        Lettre autographe signée (1953) / Marseille

      - Fernandel Fernand-Joseph-Désiré Contandin dit (1903-1971) Acteur français Lettre autographe signée, Carry-le-Rouet, 29 juillet 1953, au journaliste du Figaro Paul Carrière, 1 page in-4. Joint : Une photographie de Fernandel en noir et blanc (14 x 11 cm) le représentant sur sur son bateau (légendée au dos par Fernandel : « Derrière moi L’Oustaü de la mar). Belle lettre de Fernandel en vacances, répondant à une enquête du Figaro au sujet des congés. « L’inévitable partie de boules comme tout bon Marseillais qui se respecte » « Cher Monsieur, Depuis quelques jours à ma résidence d’été, j’ai pris connaissance avec plaisir de votre lettre du 20 courant et je m’empresse de vous adresser la présente pour vous faire savoir que jusqu’au 20 septembre je reste en famille à l’Oustaü de la Mar, nom provençal qui veut dire en français « La Maison de la mer » ce qui me change du Square d’Anvers qui fait face à mon domicile parisien de l’avenue Trudaine. En vacances, je n’ai devant moi que la Grande bleue que je peux admirer du lever au coucher du soleil. Ma distraction favorite, je dirais même ma passion, est la pêche sur mon bateau « Camera » que j’ai baptisé ainsi en reconnaissance de ce que je dois à cet appareil. Au retour de la pêche, l’inévitable partie de boules comme tout bon Marseillais qui se respecte. Voici cher Monsieur la vie simple qui est la mienne jusqu’à la saison prochaine ou je reviendrai un acteur de Cinéma, en octobre pour mam'zell nitouches, après un repos bien mérité, entouré de ma femme, mes trois enfants et ma petite fille sous le soleil du midi et le chant des cigales. Avec toute ma sympathie à vous et à tous les amis du Figaro. Fernandel. P.S. : Ci-joint une photo récente ».

        Lord Curzon of Kedleston, Viceroy of India in Robes of the Order of the Star of India at the Delhi Coronation Durbar of 1903. a Vintage Photograph By Bourne & Shepherd

      Bourne and Shepherd, Photographers, Delhi 1903 - A very good example of the Bourne and Shepherd full length portrait of the Viceroy wearing court dress and his robes and decorations as Grand Master of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India, as he appeared at the Coronation Durbar in Delhi, approx 9 x 12 ins [23 x 30cm], mounted on photographer's card but with no photographer's credit. The photograph is in good condition apart from the lack of a small top right corner which could be masked without affecting the image of Curzon. This image shows Lord Curzon at the height of his achievements on the occasion of the Durbar which he planned so meticulously to impress India with the power of the King Emperor but at which he also somewhat overshadowed the King's brother, Prince Arthur Duke of Connaught. Size: 9 x 12ins [23 x 30cm]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1903 - 1903 Original Hardback Wisden

      Hi, This lot is an 1903 Original Hardback Wisden. In Good + condition The gilt to the boards is very bright and the boards in generally are really good but if you lok at the front board at an angle in the light you can see some darkness to it. What is really nice about this book are the hinges. 1903s break all the time, this is one of two I have held that hasn't got a broken hinge. Now the front hinge has a line on it that makes it look weak but it is still strong. The rear hinge is excellent which is so rare. The yellow pastedowns in good condition some darkness around the edge of the front one as is the pageblock. Nice clean pages and excellent photoplate. Roger Hancock (brother of Tony) has his book plate to the front pastedown,

        L'Assiette au Beurre. 1903

      1903. Arguably the finest of the French satirical magazines and directly comparable with Germany's 'Simplicissimus'. Many of the finest graphic artists and caricaturists of the period are represented - Iribe, Caran d'Ache, Villon, Steinlen, Rabier, Camara, Kupka, Robida, Van Dongen, Willette, Poulbot, et cetera. From its first number [4 april 1901] 'L'Assiette au Beurre' "was recognised at home and abroad as something unusual - at once the hardest-hitting and the most visually compelling [magazine] of its type. ...The magazine, which continued until the fall of 1912, never ceased to strike out against the alleged crimes of the establishment, of the privileged few who had possession of the 'assiette au beurre'." [Stanley Appelbaum in the preface to the Dover Publication's anthology of 1978.] The satire is not only France-centred - England, Germany, Russia and others are frequently in its sights. Bound in contemporary quarter cloth and marbled boards, edges untrimmed. Very good copies.

THE WIND IN THE ROSE-BUSH (1903), Freeman's only supernatural collection, is of greater critical and historical importance than its uniqueness might suggest. It is one of the very few bodies of work that combine domestic realism with supernaturalism, and it has been the founding document of a minor school within supernatural fiction (notably August Derleth and his followers). The individual stories are also excellent." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 163. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-71.

        The Old Violin

      Donaldson Art and Sign Company, Covington, Kentucky 1903 - Chromolithograph. Mild crease mid-image. Image: 35 x 24; sheet size: 36 x 25 inches. Classic of American art Considered the father of American trompe l'oeil painting, William Michael Harnett began his career in 1865 when he began to practice the engraver's trade. In 1871 he moved to New York and studied at the National Academy of Design at Cooper Union. It was by the mid-1870's that he first began to exhibit at the National Academy of Design and at the Philadelphia Centennial. By 1880 Harnett had realized his lifelong dream of traveling to Europe to study in the best art centers there. He went to London, then to Frankfurt, then in 1881 to Munich where he lived for four years. Shortly after his return to the United States, Harnett painted The Old Violin, the most famous of all his single-object pictures. Its fame was spread by the chromolithograph produced by publisher Frank Tuchfarber of Cincinnati, who purchased the original oil painting from Harnett at the 13th Annual Industrial Exposition in 1886. Frank Tuchfarber was responsible for some of the finest American chromolithographs produced in the 19th century. The Old Violin is indeed an extraordinary achievement and one that was undoubtedly Tuchfarber's masterpiece. It was produced from no fewer than 17 separate stones and printed on metal, glass or paper. Copies of the print exist with either Tuchfarber's name at the lower right or, with the name of the Donaldson Art Sign Company, as in this issue. The present copy is a printer's proof that, unlike issued impressions, is not trimmed to the image; it retains its margins, with their registration crosses, color keys and ink bleeds.

"By no means as prolific as other prose-writers, Raymond Bridgman published one the movement's only novels, Loyal Traitors. The story is somewhat of a non-fiction account of the movement that indirectly caricatures personalities of famous anti-imperialists like Francis Ellingwood Abbot, Moorfield Storey and David Fagen. The heroine, Faith Fessenden has the potential of being the image of feminine liberty. She is sensitive, kind, and just. The story turns on three Bostonians going to the Philippines to fight alongside Aguinaldo's rebels." - Michael Cullinane; Liberty and American Anti-Imperialism, 1898-1909.

CELUI-CI, 1 DES 220 EXEMPLAIRES SUR VÉLIN DE CUVE. Si par la date de son impression (15 mars 1903) ce livre n'appartient plus à la catégorie des livres dits "fin de siècle", il s'en rattache pourtant par toutes ses composantes. Pierre Vidal (né en 1849) appartient à l'autre siècle et a travaillé abondamment pour plusieurs ouvrages encore recherchés de nos jours par les amateurs de beaux illustrés. Il illustre avec talent Les Heures Parisiennes, Paris qui Crie (1890), un Conte choisi de Maupassant publié par Octave Uzanne pour les Bibliophiles Contemporains (1891), Paris qui consomme (1893), la Femme à Paris d'Octave Uzanne (1894), La Vie des Boulevards Madeleine-Bastille et la Vie à Montmartre de Georges Montorgueil (1896), etc. L'ensemble de ces ouvrages se caractérise par une abondante illustration faite d'après nature, véritables scènes de vie prises sur le vif. On y retrouve aussi bien la lingère que la bourgeoise, la dame du monde comme la cocotte ou la prostituée de mains, les cabarets, les bals, toute la vie du Paris fin de siècle (Paris 1900) se retrouve dans ses compositions toujours précises et vivantes. Les Heures de la Femme à Paris a été entièrement mené par Pierre Vidal, riche illustration servie autour d'un texte divisé en 24 courts chapitres : ces 24 heures de la vie d'une femme à Paris en 1900. Depuis six heures du matin avec les balayeuses, le lever de la bonne, en passant par huit heures avec les ouvrières à l'atelier, les demoiselles de magasin, ou encore une élégante de deux heures, chez la couturière pour les quatre heures ou la sortie des ouvrières à sept heures du soir ; la folie de la nuit qui commence à neuf heures du soir avec les Folies-Bergères, le Moulin-Rouge, une danseuse moderne ; enfin, la nuit est là, le ballet de onze heures, l'arrivée au bal ; minuit et ses sorties de théâtre, sorties des artistes, les après-spectacles ; la nuit qui se prolonge, trois heures du matin avec la soupe aux Halles. Cinq heures du matin avec le retour du bal. Tout y est. Pierre Vidal qui a collaboré plusieurs fois avec Octave Uzanne entre 1891 et 1894, a dû laisser à son ancien "auteur" comme un sentiment d'amertume et de jalousie lorsque ce dernier a vu sortir ce livre au printemps 1903. Tout dans ce livre est réussi : le papier, les encres, l'illustration, le format. Le tout concourant à faire de ce volume l'un des joyeux bibliophiliques de l'époque. Nul doute qu'Octave Uzanne a dû pâlir . SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE FINEMENT RELIÉ PAR DURVAND. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
