Fanny Hill est une coquine. Elle naquit en 1790 dans un petit village de la Somme. À dix ans, ses parents étant morts de la petite vérole, elle rencontre un vagabond qui l'initie à des procédés qui ne sont pas de son âge. Bientôt, nous la retrouvons à Boulogne. Elle est la maîtresse du matelot La Carline, un joyeux drôle qui lui fait connaître Mylord Coloquinte. C'est ainsi que la fillette passe en Angleterre. Trois ans de concubinage avec Mylord Coloquinte, espion britannique, c'est beaucoup. Fanny l'empoisonne. La voilà lâchée dans Londres. Après quelques années de misère dans le sordide quartier de Whapping, elle a l'idée d'aller à King's Place, centre luxueux de la vie galante londonienne. À King's Place, les «maisons» sont accueillantes. Fanny Hill fait fortune. Elle parvient même à avoir une de ces maisons à elle. Mais ses aventures pour autant ne sont pas finies." (Quatrième de couverture, Coll. Folio Gallimard, 1986).L'illustration de Gaston Barret est très vivante et très sensuelle. Elle évoque parfaitement le milieu dans lequel évolue l'héroïne de ce roman.BEL EXEMPLAIRE DE CE JOLI LIVRE ILLUSTRÉ. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The first section of this work was composed during the war and was presented in 1944 at l’Exposition des Artistes du Livre in December of that year. Germaine De Coster [1885-1992] French artist and bookbinder is a great 20 Century figure of the the book arts. She first exercised her talents as an engraver and illustrator and designer of books. As a design student at L'École nationale des arts décoratifs, from 1911 to 1914, she studied under Jules Chadel and Yoshyiro Urushibara. Under their tutelage she learned design techniques used in China and Japan, which were little practiced in Europe at this time. She was an early illustrator of the livre d’artiste, continuing in the genre for 25 years. Later, she grew interested in fine bookbinding. In 1936 she joined the la Société des Artistes where she met Paul Bonet who included her in his salons. Her bookbindings, many done with colleague Hélčne Dumas are recognized internationally, and her earlier engravings on paper deserve to be. She was made Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur in 1946.

The Santa Who Was Late. Norman Press, 1951. Wraps. Norman W. Forgue (1904-1985), a lifelong resident of Chicago, started the Black Cat Press in 1932 while working for the Ludlow Typographic Company. Many of his early books owe a debt to the great typographer Frederic Goudy. Forgue was fairly progressive politically and aesthetically and established connections with some of the Midwest's more forward- thinking writers. He was the first to publish books by the African-American poet Frank Davis, for example, who later figured in Barak Obama's early life. In 1961 Forgue began publishing miniature books and the Black Cat Press became acclaimed for those books and known more for their miniatures than for small press items. The items in this collection date back to the earliest years, however, comprising a fine cross-section of books and ephemera - prose, poetry, bibliography, typography, holiday greetings, advertising - from one of Chicago's finest 20 th century small presses, many inscribed to a close friend of Forgue.

      -,, Paris, 1951 - Collage. Paris, -, 1951. ca. 41 x 48,5 cm. Gerahmt. Mit eighd. datierter Signatur. - Trägerpapier etw. wellig. - Adrian, (1930 - 2008), wurde in Wien geboren. Nach der Matura studierte er ab 1950 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien bei Fritz Wotruba sowie in Paris und Mailand. In den 50er und 60er Jahren stand der Künstler in einem Naheverhältnis zur Wiener Gruppe, er weitete das Feld der Bildhauerei und Malerei auf das Medium Film aus. Ausgangspunkte von Adrians Schaffen waren Plastik, Malerei, Op-Art, Computerkunst und konkrete Poesie. Parallel zu seinen literarischen, plastischen und bildenden Arbeiten schuf Adrian eine Reihe von avantgardistischen Filmen. Von Anfang an waren seine Streifen dabei eine Auseinandersetzung mit herrschenden Ideologien und behandelten Themen wie Gewalt, Sexualität, Macht und Staat, Wahrnehmung und Täuschung. Zunehmend begann er sich jedoch psychologisch-narrativen Themen zu widmen. Adrian gehörte in den 50er Jahren zusammen mit Peter Kubelka und Ferry Radax zur ersten Generation des österreichischen Avantgardefilms. Neben seiner künstlerischen Arbeit begann Adrian ab 1970, an künstlerischen Hochschulen u.a. in Hamburg, Cambridge und Wien zu unterrichten. 1988 war er österreichischer Vertreter bei der "Olympiade des artistes" in Seoul, Einzelausstellungen fanden zudem in Europa, den USA und Indien statt. Erste Auszeichnungen erhielt der Künstler bereits in den 60er Jahren: so wurde er u.a. 1992 mit dem Österreichischen Würdigungspreis für Filmkunst und dem ersten Preis der Kurzfilmfestivals "Filmzwerge" in Münster ausgezeichnet.

        Five Autograph Letters and one Postcard, signed, to Evelyn Moore Moise of New York City, regarding the apartment Wilson was subletting from her; with 2 Typed letters from Moise to Wilson

      New York, 1951. Four of the letters on New Yorker stationery, the last on letterhead of "Mrs. Edmund Wilson" of Red Bank, New Jersey; each of the 5 letters is one page. 1 vols. 8vo & 12mo. Very good, in a custom blue cloth folder with leather label. Four of the letters on New Yorker stationery, the last on letterhead of "Mrs. Edmund Wilson" of Red Bank, New Jersey; each of the 5 letters is one page. 1 vols. 8vo & 12mo. Wilson's Sublet. Interesting group of letters written to Wilson's landlady, from whom he was subletting an apartment at 11 East 87th, during a period when his play A LITTLE BLUE LIGHT was in rehearsal, and shortly before the death of his mother later that year. Discussions of the mundane issues (rent, gas, electricity and telephone bills) predominate, along with the usual NYC complaint: "the heating and hot water are not as strong as they ought to be ... we have only short spurts of heat and I don't find it helps much to speak to the janitor"). In his letter of April 17, Wilson requests a brief extension of his star in order to attend the opening of his play.

        The Albert Schweitzer Jubilee Book - "Royal Deluxe" edition

      Cambridge, Mass: Sci-Art Publishers, 1951. Royal Deluxe Edition. Full Gilded Leather. Near Fine/No Jacket as Issued. Every once in a while, a bookseller comes across a book that is not only beautiful because of its binding and signatures, but one that is a true historical document. This is the Royal Deluxe edition of Albert Schweitzer's Jubilee Book, published to raise money for his hospital with a book of twenty-six chapters and 508 pages (including an extensive index) covering topics about medicine, philosophy, music and others written by his colleagues, experts in their fields. It is numbered "Copy No. 23" of an unknown amount of Royal Deluxe editions and is signed by Schweitzer (winner of the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize) and 13 other medical, philosophical and social experts of the time, including the publisher A.A. Roback. (more about the signatures later in this description). This book is finely bound in dark red leather with bright gold accents, with a grey silk bookmark. It is in near fine condition, with a slight dryness to the beautiful leather (easily fixed with the proper dressing) but the covers are solid and beautiful with only minor rubbing on the corners. There is gold gilt on the top edge with minor touches of wear, marbled endpapers, and natural toning from age has darkened the pages but quite evenly. It is uncertain whether the book was privately bound or was published in this fine binding. There is a signed letter from the publisher, A.A. Roback, attached to a front page in which the publisher states the book was shipped directly from the publisher with the autograph sheets. These signature pages have been tipped in to the front of the book. Now the good part: Albert Schweitzer has signed the top of one of these early pages with a message in french: "avec mes bonnes pensees" (with my good thoughts). On the letter in the front, as mentioned, is the signature of A.A. Roback and on another page are 13 signatures by A.A. Roback (again) and 12 authors of many of the chapters in the book: (1) A.A. Roback (1890-1965), Ph.D. Polish-born psychologist, philologist, folklorist, and educator and publisher, edited the book and wrote Chap. I "Albert Schweitzer The Man" (2) Werner Jaeger (1888-1961), a 20th Century classicist, Professor of Classical Philology at Harvard University, wrote Chap. XX "Xenophanes And The Beginnings of Natural Theology (3) George Sarton (1884-1956), Belgian chemist and historian, Professor of the History of Science at Harvard University, considered the founder of the History of Science Discipline, listed on the title page and writer of the Epilogue, Chap. XXIII, "The Scholar's Dilemma;" (4) Sir Phillip Manson-Bahr (1881-1966), Director, Clinical Division, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, married the daughter of Sir Patrick Manson, founder of the tropical medicine field. An expert in his own right, he wrote Chap. XVII, "The Post-Graduate Teaching of Clinical Tropical Medicine;" (5) J.S. Bixler (1894-1985), Ph.D., President of Colby College, writer of Chap. II, "Productive Tensions in the Work of Albert Schweitzer;" (6) Clement C. Chesterman, M.D., O.B.E., Hon. Sec. British Advisory Bd. on Medical Missions, author on many books on tropical medicine, wrote Chap. XVIII, "The Strange Case of Dives and Lazarus;" (7) William Ernest Cooke (1879-1967), F.R.C.S.I., L.R.C.P.I., D.P.H, Superintendent of the School for Tropical Diseases in London, wrote Chap. XIX, "Medical Missions and the Future;" (8) Olof Linton, Theol. D., Professor of Exegetics, University of Uppsala, wrote Chap. XXII, "Albert Schweitxzer's Interpretation of St. Paul's Theology;" (9) Karl Vietor (1892-1951), Ph.D., Professor of German Art & Culture, Harvard University wrote Chap. XIV, "Lutheranism, Catholicism, and German Literature;" (10) Roland H. Bainton (1894-1984), B.D., Ph.D., was the Titus Street Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Yale University for 42 years, wrote Chap. XIII, "The Unity of Mankiind in the Classical Christian Tradition;" (11) Edward L. Thorndike (1874-1949), Ph.D., LL.D., Sc.D., Professor, Teachers College, Columbia University, His work on animal behavior and the learning process led to the theory of connectionism and helped lay the scientific foundation for modern educational psychology. He wrote Chap. VI, "Valuations of Achievements, Acts, Laws and Persons;" (12) A.T. Davison (1883-1961), Ph.D., Mus. D. (Hon.), F.R.C.M., Professor of Music, Harvard University, wrote Chap. VIII, "The Transcendentalism of Albert Schweitzer;" (13) Leo Schrade (1903-1964), Professor of Music History at Yale University; Professor and Director, Musicology Institute, University of Basel; wrote Chap. VII, "Schweitzer's Aesthetics: An Interpretation of Bach." A gloriously-bound work of history signed by men well established in their respective fields in the world of Albert Schweitzer, all of whom are no longer with us.
