        Ulysses

      New York: The Limited Editions Club. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF ULYSSES, ONE OF ONLY 250 COPIES SIGNED BY BOTH JAMES JOYCE AND HENRI MATISSE; one of the most celebrated books of the twentieth century. The Limited Editions Club's Ulysses is the first illustrated Ulysses and "one of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. The artist chose to take six subjects from Homer's Odyssey. The preparatory drawings reproduced with the soft-ground etchings (Matisse's only use of this medium) record the evolution of the figures from vigorous sketches to closely knit, if less spontaneous, compositions" (The Artist and the Book, 197). Illustrated by Matisse with twenty-six plates, consisting of six soft-ground etchings, printed by hand, and twenty lithographic drawings, made as studies for the etchings, printed on thin colored papers. One of only 250 copies signed by both Joyce and Matisse (the remaining 1250 copies of the edition were signed only by Matisse). New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. Quarto, original brown buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton; top edge sprinkled brown, others uncut; original slipcase. Minor wear to slipcase. A FINE COPY.

        ULYSSES

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. No. 1367 OF 1,500 COPIES, SIGNED BY MATISSE. Hardcover. 305 x 235 mm (12 x 9 1/4"). xv, [iii], 363, [3] pp. Introduction by Stuart Gilbert. No. 1367 OF 1,500 COPIES, SIGNED BY MATISSE. Publisher's original brown buckram, embossed in gilt and titled on front cover and on flat spine, the decorations from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton. Housed in the original (slightly worn but generally well-preserved) board slipcase with brown titling on the spine. WITH 26 ILLUSTRATIONS BY HENRI MATISSE, depicting the Calypso, Aeolus, Cyclops, Nausicaa, Circe, and Ithaca episodes from Homer's "Odyssey." With the book review from the 24 November 1935 "New York Times" laid in at front. Slocum & Cahoon A-22; Quarto-Millenary 71; "The Artist and the Book" 197. Slipcase with minor soiling and with discreet minor and very neat glue repairs along joints, tiny losses of paper at head and tail of spine, otherwise solid and excellent. The volume itself in virtually mint condition. This is a particularly well-preserved copy of the only book illustrated by Matisse to be published in America, and one of the great collaborations of artist and author in the annals of 20th century private press publication. In the opinion of art publisher Monroe Wheeler, "It was a great idea to bring [Joyce and Matisse] together; celebrities of the same generation, of similar virtuosity." Newman says that this work and the Limited Editions Club "Lysistrata" "stand as landmarks in the history of the illustrated book," and the "Ulysses" is almost certainly the most famous work among LEC publications designed by George Macy. Matisse's illustrations are curious in that they were based not on "Ulysses," a work the artist had not read when he was asked to make etchings for the text, but on Homer's "Odyssey," from which Joyce's book obviously derives. "Following Matisse's wishes, the preparatory studies were grouped in front of each corresponding print, allowing the viewer to see the progression from sketch to finished composition." (Grolier Club Exhibition) Joyce was furious when he learned that Matisse had chosen to illustrate scenes from Homer's "Odyssey" as he had not bothered to read "Ulysses." As a result, he stopped signing the Limited Editions Club printing in a fit of pique, after affixing his signature to 250 copies (whereas Matisse signed them all). Although the LEC edition of "Ulysses" is far from a rare book in the marketplace, it is becoming more difficult to find in very fine condition (as here) and especially so with an excellent slipcase like the one housing our volume.

        Typed Letter, signed ("George Gershwin") to Hollywood music director Abe Meyer, thanking him for his "charming letter regarding PORGY AND BESS"

      New York, 8 november, 1935. 8 x 7 inches. One page, on personal stationery. Fine, matted and framed, with a portrait . Interesting letter, written less than a month after Gershwin's now legendary opera opened on October 10, 1935, to mixed reviews and a disappointingly short run. In this letter to Abe Meyer, musical director of many Hollywood movies (including REEFER MADNESS), Gershwin seems genuinely touched by Meyer's remarks: "- please accept my belated thanks for your charming letter regarding 'Porgy and Bess' last month. I appreciate your thoughtfulness in writing to me -" A fine, succinct example of a Gershwin letter from that period mentioning the work he is most remembered for, shortly after the opening, and signed boldly and in full

        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Mady Bijou » de Léon Sazie

      Arthème Fayard 1935 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Mady Bijou » de Léon Sazie, n°318 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, 1935. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), signées par l'artiste. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier calque monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain Comme neuf couverture rigide Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

        Original typescript of a short article, "Early American Angling" with two ink corrections, and the typed initials "E. V.C." at the bottom

      N.p n.d. ca. 1935 N.p, n.d. [ca. 1935]. One page, about 500 words, 11 x 8 1/2 inches. A few marginal tears without loss, else fine. From the collection of Eugene V. Connett, III, proprietor of The Derrydale Press . A brief but interesting survey of fly fishing in the 1840s along the eastern seaboard from Boston to Philadelphia. Connett notes a number of specific locations and individuals, and ends, "We must remember that those were the days before Brown Trout or Rainbows were found in our eastern streams. I have always felt that the introduction of Brown Trout provided just the needed incentive for the introduction of the dry fly to this country, as I have always found them to be the prime surface feeders of the trout family. But, of course, these oldtimers did some surface fishing with the many dropper flies --sometimes as many as three!--which they played on the surface."A LIVELY AND INFORMATIVE ARTICLE

        South: The Harvest

      London: The Baynard Press, 1935. Mounted onto cotton First Printing Fine A fine original poster designed by John Mansbridge (British: 1901-1981) for the London Transit and printed by the Baynard Press in 1935. Fine condition. Mounted onto cotton. 25 x 40 inches. Subtly inspired by Cubism and honoring the rural tradition set forth by Thomas Hart Benton, Mansbridge's compositions explode with a forceful confidence. His vibrant scenes of toil are charged with motion and the strenuous integrity of the laborers: both man and beast, as they sheer sheep, plow fields and reap the harvest of the verdant and amber lands of rural Britain. With an emphasis on strong design, the graphic intent of the London Transit posters was to reach a diverse audience, encourage travel and all the while enliven and brighten the oft-dreary locale of the London Underground, the "Tube". A fine, scarce example all around.

        Ideas of Order By Wallace Stevens

      New York, The Alcestis Press, 1935. 63 p., 1 leaf, 24 cm. "This first edition... is strictly limited to 165 copies, signed by the author. Twenty copies, numbered I-XX are printed on Duca di Modena, an Italian handmade paper, for presentation purposes; 135 copies, numbered 1-135 on Strathmore permanent all-rag paper, are for sale, and 10 copies, marked out of series, are for review." Edelstein A2.a quotes a Stevens letter to Latimer: "The book has just arrived and gives me the greatest possible pleasure. It must have taken no end of time and put you and Mr. [Willard] Maas to no end of trouble. But here it is, and it strikes me, quite regardless of its contents, as being a very good job. Too bad that I can't read it. Of course if I were to read any of these things again I should jump out of my skin." "Let me say this: you have been generous in sending me ten copies, and while that seems to have been our agreement, I had forgotten it until Mr. Ney reminded me of it. The chances are that you cannot possibly come out whole, even if you sold the whole edition without difficulty and received the full price for each copy. If I am right about this, and my guess is that I am, don't think of sending me any money. The book is a handsome piece of work, and as it probably will be your first book I should be very glad to go along with you without any royalties or anything of the sort. In fact, it would jolt me to think of royalties under the circumstances." Also includes Alcestis: A Poetry Quarterly, N.Y. 1934. Volume 1, number 1 (the quarterly only four survived numbers) in which eight Stevens poems, including The Idea of Order at Key West, were first published. Edelstein B88. (The Table of Contents says seven). The Ideas of Order is Roman numeral V. Stevens' signature is a calligraphic nightmare and I took it to be "Lanac^ Drumm" one of his "ghostlier demarcations". Inscribed on the second front blank "To S. Foster Damon / who combined kind / deeds with kind / words / J R L Latimer." Stock#OB987. VG. The two are kept together in a clamshell slipcase by Jim Dimarcantonio of the Hope Bindery.
