        THE TALE OF TIMMY TIPTOES

      1911. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1911. Original dark green paper boards with arched pictorial onlay. First Edition of these adventures of Timmy Tiptoes (and his wife Goody), grey squirrels trying to get nuts collected and stored up for the oncoming winter. Timmy is wrongly accused of stealing other squirrels' nuts and is thrown through a tree-hole into his and Goody's nut storehouse -- where he gets sidetracked and eats so many of the nuts that he becomes too fat to get out. The presence of chipmunks and a bear in this tale have led to speculation that the author had American children in mind when she wrote and illustrated this book.~Customers could buy TIMMY TIPTOES either in light brown or dark green paper boards, priced at 1/-, or in decorated cloth, at 1/6. This copy is in dark green boards, and is near-fine (the slightest of wear at a couple of corners, very faint scuffing on the rear board). This is remarkable condition for fragile paper-covered boards intended for children's use. Linder pp 208-209 and p. 429; Quinby 20.

Pages are in good condition, as are most of the photographs, with some occasional creasing where the photo has escaped its corners at some point. Contents near fine, album itself only fair to good.

        LES NUITS

      Paris: J. Meynial, 1911. ONE OF 120 COPIES ON VÉLIN D'ARCHES, of a total edition of 160. Hardcover. Extraordinarily Elegant and Tastefully Sensuous. 292 x 197 mm (11 1/2 x 7 3/4"). 73, [7] pp. ONE OF 120 COPIES ON VÉLIN D'ARCHES, of a total edition of 160. SPLENDID MIDNIGHT BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY P. AFFOLTER (stamp-signed on front turn-in and dated 1912), covers ornately gilt and inlaid in an Art Nouveau design featuring an outer border of cresting gilt tools and a large central panel within a frame of plain rules and sinuous flowering vines, brown and gold inlaid morocco lyres at corners, raised bands, spine gilt in five compartments, two with titling, the other three with a floral frame, the elongated central compartment additionally with an inlaid lyre, turn-ins gilt with frame of plain and dotted rules and curling cornerpieces, aqua silk jacquard endleaves in a diapered floral pattern, iridescent blue moiré flyleaves, all edges gilt. Original dark blue paper wrappers bound in. In a matching (just slightly rubbed) marbled slipcase with fleece lining and morocco lip. Added color illustrated title page, division titles, and wood-engraved border decorations by Adolphe Giraldon, and with frontispiece, four vignettes, and four plates, all printed in color, by Luc Olivier Merson. Ray 320 bis. Faintly browned rectangle on fly title from bookmark, mild offsetting from plates onto blank pages opposite, otherwise A SUPERB COPY with no signs of use, the lovely binding unworn and especially lustrous. This is a greatly elegant item that combines beautiful poetry with beautiful design and execution in illustration and binding. Alfred de Musset (1810-57) was still in his teens when he began publishing his popular tales, and he found success in poetry, fiction, and drama. He is generally recognized, with Hugo, Vigny, and Lamartine, as one of the four great French Romantic writers, although he is perhaps most notorious for his tortured and tortuous love affair with novelist George Sand. The four love poems included here--"La Nuit de Mai," "La Nuit de Décembre," "La Nuit d'Aôut," and "La Nuit d'Octobre"--are set in the form of a dialogue between the poet and his muse. Giraldon's Art Nouveau-style decorations are most pleasing, and even better are Merson's depictions of passionate lovers, which capture the essence of Musset's work. As Ray observes, Merson "interprets Musset's poems as if they were classical eclogues, achieving a suave harmony." Luc Olivier Merson (1846-1920) was a leading painter of the Belle Epoque, whose works ran the gamut from murals at the Pantheon to the design of French banknotes. According to Ray, "Merson was a favorite with bibliophiles, and his books are often found in sumptuous bindings by the masters of the time." Duncan and De Bartha characterizes Affolter as one of the "most noted binders" in turn-of-the-century Paris, and his work here certainly supports that accolade. The motifs in the binding are very much in harmony with the illustrations and decorations in the book, and the work is expertly finished. While there is no way to be sure, the similarities between the decorations on the inside and the outside of the book suggest the possibility that both are the work of the same designer, and Duncan & De Bartha says that Giraldon designed bindings for a number of Paris bookbinders, including Affolter. Whoever is responsible, the volume could hardly be a more successful example of tasteful sensuousness.

        The World Crisis, full set of first editions, four of six in dust jackets

      Here is a beautiful, collector-grade full set of six first editions, four of them in dust jackets. Collectors will note that the U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. publication preceded the British. Churchill was in a special position to write this history of the First World War, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, he was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose, containing what is regarded as some of Churchill's finest writing. All six volumes offered are first edition, first printing, ranging from truly fine to near-fine condition. All four dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing their original front flap prices. The Unknown War dust jacket is clean with fractional loss confined to the spine ends, some wrinkling and a .5 inch closed tear at the spine head, and modest spine toning. The Aftermath jacket has light overall edge wear, losses at the spine ends to a maximum depth of .25 inch, and modest toning to the spine. The 1916-1918 Volume I jacket has clean and complete faces with just light age toning and minor wear at the corners. The jacket spine is a bit darkened with fractional loss at the spine head and chipping to a maximum depth of 3/8 inch at the spine tail. The 1916-1918 Volume II dust jacket has a clean and complete rear face with just a hint of age toning and minor wear at the corners. The jacket's front face is slightly more toned (likely due to transfer browning from the slipcase in which it was originally issued), bears a few tiny dark spots, and has three tiny chips along the top edge (likely where the jacket long ago caught on the aforementioned slipcase). The jacket spine is a lightly toned with fractional losses at the spine ends and a tiny hole along the lower third of the rear hinge. The volumes beneath the jackets are all excellent. The Unknown War is a truly fine, bright copy with a 1931 previous owner inscription inked on the ffep, a tiny Chicago bookseller's sticker affixed to the rear pastedown, and ghosting on the rear endpaper from the rear dust jacket flap. The Aftermath is near-fine with no spotting, just some age-toning to the untrimmed fore edge, some dust soiling to the top edge, and a bookshop sticker on the rear pastedown. Both 1916-1918 volumes are near-fine. The bindings are extremely clean, marked only by slight dulling to the bottom edges of the spines. The contents are clean and tight with no ownership marks. The untrimmed fore edges show the usual age-toning and the top edge shows some soiling and light spotting. The two unjacketed volumes - 1911-1914 and 1915 - are unusually bright and clean examples. The 1911-1914 volume is of special note. The first printing proved particularly prone to both extreme sunning and blackening of the gilt. Here is an extraordinary fine and extremely unusual example with rich, unfaded spine color, strong gilt, pristine binding, and crisp, immaculate contents. We have never seen a finer copy without a dust jacket. The 1915 volume is the attractive first printing binding variant featuring gilt stamping on the front cover and two gilt stars on the spine (see Cohen p.223). Condition is near-fine, with excellent spine presentation and only slight color shift at the spine. Trivial wear is confined to spine end wrinkling and lightly bumped corners. The contents are bright and tight with a small owner ink stamp on the pastedowns and a crease to the ffep. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(I-V), Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves” (H.G. Wells).“From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!” (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).

        The World Crisis, full set of first editions, four of six in dust jackets

      Here is a beautiful, collector-grade full set of six first editions, four of them in dust jackets. Collectors will note that the U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. publication preceded the British. Churchill was in a special position to write this history of the First World War, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, he was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose, containing what is regarded as some of Churchill's finest writing. All six volumes offered are first edition, first printing, ranging from truly fine to near-fine condition. All four dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing their original front flap prices. The Unknown War dust jacket is clean with fractional loss confined to the spine ends, some wrinkling and a .5 inch closed tear at the spine head, and modest spine toning. The Aftermath jacket has light overall edge wear, losses at the spine ends to a maximum depth of .25 inch, and modest toning to the spine. The 1916-1918 Volume I jacket has clean and complete faces with just light age toning and minor wear at the corners. The jacket spine is a bit darkened with fractional loss at the spine head and chipping to a maximum depth of 3/8 inch at the spine tail. The 1916-1918 Volume II dust jacket has a clean and complete rear face with just a hint of age toning and minor wear at the corners. The jacket's front face is slightly more toned (likely due to transfer browning from the slipcase in which it was originally issued), bears a few tiny dark spots, and has three tiny chips along the top edge (likely where the jacket long ago caught on the aforementioned slipcase). The jacket spine is a lightly toned with fractional losses at the spine ends and a tiny hole along the lower third of the rear hinge. The volumes beneath the jackets are all excellent. The Unknown War is a truly fine, bright copy with a 1931 previous owner inscription inked on the ffep, a tiny Chicago bookseller's sticker affixed to the rear pastedown, and ghosting on the rear endpaper from the rear dust jacket flap. The Aftermath is near-fine with no spotting, just some age-toning to the untrimmed fore edge, some dust soiling to the top edge, and a bookshop sticker on the rear pastedown. Both 1916-1918 volumes are near-fine. The bindings are extremely clean, marked only by slight dulling to the bottom edges of the spines. The contents are clean and tight with no ownership marks. The untrimmed fore edges show the usual age-toning and the top edge shows some soiling and light spotting. The two unjacketed volumes - 1911-1914 and 1915 - are unusually bright and clean examples. The 1911-1914 volume is of special note. The first printing proved particularly prone to both extreme sunning and blackening of the gilt. Here is an extraordinary fine and extremely unusual example with rich, unfaded spine color, strong gilt, pristine binding, and crisp, immaculate contents. We have never seen a finer copy without a dust jacket. The 1915 volume is the attractive first printing binding variant featuring gilt stamping on the front cover and two gilt stars on the spine (see Cohen p.223). Condition is near-fine, with excellent spine presentation and only slight color shift at the spine. Trivial wear is confined to spine end wrinkling and lightly bumped corners. The contents are bright and tight with a small owner ink stamp on the pastedowns and a crease to the ffep. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(I-V), Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

        Dessin original : "une jambe qui sait se conduire"

      Dessin original d'André Hellé, 32 x 24 cm, à l'encre et au crayon, d'un soldat japonais. Légendé. Six trous de punaises sur les côtés, bord supérieur légèrement empoussiéré, un numéro au crayon au coin supérieur gauche, quelques inscriptions au verso. « "Hellé est l'un des grands noms de l'histoire du livre moderne pour enfants, admiré ?voire adoré ? par beaucoup, salué par toutes les anthologies, depuis Apollinaire et Carco jusqu'aux plus récentes publiées à travers le monde. On se souvient de la Boite à joujoux, dont Debussy écrivit la musique, et de son Arche de Noé, dont la deuxième version a été rééditée par Circonflexe. (...) Grâce aux travaux de Claude-Anne Parmegiani et Annie Renonciat, à l'exposition Livre mon ami et à celle consacrée à Hellé par la Bibliothèque Faidherbe, on connaît son style : un monde ludique et coloré, où les personnages sont des jouets et les jouets des personnages. La naïveté de l'inspiration est sublimée par la géométrie des lignes simplifiées : l'imagerie se fait ici ultra-moderne. De récentes recherches ont permis d'établir la date de publication de la première version de l'Arche de Noé, sous la houlette du génial imprimeur-éditeur Alfred Tolmer : 1911. Cette date est surprenante : nous ne sommes pas dans les années 1930, mais à l'époque de Benjamin Rabier, de Job, de Boutet de Monvel, de Beatrix Potter et de Bécassine. Les artistes russes n'ont pas encore apporté ce regard nouveau qui allait définitivement rénover le livre d'images. Le singulier modernisme d'André Hellé a 20 ans ?et une guerre- d'avance ! Disons tout de suite que, en ce qui concerne le livre d'images c'est la France qui est incontestablement à l'avant-garde. Elle l'est depuis 1912. Quel scandale avait produit Hellé. On cherchait en vain à cet art audacieux un ancêtre à travers la longue et noble lignée des illustrateurs du XIXe siècle. Andre Hellé, c'était tout neuf. On se disait qu'il était bien facile de faire ces animaux en bois avec des couleurs unies. Mais ces animaux et personnages qui faisaient penser à des jouets en bois étaient extraordinairement vivants. Dédaignant les détails, Hellé avait saisi le rythme caché et il le traduisait avec une apparente naïveté. En réalité toutes ces images débordaient d'esprit et de finesse et Debussy le comprit, lui qui composa pour La boite à joujoux l'exquise musique de ballet que l'on applaudit encore chaque année à l'Opéra-Comique. Hellé a été le courageux précurseur. Il a d'ailleurs continué à créer album après album: Le tour du monde en 80 pages, Maman les petits bateaux, les Douze Plus Belles Fables du monde, etc., etc. On ne saurait dire qu'il a eu des imitateurs ou même des disciples. Mais avec lui le mouvement moderne de peinture est entré dans l'illustration du livre pour enfants, et quand on voit maintenant les livres de Parain, de Tranchant, d'Edy Legrand, de Brunhof, on ne peut se défendre de songer à celui qui fut l'avant-coureur de l'avant-garde, tout seul, avant la guerre, il y a bien longtemps." (Claire Huchet Bishop, French Review, 1936) Mais d'où venait-il, ce Hellé ? Il naît de parents pharmaciens à Boissy Saint-Léger, en mars 1871, tandis que Paris est à feu et à sang, et que la France doit céder l'Alsace-Lorraine à l'Allemagne. Il fait un passage à Louis-le-Grand, prend quelques leçons de piano, mais semble surtout s'intéresser au dessin et à ses rêves. Devenu dessinateur et graveur, il commence vers l'âge de 25 ans à publier des dessins signés dans la presse satyrique. Il en réalisera des centaines, dans d'innombrables journaux illustrés, et sa signature ornera souvent la couverture de Fantasio, du Sourire, du Rire... En 1904, c'est la consécration : l'Assiette au beurre lui confie l'illustration d'un numéro complet (consacré au monde de la nuit parisienne.). C'est un honneur que ce jeune homme partage avec Valloton, Rabier, Steinlen, Jossot, Grandjouan, Kupka et Van Dongen ».

        ACQUAINTANCES, OLD AND NEW, AMONG REFORMERS

      S. E. Tate Printing Company [Milwaukee]: [S. E. Tate Printing Company], 1911. First Edition. Hardcover. A spectacular, as new copy of a very scarce book. Duodecimo (5-1/4" x 7-3/4") bound in bright blue publisher's cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover; 115 pages. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait and several plates. Brown describes meeting Frederick Douglass and touring with Susan B. Anthony as well as her experiences as a minister. Bookplate of Brown's daughter; Gwendolen Brown Willis, on the front free endpaper. Olympia Brown (1835-1926) was refused admission to the University of Michigan because of her gender and instead attended Mount Holyoke College and Antioch University. She decided to become a preacher because she wanted to counter the prevalent and, she believed, erroneous "doctrine of endless punishment" offered by traditional hellfire-and-brimstone ministers. She had to argue to gain admittance to the Universalist Divinity School at St. Lawrence University where she became the first female graduate of a mainstream theological school. In 1863, when she was posted as minister to a congregation in Weymouth Landing, Massachusetts, she was the only female granted full clergy status in any mainstream Christian denomination. Almost as soon as she arrived in Massachusetts, she became active in the women's suffrage movement. She was later posted at a church in Bridgeport, Connecticut--where circus master P. T. Barnum was in her congregation--but received little support from her congregation, where a traditionalist faction sought to have her removed from the pulpit during her first pregnancy. She was unemployed for two years, before accepting a post at the struggling Church of the Good Shepherd in Racine, Wisconsin, which had been without a regular minister for several years. At Racine, she granted female church members equal voting rights on church matters and brought in such guest speakers as Susan B. Anthony, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Livermore, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In 1887, just after her father's death, she switched her life's priorities, becoming a part-time minister and a full-time activist for women's rights. She served as Vice President of the National Woman Suffrage Association, founded the Federal Suffrage Association in 1892 (which became the Federal Equality Association), and became one of the first members of the more radical and confrontational Woman's Party when it was formed by Alice Paul in 1913. She was one of the last of the "old time suffragettes" who lived to see women granted voting rights in 1919. After casting her first ballot in 1920 at the age of 85, she became active in the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Her church in Racine has since been renamed Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church.

        Versi e Disegni.

      Milano, Società Editrice "La Grande Attualità", 1911. 1911 In-8° grande (260x197mm), pp. 222, (2), bellissima brossura editoriale illustrata in rosso aragosta da Rubino con delicate figurazioni fiabesche. 30 illustrazioni in b.n. a piena pagina e 20 vignette in nero al tratto su pagine riquadrate e decorate in ocra. Magnifico esemplare in barbe, allo stato di nuovo. Seconda edizione, perfettamente contemporanea alla prima e ad essa tipograficamente identica (si tratta, in effetti, di una seconda tiratura emessa per saturare le richieste editoriali, essendo la prima tiratura limitata a soli 500 esemplari), di uno dei più squisiti figurati del Novecento italiano, in cui le poesie per bimbi di Rubino si fondono mirabilmente con il corredo illustrativo. Il volume è considerato il primo libro d'artista italiano per l'infanzia. Pallottino, Storia dell'illustrazione italiana, p. 226: "I versi erano stati composti tra il 1899 e il 1902, i disegni rappresentavano l'esuberante ed ironica esposizione del piu' macabro ed allucinato repertorio decorativo simbolista, mentre la 'mente' era quella del pittore, scrittore e illustratore autodidatta". Gambetti / Vezzosi, p. 788. Alligo, Antonio Rubino. I libri illustrati, n. 13: "Del tutto identica alla prima edizione, salvo per la carta, per la mancanza della sovraccoperta e dell'ex-libris... Uscita contemporaneamente alla prima, come edizione economica in vendita in tutte le librerie". Alligo, Pittori di carta, II, pp. 129-130: "Nello stesso anno della prima edizione ne esce una seconda non numerata, del tutto identica alla prima salvo per la dicitura seconda edizione e per il colore della copertina, che dà sul verdino" [la nostra copia presenta invece la stessa gradazione cromatica dell'edizione originale].
