        Stories from The Arabian Nights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1907. With Drawings by Edmund Dulac. Quarto. Original full vellum, titles and decorations to spine and front board in gilt with blue highlights, dark green endpapers, yellow silk ties, top edge gilt, others untrimmed.

A beautiful copy. Signed limited edition, number 27 of 350 copies numbered and signed by the artist. It was this book that first announced Dulac's status as a popular artist, confirming him as "a direct challenger in the illustrated gift book market to the work of Arthur Rackham. Susan Lambert noted that, compared to Rackham, Dulac 'made greater use of the breakthrough in four-colour printing, conceiving and modelling his pictures in colour rather than adding colours to a linear design'" (ODNB).

Nr. 76 von 300 numerierten Exemplaren auf vélin d'Annam (von insgesamt 320 nur für Subskribenten gedruckten Exemplaren). "Avis: La présente édition n'étant pas destinée au commerce, MM. les librairies sont prévenus que ce volume ne doit pas être mis en vente, ni annoncé, ni exposé dans des lieux publics." Das Buch gehört zu den wildesten erotischen Romanen der Weltliteratur. Angeblich aus einer Sektlaune innerhalb von nur drei Tagen entstanden, wird er A. de Musset zugeschrieben. Versprochen hatte er ein Werk, das die höchste sinnliche Leidenschaft zum Ausdruck bringt, ohne ein obszönes Vokabular zu verwenden. Die anonymen erotischen Illustrationen finden sich in der deutschen Übersetzung wiedergegeben, die 2008 bei Melchior in Wolfenbüttel erschienen ist. Die erste Illustration, das Frontispiz, zeigt am rechten unteren Rand klein das Porträt Mussets. Seltener französischer Privatdruck, von dem für uns lediglich 2 Exemplare in britischen Bibliotheken nachweisbar sind.

        ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. With a Proem by Austin Dobson

      London: William Heinemann, [1907]. DE LUXE LARGE-PAPER ISSUE LIMITED to 1130 hand-numbered copies of the first edition with Rackham's illustrations. With 13 fine colour plates tipped to stiff brown stock with captioned tissue guards, illustrated end-leaves and 14 black and white illustrations throughout the text, all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, in a very fine signed binding from the Chelsea Bindery of full red morocco. The upper cover gilt lettered and pictorially stamped using images from the original cloth covers, the spine with tall raised bands gilt stippled, creating gilt framed compartments, three of which are lettered in gilt, additional gilt lettering at the tail, gilt ruled board edges, wide turn-ins elaborately decorated in gilt with a floral vine motif, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. xi, 161, [1] pp. A very fine and beautiful copy of this wonderful limited edition, without flaw. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, LARGE PAPER LIMITED DE LUXE PRINTING OF THIS SIGNIFICANT WORK, IN A VERY FINE BINDING. This edition, was the first with Arthur Rackham's illustrations, and due to his being out of the country is the only De Luxe Limited Edition of one of his works to not be signed. With the publishing of this book a great controversy ensued, as critics protested the "presumptuous" replacement of John Tenniel's illustrations, but this only spurred sales of the book. The publisher sold 14,322 copies of the general trade issue of ‘Alice’ at 6 shillings each within the first 6 months of its issue, resulting in Arthur Rackham’s all-time most successful book debut. While reviewers scorned Rackham’s artistic audacity, the public supported his fresh interpretation. One uncharacteristically favorable review by The Daily Telegraph remarked, “The ‘Alice’...is not the heroine of Sir John Tenniel’s imagination; she is older and more sophisticated; but at the same time she has a tender, flickering light of imagination in her eyes, which lifts her out of the domain of the merely pretty and childish...Mr. Rackham’s inexhaustible imagination, working over and embroidering the ground-work of Tenniel’s types, has added a really wonderful wealth of uncanny, dreamlike mystery to the story...and extraordinary feeling into the drawing of the hands.” - Hamilton Rackham’s ‘Alice’ is sure to delight readers today with its fanciful creatures, its charming depiction of the heroine Alice, and its consistent good humor. And be sure to look for the artist’s self-caricature in his rendition of the Mad Hatter in “The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.”

        Les uniformes du Premier [1er] Empire. Collection Cartes Postales Artistiques Documentaires publiées sous la direction de M. le Lieutenant / du Capitaine E.-L. Bucquoy. [COLLECTION OF Ca. 1,800 ORIGINAL HAND-COLOURED CARDS].

      Nancy, Paris, Strasbourg, G. Francq, F. Gedovius, Treuttel et Wurtz, 1907-52. - Collection of ca. 1,793 (of 1,830) unique original hand-coloured cards in 220 series (of 226). The cards, printed in collotype, were professionally hand-coloured according to the original artworks before being issued. Collotype is one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms. The entire collection is meticulously arranged according to subject in 8 ring albums, each leaf protected with a tissue guard. A most fantastic set in absolutely superb condition. ~ Original hand-coloured edition. Practically complete. [ADDED:] AN ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR BY BUCQUOY, signed by himself, dated 1922. Measuring 29 x 21 cm, on thick handmade paper, preserved in superb condition. This attractive original was later reproduced as card 134/4: "Le Colonel Brincard". [ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 100 original explanatory leaflets, booklets, and books by Bucquoy, some of which are full-length and illustrated, all part of the present work. These materials, published between 1912 and 1953, were especially issued to accompany the cards and to provide extensive scholarly information on the study of uniforms. [ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 150 original printed envelopes including the first envelope, number 1. Each envelope acts as a title-page to the corresponding series of cards. It is titled, captioned, dated, priced, numbered according to series, and bears the names of the artists who worked on this particular series. ~ Eugene Louis Bucquoy (1879-1958) is considered the founding father of French uniform research. His "Bréviaire du Collectionneur d'uniformes renseignements -Conseils -Souvenirs" (1953) became the standard work on research and collection. Bucquoy was an officer of the Gendarmerie Nationale. In 1920 he founded the Société d'Étude des Uniformes de France of which he consequently became president. For his "Les uniformes du 1er Empire", by far the largest and most complete work ever compiled exclusively on the French army during the 1st Empire, he invited the foremost military artists at the time. Benigni, Huen, Rousselot, Knötel, Boisselier, Hilpert, JOB, Rouffet, Toussaint, Detaille, are among the best known. He continued to work on the project until his death. [PROVENANCE:] The present collection comes from the bequest of the late Dr. Frans Gerard de Wilde (1903-1999). A pharmacist by profession, a Captain in the Dutch Artillery, a recipient of the Bronze Cross for bravery in battle, he was the supreme expert on Dutch military uniforms, a distinguished collector, and a noted artist. In his youth he was befriended with Hoynck van Papendrecht, the great Dutch painter of military scenes and uniforms. He later became acquainted with the major experts on military uniforms in Europe, in particular with Commandant Bucquoy, with whom he corresponded regularly. He was a major force behind the initiation of the Legermuseum in Delft, and a member of its board until his death. In 1992, when he decide to part from his extensive collection, a major auction sale was organized, attracting collectors from all over the world and considerable media attention. Though the main reason for his decision to sell his collection was his planned move to a smaller residence, it is remarkable that he was not willing to part from his collection of the Bucquoy's cards and this was not offered on the sale. He kept this large 8-volume set with him until his death. Extremely rare. Such practically complete sets of this work are virtually extinct. Not in OCLC, KVK, COPAC, British Library, Library of Congress, nor in any institutional library worldwide. The National Library of France is the only library to hold a fragment of this work - having in their collection only 22 se

        Autograph musical quotation signed "Umberto Giordano."

      Marcella, first performed at the Teatro Lirico in Milan on November 9, 1907 to a libretto by L. Stecchetti, H. Cain, and J. Adenis, is "a story of love and renunciation across the class barrier... Giordano handled the late Romantic, emotionally vehement idiom of the giovane scuola with ease and fluency, being particularly skilful in weaving into his scores elements of local and historical colour... His stage sense is always sure, and his vocal writing unfailingly effective." Julien Budden in Grove Music Online.. 1 page of a bifolium (ca. 136 x 179 mm). Dated Milano, January 26, 1909. In black ink. Three measures from Scene V of the Second Episode of Giordano's opera Marcella. Notated in treble clef on one hand-drawn staff. In 4/4 time. With text "Vedi anch'io l'amor conosco" underlaid. Minor browning, heavier to blank final page; creased at folds, with three short tears, and remnants of adhesive, not affecting quotation.

        STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS, Retold by Laurence Housman

      London Hodder and Stoughton N.D. ca. 1907 - First Edition of the Large Paper Issue with the plates interspersed throughout the text. With the full complement of all 50 tipped-in color plates by Edmund Dulac. Large 4to, in the publisher&#146;s original rust-colored cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in beautiful Arabian style in gilt and dark blue on the spine and upper cover. With the original dustjacket upper cover tipped inside. xvi, 133 pp. A beautiful copy, unusually well preserved and fine, the plates pristine and perfect, the text fresh, the cloth bright, a bit of breakage at the join of the free-fly and pastedown. BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED BY EDMUND DULAC. Here we find a collection of stories from the ARABIAN NIGHTS superbly illustrated by Edmund Dulac. Selected from the original Persian fairy tales are: Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Sinbad the Sailor, Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp, and many others colorfully rendered on tipped-in plates. Dulac's illustrations conjure the mysterious atmosphere of the oriental text and transport the reader to a lyrical world of grace and beauty. Dulac&#146;s affinity for oriental design becomes apparent in the exquisite, almost jewel-like images; there is the profound influence of oriental art and especially Persian miniatures in this group of exotic paintings. Intricate colors and patterns are juxtaposed to create lyrical scenes as in, Supposing Me Asleep and Aladdin in the Cave. Stark simplicity is felt in the interstices between graceful lines and brilliant colors as in The Lady Bedr-el-Budur and Princess Badoura. The artist achieved intense effects in shading and atmosphere in his nocturne scenes such as The Lady Advanced to Meet Him. As we turn the pages, we feel drawn into a mysterious world of exotic moods and mysterious encounters. "The Arabian Nights gave Dulac an opportunity to indulge in his nocturnes; the the softness of the gleam of moonlight on stone, or on shadowy figures, and his use of ultramarine, indigo and Prussian blue, mingled with purples and violets, brought to the illustrations the calm and mystery of Eastern nights."-Colin White STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS is especially important in understanding Dulac&#146;s creative growth as it is believed that here, for the first time, he imposed an inner order and self-discipline. The success of the work was astonishing for its time and overshadowed other publication events for some time thereafter. "Leicester Galleries displayed the Dulac watercolors for THE ARABIAN NIGHTS in the autumn of 1907, at the same time the book was (originally) released. With unanimous praise the book was received by the critics and every picture sold even before the exhibition was opened to the general public. In light of this overwhelming success, Leicester Galleries promptly signed a contract with Dulac for one book a year, the subject to be chosen jointly between them and in consultation with Hodder & Stoughton."-Susan Meyer. Dulac treated each picture with a seriousness that brought him great praise, showing that he, like any fine easel painter could accomplish great art, even for use in the book arts. The book sealed his reputation and set him permanently on the long course of success he would enjoy throughout his career. This lovely edition of STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS, liltingly illustrated by Dulac, will be a cherished addition to any library. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
