        Gil Blas, illustré hebdomadaire, du 6 juillet 1900 au 27 décembre 1901.

      Gil Blas 1900 - - Gil Blas, Paris 1900-1901, 27x39cm. - Edition originale. Reliure en demi-toile beige, plats de papier à la cuve, coins émoussés, coupes éraflées. Reliure de l'époque. Chaque numéro contient bien ses quatre pages, quelques légères déchirures marginales sans atteinte au texte. Contributions de Willy [Ernest Willy], Edmond Char, Jules Lévy, Tristan Bernard, Maurice Leblanc et J.-H. Rosny ("Le Baiser de la Reine") notamment dessins de Sandy-Hook, Jacques Villon, Steinlen, Weiluc, Moriss, Georges Redon, Gottlob, Prejelan entre autres. Journal illustré de nombreux dessins en couleurs et en noir et blanc, parfois en pleine page, ainsi que de partitions musicales. Gil Blas est un ancien hebdomadaire de presse écrite français, fondé par Auguste Dumont, qui a paru du 19 novembre 1879 au 4 août 1914, puis très épisodiquement du 20 janvier 1921 à mars 1940. Pendant une période, à partir du 17 novembre 1909, il fut dirigé par Henri de Noussanne et Pierre de Maroussein. Le Gil Blas se voulut d'abord littéraire. De grandes plumes s'y exprimèrent dans des chroniques qui connurent un vif succès : Guy de Maupassant (ou Maufrigneuse) dont la collaboration fut la plus longue (1881-1888), Paul Arène, Émile Bergerat, Clovis Hugues, René Maizeroy, Jean Richepin, etc. Tout aussi importants étaient les feuilletons, signés par Émile Zola, Hector Malot, Théodore de Banville, et Octave Mirbeau notamment. De son côté, Maupassant y publia « Une vie » (février-avril 1883), « Bel Ami » (avril-mai 1885), « Mont-Oriol » (décembre 1886-jévrier 1887), etc. Outre ces chroniques et ces feuilletons, Zola défendit certaines de ses oeuvres dans le journal, par le biais des « Lettres au Directeur » (sur « le Rêve », 8 novembre 1888 sur « la Bête humaine », 13 novembre 1889).

        Manuscript diary of an eleven year old boy, about half of which concerns life in Pittsburgh, Pa

      v.p., Pittsburgh, et al, november 17, 1898 - october 22, 1900 - Oscar travels with his family from Fremantle, Australia to England, where they remain for some months, before departing from Southampton for America. The diary begins abroard the German mail ship P.R. Lutpold, bound for England, with stops at Aden, Port Said, Naples, Genoa, and London. It is unclear why the family leaves Australia, where they had lived in Sydney and Perth, but it is likely in connection to Oscar's father's business. Upon arriving in America the Knights spend some time in Hoboken, before eventually settling in Pittsburgh. Young Oscar seems a polite, well- behaved boy, foud of doing his sums and attending Sunday school and he often worries about his mother's health. He does indulge in the occasional boyish pursuit, attending films and circuses, playing baseball, and shooting his home-made slingshot with his brother Eric (DIARY) 2 vols., 4to. Approx 300 pages, pen-and-ink on ruled paper in two blank diaries. Inscribed on front pastedown, "Oscar Knight. 117 Ferme Park Rd, Hornsey, 9/1/99" and with "O.L.M. Knight" ink stamp throughout.

        Original Art: Jewish Couple in Psychiatrist's Waiting Room

      Original art. Acrylic on canvas backed with board. Framed to approximately 29.5" x 23.5". Signed "X. Cugat" lower right. A couple of wrinkles on the canvas, else fine. A satirical painting of a Jewish husband sitting in the waiting room of a psychiatrist, with his wife, who is dressed like a nun. Cugat probably had as much to do with bringing a Latin flavor to American music as any other musician. Born in 1900 in Spain, he emigrated with his family to Cuba when he was five. Trained as a violinist, he moved to New York as a teenager to take advantage of the short-lived tango craze. When it inevitably ended, he employed his talents as an artist to work as a cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times and eventually had his cartoons syndicated by King Features. As sound began to be used in movies, he assembled another tango band that had some success. He took his band to New York where it became the resident band for the new Waldorf Astoria. A notorious womanizer, he had four wives and always put attractive women in his groups. He gave Rita Hayworth one of her first jobs, and his third wife was blonde bombshell and singer Abbe Lane. In the mid-1960s, he took another blonde as a wife, who became the famous "cuchi-cuchi girl" Charo. His brother, Francis Cugat, also harbored an artistic bent, and was the artist who created the striking dust jacket art for F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Shipping extra. .

        Signed personal photograph of Arthur Conan Doyle in South Africa during the Boer War.

      South Africa: Not published, 1900/01 - Photograph (77 × 82 mm). Inscribed on the verso. Minor crease to photograph not affecting the main image. Excellent condition. A privately-taken and uncirculated inscribed photograph of Arthur Conan Doyle in South Africa, where he served as a senior physician during the Boer War. This privately-taken photograph depicts Doyle standing waist-deep in a large hole, surrounded by detritus. The inscription on the verso of the image reads, "Xmas wishes. Pulling out of a hole in South Africa – like the British Empire. A Conan Doyle". Doyle was intensely patriotic, and wrote two best-selling books based on his experiences during the conflict, The Great Boer War (1900) and War in South Africa: its Cause and Conduct (1902). "The latter, translated into many foreign languages and braille, became the major international advocate of the British case in the controversial war, and bowing to his mother's insistence a somewhat reluctant Conan Doyle accepted a knighthood for it in 1902" (ODNB).

      Crayon et encre sur papier 1900 - - Crayon et encre sur papier Début XXème, 31 x 20 cm. - Dessin original au crayon, rehaussé à l'encre (technique mixte). Signature du cachet de la signature de l'artiste dans l'angle inférieur droit de l'oeuvre, et signature du cachet de l'atelier au verso. Ce dessin fait partie d'une série de dix études réalisées pour Bertin vers 1920-1925. Très bel état de conservation. Provenance : atelier de l'artiste, référencée au catalogue Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant-garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti-pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re-souvenir des leçons de Michel-Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle. Ne laissant que quelques oeuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques. En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses oeuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint-Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Le roman de Tristan et Iseut (Tristran and Iseult, illustrated by Robert Engels)

      L'Edition d'Art H. Piazza, Paris 1900 - At the close of the 19th century Wagner's opera "Tristan" opened in Paris, and many French were horrified by what they perceived as the German appropriation of what they considered "their" story. A leading medievalist, Joseph Bedier, set out to reconstruct the primordial, French version of the Tristan and Isolde story, and publisher Henri Piazza convinced Robert Engels to illustrate it. The result is one of the truly great art nouveau illustrated books. This is the first edition of both the text and the illustrations, both of which have been reprinted countless times in smaller formats and with inferior techniques. Engels' hand-colored illustrations transform every page into a marvel of design. Beautifully printed on thick handmade Vosges wove paper watermarked "Tristan et Iseut". Edition limited to 300 numbered copies. Large folio. Original wraps, with an embossed design on the front cover. Uncut. FINE AND BRIGHT, both inside and out, with the colors very fresh. In the original folding case (somewhat worn). Very rare, especially in such fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Le Rire. Journal humoristique paraissant le samedi.

      Imprimerie du Rire, 1900 - 1902, Paris, - 2 volumi in-4° (318x235mm) in legatura in m. tela turchese e angoli con illustrazioni caricaturali impresse a secco e titolo in oro. Piatti pavonati. Comprende la raccolta dei numeri di "Le Rire" dal 313 (3 novembre 1900) al 416 (25 ottobre 1902), inclusi i rari numeri speciali del periodico; l'ottava annata del 1901 è presente nella sua totalità. Migliaia di illustrazioni a colori e in b.n. n.t. e f.t., dovute ad artisti come Forain, Toulouse Lautrec, Steinlen, Valloton, Gyp, Willette, Léandre, Caran d'Ache, Fau, Jeanniot, Métivet, Heidbrinck, Godefroy, Couturier, Hermann-Paul, Jean Veber, Cappiello, etc., e contributi testuali di scrittori come Jules Renard, Willy, Allais, Tristan Bernard. Per ogni numero sono conservate le splendide brossure originali, illustrate a colori da alcuni dei maggiori artisti francesi del tempo. Bellissimo stato conservativo. Probabilmente la più popolare e fortunata rivista umoristica francese a cavallo tra la fine dell'Ottocento e i primi decenni del XX secolo (ma il periodico seguitò le pubblicazioni sino agli anni Cinquanta del Novecento), "Le Rire" adunò il fior fiore delle arti figurative e delle lettere della Francia del tempo, sferzando impietosamente soprattutto la vita sociale e di costume nelle sue più varie manifestazioni e prendendo parte attivamente alle polemiche politiche, sostenendo, ad esempio, la causa di Dreyfus nel clamoroso "affaire" giudiziario che lo vide protagonista e che ispirò il "J'accuse" di Zola.

Neatly housed in a custom half-leather clamshell slipcase.The above works are a follow-up to Madame Curie’s important discovery, in 1898, of radium and polonium. The Becquerel rays (above, called rayons de Becquerel) were later called radioactivity. In 1903, the Curies and Becquerel were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, based partly on the present works. Marie (Maria Sklodowska) Curie (1867-1934). Chemist, physicist, Professor at the Sorbonne, discoverer of the elements radium and polonium. Madame Curie succeeded her husband, Pierre Curie, as professor of physics at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1906, thus becoming the first woman titular professor at Sorbonne. She founded the Radium Institute in Warsaw, in 1913; she visited the United States in 1921 and was presented with a gram of radium-salt by President Warren G. Harding. Madame Curie was the only person to receive the Nobel Prize twice - once in physics, in 1903,and again in chemistry, in 1911. She was nominated for membership in the French Academy of Science in 1911, but was rejected by one vote, because she was a woman. The Curie (unit quantity of radon in radio-active equilibrium with 1 gram of radium) was named in honor of Marie and Pierre Curie. Madame Curie was a pioneer in the use of radio-activity in medicine, i.e., in treating cancer. This brave, brilliant and diligent lady research scientist ultimately gave her life for her work; she died of leukemia, caused by over-exposure to radio-active substances, at Haute Savoie, France, on July 4, 1934.. First Edition. Quarto.
