CTENIPRO BIBLIOFILY [exemplaire portant le n°69 à la plume] Traduction approximative : [Page de titre] : OCTAVE UZANNE FANTÔME DANS LES LIVRES PETITES HISTOIRES POUR LES BIBLIOPHILES choisies et traduites par Miloslav Novotny à Prague 1930 [Colophon] : FANTÔMES DANS LES LIVRES Publiés dans les Contes pour les Bibliophiles d'Octave Uzanne. Traduits par Miloslav Novotny, illustrés par Jan Konupek. Imprimé et publié par Jaroslav Picka à Prague en 1933 à 75 exemplaires (26e volume). Lecture pour bibliophiles. 1 volume in-8 (21,5 x 13 cm), en feuilles, sous couverture à rabats de papier fort marron marbré, avec auteur et titre imprimé en noir au dos en long et marque de l'imprimeur-éditeur sur le premier plat imprimée en noir, 69-(1)-(1) pages. 7 bois gravés pleine page par Jan Konupek (compris dans la pagination). La page de titre indique la date 1930 tandis que le colophon indique celle de 1933 (date d'achevé d'imprimer sans doute). Ce précieux petit volume, imprimé en 1933, soit deux ans après le décès d'Octave Uzanne (peut-être commencé dès 1930 ... avec le consentement probable d'Octave Uzanne ??), est imprimé sur beau papier vélin crème filigrané HOLLAND (vélin de Hollande sans doute fait main). Il contient les contes suivants : Une vente de livres à l'Hotel Drouot (Ma bibliothèque aux Enchères) [DRAZBA KNIH V HOTELU DROUOTOVE (Ma knihovna v drazbe)], conte initialement paru dans les Caprices d'un bibliophile en 1878 ; Un ex libris mal placé (Histoire d'hier) [O EXLIBRIS, JEZ SE OCTLO NA NEPRAVEM MISTE (Pribeh ze vcerejska], conte initialement paru dans les Caprices d'un bibliophile en 1878 ; et enfin L'Héritage Sigismond, luttes homériques d'un vrai bibliofol [DEDICTVI PO SIGISMONDOVI (Homerské boje opravdového bibliofila), conte initialement paru dans les Contes pour les bibliophiles en 1895. Ce sont donc 3 contes anciennement publiés par Octave Uzanne qui sont repris ici en 1933 pour cette édition bibliophilique en langue tchèque, ornée d'étonnantes gravures sur bois par Jan Konupek. Jan Konupek est né le 10 octobre 1883 à Mladá Boleslav et est mort le 13 mars 1950 à Prague. Sa renommée de peintre, illustrateur et graveur est internationale. Son intense activité artistique Moderne Art pendant l'entre deux guerres en fait une figure majeure de l'art tchèque. On lui doit également de nombreux ex libris gravés à l'eau-forte, notamment. L'illustration tourmentée que Jan Konupek donne ici pour ces trois contes pour les bibliophiles d'Octave Uzanne sont magistrales et méritent d'être mises en valeur. Nous reproduisons donc au cours de cet article l'intégralité des 7 bois gravés.

        A Roving Commission

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1930. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Churchill's extremely popular autobiography covers the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. This is an unusually clean, bright, jacketed U.S. first edition first printing. Published in England as My Early Life, this is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. Interestingly, A Roving Commission was the title proposed by Churchill himself and favored by his American publisher. One can hardly ask for more adventurous content. These were momentous and formative years for Churchill, including his time as a war correspondent and cavalry officer in theatres as varied as Cuba, northwest India, and sub-Saharan and southern Africa. This time contained a wide range of experiences in Churchill?s life. Not only was he developing as an author, publishing his first books, and making his first lecture tour of North America, but this was also the time of his capture and daring escape during the Boer War, which made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill would take his seat in Parliament only weeks after the end of Queen Victoria's reign. A Roving Commission remains one of the most popular and widely read of all Churchill's books. And for good reason, as the work certainly ranks among the most charming and accessible of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more recent writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps unduly lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. The book sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions, both British and U.S. Jacketed copies of the U.S. first edition are scarce. Even decent unjacketed copies are unusual. The red-orange cloth binding proved highly susceptible to fading and soiling and the fragile dust jacket proved highly vulnerable to wear and severe fading of the orange color, particularly on the jacket spine. Here is an especially fine copy in a very good plus first printing dust jacket. The red-orange binding retains vivid, entirely unfaded color and bright gilt. Notably, the spine is beautifully bright with no color shift save perhaps a hint at the base of the spine corresponding to short closed tears. The coarse cloth binding is tight, square, and remarkably clean with virtually no wear or soiling, sharp corners, and bright gilt. The contents are beautifully bright with only a hint of age-toning to the page edges. We find absolutely no spotting. Even the top and untrimmed fore edges are clean, with just a small amount of staining to the bottom edge. The sole previous ownership mark is a tiny Boston bookseller's sticker affixed to the lower left of the front free endpaper. The Scribner's "A" on the copyright page confirms a first edition, first printing. The dust jacket is unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 front flap price. The jacket is also unusually clean and complete, for the edition, with only light soiling to the white portions of the spine and rear face. Spine presentation is quite good for the edition; the orange spine panel, typically faded to near-white, here retains respectable color and the only loss is fractional chipping to a maximum .125 inch depth at the spine head. We note light scuffing to the bright front face, and minor wear to the front hinge and extremities. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        GRAND 1930 TRIUMPHAL TOUR. THE GREAT SCENIC STAGE PLAY PRODUCTION OF JESSE JAMES. THE MOST AMAZING STORY OF DARING AND THRILLING ADVENTURE EVER PRODUCED ON THE STAGE. THIS IS NOT A MOVING PICTURE BUT A 4 ACT STAGE PLAY WITH VAUDEVILLE SPECIALTIES BETWEEN EACH ACT.

      Erie, Pa.: Erie Litho. & Ptg. Co., []. 1930 - Broadsheet, 28 x 10 1/2 inches, printed on light orange paper and featuring five large illustrations of scenes from the production. Very light edgewear. Near fine. An excellent broadsheet advertising a touring 1930 stage production of the life and exploits of the legendary outlaw, Jesse James. This production was mounted as the Great Depression was deepening, and the treatment of James in the text anticipates the public's fascination with depression-era ou1tlaws like John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, Ma Barker, and "Baby Face Nelson." James is called "the most interesting character American history has furnished" and it is noted that "thousands of people.were in sympathy with [the James brothers]and followed their sensational career with the utmost interest." Parents are assured that they can safely bring their children to the performance: "it will not corrupt the mind of the young. On the contrary it teaches a great moral lesson." The illustrations depict thrilling scenes from the play, including a bank robbery, a prison break, and Jesse's murder by "the traitor" Robert Ford. This broadsheet was meant to advertise whatever local performance was being undertaken, and the name and place of the venue has been left unaccomplished on this copy.

        "Napoléon à Sainte-Hélène"

      1930Paris, Delagrave, Imprimerie Dupuy, (1930), lithographie signée en bas à droite dans la planche, 85 x 105 cm., format de la feuille, format à vue 76.5 x 96.5 cm. Cette affiche éducative scolaire, la dixième sur douze, fut éditée par Delagrave pour la série "Notre Histoire". Elle représente Napoléon, le visage renfrogné, debout sur un éperon rocheux de l'île de Sainte-Hélène, face à l'immensité de l'Océan Atlantique. Des gardes anglais, légèrement en retrait, surveillent ses faits et gestes. Dans le ciel des nuages prennent des formes synthétisant des évènements importants de la vie de Napoléon : "L'aigle" emblème choisi par Napoléon pour symboliser la puissance du nouveau régime ; le deuxième nuage illustre le tableau de Robert Lefèvre "Napoléon Ier Empereur des Français" et symbolise son ascension de consul à Empereur ; le troisième nuage fait référence à la célèbre peinture de David "Bonaparte au Grand Saint-Bernard" illustrant le passage des Alpes par Bonaparte ; le quatrième et dernier nuage symbolise la conquête napoléonienne. Ces affiches éducatives servaient à enseigner "par les yeux" les principaux faits historiques. L'affiche de JOB reflète la fierté patriotique dans le but de développer le sentiment national de nos futurs héros et montre à travers ses actes de bravoure, le sens du devoir et de la patrie de Bonaparte, la voie du courage et de la victoire... JOB, acronyme de son nom et de son prénom (1858-1931), élève du peintre Carolus Duran illustra plus de 85 albums dont (Murat, Le Grand Napoléon des petits enfants, Jouons à l'histoire, Louis XI, Napoléon, Bonaparte et Les Gourmandises de Charlotte), collabora à de nombreuses revues et journaux, créa des costumes pour le théâtre et le cinéma, des cartes à jouer, des jouets... Il est attaché à peindre les valeurs d'une époque. Ancien militaire il garde une fascination certaine pour tout ce qui a trait au militaria et en particulier pour l'uniforme.

        Photographs - Pakistan - Bridge Building in Khajuri Plains

      Pakistan, 1930. Jane Evelyn Jane Fairfax was born in 1880 at Warter, Yorkshire, England, the daughter of Charles Henry Wilson, 1st Baron Nunburnholme, and Florence Jane Helen Wellesley. Jane's father held the office of Member of Parliament (Liberal M.P.) for Kingston-upon-Hull between 1874 and 1885, and then between 1885 and 1905. He was also Justice of the Peace (J.P.) and Deputy Lieutenant (D.L.) for the East Riding of Yorkshire. He was created 1st Baron Nunburnholme, of the City of Kingston upon Hull on 16 January 1906. She was married on 6 July 1899 at St. George Hanover Square, London, England. Her husband, Guy Thomas Fairfax (1870-1934) was born at Nunappleton on 3 April 1870, the son of Lt.-Col. Thomas-Ferdinand Fairfax of the Grenadier Guards (1839-1884), and the grandson of Thomas Fairfax of Steeton and Newton Kyme, York, JP and DL (1804-1875). They descent from the lineage of Rear Admiral Robert Fairfax 1665/66-1725), former MP and Lord Mayor of York, who resided at the original Manor House at Bilbrough built in 1670 for him and which was destroyed by a fire in 1832. The admiral's grandfather was Sir William Fairfax (1609-1644), an officer in the Parliamentary army during the English Civil War, and knighted by Charles I. Joan and Guy are known to have had one child, Gavin Thomas Fairfax, who was born in 1902 at Bilbrough, Yorkshire, England, and whom became a practising solicitor. Joan's diary, however, reveals that they had another child, perhaps born in 1900, as Joan is taking care of 'Baby' throughout the volume. Also in 1902, construction of their expansive residence, Bilbrough Manor, was completed. Situated on the same Fairfax property as Rear Admiral Robert Fairfax had his manor built three centuries earlier. Bilbrough Manor, which was built in 1901-1902 for Guy Thomas Fairfax (and his wife Joan), is now a Grade II listed building. Described as a two storey Country House, it is made of brick with rough cast render and ashlar dressings, plain tile roofs and 13 chimney stacks. The east front has a central round headed niche with stone seat and a raised step. The north entrance front has a 4 gabled front with a 2 storey porch and an arched opening with the coat of arms to the Fairfax family. The interior retains many original features, including panelling, fireplaces, and the staircase with square newels and turned balusters. The present house was rebuilt on the site of a decaying Elizabethan mansion. Some details from the original house, principally the coats of arms, were incorporated in the present house. The most prominent belongs to the Fairfax family who have been associated with Bilbrough since 1556. The most famous of the family was the 3rd Lord, "Black Tom" Fairfax who created the Parliamentarian new Model Army and was in command when it defeated Charles 1. Later however he opposed Cromwell's worst excesses and was instrumental in the restoration to the throne of Charles II. In 1997 Bilbrough Manor was separated into three houses, and the principal part with most of the land was quite recently sold for well over £1,250,000. The village of Bilbrough and the surrounding Parish has an area of 1,390 acres and was in fact mostly the property of the Fairfax family from the 14th century onwards. Thomas Fairfax, parliamentary commander-in-chief during the English Civil War, is buried in a tomb inside the Fairfax Chapel within the village church, beside his wife Anne, daughter of Lord Vere, Baron of Tilbury. Contemporary to the Afridi Rebellion and the Red Shirt Rebellion (1930-1931), the present volume of original photographs provides a rare visual chronicle of a notable undertaking by the Royal Engineers (RE), developing bridges and water supply in a geographically and politically hostile region then known as the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) of colonial British India, the objective being permanent occupation of the Khajuri Plain. This photographic work features firsthand snapshot views of the Bara Bridge under construction, as well as views of Bara camp, and the Bara River reservoir, this project being captured in 34 views. Also being erected for "defenses" according to the photographer's caption, three views show pillboxes (dug-in guard posts with firing holes) being built at both ends of the Mazarai [Mazaraipal] Bridge. [The 'Inglis' patterned Bara Bridge in the Peshawar District, North West Frontier, was constructed across the Bara River in 1930 by No. 4 Field Company, King George's Own Bengal Sappers and Miners. It was named after its inventor, Lieutenant later Professor Sir, Charles Inglis (1875-1952). The specifications required that it be capable of carrying infantry in fours or 10-ton steam rollers, one at a time. Work began on 29 October 1930 and the bridge was open for traffic on 23 November. From the era of the Raj, the town of Bara, located in Bara Tehsil in Khyber Agency, has also held a fort, and supplied water to Peshawar.] Three brigade size camps were established during the North West Frontier operations of 1930-1931, at Bara Fort, Karawal and Mirikhel, all of which are represented here. Devising methods for water supply for military camp settlements was, needless to say, an imperative endeavour. The arduous and innovative undertakings are well illustrated here, showing man-made reservoirs and immense steel holding tanks, pipe being laid across arid terrain, manual transportation of water, temporary dams, and finally, pumping station sites being selected and equipment erected. The men had a scant few lorries at their disposal, as well as horse-drawn carts to do the job. The photographs show the means of obtaining and preserving water for Karawal Camp situated at the base of Karawal Hill, Matannai Camp [near Mattani village], Jula Talao Camp, Narai Khwar Camp most likely situated along the stream by the same name, and Miri Khel Camp at the Bara River gorge. Miri Khel being an important camp, 14 photographs show works being performed here, mainly for water supply and usage. These vivid images show the installation of a boiler at the pumping station, a tank reservoir being assembled, laying the main pipe, the completed water point and bath house, as well as a simple footbridge and cliffside protected paths in the area. Other views include the Ilm Gudr pumping station and its victaulic pipe line leading to Karawal, a military post at Shamghakhai, the Mazarai Post (captioned with dates in Jamuary 1930), a "piquet", or small a small temporary military post closer to the enemy than the main formation, being erected at Karawal Camp (also captioned with dates in January 1930), simple rock walls serving as defense and boundaries, wooden tent frames and chappars (thatched or netted roofs) being made at Fort Salop and Star River Camp, rugged frontier roads, mule tracks, and mountain passes. [After the second Afghan War (1878-1880), the British had occupied the whole Khyber Pass and established a piquet system to safeguard their passage through it. Fort Salop was named after the King's Shropshire Light Infantry.] These photographs are contemporary to the Red Shirt and Afridi Rebellions on the North-West Frontier of India, which took place between 23 April 1930 and 22 March 1931. Photographs show some construction for battle strategy and defense; and a few of the captions make reference to the 'enemy'. While the Afridi uprising was a traditional Frontier tribal revolt, the Red Shirt Rebellion was essentially political in nature, inspired by the Indian Independence movement unfolding in the rest of British India. As such, it was a first for the Frontier region. During the North West Frontier operations of 1930-1931, Major-General Sir Coleridge commanded the Peshawar District including Bara Fort. [General Sir John Francis Stanhope Duke Coleridge, GCB CMG DSO (1878-1951), a senior British Indian Army officer, went on to be Military Secretary to the India Office.] The caption to one of the two loose photographs sums up the state of Indo-Anglo relations in the province, and the Royal Engineers' objectives at the time, "... a view of the 2nd Indian Infantry Brigade Camp at Karawal, on the Khajurai Plain... four miles from the river, therefore the Sappers & Miners had to put a pipe line in to supply the camp. The open trench can be seen... a group of canvas tanks containing drinking water. At the foot of the hill in the background are the enemies caves, not visible of course." The Corps of Royal Engineers, usually just called the Royal Engineers (RE), and commonly known as the Sappers, is one of the corps of the British Army. It is highly regarded throughout the military, and especially the Army. Much of the British colonial era infrastructure of India, of which elements survive today, was created by engineers of the three presidencies' armies and the Royal Engineers. The British army arrived in Peshawar in 1849 and ended Sikh rule in the area between the Suleiman Mountains and the Indus. The British annexed Peshawar and other frontier districts as part of the newly annexed province of the Punjab and thus the expansion of the British power over the vast areas of Sub-Continent came close to Khyber. The British first came into contact with Khyber Pass during the first Afghan War when one unit of their army advanced on Afghanistan by this route. After the second Afghan War (1878-80), the British occupied the whole Pass and established a piquet system to safeguard passage through it. The Khyber valley saw a great deal of fighting during the second Afghan War in 1878. The Afridis seized the Pass in 1897 and there was a general uprising of Khyber tribes against the British. The British then organized the Tirah Expedition to subdue the tribe and bring them firmly under their control. It was after this campaign that the famous Khyber Rifles were organized. During the third Afghan war (1919), Khyber valley again witnessed a good deal of fighting. According to the British, it was here that they met their equal, men who fought against them until the last day of their rule. The Pashtun tribes were never completely subjugated and were treated with respect and allowed considerable independence in the internal affairs of the tribes. The Khajuri Plain is a vast tract of country starting from Bara Fort up to Karawal in the West, at the foot of the Tirah hills. The Plain is roughly bounded by Jamrud, Kacha Garhi and Besai ridges in the north, Spina Thana (Airnal Chabutra) on Peshawar-Kohat Road in the south, Sheikhan and Bara Fort in the east and Karawal and Ghund Ghar in the west. In 1861, the Afridi clans agreed to share joint responsibility with the British, in maintaining order in the area. However, in the following years, many battles were fought and many agreements made between the two, as the British sought to dominate the area. Between 1849 and 1947 the military history of the Frontier consisted of a succession of punitive expeditions against offending Pashtun (or Pathan) tribes, punctuated by three wars against Afghanistan. In April 1930, the British army opened fire on the 'Red Shirts' in Qissa Khawani Bazaar, Peshawar. Many fell martyred. In May 1930 another conflict began for the control of Peshawar. General Coleridge launched occupation operations in full earnest for the occupation of the Khajuri Plain, constructing roads and establishing of permanent military posts at Fort Salop and other places. The incessant fighting for decades stirred Mahatma Gandhi to take up the Khajuri Plain issue during his talks with Lord Irwin. During the North West Frontier operations of 1930-1931, three brigade size camps were established at Bara Fort, Karawal and Mirikhel. The area was sparsely populated due to the lack of water, apart from the British troops who occupied most of the Khajuri Plain in the 1930s. Marking the limit of the Sikh and British controlled areas, Bara Fort sat on the eastern fringe of the Khajuri Plain. The occupation of Khajuri by the British took a permanent shape and it continued to exist till the partition in 1947. As a whole, the plain would remain barren until the 1970s when a large irrigation project changed the area to open commerce. An Indian General Service Medal, 'North West Frontier Campaign 1930-31' was issued to British forces who were involved in the suppression of a rising among the Afridi tribes beyond the border in 1930, and in that of the so-called Red Shirt Rebellion, after the occupation of Khajuri Plain. . Very Good.

        May Belfort. Exposition.

      TOULOUSE-LAUTREC ( Henri de)Ca 1930. (880 x 675 mm). Affiche en couleurs. Défauts, usures dans les marges. May Belfort, de son vrai nom May Egan, chanteuse irlandaise, amie de May Milton, arriva à Paris via le Music Hall de Londres et se produisit au Café-concert des Décadents. Toulouse-Lautrec eut une vraie fascination pour elle, la représenta dans plusieurs de ses lithographies et peintures le plus souvent sur scène, comme sur cette affiche qui la montre chantant un succès "Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow", portant des habits de petite fille, un petit chat noir dans les bras. De santé fragile, elle se retira de la scène après une brève apparition au Petit Casino, pour laquelle elle avait commandé cette affiche. // Poster in colors. (880 x 675 mm). Defects, margins used. May Belfort, her real name is May Egan, Irish singer, friend of May Milton, came toParis via the London music halls and performed at the Décadents Café-concert. Toulouse-Lautrec became truly fascinated with her, depicting her in several of his lithographs and paintings, usually performing her act, as she is shown on this poster, singing a favorite song, "Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow", dressed like a little girl, a black kitten in her arms. Due to ill health, she retired from the stage after a brief appearance at the Petit Casino, for which she had commissioned this poster.

        Les demi-vierges. Edition Définitive avec 16 illustrations de Gaston Fédit Gravées par Paul Baudier.

      Paris, Hachette, 1930. in-8, 2ff.-IIIpp.-270pp.-2ff.- gravures en noir en vignettes et à pleines pages. Reliure Art-déco estampée "Reliure Jotau - breveté S.G.D.G." dans la marge inférieure du second plat. Plats de bakélite (résine thermo-durcissable) teintée bordeaux dans la masse, bords biseautés, montés sur gonds ; premier plat orné d'une frise métallique portant un décor floral et le titre en cartouche, filets horizontaux moulés, petite plaque de titre argentée au dos, tête or, doublures et gardes de papier peint, premier plat de couverture conservé. (Jotau, pour l'éditeur). (Collection Les grands Écrivains). Intéressant essai de reliure industrielle propre aux recherches technologiques et artistiques art-déco des années 20. Le procédé fut mis au point et breveté par Joseph Taupin (qui signa la reliure "Jotau") dans les ateliers de cartonnages et reliures Brodart et Taupin. Le grand relieur Pierre-Lucien Martin aurait participé au projet. D'une mise en œuvre mécanique, voire industrielle, mais conservant des qualités esthétique et artistique, la reliure moulée selon le procédé "Jotau" est réalisée en "Pollopas", matière plastique proche de la galatite et des laques, mise au point par Kulhmann. Un coût de fabrication élevé mit fin à la production de ces étonnantes reliures, inspirées pourtant des doctrines de rationalisation et de gestion américaines. Jérôme Doucet in La Reliure, 1933, a consacré un article très technique à ce judicieux système où les plats sont quasiment indépendants du corps de l'ouvrage (charnières de type "piano"), facilitant ainsi la manipulation. Jean de Gonet a repris cette solution avec le "Rim", voici quelques années. - Exemplaire très frais, reliure intacte, à noter seulement de légers frottements visibles par miroitement, et l'ouverture du 2° plat freinée.

        Due lettere dattiloscritte con firma autografa dello scrittore e giornalista, membro della resistenza polacca durante l'occupazione nazista, entrambe dirette a Giampaolo Dossena (1930 _ 2009) giornalista e storico cremonese, all'epoca direttore della casa editrice Rizzoli. A. Napoli 10 marzo 1963. Relativamente alla possibilità di pubblicare alcune sue opere presso la Rizzoli. ìSono felice che le sia piaciuto il mio libro. Ed ancora più, che esista la possibilità di ristamparlo presso Rizzoli. Si ricordi che andrebbe un' riveduto, per quanto riguarda la traduzione (fatta, a suo tempo, troppo in fretta). E che vorrei aggiungervi, a modo di postilla, il mio saggio Jegor e Ivan Denisovic' pubblicato su Tempo presente (gennaio). Chiss_ poi se non sarebbe indicato di usare sia la prefazione di Russell nell'edizione inglese, che quella di Silone all'edizione italiana. Mi fa anche piacere che per il Kott che cose si mettano bene. Nel prossimo numero di Tempo Presente (marzo-aprile) uscir_ il capitolo su Hamlet coll'annunzio che il volume sar_ pubblicato da voi. Per lanciare il li libro varrebbe anche la pena di mettere in vista il fatto che la nuova messa in scena del King Lear' a Londra (di Peter Brook) si basa principalmente sull'interpretazione che della tragedia ha dato Kott". Due pagine in-4, segni a penna rossa. B. Napoli 2 giugno 1964. Comunica all'amico che intende dimettersi dall'incarico presso la Rizzoli. ìLe cose, da voi, sono talmente precipitate dal 14 aprile, che non è più il caso di tentare un tamponamento. Dimessosi Meana, ritiratosi lei in un mezzo aventino', non vedo quale decisione possa prendere io tranne quella di seguirvi. In tutti questi anni il mio lavoro era impostato sulla stretta collaborazione con voi due: con grande piacere per me, con un certo profitto, almeno così spero, per la casa editrice. Scomparsi, o quasi, nel suo caso, voi due, mi sento inutile". Una pagina in-4.

Exemplaires brochés non coupés tel que parus. Quelques rares rousseurs. Proust n'ayant jamais tenu de journal, ses lettres constituent le document le plus important qui subsiste sur sa vie et sa carrière d'écrivain. Elles permettent de suivre le développement de son oeuvre littéraire et d'en repérer les sources d'inspiration dans la réalité. Par la diversité et le nombre de ses destinataires, la correspondance de Proust est aussi une merveilleuse source documentaire sur la société parisienne et la culture française au tournant du siècle. Entre autres sujets d'actualité, on y trouve évoqués l'affaire Dreyfus, le procès d'Oscar Wilde, la séparation de l'Eglise et de l'Etat, la première guerre mondiale, Wagner, les Ballets russes, le mouvement Dada, la théorie de la relativité.
