        LES HEURES DE LA FEMME A PARIS. Tableaux parisiens dessinés, gravés à l'eau-forte et accompagnés d'un texte par Pierre Vidal.

      Éditions Boudet, Librairie Lahure, Paris, 1903 - 1 volume in-4 (24 x 18,5 cm) de VIII-192-(1) pages. 96 aquatintes d'après les aquarelles de l'artiste (48 hors-textes 3/4 de page, 24 grandes vignettes d'en-tête et 24 culs-de-lampe. Premier plat de couverture illustré de la reproduction d'une grande composition de l'artiste à l'aquarelle. Prospectus de l'éditeur relié in fine (4 pages dont 1 hors-texte à l'aquatinte). 150 frises de fleurs variées par l'artiste et mises en couleurs à l'aquarelle au pinceau à la main par le coloriste E. Greningaire. Reliure de l'époque demi-maroquin rose à larges coins, filets dorés, dos lisse richement orné de feuillages fleuris avec délicates pastilles de mosaïque de maroquin vert pour les fleurs. Tête dorée, non rogné, relié sur brochure, deux plats de couverture conservés (seul le premier plat est illustré) en parfait état. Ensemble à l'état proche du neuf (reliure signée DURVAND). ÉDITION ORIGINALE ET UNIQUE ÉDITION. TIRAGE A 250 EXEMPLAIRES SEULEMENT. Il a été tiré 25 exemplaires sur Japon avec suite, 5 exemplaires sur Japon nominatifs et 220 exemplaires sur vélin de cuve des papeteries du Marais, fabriqué spécialement pour cet ouvrage. 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]

        A Malay - English Dictionary.: Part I: (Alif to Za). Part II: (Sin to Nya). Arranged according to the Jawi alphabet. Index.

      Singapore Kelly & Walsh. 1903 - The complete first edition as issued in January 1903, with appendices, index, addenda and corrigenda, and the 1903 title page and preface. A monumental work, and still the most useful dictionary for Jawi Malay. Wilkinson served in the Malayan Civil Service from 1889 and spent much of his spare time collecting words and testing meanings with local informants. After this dictionary was published in parts between 1901 and 1903 he continued his researches till he left Malaya in 1915. He was the first to supersede Marsden's Dictionary, and with this work "Malay and English lexicography had been brought almost to its peak" - Russell Jones in his introduction to the reprint of Marsdens Dictionary and Grammar. This peak he attained with his later Rumi dictionary in 1932. Contemporary half calf, neatly re-backed, preserving original spine. A very good copy.

        Form & Farbe im Fla¨chenschmuck.

      Stuttgart. Julius Hoffman. No date. Ca. 1903. 13 ONLY (of 24) color lithograph plates, sheets 18 x 13 inches, cloth covered thin boards (hardbound). Covers moderately soiled; the plates are in excellent condition with light spots to a few outer margins. AS IS. This is a gathering of 13 of the plates from the collection Form & Farbe im Flachenschmuck, originally published in a portfolio but here bound into a serviceable cloth binding; paint marks on the cover suggest that it was actually used in an artist's studio. A paper label for the bookstore Ludvig Schuth of Kobenhavn has been glued over the what was likely the original publisher's name. Each plate features a number of stunning Art Nouveau wall covering designs by artists Rudolph Rochga and Paul Haustein. While the visual motif is overwhelmingly Art Nouveau, a number of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics to emerge in upcoming decades.

The hilly topography of the city and surrounding area is clearly demonstrated, and Mount Hood can be seen in the fifth panel. The photographer, L.C. Henrichsen, was born in Denmark and to Portland in 1861, where he had a long career as a prominent jeweler and optician. A scarce image, with OCLC locating only eight copies.

        The Civil Code of Lower Canada and the Bills of Exchange Act 1890: With All Statutory Amendments Verified, Collated and Indexed

      C. Theoret Law Book Publisher, Montreal 1903 First Edition Cloth and Leather Bound Hardcover Near Fine/--/No Dust Jacket. 6 3/4H x 5 1/8W x 7/8 inch NON SMOKING STORE. My listing includes PHOTO OF ACTUAL BOOK for sale. Book NEAR FINE/ Covers Very Good Plus. Very gently read, if at all. Sewn binding. In its original boards which have a design in blue, red, black, light brown and white in a kind of "c" shape with the opening of the "c" downwards. The spine, quarter boards and triangular covers of all corners are brown leather. The spine has 4 raised sections done in a rope design, two of them framing a red area where the title is done in gilt. The front cover has the paper worn away on top and bottom board edges, exposing the board but with almost no erosion of the boards. The front cover design area has several areas where it is worn away but only the surface design is gone, the board is whole and strong underneath, there are no holes and no gouges or rips. The front cover leather corners are scuffed on the outer edges but there are no holes in the leather. The front cover section of the leather spine is scuffed a bit on the line where it joins the spine itself, in the areas of the rope design, and also a bit at the top and bottom and the edges. The spine itself is rubbed on the top and bottom and same edges as well as the higher parts of the rope design but the rope design is not worn down and the detail is not worn away, the red colour and gilt title are also bright and clear and have no wear. The back cover is in the same condition as the front. All paper edges have the surface paper worn off and all leather edges have minor scuffing. Page edges are medium brown, possibly from age. The side page edges form a "C" shape but this is not from the spine curving but rather the spine is rounded and bound as such with the leather when published. Inner end papers are white. Inside of book is tight, clean, clear, flat. Book is slightly over-opened at page 142 and the threads have made four small 1/8 inch closed rips on the inner side but the spine is not broken and the pages are not ripped or loose. At page 144 the binding is open on the bottom 5/8 inch from the bottom thread to the bottom edge of the page and the spine can be seen through the gap but again the spine is not broken and the page is not ripped or loose. The book is slightly over-opened at the title page meaning that the ffeps tend to fall towards the front cover away from the title page when let go by the fingers but here the inside edge of the pages is closed, there are no tiny rips from the threads, and the paper and spine are tight. I only mention it because of the value of this book. There is some age darkening inside the covers and on edges of pages and on almost all of the ffep and back end paper. Owner's round ink initial stamp, 3/4 inch diameter, on ffep. There is no writing inside the book, no pages are underlined, torn, no holes, no stains, book smells fine, no moisture or insect damage. It is in quite remarkable condition for its age. Preface by Robert Stanley Weir Montreal March 1898. Volume includes Book First (Of Persons), Book Second (Of Property, Of Ownership And Of Its Different Modifications), Book Third (Of The Acquisition And Exercise Of Rights Of Property), Book Fourth (Commercial Law), The Bills Of Exchange Act 1890, Index To The Civil Code,Index To The Bills Of Exchange Act.
