《中国的南与北》China North & South

 

唐纳德·曼尼 《中国的南与北》 一系列范迪克照相凹版画,展示了中国人的生活和其周围环境的如画风景。

上海:屈臣氏公司,[1920年?].

售价: 2500英镑

 

长方形4开,用 30张照相凹版纸(15 x 21厘米)粘贴在灰色硬纸上,边框和标题用绿色印刷;就原始印刷的硬纸相册装帧而言品相甚佳。在封面上粘贴了一个小凹版照片,书脊用红绳固定,封面和书脊有一些边缘磨损和小撕裂。

 

曼尼的《中国的南与北》的第一版非常罕见,通常只会看到修订后的第二版(封面重新设计,封面照片为塔的凹版照片),图文并茂地展示了北京的壮丽景色,福建、福州和四川的柔美河景。

 

与许多采用浪漫主义风格的画家一样,曼尼更喜欢用照相凹版印刷,而不是用溴化物或白金印像法这样的原始摄影材料。机械制作的照相凹版使印刷品带有柔和、精致的阴影效果,增强了曼尼对古中国的视野。(沃里克,《照片:中国帝国1850–1912年》,第146页)

 

 

MENNIE, Donald.  China North & South.  A Series of Vandyck photogravures illustrating the picturesque aspect of Chinese life and surroundings.  Shanghai, A. S. Watson & Co., [1920?].  £2500

 

Oblong 4to, ff. [1], 30, with 30 photogravures (15 x 21 cm) tipped onto grey stiff paper, borders and captions printed in green; a very good copy in the original printed stiff paper album wrappers, with a small photogravure pasted down on the front cover, secured on the side with red cord, some edge-wear and short tears to covers and spine.

 

The very rare first edition of Mennie’s China North & South, normally encountered only in the revised second edition (with a redesigned cover featuring a photogravure of a pagoda), illustrated with splendid views of Beijing, with soft riverscapes in Fujian, Fuzhou and Sichuan (the Min).

 

‘Like many of the pictorialists whose romantic style he adopted, Mennie preferred to work in photogravure rather than primary photographic materials such as bromide or platinum prints. Mechanically produced, photogravure imbued a print with a soft, delicately shaded effect which enhanced Mennie’s vision of an antique China.’ (Worswick, Photographs: Imperial China 1850–1912, p. 146).
