        Untitled.

      Screenprint on heavy paper, 70 x 70 cms. Signed 'Morellet' and numbered '1/90' in pencil to the lower side. As new. *Morellet is one of the great exponents of geometrical abstract art and one of the pioneers of minimalism. Only the second modern artist to have had his work hung at the Louvre Museum during his lifetime, he sees art as a system that is founded on the concepts of geometry. Since 1952, his work has been based on simple systems that play with chance. He uses different techniques, such as painting, sculpture, screenprint and neon lighting. Morellet also works in architecture. The works of François Morellet are displayed in the greatest museums of France, Germany, the United States, and the Netherlands, among others.

        The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

      London: Geoffrey Bles,, 1952. Octavo. Original pale blue boards, title to spine in silver, pictorial front endpapers. With the dust jacket. Housed in a red morocco slipcase and red cloth chemise. Black and white frontispiece and illustrations in the text by Pauline Baynes. Spine a trifle faded through the dust jacket with faint ghosting, spotting to fore edge and endleaves. An excellent copy in minutely nicked dust jacket. First edition, first impression. Dedication copy, inscribed by the author around the printed dedication, "With love [to Geoffrey Corbett] from Jack Lewis"; Lewis has also altered the first letters of the dedicatee's name, to read "Jeffrey". Laid in is an autograph postcard signed from Lewis to Jeffrey, dated 22 September 1952, shortly after publication (presumably in response to a thank-you letter for the book), congratulating him on having constructed a working wireless, noting "I should think the mice have a grand time in that wardrobe; there will be 100's and 1000's of them soon", describing a sighting of hares from his childhood bedroom in Ireland, and ending: "Someone has given us some Buffalo meat but I haven't tried it yet", signed with initials, "J.L." Jeffrey Barfield (born Geoffrey Corbett) was a foster child adopted by Lewis's close friends, Owen and Maud Barfield, and adoptive sister of Lucy Barfield, dedicatee of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the third published of seven novels in the Narnia series, was first published on 1 September 1952. Only six of the Narnia books have formal printed dedications, of which one is to a family; this is therefore one of only five personal dedication copies.

        Images à la sauvette; [together with] Les Européens

      Paris: Éditions Verve,, 1952 & 1955. 2 works, folio. Original lithographic boards by Matisse (Images à la sauvette) and Miró (Les Européens), titles to spines and front covers black. Housed in custom-made black cloth slipcases, front covers lettered in silver. Images à la sauvette: 126 half-tone plates; Les Européens: 114 half-tone plates; all printed by Pierre Gassman. Images à la sauvette: spine and board edges slightly toned, spine a little bumped at ends, small traces of tape to free endpapers; Les Européens: foot of spine and adjoining corner of front board bumped (with small split), a touch of rubbing to extremities, shallow indentations to centre of front board. An excellent set. First editions, first printings. A superb pair of presentation copies - rare in being both made out to the same recipient - inscribed by the photographer on the half-title of each work: "pour Henri Bourrillon, ami de mes amis photographes, Henri Cartier-Bresson" (Images à la sauvette) and "pour Henri Bourrillon ces quelques [crossing out 'Les' in the title] Européens, en hommage Très 'respectueuse'. Henri Cartier-Bresson" (Les Européens). The recipient was the prolific French writer and journalist Henri Bourrillon (1876?1962), better known under his pseudonym of Pierre Hamp, and described by his contemporaries as both "l'écrivain prolétarien" and "écrivain humaniste". The self-taught Bourrillon "left school at fourteen to become a pastry chef working in England and Spain before finding employment with French railways in the north of the country. He gradually rose through the ranks, becoming deputy stationmaster and inspector of works. He was also the head of a textile factory... He pursued studies with Charles Péguy, André Gide, and Charles-Louis Philippe. Hamp's vast experience inspired him to write more than 40 novels, a large number of which are grouped under the title of La Peine des hommes (The Lot of Men) and are close, often quasi-technical, and frequently critical studies of working-class conditions and activities. For example, Marée frâiche (1908: Fresh Tide), describes the fish industry, Le Rail (1912) the problems and factions within the world of the railways, Viv de Champagne (1913) all aspects of wine production, and Le Lin (1924) the treatment of flax and the cloth trade. His books were not always well received by those they described. Le Rail was banned from bookstands in railway stations, and Mes métiers (1930: Kitchen Prelude, 1932), on his experience as a pastry chef, prompted an outrage and a threatened lawsuit... He also produced a number of surveys - on the working conditions of miners, railway men, and children employed in industry... A member of the Socialist Party, an active trade unionist all his life, and a supporter of the Salvation Army" (John Flower, Historical Dictionary of French Literature, 2013, pp. 245-46) All of this enables us to draw together the threads that unite both writer and photographer in their humanitarian approach to life, a shared sincerity in their work and a genuine empathy with the working class and the poor; and while Cartier-Bresson's inscription in Les Européens is playful ("Tres [underlined] 'respectueuse'"), that in Images à la sauvette ("ami de mes amis photographes") seems to be closer to the spirit of "friend of the friends that I have photographed" - that is, humanity itself. On another level Hamp and Cartier-Bresson both had a connection with the textile industry: Hamp had been the manager of a textile factory and Cartier-Bresson's family had been in the thread-making business since the mid-nineteenth century. Perhaps Hamp would have noted in particular the photographer's image of a Russian textile worker alone at her loom in the cavernous interior of a textile works (plate 67 in Les Européens). Of Images à la sauvette Roth writes: "Cartier-Bresson's 'precise organisation of forms' has come to be the standard against which that of all other photographers is measured, and this book is its 'proper expression'. Cartier-Bresson met the writer and publisher Tériade (pseudonym of Efstratios Eleftheriades) in about 1932... Finally, in 1952, he was able to publish Images à la sauvette under his imprint Éditions Verve. The simultaneous publication of The Decisive Moment in New York in July 1952, with a cover by Matisse (who had just had his retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art) was a tremendous success". "The Decisive Moment is one of the greatest of all photobooks, and Cartier Bresson repeated its artistic success three years later with The Europeans... [he] is at his best when at his most universal" (Parr & Badger). The photographer would surely have approved of Hamp's reproachful remark, noted by Walter Benjamin in his essay on Paris and Baudelaire: "The artist... admires the column of a Babylonian temple and despises the factory chimney". Cartier-Bresson looked squarely at the factory chimney.
