        L'acollade - Yegor.

      1920 - Aquarelle et encre de Chine, s.d. (1920), sur carton, 48 x 35.5 cm, titrée sous le dessin. Maurice de BECQUE (1878-1938), a surtout travaillé pour les éditions Georges Crès et Simon Kra. Aminalier reconnu, il illustre dans cette veine L'Appel de la forêt (London), Le Livre de la jungle (Kipling), Le Roman de Renart et de nombreux contes. Ses pochoirs sompteux ont été enluminés par le grand Saudé (Osterwalder, II, 90). Pendant la première guerre mondiale, Maurice de BECQUE fut interné en Allemagne dans un camp de représailles spécial pour soldats russes. Seul au milieu de 12.000 paysans ukrainiens il en profita pour apprendre leur dialecte et recueillir des histoires fabuleuses, qui forment le fond de son répertoire littéraire et graphique. En 1922, il publie un ouvrage recueillant ces légendes (Paris, Editions de l'Abeille d'Or, in-8, broché, couverture orange rempliée, 78 pp.). Le dessin représente deux seigneurs, vêtus à la russe, se donnant l'acollade dans un paysage de campagne féérique. Pliures et petites déchirures marginales. Livres

        Manuscript Diary of Opera Singer and Voice Teacher, Queena Marion Tillotson, a.k.a "Queena Mario," dated 1949

      Soft cover. Good. 12mo, 167 manuscript pages, written in pencil in a legible hand, bound in contemporary blue suede leather binding, spine tips chipped, covers and corners rubbed and slightly scuffed, inside hinges open, otherwise in good, clean and legible condition. A noted soprano of the 1920's and 1930's, and later a respected voice teacher, Queena Marion Tillotson was born on August 21, 1896 at Akron, Ohio. She was raised in New Jersey and studied with Polish soprano Marcella Sembrich prior to bowing with the San Carlo Opera Company in 1918. In the early 1920s she sang with baritone Antonio Scotti's touring Antonio Scotti Opera Company before making her debut with the Metropolitan Opera on November 30, 1922. Over her 345 performances at the venerable house her roles included Nedda in Leoncavallo's "I Pagliacci", Gilda from Giuseppe Verdi's "Rigoletto", Mimi in Puccini's "La Boheme", Sophie in Richard Strauss "Der Rosenvavalier", Micaela in Georges Bizet's "Carmen", and others. Queena was Gretel in Engelbert Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel" for the 1931 first-ever Saturday Metropolitan radio broadcast; on the West Coast she first appeared at San Francisco in 1923 as Mimi and in 1930 was the Child for the American premiere of Maurice Ravel's "L'Enfant et les Sortileges". After singing her final Metropolitan performance on December 26, 1938, she was a professor at New York's Juilliard School and Philadelphia's Curtis Institute while also earning praise under her real name as the author of opera-themed murder mysteries and, as 'Florence Bryant', of a newspaper column. A portion of her recorded legacy remains available. She married Wilfred Pelletier (1896-1982), a well-known conductor in 1925. Her marriage ended in divorce in 1936. Pelletier then married Queena's student, Rose Bampton (1907-2007) in 1937. Tillotson died on 28 May 1951 at New York City and was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery at Brooklyn, New York. The diary entries relate the events of a European trip taken by Tillotson in the summer of 1949. The diary mentions a number of famous people she spent time with while in Europe, one being the actor Gene Lockhart, June Lockhart's father and a number of well-known opera singers, including Giacomo Lauri Volpi (1892-1979). The diary includes a tipped in letter (1 page) from Volpi, written to Queena. While not dated, it was written to her and sent to her hotel on June 18th, 1949. Giovanni Martinelli (1885-1969) is another friend who she spends time with while in Italy. Martinelli was a celebrated Italian operatic tenor and enjoyed a long career at the Metropolitan Opera, and Tito Ruffo. The larger portion of her trip is in Italy, but the diary begins in Marseille (France) on June 11th. She spends much of her time in Italy, touring various cities, in particular Rome, Florence, and Venice. She also visited Naples, Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, Siena and other places. One of the more interesting entries is when she visits the Vatican and has an audience with the Pope, described in great detail. While in Europe she attends many operatic and theatre performances, usually dining and having drinks with the vocalists, whom she knows. She also mentions the after effects of WWII upon the cities and towns she visits. Her trip ends September 11th with one short paragraph about her travels home.

        Les Champs magnétiques

      Au Sans Pareil, Paris 1920 - EDITION ORIGINALE dédiée à la mémoire de Jacques Vaché. En double frontispice, portraits des auteurs par Francis Picabia. Tirage à 180 exemplaires numérotés. Un des 150 sur vergé d'Arches. --------->C'est Apollinaire qui présenta en juin 1917 Philippe Soupault à André Breton. En septembre de la même année, il rencontre cette fois Louis Aragon. Les trois jeunes hommes se retrouvent en parfaite communion d'esprit autour de Lautréamont et de ses CHANT DE MALDOROR, dont Soupault possédait un exemplaire qu'ils lisaient à haute voix. Durant l'été 1918, unis également par leur intérêt pour l'art contemporain, ils envisagent un livre en commun sur la peinture, projet abandonné un an plus tard au profit de la création de la revue Littérature dont la direction est confiée aux trois écrivains, et dont le premier numéro parait en mars 1919. C'est à cette période que tous s'adonnent à l'écriture automatique que Breton et Soupault utilisent en mai de l'année suivante pour écrire LES CHAMPS MAGNETIQUES. Le livre paraît en mai 1920 au Sans Pareil dont le directeur René Hilsum avait connu Breton au lycée Chaptal, et chez qui les auteurs avaient déjà publié un livre l'année précédente : ROSE DES VENTS de Soupault et MONT DE PIETE de Breton. En plus du tirage numéroté il existe des exemplaires ordinaires sur bouffant sans les portraits et portant la mention de deuxième édition. >> BEL EXEMPLAIRE [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Arabian Nights 16 Volume Set: A Plain and Literal Translation of the Arabian Nights' Entertainments, Now Entituled The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night, with the Supplementary Nights

      The Burton Ethnological Society / Burton Club, 1920. Near Fine/No Jacket. Complete in 16 volumes (10 + 6 supplements). A reissue of the scarce 1885 Kamashastra Society edition (which generally sells for $4000 - 8000), following the same cover design. Black cloth, gilt & silver titles and decorations. Top edge of ten main volumes gilt, supplements top-stained red. Burton's translation of The Arabian Nights remains the authoritative version of this extensive collection of stories, and also stands as a unique example of liberality in publishing during the Victorian era. Despite the salacious content of many of the narratives, the first printed English version remained true to Burton's precise and inclusive translation. Burton was somewhat of a trailblazer in this regard, also publishing an authoritative version of the now-famous Kama Sutra. THE ARABIAN NIGHTS: VOLUME 1: Introduction by Sir Richard F.

        "To Hold as 'Twere"

      Dundalk: Tempest Dundagan Press, 1920. Wraps. Good. 4to. 26 by 18.5 cm. Unpaginated, 20 leaves, with 17 being caricature plates, plus title with vignettes. Grace Plunkett, nee Gifford, was a well-known artist and caricaturist who married Joseph Plunkett, martyr of the Easter 1916 Uprising, hours before his execution. This 1920 collection includes a good number of caricatures of the Irish rebels and other notables, including de Valera, Lady Gregory, John MacCormick, Countess Markievicz, etc. The caricatures are sharp and merciless, and Plunkett was a rarity as a woman in the field of caricature at the time. Her sympathies were strongly for Sinn Fein and Irish independence, needless to say. The collection is uncommon in commerce. Heavy soiling of the cover. Moderate wear besides.

        Dessins originaux signés : opération de césarienne

      - 8 dessins [175 x 145 mm] sur France (Paris ), c. 1920, , 8 dessins [175 x 145 mm] sur 4 planches [250 x 370 mm]. Numérotés 1 à 10 (sans la planche qui contenait les dessins 3 et 4), fusain, encre noire et gouache blanche sur papier calque, Très bel ensemble provenant de la Clinique d'accouchements de la rue d'Assas (Clinique Tarnier). Les dessins, d'une remarquable exécution, décrivent les étapes d'une opération de césarienne extra-péritonéale depuis l'ouverture par incision transversale basse de la paroi abdominale jusqu'à la fermeture de l'utérus et la pose d'un drain composé de mèches. Ils sont signés "H. Frantz" : cet artiste fut un familier du monde médical et hospitalier ; dessinateur anatomique et chirurgical, il fournit plusieurs dessins pour la section anatomo-clinique du musée du Service de santé des armées, installé au Val-de-Grâce à Paris pendant la guerre 1914-1918. On le connait également au travers de ses caricatures de médecins et de chirurgiens, publiées dans la revue Chanteclair dans les années 1910-1920 : parmi les personnalités qu'il a portraituré avec malice, on rencontre les obstétriciens Paul Bar et Julien Potocki tous deux internes de Tarnier et accoucheurs de "l'école de la Maternité" des hôpitaux de Paris. La césarienne décrite ici était réalisée en cas d'infection du péritoine, pouvant notamment être causée par la macération du foetus mort, sans extériorisation de l'utérus : le geste consiste à isoler la cavité extra-péritonéale pour éviter la contamination, le péritoine étant décollé et séparé de la paroi utérine par le chirurgien, puis suturé au moyen d'aiguilles de reverdin, avant le procéder à l'incision de la partie inférieure de l'utérus (dessins n° 5 et 6). Le geste final (n° 9) est ici de réaliser une double suture de l'utérus en refermant l'incision dans un premier temps, puis en refermant l'ensemble en étirant, de chaque côté de la première couture, deux bourrelets d'utérus afin de réaliser une suture étanche. Le dessin n° 10 décrit la pose d'un drain, du type Mikulicz. Ce type de césarienne, qui oblige à revenir à l'incision transversale basse, fut étudié à Cologne par le docteur Fritz Frank en 1906 et 1907. Jusque dans les années 1920, en France, les accoucheurs sont restés sceptiques quant à la technique de la segmentaire basse sans extériorisation de l'utérus. On joint : un dessin non signé [250 x 175mm], encre et aquarelle sur papier fort : "Suture du ligament large au vagin". (Marque de trombone oxydé en marge). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
