Original prints made ??for the illustration of The Gazette fashionable, one of the finest and most influential twentieth century fashion magazines, celebrating the talent of creators and artists French burgeoning art deco. Famous fashion magazine founded in 1912 by Lucien Vogel, The Gazette fashionable appeared until 1925 with an interruption during the War of 1915 to 1920, due to mobilization of its editor. She is 69 Deliveries from just 2000 copies and is illustrated including 573 color plates and 148 sketches depicting models of fashion designers. Upon publication, these luxury publications "are for bibliophiles and worldly aesthetes" (Françoise Tétart-Vittu "good Gazette of tone" in the fashion dictionary, 2016). Printed on fine laid paper, they use a typeface created specifically for the magazine by Georges Peignot, the Cochin character, taken in 1946 by Christian Dior. The prints are made with the technique of metal stencil, enhanced color and some outlined in gold or palladium. The adventure began in 1912 when Lucien Vogel, man of the world and fashion - it has already participated in Femina magazine - decided to found with his wife Cosette de Brunhoff (John's sister, the father of Babar) Gazette good tone in which the subtitle is then "Art, fashions and frivolities." Georges Charensol quotes the editor: "In 1910, he observed, there was no truly artistic fashion magazine and representative of the spirit of his time. So I thought of making a glossy magazine with truly modern artists [...] I was certain of success because for any fashion country can compete with France. "(" A great art editor. Lucien Vogel "in literary News, No. 133, May 1925). The success of the magazine is immediate, not only in France but also the US and South America.

Nevertheless, some of Illustrations contained no real model, but only the idea that the illustrator is done in the fashion of the day. Gazette fashionable is a milestone in the history of fashion. Combining the aesthetic requirement and plastic unit, it brings together for the first time the great talents of the world of arts, literature and fashion and imposed by this alchemy, a new image of women, slender, independent and bold, also driven by the new generation of designers Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Rochas Marcel ...

Gravures originales réalisées pour l'illustration de La Gazette du bon ton, l'une des plus belles et des plus influentes revues de mode du XXème siècle, célébrant le talent des créateurs et des artistes français en plein essor de l'art déco.   Célèbre revue de mode fondée en 1912 par Lucien Vogel, La Gazette du bon ton a paru jusqu'en 1925 avec une interruption durant la Guerre de 1915 à 1920, pour cause de mobilisation de son rédacteur en chef. Elle se constitue de 69 livraisons tirées à seulement 2000 exemplaires et est illustrée notamment de 573 planches en couleurs et de 148 croquis représentant des modèles de grands couturiers. Dès leur parution, ces luxueuses publications « s'adressent aux bibliophiles et aux mondains esthètes » (Françoise Tétart-Vittu « La Gazette du bon ton » in Dictionnaire de la mode, 2016). Imprimées sur beau papier vergé, elles utilisent une police typographique spécialement créée pour la revue par Georges Peignot, le caractère Cochin, repris en 1946 par Christian Dior. Les estampes sont réalisées grâce à la technique du pochoir métallique, rehaussées en couleurs et pour certaines soulignées à l'or ou au palladium. L'aventure commence en 1912 lorsque Lucien Vogel, homme du monde et de la mode - il a déjà participé à la revue Femina - décide de fonder avec sa femme Cosette de Brunhoff (sœur de Jean, le père de Babar) la Gazette du bon ton dont le sous-titre est alors « Art, modes et frivolités ». Georges Charensol rapporte les propos du rédacteur en chef : « En 1910, observe-t-il, il n'existait aucun journal de mode véritablement artistique et représentatif de l'esprit de son époque. Je songeais donc à faire un magazine de luxe avec des artistes véritablement modernes [...] J'étais certain du succès car pour la mode aucun pays ne peut rivaliser avec la France. » (« Un grand éditeur d'art. Lucien Vogel » in Les Nouvelles littéraires, n°133, mai 1925). Le succès de la revue est immédiat, non seulement en France, mais aussi aux Etats-Unis et en Amérique du Sud. À l'origine, Vogel réunit donc un groupe de sept artistes : André-Édouard Marty et Pierre Brissaud, suivis de Georges Lepape et Dammicourt ; et enfin ses amis de l'École des beaux-arts que sont George Barbier, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, ou Charles Martin. D'autres talents viennent rapidement rejoindre l'équipée : Guy Arnoux, Léon Bakst, Benito, Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, Chas Laborde, Jean-Gabriel Domergue, Raoul Dufy, Édouard Halouze, Alexandre Iacovleff, Jean Émile Laboureur, Charles Loupot, Charles Martin, Maggie Salcedo. Ces artistes, inconnus pour la plupart lorsque Lucien Vogel fait appel à eux, deviendront par la suite des figures artistiques emblématiques et recherchées. Ce sont ces mêmes illustrateurs qui réalisent les dessins des publicités de la Gazette. Les planches mettent en lumière et subliment les robes de sept créateurs de l'époque : Lanvin, Doeuillet, Paquin, Poiret, Worth, Vionnet et Doucet. Les couturiers fournissent pour chaque numéro des modèles exclusifs. Néanmoins, certaines des illustrations ne figurent aucun modèle réel, mais seulement l'idée que l'illustrateur se fait de la mode du jour. La Gazette du bon ton est une étape décisive dans l'histoire de la mode. Alliant l'exigence esthétique et l'unité plastique, elle réunit pour la première fois les grands talents du monde des arts, des lettres et de la mode et impose, par cette alchimie, une toute nouvelle image de la femme, élancée, indépendante et audacieuse, également portée par la nouvelle génération de couturiers Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Marcel Rochas... Reprise en 1920 par Condé Montrose Nast, la Gazette du bon ton inspirera largement la nouvelle composition et les choix esthétiques du « petit journal mourant » que Nast avait racheté quelques années auparavant : le magazine Vogue.

        Souvenirs entomologiques. Études sur l'instinct et les moeurs des insectes. (Première-Dixième series). Édition définitive illustrée.

      Paris, Delagrave, 1920-1924. Ten volumes in ten [and an 11th volume, titled "Sa Vie"]. Large 8vo (24.3 x 16.2 cm). Over 4,000 pages. Numerous plates and fine text engravings. Later half tree calf over marbled boards. Spines with five slightly raised bands; compartments rich gilt with entomological vignettes, and red morocco labels with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Top edge red.l The definitive Jean Henri Fabre (1823-1915) and his major work, in fine bindings. "Fabre was a popular teacher, physicist, chemist and botanist. However, he is probably best known for his findings in the field of entomology, the study of insects, and is considered by many to be the father of modern entomology. Much of his enduring popularity is due to his marvelous teaching ability and his manner of writing about the lives of insects in biographical form, which he preferred to a clinically detached, journalistic mode of recording. In doing so he combined what he called 'my passion for scientific truth with keen observations and an engaging, colloquial style of writing'... His Souvenirs Entomologiques is a series of texts on insects and arachnids. He influenced the later writings of Charles Darwin, who called Fabre 'an inimitable observer'. Fabre, however, was a Christian who remained sceptical about Darwin's theory of evolution, as he always held back from all theories and systems. His special force was exact and detailed observation, field research, always avoiding general conclusions from his observations, which he considered premature" (Wikipedia). Added, in a near-matching binding (only the spine bands are slightly more pronounced, and the compartments plain) "La vie de J.-H. Fabre. Naturaliste. Suivie du répertoire général analytique des Souvenirs Entomologiques par le Dr. G.-V. Legros". This work, published in 1924, also by Delagrave, has a preface by Fabre himself, and his portrait. It was published by the Delagrave in the same year as the last volume of the "Souvenirs", and is bound with the original pictorial wrappers included. It contains xv + 439 pp., and 16 tissue-guarded, mostly photographic plates. Uncut. Fore edges somewhat spotted, otherwise clean. A very nice ensemble in excellent condition. More information about the "Souvenirs" can be found on https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Souvenirs_entomologiques. Horn-Schenkling II(2), pp. 1-2.

        Cinquante Dessins

      1920. First Edition . Signed. MATISSE, Henri. Cinquante Dessins. Paris: Les Soins de l'Artiste, 1920. Quarto, period-style full dark red morocco, elaborately gilt decorated spine and boards, raised bands, marbled endpapers, each leaf mounted onto linen hinge, original printed paper wrappers bound in. $13,500.First edition, number 236 of only 1000 copies with a lovely original etching by Matisse of a woman’s face, entitled “Mlle. M. M,” signed by him. Presentation copy from Matisse's youngest son, Pierre, and his first wife Alexina ""Teeny"" Sattler, inscribed on a front flyleaf, ""For Dr. Bartlett from Pierre and Teeny Matisse."" Beautifully bound.Matisse himself edited and printed this lovely suite of 50 photo-lithographic reproductions of his drawings of women to accompany a 1920 exhibition of his work. ""Daily painting sessions alternated with hours on end devoted to drawing, a corrective Matisse would use from now on whenever he felt his work was in danger of losing its balance between color and feeling on the one hand, and line and form on the other… He returned over and over again to a lace collar, drawing it first in minute detail until he had got it by heart and could translated it at will with two swift lines 'into an ornament, an arabesque, without losing the character of lace, and of that particular lace'… Matisse was evolving methods he would use for the rest of his life. He published fifty of these drawings in a portfolio called Cinquante Dessins to coincide with his exhibition at Bernheim-Jeune in 1920. A surge of renewed energy pulses between the lines of the letters he wrote home as he drew them"" (Spurling, Matisse the Master, 225-26). Matisse's youngest son Pierre, who has inscribed and presented this copy, was born in 1900. He exhibited an early interest in the art market, and as a young man took a job at the Galerie Barbazanges-Hodebert in Paris. In 1924, he came to New York, where he began a distinguished career of 65 years as an art dealer. He married Alexina ""Teeny"" Sattler in 1929; they separated in 1949. Preface by Charles Vildrac. Text in French. Duthuit 68. Ink gift inscription.A fine signed copy, scarce and desirable.

        BASEBALL FILM - Early film reel in three parts depicting Babe Ruth and the Yankees, submarine pitcher Carl Mays, and more.

      New York: Pathe Newreel, 1920 Film reel in three parts: the first a 1921 Pathe Newsreel of the Cleveland Indians hosting the New York Yankees, likely August, 1920, with Babe Ruth predominantly featured (this section likely a later print, perhaps 1930s); the second section likely a "positive master" (per Cinelab Inc.) of other baseball reportage, including footage of Carl Mays (see note); the third section an undated colorized cartoon of Ruth at the bat. The three sections spliced together at an early point, with modern leaders, in can and spool, sold with thumb drives containing a digitization of the film. Some wear to film perforations, film in generally sound condition, recently scanned to digital by Cinelab of Boston and with digital copies as noted. The first section of this amusing newsreel shows the Cleveland Indians hosting the New York Yankees likely during August of the 1920 season. The preoccupation of much of the footage is on Babe Ruth, his contract recently purchased from Boston, appearing here in his Yankee uniform during his first season with the team. The reel opens with the text "The sporting question of the hour. Did Babe Ruth get another [homerun] today?" and continues to show much pre-game activity including Ruth warming up his arm, at batting practice and later at the plate during the game. Also shown is Bob Muesel, Wally Pipp, Ping Bodie and Del Pratt who was traded at end of the 1920 season helping to date the footage. This section also contains rare slow motion footage of Carl Mays "the last of the underhand pitchers" who infamously killed beloved Cleveland shortstop Ray Chapman on August 16th, 1920 (during a Yankees home stand against the Indians just weeks later) and, while it is difficult to be certain, Chapman may be visible here in the sequence of the Indians dugout just before the rain delay. The second portion of the film, possibly a "positive master" print (with strong tones and contrast) shows New York Giants manager John McGraw instructing pitchers in practice, most notably Carl Mays who joined the team for one season only in 1929 (his last in the majors). Mays is shown throwing in his characteristic submarine style and is also interviewed with McGraw gripping the ball for this dangerous pitch. Combined, this footage of Carl Mays' whipping underhand delivery is a haunting reminder of the dangers of the game, and suggests that the focus of this compilation is equally on Mays as it is on Ruth. / Photos available upon request.

Some creasing from mailing, normal aging, some light wear; otherwise very good. After serving as a distributor for Gramm trucks in the early 1900s, Paul Kleiber founded the Kleiber Motor Truck Company in 1913. He did well with the truck business, he entered the automobile business, and between 1924-1929 produced a small number of cars, which were sold mostly on the Pacific Coast. he didn't have a wide selection of cars, but they had good quality, and will billed as "Aristocratic in Appearance." However, the company never recuperated from the stock market crash of 1929, and appears to have abandoned car making around that time. Kleiber did continue to make trucks until 1937. american-automobiles website.

En 1917 empezó a usar el término holandés Nieuwe Beelding, y utilizó por primera vez el término en esta publicación. Fue generalizándose su uso como término que describía las teorías de arte de Mondrian y su estilo pictórico en que una cuadrícula, delimitada con líneas negras, estaba rellena con bloques de colores primarios. NEO-PLASTICISME term coined by Piet Mondrian. In 1917 Mondrian began using the Dutch term Nieuwe Beelding, meaning something like ‘new forming’, and he first used the term in this book. It gained currency as a descriptive term applied to Mondrian’s theories of art and to his style of painting, in which a grid, delineated by black lines, was filled with blocks of primary colour.

        Tapijten en karpetten. [Rugs and carpets].

      [The Netherlands], Déwiho, ca. 1920. Folio (54.3 x 29.5 cm) 22 leaves with gilt text and multiple full colour prints tipped in. In original Art Deco binding with full colour printed drawing of a long haired goat mounted on the front board.l A very rare Dutch language trade catalogue with numerous rugs and carpets in many sizes, designs, and colours. Many are of a "modern" or "exotic" design in Art Deco or related styles. Others are of classical oriental design. The firm's name, DÉWIHO (logo: DéwihO Dessins) suggests an acronym, perhaps based on an abbreviation of the surnames of perhaps three founders or owners. The sumptuous catalogue, which includes photos of large factories, suggests a major firm, most probably in the Netherlands. However, we could find no trace of a carpet manufacturer with this name anywhere on the internet. The Textielmuseum (Textile Museum) in Enschede, however, lists Déwiho as publisher of several sample catalogues for the Amsterdam textile and furniture wholesale firm J. P. Wyers (active from 1797 to 2005), published between 1915-1935, as well as from the early 1960's. Perhaps Déwiho was the in-house printer/advertising department of J. P. Wyers. Some rubbing to the portfolio; a few leaves with cuts; one design actually removed, one not tipped in. In all, a very good copy of this rare, grand catalogue.

        Souvenirs entomologiques. Études sur l'instinct et les moeurs des insectes. (Première-Dixième series). Édition définitive illustrée.

      Paris, Delagrave, 1920-1924. Ten volumes in ten [and an 11th volume, titled "Sa Vie"]. Large 8vo (24.3 x 16.2 cm). Over 4,000 pages. Numerous plates and fine text engravings. Later half tree calf over marbled boards. Spines with five slightly raised bands; compartments rich gilt with entomological vignettes, and red morocco labels with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Top edge red.l The definitive Jean Henri Fabre (1823-1915) and his major work, in fine bindings. "Fabre was a popular teacher, physicist, chemist and botanist. However, he is probably best known for his findings in the field of entomology, the study of insects, and is considered by many to be the father of modern entomology. Much of his enduring popularity is due to his marvelous teaching ability and his manner of writing about the lives of insects in biographical form, which he preferred to a clinically detached, journalistic mode of recording. In doing so he combined what he called 'my passion for scientific truth with keen observations and an engaging, colloquial style of writing'... His Souvenirs Entomologiques is a series of texts on insects and arachnids. He influenced the later writings of Charles Darwin, who called Fabre 'an inimitable observer'. Fabre, however, was a Christian who remained sceptical about Darwin's theory of evolution, as he always held back from all theories and systems. His special force was exact and detailed observation, field research, always avoiding general conclusions from his observations, which he considered premature" (Wikipedia). Added, in a near-matching binding (only the spine bands are slightly more pronounced, and the compartments plain) "La vie de J.-H. Fabre. Naturaliste. Suivie du répertoire général analytique des Souvenirs Entomologiques par le Dr. G.-V. Legros". This work, published in 1924, also by Delagrave, has a preface by Fabre himself, and his portrait. It was published by the Delagrave in the same year as the last volume of the "Souvenirs", and is bound with the original pictorial wrappers included. It contains xv + 439 pp., and 16 tissue-guarded, mostly photographic plates. Uncut. Fore edges somewhat spotted, otherwise clean. A very nice ensemble in excellent condition. More information about the "Souvenirs" can be found on https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Souvenirs_entomologiques. Horn-Schenkling II(2), pp. 1-2.
