        Premiers Paysages. Les Leçons de Choses du Petit Coloriste

      Henri Laurens, Editeur, Paris 1911 - First edition of Maurice Denis's iconic modernist coloring book, Premiers Paysages. A founding member of the group of French painters known as Les Nabis, Denis was invited by editor Henri Laurens to contribute to a popular children's art series, Les Leçons de Choses du Petit Coloriste. In response, during the summer of 1911, Denis produced a series of dreamlike French landscapes. "Petits coloristes" can lose themselves in painting scenes of villages and mountains, countryside and seashore, with captions by Denis that provide a wry running commentary on his creative process: "Ce n'est pas difficile de faire des maisons quand on ne fait pas toutes les fenêtres." (Denis even reminds his young readers to keep their paints separate and their brushes clean.) The quality of these vibrant landscapes, which exemplify Denis's famous definition of painting as "a flat surface covered with colors assembled in a certain order," was immediately recognized. In 1912, the bibliophilic society "Les XX" commissioned a deluxe edition of twenty signed copies, featuring an extra plate and multiple impressions of each image. This first edition of Premiers Paysages, while less lavishly produced, reflects the book's original identity as an inexpensive, ephemeral activity book, and is extremely scarce in any condition. A clean near-fine copy. Quarto, original color pictorial paper boards, sixteen staple-bound pages. Includes seven color plates and seven matching uncolored plates, with two additional uncolored plates reproducing the color images printed on the boards. Light general foxing and toning.

Une jeune femme, vêtue d'un simple collier et coiffée d'un turban à la façon de Paul POIRET, hume du bout des doigts une corbeille de fleurs et de fruits parfumés. Elle repose nonchalamment sur un divan couvert de coussins dans un intérieur typiquement Art déco. Le fameux cordon pour "Les Choses de Paul Poiret vues par Georges Lepape" est à portée de sa main. Ses paupières sont légèrement closes afin de donner libre cours à cet ultime sens qu'est l'odorat. Une affichette pour "Rosine parfumeur" représente la même jeune femme, couverte d'une simple tunique, où pose, geste, et environnement sont indentiques (reproduite p. 56, in Claude Lepape et Thierry Leferre, "Georges Lepape ou l'élégance illustrée", Hersher, 1983).

        A Pair of Qing Dynasty Ancestor Portraits, the Court Official in deep blue robes, his wife in red

      China, 1911. Very good condition. A pair of richly colored, highly decorative Chinese ancestor portraits, depicting an official of the court of the Qing dynasty (1664-1911) and his wife, each seated on chairs draped in silk, and wearing embroidered multicolored robes highlighted in silver and gilt. The portraits are still and dignified, the subjects gazing calmly out from the highly formal settings.The woman is dressed in a red dragon patterned robe, with blue green headdress ornamented with hanging strings of pearls and jade beads. Her husband, the court official, is dressed in a dark blue surcoat trimmed in white fur (likely his winter court dress), a ceremonial collar, and a long necklace. At the feet of each are carved wooden stools.These commemorative portraits were commissioned by families to call forth the presence of the deceased ancestors in religious ceremonies. The portraits allowed the family to ask for blessings from their ancestors and also revealed the status of the individual in society. The costumes were painted with great care because the design elements of each garment revealed the rank of the official. The costumes are painted in layers of thick color, contrasting with the thinner application of paint for the faces.Watercolor and gouache on silk with thin strips of silk brocade at the top and bottom, the outermost borders of pale moire silk.A few faint areas of toning in a few areas of the undecorated background of the woman's portrait; a bit of toning along the extreme right edge of the undecorated background of the man's portrait. The images approximately 16 1/2 x 26", in gilt and silver decorated wood frames, 21 1/2 x 30 1/2"

        Eigenh. Musikzitat mit U. Wien, 1911.

      1911. 1 S. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. 2 Notenzeilen aus "ballo in maschera" von Verdi. - Der aus Rom gebürtige Baritonsänger war u. a. am Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, am Teatro Pedro II. in Rio de Janeiro, am Teatro São José in São Paulo und an der Covent Garden Opera in London zu hören. "1892 wirkte er bei der Uraufführung der Oper ‚I Rantzau' von Pietro Mascagni mit. Jules Massenet schrieb für Battistini die Titelpartie seiner Oper ‚Werther' für Bariton um. Auch Giuseppe Verdi schätzte den Sänger sehr. Es kam jedoch zu einer Mißstimmung zwischen den beiden Künstlern, als Battistini die Hauptrolle in Verdis ‚Falstaff' ablehnte. Richard Wagner erklärte Battistinis Interpretation der Arie ‚O du mein holder Abendstern' aus der Oper ‚Tannhäuser' zu seiner Lieblingsversion. Battistini gilt als eine der herausragenden Sängerpersönlichkeiten seiner Zeit" (Wikipedia).

        [TSIOLKOVSKY DEFENDING HIS IDEAS] Zashchita aeronata [i e The Defence of the Aeronat]

      Kaluga: Izdaniye avtora; E.T. Archangelskaya, 1911. 12 pp.: ill., photos. Original illustrated wrappers. Fine. Very rare pre-revolutionary brochure in mint condition. Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935) is a man whose ideas made the space exploration possible. In the 1910s he has already proven that it's not impossible to send some kind of operated apparatus into space, also he calculated the speed and conditions of such travel. His ideas were too ahead of their time and he met a little support. He was producing different projects of aerostats, aeronats and dirigibles trying to find the one that would fit his calculations. He had to publish the project using his own money in his native town of Kaluga and send brochures out to scientific societies and individual scientists. This brochure is one of the early projects of Tsiolkovsky. In this brochure Tsiolkovsky defended his ideas. He gave concrete examples of how his works didn't meet public's approval but 2-3 years later different physicists were proving him right. He continued to promote his version of aeronat made of metal. In this book he provided specific technical and engineering characteristics of his space vehicle.
