Warren, Edwin V.
Physical Description: 1 manuscript box (2 diaries)
Edwin Warren was born in Quincy, California, on June 20, 1881. He died in Oakland, California, in January of 1974. He was raised in Pacific Grove and attended Stanford University in the years of 1904-1908. He studied ornithology, zoology, and English literature. Very religious, he came from a Methodist family that was among the founders of Pacific Grove. He loved nature and bird watching in particular, and his journals reflect the many species of birds he encountered and the scenery he saw. Edwin made two trips to Alaska, in 1903 and 1904, pursuing his interest in ornithology and earning money for his tuition at Stanford. His first trip included a bicycle ride from Pacific Grove to Sacramento, continuing by train and ship to Juneau. He worked at the gold mine in Treadwell and relates the details of mining life. He first worked underground in the shaft, later in the three hundred stamp mill, and was also a cage tender and a powder man.

A complete run of the review, together with an archive of related material including the finished original drawing by Jesserun de Mesquita for one of the covers (vol. IX, no. 1, 19128), two original drawings for page layouts, and other items.
Published between 1918 and 1931, virtually all of the 116 issues were edited and designed by Hendrik Theodorus Wijdeveld, a Dutch architect and designer. Famous primarily for its focus on modern architecture, art, and design, WENDINGEN includes special numbers on Frank Lloyd Wright (in seven issues), Josef Hoffmann, Erich Mendelsohn, Eileen Gray, Jan Toorop (two issues), Gustav Klimt, and Lyonel Feininger. Other issues feature woodcuts, ancient oriental art and architecture, worker housing, Balinese puppetry, and many other topics.
The title of this early twentieth-century journal, Wendingen, is based on a phrase from Friedrich Nietzsche, "Umwälzung aller Werte" [upheaval of all values]. Hendrik Theodorus Wijdeveld, the journal’s founder, translated the term "Umwälzung" into Dutch as "omwentelen" [revolve], then as "wentelen" [turn about], and, finally, as "wending" [turn]. "Wendingen" is the plural of "wending." Hence, Wendingen implied a sense of turnings, as in turning away from the past and toward the future. To this end, Wijdeveld, who designed and edited most of the one hundred sixteen issues himself, oversaw the journal’s adoption of graphically innovative covers that opened to reveal beautifully gridded and typeset pages. Inspired by the notion of socially engaged contemporary Dutch architecture, the journal’s focus quickly expanded to include such topics as printmaking, non-Western artifacts, puppetry and stage design, and ancient building construction—a topical (and geographical) range very unique for its time.
Wendingen includes seven issues devoted solely to Frank Lloyd Wright (one of whose covers was designed by El Lissitzky), as well as issues on Josef Hoffmann, Erich Mendelsohn, Eileen Gray, Jan Toorop (two issues), Gustav Klimt, and Lyonel Feininger. The archive includes all issues published, dated 1916-1931. It also includes a collection of related material: the finished original drawing by Jesserun de Mesquita for one of the covers (vol. IX, no. 1, 1928), two original drawings for page layouts, and other ephemeral items.

This is the only edition of this work recording the elaborate funeral celebrations to honor the death of Cosimo II de' Medici (1590-1621) which were commissioned by the Florentine community in Venice and held at the church of Saints John and Paul. Cosimo II de’ Medici was the son of Ferdinando de’ Medici and was married to Maria Maddelena of Austria. He was Grand Duke of Tuscany from 1609 until his death in 1621, and was particularly interested in the sciences. He was Galileo’s friend and protector. The celebration was organized by Giulio Strozzi, of the important Florentine family who had been the Medici’s chief rivals in the 15th century, but later reconciled and even intermarried with them.
This book includes detailed full-page etchings showing the decorations, inscriptions, and temporary structures designed for this event by the Ravenna architect and painter Matteo Ingoli, as well as a plan of the church and views of the church interior filled with mourners. Of particular interest are etchings of eight allegorical scenes from Cosimo II’s life. The printed text describes in detail the symbolism of every aspect of the funeral celebration, and the work concludes with an encomium by Strozzi.
