(8 pp;. 17x22cm) We have given these documents to Michael Holland, researcher and professor of French literature at St Hugh's College, Oxford, author of several works on Maurice Blanchot Before that say: Essays on Blanchot appeared in 2015 at Hermann. His detailed analysis is forthcoming in Cahiers Maurice Blanchot under the direction of Danielle Cohen-Levinas. We use excerpts from this study to present these previously unknown and unpublished documents. The discretion of Blanchot on his youth and the almost total lack of biographical material forced the few biographers Blanchot many assumptions about the path of the most secret writer of the twentieth century. The school report and other documents in this set and can trace the tuition Blanchot. Holland notes that there "until 1921 Blanchot continued his studies at home, under the guidance of his father, Isidore, literature teacher who offered private lessons to children from wealthier families. [...] The small collection of "Satisfaction Testimonials" and "Honor Citations" signed "Professor / I. Blanchot" are precious and touching record of these years. » Blanchot then made "studies for three years at the College of Chalon-sur-Saône Boys [...] [and] has passed its trough in 1924 and not in 1922 [...] He chose the training provided by Section B (live Latin-Languages) [...] He chose to complete his studies in philosophy class. A school report covering the three years of schooling in Chalon has a very detailed picture of the young student. After a year in which the Second Progress "Good or Very Good student" to "excellent student" can be clearly observed in some subjects [...] Only downside to this brilliant picture: the disease. [...] It is noted that it is the first course that seem to have been affected by this episode. » in the light of these, Michael Holland puts next "Blanchot's career and that of Jean-Paul Sartre, Henri IV to Louis-le-Grand finally came to Ulm Street ENS 1924. Even golf champion, same rewards and same honors, each is an outstanding student. And it is found in Imagination Sartre published in 1936 but began during its preparation Psychology Certificate 1927, the same interest in the ideas of Ribot who sprinkles his essays. [...] Four essays psychology, a philosophy and literature offer valuable insight into what the young Blanchot was able during the year that he was preparing his bachelor's degree. By his comments on the sidelines of essays from Blanchot his philosophy teacher, Mr. Bochot shows that he knew he was dealing with an exceptional mind, sometimes unruly but capable of analysis and critical acute. » Michael Holland then provides a detailed analysis of the various work of Blanchot, including correlated with the writings of Ribot, highlighting the knowledge and early critical young Blanchot. It also notes in these early works the premises of a thought that soon will mark the literary critic of the twentieth century. Here are some excerpts of his work, giving an overview of the quality and interest of the student dissertations Blanchot: "This essay follows closely the argument of the article" The emotional logic "of Th. Ribot published in the Philosophical Magazine in 1904." "The more daring is the claim that the affective similarity is also the basis of some associations of states of consciousness. The "emotional tone" brought by the joy, sadness becomes a center of attention grouping of states of consciousness without rational relationship between them, a pivot around which agitate unexpected groupings. It is the artist who is the first recipient of this analogy sensations that brings such a man born blind to explain the Scarlet comparing it to the sound of a trumpet (eg which originated in Locke and is regularly quoted in the nineteenth century). Rejecting embryological and anatomical explanations for these associations Blanchot says that "the psychological explanation seems the only good", adding: "This way to feel a bit special is not, however, the privilege of a few eccentric or imbalanced, not to mention the fantastic designs or even surprising sentiments expressed some symbolist and decadent, we find even among the people, and perhaps especially among the people, that singular sensibility others cultivate and refine, as a precious rarity " . » "Having concluded that in many cases the cause of our associations is the emotional disposition and not elsewhere, Blanchot goes further: the emotional tone that accompanies associated performances can also strengthen their relationship. Here Blanchot brings in its reasoning author close but different from both Th Ribot. American philosopher William James. " "From here, the idea of" emotional affinity "that connects what comes to mind our current arrangements inspired Blanchot examples more personal (" When we are sad ... The happy man today ... tomorrow ... my enthusiasm bankruptcy of my happiness ") .. "Blanchot disputes the Ribot drawing on his personal experience considered equal to everyone. » "Here, as in essays devoted to Th. Ribot there is dissatisfaction Blanchot before the established dualisms, attention to identify a third position that complicates relations. Here it is with the work of Edmond Goblot (1858-1935) Blanchot continued his analysis. » "When studying in La Fontaine's fable, Blanchot says," we must be placed at two points of view. " "Why is this option?" meets his teacher. In literature as philosophy, we can see, the same concern to go beyond simple outlook characterizes the approach of the young student. » "It is in relation to that company as" the old storyteller gauloiseries has remained himself. " From there to suggest that such an example has inspired the novelist Blanchot who will work a few years later, there is only one step. But to understand the young nationalist who will soon (if not already) forge commitments we continue to blame him, it should be noted that what makes La Fontaine really a French poet, is to be "The only perhaps in his time who saw through our forests poor woodcutter all covered with branches," the only one to have found a way under "cold and shiny shell of the words" to trouble the heart by show. In short - and this is evident in all the essays of this period - the concern that animates the young Blanchot, and inspire her pronouncements he will regret later, is deeply human. His teacher asks: "Why do you sacrifice lyricism?". This is because now, for Blanchot, writing is out of the prescribed frameworks, whether moral or aesthetic, and get in front of the crisis, in the 1920s, began to make man the The challenge of complex and formidable powers. » More than relics of his childhood, these documents are a valuable record of the education and training of one of the best minds of our time. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Précieuse réunion de documents scolaires : rédactions, carnets et bulletins scolaires, carnets de bons points. Huit relevés de notes de décembre 1921 à avril 1924 Un livret scolaire (2nde et 1ère B) Un carnet de bons points, dont la couverture astucieuse a été confectionnée par le père de Maurice Blanchot Une invitation à la réunion de rentrée des étudiants de l'Action Française Un tableau d'honneur (1ère B) Deux distributions solenelles de prix (2nde et 1ère B) Sept bordereaux de demande des livres au magasin de la bibliothèque universitaire de Strasbourg Un sujet dactylographié de composition française pour le certificat d'études supérieures de juin 1927 Un sujet dactylographié de version latine pour le certificat d'études supérieures de juin 1927 Un devoir de français (1ère B) sur les Fables de La Fontaine (10pp., 17x22cm) Huit versions latines Deux thèmes et une version allemande Cinq dissertations de philosophie : - La logique affective (8 pp. ; 17x22cm) - Le rôle des éléments affectifs dans l'association des idées (8 pp. ; 17x22cm) - Le rôle des éléments affectifs et moteurs dans l'attention (8 pp. ; 17x22cm) - "Tout sentiment réel perd sa force, dans la mesure où il s'intellectualise" (8 pp. ; 17x22cm) - Qu'est-ce qu'une science théorique et une science appliquée ? (8 pp. ; 17x22cm) Nous avons confié ces documents à Michael Holland, chercheur et professeur de littérature française au St Hugh's College à Oxford, auteur de plusieurs travaux sur Maurice Blanchot dont Avant dire : Essais sur Blanchot paru en 2015 chez Hermann. Son analyse détaillée paraîtra prochainement dans les Cahiers Maurice Blanchot. Nous utilisons ici quelques extraits de cette étude pour présenter ces documents inédits et jusqu'alors inconnus. La grande discrétion de Blanchot sur sa jeunesse et l'absence presque totale de documents biographiques ont contraint les rares biographes de Blanchot à de nombreuses suppositions sur le parcours du plus secret écrivain du XXème siècle. Le livret scolaire et divers autres documents dans cet ensemble permettent ainsi de retracer la scolarité de Blanchot. Holland y relève que « jusqu'en 1921 Blanchot a poursuivi ses études à domicile, sous la direction de son père, Isidore, professeur de lettres qui offrait des cours privés à des enfants de familles aisées. [...] La petite collection de "Témoignages de Satisfaction" et de "Citations d'Honneur" signés "Le professeur / I. Blanchot" sont la précieuse et touchante trace de ces années. » Blanchot a ensuite fait des « études pendant trois ans au Collège de Garçons de Chalon-sur-Saône [...] [et] a donc passé son bac en 1924 et non pas en 1922 [...] Il a choisi la formation offerte par la Section B (Latin-Langues vivantes) [...]  Il a choisi de terminer ses études en Classe de Philosophie. Un livret scolaire couvrant les trois années de sa scolarité à Chalon présente une image très détaillé du jeune élève. Après une année de Seconde où le progrès de "Bon ou Très Bon élève" à "Excellent élève" peut s'observer clairement pour certaines matières [...] Seule ombre à ce tableau brillant : la maladie. [...]  On constate que ce sont les cours de Première qui semblent avoir été affectés par cet épisode. » à la lumière de ces éléments, Michael Holland met en regard « la carrière de Blanchot et celle de Jean-Paul Sartre qui, d'Henri IV à Louis-le-Grand est finalement entré à l'ENS de la rue d'Ulm en 1924. Même parcours de champion, mêmes récompenses et mêmes honneurs, chacun est un élève hors pair. Et l'on constate dans L'Imagination de Sartre, publié en 1936 mais commencé pendant sa préparation du Certificat de Psychologie vers 1927, un même intérêt pour les idées de Théodule Ribot qui parsème ses dissertations. [...] Quatre dissertations de Psychologie, une de Philosophie et une de Littérature offrent un aperçu précieux de ce dont le jeune Blanchot était capable pendant l'année où il préparait son baccalauréat. Par ses commentaires en marge des dissertations de Blanchot son professeur de philosophie, M. Bochot montre bien qu'il savait qu'il avait affaire à un esprit exceptionnel, parfois indiscipliné mais capable d'analyses et de critiques d'une grande acuité. » Michael Holland propose ensuite une analyse détaillée des divers travaux de Blanchot, en corrélation notamment avec les écrits de Ribot, qui met en relief les connaissances et le précoce esprit critique du jeune Blanchot. Il relève également dans ces travaux de jeunesse les prémisses d'une pensée qui marquera bientôt la critique littéraire du XXème siècle. Voici quelques extraits de son travail, donnant un aperçu de la qualité et de l'intérêt des dissertations de l'élève Blanchot : « Cette dissertation suit de près l'argument de l'article "La Logique affective" de Th. Ribot paru dans la Revue philosophique en 1904. » « Plus hardie est l'affirmation que la similitude affective est aussi à la base de certaines associations d'états de conscience. Le "ton émotionnel" apporté par la joie, la tristesse devient un centre d'attention groupant des états de conscience sans rapport rationnel entre eux, un pivot autour duquel s'agitent des groupements inattendus. C'est l'artiste qui est le premier bénéficiaire de cette analogie des sensations qui amène par exemple un aveugle-né à expliquer le rouge écarlate en le comparant au son d'une trompette (exemple qui a son origine chez Locke et qui est régulièrement cité au XIXème siècle). Rejetant des explications embryologiques et anatomiques de ces associations Blanchot affirme que "l'explication psychologique paraît la seule bonne" avant d'ajouter : "cette manière de sentir un peu spéciale n'est point, cependant, le privilège de quelques excentriques ou déséquilibrés, sans parler des conceptions fantastiques ni même des sentiments surprenants qu'expriment certains symbolistes et décadents, on rencontre, même chez le peuple et peut-être surtout chez le peuple, cette sensibilité singulière que d'autres cultivent et raffinent, comme une rareté précieuse". » « Ayant conclu que dans bien des cas la cause de nos associations réside dans la disposition affective et non ailleurs, Blanchot va plus loin : le ton émotionnel qui accompagne des représentations associées peut aussi renforcer leur liaison. Ici, Blanchot fait entrer dans son raisonnement un auteur proche mais aussi bien différent de Th. Ribot : le philosophe américain William James ». « À partir d'ici, l'idée de l'"affinité émotionnelle" qui relie ce qui nous vient à l'esprit à nos dispositions actuelles inspire à Blanchot des exemples de plus en plus personnels (« Quand nous sommes tristes... L'homme heureux... aujourd'hui mon enthousiasme... demain la faillite de mon bonheur »).. « Blanchot conteste la thèse de Ribot en faisant appel à son expérience personnelle considérée comme égale à celle de tout le monde. » « Ici comme dans les dissertations consacrées à Th. Ribot on constate l'insatisfaction de Blanchot devant les dualismes établis, son souci de dégager une troisième position qui en complique les relations. Ici c'est à l'aide des travaux d'Edmond Goblot (1858-1935) que Blanchot poursuit ses analyses. »   « Lorsqu'on étudie la fable chez La Fontaine, dit Blanchot, "il faut se placer à un double point de vue". "Pourquoi cette option ?" répond son professeur. En littérature comme on philosophie, on le constate, le même souci d'aller au-delà des perspectives simples caractérise l'approche du jeune élève. »  « C'est par rapport à cette société que "le vieux conteur de gauloiseries a su rester lui-même". De là à suggérer qu'un tel exemple ait inspiré le Blanchot romancier qui se mettra à l'œuvre peu d'années plus tard, il n'y a qu'un pas. Mais pour comprendre le jeune nationaliste qui va bientôt (si ce n'est déjà fait) forger des engagements qu'on continue de lui reprocher, on notera que ce qui fait de La Fontaine un poète vraiment français, c'est d'avoir été "le seul peut-être en son temps qui ait vu passer par nos forêts le pauvre bûcheron tout couvert de ramée", le seul à avoir trouvé le moyen, sous "la froide et brillante enveloppe des mots", de troubler le cœur par ce spectacle. Bref - et c'est manifeste dans toutes les dissertations de cette période - le souci qui anime le jeune Blanchot, et qui lui inspirera des prises de position qu'il regrettera par la suite, est profondément humain.  Son professeur demande : "Pourquoi sacrifiez-vous le lyrisme ?". C'est parce que déjà, pour Blanchot, écrire c'est sortir des cadres prescrits, qu'ils soient moraux ou esthétiques, et aller au-devant de la crise qui, dans les années 1920, commence à faire de l'homme l'enjeu de puissances complexes et redoutables. »    Plus que des reliques de son enfance, ces documents constituent une trace précieuse de l'éducation et de la formation d'un des esprits les plus éclairés de notre temps.

        The History of Shanghai - Part 1

      Shanghai, Kelly & Walsh Limited, 1921. Printed and published for the Municipal Council. - 1 thick volume in-4, 504 pp.-v, illustrated with a large folding panorama of The Bund as frontispiece, 5 folding maps and 6 plates, rebound in modern brown leather, a very good and clean copy. A very scarce book on Shanghai History. This is Part 1 only, the second part is even more rare. "Nearly a century has run its course since the birth of the modern Shanghai, and in recent years the need has often been expressed for a history which would deal in a comprehensive manner with the various aspects, historical, political and commercial, of the Foreign Settlements there situate, a work which, whilst in no sense a reflexion on those excellent publications on the subject now extant, would, by its very magnitude, demand that private enterprise should be complemented by public aid. In 1906, the Municipal Council accordingly commissioned the late Mr. G. Lanning to undertake the compilation of the present work on its behalf. For over thirteen years he devoted himself to this task, so that the greater portion of the volume was ready for publication at the time of his much lamented death in January last. Fortunately the Council has been able to secure the services of Mr. S. Couling, to continue and bring to fruition the work to which the late Mr. Lanning had devoted some many years of his life."

André Mare and Louis Süe were both trained painters who turned to interior design as early as 1905. Due to their lack of design or craft training, both Süe and Mare were grouped with the Coloristes in Paris before the First World War. Their association in La Compagnie des Arts Francais helped give birth to the Art Deco movement. Illustrated with a frontispiece and ornaments throughout by Paul Vera.

        21 autograph letters (17), lettercards (1) and postcards (3), mostly signed.

      Various places, 1921 and 1922.. 4to and 8vo. Altogether 37 pp.. Very comprehensive collection of private letters written to his last love, Rose Ader (1890-1955). "Between 1921 and 1923, Puccini enjoyed what was likely his last romantic fling when he fell passionately in love with a young German soprano, Rose Ader, for whom he created the part of Liu in his final work, Turandot'" (The New Grove Dictionary). "My good and sweet Rosa", Puccini wrote on April 17, 1921, on one of his earliest letters to Rose, "I am deeply moved as I write you. I would wish to be able to tell you what I have in my heart - if only you could understand! Besides the distance which separates us there is the matter of the language which prevents us from saying all that we have in our hearts - what good fortune that I should have met you and what misfortune not to be able to speak together! I would have such riches in expression with which to express my great love! A love which will be with me all my life - you cannot imagine what an impression you made on me! Your languid eyes which when they looked at me strike my heart as though to seek an echo of an immense affection. I shall never be able to forge you - my Rosa what will happen to me. How can I bear being so far away. Yet it is necessary to suffer and to wait. Life is all one waiting and one suffering! Study, study, I beg you on my knees. Study with ardor and feverishly a little of my language. I believe that guided by the love that you have for me you will soon succeed in understanding me. That day will be one of the most beautiful ones of our life. Write to me even in German. I shall have your letter translated. If with the help of Mrs. S... you wish to write in French I shall not let the eyes of a stranger see your letter. I shall write you every week and even more often than that. How clearly I write! Never have I written in this manner - for you, my joy, I do everything [...]" (transl. from the Italian original).

An exceptionally fine copy in the original glassine wrapper (slightly torn on back but 95% complete) and the original light brown cardboard box with printed label Townsend written in pencil, pasted onto top (corners of box neatly repaired)."Pirates, Buccaneers, Marooners, those cruel but picturesque sea wolves who once infested the Spanish Main, all live in present-day conceptions in great degree as drawn by the pen and pencil of Howard Pyle. Pyle, artist-author, living in the latter half of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth, had the fine faculty of transposing himself into any chosen period of history and making its people flesh and blood again --- not just historical puppets. His characters were sketched with both words and picture; with both words and picture he ranks as a master, with a rich personality which makes his work individual and attractive in either medium… Important and interesting to the student of history, the adventure-lover, and the artist, as they are, these Pirate stories and pictures have been scattered through many magazines and books. Here, in this volume, they are gathered together for the first time, perhaps not just as Mr. Pyle would have done, but with a completeness and appreciation of the real value of the material which the author's modesty might not have permitted." (Merle Johnson, Foreword).Harry Everett Townsend (1879-1941) was a major American painter, print-maker and illustrator. Early in life he displayed his talent for art by earning money as a sign painter for local businessmen. After graduation from high school he went to Chicago to study at the Art Institute. During the summers he serviced farm equipment for the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company and traveled to the American Southwest. Both the Rock Island and Santa Fe Railroads used his scenic paintings for advertising. In 1900 Townsend began to study under Howard Pyle in Wilmington, Delaware, after which he studied briefly in Paris and in London. He returned to Chicago in 1904 to teach for a short time at the Academy of Fine Arts, after which he moved to Leonia, New Jersey, to begin a successful career illustrating magazines such as Harper's, Century, Everybody's, and McClure's as well as a number of books. In 1912 he established a studio in northern France so that he could be close to both Paris and London. The onset of war forced Townsend to return to the United States, where he resumed his work as an illustrator. He began his war service drawing posters before receiving his captain's commission in 1918. Much of Townsend's work during the war focuses on the human element. He produced a number of images showing how the rigors of combat eventually leave little to distinguish between winners and losers in war. After the war Townsend returned to illustrating. His experiences with the AEF, War Diary of a Combat Artist, were published in 1991.BAL, 16416

        Autograph letter signed 'E Rutherford' to Charles Herman Viol, 8 January 1921. Three pages on two sheets.

      Important letter from Rutherford to Charles Herman Viol requesting information about the production of radium, in preparation for a series of lectures he was to deliver at The Royal Institution. "From 1921, when he succeeded [J. J.] Thomson, until his death, Rutherford was professor of natural philosophy at the Royal Institution in London, a post that entailed several lectures each year" (DSB). Rutherford (1871-1937) had moved in 1919 from Manchester to Cambridge, where he was director of the Cavendish Laboratory. There he continued his research on radioactivity, mainly in collaboration with James Chadwick, work which depended on a steady supply of radioactive materials. Since 1913 Viol had been director of research at the US Standard Chemical Company, the first successful large-scale producer of radium, and editor of its in-house journal Radium. He was thus in an excellent position to respond to Rutherford's request. Rutherford letters with significant scientific content are rare on the market.<br/><br/> The letter reads, in full: <br/><br/> <i>Dear Dr Viol<br/><br/> I am giving a course of lectures on Radioactivity at the Royal Institution beginning late in February. I shall be obliged if you can give me any general information with regard to the following: 1. Average Ur plus Th content of the carnotite used for separation of Ra. 2. A rough idea of methods of commercial separation with rough figures of amount of ore, acid, etc. to yield one gram Ra. Probably you have published something along these lines. Possibly you could give me some idea of the annual output of Ra for the world & an estimate of the amount so far separated. <br/><br/> If it is not too much trouble, I should be glad of rough figures of this kind to introduce in one of my lectures. Also I should be glad of any general information re commercial separation that you may have on hand & do not regard as confidential. <br/><br/> I am always interested to receive your publication Radium which I read with interest. <br/><br/> Yours sincerely, <br/><br/> E Rutherford</i><br/><br/> "Viol had been trained as a physicist and had studied under eminent physicists such as Albert Michelson and Robert Millikan at the University of Chicago. His advisor was the chemist Herbert McCoy, known for his study of radioelements. In 1914 Viol had just completed his dissertation on the chemical properties and relative activities of the radio-products of thorium. To a young, promising scientist, the Standard Chemical Company offered the chance to enter a rapidly developing industry and become its pioneer. Viol was among those who improved the method for recovering radium from carnotite ore and foresaw several possible uses for radium salts ... <br/><br/> "<i>Radium</i> was a monthly publication devoted to "the chemistry, physics, and therapeutics of radium and radioactive substances". It was published by the Radium Publishing Company, yet another of the Standard Chemical Company's subsidiaries. The idea of printing a house journal was mainly based on its French counterpart <i>Le Radium</i> (1904)." The Standard Chemical Company's commercial interests in radium were principally its medical applications. Viol intended <i>Radium</i> "to legitimize the Standard Chemical Company within the community of American physicians and use it as a marketing tool for the company's products. His co-editor was William Cameron, a medical doctor who was the ?rst in the United States to report treatment in a patient with breast cancer using massive doses of the material" (Maria Rentetzi, 'The U.S. Radium Industry: Industrial In-house Research and the Commercialization of Science,' <i>Minerva</i> 46 (2008), pp. 437-62). <br/><br/> The Standard Chemical Company reached the apogee of its fame in May 1921, when Marie Curie, the discoverer of radium, visited the United States. One week after her arrival, President Harding presented her with a gift of one gram of the rare element, prepared by Company. It was at her personal request that a visit to the Standard Chemical Company's facilities was included in her busy schedule..

        Travels in Arabia Deserta. With a new Preface by the Author, Introduction by T.E. Lawrence, and all the Original Maps, Plans and Cuts

      London: Jonathan Cape and the Medici Society (Philip Warner), 1921., 1921. FIRST EDITION THUS. 2 volumes, large octavo. With folding colour map in pocket at end of volume I, frontispieces, and numerous maps, plans and illustrations (some folding), pp.(xxvi), 623; (xiv), 690. Bound in original dark green cloth, gilt, with coated black endpapers, top edge gilt. Some minor wear, extremities sunned, cloth a little rubbed, spine tips frayed. Very good indeed. Originally published in 1888 at the Cambridge University Press, this important Cape edition is entirely reset, with a new preface by Doughty and an essay by T.E. Lawrence. During the Great War Lawrence urged the British Government to issue serial parts of this work as a handbook for officers serving in Arabia. Following hostilities he lobbied to republish the whole book. Duckworth and Doubleday declined and eventually Medici employee Herbert J. Cape, who appreciated Doughty's work, took up the challenge and produced this brand new edition of 500 copies, being the first ever book from Jonathan Cape, Publisher, on 15th January 1921, sold at a nosebleed inducing price of nine guineas (about £1000 today). Six large paper copies signed by Doughty and Lawrence were produced, and a quick reprint followed without the Lawrence note, withdrawn by him "because it's in bad taste". HOWARD, Michael: Jonathan Cape, Publisher (1971). Listed in National Geographic's 100 Greatest Adventure books
