         ENZO MANFREDINI. Raccolta di disegni preparatori per cartoline.

      Preziosa raccolta di 52 bellissimi disegni originali firmati del pittore Enzo Manfredini preparatori per cartoline + 5 disegni originali su carta + 20 cartoline a stampa di caricature sempre di Enzo Manfredini. ENZO MANFREDINI nacque a Modena il 30 giugno 1887 e perseguì gli studi classici; alla vigilia della laurea a Torino abbandonò l'idea della professione e si stabilì, dietro consiglio di Marinetti, a Parigi. Nel 1913 la capitale francese aveva un Atelier Manfredini aperto a "publicitè, dessins, affiches, illustrations", attivo e ricco di commissioni; gloria e quattrini gli fornivano i principali quotidiani e periodici francesi (Le Journal, Petit Parisien, Le Rire, Le Sourire, Pêle-Mêle e altri) che si disputavano i suoi disegni. Difficile oggi trovare le due raccolte che egli pubblicò fra il 1917 e il 1918, l'una edita da Andrea Salmon, l'altra da Andrea Vauxcelles. A Parigi dunque, che lo proclamò il più completo ed originale dei caricaturisti moderni e dove divenne amico di Amedeo Modigliani, si svolse quasi interamente la sua attività di illustratore. Quanto invece possiamo testimoniare è la grande rilevanza che la cultura e la critica francese, inglese e spagnola diedero alla sua attività caricaturale e la considerazione che per lui ebbero quale innovatore di stile.

         ALINE, REINE DE GOLCONDE, CONTE par le Chevalier Stanislas de Boufflers.

      A Paris, Gravé et imprimé pour la Société des Amis des Livres, 1887 - A Paris, Gravé et imprimé pour la Société des Amis des Livres, 1887 1 volume petit in-4 (23 x 15,2 cm), (7)-IV-29-(2) pages, comprenant 1 faux-titre et justification du tirage (1 feuillet), 1 feuillet de titre gravé avec vignette (imprimé en bleu), 4 pages d'envoi imprimé orné de 2 belles vignettes à l'eau-forte en couleur, 29 pages de texte gravé orné de 1 bel en-tête et 1 belle lettrine à l'eau-forte en couleur, 11 vignettes dans le texte en noir, 1 page pour l'explication technique, 1 page d'achevé d'imprimer. 4 pages pour la liste des membres de la Société des Amis des Livres, in fine. Reliure de l'époque plein maroquin bleu nuit ornée d'un encadrement en dentelle aux petits fers dorés sur chacun des plats, dos à nerfs très orné aux petits fers dorés, double-filet doré sur les coupes, large jeu de roulettes et filets dorés en encadrement intérieur des plats, doublures et doubles-gardes de papier peigne, toutes tranches dorées, les fragiles couvertures bleues imprimées conservées sont en très bon état. Etui bordé de maroquin. Très fine reliure signée CUZIN. Excellent état proche du neuf. Deux petites déchirures sans manque en bordure du deuxième plat de couverture et du feuillet de garde, in fine. TIRAGE A 117 EXEMPLAIRES SEULEMENT. Celui-ci porte le n°53. Ils ont tous été imprimés sur papier de Hollande à la cuve. Il a été imprimé au nom d'un des 25 membres adjoints, M. Jolly Bavoillot, membre correspondant de la Société Les Amis des Livres et résidant à New-York, Etats-Unis d'Amériques. Les exemplaires 115bis et 115ter ont été affectés au dépôt légal. On lit à la fin : "Les Amis des Livres ont confié la Direction de cet ouvrage à leur collègue Octave Uzanne. Les compositions jointes au texte ont été dessinées par Albert Lynch. Les eaux-fortes au lavis gravées par E. Gaujean. Les lettres bâtardes du texte burinées par A. Leclère. Le volume a été achevé d'imprimer pour la Société des Amis des Livres le 25 octobre 1887 sur les presses en taille-douce de la Maison Quantin à Paris." Ce petit livre est une merveille, un véritable joyau bibliophilique. Octave Uzanne a donc dirigé la mise en train de cette édition de grand luxe pour ses collègues des Amis des Livres. C'est le seul livre dont il dirigea l'exécution artistique pour cette société qui lui laissera le goût amer du trop rigide et du trop convenu. C'est peu de temps après la mise au jour de cette édition qu'il créera fin 1889 l'Académie des Beaux-Livres ou Bibliophiles contemporains. Voici comment Octave Uzanne s'exprime au sujet de ce joli conte léger : « On ne saurait se faire une idée exacte aujourd'hui de l'engouement qu'excita le délicieux conte d'Aline ; Grimm en parle avec enthousiasme. [.] Ce fut une fureur pendant plus de six mois ; d'innombrables copies d'Aline couraient de ruelle en ruelle, de salon en salon, de société en société ; on s'arrachait ces manuscrits, on ne parlait que du conte et de l'auteur. Boufflers eut une vogue qu'il n'avait point cherchée, mais qui n'en fut que plus retentissante et le mit de plain-pied dans le domaine de la galanterie. Toutes les femmes voulurent connaître l'heureux amant de la jolie laitière, cet écrivain simple et charmant qui avait su, par la fraîcheur et la jolie tournure de son style, exciter la curiosité d'un public blasé par les fadeurs de tant de petits romans. [.] » (extrait de la Notice sur la vie et les oeuvres de Boufflers, placée en tête des Poésies publiées par Octave Uzanne dans la collection des Petites Poètes du XVIIIe siècle (Paris, A. Quantin, 1886). On voit donc que ce n'est pas un hasard si Octave Uzanne publie Aline pour les Amis des Livres fin 1887 alors qu'il s'était largement intéressé à l'auteur dès fin 1885 début 1886. Ce conte en prose, galant voire légèrement licencieux, a été publié pour la première fois en 1761. Deux ans après Candide, un an après La Nouvelle Héloïse, Boufflers donne ce petit bijou littéraire qui fait fureur : cinq éditions paraissent avant la fin de l’année. Ce conte est une [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The author Morley Roberts (1857 - 1942) was an English novelist and short story writer, best known for 'The Private Life of Henry Maitland'. Roberts was born in London, the son of a superintending inspector of income tax. Near the end of 1876 Roberts took a steerage passage to Australia and landed at Melbourne in January 1877. The next three years were spent in obtaining colonial experience, mostly on sheep stations in New South Wales, and Roberts then returned to London. For a time, he worked in the war office and other government departments, but again went on his travels and had varied occupations in the United States and Canada between 1884 and 1886. Roberts used his experiences freely in his books, the first being 'The Western Avernus' (1887). Roberts began his long series of novels and short stories in 1890. He died in London aged 84 in 1942. The writer and publisher Edmund Downey was born in Waterford in 1856. After working as an editor in the London based 'Tinsley's Magazine' he was involved in various London publishing companies in the late 20th century (Downey & Co.). In 1906 he became the proprietor and editor of the Waterford News. Downey would also write around twenty books which included the Story of Waterford and a two-volume biography of Charles Lever. Some of his books were published under the pseudonyms 'Dan Banim' and F.M.Allan. Downey died in 1937. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

         Photograph ofUSRCs BearandThomas Corwin in the Arctic ice.

      [c.1887]. - Albumen print on paper, laid down on board, framed and glazed in black and silver frame engraved with folk-art embellishments. Size of print: 285x220mm Size of frame: 370x315mm. Print slightly faded with sepia hue. N.p. [Arctic Ocean], N.d. An attractively framed photographic print of probably America's best loved polar vessel,The Bear. Here pictured in the Arctic ice, with her companion shipThe Thomas Corwin visible in the background. A Scotland-built dual steam-powered barquentine, The Bearhad an exceptionally long and varied career, spanning 89 years (1874-1963), serving in both polar regions, and under the flags of three nations - USA, UK and Canada. Originally purposed as a sealing vessel, her 6 inch thick hulls made her an invaluably strong contender in the crush of pack ice, and she was purchased by the US government in 1884 to assist with the search for the lost Lady Franklin Bay Expedition, headed by Captain Adolphus Washington Greely.Failures of relief ships meant that this disastrous expedition had attempted to make their own way south from Ellesmere Island, and by the time they were discovered by Captain Schley's rescue fleet of the USSThetis,Alert&Bear, all but six members were dead. They had endured awful hardships including frostbite, starvation and cannibalism. Greely executed one member of the crew for repeatedly stealing food. At the point of TheBear's career at which this photograph was taken, she was serving the United States Revenue Cutter Service (predecessor of the US Coastguard) under the captaincy of the monumentally charismatic Michael ?Hell Roaring Mike? Healy. Captain Healy was born into slavery in Georgia in 1839, the son of an Irish immigrant planter and a mixed-race enslavedmother of African descent. His common-law married parents sent him north for education, and he went on to become the first African American tocommand a US government ship. In USRC Bear, he patrolled the Alaska coastline, policed the illegal traffic of whiskey, saved the lives of many shipwrecked and icebound whalers, arrested seal poachers, and notably introduced reindeer from Siberia to Alaska torelievethe indigenous community's food crisis caused by the over-hunting of the whale and seal populations. He was a notorious drunk, but greatly respected by the indigenouscommunitieshe encountered in the Pacific Northwest and Arctic regions. This photograph can be identified to this period of the ship's career by the presence of her companion vesselUSRC Thomas Corwin, the two masted steam powered top sail schooner in the background of the picture. After Hell Roaring Mike, TheBearprovided relief to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake (coincidentally an effort headed by Major General Greely) and was subsequently purchased by Commodore Richard Byrd, who took her to the Antarctic on his second expedition, and then leased her back to the US navy for $1 per year. She starred in the title role in Jack London's 1930 filmThe Sea-Wolf,evacuated US citizens from Antarctica at the outbreak of WWII, then retired to Oakland as a museum. She ultimately sank with dignity in the North Atlantic in 1963, on her way to Philadelphia to become a floating sea-food restaurant.

Zaggy’s enthusiasm for bringing education to all and sundry is obvious in all his works, and this particular work, taken from his teaching atlas, summarizes several strands of thought. The division of the world into five broad climatic zones ranging from frigid to temperate to torrid had first been done in ancient Greece and Yaggy employed the idea in his ambitious atlas. The Arctic Zone features Eskimos, polar bears, reindeer and igloos. The North Temperate Zone names contains what were at that time the rapidly industrializing nations, North America, plus a vignette in tribute to American indigenous peoples, and China and Japan. The Torrid Zone contains New Guinea, Brazil, Africa, the East Indian Islands and Australia and is peopled by indigenous peoples only, along with the housing and undertakings which occupy their lives. The South Temperate Zone names South America, Australia and New Zealand. Here we see agriculture as practiced in Europe and the US, gold mining, vaqueros on the pampas and indigenous peoples with fancifully carved wooden trim adorning their homes. In the background is a vignette of a European-style city. In the North Temperate Zone, the map is illustrated with easily recognizable iconic architectural edifices from magnificent palaces in China and Japan to Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, the Kremlin in Moscow, the White House in the USA. Also pictured in this zone is a group of marble statues under which is the heading ‘Caucasian’, and beneath the heading are featured five portraits labeled German, Spanish, Russian and United States (two portraits). In addition, in the northern zone Yaggy included a vignette which suggests scholarly and artistic pursuits including a globe, a telescope, several books, a marble bust and an easel replete with brushes and paints. The concentration of these edifices in this zone is evidence of his world view. Yaggy considered the northern and southern frigid zones to be inhospitable frozen wastes, the torrid zone around the equator as the appropriate climate for the world’s indigenous peoples, the northern temperate zone as the home of the world’s advanced civilizations and the southern temperate zone as the proper site for colonial settlement. Portraits of individuals of myriad races of indigenous peoples fill the spaces which otherwise would be void. Condition: This magnificent vintage poster with its original linen backing is in B+ condition with some minor spots of paper loss and rusting which do not detract from the images. Inventory #10939

         Moralités légendaires

      Paris: Librairie de la Revue Indépendante, 1887. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Copy #89 of 420 numbered copies of the first edition. Three-quarter leather and marbled boards, with original wrappers bound in. Top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Light rubbing to edges, tissue guard over frontis portrait detached and laid in. Binding sound, text clean. The New York Times review of a later English edition comments that :"Mallarme defined the author of these 'Moral Tales' as the Voltaire of Symbolism - a demystifier of the cultural bric-a-brac of the bourgeoisie, a dandyish demolition expert specializing in disenchantment. According to Ezra Pound (who translated one of these stories in 1918), Laforgue had delivered the coup de grace to the facile exoticism (and eroticism) of the 19th-century historical novel; in clearing out the residual rubbish of romanticism, he had prepared the way for modernist prose."

         Portrait of Princess Louise, Marchioness of Lorne, Duchess of Argyll.

      - Ottawa, 1887. Original photograph, cabinet card, albumen print, 16,5 x 10,5 cm. - Topley, 104 Sparks St., Ottawa. - With on the back: Presented to Chief Inspector Denning by her Royal Highnes, 1887. With the signature of Princess Louise. (Inspector Denning. Eleazer Denning was chief inspector of the House of Commons Police from 1867 to 1887, born 1828 - died March, 18, 1911). The Princess Louise, (born Louise Caroline Alberta, also known as Marchioness of Lorne and Duchess of Argyll by marriage; 18 March 1848 - 3 December 1939), was a member of the British Royal Family, the sixth child and fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and her husband, Albert, Prince Consort. Her early life was spent moving among the various royal residences in the company of her family. When her father, the Prince Consort, died on 14 December 1861, the court went into a period of intense mourning, to which Louise was unsympathetic. Louise was an able sculptor and artist, and several of her sculptures remain today. She was also a supporter of the feminist movement, corresponded with Josephine Butler and visited Elizabeth Garrett. She held that "the subject of Domestic Economy lies at the root of the - highest life of every true woman." As an unmarried daughter of Victoria, Louise served as an unofficial secretary to her mother between 1866 and 1871. The question of Louise's marriage was discussed in the late 1860s. Suitors from the royal houses of Prussia and Denmark were suggested, but Victoria wanted new blood in the family, and therefore suggested a high-ranking member of the aristocracy. Despite opposition from members of the royal family, Louise fell in love with John, Marquess of Lorne, the heir to the Duke of Argyll, and Victoria consented to the marriage, which took place on 21 March 1871. Despite a happy beginning, the two drifted apart, possibly because of their childlessness and the Queen's constraints on their activities. In 1878, Lorne was appointed Governor General of Canada. Louise became viceregal consort, but her stay was unhappy as a result of homesickness and dislike of Ottawa. Following Victoria's death on 22 January 1901, she entered the social circle established by her brother, the new King, Edward VII. Louise's marriage survived thanks to long periods of separation, but the couple reconciled in 1911, and she was devastated by her husband's death in 1914. After the end of the First World War in 1918, at the age of 70, she began to retire from public life, undertaking few public duties outside of Kensington Palace, where she died at the age of 91.
