        Cho senshu [or] Cho senrui [trans.: One Thousand Butterflies]

      25 double-page stunning plates of colored woodcuts depicting butterflies. Two vols. in accordion-style (orihon). 8vo, orig. blue silk over boards (a little worn), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover. Kyoto: Yamada Unsodo, 1904. First edition of this beautifully illustrated work on butterflies; the handsome woodblock double-page plates, several of which are heightened in gold or silver, depict butterflies in a variety of styles. "Kamisaka Sekka was a genius; effortlessly, prodigiously, boundlessly imaginative; tirelessly inventive, spontaneous, and free. In One Thousand Butterflies (Cho senrui, 1903 [the book is commonly misdated; it was published in 1904]) he took a single subject and drew dozens of pictures, each in a different style. There was nothing academic about his approach. Each drawing was fresh and new; many were arresting and some mirrored new developments in European art… "Sekka loved design. He began to paint under Suzuki Zuigai when he was sixteen and studied textiles in his early twenties…He was doubly fortunate that Yamada Naosaburo, the most ambitious, original and enterprising publisher of the early twentieth century, recognized Sekka's genius and gave him the freedom and support he needed to bring into the world his protean vision of art fused with life."-Keyes, Ehon. The Artist and the Book in Japan (NYPL), p. 240. ? Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, p. 976-"A colour-printed book of elaborate decor based on the forms of butterflies. All the designs are 'patterned,' but some conform to the actual shape and markings of believable butterflies, though there is certainly no intention to be entomologically accurate; but in some, the artist simply used the insects as a theme for variations, distorting and manipulating the butterfly shape until it is barely recognizable, often achieving the kind of art nouveau that we associate with some Secession jewellery…Sekka is especially inventive when he allows swarms of butterflies to float over the page, achieving colourful geometric diagrams, or, in one, amorphous silver shapes outlined in brown, green and yellow, as evocative and irrational as abstracts by Arp.".

      Ilin Skt. Peterburg 1904 - Complete set of twelve postcards (14.3 x 9.1 cm) printed in colours after Bakst, most heightened with gilt, [4]pp. list of postcards in Russian and French, cards 1, 6, 11 and 12 lighter, the others more brown, as usual. Bakst's masterpiece, according to fellow artist and art historian Alexandre Benois. During the first half of his career, Bakst (1866-1924) mostly painted landscapes, scenes and portraits. From the moment in 1899 however when he co-founded, with Serge Diaghilev, the art group Mir Isskustva [The World of Art], he progressively turned towards performing arts. He fully committed himself to his famous costume and stage designs from 1908-9 onwards, when Diaghilev created the Ballets Russes. The present work is a rare example of Bakst's early theatrical designs (1903), for the short ballet Feya kukol by Joseph Bayer, pre-dating his work for the Ballets Russes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photographie originale de classe de Jean Gabin (1918) / Janson de Sailly

      - GABIN Jean (1904-1976). Acteur français. Photographie originale de classe, sépia, 29 x 22 cm (avec les bords), contrecollée sur carton, (1918/1919), bords un peu fragilisés. Il s’agit de la photo de classe de Jean Gabin (premier garçon en haut à gauche) âgé de 14 ans, au lycée Janson-de-Sailly à Paris (16E arrt). Alors qu’il vient de perdre sa mère, son père décide de l’inscrire dans ce lycée après qu’il ait reçu une bourse d’étude. Jean Gabin n’y restera que deux mois, s’acclimatant assez mal au quartier et à ses camarades. Il confiera lui-même : « Je n’étais pas le genre de la maison, il paraît que j’étais trop bagarreur ! ». Il enchaînera par la suite les petits boulots (agent EDF, aide-cimentier, magasinier ) au grand désespoir de son père qui dira de son fils à cette époque : « C’est pas un poil qu’il a dans la main, c’est une perruque. Il ne fera jamais rien dans la vie ». (Jean-Jacques Jelot-Blanc, Jean Gabin Inconnu, éditions Flammarion).
