[Print] Les Grandes Verites.  No. 19.
44 [Print] Les Grandes Verites. No. 19.
Paris Imp. Lith. Pinot & Sagaire. Edit a Epinal NA Very Good 
Rascist yet colorful image of barber lathering a black man, both in eighteenth century attire. N.d., circa 1860. 41 by 28 cm. The caption to the image is "A vouloir blanchir ce negre, Barbier tu perds ton savon." In English: "Wishing to whiten this black man, Barber you are losing your soap." Regardless of the content, the image does provide a good window into a barbershop of the era, which to us may look lovely but is without such conveniences as the barber chair, not yet invented, and with a kind of bowl and collar around the black man's neck to catch anything falling. To the side are 12 stanzas of everyday maxims turned into nonsense. Above and below are six vignettes that relate to the song. Light wear.

A Collection of Seven Drawings, Alken, Henry
49 Alken, Henry A Collection of Seven Drawings
London 1815-1830 Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. Fine 
A handsome modern binding of seven original Alken drawings. Elephantine oblong, 35 by 50 cm. The drawings themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 25 by 36 cm. The drawings themselves are laid on paper, and this paper is exposed, creating a margin all around, of not quite 2 cm. The drawings are titled: "Swell and the Surrey, No. 1", "Swell and the Surrey No. 2", "Drawing the Long Bow", "Drawing a Horse", "A Cabbage Leaf Galloper", "In Such a Scene as This", and "Rider Unshipped". Most relate to riding and equestrian sports, but "Drawing the Long Bow" depicts men drinking and playing cards. Generally the scenes have a touch of humor and levity, although one can not say they are all caricature or intended to be funny. While one can find some sketchiness here and there, overall the drawings come off as satisfying works that can stand on their own -- in other words, they are closer to being finished than tentative works in progress. Bringing coherence to the group is an esprit of quintessential Alken. The modern binding is handsome and worthy of the contents. Leather title label on front board.

A Set of Six Plates on Horse Riding, Alken, Henry
50 Alken, Henry A Set of Six Plates on Horse Riding
London Thomas McLean 1821 First Edition Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. Fine 
A handsome modern binding of six hand-colored plates which were issued separately, or as a folio, and not in book-form, in 1821. Elephantine oblong, 33 by 54 cm. The plates themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 24 by 30 cm, which exposes about 4 cm of margin all around the images. The plates are titled: "Delighted", "Dissatisfied", "Perfectly Satisfied", "Displeased", "Surprised" and "Terrified". They are humorous takes on two gentlemen riding, not necessarily foxhunting. The men are opposites in their riding style, both exemplifying ineptitude and inexperience, though. The suite is very much in the vein of Alken stylistically, and also in the vein of such print series issued in profusion at the time. Obviously, such series usually ended up decorating walls, and so it is quite unusual and nice to have the suite survive intact and to have it bound so handsomely. With also a title page. Leather title label on front board.

Six Drawings of Sporting Notions, Alken, Henry
51 Alken, Henry Six Drawings of Sporting Notions
London 1815-1830 Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. Fine 
A handsome modern binding of six original Alken drawings. Elephantine oblong, 35 by 50 cm. The drawings themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 19 by 26 cm. The drawings themselves are laid on paper, and this paper is exposed, creating a margin all around, of about 1 cm. The drawings are titled: "I have a notion that I am not quite up to this riding in Surry [sic]", "A gad I had no notion that picking up a fox was such sharp work", "I have a strong notion that this is a coal hole", "I have a very strong notion I should not like stag hunting", "I have a strong notion that this bit of timber will impede my progress excessively", and "I have a notion that this may be called riding to the hounds at a smashing pace". All the drawings relate to foxhunting and its perils and sources of anxiety. The drawings served as the basis for some of the plates in one of the rarest of Alken's color plate books, "Sporting Notions", which was published in 1833 (with plates watermarked 1831 to 1833). Humor, along with a touch of pathos, pervades the artwork. The modern binding is handsome and worthy of the contents. Leather title label on front board.

Moments of Fancy, Alken, Henry;  James Barenger.
56 Alken, Henry; James Barenger. Moments of Fancy
London Thomas McLean 1822 First Half Morocco. Marbled paper pasted onto boards. Very Good 
Oblong, 28 by 40.5 cm. 14 hand-colored aquatint plates after Alken and James Barenger, from two series of seven plates each. Each plate has one to six illustrations, with the multiple illustrations on a single plate sometimes set up almost like cartoon cells and yet also having something of a collage arrangement inasmuch as there isn't necessarily a clear demarcation between one image or the next. Regency humor, sometimes obscure in its brief captions, but the physicality and slapstick of the visual humor very accessible. Being Alken, there is a surfeit of equestrian humor -- clumsy or unskilled riding, misbehaving horses, etc. -- but there is plenty of other subject matter as well, with many scenes set in interiors, with domestic manners and pretensions, politicians, lawyers, gentlemen and ladies, the old, the infirm, etc. coming in for light ribbing. Brightly colored throughout. Condition: a few repaired closed tears, and some light scattered soiling. Generally clean and fresh. Modern half morocco, with leather title label on front board, and original such label pasted onto FEP.

A Survey, Beerbohm, Max
57 Beerbohm, Max A Survey
London William Heinemann 1921 First Edition Cloth Very Good 
4to. 26 by 19 cm. 52 plates of the famous and celebrated, many of whom were among the literati, with a few politicians thrown in, as well as a few with no known personage but satirizing some current in society. Thus found here are unforgettable send-ups of Lloyd George, Gordon Craig, Sidney Webb, Lord Balfour, Lytton Strachey, and many others. But also in this collection are caricatures cleverly treating more abstract subject matter, such as the future as beheld by the 18th century, the 19th century and the 20th century. In the first two of this triplex series Beerbohm is commenting on the lack of human imagination as to what the future may bring. All the drawings have the inimitable Beerbohm style that remains fresh and droll, even when one doesn't necessarily know the subject or fully know what exactly Beerbohm intended to skewer. Captions on tissue guards. Slight sunning of the spine. Pressure dings at spine extremities, with a small crinkle touching corner of front board. English Literature
