        Japanese Photo Album

      1912. JAPAN. Japanese Photo Album. Collection of Fifty Hand-coloured Albumen prints. With tissue guards. Oblong folio, 260 x 350 mm (images 200 x 50 mm), bound in contemporary thick Japanese lacquer boards with hand-painted scene of fishing boat with Mount Fuji in the background. [Japan, ca 1890]. |~||~||~||~||~| These artistic photographic prints record the final vestiges of traditional Tokugawa Japan as the culture slowly emerged into the modern era (Meiji period). Temples, gardens, Shinto shrines, Kyoto shrines and street scenes, and small village scenes, Mt Fuji, tea huts, Japanese bridges, portraits of geishas, and a Kyoto sandal shop, are just a few examples of the subject matter portrayed herein. All prints are unsigned but are very much in the style of Kusakabe Kimbei (ca. 1880s -1912, Yokohama). The hand-colouring is delicately and superbly applied. "The process of hand-coloring a photograph was infinitely tedious, and a master colorist could be expected to produce two or three finished prints in a twelve hour day" (Worswick, p. 143). Surface cracks to top lacquer board. This is as fine a sample of this sort of Japanese commercial photography that one can find on the market. See: Clark Worswick, Japan: Photographs 1854-1905 (New York: Knopf, 1979).

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.

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".
