THE EMPEROR OF PARIS., Richardson, C.S.
101 Richardson, C.S. THE EMPEROR OF PARIS.
Doubleday Canada 2012 0385670907 / 9780385670906 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
278 pp, 8vo (8 1/8" H). "An intricate and graceful story of the beginnings of an unlikely romance between an illiterate Parisian baker and a woman hiding in a world of books and art. Octavio Notre-Dame comes from a long line of bakers. Working the ovens of the eighth-district establishment known throughout the neighbourhood as the cake-slice, he produces baguettes and brioches with timeless perfection. Nutured by his father, Octavio discovers his imagination in stories, but like generations of Notre-Dame men before him, Octavio bears the shame of being unable to read. Isabeau Normande is born to parents devoted to appearance, to the beauty that shimmers on the surface of things. As a child she suffers a disfiguring accident. As a young woman she finds solace in the basement of the Louvre, restoring great works of art to their original glory. She loses herself in the faces of others while covering the scars that mark her own. But Isabeau's deepest comfort comes from books. Set in motion by an endearing cast of misfits - an impoverished painter, a near-blind watchmaker, a jazz-playing veteran of the trenches of World War I and a lonely bookseller - this is a story of the happenstance and fateful twists that can propel two would-be lovers into each other's paths."

244 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "Ernest Hemingway's sister is a talented author in her own right, and in this book she gives a lively and delightful picture of the upbringing of a remarkable family. Their fathe r, Dr Hemingway, with his rugged personality, his pioneering reminiscences, and his love of open-air sports, was much admired by the young Ernest - who later came also to appreciate his true courage as an independent doctor. There was a cl o s e b o n d between these two: and one of a different kind between the five children and his mother, the gentle, rather pampered, very musical Grace Hall....Mrs Sanford takes us into a warm and vivid intimacy with Ernest the prolific inventor of n ic k- n am es , Er n est the aspiring musician, and the avid reader. Later (she and Ernest) competed in their first efforts at literary composition. Mrs Sanford tells how Ernest left home to work on the Kansas City 'Star', and records the episo de of his i ntr odu ct ion t o the Toronto 'Star'. (This book) tells of a large and lively family brought up on the old-fashioned virtues - a spirited family, full of activity. And as the member of it closest to the author, we have Ernest Heming way as he was in the yea rs o f i nnocence."

Familiar topic s s u c h as the cult of suicide, ritualised revenge and the lore of the samurai sword are seen in the context of an all-encompassing warrior culture that was expressed through art and poetry as much as through violence.

Sutton, Stroud, 1999. 
204 pp, large 8vo (9 5/8" H), soft cover. ISBN 0750922338 B&w photographs, reproductions. "King George III and Queen Charlotte had fifteen children, all but two surviving to maturity. The eldest, who became Prince Regent and King George IV, is t oday less remembered for his patronage of the arts than for his extravagance, and for the harsh treatment of his wife Caroline. As Commander-in-Chief of the British army, the administrative qualities of Frederick, Duke of York, are largely f o r g o t t e n, while King William IV, usually dismissed as a figure of fun, brought a new affability to the monarchy which helped him through the storms engendered during the passage of the Great Reform Bill in 1832. The princesses, for many ye ar s vi ct im s of t heir parents' possessiveness, married only late in life, if at all, yet they have been disparaged as colourless nonentities. This book describes the relationships between the siblings and chronologically recounts the life of t he fa mil y; the i ntr igu ing characters who surrounded the royal court; and the princes' liaisons which resulted in the extraordinary situation that - when Princess Charlotte of Wales died unexpectedly in 1817 - George III, at the age of seventy- nin e, did not hav e a sin gle legitimate grandchild. Three of his children then hurried to the altar." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - faint crease down spine. Near Fine
