Description:

Paris, Les presses de l'Hôtel de Sagonne, Société des Bibliophiles Les Plaquettes, 1939. 280 x 250 mm, non paginé, non coupé. EDITION ORIGINALE RARE sur Vergé de Montval imprimée entièrement sous souscription. EXEMPLAIRE de l'écrivain André Haguenauer paraphé par l'éditeur, conservé dans son papier craft d'origine au nom et adresse du souscripteur. La Société des Bibliophiles Les Plaquettes fut fondée par Gaston-Louis Vuitton en 1929 qui, sans qu'aucun ouvrage n'est été publié, comptait 57 membres en 1932. Cette première publication particulièrement luxueuse et dont la couver- ture est extrêmement graphique commence ainsi : "Explication aux Amis de la première heure, qui depuis neuf ans, attendent. Encore une Société de Bibliophiles !Pourquoi pas ? Et la conversation continuant à bâtons rompus, naquirent Les Plaquettes. Son programme : Faire des essais, rien que des essais, toujours des essais ; nous tromper souvent - mais, peut-être aussi, réussir". Il n'y eut malheureusement que deux essais puisque "Le Cantique du soleil de Saint Francis" publié en 1943, en plein conflit mondial, fut le second et dernier ouvrage de cette société éphémère de bibliophilies.

Book Description Les presses de l'Hôtel de Sagonne / Société des Bibliophiles Les Plaquettes, Paris, 1939. First and only edition. THE EXTRAORDINARILY RARE FIRST PUBLICATION (of a grand total of two) OF THE SOCIETE DE BIBLIOPHILES "LES PLAQUETTES", AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF FRENCH PRE-WAR FINE AVANT-GARDE TYPOGRAPHIC PRINTING. 2 blank leaves; 27 pp. This bibliophile society was conceived by Gaston-Louis Vuitton in 1929, and by 1932 it had 57 members but hadn't yet published anything. In that year it lost all of its funds when its bank went belly up. The Society got rolling again in 1938, and finally printed this gorgeous book in 1939. The text, of course, is about booklets, and their history in France and in the world. Shortly after this book was printed World War II and the German Occupation put a final end to this Bibliophile Society: its only other publication was an equally rare edition of St Francis' "Cantique du soleil", printed in 1943. (Fleuret died in 1945.) Notable avant-garde typographical design on cover. Edition limited to 111 numbered copies (but much rarer, as few if any copies were ever actually distributed to the members of the Société) beautifully printed with huge margins on fine Montval laid paper. Folio. Publisher's wraps. UNCUT AND UNOPENED, FINE AND BRIGHT, LIKE NEW WITH NO DEFECTS. An incredible survival, even more so in such pristine condition. The only copy in WorldCat is the one in the Bibliothèque Nationale. Bookseller Inventory # 38110

Book Description Les presses de l'Hôtel de Sagonne / Société des Bibliophiles Les Plaquettes 1939-1943, Paris, 1939. First and only editions. PRISTINE COPIES OF THE ONLY TWO BOOKS, BOTH EXTREMELY RARE, PRODUCED BY THE SOCIETE DE BIBLIOPHILES "LES PLAQUETTES". BOTH ARE OUTSTANDING EXAMPLES OF FINE FRENCH AVANT-GARDE TYPOGRAPHIC PRINTING. 2 blank leaves; 27 pp.; 36 pp. This bibliophile society was conceived by Gaston-Louis Vuitton in 1929, and by 1932 it had 57 members but hadn't yet published anything. In that year it lost all of its funds when its bank went belly up. The Society got rolling again in 1938, and finally printed Eloge de la plaquette in 1939. The text, of course, is about booklets, and their history in France and in the world. Shortly after this book was printed World War II and the German Occupation began, and the Society printed its second (and last) book, St Francis' "Cantique du soleil" (in Old Italian and Modern French), in 1943. (Fleuret died in 1945.) Both books feature notable avant-garde typography, the "Cantique du soleil" in two colors (and attractively decorated with ornaments). Editions limited to 111 numbered copies (but much rarer, as few if any copies were ever actually distributed to the members of the Société) beautifully printed with huge margins. "Eloge" printed on fine Montval laid paper; "Cantique" printed on rough unbleached paper. "Cantique" initialed by Fleuret in ink. Folio (Eloge) and 8vo (Cantique). Publisher's wraps. UNCUT AND UNOPENED, FINE AND BRIGHT, LIKE NEW WITH NO DEFECTS. Incredible survivals, even more so in such pristine condition. The only copy of "Eloge de la plaquette" in WorldCat is that in the Bibliothèque Nationale. There is not a single copy of "Cantique" in WorldCat. Bookseller Inventory # 38148
