        Les Pastorales de Longus ou Daphnis et Chloé.

      Ambroise Vollard Paris 1902 - 4to, ( 30 x 26 cm). Deluxe Limited edition numbered 170 of 250, one of two hundred copies on special handmade Holland paper, [x], 294pp, Special edition illustrated by Pierre Bonnard, 151 original lithographs printed in black in the text. Bound in contemporary red morocco binding, large gold and mosaic decoration on the boards, title in gold and mosaic letterson spine, beige morocco linings, Indian pink moiré silk guards, lavishly gilt decorated on both chemise and slipcase by Semet & Plumelle, ( binder's stamp in gilt on front pastedown); all edges gilt; a superb copy. Vollard originally planned to publish the book accompanied by woodcuts by Maurice Denis. However, Bonnard became enthralled with the book and produced his illustrations at great speed, which resulted in them being chosen by Vollard. Unlike the radical layout of Parallèlement, Daphnis and Chloe reverts to a more formal style of layout without any reduction of the impact of the illustrations. "Like Bonnard's earlier lithographs for Parallelement and Manet's Le Corbeau, these subtle plates had little appeal in 1902 for a public that preferred the sharply defined realism of the professional engraver. The edition of two hundred fifty was not exhausted for twenty years. Nevertheless, the book is today considered one of the finest of its period"-- The Artist & the Book 28. Semet & Plumelle were famous Parisian bookbinders. Marcellin Semet and Georges Plumelle were partners from 1925 to 1955, after which Plumelle continued on his own until 1980. Their bindings often display beautiful, modern patterns such as the example above. The Artist & the Book, 28.; Carteret 4:242; Ray, French 384. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The manuscript reads: ""February 19, '80—Night [crossed out]—Just before 10 p.m. cold and entirely clear again, the show overhead, bearing southwest, of wonderful and crowded magnificence. The moon in her third quarter—the clusters of the Hyades and Pleiades, with the planet Mars between—in full crossing sprawl in the sky the Great Egyptian X, (Sirius, Procyon, and the main stars in the constellations of the Ship, the Dove, and of Orion)—just north of east Bootes, and in his knee Arcturus an hour high, mounting the heaven, ambitiously large and sparkling, as if he meant to challenge with Sirius the stellar supremacy. Walt Whitman."" This important edition was issued under the supervision of three of Whitman's intimate friends: Richard Maurice Bucke, Thomas Harned, and perhaps most importantly, Horace Traubel, whose relationship to Whitman has been likened to that of Boswell to Johnson.

        Bronze Bust of Arthur Rimbaud

      , 1902 A rare and fascinating bust of Rimbaud by his brother-in-law Paterne Berrichon. The influence of Arthur Rimbaud's poetry on subsequent practitioners of the genre and his impact on the Surrealist movement has been widely acknowledged and poets from André Breton to André Freynaud, have recognized their indebtedness to Rimbaud's vision and technique. He was the enfant terrible of French poetry in the second half of the nineteenth century and a major figure in symbolism. Pierre-Eugène Dufour made the acquaintance of Paul Verlaine, Rimbaud's lover and adopted the pseudonym "Paterne Berrichon". He was a fervent admirer of Arthur Rimbaud, He started a correspondence with Isabelle Rimbaud, the younger sister of the poet, which concluded in 1897 by marriage. Berrichon was also closely acquainted with Paul Claudel, younger brother of the sculptress Camille Claudel and maintained a prolific correspondence with him from 1912 until 1919. He created paintings, for which his wife often modelled, and sculpted this bust for the Rimbaud monument in the poet's birthplace, Charleville-Mézières. This cast, a reduction of the Charleville bust, is a superb and very rare, possibly unique work by a seldom seen artist with fascinating associations with the sitter and the French artistic world of the time.Signed and dated on the baseDimensions 10 x 4 inchesMid Brown Bronze PatinaProvenance: Auction of Oger & Dumont, Hotel Drouot 1985.

        Letters and Literary Remains

      1902. FITZGERALD, Edward. Letters and Literary Remains of Edward FitzGerald. London and New York: Macmillan, 1902-03. Seven volumes. Octavo, contemporary full plum morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and boards, raised bands, green morocco doublures, watered silk free endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut and partly unopened. $3800.Limited edition, one of only 775 copies, of poet and translator Edward FitzGerald’s delightfully anecdotal and biographically informative correspondence, his justly celebrated and cherished versions of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and other works, finely bound in full morocco-gilt.From his days as a student at Trinity College, Cambridge on, FitzGerald’s several close friendships with such luminaries as Tennyson and Carlyle “were directly responsible for one of his finest contributions to literature—his letters. Though not as widely known as his translation of the Rubaiyat”—all four major editions of which (1859, 1868, 1872 and 1879) appear in this set—“they are considered by many to be of equal literary merit. These letters are also important as being the chief source of biographical material about the man… When [William Makepeace] Thackeray was asked which of his old friends he had loved most he replied, ‘Why, dear old Fitz, to be sure” (Kunitz & Haycraft, 224-25). In addition to the correspondence and the Rubaiyat texts, this edition, limited to 775 copies, presents FitzGerald’s renditions of dramas by Aeschylus, Sophocles and Calderon. With engraved frontispiece portrait in each volume. Handsomely bound in full contemporary morocco, the boards elaborately framed in gilt rules and leafy sprays with small morocco onlays to boards and spines. Drabble, 351. Interiors clean. Spines uniformly toned to brown. Expert restoration to a few joints and headcaps. An excellent set in a distinguished, elaborately gilt-decorated binding.

        Tale of Peter Rabbit

      1902. First Edition . POTTER, Beatrix. The Tale of Peter Rabbit. London and New York: Frederick Warne, [1902]. 16mo, original brown paper boards, front cover lettering stamped in white, mounted cover illustration, gray leaf-pattern endpapers. Housed in a custom chemise and clamshell box. $20,000.First trade edition—among the earliest issues, with first-state text and earliest endpapers—of Potter’s first book, one of the most popular of not only her but also all children’s tales, with 30 charming color illustrations.In 1893, young Beatrix Potter, on holiday with her parents in Scotland, composed a letter to cheer Noel, the child of her former governess, who was suffering from rheumatic fever. ""My dear Noel,"" she began, ""I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits, whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter…"" The Tale of Peter Rabbit was born. Undaunted by multiple publishers' rejections, Potter published the first two private editions of Peter Rabbit at her own expense, both editions totaling only 450 copies—which immediately sold. Publisher Frederick Warne agreed to print the first trade edition of Peter Rabbit and presented for the first time the now-familiar format of Potter's books: the earlier black-and-white line drawings replaced by full-color illustrations and the famous prancing image of Peter mounted on the front cover. ""There are no recognizable differences between the first three printings, except that green boards were introduced after the first printing"" (Linder, 421). First-state text with ""wept big tears"" on page 51, gray leaf pattern endpapers (later changed) and illustrations removed from later editions, such as Potter's caricature of herself as Mrs. McGregor holding a rabbit pie (page 14). Without scarce original dust jacket. Quinby 2. Contemporary gift inscription dated Christmas 1902.Infrequent scattered light soiling to interior; binding exceptionally lovely and fine. A beautiful copy, most rare in this condition.

      London: Frederick Warne and Co.,, [1902]. Sextodecimo. Original grey paper-covered boards, titles to spine and front board white, grey leaf-patterned endpapers. Frontispiece and 30 colour illustrations by the author. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Small tear and a little wear to head of spine, tiny split to head of front joint, but sound, covers and tips a little rubbed, a couple of small marks to p. 44, otherwise internally bright. An excellent copy, in unusually nice condition. First trade edition, first impression. Warne had reconsidered the "Bunny book", as they called it, following a second approach from Potter's friend Hardwicke Rawnsley, an author of children's verses who had rewritten the text in his own style. Warne were now prepared to publish it (though in a slight to Rawnsley, they preferred Potter's prose to his verse), on the proviso that Potter provide colour illustrations for the entire story; Potter finally agreed, knowing the book would first appear as she had envisioned, but in turn insisted that the illustrations be printed in the more expensive three-colour process, and the price must be one that "little rabbits could afford". In 1903, to make room for the introduction of the illustrated endpapers, four plates (including the one of Mrs McGregor and the pie) were withdrawn from the publication. The first trade edition has leaf-pattern endpapers and the text "wept big tears" on p. 51 (the text reads "cried big tears" in the privately printed edition; "wept big tears" in the first three impressions of the trade edition; and "shed big tears" from the fourth impression onwards).

        Marvellous large cabinet photo by Carl Jagerspacher of Vienna, (Amelie Caroline Charlotte, 1853-1933, daughter of King Christian IX of Denmark, sister of Queen Alexandra) with her two youngest daughters OLGA (1884-1958) & ALEXANDRA (1882-1945)

      1902 - signed by all three, but with Thyra's signature almost indecipherable, showing her seated with her daughters behind her, all three wearing white dresses and hats, 8" x 5½", in charming original gilt frame with ribbon decoration on the top, 9" x 5½", no place, no date, circa Never as close as her sisters Alexandra & Dagmar were, she increasingly became detached from her family and the fact that her son married the daughter of the last Kaiser of Germany, who both the Empress and the Queen detested, increased her isolation. By the 1920s she became very involved with the dowager Empress and the Anastasia saga. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      South Paris, Maine. J.H. Stuart & Co. 1902-03. 12th Edition. Folio volume 18.5 x 15 inches; 108 pages with handcolored maps on pages 20, 27-96 (single and double page tipped-in), and two additional unnumbered double-page color maps. The large folding map of the state (pp. 1-4) is MISSING. Joints are broken but still attached by cloth, spine has been clumsily repaired with heavy paper which has disintegrated over time. There is a 2.5 inch abraded area along the cover's top edge; corners are bumped. An approximately 1.5 by 2.25 inch irregularly shaped stain to the front cover has penetrated the first 22 pp of the volume (the text section), gradually becoming smaller as it soaked through the pages until it is no longer visible. It appears as a small light spot (.5 inch circle) on only one map (Rail Road Map of Maine with Watershed Map of Maine on verso). There is a very light line of dampstaining to the lower right edge of the first pages, not affecting any text or map. Several areas of the Rail Road Map are marked by red pencil check marks. There are two tiny (.5 x .25 inch) spots in the margin of the map of Oxford county (#71). Overall the maps are in very good condition, clean and bright, with hand coloring. Two attractive double page Gray maps are at the rear of the volume (New Map of the United States and New Map of the World in Hemispheres) followed by a Directory of significant "Business Firms and Professional Men" to be found in Maine. Overall, a desirable item at an attractive price with contents chiefly in very good condition.
