Et comme je crois que chacun de nous a charge des âmes qu'il aime particulièrement, charge de les faire connaître et aimer, de leur éviter le froissement des malentendus et la nuit, l'obscurité comme on dit, de l'oubli, vous savez de quelles mains - scrupuleuses - mais pieuses et aussi douces que j'ai pu - j'ai touché à celle-là. » Précieux exemplaire comportant un affectueux envoi autographe de Marcel Proust sur sa première traduction de Ruskin.

Item Description: Mercure de France, 1904. couverture souple. - Mercure de France, Paris 1904, 12x19cm, broché. - Edition originale de la traduction, des notes et de la préface établies par Marcel Proust, un des exemplaires de première émission numérotés à la presse. Précieux envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à la baronne de Pierrebourg : ". hommage de respectueuse reconnaissance." Restaurations et manque comblés aux premiers feuillets, agréable exemplaire au papier fragile. La baronne Marguerite Aimery Harty de Pierrebourg, femme de lettres et maîtresse de Paul Hervieu, tenait un Salon littéraire brillant où se sont croisés notamment Raymond Poincaré, Henri de Régnier, Paul Valéry, Alfred Capus, Abel Hermant, René Boylesve, Edmond Jaloux, Gérard d'Houville, Edouard Estaunié, André Gide, Gabriele d'Annunzio et Robert de Flers. Régulièrement fréquenté par Proust, le « Salon de l'avenue du bois » de Madame de Pierrebourg fut avec celui de sa rivale Madeleine Lemaire, et ceux de Madame Strauss et de Madame Aubernon, le creuset des nombreux portraits psychologiques de la Recherche. Mais Marguerite de Pierrebourg, Claude Ferval de son nom de plume, était surtout une romancière admirée de Proust à laquelle il confiait, à chaque nouveau roman qu'elle publiait, son admiration et son propre désir d'écriture. Ainsi dans une lettre de 1903, l'émouvant commentaire d'un passage de Plus fort semble-t-il annoncer, dix ans avant la Recherche, le futur sacrifice de Proust à l'écriture et, dans le roman, l'échec de Swann à atteindre cette grâce : « Dans tout cela une philosophie sur laquelle on voudrait revenir et vous demander par exemple si c'est bien vrai que la vie nous accorde la grâce que nous désirons à condition que nous lui sacrifions le reste. Si on pensait que cela peut servir à quelque chose de sacrifier le reste, ce serait bien vite fait. Mais le reste abêtit, empêche de voir en face sa douleur. Enfin c'est difficile à dire. Mais vous avez raison. » Ce sentiment qui lui est encore si « difficile à dire », c'est précisément le sujet même de la Recherche. Et son aboutissement, la reconquête de cette vie par l'œuvre romanesque, il en formulera plus aisément l'impérieuse nécessité dans une lettre à Pierrebourg de 1908 : « vous êtes romancier, vous ! Si je pouvais créer comme vous des êtres et des situations, que je serais heureux ! » Assertion à laquelle fait écho l'interrogation de Proust : « Suis-je romancier ? » au début de son premier carnet. Car cette année est aussi celle du début de l'écriture de la Recherche dont on trouve la genèse dans ce fameux « carnet de 1908 ». Plus qu'une conseillère bienveillante Mme de Pierrebourg inspirera le personnage d'Odette (jusqu'au prénom d'Odette, emprunté à un roman autobiographique de Ferval) et sera l'un des plus fervents soutiens de Du Côté de chez Swann. Précieuse dédicace qui fait écho à celle que Proust lui adressera dix ans plus tard sur le premier volume de La Recherche. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition of the translation, notes and the preface prepared by Marcel Proust, one of the first issue numbered copies to the press. Precious autograph signed by the author Baroness Pierrebourg ". tribute of respectful gratitude ." Restorations and lack met the first sheets, nice copy the fragile paper. Baroness Margaret Aimery Harty Pierrebourg, woman of letters and mistress of Paul Hervieu, took a brilliant literary Salon where particularly have crossed Raymond Poincaré, Henri de Regnier, Paul Valery, Alfred Capus, Abel Hermant, René Boylesve, Jaloux, Gerard Houville of Edward Estaunié, André Gide, Gabriele d'Annunzio and Robert de Flers. Regularly frequented by Proust, the "Avenue of the timber Salon" of Madame de Pierrebourg was with that of its rival Madeleine Lemaire, and those of Mrs. and Mrs. Strauss Aubernon, the crucible of the many psychological portraits of Research. But Margaret of Pierrebourg Claude Ferval his pen name, was primarily a novelist admired Proust when he confided to each new novel she published, his admiratio. Bookseller Inventory # 48167

Edition originale française, traduction, notes et longue préface (de plus de cent pages) de Marcel Proust Un des exemplaires du tirage courant numérotés, n° 903 (après 7 ex. sur Hollande). Envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust à Édouard Rod, écrivain et journaliste suisse (1857-1910) : " A Monsieur Edouard Rod. Hommage de respectueuse et profonde admiration. Marcel Proust ". Comme, en 1896, Edouard Rod avait publié une bonne critique des Plaisirs et les Jours dans Le Gaulois (cf. Correspondance, II, n° 36), Proust espéra une critique de sa traduction de La Bible d’Amiens. Le critique dut dire à Proust tout le bien qu’il en pensait, puisque, dans une lettre datée de mai 1904, Proust lui répond : «Si je n’étais dans un état de santé chaque jour empiré j’aurais été (.) vous remercier aussi d’avoir pris la peine de m’écrire à propos de mon étude sur Ruskin et de ma traduction de La Bible d’Amiens. Si jamais au cours d’un article vous aviez l’occasion de le signaler j’en serai très fier et très heureux.» Malgré cette supplique, il semble que Rod n’ait pas consacré de chronique dans le Figaro à la traduction de Proust. Très bel exemplaire. Deux petites éraflures sur le premier plat. Signé par l'auteur. Livre d'occasion. Bookseller Inventory # 3221

Item Description: Smith, Elder, 1857. 8vo., First Edition, with 48 illustrations (3 full-page) in the text; original decorative cloth, elaborately blocked in blind, gilt back, uncut, covers mildly age-soiled, back a little faded (but all gilt entirely legible), backstrip lightly frayed at head and tail, else a very good, clean, tight copy now housed in a very handsome custom-made green full Chieftan morocco solander case with gilt back and marbled boards. RUSKIN'S OWN COPY WITH HIS BRANTWOOD BOOKPLATE ON FRONT PASTE-DOWN.Complete with 16pp publisher's catalogue (dated June 1857) bound in at end and the nineteenth century binder's ticket of Westley of London on rear paste-down.First edition of Ruskin's drawing lessons for children. Intended for those without recourse to a drawing-master, it provides a series of eminently practical exercises supported by illustrations.Ruskin was always greatly interested in the teaching of art. Perhaps his most famous pupil was Alice Liddell (Carroll's 'Alice') to whom he taught drawing and painting, as a result of which he appears in 'Alice in Wonderland' as the 'Drawing Master', an 'old Conger Eel' who attended 'once a week' and 'taught us Drawling, Stretching and Fainting in Coils'.Ruskin's lifelong love of the English Lakes began when he sat by Coniston at the age of eighteen, but it was not until his early fifties that he finally purchased Brantwood, one of the most splendid houses in the Lake District. Although he had not seen the interior he reasoned that any house opposite Coniston 'must be beautiful' and in 1871 secured the freehold from William Linton for the sum of £1,500. He moved in a year later, and the house became not merely a blissfully happy home but a renowned centre of artistic and literary endeavour for Ruskin and his circle. Brantwood remains today a place of pilgrimage for admirers and scholars of one of the greatest Victorian polymaths. Bookseller Inventory # 7511

Item Description: J. Vincent, Oxford, 1839. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Handled by Blackwell in Oxford with its small sticker on one of the front free endpapers. Pencilled on the second free endpaper is the following statement: "This copy was bound & presented by J. Ruskin to the lady afterwards the first Mrs. P." The reference is to Emily Andrews, daughter of Ruskin's boyhood tutor in Greek (Edward Andrews) and a playmate of Ruskin's. She later became the first wife of another Ruskin family friend, Coventry Patmore, who had two wives after her death. If the penciled reference is accurate, this is one of the most desirable copies of Ruskin's rare first book. In ink on the same endpaper is the following: "Charles J Billson from FWP September 5th 1894." The initials are not exactly clear; they may be FMP. We have not been able to identify the person. Charles Billson's bookplate is inside the front cover dated 1894. In that year he was President of the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society. The book is elegantly bound in crimson leather. On the front and back covers are highly ornate gilt frames. Within the frame on the front is the information on the title page up to the arms of Oxford. The spine is divided into compartments by small raised bands. Within each compartment is the same ornate gilt decoration. All edges gilt. The leather on the covers has very slight wear at the corners and a small scuff on the lower right hand corner of the front cover. There is a small area of adhesion inside the front cover where a second bookplate is missing. Truly a Very Good Copy. 19 pp. The colored paper wrappers have not been bound in.

Item Description: George Allen, London, 1871. First. Full calf leather with 6 raised bands and dark leather labels with author, title and date applied. Marbled endpapers. All bound similar and signed Ramage. 9 volumes, 6 with small "Byrdcliffe" bookplate inside front cover. Flors Clavigera described as follows: 8 bound volumes with NO Index volume. The books were printed between 1871 and 1884. Ariadne Florentina described as follows: Published in 1876. Numerous plates within. Lecture I: The Art of Engraving; II The Relation of Engraving to Other Arts in Florence; III The Technics of Wood and Engraving; IV The Technics of Metal Engraving; V Design in the German Schools of Engraving (Holbein and Durer); VI Design in the Florentine Schools of Engraving (Sandro Botticell). As lovelly as this set of books is, it is further enhanced with the bookplate of Byrdcliffe being present in 6 of the 9 volumes. Byrdcliffe was the Utopian Arts and Crafts Community in Woodstock, NY founded by Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead at the turn of the 20th Century. This set was in the comunity reference library there, and represents an incredible link between Ruskin, Whitehead and the American Arts and Crafts Movement. The Binder, John Ramage, was born in London in 1836. When Ramage came out of his apprenticeship in 1856, he took the unusual step for an English binder of going to Paris and working under Lortic, one of the leading French binders of the day. In 1860 Ramage returned to Britain and purchased the Edinburgh business of Alexander Banks Jnr, stating in the 1861 census returns that he employed 8 men, 3 boys, 6 women and 1 girl. Three years later he moved his business to London, where there was more work. He moved to larger premises in Warwick Lane in 1870, and from there he went to Warwick Square and in 1891 to Creed Lane. He died in 1911. VG, binding quite nice, Scattered light foxing in spots, but not prevalent. A very appealing set with Byrdcliffe bookplates. Bookseller Inventory # 149592

Item Description: Smith, Elder, and Co., London, 1849. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. John Ruskin (illustrator). 1st Edition. This unique edition with all the plates etched by Ruskin (Two bitten in Dijon during his honeymoon) is an extraordinary work of art. Ruskin says he will have all future authorized editions engraved by R.B. Cuff, but this edition with its mezzotint effects is special. (For the authorized Cuff edition, see item ID 98: Seven Lamps., New Edition. 1880.) This 1849 Ruskin work has had its spine rebound in leather; the embossed boards and edges are, apart from a little scuffing and some small spots, in good condition. There are two previous owner's names. Though there is slight browning on the edges of some of the pages, they do not affect the plates which are in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 000097
