        22 ETUDES ART DECO DECORS REGIONAUX BRETAGNE, PAYS BASQUE, CAMARGUE & autres POUR LA MANUFACTURE DE SEVRES 1925/30

      ADRIEN AUGUSTE LEDUC 1930 - 22 ETUDES PREPARATOIRES ART DECO REPRESENTANT DIVERSES REGIONS dont la BRETAGNE, LE PAYS BASQUE, la CAMARGUE, BERRY, ALSACE, contrecollés sur 10 feuillets 21/29.7cm. - LEDUC Adrien Auguste ; manufacture de Sèvres. Décorateur ; chef du laboratoire ; formes et décors à la MANUFACTURE DE SEVRES entre 1919-1954. - De l’Art Déco à l’abstraction. Le courant Art Déco s’impose à Sèvres avec l’arrivée d’une jeune équipe d’artistes. De cette collaboration naissent d’autres créations très fortement liées aux tendances du style 19 caractérisant la période de l’entre deux guerres. Ainsi, le décorateur Jean Beaumont n’hésite pas à mélanger les tons primaires et apporte un style neuf par son interprétation florale moderne. Les décorateurs, à l’exemple d’Adrien LEDUC, Maurice Herbillon, ou encore la créatrice Anne-Marie Fontaine, participent à cet élan. A la fin des années 30, l’ornement est jugé trop envahissant L’adoption des motifs géométriques vient chasser les effets naturalistes des décors floraux. Dans les années d'après guerre, les artistes Jacques Despierre et Camille Hillaire insufflent un nouveau style de décor à Sèvres au moment où le courant de l’abstraction tend à restreindre la place du florilège et en livrer une nouvelle interprétation. Un retour au décor classique floral qui a toujours illustré la renommée de Sèvres s’impose en s’adaptant au goût de l’époque. Mots clés : [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Wenn ich Bonnard auch bat, die Lithographien so zu machen, daß sie technisch den Radierungen ähneln, so hatte ich doch übersehen, daß die Kupferplatte auf dem Papier einen dunkleren Rand hinterläßt als die Lithographie.ich sah mich also gezwungen, die Radierung geschlossen an das Ende des Buches zu setzen.“ Das sind insges. 19 Radierungen, auf 2 Tafeln zusammengefaßt, sowie eine dritte Tafel mit 14 weiteren Radierungen, die – wie es Heißt – in dem Werk keine Verwendung gefunden haben („ non utilisées dans cet ouvrage “).

        POETRY ARCHIVE Of WINONA MONTGOMERY GILLILAND. Including Typescript Poems, Publications, and Two Photographs

      Mooresville, IN, et al.: (various), (various). Circa 1930 - 1950. Dark brown three-ring binder stamped "Supplements. The Seeforth Service"; teal cloth book in tan dj printed in black; wrappered magazines. Tears to binding holes of two typescript leaves; occasional minor soil or edgewear; occasional pencil notations and corrections; binder worn. Book lightly damp-stained to bottom edge of boards and some leaves, spotting/soil to endpapers and few leaves; in Poor dj (panels split and damp-stained, loss to spine and edges). Average general wear to magazines, with occasional chipped edges, faint staining, and rusted staples; wrappers of one quite foxed. Overall, Good to Very Good condition.. Binder: 64 leaves, most typescript to recto only, containing 57 poems. INDIANA POETS: 160 pp. Poetry magazines: various paginations. 2 b/w photographs laid in, both ~3-1/2" x 3-1/2". 4to binder (11-1/2" x 9-1/2"); 8vo book and magazines. The poetry archive of Winona Montgomery Gilliland, a minor Indiana poet who garnered some national and local acclaim primarily in the 1930s. The feature item of the archive is a binder of over 50 typescript poems with occasional pencil notations and corrections, in what we presume to be Gilliland's hand, accompanied by a typed (and incomplete) List of Publications. Given that several of the poems were typed on the blank verso of her husband's life insurance office stationery, it seems likely that these were Mrs. Gilland's personal collection, comprised of both published and apparently unpublished poems. Also included is a copy of Indiana Poets: An Anthology of 48 Living Writers (New York: Henry Harrison, 1935), in which Gilliland is one of the featured 48 writers; 20 issues of various poetry magazines (one duplicate), containing publications of her poetry; and two b/w photographs, one of which is identified as a portrait of the author.Mary Winona Gilliland lived in Indianapolis most of her life, graduating from Tudor Hall and then DePauw University before marrying Robert V. Gilliland in 1915. She was published in The American Mercury, Poetry, Kaleidograph, Indiana Poetry Magazine, Weird Tales, Bozart, Westward, Better Homes and Gardens, Wings, and the 1937 issue of American Women Poets, among other magazines, and was invited to join the Poetry Society of America in 1937.A unique collection of material documenting the literary achievements of a largely forgotten mid-20th century poet.

      1930 - Autograph Letter Signed (twice: ?Ruddy? and postscript initialled ?R?) to ?Dear Sib? [Sibyl Healey (also known as Heeley)], 2 pages 8vo with associated envelope, Bateman?s, Burwash, Sussex, 25 November A busy letter containing some advice to his friend Sibyl Healey (regarding her recent literary efforts and some matters relating to her family estate), a mention of his wife?s recent bout of ill-health and a charming post-script apologising for the poor opening paragraph, explaining that ?I?ve just finished drying two dripping long-haired dogs and it took ½ an hour?s steady friction!? ?Many thanks for the letters which I have dealt with without reading. One don?t care to go into ancestral matters of close on eighty year . Bless you for sending them but please don?t make your executors do any such thing whatever. Its an awful mistake to load a small estate with post-mortem changes [. . .] I?m no worthy Lord as a critic but if you have to send your tale along I?ll look over it: but I don?t see why Blackwood shouldn?t take it. He would do more after all! I don?t know the men of the magazine but they are always on the look-out for new stories ? Strand [. . .] Cassells; StoryTeller; Pearsons and the rest of ?em: and as a rule the shorter the better. I expect we?ll be going to Bath for a bit as the wife has had a very bad go of rheumatism. I am grateful to you for the letters about Mother [. . .]? Sibyl Healey was a life-long friend of Kipling?s and was the daughter of Wilfred Lucas Healey (also Heeley) who was a friend of Burne-Jones and Morris and was well known to the Macdonalds as he had been engaged to Kipling?s aunt Caroline.He was a contributor tothe Oxford and Cambridge Magazine. Sibyl, herself, was also an occasional writer and it is interesting to see Kipling here tentatively offering his critical services (?I?m no worthy Lord as a critic but if you have to send your tale along I?ll look over it?) but ultimately trying to dodge the undertaking: ?but I don?t see why Blackwood shouldn?t take it [?]? PROVENANCE: This was partof a Kipling family archive that came downthrough Helen MacDonald, a great niece of Rudyard Kipling's mother Alice MacDonald. Alice's three sisters were married to Edward Burne Jones, Edward Poynter (Artists) and Alfred Baldwin (father of 20th century British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin).

Deux des cartons portent en outre le cachet de l'architecte. La façade du 14 bd des Italiens fut réalisée quasiment à l'identique. D'après les documents que nous avons pu voir, le mobilier et certains aménagements intérieurs figurant dans les études sont identiques ou proches de ce qui a été finalement réalisé. Né à Vienne en 1897 l'architecte Otto Bauer s'est installé à Paris en 1926. Il y réalisa les bureaux du quotidien "Le Journal", ainsi que ces deux "bars automatiques" de la chaine "Presto", l'un 14 bd des Italiens (actuellement occupé par la BNP), l'autre à l'angle de la place de la Bourse, de la rue Vivienne et de la rue des Filles-Saint-Thomas, à l'emplacement de l'actuel immeuble de l'Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF). Il réalisa également une résidence à Garches (où s'installera plus tard le chanteur Guy Béart) et dessina aussi intérieurs et mobilier. Saisissants dessins d'architecture art-déco. Salissures et petits accidents aux cartons, les études elles-mêmes en bel état, sauf la plus petite d'entre elles, avec une trace de pliure longitudinale. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Bookplate in Australia. Its Inspiration and Development

      Tyrrell's Galleries, Sydney 1930 - Octavo, 30 pages with 10 tipped-in bookplates. Quarter cloth and papered boards, with the printed paper label on the front cover; all edges uncut; a fine copy with the original textured glassine dustwrapper (now with minor restoration). The colophon, signed by Barnett, states that the book is 'Reprinted from the 1929 Year Book of the American Society of Bookplate Collectors and Designers'. In fact, the original printing was unillustrated. In the Book Collectors' Society of Australia 2009 publication on Barnett, the bibliography by Mark Ferson lists this item as Barnett's first separate publication on the bookplate. However, Ferson does not record a separately-paginated reprint of the ASBCD article, an inscribed and signed copy of which we have handled, which presumably predates this Tyrrell edition. Ferson notes a signed and numbered edition limited to 50 copies, as well as this unlimited edition, but does not record that there are two issues of the latter. The superior form is as described here; the standard form is in wrappers, unsigned. This copy comes from the collection of Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author and book-collector; his wattle-design bookplate is tipped in on the half-title. The page facing it is inscribed [by R.H. Croll] to 'E.E. Pescott with the good wishes of the friends gathered to wish him and Mrs Pescott bon voyage. Melbourne 9th March 1939'. The bookplate of the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria is tipped in on the same page. Tipped in on the front flyleaf is the 'Mutual Store' menu for the farewell dinner, signed by 17 guests, including Pescott, Croll, Charles Barrett, Crosbie Morrison, and Charles French. An autograph letter signed by Barnett, relating to the occasion, is also tipped in. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges.

        "A Machine-Oriented Logic Based on the Resolution Principle"

      First publication of the resolution principle, the standard of logical deduction in AI applications. The basic computational method in logic programming, the unification algorithm, was proposed by mathematician Jacques Herbrand in 1930, but its first practical use was not discovered until Robinson introduced it in this paper as the basic operation of his resolution principle. "Robinson described his resolution principle as 'machine-oriented' in that it was particularly suitable for proofs to be performed by computer, having only one rule of inference that could be applied many times. Robinson's resolution has since been used as the standard of logical deduction in AI applications" (Hook & Norman, Origins of Cyberspace 865). "Born in Halifax, England, and having served in the RAF, [Robinson] attended Cambridge University, where he read classics. He received his master's degree in philosophy from the University of Oregon and his doctorate in philosophy from Princeton University in 1956. His interests thereafter focused on computers and logic. In 1963, as a visitor from Rice University in Texas to the Argonne National Laboratories, he became interested in automated reasoning, and in 1963 invented Resolution and Unification. In 1967 he became the Distinguished University Professor at Syracuse University and later Visiting Professor at Edinburgh University in Scotland." (New York Times obituary). Bibliography: Hook & Norman, Origins of Cyberspace 865. [in] Journal of the Association for Computing Machinery, volume 12, number 1, pages 23-41. Baltimore, MD: The Association for Computing Machinery, 1965. Quarto. Original cream wrappers printed in black. Remnants of a mailing label to the upper wrapper. Just a little rubbed and creased. Excellent condition.
