Book Description Societe des XXX, Lyon, 1931. Hardback. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st edn. ~Original full dark blue morocco, with boards, spine, and turn-ins decorated in gilt and blindstamped with stylised geometric ship's rigging design, after illustrated title page. Gilt title to spine. Tiny amount of rubbing to top of spine, covers otherwise bright and fresh. With original protective cover, which has matching blue morocco to spine and fore-edges, gold-flecked blue paper to side panels, gilt lettering and blindstamped wave design to spine. Deep royal blue suede to endpapers, lightly impressed with design from turn-ins. All edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges deckled. 4to (27 x 31.5cm). Tiny gilt signature stamped to turn-ins, acknowledging influence of title page design: 'G. Crette succ. de Marius Michel, apres F. L. Schmied'. Georges Crette (1893-1969) worked until 1925 as lead finisher for Henri Marius-Michel (1846-1925), widely considered the founder of modern French bookbinding: he continued to credit his mentor in his signature throughout his career. Very much concerned, like Marius-Michel, with integrating a book's binding with its content, Crette referred to the binder as the 'costumier' for a book: just as in theatre, he declared, the costume must be appropriate for the role in question. Known by the 1930s for his bold, precise Art Deco designs, one of the most recognisable elements of his style was his masterful use of gold fillets (as exemplified by the binding of this volume), which earned him the nickname 'maitre des filets'. Suede endpapers backed with two layers of laid paper, the outer layer of paper becoming detached from centres outwards, but still holding well. Foxing to front and rear endpages, most noticeably to first and final 2pp. Text proper is clean and fresh. Blindstamped title to front blank endpage. Half-title printed in red and black, with pencil dedicatory inscription addressed to Charles Dumond (or Dumont?) and signed by artist. Edition limited to 135 copies, of which this is no. 117 (designation signed in pencil by artist). Title page printed in red, grey, maroon and black, with rigging design as reworked by Crette on binding. Unpaginated. With two full-page plates of the ship Peau-Brune, both signed by Schmied, and c.100 beautiful in-text illustrations in vibrant colour, all the work of Schmied: the colophon identifies them as having been engraved and printed in his workshop and under his direction, with his son Theo Schmied serving as head of the workshop. Francois-Louis Schmied (1873 -1941) was an important Art Deco artist and book designer: born and trained in Switzerland, he moved to Paris in 1895 and became a leading light in French book wood-engraving, illustration, and typography. He made his name when he was commissioned to engrave and print Paul Jouve's illustrations for Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, and he went on to produce a succession of sophisticated and luxuriously appointed limited editions, usually in runs of no more than 100-200 copies, before his business folded with the onset of the Great Depression. This volume is an account of a voyage Schmied undertook with the lacquer artist Jean Dunand on the ninety-ton schooner Peau-Brune (complete with a ram's head lacquered by Dunand at the bow), sailing from St. Nazaire in Brittany to La Ciotat, east of Marseille. Intended as the first stage on a world tour, sponsored by a group of bibliophiles and chronicled by Schmied in the manner of the present volume (which, with its dated entries, imitates a ship's logbook), Schmied's grand scheme never came to pass. This volume, however, remains a tour de force of inter-war Art Deco book design, entirely the creation of Schmied and his frequent collaborator Crette. Size: (84)pp. Seller Inventory # MM3390
