        Histoire De Babar, Le Petit Elephant.

      Paris: Jardin des Modes, 1931., 1931. First Edition, First Issue, indicated by lack of elephant to verso of title page. Quarto. Bound in publisher's original black cloth spine, with pictorial boards, showing Babar and titles to front board; Babar patterned endpapers. French language. An amateur restorer has, at some point in the book's history, applied an unsuitable glaze to the front board which has not improved its appearance - the effect of which is reflected in the price. Corners bumped and worn, spine ends frayed, rear board scratched. Light spotting throughout. This is the first appearance of the much-admired elephant king, in which, after having suffered a tragic loss of a kind with Walt Disney's Bambi, Babar comes to learn an appreciation for the values of civilization, and returns to the jungle to bring the light of civilized life to its inhabitants. Upon his return, he discovers that the previous king has died from eating poisoned mushrooms, and is annointed as the new king by virtue of his modern and urban outlook. A somewhat unprepossessing copy of the first edition of this children's classic.

Durant la peste qui frappa la ville de Florence en 1348 et dont l’auteur fût témoin, trois jeunes hommes et sept jeunes femmes se réunissent à l’église Santa María Novella et prennent la décision de s’isoler dans une villa lointaine pour échapper à la peste. Dans ce lieu, pour éviter de repenser aux horreurs qu’ils virent, les jeunes gens se racontent des contes les uns aux autres. Ils restent durant quatorze jours dans la villa mais ne racontent aucune histoire les vendredis et samedis. Le titre vient donc de ces dix journées de contes. Chaque jour, un participant tient le rôle de « roi » et décide du thème des contes. Cependant, le premier et le neuvième jours, cette règle n'est pas appliquée. Au total, l'œuvre se compose de cent récits de longueur inégale. Les sources qu’utilise Boccace sont variées : des classiques gréco-romains aux fabliaux français médiévaux. Jean de La Fontaine s'est largement inspiré de quelques nouvelles du Décaméron de Boccace pour plusieurs de ses Contes et Nouvelles. On y trouve parmi les cent nouvelles : Le pervers évoqué comme un saint - Le mari en pénitence ou le chemin du paradis - La feinte par amour - La femme courageuse - A femme avare, galant escroc - Le curé de Varlogne - La culotte du juge - La trompeuse trompée, etc. L'abondante et spirituelle illustration de Berthommé Saint André colle parfaitement au thème. Des moines, des nonnes, de jolies filles pulpeuses diablesses au service de la perversion cléricale. Tout y est dans un style propre à l'artiste, le tout rehaussé de couleurs délicates.

        Autograph Quotation signed ("Prince Smad"). In French.

      No place, July 1931. - Folio. 1 page. On uncut wove paper, bearing the Schoellers-Parole blind embossed seal, margins uncut. The original autograph contribution of Samad Khan to the Committee of the World League for Peace (Ligue Mondiale pour la Paix), a remarkable organization formed in 1925 with close ties to the League of Nations. The Committee itself was composed of such notaries as Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, King Carol II of Romania, John D Rockefeller, Marie Curie, and Albert Einstein, who personally gathered the present manuscripts over the course of seven years (1925-32). Among the public figures who contributed to the project were numerous dignitaries from the newly-created League of Nations' member states. "War, terrible in all times, has become vain and profitless today, and is equally disastrous for all involved, as even the counquering countries, as well as neutral countries, without exception, can no longer escape the suffering engendered by that calamity! The solidarity between nations has thus become fatally clear. Because of this, peace is no longer simply an ideal, it is becoming a necessity and an obligation. Even the most sceptical among us must finally give pause and reflect. Yet, how rarely are the means we choose to attain this much desired goal the most practical ones! Despite the fact that it is easy to understand that warfare and arms are merely effects, and that it is illogical to wish to avoid them while their causes persist! Can we extinguish an electric light without turning off the switch? Peace can only be seriously envisaged if it is also on a solid base, honest and practical, cemented by the work of the League of Nations, itself equipped with the effective means of intervention! Security for all, men of state and the people, should be the objective, the effect of which will be an inevitable disarmament and sincerity between nations. General fear must make way for a general trust and for faith in the respect of rights and in the future of humanity. Our civilisation owes this to itself, lest it be overcome. [Signed] Prince Smad, former Extraordinary Ambassador to London, former Persian Minister in Holland, and in France, former Premier Delegate of Persia to the Conference in The Hague and the Conference on the Revision of the Geneva Convention, and Permanent Court of Arbitration".

Selon Dutel on trouve cet ouvrage accompagné de différentes suites de gravures, certaines sont de Courbouleix, d'autres sont dans le goût de Carlègle (sont-elles de cet artiste ?), etc. Les catalogues consultés évoquent un tirage probable à 100 exemplaires seulement.

Un valet de pied l'initie alors aux plaisirs inavouables.

"Mes fesses touchaient son ventre, et je sentis tout à coup une petite chose dure qui se pressait contre elles. Je restai immobile, voulant que la nature fut la seule coupable dans cette action, mais j'étais si excitée en sentant sa petite pine dure et raide toucher mon con brûlant par-dessus la chemise que je brûlais du désir de la recevoir. Frédéric souleva sa chemise d'une main timide, craignant de m'offenser, resta quelques minutes sans bouger, puis, voyant que je ne remuais pas, il fit un léger mouvement en avant, qui plaça sa pine entre mes petites lèvres, je levai ma jambe gauche en avançant le derrière, ce qui fit entrer toute la tête de son vit, il fit un nouveau mouvement en avant, et il se trouva enfoncé jusqu'à la racine.

        Méditations Cartésiennes. Introduction a la phénoménologie.

      Paris, 1931. Lex 8vo. Original printed wrappers. Quite worn - and clearly very thorougly read. Spine taped together. Wrappers chipped at edges, just touching inscription at front wrapper. Wrappers loose. Text nice and clean. (2), VII, (1), 136 pp. + 1 f. (blank).. The rare first edition of the main work of transcendental phenomenology, Husserl's highly important "Cartesian Meditations" - which came to profoundly influence French philosophy for decades to come - with a very interesting presentation-inscription for the important philosopher, who is now primarily remembered for introducing the philosophy of Husserl to the English speaking public, "Herrn Prof. Chr. V. Salmon/ mit herzlichen Grüssen/ E Husserl"; Salmon famously translated Husserl's important Encyclopedia Britannica article on Phenomenology and lectured on Husserl in English, spreading his thoughts in the English speaking world - just as Lévinas did in France.This seminal work is based on two two-hour lectures that Husserl gave at the Sorbonne in 1929. Over the next couple of years, Husserl, together with his assistant Eugen Fink, expanded and elaborated upon the text of the lectures and had Lévinas and Gabrielle Peiffer translate them, under the supervision of Alexandre Kyré, Husserl's former student. The work was not published in German in Husserl's lifetime and only appereared in 1950. In 1960 an English translation appeared. The "Cartesian Meditations" constitutes Husserl's introduction to transcendental phenomenology and introduces many of his most important ideas - the transcendental reduction, the epoché, static and genetic phenomenology, eidetic reduction, and eidetic phenomenology. "Having received his M.A. in philosophy at Oxford, Christopher Verney Salmon studied with Husserl in Freiburg during the winter semester of 1922 and again during 1926-1927. In the summer of 1927 Salmon defended the doctoral dissertation that he had written under Husserl's direction, "The Central Problem of Hume's Philosophy: A Phenomenological Interpretation of the First Book of the "Treatise on Human Nature". The was published a year later in Husserl's "Jahrbuch", and Husserl refers to that forthcoming publication in his Bibliography to Draft A of the Article. A year after translating the EB article, Salmon was appointed a lecturer at the University of Belfast, and he continued to present Husserl's philosophy to the English-speaking public. On December 2, 1929 he delivered a lecture to the Aristotelian Society in London, "The Starting-Point of Husserl's Philosophy". Soon after that he helped W.R. Boyce Gibson read the page proofs of Boyce Gibson's translation of Husserl's "Ideas", and in 1932, a year after the work came out in English, Salmon published a review of it. However, contact between Salmon and Husserl fell off after that, and in the spring of 1937 Husserl noted that Professor Salmon had not written to him over the last years. Salmon published a brief article in French on Husserl in 1947. He died in 1960." (Sheehan and Palmer, the Preface to: Edmund Husserl: Psychological and Transcendental Phenomenology and the Confrontation with Heidegger (1927-1931), pp. 62-63)
