        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de Lluya la fille des Lacs de Gustave Gailhard.

      Arthème Fayard 1926 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de Lluya la fille des Lacs de Gustave Gailhard, n°172 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, juin 1926. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), signées par l'artiste. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier calque monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Surprenante composition, alliant la modernité au fantastique. Starace fait de son apparition des airs une créature féminine influencée par l'art nouveau. A noter que ce roman est cité dans La Nuit des horloges, l'avant-dernier film de Jean Rollin, grand amateur de littérature populaire, Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain Très bon couverture rigide Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Forfaiture » d'André de Lorde et Maurice Landay

      Arthème Fayard 1926 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Forfaiture » d'André de Lorde et Maurice Landay, n°182 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, novembre 1926. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), signées par l'artiste. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier kraft monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Il s'agit de l'adaptation littéraire du film de Cecil B. DeMille réalisé en 1915. Starace choisit pour cette impressionnante couverture la scène-clé, audacieuse, de ce mélodrame : Edith Hardy, épouse de la Haute société empêtrée dans des pertes d'argent, marquée par le poinçon du collectionneur dépité Haka Arakau, à qui elle s'était promise en échange d'un prêt et à qui elle se refuse. On peut reconnaître dans le personnage masculin les traits du comédien Sessue Hayakawa. Au cinéma, la séquence, d'un érotisme chargé et pervers, avait marqué les esprits, dont le critique Louis Delluc. La couverture de Starace joue sur cette référence populaire. Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur.

Gray cloth over boards, title and decorations stamped in blue onto top board and spine, 8vo (7-3/8 x 5 inches), pp. [viii], 309, [310], all edges trimmed. Heavy yellow paper dust jacket with dark blue printing and illustration of a castle - as on top board, and subtitled "A Love Story of the North Woods" on the spine panel. Volume with foot of spine softened, small sticker ghost top ffep, ink inscription to front pastedown, else about fine. DJ with very tiny chips at flap folds and head of spine, small chips at foot of spine with rubbing and darkening and two closed tears (1-1/2" & 2") at foot of spine folds. "Copyright / CANADA, 1926 / BY McCLELLAND & STEWART, LIMITED / TORONTO." and "THE HUNTER-ROSE CO. LIMITED / TORONTO" on the copyright page, with no indication of additional printings (the second Canadian edition states "Second Printing, December, 1926"). Ads page [v], showing "BY THE SAME AUTHOR" titles up to only "EMILY CLIMBS" (pub. 1925), which immediately preceded "The Blue Castle". DJ back panel with ads for Montgomery's books up to "MAGIC FOR MARIGOLD" (pub. 1929), rear flap showing ads for "Books by MARIAN KEITH" and "Books by H.A. CODY" advertising titles published up until 1929 ("LISBETH OF THE DALE" and "UNDER SEALED ORDERS"). Thus, an early state of the Canadian edition text, bound in a later state casing (first edition binding lacked the castle illustration and was bound in grey cloth) with a later state dust jacket - assume 1929-33 (pastedown inscription dated 1933). Also of note is an early state binding spine treatment, with the volume's spine lacking the "A Love Story of the North Woods" statement (added to the spine of later McClelland & Stewart printings) which is however, printed onto the DJ spine. Published simultaneously with the Stokes U.S. edition in 1926, THE BLUE CASTLE is the only one of Montgomery's novels not set wholly or in part on Prince Edward Island and her only novel for adults.

        Gypsy Life Of Betsy Wood

      Dent, UK, 1926. First Edition. Binding: Hardcover (Original Cloth). Illustrator: Garside John. Book Condition: Very Good . Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket. A Biography of Gypsy Woman Betsy Wood. It is of a granddaughter of Abram Wood, celebrated in a well-known Welsh englyn, Alabaina the daughter of the harpist Valentine, that Betsy Wood is herself a grandchild.'It is now nearly thirty years since I first met this gifted Gypsy woman at Beaumaris, where I was struck by her high intelligence and vast store of Gypsy and gentile folk-lore. Whether she herself shared the belief in the extraordinary superstitions, which in Romani in Welsh, or in English she would pour forth with such vividness as to thrill and astound the hearer, I never knew or sought to know. Suffice it to say that whatever drops of gentile blood ran in her veins, I have seldom encountered anyone who embodied more fully the true Gypsy spirit. She could read faces and the thoughts behind them at a glance, and had she adopted drukeriben as a profession like most of her Romany sisters, would certainly have excelled in the art of fortune-telling, long ago defined by old Syforella Wood as o bita bakh-tiben to dias 'men o beng (" the little gift with which the Devil has endowed us"). It was in Betsy's later days at Earlstown and at Prestatyn that Miss Lyster, the writer of this charming memoir, became Mrs. Wood's attached friend, and winning her full confidence as few others might, secured from her this idyllic picture of a Gypsy's life.'

        Heyward thanks a book reviewer who compliments his portrayal of the soul of ìthe primitive negro, uneducated, and unspoiled by contaminationî in ìPorgyî ñ ìan everlasting delightful bookÿî

      Typed Letter Signed ìDuBose Heyward,î 1p, 8.5î x 11î. Charleston, S.C., March 5, 1926. To writer David Warren Ryder, The San Francisco Review. Light toning at edges. Fine condition. On February 14, 1926, Ryder wrote Heyward, in part, ìThe primitive negro, uneducated, and unspoiled by contamination, has always been a subject of fascinating interest to me; and your portrayal of his soul in ëPorgyí is in its excellence beyond anything I have ever read. I shall take pleasure in reviewing the book for our little group of readers Ã? You may be sure that I shall spread the glory of ëPorgyí about amongst my friends and acquaintances. It is, I repeat, an everlasting delightful bookÃ?î Ryder also asks Heyward ìwhat other books you have written. In some way I have got the notion that you are the author of a book of poemsÃ?î Ryderís retained carbon is present. Heywardís reply, in full, ìPlease let me thank you for the friendly impulse that prompted you to write your recent letter about ëPorgyí. I am more than pleased that you like the book and will appreciate any word that you may say for it in your paper. I have previously published two volumes of poetry: ëCarolina Chansonsí, in collaboration with Hervey Allen, and ëSkylines and Horizonsí, both through the Macmillan Company. If you will write to Miss Hutchinson, publicity Department of The Macmillan Company, and ask for the books for review in your magazine, I am sure that she will be glad to send you copies. With kindest regards, and assuring you again of my appreciation of your interestÃ?î ìPorgyî was adapted by Heywardís wife Dorothy into a 1927 play which inspired the 1935 opera ìPorgy and Bessî with music by George Gershwin.

Hart Crane's own copy of his first book, with his later ownership Signature: "Hart Crane, Aug. '31" and his bookplate on the front pastedown. Apparently Hart Crane's mother either gave away or sold some of his bookplates shortly after his death to Crane's good friend, the bookseller Samuel Loveman, thus resulting in occasional "association copies" surfacing. However, all of the books that we have seen Signed by him (with the exception of the Signed edition of The Bridge) were from his personal library. .

        Television. Very fine copy in very fine dust jacket

      Pitman London: Pitman, 1926. First edition. First Book on Television in English: Superb CopyDinsdale, Alfred. Television: Seeing by wireless. 8vo. 62pp. London: W. S. Caines for Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, 1926. 186 x 125 mm. Original printed paper boards, pictorial dust-jacket. Very fine copy. Boxed.First Edition of the first book in English on television. Dinsdale discusses the technical challenges faced by early experimenters (Jan van Szczepanik, Boris Rosing, Denoys von Kihaly and others), but focuses primarily on the work of the Scottish engineer John Logie Baird (1888-1946), the first person to produce televised pictures of objects in motion. In February 1924 Baird produced the first television image in outline, and in April 1925 he transmitted the first pictures between two televisions. By the following October Baird had succeeded in transmitting images with gradations of light and shade, and on January 27, 1926, he successfully transmitted recognizable human faces between two rooms by television. Of Baird's early experiments, Dinsdale writes: "Baird's weird apparatus-old bicycle sprockets, biscuit tins, cardboard discs and bullseye lenses, all tied together with sealing wax and string-failed to impress those who were accustomed to the shining brass and exquisite mechanism of the instrument maker. The importance of the demonstration was, however, realized by the scientific world . . ." (p. 49). Although he did not succeed in producing a viable system of television, Baird paved the way for future technical developments. Television reached a state of technical feasibility in 1931, and the first high-definition broadcasting system was launched in London in 1936 by the BBC.The copy we are offering is in nearly pristine condition, and is the finest copy we have seen in our four decades in business. The Richard Green copy, with a tape repair on the back panel of the dust-jacket and some minor rubbing, sold at Christie's on June 17, 2008 for $16,250.00.
