         [Photo Album]: New England Family featuring Boy Scouts and the Portland to Montreal Pipeline

      Maine, 1960. Near Fine. Oblong quarto measuring 10" x 12". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with gilt decorations. Contains 208 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs and 3 later color photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 3.5" x 5.5" with captions. Photo album is very good with detached but present pages, small tears, and spotting with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a New England family between 1902 and 1960. The album details a variety of family events including trips and vacations. The album is not in chronological order and begins with photos of a Boy Scout Troop from Dracut, Massachusetts between 1923 and 1924. These photos show the troop in group photos during their "1st Overnight Hike" in New Hampshire. The boys are seen cooking, starting fires, and hiking in candid snapshots. The next section documents a trip to Quebec in 1902 with photos of Montmorency Falls and the Quebec Zoo. In 1919 the family who kept the album bought a home in Dracut, Massachusetts. The photos document the changes they made to the house, including the addition of a sun porch, and the changing of seasons. One caption reads, "several large Baldwin apple trees in full bloom added to the beauty of the spring." The album shows the beauty of the New England landscape with photos of waterfalls, rock faces, and beaches as well as working on the family farm.One section of six photos shows the welding of the Portland to Montreal pipeline in 1941. The pipeline began as a response to the oil shortages Canada was facing in World War II. The decision was made to take crude oil from Portland, Maine to Montreal with a pipeline which measured approximately 236 miles. The photos here show the construction of the pipeline, digging ditches, laying pipe, and welding. One photo shows the joining of the pipe at "the line," the border between the U.S. and Canada. Another photo shows an aerial view of the pipe "looking North."The later part of the album is a collection of travel and family photos through the 1960s. Many of the photos are taken in the 1940s depicting picnics, campsites, and road travel, including a section of photos from a camping trip to Mt. Katahdin, the highest mountain in Maine, in September of 1942. These photos show people hiking up the Dudley Trail featuring snapshots of the Knife Edge peak and Chimney Pond. Later in the album the family visit Keene, New Hampshire and New York as well. The New York photos show Radio City's ice rink, Grant's tomb, and the library at Columbia, among other tourist sites. A few of the photos are in color from the 1960s and show an older couple posing together. An extensive New England family album featuring boy scouts and the homefront during World War II.

         Botteghe Oscure.

      Rome: [De Luca Editore], 1948-1960 - 25 volumes, octavo. Original printed buff wrappers. 8 volumes (IX-XVI) with wraparound bands; 9 volumes (XVII-XXV) with dust jackets. A few unopened volumes. Wrappers and jackets slightly toned with lightly creased and nicked extremities, text blocks lightly toned. An excellent set. Complete collection of the semi-annual literary journal Botteghe Oscure, with the 1949 Rome issue of Volume I (Volume I was first published in 1948 in Naples). Founded by Marguerite Caetani in Rome in 1948 and named after the street on which the editorial office was located, Botteghe Oscure was an explicitly international literary magazine, both in scope and distribution. "In twelve years it published writers from thirty countries in five languages: English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish. Most contributions appeared in the original, with no translation; the only exceptions were made for texts written in less common languages like Greek, Korean, or Dutch, which were translated into English Caetani wanted to create something different from the publications that populated the Italian literary scene in the 1940s, which she described as 'historical, critical, political, dry as dust' in a letter to her half sister, poet Katherine Biddle" (Lucamante, Elsa Morante's Politics of Writing, p.106). Caetani, together with Giorgio Bassani, her one constant collaborator and editor for the Italian section of the magazine, sought to support both established and unknown authors and published contributions by the likes of W. H. Auden, André Frénaud, Giuseppe di Lampedusa, Guglielmo Petroni, Nelly Sachs, Edith Sitwell, Dylan Thomas, and William Carlos Williams, among others. [Attributes: First Edition]

         FLORILÈGE. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. VINGT GRAVURES SUR CUIVRE DE MADAME *** [AMANDINE DORÉ]. Poésies érotiques

      Sans lieu, ni nom, ni date [vers 1960] - ans lieu, ni nom, ni date [vers 1960] 1 volume grand in-4 (32,7 x 25,7 cm), 77 feuillets, en feuilles, couverture rempliée, titre imprimé en bleu sur le premier plat de couverture. Chemise cartonnée à dos de papier parcheminé (manque l'emboîtage). Livre et chemise à l'état proche du neuf. Belle impression sur papier BFK de Rives. Édition de bibliophilie imprimée à 195 exemplaires seulement. Celui-ci, 1 des 25 exemplaires sur papier de Rives BFK avec une suite en sanguine des 20 planches avec remarques sur Rives teinté. (il manque à notre exemplaire le croquis d'une remarque annoncé à la justification). Le volume s'ouvre sur une Présentation restée anonyme mais fort bien écrite : " (.) Si l'on en croit montrer aujourd'hui, en face de la licence et du parler couillu, une sorte de honte ou d'hypocrisie qui nous oblige à rabaisser la cotte de nos femmes à boutonner nos braguettes, cela tient sans doute à l'anémie de notre temps. (.) Il fallait, pour transposer sur le cuivre les évocations de ces carmes inspirées par l'Aphrodite Populaire, la main d'une femme : elles sont toujours pudiques, jusque dans leurs suprêmes abandons. Seule, une femme était capable de traduire les plus ardents gestes de l'amour avec une caressante poésie." Référence : Dutel, Bibliographie des ouvrages érotiques publiés clandestinement en français entre 1920 et 1970, n° 1584 : "Anthologie de textes publiée vers 1960. Elle est ornée de 20 gravures hors-texte attribuées à Amandine Doré. Amandine Doré serait la descendante de l'illustre Gustave Doré (mais rien n'est moins certain selon les sources). Née en 1912 elle meurt en 2011 âgée de 99 ans ! Elle débute comme illustratrice puis touche au domaine galant. Sous son nom de naissance sa production est licencieuse mais est plus érotique sous le pseudonyme de Madame ***. Au moment d’entrer dans la vie du romancier t’Serstevens (ami de Blaise Cendrars), Amandine suit des cours aux Beaux-Arts et se destine au professorat de dessin. C’est son frère André Bonne, qui est éditeur, qui l’envoie chez t’Serstevens pour qu’elle étudie avec lui la possibilité d’illustrer un texte sur les corsaires. Amandine, devait être encore adolescente quand il l’a connue au début des années quarante alors que lui avait dépassé les 55 ans. C’est en 46 qu’ils se sont mariés à Tahiti. T’Serstevens avait 61 ans! Amandine débute alors une activité d’illustratrice de voyages pour les livres de son mari, aquarelle et pointe sèche notamment. Elle a illustré en particulier de ses charmants dessins la plupart des livres que t’Serstevens a publiés après les voyages faits en commun après la guerre: Polynésie (ils y ont séjourné trois ans), Espagne, Mexique, Sicile, Sardaigne, Iles Eoliennes, Grèce, Maroc, etc. Elle dessine même des foulards tout en continuant une production galante. « Ce que Redouté a fait pour les roses, elle l’a fait pour l’hibiscus, le pua, le tiare, le frangipanier et tant d’autres merveilles de cette flore excessive dont elle n’a abandonné que les parfums » dira d’elle t’Serstevens, dans son introduction au volume 3 de son œuvre « Tahiti et sa couronne ». Son oeuvre érotique est abondante et remarquable de sensualité. Bel exemplaire, tel que paru, de ce beau livre illustré érotique à très petit tirage avec suite.

      London: Collins and Harvill Press,, 1960. Translated from the Ialian by Archibald Colquhoun. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine very slightly rolled, very occasional foxing internally, slight spotting to edges. Otherwise, a fine copy in the bright jacket, head of spine very so slightly creased, short closed tear to base of spine. First edition in English, first printing. First printed in 1958 in Italian, The Leopard or Il Gattopardo became the best-selling novel in Italian history. Lampedusa failed to get his brilliant tragicomic satire of Sicilian aristocratic life during the Risorgimento published in his lifetime, and when it was published it was immediately attacked from both the Right, for his portrayal of aristocratic lassitude and decadence, and the Left, for his ruthless send-up of the Italian unification and his depiction of the Sicilian proletariat.
