This edition of Lamia, Isabelle, & The Eve of St. Agnes was beautifully illustrated by Robert Gibbings (1889–1958), a leader of the wood engraving revival who was commissioned to produce two volumes for the Golden Cockerel Press before buying it outright when its founder, Harold Taylor, became ill with tuberculosis. "The press was at Waltham St Lawrence, in Berkshire. With Gibbings as its director and book designer it produced seventy-two books between 1924 and 1933, of which nineteen were illustrated by Gibbings himself. Forty-eight of its productions were illustrated with wood-engravings. Among the engravers whom Gibbings employed—several of whom were given their first commissions by him—were John Nash, David Jones, Eric Ravilious, Blair Hughes-Stanton, John Farleigh, and, most notably, Eric Gill…" (ODNB). A beautiful copy of this handsomely designed volume.

      Di questa celebrata e intramontabile rivista mensile illustrata, offriamo la raccolta di "tutto il pubblicato" dal gennaio 1928 (Anno I, n, 1) al dicembre 1995 (n. 629). Casabella può essere descritta attraverso la storia delle variazioni dei suoi nomi: - 1928/1929: "La Casa bella. Arti e industrie de l'arredamento" e poi "Rivista per gli amatori de La Casa bella", edita dallo Studio Editoriale Milanese. Diretta da G. Marangoni. (in 24 numeri) - 1930/1932 (dal n. 25 al 60): "La Casa bella". Direzione di A. Bonfiglioli. - 1933/1937 (dal 61 al 120): "Casabella.

Pagano. - 1940/1943 (dal 145 al 191/192): "Costruzioni Casabella. Rivista mensile di architettura e di tecnica". A Pagano si affianca F. Matricardi, redattore capo. La rivista cessa le pubblicazioni su imposizione del Ministero per la cultura popolare nel dicembre 1943 (con il n. 191/192), dopo che Pagano era già stato imprigionato e deportato. - Casabella riprende nel 1946 con il titolo: "Costruzioni. Rivista mensile", diretta da F. Albini e G. Palanti (alcune copp. sono disegnate da A. Steiner). I numeri pubblicati sono: 193 - 194 - 195/198 (4 fascic. in 1) dedicati a Pagano. - Dal 1947 al 1953 la rivista non viene pubblicata. - 1953/1964: in dicembre (n. 199) riprendono le pubblicazioni, con il titolo: "Casabella Continuità. Rivista internazionale di architettura". Con il n. 223 (1959) varia il sottotitolo: "Rivista internazionale di architettura e urbanistica". Direzione di E.N. Rogers.

      (London, c. 1928). Small quarto. 33pp. Signed by Alberto Sangorski. A unique manuscript on vellum, designed, illuminated, and calligraphed by Sangorski. A stunning work containing the title poem and five others: "To the River," "Dream Land," "The Sleeper," "To One in Paradise," and "Fairy Land." With an illuminated full-page frontispiece portrait of Poe elaborately framed in a colorful floral border with cherubs at each corner. The title-page is decorated with a large initial "A," the open portion of which frames a portrait of Annabel Lee, and a full border in burnished gold. The manuscript also contains four full-page illuminations and three half-page or smaller illuminations; sixteen large initials, some with full borders and others with intricate border extensions in gilt, blue, green, white, and black; and twelve similar small initials. Leaves separated by silk guards. In an exquisite binding of full morocco by Riviere and Son, studded with a total of thirty-five jewels including twenty-four seed pearls, seven rubies, and four amethysts. The upper cover features a sunken ovular panel of green morocco, and on top of this a three-dimensional onlay of brown morocco in the design of an eagle, the eye of which is formed by a small ruby. The eagle is perched atop a brown and turquoise shield bearing the author's initials in gilt. The green background panel is decorated with a field of gilt stars at the eagle's head and an intricate floral design, also gilt, spreading out below the eagle's wings. The remainder of the front cover is decorated with a floral pattern of brown, green, yellow, and red morocco against a purple background. An outer border contains a flower-and-vine design amid dense pointillé within ten panels of intersecting strapwork. The panels are demarcated with ten evenly spaced onlays of red morocco, which are set with the various jewels, the four largest, the amethysts, at the corners. The back cover features an oval center piece of turquoise morocco, lettered in gilt with the titles of the six poems. This is set within a narrow framing device of brown morocco, which in turn is framed by a large ovular inlay of turquoise morocco adorned with maroon and blue flowers. The whole is set within a red morocco frame intricately gilt decorated with a repeating flower-and-stem design and elaborate corner pieces of purple, yellow, green, and blue morocco. Spine in six compartments, gilt lettered in two and with floral design amid pointillé in the others. Light brown morocco doublures with an interweaving floral and strapwork border of variously colored morocco inlays. A.e.g. All in all, this is a gorgeous work of the highest artistry and craftsmanship both inside and out, similar to the Keats volume created by the same team. Extremely fine in a green morocco box, the spine of which is separated from the box's bottom compartment, and which shows some rubbing to the leather and one small closed tear.

        IL ETAIT UNE PETITE PIE (There was a Little Magpie)

      Paris, Edition Jeanne Bucher., 1928. MIRO, JOAN (1893-1983). HIRTZ, LISE. IL ETAIT UNE PETITE PIE (THERE WAS ONCE A SMALL MAGPIE)Drawings in color by Joan Miro. A folio of 8pp. of pochoir prints. Enclosed in the ORIGINAL LINEN FOLIOin pearl grey background, with black and green letters and lined with black paper. 11 5/8 x 10 5/8 x 5/8. RARE. Enclosed in a black linen contemporary clam shell box. Her first publication was as Lisa Hirtz: Il était une petite pie [There was a little magpie] (with 8 pochoirs by Joan Miró) in 1928. She was the editor of Le Phare de Neuilly, which frequently published articles relating to surrealism.Miro created one of the most imaginative books for children and far beyond its time. Joan Miro was studying art in Barcelona.He moved to Paris in 1919, he was introduced to a surrealists group in 1924 by his neighbor Andre Masson, who shared his studio. He found among these artists the inspiration necessary for his work. But it was his humor that dominated his creations, especially the black humor of the surrealists. In August 1927 Paul Eluard sent Miro the poems of Lisa Hirtz (born Ann - Marie Meyer), a friend of Breton. She was married to Paul Deharme (1898-1934), one of the pioneers of Radio France. Her first publication was as Lisa Hirtz: Il était une petite pie [There was a little magpie] (with 8 pochoirs by Joan Miró) in 1928. She was the editor of Le Phare de Neuilly, which frequently published articles relating to surrealism. In October 1927 Miro completed the gouaches, a part of which would be executed for the 8 plates of this book. Jeanne Bucher (1872-1946) completed the book in 1928. The artistic involvement of the editor was an integral part of the work of preserving the creation of the avant-garde. Lisa Hirtz published Une Petite Pie in Pierre Chareau's gallery, where she had opened her bookstore in 1925. Her interest in children's books was inspired by her grandson, Pierre. Eight gouaches were executed for the colored in plates which were created by Saudet. Edition is limited to 300 copies. Printed on Arches. Signed and dedicated by Lise Hirtz to Jane de Margerie.
