        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. SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE DE CE TRÈS BEAU LIVRE ILLUSTRÉ. EXEMPLAIRE RELIÉ PAR L'ILLUSTRATEUR. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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." .

        JEUNE FILLE DE SAIPAN ET FLEURS D'HIBISCUS. 'MARIANES.' YOUNG GIRL OF SAIPAN AND

      - Japan 1934, Jacoulet. A single deluxe large print, sheet size ca. 35 x 46 cm.,print size ca. 30 x 39.5 cm., woodblock printed by hand on hand-made paper, carved by Yamagishi, printed by Ushibara. FIRST LIMITED & ONLY NUMBERED EDITION This being number 71 of 150 prints. * This is Jacoulet's FIRST print, and the print That launched his artistic career. It is also the first print in a projected flower series which included eight other prints. * The mica background is flawless & magnificent. Other printers who tried this delicate technique later saw this mica chip and flaked off. However, Jacoulet's master printer Ushibara expertly applied mica with such skill and produced a flawless example. * OUR COPY: Our copy is the FIRST PRINTING, of which 150 impressions were done, and is distinguished by the "two frown" lines found on the woman's forehead. Per Miles p.89, "this is omitted in the second edition." . This very RARE print is signed in pencil "Paul Jacoulet" then "Fan" sealed with his cinnabar chop [Hanko]. The paper is watermarked "PJ" in the lower left corner. Miles has also pointed out on p.128 that: "The South Seas prints were all created from sketches and paintings done between 1929 and 1936. Since many were lost because of World War II bombing of Tokyo, several of them are among the rarest & most desirable of all the artist's oeuvre." . Then Miles then cites a list of these "most desirable" prints, and begins with this print as number one on that list ! See Miles below. *** CONDITION: There is a bit of toning to the margin, otherwise, a flawless example. The sparkle of the crushed mica is truly beautiful and represents a high-water mark in Japanese woodblock hand-printing technique. Truly lovely as the day it was published. Framed and glazed. We have posted two color photos of this to our home page: the first under "cover" is a digital photo of this print; the second is the color frontispiece from Miles under "illustration 1." * A copy recently sold at auction for $1800. * REFERENCE: R. Miles; THE PRINTS OF PAUL JACOULET, illustrated as the color frontispiece and again on p.41, as item number 1, descriptive text on p.89. . Per Miles: "Jacoulet's first print was made from his favorite South Seas watercolor. The original depicted a far more worn and prematurely aged creature than did either of the editions. The paler coloring and introspective expression of the first impression gave way to crisper, brighter colors under Jacoulet's direct supervision. There is a rich silver mica background." ***

        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 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.
