        The Sculpture of David Wynne 1968/1974

      This is the signed, limited edition, copy #39 of 125, hand-numbered thus on the limitation page.  The binding is "full aniline finish Bookcalf" by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with raised spine bands, gilt rule compartments, hand-marbled endpapers, gilt-rule turn-ins, and gilt page edges.  A gilt medallion "in fine silver, modelled by the sculptor" is inset on the front cover.  The half-title bears the artist's signature in bold, black ink.  The pristine fine binding is housed in a felt-lined dark red buckram clamshell case with a gilt-stamped spine label matching the binding's dark red calf.  David Wynne (1926 - ) is a renowned British sculptor of figures, animals, and portraits, including the Queen and the Beatles.  He was awarded the OBE in 1994.  This spectacular limited edition features his work from 1968-1974 - what the 1974 introduction by Graham Hughes calls "Wynne's twelve most important public commissions of the past eight years."  Each work is illustrated with photographs taken by Clive Barda "showing the settings as well as the most beautiful features of each piece."  The book itself remains in flawlessly fine condition, with no discernable wear or defects and no markings other than the artist's signature.  The clamshell preservation case shows only trivial scuffing and some spotting to the white felt lining.  Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage.

Né fort riche, Maurice Heine (1884-1949), suivit des études de médecine, profession qu'il n'exercera pas, préférant donner des articles à des revues scientifiques et théoriser sur la psychopathologie sexuelle.

      New York. unbound. Woodcut. Signed in pen. Image measures 7 1/4 x 5 3/4". Sheet measures 10 1/2 x 8 1/2". Matted with archival corners.This print by Rockwell Kent depicts a young woman washing her hair at the shore of a lake. Part of the woman's reflection appears in the lake at the bottom, and the background is lush with stylized foliage. The print, created circa 1926, appeared in Kent's 1933 "Rockwellkentiana" (p. 37). It is in excellent condition with a French matting and wide margins. It has been professionally matted with archival corners. Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was an American realist painter from Tarrytown, New York. Kent spent his life in a variety of places, including Maine, Newfoundland, Alaska, Greenland, and South America. His paintings, lithographs, and woodcuts often portray aspects of a life lived in nature and are collected today by major museums throughout the country. Kent was also a prolific writer and illustrator who produced several books. This print is a lovely example of his work.

        The Torrents of Spring

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926 First edition, first printing of the author's first novel. A near fine copy, with slight wear to the spine head and tail, minor rubbing to the corners, minor smudging to the half-title page, otherwise clean pages, in a first issue unclipped dust jacket, with nine titles to the real panel, slight rubbing to the hinges, some toning to the spine, light staining to the edges of the rear panel and flap, minor chipping to the corners, some loss to the top edge of the front panel, small losses to the spine head and tail and top edge of the rear panel, some tape reinforcement and a few small repairs to the jacket verso at the spine, else good. The Torrents of Spring is Hemingway's first novel and first book published by Charles Scribner's Sons. In this satirical novel written in only ten days, Hemingway parodies Sherwood Anderson's 1925 Dark Laughter and critiques the larger literary trends of his contemporary popular writers, or the "great race." The Torrents of Spring was first rejected by Boni and Liveright, the same publishing house that produced Anderson's Dark Laughter, before being printed in a run of 1,250 by the more commercially successful Charles Scribner's Sons. While his critique of Anderson, who had mentored the young writer and helped him get signed with Boni and Liveright, was correctly seen as disrespectful, Hemingway's The Torrents of Spring helped bring him the publicity and new writing opportunities he desired; the author would subsequently publish shorter pieces for Scribner's Magazine and became professionally affiliated with F. Scott Fitzgerald, whom he had met in Paris and had influenced Hemingway's decision to switch publishers.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

      TALLANDIER, Paris 1926 - Huit dessins réalisés sur des cartes à gratter signés en bas à droite, protégés par une serpente, (1925), 12.7 x 19.5 cm.

Aventurier dans l'âme, il aimait les voyages et se spécialisa dans l'écriture des romans d'aventures où l'on suit les péripéties de pirates ou autres héros au grand coeur. Les Mystères de la Jungle noire se déroulent en Inde, et ont été adaptés au cinéma. Légendes manuscrites au dos des dessins : p. 14 : "Le général Naïck s'élança à son secours. Un cri d'étonnement lui échappa." ; p. 58 : "Le chasseur de serpents tomba instinctivement à genoux les bras tendus, mais la jeune fille recula plus effrayée que jamais." ; p. 95 : "Les deux formidables bêtes se regardèrent pendant quelques instants." ; p. 123 : "Un sifflement coupa l'air et le malheureux, serré au cou par le lacet tandis que la boule de plomb frappait fortement la nuque, s'abattit" ; p. 184 "S'emparer de la jeune fille qui était tombée évanouie et disparaître sous les galeries avec Hammamouri et le tigre ne fut que l'affaire d'un instant" ; p. 213 : "Pour toute réponse, le capitaine leva le fouet et lui fit un sillon rouge sur la joue." ; p. 279 : "Le cheval hennit, fit un bond, s'abattit, entraînant dans sa chute les deux cavaliers" ; p. 300 : "Et ce furent de nouvelles explosions et de nouveaux cris des assaillants enragés et des Anglais terrassés." Dos des gravures jauni, serpentes jaunies, quelques déchirures et plis. Oeuvre originale

        L'ITALIANO. Diretto da Leo Longanesi. Rivista settimanale della gente fascista.

      Di questo importante periodico fondato da Leo Longanesi, offriamo una preziosa e rara raccolta dal 1926 (Anno I) al 1930 (Anno V), quasi completa. Si tratta dell?edizione in folio (mm. 500x365) per gli anni 1926-29 e, in-4 (mm. 360x250), per l?annata 1930, così composta: - 1926 (anno I): n. 1 (14 gen.) - 2 (28 gen.) - 3 (11 feb,) - 8 (3 giu.) - 12/13 (7 ott.) - 14/15 (15 nov.) // "Mancano": nn. 4- 5- 6 -7 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 16/17. - 1927 (Anno II): n. 1/2 (15 febbr.) - 3/4 (21 mar.) - 7/8/9 (30 giu.) - 10/11 (31 lugl.) - 12/13 (30 sett.) - 14/15 (8 nov.) - 16/17 con il Lunario (ultimo num. 20 dic.) // "Manca" n. 5/6. - 1928 (Anno III): n. 1/2 (15 febbr.) - 3/4/5 (15 apr.) - 6/7 (28 magg.) - 8/9 (28 giu.) - 10/11 (24 lugl.) - 12/13 (15 ott.) - 14/15 (30 nov.) - 16/17 (31 dic.). Completo. - 1929 (Anno IV): n. 1 (31 genn.) - 2/3/4 (19 mar.) - 5/6 (17 apr.) - 7/8 (12 magg.) - 9/10 (20 giu.) - 11/12 (1 sett.) - 13/14 (30 sett.) - 15/16 (30 ott.) - 17/18 (ultimo num. 15 dic.). Completo. - 1930 (anno V): n. 1 (9 genn.) - 2/3 (28 febb.) - 4 (15 mar.) - 5/6 (17 apr.) - 7/8 (15 magg.) - 9/10 (giu.) - 11/12 (31 lugl.) - 13 (15 ago.) - 14/15 (15 sett.) - 16/17 (28 ott.) - 18/19 (28 nov.) - 20/21 (30 dic.). Completo. Fondato a Bologna nel 1926, la sua pubblicazione (in formati diversi) si protrasse fino al 1942 a Roma, ma non ebbe mai una periodicità regolare: all'inizio il sottotitolo recava la scritta "?settimanale della gente fascista"", poi ""foglio quindicinale"", più tardi ""foglio mensile"" ed infine, dall'aprile del 1932, semplicemente ""periodico"". L?edizione in folio, impaginato su 4 colonne, si distingue per l?eleganza nella composizione, arricchita dall?uso dei disegni, quasi sempre satirici e, nella prima fase, di mano sia di Longanesi che di Mino Maccari. Con il n. 1 del 9 gennaio 1930 diminuisce il formato e aumenta il numero delle pagg. che passano da 4 a 12. A partire dal marzo 1931 fino al dicembre 1942, l?"Italiano" viene pubblicato in formato ?quaderno?, per un totale di 70 numeri. Le prime 4 annate (nel formato in folio) presentano delle lievi manc. nelle piegature in 6 numeri, mentre il V anno (formato in-4), ha la prima pag. del n. 20 restaur. al marg. infer. per mancanza. Complessivam. esempl. ben conservato. .
