        [The Novels:]

      London: J. D. Dent & Sons Ltd,, 1950-55. Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility; Northanger Abbey; Persuasion; Mansfield Park; Emma. 6 works, octavo (180 × 117 mm). Near-contemporary red crushed morocco, spines lettered in gilt with gilt motifs, gilt rules to boards and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Frontispiece and 15 colour plates to each volume. Spines sightly faded, internally fresh; an excellent set. An attractively bound set of the charmingly illustrated novels. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen within Macmillan's 1895-7 series (with introductions by Austin Dobson), Brock illustrating only Pride and Prejudice, and Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series was illustrated in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later, J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite, this time in colour, and to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. Dent's "Series of English Idylls" thus presents the first Brock illustrations for the complete Austen set and the first in colour. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and certainly his vision of Austen's world, its gentle graces and sharp ironies, is best expressed, as here, in colour. Furthermore, the colourful costumes and interior decor depicted in these illustrations are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, for Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

        LETTERATURA E ARTE CONTEMPORANEA (direttore ALESSANDRO BONSANTI) 1950 - 1951 TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO, Firenze poi Venezia, Carnesecchi poi Neri Pozza, 1950

      Questa collezione discende dalla affascinante avventura di Solaria e dei suoi due straordinari direttori. CAROCCI, Chiusa Solaria fondò la RIFORMA LETTERARIA con NOVENTA (1936 - 1939) , poi ARGOMENTI (1941) con Moravia ed ancora NUOVI ARGOMENTI (1953 - 1964). BONSANTI invece dopo Solaria accese la prima famosa serie di LETTERATURA (1937 - 1947), poi LETTERATURA ED ARTE CONTEMPORANEA (1950 - 1951) ed ancora altre serie di LETTERATURA 1953 - 1961 ed oltre . In mezzo usci' nel 1945 - 1946 un giornale fiorentino IL MONDO musicale e letterario - assai importante - in cui fu anche protagonista EUGENIO MONTALE. Va però anche ricordato che "Il Mondo di Pannunzio" ha radici in queste esperienze di Bonsanti e dei Solariani.
