Almanach de St-Petersbourg
1913. Cour Monde et Ville 1913/14. 4me Année. St. Petersburg [& Leipzig], 1913; xv. 676, xvi-xxxiv pp.; publisher's dark green cloth, lettered in gilt, red lettering-piece on spine, red edges; spine slightly faded and slightly dull, the leather lettering piece a little rubbed, two small, almost invisible stains on front cover, contents slightly embrowned, particularly in the extreme margins; marginal pencil stroke beside one entry; overall a very good copy, the two stains on the cover being more like small, slightly darker areas. A rare publication which contained all they wanted to know - who was who with addresses - this takes up most of the book -, services, where to get what (including perfume, champagne, automobiles, dresses, furs, jewellery, suits, pianos, furniture, but also "grottes pour aquariums", "glaces", "fruits secs", "fusils de chasse" etc. etc.), where to eat, where to stay, spas abroad, and a very great deal more. The Nabokovs head the Ns in the addresses section. Replete with advertisements, some full-page, many illustrated, two in colour. Mostly in French, though some of the advertisements are in Russian, German or English. The preface,by F.van der Hoeven, is dated "mai 1913".

Les Aventures de Maitre Tetu
0. et de Miss Docile. Conte Allegorique. Traduit de l'Anglais pour l'instruction de la Jeunesse. Paris: Delarue,& Lille: Castiaux, n.d. [c. 1820?]; oblong 16mo (c. 12.5 x 11 cm).; 63 pp. with frontispiece and seven plates, all wood-cuts, coloured by hand; publisher's printed boards, title within an decorative border on front, illustration within same border on rear board; lacking spine, boards marked and a little darkened, original owner's name on half-title, text lightly spotted. An extremely rare French children's book, printed in Lille, an allegorical moral purportedly based on an English original. Experts have been consulted in vain to find an English book of which this could be a version, but it could nevertheless have been taken from an English source which was part of a larger collection of moral tales. The wood-cuts (hand-coloured as issued) are bold and very good. Two bear the initials C.S.J. in the block. The allegory itself shows Master Headstrong led astray by letting himself be led by Passion, but finally finding the path to Virtue and Religion through the good offices of Reason.

Bilder Und Reime,
0. 1184. Reime und Bilder fuer Kinder. Erste [und Zweite] Lieferung. Dresden, bei J.Naumann. Pictures and Rhymes, Rhymes and Pictures, for Children. London, D. Bogue, n.d. [1844]; c. 16.5 x 12.5 cm.; English publisher's red cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, front board lettered in gilt with gilt pictorial vignette, yellow endpapers, a.e.g.; recased, one gathering detached, scattered foxing, some light finger-marks, light damp-stain to nearly half the contents. A rare and charming German illustrated children's book, which seems to survive as often as not in this two-language edition. This is not properly a bi-lingual edition, but the original Dresden edition, each page with a lithographed illustration and verse in German, printed on one side only, bound together with an English translation in letterpress of each verse, also printed on one side only. Compare the Oppenheim copy (Hauswedell & Nolte, Auktion 200 [1974], Lot 191, in later half leather), likewise German and English; Seebass II, 186 [offering just the Dresden Edition, a slightly cropped copy]: "Originalausgabe eines der feinsten Kinderbuecher der vierziger Jahre; es zeigt den Einfluss der Hey-Speckterschen Fabelausgben.."; Rümann, Die Illustrierten Bücher des 19. Jahrhunderts, No.1908. Hoff-Budde's 1922 bibliography of works illustrated by Ludwig Richter lists 29 of the 48 illustrations as lithographed after Richter. In our copy the first book of the German "Bilder und Reime" consists of illustrated title-page and 22 pages [of 24]: it lacks two pages - page 14 "Miesekaetzchen" and Page 16 "Der Morgen"; its first four pages were bound in the wrong order when the book was recased, while two other illustrations, pages 12 and 13, were misnumbered from the start by the printer. The second book of "Bilder und Reime" is complete, with title-page and 24 pages of illustrated text, though dampstained within the lower third of the pages. The English "Pictures and Rhymes" has one title-page, in letter-press, (as is correct,) and 47 (of 48) pages, the translator's "Preface" being printed on the verso of the first page of English verse; it lacks the text for "Puss". Photocopies of all the missing pages have been obtained and are supplied with our copy.

Fairy Tales, Selected from the Best Authors.
0. 1788. [Volume I]. London, Printed for W. Lane, Leadenhall Street,,1788; 12mo; [vi], 288pp..; contemporary sheep, spine gilt-ruled, red lettering-piece; front joint split, front board held only by its strings, loss of leather of spine all along the split in the joint;, boards slightly scuffed and marked; lacks frontispiece and [2] plates, top half of second leaf of prelims missing,, first gathering loose, corners of outer margins at the top of c. 20 pages cut round at some point,; contemporary owner's names on front paste-down, with 20th century bookplate super-imposed . Lane's "Tales of the Fairies" is very rare, even for 18th century fairy tale editions. Our copy is offered with all its faults because it is so rarely met with, but it has been tampered with by a former owner who wanted to conceal the fact that it was only the first of two volumes and that it had already lost its copper-plates: words on the title-page have been gently rubbed out - presumably "Adorned with plates" and "Volume I" - and the words "of the first" have been rubbed out at the bottom of the last page, so it no longer reads "End of the first Volume"; presumably part of leaf [ii] of the prelims - the contents leaf - was removed for the same reason. The contents are otherwise complete, and comprise; The Introduction. History of the Princess Hebe and the Fairy Anguiletta. Hitory of the Royal Ram or the Wishes. History of Graciosa and Percinet. History of Finetta. History of the White Cat. History of Princess Carpillona. History of the Pidgeon and Dove. History of the Yellow Dwarf.History of Young and Handsome.

Moon 359 (4), quoting from the "Guardian of Education": "..We have of late seen some Juvenile Libraries, in which this interesting history found no place; and, in our opinion, the work is amongst those which ought not to be superceded [sic] by others of inferior merit".

A rare encyclopaedic compendium of medical practice for German-speaking general practitioners of the time: "Wir haben bei seiner Abfassung hauptsächlich ein .. Bedürfnis practischer Aerzte, und zwar solcher zu befriedigen gesucht, denen die Vorsehung nichr Glücksgüter genug zugeworfen hat, um den zu einer nach Begriffen unsers Zeitalters eingerichteten Büchersammlung, erforderlichen Aufwand machen zu können." Sadly our set lacks Volume II. The remaining three offered here are firmly-bound and internally clean. The original owner, 'J.Nielsen', has entered his name neatly on the front free endpapers. The volumes are thick and would cost more in postage than is automatically allowed.

LE BRUN, ANNIE
Sur le Champ
. Paris, Editions Surréalistes, 1967, Avis au lecteur de Radovan Ivsic. Six collages originaux de Toyen. fine copy. number 846 of an edition of 900 copies, printed on fine pink Buvard Extra-Marais paper. black protected wrappers .illustrated with six collages et three pointes-sèches Issu de la collaboration entre l’auteure Annie Le Brun et l’artiste visuelle Toyen, Sur le champ est un livre surréaliste de quarante pages, respectant un format moyen de 25 centimètres par 16,5 centimètres. Aux quarante pages sur lesquelles cohabitent texte et collages s’ajoutent un justificatif de tirage - l’édition originale a été tirée en 900 exemplaires — et un achevé d’imprimé. Textes et collages ont été imprimés sur un papier buvard de couleur rose, matériel plus poreux que le papier régulier, rappelant la texture de la toile d’artiste. Originaire de Tchécoslovaquie, l’artiste Toyen est d’abord connue pour avoir cofondé le groupe surréaliste de Prague avec son ami, le peintre Styrský. En 1947, elle s’exile à Paris, prend part au mouvement surréaliste et collabore avec plusieurs artistes, notamment Annie Le Brun et Radovan Ivsich. While still a student, Annie Le Brun discovered the shock of surrealism; She read Nadja first, hand copying Crazy Love and the Anthology of Black Humor. Shortly after, in 1963, she met André Breton and took part in the activities of the surrealist movement until 1969, on the dissolution of the group. Later, against what she considered to be the programmed liquidation of singularity, love and distraction, she confided that "with the surrealists one breathed, if only to discover the multiplicity of horizons what will have opened this unique attempt in the twentieth century to think all man?" This is how she stood in the wake of surrealism, embracing her quest for "convulsive beauty" and her lyrical insurrection. In 1972, she found a collective activity around Editions Now founded by Pierre Peuchmaurd, with the poet and playwright Radovan Ivsic, who became her companion, as well as Georges Goldfayn, Gerard Legrand and the painter Toyen. The latter had illustrated in 1967 her first poetic book On the field. In these years, she wrote and publishes several other collections, which will be collected in 2004 in a single volume, under the title Ombre pour ombre. During this prolific period of creation, she co-authored, among other collections and essays, three hybrid works in which her poetic writing is combined with illustrations - both photographic and plastics - from different artists: The Crossing of the Alps, co-written in 1972 with Radovan Ivši? and illustrated by the photographs of the Italian sculptor Fabio De Sanctis; Nearby the nomads, a poetic collection illustrated by Toyen in 1972; and finally Annular Moon, poetic story also illustrated by Toyen in 1977.
