        Gargantua

      Aux éditions de la Cigogne, Fontenay-aux-Roses, 1934 - GARGANTUA selon le texte de l'édition critique publiée par Abel Lefranc chez H. Champion. Quarante eaux-fortes de Barta. Aux éditions de la Cigogne, Fontenay-aux-Roses, 1934 1 volume in-folio (33 x 26 cm) de 197-(6) pages. 40 eaux-fortes en noir dans le texte et hors-texte. Lettrines historiées gravées sur bois par l'artiste. Reliure plein maroquin lie de vin, dos à dix nerfs réguliers, premier plat orné d'une plaquette d'ébène de Macassar sculptée par Barta (représentant le visage de Gargantua) soulignée par deux larges filets de maroquin chaudron à deux angles, tête dorée, non rogné, couverture illustrée d'une eau-forte conservée, doublure à encadrement de maroquin serti de filets à froid et d'un filet de maroquin caramel mosaïqué, centre des doublures et gardes de moire rouge, gardes de papier décoré fait main. Etui bordé (légèrement frotté). La reliure est l'oeuvre de l'artiste illustrateur Laszlo Barta, avec son certificat d'authenticité signé et daté (Paris, 1935) la désignant comme oeuvre unique qui ne sera pas refaite. Superbe exemplaire à l'état proche du neuf. Rousseurs éparses dans le volume, plus ou moins présentes selon les feuillets, mais jamais obsédantes. TIRAGE A 218 EXEMPLAIRES. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 160 SUR VÉLIN DE RIVES A LA FORME. Laszlo Barta était peintre et mosaïste. Il est né en 1902 à Nagykoros en Hongrie et s'est fixé en France en 1926. Naturalisé français, il est mort en 1961. Il a conçu des décors et illustré plusieurs livres (Carmen, Gargantua, Femmes de Verlaine, etc.) pour bibliophiles. Bénézit indique d'après le témoignage de la veuve de l'artiste : « vu les circonstances après 1932 [.], il [L. Barta] avait jugé prudent, avec l'accord de son éditeur et vu sa situation d'apatride : Hongrois et Israélite, de substituer à son vrai nom le pseudonyme de Brutus, dès lors qu'il s'agissait d'ouvrages un peu spéciaux - érotiques - ornés pour la plupart de gouaches originales. » Laszlo Barta s'est également essayé à l'eau-forte pour illustrer quelques ouvrages de bibliophilie tel que celui que nous présentons. Nous avons eu en main une reliure similaire avec plaquette d'ivoire sculptée par Barta pour les deux ouvrages érotiques Amies et Hombre de Paul Verlaine (tiré à 15 ex. seulement et tous uniques composés d'aquarelles originales toujours différentes selon les ex.). La plaquette d'ébène très habilement sculptée par Barta confère à l'ensemble un charme et une unicité évidents. Très belle édition illustrée par Barta du Gargantua de Rabelais. Le style des eaux-fortes est à rapprocher d'un Brueghel l'Ancien. Le comique et les personnages déformés gonflés jusqu'à l'excès sont tout à fait en accord avec le texte de Rabelais et l'époque à laquelle il a été écrit.

        YAMATO-E MONYO SHUN KA SHU JU: JAPANESE DESIGNS OF SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN & WINT

      [Kyoto 1934, Uchida]. Stiff board covers, folio 30.5 x 42.5 cm., 10 fine color woodcut color prints tipped in, pristine condition prints, cover edges worn, else a very nice solid copy of a rare book. FIRST & ONLY OBSCURE EDITION A STUNNING WOODBLOCK PRINTED "ART DECO" "AVANT-GARDE" ALBUM A folio sized large color-printed woodblock accordion folded album with ten stunning "Art Deco" Japanese prints with creative and skilled composition and fantastic color use, reflecting the "Avant-Garde" movement. CONTENTS: Title page in Japanese listing ten print titles. Each print is lightly tipped in to the album at the top edge, each 21 x 31.7 cm. Each woodblock print is printed in stunning polychrome or multi-colors. Each is a masterpiece work, with excellent registry and color, each is flawless, no issues. THE WOODCUT PRINTS: 1. Depicts a bird with cherry blossoms and Yanagi [weeping willow] tree. 2. Shows a large paulownia floral Mon on a grand-size textile partition, indicating the Imperial family home, with white pear blossoming tree. 3. A stunning iris with bamboo lattice, colorful flowers and leaves. 4. Illustrates a pair of water-foul in the river, with a double cherry blossom on the shore and three rocks, gentle flowing wave patterns. 5. Two bamboo stalks and a new bamboo shoot, eight bamboo leaves in purple, red and green. Fascinating composition. 6. A stunning scene showing a blue butterfly hovering over a wheat-like flower head, with red and green leaves, with a pale yellow flower in bloom. There is some crushed mica used to pattern of the wind in the background, flowing behind the flowers and butterfly. The use of mica is the most difficult and complicated form of woodblock printing ever used in Japan. It is a special technique, involving the use of mica crushed into a "glittering" ink-like color, reflecting silver color. Indicative of a master artist and superb block printer at his best. Seldom used technique due to its high level of application difficulty. 7. An owl in a cypress tree, with black and white trunk and leaves. The owl has brown outer feathers, pale crème chest feathers with a blue-black beak and large eyes with gray outline. The background in a diagonal purple within a gray sky, impressive image and composition. 8. Weeping willow sprig in the foreground, a traditional Japanese bridge with its red-lacquer posts and rail, topped with a bronze miniature Buddhist pagoda. In the background are two round bamboo baskets, each a different color: foremost is gold with gray background, the second is purple, both sit before a powerful indigo-blue "V" shaped background, with a pale blue-silver second background from the upper left corner progressing through the left half of the image to the lower right corner. A stunning composition and creative use of color. 9. Two Peony flowers, one in white the other in crimson, with black leaves, against a green-covered mountain with oxidized copper-ochre background. Behind the two mountains are two very tall and jagged mountains with two streams of clouds in brilliant white moving half-way across the sheet. Yet another stunning composition and imaginative and very creative use of color and forms. 10. Pink flowers with tiny white stamens on a dark brown twig, the background is a blue ocean with lovely wave-patterns in silver, behind which is a green mountain, and a silver background, again special and skillful use of crushed mica to indicate the sea spray rising from the ocean waves. The foreground has pale brown, beige and cream with silver grass and twigs in a delicate pattern. Beautifully executed composition and creative use of color Please view the images posted to our website for this gem. This is a stunning example of some of Japan's best "Art Deco" and "Avant-Garde" work of the period. CONDITION: The front album cover is woodblock-printed paper, with a purple floral pattern and black Sumi-ink Kanji titles. The back cover is covered in a crepe-like embossed pattern in beige. Both covers are well worn on the edges and just inside from the edges, and the internal boards are showing on the edges. The covers have performed their duty to protect the contents. The contents are exceptionally clean, if not pristine. The front end papers are a gold-fleck hand-made Washi paper covered thick board pages. Each page has a gauze-like cotton hinge material inside and under the page covered paper. Each page hinge is solid, intact and firm. Each page is covered in a "gauze" pattern embossed paper laid down over the stiff board pages. Each print is lightly tipped-in at the top edge, the balance is loose, revealing the verso to any interested observer. There is a small amount of foxing to the "gauze" paper covering and the title page. Otherwise each print is exceptionally clean, no foxing or other issues whatsoever. We do not like to use the word 'pristine' however in this case it is the proper adjective to describe the flawless condition of each print. The book can and should be opened as the artist & publisher intended, flat to show two lovely images in juxtaposition. The last print is facing the colophon. By and large an excellent example of mid 1930's Japanese "Art Deco," artistic compositions, "modern" and "creative" use of color, design and artistic concepts of "modernity." .

In the background are two round bamboo baskets, each a different color: foremost is gold with gray background, the second is purple, both sit before a powerful indigo-blue "V" shaped background, with a pale blue-silver second background from the upper left corner progressing through the left half of the image to the lower right corner. A stunning composition and creative use of color. . 9. Two Peony flowers, one in white the other in crimson, with black leaves, against a green-covered mountain with oxidized copper-ochre background. Behind the two mountains are two very tall and jagged mountains with two streams of clouds in brilliant white moving half-way across the sheet. Yet another stunning composition and imaginative and very creative use of color and forms. . 10. Pink flowers with tiny white stamens on a dark brown twig, the background is a blue ocean with lovely wave-patterns in silver, behind which is a green mountain, and a silver background, again special and skillful use of crushed mica to indicate the sea spray rising from the ocean waves. The foreground has pale brown, beige and cream with silver grass and twigs in a delicate pattern. Beautifully executed composition and creative use of color . Please view the images posted to our website for this gem. *** This is a stunning example of some of Japan's best "Art Deco" and "Avant-Garde" work of the period. . *** CONDITION: The front album cover is woodblock-printed paper, with a purple floral pattern and black Sumi-ink Kanji titles. The back cover is cover

        Fuji-Yama and other Poems.

      London: The Eastern Press, Ltd.,, [1934]. Transcribed from the Chinese and Japanese Originals. Duodecimo. Original green cloth, gilt titles to spine and front, top edge gilt. Spine tanned, chip from the cloth at head, some other light wear and mottling to the cloth, internally sound and clean, a good copy. First and only edition, presentation copy from the author to H. G. Wells, inscribed on the half-title, "To H. G. Wells, In friendship and admiration, Gonnoské Komai." The author was a Japanese poet living in London between the wars, who also published Dream from China and Japan (1918) and Fuji from Hampstead Heath (1925). This book is one of several from the library of H. G. Wells that were sent to his illegitimate daughter Anna-Jane Kennard (1909-2010), the product of his 1908-9 extramarital affair with feminist author Amber Reeves (1887-1981). Well's novel Ann Veronica (1909) is based on his affair with Reeves. Kennard did not know the true identity of her father throughout her childhood and adolescence, but eventually they met. On 6 March 1931 Wells wrote to his daughter: "My dear, I think that you and I have to come to perfectly frank dealings with each other: let us clear up the situation. For 19 years I have been doing my best to ignore your existence because of various humiliating and baffling things that occurred when you were born. Now I have met you, I love you very much." Later, during the Second World War, as a fitting gesture recognising their connection, Wells sent to his daughter, then living in her mother's native New Zealand, several boxes of books from his library. This copy has her pencil ownership inscription "A. Kennard" to the front free endpaper. The book is quite scarce, with only three copies listed in British institutions, and none in the British Library.

      Berlin-Schöneberg, NS.-Druck und Verlag, um 1934. (noch zu Nr. 25501:) \". . . Dr. Erwin Piscator, bolschewistischer Kunstjude, raffinierter Veranstalter zersetzender Theaterstücke. Zum Schluss Pleite / Professor Reinhard (eigentlich Judith Goldmann) beherrschte zeitweilig als Theater-Hohepriester nicht weniger als vier Theater in Berlin, nämlich die Komödie, die Kammerspiele, das Berliner Theater und das Theater am Kurfürstendamm. Getaugt haben sie unter ihm alle nichts. Seine minderwertige und sinnlose Kunst wurde von der jüdischen Presse mit Leidenschaft im Volke aufgerichtet / Charlie Chaplin. Dieser ebenso langweilige wie widerwärtige kleine Zappeljude wurde vom \"Israelitischen Familienblatt\" in folgender Weise verherrlicht: \"Aber C.C., der den ewigen Krieg des Geistes gegen die Gewalt, das Recht der Armen (!) immer wieder - alle Welt erschütternd (?) - darstellt, ist der Mythos unserer Zeit geworden\". Diese Zeit ist gewesen / Ernst Toller. Beteiligt an der blutigen Bolschewistenherrschaft in München, schlechter Dichter und feige. Konnte nach der Machtergreifung durch Adolf Hitler rechtzeitig eingesperrt werden / Siegfried Arno. Das Ponim ist durchaus echt. Spielte jüdische Rollen, in denen der Jude als harmlos, komisch und liebenswürdig dargestellt wurde, um so das Rasseempfinden des deutschen Volkes einzuschläfern / Elisabeth Bergner. Von der jüdischen Filmindustrie hochgelobter Star, über deren menschliche Garstigkeit und Herrschsucht im Kreise ihrer Kolleginnen nur eine Stimme ist / Ministerialrat Gerstenberg. Verjüdelte erfolgreich das Musikleben in Preußen, schützte überall Juden und Marxisten und wurde verdientermaßen abserviert / James Klein. Seine Revuen, die er unterhielt, stellen das Unglaublichste an Sittenlosigkeit dar, das die Welt je gesehen hat. Die unglücklichen Mädchen, die bei ihm auftraten, waren Freiwild für jüdische Lebemänner. Endlich machten die James Klein- Bühnen Pleite / Alfred Kerr, richtig Jud Kempner. Kritiker des \"Berliner Tagblatts\", verhöhnte schmutzig das deutsche Volk und log gegen Adolf Hitler. Nach Paris geflohen / . .. Rummel mit jüdischen Stars, wie die Elisabeth Bergner, Gitta Alpar und ähnlichen Judenkallen entfesselte, der die deutsche Filmkunst ruinierte. Verjudet waren auch Rundfunk und Kritik bis zu dem Grade, daß jahrelang nur Juden, Marxisten und ihre Freunde im Rundfunk zu Wort kamen, während die deutsche Kunst ausgeschaltet war\", usw. - Mit weiteren zeittypischen Ausführungen wie z.B.: \"Es genügt nicht, sich die Juden anzusehen, die uns all die letzten Jahre politisch, geistig und wirtschaftlich beherrscht haben. Das deutsche Volk muss vor allem auf der Wacht stehen, daß eine Judenherrschaft nicht wiederkommt. In strenger Disziplin und Gesetzlichkeit ist dafür zu sorgen, daß Deutschland nun auch den Deutschen gehört. Zwei Rassen, zwei Völker, zwei Seelen können nicht ein Land besitzen - darum war der Kampf des Deutschtums unter Adolf Hitler gegen die jüdische Überfremdung eine geschichtliche Notwendigkeit. Nachdem der Jude um uns im deutschen Lande nunmehr besiegt ist, erwächst die noch größere Aufgabe, ihn auch in uns zu beseitigen und dem arteigenen deutschen Seelenturm überall, in Schule und Gesellschaft, Volksleben und in der Kunst zum Durchbruch zu verhelfen. Wir haben nicht nur gegen das Judentum gekämpft, sondern wir haben für das Deutschtum gekämpft. Dieser Kampf ist noch nicht zu Ende. Der Kampf geht weiter! Heil Hitler!\" - Auch Konrad Adenauer und Matthias Erzberger sind in dieser Juden-Galerie mit aufgeführt. - Nationalsozialistische Judenbekämpfung, Adolf Hitler als Zielscheibe jüdischer Lügen, Zappeljude Charles Chaplin, jüdische Wirtschaftskriminalität der Weimarer Republik, Juden als Wirtschaftskriminelle größten Ausmaßes, jüdische Kulturzersetzer in deutschen Landen, Zersetzung und Verjudung deutschen Kulturlebens, illustrierte Bücher, scharfer judenfeindlicher Standpunkt, Kampf des Deutschtums unter Adolf Hitler gegen jüdische Überfremdung, NS.-Schrifttum, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut Versand D: 5,90 EUR Nationalsozialistische Judenbekämpfung, Adolf Hitler als Zielscheibe jüdischer Lügen, Zappeljude Charles Chaplin, jüdische Wirtschaftskriminalität der Weimarer Republik, Juden als Wirtschaftskriminelle größten Ausmaßes, jüdische Kulturzersetzer in deutschen Landen, Zersetzung und Verjudung deutschen Kulturlebens, illustrierte Bücher, scharfer judenfeindlicher Standpunkt, Kampf des Deutschtums unter Adolf Hitler gegen jüdische Überfremdung, NS.-Schrifttum, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut

        The Devil Rides Out.

      Hutchinson, 1934. 8vo., original cloth with dust wrapper. Jacket exceptionally bright, with some small chips along the top edge, affecting just a few of the top edges of the letters in the author's last name. With a remnant of the original "Crime Book-Society Selection" band, and a small sticker for the Book Guild affixed to the front panel, as issued. Preserved in three quarter leather clamshell box, with a rounded spine, raised bands, gilt titling and rules. First UK Edition. Inscribed by the author to actor Christopher Lee on the title page: "For Christopher Lee / Who gave such a magnificent performance as Richleau in the film of the story / from Dennis." Laid in is a one-page typed letter from Wheatley to Christopher Lee, on the author's own stationary, some 130 words. From the estate of Christopher Lee, with full provenance available. As great an association as can be imagined, between the author and the horror icon who brought that author's 1934 novel to life 30 years after it was written. Wheatley's novel is considered to be the best novel of supernatural fiction, and its 1968 film version, adapted by Richard Matheson and directed by Terence Fisher, one of the best supernatural thrillers of Hammer Films' golden age, a decade bursting with novels in that genre. The novel is set in London of the 1920s, where two friends, the recurring Wheatley character the Duke de Richleau (Christopher Lee) and Rex (Leon Greene) go to the home of their good friend and end up interrupting the meeting of a Satanic cult. The Duc, an expert on the occult, spends the remainder of the novel protecting his friends from cult followers and going head-to-head with the Angel of Death. In an October 26, 1967 letter to his fan club president, Gloria Lillibridge, Lee notes: "Author Dennis Wheatley came to see us on the set and told me that he was delighted with the way in which we were making his story...I have high hopes of this film, as it will prove, once and for all, that I can be accepted in a completely normal role" (Johnson, Tom, et al. The Christopher Lee Filmography: All Theatrical Releases, 1948-2003 US. The role of Duc proved to be a defining one for Lee, and from the tone of Wheatley's inscription, his admiration for the actor is quite clear. As late as 2015, Lee was rumored to have a huge interest in the occult, and an enormous private library on the subject; Lee relayed the following to an interviewer: "I don't have a huge collection. Somebody wrote I had twenty thousand books (laughter). I would have to live in a bath (extended laughter). I have maybe four or five...I have "The Devil Rides Out," first edition, signed to me by Dennis Wheatley."
