Illustrated edition - the pictures apparently have been taken from an English edition of the time. 20 chapters from David Copperfield was printed in Tbilisi in Armenian.

Dickens in Armenian language first started to appear in 1880s-1890s, the first edition of this novel was printed in 1897 in Tbilisi. This is the first illustrated edition of this book. Rare. WorldCat locates one copy (Michigan). The National Library of Armenia doesn't have this edition.

Contrary to the practice of his peers, Kuhnert distinguished himself by sketching tropical animals in the wild, not in zoos. He made pictures by sketching, etching, watercolor, and oil painting. Kuhnert is considered one of the most important German animal painters of his time. As he was not a professional hunter, it often took a great deal of effort to track down his subjects.

        Henry Bing: Strassenszene (Originalzeichnung)

      1912 - Tusche, Farbstift und Deckweiß auf Papier. 30 x 23,5 cm. Rechts unten signiert. Biografie Henry Bing (1888 Paris - 1965 Paris): Der französische Lithograf, Zeichner und Maler Henry Bing zählt bereits mit 17 Jahren zu den Mitarbeitern der beiden Münchner Zeitschriften Jugend und Simplicissimus. Innerhalb eines guten Jahrzehnts werden sie knapp 900 Werke des Künstlers veröffentlichen und damit seinem Namen einen hohen Bekanntheitsgrad verschaffen. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass sich von ihm weder eine Porträtfotografie noch Informationen zu seiner Ausbildung erhalten haben. Spätestens ab 1905 lebt Bing in der bayerischen Kunstmetropole und findet als Stammgast im Café Stefanie, einem beliebten Treffpunkt moderner literarischer und künstlerischer Kreise, Anschluss an die Schwabinger Bohème. Neben den Einnahmen aus der Publikation seiner Karikaturen in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus lebt er vom Verkauf der Originale. Diesen übernehmen ab 1912 die renommierten Kunsthändler Franz Josef Brakl und Hans Goltz. Der Erste Weltkrieg, den Bing als französischer Staatsbürger in deutscher Haft verbringt, bereitet seiner Künstlerexistenz ein jähes Ende. 1920 kehrt er nach Paris zurück und handelt fortan als Galerist für Klassische Moderne mit Werken von Henry Rousseau, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani sowie Chaim Soutine. Bings frühe Beiträge in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus orientieren sich stilistisch und inhaltlich an den Karikaturen älterer Kollegen, vor allem denen Rudolf Wilkes. Bald entwickelt er jedoch eine eigene Handschrift und entdeckt die Außenseiter der Gesellschaft als Thema für sich. Vagabunden und Bettler, Tagelöhner und Fabrikarbeiter, Dienstmägde und Marktfrauen, aber auch Künstler, Literaten und Vertreter der Demi-Monde, oft angesiedelt in der Welt der Kaffeehäuser und Varietés, werden zu Bings bevorzugten Motiven. Seine meist auf wenige Figuren reduzierten Szenen bringt er vorzugsweise mit Tusche und Farbstift flott zu Papier, wobei er die physiognomische Erscheinung der Modelle stark vereinfachend überzeichnet, um den jeweils dahinterstehenden Menschentypus freizulegen. Hierbei bleibt stets das empathische Auge des Künstlers spürbar. Denn ungeachtet der satirischen Stoßrichtung der Darstellung, die in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus durch eine Textpointe zusätzlich unterstrichen wird, ist Bing nie verletzend. Vielmehr wirbt er um Verständnis und Sympathie für all jene, die das Schicksal an den Rand der Gesellschaft gedrängt hat. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Photograph Album Documenting Life on the Sac & Fox and Colville Indian Reservations

      Oklahoma and Washington, 1912. Photograph Album. Very good. 33 photographs mounted in a 16-page album that measures 7" x 10". The cardboard album cover is stamped with a snakeskin design that Ms. Stephens has personalized with her name, monogram, and titled, "Photographic Miscellany." The photographs measure 2.5" x 4.25". All are captioned and protected by tissue protectors inserted between the album's leaves. An unaddressed letter from Ms. Stephens used to forward the album to a friend or family member is laid in. It is signed with her monogram and bears the return address of the U. S. Allotment Service, St. Mary's Mission, via Omak, Washington. The album, letter, and photographs are all in nice shape. Four photographs show images of the Sac and Fox Reservation in Oklahoma. Two photographs show boys and girls at the reservation school; one is of a windstorm at the school farm, and one is of Dolly Bigwater and two of her children. The other 29 images are of the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington, which was home to a number of tribes including the Chief Joseph Band of the Nez Perce. Those photographs show the Almira-Nespelem Stage, the stagecoach aboard a Columbia River ferry, Siwash Indians including two named Klooch and Mak-It (at the time "Siwash" carried no derogatory connotation but was simply a Chinook Jargon term used to denote a member of a northwestern tribe), "Indian Camp Nespelem" including its Hee-Hee House, tepees, preparation for a dance, a war dance, a native herald mounted on horseback, rodeo contests, horseback racing, etc. Although none of the photographs show Ms. Stephens, several show her two Allotment Service co-workers, Faustus P. Hardesty and Lewsor Smaerts, at work and relaxing in and by their two tent home-offices at Camp Nespelem. The Allotment Service was created by the now-discredited Dawes Act of 1887 to replace the failed reservation system, lift Native Americans out of poverty, and assimilate them into American society. After reservations were surveyed by the Allotment Service, adult male tribal members and married women were allotted 160 acres each for their own personal homestead. When the allotments had been completed, remaining reservation land was auctioned off to white homesteaders. From its inception, the act was decried by many as an attempt to steal tribal lands. Regardless of intent, over time it became clear that for many reasons, the program was more detrimental than the reservation system and it was finally completely abandoned in 1948. These images of Allotment Service workers living and working among Native Americans are exceptionally scarce. As of 2016, there are no similar collections in the trade and no auction records are listed at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows only three similar albums are in institutional collections; two at Yale and one at Princeton.

        Aesop's Fables

      1912. Charles Folkard's Aesop's FablesEdition DeLuxe Limited to Two Hundred and Fifty CopiesTwelve Superb Color Plates and Numerous Black and White IllustrationsFOLKARD, Charles, illustrator. Aesop's Fables. London: Adam & Charles Black, [1912]. Edition de Luxe. Limited to 250 numbered copies, signed by the publisher (of which this is number 138). Quarto (10 x 7 1/2 inches; 253 x 191 mm.). xx, 209, [1, blank], [2, advertisements] pp. Twelve full-page tipped-in color plates, each one mounted on thick brown paper stock with descriptive tissue-guards. Numerous black and white illustrations throughout the text. Publisher's white cloth, front cover and spine pictorially decorated in color and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Minimal soiling to covers, some light foxing to end-papers, otherwise a near fine copy.Charles James Folkard (1878-1963) was an English illustrator. He was born in Lewisham, South London and worked for a period of time as a conjuror after attending a show at the Egyptian Hall in London. His artistic talent became evident when he began designing his own programmes for his magic shows. He contributed humorous drawings to Little Folks and the Tatler, and received his breakthrough in 1910 when he entered the gift book market with The Swiss Family Robinson. In 1915, he created Teddy Tail, a popular cartoon character who ran in the Daily Mail newspapers for decades. In 1911, he created seventy-seven drawings and eight watercolor plates for Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio, a volume which remained the definitive edition and in print for decades. The Children's Shakespeare and Grimm's Fairy Tales were published the same year and represent his first work for the publishing firm of A & C Black. The partnership lasted twenty-seven years. His next works for the firm were Aesop's Fables (1912), The Arabian Nights (1913), and Ottoman Wonder Tales (1915), a work that evokes the style of Persian manuscripts.After World War I, Folkard continued to produce arrays of books for the firm of A. & C.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Among chapters of this edition are The Discovery of America, Virginia, New England in 1765, Constitution, Washington's Ruling 1789-1797, Unites States in 1910 etc. The edition is supplied with bibliography, index, chart on president's election (with number of votes), chart on US territories (size and population), chart on each state (the time of entry, size and population).
