Description:
Senlis; Folio, art, Senlis, Signed, First Edition, 1929; Maricourt, du baron André de; This is a loose publication and was never bound. The paper is a heavy stock with some toning and the occasional very light fox spots probably due to the paper maker. The slip case is nearly destroyed and wanting. The book itself is clean cover and tight. There are 14 full page color plates that are exquisitely detailed by the artist Charles-Jean Hallo as well as chapter heading engravings as well (15) plus some smaller vignettes throughout. The publication also has an interesting dedication "To Mr. and Mrs. Emerson with much affection from the Chamberlains, et bon voyage". Signed also by the author du Baron Andre de Maricourt and the artist. A very rare work.
World Catalog of Libraries only finds one copy as shown below:

Description:
Marcelle Germaine Tailleferre (19 April 1892 – 7 November 1983) was a French composer and the only female member of the group of composers known as Les Six. Biography She was born Marcelle Taillefesse at Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, Val-de-Marne, France, but as a young woman she changed her last name to "Tailleferre" to spite her father, who had refused to support her musical studies. She studied piano with her mother at home, composing short works of her own, after which she began studying at the Paris Conservatory where she met Louis Durey, Francis Poulenc, Darius Milhaud, Georges Auric, and Arthur Honegger. At the Paris Conservatory her skills were rewarded with prizes in several categories. Most notably, Tailleferre wrote 18 short works in the Petit livre de harpe de Madame Tardieu for Caroline Luigini, the Conservatory's Assistant Professor of harp. With her new friends, she soon was associating with the artistic crowd in the Paris districts of Montmartre and Montparnasse, including the sculptor… Read more
