        Les Vierges

      1895. RIPPL-RONAI, Jozsef. Les Vierges. WITH: Les Tombeaux. Text by Georges Rodenbach. Two volumes. Illustrated with 4 original coloured lithographs by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai, plus 3 woodcuts by James Pitcairn-Knowles. 8vo., 253 x 175 mm, bound in original publisher's wrap-pers with woodcut illustrations by Pitcairn-Knowles, preserved in a new cloth folding box. Paris: Samuel Bing, 1895. First Edition, limited to 500 copies. One of the finest Nabis-influenced books. The Rippl-Ronai coloured lithographs echo the work being done by Nabis painter Maurice Denis, in his "Les Muses" painting in particular. Pitcairn-Knowles conceived the idea for an imaginary book and illustrated it with a series of woodcuts. He then induced his friend Jozsef Rippl-Ronai to create four coloured lithographs for a second unwritten book, Les Vierges. With these illustrations already finished, they approached gallery owner Samual Bing, who had excellent connec-tions in the publishing world. Bing commissioned the Belgian writer Georges Rodenbach, author of the symbolist novel Bruges la Morte, to write texts based on the Nabis-style illustrations of Pitcairn-Knowles and Rippl-Ronai. Jozsef Rippl-Ronai (1861-1927), Hungarian painter, lived in Paris between 1887 and 1902 and belonged to the Nabis group of artists which included Bonnard, Denis, Vuillard, and Maillol. James Pitcairn-Knowles (1863-1954) was a Scottish painter. Fine copies of these fragile works. Turn of the Century 64. From Manet to Hockney 12. Monod 9810.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Paris, 18. XI. 1895. - 4to (210 x 133 mm). 2 pp. In French, to an unidentified friend: "[.] It seems that my wife missed you when she passed through Aix. We should have written you; but this voyage wasn t decided on until right at the last moment; and my wife thought she would always find you. What does she write me? That you complain about me because I am not answering your letters? If that were so I would have to be excused, because I am truly a poor man, burdened down with work and whose head is getting impassive. But truly, I am an innocent criminal, for I don't recall having received a single letter from you that I didn't answer. Let's pass the.sponge, shall we? My wife, who is impassioned of Rome, had a crazy desire to return there. [As for] me, I stayed [here] at my work. My Rome is tough going for me; and besides that, nothing exists which can totally absorb me. It will start appearing in The Journal toward December 20th; but you won't have the volume [the work in book form] until the first days of May. I have my pardon, don't I? And I send you the most affectionate of presses of the hand". - Won over to social humanitarianism toward the latter part of his life, Zola wrote the cycle, "Les Trois Villes", which no longer reflected a naturalistic perspective. When Zola wrote this letter, he had already published "Lourdes", the first novel in the trilogy and was still working on its sequel, "Rome", which would later be followed by "Paris". He had, the year before, visited the Italian capital to research for the novel, and had returned to Paris with voluminous notes about what he saw and heard. Madame Zola, who had accompanied him on this excursion to Italy, took more pleasure in the trip than he did. She found it easier here than in France to bask in his reflected glory, and she could imagine that Roman society was ignorant of the double life he was leading, whereas she was sure that all her friends in Paris knew. After this first visit she returned regularly on her own for several years running; it was an arrangement that allowed the estranged couple a semi-separation acceptable according to the conventions of the time.

        The Works of E.A. Poe (including Tales of Mystery and Imagination)

      London: Published by J. Shiells and Co., 1895., 1895. 8 volumes; complete. A beautiful edition, illustrated with 24 fine photogravures, presented in a very decorative contemporary half dark red calf with two maroon title labels, gilt raised bands and gilt to spines, marbled boards and end papers; top edges gilt, others rough trimmed. Light rubbing to the spine of a couple of volumes; little foxing to page edges. An attractive set in an old leather binding. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Conan Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe's best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterize his work, as well as the Gothic horror of 'The Pit and the Pendulum' with other similarly wierd tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin; the history of the detective story begins with the publication of 'The Murders In the Rue Morgue' (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent death, in cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe's mystery of 'The Purloined Letter' is a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond. (Haining) Queen's Quorum (their first Cornerstone title), Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction. Peter Haining; Crime Fiction. Listed in 100 Books That Shaped World History [Raftery, 2002].

        Tänzerin mit erhobenem, nach rechts gespreiztem Bein und nach rechts gewandtem Kopf.

      - Bleistift und Aquarell, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten monogrammiert „JM". 17,7:12,8 cm. Verso: Figurenskizze. Bleistift. Mit Lichtrand rundum. Jeanne Mammen zählt sicher zu den schillerndsten Künstlerpersönlichkeiten unserer Zeit. Als Tochter eines wohlhabenden Kaufmannes wuchs sie frei von finanziellen Sorgen ab etwa 1895 in Paris auf. Wohl gefördert von ihrem Elternhaus begann sie dort das Studium der Malerei 1906 an der Académie Julien. Zur Weiterbildung ging sie 1908 nach Brüssel an die Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts und 1909 an die Scuola Libera Villa Medici in Rom. 1911 kehrte sie schließlich nach Paris zurück und veranstaltete schon im darauffolgenden Jahr eine erste Ausstellung ihrer Werke in ihrem Atelier. Darüber hinaus nahm sie an den Ausstellung der „Indépendants" in Paris teil. Bei Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges mußte sie mit der durch Beschlagnahmung aller Besitztümer durch die Franzosen mittellos gewordenen Familie das Land verlassen, kam erst nach Holland, 1916 nach Berlin. Hier suchte sie mit steigendem Erfolg durch Illustrationen, Modezeichnungen oder etwa Kinoplakate für die Ufa ihren Lebensunterhalt zu bestreiten. Schließlich wurde sie Mitarbeiterin der Zeitschrift „Simplicissimus" und anderer satirischer Blätter wie die „Lustigen Blätter", „Uhu" und „Ulk". Diese gesellschaftskritischen und satirischen Zeichnungen und Aquarelle, Milieustudien, Szenen aus Bars und von Kleinkunstbühnen, Bordellen und der Straße brachten ihr in der zweiten Hälfte der 20er Jahre wachsendes Ansehen und ein ausreichendes Einkommen. Schon zu Beginn ihres Schaffens ist die Fokussierung auf Frauendarstellungen festzustellen, ebenso wie die Beziehungen zwischen Mann und Frau, aber auch die zwischen Frau und Frau. Eine Ausstellung im November/Oktober 1930 in der Galerie Gurlitt folgte. Ein Jahr zuvor hatten ihr sicher ausreichende Verkäufe eine Reise in die Sowjetunion ermöglicht. 1933 wurde diese vielversprechende Entwicklung durch die Nationalsozialisten abrupt unterbrochen. Die Folge war die totale Abkehr von der vorherigen Malweise, von einer an die Figur gebundenen, zarten, gestisch freien und Tendenzen der Neuen Sachlichkeit verarbeitenden zur von Picasso beeinflußten kubo-expressiven Kunstauffassung – das war ihre Art des Widerstands gegen die Nationalsozialisten und deren offizielle Kunstpolitik. Zugleich begann sie als Plastikerin zu arbeiten. Die Zeit nach 1933 brachte bald den Verlust ihrer Verdienstmöglichkeiten durch Verbot oder „Gleichschaltung" der Zeitschriften; für die „angepaßten" hätte sie ohnehin nicht arbeiten wollen. So suchte sie sich etwa mit Bücherverkauf – umherziehend mit einem Karren – über Wasser zu halten. Nach dem Krieg entstanden aus Mangel an Farben Materialbilder aus Draht und Kordel. Ab 1949 entwarf sie für das existentialistische Kabarett „Die Badewanne" Kostüme und Bühnenbilder. Erste Ausstellungsbeteiligungen fanden schon 1945 statt. Reisen, die sie sich endlich leisten konnte folgten. Künstlerisch ist bald die allmähliche Annäherung an die Abstraktion zu beobachten.

        PONY TRACKS

      1895. Remington, Frederic. [Remington's first book] New York: Harper & Brothers, 1895. 1 page undated ads. Original tan cloth pictorially decorated in black, red, green and yellow. First Edition of Remington's first book (he had previously illustrated several others, but this was the first one that he also wrote).~Frederic Remington, illustrator, painter, sculptor, and adventure writer, was born in Canton NY... He attended the Vermont Episcopal Institute, Burlington, and Yale School of Fine Arts (1878-80), where he was more a promising athlete than a scholar; and after the death of his father he went west. A sharper soon got all his money, and he made his living as storekeeper, sheep-herder, ranch-cook, cow puncher, and, finally, stockman. All the while he was filling his portfolio with sketches.~He returned to New York; interested the editor of Harper's Weekly in one of his drawings; and when he suggested to the Century editor that someone should be sent out to write an Indian story for him to illustrate, he was told to do it himself... [K&H]~PONY TRACKS, "dedicated to the fellows who rode the ponies that made the tracks," is filled with seventy Remington illustrations, most of them full-page. Most copies are in tan cloth, such as this, but some were instead bound in suede. This is a bright copy, just about fine, with one slightly bumpred corner but with scarcely any of the cover soil that typically afflicts this volume; both endpapers have some cracking at the gutter. Blanck 16489. Housed in a clamshell case with leather label.

        James Conway Farley Cabinet Card Portraits [Black Americana Interest]

      James Conway Farley, Richmond, VA 1895 - (Photographs & CDVs) Five cabinet card portraits taken by James Conway Farley. Born to slave parents, Farley rose through talent, hard work, and passion to become America?s first prominent African-American photographer. After attempts at several other jobs to help support his family, James Farley became employed in the chemical department of C. R. Rees and Company, a photographic business in downtown Richmond. In 1875, he was hired as a photographer by another area photographer, G. W. Davis. At the Davis Photographic Gallery, Farley enjoyed a great deal of independence and autonomy by being allowed to set his own scenes and develop the photographs. His presence and skill apparently angered the four white operators at the gallery to the point that they threatened to quit unless Davis fired Farley. To settle the issue Farley offered to resign, but Davis decided instead to dismiss the four white operators. Farley?s work ranked nationally along with other photographers of the period. His photographs were displayed at the 1884 Colored Industrial Fair held in Richmond, where he received first prize.
