on the first quarto, supplemented by crucial additions and stage directions from the Folio. The critical account of the play's fortunes is integrated within a description of major modern productions, including those directed by Peter Brook, Brian Bedford and Deborah Warner. In addition there is a complete stage history which includes the eighteenth-century adaptation by Edward Ravenscroft and a reconstruction of the version performed by the nineteenth-century black American actor Ira Aldridge. For this updated edition, a new section is included on recent stage, film and critical interpretations by Sue Hall-Smith. There are also sections on text, authorship and the relevance of the famous Longleat drawing of the play. Appendices explore how the play might have been performed at the Rose playhouse in London, and how it could be adapted for a touring company of fourteen men and boys. An updated reading list completes the edition."--Jacket
