Jeder Band mit dem Druckvermerk "Von dieser Ausgabe wurden 100 Exemplare hergestellt. Jedes Exemplar ist handschriftlich numeriert und von Arthur Rackham handsigniert. Dieses Exemplar ist Nr. 25" - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        Reminiscences of Yacht Racing and Some Racing Yachts.

      Glasgow, John Smith & Son (Glasgow) Limited; Aberdeen, The University,, 1910. Original white cloth, titles gilt to the spine, yacht club burgees to the front board in red, blue and gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Photogravure frontispiece with tissue guard and 4 similar plates, 4 plates of line-drawings. Errata slip tipped in before p. ix. Spine toned and ends lightly bumped, top edge slightly tarnished, irregular browning to endleaves. An excellent copy. First and only edition of one of the most desirable of the early twentieth-century yachting books. Finlay was Regius Professor of Medicine at Aberdeen for over 21 years and a keen yachtsman from his youth. "When the excitements and striving of racing gave place to the more sober, but still pre-eminently satisfying and health-giving pleasures of cruising, he sailed his yacht among the Western Isles, and wrote eloquently of the beauties of Skye, of the hills of Mull and Morven, and of the cliffs of Rum". Here he offers "anecdotal racing memoirs, 1850-1871, and 1891-1906, with observations on the yawl rig, Corinthian racing, single- and double-handed matches, and racing reports, together with the details of the races in which the author sailed" (Toy). Scarce, with some ten copies in institutional libraries worldwide, and seldom encountered in this condition in commerce.

        CUALA INDUSTRIES, LTD., CHURCHTOWN, DUNDRUM CO. DUBLIN, IRELAND

      [Churchtown, Dundrum] : [Cuala Press] N.D. - No Date [ca 1910? ]. Presume 1st edition. Original illustrated single fold pamphlet, 16mo, [4] pages. 18 cm. Describes the location and hours of the workrooms and lists articles for sale. One page lists the work of Cuala Industries, chiefly Embroidery by Lily Yeats, while another page describes the work of the Cuala Press: "HAND PRESS - - Elizabeth C. Yeats. We print and publish books by Irish Authors, Editor of the Press, W. B. YEATS. Also Hand-Colored prints from Drawings by JACK B. YEATS. Bookplates, and Illuminated Poems" (pages [2-3]) . The Cuala Press was an "Irish private press set up in 1908 by Elizabeth Yeats with support from her brother William Butler Yeats that played an important role in the Celtic Revival of the early 20th century . In 1902, Elizabeth Yeats and her sister Lily joined their friend Evelyn Gleeson in the establishment of a craft studio near Dublin which they named Dun Emer. Dun Emer became a focus of the burgeoning Irish Arts and Crafts Movement, specializing in printing, embroidery, and rug and tapestry-making. Elizabeth Yeats ran the printing operation, and Lily managed the needlework department. In 1904, the operation was reorganized into two parts, the Dun Emer Guild run by Gleeson and Dun Emer Industries under the direction of the Yeats sisters, and in 1908 the groups separated completely. Gleeson retained the Dun Emer name, and the Yeats sisters established Cuala Industries at nearby Churchtown, which ran the Cuala Press and an embroidery workshop. It was intended that the new press would produce work by writers associated with the Irish Literary Revival. They ended up publishing over 70 titles in total, including 48 by William Butler Yeats. The press closed in 1946. The Cuala was unusual in that it was the only Arts and Crafts press to be run and staffed by women and the only one that published new work rather than established classics. In addition to Yeats, Cuala published works by Ezra Pound, Jack B. Yeats, Robin Flower, Elizabeth Bowen, Oliver St John Gogarty, Lady Gregory, Douglas Hyde, Lionel Johnson, Patrick Kavanagh, Louis MacNeice, John Masefield, Frank O'Connor, John Millington Synge, John Butler Yeats, Rabindranath Tagore and others.

      0 - Vor der Uraufführung von 'Cristinas Heimreise' an (Arthur) Kahane (am Deutschen Theater in Berlin). ". Ihr Wort (auch wenn Frl Heims die Nantilde spielen wird, müsste sie daneben die Cristine behalten) war vielleicht nur beiläufig gesagt und beschwert mich vielleicht über Gebür. Dies, was Sie da als möglich ins Auge fassen, ergäbe ja die schwersten Collisionen, zunächst in Bezug auf die Proben, gleich dann aber in Bezug auf das Besetzen der beiden Stücke. Diese wechselseitige Rücksichtnahme müsse ja im Fall eines Erfolgs beider Stücke dieselbe Schädigung beider herbeiführen . Und nun der Hauptpunkt: meine ganze Unruhe verwandelt sich Ruhe . sobald Ihr mir, Freunde, endlich sagt für wann der Anfang fortlaufender Proben und für wann die Premiere in Aussicht genommen ist . aber da Holländer mir depeschirt, dass nach der Arrangirprobe zur 'Christine' noch ein ganzes Stück von Eulenberg gemacht wird - so frage ich mich - wann denn nun Proben (und unter 14 Tagen fortlaufender Proben geht es doch nicht) definitiv anfangen sollen? . Halten Sie nur bitte, sich und Max Reinhardt vor Augen, daß ein Hinausrücken der Premiere über den 4. oder 6. Februar uns die Ausnützung des Erfolges in der Provinz so gut wie unterbinden würde .". 'Cristinas Heimreise' wurde am 11.2.1910 am Deutschen Theater in Berlin von Max Reinhardt - mit Else Heims (1878-1958 - die er im selben Jahr ehelichen sollte) in der Titelrolle - uraufgeführt.

        151 radiographies originales rassemblées dans trois albums

      - 151 épreuves France, c. 1910, , 151 épreuves gélatino-argentiques originales [13 X 18 cm] montées sous passe-partout dans deux albums in-folio et un album oblong in-folio, demi chagrin aubergine, quelques restaurations récentes, Ensemble rarissime de 142 clichés remarquables de grande qualité. Les trois albums présentés ici constituent un exemple unique et exceptionnel de radiographies numérotées réalisées par l'un des grands noms de la radiologie française pendant la Première Guerre mondiale. Ils sont constitués de 68 radiographies du pied, 21 radiographies de la colonne vertébrale et de l'abdomen dont 8 signées à l'encre Ch. Infroit, et 2 sont datées au dos au crayon (6 avril 1910 et 20 juin 1911) et 62 radiographies d'articulations. Charles Infroit (1874-1920) fut attaché au Laboratoire central de radiologie de la Salpêtrière, en 1898. Londe, qui en était le directeur, lui en laissa bientôt la direction, en 1904. Depuis ce moment, par le fait de l'action constante des rayons X, dont nous ne connaissions pas, à l'époque, la nocivité, sa vie ne fut qu'un long martyre. Il subira vingt-deux opérations. Les dernières ont abouti à l'amputation du bras droit et du poignet gauche. L'ensemble des radiographies présentes dans ces albums ont été réalisées autour de 1910 et constituent un précieux témoignage du travail de grande qualité (autant lors de la prise de vue que lors du développement) de l'un des grands martyrs de la Science. Bel état. Canguilhem, Le merveilleux scientifique, Gallimard, 2004, p. 97. Brought to Light : Photography and the Invisible 1840-1900, New Haven, Yale University Press, 2008, n°123.

        Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West. A Lesson in the History of Pioneer Days. Games of the Real Red Men Camel Races

      Riverside Print Co, Milwaukee 1910 - Chromolithographic poster, 55 x 20 inches. Old folds and creases. Two small chips in the edges, one of them touching the edge of the border. Very good.Framed and matted. Not examined out of frame. An attractive, colorful, and action-filled poster for one of the many "Wild West" shows that were formed in the wake of Buffalo Bill Cody's success. The Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show was formed around 1910 and produced shows filled with spectacle, as evidenced by this poster. The bottom half of the poster is dominated by a Catlinesque image of "The Real Indian War Dance," as braves in headdresses and breastplates dance around a camp fire. A full moon illuminates the night sky, and a number of teepees are visible in the background. A large illustration in the upper half shows a number of Indians on horseback playing "equestrian foot ball," while others show fancily dressed Anglo women on horseback, as well as a camel race with riders dressed in quasi-Bedouin garb. An attractive poster for a little-remembered Wild West show and a fine example of the "West (and Near East) of the Imagination."

        [Pour la Coupe, 1904 / La Turcat-Méry classée dans l'eliminataire et la de Dietrich, licence Turcat-Mery]

      Paris: [Mabileau & Co.], 1910. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Several creases. Small loss in image. Page toned. Proof copy before titles, colouring partially completed These two cars are identical to the 12.8 litre 4 cylinder De Dietrichs. Turcat-Mery seems to be a name plate associated with passenger autos, yet raced under the name of De Dietrichs in most cases. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.

Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit Marmorpapierbezügen und goldgeprägten Rückentiteln, kaschiert mit transparenter selbstklebender Buchbinderfolie. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. 1910 wurde die Zeitschrift \"Logos - Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie der Kultur\" gegründet. Georg Simmel war Mitherausgeber. Heinrich Rickert schrieb im ersten Heft den programmatischen Aufsatz \'Vom Begriff der Philosophie\'. Kulturphilosophie war ein aus der Lebensphilosophie und Teilen des Neukantianismus sich herleitender Gegenentwurf zu wissenschaftsorientierten Versuchen, die Krise der Philosophie zu überwinden, wie sie bei Edmund Husserls Phänomenologie, in der Marburger Schule des Neukantianismus oder im Logischen Empirismus des Wiener Kreises zu finden sind. Kulturphilosophie wurde nicht als philosophisches Teilgebiet (nicht als „Bindestrich-Philosophie“) verstanden. Vielmehr sah man in ihr einen neuen Weg, auf die durch Wissenschaft, Industrialisierung und Verstädterung veränderten Strukturen der Gesellschaft philosophisch zu antworten. Die vorliegende Zeitschrift wurde ab 1933 in neuer Folge von der \"Zeitschrift für deutsche Kulturphilosophie\" fortgeführt. - Band 15 leicht abweichend in Orig.-Leinen gebunden. Neuere Bände mit marmorierten Spiegeln und gesprenkelten Schnitten. - Ehemalige Bibliotheksexemplare; komplett eingeschlagen in selbstklebende transparente Buchbinderfolie. Mit Bibliothekssignatur auf dem Rücken und Stempeln auf Titelblatt und Vorsatz. Schutzfolien und Einbände teils leicht berieben und an den Kanten etwas bestoßen. Schnitte angestaubt und leicht gebräunt. Einige kleinere Anstreichungen mit Buntstift sowie saubere Notizen mit Bleistift an verschiedenen Stellen im Werk.

        Encyclopaedia Britannica Complete New Form 11th Edition - 32 Volumes in 16 [Encyclopedia]

      Cambridge University Press, 1910. Later Edition. Large Hardcover. Near Fine/No Jacket. Eleventh edition. Minor wear to corners. 1910 Large Hardcover. Complete set, 32 volumes in 16. The last edition of the Britannica to be written entirely by experts - subsequent editions were significantly simplified. "The Encyclopædia Britannica (English: British Encyclopædia) is a general English-language encyclopaedia published by Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., a privately held company. Articles are aimed at educated adults, and written by about 100 full-time editors and more than 4,000 expert contributors. It is regarded as the most scholarly of encyclopaedias. The Britannica is the oldest English-language encyclopædia still in print. It was first published between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh, Scotland, and grew in popularity and size, its third edition (1797) and supplement (1801) reaching 20 volumes together. Its rising stature helped recruit eminent contributors, and the 9th edition (1875–1889) and the 11th edition (1911) are landmark encyclopaedias for scholarship and literary style. Beginning with the 11th edition, the Britannica shortened and simplified articles to broaden its North American market. In 1933, the Britannica became the first encyclopaedia to adopt "continuous revision", in which the encyclopaedia is continually reprinted and every article updated on a schedule."

The deluxe edition of this classic work is preferred over the regular edition for a number of reasons. The first and most obvious is the presence of a second volume including the 33 specimens of actual flies, tied by Hardy Brothers and/or C. Farlow's according to the author's very specific instructions, with careful attention paid to the colour and form of each fly. The second reason is the fact that the text is printed on fine quality Whatman laid paper that is also considerably larger than the paper used in the regular edition. Thirdly the plates, particularly those on india paper, are of a much higher quality that those in the regular edition. This work was aimed quite specifically at those who fished the chalk streams of southern England, but its central message, that the artificial flies should match their living counterparts as closely as possible, was understood to be applicable around the world. This dictum, together with the author's skills in conveying the joys and tribulations of fishing have combined to produce a work that is much in demand today. Litchfield 73.

        Original glass plate photograph, Honovi – Walpi Snake Priest, prepared by Curtis for the printing of The North American Indian

      Edward Curtis 1910 - This is a splendid original glass plate made for Curtis’s The North American Indian, the greatest photographic work on Native Americans. This portrait, titled Honovi - Walpi Snake Priest, with Totokya Day Painting, was published as a photogravure in The North American Indian, volume 12, plate 408, c.1910 Approx. 14 x 17 inches. Accompanied by a custom wall-mount light box. Excellent condition. A stunning display piece. “Take a good look. We’re not going to see this kind of thing much longer. It already belongs to the past.” – George Bird Grinnell to Edward Curtis, 1900 Edward Curtis was one of the most important American artists of the nineteenth century and the most celebrated photographer of North American Indians. Over the course of thirty-five years, Curtis took tens of thousands of photographs of Indians from more than eighty tribes. “Never before have we seen the Indians of North America so close to the origins of their humanity, their sense of themselves in the world, their innate dignity and self-possession” (N. Scott Momaday). Curtis’s photographs are “an absolutely unmatched masterpiece of visual anthropology, and one of the most thorough, extensive and profound photograph works of all time” (A. D. Coleman). Curtis printed 2200 of his images as photogravures in his magisterial The North American Indian , which was hailed as “the most gigantic undertaking in the making of books since the King James Bible” (New York Herald). These photogravures were printed from large-format photographic glass plates, the vast majority of which were subsequently destroyed. Curtis devoted the twelfth volume of The North American Indian to the Hopi. He wrote of this photograph of Honovi, “This plate depicts the accoutrement of a Snake dancer on the day of the Antelope dance (see Volume XII, pages 146-149). The right hand grasps a pair of eagle-feathers – the ‘snake whip’ – and the left a bag of ceremonial meal. Honovi was one of the author’s principal informants.” Curtis’s lifelong project was inspired by his reflection that “The passing of every old man or woman means the passage of some tradition, some knowledge of sacred rite possessed by no other; consequently, the information that is to be gathered, for the benefit of future generations, respecting the modes of life of one of the greatest races of mankind, must be collected at once or the opportunity will be lost for all time.” The present stunning example is one of the very few glass plate photographs that have survived. The image contains a wealth of detail that was lost in the photogravure process, and when shown in the accompanying lightbox, it is a dazzling photographic masterpiece. This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire one of the greatest monuments of photography in one of its rarest and most important forms.

        THE HAUNTED ISLAND: A PIRATE ROMANCE.

      London: Elkin Mathews, 1910 - Small octavo, pp. [1-9] 10 [11] 12-194 [195-196: ads] [note: first leaf is a blank], one illustration by N. W. Physick, title page printed in red and black, original maroon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition. The author's first novel. Visiak's "best work shadows SF, horror and fantasy modes, employing speculative metaphysics in a manner similar to the fiction of his friend David Lindsay. In stories of this sort, the consensual word is argued -- sometimes in passages of considerable length - - as being an expression of the dream world, or world of archetypes. Such texts do not easily fit into template definitions of the various genres of the fantastic . THE HAUNTED ISLAND is clearly fantastic, and engagingly deploys ghosts and magic in a tale of pirates set on a mysterious island in the 17th century." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 987. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 175. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 219 (describing a similar copy). Bleiler (1978), p. 200. Reginald 14687. See Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 444 for a concise summary of Visiak's contributions to the horror genre. Faint glass ring on front cover, endpapers quite foxed, but a solid very good copy with bright cover stamping. A very scarce book. (#148230) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Photograph Album including Archibald Hoxsey Flying an Airplane at the 2nd Los Angeles Air Meet in December of 1910

      Seattle and Los Angeles, 1910. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album is approximately 7" x 11" and contains over 100 photographs taken between 1905 and 1911. The photographs range in size from 1" x 1.25" to 6" x 8". The highlight of the album is a series of six photographs taken at the 2nd Los Angeles Air Meet in Dominguez Field in December of 1910. Three of the photos show aircraft and aviators on the ground and three show a Wright Flyer in the air. Two of the Wright Flyer photographs are annotated "Hoxey" (sic) in the lower margin. Archibald Hoxsey was a famous early pilot employed by the Wright brothers who taught him to fly after meeting him at the first Los Angeles Air Races the previous January. Hoxsey is most famous for having taken Teddy Roosevelt on his first flight at Kinloch Field in St. Louis two months earlier. He set a world altitude record of 11,474 feet at the 2nd Los Angeles Air Meet on December 29th and died in crash at the field two days later. The other photos in the album are of friends and family including Cora's husband, Edwin A. Strout a prominent Seattle businessman, and her father, General (retired) Frank Taylor. The photos show the family enjoyiing an upper-middle-class lifestyle including children playing croquet, boating, adults playing tennis, the family's large home, debutantes holding pennants at the first hole of a golf club, General Taylor in uniform and mounted on a horse, General Taylor in civilian clothes carrying golf clubs, a man in beekeeping garb, a girl's tea party, a horse-drawn mail cart, children mounted on horses outside a public stable, adults in an automobile, two women relaxing on the yacht "Olympic," playing at the Santa Barbara beach in 1905, etc. The album also includes a large souvenir photocard of the 1910 Tournament of Roses Chariot Race, etc. The album shows some wear, heaviest at spine ends. The photos are mostly in nice shape; a few have dog-ears, corner wear, or small scuffs. Some have light wrinkles from the glue that was used to attach them to the album pages.

        THE AMERICAN WOODS. EXHIBITED BY ACTUAL SPECIMENSAND WITH COPIOUS EXPLANATORY TEXT

      Lowville, N.Y., 1910. Octavo portfolios. Text in original wrappers, samples in card mounts unbound as issued. Occasional natural cracking and warping to a few samples. Very good. Each text volume and accompanying samples within original brown cloth cover in matching original cloth slipcase, with metal catch and bosses to covers. Each contained in a brown cloth box, morocco label. This remarkable work was the lifetime achievement of Romeyn B. Hough, who devoted himself to the study of American trees, and who is best known for his HANDBOOK OF TREES OF THE NORTHERN STATES AND CANADA, long a standard reference work in American dendrology. In this much larger work Hough sought to describe the woods found in America, with a detailed description in an accompanying pamphlet, and with thin cross-sections of actual woods mounted and labeled on accompanying stiff cardboard mounts. Seventy-five to eighty of these actual wood samples thus accompany each part, or about four hundred separate samples in the present set of the first five volumes. This mass of samples provides a unique record of American wood types, arranged geographically. Generally each species is shown with wood cut on traverse section, radial section, and tangential section. The samples are so thin as to be easily translucent. The age of these specimens gives them tremendous importance from an ecological standpoint, as well as their great interest to students of American furniture and woodcrafts. The trees available to Hough at the time make such an endeavor impossible to contemplate today. The present set consists of the first five volumes. The first volume is the third edition (1910); the second volume is the second edition (1898); the third volume is the second edition (1900); the fourth volume is the first edition (1894); and the fifth volume is the first edition (1894). Hough issued his first portfolio in 1888 and his thirteenth in 1913. This was evidently all he intended to publish, since he lived for eleven years after the final portfolio appeared. In 1928, Hough's daughter issued a final supplementary volume. All of the portfolios issued by Hough were published by him in his hometown of Lowville, New York. Portfolios cost five dollars a piece, a very high price, reflecting the great difficulty in assembling them. Since subscribers came and went over the quarter century span of publication, and many only purchased the individual portfolios of interest to them, very few complete sets were assembled. It is sufficiently rare that TAXONOMIC LITERATURE only notes six of the parts. Parts I through IV cover New York and adjacent states, and Part V covers Florida. The remaining parts are not present here. Parts VI through X describe the Pacific Slope, Parts XI through XII cover the Atlantic states, and Part XIII covers southern Florida. The final part, XIV, continued with the trees of Florida. One of the greatest American works on trees and woods, a labor of love, here in a set of the first five volumes.

        Rubaiyat de Omar Khayyam

      Librairie d'Art H. Piazza et Cie, Paris 1910 - 1/400. Large quarto. Unpaginated. Uncut. Contemporary 3/4 burgundy morocco over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering to spine. Raised bands. Top edge gilt. Ribbon marker. Marbled endpapers. Original gold-stamped wrappers bound in. Decorative title page.Illustrated with twenty striking tissue-guarded mounted color plates, this limited edition of the "Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam" is a total feast for the eyes. Indeed, each page of verses or quatrains is printed on heavy paper surrounded by ornamental borders and is frequently interspersed with Edmond Dulac's evocative paintings. The artist used intense but subtle tones of color to create a rich tapestry of visual contrasts, page after page. Pale flesh is swathed in delicate patterned silks and set to pose on hillsides of velvet grass. Figures emerge from opalescent nights and drink thirstily from silver goblets. Dulac vividly captures the temptations of the senses as Omar himself succumbed to them. The "Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam" illustrations portray a humanity, poignant and complex, as perhaps nowhere else in Edmond Dulac's repertoire. One of 400 copies on Velin paper (of a total edition of 700) of which this is No. 623. Minor shelf wear. Moderate abbrasion along fore-edge of endpapers at rear. Slight age-toning along paper margin. Text and captions in French. Binding and interior in overall good+ to very good, plates in very good condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Lettre autographe signée - 1951 (à Roger Parry) / Au sujet de ses portraits photographiques

      - (1910-1986). Ecrivain, poète et auteur dramatique français. Lettre autographe signée, sans lieu ni date, (1951), à Roger Parry, 1 page in-4°. Rectangle dessiné en bas de page de la main de Genet. L’écrivain demande au photographe Roger Parry de faire des tirages de certaines photographies. Il lui demande aussi de mettre ces tirages sur le compte de son éditeur Gaston Gallimard. « Voulez-vous être brave : faites moi 5 photos du numéro 1 (en haut et à droite) et 5 photos du numéro 6 (en bas et à droite). J’aimerais que le format soit à peu près celui que je dessine ici. Ou légèrement plus grand si vous y tenez. J’aimerais bien encore que vous le mettiez au compte de Gaston (Gallimard). Si c’est impossible tant pis. Je vous paierai moi-même. Dites lui que c’est de la publicité ! J’espère bien prendre un verre avec vous un de ces jours. S’il vous plait expédiez moi les photos chez moi, le plus vite possible. Je voudrais en emporter à Rome jeudi. Ou laissez les à la NRF mais prévenez moi par pneu. Amicalement. Jean Genet. 16 rue Chevalier de la Barre. Paris 18e ». Jean Genet rajoute en haut de la page dans le coin gauche : « Si Gallimard refuse de payer, marquez-moi le prix dans le pneu ». Roger Parry (1905-1977) réalisa en 1951 plusieurs portraits de Jean Genet sur les quais de la Seine à Paris. En 1951 paraît chez Gallimard ses œuvres complètes.
