Large, thick folio (11 by 15 inches), original gilt-lettered cream wrappers, uncut and partially unopened, original glassine wrapper, original faux alligator slipcase. $4000.Limited first edition, number L of only 80 copies not available for sale (from a total edition of 880), of this erudite history of “the artifices that women employ in order to support and perfect their fragile beauty,” with numerous fashion plates (12 in color), facsimiles and in-text illustrations on nearly every page. Inscribed on the half title, “Hommage de l’auteur a Madame C. Capaldi, sa dénoncé collaboratrice, Paris le 20 Mai 1937, F. Libron,” and accompanied by 15 separate plates from the “Album” laid in.Written some years after the heyday of corsetry by Fernand Libron, president of the Chambre Syndicale des Fabricants de Corsets, and Henri Clouzot, conservateur of the Musee Galliera (better known today as the Musee la Mode et du Costume), this monumental costume book pays special tribute to Ernest Leoty’s very scarce Le Corset a Traverse les Ages (1893), which includes detailed cutting paterns and technical information for the tailor who specializes in making corsets. “A corset is somewhat similar to an umbrella in its construction. When the umbrella is raised, the fabric tautens. The ribs are reinforced with metal tips, to which the fabric of the umbrella is sewn. These tips hold the fabric in a tautened condition while the umbrella is in use. It is the same with a corset” (O.Y. Dalziel). Text in French. Accompanied by 15 loose engravings, listed in the index of illustrations under the heading “Album.” Hiler, 544. Book and plates fine, spine panel of original glassine perished, slipcase only slightly rubbed. A fine copy.

        Autograph, signed letter of 2 March 1933 from T E Lawrence to his friend and fellow writer Henry Williamson

      Mount Batten R.A.F. Station, 1933. Autograph letter, signed. This is an original, autograph signed letter dated 2 March 1933 from T. E. Lawrence to his friend and fellow writer Henry Williamson. The 125-word letter entirely in Lawrence's hand is fascinating in multiple respects, penned at Mount Batten R.A.F. station, providing insight into Lawrence's friendship with Williams, as well as his friendship with author Robert Graves, and rather poignantly referencing the impending end of Lawrence's R.A.F. career. The letter also eerily presages correspondence regarding meeting with Williamson that would indirectly cause Lawrence's death a little more than two years later. Condition is excellent, crisp and clean with two creases – one vertical and one horizontal – ostensibly from original posting. The letter is headed: “Mount Batten | II.iii.33”. R.A.F. station Mountbatten, a peninsula in Plymouth Sound, Devon, was “one of the most enjoyable of Lawrence's postings.” (Wilson, Lawrence, p.850) Lawrence writes: “Dear H. W. | Your letters made me laugh, and then | think hard. You are really two entirely different people,| and if only they could come together what a book we | should have!” “H. W.” is the English writer Henry William Williamson (1895-1977). Lawrence's comment is fascinating; Williamson was “a skillful and supremely observant writer, but nevertheless a man who was introspective, egocentric, insecure, and intensely lonely” – words which could easily be used to characterize Lawrence himself. (Wilson, T.E. Lawrence Correspondence with Henry Williamson, p.xii) They became friends in 1928 when Lawrence read and was impressed by Williamson's Tarka the Otter. From this beginning grew a significant correspondence that lasted until Lawrence's death. “I didn't answer because you said you were | coming, and now I am sorry you may not. I am | away from Thursday to Monday of next week – this week | it will be before the letter reaches you – but constantly in | the station for the rest.” Two years later, similar correspondence with Williamson would inadvertently precipitate Lawrence's death. Lawrence was returning from sending a telegram in response to a letter from Williamson about a forthcoming visit when he suffered the motorcycle accident that took his life. “My R.A.F. life is very near its end: not to let | it gutter away I am leaving voluntarily next month. | For what? Heaven knows.” Lawrence actually submitted his formal request for discharge just four days later, on 6 March 1933. The request was granted, though Lawrence withdrew his discharge application on 19 April when offered a posting that enabled him to work again on R.A.F. boats. “Graves has been very good. Then family jars and | two women overset him. He will recover, I think.” “Graves” is Robert von Ranke Graves (1895-1985), the English poet and novelist. The reference to Graves indicates Lawrence's own complicated and uncomfortable relationship with sexuality. Lawrence disliked Graves's companion, Laura Riding, owing to his feeling “that both of them had allowed their lives to be dominated by carnality.” (Wilson, Lawrence, p.870) The other of the "two women" is likely Nancy Nicholson, Graves's wife; the three had untenably cohabitated. The valediction “Yours | TES” testifies to Lawrence's close relationship with George Bernard (1856-1950) and Charlotte Payne-Townsend Shaw (1857-1943). The Shaws played an integral role in Lawrence's literary and personal life. As testimony to the complex importance of the Shaws to Lawrence, by early 1923 Lawrence had enlisted in the Army under the name "Thomas Edward Shaw." Lawrence would use, and publish under, his assumed surname until his death. “A cut hand: so I can't write properly.” It is difficult to take the postscript only literally and not regard the metaphor for a man who was as brilliant, gifted, and accomplished as he was damaged, confined by his own demons, and ultimately cut short in both life and letters.

        Testament of Youth. An Autobiographical Story of the Years 1900-1925.

      London Victor Gollancz Ltd 1933 - First edition, 8vo., 661, [1]pp., minor offsetting to endpapers, else fine, publishers cloth, spine faded, printed dust-jacket, small chips to corners and spine ends, age-toned, short closed tear to top edge of upper panel, otherwise very good. Brittain was an avowed pacifist and feminist whose fiancé, brother and two closest male friends were killed during the First World War. This memoir was published in 1933 and became an instant hit, selling 120,000 copies over the next six years. It was then republished in the late 1970s and adapted into a popular television series, attracting a whole new audience. More recently it made into a highly acclaimed feature film. Much of what is known and felt about the First World War is derived from Vera Brittain's elegiac yet unsparing book, which set a standard for memoirists from Martha Gellhorn to Lillian Hellman. Abandoning her studies at Oxford in 1915 to enlist as a nurse in the armed services, Brittain served in London, in Malta, and on the Western Front. Testament of Youth is both a record of what she lived through and an elegy for a vanished generation. Hailed by the Times Literary Supplement as a book that helped "both form and define the mood of its time," it speaks to any generation that has been irrevocably changed by war The author is the mother of the M.
