Description:

First Trade EditionWith Twenty Color Plates by Detmold[DETMOLD, Edward J., illustrator]. MAETERLINCK, Maurice. Hours of Gladness. Translated by A. Teixeira De Mattos. Illustrated by E.J. Detmold. London: George Allen & Co.; New York: Dodd Mead & Company, 1912. First trade edition. Quarto (11 x 8 1/2 in; 278 x 217 mm). [2, blank], x, 181, [1, printer's slug], [1, publisher's vignette], [1, blank] pp. Twenty mounted color plates with captions to opposite leaf. Title page illustrated in black and white. Publisher's white cloth illustrated in color. A bit of soiling to boards and toning to spine. Otherwise an internally fresh and clean, very good copy.Belgian poetic dramatist and essayist Maurice Maeterlinck (1862-1949) "wrote in French, establishing himself as one of the leading figures in the symbolist movement with his play La Princesse Maleine (1889; English trans. 1892). In 1892 Pelléas et Mélisande appeared (trans. 1894), the work for which he is now chiefly remembered and the source of Debussy's opera of the same name (1902). He also achieved great contemporary popularity with L'Oiseau bleu (1908; The Blue Bird, 1909) and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1911. He drew heavily on traditions of romance and fairy tale, and the characteristic tone of much of his drama is one of doom-laden mystery and timeless melancholy. He also produced a number of essays of a philosophical nature, including La Vie des abeilles (1901; The Life of the Bee, 1901) and L'Intelligence des fleurs (1907; The Intelligence of Flowers, 1907)" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature).After the tragic death of his twin brother and collaborator, Edward Detmold concentrated his talents on books, primarily of flowers and animals: "Detmold's finest plates are those produced for The Fables of Aesop (1909), The Life of the Bee (1911), and Hours of Gladness (1912), the latter with texts after Maurice Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet, naturalist, and mystic?A painting of chrysanthemums, contained in Hours of Gladness, is a glorious acknowledgement of the artist's debt to William Morris and Burne-Jones" (David Larkin, The Fantastic Creatures of Edward Julius Detmold).Houfe, p. 283.
