546 Chamberlain, Samuel British Bouquet, An Epicurean Tour
Gourmet 1963  Hardcover. Good Octavo 
"British Bouquet is based on this series of articles that began in "Gourmet" in January, 1960, under the title of "The Beauty of Britain," and that continued over a span of almost four years. It is the third of a series on European travel and gastronomy. The first, Bouquet de France , was published in 1952 and the second, Italian Bouquet, appeared in 1958. The present volume follows the procedure of it predecessors, visiting Britain county by county, seeking out the towns, historic sites, and architectural treasure most worth seeking, and also naming a few country inns and hotels where the traveler will find hospitality and good cheer.

Our story does not begin in London, since this is a book about the provinces, but it ends there, in a brief guide to the epicurean strongholds of the capital. Finally, to demonstrate the virtues of the much maligned British cookery, a Treasury of British recipes brings the book to a close."

Unpaginated (24 pages). The book is illustrated by 11 tipped in color gravure plates. Each plate faces the page containing its brief description, which is in fact, the verso of the preceding plate.

"Jean Fouquet is situated between the brothers Limbourg, who worked at the beginning of the fifteenth century for Jean Duc de Berri, and Jean Colombe, who, at the end of the same century, completed the greatest of the illuminated manuscripts the Limbourgs had started, Les Tres Riches Heures of this noble lord. This period marks the apogee of the art of the miniature in France, the attainment of an unsurpassed degree of perfection.

Between Flemish art, which spread to Burgundy, and the art of Italy, Jean Fouquet, who was assuredly acquainted with the work of the Limbourgs and who probably traveled to Italy, has left, like a good Tourangeau, the imprint of his French genius on this refined, delicate and at time powerful art, and has enriched it with some of its purest masterpieces."

The two page Introduction by Henri Malo, (Curator of the Condé Museum), recounts the horrifying story of the loss and destruction of this beautiful Hours in 1630, the subsequent locating of the individual pages--often one at a time--followed by its painstaking reconstruction.

University of Mass Press. 0870230689 1971 Hardcover in DJ. Good Good Octavo 
349 pp "William Butler Yeats conceived The Shadowy Waters around 1883 when he was in his late teens some eighteen years before it was first published as a dramatic poem in 1900. It was not produced as a play until 1904. In this volume the editors bring together prepublication drafts of the unique play - until now dispersed an d uncorrelated - which show the revisions Yeats made during those twenty some years. Even in this formative period when developing as poet and playwright, Yeats's interest in mythology, and his attempt to penetrate its meaning and to associate mythology and vision is evident."
