Interesting ALS About Travel Plans & His Automobile. 8vo., 1 1/2 pages on the elaborate letterhead of Hôtel Café Restaurant G. Donizot. Auxerre,(Yonne, Bourgogne) n.d. [c. 1907].Trans. In part. "My dear Griffin / Tomorrow, we're headed to Savoie en Dauphiné where I will stay for some time before going to Tropez in September. It would be helpful for me to plan this tour if I knew when you may need Poirel for the casting of the Darzens cars. / I hope your car motors wonderfully and shows you the joys of tourism while waiting for the 24 HP's vanderbiltian pleasures! As for us, we are making a 'un petit 33 des famille' with pannes & pannettes, but I am now convinced that I have a good machine under my feet. / Please, with my respect, send Mrs. Viele my wife's fondest memory and trust in my wholehearted friendship. / P. Signac A very good example with small loss at the left margin not affecting text, neatly closed tears reinforced at the folds. Orig. "Mon cher Griffin / Nous sommes en essais et mise au point avec Poirel Sans l'Avallonnais (petite surfe trop miniature). Demain nous embrayons pour Savoie et Dauphiné, où je séjournerai quelque temps pour arriver en Septembre à Tropez. / Il me serait bien utile pour l'organisation de cette tournée de savoir le moment où vous pourriez avoir besoin de Poirel pour le moulage des voitures Darzens. Si vous vouliez bien m'écrire un mot à ce sujet chez M. Terifier, notaire, II me St Nizier, Macon (S. et L.) vous me rendriez service. / J'espère que votre voiture roule à merveille et vous fait gouter les pures joies du tourisme, en attendant les délices vanderbiltiennes de la 24 HP.! Nous, nous faisons un petit 33 des famille avec pannes et pannettes, mais je suis maintenant convaincu d'avoir de la bonne mécanique sous les pieds. / Veuillez présenter à Madame Viele avec mes hommages, le meilleur souvenir de ma femme et croire à toute mon amitié. / P. Signac". Paul Signac [1863 - 1935]. French neo-impressionist painter who, working with Georges Seurat, helped develop the pointillist style. In 1884 he met Claude Monet & Georges Seurat. He was struck by the systematic working methods of Seurat & by his theory of colors & became Seurat's faithful supporter. Under his influence he abandoned the short brushstrokes of impressionism to experiment with scientifically juxtaposed small dots of pure color, intended to combine & blend not on the canvas but in the viewer's eye, the defining feature of pointillism. Many of Signac's paintings are of the French coast. He loved to paint the water. He left the capital each summer, to stay in the south of France in the village of Collioure or at St. Tropez.

        Hakluytus Pothumus or PURCHASE HIS PILGRIMES Contayning a History of the World in Sea Voyages and Land Travells

      James Maclehose and Sons 1905 to 1907, Glasgow - 8vo, Printed in a limited edition of 1,000. Purchase, whose date of birth is uncertain, but was probably around 1577, was born at Thaxted, in Essex, England. He was educated at Cambridge, and in 1604 was appointed to the Vicarage of Eastwood near Leigh on the Thames. It was from the "lusty seamen" of this coastal town that he began to gather his tales of exploration and nautical adventure, a vocation he was to pursue (at no little cost to himself, or his family) until the end of his life. He continued to garner material from all sources, including the papers of Hakluyt (who died in 1616). His first volume appeared in 1613, and subsequent volumes appeared until 1625, often being reprinted and reissued with new volumes. Purchase died in 1626. The text of this edition is an exact reprint of the 1625 edition, with the exception that a more comprehensive index has been supplied. It may be understood that all volumes in this set show wear and bumping, with light to heavy soiling to the boards. The latter volumes, in particular, are troubled by superficial exposure to moisture, as the boards are water spotted, and some pages are quite foxed. There is, however, no odor, or evidence other than cosmetic of a deleterious affect. All volumes are complete, and all maps are present. All volumes may safely be handled and read. A good set, which, if it were prettier, which fetch a much more substantial price. Complete 20 volume set uniformly bound in original blue cloth [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Golden Crisis [1907 futurism]

      Oasis Publishing Co., Columbus, OH 1907 - Columbus, OH: Oasis Publishing Co., 1907. First edition, signed and inscribed by Clark "yours for the millenium." on the ffep. 7" x 4.75", gilt pictorial dark blue cloth. Shelf wear, strongly along bottom edges, else VG+. Sturdy and bright. A look - in 1907 - by historical muralist Egbert Norman Clark at the transformation the human psyche was encountering during the first few years after the run of the nineteenth century. A familiar sounding passage echos from his introductory paragraph: ""The most advanced thinkers and students of sociology of the day all agree that the human race is now passing through a transitional period in its development, and that, as a social fabric, we are rapidly approaching a crisis." With chapter titles taken from astrology - numbered "ages" dominated each by a planet - and strong spiritual opinions by Clark throughout ("Humanity Is God!!!) - a fascinating, telling, uncategorizable futuristic book. Very rare in its first edition; this one is signed, and as such is probably not replaceable. Please feel free to ask questions or request additional scans.
