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. - Édition 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. Légères piqûres affectant principalement les marges de certains feuillets. Émouvant 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. » 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 Nijinski 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] ». « à 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 Être 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 sept rares 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. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First edition, one of seven numbered copies on Holland paper, the only leading copies, ours with the No. 1 and specially printed for the mother of Jean Cocteau. Binding to bradel in full vellum, smooth back, when golden tail, part of title brown shagreen guards and contreplats of handmade paper, covers and spine preserved, red head, contemporary binding signed by Dupré. Touching and exceptional autograph dedication signed and dated by the author to his mother, in Latin, who gets a verse of Virgil's Eclogues: "INCIPE, parve puer: cui non Risere relatives, nec deus hunc mensa, dea ultimate dignity cubili is / Virgil / Jean. "which this is the French translation:" Chi. 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. 0.0. Signed by Author(s). Book. Bookseller Inventory # 9920

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.

Photographic portrait frontispiece, title, [4] ll., 51 pp. and [12] ll., [1] l., 77 tipped-in plates including 50 in colour. Original publisher's half vellum over marbled boards; rebacked preserving original spine, slightly spotted and rubbed. Very good example, very fresh internally, of this major luxury work on Bakst's art. "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 Léon Bakst 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. He died in 1924 but after nearly 100 years his magic is as potent as ever, rediscovered by every generation. His influence was such that people who have never heard his name now see the world in a different way" (Victoria & Albert Museum). Bookseller Inventory # 90423

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: [Paris: Edouard Champion (1925)]. 4to, 1925. Soft cover. 1st Edition. [Paris: Edouard Champion (1925)]. 4to. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Perhaps Cocteau's greatest illustrated book, consisting of thirty-one self-portraits, created while he was undergoing a disintoxication program for his addiction to opium. The drawings were produced as he stared relentlessly into a mirror for hours on end, attempting to come to terms with his chronic addiction and still mourning the loss of his beloved Raymond Radiguet. Many of the images also include text, some of it written backwards, creating a surrealistic effect. A beautiful copy of a superlative work of personal insight, created during the most creative period of Cocteau's life. Limited to 130 copies (and 10 on Japon), the sheets are laid into illustrated wrappers, with a decorative cardboard loose cover, as issued. Light wear to wrappers, small tear at foredge, internally very good. This copy (#102) is initialed by Cocteau on the colophon page. Housed in a fine decorative paper slipcase and chemise. Uncommon.
