        Vases d'Ornemens

      1992. LE PAUTRE, Jean. Vases d'Ornemens. Six etched and engraved ornamental floral plates by and after Le Pautre. Title platemark 229 x 140 mm, remaining platemarks approx. 207 x 142 mm. Loosely tipped into a large quarto blue half-morocco album. Paris: chez N. Langlois, [ca. 1665].|~||~||~||~| Outstanding impressions of the first issue of this suite of richly imaginative ornament prints by one of the masters of pure ornament design, and a creator of the Louis XIV style. The plates show ornate neo-classical vases from which emerge symmetrically scrolling foliage, arabesques, bouquets, festoons, vines, brocades, ribbons, etc. The base of the first vase bears the title; all six etchings are signed by Le Pautre with the above imprint. Two of the etchings show double vertical images of half vases, and a third shows two half vases plus three small ornamental compartments. The vases themselves are ornamented with classical and grotesque friezes, a cameo portrait, coquillages and sculpted flowers; one is supported by a pair of fantastical birds, another by a dog-like creature, a third by Bacchus; the title etching shows two putti leaning on the base and sketching a vase, while in the background three figures admire a drawing. "Einer der bedeutendsten und phantasiereichsten Ornamentstecher aller Zeiten" (Thieme-Becker), Le Pautre (1618-1682) began his career as apprentice to the cabinetmaker Adam Philippon, for whom he executed his first engravings, among the only examples of Le Pautre's vast oeuvre that were not based on his own designs. The combination of a fertile imagination and remarkable improvisational abilities - Guilmard claims that he was able to design directly on the plate - enabled him to create a huge body of work, mostly of ornament design, which consitutes a "veritable repertoire of what is called the Louis XIV style" (Bénézit), itself disseminated throughout Europe largely thanks to Le Pautre's prints. A lovely set, with brilliant dark impressions and the original imprint (erased in later issues). Inventaire du Fonds français, nos. 1992-1997. Cf. Thieme-Becker 23:96; cf. Guilmard. pp. 68-76.

Quarto, original black cloth titled and stamped in gilt. 21 + 19 pp, bound dos-a-dos together, two tipped in colour frontispieces. A very fine copy in dust jacket, as new. 956 copies printed, of which this is copy No. 38 of 355 hand-numbered copies intended for distribution in the United States.

Also included is a copy of the exhibition catalogue issued by Fulgur titled "AUSTIN OSMAN SPARE (1886 - 1956) A RETROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION (31st October - 14th November) to celebrate the launch of The Witches' Sabbath and Axiomata published by Fulgur. Organised by Angie and David Reed. Catalogued by Robert Ansell and Gavin W. Semple" (24 pp, card covers, tipped-in frontispiece, 333 copies issued). Also included is an original cheque dated 29th August, 1938, from Austin O. Spare to W.A. Love for two pounds and eight shillings, signed in full by Spare. ¶ The first publication issued under the imprint of Fulgur Press. Clive Harper in `Revised Notes Towards a Bibliography of Austin Osman Spare` (Mandrake Press, 2007), states "Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond the publisher`s control, a considerable proportion of the print run was destroyed (it has been reported that 700 copies were accidentally pulped) and so the books have a greater rarity than the stated limitation."

"The Art of the Maasai" presents for the first time three hundred extraordinary ceremonial artifacts - discovered by Gillies Turle and never before seen outside the villages to which they belong - that were created over many generations by members of the Maasai tribe of Kenya. What makes their discovery particularly exciting is that high art has been found in a part of the world in which, until now, it was believed no art had ever been created. The ceremonial objects brought together here are extraordinary, and Peter Beard's photographs of them are in themselves works of art. This is a book whose publication is an event in the worlds of art and African culture". A brand new, most handsome example of the 1992 Alfred A. Knopf first hardbound edition additionally BOLDLY SIGNED AND INSCRIBED "warm greetings from Peter Beard @ HOG RANCH / Box 47616 / nairobi" in deep blue watercolor ink across the entire front pastedown along with a portion of the inside front cover.
