        Vases Japonais

      Paris:Paris. Box. Very Good Plus. A suite of 23 dazzling color plates of Japanese vases produced with a novel "pochoir"-like process around 1840. Each measures 46.5 by 35.5 cm, and in a small cursive handwritten note on the title page, the prints are described as "aquarelles miniatures", which happens to be the term Beauvalet used for his process. Beauvalet published a book in 1835 entitled "Aquarelle-Miniature Perfectionnee reflets metallique et chatoyans et peintre a l'huile sur velous en six leons," and in this book he speaks of a process of mixing watercolors which were to be successively applied to paper in a stencil process -- tantamount to what is now known as pochoir. Whether the procedure described accurately described fully what Beauvalet actually did so that the same effects could be replicated, it is indisputable that Beauvalet managed to achieve an uniquely lustrous effect, with colors and a sheen produced in this and the small body of other works credited to Beauvalet that were unlike anything else being produced at the time, whether through outright painting, start to finish, or any other kind of printing technology. Unlike the best chromolithography, for example, there is a softness to the color, and the tonal gradation is peerless. Notwithstanding the publication of this work, Beauvalet's process did not catch on.Just like later pochoir, to be done right the process was both labor and skill intensive -- it was not necessarily less demanding than simply traditional painting. And it would appear that even though this work was "printed", not many copies of it were made. Indeed, we have not been able to locate any other copies of this work. Beauvalet did produce two large series of plates using the same process, one consisting of 96 drawings of ancient and Etruscan vases and other objects, made at the behest of Louis Philippe, and a series of drawings of fruits and butterflies for the Empress Marie Louise (the second wife of Napoleon, who after his overthrow, became the Duchess of Parma). This group of Japanese vases was owned by A. M. Plailly, which we know from the small inscription on the title page. Unknown if the set is complete. All the vases are bright and fresh. Light occasional hand soiling to the margins. One minor marginal closed tear. Two plates with darker corner soiling, not coming close to the image (nor within the framing lines). One plate with a large-ish corner loss, also not coming even close to the image. The backs of all the plates have four paste spots, indicating that at one time the suite was matted and framed. Now housed in a modern black cloth box.

        PORT-ROYAL. [5 volumes].

      1840-1859 1840 - Paris, Renduel, 1840-1859. Cinq volumes in-8 (139 X 214) demi-chagrin havane, dos quatre nerfs plats, filets noirs et dorés, auteur, titre et tomaison dorés (reliure de l?époque). Rousseurs éparses, parfois fortes. ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cet OUVRAGE CAPITAL, «important et recherché» selon Clouzot. Il est bien complet de la vue aérienne de Port-Royal qui se trouve à la page 120 du tome V. Exemplaire de premier tirage, imprimé sur papier vergé, avec toutes les spécificités décrites par Vicaire et Carteret. Clouzot précise que «les exemplaires en reliure uniforme d?époque et possédant tous les tomes aux bonnes dates sont rares». UNE CRISE SENTIMENTALE ET RELIGIEUSE : «Vers 1830, Sainte-Beuve connut une crise religieuse: il se liait avec Lamennais au moment où, non sans remords, il aimait Adèle Hugo. Se scrutant, il crut se délivrer de son amour en cherchant à comprendre un moment de la pensée chrétienne, et il découvrait chez les jansénistes de Port-Royal une exigence de vérité répondant à sa curiosité profonde. La crise religieuse dépassée, il garda l?exigence de vérité.» (Alain Bonnerot). UNE TENTATIVE «D'HISTOIRE TOTALE». À partir de l?histoire de Port-Royal, monastère de femmes fondé en 1204, réformé en 1609 par la mère Angélique Arnaud et détruit sur ordre de Louis XIV, Sainte-Beuve éclaire la vie littéraire, sociale, politique et religieuse du XVIIe siècle; mais il esquisse également celle du XVIe siècle avec un portrait de Montaigne, s?intéresse au XVIIIe en évoquant Diderot, Voltaire et Rousseau, donne un témoignage acéré sur les choses et les gens de son époque, grâce à des allusions à Joseph de Maistre, Lamennais, Hugo, George Sand, etc. «Port-Royal est sans doute le CHEF-D'OEUVRE DE LA CRITIQUE AU XIXe SIÈCLE, mais de cette critique qui ne pouvait être pratiquée que par Sainte-Beuve et disparaître avec lui; c?est à coup sûr UN DES PLUS LIVRES DU XIXe SIÈCLE.» (Laffont-Bompiani). SÉDUISANT EXEMPLAIRE en reliure uniforme d?époque, avec tous les tomes aux bonnes dates. (Clouzot, 239 ? Carteret, "Trésor du bibliophile romantique et moderne", II, page 294, «Ouvrage capital très rare en belle condition» ? Alain Bonnerot, "En français dans le texte",n°259 ?

      New York & Philadelphia:: Audubon, J. J. & Chevalier, J.B.,, 1840-44.. The First Royal Octavo. Matted in Ivory Rag Board . Fine condition with bright original hand-coloring/ . A fine original hand-colored lithograph on paper. Sheet size: 6.5 x 10.25 inches. Drawn from nature by J. J. Audubon, FRS, FLS and lithographed, printed and colored by JT Bowen, Philadelphia from The First Royal Octavo Edition of John James Audubon's The Birds of America. Includes the text from Audubon's Ornithological Biography. The Royal Octavo Edition of The Birds of America represents John James Audubon's desire to create a democratic (affordable) work based his magnum opus; the Double Elephant Folio Edition of The Birds of America. Satisfied with his research, as well as his portrayals of North America's native and distinct bird species, J.J. Audubon here rendered a miniature yet unique version of The Birds of America. As is the case with prolific artists, Audubon continued to improve upon a body of work which was viewed as perfection. During the mid-19th century, there were no photomechanical means of reproduction, every composition was then redrawn by hand, with the aid of the Camera Lucida. For this Royal Octavo Edition Audubon and his assistants translated the 435 compositions of the Double Elephant Folio edition into 500 unique compositions of individual species. Previously documented groups of heretofore unrelated birds were now separated and divided according to species, and portrayed either on a new botanical perch or within a renewed landscape. Unlike the life-sized portraits of the Double Elephant Folio edition each bird was now sized to scale on the octavo-sized plate; approximately 6.5 x 10.25 inches. With this slight alteration, Audubon created a perfected composition, and thus offered a charming vignette view of the bird, or family of birds in its natural setting. For the Royal Octavo Edition, Audubon enlisted America's premier lithographers, JT Bowen and Co. in Philadelphia and Endicott in New York to produce the work. Every composition was drawn on a limestone tablet, inked, printed and then hand-colored with watercolor. In this format Audubon presented the undocumented birds discovered during his explorations of the American West, but not previously included in the Double Elephant Folio Edition of The Birds of America. As with the folio edition, the Royal Octavo Edition was sold by subscription. One hundred individual packets of five hand-colored lithographs and accompanying text; Audubon's Ornithological Biography, was sent to the subscriber. It was issued the first and fifteenth of each month for four subsequent years. The pagination of the Royal Octavo Edition was organized to be bound in seven volumes. This successful and popular work of American ornithology was produced in an eventual eight editions, the final edition of which was issued in 1870 by George Lockwood, New York. (Wood, Casey.
