        Du côté de chez Swann

      Grasset 1913 - - Grasset, Paris 1913, 11,5x18,5cm, relié. - Édition originale sur papier courant, exemplaire de seconde émission comportant le bon achevé d'imprimer du 8 novembre 1913, la faute typographique à Grasset corrigée sur la page de titre ainsi que l'absence de table. Reliure en demi maroquin gris anthracite à coins, dos à cinq nerfs, date en queue, plats de couverture et dos remontés sur onglets, tête dorée, étui bordé de maroquin gris, ensemble signé Thomas Boichot. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust au comte Primoli : « Hommage d'attachement respectueux et bien vif. » Joseph Napoléon, comte Primoli (1851-1927), est l'arrière-petit-neveu de Napoléon Bonaparte. Très lié à la famille impériale sous le Second Empire, il fréquente ensuite avec fidélité le Salon de sa tante bien-aimée, la princesse Mathilde, dans son hôtel particulier de la rue de Berri. Sa conversation raffinée et spirituelle y font des merveilles et il y rencontre, en bibliophile passionné, certains des plus grands écrivains de son temps : Gustave Flaubert, Théophile Gautier, les Goncourt ou encore Guy de Maupassant. C'est là, également, qu'il fait la connaissance dès les années 1890 du tout jeune Marcel Proust. Les deux hommes s'apprécient beaucoup et le comte, qui a à cœur de renforcer les liens littéraires et culturels entre Rome (sa ville natale) et Paris, invite plusieurs fois l'écrivain dans la capitale italienne. Proust ne s'y rendra jamais mais à ses yeux, les lettres de Primoli contiennent à elles seules « un peu du charme de Rome » (lettre de Marcel Proust au comte Primoli, début 1907, citée dans Pasquali C., Proust, Primoli, la moda, p. 26). à la mort en 1904 de la princesse Mathilde, qui avait permis leur rencontre, Proust écrira au comte : « Laissez-moi vous dire seulement que je pleure amèrement avec vous, parce que j'aimais avec un respect infini la Princesse - et parce que cela me fait tant de peine de penser que vous êtes si malheureux, vous si bon à qui de tout son cœur on voudrait tant de bonheur, vous au cœur douloureux et blessé de qui on voudrait tant que fût évité tout coup cruel. » (lettre de Marcel Proust au comte Primoli, 4 janvier 1904, ibid., p. 21) à la publication de Du côté de chez Swann en novembre 1913, le comte Primoli est l'un des tout premiers dédicataires de l'ouvrage, ainsi que l'atteste une lettre de Proust, datée de début janvier 1914, dans laquelle il évoque notre exemplaire : « Cher Monsieur, Quand mon livre a paru vous êtes une des toutes premières personnes à qui j'ai pensé. Dès le premier jour des envois, je répétais à mon valet de chambre : "l'exemplaire du comte Primoli est parti ?" Il me disait oui et c'était vrai. Seulement aujourd'hui quand j'ai reçu cette carte si amusante et si jolie où vous parlez de l'escorte de la Joconde "en guise de musicien", j'ai dit à mon valet de chambre : "Vous voyez, c'est une carte du comte Primoli." Il l'a regardée. "Comment ! Monsieur le Comte Primoli est à Rome ! Mais j'ai envoyé le livre à Paris !" J'ai eu un moment de fureur et de désespoir. Peut-être d'ailleurs votre concierge vous a-t-il envoyé le livre à Rome. Mais dans le doute je vous envoie un second exemplaire à Rome. Seulement je n'ai plus de première édition. Vous en trouverai une à Paris quand vous reviendrez, elle y est depuis longtemps. Je ne peux vous envoyer qu'un exemplaire du deuxième tirage où il y a d'ailleurs un peu moins d'énormes fautes que dans le premier. Mais je suis trop malade et malheureux en ce moment pour pouvoir corriger tout cela moi-même . » (ibid., p. 51) Le présent exemplaire est donc l'exemplaire de la seconde émission que Proust envoie à Primoli à Rome et cite dans cette lettre. Précieux témoignage des liens chaleureux entre Marcel Proust et le comte Primoli.

        LA MAISON PASCAL. Roman fantaisiste.

Exemplaire nominatif sur papier du Japon offert à Alfred Humblot, directeur des éditions Paul Ollendorff (avec lettre autographe et long envoi). Rare. Jeanne MARAIS [pseudonyme de Lucienne MARFAING] LA MAISON PASCAL. Roman fantaisiste. Paris, Librairie Paul Ollendorff, s.d. (1913) - Imprimé à Tours chez E. Arrault et Cie. 1 volume in-12 à grandes marges (19,5 x 18,5 cm), broché, 278 pages. Couverture jaune imprimée en rouge et vert. Quelques grandes marges empoussiérées, quelques coins roulés, quelques légers accrocs aux bords de la couverture imprimée, sinon très frais. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. EXEMPLAIRE IMPRIMÉ SPÉCIALEMENT SUR PAPIER JAPON POUR M. ALFRED HUMBLOT. EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE AU MÊME. Long et intéressant envoi autographe de l'auteur sur le faux-titre : "A Monsieur Alfred Humblot, mon cher éditeur, vous ressemblez à ces gentilshommes du XIe siècle qui levaient une armée à leurs frais pour partir en croisade. Vous aussi - afin de défendre nos idées et de conquérir les infidèles - vous équipez des milliers de petits soldats : les livres . C'est donc au capitaine qui les mène au combat que j'offre cet hommage. Souhaitons - sans l'espérer - qu'aucun soldat de l'armée Pascal ne revienne du champ de bataille, et que vous soyez obligé de faire un nouveau tirage . au sort, pour en appeler d'autres sous votre drapeau. Jeanne Marais. 6 février 1913". Alfred Humblot était le directeur des éditions Paul Ollendorff. Une lettre autographe de la même au même est jointe au volume : "25 février 1913. Cher Monsieur, Voici un article qui semble prouver que les critiques n'ont pas si peur que cela de parler de la Maison Pascal : on ne pourrait rédiger un compte-rendu plus explicite - et il me semble qu'il n'est pas mauvais pour la vente. Allons, monsieur Humblot, un bon mouvement : j'ai commencé, Reboux continue . à vous, à jouer. C'est le moment de forger votre arme : ne laissez pas refroidir le fer. Et vous pouvez bien lâcher votre Poulet pour vous occuper de mes coqs. Je serre amicalement votre dextre parcimonieuse, Jeanne Marais." (l''article de Reboux est épinglé à cette lettre.) La Maison Pascal n'est pas sans rappeler par son titre la Maison Philibert de Jean Lorrain (1904). Jeanne Marais (1888-1919) est éreintée par la critique moraliste de son époque pour qui ses romans " sont des gravelures. Le Huitième péché est plus propre que les précédents, c’est peu dire, car c’est encore assez vilain. Peau de Chamois est le pire : il est absolument sensuel." La Maison Pascal, roman fantaisiste, est un divertissement léger qui sous couvert d’une romance entre un jeune homme et une femme mariée, plonge dans l’univers des vieilles filles vouées à une vie névrotique. Monsieur Pascal tente de les secourir en ouvrant pour elles une maison de divertissement. EXEMPLAIRE DE CHOIX. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Art Deco dance poster - 1913.

      ART DECO DANCE POSTER"Gertrud Leistikow Tanzspiele', lithographic poster designed by Emil Pirchan, published by Kunst im Druckin Munich, 1913. Size 122 x 90 cm.Gertrud Leistikow was born on 12 September 1885 in Bückeburg, Germany. She studied at the Academy of Applied Arts in Dresden and would later continue her training in Berlin.Leistikow began to dance between 1906 and 1910 and soon drew condiderable crowds in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Lausanne, Utrecht and Sarajevo. In the summer of 1914 Leistikow joined Rudolf von Laban"s troupe in Ascona, where she had a major role in Von Laban's dance drama Der Sieg des Opfers next to Mary Wigman. In that year she also performed in the Netherlands for the first time, where there was a lot of interest for her shows. An article on her appeared in Dutch art magazine Wendingen, and the appreciation she got may have played a role in her decision to settle in The Netherlands. In 1921 she married a rose grower from Aalsmeer.Leistikow often performed during these years, but also started focussing on teaching. She opened dance schools in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. After the birth of her son in 1925, she spent most of her time teaching. On June 5, 1929 a (first) farewell evening was held in the Amsterdam Stadsschouwburg. There were several to follow. After she returned from a two-year stay in the Dutch East Indies, she opened another dance school at Amsterdam Stadhouderskade. Leistikow would countinue to teach there until her death in 1948.Leistikow"s dance was all about improvisation. The body had to follow the soul organically. According to contemporaries her strength was not her virtuoso technique, but the dramatic intensity of her performances. Initially, Leistikow had a preference for the tragic and melancholic, later she shifted to the grotesque. As accompanying music, she usually chose from the nineteenth-century Romantic repertoire and folk songs. Dutch dance critic Werumeus Buning was a great admirer of Leistikow. He characterized her dance as fluent, soft and musical, where "the beautiful floating life of her arms remains an everlasting memory'.Her poster "Gertrud Leistikow Tanzspiele' was designed by Austrian born artist Emil Pirchan (1884-1957). Pirchan was one of the most important designers of applied arts of the German-speaking world in the early 20th century. His designs for theater, opera and film, his numerous posters, illustrations and graphics were groundbreaking. Pirchan was recognized for excellence with the golden Fügermedaille and the Vienna Academy Master Award.Price: € 1.650,-.

      London: George G. Harrap & Company,, 1913. Octavo. Original red morocco, spine and front cover lettered, ruled and decorated in gilt, rear board ruled in blind, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, printed on japon throughout. Colour frontispiece with captioned tissue-guard and 31 similar plates by Abanindro Nath Tagore and others under his instruction.

First edition, deluxe limited issue. The tête-de-tirage, number 1 of 75 copies, inscribed "To Viscountess Astor MP, with sincere regards" on the front free endpaper. Nancy Astor, the first female member of parliament, took an outspoken interest in India and particularly the rights of Indian women, though as such viewed the issue of self-determination with a certain ambivalence, writing to the Secretary of State for India, Samuel Hoare, to ask whether he could "sleep easy in his bed and think of India governed only by Indian men" (Mandler, ed., After the Victorians, p. 113). This copy also with the ownership inscription of Guru-Sadaya Dutt to the front free endpaper, dated 24 November 1928. Dutt (sometimes listed as Datta) was the husband of the Indian reformer and women's-rights activist Sarojini Nalini: his biography of her was published by the Hogarth Press in 1929. His other works include The Folk Dances of Bengal (1954). Sister Nivedita, born Margaret Noble in County Tyrone, travelled to India in 1898 to become a disciple of Swami Vivekananda, Hindu thinker and founder of the Ramakrishna mission, "one of a number of movements created within Hinduism in the nineteenth century" (ODNB). In 1900 she founded a school for girls in Calcutta, on which she spent most of her assets. She died in 1911 with her Myths of the Hindus & Buddhists about a third finished, leaving it to be completed by Coomaraswamy, an English-educated art historian of Tamil origin who was influential in the revival of Indian culture, and by his death in 1947, "recognized internationally as a leading Indologist, art critic, historian, and linguist.

        In Queer Street.

      London: F.V. White and Co., 1913., 1913. Inscribed First Edition. Octavo, pp.312. Bound in publisher's red cloth, with gilt titles to upper, gilt titles and publisher's imprint to spine, bottom edge uncut.

Binding shows well, spine a little sunned, corners and spine ends bumped, minor spotting to front edge of textblock, slight lean. According to a contemporary reviewer in the Western Mail (24th October 1913), Hume's "latest book, "In Queer Street", is much on a par with the rest of his work. It's principal merit lies in an ingenious plot, and a murder mystery which keeps the reader in a pleasing state of suspense down to the end of the volume. ... [A] sort of Montague and Capulet business," with a significant amount of murder in addition.

        Création d\'un centre mondial de communication par Hendrik Christian Andersen (2 Bände in einem Band), IN FRANZÖSISCHER SPRACHE,

Der Titel in rot-schwarz gedruckt und mit einer Vignette, auf der Rückseite mit einem Widmungsblatt mit einer Heliogravüre (Lichtdruck), mit 25 Heliogravüren (Lichtdrucken) auf Tafeln (9 doppelblattgroß und 5 doppelblattgroß zum Ausklappen), einschließlich der nicht im Inhaltsverzeichnis genannten Tafel:\"A World Centre\" zu Beginn des 1. Teils, mit 123 Heliogravüren (Lichtdrucken) im Text (9 ganzseitig), einschließlich der nicht im Inhaltsverzeichnis genannten von Athene, Apollo und Herakles, [6], xv, 128 (unpaginiert), 102 Seiten, 32x45, grünes illustriertes und goldgeprägtes O Ln, Schönes, im Einband frisches und festes unbeschnittenes Exemplar dieses seltenen und sehr gesuchten Titels, lediglich innen teilweise braunfleckig. Erste französische Ausgabe von Andersens Vision einer utopischen Weltstadt. FIRST FRENCH EDITION OF ANDERSEN\'S VISION OF A UTOPIAN WORLD CITY. Hendrik Christian Andersen (1872 - 1940) was a Norwegian-American sculptor, painter and urban planner. He was born in Bergen, Norway, and emigrated as an infant with his family to Newport, Rhode Island. As a young artist, he mingled among Newport\'s wealthy elite, and spent some time as Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney\'s art teacher. At the age of 21, Andersen travelled to Europe, eventually settling in Rome. There he pursued his artistic interest in monumental classically inspired pieces, believing that they stimulated in the viewer a desire for self-improvement. He devoted much of his time designing a perfect \'World City\', filled with art, which would motivate humanity to achieve a near Utopian state. His urban planning philosophy is evident in his 1913 \"A World Center of Communication\". This enormous tome (the text weighed over ten pounds) was written with Ernest Hébrard and grew out of Andersen’s earlier writing, \"The Fountain of Life\". Central to the work was Andersen’s belief that art, more specifically monumental Beaux-Arts architecture, could bring about world peace and international harmony. The plan called for the creation of a central world capital. In his words, the city would be \"a fountain of overflowing knowledge to be fed by the whole world of human endeavour in art, science, religion, commerce, industry, and law; and in turn to diffuse throughout the whole of humanity as though it were one grand, divine body conceived by God, the vital requirements which would renew its strength, protect its rights, and enable it to attain greater heights through a concentration of world effort.”Evident in the treatise is Andersen’s philosophy that art could change humanity and produce perfection. While roundly criticized by urban planners of the time for its political naïveté coupled with an over emphasis on the monumental, the work demonstrates an appreciation of the political and social conflicts necessitated by the rampant nationalism of the early 20th Century and sought to use art to bring about an Utopian world. Andersen’s view of the power of art and architecture to transform society can be seen as a precursor to similar concepts advanced later in the 20th Century by a variety of urban planners including Le Corbusier in his Contemporary City.In 1899 Andersen met Henry James the American expatriate writer. Although James was almost 30 years his senior the two developed a close relationship that was to last until James’ death in 1916. While the precise nature of the relationship is still unclear and may always be so—the two actually met on just a few occasions, and then for only brief periods of time—they exchanged numerous letters, which evidence a close, loving, homoerotic bond. Despite such affection, James lost patience with Andersen when the sculptor tried to interest him in the grandiose plans for the \"World City\". James warned Andersen that he was slipping into megalomania with his plans for the \"World City\". Andersen bequeathed his home, studio, papers and more than 400 pieces of his work to the Italian Government. The home in Rome has been renovated and now is the museum Museo Hendrik Christian Andersen located at Via Pasquale Stanislao Mancini, 20 (piazzale Flaminio).The book is in two parts. The first deals with the history of the city and monumental architecture, and seeks inspiration in classical and contemporary notions of city planning - Paris and Washington DC feature prominently. The second part details Andersen\'s imaginary urban landscape, complete with works of art, for the \'World City\'. Olympic stadia, galleries for the arts and sciences, as well as government buildings are all outlined, and placed upon a defined grid plan with an emphasis on a grand central avenue acting as the axis of the city.
