        Les valses nobles et sentimentales" - Autograph Musical Quotation

      - An elegant AMQS from the important French composer, penned on his monogrammed stationery. Ravel has written 5 bars from his third waltz of Les Valses nobles et sentimentales, notated on a hand-drawn stave. Addressed to a Madame Catherine Parker in Chicago, with her name and address typewritten above the quotation, and dated 27 January 1924. 1 page, 4to, personal stationery; separations at folds repaired verso with cello tape, vertical fold touching holograph date with some loss, faint uneven toning. Together with a reproduction portrait photograph.The piano version of Ravel's Valses nobles et sentimentales was published in 1911, and an orchestral version was published in 1912. The title was chosen in hommage to Franz Schubert, who had released collections of waltzes in 1823 entitled Valses nobles and Valses sentimentales. The piano edition is published with a quotation of Henri de Régnier: ".le plaisir délicieux et toujours nouveau d'une occupation inutile" (the delicious and forever-new pleasure of a useless occupation). The suite contains an eclectic blend of Impressionist and Modernist music, which is especially evident in the orchestrated version.

Illustrated by Kay Nielsen. London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1924]. Limited to 500 copies numbered and signed by the artist, this being copy no. 209. Large quarto (12 3/16 x 9 7/8 inches; 310 x 250 mm.). [x], 11-197, [3, blank] pp. Text with decorative borders and initials. Twelve mounted color plates with captioned tissue guards and numerous black and white text illustrations including seventeen full-page.Publisher's vellum, front cover and spine pictorially stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Some very minor soiling to spine and covers otherwise a near fine copy. Housed in a blue cloth slipcase.Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) "was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen's designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring... Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen's objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story's emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).
