Desoer - Paris, 1927, in-4 plein maroquin parme janséniste, dos à quatre nerfs, large roulette intérieure dorée encadrée d'un double listel de maroquin vert, tête dorée, couvertures et dos conservés. Chemise de protection et étui bordé. Reliure signée J. Van West. Edition illustrée de 39 lithographies originales in et hors-texte par Yves Alix dont une en couverture. Tirage limité à 380 exemplaires, celui-ci un des 320 sur vélin de cuve des papeteries du Marais & de Sainte Marie. Ouvrage réalisé sous la direction de H. Filipacchi. Les lithographies ont été réalisées dans l'atelier de Clot. Talvart et Place T.I 364, première édition illustrée. L'édition originale était parue l'année précédente. Carteret IV-69 "publication très estimée". Yves Alix (1890-1969), originaire de Fontainebleau passe par l'Académie Julian à Paris puis en 1909 rejoint l'Académie Ranson où enseignent Maurice Denis et Pierre Bonnard. Ses premières expositions personnelles se tiennent à partir de 1921 à Paris et à Bruxelles. En 1925 il devient le président de l'Association des peintres et graveurs professionnels. Il est l'ami de Jean-Emile Laboureur, Jacques Villon et André Lhote. Jules-Karel van West (1899-1969) est un relieur belge originaire de Gand. Il ouvre son premier atelier parisien, rue de l'abbé Grégoire à la fin de la première guerre mondiale avec l'aide de sa belle famille. Son épouse, Jeanne Cheffer, fille d'une nièce de Rodin, est issue d'une célèbre famille de graveurs. En 1925, il fait construire une maison-atelier et un petit observatoire astronomique à Saint-Brice-sous-forêt en Seine-et-Oise. Son talent est mis en avant et particulièrement remarqué pour ses reliures décorées lors des ventes de la bibliothèque de Paul Marteau en 1934. Quelques temps plus tard, la reine Elisabeth de Belgique lui offre un poste de maître relieur à la Cambre (Ecole supérieure des arts décoratifs de Bruxelles). Il rejoint son pays natal en 1939 où il est particulièrement réputé pour la maîtrise conjointe de la reliure, la dorure et la dorure sur tranche. Dans sa grande sobriété, l'exemplaire que nous présentons fait montre de cette parfaite maîtrise de cet artisan. Malgré la chemise de protection, on déplore une légère décoloration aux deux extrémités du dos sinon parfait exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Explorer and Fur-trader he wasborn at Three Rivers, Canada, on November 17, 1685, the son of Ren‚Gaultier de Varennes, Governor of Three Rivers. He entered the Frencharmy, and after serving in Canada and in Newfoundland took part in thecampaigns in Flanders. He was severely wounded at the battle ofMalplaquet in 1709; and shortly afterwards returned to Canada. He thenengaged in the fur-trade, first at St. Maurice and later at Lake Nipigon.Here he conceived the idea of pushing westward in search of the WesternSea. He left Montreal for the West in 1731, and in the succeeding yearshe built a chain of fur-trading posts at Rainy Lake, at the Lake of theWoods, at Lake Winnipeg, at the Red River, and on the Assiniboine River.In 1738 he visited the Mandan villages on the Missouri. In 1742 two ofhis sons penetrated far to the south-west, and possibly reached thefoothills of the Rocky Mountains. His operations, however, were notsuccessful from a financial point of view; and in 1743, broken in healthand burdened with debt, he was compelled to return to Montreal to facethe creditors. He died in Montreal on December 5, 1749. In September,1749, he received a belated acknowledgment of his services, was createda Chevalier of St. Louis, and was promoted to the rank of a captain inthe Marine troops. (Wallace/McKay. D.C.B.).

        Pictures of Horses and English Life. With an Appreciation by Lionel Lindsay

      Eyre and Spottiswoode, London 1927 - Munnings, A.J. First Edition. With 28 tipped-in color plates and numerous black and white illustrations. 1 vols. Folio. WITH 2 LETTERS FROM MUNNINGS. A handsome volume, covering the wide range of Munnings's work, from his elaborate oils to a final bit of verse illustrated by amusing sketches; included are some of the colorful studies of gypsy life which brought him his first, early renown. A.J. Munnings (1878-1959) spent his early years in rural Suffolk, worked for a firm of Norwich lithographers and studied at the Norwich School of Art. At the age of twenty he lost the sight of his right eye in an accident, a misfortune that did not stop him from having a long, celebrated and profitable painting career. A lover of the countryside, he was particularly fond of horses, and through his depictions of hunting and racing scenes became the foremost sporting artist of his time and one of the best painters of horses in the history of art. Munnings was not a studio artist--he much preferred setting up his easel out of doors, which, added to his fine draftsmanship, helped keep his work fresh and spontaneous. Munnings was elected to the Royal Academy in 1925, became its president in 1944, received a knighthood and numerous honors. In the words of fellow artist Gerald Kelly, "By his gay exuberance and love of life, [he] attracted friends throughout his long life, although they were exasperated by his headstrong follies and unreasonable temper." This lavish book is both the rich reflection of an artist who was always larger than life, and a testimony to his imperishable achievement. A MONUMENTAL RECORD OF ONE OF THE GREATEST ENGLISH SPORTING ARTISTS.Laid in are 2 two-page ALs by Munnings to Thomas Parker. Reading in part: Are you the man who bought my large picture of Tree & Timber waggon? That was a long time ago. Heavens-you paid me in golden sovereigns-I thought it was a big picture but it was notr so big as all that." Original full vellum, gilt, a.e.g., others uncut With 28 tipped-in color plates and numerous black and white illustrations. 1 vols. Folio [Attributes: First Edition]

        International Protest.

      Paris: 2 February,, 1927. Folio, single leaf. With a custom black cloth folder, and housed in a matching chemise and black quarter morocco slipcase, titles to spine gilt and gilt decoration to front board. A lightly creased, clean sheet. English text of the protest against Samuel Roth's piracy of Ulysses in Two Worlds Monthly. Joyce, frustrated by the slow-moving legal proceedings against Roth, had this protest drawn up, which he revised. More than 167 literary and cultural figures added their names to the protest, including Wyndham Lewis, E. M, Forster, Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, W. B. Yeats, D. H. Lawrence, Virigina Woolf, and T. S. Eliot. It was released to the press on Joyce's birthday, and later reprinted in the April 1927 issue of Transition. The protest turned Roth into a literary pariah but failed to restrain him from printing more instalments. The injunction which Joyce won against Roth on 28 December 1928 only managed to put a temporary stop to his activities: the following year he published a piracy of the novel under the fictitious imprint of "Shakespeare and Company, Paris 1927". This unauthorised edition, effectively the first American edition, was later used as a template by Random House for their 1934 edition, which remained the standard edition in the US until 1961.

        Original pen and ink drawing for Troilus and Criseyde

      1927 - Pen and ink on paper, measuring 8 by 2 3/4 inches, matted and framed. This is Gill's design for a border that appears three times in the Golden Cockerel Press edition of Troilus and Criseyde, and it shows Chaucer sitting in a tree writing "Troilus" in a book. The design appears on pages 179, 243, and 310 of the published work. The drawing is double-matted, and the older, inner mat bears a pencil notation: "Museum study of modern book illustration by Eric Gill," suggesting that the drawing was once part of an exhibit. A fine drawing from one of the highspots of Gill's work as a book illustrator, in a tasteful gilded frame that measures 18 1/4 by 12 1/2 inches (463x317mm). (Skelton P444).

He meets a women en route to catching rattlesnakes for the Bronx Park Zoo and recounts a harrowing and surreal trip to Coney Island that ends with Ford in a ballroom, empty except for a man slowly turning in circles and firing a six-shooter with each hand.

[iv], 118, [2] pp. Illustrated with 104 photographs and 72 plates from drawings, plus one colour plate and one folding "keyboard" colour chart. 8vo., 235 x 155 mm, bound in publisher's yellow cloth with red details and circular photograph in upper corner. Stuttgart: W. Keller & Co., 1927. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. Designed by Johannes Molzahn of Magdeburg for the series "Kosmos-Haus-Bücher," Ein Wohn Haus is an illustrated description of the ideal family home according to German architect Bruno Julius Florian Taut (1880-1938). Modelling the house on his own home, Taut devotes chapters to affordable interior and exterior design including landscaping. The vibrant folding key at the back is lettered, indicating colour schemes on a corresponding floor plan. "An essential part of Taut's work must be seen in his use of color which he had reintroduced to architecture during his Expressionist period. This provided for a great amount of articulation in the visual environment of standardized living units" (H.H. Waechter, Macmillan Encyclopedia of Architects). Junghanns, Bibl. 10. Sharp 129.
