Reinforced back with some gaps filled, a restored on the half-title page where FIG sending tear. Our copy is presented in a gift box full black morocco, smooth spine, marbled paper plates and interior lamb. Rouault met Léon Bloy in 1904 through one of his works: "I am told that the painter Georges Rouault, a pupil of Gustave Moreau, a passion for me. Having found his master "Poor Woman" ... this book has bitten heart, incurably wounded "(Journal of L. Bloy, March 16, 1904). Thus is born a lasting friendship between the two artists. However when in 1905 Rouault exhibited at the Autumn "Real Poulot" Salon based on the novel of Bloy's reaction it is violent: "... This artist was believed able to paint seraphim appears not conceive that atrocious and avenging cartoons. Bourgeois infamy works in him a violent impact horror that his art seems mortally wounded. He wanted to make my characters Poulot "Poor Woman". At any price I want this illustration. It was to this that there is more tragic: two citizens, male and female, complete: candid, peaceful, merciful and wise to put the scum of the scare the horses mouth constellations. He made two assassins small suburb. "None better than Raissa Maritain knew not describe complex friendship that unites the young painter and the old writer, analyzing both" the underlying reason for their dissent "citing a letter Bloy Rouault 1907:" You are attracted exclusively by the ugly. "As their" admiration "she explains as" the living faith of the one and the other, (...) elevation and the rigor of their conscience artist How many times "." - Written it - in the years that followed, have we not seen Rouault in Bloy, standing, leaning against the wall, a slight smile on her closed lips, looking into the distance, apparently impassive face, but a pallor that would be accentuated when the issue of modern painting was discussed. Rouault pale, but kept through a heroic silence. And still, despite the determined opposition on the same subject of his art, he remained faithful to Léon Bloy. It seemed he had the same look in Bloy accusations that tormented him what he held most dear - not for submission to any discussion, but to test them against the force of instinct that the led into the unknown and was overcome any obstacle. "(" At the dawn of new friendships "in New Polling October 1941) This is the same Léon Bloy, respectful but steadfastly critical of his young friend, that he dedicate this portrait of a saint, this elegy beauty that will never be able to perceive in the work of Rouault.

"which this is the French translation:" Child, admit it: the son to whom his parents have not smiled is unworthy to approach the table of a god or being admitted to the bed of a goddess. "Light bites mainly affecting the margins of some leaves.Unique.In publishing this third book of poetry, Cocteau, young prodigy, 23, is adored by artistic and literary circles. Proust intimate friend of Jacques-Emile Blanche, Nijinsky and Diaghilev faithful disciple and Anna de Noailles, his ambition is to unite in his person all the talent around him.Dance Sophocles reference to dance "the young and divine Sophocles' executed naked in Athens after the naval victory at Salamis, reflects the ambition and enthusiasm of the young Cocteau novelist, painter, dancer, poet, he feels truly "worthy to approach the table [of] God [x]"."At par with the best artists, he was an intermediary between God and Earth. "In his biography, Claude Arnaud devotes a chapter (" The Living God ") to the psychology of the poet at the time:" It was a detached fragment of the creator. One of terrestrial bodies through which that Being evolving deliberated and finally contrasted to improve its inception. ".Thus, it is a freedman of his illustrious models Cocteau and fully assuming his artistic divinity is revealed in this ecstatic like the eponymous poem collection:Thanks to you, my pride, I wore the haloHosted by the charming speech God[...]Thanks to you, I have experienced the frantic strugglesWhere the pen and the paper and the ink bleakAre the links that we would like to shout,We would shout, sing, sigh, laugh,[...]And it takes us and when we feel it,Let them run off as a superb blood....The dedication to his mother on the first copy of the unique seven major papers, reflects the only real upward Cocteau Cocteau Eugenie.Sacred mother by her son, she had an influence deeply on the poet's life as in his work, marked by the ubiquity of Oedipal figure.Claude Arnaud describes at length the "filial momentum coupled with an almost loving attention (...)" it is only my love for you to cling to something real, the rest seems like a bad dream. "One can not also fail to see the choice of the quotation from Virgil incestuous this ambiguity that binds Cocteau to her mother.One of the most desirable for this copy of any scarcity of sources.Mercure de France Paris 1912 15x19cm relié

        PETER PAN PORTFOLIO (From ‘The Little White Bird’)

      London: Hodder and Stoughton. [1912]. First edition, deluxe issue. One of approximately 20 copies, signed on the mount of each plate by the artist. Additionally signed by the publishers on the limitation page. Large Folio. Publisher's full vellum with gilt titles to upper cover and silk ties. Housed in publisher's original cloth box with printed paper onlay. Twelve full size plates mounted with gilt ruled borders. Silk ties renewed. A superb copy, the vellum is beautifully clean and bright. The contents and all twelve plates, bright and fresh. The publisher's box shows some wear to the paper onlay on the lid and some damp-staining to the base. An exceptional copy, rare in this signed issue. The finest of all Rackham productions. These illustrations originally appeared in the gift book Peter Pan In Kensington Gardens published by Hodder and Stoughton in 1906. Rackham was asked by his publisher to select his favourite twelve of the fifty illustrations from that edition to produce a collector's portfolio of plates. These plates were re-engraved to be the size of the original watercolours and produced to the highest standard. Initially an edition of 600 copies was planned, with numbers 1-100 to be bound in full vellum with each plate signed by Rackham. However for reasons unknown and as reported in the 1936 Latimore and Haskell bibliography, "Mr. Rackham advises that he signed only about twenty".

In these memoirs Einstein supposed that the gravitational field can be characterized completely by one function, the local speed of light, analogous to the Newtonian description, where only the gravitational potential appears. By an extraordinary argument he extended the potential equation of Newton...In his second Memoir in 1912, he used the equivalence principle to show the influence of a static gravitational field on electromagnetic and thermal processes."

        THE INDIANS OF THE TERRACED HOUSES

      New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1912. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Typed Letter Signed. First Edition. Numerous illustrations and photographs mainly by C.F. and E.H. Saunders. New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1912. First edition. Drawing extensively on Saunders' travels in New Mexico and Arizona with his wife Elizabeth, this narrative account emphasizes the distinctive qualities of Pueblo art and culture and attempts to raise awareness about the shortcomings of "Indian policy operated from Washington, often with great injustice to the red man." Saunders (1859-1941) left a career as a Philadelphia businessman to move to Pasadena, California, where he turned to writing and penned a number of works extolling the natural splendor and cultural heritage of California and the Southwest. He was an important proponent of the Arts and Crafts Movement and is credited, along with Charles Lummis, with fostering interest in restoring the deteriorating California missions and reestablishing El Camino Real.

        Die zwölf Monate. Originallithographien. [Jahreszeiten, Januar - Dezember].

      Wien, Verlag der Wiener Werkstätte, o. J. [1912].. 4°. o. Pag. [13 Bll.] Lose Blattsammlung in OLwd.-Mappe m. aufgezogenen Farblithographien (2).. Erste Ausgabe. Vorderen Innendeckel und Mappenflügel mit Kleisterpapierüberzug. - Leichte Gbrsp., Ecken gering bestossen. - "Zu den begehrten Raritäten am österreichischen Kunstmarkt und zugleich mit zu den persönlichsten und schönsten Beispielen der graphischen Kunst Franz von Zülows (1883 - 1963) zählen dessen, meist in Leporelloform herausgegebene Monatshefte. Es waren durchwegs kolorierte Originalzeichnungen oder Handdrucke in der von ihm so virtuos gehandhabten Technik des Papierschnittschablonendrucks. Nach einem Entwurfmuster übertrug der Künstler im Durchpauseverfahren (Blaupapier) mit Bleistift die Darstellungen auf Packpapier. Sie wurden anschließend mit Deckfarben oder in Aquarellmanier einfühlsam koloriert und mit Tusche (Redisfeder) in ihren Konturen überarbeitet ... Er konnte für diese bibliophilen Kostbarkeiten, deren erste im Dezember 1909 erschien, einen Abonnetenstock von etwa zwanzig Freunden gewinnen, von denen die meisten selbst Künstler waren. Zu ihnen zählten Josef Hoffmann, Kolo Moser, Gustav Klimt, Alfred Roller, Emil Orlik, Otto Wagner, Berthold Löffler und der gleich mehreren anderen der hier genannten ebenfalls an der Kunstgewerbeschule tätige Entdecker und Promotor der "Wiener Jugendkunst" Franz Cizek. Erster Abonnent war die "Wiener Werkstätte", deren Gründer Hoffmann und Moser auch privat ab Dezember 1909 mit jeweils einer laufenden Abnahme Zülows Bestrebungen auf einem ihnen in manchem verwandten Zweig buchkünstlerischer Gestaltung unterstützen wollten. 1912 wurden die Hefte auch von der Staatsgalerie bestellt, dem Vorläufer der heutigen Österreichischen Galerie am Oberen Belvedere ... In den Monatsheften - und hier vor allem in den Ausgaben seit 1911/12 - gelingt es Zülow die unverwechselbar eigenständige kongeniale Weiterführung des Papierschnittschablonendrucks in dichten, kleinformatigen Werken, die neben dominierenden expressionistischen Elementen auch solche des Kubismus aufweisen. Dieses lange Zeit hindurch in Vergessenheit geratene Material zählt zweifellos zu dem was innerhalb des Gesamtwerkes von Zülow einer vorrangigen Aufwertung bedarf." (Quelle: Peter Baum, Franz von Zülow 1883 - 1963. S. 48ff)

        Inspiring, signed original typed letter (TLS) from Booker T. Washington and Ephemera

      Tuskegee: Booker T. Washington, 1912. 1st Edition. No binding. Very Good. [Tuskegee, 15 May 1912.] Letter by Booker T. Washington with his signature, requesting a contribution of tools for the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, addressed to Mr. J. T. McCready, a manufacturer in Ohio. 8vo. Single-leaf printed stationery from the Tuskegeee Institute, produced by the Strathmore Paper Company from Massachusetts, with watermark reading '[Parch]ment 1911 Strathmore'.Leaf measures 8.5 x 11 inches. Very good condition. Together with relative ephemera from the period. Original letter from Booker T. Washington, Principal of the Tuskegeee Institute for African Americans, and leading Black rights activist, signed in his hand, only three years prior to his death."We are in need of tools and implements - also for use on our farms... such as you distribute or manufacture... We have nearly sixteen hundred students here. They pay their own board and other personal expenses, but they are not able to pay the cost of teaching or the cost of equipping... Any help... we shall be glad to receive."Four ephemeral items accompany Washington's letter. Of particular rarity is a commemorative envelope for opening of the 'Booker T Washington Birthplace Post Office' in 1948, which bears the original signature of his daughter, Portia Washington Pittman, and a rare 3 cent postage First Day Cover (FDC) stamp of George Washington Carver, who taught for forty-seven years at the Tuskegee Institute and was born into slavery. Also with a rubber-stamped cachet reading 'Booker Washington Birthplace VA, Feb. 12, 1948, 5-PM' and with the official 'Opening Day Cancellation' stamp (now known as the first-day-of-issue cancellation). In addition to the envelope, two ephemeral prospectus leafs promote the Booker T. Washington Memorial Half Dollar, a legal tender minted in 1915, post mortem in honour of his legacy. The coin read 'From Slave Cabin to Hall of Fame.' Both leafs printed in Virginia, for the 'Booker T. Washington Birthplace Memorial Commission' whose president was S. J. Phillips. Finally, a single-leaf pamphlet, printed in conjunction with the latter two items, comprises the Atlanta Exposition Address delivered by Booker T. Washington in Atlanta in 1895.Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was born a slave on the tobacco plantation of James Burroughs in Franklin Country, Virginia. His father was an unknown white man and his mother, the slave of James Burroughs. Washington was an educator, author, orator, advisor to Republican presidents. From 1890 to 1915 he was the dominant leader in the African-American community. After the Civil War, he founded the Tuskegee School.
