        Insectes. Vingt planches en phototypie coloriées au patron donnant quatre-vingts insectes et seizes compositions decoratives

      Paris, Du Chartre et van Buggenhoudt, (1926).. Folio (45,5 x 32,5 cm). 2 typographische Bll. (Titel & Tafelverzeichnis) and 20 photolithographische Tafeln mit hervorragendem Pochoirkolorit. Lose Blatt (wie erschienen) in mit Bindebändern verschließbarer Mappe, diese auf dem Vorderdeckel mit einer montierten lithographischen Titelillustration. Titelblatt mit winzigen Läsuren im äußersten unteren Blattrand (formatbedingt, das Titelblatt ist geringfügig größer als die Mappe und stand daher über). Ansonsten in hervorragendem Zustand. Erste Ausgabe. Sehr selten. - Nissen, ZBI 3796. - Vollständiges Exemplar mit allen 20 Tafeln (obwohl das Tafelverzeichnis nur 16 aufführt und die letzten vier Tafeln mit der stilisierten Anwendung der zuvor abgebildeten Insekten im Ornament unterschlägt). In absolut ungewöhnlichem Großformat gehaltene Abbildungen von Insekten in exzellentem und vor allem auch zoologisch exaktem Kolorit. Widmet sich sämtlichen Genera der Insekten bis auf Schmetterlinge und Falter, zu denen der Verfasser ein eigenes Werk publiziert hatte. Die Tafeln zeigen Zikaden (1-2), Hornkäfer (3-4), Wespen und Bienen (5-6), Orthoptera, d.s. Heuschrecken, Grashüpfer etc. (7-8), Libellen und Schwebfliegen (9-10), Käfer (11-15), Spitzkopfzikaden (16) sowie ihrer Anwendung im dekorativen Ornament (16-20). - Über den Verfasser und Künstler Séguy ist bis heute wenig bekannt, obgleich er mehrere ähnliche, allesamt seltene Werke zur Dekorativen Kunst im Stil des Art Deco veröffentlichte. Vermutlich aufgrund seiner Werke zu Insekten (dem hier vorliegenden und jenem zu den Lepidopteren) wird er oft mit dem Entomologen Eugène Séguy (1890-1985) verwechselt, der jedoch in keiner Weise als Künstler in Erscheinung getreten ist. Ungeachtet fehlender Informationen zur Biographie Séguys erlangten jedoch alle seine Arbeiten eine enorme Bedeutung für die Ausbildung des Art Deco und werden heute zu dessen Meisterleistungen gezählt. In Rays Monographie zum Art Deco in Frankreich heißt es denn auch: “In comparison with their (i.e. Séguy’s works) variety and brilliance, much Art Deco illustration seems pallid and constrained.” (Ray, The Art Deco Book in France). - ENGLISH: Large-folio (45,5 x 32,5 cm). 2 typographic leaves (title & plate index) and 20 photolithographic plates with pochoir-colouring. Loose sheets as issued in original portfolio with ties, and with illustrated title lable mounted on front board. Titlepage shows even browning and minor fraying to outermost right margin. Else in fine to mint condition. First edition. Very rare. – Nissen: Die Zoologische Buchillustration. No. 3796. – A fine complete copy with all 20 plates – the index calling only for 16 plates, not stating the ornamental designs on the last four plates. Amazing large scale compositions of insects in bright colours, devoted to all generas of insects except for butterflies, on which Séguy had published a separate work. The plates are as decorative as scientifically exact, and display cicadas (pl. 1-2), longhorn beetles (3-4), wasps & bees (5-6), locusts, grasshoppers, orthoptera (7-8), dragonflies & damselflies (9-10), beetles (11-15), plant-hoppers (16) and their application to ornamental patterns (17-20). Until today very little is known about the artist, although he had published a few more works on decorative arts. Probably for the wide appreciation of this work on insects he is very often mixed up with the entomologist Eugène Séguy (1890-1985), who never published on arts at all. Nevertheless, all of Séguy’s works gained an enormous influence on the transition of the Art Nouveau to Art Deco and are today considered masterpieces of decorative arts: “In comparison with their (i.e. Séguy’s works) variety and brilliance, much Art Deco illustration seems pallid and constrained.” (Ray, The Art Deco Book in France).

      London: Mills & Boon. (1926). First. First edition. Octavo. 136, 16 ads pp., plates. Green cloth. A slight bump on the front board, very good or better without dustwrapper. Inscribed by one of the co-authors: "To George Standing in grateful remembrance of the pleasure of meeting. Clarence N. Bruce. Jan. 1928." Not to be confused with either tennis or squash, rackets or racquets is an indoor racquet sport played in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. The sport is infrequently called "hard rackets," possibly to distinguish it from the related sport of squash (formerly called "squash rackets"). Both authors were rackets champions and the recipient, George Standing, was the head professional at the New York Racket and Tennis Club, and was runner-up for the World Championship in 1897. .

        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.
