        A Collection of Motivational Poster Cards (Poster Sales Letters)

      Chicago. C.J. Howard. 1927. Collection is contained in original imprinted cardboard C.J. Howard packaging box. 7"x4.75" when closed (horizontal folding card).7"x9.5" when opened. Each card presents a striking Art Deco multicolored lithograph and various coloured borders and decorations printed upon folded heavy card stock. Early in the 1920s Charles Mather, who worked for his family’s Chicago printing house, the Mather Company, took an idea brought to him by one of the firm’s salesmen, Charles Howard Rosenfeld. What Rosenfeld proposed was a series of posters whose focus was to give workers incentive to work better and to work harder. Mather called these prints, “Constructive Organization Posters.” These posters were made to be placed on office and factory walls and were expected to inspire workers to do their best. & Mather sold his posters by subscription and produced more than 300 varieties between 1923 and 1929.In 1925 Rosenfeld and another employee broke from Mather to form their own company, the C. J. Howard Company, to sell incentive cards to be displayed on desks in a re-useable easel. & These cards and posters were printed as multicolored lithographs to produce easily readable images accompanied by tagline messages promoting such admirable qualities as teamwork, punctuality, loyalty, and safety." -Rockwell Museum& & "At the dawn of the 20th century, managers had been skeptical about using visual images as communication tools because their appeals to the emotions contradicted prevailing Protestant notions of self-discipline. By deploying motivational posters and illustrated booklets managers began to loosen their former dependence on rationalism and to explore the potential of aesthetics to regulate the emotional environment. In doing so they honed their abilities to define the “correct” forms of selfhood in the factory and to habituate workers to the kinds of values and behaviors that managers deemed appropriate and necessary for the harmonization of workplace relations. This collection represents Motivational Aesthetics- the design rationales and sales techniques of the Syndicate’s two main companies, Mather (which sold motivational posters) and C.J. Howard (which sold motivational booklets for foremen) as a case study of how managers and motivational specialists honed their abilities to cultivate workplace cooperation in the 1920s. Drawing from recent studies of emotion and affect omne may interpret the post-World War I factory as a realm of aesthetic training where habits and dispositions were actively shaped."-David Gray& & Cards are in Very Fine, pristine condition, retaining their original clarity and luminesence. Box presents repaired splitting to both horizontal sides and various minor rubbing - still quite functional and bright. A stunning and complete gathering of an important component of American Business,Labor and Advertising history. Only one other extant complete collection found - in the holdings of the Smithsonian Institution.

        Sonnets pour Helene

      Paris: Les Livres de Louis Jou. 1927. One of 225 copies on papier verge from a total issue of 258 copies. Page size: 10 7/8 x 7 5/8 "; 26.5 x 19.3 mm. Bound by LOUIS JOU: hand-painted vellum binding the title in red broken by an elaborate intertwining vine in heavy gold gilt, a single vine border repeated at top and bottom of front cover, author and title in red on spine separated with gilt leaves, gilt vine rondel on back panel. Top edge gilt, original wrappers bound in, fine. & Louis Jou (1882-1968), although born in Spain, spent most of his life in Paris creating beautiful books. Calling himself "artisan" not "maitre" Jou was nonetheless a master craftsman and designer of books. His type designs, woodcuts, and printing put him in the front ranks of great printers of the twentieth century. He designed few bindings to accompany his books, but those that do exist attest to his art there as well as on the interior of the book. SONNETS POUR HELENE is printed in red and black throughout and each page has numerous type ornaments and four woodcut initials on each page. The book is a lovely combination of binding and woodcuts and typography from one of the masters. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

        Campagne de l'Uranie (1817-1820)

      Paris,: SociÈtÈ díÈditions GÈographiques, Maritimes et Coloniales, 1927.. Quarto, with 25 plates in colour and black-and-white, map of "L'Ile Rose"; a very good copy, in the original printed wrappers. A very scarce book, published only in limited numbers: the first published version of Rose de Freycinet's voyage journal: the only great voyage account told from a woman's point of view.Rose de Freycinet was smuggled aboard the Uranie, disguised in men's clothing, before the ship left Toulon in 1817. She returned to France three years later as a heroine after a voyage which had taken her to South America, South Africa, Mauritius, West Australia, Timor, the Moluccas, New Guinea, the Carolines, Guam, Hawaii, and New South Wales. They had survived hardships ranging from an attack by Algerian pirates to their shipwreck in the Falklands, when the Uranie was wrecked in French Bay, forcing Freycinet to purchase the American ship Mercury for the return voyage to France.Rose de Freycinet's journal captures her impressions of the adventure and is especially notable for the twenty-five lovely colour plates after original drawings by Arago and Pellion, including several famous Australian scenes. Hill comments that Madame Freycinet's presence caused some disruption among the crew, but she was immensely popular in most of the voyage's ports of call, and is now recognised as one of the great romantic figures of exploration. Although cautious, Freycinet did not hesitate to name Rose Island in the Samoan island chain as well as "Cap Rose" in Shark Bay, after her.Borba de Moraes, I, p. 328 ("very interesting"); Chadenat, 1607; Hill, 652 (in error listing 28 plates).

        White Wings

      Boni & Liveright, New York 1927 - First edition. Introduction by Donald Ogden Stewart. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper but for a small chip on the crown, but with the primarily white jacket bright and fresh. The exceptionally scarce jacket is of interest in its own right as it contains blurbs from Robert Benchley, Edna Ferber, Sidney Howard, Marc Connelly, George Gershwin and several other notables. A fantasy for the stage based on a passage in *Mr. and Mrs. Haddock Abroad*, a humorous book by Barry's friend Donald Ogden Stewart, the expatriate novelist and screenwriter. Barry and Stewart were longtime friends and collaborators. Stewart won an Oscar for his screenplay based on Barry's *Philadelphia Story*, as well as starred in another Barry play, *Holiday*, where he played a character based on himself. According to Brendan Gill: "Stewart received much praise for his skill in depicting himself." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        (Morte d'Arthur). The Birth, Life and Acts of King Arthur of his Noble Knights of the Round Table, their Marvellous Enquests and Adventures, the Achieving of the San Greal, and in the end, le Morte d'Arthur... The text as... Imprinted by William Caxton at Westminster the Year [1485] and now spelled in modern style,  Embellished with many original designs by Aubrey Beardsley. With an Introduction by Professor John Rhys. And a Note on Aubrey Beardsley by Aymer Vallance.

      (London: J.M. Dent & Co.), 1927.. Third edition thus, one of 1,600 copies, 4to, lv, (i), 538 pp. Frontispiece and one other photogravure plate plus 20 further plates (5 folding) and numerous chapter headings and other illustrations in the text, light, mostly marginal, foxing at the beginning and end. Original gilt decorated black cloth, t.e.g., spine ends and corners slightly worn, upper cover with some faint marks, otherwise a bright copy. Originally published 1893-4, this was Beardsley's first major work at the age of 22, intended by the publishers to rival the productions of William Morris' Kelmscott Press. Much of the work shows the influence of Burne-Jones and the Pre-Raphaelites but also takes in elements of Japanese prints and his regard for Whistler. "...if [Beardsley] had never illustrated another book... Le Morte d'Arthur could stand as a monument of decorative book illustration... Some of these designs (he never called his drawings illustrations) stand as models of economy, none is impoverished" (Lewis, The 20th Century Book, pp148-9).

        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de L'Ensorceleuse de Yves Mora.

      Arthème Fayard 1927 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de L'Ensorceleuse de Yves Mora, n°195 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, mai 1927. 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. Magnifique composition, typique de l'art populaire de Starace, utilisant le motif suggestif et mélodramatique de l'enlèvement. 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

        The World Crisis, full set of 6 British editions, mixed printings

      This is a full, mixed printing set of The World Crisis, comprising Thornton Butterworth volumes issued in 1927 and Macmillan & Co. volumes issued in 1941.  The British first edition of Churchill's history of The First World War was originally published by Thornton Butterworth as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a unique position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front; Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty until 1915 and then, after bearing blame for the Dardanelles tragedy, served as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Many consider the British edition, with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page, aesthetically superior to the U.S.  Here is a full set of British mixed printings.  The first four volumes, covering the war years 1911-1918, are all 1927 printings of the British first edition.  1911-1914 is the first edition, seventh printing.  1915 is the first edition, fifth printing.  1916-1918 Part 1 is first edition, second printing.  1916-1918 Part 2 is first edition, fourth printing.   The final two volumes - The Aftermath and The Unknown War - are first edition look-alikes issued by Macmillan, which acquired the rights to several Churchill books after Thornton Butterworth went under in 1940. In 1941, Macmillan issued both The Aftermath and The Unknown War from British first edition plates.  The Unknown War is a quite scarce and collectable edition in its own right; Macmillan issued a single impression of just 600 copies.  Both volumes are similar to their British first edition counterparts and so serve as substitutes when assembling a set.  Overall condition of this set is very good.  All six volumes retain clean and tight original navy cloth bindings with bright spine gilt and quite respectable shelf presentation, with varying degrees of light wear, mostly confined to extremities.  The 1911-1914 and 1915 volumes are notable for exceptionally bright and clean bindings, the 1911-1914 volume bearing transfer browning on the endpapers consistent with dust jacket flaps, indicating that it was likely long protected by its original dust jacket, now lost.  The contents of all six volumes are internally bright.  The sole previous ownership marks in the set are a wartime gift inscription (dated 1945) on the ffep of The Aftermath and a small London bookseller sticker affixed to the front pastedown of the same volume.  Spotting appears confined to the page edges of the first five books with the exception of 1916-1918 Part 1, which shows intermittent internal spotting as well.  The scarcest volume in the set - the Macmillan issue of The Unknown War, is a very good copy.  The binding is square and tight with bright spine gilt, minor wear at extremities, slight wrinkling of the spine cloth, and slight mottling of the cloth at the bottom edge of the front cover.  The contents of The Unknown War show no spotting and no previous ownership marks of any kind, with age-toning of the page edges.  Please note that this large set may require additional postage.

Collaborateur d'Octave-Jacques Gérin, il prend vite son envol, et fonde notamment la présente revue, qui bouleversa les habitudes du milieu de la "réclame" classique et développa la publicité telle que nous la connaissons aujourd'hui. La qualité de cette revue, tant sur le fond que sur la forme (avec la contribution des meilleurs artistes de l'époque), justifie parfaitement la popularité de cette revue, aujourd'hui introuvable. Etat très satisfaisant (avec les très nombreux encarts insérés, 2 ff. débrochés et 1 accroc à un couv., dos frottés, bon état intérieur par ailleurs). Français
