        Dessins sur les danses de Vaslav Nijinsky par George Barbier Glose de Francis de Miomandre

      Paris La belle edition 1913. Large quarto. Original publisher's pictorial wrappers, the upper with a hand-coloured design by Barbier. 5ff. + 12 full-page plates of Nijinsky in pochoir. Wrappers worn, soiled, and partially split at spine. Some minor soiling and wear internally. Lacking title. Plates in very good condition.. First French edition, limited to 390 copies. Rare. Not in Beaumont, Magriel, Derra de Moroda or Leslie. Catalogue de la Donation Gilberte Cournaud p. 90. The English edition published by Beaumont in the same year is much more common than this edition. "In his brief time, Nijinsky was the most famous male dancer in the world, a preeminence due in part to his extraordinary virtuosity... But it was not his virtuosity alone that made him such a powerful stage presence. As contemporary reports make clear, Nijinsky was a great and unusual actor. The ideal Fokine interpreter, he was able to expand a simple choreographic design into a rich dramatic portrait, using, in keeping with Fokine's dicta, the whole body as an expressive instrument... Nijinsky's influence as a dancer was immediate and huge. That ballet, nearly extinguished artistically in western Europe, was revived in this century is due to him and other great dancers of his generation, such as Anna Pavlova and Karsavina, as well as to Diaghilev. That male ballet, utterly extinguished, was also revived is due to him preeminently. Nijinsky was the first real ballet star of the male sex that Europe had seen since the retirement of Auguste Vestris nearly a century earlier. He initiated a renaissance." Cohen: The International Encyclopedia of Dance Vol. 4, pp. 646-648. George Barbier, one of the greatest French illustrators of the early 20th century, was a pioneering force in the world of Art Deco and a prolific designer for numerous theatrical productions, including those of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. He was particularly taken with Nijinsky and executed the present highly evocative drawings in homage to this unrivaled icon of the Russian Ballet. From the collection of the noted Swiss dancer and choreographer Alain Bernard (1932-2012), with his distinctive bookplate to verso of upper wrapper and with three sheets of [?Bernard's] pencil designs, possibly ideas for ballets, laid in.

        Wings and the Child; or The Building of Magic Cities

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913., 1913. FIRST EDITION. Extremely scarce in dustwrapper. Publisher's pictorial green cloth with bright gilt titles to faded spine, lightly rubbed, a little spotting to top edge, in its illustrated dustwrapper, with one small chip to spine top. Illustrated with pictures by George Barraud and from photographs. Edith Nesbit (1858 - 1924), English novelist and short story writer, famous for her Ghost stories, Gothic tales, mysteries, and above all, her classic children's books, who was credited with having invented the children's adventure story. A mischievous, tomboyish child who grew up to be an unconventional adult, E Nesbit (she always used the plain initial to hide her gender) wrote for children after years of successful writing for adult magazines. She was asked to write about her childhood but instead of facts chose to describe her happy girlhood in fiction. Her first great success was The Story of the Treasure-Seekers (1899), followed by Five Children and It (1902), The New Treasure Seekers (1904), The Phoenix and The Carpet (1904), The Story of the Amulet (1906) The Enchanted Castle (1907), The House of Arden (1908) and The Magic City (1910). Her most celebrated story remains The Railway Children (1906), and many of her works have been successfully filmed, and many of her stories have been bestsellers for decades and continue to be enjoyed today.

        Nine nice original letters to the Massachusetts Senator Clarence W. Hobbs, Jr

      , 1913-1919 1913-1919. Several of the letters are browned at the extremities but the majority are very well preserved. . The first is dated Nov 21, 1913, and the last is dated July 7, 1918 [three are undated]. All are 8-1/2 x 11. The first letter "Your letter of November 13th has just reached me here, although I asked them to send my mail right up from the Adams House. Perhaps you may have thought it strange I did not reply to it" is somewhat browned and chipped at the top and right hand side [with some loss, although not affecting the text]. The second [39 words] and third [71 words] are from 1914. The fourth is from 1918 [112 words]. The fifth [170 words] and sixth [271] are from 1919. The seventh [72 words], eighth [24 words], and ninth [65 words], are undated but presumably the seventh and eighth are from 1914 or so as they are on Massachusetts Senate stationery and the ninth is presumably from 1918 as it is on Lieutenant Governor stationery.
