        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.

        En Chine [Manuscript].

      - Original manuscript, 1920-[1921]. Handwritten on 516 large (31.0 x 21.0 cm), numbered leaves. Preserved in a modern cloth-covered clamshell box (35.5 x 27.0 x 8.5 cm).l Manuscript by the controversial French poet, writer, and politician Abel Jean Désiré Bonnard (1883-1968), member of the Académie Française, and writer of more than 15 works; both fiction and non-fiction. This manuscript deals with his travels to China, published in two volumes as "Notes de voyage: En Chine (1920-1921)" (Paris, Artheme Fayard, 1924). The manuscript was dedicated "à ma mère, parce qu elle me dit que cela lui fait plaisir, et que je voudrais lui faire tous les plaisirs possibles" [to my mother, because she told me that it made her happy, and I would do everything to make her happy], and dated juin [June] 1920. In other words, the dedication was written during his voyage. Sections of the manuscript deal, for instance, with Pekin (Beijing), le Yang-tsé, Chinese villages, Hong-Kong, and the return voyage. Later in his life, Bonnard moved politically to the extreme right. During WWII he became a minister in Pétain's Vichy government: "Bonnard was one of only a few members expelled from the Académie Française after World War II for collaboration with Germany. Bonnard was condemned in absentia to death during the épuration légale period for wartime activities. However, Francisco Franco granted him political asylum in Spain. In 1960, he returned to France to face retrial for his crimes. He received a symbolic sentence of 10 years banishment to be counted from 1945, but dissatisfied with the verdict of guilty, he chose to return to Spain where he lived out the remainder of his life" (Wikipedia). His book "Les modérés", first published in 1936 has recently [2013] been republished. The manuscript contains many additions and corrections by the author. Added: a few old journal clippings related to the author. A few leaves a bit frayed and chipped at the outer margins, otherwise very good, and very readable. A unique item. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Youth and the Bright Medusa

      New York: Knopf, 1920. First edition. The rare limited issue, one of 35 unnumbered copies issued with all edges untrimmed, signed in full "Willa Sibert Cather" on the front free endpaper. Original green cloth, spine has small areas of spotting where the green pigment is lost; number in ink on upper cover; ownership signature at the bottom of the front endpaper, (James R. Messenger, Emmy Award-winning documentary film maker, and sometime contributor to the Willa Cather Newsletter). A very good copy preserved in a clamshell box. As these copies are taller than the trade issue, and special binding cases had to be made, it's unlikely they were issued in dust jacket. Youth and the Bright Medusa was the first of Cather's books to be published by Knopf, who would remain her publisher thereafter.

        JÉSUS-CHRIST RASTAQUOUÉRE. Dessins par Ribemont-Dessaignes.

      Collection Dada,, Paris 1920 - 16.5x23.5. 68pp. 3 ilustraciones en negro a plena página. Tirada limitada y numerada. Este es el ejemplar nº670.'Los críticos tienden a referirse a Jésus-Christ Rastaquouère como novela, sin embargo como corresponde a su posición como ‘peut-être le document dadaïste le plus important de cette époque’, el texto ni contiene argumento, ni tiene un sentido de progresión narrativa discernible Intenta hacer una nivelación dadaísta de todos los sistemas de valores socialmente construidos, a través de una doble estrategia, de inversión de sentido común y de equiparar la desigualdad'.'Critics tend to refer to Jésus-Christ Rastaquouère as a novel. However, as befitsts its position as ‘peut-être le document dadaïste le plus important de cette époque’ (Sanouillet’s claim; my emphasis), the text contains neither plot, nor any discernible sense of narrative progression. It directs itself towards the Dadaistic levelling of all socially constructed value systems via a dual strategy of inverting common sense and equating the unequal.'
