This lot features 5 bound early magazine compilations which house issues from The Art Journal published by George Virtue (London). As was a popular practice during the 1800's and early twentieth century, individual magazine issues were bound together in single hard-cover volumes. The compilations featured in this lot include all the issues for the years 1900 through 1903 and 1905. These books are large format with elaborate three-quarter leather bindings with gilt embossing, full gilt page edging, and raised bands. Each volume contains an index and is profusely illustrated with high quality engravings printed on heavy stock, single-sided along with an occasional color plate.

The Art Journal, published in London, was the most important Victorian journal on art. It was founded in 1839 by Hodgson & Graves, print publishers, 6 Pall Mall with the title the Art Union Monthly Journal, the first issue, 750 copies, appearing 15 February 1839.

Hodgson & Graves hired Samuel Carter Hall as editor, assisted by James Dafforne. Hall soon became principal proprietor, but, unable to turn a profit on his own, the London publisher George Virtue purchased into Hall's Art Union Monthly Journal in 1848, retaining Hall as editor. Virtue renamed the periodical The Art Journal in 1849.

As editor, Hall exposed the profits that custom-houses were earning by importing old masters, and showed how paintings are manufactured in England. Simultaneously, The Art Journal became notable for its honest portrayal of fine arts, but its opposition to fake and misattributed Old Masters, such as a Raphael or a Titian, affected the market in such works adversely.

The early issues of the Journal strongly supported the artists of The Clique and after 1850 it became associated with opposition to the emerging Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB), which Hall considered to be a reactionary movement. Its articles attacked the PRB and its supporter John Ruskin. The most notable essayists included: R. N. Wornum, Thomas Wright, F. W. Fairholt, Edward Lewes Cutts, and Llewellynn Jewitt.

After Hall's retirement in 1880, the journal changed its position, faced with strong competition from the Magazine of Art and the changing public taste influenced by Impressionism. However, it was unable to retain its position and ceased publication in 1912.

The publication has been referred to, at various times, as London Art Journal and Art-journal. (courtesy wikipedia)

Title: Blindness
Author: Jose Saramago
Publisher: Harcourt Brace & Company
Printing Year: 1998 Author-Signed First American Edition

Condition/Details: Bound in gray cloth with bright white lettering to spine, this volume is a scarce autographed edition of this work by José de Sousa Saramago (born November 16, 1922). Saramago is a Nobel-laureate Portuguese novelist, playwright and journalist. His works, some of which can be seen as allegories, commonly present subversive perspectives on historic events, emphasizing the human factor. Saramago was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1998. He founded the National Front for the Defense of Culture (Lisbon, 1992) with Freitas-Magalhães among others.

"Blindness" (Portuguese: Ensaio sobre a cegueira, meaning Essay on Blindness) is the story of an unexplained mass epidemic of blindness afflicting nearly everyone in an unnamed city, and the social breakdown that swiftly follows. The novel follows the misfortunes of a handful of characters who are among the first to be stricken and centers around a doctor and his wife, several of the doctor’s patients, and assorted others, thrown together by chance. This group bands together in a family-like unit to survive by their wits and by the unexplained good fortune that the doctor’s wife has escaped the blindness. The sudden onset and unexplained origin and nature of the blindness cause widespread panic, and the social order rapidly unravels as the government attempts to contain the apparent contagion and keep order via increasingly repressive and inept measures. A 2008 English-language film adaptation of "Blindness" was directed by Fernando Meirelles. It stars Mark Ruffalo as the doctor and Julianne Moore as the doctor's wife.

The author's signature appears on title page. The volume is in excellent condition, and is solidly bound with clean pages. Dustjacket is intact and in mylar cover. The book measures approximately 6" x 9 1/4" and contains 294 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
