1920Gravure au burin monogrammée et datée en bas à gauche, 1916, 17.2 x 114 cm. Jean-Emile LABOUREUR (Nantes1877-Penestin 1943) est un peintre, graveur influencé par Gauguin, puis par le cubisme. Il tient une place prépondérante dans le grand mouvement de l'art moderne. Artiste talentueux et précoce, il apprend la gravure avec Auguste LEPERE et la lithographie avec TOULOUSE-LAUTREC. Son vif intérêt pour le cubisme lui permet d'adapter la simplification des formes tout en restant dans le figuratif. Il fréquente Guillaume APOLLINAIRE et Marie LAURENCIN. En 1923, il fonde l'Association des Peintres et Graveurs. Épreuve d'essai signée à la mine de plomb à toute marge, premier état sur 4 (avant les tailles quadrillées à l'angle inférieur droit et avant le titre). Taches de colle aux angles.

Mr Le Traz a écrit de bons articles sur ma peinture." Enfin, Pierre Bonnard donne son accord pour la reproduction des oeuvres choisies par Léon Deshairs : "J'autorise Mr Deshairs à reproduire dans Art et Décoration 10 toiles plus une en couleurs.

Watson & Co., Shanghai ((The Shanghai Pharmacy Ltd.), this Second & Revised Edition (circa 1920s) includes 30 tipped-in Vandyck photogravures in Excellent condition, each with a caption. Cord bound album with stiff card covers with black lettering and photo pasted on the front. Undated, though circa 1920s. Includes 30 tipped-in Vandyck photogravures in Excellent condition, each with a caption. Some wear, minor losses to spine as shown, but binding very good. Minor scuffing/darkening to covers. Interior is Excellent. Donald Mennie (1875 - 1941) was a Scottish businessman and amateur photographer. He arrived in Beijing in 1899 first working as an assistant in the firm of Mactavish & Lehman & Co in Beijing. After this, he joined the company of A.S. Watson & Co in Shanghai and eventually became the firm's managing director. In his photographs Mennie seemed to have tried to capture a romantic vision of 'antique China', featuring dusty caravans of horses or camels, old palaces and authentic street scenes, all in and around Beijing. Between 1914 and 1927 he published several books including China, North and South and The Grandeur of the Gorges, which I'm offering in another auction of mine on ebay. Other works include The Pageant of Peking and Glimpses of China. He was interned by the Japanese military in March 1943 and died in a Shanghai sanatorium in 1944.

There are 8 large designs for spines with some drawings, tool impressions, two of which are in color; 4 smaller designs for spines; 7 small "snippets" of tooling designs; 7 front cover designs (some drawings, some with tool impressions); 26 rubbings of bindings (covers, spines, etc., various sizes); 4 miscellaneous: a sheet of oasis leather samples used for the Andrew Lang Fairy Books, tool roll samples for a set of Shakespeare, a small piece of paper with what looks to be time studies for various bindings (e.g. ì? Plain 50 minî), spine design samples from various sets of English authors, sheet with various pictorial tools used and which authors, titles, etc. to use them (e.g. a witch on a broom and ìThe Arthur Rackham Fairy Bookî). A variety of paper has been used in these examples, some thicker, but much of it quite fine, i.e. tissue quality. Some small tears and browning from being folded for decades, but overall, most pieces in nice shape. A most scarce archive of original bookbinding records from one of the most famous bookbinding companies in the history of modern bookbinding.

Internally the hinges are restored and strong, the pastedowns are the usual darker yellow , part of the front right is a bit darker than the rest but internally a wonderful book, with clean white pages, tightly bound and an excellent photoplate.

[Japanese Moga / Modan Garu, or "Modern Girls"]. [Original Ink Drawings]
Late Taisho / early Show era (1920s). Very good. Oblong folio (225 x 195 mm). 30 leaves, stitched (modern threading). Preserved in mylar L-sleeve backed with lig-free board. Highly curious Japanese manuscript produced during the Roaring Twenties, being an amalgamation of Westernized and traditional Japanese fashion. Our manuscript was no doubt created by one of the Modan Garu (shortened to Moga), or "modern girls," who followed Westernized fashions and lifestyles. These Moga were Japan's equivalent of America's Flappers, Germany's Neue Frauen, France's Garconnes, and China's Modeng Xiaojie. The advent of the "modern girl" in Japanese society cannot be overestimated: Moga were financially and emotionally independent, consumeristic, and sexually liberated.Our manuscript contains depictions of Moga in many attitudes, including swimming in Western bathing suits, golfing in the manner of Jordon Baker, playing tennis, drinking from wine glasses and tea mugs, eating with forks, wearing jaunty Flapper hats, off-the-shoulder dresses, lipstick, and much more. Children are also in abundance: some of the girls wear short dresses and pumps, with bows in their hair, others wear traditional Japanese costume. Some of the men wear high-collared shirts and "Dick Tracy" hats, others have mustaches. Interspersed throughout are depictions of traditional Japanese kimono and geta, as well as illustrations of a variety of subjects. Clearly an amaturish production, this is a manuscript with great charm, and particularly interesting in that the tensions between "old" and "new" Japan are graphicall … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOUCHER, Lucien.
Paris: Marcel Seheur, 1920. Quarto. Original cream paper-covered boards with title in red and black and mounted pochoir illustration to the front board, grey marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom cloth solander box. A few splash marks to spine of box, pale toning to periphery of covers, light bump to one corner. An excellent copy. 43 leaves of light card each mounted on calque paper stubs, 21 with full-page hand-coloured wood-engraved illustrations, one with a double-page hand-coloured panorama of the camp, the remaining text leaves with decorative borders all with tonal tints or spot colour. First and only edition, number 72 of 175 copies "sur papier de luxe". An extremely delicately produced piece, with each leaf mounted on a thin paper stub, unsurprisingly just five copies on OCLC - BnF, Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Münster, Dartmouth College, Yale, and NLA - and no copies traced at auction. A superb eyewitness record, in words and pictures, of incarceration at the prisoner of war camp at Merseburg in Saxony, written, illustrated and published by three inmates. In his preface Mac-Orlan justly privileges Boucher's "beautiful, melancholy and malicious" images, for giving an impression of the camp that is "so striking and so honest as to be almost inexplicable [si saisissante et si loyale qu'elle semble inexplicable]", singling out in particular that of "the closed washroom door, with enamelled iron water jugs smudged with black spots, awaiting, like fox terriers in front of a rat, opening hour [la porte des lavabos fermés, les brocs-à-eau en fer émaillé, maculés de t … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Gardens; Italian Gardens; Parrish, Maxfield]; Wharton Edith

Profusely illustrated with 52 illustrations, 27 of which are either colourplates or half-tones by Maxfield Parrish, the rest being photographs and drawings by E. Denison, Malcolm Fraser and C. A. Vanderhof. Tall 8vo, publisher's original dark forest green cloth decorated and lettered in gilt on the spine, cover design by Decorative Designers with elaborate pictorial decorations after Maxfield Parrish in an all over design, upper cover stamped in gilt and blocked in light green, blue, purple, gilt and rust, showing a villa garden. 270 pp. A very handsome copy, with some mellowing to the decoration and lettering on the spine panel. Otherwise a very clean and bright copy, the upper cover decoration being very well preserved, the interior is very fresh and essentially flawless. A VERY HANDSOME COPY OF THIS HIGHLY REGARDED AND SOUGHT AFTER WORK. One of the most well-written books on Italian garden design. The combination of Wharton's liquid descriptions and Parrish's romantic paintings, makes for an extremely delightful book. Special attention is given to the gardens found at Florentine, Sienese and Roman villas. The relationship of the buildings to the natural surroundings is explored in detail. "The Italian garden does not exist for its flowers; its flowers exist for it: they are a late and infrequent adjunct to its beauties, a parenthetical grace counting only as one more touch in the general effect of enchantment. This is no doubt partly explained by the d … [Click Below for Full Description]
