After Pieter De Hooch. 

Psychedelic poster, 1967, designed by Victor Moscoso.  

From the THINGS THAT HAVE INTERESTED ME collection of books and decorative arts in my shop. Victor Moscoso designed the poster incorporating a doorway detail from Pieter De Hooch's  painting,  The Courtyard of a House in Delft, 1658 .  for THE DOOR'S series of concerts at the Matrix at The Fillmore, San Francisco. It is a contemplative domestic doorway scene for which the early Netherlandish painter was famous. I am thrilled to offer the poster for sale in my shop. Please see the links to both artists for a greater appreciation of the poster. And if you don't know who the Doors were please click here for that link. $950.

ADVERTISING FAN. ephemera from Cafe Martin [1901-1913], NYC. early 20th century. credit for my description goes  to Henry Voigt for his highly informative blog entitled THE AMERICAN MENU. Cafe Martin was opened in 1901 by the Martin brothers, Jean and Louis- on the foundation of Delmonico’s restaurant at 26th Street between 5th and Broadway. It was sumptuous and well orchestrated, easily accommodating a society wedding or political caucus nominating supper. Fan is Japonisme-Victorian style, wooden sticks(9”) and guards, brass rivet and loop, cotton cord tassel. In VG. $150.

This is a  dominotier for an éventail or handfan. The bright colors are reminscencent of Tarascon fabric-- at least to me.   It's in the shop until I'm ready to part with it-- bright and  charming and framed with provenance seems to have been a museum deaccession.   $950.

Owen Simmons, F.C.S. THE BOOK OF BREAD. London: Maclaren & Sons, n.d. 1903. 4to. 360pp. green cloth with gold stamped title. The author had the distinction of being the:

Highest Possible Medalist in the United Kingdom in Bread-making in 1886

Technological Examiner (1888-89) to the National Association of Master Bakers and Confectioners of

 Great Britain and Ireland
Certificated by Examinations under Government (Science and Art Department) in Chemistry, Mechanics, Machine Construction and Hygiene, and in Bread-Making Under the City and Guilds of London Institute (with “Honours”)
Expert since 1888 to “The British Baker”
Bread Judge at the International Exhibitions
Juror to the Universal Food and Cookery Association
lecturer on Bread-making Technology at the International Exhibitions, at the Borough Polytechnic, and
“The National School of Bakery”
etc., etc.

How to bake a good loaf, in a technological, scholarly and a scientific sort of way.

Illustrated with  “actual size” photographs- 8 black and white, as paste-ons, two superb “silver gelatin” photographs, 11 color photographic prints and 4 black and white photographic illustrations- all of types of bread loaves. In an introductory essay the author explains the difficulty in producing these photographs to illustrate the do’s and don'ts of breadmaking.Martin Parr and Gerry Badger included THE BOOK OF BREAD in their book THE PHOTOBOOK: A HISTORY VOLUME 1, 2004, and and also mention it in interviews publicizing their book- curiously comparing the book and author to a 1980’s conceptual artist. It has since “risen” in the “sought after” art book and rare book market.

Not mentioned in Elizabeth David’s bibliography in her comprehensive Bread Book published in 1977- a green cloth hardcover,  rubbed at the corners, stamped title on front and spine, clean pages tight , no cracking,  decorative end pages. several pages of advertising  by millers and of machinery.

ou l'occupation favorite d'un Peuple Penseur.


Plus d'un fils albion au port grave et pesant

passe pou run penseur profond et penetrant

on se trompe en cela comme en toute autre affaire

milord ne pense pas, messeurs, mais il digere

et comme il sait fort bien que les distractions

sont souvent un obstacle aux grandes fonctions

d'un estomac qu'il craint autant qu'il le revere

il ne veut pas troubler l'utile ministere
