        Two autograph letters signed "Meyerbeer" to the noted French librettist Michel Carré regarding Mignon

      - - Berlin, January 6, [18]612 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. In black ink on ivory stationery with Meyerbeer's monogram embossed at head. In French (with translation).Meyerbeer has not yet received the manuscript of Mignon, as he wrote Carré in a previous letter. When he reads the poem, he will tell him whether or not he likes it. Although he would very much like to collaborate with Carré, he has reservations about signing a contract to produce the work next year, at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris.". I believe it is my duty to tell you that, as for me, it is not my habit to sign a contract or to make decisions about a work I have not yet begun. Therefore, since you need to be assured by the theater that a time has been fixed for a performance and since I cannot agree [with this plan], it would therefore be just that I grant you full liberty to dispose of your poem [as you wish], regardless of my great regret at losing your valuable collaboration in the dramatization of this beautiful work of Goethe, about which I have dreamed for so long. " (Translation by Patrick J. Smith.)Lightly creased with multiple tears along folds, slightly affecting text; some staining from two tape repairs to first leaf, somewhat affecting text. In delicate condition, but clearly executed and boldly signed. - Berlin, January 26, [18]61.3 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. In black ink on ivory stationery with Meyerbeer's monogram embossed at head. In French (with translation).The manuscript of Mignon finally arrived about a week ago - along with an unfortunate letter from fellow librettist Jules Barbier. Convinced that Meyerbeer does not like the new adaptation of Mignon, Barbier demands that he return it. Meyerbeer is astonished; Barbier should have learned that he has only just received the work, and has barely had the opportunity to read it, let alone disapprove of it. Nevertheless, he is sending the manuscript tomorrow morning. In fact, Meyerbeer thinks rather highly of the work as a whole.". [Barbier] tells me that he has no doubt that my opinion of the new adaptation of Mignon must be unfavorable, because, according to him, I kept it so long without arriving at a decision. I wanted to let you know, dear M. Carré, of the situation so that you understand that this return [of the manuscript] was demanded of me and that I did not make it of my own accord. There are very felicitious changes in your refashioning; there are, above all, verses of exquisite poetry; on the other hand, there are other changes of which I do not approve and which seem to me unfortunate: a part of my objections is a reflection of my own point of view; but in general, it is a very poetic and very touchinig work, charming in detail throughout, which does you the greatest honor." (Translation by Patrick J. Smith.)Detached at central fold; slightly creased; two small tears to blank lower margin of first page; second leaf laid down to ivory cardboard mount.With original autograph envelope, ca. 55 x 143. Postmarked Berlin and Valenciennes January 26 and 28, [18]64. With Carré's Paris address to recto and four fully intact red wax seals with Meyerbeer's initials to verso. Slightly worn and soiled.Two significant letters from the collection of the noted American writer Patrick J. Smith (b. 1932). When Meyerbeer wrote these letters, he was, "as usual. involved in several projects at once, and one of these was for incidental music to a play of Blaze de Bury, Le Jeunesse de Goethe (1860; 1862). The play was never performed and the music is lost, but Meyebeer set various Goethe texts and scenes, in particular from Faust and [the Mignon episodes from] Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre. Whether this effort was known to [Carré and Barbier,] the librettists of [Meyerbeer's opera] Dinorah, and whether that knowledge had any bearing on [these letters]. is unknown." Patrick J.

        D.H. Lawrence: An Unprofessional Study

      Paris: Edward W. Titus, 1932. First edition of Anaïs Nin's first book, one of 550 copies, "the first book about D.H. Lawrence by a woman." The young Nin's sympathetic reading of Lawrence would inform her own sensational diaries and fiction: "Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death." The year this study appeared in Paris, Nin met the American writer Henry Miller, who became an enthusiastic early reader: "Henry says I write like a man." A near-fine copy, much nicer than usually found. Octavo, original black buckram lettered in gilt, original green typographic dust jacket lettered in black and red. Title page printed in black and red, two facsimile pages from Lawrence's manuscript introduction to Lady Chatterley's Lover reprinted at 76-77. Dust jacket toned, as always, front and back panels still green.

First edition, first printing, with the scarce dust jacket, of this classic book by the founder of the English Folk Cookery Association. Born in 1863, White's somewhat unhappy childhood, shopping "economically for food (since the family was by then poor), waiting on her uncongenial stepmother, and teaching the three small children of her father's third marriage" (ODNB), was relieved when she was sent to Fareham "to nurse her father's two elderly sisters, formerly proprietors of the Lion Hotel and Assembly Rooms. From them, as she later described in her autobiography, she learned that 'good epicurean country-house cookery which had been handed down the family from mother to daughter since the days of Queen Elizabeth'. Her return to Fareham towards the end of her life, when she opened a cookery school there, was directly inspired by her memories of learning traditional English cooking techniques, an accomplishment of which she never ceased to be proud". Only when in her sixties "living in frugal semi-retirement in a Chelsea basement room" supported by freelance journalism, did Florence formally begin to research her lifelong passion, good, traditional English food. In 1928 she founded the English Folk Cookery Association, and in 1932 published Good Things in England, her manifesto, as well as editing the first of the association's Good Food Registers, which contained information passed on by contributors about towns, villages, hotels, restaurants, or even humble guest houses in which good English cooking or foodstuffs could be found. The book contains regional specialities as well as numerous traditional favourites, encompassing recipes from the England of Chaucer's time right up to the modern day. A couple of pages of pencilled notes loosely inserted, together with a contemporary clipped review from an unidentified source which concludes that Good Things in England is in "itself undoubtedly a Good Thing".

Most - end of 1920s - 1930s. Some files contain of 20 documents other 30 or 50 ,the most interesting are the extracts from minutes of Party commissions. here are translations from extracts from similar files that may or may not be included in this archive: 1. The District Party Commission ascertained that Kopachev: 1. Kept connection with Poland till 1932; received letters and cuttings from newspapers about USSR and also the ""Selrod"" march; as he stated kept correspondence with his familiars who lived in Poland; 2. He concealed from the Party Organization that his two uncles and wife's father were convicted, one uncle dispossessed. It is ascertained by the Red Army Political Administration Kopachev till 1932 had a letter connection with his familiar Stefanovich who lived in Poland and he did not conceal about it. He concealed that his two uncles were repressed in 1929. The Political Commission of the Red Army Political Administration by its decision from 25.3.1938 restored Kopachev as a Party member. The Party Commission told off Kopachev a severe reprimand and warning for relaxing his vigilance and incomplete interpretation in autobiography in the interrogatory of his relatives.

At his words he escaped to the Red Army during the retreat of Wrangel but the Commission ascertained he did not escape from the captivity. During his way he entered a Makhno detachment from which he went over to the 5th Latvian Regiment. On Dec. 1921 he was directed to Chuguev school and joined the Party at the same year but was excluded from there for accomplishment a religious rite (wedding) ...Questions: It is incomprehensible why did Merezhko escaped from the White Army being a teacher there. He must has escaped as they were pressed to the Black Sea ...The opinion of the Chief of the Commission: going over from Wrangel to the Red Army was forced. The White Army retreated and he had nowhere to go"". Speaked: - 13 persons expressed their negative opinions about him. One of them, for example:""No 9. It is evident the Merezhko relatives are not port workers. Merezhko is a careerist. He was fixed up to study all his life. He studied at the White Army too. He took a wife - a gymnasia pupil and got married in church on her wish. He was excluded from the Party because of that. Joined the Party for second time just because the Commissar told him: ""You must be in the Party"". Such a ""communist"" must have no place in the Party"". ...

        Profile: An Anthology Collected in MCMXXXI

      Milan: John Scheiwiller, 1932. First Edition. An enormously important poetry anthology, one of only 250 copies, featuring many of the key Modernist writers of the period, including James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, W.B. Yeats, Marianne Moore, T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings, Archibald MacLeish, Louis Zukofsky, Basil Bunting, Ford Madox Ford, and many others, with two groups of poems from the radical magazine, "New Masses." Ezra Pound, the editor of this collection, appears quite often. 8vo., 142 pages, in original green wrappers folded over stiff white blanks. A trace of foxing to the top edge and some light creasing of the wrappers, but a Near Fine copy. OCLC lists 6 copies, all in U.S. libraries. No other copies in the market as of February 2016. Gallup B28. RARE. Throughout this volume, Ezra Pound adds his personal comments about some of the poets and their works. He doesn't include any poems by Robert Frost, but instead makes this acid comment about Frost: "As a matter of history it should be stated that from 1912 Robert Frost had been producing New England Eclogues. Sincere, very dull, without tragedy, without emotion, without metrical interest, a faithful record of life without intellectual interest or any desire for anything not in it. The work, inferior to [George] Crabbe, but infinitely better than fake. A great deal of New England life is presumably as Frost records it. It is difficult to see how such life differs greatly from that of horses and sheep." (Page 46)
