        GAZETTE DU BON TON. ARTS, MODES & FRIVOLITÉS

      Paris: Aux Editions Lucien Vogel, 1920. n. Hardcover. A Treasure Trove of Parisian Fashion Plates from the 1920s. 248 x 197 mm (9 3/4 x 7 3/4"). Six volumes, containing all issues for the years 1920, 1921, and 1922. Dark blue sharkskin over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt titling, marbled endleaves. Profusely illustrated with color illustrations in the text and in advertisements (many full-page) and WITH 234 (of 236) POCHOIR ART DECO FASHION PLATES BY GEORGE BARBIER, ANDRÉ MARTY, and others, SOME HEIGHTENED WITH SILVER OR GOLD (lacking plates 68 and 70 from the 1921 volume). Spines sunned to dark brown, joints and extremities a little rubbed, two leaves coming loose, isolated minor offsetting, but a pleasing copy and certainly a fine set internally--clean and fresh, with vivid coloring. These issues of a luxury women's magazine feature fashion illustrations from the zenith of the Art Deco period, with the designs of the great couturiers Paul Poiret, Jeanne Lanvin, Worth, Georges Doeuillet, and Madeleine Vionnet depicted by leading artists, including George Barbier, André Marty, Charles Marin, Pierre Brissard, Siméon, and Benito. With a title that translates to "Journal of Good Taste" and a subscription price that equalled $425 per year in today's money, Lucien Vogel's "Gazette du Bon Ton" was geared toward the elite women who wore custom-fitted designer clothes, changed dresses four or five times a day, vacationed in exotic locales, and regularly attended glittering balls. This elegant femme du monde is portrayed by the illustrators in dramatic vignettes displaying glorious couture. In addition to the fashion plates, there are articles on such timeless women's magazine topics as hair styles, flirting, and prime honeymoon locales, as well as reviews of music and art. The "Gazette" was founded by publisher Lucien Vogel in 1912 as a luxury magazine, printed on heavy stock with copious richly colored illustrations. Publication was suspended in 1915, due to World War I, and resumed in 1920, continuing through 1925. Copies most frequently turn up in the marketplace for single or part years, and they are very frequently in lamentable condition.

        IL DECAMERON

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1920. ONE OF 80 PAPER COPIES for sale (of 105 printed), along with six copies on vellum n. Hardcover. 419 x 292 mm (16 1/2 x 11 1/2"). xi, [i], 360 pp. ONE OF 80 PAPER COPIES for sale (of 105 printed), along with six copies on vellum. Original linen-backed blue paper boards, printed paper label on spine. Fine printed initials in red and blue designed by Graily Hewitt for this edition. Text printed in black, red, and blue. Front pastedown with bookplate of William Henry Smith, 3rd Viscount Hambleden (1903-48). Hornby 29; Franklin, p. 239 (noting 10 copies on vellum). Covers with a number of superficial marks and a handful of small abrasions (two more prominent), faint fading along two edges of each board, but a surprisingly solid copy, with only trivial wear to corners, and internally pristine. More than seven years in production (owing partly to World War I), the present elegant "Decameron," like other large format Ashendene books, is sumptuous without being self-consciously grandiose. With one of the smallest press runs among the later Ashendene books, it is printed entirely in Italian, including even the colophon (a fact that did not prevent a copy from being destroyed in 1927 by the U.S. Post Office in Kansas on account of its "immoral" content). Among the most celebrated and influential works of the period, the "Decameron" features stories of love, chivalry, and roguery that give us an inimitable picture of 14th century Italian society. The final story, that of Patient Griselda, was retold in Latin by Petrarch and in English by Chaucer, while the tale of the woman healer Juliet of Narbonne was adapted by Shakespeare in "All's Well that Ends Well." Son of a Florentine merchant, Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-75) wrote widely, but it is the "Decameron" that has proved itself a timeless classic. Our earlier owner, William Henry Smith, 3rd Viscount Hambleden, was the son of Frederick Smith, Hornby's college classmate and later his employer. Frederick had inherited from his own father the famous W. H. Smith company, the long-lived firm that became Britain's chief retailer of books, stationery, magazines, newspapers, and entertainment products. According to DNB, Frederick made "the master-stroke of his business life" when he hired Hornby in 1893, the latter proving "a decisive businessman whose work sustained and enhanced the firm's performance," chiefly by having the vision to establish the network of bookshops that made the company world-famous. For his part, employment at Smith's provided Hornby with a comfortable living, and allowed him to pursue his avocation as a printer. Because of their size and generally fragile materials, the large format linen-backed Ashendene volumes like this one are now difficult to find except in unflattering condition.

        This Side of Paradise

      1920. Signed. FITZGERALD, F. Scott.This Side of Paradise.New York: Charles Scribner?'s Sons, 1920.First edition, first printing of Fitzgerald?'s first novel, inscribed one day after publication, ?"For Pete Compton, A wild man if there ever was one — F. Scott Fitzgerald, Princeton, NJ, March 27th 1920.?"Although the inscription was written just one day after the publication of This Side of Paradise, Fitzgerald was already fast on his way to becoming the new literary sensation: the entire first printing of 3000 copies had already sold out (ultimately requiring two more printings in April alone). On March 30, 1920, Fitzgerald sent Zelda a telegram proposing that they should marry now: ?"Talked with John Palmer and Rosalind and we think best to get married Saturday noon we will be awfully nervous until it is over and would get no rest by waiting until Monday first edition of the book is sold out address Cottage until Thursday and Scribner?'s after that Love Scott.?" On April 3rd they were married at St. Patrick?'s Cathedral in New York. The parties in Princeton apparently continued: ?"In April they went to Princeton to ?'chaperon?' houseparties. ?'We were there three days,?' Fitzgerald wrote a friend. ?'Zelda and five men in Harvey Firestone?'s car and not one of us drew a sober breath… It was the damndest party ever held in Princeton & everyone in the University will agree?" (Turnbull, 107). The inscription is particularly appropriate in that This Side of Paradise is a romantic evocation of Fitzgerald?'s Princeton days, begun while he himself was still an undergraduate there. ?"This Side of Paradise achieved immense social impact. Daring and bold for its time, the novel projected new freedom-to flirt, smoke, pet, drink and dance. It functioned as a kind of bible for the Jazz Age among the nation?'s youth, catapulting Fitzgerald to overnight fame?" (Nolan, 37-38).Bruccoli A5.1.a. Bruccoli & Clark I:131.A bit of light dampstaining to top margin of some leaves, one-inch open tear to bottom margin of page 177. Some light spotting to original cloth.

        REIT IM WINKL. Reliefpanorama mit der Umgebung, die Orte als Vogelschauansichten.

      - 3 Blatt Bleistiftzeichnungen, z.T. blau aquarelliert, von J. Ruep, um 1920, je ca. 31 x 45 cm. Die vorliegenden drei Blätter dokumentieren sehr schön die Arbeitsweise des Künstlers Josef Ruep. Der erste, auf Transparentpapier ausgeführte Entwurf beschäftigt sich mit der Konzeption des Bildes, zeigt den Gesamtblick ohne jedoch die Details schon auszuarbeiten. Die Bergkette im Hintergrund ist nur in Umrißen angedeutet, während z.B. Reit im Winkl schon weitgehend ausgearbeitet ist. Im zweiten Blatt sind Walm- und Reitberg, Weitsee und Winklmoos, Fellhorn und Kössener Tal schon detaillierter dargestellt und auch beschriftet. Das letzte Blatt zeigt eine noch genauere Gestaltung der Berge, die Gewässer sind hier aquarelliert, z.T. mit Weißhöhung, und die Beschriftung sehr exakt. Das ganze Blatt ist bildmäßig mit gekonnten Schraffuren, exakten Konturierungen und schönen Hell-Dunkel-Effekten gestaltet. - Zwei Blätter auf festem Zeichenpapier, eines auf Transparentpapier; sehr gut erhalten.
