Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 15x19cm, relié. - Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 15x19cm, relié. - Prima edizione, una delle sette copie numerate Olanda, gli unici documenti principali, la nostra con il n ° 1 e appositamente stampato per la madre di Jean Cocteau. Binding a bradel in piena pergamena, dorso liscio, quando la coda d'oro, parte del titolo guardie dolore marroni e contreplats di carta fatta a mano, coperte e colonna vertebrale conservato, testa rossa, contemporaneo vincolante sottoscritto da Dupré. Toccare autografo ed eccezionale dedizione firmato e datato dall'autore a sua madre, in latino, che ottiene un verso di Bucoliche di Virgilio: "INCIPE, parve puer: CUI parenti non Risere, mensa nec Deus hunc, dea dignità finale cubili è / Virgil / Jean .. ", che questa è la traduzione francese:" Bambino, ammetterlo: il figlio che i suoi genitori non hanno sorriso è indegno di avvicinarsi al tavolo di un dio o di essere ammessi al letto di una dea. " Morsi di luce che colpisce principalmente i margini di alcune foglie. Unico. Con la pubblicazione di questo terzo libro di poesie, Cocteau, giovane prodigio, 23, è adorato dai circoli artistici e letterari. Proust intimo amico di Jacques - Emile Blanche, Nijinsky e Diaghilev fedele discepolo e Anna de Noailles, la sua ambizione è quella di unire nella sua persona tutto il talento attorno a lui. Danza riferimento Sofocle a ballare ", il giovane e divina Sofocle 'eseguito nuda ad Atene dopo la vittoria navale di Salamina, riflette l'ambizione e l'entusiasmo del giovane romanziere Cocteau, pittore, ballerino, poeta, si sente veramente "degno di avvicinarsi al tavolo [di] Dio [x]". "Alla pari con i migliori artisti, era un intermediario tra Dio e la Terra. "Nella sua biografia, Claude Arnaud dedica un capitolo (" Dio vivente "), alla psicologia del poeta al tempo:" E 'stato un frammento staccato del creatore. Uno dei corpi terrestri attraverso il quale che essere in evoluzione deliberate e, infine, contrapposto a migliorare la sua nascita. ". Quindi, è un liberto del suo illustre modelli Cocteau e completamente assumendo la sua divinità artistica si rivela in questo estatico come la collezione omonima poesia: Grazie a voi, il mio orgoglio, ho indossato l'alone Ospitata dal suggestivo discorso Dio [...] Grazie a te, ho vissuto le lotte frenetiche Quando la penna e la carta e l'inchiostro desolante Sono i link che vorremmo gridare, Vorremmo gridare, cantare, sospirare, ridere, [...] E ci prende e quando ci sentiamo, Lasciate correre fuori come un sangue superbo. ... La dedica a sua madre sulla prima copia del uniche sette documenti importanti, riflette l'unica vera salita Cocteau Cocteau Eugenie. Madre Sacred da suo figlio, ebbe un'influenza profonda sulla vita del poeta, come nel suo lavoro, segnato dalla ubiquità di figura edipica. Claude Arnaud descrive a lungo la "slancio filiale accoppiato con un'attenzione quasi amorosa (...)" è solo il mio amore per te di aggrapparsi a qualcosa di reale, il resto sembra un brutto sogno. " Non si può anche non vedere la scelta della citazione di Virgilio incestuoso questa ambiguità che lega Cocteau a sua madre. Uno dei più auspicabile per questa copia di qualsiasi scarsità delle fonti. [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des 7 exemplaires numérotés sur Hollande, seuls grands papiers, le nôtre portant le n°1 et spécialement imprimé pour la mère de Jean Cocteau. Reliure à la bradel en plein vélin, dos lisse, date dorée en queue, pièce de titre de chagrin brun, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés, tête rouge, reliure de l'époque signée de Dupré. Légères piqûres affectant principalement les marges de certains feuillets. Émouvant et exceptionnel envoi autographe daté et signé de Jean Cocteau à sa mère, en latin, qui reprend l'un des vers des Bucoliques de Virgile : « Incipe, parve puer : cui non risere parentes, nec deus hunc mensa, dea nec dignita cubili est. / Virgile. / Jean » dont voici la traduction française : « Enfant, reconnais - la : le fils à qui ses parents n'ont point souri n'est digne ni d'approcher de la table d'un dieu, ni d'être admis au lit d'une déesse. » Exemplaire unique.   Lorsqu'il publie ce troisième recueil de poésie, Cocteau, jeune prodige de 23 ans, est adulé par les cercles artistiques et littéraires. Intime de Proust, ami de Jacques - Emile Blanche, fidèle de Nijinski et Diaghilev et disciple d'Anna de Noailles, son ambition est de réunir dans sa personne tous les talents qui l'entourent. La Danse de Sophocle, référence à la danse que « le jeune et divin Sophocle » exécuta nu dans Athènes, après la victoire navale de Salamine, reflète l'ambition et l'exaltation du jeune Cocteau : romancier, peintre, danseur, poète, il se sent véritablement « digne d'approcher la table [des] dieu[x] ». « à égalité avec les meilleurs artistes, il était un truchement entre Dieu et la Terre. » Dans sa biographie, Claude Arnaud consacre un chapitre (« Le dieu vivant ») à la psychologie du poète à cette époque : « Il était un fragment détaché du créateur. L'un des organes terrestres par lesquels cet Être en évolution délibérait, et finalement tranchait, afin d'améliorer sa création. » Ainsi, c'est un Cocteau affranchi de ses illustres modèles et assumant pleinement sa divinité artistique qui se dévoile dans ce recueil extatique à l'instar du poème éponyme :                                                          Grâce à vous, cher orgueil, je portais l'auréole                                                    Offerte par le Dieu charmant de la parole, [...]                                                    Grâce à vous, j'ai connu les frénétiques luttes                                                    Où la plume et la feuille et le morne encrier                                                    Sont les liens des vers que l'on voudrait crier,                                                    Que l'on voudrait hurler, chanter, soupirer, rire, [...]                                                    Et qu'il faut, lorsqu'ils sont en nous et qu'on le sent,                                                    Les laisser ruisseler comme un superbe sang. [...] La dédicace à sa mère, sur le premier exemplaire des sept rares grands papiers, témoigne du seul véritable ascendant de Cocteau : Eugénie Cocteau. Mère sacralisée par son fils, elle influa profondément sur la vie du poète comme sur son oeuvre, marquée par l'omniprésence de la figure oedipienne. Claude Arnaud décrit longuement cet « élan filial doublé d'une attention quasi amoureuse [...] : il n'y a que mon amour pour toi qui m'accroche à quelque chose de vrai, le reste me semble un mauvais rêve. » On ne peut d'ailleurs manquer de voir dans le choix de la citation de Virgile cette ambiguïté incestueuse qui lie Cocteau à sa mère. Une des provenances les plus désirables pour cet exemplaire de toute rareté.

        Vie de Mélanie bergère de la Salette écrite par elle - même en 1900 - Son enfance (1831 - 1846)

      Mercure de France, 1912. - Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 12x19cm, broché. - First Edition. Autografo Precious firmata dall'autore pittore Georges Rouault: "Niente per la sua arte - Non c'è caricatura". Rinforzato indietro con alcune lacune riempite, un restaurato sulla pagina occhietto in cui figura l'invio di lacrimogeni. La nostra copia viene presentato in una confezione regalo completa marocchino nero, dorso liscio, piatti di carta marmorizzata e agnello interni. Rouault ha incontrato Léon Bloy nel 1904 attraverso una delle sue opere: "Mi hanno detto che il pittore Georges Rouault, allievo di Gustave Moreau, una passione per me. Dopo aver trovato il suo padrone "Poor Woman" ... questo libro ha morso il cuore, inguaribilmente ferito "(Journal of L. Bloy, 16 marzo 1904). Nasce così una duratura amicizia tra i due artisti. Tuttavia, quando nel 1905 Rouault esposto al Salon d'Automne "Real Poulot", basato sul romanzo di reazione di Bloy è violento: "... Questo artista è stato creduto capace sembra serafini di dipingere non concepire che i cartoni animati atroci e vendicatori. Infamia Bourgeois lavora in lui un orrore impatto violento che la sua arte sembra ferito mortalmente. Voleva fare i miei personaggi Poulot "povera donna". A qualsiasi prezzo che voglio questa illustrazione. Fu per questo che non vi è più tragico: due cittadini, maschi e femmine, completi: candido, pacifici, misericordiosi e saggi di mettere la feccia della paura costellazioni cavalli bocca. Ha fatto due assassini piccolo borgo. "Nessuno meglio di Raissa Maritain non sapeva descrivere un'amicizia complessa che unisce il giovane pittore e il vecchio scrittore, analizzando sia" la ragione di fondo per il loro dissenso ", citando una lettera Bloy Rouault 1907:" Voi siete attratti esclusivamente dal brutto. "Come loro" ammirazione ", spiega come" la fede viva di uno e l'altro, (...), elevazione e il rigore del loro artista coscienza Quante volte "." - Scritto it - negli anni che seguirono, non abbiamo noi visto Rouault in Bloy, in piedi, appoggiato al muro, un lieve sorriso sulle labbra chiuse, guardando in lontananza, volto apparentemente impassibile, ma un pallore che sarebbe accentuata quando la questione della pittura moderna è stata discussa. Rouault pallido, ma mantenuto attraverso un silenzio eroico. E ancora, nonostante l'opposizione decisa sullo stesso tema della sua arte, egli rimase fedele a Léon Bloy. Sembrava lui aveva lo stesso sguardo in accuse Bloy, che lo tormentava ciò che di più caro - non per sottoporli a una discussione, ma per metterli alla prova contro la forza dell'istinto che l' ha portato verso l'ignoto ed è stato superare ogni ostacolo. "(" All'alba di nuove amicizie "a New Polling ottobre 1941) Questo è lo stesso Léon Bloy, rispettoso ma fermamente critico della sua giovane amico, che egli dedica questo ritratto di un santo, questa bellezza elegia che non sarà mai in grado di percepire nell'opera di Rouault. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Léon Bloy au peintre Georges Rouault: "Rien pour son art - Il n'y a pas de caricature". Dos renforcé comportant quelques manques comblés, une déchirure restaurée sur la page de faux - titre où figure l'envoi. Notre exemplaire est présenté dans un coffret en plein maroquin noir, dos lisse, plats de papier marbré et intérieur en agneau. Rouault fait la connaissance de Léon Bloy en 1904 par l'intermédiaire d'une de ses oeuvres: « On m'apprend que le peintre Georges Rouault, élève de Gustave Moreau, s'est passionné pour moi. Ayant trouvé chez son maître "La Femme pauvre"..., ce livre l'a mordu au coeur, blessé incurablement » (Journal de L. Bloy, 16 mars 1904). Naît alors une indéfectible amitié entre les deux artistes. Cependant lorsqu'en 1905 Rouault expose au Salon d'Automne "Monsieur et Madame Poulot" inspiré du roman de Bloy, la réaction de celui - ci est violente: « ... Cet artiste qu'on croyait capable de peindre des séraphins, semble ne plus concevoir que d'atroces et vengeresses caricatures. L'infamie bourgeoise opère en lui une si violente répercussion d'horreur que son art paraît blessé à mort. Il a voulu faire mes Poulot personnages de "La Femme Pauvre". À aucun prix je ne veux de cette illustration. Il s'agissait de faire ce qu'il y a de plus tragique : deux bourgeois, mâle et femelle, complets : candides, pacifiques, miséricordieux et sages à mettre l'écume de la peur à la bouche des chevaux des constellations. Il a fait deux assassins de petite banlieue. » Nul mieux que Raïssa Maritain ne sut décrire l'amitié complexe qui unit le jeune peintre et le vieil écrivain, analysant à la fois "la raison profonde de leur dissentiment" en citant une lettre de Bloy à Rouault de 1907 : « Vous êtes attiré par le laid exclusivement. " comme leur "admiration" qu'elle explique par "la vive foi de l'un et de l'autre, (...) l'élévation et la rigueur de leur conscience d'artistes". "Combien de fois - écrit - elle - dans les années qui ont suivi, n'avons - nous pas vu Rouault chez Bloy, debout, appuyé contre le mur, un léger sourire sur ses lèvres closes, le regard au loin, le visage apparemment impassible, mais d'une pâleur qui allait s'accentuant lorsque la question de la peinture moderne était abordée. Rouault pâlissait, mais gardait jusqu'au bout un silence héroïque. Et toujours, malgré cette irréductible opposition sur la question même de son art, il est resté fidèle à Léon Bloy. On eût dit qu'il venait chercher chez Bloy les accusations mêmes qui tourmentaient en lui ce qu'il avait de plus cher, - non pour les soumettre à une discussion quelconque, mais pour éprouver contre elles la force de l'instinct qui l'entraînait vers l'inconnu et qui devait triompher de tout obstacle." ("A l'aube de nouvelles amitiés" in La Nouvelle Relève, octobre 1941)C'est le même Léon Bloy, respectueux mais immuablement critique à l'égard de son jeune ami, qui lui dédicace ce portrait d'une sainte, cette élégie de la beauté qu'il ne saura jamais percevoir dans l'oeuvre de Rouault.

Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant - garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse - Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re - remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition.

Signature du cachet de la signature de l'artiste dans l'angle inférieur droit de l'œuvre, et signature du cachet de l'atelier au verso. Louis Anquetin, grâce à son amitié avec le critique d'art Gustave Geoffroy qui fut nommé administrateur des Manufactures Nationales, obtint trois commandes de cartons pour les Gobelins, la "Bourgogne" en 1911, un tapis "Les cygnes", et en 1912 "La Normandie", tapisserie. Une trace de pliure centrale, sinon bel état de conservation. Provenance : atelier de l'artiste, référencée au catalogue Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant - garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse - Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti - pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re - souvenir des leçons de Michel - Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle. Ne laissant que quelques œuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques. En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses œuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint - Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc. une feuille

Alexey Vasilyevich Babin (1866-1930), Russian historian, library scientists, bibliographer became one of the first librarians who developed American-Russian cultural and library relationship in the end of 19th century. He is one of the pioneers of American studies in Russia. Babin went to the USA in 1889 where he was accepted to Cornell University. He graduated with a degree in history. To pay for his education he worked in university library and became a professional librarian during these years. In 1902 he was invited to work in the Library of Congress as curator of Slavic literature. He was the first Russian specialist to work there. One of the most important periods of his time in Library was when he participated in buying a famous book collection of Siberian merchant G.V. Yudin in 1906. Babin was the key intermediary in this process and among other things made a catalog of the collection in Russian and English which included more than 100 000 volumes. Yudin's collection became keystone of Slavic department of the Library of Congress while Babin became the head of this department. Before his death in 1930 he signed his will in which he left everything to the Library for further development of Slavic department. He was one of the first Russian immigrants to gain scientific recognition. While he was in USA he corresponded with his Russian colleagues. During his visits he shared the information on conditions of American book and library business. He went back to Russia for some time working in different areas including even teaching English. He also wrote this book on history of the United States. Even though Yudin didn't get the full previously agreed payment and books were not kept in one place as he requested, they remained friends and Yudin acted as his publisher in 1912.

        DIARIO MÉTRICO EN APLAUSO DE LA INMACULADA CONCEPCIÓN DE MARÍA SANTÍSIMA, Distribuido para todo el año.

      - 21 hh.+1 blanca+480 pp. Ejemplar muy limpio y con el papel muy fresco, si exceptuamos una mancha en el pie de la portada y primera hoja de poca importancia. Buena encuadernación en pasta española, de época, con la lomera cuajada inter-nervios. 20,7x15,3. Exlibris manuscrito de anterior poseedor en portada. En la Emprenta de Pascoal de Silva. Lisboa Occidental, MDCCXVII. Hay un soneto para cada dia del año, con un comentario lleno de citas de padres y doctores, aunque el autor declara que «la erudición de tan sagrados asuntos es totalmente ajena de una seglar profesión, por lo que excusa el atrevimiento con «el conforme afecto de mi voluntad, que con invariable solicitud, casi en continua tarea de muchos años, prorrumpió en la métrica consonancia de estos sonetos. Hay muy pocas referencias de este desconocido poeta conceptista de origen portugués. Sabemos que el gran poeta colombiano Rafael Pombo, fallecido en 1912, publicó algunos poemas de Soares junto con los suyos propios en un libro que llevaba por título "Revólver místico".En todo caso parece que de José Soares de Silva no existen más pistas, o al menos nosotros no las encontramos, en la historia literaria, aunque sí sospechamos que bien pudiera ser uno de los fundadores de la portuguesa Academia Real da Historia en 1720, pues aparece citado por Menéndez Pelayo en la Historia de los Heterodoxos Españoles.El ejemplar es calificado de rarísimo por Antonio Gómez Restrepo en su libro de "Crítica Literaria" publicado por Villegas editores.Palau, ref. 315373, cita una venta de Batlle en 1928.

      1912. The 1912 Rackham Peter Pan[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. BARRIE, J.M. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. From The Little White Bird by J.M. Barrie. A New Edition. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: n.d. [1912]. First trade edition, later issue, of the 1912 new edition (second Rackham edition) with a new color frontispiece and an additional seven full-page black and white plates. Large quarto (10 9/16 x 8 1/4 inches; 269 x 210 mm.). [viii], 125, [1] pp. Fifty tipped-in color plates mounted onto green card with descriptive tissue guards, seven full-page black and white plates and twelve black and white drawings in the text. Publisher's original smooth green cloth pictorially stamped on front cover and spine, plain green endpapers. Gilt on spine very dull, lower corner of front board a little creased. Ink inscription dated Christmas 1921 on front free end-paper. A good copy.Rackham first illustrated Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens in 1906 with just fifty mounted color plates.J.M. Barrie?s novel The Little White Bird (1902) ?contains the first sketches for Peter Pan. The narrator is ?a gentle, whimsical, lonely old bachelor?, an author by profession, whose ambition is to have a son. He meets a penniless young couple whose own son David becomes a substitute in his affections. He explains to David that ?all children in our part of London were once birds in the Kensington Gardens; and that the reason there are bars on nursery windows and a tall fender by the fire is because very little people sometimes forget that they no longer have wings, and try to fly away through the window or up the chimney.? The central chapters of the book tell the story of one such child, Peter Pan, who ?escaped from being a human when he was seven days old?and flew back to the Kensington Gardens??The Peter Pan chapters of The Little White Bird were re-issued in 1906 as Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, with colour plates by Arthur Rackham; this was the book which first made Rackham?s work famous. It should not be confused with Peter and Wendy (1911), Barrie?s novelization of the play Peter Pan? (The Oxford Companion to Children?s Literature).Latimore and Haskell, p. 40. Riall, p. 114.

        åŒ—斎漫画 [Hokusai Manga] [Hokusai Manga]

      Kyoto.: Yamada Naosaburo.. [Reprint].. 明治45. [1912].. Complete 15 volume set. Profuse woodblock illustrations by Hokusai throughout on folded leaves. Japanese 4 hole stab binding, string ties on one volume loosening but still sound, lower and occasional upper edges of covers little damp stained, though staining is only really visible on the pastedowns and has not affected the leaves of the volumes themselves. The attractive black, grey and pale pink images of a huge range of aspects of life are clean. Original case faded and worn, insect damage to paper lining on the inside of the case, a little damage to the title label on the upper flap. A good set of a classic work. The thirteen volumes which make up this classic work are a collection of sketches covering a wide variety of subjects including everyday life in Edo Japan, supernatural beings, landscapes and a range of natural history subjects. The sketches are not connected with each other but are a selection of thousands of images by Hokusai, although there is now considerable doubt by art historians that the sketches in the final volume are Hokusai's own work. "It is probably true to say that Hokusai's reputation in the West was made by this endlessly inventive series of picture-books, thirteen volumes of which were published during his lifetime." (Jack Hillier and Lawrence Smith - Japanese Prints 300 Years of Albums and Books). A good complete set of this classic work. .
