      Vingt-sept illustrations dessinées et gravées à l'eau-forte en couleurs et en noir par Gaston Bussière, nombreuses lettres ornées en couleurs et or, un des 350 exemplaires sur beau vélin teinté d'Arches, contenant un état de toutes les illustrations, numéroté et paraphé par l'éditeur, 1 vol. grand in-8 reliure demi-maroquin à coins bordeaux, dos à 4 nerfs orné et mosaïqué, tête dorée, couv. et dos conservés, reliure signée de Semet et Plumelle, Librairie des Amateurs, A. Ferroud, F. Ferroud successeur, 1927, 130 pp. Exemplaire parfait, d'une beauté tout à fait exceptionnelle. L'illustrateur Gaston Bussière atteint ici à l'apogée de son talent, et la splendide reliure de Semet & Plumelle lui procure un écrin à sa mesure. Un feuillet inséré par Ferroud précise : "En raison du décès accidentel de Gaston Bussière, qui dessinait et gravait lui-même ses planches, il n'y en aura que trois. Par déférence pour la mémoire de l'artiste, nous avons préféré qu'aucun nom ne vint s'ajouter à son nom. Simplement, à la place des deux eaux-fortes manquant, on trouvera, à la fin du volume, la reproduction de deux croquis [ ... ] Abeille est l'oeuvre principale de Gaston Bussière. Nous la jugeons d'un ensemble remarquable, notre regretté Bussière étant, parmi nos illustrateurs, l'un des plus délicats, des plus consciencieux et des plus savants". Conte classique, Abeille évoque l'aventure de la petite fille de la duchesses des Clarides, élevée avec le fils de la comtesse de Blanchelande. Abeille sera enlevée par Loc, le roi des Nains, et Georges retenu par la reine des Ondines, mais leur amour triomphera des embûches.

        The Ordinance of The Most Select Excellent and Dauntless Company of Archers

      Kibbo Kift, London 1927 - Twelve pages of original typed corrected and with red underlining of the Kibbo Kift Archers led by accomplished archer raymond Dixon, Deputy Head Man. The organisation was founded by the charismatic Englishman John Hargrave (aka 'White Fox'), artist, author and Boy Scout Commissioner for Woodcraft and Camping, who had become disenchanted with the increasingly militaristic tendency in the Scout movement after World War I. Hargrave was promptly expelled from the Scouts by Scout founder Robert Baden-Powell. With a small group of like-minded, dissident, anti-war Scoutmasters and Scoutmistresses under his own direct leadership, he set about building an alternative and very different movement. Baden-Powell expelled Hargrave with extreme reluctance, and only after some wealthy backers had threatened to withdraw funding from the Scouts unless he was expelled. The Kibbo Kift (archaic Kentish dialect for 'proof of great strength'[2]) has been described as 'the only genuine English national movement of modern times' and was certainly very different from Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts. Based on the woodcraft principles of naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton that had been a key part of the early Scout programme, the Kibbo Kift was to be not merely a youth organisation but was to involve all ages and, very daring for the times, it was open to both sexes. The ideas of world peace and the regeneration of urban man through the open-air life replaced the nationalism and militarism Hargrave had detested in the post-World War I Scouts. Kinsmen and women were organised in Clans, Tribes and Lodges. Each individual took a 'woodcraft name', inspired by their ideas of 'Indian-style' names. The correct costume had to be hand-made by each individual or 'rooftree' (family group) and while the everyday 'habit' of Saxon hood, jerkin, shorts and long cloak must have seemed outlandish enough in the English countryside of the early 1920s; for ceremonial occasions, brilliantly coloured surcoats or silk-embroidered robes were worn by the various office-holders such as the Tallykeeper, Campswarden, Ritesmaster and Gleeman. Hargrave himself was 'Head Man' and his leadership was dynamic, inspirational and frankly autocratic. The Mark of the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift is typical of the symbolism that can be seen in many of their designs. Its meaning is: Worship (The K sign) Forever (the Circle of Unity and Eternity) Life (the Flame) through Knowledge (the Tree). Or again, ‘Worship Life Forever with Knowledge’. The Kibbo Kift's central activities of hiking and camping were refined and elevated to the level of a spiritual exercise. The weekend 'Tribal' Camps and the great annual 'Althing' were marked by colourful and impressive ritual, inspired by their ideas of what Native American ceremonies might be like, but couched in language reminiscent of the Norse Sagas and rich in Saxon archaisms. Kinsmen were not only required to make their own lightweight, one-man hiking tents (the first seen in England) but to decorate them with vivid, symbolic designs of their own devising. Influenced by Hargrave's own artistic taste, an ultra-modern 'futurist' style of design became general, and the robes, regalia, tents and other items of decorative art, often of an extremely high standard, represent an extraordinary 'democratisation' of the avant-garde art of the day. The Kibbo Kift were never more than a few hundred strong. Kinsmen and Kinswomen included the Suffragettes Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, Mary Neal and May Billinghurst, the journalist Henry Nevinson, the photographer Angus McBean, and Ruth Clark. The Advisory Committee included Havelock Ellis, Maurice Maeterlinck, the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, H. G. Wells and Professor Julian Huxley. D. H. Lawrence took an interest in the Kindred and it has been suggested that Mellors in Lady Chatterley's Lover is based on an archetypal Kinsman. The growth of the Kibbo Kift was not without its setbacks. In 1924, the South London co-operative [Attributes: First Edition]

        LE MORTE D'ARTHUR...Introduction by Prof. Rhys and a note on Aubrey Beardsley by Aymer Vallance

      London and New York: J. M. Dent and Sons, Aldine House and E.P Dutton and Co., 1927. Third and most complete edition, limited to 1600 copies, with 10 extra illustrations not included in the two first printings. 22 full page and double-page illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley including the fine frontispiece, the Merlin drawing and the design for the original cover, also with numerous designs and illustrations throughout the text, as well as a profusion of decorated initials and chapter headings. Thick, large 4to, publisher’s original black polished cloth with spine and covers beautifully and fully decorated in gilt after designs by Beardsley. lv, 538 pp. A very handsome, superior copy, beautifully preserved, the cloth bright with strong gilt and no fading. The textblock very clean and crisp, the hinges tight and strong, corners sharp, only the most minute bit of age evidence along the tips or extremities. AN IMPORTANT PRINTING OF THIS VERY BEAUTIFUL BOOK, and this a very desirable and strong copy. The third edition contains an extra 10 illustrations added in the text, the first edition to do so, as well as the original binding design (which was never used) and a full size facsimile of the Merlin drawing, previously used on a smaller scale. The text is that of Caxton’s printed for the first time in 1485 at Westminster in London. This book represents Aubrey Beardsley's first commissioned work, undertaken when he was not yet twenty. While working at an insurance office in London, Beardsley frequently visited the Jones and Evans bookshop in Cheapside, where he got to know Frederick Evans. Mr. Evans allowed the artist to trade drawings for books on occasion, and it was Evans who suggested to J. M. Dent that Beardsley should be the artist for Mr. Dent's new edition of the Arthurian tales. A suggestion well made and one to which 20th century printing owes much. The commission, which came in 1892 was to “design and illustrate an ambitious edition of Malory’s ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’ which was intended to rival the Kelmscott Press books on their own ground...(E)lements beside the pale remnants of Pre-Raphaelitism were at work fertilizing (Beardsley’s) developing talent, and what was seen by its devisers as an emulation of Morris and Burne-Jones turned out in the execution more like a parody of them--a parody which annoyed Morris to the point at which he contemplated legal action. It may well not have been a deliberate parody: it is simply that already, willy-nilly, the ‘strong medieval decorative feeling’ of Morris was mixed, as Walter Crane noted, ‘with a curious weird Japanese-like spirit of diablerie and grotesque, as of an opium dream’.” Beardsley’s life was short, he died of tuberculosis at the age of 26. In those few years he managed however to leave a great and lasting artistic legacy and a fascinating personal history as well.

        The Exile: no. 1 - 4.

      Dijon: Maurice Darantiere; [then] Chicago: Pascal Covici; [then] New York: Covici Friede,, 1927-8. 4 volumes, small octavo. Original red (volume 2 orange) card wrappers printed in black. Spines a little sunned, very light rubbing to the corners, a truly excellent set. First editions, all published, with the scarce first number in the first issue, in exquisite condition, and uncut. This is a compelling association set; the fourth number has the blind stamp "Brunnenburg, Tirolo (Merano), Italia". Brunnenburg castle became the home of Pound's daughter (with the violinist Olga Rudge) Mary de Rachewiltz and her husband the Egyptologist Boris de Rachewiltz. After Pound's return from the United States he stayed with his daughter at Brunnenburg in 1958, and wrote the last 6 of his 116 Cantos there. Pound's modernist literary magazine, Exile, was begun in self-imposed exile, the first number being printed by Darantiere (the printer of Ulysses) and issued by Pound to America and the UK from the European continent. Pound then moved the publication to Chicago, and, for the last number, to New York. The four issues of The Exile include work by Richard Aldington, Ernest Heminway, W. B. Yeats, William Carlos Williams and many others.
