        Photographie originale de Maurice Blanchot âgé d'environ 1 an, assis sur un piédestal, entouré de ses frères et soeurs

      A. MARTIN 1900 - - A. MARTIN, Elbeuf S.d (Circa 1900), 10,5x16,5cm, une feuille. - Photographie originale de Maurice Blanchot agé d'environ 1 an, assis sur un piédestal, entouré de ses frères et soeurs. Tirage argentique d'époque. « Blanchot mit longtemps au défi photographes et caricaturistes de la presse littéraire. Minimalistes et rarissimes, sur tant d'années, sont les esquisses d'illustrations : en 1962 dans l'Express, une main brandit un livre, sur fond de page ; en 1979, dans Libération, un carré vierge au milieu de la page, portant pour toute légende le nom de Maurice Blanchot et une citation de l'Entretien infini ("un vide d'univers: rien qui fut visible, rien qui fut invisible") » (C. Bident, Maurice Blanchot). En 1986, à l'occasion d'une exposition de portraits d'écrivains, il demande que sa photo soit remplacée par un texte manifestant son désir d'« apparaître le moins possible, non pas pour exalter [ses] livres, mais pour éviter la présence d'un auteur qui prétendrait à une existence propre » . Une photo prise à son insu par un paparazzo sur un parking de supermarché, fera longtemps office de portrait de l'écrivain avant que son ami Emmanuel Lévinas ne dévoile quelques rares portraits de leur jeunesse. Que Maurice Blanchot ne se soit pas opposé à cette divulgation, que celle-ci soit le fait de son plus proche ami, pourrait s'expliquer par ce que Bident nomme « l'espacement de l'inquiétude », l'inactualité des portraits dévoilés faisant écho aux publications reportées de L'Idylle, Le Dernier Mot, L'Arrêt de mort.). Seules quelques photographies rassemblées dans les pages centrales du numéro des Cahiers de l'Herne consacré à Maurice Blanchot complètent ces clichés uniques de l'écrivain le plus secret du XXème siècle. Dans son chapitre « L'indisposition du secret », Christophe Bident consacre plusieurs pages à l'absence presque totale d'image de ce partenaire invisible, s'interrogeant sur les motivations intellectuelles et psychologiques de l'écrivain conscient pourtant de l'inévitable révélation à venir, « Tout doit devenir public. Le secret doit être brisé. L'obscur doit entrer dans le jour et se faire jour. Ce qui ne peut se dire doit pourtant s' entendre. Quidquid latet apparebit, tout ce qui est caché, c'est cela qui doit apparaître . » Maurice Blanchot, L'Espace littéraire) [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original photograph of Maurice Blanchot aged about 1 year old, sitting on a pedestal, surrounded by his brothers and sisters. silver vintage print.

A surprisingly rare book, the more so in this condition, by the iconic Maud Humphrey, who trained, inter alia, under James McNeil Whistler.

        Drawing "View of a Cliff in Soghanlü Dere (Onion Valley)" for The Century article Troglodyte in Cappadocia by J.R. Sitlingrton Sterrett

      1900 - 9 3/4x12in. Harry Fenn was an English-born American illustrator, landscape painter, etcher, and wood engraver. Fenn began his artistic career as a wood engraver but quickly switched to drawing for illustration and watercolor painting. His works as an engraver were first commissioned in 1867 (dated 1868) for Whittier's Snow-Bound published by Boston's Ticknor and Fields for the Christmas trade. He was a skilled and successful illustrator in the United States in the latter part of the nineteenth century, which was a time when illustrations in periodicals and books were the primary means of visual image sharing. He illustrated landscapes throughout the world, especially the United States, as well as recreated depictions of architecture and plant life. His enormous popularity informed the public about distant lands and led the middle class to appreciate printed pictures as works of art.

        A New Wonderland. Illustrated by Frank Ver Beck.

      - New York: Russell, 1900. 4to, x, 190 pp. Color frontispiece and 15 two-color plates within the pagination. Original cloth-backed pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, a really good copy of a book rarely found in even adequate condition. In a new box. First edition, in the first state binding with pictorial endpapers. This is Baum's first book (although Mother Goose In Prose was published first). This title was an obvious attempt to cash in on the popularity of "Alice In Wonderland"; it was late reworked and published as "The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of Mo". Aleph-Bet notes: "A notoriously rare Baum fantasy, that when found is usually lacking the frontis." Not in Cotsen, Oppenheimer, Osborne, or Gumuchian. Peter Hanff noted: "The volume has sixteen color inserts, including the title page, as follows: facing the title page, the title page, and facing pages 4, 12, 28, 38, 48, 60, 72, 92, 104, 120, 132, 152, 168, and 186. The plates, though unnumbered, are included in the pagination. Justin Schiller once had a file copy from the publisher that was annotated to indicate that the firm had run short of frontispieces."

        THE NEW NOTE IN FURNISHING BY WARINGS. (Advance Sheets)

      (London): 1900. (London):, n.d., ca. 1900. (London): n.d., ca. 1900. "Warings of Liverpool were founded by John Waring, who arrived in the city from Belfast in 1835 and established a wholesale cabinet making business. He was succeeded by his son Samuel James Waring who rapidly expanded the business during the 1880's, furnishing hotels and public buildings throughout Europe. He also founded Waring-White Building Company which built the Liverpool Corn Exchange, Selfridge's department store and the Ritz Hotel." (see: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk Ref. 2233). Around the time of this catalogue's publication, Waring had started partnering in business with the distinguished (and then ailing) furnishings firm, Gillows of Lancaster. In this particular catalogue a full page is devoted to a list of some Waring & Gillow contracts and another page lists the awards received by the "Amalgamated Houses of Waring & Gillow, Ltd"; Waring & Gillow was officially established in 1903. With showrooms in London, Liverpool, Manchester and Paris, the growing companies were expanding their reach. Underscoring that reach is the presentation of this almost encyclopaedic catalogue as only an advance on a complete catalogue made for the benefit of "customers residing at a distance". Hence the French chateau bookplate we find in the book. These "advance sheets" contain several examples of fully completed drawing rooms; clocks in various styles including Chippendale; and all variety of upholstered furniture. From the halls to libraries and bedrooms, there are illustrations of furniture appropriate for the sophisticated home.

        La Décoration et les Industries d'Art à l'Exposition Universelle de 1900

      Delagrave, Paris 1900 - In-4° (325x250mm), pp. VII, 130, bella brossura originale Liberty a decori floreali impressi en camaïeu elegantemente stilizzati, il tutto da disegno di Georges Auriol (egli è indicato con il semplice monogramma). Antiporta incisa da Jean Patricot (Lalique, Devant de Corsage). 27 tavv. in b.n. f.t. e numerose figure in b.n. intercalate n.t. Dorso restaurato. Discreto esemplare in barbe. Edizione originale di questa superba monografia sulle arti decorative e applicate all'Esposizione Universale di Parigi del 1900, fra i più importanti volumi dedicati all'Art Nouveau in tale àmbito estetico. L'opera documenta la produzione di artisti ed atelier come Lalique , De Feure, Gallé, Guimard, Tiffany and Co., ecc., nella grandiosa esposizione parigina, trattando di ogni possibile declinazione delle arti decorative: oreficeria, mobili, arazzi, legature, oggetti di uso comune, pizzi, ricami, vasellame, ecc. Roger Marx (Nancy, 1859-Parigi, 1913), padre di un altro celebre critico come Claude Roger Marx, fu critico e storico dell'arte dallo spiccatissimo e pionieristico gusto anche per le arti decorative e applicate (egli fece approntare una sezione ad esse dedicata al Salon del 1891) e strenuo difensore delle avanguardie estetiche del proprio tempo, segnatamente dell'Impressionismo. Da subito ardente sostenitore del movimento impressionista, fu amico personale di Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Auguste Rodin ed Eugène Carrière (che gli dedicò un noto ritratto).
