        La mort de Circé ou la revanche du cochon

      1928 - [3]ff., 12 planches, Paris, François Bernouard, 1928, in-folio, [3]ff, 12 planches, l'ensemble monté sur onglets, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, Tirage comprenant une suite des 12 magnifiques compositions de Paul Iribe. Un des 2000 exemplaires avec les illustrations sur papier pelure contrecollées ; celui-ci, non justifié, porte le tampon d'Iribe indiquant "hommage de l'auteur". Cet ouvrage étonnant comporte plusieurs critiques de la part de l'illustrateur Paul Iribe (1883-1935) : la première d'entre elles est une charge contre le cubisme, manifeste dès la première planche qui figure la mort, "regrettable d'ailleurs", de la magicienne Circé, qui avait métamorphosé les compagnons d'Ulysse en pourceaux. "Circé incarne pour Iribe la ligne courbe et l'esthétique fin-de-siècle au sein de laquelle il fit oeuvre, le cochon l'expansion déraisonnée de la géométrie et du cubisme qu'il abhorre" ; l'album est par ailleurs dédiée "A Sircé". Réalisé au retour des États-Unis, La mort de Circé sonne également le glas de l'aventure hollywoodienne et de la collaboration avec le réalisateur Cecil B. DeMille ; Iribe démontre son ressentiment à l'égard des américains et mais également, tel Ulysse qui rentre de son Odyssée malheureuse, à bord du paquebot "l'Île est Vilaine"- comprendre Manhattan - envers sa Pénélope qu'il retrouve endormie auprès de son amant. Dos factice, couverture salie. Petites déchirures sans manques à quelques planches. Paul Iribe, précurseur de l'art déco, Mairie de Paris, Bibliothèque Fornay, Hôtel de Sens, 1983, n° 265. Mythes de la décadence sous la direction d'Alain Montandaon, PU Blaise Pascal, 2001, pp. 119-120. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Upon graduation, he joined Punch Magazine and published plays, screenplays, poems and 18 novels. However, it is for the work written for his son Christopher Milne, and illustrated by E.H. Shepard, that his fames endures. Payne IA, IIA, IIIA & IVA

        Innermost Asia, Detailed Report of Explorations in Central Asia, Kan-Su and Eastern Iran: carried out and described under the orders of H.M. Indian Government, Vol. I Text; Vol. II Text; Vol. III Plates and Plans

      The Clarendon Press at Oxford 1928 - Extremely scarce in the trade (only one additional set of these three volumes available at this time). Under the orders of the Indian Government, Sir Marc Aurel Stein (November 26, 1868-October 26, 1943), K.C.I.E., Director of the Indian Archaeological Survey, assembled a major travel and exploration junket to and through Central Asia and Inner Mongolia from 1913 to 1916, being the third of four major episodes of reconnaissance. Stein was an amateur archaeologist, but a quite competent ethnologist, too, and geographer, linguist and surveyor. A four-volume account of his travels and their findings from this four-year study resulted, published in 1928 by the Clarendon Press, Oxford. Available here are the first three volumes. In addition to the texts he provided in the first two volumes, descriptive lists of antiques collected were provided by F.H. Andrews and F.M.G. Lorimer, with Appendices being provided a cadre of catalogers: J. Allan E. Benveniste, A.H. Francke, L. Giles, R.L. Hobson, T.A. Joyce, S. Konow, A. von Le Coq, W. Lentz, S. Levi, H. Maspero, F.E. Pargiter, R. Smith, W.J. Sollas, R.C. Spiller, F.W. Thomas, and V. Thomsen. Handsomely bound in brown cloth, with gilt stamped lettering to covers and spines, and with a lovely gilt illustration to the middle of each cover. Paste-downs are quite sturdy and unsoiled, the text blocks are clean and tight, with only slight (understandable) waviness to text. Previous owner's inscription, neatly rendered, to all three volumes at first free endpaper. Comprises well over 500 plates, most of which are remarkable for their clarity and distinctness. The much-sought-after Atlas volume (Volume IV) comprises 52 maps, not present here. Volume I is xxxix + 547 pp. in length. The volume shows moderate wear to covers, some darkening and dust-soiling to fore-edge, bumping to three tips and a scuffing to rear bottom tip, also seemingly stained by coffee, affecting the tips to the final 20 or so pages, not even remotely affecting text. Volume II is sharp and handsome, in length, xii + 569-1159 pp. Volume III, comprising "Plates and Plans," is xi + ~505 pages of plates, unpaginated. Bumping to spine heads and feet, but minimally so. Overall, an attractive, handsomely produced, tightly bound, tank-like set of three volumes of a monumental work of archaeology, architecture, photography, travel and documentation. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
