Book Description: The Fine Art Society London, 1913. Folio (40.5 x 28 cm). Original signed watercolour mounted, frontispiece portrait of Bakst, title, [8], 51 pp. with woodcut headpieces by Bakst, 77 tipped-in color and monochrome plates from original drawings, white silk bookmark. Original full vellum, embossed with decoration in gilt to boards and spine, top edge gilt, others uncut. Kept in original slipcase. Exceptionally fine example of one of 80 deluxe copies, with an original costume design signed by Bakst and superbly bound. The original design present in this copy was likely drawn for a costume of the Georgian Prince from the ballet Thamar, a piece set in the castle of the Queen of Georgia, which premiered in Paris on May 20, 1912. Of "this Edition de Luxe, containing an Original Drawing in Water-colour by Monsieur Leon Bakst, 80 copies only have been printed for all countries", which apparently included 20 copies for France (catalogue Sotheby's 1968), making this copy one of 60 or less. Very rare, especially in such a fine condition. "Born in Russia in 1866, Léon Bakst (Lev Samoilovich Rosenberg) 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" (V&A). Bookseller Inventory # 90173

(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.

Half-title, printed title with justification verso, Cocteau's text and leaf with 'achevé d'imprimer' and 22 hors-texte plates after Cocteau, 11 with additional colouring, each with tissue guard-leaf with printed title in red.

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.

Book Description: Gallimard, 1937. Couverture rigide. - Gallimard, Paris _1937, 12x19cm, relié. - Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Reliure en demi maroquin noir, dos lisse, date en queue, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier souris, couvertures et dos conservés (quatre petites déchirures en tête et en pied du dos passé, deux petites taches en pied du deuxième plat, infimes piqûres sur le premier plat), tête dorée, élégante reliure signée de P. Goy. Envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à la pianiste Misia (Sert), enrichi d'un dessin de Jean Cocteau la représentant de profil. Figure emblématique de la Belle Époque, Misia eut une place primordiale dans la vie de Cocteau qui relate ainsi sa rencontre au Théâtre du Chatelet lors d'une représentation des Ballets russes : "Il est impossible d'imaginer [. .] l'univers ensoleillé de Renoir, de Bonnard, de Vuillard, de Debussy, de Ravel, Les projecteurs prophétiques de Lautrec, le prisme mallarméen [.] sans voir surgir la figure de jeune tigre enrubanné [.] que nous vîmes à Misia le soir où nous la connûmes sous l'aigrette de la Shéhérazade, trônant au centre de la loge royale du Ballet russe et peuplant de son fluide [.] des danses violentes, comme jadis, les jardins impressionnistes, pailletés de soleil." L'amitié passionnelle qu'entretint Cocteau avec Misia, égérie des artistes et écrivains de la Belle Époque, influença profondément le poète dont plusieurs œuvres relatent la vie tumultueuse : "Thomas l'Imposteur", "La voix humaine", "Les monstres sacrés" sont toutes inspirées de ce personnage hors du commun qui fut également une muse littéraire pour Proust, Radiguet, Gide, Morand, Mallarmé. et un modèle artistique pour Bonnard, Toulouse-Lautrec, Vallotton, Vuillard, Renoir. Ainsi le portrait que Cocteau croque sur la page de faux-tire fait-il écho à cette impressionnante galerie de peintures dont Misia fut la dédicataire et auxquelles le musée d'Orsay consacra en 2012 une grande exposition intitulée: « Misia, reine de Paris ». Agréable exemplaire parfaitement établi. Bookseller Inventory # 30371

Book Description: L'arbalète, 1958. couverture souple. - L'arbalète, Décines _1958, 14,5x19,5cm, broché. - Edition originale, un des 250 exemplaires hors commerce sur Lana. Envoi autographe signé de Jean Cocteau à Marc (Barbezat) : "Cette admirable clownerie" enrichi d'un beau dessin original, daté et signé, au stylo bille noir et rehaussé à l'encre de Chine représentant le visage d'un jeune homme de profil. Signature autographe de Jean Genet en bas de la justification du tirage. La relation entre Cocteau, Genet et Barbezat constitue une belle aventure humaine et éditoriale qui permit l'émergence d'un écrivain unique. D'abord édité clandestinement en pleine Occupation, Genet entre dans le monde de l'édition grâce à Cocteau qui se prend de passion pour le jeune voyou dès février 1943, à la lecture de ses poèmes : "protégés par l'érotisme impubliables, ne peuvent que se lire en cachette, que se glisser de la main à la main". À l'instigation du poète, Genet signe son premier contrat d'édition avec le jeune Paul Morihien qui publie avec Robert Denoël, "Notre Dame des fleurs", mais celui-ci refuse d'apposer le nom de Genet sur la couverture. Cocteau s'insurge contre Denoël, ce "vilain monsieur" et incite Genet à solliciter Marc Barbezat, directeur de la luxueuse revue lyonnaise: L'Arbalète qu'il imprime lui-même sur sa presse à bras. Genet lui écrit de la prison de la Santé en novembre 1943. A la demande de Cocteau, le jeune éditeur, par ailleurs riche pharmacien, se porte garant auprès du préfet de police et accepte de publier sans les censurer les œuvres du sulfureux romancier. Leur collaboration, fondée sur une relation de confiance mais une amitié orageuse, permit la publication de onze superbes éditions sous la houlette de son ami et mentor Jean Cocteau qui, en 1943, clamait déjà devant le tribunal correctionnel jugeant Genet pour le vol d'une édition précieuse de Verlaine : « Que vous dire de Jean Genet ? C'est le plus grand écrivain du siècle, et croyez moi, je m'y connais ! ». Bel exemplaire. Bookseller Inventory # 36344

Book 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).

Book Description: 1919. COCTEAU, Jean. L'Ode a Picasso. [66] pp. 8vo., bound in original wrappers, in a new cloth folding box. Paris: A La Belle Edition, 1919. First Edition of one of the first written tributes to the genius of Picasso. A unique copy, with an original drawing by Cocteau of a winged horseback rider, inscribed to Henri Bernard, on the half-title. Cocteau wrote the work in 1916 but was at first unable to find a publisher. The clever typographical layout resulted in the accusation from John Richardson that the book is a "slick pastiche of Mallarme," but he does go on to say that Cocteau was the only writer to have understood the significance of Picasso's Seated Man. One of an edition of 339 copies, this being one of the 300 on Verge d'Arches. A remarkably scarce book. Bookseller Inventory # 143463

Book 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.
