Undated, but circa 1870. 325 x 490 mm (12¾ x 19¼ inches). Has some stains and closed tears, but generally in a good condition. In the 1800s carrying a walking stick / cane was a symbol of a gentleman who was fashion conscious, but one who was also ready to defend himself. Whilst fencing was still practiced, it did not enjoy the same popularity with the newly empowered bourgeoisie. Enterprising fencing masters soon translated their skills to the use of the walking stick or la canne. Fascinatingly, 'la canne de combat' is still a sport practiced today by thousands of cannistes around the world. Magnifique certificat militaire de compétence dans l'art du combat à la canne. Les soldats devaient acquérir de nombreuses compétences différentes. Ce diplôme particulier a été décerné à Monsieur Joseph Franc du 115e Régiment d'Infanterie Française. Compléter avec les signatures à l'encre des instructeurs présents. Non daté, mais vers 1870. 325 x 490 mm (12¾ x 19¼ pouces). A quelques taches et déchirures fermées, mais généralement en bon état. Dans les années 1800, porter une canne / une canne était le symbole d'un gentleman soucieux de la mode, mais également prêt à se défendre. Alors que l'escrime était encore pratiquée, elle ne jouissait pas de la même popularité auprès de la bourgeoisie nouvellement investie. Les maîtres d'armes entreprenants ont rapidement traduit leurs compétences dans l'utilisation de la canne ou de la canne. Fascinant, la canne de combat est toujours un sport pratiqué aujourd'hui par des milliers de cannistes à travers le monde.

  • 55 Original pen and ink book illustrations / 55 Illustrations originales de livres à la plume et à l'encre by LELOIR, Maurice.
    LELOIR, Maurice.
    55 Original pen and ink book illustrations / 55 Illustrations originales de livres à la plume et à l'encre

    Paris: N/A, 1910. A collection of 55 original pen and ink sketches, drafts or early versions of book illustrations. All are initialled M.L. and have been attributed to Maurice Leloir (1857-1940). He was a prolific book illustrator, and his illustration work is certainly in a similar style. Dating is based on when he was most active. The drawings are numbered 1-37 then 42-59 (so presumably missing four from a run). We have been unable to find which book they were intended for, so I suspect they were designs for an unpublished edition. They look almost as if they are for two different works, as one seems to be set in mid 19th Century France, and the second much earlier.…

    Paris: N/A, 1910. A collection of 55 original pen and ink sketches, drafts or early versions of book illustrations. All are initialled M.L. and have been attributed to Maurice Leloir (1857-1940). He was a prolific book illustrator, and his illustration work is certainly in a similar style. Dating is based on when he was most active. The drawings are numbered 1-37 then 42-59 (so presumably missing four from a run). We have been unable to find which book they were intended for, so I suspect they were designs for an unpublished edition. They look almost as if they are for two different works, as one seems to be set in mid 19th Century France, and the second much earlier. The first part involves a young man being cast adrift from a boat, who lands in France and travels slowly to Paris, where there is then fighting (seems to be the 1848 barricades). Victor Hugo is written on the back of one, so perhaps some sketches for Les Miserables, but only the barricades seem to fit with the plot. Towards the end of the sketches are a few of a young man climbing a two with sword in his mouth, rescuing children from burning towers etc. These feel as if they are intended to portray an earlier period. All the sketches are accomplished, and in ink, with some white corrections to the pages. They are all on stiff card which is 32cm x 25cm sized (and somewhat browned with age), and have been drawn to be half page etc. Some small marks and edgewear, but nothing to diminish the overall effect. A few small manuscript notes to indicate chapter / placement. A very attractive collection of original pieces. 320 by 250mm (12½ by 9¾ inches).

    . Une collection de 55 croquis originaux à la plume et à l'encre, ébauches ou premières versions d'illustrations de livres. Tous portent les initiales M.L. et ont été attribués à Maurice Leloir (1857-1940). Ce dernier était un illustrateur de livres prolifique, et son travail d'illustration est certainement dans un style similaire. La datation est basée sur la période où il était le plus actif. Les dessins sont numérotés de 1 à 37 puis de 42 à 59 (il manque donc probablement quatre exemplaires d'un tirage). Nous n'avons pas été en mesure de déterminer à quel livre ils étaient destinés, et je soupçonne donc qu'il s'agit de dessins pour une édition non publiée. On a l'impression qu'il s'agit de deux ouvrages différents, car l'un semble se dérouler au milieu du XIXe siècle en France, et l'autre beaucoup plus tôt. La première partie met en scène un jeune homme jeté à la dérive d'un bateau, qui atterrit en France et voyage lentement jusqu'à Paris, où se déroulent des combats (qui semblent être les barricades de 1848). Victor Hugo est écrit au dos de l'une d'entre elles, ce qui laisse supposer qu'il s'agit d'esquisses pour Les Misérables, mais seules les barricades semblent correspondre à l'intrigue. Vers la fin des esquisses, on trouve quelques dessins d'un jeune homme escaladant une tour avec une épée dans la bouche, sauvant des enfants de tours en flammes, etc. On a l'impression qu'elles sont destinées à dépeindre une période antérieure. Toutes les esquisses sont réalisées à l'encre, avec quelques corrections en blanc sur les pages. Ils sont tous sur une carte rigide de 32 cm x 25 cm (quelque peu brunie par l'âge), et ont été dessinés pour être en demi-page, etc. Quelques petites marques et usures sur les bords, mais rien qui ne diminue l'effet d'ensemble. Quelques petites notes manuscrites pour indiquer le chapitre / l'emplacement. Une collection très attrayante de pièces originales. 320 x 250 mm
