        A skin lodge of an Assiniboin chief [Vig. 16]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé and Hurlimann after Bodmer, issue with no imprint line. 10 1/2 x 13 1/4 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine image containing all the essentials a Plains Indian needed or wanted to sustain life. On June 10th 1833, a camp of about twenty five tipis was set up by a band of Assiniboin near Fort Union, at the junction of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers. The tipi in the foreground is painted with bear figures: the owner of this tipi was assumed to have strong supernatural powers (an essential for success in battle, or for aid in treating the sick). In front of the tipi the chief's wife loads a travois harnessed to a dog: these elegantly simple constructions consisted of a netted circular platform attached to long poles and were used to transport baggage. A group of three unused travois stand propped to the left of the woman. The chief relaxes against a rolled blanket in the lee of the tipi, shaded from the afternoon sun, bow in hand, watching his wife work. To his left his small son wrestles playfully with one of the other dogs which follow the band. A warrior returns on horse back with news of game or buffalo. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. `David C.

        Le règne de l'esprit malin *

      Georg & Cie, Genève (1922). - Reliure signée de Canape, demi maroquin vert sapin à coins, dos (passé) à nerfs, titre et tête or, signet, couverture bleuâtre imprimée et dos conservés. L'un des 12 exemplaires de tête sur Japon. premiers ont remplacé les derniers. Qu'un éventuel possesseur de volume sur Rives nous détrompe . Les Japon quant à eux existent bien puisque notre volume en est, pas plus justifié que les Rives, dont nous avons croisé, entre temps d'autres exemplaires, tout cela semblant corroborer notre prime impression.Une chose est certaine c'est une publication de luxe, bien supérieure à celle du tirage ordinaire, icelui étant d'ailleurs habillé d'une pauvre couverture grise.Le nôtre ne se contente pas de japoniser, il est en sus truffé d'une bafouille autographe de l'auteur qui se trouve être un projet de lettre de l'auteur, en lieu et place de l'éditeur semble-t-il, dont elle se fait le porte-parole en vantant les mérites de la réimpression de ce titre; l'éditeur y a d'ailleurs surajouté de sa main, au crayon gris, quelques notes plus affirmées. Cette missive visait manifestement la presse, peut-être parisienne, , sollicitant une annonce sur l'ouvrage en question, à paraître. En 29 lignes, non signée ni datée, mais sans la moindre équivoque sur l'époque et l'attribution de son rédacteur, elle argumente en faveur d'un article par la plus juste calculation de son prix, sa réalisation en terre romande "dans des circonstances économiques difficiles" et l'établissement d'un texte "complètement revu et même partiellement récrit".Quant à l'éventuel amateur d'exemplaire propret de l'originale de 1917 aux Cahiers vaudois, qu'il sache qu'au moment de rédiger cette notice nous en disposons.[Bringolf 20b]

        Camp of the Gros Ventres of the Prairies on the upper Missouri [Tab. 38]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by Himely after Bodmer. Small tears to upper margin not affecting plate area. 13 1/8 x 16 3/8 inches. 18 1/4 x 24 3/4 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) Prince Maximilian and his party left Fort Union on 6 July aboard the 60-foot keelboat Flora and eventually arrived at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833. The present view recalls the events of 5th August when the keelboat stopped opposite an Atsina camp at the mouth of the Judith River. The camp contained over 200 tipis and the boat was soon overrun by visitors wishing to trade. The Indians far outnumbered the party of travelers and the situation remained chaotic and tense for a while: Prince Maximilian, in his journal entry for the day noted that `If it was their intention to treat us in a hostile manner, there was no way for us to escape; and how easily might the most trifling dispute with these rude men lead to a breach, by which fifty whites, in the power of eight or nine hundred Indians, would have had no chance. They were therefore treated with much apparent confidence and familiarity, and everything went off very well.' The vessel sailed on as soon as possible. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C.

Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine half-length double portrait by Bodmer of two Blackfoot chiefs: Prince Maximilian referred to Mehkskéhme-Sukáhs [`Iron Shirt'] as the most distinguished of the several chiefs who gathered to welcome the arrival of the keelboat Flora at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833. At the time he was wearing a lace-trimmed scarlet uniform obtained from the British traders as a gift. He posed for this portrait on August 11th wearing a hide shirt decorated with otter fur, beadwork and metal trade buttons. In his hair are feathers, a bear claw and what appears to be a small ermine with blue beads for eyes. Tátsicki-Stomíck [`Middle Bull'] was probably the principal chief of the Piegan Blackfoot. He was a serious thoughtful man who had sought to maintain an amicable trading relationship between his people and the various companies competing for hides and pelts. Maximilian had particularly admired a shirt of his made from the skin of a bighorn sheep, richly ornamented with ermine, feathers and tufts of hair, and Maximilian lamented that for the present portrait he wore a much simpler shirt decorated with simple beadwork. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C.

        ULYSSES

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922. First Edition. Hardcover. Despite the defects, Very Good in a handsome slipcase. Scarce. The true First Printing of this modern classic. Copy #482 of 750 numbered copies printed on handmade paper of a total edition of only 1000. Bound without the original blue paper covers in half brown morocco with matching corners, spine lettered in gilt, with a matching half morocco slipcase. A very nice copy priced very attractively because the half title and title pages are in expert facsimile. There is also a facsimile corner repair to one page. The initial and rear blanks as well as the colophon leaf at the end are lacking; the limitation leaf at the beginning is original. In order to bring the book into an English-speaking country before 1934, a number of people evidently tore off the wraps and title pages to smuggle it in through customs. If you can live with this, you will have on your shelf perhaps the most notable work of fiction written in the twentieth century at a price you are not likely to encounter elsewhere.

Housed in a fleece-lined quarter blue morocco clamshell case."Theocritus (first half of the third century BC), Hellenistic Greek poet, the originator of pastoral or bucolic poetry His extant poems, generically known as Idylls, and mostly in the hexameter metre, include court poems, mythological poems, and epigrams, but his fame stems from the seven or so poems which were primarily bucolic. These were to have a strong influence on Virgil (in the Eclogues) and through him on later European literature The first Idyll contains the beautiful lament for Daphnis, a dirge imitated in the Adonis of Bion and in the Bion attributed to Moschus, and the prototype of later pastoral elegies, Milton’s Lycidas, Shelley’s Adonais, and Matthew Arnold’s Thyrsis" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).Bion "of Smyrna, the last Greek pastoral poet known to us by name; he lived at the end of the second century BC, and is generally linked with the pastoral poet Moschus. Virtually nothing is known of his life; according to the anonymous Lament for Bion (attributed to Moschus), he lived in Sicily and died by poisoning. He wrote in hexameters in the (literary) Doric dialect, and seventeen fragments of his poems (some may even be complete) survive. Since the Renaissance he has been credited with the Lament for Adonis The pastoral element in his work is slight, most of the poems being playfully erotic" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature). "Moschus (flourished c.150 BC), Greek poet of Syracuse whose extant poems include five hexameter pieces, one of which is bucolic (comparing the pleasures of the countryman with the hard lot of the fisherman), and an epigram on Eros as a ploughman; there are also an epyllion Europa in 166 hexameters on the rape of Europa by Zeus, and the Megara, a hexameter dialogue between Heracles’ wife (who gave her name to the poem) and his mother Alcmena, who bewail their misfortunes caused by Heracles' long absence. Also attributed to Moschus, but improbably since Bion (2) lived at least a generation after him, is the beautiful (bucolic) Lament for Bion" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).
