Kooman, Pieter
BINNENHUIS. Karakter en Sfeer. Het Werk van Bas van Pelt
's-Gravenhage: A.A.M. Stols, n.d.

n.d. (c 1938). First printing. Folio. 148 pp of text in Dutch & 127 b/w plates with full captions in Dutch and abbreviated captions in Dutch, English and French. Cloth-backed textured paper over boards with dustjacket. VG- in VG jacket. Rebacked at some point with blue cloth and what appears to be the original spine titles pasted on; this bit of original cloth is faded down to white and the original gilt is very faint. Gilt cover titles bright and clean. Overall, a well-preserved example of this title in the first printing binding. There is an exposed tab after the introduction - it's possible a page was excised, but we are unable to confirm as nothing appears to be missing. A collection of photographs of interiors featuring the modern furniture designs of Bas van Pelt's company Den Haag. English title: INTERIOR. Character and Atmosphere. The work of Bas van Pelt.

Wilhide, Elizabeth
WILLIAM MORRIS DECOR AND DESIGN
NY: Harry N. Abrams, 1991

Quarto. 192 pp; illustrated with more than 140 color photographs; pattern glossary; list of suppliers; bibliography; index. Hadcover with dustjacket. Near Fine/Near Fine, a clean, unmarked copy. Morris (1834-96] was an amazing figure, a painter, poet, translator, weaver, typographer; designer of stained glass, tiles, carpets, furniture, and tapestries; and a socialist organizer. Wilhide focuses on Morris's zeal to ``Bring art back into people's lives'' via his stunning wallpapers and furnishings, which drastically changed late 19th-century English interiors. While the book is well written and researched, its special appeal is the inclusion of numerous lush photos of historic rooms decorated by Morris & Co., along with contemporary rooms decorated from current sources.

BJORN DAHLSTROM: Designer
Stockholm: Arvinius, 2001

First edition. 9.5" x 7". [124] pp; full of color & b/w illustrations. Text in Swedish and English. Black cloth with dustjacket. Fine/Near Fine, a clean, unmarked copy.

This book showcases close to forty examples of Dahlstrom designs, everything from cutlery and furniture to a pneumatic drill for Atlas Copco and an advanced bike for Skeppshult. The concept of this book originated in an exhibition of Bjorn Dahlstrom's work held at the Nordic embassies' "Felleshus" in Berlin in the autumn of 2000. From Berlin, the exhibition transferred to the Form/Design Center in Malmo in the spring of 2001, and then an expanded version was held at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm.
