        Bells and Other Poems

      London: Hodder and Stoughton [1912]. TEG, others untrimmed. Bound in cream vellum elaborately stamped in gilt with bell design and titled in gilt, spine very slightly darkened with one small mark, original gros grain silk ties present though darkened and fragile. Limited Edition, this copy is not numbered but is signed by Dulac. Laid into the book is a portrait of Dulac at work in his studio. 28 tissue guarded plates as well as duotone illustrations by Dulac. The color plates capture perfectly the eerie and macabre tone of Poe's work, using deep, rich blues and muted oranges and browns. Dulac's human figures seem particularly anguished and alone, echoing Poe's intent for the writing itself. Hughey 29, White pg 61.. First Edition. Very Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Edmund Dulac. 4to.

        La danse de Sophocle.

      Mercure de France 1912 - - Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 15x19cm, relié. - 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&#39 époque signée de Dupré. Emouvant et exceptionnel envoi autographe daté et signé de l&#39 auteur à sa mère, en latin, qui reprend l&#39 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&#39 ont point souri n&#39 est digne ni d&#39 approcher de la table d&#39 un dieu, ni d&#39 être admis au lit d&#39 une déesse. " Légères piqûres affectant principalement les marges de certains feuillets. Exemplaire unique. Lorsqu&#39 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 Nijinsky et Diaghilev et disciple d&#39 Anna de Noailles, son ambition est de réunir dans sa personne tous les talents qui l&#39 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&#39 approcher la table [des] dieu[x] ". « A 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 Etre en évolution délibérait, et finalement tranchait, afin d'améliorer sa création. ». Ainsi, c&#39 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&#39 auréole Offerte par le Dieu charmant de la parole, [.] Grâce à vous, j&#39 ai connu les frénétiques luttes Où la plume et la feuille et le morne encrier Sont les liens des vers que l&#39 on voudrait crier, Que l&#39 on voudrait hurler, chanter, soupirer, rire, [.] Et qu&#39 il faut, lorsqu&#39 ils sont en nous et qu&#39 on le sent, Les laisser ruisseler comme un superbe sang. . La dédicace à sa mère, sur le premier exemplaire des 7 uniques grands papiers, témoigne du seul véritable ascendant de Cocteau : Eugènie Cocteau. Mère sacralisée par son fils, elle influa profondément sur la vie du poète comme sur son oeuvre, marquée par l&#39 omniprésence de la figure oedipienne. Claude Arnaud décrit longuement cet « élan filial doublé d&#39 une attention quasi amoureuse (.) : "il n&#39 y a que mon amour pour toi qui m&#39 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Goethe G A N Z L E D E R - L U X U S A U S G A B E Nr.XVIII (von XXV)

      München Verlag von F.Bruckmann A.G., 1912.. . Vollständige Ausgabe im originalen Verlags-Handeinband der Zeit: zwei Ganzfranz-Bände, geheftet auf 5 erhabene Bünde, weinrotes genarbtes Maroquin / Ecrase-Ganzleder / Leder / GLdr / Ldr im Format 18,6 x 26 cm mit dekoriertem Rücken- und Deckeltitel in Goldprägung, ebenfalls goldgeprägter Deckel-Zierliniendekoration, Kopfgoldschnitt, handgestochenem Kopfband, Lederhäubchen, Zeichenband sowie Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, Buchbinder-Prägung "Carl Sonntag jun.Leipzig" auf den vorderen Innendeckeln. 851 Seiten, mit Anhang und Register der Eigennamen und Hauptbegriffe sowie Falltafeln "Synchronistische Tafeln" im 2.Band. Exemplar Nummer XVIII der Vorzugsausgabe von XXV Exemplaren, mit Druckvermerk in Band 1: "Von diesem Buche wurden XXV numerierte Luxusexemplare abgezogen, dieses ist die Nummer XVIII". - Aus dem Inhalt: Einleitung - Das Leben (Umrisslinien) - Die Persönlichkeit - Der praktisch Tätige - Der Naturforscher - Der Dichter - Der Weise - Anhang - Register der Eigennamen - Register der Hauptbegriffe - 2 Tafeln. - Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in guter Erhaltung (ganz leicht stockfleckig stockfleckig; oberer hinterer Außenfalz oben an Band II mit feinem Einriss 3 cm, sonst sehr gut). - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14"

(Chris Beetles).'Raymond Jacberns' was a pseudonym used by Georgiana Mary Isabel Ash, born in 1866 in Montreaux, France. She was the daughter of Anglican clergyman Rev. Selby Attree Horne Ash, and his wife Mary Louisa Augusta Webber. Although few of the details of her life are known, it appears that she lived with her mother in St. Leonard's in the 1880s and 1890s, until her mother's death in 1894. Ash retired, at this point, to a cottage in Crowhurst, Battle, where she lived until her death in 1911.

        Lithographed poster: Liberty or Pen: The brutal Mill Owners of Little Falls will send these men and women to the Penitentiary unless you act at once

      N.p., n.d. [Little Falls, ca 1912?]: Little Falls Defense Committee. Exceptional strike poster to raise defense funds for individuals arrested following the Little Falls Textile Strike of 1912. Though less well-known than the two massive IWW actions that sandwiched it - Paterson and Lowell - the Little Falls strike marked an important (if ultimately pyrrhic) victory for labor, and marked a rare example of co-operation between various non-aligned leftist factions, including main-line Socialists, Anarchists, and the I.W.W. (under whose direction the strike proceeded). Though the strikers won concessions, including shorter hours and higher pay, most of the strike leaders were arrested and, despite a vigorous defense effort, most wound up serving substantial prison sentences. These included IWW organizer Benjamin Legere and the Italian anarchist Filipo Bocchini. & & This poster, issued to raise funds for the defense of the arrested strike organizers, features portraits of the principal defendants, including M. Helen Schloss, the strike's heroine. Schloss, a tuberculosis nurse, had been brought to Little Falls by mill owners to address the local consumption epidemic. In the process of investigating the living and working conditions of the Little Falls millworkers, which she found appaling, she resigned her position and became one of the strike's lead organizers. She was arrested, examined for mental illness, and eventually released, at which point she joined William D. Haywood and Carlo Tresca on their nationwide fundraising and lecture tour, at which events this poster would have been displayed. Exceptionally rare. Not known in commerce; catalogued in the collection of only one OCLC member institution (University of British Columbia); not in the collection of the Little Falls Historical Society, which owns a number of other strike-related broadsides and handbills. Original lithographed poster, 25" x 19". Printed in red and black on uncoated stock. Text in three languages (English, Polish, and Italian), within rules, surrounding central 8-image portrait montage. Blank rules at center (unused). Old wrinkles and wear; single mended tear to upper margin; no losses or significant soil - Very Good.

Here translated into French from the original Arabic by Hadji-Mazem."The Leicester Galleries commissioned from Dulac the fifty water colours, retaining the copyrights, and, with Hodder and Stoughton, brought out the book. It was an overnight sensation that unequivocally established Dulac's reputation."The Arabian Nights illustrations caught the attention of all the contemporary reviewers. The October Bookman published Dulac's portrait with the prophetic caption: 'those fifty colour illustrations for The Arabian Nights will soon be the talk of the literary and artistic community'...Recognition also came from Black & White magazine...'A new illustrator has arisen, and of the strength and originality of his work there can be no two opinions'...The London Times followed... : 'Mr. Dulac's distinction is that he is as good on the poetical side as on the grotesque...he has a truly exquisite sense of colour, and of noble design...'."At the time, Edmond Dulac was only twenty-five years old.Hughey 16tt.

        THE HOUSE OF PRIDE and Other Tales of Hawaii

      1912. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1912. 8 pp undated ads. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black, grey and white. First Edition, which consisted of only 4,340 copies. This collection of six tales is another result of the aborted Snark voyage, published three years later (when Jack was in the middle of constructing his "Wolf House"). It is a very different group of tales than those just issued as SOUTH SEA TALES...~His prejudices had mellowed. His Chinamen were courageous and wise and sometimes wealthy, while miscegenation could produce admirable and beautiful people who made Anglo-Saxon bias look foolish. Many of the stories conveyed a pleasant nostalgia for a way of life that he liked. Only in the tales about the lepers was his calm broken by his compassion and his horror of diseased flesh. There but for the grace of luck went he... These were stories of Polynesia, where the people were half-children and half-gods in Jack's eyes. His Melanesian stories [ADVENTURE, SOUTH SEA TALES] were of half-devils and all-beasts. [Sinclair]~As with SOUTH SEA TALES, this title is not at all common, especially in collectible condition; the attractive binding (initialed like the other by "G.H.") is often found substantially rubbed away, but here the volume is in fine condition (just the slightest of rubbing at the tips). The front free endpaper bears a signature, a Philadelphia address blind-stamp, and a 1916 ink-stamp. Sisson & Martens p. 62; Blanck 11936.

He notably illustrated editions of William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, J.M. Barrie and Oliver Goldsmith.She Stoops to Conquer is a comedy by Irish author Oliver Goldsmith that was first performed in London in 1773. The play is a favorite for study by English literature and theatre classes in Britain and the United States. It is one of the few plays from the 18th century to have an enduring appeal, and is still regularly performed today. It has been adapted into a film several times, including in 1914 and 1923. Initially the play was titled Mistakes of a Night, and indeed, the events within the play take place in one long night…

        Bells, The

      1912. Only Poe Could Have Written The Poems Only Dulac Could Have Illustrated Them[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. POE, Edgar Allan. The Bells and Other Poems. With Illustrations by Edmund Dulac. London: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d. [1912]. First trade edition. Large quarto (10 7/8 x 8 1/2 in; 277 x 217 mm). Unpaginated. Twenty-eight mounted color plates, with descriptive tissue guards. Ten black ink head-pieces on tan backgrounds and portrait of Poe on the title-page, also in black ink on tan background. Original grey-green cloth, gilt stamped on front cover with all-over Dulac design of clusters of bells and lettered in gilt. Spine lettered in gilt and with similar design. Early ink presentation on half title, minimal rubbing to extremities, otherwise a very fine copy.Loosely inserted is the Leicester Galleries notice for the exhibition of the watercolours for the book.“Dulac’s pictures for The Bells were more uniform in mood and style than groupings for almost any other book of his to this time. Although water colours, they are overstreaked with gilt in some cases, crayon in others, to produce rich haunting effects. Deep shades of blue and a special deep pink-rust predominate throughout...The Outlook, which printed, in black and white, plate 22... commented: ‘…for the book thinking people will say with grace…sometimes Dulac’s pictures are deep-coloured and intense, sometimes dim and ghost-like. But one and all are sensitized to record impressions of unearthly beauty or horror. Only Poe could have written the poems. Only Dulac could have illustrated them.’…Not to be overlooked here are the sophisticated ink drawings Dulac made for headpieces. Although many of the books he illustrated had small ink decorations throughout…he had not worked in this medium so fluently since the days of doing illustrations for The Pall Mall magazine (1906-1908)…As the 10 Bells headpieces show, he had now become truly masterful with his pen” (Hughey).Hughey 29a

        Color Standards and Color Nomenclature

      Second Revised and Expanded Edition by Published by the author, Washington, D.C.: 1912. Very good- in dark green cloth covered boards with gilt text on the front board with the gilt text on the spine barely visible. The cloth at the head and heel of the spine and around the edges of the boards is rubbed and bare of color. The hinges have been nicely reinforced with cloth tape compatible in color to the end sheets. Without a dust jacket. 44 pages of text followed by 53 plates of color swatches containing 1,115 named colors. Each plate is protected by a tissue guard. An errata slip is tipped-in prior to plate XXII explaining why plates XXII and XXIV are not in the index of color names. Twenty years in the making of this book represents a seminal achievement in the advancement of color identification for use in ornithology and botany. Ridgway (1850-1929) was a botanist and an ornithologist, a founder of the American Ornithologists' Union and curator of birds in the United States Museum (Smithsonian) from 1880 to 1915. This edition greatly expands and corrects the first edition of the title which was released in 1886. Hand stenciling of the plates for the first edition lead to "considerable variation in different copies of the book." (p. 13) This volume is a very scarce and an important work in the areas of ornithology, botany and color theory.
