A fine, beautifully characteristic piece in excellent condition with a couple of faint spots in the yellow sky. An original watercolour for In Powder and Crinoline, signed and dated "Kay Nielsen [19]13" in the lower left corner. "Nielsen shows in his development a fancy so delicate and an outlook so original that no charge of plagiarism can be brought against him. His colour work is delicate and suggestive rather than forceful. Very lovely in its faint blues and greens with tones of peach is the illustration plate 21 [i.e. this painting] where the high folly, the love birds and the blossom testify to the legacy of Japan." (Keith Nicholson, Kay Nielsen, 1975). Nielsen produced 26 watercolours for In Powder and Crinoline to illustrate seven fairy tales chosen by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch. This watercolour illustrates the story, "Felicia or The Pot of Pinks".

        La Céramique dans l’Art Musulman. (TWO VOLUMES).

      Morance, Paris 1913 - 100 mounted colour plates, tipped-in colour illustrations, loose as issued in original pictorial cloth folders with ties, printed in grey, brown and yellow, half-title to vol.1 lightly browned, Uncut, vol.1 with additional printed wrapper inside folder, Preface by Gaston Migeon, very slightly browned but a very good set. Limited Edition of 200 copies of which this copy is number 124. Henri Benjamin Jean-Pierre Rivière (1864- 1951), French artist and designer best known for his creation of a form of shadow play at the Chat Noir cabaret, and for his postimpressionist illustrations of Breton landscapes and the Eiffel Tower. Henri Rivière is remembered as one of the foremost proponents of Japonisme, the French fascination with all things Japanese at the close of the 19th century. Inspired by the possibilities of lithography to render rich, atmospheric images in full colour, he enlisted Eugène Verneau in 1897 to assist him in producing the most ambitious project in colour printmaking Europe had seen to date. Through this collaboration with Verneau, Rivière was able to translate his panoramic Japonist landscapes of Paris and Brittany into over sixty monumental colour lithographs involving the execution and registration of dozens of limestone (often larger than 30 x 40 inches.) This work is a monumental achievement by Rivière on the Islamic ceramics. Creswell 736. [31320] Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Love Poems and Others.

      London: Duckworth and Co.,, 1913. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, top edge gilt. Very slight rubbing to ends and corners, sound, smart and internally fresh, a really excellent copy. First edition, first impression, of Lawrence's first book of verse, his third overall. This copy has a compelling provenance, with the bookseller's ticket, to the rear endpapers, of the Sunwise Turn Bookshop, a key location at the heart of the New York avant-garde. Founded by Mary Mowbray-Clarke and Madge Jenison in 1916, it sold books, art, textiles, and sculpture, published small editions, and hosted readings and other literary events until its closure in 1927. Jenison published an account of the shop at the height of its success, Sunwise Turn: A Human Comedy of Bookselling (New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, 1923). A contemporary observer said, "They did everything: James Joyce, Peruvian fabrics, color-influenced studies, Gurdjieff, handwriting analysis". Harold Loeb and his wife, Marjorie Content, owned a part interest in the shop, and through them their young cousin Peggy Guggenheim got a job there as a clerk in the second-floor offices, running errands and covering for the booksellers in their lunch breaks.

        Indian Album compiled by W. E. Condon. Photos and Exhibition Catalogs. [our title]

      n.p., 1913. Hardcover. Poor. 10 high quality large commercial photos and a couple of smaller ones. Various dates but generally 1913-1936. Photos pasted down and general approximately 29 x 22cm. Three exhibitions catalogs and various newspaper clippings, awards, etc. relating to the exhibition of Condon's watercolor paintings or amateur theatricals in which he or his wife performed. This is quite interesting but also incomplete with only the worn front cover and 12 detached album leaves present. Photos, catalogs and other paper items generally sound and reasonably clean. Condon, a career British soldier serving here in India, is identified variously as Lieutenant or Captain. He appears to have also been a talented painter specializing in water color views of the Himalayas and other Indian subjects. He and his wife also appear to have acted and sung in various amateur productions. He has titled this album: "Photographs, Programmes, Cuttings & Curiosities" which reflects its odd organization and catch-all quality. Nonetheless, what is here is oddly interesting: (1) the 10 photos include 2 group shots taken at the Newar Chapelle Celebrations 1926, an unidentified photo, two group photos taken at the wedding of Capt. J. Dick Lander and Phyllis Iggalden in Lucknow in 1913, 3 large photos of the exterior of a large house identified as "Judge's House" Bareilly 1914, a photo of an English couple and 21 Indians captioned on the page as "Servants Bareilly 1914 (perhaps at the judge's house), a group photo of an unidentified British colonial wedding party, and a photo identified as " The Competing Team of the Navy Army and R.A.F in the Interservices Lawn Tennis Championship 1925; (2) Page identified as Original Register of Duck[s] Shot at Ekope Jheel Manipur 1913, identifying the number -- their three day total was 403 -- of ducks shot by each of the five hunters by day and type, including one Eastern whiteye and 1 Baikal, and a small mounted photo of 4 of the hunters; (3) three fine arts exhibition catalogs (Mussoorie for 1913 and 1914 and Naini Tal for 1913; (4) a few newspaper clippings, prize and commendation certificates, and a letter providing an accounting for the sale of six of Condon's pictures in Mussoorie in 1914.

        A Turkish Woman's European Impressions

      London: Seeley, Service & Co, 1913. First edition of this collection of letters by a well-educated Ottoman woman who fled Istanbul for Paris in 1906 to escape an arranged marriage: "the marriage of a Turkish woman is an intensely interesting subject to anyone but a Turkish woman." Born Hadidje Zennour, the author adopted the name Zeyneb Hanoum after the success of Orientalist novelist Pierre Loti's 1906 Les Désenchantées, a lightly fictionalized account of her story. Although Hanoum discovered that the European view of Turkish women was not nearly as progressive as she had hoped, her outsider status lends an incisive, satirical edge to her observations about European culture in the the years before WWI. Her letters cover topics ranging from harems to bullfights to suffragettes. "I was invited to tea at the House of Commons, and to be invited to tea there of all places seemed very strange to me. Is the drinking of tea of such vital importance that the English can never do without it? I wonder if the Turks, now their Parliament is opened, will drink coffee with ladies instead of attending to the laws of the nation!" An exceptional copy, in the very scarce dust jacket. Octavo, original red cloth lettered in gilt, image of the veiled author stamped in gilt to front board, original unclipped pictorial dust jacket, printed paper label with early reviews pasted to lower front panel of jacket, top edge stained red, other edges uncut. Frontispiece portrait, 32 photographic illustrations throughout text, including a portrait of Hanoum drawn by Auguste Rodin. Calligraphic ownership inscription and Sotheran booksellers' ticket to front pastedown. Tiny chips to jacket spine ends.
