        Beautiful Jaipur.

Befriedigender Zustand, Schutzumschlag leicht beschädigt und mit Gebrauchsspuren, Ecken am Einband leicht beschädigt, innen gut, textsauber. Titelornament. Mit zahlreichen ganzseitigen s/w-Abbildungen auf Tafeln. Sprache: Englisch. -- Mr. Cartier-Bresson came to Jaipur, accompanied by his talented wife, on the auspicious occasion of the marriage of Princess Premkumari Sahiba in August, 1948 and revistied the palace in the same month when he stayed for over a fortnight. He developed a liking for Jaipur and its colourful scenes and took a large number of photographs for some foreign journals. The photographs were attractive and presented an artistic picture of Jaipur. We, therefore, requested him to allow us to issue some of these in an album. He readily agreed to the suggestion, and also persuaded his friend, Mr. Max J. Olivier, representative of the French News Agency in India and the President of the Foreign Journalists Association of New Delhi, to write a pen-picture of Jaipur which forms an introduction the the album. Mr. Max Olivier also contributed captions to go with the photographs. The photographs and the text have been incorporated here in their original form and provide an interesting picture of modern Jaipur as seen by two distinguished Frenchmen. (...) We are glad that we are now able to present to our readers this album which represents the joint work of Mr. Cartier-Bresson and Mr. Max Olivier. (Klappentext)

(achevé d'imprimer et justificatif de tirage). Etui fendu et recollé, très bel exemplaire par ailleurs. - Tiré à 282 exemplaires, tous sur papier d'Auvergne fabriqué à la main au Moulin Richard-de-Bas, 1 des 30 exemplaires contenant une suite des gravures en couleurs et une suite en noir sur même papier (N°15), deuxième état après 12 exemplaires contenant un cuivre en plus. Vignette de titre, 3 culs-de-lampe et 13 illustrations en couleurs, dont le frontispice, de Roger Wild, la mise en couleurs a été faite à la main par Edmond Vairel. Beaux envois autographes signés de Mac Orlan " A Monsieur Fernand Buffnoir, en amical hommage à un maître imprimeur, ces belles images de Roger Wild pour sa belle collection. Pierre Mac Orlan " ; et de Roger Wild " Je suis heureux Monsieur Fernand Buffnoir, maître imprimeur, de voir scintiller votre nom au seuil de ce livre. En haute estime de pensée, Roger Wild, juin 1948 ". Roger Wild (1894-1987) " Né à Lausanne en 1894, d'un père vaudois et d'une mère espagnole, Roger Wild fait des débuts "précoces, souriants, liés au Montparnasse de la préhistoire" et se lie avec Modigliani, Max Jacob et André Salmon. Après la guerre, d'où il revient décoré de la Croix de Guerre et de la Légion d'Honneur, ses talents de peintre et de dessinateur, son sens de la fantaisie et "un penchant fatal à faire autre chose que ce que lui commanderait le souci de sa carrière" le désignent comme une recrue de choix pour l'Araignée. De Wild, Gus Bofa écrit : "Il dévore ses modèles morts de peur et les restitue vivants." Cet admirateur de Toulouse Lautrec et Pascin dessine la faune des champs de foire et des cirques, quand il ne s'inspire pas de l'Espagne et de la tauromachie. On lui doit les illustrations, entre autres, de Parades abolies de Pierre Mac Orlan, ainsi que de nombreux portraits d'écrivains pour des journaux littéraires; portraits qui ont été réunis en trois albums, Visages contemporains, préfacés notamment par Léon-Paul Fargue et Paul Valéry. Il meurt en 1987. "La richesse de l'univers picaresque de l'artiste est moins faite de détails que d'une atmosphère transposée à miracle dans un style d'une précision presque hallucinée. (.) C'est la vie qui bouge; celle des passions, des idées, des sentiments, qu'il aime surprendre. Ses synthèses sont inimitables, définitives." ". Jean-Marc Campagne, Le Crapouillot, janvier 1959.

Levi-Strauss's first book, his dissertation (thesis). Inscribed on upper wrap by Lévi-Strauss. Extremely Rare ! Les Nambikwara ont été observés par Claude Levi-Strauss lors de son expédition de 1938. Il en fit le sujet de sa thèse complémentaire de doctorat en 1948 (La vie familiale et sociale des indiens Nambikwara. Lévi-Strauss reprendra ces observations dans Tristes Tropiques publié en 1955 et fera ainsi largement connaitre les Nambikwara. Ils se distinguent par une culture matérielle réduite au minimum, ignorant même le hamac. Leurs voisins Paressi les appellent d'ailleurs "ceux qui dorment à même le sol". Leur activité est dépendante du cycle saisonnier. Durant la saison sèche ils se divisent en bandes de quelques familles et vivent de la chasse et de la cueillette, les femmes agrémentant le repas de quelques baies sauvages, racines et, au besoin, de lézards et de sauterelles. Durant la saison des pluies quelques bandes se réunissent au sein de villages provisoires où ils pratiquent l'agriculture (maïs, manioc, tabac, arachides, etc.) et la pèche. Aujourd'hui (2008), certains groupes habitent des maisons construites en feuille de palme et s'allongent sur des lits en bois ou sur des couvertures. Lors de son séjour, Lévi-Strauss comprend qu'il assiste en direct à l'agonie d'un peuple. Il décrit "une société humaine réduite à sa plus simple expression, diminuée", des "pouilleux" qui vont nus comme des vers. [wikipedia].
