Description:

(9 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches). Half-title, title and limitation notice printed in brown and black within hand-applied borders, the title with a vignette illustration coloured by hand using the pochoir process. 22 half-page illustrations, 19 decorated initials, numerous head- and tail-pieces and occasional decorations, all after Gagnon, all hand coloured using the pochoir process. Original publisher's colour wrappers bound in. Contemporary three quarters olive green morocco over paper covered boards, bound by Canape et Corriez, spine with raised bands in five compartments, lettered in the second and fourth, the others panelled in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt Limited edition of 725 copies, this number 308 of 650 copies on Rives paper: a finely bound copy of this important work of Canadian Modern Art. A very fine copy of this beautifully-bound work with evocative illustrations from the important Canadian artist Clarence Gagnon. 'Le Grand Silence Blanc' is Rouquette's best-known and most popular novel: first published in 1921, its success ensured that it was much reprinted in both France and Canada and that an English translation was also produced. Of all the published editions, the present limited edition illustrated by Gagnon is the most sought after. The novel takes the form of a series of episodic chapters, each describing events and people encountered by the author on his journey through the Klondike and Alaska during the Gold Rush. The work estabishes a strong sense of time and place, and is rich in memorable characters: the wife of the Mountie; a Chinese trader, an Inuit, an Italian pianist, and adventurer and most importantly Tempest, the husky dog to whom the work is dedicated. The illustrations and decorations form a harmonious whole with the text and include some of Gagnon's best illustrative work. Clarence Gagnon was a painter, illustrator and etcher and is now recognised as one of the major figures in the development of Canadian modern art. The strong colours found in his later large scale original works are echoed in the jewel-like miniature images in the present work: his palette is able to make the best possible use of the vibrant colours achieveable using the pochoir process. Born in Montreal in 1881, Gagnon first studied art at the Art Association of Montreal, starting at the age of 16. By 1904, he was in Paris where he lived and worked, studying briefly at the Academie Julian under Jean-Paul Laurens, and absorbing the French Impressionists love of pure colours. "Back in Canada in 1909, he lived near Montreal in Baie-Saint-Paul, which, in the Charlevois region, became one of his favorite painting locations . He became an associate of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1910 and a full member in 1922. From 1911 to 1914 he was variously in Canada, France and Norway, working from sketches begun in Quebec. His subjects included French-Canadian life and anecdotal scenes . He abandoned etching for landscape painting, and in addition to scenes of Quebec did village scenes and landscapes in France. In 1913, he exhibited scenes of Canada at the Galerie Reitlinger in Paris. Gagnon lived in Paris from 1924 to 1936, where he illustrated Louis Hemon's story of Canadian frontier life, Marie Chapdelaine , and L. F. Rouquette's Le Grand Silence Blanc. . In 1936, Clarence Gagnon stopped painting, and then devoted himself to the establishment of Ile d'Orléans, a national historical park inspired by ones he had seen in Scandinavia." (Clarence Gagnon, 1881-1942, in American Art Review , December 2006, p. 134-137). Cf. J. Russell Harper Painting In Canada [1966] p.463. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Hachette, Paris, 1962. Couverture rigide. Condition: Très bon. CONJAT, Robert (illustrator). 190 pages, dans la collection "Bibliothèque verte", illustrations en noir et blanc dans le texte par Robert Conjat. Quatrième de couverture : "Faire partager au lecteur sa fascination pour une terre aussi inhospitalière et aussi exigeante qu'est celle d'Alaska, voilà une réussite remarquable due au vigoureux talent de Louis-Frédéric Rouquette. Oui, exigeante, cette contrée l'est du fait même de son inertie qui requiert de l'homme qui s'y voue l'apport de dons exceptionnels de volonté, d'endurance et d'amour. Freddy et son chien Tempest, qu'une profonde amitié unit pour le meilleur et pour le pire, sont les héros d'aventures multiples où le dévouement de Tempest pour son maître donnerait à penser que l'intelligence n'est pas seulement l'apanage des humains. Louis-Frédéric Rouquette s'égale ici - et ce n'est pas peu dire - aux grands maîtres du genre, J.O. Curwood et Jack London." 190 p. Livre. Seller Inventory # 004477
