About this Item: Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1909. Leather. Condition: Near Fine. Edward J. Detmold (illustrator). Limited Edition. Aesop's Fables. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1909. Limited to 750 copies signed by Edward J. Detmold, of which this is #532. Twenty-five full page color tipped-in plates by Detmold with lettered tissue guards. A masterpiece of illustration, and widely regarded as Detmold's finest work. 10 inches by 12 inches. Bound in vibrant red morocco by Bayntun/Riviere with Detmold's hare vividly inlaid on the front cover, and multiple gilt borders to front and back covers. Gilt-tooled turn-ins and marbled endpapers. Housed in somewhat worn buckram slipcase. Spine darkened and some light spots of rubbing. Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with his name have descended to modern times through a number of sources and continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic media. The fables originally belonged to the oral tradition and were not collected for some three centuries after Aesop's death. By that time a variety of other stories, jokes and proverbs were being ascribed to him, although some of that material was from sources earlier than him or came from beyond the Greek cultural sphere. The process of inclusion has continued until the present, with some of the fables unrecorded before the later Middle Ages and others arriving from outside Europe. The process is continuous and new stories are still being added to the Aesop corpus, even when they are demonstrably more recent work and sometimes from known authors. Manuscripts in Latin and Greek were important avenues of transmission, although poetical treatments in European vernaculars eventually formed another. On the arrival of printing, collections of Aesop's fables were among the earliest books in a variety of languages. Through the means of later collections, and translations or adaptations of them, Aesop's reputation as a fabulist was transmitted throughout the world. Edward Julius Detmold and his twin brother Charles Maurice Detmold were prolific Victorian book illustrators. Edward Detmold became one of the most talented of illustrators, depicting animals and plants with an extraordinary understanding, and making use of fantasy settings of architecture and landscape. In the 1920s, he retired to Montgomeryshire with his widowed sister as companion, initially living the life of an artist but finally retiring completely from public life. He suffered a period of depression, brought on by failing eyesight, that resulted in his committing suicide, aged 73, by his shooting himself in the chest in July 1957. Signed by Illustrator(s).

(Publishers' note).After the tragic death of his twin brother and collaborator, Edward Detmold concentrated his talents on books, primarily of flowers and animals: "Detmold's finest plates are those produced for The Fables of Aesop (1909), The Life of the Bee (1911), and Hours of Gladness (1912), the latter with texts after Maurice Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet, naturalist, and mystic?A painting of chrysanthemums, contained in Hours of Gladness, is a glorious acknowledgement of the artist's debt to William Morris and Burne-Jones" (David Larkin, The Fantastic Creatures of Edward Julius Detmold).

About this Item: London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1924, 1924. Edition DeluxeOf Detmold's Rarest Book[DETMOLD, Edward J., illustrator]. The Arabian Nights. Tales from the Thousand and One Nights. Illustrated by E.J. Detmold. London: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d. [1924]. Edition Deluxe, limited to 100 copies only, here bound without the signed limitation leaf. Quarto (11 x 8 1/4 in; 280 x 211 mm). viii, 240 pp. Twelve tipped-in color plates. Publisher's full pictorially gilt vellum. Very light stain on front board, spine gilt a little rubbed, some very light foxing to endpapers but still an excellent copy of Detmold's rarest book.Some deluxe copies were bound, as here, without the signed limitation leaf, the result, apparently, of the publisher printing more than 100 copies and deluxe binding the extra sheets. Detmold illustrated "a number of books of fantasy drawing? which show a vivid imagination, fine drawing and warm coloring" (Houfe, 115)"The Detmold twins were a unique phenomenon in British art, recognized by their contemporaries as a single creative personality 'divided between two bodies'. Their remarkable etchings and watercolours of plants and animals, minutely detailed in the Japanese manner, are all prized collector's items. Charles Frederick and Edward Barton Detmold were born in Putney, south London, on 21 November 1883. Their middle names were later replaced by 'Maurice' and 'Julius', but the two boys were generally called Maurice and Edward?At the age of 5 the twins developed a dual passion for drawing and observing animals, and made regular sketching expeditions to Regent's Park Zoo and the Natural History Museum in South Kensington, where they drew detailed sketches of shells, crayfish, monkey skulls, and hundreds of other animal subjects. Their first book, Pictures from Birdland, comprising 24 colour plates, was published by J.M. Dent for the Christmas market in 1899. The Detmolds' most celebrated joint achievement, and among the finest book illustrations ever produced, was the set of 16 watercolours depicting scenes from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Macmillan first issued these in November 1903?Maurice suddenly committed suicide in April 1908. "Edward was devastated?[but] was determined to carry on with all the various ideas and projects they had originally planned in unison. He joined the ranks of Hodder & Stoughton's immortal band of gift book illustrators?with the superb 1909 edition of Aesop's Fables?For George Allen, Detmold illustrated Lemonnier's Birds and Beasts (1911), and two de luxe volumes by the Nobel prizewinner Maurice Maeterlinck, The Life of the Bee (1911) and Hours of Gladness (1912). He returned to Hodder & Stoughton with another popular animal series for children: The Book of Baby Birds (1912), The Book of Baby Pets (1913), The Book of Baby Dogs (1914), and Our Little Neighbours (1921). His final two opulent gift books for Hodder & Stoughton were Fabre's Book of Insects (1921), with 12 remarkable colour studies of the beautiful and bizarre denizens of the insect world a seen through Detmold's 'microscope' eye; and The Arabian Nights (1924), a very successful change of direction into the realms of exotic fantasy. On the strength of The Arabian Nights, Detmold could have become one of the greatest illustrators of fantasy and fairy stories?During the 1920s Detmold continued to draw, paint, and hold exhibitions of etchings and drypoints, but it was not long before he retired completely from public life?On 1 July 1957 he committed suicide, nearly half a century after the death of his twin brother" (Richard Dalby, The Golden Age of Children's Book Illustration, pp. 96-98).

Otherwise a very good copy, internally crisp and clean. Partially unopened.Belgian poetic dramatist and essayist Maurice Maeterlinck (1862-1949) "wrote in French, establishing himself as one of the leading figures in the symbolist movement with his play La Princesse Maleine (1889; English trans. 1892). In 1892 Pelléas et Mélisande appeared (trans. 1894), the work for which he is now chiefly remembered and the source of Debussy's opera of the same name (1902). He also achieved great contemporary popularity with L'Oiseau bleu (1908; The Blue Bird, 1909) and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1911. He drew heavily on traditions of romance and fairy tale, and the characteristic tone of much of his drama is one of doom-laden mystery and timeless melancholy. He also produced a number of essays of a philosophical nature, including La Vie des abeilles (1901; The Life of the Bee, 1901) and L'Intelligence des fleurs (1907; The Intelligence of Flowers, 1907)" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature).After the tragic death of his twin brother and collaborator, Edward Detmold concentrated his talents on books, primarily of flowers and animals: "Detmold's finest plates are those produced for The Fables of Aesop (1909), The Life of the Bee (1911), and Hours of Gladness (1912), the latter with texts after Maurice Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet, naturalist, and mystic?A painting of chrysanthemums, contained in Hours of Gladness, is a glorious acknowledgement of the artist's debt to William Morris and Burne-Jones" (David Larkin, The Fantastic Creatures of Edward Julius Detmold).Houfe, p. 283.
