      1899. First Edition . MONTORGUEIL, Georges. La Vie à Montmartre. Illustrations de Pierre Vidal. Paris: G. Boudet, (1899). Quarto, early 20th-century full brown crushed morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated cover borders and spine, embroidered doublures, patterned endpapers, all edges gilt. $2500.Limited edition of this engaging account of Paris Bohemian life, number 499 of only 750 copies, with chromolithographic frontispiece, 15 color section titles, and 132 in-text black-and-white lithographic vignettes-all by Pierre Vidal. Beautifully bound by H. Philippe.“In 1896 and again in 1897, Montmartre BohemiansÂ… organized the Fête de la Vache Enragée, a festival which parodied the traditional Fête du Boeuf Gras associated with Mardi Gras festivities. Instead of celebrating the fatted calf, a symbol of plenty, the Fête de la Vacche Enragée was dedicated to the poorÂ… For the festivities, [participants] organized a dancing parade through Montmartre, which they dubbed ‘La Vachalcade” (Venita Datta). Journalist Georges Montorgueil devotes a large portion of La Vie à Montmartre to the poor, the Fête, the dance, and “la veilleuse de nuit.” Vidal captures MontmartreÂ’s architecture, daily life, religion, politics, the art world, music, dancing, cabarets, and nightlife. Text in French. Original illustrated paper wrappers, featuring La Vachalcade, bound in. Fine condition, beautifully bound.

        The Free Harbor Contest at Los Angeles, An Account of the Long Fight Waged by the People of Southern California to Secure a Harbor Located at a Point Open to Competition

      Los Angeles: Kingsley-Barnes & Neuner, 1899. First Edition. 8vo, pp. 211, [1], illustrated with photographic views and portraits, 5 maps (one double-page). Decorated green cloth with some soiling and insect damage, a few pages with short tears to the upper margin, but overall very good. Cowan p. 684. Willard (1866-1914) was a Los Angeles booster who began his career as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, became secretary of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce in 1891, and started the magazine The Land of Sunshine in 1894. Here he provides a detailed account of the legal battles over the location of the Port of Los Angeles, which set city officials against the financial might of Collis Huntington and the Southern Pacific Railroad. "Huntington built a long wharf in Santa Monica to compete with the existing facilities at San Pedro. He then from 1890 attempted to obtain federal funds to improve the Santa Monica port, and impose a monopoly, at the expense of the San Pedro port. Los Angeles took Huntington to court over the issue. The Chamber won and made Los Angeles a "free" harbor, independent of the influence of the Southern Pacific Railroad" (Wiki). Dawson 80:. #77: ''The Free Harbor Contest is an important book on two levels; first, it outlines the history of the harbor critical to the financial development of Los Angeles and the Southern California region, and second, it documents a classic struggle between the interests of the people of Southern California versus the monopolistic power of a large corporation.''.

        Signed Photograph of Mexican Composer and Conductor CARLOS CHAVEZ, Inscribed to the President of Columbia Records and Recording Industry Innovator GODDARD LIEBERSON

      - CHAVEZ, CARLOS. (1899-1978). Mexican composer, conductor and exponent of indigenous Mexican music. SP. ("Carlos"). 1p. 4to. N.p., N.d. To GODDARD [LIEBERSON (1911-1977)], president of Columbia Records and recording industry innovator, best remembered for introducing the LP, or long-playing microgroove record, to the public. A dramatic black-and-white, silver print head shot of Chavez, inscribed in the lower right portion of the image, "in old friendship affectionately." Although he was of Creole ancestry, Chavez was strongly influenced by Aztec culture and, after the Mexican Revolution, became a vocal promoter of nationalistic music. He variously headed Mexico's National Conservatory of Music, the National Institute of Fine Arts and the National Symphony Orchestra, which he founded. He collected folk music while at the conservatory and, later, published Toward a New Music, a volume that discussed electronic music. As the de facto voice of Mexico, he made numerous guest appearances including as conductor of the NBC Symphony Orchestra and at a concert series at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It is possible that it was during these appearances in New York in the late 1930s and early 1940s that he met Lieberson, the photograph's recipient. A bold image, neatly signed. Some minor surface wear and mounting traces along the top edge. In very good condition. Uncommon. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be requested.

        Mademoiselle de Maupin

      London: "The Walpole Press", 1899 - Grand Edition De Luxe Of the Classic on Sexuality and Gender IdentityWith Nineteen Etchings[WALPOLE PRESS, The]. GAUTIER, Théophile. Mademoiselle de Maupin. Nineteen Etchings. London: "The Walpole Press," 1899.Grand Edition De Luxe. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies (of which this is copy No. 33) on Japanese vellum. Two octavo volumes (8 9/16 x 5 9/16 inches; 218 x 138 mm.). Nineteen etchings. This edition of Mademoiselle de Maupin has been completely translated by I.G. Burnham. The etchings are by Francois-Xavier Le Sueur and drawing by Édouard Toudouze.Contemporary blue cloth. Covers ruled in gilt, spines lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine copy.Mademoiselle de Maupin (1835-1836), a novel by Théophile Gautier, "whose 'Préface' is better known than the novel itself as a manifesto of l'art pour l'art. The novel was, however, much admired by Baudelaire and Balzac, and by fin-de-siècle writers and artists, both in France and elsewhere, as a pure expression of dilettantish and dandyish aestheticism and eroticism. "It is destined to attract new readers because of its surprising and complex play with narrative procedures and with gender roles and identities. Gautier's refusal to let anything be what it appears was obviously part of his enfant-terrible strategy to confuse and scandalize the flat-footed, moralizing bourgeois and humanitarian readers he stigmatized so wittily in his 'Préface'. In alternating epistolary and third-person forms, the novel shows the hero d'Albert as in turn melancholic and idealistic, cynical and libertine (but always narcissistic), and above all desperate to break out of solipsism and monotony and find true beauty embodied in corporeal form. "Based on the strange adventures of the 17th-c. bisexual Madeleine de Maupin, who dressed and behaved like a swashbuckling swordsman and horseman, Gautier's novel, in conscious imitation of As You Like It, plays on the erotic attractions and misunderstandings of a young foursome" (The New Oxford Companion to Literature in French).

        Saratsin

      1899. First Edition . Signed. CUI, Cesar. Saratsin. Opera in Four Acts. Moscow: Jurgenson, (1899). Quarto, contemporary half dark brown morocco. $2600.First edition of the piano-vocal score, inscribed by the composer on the title page to the Russian bass Smirnov, the original Dyunia, in Russian: “To the ‘brave knight DyuniaÂ’ in fond memories, 1899, C. Cui.”In the mid-19th century, Cui became associated with a group of composers that became known as the moguchaya kuchka, or “Mighty Handful.” Centering on Balakirev, the group included Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Mussorsky. A strong partisan of nationalism in Russian music, his extensive music criticism advocated the use of Russian themes and the rejection of foreign influences in Russian music. Yet CuiÂ’s own music often used foreign sources, and showed the influence of composers such as Meyerbeer: the libretto for Saratsin, for instance, is based on DumasÂ’ story “Charles VII chez ses grands vassaux.” Text and inscriptions in Russian. A previous owner has penned on the cast list page: “Performed for the first time in the Mariinsky Theatre, November 2nd, 1899 in Petersburg,” and also written the original Russian singerÂ’s names next to their respective printed roles. Performance notations in pencil on two pages.Interior fine, light wear to extremities of marbled boards. An extremely good inscribed copy.

Punture di luce in fondo e il margine non coinvolge il disegno, altrimenti molto buono stato. Provenienza: studio dell'artista, fa riferimento al catalogo Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny nato nel 1861 e morto a Parigi nel 1932, è un importante pittore francese. Ha iniziato la sua carriera con artisti d'avanguardia come Vincent van Gogh e Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Con Émile Bernard, egli è l'inventore del cloisonnisme. Dal 1884-1893, Louis Anquetin continua ad esplorare nuove opportunità introdotte dal rilascio di Impressionismo in pittura francese. Dal 1893, dopo un lungo confronto con i "vecchi maestri", egli adotta una pittorica pregiudizio che schiererà il movimento artistico in generale, e portare via dai suoi amici. Abbagliato dalla arte barocca e la sua forza creativa, così pensa i suoi amici d'infanzia sono stati coinvolti in un percorso che porta alla morte della pittura. Crede in un "quadro perfetto", che si incarna nelle re-ricordare le lezioni di Michelangelo e Rubens, tra gli altri. Il suo lavoro diventa più convenzionale, ha sostenuto un ritorno al business, offrendo a riflettere sulle condizioni a priori di ogni possibile forma d'arte secondo le regole della prospettiva e dell'anatomia, come praticato dai maestri XVI e XVII secolo.

        THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME - Alma-Tadema, 1899.

      THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME Heliogravure uitgegeven in 1899 door Arthur Tooth & Sons te Londen naar het schilderij (Opus CCCL) van Lourens Alma-Tadema, later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: ca. 37,5 x 82 cm.Het schilderij waarnaar deze gravure is gemaakt, was onderdeel van de Royal Academy?s Summer Exhibition in 1898 en werd vanwege z?n uitmuntende techniek en schoonheid ontvangen als meesterwerk. Kunstcriticus F.G. Stephens beschouwde The Conversion of Paula als Alma-Tadema's topstuk. Kunsthandel Arthur Tooth & Sons, opdrachtgever voor het schilderij, had daarmee een nieuwe troef in handen. Volgens de brieven van Alma-Tadema aan Stephens kwam het schilderij niet zonder problemen tot stand en was hij erg content met de lofbetuiging.Paula, gekleed in een purper en amber met goud geweven gewaad, leunt achterover op een altaar gewijd aan Bacchus. Ze luistert naar de charmante maar ascetische Hi?ronymus die haar vertelt over het Christendom. Later verlaat Paula de Bacchus cult om deze nieuwe religie te volgen. Het werk vertegenwoordigt een van de weinig christelijk getinte onderwerpen in Alma-Tadema's oeuvre. Tien jaar eerder was hij bekritiseerd voor het gebrek aan ?moral purpose? in zijn schilderij The roses of Heliogabalus.Prijs: ? 3.150,- (incl. lijst).
