Fish, Williston
HIS WILL
: H. Frank Smith for His Friends, 1924

Limited edition. Octavo. 8 pp. Signed and initialed by Frank. Paper-backed boards with title label on cover. VG- Moderate loss of paper to spine crown and heel, and a couple of perforations along hinges. Freshly wrapped in Pearl. Rare Christmas gift book of the "Last Will of Charles Lounsbury" by Williston Fish and printed by H. Frank Smith, a NY printer and typesetter. The edition is limited to 150 copies, each signed to a specific person, in this case John Clyde Oswald, president of the National Arts Club, editor of the American Printer magazine and a leading authority on Benjamin Franklin. The limitation reads "One hundred and fifty copies of His Will were printed by H. Frank Smith for his friends, to convey to them his wishes for their happiness. Christmas 1924." OCLC lists this edition in 2 libraries; however they have the name "Theodore Weicker" (president of Squibb) in the limitation. It is possible that Smith was the printer for this order by Weicker and made a second run for himself, although there is no other documentation supporting this.

RODIN: Le Festin d'une Vie
Paris: Editions du Chene, 1997

Quarto. 191 pp; profuse color photographs & b/w illustrations; bibliography. Text in French. Hardcover with dustjacket, ribbon marker. Near Fine/Near Fine, a clean, unmarked copy; jacket with no rips or tears. SIGNED by photographer on half-title page. This book focuses on Auguste Rodin, the man: his childhood in Paris, learning the trade and his years in Brussels, attending artistic and literary circles, meeting with Camille Claudel, but also life in the villa with Rose Beuret, his girlfriend, and finally his life at the Hotel Biron, which became the Museum Rodin. By revealing aspects of both more intimate and anecdotal nature, we discover good living at family meals, lunches with friends at Meudon, his villa and lavish banquets offered in his honor. Rodin's correspondence, his notes and drafts, documents and testimonies abound with gastronomic allusions and tell us about his tastes and eating habits. Includes many recipes.
