[TRADE CATALOGUE OF LUXURY FURS].

Folio. With five exquisite pochoir plates of elegant fur coats placed on an intense yellow background and five b/w plates with fifteen photographs in heliogravure by Felix within yellow frames. Bound in sophisticated yellow embossed paper boards by Devauchelle with printed label on upper cover within a pretty decorated frame in colour. Original printed covers bound in. First and only edition of this stunning fashion catalogue. Revillon Frères, originally founded as Maison Givelet in 1723, was a famous French fur and luxury goods company. It was purchased by Louis-Victor Revillon in 1839, successfully developed with establishment of new fur boutiques in London, New York and Montreal in the 1860s. Their success encouraged the creation of a profitable fur industry in Europe and North America. In the early 1900s, French fashion designers such as Madame Isidore Paquin and Paul Poiret introduced stylish fur garments in their regular fashion collections. Mme Paquin had developed a method of processing fur so that it would be softer and more comfortable to wear. Her fur coats and other fur decorated clothing were in great demand by the socially prominent women of that period (Hansen, 1956, Costume cavalcade, p. 100). A superb specimen of an extraordinary work.

 SÃÁGUY, EUGÃÀNE ALAN:, Papillons. Paris, Tolmer editeur 13 Quai d'Anjou, ca 1928.
SÃÁGUY, EUGÃÀNE ALAN:
Papillons. Paris, Tolmer editeur 13 Quai d'Anjou, ca 1928.
Folio (33 x 45 cm). Pp. (4) and 20 pochoir plates including 16 of butterflies (depicting 80 different varieties) and 4 with decorative abstract patterns. As issued loose in original cloth backed white boards with cloth ties. Upper cover decorated with a large coloured butterfly in pochoir and lettered in silver and black. First and only edition of this spectacular Art Nouveau design album. The plates depict exotic and intensely coloured butterflies from India, Africa, the Himalayas, South-East Asia, China, New Zealand and South America, enlarged in size, but reproduced faithfully in form and colour in a mixed technique of collotype and stencil in watercolour or gouache. Eugène Séguy (1889-1985) was one of the foremost French designers at the beginning of the 20th century, working both in the Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles. He produced eleven albums of illustrations and designs, of which this portfolio is considered the most magnificent. Besides being an artist Séguy was trained as an entomologist, eventually becoming Director of the Laboratory for General and Applied Entomoloy at the Musée National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. In the Papillon collection he presents images of exotic butterflies in a very sensitive as well as artistic way. The pochoir technique is especially suited to the subject, allowing the artist to convey the intensity of colour in the butterflies' wings. The four last plates depict 16 decorative abstract designs derived from the butterflies' shimmering patterns. A most wonderful copy.

TZARA, TRISTAN / DELAUNAY, SONIA (ILLS.):
Le coeur à gaz: costumes de Sonia Delaunay. [Paris], Jacques Damase, [1977].
Narrow folio portfolio. Size: 21 x 45 cm. As issued on heavy paper. With 51 numbered pages printed on recto only on (17) folded sheets + 2 pages and one blank. Comprising the text of the play "Le coeur √† gaz" by Dadaist writer Tristan Tzara. Accompanied by twelve lithographs by Sonia Delanay. Comprising seven theatre costumes by Sonia Delaunay which are colour reproductions of the gouache maquettes made for the performance at Th√©√Ętre Michel in 1923, two more double page lithographs (one issued as extra title page and one with two costumes) and three lithographed decorations in the text. Original card covers with striking design in black, red and cream. Housed in specially made plexiglas slipcase. Limited edition of 150 copies, of which this is no. XXI (of XXV reserved for collaborators) on this publication and signed by S. Delanuay on the colophon. (The first 25 copies in the series were accompanied by a supplementary suite of 7 signed lithographs). A gorgeous copy of this beautiful and rare work. Tristan Tzara (1896-1963) was the renowned Roman born writer and artist who was known for being one of the central figures of the anti-establishment Dada movement. His noted play "Le cŇďur √† gaz" was first staged as part of the 1921 "Dada Salon" at the Galerie Montaigne in Paris. It was written as a parody of classical drama in the form of an absurd dialogue between characters named after human body parts; mouth, ear, eye, nose, neck and eyebrow (Tzara himself). The second stage production, also titled "Le CŇďur √† barbe" was performed at Th√©√Ętre Michel in July 1923. Sonia Delaunay, the famous Ukrainian-born French artist, designed and costumed the production, creating bright coloured eccentric geometrically-shaped costumes of thick cardboard. The play has been viewed as the final event in the evolution of Dada as a cultural movement.
