Buchbeschreibung Huth, p. 103; Menessier de La Lance II, p. 414; Nissen, ZBI 3380. First edition of a rare anatomical plate book with fine lithographed plates illustrating the proportions, bones and muscles of all parts of the horse. The muscles in the anatomical plates are subtly coloured and shaded in pink. The book was written by the French painter Jean Claude Reverchon (1796-1851), who taught art at the veterinary college in Lyon from 1839 to 1836.Mennessier de la Lance notes that some copies have the plates in black and white, while some have them coloured. Our copy matches the collation given by Mennessier de la Lance and Nissen, with (as usual) no descriptive text for plate 9 (showing only the horse's skeleton, from front and back) and without plate 18, printed by Lefevre without accompanying descriptive text, noted in a few copies by KVK/WorldCat.The edition therefore includes 19 letterpress leaves, all printed on one side only: title-page, avant-propos, explanatory text for the frontispiece and explanatory text for plates 1-8 and 10-17. The book has been treated for mildew, leaving some spotting, marginal soiling and one plate wrinkled. Pictorial horse book in good condition with stunning anatomical plates. Artikel-Nr. FABE4ERZH1LS

Buchbeschreibung This is certainly the largest, most detailed and comprehensive documentation of an interior design project on the grand scale we have ever come across. King Peter I of Serbia commissioned August Bosse, the owner of a Weimar company for interior design, to supply designs and estimates for the about 80 rooms in the Belgrade New Konak, the shell of which was completed about 1912. The building was damaged during both World Wars and was completely altered and the site serves now as Belgrade's town hall.The two enormous volumes come together with files containing hundreds of pages of duplicated typescript and manuscript pages of estimates and accosting, detailing the stucco, painting, carpentry, etc. work, as well as a stack of 36 half-plate glass negatives, tanned leather samples for upholstery or wall hangings and six blueprints of the plans of the building, lettered in Serbian and with German annotations in crayon. Included is as well a hand-written account of the project by the colleague and wife of the designer August Bosse, Else Bosse (1877-1965), written in 1947, from which we translated the most relevant passages. NOTES King Peter I of Serbia commisioned an aide to visited several noble families in Germany. Because of the construction of a new castle in Belgrade he was interested in interior design. During his travels in Silesia and Turingia he saw interiors which impressed him and came across the name of the Weimar company Bosse. We are lucky to have an account of the history of the project through a memoir by Bosse's wife included with the designs: 'We were encouraged by an agent to participate in working on the design plans. Hugo went there and visited the half-finished building and discussed the project with the court architect. The rooms were to to be furnished in French styles and in the highest quality. It was a big task; about 80 rooms. Hugo loved the challenge; however, he mistrusted the matter a bit, because Belgrade had left with him a discomforting impression. He thought that such a lavish building would not be in harmony with the bad roads with deep potholes and modest houses On top of that the war [of the Ottoman Empire] with Serbia broke out in 1912, which made Hugo wait and see. He wanted to see the outcome of the war and if King Peter would still be able to have his plans carried out. In spring of 1913 the architect came to the court of Weimar, in order to see the progress of the plans. The king had already asked for a prospectus. We had to console him and promised, to resume work on the plan immediately. The war had ended favourably for Serbia. With full steam we went ahead with the work. At that time we had three daughtsmen in the studio, and in addition we involved architects from outside who participated in the execution of the designs. We established a system, according to which the drawings where all of the same size, in watercolour or pencil, so that the different walls and views were depicted in a similar way. Many a night hour was devoted to this work, as it was most quiet then. Hugo got himself a Parlograph [a recording device] The other day the young girl would listen to the recordings with headphones and type [what Hugo had dictated] Although we had married during the art nouveau period, we had always had an affinity to classical styles. Hugo introduced me to this world and we accquired many beautiful works on these styles which we studied together. It was beautiful to be creative together Both of us determined the styles for the different rooms; I prepared and executed the details. We had to harmonize the woodwork with the textiles and carpets etc. We were pleased with the success, as much as the king was impressed. [After having submitted the designs to the king in Belgrade], the king had a look at the concepts and talked in German with Hugo. He decided on materials for the various rooms and expressed his ideas and wishes. A big book with watercolours was made, in a dignifying pigskin. Artikel-Nr. 37440AB
