        Street Merchants in Saint Petersburg].

      Maison de l'Eglise St. Pierre St. Petersburg third quarter of the 19th c. - Collection of 22 (possibly out of 24) hand-coloured lithographs, printed on thick paper, captioned in Russian and French. Dimensions: 12 x 8.8 cm. Scarce set of charming hand-coloured lithographs showing various street merchants rarely included in other similar works. Our set has a number of dissimilarities compared with the one in the collection of Gubar and in the depositories of Harvard University library: lithographed cards from our collection are unnumbered and have coloured backgrounds; some figures and captions have minor discrepancies, others feature different street merchants, not present in the Gubar's and Harvard's sets. Rare: not in the usual bibliographies, in particular not in Hilers' compilation nor Thieme-Becker, and apparently no copy in the UK, the Library of Congress and the NYPL. Cf. Dar Gubara, Sobranie, 3037-347 (vol I) & p. 193 (vol II); Ot azbuki Ivana Fedorova do sovremennogo bukvaria (Moskva, 1976), p.88.

      [Northampton, Mass.]: The Gehenna Press, 1976. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Baskin, Leonard. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 42 p. Inscribed by Author(s). Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) was an artistic genius whose works almost defy categorization. Eminent in sculpting, illustration, printmaking and also as a typographer and printer, he pursued multiple art forms all of which have, as an underlying thread, social consciousness and a high regard for humanity (N.B., above information from the website of the Galerie St. Etienne). Mr. Baskin founded The Gehenna Press in 1942 while at Yale University, taking his inspiration from William Blake's example as both a poet and an artist/bookmaker. This book, published by the Gehenna Press in 1976, contains 19 drawings by Baskin of various mythological and frightening humans and beasts, and features an ORIGINAL PENCIL SKETCH of the head and upper body of a skeleton, signed by him and dated 1992; on the facing page he inscribed the work: "for ----- from Leonard Baskin". ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in marbled paper boards, black leather spine label with gilt lettering, plain endpapers, blue paper title page printed in red and black, the original pencil sketch on the recto of the flyleaf prior to the title page with the inscription facing, the sole text in the book following the title page comprised of a quote from St. Bernard of Clairvaux, the book was printed by Harold McGrath in the autumn of 1976 "on various interesting papers" (per the book's colophon). The printed illustrations are indeed on various papers both in type and colour, one printed in red and black and the rest printed all in black. Quarto size (approximately 11.25" tall), unpaginated with 20 printed leaves (all type and illustrations on rectos only), limited edition of 450 copies, this no. 107, SIGNED BY BASKIN on the colophon page in addition to the personal inscription at the front, prior bookseller ticket at the bottom of the rear pastedown. ***CONDITION: Overall near fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, straight corners with a minimum of rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and other than Mr. Baskin's sketch and inscription it is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is some light overall edgewear, else fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

The book was adapted into a 1992 Robert Redford film, starring Craig Scheffer and Brad Pitt and would receive three Academy Award nominations.

      "12º, half leer, 315 + (3) p., ill. Boekblok los in de band, maar verder goed exemplaar. Titelschildje met gouden letters op versierde leren rug. Op laatste blz een halve blanco pagina uitgesneden. Lit: Niet in Bodel Nijenhuis (cf 2605); niet in Lipperheide, niet in Colas; G. Aders e.a., Die Grafen Van Limburg Stirum, Teil I, Band I, Assen 1976, p.231-232"."Eerste druk van een zeldzaam boekje over Friesland door P.J. Gauthier. Pierre Joseph Gauthier (1784 - 1851) was een , 523, man die van 1810 tot 1813 te Sneek werkzaam was voor de , 523, e registratiewetgeving. In 1813 ging hij terug naar Frankrijk om zijn loopbaan te eindigen als “maire” van Seurre. Hij was gehuwd met Charlotte Johanna van Limburg Stirum (1790 - 1828) en noemde zich “Gauthier-Stirum”. Het boekje is voor een groot deel gebaseerd op zijn herinneringen uit de jaren 1810-13, maar geeft ook recentere informatie, zoals over de watersnood van 1825. Er bestaan drie edities: in 1839 verscheen een tweede druk (titeluitgave) in Auxonne, met slechts één afbeelding en uit 1863 dateert een derde editie.
