About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for PRINCESS BADOURA: A Tale from the Arabian Nights Retold by Laurence Housman.

Description:

First edition. With 10 fantastic tipped-in colour plates by Edmund Dulac, each with a captioned and decorated tissue guard, decorated titlepage and with Persian style border to each page of text. 4to, publisher's original white cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt and turquoise on the upper cover and spine, decorative "peacock" endpapers in turquoise. [iv], 113 pp. An unusually well preserved, lovely, bright copy of this elusive book. Some very minimal evidence of age, the plates all very fine, the text very clean. FIRST EDITION AND A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THIS WONDERFUL BOOK. Dulac's love of the oriental style is never more apparent than in these illustrations, perfectly suited to the story of a Princess of China and the Island Prince. His luxurious use of color and line carries his audience away into the exotic. The book is especially important in Dulacís oeuvre as it marked a change unprecedented for Dulac. "There was now no single position from which an observer could view the entire scene; he must move about within the picture in order to see everything. Dulac began simplifying the elements which make up a picture and turned them into stylized units,.all arranged so as to make up a composition which carried the eye round the painting. To give variety to these compositional units Dulac adopted the Persian emphasis on heavily patterned surfaces, as in an illustration where a robberís baggy trousers, with an elaborate motif, are used as a flat decorative unit that happens to be trouser shaped. The jeweled dots.are now used by Dulac to make deliberate patterns.". Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Hoddder and Stoughton, [London], 1913. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dulac, Edmund (illustrator). First Edition. First trade edition, quarto size, 119 pp., illustrated with ten colour plates. Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) was the only illustrator of his day on a par with Arthur Rackham and was known for his exquisite colors, oriental influence and the versatility of his artistic endeavors. We cannot describe this book better than Mr. Hughey: "The ten water colours in this book were exhibited at the Leicester Galleries from November 15th until Christmas 1913. Here he does not speak with the zest of the Arabian Nights, nor with the prettiness of the Sleeping Beauty scenes. The message is one of great serenity, of uncluttered order. For this book he has altered his style to follow that of Chinese painting. The result is a very new, but mature style, most subtle in both design and colours. None of his work before or after was quite like it."___DESCRIPTION: Original white cloth stamped in gilt and turquoise and with design from title-page embellished by two peacocks and extra rules, similarly decorated at backstrip with lettering, turquoise endpapers with peacock design in upper corners in darker ink, top-edge turquoise, printed in black and olive ink, ten tipped-in color plates on thick stock, original paper guards printed at the top with the design from the title-page and captions printed in olive; quarto size (10.25" by 7.75"), pagination: [i-vi] [1] 2-113 pp.___CONDITION: A near fine to fine copy, with clean boards whose turqoise and gilt remains bright, straight corners, a strong square text block with solid hinges, the only prior owner markings a vintage Christmas gift inscription and bookplate to the front pastedown; and a hint of rubbing to the bottom front corner and a trace of dustiness to the spine, a near fine copy, scarce in this condition.___CITATION: Hughey 31a, first trade edition.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. Seller Inventory # 15031101
