Item Description: Apud Aldum, Venice, 1498. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good. EDITIO PRINCEPS. Folio. 346 unnumbered leaves, lacking two blanks. Text in Aldus’ large Greek type 146, 41 lines of scholia surrounding in smaller (type114), Aldus’ preface in Roman. Woodcut strap-work initials in two sizes and headpieces. Early Greek marginalia in brown ink mostly to first quarter of volume. Title page very slightly soiled and strengthened at gutter, two leaves slightly browned (probably damp at printing), couple of minor marginal tears, last leaf with small old marginal repairs, strengthened at gutter, slightly soiled on verso. A very good copy, crisp, clean and well margined in C17 vellum over boards C18 mottling, gilt red morocco labels and gilt thistle motif on spine, C19 ms. bibl. notes on front pastedown, Walter Hirst’s charming bookplate and Sir Thomas Philip’s pencilled shelf mark beneath, earlier ink lettering (press mark?) on rear pastedown, Quaritch pencil note beneath. A very handsome copy of the beautiful first printed edition of Aristophanes comprising the first nine plays (10 & 11 were not published till 1525) and one of the chef d’oeuvres of Aldus’ early Greek press. The editor was Marcus Musurus, the celebrated Greek humanist, who also contributed an excellent preface on the reasons for studying Greek and the stylistic beauty of Aristophanes. Aldus founded his career on the publication of Greek texts - the first printer to do so - with this type designed and cast on new principles which he perfected over a period of five years. To his scholarly care we owe more of the editiones principes of the major Greek classics than to any other printer and the Aristophanes, texturally and artistically, was one of his finest achievements. Aristophanes was the greatest of the Athenian comic dramatists and one of her greatest poets. For richness and fertility of imagination probably only Shakespeare is comparable and Aristophanes’ direct influence on English literature was considerable; the comedies of Jonson, Middleton and Fielding derive from him. Apart from constituting one of the surviving glories of hellenic culture Aristophanes’ comedies are an invaluable source for its social history. His surviving plays - out of a probable forty or fifty - provide us with an accurate if satirical commentary on the political, religious, sexual, economical and domestic life of Athens over a period of thirty six years. His changes in style and content match the concurrent constitutional and social changes in the State itself. The plays’ themes are invariably contemporary, a mocking mirror to the condition of the city. This edition has the benefit of the scholia of Thomas Magister, John Tzetzes and Demetrius Triclinus themselves incorporating much of the more ancient commentaries of Appolonius, Callimaches, Didymus and others, which were superseded in later editions by much newer but also much inferior work. "Première et belle édition . Les Scolies . sont dans cette importante et belle édition imprimées bien plus correctement que dans la reimpression faite à Florence 1525" Renouard, 16:3. "Premiere édition belle et rare" Brunet I 451. BMC V 559. GW, 2333. Goff, A-958. Sander I 580. Essling I 2,2 1163. Greek, Latin. Bookseller Inventory # L1201

Item Description: Limited Editions Club, New York, 1934. Picasso, Pablo (illustrator). Quarto. 117pp. One of 1,500 copies on French Rives and signed by Picasso. Illustrated with six original etchings in black, one of which is signed in the plate and dated in reverse, and thirty lithographs printed in sanguine after drawings. This is the only American publication with original Picasso etchings, which are "among his most important in the Classical style," according to The Artist and the Book. However experimental and avant-garde he may have been throughout his life, the Lysistrata marks a clear retrogression to the artist's earlier classicist mode, an appropriate follow-up to his acclaimed Les Métamorphoses and fitting for the classical nature of this book. The Limited Editions Club printed the volume at their own printing shop in Westport, Connecticut. The book was designed by the Club's publisher, George Macy, who had eagerly anticipated the book's production and praised Picasso's hand as "sure and confident," noting that the beauty of the etchings lay in their simplicity. A fine, bright copy in boards covered with patterned paper in three colors from drawings by Picasso. Wrapped in the original glassine, which is still crisp overall, save for slight edgewear. Housed in a chemise of blue boards and patterned paper, which is sunned to the spine, and the original slipcase, which shows some wear to the corners and has a slight split starting to one corner. (The Artist and The Book 226; Cramer 24; LEC 57). Bookseller Inventory # 25141

Item Description: Frankfurt am Main, Johannes Spies 1586. 8vo. 8 Bll.nnum., 368 Bll.num. Mit zwei Holzschnitt-Druckermarken und zahlreichen Initialen. Flexibler Pergamentband der Zeit mit Rückentitel. Erste Ausgabe der für die Aristophanes-Rezeption in Deutschland bedeutenden Übertragung Frischlins. "Frischlin kommt das Verdienst zu, in der - vergleichsweise späten - humanistischen Wiederentdeckung dieses Hauptvertreters der älteren attischen Komödie eine Pionierleistung vollbracht zu haben" (W. Barner. Pioniere, Schulen, Pluralismus: Studien zu Geschichte und Theorie der Literaturwissenschaft 1997). Enthalten sind in dieser griechisch-lateinischen Parallelausgabe die fünf Komödien Plutos, Ritter, Wolken, Frösche und Acharner, wobei Frischlin keine bloße Übersetzung, "sondern eine Umwandlung des griechischen Originals in eine adäquate lateinsiche Ausdrucksform" (Graecogermania) anstrebte. Er widmete die Ausgabe Kaiser Rudolf II. in einer mehrseitigen Widmungsvorrede, in der er auch die Übertragung der übrigen Komödien des Aristophanes ankündigt. - Besitzeintrag der Bibliothek Diepenbroick auf Blatt zwei, Titel etwas fleckig, das letzte Blatt im weissen Rand etwas ausgefranst, sonst gut erhalten. - VD 16, A-3269; Wilhelmi/Seck 82; Adams A-1718; Hoffmann I, 253 f.; Graecogermania, Griechischstudien deutscher Humanisten (Ausstellungskatalog 1989) Nr. 92.

Item Description: Librairie A. Blaizot, Paris, 1911. In-4, demi-maroquin rouge à coins, plats de papier marbré, dos à nerfs orné de jeux de filets dorés; doublures et gardes de papier peigne, tête dorée, non rogné, couverture imprimée (Pagnant).Très beau livre illustré par un peintre qui fut un précurseur de l'Art moderne: François Kupka, le premier pet-être, exprima le charme léger de la Lysistratè. Artiste aimant farouchement tout ce qui magnifie la vie, il prit, à imager ces pages aux saveurs voluptueuses, la même joie qu'il eut jadis à tracer sur son cuivre la sauvage horreur des crimes d'Oreste et les visages implacables des "Erinnyes" (Lucien Dhuys). L'illustration comprend 20 eaux-fortes originales en couleurs par François Kupka, dont un frontispice et 19 vignettes ainsi que 13 culs-de-lampe gravés sur bois, dont un répété sur la couverture. Ce livre a fait l'objet de deux tirages: l'un avec le texte traduit en français par Lucien Dhuys imprimé à 361 exemplaires, l'autre tiré à part à petit nombre avec le texte en grec et les mêmes gravures que dans l'édition française, sauf pour trois masques qui ont été remplacés par des sujets plus "rudes". Un des 250 exemplaires sur vélin d'Arches avec le texte en français. Bookseller Inventory # 38665

[. . .] The animadversions and commentaries of many learned men adorn this edition, . . . .' (p. 299-300). Dibdin also seems to be quite taken with the life and work of Kuster.

Item Description: S.l., Editions de l'Odéon, (1975). Un fort vol. au format (375 x 268 mm) de136 pp., en feuilles, sous couverture lithographiée à rabats rempliés et étui d'édition de pleine suédine havane, composition figurative dorée d'après Bonnefoit portée au premier plat, dos lisse, titre doré, doubles filets dorés et roulettes dorés en tête et queue du dos. Premier tirage des 20 superbes compositions polychromes d'Alain Bonnefoit, ajoutée à l'illustration lithographiée occupant le premier plat. Tirage unique à 230 exemplaires. Celui-ci, un des 125 exemplaires numérotés du tirage sur vélin pur-chiffon de Lana. Chacune des planches en couleurs est ici contre-signée par l'artiste à la mine de plomb. L'exemplaire recèle en outre un joli dessin original figurant un nu féminin à pleine-page de Bonnefoit, signé et agrémenté d'un envoi autographe : ''Pour Jean-Louy Hoffstetter, bien amicalement / [signature]''. "Peintre des Vénus" selon Hervé Bazin, Alain Bonnefoit est aujourd'hui, avec plus de 200 expositions personnelles à travers le monde, un des plus illustres représentants de l?École de Paris, un artiste aux talents multiples(dessinateur, peintre, graveur, lithographe, sculpteur) et de renommée mondiale pour la qualité et le raffinement de ses ?uvres sur son thème favori: le nu féminin. Il ne se lasse effet pas des courbes pleines et déliées que lui offre le corps fémininsans jamais dévoiler ses secrets et célèbre ainsi la Femme, le Nu, la Beauté et la Volupté avec un tel talent qu'il en est devenu la référence depuis quarante ans. Dans Lysistrata, Aristophane a imaginé pour les femmes un mot d?ordre efficace: «Pour arrêter la guerre, refusez-vous à vos maris». Alors qu?Athènes et Sparte sont en guerre, Lysistrata, belle Athénienne, aussi rusée qu'audacieuse, convainc les femmes d'Athènes - Calonice, Myrrhinè, Lampito - ainsi que celles de toutes les cités grecques de déclencher et de poursuivre une grève totale du sexe, jusqu'à ce que les hommes reviennent à la raison et cessent le combat. Aristophane se plaît ici à mêler les conflits de l?État aux détails les plus intimes de la vie quotidienne, résolvant une crise politique des plus graves par la comédie la plus licencieuse, et usant avec bonheur de tous les clichés de la guerre des sexes. Bénézit III, Dictionnaire des peintres, p. 524 - Osterwalder II, Dictionnaire des illustrateurs, p. 304 (citant la présente contribution de l'artiste). Coupes très légèrement élimées. Infimes rousseurs aux premier et dernier feuillets. Nonobstant, très belle condition. Bookseller Inventory # 13651
