Item Description: Maurice de Brunoff, Paris, 1913. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Limited First edition. 1/20. Folio. [6], 49, [5]pp (text), 77 leaves (plates), [8]pp. Uncut. Original gilt-stamped full vellum, with gold lettering on spine. Top edge gilt. Book housed in its original green cloth clamshell box, with title laid on front panel. Laid in, an original pochoir-highlighted watercolor signed and dated in pencil by the artist at lower right margin. Mounted photogravure frontispiece portrait of Leon Bakst signed by himself at lower margin. Title page in red and black lettering. Decorative head- and tailpieces after Bakst. Lev Samoylovich Rosenberg (Bakst), painter and stage designer realized his greatest artistic success in the Alesandrinksy and Maryinsky theaters, and later from 1901 to 1921 with Diaghilev at the Ballet Russe where he designed more productions than any other artist. Theater and costume designs for more than ten ballet works appear in this splendid deluxe edition containing 77 tipped-in plates, all but one after Bakst, including 4 folding and 50 in full color, with pochoir highlights. The striking plates of Leon Bakst's stage sets and costumes for the Ballet Russe accompany synopses of the plays by Jean Cocteau for which they were designed. Bakst’s brilliant control of color, line and decoration give his stage pictures a visual rhythm. Color and chromatic combinations were used emotionally and sensuously. The splendid costumes are richly decorated with myriad motifs and decorative shapes. Descriptive letterpress of each plate is on the verso of the preceding plate. Our copy is No. 17 of 20 deluxe copies reserved for the Russian market, out of a total edition of 80 deluxe copies (Catalogue Sotheby's 1968). Clamshell box split in two. One side panel missing. Heavy rubbing on both front and back panels. Original watercolor loosed from its frame, but frame still present. Text in French. Box in overall poor to fair, binding and interior in very good condition. About the artist: Born in Russia in 1866, Léon Bakst belonged to that young generation of European artists who rebelled against 19th century stage realism, which had become pedantic and literal, without imagination or theatricality. There were no specialist trained theatre designers, so painters like Vuillard in France, Munch in Scandinavia and Léon Bakst and Alexandre Benois in Russia turned their painting skills to theatre design. Bakst’s fame lay in the ballets he designed for the Diaghilev Ballets Russes, and huge pageant spectaculars for dancer and patron, Ida Rubinstein. Bookseller Inventory # 38140

Item Description: Mercure de France, 1912. Couverture rigide. - Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 15x19cm, relié. - Edition originale, un des 7 exemplaires numérotés sur Hollande, seuls grands papiers, le nôtre portant le N°1 et spécialement imprimé pour la mère de Jean Cocteau. Reliure à la bradel en plein vélin, dos lisse, date dorée en queue, pièce de titre de chagrin brun, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés, tête rouge, reliure de l'époque signée de Dupré. Emouvant et exceptionnel envoi autographe daté et signé de l'auteur à sa mère, en latin, qui reprend l'un des vers des Bucoliques de Virgile : " Incipe, parve puer : cui non risere parentes, nec deus hunc mensa, dea nec dignita cubili est. / Virgile. / Jean" dont voici la traduction française : " Enfant, reconnais-la : le fils à qui ses parents n'ont point souri n'est digne ni d'approcher de la table d'un dieu, ni d'être admis au lit d'une déesse. " Légères piqûres affectant principalement les marges de certains feuillets. Exemplaire unique. Lorsqu'il publie ce troisième recueil de poésie, Cocteau, jeune prodige de 23 ans, est adulé par les cercles artistiques et littéraires. Intime de Proust, ami de Jacques-Emile Blanche, fidèle de Nijinsky et Diaghilev et disciple d'Anna de Noailles, son ambition est de réunir dans sa personne tous les talents qui l'entourent. La danse de Sophocle, référence à la danse que "le jeune et divin Sophocle" exécuta nu dans Athènes, après la victoire navale de Salamine, reflète l'ambition et l'exaltation du jeune Cocteau : Romancier, peintre, danseur, poète, il se sent véritablement " digne d'approcher la table [des] dieu[x] ". « A égalité avec les meilleurs artistes, il était un truchement entre Dieu et la Terre. » Dans sa biographie, Claude Arnaud consacre un chapitre (« Le dieu vivant ») à la psychologie du poète à cette époque : « Il était un fragment détaché du créateur. L'un des organes terrestres par lesquels cet Etre en évolution délibérait, et finalement tranchait, afin d'améliorer sa création. ». Ainsi, c'est un Cocteau affranchi de ses illustres modèles et assumant pleinement sa divinité artistique qui se dévoile dans ce recueil extatique à l'instar du poème éponyme : Grâce à vous, cher orgueil, je portais l'auréole Offerte par le Dieu charmant de la parole, [.] Grâce à vous, j'ai connu les frénétiques luttes Où la plume et la feuille et le morne encrier Sont les liens des vers que l'on voudrait crier, Que l'on voudrait hurler, chanter, soupirer, rire, [.] Et qu'il faut, lorsqu'ils sont en nous et qu'on le sent, Les laisser ruisseler comme un superbe sang. . La dédicace à sa mère, sur le premier exemplaire des 7 uniques grands papiers, témoigne du seul véritable ascendant de Cocteau : Eugénie Cocteau. Mère sacralisée par son fils, elle influa profondément sur la vie du poète comme sur son oeuvre, marquée par l'omniprésence de la figure oedipienne. Claude Arnaud décrit longuement cet « élan filial doublé d'une attention quasi amoureuse (.) : "il n'y a que mon amour pour toi qui m'accroche à quelque chose de vrai, le reste me semble un mauvais rêve." On ne peut d'ailleurs manquer de voir dans le choix de la citation de Virgile cette ambiguïté incestueuse qui lie Cocteau à sa mère. Une des provenances les plus désirables pour cet exemplaire de toute rareté. Bookseller Inventory # 45274

The total number of lithos in this book is 73, one of which is the signed litho; 59 of the 73 lithos are hors-texte (full page without text). Loose leaves, circa 15 x 11 in. (377 x 280 mm), housed in publisher's wrapper folder, front cover of which is an original lithograph with a cut-out profile revealing the title printed underneath; this folder and two folders with the suites are housed in a black morocco gilt clamshell box with crimson-red velvet lining (only the first 16 deluxe copies were issued with such box). There is the habitual slight rippling to edges of some leaves, as normal, overall an excellent copy. The difference in book number (III) and the litho number (15) is not a mismatch but normal; we have discussed this issue with Mr. Patrick Cramer, and there is no problem. "On the occasion of Picasso's 80th birthday, Pierre Bertrand, who was Cocteau's publisher, assembled eleven of the poet's texts which reflected his friendship with Picasso. The latter illustrated these texts with 24 lithographs, some of which are drawn in Cocteau-esque style " - Goeppert / Cramer 117. Also: Bloch 1037-1060; Monod 2926. Extremely rare, now possibly unique in the complete state like this copy. Bookseller Inventory # 9920

Item Description: Paris, Mai 1917. Folio. Original patterned dust-wrapper; original illustrated extra wrappers; original illustrated wrappers for "Théatre du Chatelet" (drawing by André Marty on front, and advertisements on back) in grey and red; original illustrated coloured wrappers for "Programme des Ballets Russes" (front wrapper illustrated by Picasso with the Chinaman-costume from "Parade"). Slight soiling to dust-wrappers, and corners a bit bent, and a bit of light brownspotting to the different wrappers. All in all a very nice and well-preserved copy. Apart from the described wrappers and extra-wrappers, there are, in all, 24 leaves with -mostly photographic- illustrations and 6 leaves of text. Scarce original printing of this seminal avantgarde-publication, the May 1917 "Théatre du Chatelet"- publication that presents Diaghilev's "Ballets Russes" in Paris - here containing the entire separate publication mainly devoted to Jean Cocteau's groundbreaking ballet "Parade" - being one of the most important publications in the history of modern art. It is here, in his presentation-article to "Parade" that Apollinaire coins the term "surrealism" and thus lays the foundation for the seminal cultural movement that Bréton came to lead. Furthermore, the ballet "Parade" represents a historical collaboration between several of the leading artistic minds of the early twentieth century: Erik Satie, Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Léonide Massine, and Serge Diaghilev, and is famous, not only for its contents and its music, but also for its magnificent costumes designed by Picasso, the drawings of which are presented in the present publication for the first time - most famously the front cover for the "Parade"-programme, which depicts the "Costume de Chinois du ballet "PARADE"/ Aquarelle de Picasso", an etching with original, stunning pochoir-colouring. It is the 1917 ballet "Parade" - the first of the modern ballets - originally presented for the first time in the present publication, that marks Picasso's entry into the public and bourgeois institutions of ballet and theatre and presents Cubism on the stage for the first time. The present publication constitutes an outright revolution in the history of art, theatre, and ballet.Several variants of this spectacular publication exist, but the one we have here is as original and complete as it comes, containing the entire contents of the different variants. We not only have the extremely scarce and fragile dust-wrapper and the equally scarce illustrated coloured double-wrappers (front: "Peinture de Picasso"; back: Décor de Larionow pour le ballet "BABA IAGA"), but also the entire 1917 "Théatre du Chatelet"-programme (in original illustrated wrappers) with the entire separate "parade"-issue -also entitled "Programme des Ballets Russes"- (also in original illustrated wrappers), with more than 20 leaves of photographic illustrations containing pictures of the actors and actresses, also in their spectacular avant-garde-costumes, Bakst's portrait of Leonide Massine, Picasso's portrait of Stavinski, Bakst's portrait of Picasso, Picasso and Massine in the ruins of Pompei, Picasso's drawings of a scene from "Parade" and of Massine, as well as several (mostly humorous) advertisements. But more importantly, we have, apart from the above-mentioned famous Chinaman by Picasso, in original pochoir-colouring, the other famous etching by Picasso "Costume d'acrobate du ballet "Parade"/ Aquarelle de Picasso", also in original pochoir-colouring (bright blue), the seminal presentation-article by Apollinaire, which coins the term "surrealism" (see bottom of description for full translation of this groundbreaking preface), the two "Les Femmes de Bonne Humeur"-figures by Bakst, Constanza and Battista, printed and heightened in gold (pochoir), the printed costume by Larionow, "Les contes russes", which is with original bright red and blue pochoir-colouring, and the "Le Mendiant"-costume by Bakst for "Parade", and, of course, the tex.

Cocteau's original drawings are on the half-title and initial blanks: The first drawing depicts a faun-like figure with stylised horns holding a fig-leaf in his mouth. The figure is depicted from behind, against a flat horizon with a sun in the top right corner. The second drawing, typical of Cocteau, is the profile of a man with stylised hair and is identified - the beginning of the word is formed from the downstroke denoting the shape of the ear - as 'Jean'. The double-page drawing on the half-title comprises the figure of an elegant woman with a cane (on the left-hand page), her head back, regarding the figure on the right-hand page, a young man, possibly a self-portrait of Cocteau himself; this second figure merges into Cocteau's signature on the presentation.

Item Description: 3 feuillets in-4 écrits au recto à la plume, montés sur onglets et reliés en une plaquette in-4, bradel demi-maroquin noir à bandes, plats de papier gris; doublures et gardes de papier gris.Très beau texte sur l'appétit du public pour les faits divers: L'autre jour le peintre Vlaminck déjeunait au petit "Restaurant de Rome", rue Houdon, lorsque la porte s'ouvrit et laissa entrer un vieillard pauvre. Il vendait des journaux. Vlaminck observa qu'il en vendait quatre pour un sou et que tout le monde achetait. Vlaminck suivit l'exemple et vit que ses journaux étaient de vieux journaux de 1915. Comme il en faisait la remarque, "oui" murmura le vieillard en clignant de l'oeil et en lui poussant le coude, "mais dans ces journaux, IL Y A ENCORE LA GUERRE". Cette histoire fait réfléchir. La masse aime le fait divers. La guerre était la reine des faits divers. Le fait divers monstre. Le fait divers type. La guerre finie, la masse réclame "cancans et faits divers". Or Landru inaugure le retour du fait divers civil. Avec lui le chien écrasé retrouve son droit. Le texte de ce manuscrit autographe très corrigé, présente de nombreuses et importantes variantes par rapport à celui qui a été publié dans l'édition originale de Carte blanche (Paris, Editions de la Sirène, 1920, pages 56 à 59).

Item Description: , 28 mars 1958, 1958. 4to. 2 pages sur deux feuillets séparés en-tête « Santo-Sospir, St Jean-Cap-Ferrat ». Avec enveloppe. Belle lettre de Cocteau sur son analyse du cinéma durant le tournage du film « Le Testament d’Orphée » : « C’est hélas la préparation d’un nouveau film qui m’empêche de me rendre auprès de vous. Puis-je vous prier de m’en plaindre et lire à public ces q.q lignes. Mon regret de n’être pas avec vous n’est pas une simple formule de politesse. Ce qui m’en empêche touche de près cette séance. En effet, j’ai décidé de revenir à l’écran mais d’une manière qui me soit propre et que votre spectacle souligne à merveille. Le film a toujours été pour moi un véhicule de cette poésie qui nous habite et cherche à prendre forme par n’importe quel moyen. Le film a ceci d’admirable qu’il rend possible l’impossible et, en le montant, lui donne droit de cité en ce monde. Si je dis : « Orphée pénètre dans le miroir » - on peut ne pas me croire. Si je le montre, j’imite l’absurdité magnifique des spectacles. On rêve et je fais partager mon rêve à tous. Beaucoup de mes camarades français ou étrangers savent à présent les moindres secrets qui permettent de tourner un film remarquable et, moi-même, j’ai perdu l’innocence d’une époque où ne sachant rien du cinématographe, il me fallait, avec le sang du Poète, inventer le cinématographe à mon usage. Mais sans doute retrouverai-je un domaine très peu lu ne suivant pas la route savante et en recommençant à suivre l’exemple que le sommeil nous donne lorsque le mécanisme génial du songe organise ses intrigues. C’est pourquoi je prépare le Testament d’Orphée. C’est pourquoi je m’efforce de vaincre les obstacles que la routine m’oppose et c’est pourquoi je ne peux être à la Sorbonne ce soir et je vous en exprime fraternellement mes regrets. »« Le Testament d’Orphée », film réalisé par Cocteau en 1959 et sorti en 1960 résume le testament du poète Cocteau.

Item Description: Wallace Berman / Stone Brothers Printing, Los Angeles [and Jackson Street, San Francisco], 1957. First Edition. Slim octavo; brown sheets, with variously-sized hand-printed papers tipped-in, saddle-stapled into cardboard covers with printed sheet applied to front wrapper; [28pp]; illus. Light wear along spine fold and extremities, faint stress creasing at right edge of rear wrapper, occasional light offsetting from applied papers onto each other, with author's statement lacking from rear panel, but supplied in facsimile (we have seen issues with and without, and with the statement hand-written); Very Good+. Second issue of Berman's proto-DIY magazine, edition unspecified, but likely produced in numbers between 150-200 copies. "Hand-printed on a table-top at his house, this free-form zine with it's loose-leaf poetry adn amazing collages, montages and photography is also most baffling in its vanguard status: no one had done anything like this before Berman, not even in the days of Dada." Any issues of Semina are genuinely scarce; outside of commerce, they were sent to Berman's friends, contributors, and people he admired. The present issue contains 'The Bead Game' by Hermann Hesse, 'Tomb of a Cursed Poet' by Baudelaire, 'Mine' by Charles Bukowski, and poems by Peder Carr, Paul Eluard, Jack Anderson, Michael McClure, Zack Walsh, Judson Crews, and Berman, et al. An important, early issue of this avant-garde publication. Kugelberg p.2, 8; Dorbin C20. Bookseller Inventory # 1648

La parution sous le manteau, en 1928, de ce texte avait fait un tel scandale que Cocteau ne figure ici que comme illustrateur. D'où le commentaire de Cocteau en fin de volume : "On a dit que le Livre Blanc était mon oeuvre. Mais quel que soit le bien que je pense de ce livre - serait-il de moi - je ne voudrais pas le signer parce qu'il prendrait forme d'autobiographie et que je me réserve d'écrire la mienne, beaucoup plus singulière encore". Un des 22 ex. H.C., marqués de a à v, celui-ci exemplaire e imprimé pour Monsieur B. Armington, l'artiste qui a mis en couleurs les dessins de Cocteau. Dessin original sur toute la page de faux-titre et superbe envoi autographe de Cocteau : "Mon cher Armington ce livre est beaucoup plus de vous que de moi. Il est injuste que je vous l'offre, même avec ma profonde reconnaissance. Jean". Quelques piqûres à la page de titre. Bookseller Inventory # 1340075
