Had great fun this past weekend with the kites #kitebook #kitesurfing #africansummer #kiteboarding #umdlotibeach #lamercylagoon

Lecornu's "Les Cerfs Volants" 1902. This copy was once owned by a member of the great French manlifting kitefliers. The book is a classic although the updated 1910 edition is better. Is this a special form of marbling.....tiger eyes?

Pierre van Mussenbroek's "Course de Physique Experimentale" 1769 is not bad on kites....both electrical and theoretical....well, the Euler explanation anyway. Here are the three tomes resting on some contemporary (and later) Dutch kite tiles.

I first met Kite Kong at his house in the old, now demolished, hutong just above the Forbidden City. 34th descendent of Confucius and kitemaker to PuYi. He showed me the Last Emperor's Last Kite since PuYi died just as it was completed. Kong is one of the truly great Chinese kitemakers..and now I have his book (2 volumes, big work). Many of his kites were exquisite miniatures...like PuYi's kite on the window ledge. I will be showing these and others as part of the Chinese Kites Exhibition at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery at the Chinese New Year.

Just found some marbled paper that I made in the Basel Museum of Paper...was going to photograph it but instead unearthed this marbled endpaper and bookpate....it is George Pocock's "The Aeropleustic Art" of 1827. A rare piece on kite buggying on the Downs and beyond at Bristol. Might still snap my marbling....later.

Even #frankenbooks are loved, especially when they are very rare and early #kitebooks. Michael Angelo's 1774 "The drawing school for little masters and misses; to which are added the whole art of kite making". Price 6d....that is 2.5 nuppence in today's money. I thought it deserved closer inspection....but who is Miss Yeats?

MOST RECENT

.....kite library shelfie. DeRomas Memoire and unedited papers as part of his vigorous reposte against Franklin snitching the electrical kite glory. Lecornu on Cerfs Volants. Batut (signed) on KAP. Cavallo on Aerostation and electrical kite experiments at Islington. Revue du Genie....nice manlifting technology there. And the book (Mysteries of Nature and Art) by John Bate that shows how to make a Khymer firework kite in 1635. The tatty old one on top has Walsh's paper on "The Manuate, or Maori Kite"

What follows a kite festival is this...a book on kite flying!

It is not surprising how our mind craves what experiences provide.

....kite books don't get better than this! Three very early ones. The Khymer region kites in Babington's "Pyrotechnia" 1635 and Bate's "Mysteries of Nature and Art" 1635 are both firework kites .... The Johns knew each other and shared the same printer. Schwenter's "Deliciae Physico-Mathematica" 1636 describes two kites...this one and another linked to Kircher's aeolian draco...and Weckner/della'Porta.

An Itinerant Bookseller....huh! PBFA event yesterday at Brunel's Temple Meads Engine House.108 stalls ... lovely stuff but zilch....last stall...what is this :-) ? Returned today..... Lovely lovingly restored set of Bertin's "China....etc" 1812. Why is it that you have to get to the last stall in the farthest reaches of the empire to find the real nuggets. 謝謝您。

Flying Okame from a stick. According to Stevenson's "Japanese Kite Prints" this Tobe-e kyoga woodblock is from around 1752. Much later, in 1903, Samuel Cody used the same technique to launch his huge wireless aerial kites from the mast of His Majesty's warships. I think the paper is washi gampi...some arrived this week from the Owari Koryu-dako miniature insect kite group to be turned into little bee tako (kites) which will then return to Japan.

The fickleness of youth... the 1767 "Livre Nouveau ou Regles des cinq ordres d'Architecture" Jacques Barozzi has the kids brawling over the kite, while Sebastien Le Clerc 1774 restores geometric order. The kite seems identical...one can only assume architecture brings out the worst in people!

I feel an affinity with this flighty character from Bakin-san's book....two versions of different ages, one illustrated by Hokusai, the other by Yoshitoshi. How I wish I could read the kanji. From my FB album "Additions to my library"....mostly kites and mostly rareties. Have another similar by Chikanobu but as a print.

"The Armillary Sphere" in Benjamin Martin's "The young gentleman and lady's philosophy", 1755. A discourse on things scientific, keeping on the right side of the Almighty of course, but noting that the planetary mass estimates would improve on the next Transit of Venus. Just happened that the next Transit coincided with the book finding me. Herschel's house is in nearby Bath and is worth visiting to see the musician's star gazing stuff that allowed him to discover Uranus. Good on the Electric Kite Experiment devised by Jacques deRomas in 1752....the one half-inched by an underhand Ben.

I have a small collection of old Soviet era kite books. Hard to find but I keep on looking. Please can you translate the author of this one "vozdushnyye zmei"....best on the very old kites pre1930s...Uljanin, from Koutchino.. He co-authored a similar book with Babjuk in 1939 (which I want to find) #kite #oldbook #russian #ussr #kitecrazy #meteorologicalkite #koutchino #kitebook #kitestagram
