Il se compose comme suit : le titre calligraphié avec très grand soin, la préface signée "Herman Hanstein. Surintendent [sic] du dessin sans les E.S." en anglais et en français manuscrite au verso*, suivie des 59 planches de dessins, contrecollées au recto et au verso sur 30 feuillets forts ; figures et constructions géométriques, modèles de construction et de décor architecturaux, machines industrielles, etc. Parmi elles, 17 sont rehaussées au lavis et 5 à l'aquarelle.

Barth, Fred Schott, B. Natkin, J. Burtch, W.Z. Nourse, Chas Haugan, A.S. Field, Ernest Noods, Sam[ue]l Pruyn, F. McNair. Herman Hanstein (1843-1917) arrive d'Allemagne aux États-Unis en 1863. Après le grand incendie de 1871 il s'installe à Chicago, où il enseigne le dessin technique à la Central High School pendant plus de 40 ans ; en 1894, il publie son cour composé d'exercices à l'adresse de ses assistants et de ses élèves, sous le titre Constructive Drawing, réédité en 1904 et en 1908. Notre album contient plusieurs dessins réalisés d'après ces exercices : Paraboles, tangentes au cercle, arcs persans et gothiques, spirale ionique, dessin d'une fenêtre gothique en pierre, paire de roues dentées, "to construct an epictroid and a hypotrochoid", etc. Hanstein devint professeur au Lane Technical College Preparatory High School, fondé en 1908. Il était également fabriquant de jouets et on lui doit l'invention d'un compas et de deux instruments de dessin géométrique, le rotostat et le goniostat (c.f. : Hanstein, "The rotostat and goniostat : a teachers' class room device for instruction in projection". School Science and Mathematics , vol.9 (9), 1er déc. 1909). Notre volume est à mettre en relation avec un grand volume de la Chicago City-Wide Collection, contenant 82 dessins, toujours réunis sous le même titre et dans le même but par Hanstein : "United States of America Public Schools of the City of Chicago.

        Examples of advertising art produced by John R. Gill for projects undertaken by the Art Engraving Company of St. Paul, Minnesota, and the Seattle Engraving Company of Seattle, Washington, during the first two decades of the 20th century, as represented in printed examples, clippings, and tear sheets, and mounted in a period album.

      1900s and 1910s, Seattle, WA, and St. Paul, MN 1900 - Oblong 4to album, with 48 sheets of stiff black paper bearing 81 items (another seven are laid in), some in color, one or more pieces mounted per page, some overlapping each other, or trimmed artistically to fit the page. The advertisements appear to be the work of the designer/illustrator John R. Gill; his photograph, at work in the offices of the Art Engraving Co. of St. Paul, as well as his business cards and billheads, are in the album. A second photograph is identified in a later hand as from the Seattle Engraving Co., picturing an office with four employees. The advertisements for commercial businesses, railroad companies, real estate enterprises, car companies, tourist guides, and caricatures, etc., primarily in Seattle and St. Paul, represent the techniques offered by the engraving companies Gill worked for, including wood engraving, zinc etching, line and half-tone engraving, photo lithography, commercial photography, illustrating & designing; two of Gill's pencil sketches for ads are also included. Some of the ads are in full color, most are black & white, a few are duplicates. In addition to the Art Engraving Co. and the Seattle Engraving Co., a few individual items were done by the Western Engraving Co., the Kennedy Co., and the Standard Printing Co. The work includes illustrations for advertisements, bill heads, stationery, post cards, technical publications, trade cards, etc., and cartoons, portraits, etc. Some wear to a few of the laid in items, occasional spotting to a few others, very good overall. Original black textured cloth. (7178) John Gill emigrated to the United States from England, working as an illustrator and designer in St. Louis, Missouri, and in St. Paul, Minnesota, before moving to Seattle about 1901. There he was a member of the Associated Cartoon Artists of Seattle, which produced a vanity cartoon book of local Seattle businessmen "Cartoons & Caricatures of Seattle Citizens" in 1906; a clip of Gill's caricature of the lawyer P.P. Carroll, prepared for that publication, is included here. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        REMINISCENCES OF KYUSHU [cover title]

      [Various locations in Japan, 1900. Ten leaves containing eighty photographs, each 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches. Oblong octavo. Contemporary black three-quarter morocco and cloth. Hinges and corners lightly worn. Bookplate on front pastedown. Light foxing, primarily to mounts and not images. Prints sharp and clear. Very good. Eighty attractive images of turn-of-the-century Japan, as seen through a Western lens. Evidently narrating a trip in Japan, each photograph is captioned in English, usually stating location. Locations include Kagoshima, the Kuma River, Kumamoto, Nakatshu, Fukuoka, Nagasaki, and Isahaya. While most of the images show landscapes and the scenery of the area, many of them include local people - at temple and shrines, in city streets, going about every day life. Of particular interest are a photograph of a woodcutter's hut, with the family in the foreground, a fortuneteller plying his trade, a group of young men washing vegetables, a view of Suizenji Park, a Buddhist Temple, threshing rice, the sulphur springs at Nagasaki, and various scenes in native villages. A nice collection of images, with the bookplate of New Zealand photo-historian Frederic Hardwicke Knight.

Publisher's decorative pale green paper covers printed in black with 'Gothic' title in two lines (some show the title over three lines, priority unknown). Original price 1d,.6s. Some trivial handling, chip to lower quarter of spine; near fine. An uncommon printing, not quite conforming to Mason's version; the preliminary leaves and adverts were never included here (ie the eralier text) yet the revised (later) address appears on the imprint.

        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.
