        Le Livre de la Chasse.

      Club du Livre - Philippe Lebaud, 1976. - Deux volumes in-folio : le premier est le fac-similé du manuscrit comprenant 138 feuillets. Le second de XXI et 58 pages: introduction et commentaires de Marcel Thomas, François Avril, Duc de Brissac puis Traduction en français moderne par Robert et André Bossuat. Parfait état intérieur pour les deux volumes. Plein daim fauve pour le premier volume et demi-daim pour le second, chacun dans son étui bordé de daim. En parfait état. Collection du Musée du Livre - Manuscrit français 616 de la Bibliothèque nationale . Paris. Grand chasseur, le seigneur médiéval était aussi grand amateur d'ouvrages de vénerie et de fauconnerie. En Angleterre, en Italie, en Allemagne, comme en France, les livres de ce type abondent, souvent traduits et retraduits d'une langue dans l'autre, représentés chacun par de nombreux manuscrits parfois admirablement illustrés. L'un des plus célèbres, voire le plus célèbre, est assurément le Livre de Chasse de Gaston Phébus, comte de Foix, dont la vie mouvementée et la complexe personnalité ont été si bien évoquées dans les Chroniques de Froissart. Ce traité de vénerie est écrit de mai 1387 à 1389 par le comte de Foix Gaston III (1331-1391), dit Gaston Phébus. Ce grand seigneur poète, habile politique et bon administrateur, ami et protecteur des lettres et des arts, vit entouré d'une cour fastueuse. C'est aussi un homme violent, responsable de la mort de son fils unique. Rompu aux exercices les plus brutaux, il est grand chasseur. C'est avec expérience et passion que Gaston Phoébus, alors âgé de cinquante-sept ans, rédige ce traité personnel et original, dans un excellent français ponctué de quelques caractères normands-picards, alors que sa langue maternelle est la langue d'oc parlée à la fin du XIVe siècle dans le comté de Foix. Il y passe en revue tous les aspects de la chasse médiévale, animaux à chasser, chiens, pages, valets et veneurs, pièges. BNF. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Last Waltz (Original poster for the 1976 performance)

      San Francisco: Bill Graham Productions, 1976. Original poster advertising the final performance by The Band at Bill Graham's Winterland in San Francisco on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976. Not to be confused with the resulting film of the same name directed by Martin Scorsese. By the mid-1970s, after a furious number of performances with The Band, Robbie Robertson had become road-shy and wanted to cap the great quintet's career with a grand finale in the place where they had begun. What began as a simple idea turned into a complex and expensive venture, as well as something of an interpersonal emotional tempest. But the performance, and the film that came from it, ironically immortalized The Band in ways that no one--probably not even Scorsese--ever expected. Poster designed by Bob Cato and Michael Manoogian, using elements from the work French surrealist Georges Hugnet. 20.5 x 28.5 inches. Rolled, on archival linen. Fine.

        Facsimiles of the Red Books for Anthony House, Cornwall; Attingham Park, Shropshire; and Sheringham Hall, Norfolk; with An Explanatory Volume by Edward Malins.

      London: Basilisk Press, 1976. Bound by Zaehnsdorf. No.10 of 500 numbered sets. 4 volumes, 3 being facsimiles and the fourth being an explanatory volume. Profusely illustrated excellently produced colour facsimiles of watercolour drawings and manuscript with overlay slips and flaps printed in collotype and letterpress and photographs by Eric de Mare. One folio volume, the rest being oblong 4to. This set has been specially bound for the owner by Zaehnsdorf in very handsome full red morocco with gilt lettering on the spine and upper cover, the explanatory volume is in the original half calf with beige cloth sides. A superb set. These three particular Red Books of Repton's designs were chosen because they mark important periods in his career and had a particular influence on English landscape gardening. The handwritten and illustrated volumes were made by Repton to show his clients the proposed improvements to their properties. He also used them to explain his theories on landscape gardening which he later expanded in his three printed books. Many of the watercolour drawing shave overlays showing first the site as it was and then, after opening the flap, how it would appear after Repton's improvements. The photographs in the explanatory volume take this a stage further by showing how they appear today. This specially bound set belonged to one of the initial subscribers to the project, the noted collector Hugh Fattorini. His bookplate is in each volume.

        The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill, complete in four volumes

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. This exceptional set of Churchill’s Collected Essays is the best-preserved example of the vellum bindings we have offered. This four-volume set is a compilation of most of Churchill's major forewords and periodical contributions, some of which can be otherwise found only in the original periodical publications. The essays are sorted by subject and each of the volumes has a theme - Churchill and War, Churchill and Politics, Churchill and People, and Churchill at Large. In addition to being bibliographically important, The Collected Essays are aesthetically appealing. The production quality is impressive. There were two publisher binding options for The Collected Essays - both sumptuous and one positively extravagant. The lesser of the two was bound in quarter blue morocco and is lovely, but does not match the other 34 volumes of The Collected Works. The more elaborate binding option was full natural calfskin vellum with individual green slipcases, matching the 34 volumes of the preceding Centenary Edition of Churchill's book-length works. The bindings feature Churchill's coat of arms stamped in gilt. The text is printed on special 500-year archival paper and decorated with marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, head and foot bands, and silk ribbon markers. Each volume is protected in a dark green leather slipcase with the Churchill coat of arms embossed in gilt on the front cover. Either binding of The Collected Essays is scarce, but this more elaborate binding is rarely seen alone, as it is essential to completing a uniform full set of The Collected Works. The vellum bindings were meant to tone and age naturally, but often yellow both considerably and unevenly. This particular set is the most attractive we have offered, with unusually bright vellum bindings with minimal toning that, when evident, has served only to highlight the natural features of the binding skins. Condition of the set appears flawless. The bindings are pristine with no signs of handling, perfectly square and tight with sharp corners and no visible wear. The contents are likewise immaculate, crisp and apparently unread, with satin ribbon markers apparently still in the original position placed by the publisher. We find no previous ownership marks. The gilt page edges are vividly bright with no discernible flaws noted. The green leather slipcases remain truly fine, with no bumps or visible signs of use other than some trivial shelfwear to the bottom edges. An exceptional example of an important work, with both compelling contents and striking shelf presence. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A286, Woods/ICS A146(b), Langworth p.355.
