        HEURES, LES (THE HOURS) (1909)

      France 1909 - Vintage original 42 x 57" (108 x 146 cm.) poster, France. Alice Tissot, Renee Carl, Christiane Mandelys, Maurice Vinot, dir: Louis Feuillade; Societe des Etablissments L. Gaumont. Beautiful poster from the French Art Nouveau period. So rare is this style art in film posters as this was the infancy of the motion picture. This was an episodic film, with sequences representing different times of the day. Morning, noon and eve art the three tableaus represented on this poster. Feuillade was perhaps the most prolific film director of all time, with more than 700 titles to his credit. In 1907 he was appointed artistic director of Gaumont. He is definitely one of the fathers of the art and technique of motion pictures. One of the pioneers, famous for his great crime serials JUDEX and LES VAMPIRES. On linen, there is some very minor staining at extreme top edge, NEAR FINE.

Erste Einzelausgabe. - "In diesem Bericht, den Minkowski in Köln nur wenige Monate vor seinem Tode vorlegte, führte er die Vorstellung ein, die die Erweiterung der Relativitätstheorie Einsteins von ihrer speziellen Form auf ihre allgemeine ermöglichte. Der fachliche Ausdruck für Minkowskis Hypothese ist: das vierdimensionale Raum-Zeit-Kontinuum [...]. Minkowskis Raum-Zeit-Hypothese bedeutete soviel wie eine Neuaufstellung von Einsteins Grundprinzip, doch in einer Form, die es wesentlich plausibler machte und außerdem wichtige neue Entwicklungen einleitete. Bis dahin dachte man sich das Naturgeschehen in einem dreidimensionalen Raum stattfindend und gleichförmig in der Zeit ablaufend. Minkowski behauptete, daß die Trennung von Raum und Zeit falsch sei; daß Zeit selbst eine Dimension sei, vergleichbar mit Länge, Breite und Höhe, und daß deshalb die wahre Vorstellung von der Wirklichkeit in einem Raum-Zeit-Kontinuum mit diesen vier Dimensionen bestehe [...]" (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern S. 714f.). - Umschlag etw. gebräunt, stockfleckig u. an den Rändern bestoßen.

Unsigned but stamped Mishkin 1909, NY in the image.* Mary Garden (20 February 1874 - 3 January 1967), was a Scottish operatic soprano with a substantial career in France and America in the first third of the 20th century. Possessing a beautiful voice that had a wide vocal range and considerable amount of flexibility, Garden first arose to success in Paris, France during the first decade of the 20th century. She became the leading soprano at Paris' Opera-Comique; notably portraying roles in several world premieres, including Melisande in Claude Debussy's Pelleas et Melisande (1902). She worked closely with Jules Massenet, in whose operas she excelled. Massenet notably wrote the title role in his opera Cherubin (1905) for her. In later years, she came to the United Sates and appeared at opera in several cities, joining the Chicago Opera Association in 1921. After retiring from the opera stage in 1934, she gave lectures and recitals mostly on the life and works of her friend, Claude Debussy with whom she made recordings in 1904. *Similiar to the photograph of Garden in the Massanet role reproduced in

      London: Constable & Co, 1909. London: Constable & Co, 1909. First edition. One of approximately thirty copies of the deluxe limited edition that were reserved for presenation. This one signed and dated November 23, 1909. Also included is a letter from Rackham on stationary with his address in green font: "16, Chalcot Gardens, South Hampstead. N.W." "26 Aug. &#39;09 | Dear Sir, A few years ago you bought a drawing of mine (of an old woman with horses behind - ) that had been reproduced in black & white as an illustration to Grimm&#39;s Fairy Tales. I am now bringing out another edition with the illustrations better reproduced, & in colours and am writing to ask whether you will be so kind as to lend the original drawing, so that fresh reproductions can be made. The publishers (Messrs. Constable & Co.) will be glad to send you a copy of the edition de luxe of the book when it comes out in the autumn, & I need hardly say that every care will be taken of the drawing which will be insured for whatever value you place on it. If you will be so very kind as to lend it to us, I will see that it is returned as soon as the new reproduction has been made which will probably take about 3 weeks. [unintelligible closing] Arthur Rackham." On a separate piece of stationary is: "with Mr. Arthur Rackham&#39;s Compliments & thanks," also in Rackham&#39;s hand. An official "Certificate of Posting" is tipped onto a blank side of the stationary. Unfortunately, the original artwork that formed the basis of the request is not included with the book. Nonetheless, Rackham&#39;s ink is plentiful and the association is interesting. The vellum covers are generally soiled and it is lacking the silk ties. Internally, the book is in excellent condition and complete with all 40 color illustrations tipped in.
