        Dubonnet. Vin Tonique au Quinquina.

      Original lithographed poster. Signed A.M. Cassandre [19]32. Printed c. 1950. 66x45 cm.. Adolphe Mouron Cassandre er en af det 20. århundredes største plakatkunstnere. Som uddannet billedkunstner og plakatdesigner var A.M. Cassandre meget bevidst om sin brug af typografi, og hans stil er stram, grafisk og inspireret af kubismen og art deco. Bedst kendt er Cassandres Dubonnet-mand, som er lavet i utallige versioner for vinselskabet Dubonnet. Sammen med Cassandres design af Yves Saint Laurents logo er Dubonnet-plakaterne blevet et ikon inden for branding- og reklamedesign. Nedre margin med bogtrykkermærke bortklippet.Printer brand cut off in lower margin. Cassandre became successful enough that with the help of partners he was able to set up his own advertising agency called Alliance Graphique, serving a wide variety of clients during the 1930s. He is perhaps best known for his posters advertising travel, for clients such as the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits. His creations for the Dubonnet wine company were among the first posters designed in a manner that allowed them to be seen by occupants in moving vehicles. His posters are memorable for their innovative graphic solutions and their frequent denotations to such painters as Max Ernst and Pablo Picasso. In addition, he taught graphic design at the École des Arts Décoratifs and then at the École d'Art Graphique. [Wikipedia]

        [The Chronicles of Narnia:]

      London: Geoffrey Bles [and] The Bodley Head,, 1950-1956. The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; The Horse and His Boy; The Magician's Nephew; The Last Battle. 7 volumes, octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in full morocco, various colours, titles and pictorial centre tools to spines gilt, rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a dark blue leather entry slipcase. With colour frontispieces and black and white illustrations by Pauline Baynes. An excellent set. All first editions, first impressions. A complete set of the much acclaimed Narnia series. "The immediate inspiration for 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' was a series of nightmares that Lewis had had about Lions. More seriously, he was concerned to do for children what he had done for an adult readership in his science fiction trilogy... The Narnia novels are not allegorical; they are entirely in keeping with the belief, shared by Lewis and his close friend and Oxford colleague Tolkien, that stories in themselves, especially of the mythical type, can give spiritual nourishment without imparting abstract meaning... As Naomi Lewis has written, the books are 'intoxicating' to all but the most relentlessly unimaginative readers, and must be judged the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a 20th century author".

        FIVE EARLY APPEARANCES IN SEVENTEEN MAGAZINE - 1950-1953

      Triangle Publications, Inc. 1950-1953, New York - Five large quarto issues (33.75cm); photo-illustrated wrappers; 144, 172, 128, 192, 200pp; illus. Publication sequence as follows: November, 1950; May, 1951; October, 1952; March, 1953; April, 1953. Light wear overall, with creasing and short tears to extremities, and minute loss to spine ends on three issues; Nov.1950 issue with dust-soil and foxing to front wrapper and text edges; Very Good-Very Good+. After receiving 50 rejection slips from an assortment of publications before a single piece of her creative writing was accepted, Plath was informed during her final term in high school that Seventeen would publish her story "And Summer Will Not Come Again" in their August, 1950 issue. The magazine would be the first mainstream publication where Plath's poetry and short fiction would be exposed, printing her work on eight occasions between 1950-1953. Her contributions in the present group include "Ode to a Bitten Plum," "a short, Keats-inspired poem in which the narrator, contemplating a plum, decides its seed represents more abstract concepts like time and eternity" (November 1950, p.104); "Den of Lions," a story based on her failed love affair with a boyfriend while attending Smith College (May 1951, p.127, 144-145); "It's All Yours" (story, October 1952, p.76, 100-104); "The Suitcases Are Packed Again" (poem, March 1953, p.91); and "Carnival Nocturne" (poem, April 1953, p.127). An attractive and uncommon group of early appearances. (See Alexander, Paul. Rough Magic: A Biography of Sylvia Plath, p.60, 65-77).

        Savrola.

      Monaco: A La Voile Latine,, 1950. Roman. Traduit de l'Anglais par Judith Paley. Illustré par André Collot de bois gravés en couleurs et en noir. Quarto (280 × 225 mm) Sheets loose in light card wraps within pale grey card chemise in matching card slip-case as issued. Original glassine jacket on the wraps, and the suite of plates "en noir" in the original glassine sleeve. Coloured wood-engraved frontispiece, and 22 similar half-page head-pieces, tail-pieces in black and white; original pencil and water-colour drawings for two of the head-pieces window-mouted in light card and loosely inserted, together with an additional suite of the illustrations in black and white. The slip-case a little tanned, slightly rubbed and starting on the joins, spine of the chemise similarly tanned, some offsetting from the illustrations, but overall very good. First edition thus, the second French edition, limited to 950, this number 12, one of twelve copies on "pur chiffon à la forme", accompanied by two of the original drawings, signed in pencil, and a suite of the illustrations "en noir". Far from Churchill's finest hour in literary terms; "He devoted only one paragraph in My Early Life to Savrola, concluding: "I have consistently urged my friends to abstain from reading it" " (Rose, The Literary Churchill, p.68). However, this edition is widely considered to be "the most elegant of all Churchill 'A' titles" (Cohen, "The Bibliography of 'Savrola'", in Finest Hour, 74, 1992, p.33), Cohen further describing this as a "magnificently illustrated edition". And Langworth stresses its importance to collectors: "The finest presentation of Savrola Â… this magnificent edition is overlooked by many collectors because it is not in English. They are missing a great deal. No serious Churchill library is complete without it". André Collot, the artist who provided the stylish suite of illustrations for this edition - which were in the St. Augustine's Press re-issue, published in association with the Churchill Center in 2003 - was a highly thought of illustrator who worked on editions of such classics as Kipling's Jungle Book, The Three Musketeers, Letters from my Mill, and Barbusse's La Feu, but is probably best known for his sometimes quite brutal erotica. Having utterly disowned Savrola in the past, on receipt of his copy of the present edition Churchill wrote to Collot expressing himself "surprised and greatly pleased to have received the beautiful edition of my little novel of sixty years ago Â… I am glad to find it is still alive. It will have an honoured place in my library" (Finest Hour, 120, 2003, p.41). An excellent copy of the tête de tirage of this superb edition.

        Dubonnet. Vin Tonique au Quinquina.

      1950 1950 - Original lithographed poster. Signed A.M. Cassandre [19]32. Printed c. 1950. 66x45 cm. * Adolphe Mouron Cassandre er en af det 20. århundredes største plakatkunstnere. Som uddannet billedkunstner og plakatdesigner var A.M. Cassandre meget bevidst om sin brug af typografi, og hans stil er stram, grafisk og inspireret af kubismen og art deco. Bedst kendt er Cassandres Dubonnet-mand, som er lavet i utallige versioner for vinselskabet Dubonnet. Sammen med Cassandres design af Yves Saint Laurents logo er Dubonnet-plakaterne blevet et ikon inden for branding- og reklamedesign. Nedre margin med bogtrykkermærke bortklippet.Printer brand cut off in lower margin. Cassandre became successful enough that with the help of partners he was able to set up his own advertising agency called Alliance Graphique, serving a wide variety of clients during the 1930s. He is perhaps best known for his posters advertising travel, for clients such as the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits. His creations for the Dubonnet wine company were among the first posters designed in a manner that allowed them to be seen by occupants in moving vehicles. His posters are memorable for their innovative graphic solutions and their frequent denotations to such painters as Max Ernst and Pablo Picasso. In addition, he taught graphic design at the École des Arts Décoratifs and then at the École d'Art Graphique. [Wikipedia] [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        LOT of 453 "UN MYSTERE" PRESSES DE LA CITE 1949-1965

      PRESSES DE LA CITE 1950's - LOT of 453 UN MYSTERE French Vintage Mystery Paperbacks from PRESSES DE LA CITE issued between 1949 and 1964. The UN MYSTERE ("A MYSTERY") series from PRESSES DE LA CITE represents the best of postwar French-language Vintage Mystery Paperbacks from France. There were 1-769 numbered Mystery titles (NB: numbers 647 & 766 do not exist) issued from 1949 to 1966 along with 9 RARE pre-numbered titles issued between 1947 and 1949 with roman numerals I-IX with each book also issued with a illustrated dust jacket. These 9 were a trial run and, based on their success, the numbered series started in 1949. (NB: None of these I-IX are present in this lot.) The publisher announced on the back cover of some titles that 2 titles a month were initially issued then 4 titles reaching 6 titles a month at its peak. Most titles in this series were translated into French from then contemporary American and British writers, along with some original French writers, notably Jean BRUCE, Jean-Pierre CONTY, and Gilles MORRIS, covering all aspects of the Mystery field from Whodunits, Detective and Hard-boiled to Suspense, Thriller and Espionage. Some of the American and British authors in this specific lot include: EDWARD AARONS, WILLIAM ARD, BILL BALLINGER, BEN BENSON, OWEN CAMERON, JAMES HADLEY CHASE, PETER CHEYNEY, JONATHAN CRAIG, URSULA CURTISS, SPENCER DEAN, CARTER DICKSON, FERGUSON FINDLEY, JOHN FLAGG, RAE FOLEY, ERLE STANLEY GARDNER (also as A.A. FAIR), ANDREW GARVE, WILLIAM CAMPBELL GAULT, HARTLEY HOWARD, WILLIAM IRISH (CORNELL WOOLRICH), ADAM KNIGHT, ED LACY, JOHN ROSS MACDONALD, J.J. MARRIC (JOHN CREASEY), WHIT MASTERSON, ED McBAIN, MARGARET MILLER, WADE MILLER, ELLERY QUEEN, PATRICK QUENTIN, PETER RABE, CRAIG RICE, MICKEY SPILLANE, THOMAS WALSH, LIONEL WHITE along with many others. ERLE STANLEY GARDNER was the most prolific writer in this series with a whopping 111 titles issued, many of these are included in this lot. However, the main attraction for Vintage Paperback collectors is the interesting cover artwork. Some early covers appear to be originals, but the majority are "cover swipes" taken from nearly all the American, and some British, 1950’s and 1960’s paperback publishers including: ACE, AVON, GOLD MEDAL, POCKET BOOKS, POPULAR LIBRARY, etc. These covers were partially redrawn presumably by French artists and, although this artwork is not as slick, many are still recognizable as being taken from other English language Vintage Paperback companies. The first 100 or so titles have some of the most attractive cover artwork and are generally the most difficult to find as First printings especially in better than Good condition. Individual titles appear for sale now and then, but large lots like this one are now simply RARE. This collection represents almost 60% of all titles issued by this publisher and is the result of many years of collecting. One would be hard pressed to find this many together! Five photos show a selection of titles in this lot, additional photos & scans are also available. A complete checklist of all 767 titles published will be provided to the buyer so he can see which titles are present. CONDITION: Early numbers especially those under #100 in this lot are in about Good (some better) condition with some spine creasing and edge wear, some light corner creases, the original sale price of 50¢ penned or stamped on some titles, however many of later higher numbers are generally Very Good (or better) condition. #007200 Price: $4500.00 (This is a heavy set of 453 books and will require additional postage. Please e-mail to confirm availability and correct postage before ordering.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]
