1 Aubrun, Rene-Georges Peladan
Paris E. Sansot et Cie. 1904 Fabric pasted onto boards Good 
With bookplate, "Ex Libris Carl Van Vechten". Fabric binding with primitive floral, butterfly and bird pattern that is quite striking and unusual. The book itself is 8vo, 50 pp. with biography, caricatures, bibliography of noted French author. Contributors include Anatole France, Maurice Barres, Paul Verlaine (as an illustrator), Caran D'Ache. Some fabric loss on upper spine. Considerable soiling or darkening of fabric around edges. Title page heavily toned, and because paper was brittle, causing chipping around periphery, it is now laid on card paper which was tipped into book, and thus stabilized. Pages cut unevenly and where pages jut farther out, they tend to have toning.

2 Braungart, Richard Das Ex Libris der Dame
Munchen Franz Hanfstaengl 1923 First Limited Edition Half Vellum, Decorative Paper pasted onto boards Very Good 
No. 116 of 1,000 limitation. 4to. 40 pp. Followed by 96 plates, each with a numbered and name captioned tissue guard, and three page index plus limitation page. The plates depict a wide variety of bookplates, a few in color or tinted, almost all depicting women, often in glorified or highly stylized form, or bookplates of or designed by women, as consistent with the theme implied by the title. Text in German, but the main part of the book is accessible to any collector or lover of bookplates as well as those interested in artistic representations of the female form. Tissue guards are age toned. Minor wear to boards. Overall a handsome copy.
