        Poems de Charles d'Orleans

      Paris: Ateliers Mourlot Freres for Editions la Revue Verve, 1950. Lithographic portfolio of one hundred sheets measuring 410 x 265 mm., with additional limitation leaf; in excellent condition within the original folding decorated wrappers, with the publishers slipcase. Signed by Matisse. Limited edition of 1,200 copies signed by Henri Matisse.A warm, vibrant and joyful celebration of life - here Henri Matisse celebrates the elusive mystique of medieval love poetry of through this magnificent lithographic portfolio. The troubadour poet Charles d'Orleans lived from 1394-1465 and is believed by some to be the sender of the first Valentine's Day gift. His poems are veiled yet alluring, a perfect source of modern artistic inspiration.Matisse worked upon this magnificent livre d'artiste in 1943: it was printed some years later by the master fine art lithographer Fernand Mourlot in 1950. Mourlot is credited with reintroducing lithography as an art form in the twentieth-century, and his studio in Paris was frequented by Picasso, Chagall, Dali and others. This is a remarkable portfolio, filled with fresh and spontaneous decorative patterns or floriege based on the tapestry tradition of the royal fleur-de-lis. Significantly, there is no letterpress as Matisse wrote the poems by hand for the lithographic printing process. The work is remarkable for its confidence and youthful vigour, created by the elderly Matisse at 73 years of age. Poems de Charles d'Orleans combines the spontaneity and irreverence of a modern artist with the high chivalry and mystical love of the Middle Ages.

        The Cocktail Party

      London: Faber and Faber Ltd,, 1950. A comedy. Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, preserved in a green cloth chemise within a green quarter morocco slip-case. Spine a little sunned otherwise an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy from Graham Greene and his lover Catherine Walston to the writer Norman Douglas, inscribed on the front free endpaper in her hand: "To Norman Douglas, with love from Catherine, Anacapri June 1950" and in Greene's hand: "and with great affection from Graham." Also punningly inscribed in Douglas's diminutive hand: "British literature is suffering from sleeping sickness owing to the T.S.E. T.S.E. fly" - a play on T. S. Eliot's initials and the tse tse fly which causes sleeping sickness. A typically mischievous comment by Douglas as Greene did not share his opinion of Eliot. A wonderful association copy, linking Greene and Catherine Walston: "she was the great love of his life and the inspiration for his powerful novel about the pains and pleasures of adultery, The End of the Affair (1951)" (ODNB). It also links the couple to a long-time resident of Capri, Norman Douglas. "[Greene] loved Capri... [and] was particularly friendly with... Norman Douglas. He met Douglas, hedonist and sybarite, in 1948 soon after he had bought Rosaio [his villa on Capri] with the proceeds of The Third Man... Greene was fascinated by him... Douglas was tolerant, pagan in outlook, and railed against hypocrisy, puritanism and smugness" (Norman Sherry, The Life of Graham Greene, II p. 246-249). Also with the bookplate of the American writer and newspaperman Vincent Starrett (1886-1974) and inscribed at the head of the half-title: "Vincent Starrett, 19 Aug. 1953".
