Edmond Heuzé, pseudonyme d'Amédée Letrouvé (1884-1967), est un dessinateur, peintre, graveur et écrivain français. Pendant une trentaine d'années, Edmond Heuzé vivra de dix-sept petits métiers divers : Nénesse le fait entrer sous le pseudo de « Williams » comme danseur dans la troupe du Moulin Rouge avec La Goulue, ce qui lui permet de faire le tour du monde. Il devient également marchand, intermédiaire, camelot, régisseur de cirque ambulant, danseur de claquettes chez Maxim's, etc. C'est dans cette dernière profession qu'il aura l'occasion de peindre le monde du cirque à ses moments de loisirs. Il épouse Nina Bacquet, la directrice du cirque Médrano. Réformé en 1904, il s'engage comme volontaire en 1914. Avant la déclaration de la Première Guerre mondiale, il était conservateur de la collection d'émaux du grand-duc Nicolas Mikhaïlovitch de Russie. Il est incorporé au bout de six tentatives infructueuses comme gardien au magasin d'habillement du 22e régiment d'infanterie, comme André Utter, et s'en inspira pour une série de peintures intitulée Les Masques. En 1918, après divers métiers, il devient directeur de la Galerie Sagot, rue Laffitte, où il vend des toiles de ses amis Maurice Utrillo, Suzanne Valadon, Rouault, ainsi que les siennes. Les douze tableaux de la série Les Masques sont vendus durant les deux premiers jours. À cette époque Edmond Heuzé fut le témoin de mariage d'André Utter et Suzanne Valladon. Il conserva des liens étroits avec Maurice Utrillo, Jules Depaquit et Tiret-Bognet. Grâce à la générosité de Georges Chéron, marchand de tableaux, il peut recommencer à peindre. À partir de 1920, il expose à la galerie Bernheim-Jeune ainsi qu'à la galerie Chiron en 1923, et peut désormais vivre de son art qu'il consacre alors aux portraits, notamment dans le milieu du cirque. En 1938, il obtient le prix Paul-Guillaume pour le portrait du mime Farina. une feuille

        La Belle Au Bois Dormant

Perrault avec illustrations par Arthur Rackham. Paris: Librairie Hachette, [1920]. French Limited Edition DeLuxe. One of 400 copies signed by Arthur Rackham (of which this is #124).Large quarto (11 5/16 x 8 13/16 inches; 288 x 223 mm.). 98, [2, blank] pp. With an additional color silhouette drawing not found in the trade edition. Color frontispiece mounted on white paper with decorative border, three double-page silhouette drawings with color, two full-page silhouette drawings with color, eight single-page silhouette drawings in black and white and forty-one silhouette drawings in the text.Publisher's cream parchment over boards, front cover decoratively stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, pictorial end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Spine darkened, extremities of binding a little rubbed but overall an excellent copy."The immediate aftermath of the war brought Some British Ballads (1919), and the two volumes of Cinderella (1919) and The Sleeping Beauty (1920), retold by C.S. Evans, in which his gift for silhouette was given full play?" (Derek Hudson. Arthur Rackham. His Life and Work, p. 108)."Rackham gave his talk to on Silhouettes to the Art Workers' Guild in November 1919, the month in which Cinderella, the first of his two great silhouette books, was published. Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty differed from Rackhams' preceding books in relying almost wholly for their effect on silhouette. It is immediately clear that Rackham is a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humour by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going. Silhouette books, even with additional colours had lower production costs than their colour plate equivalents, and so were an attractive option both for publishers and customers in the uncertain post-war market." (James Hamilton. Arthur Rackham, A Biography, p. 188).Riall, p. 142 (mentioning only the 1/1200 unsigned copies); Latimore and Haskell, pp. 51/52 (mentioning only the trade edition).

        THE RESCUE

      1920. A Romance of the Shallows. Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1920. Original blue cloth decorated in gilt, with dust jacket. First Edition, published a month before Dent's London edition.~THE RESCUE was Conrad's albatross, the book which hung about his neck from the beginning of his writing career until almost the end of his life. It was begun in 1896 [as THE RESCUER] as an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of Lingard... But the book just would not sort itself out and it took Conrad another twenty years, working on it sporadically, before the much laboured over manuscript was finally completed 25 May 1919. [Cagle]~This copy is from the first printing (gathered in 8s -- the second printing is virtually identical but is gathered in 16s). Included is the very scarce dust jacket, unusual for the DP&Co Conrad books in that it is pictorial; it too is in the first state, with the $1.90 price on the front turn-in increased to $2.00 with an over-stamp. This is a fine, bright copy; the jacket is near-fine with minor wear at the foot of its spine (affecting the letter "P"). In our experience this jacket is scarcer than several earlier American Conrad jackets; it is also much scarcer than Dent's edition's jacket. Cagle A49a.

      Paris: Russkoe knigoizdatel'stvo "Sever" 1920 - Small quartos (27 x 18 cm). Staple-stitched pictorial wrappers; 33, [7] and 43, [5] pp. Illustrations and advertisements. Wrappers dust-soiled; corners chipped; one issue with tears to spine extremities; text evenly toned and brittle; subscription form in very good condition. Two (of eight) issues of this Russian emigre children's journal of poetry, short stories, and fairy tales, published by in Paris and printed by the Zemgor, a Russian relief association re-established in Paris in 1920 with the aim of providing aid for Russian refugees, especially children. The journal published the works of some of the best Russian writers active in the emigration, such as Konstantin Balmont, Ivan Bunin, Aleksandr Kuprin, and Sasha Chernyi. Among its illustrators were Sergei Sudeikin, Georgii Lukomskii, and Nikolai Remizov (Re-Mi), though the cover illustration appears to be unattributed. These two issues contain contributions by Ivan Bunin, Aleksei Kuprin, Nikolai Rubakin, M. Pervukhin, A. Drozdov, M. Struve, and Count A. Tolstoy, an obituary of Leonid Andreev, as well as numerous illustrations. The journal's name, which means “the green stick,” derives from a story Tolstoy was told as a child, according to which a magical green stick with an inscription was buried on the family's estate; were it to be found, it would destroy evil and bring happiness to mankind. Evidently, only eight issues were published of this bi-weekly journal (October 1920-January 1921). KVK, OCLC show scattered holdings at Amherst, McGill, NYPL, UNC Chapel Hill, Stanford and Utah.

        African-American Soldier's Handwritten Mexican Border Journal: Diary of a Crute Buglar in the Army

      Camp Furlong (Columbus), New Mexico, 1920. Stiff wraps. Good to Very Good. Approximately 4" x 5.5". Original paper wrapper with hand-drawn/colored portrait on front. 140 un-numbered pages including a "dictionary" of army slang at the rear. Original art (a second self-portrait) frontispiece and six other hand-drawn illustrations (centipede, road runner, Zuni Indian, other soldiers) in the text. Five additional drawings (other soldiers), four clipped newspaper photographs, and a postally used YMCA envelope front (Camp Furlong return address and Columbus, New Mexico postmark) are laid in. Generally clean pages; legible handwriting. Rear cover missing. Worn, soiled, and faded front cover has been neatly reattached. The laid in items show some wear. This amazing journal was kept by an African-American "crute" (recruit) bugler assigned to one of the famous Buffalo Soldier units of the U. S. Army, the 24th Infantry Regiment, at the tail-end of the hostilities along the Mexican border. Although Lance Corporal Price was an entertaining writer and engaging illustrator, except for his bugling and marksmanship, he was an abysmal soldier. Price was, by his own account, a drunken, violent, thief who spent the majority of his time avoiding work, womanizing, assaulting others, and smuggling alcohol from Mexico. The diary is exceptionally entertaining and a fascinating documentation of enlisted life in an African-American infantry unit guarding the Mexican border. Some of the highlights include: "Arrived at Columbus. . . . Time is eleven thirty P.M. . . . Went to camp was given two blankets and sent to an empty barracks to sleep on soft side of board. killed centipede five inches long. . . . Had breakfast . . . rice garnished with cactus thorns, gravy mixed with lumps of flour as large as dice. Coffee with sand instead of sugar. Bread filled with bugs. was hungry and ate everything with relish and got seconds. * Stole black necktie went up town was ordered back by M.P. went to library to write diary. . . . Learned how to skip drill by putting on fatigue clothes and going up town on water wagon. . . . Told Sgt. C. I was a prize fighter and he told me to start training at once. I won't have any drill. * Everything is sand and mesquite bushes, cactis and adobe huts. The sun shines ten hours a day and no rain. Wild life is beautiful. Jack rabbits, quail, grouse, road runners, rattlesnakes fer de lances, horned toads, scorpions and gila monsters. . . . lance corporals and 2nd Lieuts are also classed with the lowest of the animal class. * The town is pretty place with everything adobe and frame building and nearly every building is full of bullet holes where Villa raided town in 1916. . . . Visited the Green top house where Villa's raiders killed fifteen people . . . found three bullet to fit Mauser rifle and broken knife blade went in room where women were killed and slept until supper time. . . . * Told Corporal Vest I wanted to be a bugler he said he would try me out and after I blew twenty calls he said I should report to 1st Sgt. Robinson of B. Co. who sent me to Sr. Bugler Sam Smalls . . . I will be sitting on top of the world. * I am now in guard house for hitting a man with pistol, showing insubordination towards an officer. . . .solitary confinement. . . . a beautiful place here underground . . . is cool and nice . . . Smalls slipped me a carton of dopes, candles, books, and matches so . . . I am having a nice time. . . . . Went out on detail with prisoners guarded by Emma Gee (machine gunner) who has a record of shooting two men . . . he carries a riot gun and pistol. . . . Met Colonel French this morning. had an interview with him in my office (cell No. 2) and he told Provost Marshall to release me as buglers were scarce and B Co. needed me. * Had fight with Tony Rose got a nice beating. Am going to fight him some other time. . . . Am studying Espanole. Am getting along fine. Can ask for things and curse. . . . I can beat the world. . . . Went to the Western Front Caberet and talked to Madam Leon she wanted to sell me a quart of Pulque, but I wouldn't pay twelve bucks for it. So when she left I stole it. [Bought] 15 cartons of dopes (cigarettes), five pounds of tobacco, nine pipes, and ten pounds of chocolate candy costing me twenty-four dollars and seventy cents. . . . Sold junk and cleared seventeen dollars for my self and ten dollars for the pulque. * Was sent to Carlsbad to bring back prisoners. . . . eight guards escorted sixteen prisoners. All Mexicans from Villa's detachment. . . . All hardboiled I wish one would run so I could knock him off. I hate Mexican men and love their women. * I am half drunk all the time. . . . We can get it right over the line anything Jose Cuervo, Tequila, mescal, pulque, gin, San Miguel, Aguardiente and Canadian Club. I drink Jose (Hosy) and Tequila most of the time. . . . A woman uptown I wanted to raise H-l up there in her house and she called me a name I didn't like so I pinged her on her head with a quart bottle and Sgt. P. hit me with his pistol and I went out for the count. Came to . . . and stole her quart of Jose Cuervo and nine bucks. * C.O. searched my locker and found my six quarts of liquour and confiscated it. Now I must find a way to steal it back. I still have a pint of lemon extract to get drunk with. . . . Stole my liquor back and more besides. . . . Had a fight today with Jose O Jesus a Porto Rican. He pulled a knife on me and I used my pistol on his head. . . . I may get charged again. . . . 1Sgt R--- is trying to find out where I get my liquor. . . . If he knew I was getting it from his wife I guess he would see if I was bulletproof. She buys it from some Mexican and gives it to me. I stand in good. * They started what they call w Death Patrole a mounted detail who shoot first and halt you afterwards. They are trying to break up smuggling over the line. If they do that how am I going to live, why I supply half the town with silk and satin and I even flooded the recruits with Mexican money for good U. S. dinero. what will I do oh my. . . .Must go over the line tonight . . . to trade for liquor. I have enough for ten gallons of tequila. I must make three trips and each one a different way to a different cache. . . . If I can keep from drinking I'll get there alright. * Am going to call on Senorita Delores . . . a new one who just came over the lines last night. She has no passport but I signed a paper. . . . I got a chance to make good with her. I think she is a "Snow Bird" (dope fiend) she looks it and acts it. If she is I will make her pay me to keep quiet. . . . That damned Mexican girls is a hop head she smokes Marijuana and some other dope. refused to pay me . . . I can't snitch on anyone but if I find her selling to any jokers in my Co. or Regiment up she goes. . . . * Just to think I have been here two months and know the ropes already. . . . I can steal better than Fagan and lie. * Been out on patrol with Denton. Haven't sighted the enemy yet. They gave us some pigeons to carry messages back to P.C. but we had a nice pigeon roast. Denton cooks a nice meal pigeon stuffed with acorns and cactus shoots. * Drunk as usual today. Just got sober go on guard at 4:30 this P. M. . . . . I am going to get drunk for meanness today. . . . Top kick gave me a good talking but I don't know what it was because I was all doped up from smoking marijuana. . . . A boy got shot in guard house this evening some joker thought his rifle was empty and pulled th trigger. . . . I have felt bad every since. * Was busted today I am now just plain Bugler Edward C. Price. The charges against me are D.D.D. (drunk, dirty, and disorderly), bringing women in camp after night, resisting officers and trying to drive truck. Never again. I am off Jose Cuervo it makes you crazy I am going to stick to tequila and mescal it just makes you drunk. . . . War Horse read the 92nd article of war and gave me hell and my stripes back again. * Smuggled some junk over the line today. I had short armed inspection (penis check for venereal disease). This morning I stole a bottle of Bay Rum and am going to get drunk off it. . . . Am sick again today I think the Bay Rum and Lilac de France made me sick. I shall drink red ink from now on. . . . Just found out our marching compasses are filled with alcohol. Am going to open one up and drink the contents. . . . Just sold my six wrist watches to some Yaqui Indians. * Everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving. . . . The cookie has nearly three hundred pies made and my gang has planned to rob him tonight. . . . Raided mess hall and got forty four pies we are sitting pretty now. . . . Company was lined up this morning and finger prints taken. . . . I left no fingerprints because I had on rubber gloves. * Thanksgiving. No drill, nothing to do but eat, sleep drink???? and take it easy. . . . I guess this will be my last entry . . . because a girl has asked me to send it to her to read so I am going to put an Army dictionary in the back. I hope the one who reads it enjoys theirselves as much as I did while writing it and also the pictures that I have tried to draw." Exceptionally scarce. Other well-written, self-illustrated journals from Buffalo Soldiers protecting the Mexican Border simply do not exist. None in the trade. No auction results at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub, and no institutional holdings per OCLC.

        Le côte de Guermantes

      Nrf, 1920. - Nrf, Paris 1920, 14x19,5cm, broché sous étui. - Edizione su carta corrente, falso ingresso di terza edizione. autografo prezioso firmato da Marcel Proust a André Salmon. Due perdite minori sul retro che hanno anche piccola e sapiente restauro. Doppio giunto scorrevole errata. Nelle sue "Memorie senza fine" Salmon racconta le circostanze della "incontro" tra due improbabile mondo letterario che hanno poco strofinato le spalle, il bohemien Montparnos e salotti aristocratici frequentato da Proust: "se non sapevo Proust, noi colui che è venuto da me nel modo più squisito correspondu.C'est e anche il meno attendue.Je aveva appena dato alla nuova revisione francese (marzo 1920) una favola realistica: "il manichino di mogano" qualcosa che non avrei mai sospettato che potesse sedurre l'osservatore, il feroce adoratore, sì soggiogato e sprezzante della duchessa di Guermantes, Oriane, creatura odiosa degno di esposizione al pubblico. (...) Marcel Proust m ' subito ha scritto subito dopo la lettura di mogano modello. sarebbe anche fornire me con i libri, con dediche di pregio. probabilmente ho detto a Marcel Proust. non l'ho visitato. corrispondere con lui fosse stato per me. io non riuscivo ad andare al capezzale (...) e, in particolare, a sedersi tra i tanti i cui piaceri erano mai il mio. Naturalmente non si tratta di andare a unirsi a Marcel Proust a mezzanotte al Ritz dove sono poco conosciuti personnel.Ai mi sbaglio? in ogni caso, Marcel Proust non ha rancore mi ha tenuto. Avrebbe potuto frainteso, indovinato. Egli non solo mi ha scritto di nuovo, ma ha scritto per gli altri con l'intento di usarla. "Infatti, a seguito della pubblicazione di questo nuovo Proust ha suggerito il nome di Salmon River con quello per l'ottenimento di due borse di studio Blumenthal, purtroppo salmone aveva già raggiunto il limite di età ed è stato Andrea che ha vinto il secondo Thérive . Andre supporto Salmon borsa di studio non imparare questo fino al 1951 quando ho letto nella Revue de Paris di lettere inedite di Proust a E. Jealous: "stacco che, come il mio scopo è stato così gentile da scrivere da brividi febbre (...): "la tua conclusione sembra essere di salmone, che è anche quella che avevo smesso con Gide credo che la ragione abbiamo sostenuto (il prezzo permetterà di fare. fare giornalismo) è molto cattivo. Ma il talento è una ragione sufficiente. (...) ". (Cfr A. Salmon, Ricordi senza fine, p. 807 - 809) La nostra copia viene presentato in un caso pieno marocco nero, liscio indietro, velluto kaki rivestimenti in pelle di agnello, il tutto firmato T. Boichot. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale sur papier courant, fausse mention de troisième édition. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust à André Salmon. Deux petits manques sur le dos qui comportent également de petites et habiles restaurations. Double feuillet d'errata joint. Dans ses "Souvenirs sans fin", Salmon relate les circonstances de cette "rencontre" improbable entre deux univers littéraires qui se sont peu côtoyés, la bohème des Montparnos et les salons aristocratiques que fréquentait Proust :"Si je n'ai pas connu Proust, nous avons correspondu.C'est lui qui vint à moi, de la façon la plus exquise et aussi la moins attendue.Je venais de donner à la Nouvelle Revue Française (mars 1920) une fable réaliste: "Le Mannequin d'acajou", quelque chose dont je n'aurais jamais soupçonné que cela pût séduire l'observateur, le féroce adorateur, oui subjugué et méprisant, de la duchesse de Guermantes, Oriane, haïssable créature digne de l'exposition publique. (...) Marcel Proust m'écrivit dès aussitôt sa lecture de Mannequin d'acajou. Il m'offrirait aussi de ses livres, avec de précieuses dédicaces. Sans doute ai - je répondu à Marcel Proust. Je ne lui ai pas rendu visite. Correspondre avec lui comptait pour moi. Je n'ai pu me résoudre à me rendre à son chevet (...) et, surtout, à m'asseoir parmi tant d'autres dont les délectations ne furent jamais les miennes. Bien entendu pas question d'aller joindre Marcel Proust à minuit, au Ritz où je suis peu connu du personnel.Ai - je eu tort? en tout cas, Marcel Proust ne m'en garda pas rancune. Il put m'avoir bien compris, deviné. Non seulement il m'écrivit encore, mais il écrivit à d'autres dans l'intention de me servir. "En effet, à la suite de la publication de cette nouvelle Proust proposa le nom de Salmon avec celui de Rivière pour l'obtention des deux bourses Blumenthal, malheureusement Salmon avait déja atteint l'age limite et ce fut André Thérive qui obtint la seconde bourse. André Salmon n'apprendra ce soutien qu'en 1951 en lisant dans la Revue de Paris des lettres inédites de Proust à E. Jaloux: "Je détache celle qu'à mon propos il eut la gentillesse d'écrire, en grelottant de fièvre (...):"Votre conclusion semble donc être Salmon, ce qui est d'ailleurs celle à laquelle je m'étais arrêté avec Gide. Je trouve que la raison qu'on a fait valoir (le prix lui permettra de ne pas faire de journalisme) est très mauvaise. Mais le talent est une raison suffisante. (...) ". (Cf. A. Salmon, Souvenirs sans fin, p. 807 - 809)  Notre exemplaire est présenté dans un coffret en plein maroquin noir, dos lisse, doublures d'agneau velours kaki, ensemble signé Goy & Vilaine.

        African-American Soldier's Handwritten Mexican Border Journal: Diary of a Crute Buglar in the Army

      Camp Furlong (Columbus), New Mexico, 1920. Stiff wraps. Good to Very Good. Approximately 4" x 5.5". Original paper wrapper with hand-drawn/colored portrait on front. 140 un-numbered pages including a "dictionary" of army slang at the rear. Original art (a second self-portrait) frontispiece and six other hand-drawn illustrations (centipede, road runner, Zuni Indian, other soldiers) in the text. Five additional drawings (other soldiers), four clipped newspaper photographs, and a postally used YMCA envelope front (Camp Furlong return address and Columbus, New Mexico postmark) are laid in. Generally clean pages; legible handwriting. Rear cover missing. Worn, soiled, and faded front cover has been neatly reattached. The laid in items show some wear. This amazing journal was kept by an African-American "crute" (recruit) bugler assigned to one of the famous Buffalo Soldier units of the U. S. Army, the 24th Infantry Regiment, at the tail-end of the hostilities along the Mexican border. Although Lance Corporal Price was an entertaining writer and engaging illustrator, except for his bugling and marksmanship, he was an abysmal soldier. Price was, by his own account, a drunken, violent, thief who spent the majority of his time avoiding work, womanizing, assaulting others, and smuggling alcohol from Mexico. The diary is exceptionally entertaining and a fascinating documentation of enlisted life in an African-American infantry unit guarding the Mexican border.

Es ist tatsächlich fast jeder Tag durch einen Vortrag besetzt, und an den 4 Tagen, die ich frei habe, muss meine Familie bei der größten Bescheidenheit schließlich doch ihre Ansprüche stellen. Es ist recht schade, läßt sich aber nicht ändern [ ]". - Gelocht. - Lettow-Vorbeck war 1900/01 an der Niederwerfung des Boxeraufstandes in China beteiligt, kämpfte von 1904-07 als Hauptmann gegen die Hereros und Hottentotten in Deutsch-Südwestafrika und wurde 1913 Kommandeur der Schutztruppe in Deutsch-Ostafrika.

        Lettera autografa inviata da Giacomo Puccini all'amico Carlo Clausetti, datata 4 dicembre 1920.

      - Lettera autografa ad inchiostro in formato cm.17,5x13,2, compilata solo alla prima e alla quarta facciata rispettivamente su 10 e 4 righe. Nella missiva Puccini comunica all'amico, affettuosamente chiamato "Claudio", che "accludo foglio firmato, attendo fogli Manon e Butt[erfly]: spero arrivino prima di martedì perché parto per Orbetello". Seguono al verso i saluti di rito. Classica grafia del Maestro, con buona firma "G.Puccini". Allegata busta affrancata e viaggiata, con indirizzo del destinatario a Milano, presso la sede di Casa Ricordi in Via Berchet, 2. Carlo Clausetti (Napoli, 1869-1943), anch'egli compositore, ereditò dal padre la direzione della succursale napoletana di Casa Ricordi, per poi divenirne direttore artistico nel 1912 e gerente nel 1919 assieme a Renzo Valcarenghi, incarico da lui tenuto fino al 1940. Fu lui a trattare per conto di Puccini l'acquisto di un pianoforte a gran coda "Steinway", celebre marca di cui era rappresentante per l'Italia, un pianoforte su cui Puccini compose gran parte della sua ultima opera incompiuta, "Turandot". Il cimelio è oggi conservato presso la casa natale del musicista a Lucca. E' possibile che la lettera sia in riferimento ad una esecuzione di "Madama Butterfly" del 9 dicembre 1920 al Teatro Carcano. 50 gr.
