[Louis-Emile Edmond]. THÉATRE DES MARIONNETTES DU JARDIN DES TUILERIES. Texte et composition des dessins par M. Duranty. Paris: Imprimerie de Dubuisson et Cie., (1863). First edition. Illustrated with 24 hand-colored plates and with 25 color vignette illustrations laid-down on text pages within a printed double-rule border. [2] ff., ii, 387, [3] pp. Quarto, 11 by 7.5 in. (28 x 19 cm), in a modern binding of red cloth-backed marbled boards, with a black morocco spine label, and the original printed paper wrappers bound-in. The text is comprised of a brief introduction followed by the texts of 24 plays performed at the puppet theater in the Tuilieries Garden. Each play is accompanied by a full-page plate and has a vignette illustration laid-down at the head of the first page. The plays and illustrations feature Commedia dell'arte characters such as Polichinelle, Arlequin, Cassandre, Le Gendarme, Le Diable, Columbine, Pierrot, and Le Sorcier. Although this copy lacks the dedication page and has some scattered light foxing throughout, it is otherwise complete and attractive, having bright and lively illustrations, and in very good condition. Edmond Duranty (1833-1880) was an author and influential art critic, being the first to write an insightful analysis of Impressionism in 1876. Initially a champion of Realism, having co- founded the monthly journal Réalisme in 1856, and having writtenseveral novels in the Realist-Naturalist style in the 1860s, he became a champion of the new Impressionist art after 1863 when Emilie Zola introduced him to Impressionist painters. Edouard Manet and Edgar Degas became good friends, and Degas painted a great portrait of him in 1879. References: Vicaire III: 534. Sorensen, Lee. "Duranty, [Louis-Emile] Edmond Duranty."

[FASHION - WOMEN'S - PERIODICAL] LE PETIT MESSAGER DES MODES ET LE CONFIDENT RÉUNIS: TOME VII, NOS. 1-17, 22-24; TOME IX, NOS. 1-13, 15-17.Paris: Imprim. Schneider et Langrand, 1847 and 1849. Thirty-six issues illustrated with 72 lovely hand-colored engraved plates, of which 33 are by Héloise Leloir and 12 by Laure Colin Noel.

Quarto. Text: 2,7-136,169-192; 104,113-128,121-128 pp. 10 1/4 by 7 in. Nineteenth-century binding: quarter black morocco, marbled boards, gilt title on spine, marbled endpapers. The binding is shelfworn, with top joint is starting and lower joint tender. The first issue is missing four text pages; otherwise, despite some misleading errors in pagination, all text is present. Most issues have a timbre royal mark (a French duty stamp) on one text page (but not on the plates). The plates are generally clean and fresh; however, there are a few exceptions: 1. - Both plates in Vol. VII, no. 1, have old paper repairs on the inner margin, and the top fore-corner of one has been clipped; 2. - The two plates in Vol. VII, no. 2, have been trimmed 1/4" shy of the fore-edge of the bookblock; 3. - One plate in Vol. IX, no. 15, which is the only horizontal image in the entire volume, has been trimmed to the top-edge of the image at the fore-edge.

LE PETIT MESSAGER DES MODES was a bi-weekly publication, appearing on the 1st and 16th of each month, comprised of eight pages of text, that was to include 22 engraved plates and 3 large patterns in each six-month period. This volume is bound without any of the large patterns and, instead, an additional plate has been inserted wherever a pattern is called for. These `extra' plates have been supplied from issues that are not included in this volume. Although most issues are complete with text and appropriate plates together, there are twelve instances in this volume, including the plates-for-patterns substitutions, of plates being misbound or of a plate from another issue replacing the expected plate. And so, while the plates are lovely and in very good condition, it is for these reasons that the volume is offered as is. $975.00

72577PHILLIPS, Watts. AN ACCOMMODATION BILL. Drawn by Watts Phillips, which he trusts will be accepted by the public. [London]: D. Bogue, [n.d., circa 1850].

Covers have a touch of rubbing and edgewear, and some general light soiling, else a fine and quite pleasing copy. Title information is taken from the illustrated cover. The story is a satire relating the trials of trying to recover a loan made to a friend; the back cover, showing a fly caught in a spider's web, provides a graphic summation of the tale. Watts Phillips (1825-1874) was the only pupil of George Cruikshank. He was an early contributor to Punch, and the founder of the short- lived periodical Journal for Laughter. He gradually abandoned caricature and illustration for success as a dramatist and, less successfully, as a novelist. (D.N.B.; Houfe, Dict. of Brit. Bk.

He then moves on to civil and military architecture, measuring and surveying. The mysterious Rangonius, who seems to have published nothing else, may be a member of the Rangoni family of Modena, descendents of Niccolo Macchiavelli. Not in the British Museum or Library of Congress. Only one copy is located by both the NUC and OCLC, at the University of Texas, and that copy is incomplete, probably lacking the section on construction and use of mathematical and surveying instruments. In original plain pale green wrappers, the front cover detached. Waterstained and foxed throughout. $975.00 #76880

Bianco went on to illustrated books written by others, including her mother, Margery Williams Bianco, as well as books that she wrote. (National Book League, Walter de la Mare: A Checklist, A36 mentions that there are at least five variants to this edition, due to binding errors, causing misplacement of poems and drawings; but it does not list them. In this copy, the last poem, "Sephina," finishes on p.43 with a small illustration at the bottom.) $750.00 #78786

Each reproduction is in the form of the original, be it sheet, broadside, in magazine or in songbook, and is printed on specially made rag paper, water-marked "Foster Hall Reproduction." Two hundred and one original songs and compositions are reproduced, to which are added guitar and other arrangements of Foster's work and his arrangements of the work of other composers, and one original first editon (My Story of Love. NY: Shapiro, Bernstein & Co., Inc., 1946) is laid-in, for a total of 229 pieces. The set is nearly complete, lacking only one piece.

The condition of most pieces is quite fine; but some of the more popular compositions, like Beautiful Dreamer, show moderate soil and wear.

MANN, Horace. LECTURES ON EDUCATION. Boston: Wm. B. Fowle and N. Capen, 1845. First edition.

Binding tight.

In 1837 Horace Mann accepted the position of First Secretary of the State Board of Education in Massachusetts. His humanitarian nature led him to abandon a highly promising career in politics in favor of education. He is known for his achievements in this field: establishment of the first Normal School for Teachers in Lexington in 1839; advocating for free libraries; doubling the wages of teachers and compensating school committees, building 50 new secondary schools, doubling the State aid for education, and imnproving textbooks and equipment; and his editorship of the "Common School Journal," for which he wrote twelve annual reports. For the latter part of his life, from 1853 until his death in 1859, he was President of Antioch College.

Mann's Lectures are elegantly written and illustrate his commitment to the establishment of free, public, non-sectarian education for every man and woman. $1,500.00 #84910
