        Quelques Sonnets de Ronsard

      (Segonzac, André Dunoyer de); Ronsard, Pierre de. Quelques Sonnets de Ronsard. Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1955. With 51 original etchings by Segonzac. Copy #49 with a suite on Japon, numbered and signed by the artist. (Total edition 210: 35 copies with two suites; 40 copies as this with a suite on Japon; 125 regular copies; 15 hors commerce). Laid in is an original pen and ink drawing of a reclining girl in lingerie by Segonzac, inscribed "pour les gourments de Ronsand and signed A. Dunoyer de / Segonzac." Folio (10 ½ x 13"; 25, 5 x 32 cm.) Bound in blue morocco with covers decorated in a renaissance style frame created entirely out of pointelle, from which sprigs of acanthus leaves sprout. Smooth spine ornamented in gilt and in pointelle. A simple yet exuberant binding. Mauve suede endpapers. According to Strachan, the classical tradition of book illustration reflected in the works of Rodin and Maillol is represented in Quelques' Sonnets, yet this "charming interpretation of the Renaissance poet" links tradition with innovation "with a free, sketch-like idiom" to the etchings. Segonzac, in "j'ai pensé à illustrer les sonnets de Ronsard", comments that he chose the subject of Ronsard's poetry after completing the illustrations to the Georgiques of Virgil. For his edition of Ronsard, Segonzac wanted a subject of delicate sensibility, elegance without affection and restrained sensuality. Segonzac worked eight years on the Ronsard from 1948 till 1956. For this edition, he enlisted the master printer Jacques Frélaut, who had printed the edition of Virgil's Georgiques. These etchings show on the whole a slightly more formalized style compared with those of the Georgiques. The text was printed in 24 pt Garamont Italique by L'imprimerie Nationale and the etchings printed by Jaques Frélaut on the presses of Roger Lacourière. All the plates were engraved in 1954 and defaced after printing. Binding by Thérèse Moncey, with Fache as doreur. Moncey's beautiful bindings have won le grand prix de la reliure française in 1950 and succeeded in numerous exhibitions. She has always used the great gilders "doreurs"of the period such as Fache.
