        The Twelve Ravens: A Lithuanian Fairy Tale [SIGNED]

      München: T. J. Vizgirda, 1949. First edition. Hardcover. poor to g. Signed and dated on colophon. 528/560. 4to. 28pp. Original illustrated dustjacket over tan paper-covered boards with brown lettering on cover. Artist book illustrated with nine original woodcuts by Vaclovas Ratas, initials in plates, hand-set letterpress text. Translation revised by Mark J. Kinney and text edited by Paulius Jurkus. Volume XXVII of "Lithuania - Country and Nation." The woodcuts are similar to the German Expressionist style using stiff angular images and aggressive sharp broken lines.Dustjacket with major wear, bottom third of back part of dj and most of dj spine missing, flaps separated and various medium chips along edges. Binding with one-inch chip at head, and three-inch chip at tail of spine missing. Some sunning along edges of boards. Browning to pages of block not affecting text or images. Dj in poor, book in good condition. Though in poor condition, very rare with dj. Vaclovas Ratas' (1910-1973) work is known for his basic approach of simplicity, sincerity and his love for decorative values. His work is not true to one particular style but executed in varying styles and techniques. He was a founding member of FORMA in 1931, a group of seven Lithuanian artists and his work was exhibited internationally. In 1937 he was awarded the Prix d'Honeur for his woodcut illustrations in "Jurate and Kastytis," a ballad of the Lithuanian Poet Maironis. During his exile in Germany from 1945-1949 Ratas started his own art school and in 1949 created the nine woodcuts for "The Twelve Ravens." In the same year Ratas emigrated to Perth, Australia. "The speed with which the émigré artist embraced Aboriginal art is astounding. Vaclovas Ratas who landed in Perth in 1949 produced woodcuts that incorporated Aboriginal motifs by the end of that year." (Roger Butler). Ratas eventually settled in Sydney which was dominated by abstract art. He joined the Lithuanian artist group Aitvaras (The Goblin). Ratas Australian period is considered the least productive one though his style became more colorful and joyful.

      New York: Harcourt Brace, (1949). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine, lacking the dustwrapper. INSCRIBED by the author for William Archibald "with best wishes" and SIGNED by her "at Upper Grand View on May 26, 1956." Archibald, from Trinidad, wrote the book and lyrics for two musicals: CARIB SONG in 1945 and THE CRYSTAL HEART in 1960. The latter starred Mildred Dunnock and earned some praise from the critics including this comment by Harold Hobson of the 1957 London production: "I would rather have written this failure than successes like THE KING AND I and SOUTH PACIFIC." More to the point, Welty in the early 1950s corresponded with Archibald in the hopes that he would create a musical from her novel THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM, a project that never materialized. Laid into the book is a Christmas card from Welty to Archibald showing a Santa on the deck of a ferry named "Miss Noel." Inside the card Welty has written: "Variety tells me you went to Europe for beginning CRYSTAL HEART, so who knows when the Miss Noel will catch up with you. This is to say hello, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and fabulous success with the London opening [it closed after only four performances]. I'll be reading about it in the papers. All the best for 1957 from Eudora." Welty has also added a one-line note to Bean, Baldwin Bergersen, Archibald's companion and musical collaborator. Archibald's loose bookplate laid in with the adhesive stain from it on the front pastedown.

        L'Art non figuratif non objectif. Introduction de Pierre Peissi.- Exemplaire signé par l'artiste.

      P., Lydia Conti, 10 septembre 1949. 23 x 19 cm, 131 p., 7 pochoirs originaux en couleurs h.-t., 17 planches en noir dans le texte (expérimentation du prisme). Broché, couv. impr. Parfait état. Edition originale, tirage limité à 1000 ex. num., exemplaire signé par Herbin. Ce traité fondamental de Herbin est l'une des références majeures de la peinture abstraite de cette époque. Pour Auguste Herbin (1882-1960), la couleur a son langage propre, qu'il associe d'abord à des formes simples rythmiquement organisées, avant d'établir un système de relation étroite entre la couleur et la forme qui constituera l'originalité de l'uvre abstraite qu'il accomplit à partir de 1940 pour exprimer " une vision spirituelle de l'univers ". Il élabore un " alphabet plastique " fondé sur les couleurs pures combinées avec les figures élémentaires de la géométrie plane : cercle, carré, rectangle, triangle, losange. L'utilisation de cet alphabet est codifiée dans "l'Art non figuratif non objectif" que publie la galerie Lydia Conti. Herbin exerce une grande influence sur les jeunes artistes abstraits d'après-guerre.

        The Brontes: The Heather Edition - Six Volumes [Full Leather by Bayntun-Riviere]

      Allan Wingate. LEATHER BOUND. B01M5HTJPC Fine binding. 1949 Allan Wingate (London), six 5 x 7 3/8 inches tall red full leather bound volumes, all signed Bayntun-Riviere bindings, gilt ruled boards, five raised bands and gilt lettering and decoration to spine, all page edges gilt, marbled endpapers with gilt dentelles framing both front and rear pastedowns, title pages printed in pink and black, 528, 624, 558, 462, 528, 464 pp. (total 3,164 pages). Mild rubbing to covers, with a bit of slight wear beginning to appear to a couple of exterior front hinges. Otherwise, a very good to near fine set, and an outstanding example of the magnificent artistry of the historic Bayntun-Riviere bindery, which dates back to 1829. Reference: OCLC No. 14039702. Note that this is a heavy and oversized set, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~RCL~ A six-volume collection of key works of the Bronte sisters, the Heather Edition, arranged and introduced by Phyllis Bentley. Contents: v. 1. Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte. --v. 2. Shirley, by Charlotte Bronte. --v. 3. Villette, by Charlotte Bronte. --v. 4. The professor, by Charlotte Bronte. Poems. Miscellanea. --v. 5. Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte, and Agnes Grey, by Anne Bronte. --v. 6. The tenant of Wildfell Hall, by Anne Bronte. The Brontes were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Thornton in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte (1816-1855), Emily (1818-1848), and Anne (1820-1849), are well known as poets and novelists. Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature. .

        8 letters signed. Milan, 27 July 1949 through 16 February 1950.

      1949. Nine pages, on eight quarto and octavo leaves. In Italian. Occasional creases and minor isolated foxing, very good. Accompanied by typescript translations. Manzù here writes extensively to Marcelo de Ridder, gallery owner and art dealer in Buenos Aires, concerning the nuts and bolts of an exhibition of his works de Ridder is organizing for late 1949. Always polite, but frequently exasperated, Manzù deals with burdens he feels are de Ridder's responsibilities (customs, shipping, etc), and is justifiably upset when, on 27 December 1949, he writes: "La mia mostra si è aperta e chiusa a mia insaputa senza nessure sapere dagli organizzatori la minima notizia, e questo nonostante le mie risetute preghiere, alle quali non è mai stato risposto. Non ho avuto nemmeno il Catalogo della mostra. Di tutto questo sono veramente stupito, veda di avvicare a quel minimo di gentilezza informandoni almeno dove si trovarro ora le mie opere [...]" ("My exhibition has opened and closed unbeknownst to me, and without my having received the slightest notification from its organizers, despite my repeated requests which were never answered. I did not even receive a catalogue of the exhibition. I am truly amazed at this, could you try to at least have the courtesy to let me know where my works are now [...]", transl.). The 16 February 1950 letter is far more conciliatory and grateful, perhaps as a consequence of having received the exhibition documentation and photographs, with which he is pleased, as well as received proceeds so far of "two hundred thousand lire". - Manzù is most widely known for his public works of sculpture, including the bronze doors at St. Peter's Basilica and two reliefs for Rockefeller Center, but was accomplished and prolific in other media as well. During WWII, his anti-Fascist drawings forced him underground, and in 1968 he was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize for his public stance against Western policies in Southeast Asia.

        The British Colour Council Dictionary of Colours for Interior Decoration

      3 volumes, in red leather slipcase; 2 swatch volumes bound in red leather in a screw fastening binder, text volume bound in matching red buckram. 21 fold-out sheets of colour swatches in volumes 1 and 2; 30 pages of text in volume 3. 378 colours pictured in 1099 swatches. English. 285 x 225mm (11¼ x 8¾). 3.5kg.A scarce colour sample book, with all samples present. These three volumes were produced by the British Colour Council with an intention to standardise colours across the interior decoration trade. A decorator could use their copy of the dictionary to specify to a manufacturer exactly which colour they wished to achieve. The books became an invaluable aid and, although over 7,000 copies were printed, few survive because they were used so extensively as working tools. Each of the 378 colours are shown on three surfaces - matt, gloss and pile fabric (carpet). There are 35 colours where no pile fabric sample is included because 'it was not considered advisable to dye that particular colour on pile fabric owing to the possibility of fading or discolouring in a comparatively short space of time'. Volume 3 includes a list of the colour names and their history.

        WATER COLOUR PAINTING OF SNOWDROP (SNOW WHITE) AND THE SEVEN DWARVES. Original watercolour Illustration published in Grimm's Fairy Tales.

      ORIGINAL FULL COLOUR ARTWORK. The watercolour image shows Snowdrop (Snow White) lying asleep at the edge of a forest. Stood over her is a handsome Prince dressed in elaborate multi coloured outfit with a large hat in his hand, complete with many different coloured large feathers. Gathered below are the seven dwarves, three with tears in their eyes,all with lit candles strapped to their hats. Many birds and a fox and rabbit and a squirrel also feature. A beautiful full colour watercolour. At the bottom of the image is written, in pencil "Grimms Fairy Tales-(frontispiece)-Snowdrop". The painting is signed with Baynes' Spread Eagle design in the bottom right corner. Image size is 8.6 x 5.6 inches. Mounted, framed and glazed to give a total size of 15.6 x 12 inches. Published as the frontis for a 1950's edition of Grimm's fairy tales issued by Blackie & Son Limited, London and Glasgow in their Blackie's famous books series. Through a contact I had who knew Pauline Baynes I sent a copy of the illustration to her shortly before she died to see if she could supply an more information. All she could remember was that she had painted it for the publishers Blackie in about 1949 as part of a series of watercolours for an edition of Grimm's fairy tales that was issued in the early 1950's. I have not been able to find a copy of that 1950's edition but do have a copy of a 1960's reprint with only one full colour plate, this painting, as the frontispiece. Other scenes painted by Baynes from Grimm stories illustrate the dustwrapper but Baynes is not credited as illustrator. A very good copy of the book, in original illustrated dustwrapper is included. A beautiful painting by one of the great twentieth century book illustrators, best known for her work on C. S. Lewis' Narnia series and J. R. R Tolkien's Tom Bombadil, Farmer Giles of Ham and Smith of Wooton Major.
