Cet avocat républicain convaincu, passionné d’histoires locales, de littérature et d’archéologie, consacra les dernières années de sa vie à recueillir de la bouche des membres de sa famille et de son entourage, ce qu’il nomma « Chansons et poésies populaires recueillies dans l’Albigeois ». On lui doit plusieurs ouvrages notamment l'Idylle vénitienne, Des Riens, une traduction des Pastorales de Théocrite, Graffiti d'amour, On luit doit également ce bon mot qui donne assez une idée de son esprit badin : « Une femme vertueuse est celle qui, avant d'entrer chez son amant, ôte son alliance et enlève de sa chaîne sa petite médaille sainte. »SUPERBE ILLUSTRATION DE PAUL-ÉMILE BÉCAT, D'UNE DÉLICIEUSE SENSUALITÉ.

        L'Hôtel des Neiges".

      1950 - Gouache signée en bas à droite, titrée en bas à gauche, 1947, 24.5 x 35 cm. Jean-Denis MALCLES (Paris 1912 - 2002) est un peintre, affichiste, illustrateur et décorateur de théâtre français. Il illustra notamment Bel Ami de Maupassant, et figura dans les principaux Salons parisiens de peinture. Mais c'est son travail qui le fit connaître : on lui doit notamment la création du costume des Frères Jacques et de plusieurs affiches de cinéma ou de théâtre dont celle de La Belle et la Bête de Jean Cocteau. Il fut le collaborateur privilégié de Jean Anouilh pour la plupart de ses pièces. Il a également créé au cours des années 1950 et 1960 les costumes et les décors de nombreuses productions lyriques à l’Opéra de Paris, l’Opéra-Comique, au Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, au Covent Garden de Londres ou à la Scala de Milan mais aussi d'opérettes comme La Vie parisienne. "Son art dans toutes ses manifestations s'inspire d'un surréalisme apaisé. " (Bénézit, VII, 113). Il signe ici un décor pour la comédie en 3 actes de Robert Boissy "Hôtel des neiges" mise en scène par Robert Dhéry en 1946, avec Agnès Capri, Colette Brosset, Christian Duvaleix, Pierre Destailles, Renaud-Marie et Claire Gérard. Dans un style presque naïf, une grande pièce évoque le rez-de-chaussée d'un chalet. Les fenêtres composées de petits carreaux sont blanches de givre, les murs sont habillés de planches, deux chaises, une banquette couverte de velours rouge, une table avec quelques feuilles forment son mobilier. Taches et salissures marginales. Oeuvre originale

        Some Notes on No. 26

      San Francisco, CA: Three Fingers Press, 1950. Soft Cover. Very Good. 48mo - over 3" - 4" tall. Book shows a publication date of 1950, but it was actually released in 1951. Handcrafted, string bound, heavy card wrappers with 14 uncut leaves upon which are mounted a number of original photographs and ephemera relating to the Virginia and Truckee Railroad's heavy Ten-Wheeler locomotive, No. 26. Very nice shape. There are over 20 original photographs and significant pieces of ephemera that "have with loving care been gathered, collated, hand set, pasted, bound up and cursed into book form . . . on the first anniversary of the demise of V & T No. 26." The book includes a signed 3-page essay about the demise of small railroads and a description of the loss of the No. 26 in an engine-house fire in 1950. Photographs include images of the train at work as well as its flaming destruction. The ephemera includes a 1876 V&T bank check, a 1878 invoice, a timetable, and a bill of lading. The author was a mining engineer and research mineralogist who worked for the Aurora Creek Gold Mining Company and at Stanford University's School of Mineral Sciences, where he published a number of scholarly articles and monographs. A rabid rail fan, Beatty focused his hobby on the railroads of Nevada and Eastern California. Although unspecified, the distribution of this work was no doubt quite limited. Very scarce. As of 2016, no examples are listed in OCLC, no auction records are reported by ABPC or Rare Book Hub, and only one other copy is for sale (for $2,000) in the trade.

        Inward Companion. Poems.

      London: Faber and Faber Limited, 1950 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles gilt to spine direct and on red ground, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Laid-in material detailed below. Spine toned and rolled, scattered faint mottling to cloth. A very good copy in the dust jacket with a toned and slightly chipped spine, crease along front panel top edge and a few nicks. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To Margaret, with love & infinite blessing from Jack, Oct 13 '50" on the front free endpaper. The recipient was Margaret Newbolt (née Duckworth), the wife of De La Mare's literary patron Henry Newbolt, who died in 1938. It was the "eager championship" of Newbolt that in 1908 secured for De La Mare a royal bounty grant of £200, a sum that encouraged him to leave his job at Anglo-American Oil, where he had spent eighteen years in the statistics department, and devote full-time himself to writing (ODNB). This copy with a superb collection of ephemera illuminating the enduring relationship between De La Mare and the Newbolt family, including: Autograph letter signed from De La Mare to Margaret Newbolt (addressed as "Ma"). Single leaf (114 × 177 mm), with De La Mare's Hill House letterhead, writing on recto and verso; three faint vertical creases from folding, excellent condition. De La Mare sympathetically expresses his concern at the health of Margaret and Henry's son Francis: "when he was with us that Sunday I thought he looked very tired & almost wished he hadn't taken the journey though it was such a joy to see him. I am hoping & praying & believing that he will soon be better Please give Margaret & Harry & Nancy my love – they know how my heart is with them in this trouble". Francis (1893-1966) married Nancy Triffit in 1921. They had two children: Peter (b. 1923) and Anne (b. 1926). Margaret was the first given name of Francis's older sister, Celia (1890-1975), and Henry was known to his friends as Harry. Typescript of "Sheep", an unpublished doggerel poem by De La Mare, with his signed holograph dedication to Peter Newbolt, Henry's grandson through his Francis, reading "To Peter, hoping that / in spite of ALL / he didn't lose his WOOL / from W. J. dlm". Single leaf (263 × 202 mm), verso blank; creased from folding, 14 mm closed tear to central transverse fold to not affecting text, very good condition. Five stanzas of four lines, beginning: "As I skipped into garden, / My heart gave a leap. / For where once was a tatie-patch / Now was all Sheep!" Peter Newbolt, "The Astonishing Memory of Walter De La Mare", journal clipping, docketed Time and Tide, 30 June 1956 (305 × 145 mm). Peter recounts how De La Mare "sent me every Christmas into well into my schooldays a large box of chocolates With each box came a card inscribed by De La Mare". He quotes one written in a similar style to De La Mare's inscription to the "Sheep" typescript: "ALL best wishes / Pies on Dishes I mean the above / And send my LOVE." Typed letter signed from J. E. L. Bashford, secretary of the Old Cliftonian Society, to Lady [Margaret] Newbolt, extensively annotated by De La Mare in pencil on the verso. Single sheet (205 × 125 mm), with the Old Cliftonian Society letterhead and dated 13th June, 1942; single transverse crease from folding, slight foxing, very good condition. Bashford informs Margaret that a plaque commemorating her husband, shown in an enclosed photograph (not present), "is being stored in the strong room under this building for the duration of the war, when it will probably be erected in the Ante Chapel. At present the School buildings are being occupied by the Army." Henry Newbolt notably celebrated his alma mater Clifton College in two of his best-remembered poems - Vitai Lampada and Clifton Close. In his note on the verso De La Mare voices reservations about the project: "There seems to be no alternative to suggesting that the design etc should be remachined [sic] - & that appears to be impracticable Who paid f [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Photo Album]: Palestinian Refugees in Jordan

      1950 - Oblong octavo. String tied green cloth. Blank black leaves with tissue guards for each page. Small label on rear pastedown of "Persekian, Book-Binder / Box-Maker, New Gate, Jerusalem." Near fine with slight wear on the boards; the images fine. 19 glossy gelatin silver photos, each approximately 4" x 6", mounted one per leaf. The majority captioned in English with white album pen. The images depict Palestinian refugees being given aid at Kasr el Halibat [Qasr Al-Hallabat], Jordan by the Near East Combined Committee for Refugee Work (also known by its acronym NECCRW). The images show Bedouin children and adults happily collecting their goats or textiles, Sheiks of the Othman Bedouin meeting with NECCCRW representatives and the desert patrol, and Bedouin camps. While the images are relatively few, they are well-done and show a little documented element of the upheaval in the region. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
