Writing & illuminating, & lettering by Edward Johnston( Book )

190 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crafts of writing, illuminating and lettering offer a wide field for the ingenious and careful craftsman and open the way to a variety of rewarding occupations apart from their very great educational value. In this superbly comprehensive volume, these three skills are clearly and fascinatingly explained with hundreds of illustrations and diagrams. The book is planned as a guide to models and methods for letter-craftsmen and students, especially those who cannot see the actual processes carried out and who may not have access to collections of MSS. Edward Johnston traces the development of writing, giving us insight into the construction of letters, and offers valuable advice on the acquisition of a formal or "book" hand. His detailed explanation of the theory and development of illustration shows how the practice of this art is one of the most simple and complete ways of acquiring a knowledge of the elements of design and decoration. The world of lettering is also fully explored together with the Roman alphabet and its derivatives. The innumerable practical applications of lettering -- most important in the making of books -- make the study of lettercraft not only absorbing but imperative. - Back cover

Faust, a tragedy by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

3 editions published in 1910 in German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend. He is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, so he makes a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. Faust and the adjective Faustian imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term. The Faust of early books - as well as the ballads, dramas, movies, and puppet-plays which grew out of them - is irrevocably damned because he prefers human to divine knowledge; "he laid the Holy Scriptures behind the door and under the bench, refused to be called doctor of Theology, but preferred to be styled doctor of Medicine". Plays and comic puppet theatre loosely based on this legend were popular throughout Germany in the 16th century, often reducing Faust and Mephistopheles to figures of vulgar fun. The story was popularised in England by Christopher Marlowe, who gave it a classic treatment in his play, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus. In Goethe's reworking of the story two hundred years later, Faust becomes a dissatisfied intellectual who yearns for "more than earthly meat and drink" in his life. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)
