The court was centred upon the king&#39;s household, and a courtier was a noble honoured with some task in the royal domestic service: gentleman of the bedchamber, master of the hunt, lady-in-waiting or page. Expansion under Louis XIV had fixed the court permanently at Versailles and refined it as a political instrument. There were soon thousands of court officers and Versailles became the model for all European states. Like a magnet, it drew nobles from the provinces to shine in the reflected glory of the king. It existed to exalt the monarch and concentrate the gaze of observers on itself. (YA)Includingfifteen engraved plates with tissue guards.

Violet Oakley (June 10, 1874 &#150; February 25, 1961) was a transformative force in the field of American mural painting and a principal affiliate of the Brandywine school of painting and illustration. After studying abroad and a term as a student of Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute, she was commissioned to undertake the murals and stained glass for the Church of All Angels in New York, earning her distinction as America&#39;s first professional woman artist. Her political beliefs were shaped by the Quaker William Penn whose ideals she represented in her murals at the Pennsylvania State Capitol. She was committed to the principles of pacifism, equality of the races and sexes, economic and social justice, and international government. She lived with two other women artists, and the three were known professionally as the "Red Rose Girls." They were joined by a fourth woman, Henrietta Cozzens, with whom Oakley had a long-term committed relationship, and they collectively adopted a common surname: the &#39;Cogs&#39; family. When the United States refused to join the League of Nations after the Great War, Oakley went to Geneva, Switzerland, as an informal self- appointed Ambassador and spent three years drawing portraits of the League&#39;s delegates, some of which are included here, in company with reproductions of her murals at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court building. After World War II, Oakley was an early advocate of nuclear disarmament. A special calligraphic presentation leaf appears in the first part, recording the donation of this copy to the institution from whence it was recently deaccessioned.

      Eugen Rentsch, Erlenbach-Zürich, München u. Leipzig. 1932.. [62] S., 1 Bl. 8°, Orig.-Broschur.. Original-Ausgabe. - Paul Renner, der herausragende Typograf und Grafikdesigner, ergreift hierin deutlich Partei für das Neue Bauen sowie die funktionelle Gestaltung und richtet sich mit scharfer Kritik gegen die nationalistische Kulturpropaganda. Bereits im März 1932 war kein Deutscher Verlag dazu bereit, die Streitschrift zu veröffentlichen, so dass der Essay schließlich bei dem mit Renner befreundeten Schweizer Verleger Eugen Rentsch publiziert wurde. Alsbald war der Verlag gezwungen, den Band aus dem deutschen Buchhandel zurückzuziehen. (Vgl. Roland Reuß. In: Nachdruck. Frankfurt am Main und Basel 2003). - Druck B. Heller, München, gesetzt in Futura. - Broschur knickspurig, an den Rändern fleckig u. am Rücken mit kleiner Fehlstelle, innen schwach stockfleckig u. mit Stempel auf letzter Seite.

Spine very slightly faded, a few faint spots to page edges, in the jacket that has a few chips to the extremities, a toned spine, and a few marks on the rear panel. A good copy.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his friend Dickin Moore on the front free endpaper: "For Dickin Moore, with greetings and good wishes, from John Hampson, March 1938". Whilst the precise nature of their relationship remains unclear, Moore and Hampson had a longstanding friendship that deepened over the years, as evidenced by a 1953 lengthy letter from Hampson to Moore loosely inserted into Hampson&#39;s sixth and final novel, Bag of Stones. This is the second novel of John Hampson Simpson, published under his pseudonym John Hampson. It examines the coming of age of the child protagonist Justin Stoneton.
