With Illustrations by Edmund J. Sullivan. London: Chapman and Hall, 1910. Large paper copy, limited to 150 sets, signed by the artist, this being no. 83. Two quarto volumes (11 x 7 1/8 in; 282 x 181 mm). xii, [2], 418; xi, [1, blank], 484 pp. Thirty-three black and white plates and 124 black and white text illustrations. Original quarter vellum over natural linen boards. Front cover and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine set in the original pale blue dust jackets, printed in red."Of the three great political upheavals which have altered the face of the world - the American, French and Russian Revolutions - only the French Revolution has stimulated literary masterpieces which, in turn, have made their impact, direct and indirect, upon millions of readers...They are Carlyle's book and ...Michelet's...Carlyle wrote his French Revolution as a secular 'tract for the times' and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism, and democracy...The book at once captured the English-speaking world, and has, outside France, moulded the popular conception of the French Revolution down to the present day" (PMM).Edmund Joseph Sullivan (1869-1933) was a British book illustrator who worked in a style which merged the British tradition of illustration from the 1860s with aspects of Art Nouveau. He was only 20 years old when he began contributing to various magazines including the Daily Chronicle, The Daily Graphic, The Pall Mall Gazette and Punch magazine.He soon graduated to the more prestigious role of book illustrator. Sullivan's style is comparable to that of Aubrey Beardsley, but is more romantic, without Beardley's acerbic attitude. Sullivan adapted his style to use the faux-Rococo techniques he had developed in order to combine them with bizarre images of strange fantastical figures, drawing on the genre of the grotesque. Sullivan also illustrated Carlyle's The French Revolution, using the same combination of Rococo and Grotesque to emphasize the violence erupting into the decorative world of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette's court.Cf. PMM 304.

Beginning in amateur theatricals in 1875, he graduated to professional status in 1880 making his London debut in 1881 and playing a wide variety of roles in many leading companies, including Irving's Lyceum. In 1891 he became actor manager of St. James's Theatre, King Street, in the heart of London's exclusive St. James's quarter, where he rapidly secured a reputation for quality and innovation. He staged the premiere of Wilde's 'Lady Windermere's Fan' (1892) and in the following year Pinero's 'The Second Mrs Tanqueray' which brought stardom to Mrs. Patrick Campbell. He was to remain manager for the rest of his life. Alexander developed a particular talent for drawing room comedy, staging many of the finest examples of the genre and employing leading artists (including Alma Tadema and others from the Royal Academy) to design and create the famous St. James's backdrops. In 1895 he achieved his greatest contribution to theatre when he produced the first performance of 'The Importance of being Earnest' with himself in the lead role of John Worthing, a part he was to make his own. The first night, February 14th 1895, was perhaps the most memorable in Victorian theatre, with all seats sold and the Prince of Wales as guest of honour. A tip-off had warned Alexander that the Marquis of Queensbury, father of Lord Alfred Douglas, was intending to sabotage the performance; fortunately the Marquis was deterred by a strong police presence and left the theatre in disgust throwing his bouquet of vegetables into the gutter. Alexander reprised his performance in his revival of the production (at the same theatre) in 1909. Its continuing success prompted him to commission Methuen, the play's original publisher, to produce this special edition to mark his twentieth year as actor manager of St. James's Theatre. Robert Ross, Wilde's original dedicatee, contributed an original preface, saying 'The Importance of Being Earnest does not require any introduction, other than can be obtained by seeing it played by Mr. George Alexander and his well-chosen company. Of the many successful roles which he has sustained so brilliantly during his twenty years of management, I may be pardoned for thinking that so far as comedy is concerned 'John Worthing' is the masterpiece..'. Ross concludes his appreciation with confirmation that Wilde's first holograph draft of the play, presented by Ross to the Trustees of the British Museum, has been accepted for inclusion in the National Collection of Manuscripts. Alexander was knighted for services to the theatre in 1911 and remained head of St. James's Theatre until his death in 1918. The theatre itself, a great favourite with London society, was later owned by Laurence Olivier and his wife Vivien Leigh, but changing attitudes led to its slow decline and it was eventually closed in 1957 to make way for commercial development. This edition of Wilde's final and most famous drama, one of the finest and most popular comedies in the language, is notable on several counts. It is signed and presented as a celebration of success by the actor who created the play's leading role, it features a unique preface by Ross, it is tangibly a most attractive and elegant volume, it is inherently very scarce in any condition, and much the more so in this state with the rare dustwrapper. IT IS, IN ESSENCE, A SIGNIFICANT MILESTONE IN THE HISTORY OF ENGLISH THEATRE. . Catalogs: theatre & cinema.

Inspired, like so many French writers of his generation, by Chateaubriand, Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was deeply drawn tothe romanticism of the early c. 19. Once vowing 'to be Chateaubriand or nothing,' Hugo became a pre-eminent Romanticist and Republican, finding himself exiled inGuernsey for many years on account of his political views. His name is one of the most instantly recognisable of French literary canon. Perhaps the best-known of Hugo's works are his first full-length novel, Notre-Dame de Paris (translated as the Hunchback of Notre Dame), and the universally-known Les Miserables. Here we have the lion's share of his most prominentwork, in the form of 19 volumes fromthe Estes and Lauriat International Limited Edition, printed on luxurious heavy paper and bearing engraved , tissue-protected plates and bicolour engravedfrontispieces.

        The American Woods, exhibited by actual specimens and with copious explanatory text

      Lowville, N.Y: by the author, 1910-1898-1900-1894. Volume I-V only (of 14), octavo. (9 x 6 inches). Illustrations. 387 samples of wood, each wafer-thin transverse, radial and tangential sections illustrating 129 species, window-mounted in 129 card mounts. (Occasional natural cracking and warping to a few samples). Text in original wrappers, samples in card mounts unbound as issued, 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 modern brown cloth box with morocco label. Mixed edition. A representative sample of a rare and remarkable work on the woods of America. Volumes I-IV cover all the trees of New York and adjacent states, vol.V is on the trees of Florida. A contemporary reviewer called it `one of the most marvelous and instructive books ever made ' (Art Education). 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 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 in accompanying stiff cardboard mounts. These provide 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. Parts I-IV cover New York and adjacent states, part V covers Florida, parts VI-X describe the Pacific Slope, parts XI-XII cover the Atlantic states, and part XIII southern Florida. Part XIV contained a continuation of the work on the trees of Florida with text by Marjorie Hough, using specimens and notes prepared by her father before his death in 1924. Hough explained the unique nature of the work thus: it is `illustrated by actual specimens, and being in this way an exhibition of nature itself it possesses a peculiar and great interest never found in a press-printed book. The specimens are....about 2 x 5 in. in size, and sufficiently thin to admit of examination in transmitted light...Looked at in reflected light they appear as in the board or log... These specimens are mounted in durable frame-like Bristol- board pages, with black waterproofed surfaces...and each bears printed in gilt-bronze the technical name of the species and its English, German, French and Spanish names. The pages are separable...and are accompanied with a full text...giving information as to the uses and physical properties of the woods, and distributions, habits of growth, botanical characters, habitats, medicinal properties, etc,., of the trees.. The woods used for the specimens are personally collected by the author… and are sectioned and prepared by a process of his own device'. Complete sets of this work are very rare. The volumes were priced at five dollars each, a high price reflecting the work involved in assembling them. Since subscribers came and went over the 25-year period of publication and many only bought the volume or volumes on the areas that interested them. The rarity of complete sets can be judged from the fact that Stafleu and Cowan record the work as being complete in 6 volumes. Cf. BM (NH) II,p.880 (pts.1-8 only); cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 II, p.341.

        Des méningites chroniques syphilitiques - la lésion des nerfs de la base du cerveau dans le tabes (exemplaire de Georges Guillain)

      Paris, G. Steinheil 1910 Grand in-8° relié, demi-chagrin vert, dos à cinq nerfs, titre gravé. Exemplaire en parfait état fleurs de coins. [Perfect copy as new, no foxing], 104 pp. et 16 planches hors-texte. Très rare thèse de doctorat de médecine de Clovis Vincent soutenue en 1910 devant Fulgence Raymond, accompagné de Chauffard, André Broca et Henri Claude. Clovis Vincent est le pionnier et l'inventeur de la neuro-chirurgie française avec Thierry de Martel - élève de Babinski Il se rend aux Etats Unis pour s'informer des méthodes du pape de la neuro chirurgie mondiale, le Professeur Harvey Cushing du Peter Bent Bigham Hospital de Boston. Dans la grande tradition chirurgicale française, il y montre son goût pour « la technique et les réalisations manuelles soignées » et devient bientôt un spécialiste unanimement reconnu de l'exérèse des tumeurs hypophysaires et autres méningiomes. Sa dextérité lui vaut l'admiration de Cushing qui, lors d'une visite à Paris, aurait déclaré au doyen de la Faculté de médecine « avoir vu opérer le meilleur neurochirurgien du monde ». Cette appréciation est partagée par la Fondation Rockefeller qui a permis à Claudius Vincent de créer en 1933 le Centre neurochirurgical de La Pitié-Salpêtrière où l'on étudie la physiologie des lobes frontaux du cerveau, puis de devenir le titulaire de la première chaire de neurochirurgie créée à la Faculté de médecine en 1939 ; André Breton et le groupe surréaliste, jamais en retard d'une guerre contre la psychiatrie et la neurologie - alors que Breton avait travaillé dans le service de Babinski - l'appelait le Clovis Trouille de la psychiatrie.

        La Maladie du sommeil. Rapport présenté au Congrès de berlin 1910. MANUSCRIT

      Un manuscrit format carré retenu par quatre écrous aux coins où Auguste Marie a calligraphié le titre sur la couverture. 112 feuillets manuscrits écrits à la plume dans une écriture minuscule et deux photographies originales contrecollées à l'intérieur. On trouve en effet la trace de cette communication en 1910 à Berlin, mais elle ne fait que 12 pages. Auguste Marie envisageait certainement d'écrire une monographie complète sur la question. Il avait à l'époque de très hautes responsabilités dans le système asilaire français. Il avait obtenu en 1892 l'autorisation du Département de la Seine d'ouvrir des colonies familiales, dirigeait, depuis 1905, tous les Asiles du département de la Seine hors les murs, c'est-à-dire, outre les colonies familiales, Bercksur- Mer dans le nord, Cambo-les-Bains et Perray-Vaucluse. Il avait été mandaté par le gouvernement français pour faire une vaste tournée au Proche-Orient et en Afrique du Nord pour inspecter les asiles des pays tropicaux et constater également l'existence de maladies mentales propres à certaines cultures. C'est ainsi qu'il s'intéressa à la maladie du sommeil qu'il eu l'occasion d'examiner au Soudan, et à la consommation de chanvre dans le pourtour méditerranéen. Auguste Marie a mené conjointement des études de droit et de médecine. Il commence sa carrière comme médecin-chef à Villejuif, où assisté de son adjoint, Paul Meunier, il rassemblera, quelques années avant Prinzhorn, une magnifique collection d'oeuvres de malades mentaux (aujourd'hui partiellement transférée à Sainte-Anne, l'autre partie ayant disparu lors du premier grand congrès international de psychiatrie présidé par Henri Ey en 1950 où elle avait été prêtée). Ses très grandes qualités de clinicien le firent désigner comme successeur par Valentin Magnan, au service des admissions de Sainte-Anne, où il restera jusqu' à sa retraite en 1930. Grand neuropsychiatre, il a eu des centres d'intérêts très divers. Il s'est intéressé à l'essor naissant de la psychanalyse, à l'art des malades mentaux sur lequel il donne de très nombreuses publications à partir de 1910, il introduit, en l'affinant, la malariathérapie de Wagner von Jauregg. Mais Auguste Marie reste surtout connu comme l'apôtre en France de l'assistance familiale aux malades mentaux. S'inspirant du modèle de Gheel et du boarding-out-system écossais ; Ce sera la création de Dun-sur-Aron, de Chezal-Benoit et d'Azay-le-Château.

        Erène ou l'été fleuri [COPY INSCRIBED TO HIMSELF!]

      C. Marque, Oloron-Sainte-Marie 1910 In-8° relié (23 x 17,5cm), percaline ivoire, 12 pp. non ch., signet. Il s'agit de l'édition originale (12 ans avant la publication de ces poésies en 1922 chez Emile-Paul frères), limitée à 20 exemplaires numérotés à la main, faite à compte d'auteur par Derème lui-même chez un imprimeur d'Oloron-Sainte-Marie, où sa mère possédait une maison dans laquelle il vint se ressourcer toute sa vie. La date de septembre 1910 est imprimée en page de faux-titre. Fondateur de l'Ecole Fantaisiste avec Francis Carco, le poète Tristan Derème signe de son nom d'artiste un bel envoi à. Philippe Huc -son véritable patronyme!): "à toi, Philippe Huc, qui a pensé ces pages avec ma tête et les as écrites avec ma main." Belle écriture, fine, à l'encre violette. C'est l'exemplaire n°20 (sur 20).Est joint une enveloppe datée de 1930 adressée à H. Henri Bouffard, auteur bordelais, dans laquelle sont conservées deux coupures de presse : une colonne constituée d'un extrait d'un texte d'Antoine Riquoir sur « La Maison de Tristan Derème » (publié en 1930) et une colonne de Tristan Derème sur la poésie, titrée « Le Vrai Trésor », publiée dans Le Figaro où il tenait une chronique hebdomadaire de 1927 à 1929. Plus intéressant encore et émouvant est un courrier manuscrit de 3 feuillets pliés en quatre, écrit à l'encre noire et signé par Derème, depuis Cazères-sur-Garonne, le 4 avril 1913 (période au cours de laquelle il était journaliste-chroniqueur au quotidien local Les Pyrénées et publie « La Flûte fleurie »). Difficile d'identifier le « cher ami » destinataire, probablement un autre poète (Francis Carco ? Paul-Jean Toulet ?) dont Derème se sent proche. Il écrit qu'il est en train de relire « L'Imitation [de Jésus-Christ] » en latin, estimant des traductions, « même les plus illustres » [Derème fait évidemment allusion à Pierre Corneille], « loin d'atteindre à la violence et à la magnifique grandeur de l'original ». Un paragraphe vante la beauté de la campagne de Haute-Garonne. La lettre finit sur une précieuse justification du poète sur le « dédain des rimes » que lui reproche son ami au sujet d'un texte paru dans la revue littéraire « L'île sonnante ». « J'ai voulu tenter une expérience », explique-t-il. Derème parle plutôt d'assonances que de rimes et les recherchent pour traduire un souvenir précis, elles s'éloignent quand il s'agit d'évoquer le temps présent, puis la rime revient, les noms se rapprochent quand le souvenir renaît ; les rimes hésitent enfin dans la dernière partie du texte par la comparaison du passé et de présent. Avec dérision, Derème conclut son explication de texte par un : « Maintenant, j'avoue que tout cela est bien subtil. » De dernier paragraphe de ce courrier fait allusion au chagrin causé par une « atroce aventure ». Le brochage intérieur de cette rare plaquette est fragile, les plats sont incurvés, mais l'ensemble est d'un intérêt supérieur.
