Ensemble complet et en parfait état. Le 6 novembre 1925, écrivain et journaliste célèbre, Colette achète à Saint-Tropez, à la Baie des Canebiers, une petite maison pour laquelle elle a le coup de foudre. Elle la nomme La Treille Muscate. Dans le jardin qui descend jusqu’à la mer, du raisin muscat prolifère en effet au milieu d’un hectare d’arbres fruitiers, de fleurs et de légumes. "Je l’ai trouvée au bord d’une route que craignent les automobiles, et derrière la plus banale grille une maison petite, basse d’étage. sa terrasse est couverte de glycine. la mer limite, continue, prolonge, ennoblit, enchante cette parcelle d’un lumineux rivage ( ). Ici je suis libre maintenant de vivre, si je veux, de mourir, si je peux." Elle viendra ici tous les étés et c'est dans cette maison qu'elle écrira son livre "La naissance du jour" dont voici un extrait : "Est-ce ma dernière maison? Je la mesure, je l'écoute, pendant que s'écoule la brève nuit intérieure qui succède immédiatement, ici, à l'heure de midi. Les cigales et le clayonnage neuf qui abrite la terrasse crépitent, je ne sais quel insecte écrase de petites braises entre ses élytres, l'oiseau rougeâtre dans le pin crie toutes les dix secondes, et le vent du ponant qui cerne, attentif, mes murs, laisse en repos la mer plate, dense, dure, d'un bleu rigide qui s'attendrira vers la chute du jour." Elle délègue l'entretien du jardin à Etienne, "le professionnel du sécateur". Elle veut des fleurs qui attirent les oiseaux et les papillons. Elle veut des légumes, car "un jardin doit nourrir". Sa table offre à Kessel, Carco, Dunoyer de Ségonzac et bien d’autres, melons verts, anchoïade, riz aux favouilles, rascasse farcie et beignets d’aubergine, bouillabaisse, aïoli. Dunoyer de Ségonzac dessinera du reste la Treille Muscate et c'est lui qui illustrera le très beau livre écrit par Colette en 1932 et qui porte le nom de la maison "la treille Muscate". Mais la ville perd peu à peu de son charme et surtout de sa tranquillité. "En 1931, il y avait dix yachts dans le port, une horreur !" dit-elle. La réputation de Saint-Tropez s'étend. Celle de Colette aussi. Il n'est pas rare de voir des curieux devant sa maison. En juillet 1938, elle n'en peut plus, elle écrit à une amie "J'ai une envie terrible de Bretagne et de marées. Si nous en trouvons l'occasion nous dirons adieu à La Treille Muscate, et nous rechercherons un coin de mer vivante." En juin 1939, elle vend la villa à l'acteur Charles Vanel. Mais elle continuera à fréquenter la Provence "Même si le climat ne vaut rien aux vieilles arthrites." Aujourd'hui La Treille Muscate est propriété privée. Elle est parfois ouverte à la visite lors des Journées Européennes du Patrimoine. (notice internet extraite du site Le Var, La vraie nature du Sud). Ce texte a été publié pour la première fois en 1932 avec des illustrations de Dunoyer de Segonzac (tirage unique à 165 exemplaires seulement, extrêmement coté et recherché - 12.500 euros broché et 25.000 euros relié en maroquin en 2017 à la Galerie Paul Blaizot). Cette édition donnée par Marcel Lubineau est tout à l'honneur de la simplicité bucolique que décrit Colette au fil de ses pages de souvenirs autour de sa villa et du petit port [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Henri-Camille Wampach (1884 -1958) besuchte das Athenäum in Luxemburg und studierte anschließend Theologie am Priesterseminar in Luxemburg. Nach der Priesterweihe 1908 und kurzer Tätigkeit als Koadjutor schloss sich ein Studium der Geschichte und der Diplomatik an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin an, das er 1915 mit einer Promotion zur Geschichte der Grundherrschaft Echternach abschloß. Zum Wintersemester 1931/1932 erfolgte die Berufung an die Universität in Bonn als Dozent für luxemburgische und westeuropäische Geschichte, wo er 1935 zum Honorarprofessor ernannt wurde. Weil er aus nationalsozialistischer Sicht als politisch unzuverlässig galt, wurde ihm 1941 die Stellung entzogen und der Professorentitel aberkannt. In der Folge lebte er in Echternach als Hilfsgeistlicher. 1946 wurde er erneut zum Honorarprofessor in Bonn ernannt, nahm die Lehrverpflichtung aber kaum war, sondern widmete sich seinem Hauptwerk, den hier vorliegenden „Urkunden- und Quellenbücher zur Geschichte der altluxemburgischen Territorien". Sehr dekorativ gebundenes Exemplar in annähernd tadellosem Zustand!

        Autograph letter signed, with inscribed photo

      Autograph letter signed ("Henry Miller") to Mr. Musgrave, Big Sur, 31 July 1955. One page, 4to, in two color inks, inks somewhat toned, tipped to mount. Framed with a black-and-white photograph of Miller, inscribed. Miller sends Musgrave two watercolors -- "Village by the Sea," "Greek Boy -- and the silkscreen "Hindu Wedding." The photo shows Miller standing with a paintbrush in his hand, a watercolor and supplies on the table before him. He inscribes the reverse: "In living room at Partington Ridge 1954. Return to Henry Miller Big Sur California." The recipient is presumably Victor Musgrave, British poet, art dealer, and curator -- a pioneer as a champion of Art Brut who often bragged that he was the only dealer to not wear a tie.

      [Paris]: [Ambroise Vollard], 1955. Portfolio worn, plates in fine condition, with full sheets. 21 large woodcuts after Picasso by Georges Aubert. Suite with several on pale blue paper. Loose in portfolio. These cuts had been commissioned by Ambroise Vollard and were done at about the time Picasso illustrated the 'Chef d'Oeuvre Inconnu', and were issued as an additional suite for 'Hélène chez Archimède' by André Suarès. One plate is reproduced in Uma Johnson's 'Ambroise Vollard.' Apparently only 50 copies of this separately-issued suite were published.

        Head of Blake.

      - c. 1955. Cast bronze sculpture approx 7 x 7 x 5 inches. Portrait sculpture of William Blake. "Based on the life mask taken in 1823 by James S. Deville a phrenologist, when Blake was in his sixty-sixth year, Baskin's bronze portrait of 1955 is extremely faithful to the original, emphasizing, as the mask does, those peculiar bulging forms of the forehead, the unusually deep convexity of the eyelids, and the deep slash of the downward-curving mouth that probably led Blake to joke about his 'active physiognomy.' It is said to have been Blake's jest that the shape of his forehead made him a republican - which in his time meant a revolutionary," Irma B. Jaffe (The Sculpture of Leonard Baskin, 1980).
