Description:
Paris: Berger-Levrault et Cie, 1877. Scarce second edition of Charles Gerard's authoritative work on the culinary traditions of the former region of Alsace. Octavo, original wrappers as issued, advertisements to the rear panel. In very good condition. Housed in a custom velvet-lined half morocco clamshell box. Gerard's L'Ancienne Alsace a Table is a foremost example of the late nineteenth century French approach to writing about gastronomy. Gastronomy has historically been a primary factor in defining French regional and national identity, and at the turn of the 20th century, accounts of regional recipes, products, manners and customs penned by local dignitaries became a competitive practice. L'Ancienne Alsace a Table includes a study of the archaeology, cuisine, traditions, and 'art of the table' of the former region of Alscace.

Paris: Boussod et Valadon, 1885-89. First edition of this wonderfully illustrated work. Large folios, 3 volumes. Elegantly bound in full red morocco, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands, top edge gilt. Limited to 100 sets with the 2 volumes suite of 150 plates on Japanese paper.

"Detaille est un des peintres les plus populaires de l'école française du XIXe siècle. Peintre quasi officiel de l'armée française, Detaille s'est fait remarquer à la fois par l'ampleur de ses compositions et par le soin dont il témoigne dans l'exactitude des détails." (Bénézit).

Description:
Milano: Ulrico Hoepli, [1911]. Finley bound Italian printing of Dante's masterpiece. 14mo, bound in full gilt-decorated vellum with titles to the spine and front panel in black and red. In very good condition. Ownership inscription. Widely considered the most important work of Italian literature and one of the greatest works of world literature, Dante's Divine Comedy takes as its literal subject the state of the soul after death and presents an image of divine justice meted out as due punishment or reward. The work was originally simply titled Comedia (so also in the first printed edition, published in 1472), Tuscan for "Comedy", and was later adjusted to the modern Italian Commedia. The adjective Divina was added by Giovanni Boccaccio, in reference to the work's subject matter and lofty style, and the first edition to name the poem Divina Comedia was that of Venetian humanist Lodovico Dolce, published in 1555 by Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari.

Description:
Milano: Nicolo Bettoni, 1824. Finely bound example of Torquato Tasso's epic poem La Gerusalemme Liberata, or Jerusalem Delivered. Octavo, two volumes bound into one in three quarters vellum over marbled boards with gilt titles and tooling to the spine. In very good condition. First published in 1581, Torquato Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered tells a largely mythified version of the First Crusade in which Christian knights, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, battle Muslims in order to take Jerusalem. The poem is composed of 1,917 stanzas in ottava rima (15,336 hendecasyllabic lines), grouped into twenty cantos of varying length. The poem was hugely successful, and sections or moments from the story were used in works in other media all over Europe, especially in the period before the French Revolution and the Romantic movement, which provided alternative stories combining love, violence, and an exotic setting.

Garcia Marquez has been quoted as saying that prior to the publication of One Hundred Years of Solitude none of his books had sold more than 700 copies. Despite the poor sales and even after the success of Cien Anos de Soledad, Garcia Marquez described La Hojarasca as the favorite of his own works because of its spontaneity and honesty.

Widely celebrated as the first appearance of Macondo, the fictitious village later celebrated in One Hundred Years of Solitude, La Hojarosca was a testing ground for many of the themes and characters later immortalized in One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Description:
Soixante-Dix_Sept Bibliophiles. Soixante-Dix-Sept signed limited edition of Machiavelli's classic comedy, The Mandrake. Folio, loose leaves as issued, illustrated with 12 original lithographs by Claude Durrens, additional suite of lithographs in rear. One of only 77 copies signed by the artist on the colophon. In very good condition. housed in the original one quarter morocco and chemise slip case. Although The Mandrake was first published in 1524 and first performed in the carnival season of 1526, Machiavelli likely wrote the five-act comedy in 1518 as a distraction from his bitterness at having been excluded from the diplomatic and political life of Florence following the 1512 reversion to Medici rule. Both contemporary and modern scholars read the play as an overt critique of the House of Medici; however, Machiavelli set the action in 1504 during the period of the Florentine Republic in order to express his frustrations without fear of censure from patrons already ill-disposed towards him and his writing.
