         Passiflora caerula or blue passion flower].[Lekzigt, near Dordrecht?, ca. 1780?]. Folio. (43 x 27.5 cm). Watercolour drawing on laid paper, signed on the back by the artist, "J. van der Vinne Jzn.". Attached by the top corners to a (19th-century?) wove millboard mount kept in a modern passe-partout.

      - Hans van Leeuwen Collection II: 18th and early 19th century Dutch and Flemish master drawings, Amsterdam, Christie’s, 24 November 1992, lot 430; for the Van der Vinne family: Scheen, p. 551. A beautiful, large watercolour drawing of a blue passion flower (Passiflora caerula, image 42 x 27 cm), by the Haarlem painter Jan Jansz. van der Vinne (1734-1805), showing a vine with two flowers fully opened and another closed, as well as numerous leaves, buds and runners. The passion flower is indigenous to South America, but became a popular ornamental plant in Europe due to its exotic and spectacular appearance. Jan Jansz. van der Vinne no doubt learned to paint from his father Jan van der Vinne (1699-1753), a member of the Haarlem painters' guild best known for his flower and landscape drawings. Before Jan Jansz.'s botanical drawings came to light he was best known for his landscape drawings and etchings, but it now appears that his flower drawings were his most important work.In fine condition. A beautiful botanical watercolour, showing the spectacular passion flower.

It is the '30s, and we meet the old corps, as it existed between WW I and WW II -- on station in Shanghai, at Quantico, in Washington, all nicely contrasted with civilian life stateside. But the calendar is moving relentlessly toward a fatal day in 1941. When it comes, we understand why nothing could ever be the same again -- and what it's going to take to win the awful conflict into which we have been bloodily and unpreparedly thrust.

      New York: The Limited Editions Club [Printed at Horton Tank Graphics], (1992), 1992. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Clemente, Francesco. Number 269, quarto, 41 pp., signed by Francesco Clemente. Ezra Weston Loomis Pound (1885-1972) was a major figure in the early modernist movement; his early poetry was devoted to the development of Imagism, a movement derived from classical Chinese and Japanese poetry, stressing clarity, precision and economy of language. Of this work, Cathay, Chinese critic Wai-lim Yip writes: "One can easily excommunicate Pound from the Forbidden City of Chinese studies, but it seems clear that in his dealings with Cathay, even when he is given only the barest details, he is able to get into the central concerns of the original author by what we may perhaps call a kind of clairvoyance" (N.B., above info from Wiki). ***DESCRIPTION: Fully bound in light blue-grey linen, embossed decoration on the front board, all text pages french fold, the seven colour woodcuts bound in throughout the text; type Monotype Lutetia, text printed on handmade Japanese Ogawashi paper, large quarto in size (almost 11.75" tall), pagination: (i-iv), (1)-34, blanks (35-36), colophon (37); limited edition of only 300 copies, this no. 269, signed by the artist.

The monthly newsletter is fine, with only the original fold and no edgewear. The matching slipcase is fine overall, strong and sturdy; there is one short, light mark on the back, 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.

         Cathay, Poems After Li Po

      The Limited Editions Club [Printed at Horton Tank Graphics], (1992), New York - Number 269, quarto, 41 pp., signed by Francesco Clemente. Ezra Weston Loomis Pound (1885-1972) was a major figure in the early modernist movement; his early poetry was devoted to the development of Imagism, a movement derived from classical Chinese and Japanese poetry, stressing clarity, precision and economy of language. Of this work, Cathay, Chinese critic Wai-lim Yip writes: "One can easily excommunicate Pound from the Forbidden City of Chinese studies, but it seems clear that in his dealings with Cathay, even when he is given only the barest details, he is able to get into the central concerns of the original author by what we may perhaps call a kind of clairvoyance" (N.B., above info from Wiki). ***DESCRIPTION: Fully bound in light blue-grey linen, embossed decoration on the front board, all text pages french fold, the seven colour woodcuts bound in throughout the text; type Monotype Lutetia, text printed on handmade Japanese Ogawashi paper, large quarto in size (almost 11.75" tall), pagination: (i-iv), (1)-34, blanks (35-36), colophon (37); limited edition of only 300 copies, this no. 269, signed by the artist.
