        Autograph Letter, Signed, on Harvard Law School Letterhead. Framed.

      1935. Frankfurter ALS With Interesting Content Concerning Judges Frankfurter, Felix [1882-1965]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, On Harvard Law School Letterhead, Signed F.F. and Dated Sept. 19] c.1935. Three-page letter on three 5" x 8" sheets and 5"x 7" portrait photograph of Frankfurter in judicial attire in attractively matted and glazed 28" x 14" frame. $1,250. * In this interesting letter to an unidentified recipient Frankfurter shares his thoughts on the judicial system and elected judges. "I agree with you altogether that the quality of our judges is fundamental to the quality of our judicial output and I also agree that the method & selection, the tenure & termination of office are most important. Of course I am all against short election terms and recall of judges. My own inclination is strongly, on the whole, for an appointive judiciary particularly with, possibly, an elected C.J. as the administrative head of the whole judicial system..." Frankfurter was a professor at Harvard Law School from 1914 to 1939.

        Princess Hildegarde (SIGNED)

      Row, Peterson and Company, Evanston, Illinois 1935 - Book will close its boards and text block. Interior unmarked, square and tight. Fraying one inch to top of rear board. Boards are pumpkin cloth illustrated in black. Vertical strips of material which we take to be white library tape run along inside edges of boards at hinges; this material has been tucked UNDER the endpapers; we thus conclude this is a "reinforced library binding", as made. No date later than 1935 copyright, below which appears the cryptic numeral "996." Dated December 1944, inscribed & signed "Sidney Baldwin" to title page. Only visible flaw is the usual small dark stain which is becoming a pinhole along rear of spine. Under magnification, this appears to be caused by the rusting of an interior staple (as in other copies found), though book shows NO sign of ever having been damp. A clipping of the author's column from a March, 1951 edition of The Peoria Star laid in. A lovely copy. By the author of "Young Prince Hubert." 304 pp. Reduced from $1,050.

        The Petrified Forest

      Scribners 1935 - A very good first edition in a very good dust jacket, signed by all of the cast members in the play (literally, more than 20 signatures), including a young and unknown Humphrey Bogart who created the classic role of Duke Mantee, as well as the famous lead in the play, Leslie Howard. Scribner's A on the copyright page and 1935 on the title page. At Howard's insistance, Bogart was hired for the movie version, which launched his career as a "tough guy" movie star, perhaps the greatest male movie star in the history of Hollywood. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Green Hills of Africa.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Some of the usual fading to the cloth extremities, near fine in a very good dust jacket. A nicer example than usually found. Green Hills of Africa was published in 1935, but initially appeared in Scribners Magazine the same year (Meyers, 1985). The first edition explains that Hemingway "attempted to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month's action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." The author's intentions were quickly confirmed when the first print-run sold a popular 10,500 copies, and it was aptly praised by The New York Times as "[a] fine book on death in the African afternoon...The writing is the thing; that way he has of getting down with beautiful precision the exact way things look, smell, taste, feel, sound." Not unlike Hemingway's virtuosic abilities, Green Hills of Africa also offers the writer's opinions on the value of his contemporaries: "The good American writers are Henry James, Stephen Crane, and Mark Twain Henry James wanted to make money. He never did, of course." Hemingway adds that most American writers are inadequate and "came to a bad end" The value of Green Hills of Africa, therefore, is three-fold. It serves as masterly written entertainment, a successful social experiment that tested the receptivity of the American public, and an insight into the author's literary evaluation. The Observer is correct when it wrote, "If he were never to write again, his name would live as long as the English language, for Green Hills of Africa takes its place beside his other works on that small shelf in our libraries which we reserve for the classics."

        Mediterranean Vacation Photograph Album with Snapshots of Walt and Lillian Disney Carrying a Mickey Mouse Doll

      Primarily Italy, 1935. Photograph Album. Very Good. The hardcover album is 6" x 9" and filled with over 100 uncaptioned 2.5" square photographs. Four colorful tourist labels for Florence, Naples, Capri, and Lake Como are affixed to the front cover. Photographs include shipboard swimming, tennis, dining, relaxing, etc. Other photographs are of Capri, Pompeii, Malta, the Amalfi Coast, and other Mediterranean tourist sites. Of special note are three rare snapshots of Walt and Lillian Disney onboard a passenger ship. In two of the photos, Walt and Lillian are carrying a large Mickey Mouse doll. In the third, Walt appears to be discussing business with two other men, one of whom is holding a Mickey doll; Lillian is barely visible along the right margin, also holding a Mickey Mouse doll. Walt and Lillian, along with Roy and his wife Edna, had taken an extended European vacation to relieve the strain caused by problems encountered in the development of Snow White. After six weeks, they boarded the Italian steamship, S.S. Rex, on 24 July for their return trip home. The trip rejuvenated Walt and Roy, and both eagerly and energetically returned to the studio. In addition to providing the impetus needed to finish Snow White, the European trip had another lasting effect. Walt had purchased over 300 books while on the trip and later wrote in a memo, "Some of those little books which I brought back with me from Europe have very fascinating illustrations of little peoples, bees, and small insects who live in mushrooms, pumpkins, etc. This quaint atmosphere fascinates me." Apparently, it also resulted in such little characters becoming a staple in his films. (see Disney's Grand Tour by Didier Ghez) Apparently the compiler of this scrapbook was on the same voyage to New York and snapped these shots. (A publicity photograph in the Disney collection shows Walt and Lillian in the same clothes and carrying the same Mickey doll while strolling on the deck of the Rex, copy included) There is one other more candid snapshot of Walt Disney in a discussion with two other men.

      Washington. 1935.. [2],xviii,418,[2],419-542pp. Illus. Original cloth. Fine. In a cloth slipcase. One of the great rarities of Western Americana printed in the 20th century, issued in a small edition by an obscure Washington publisher in the midst of the Depression. Carter's book is one of the primary sources for the Indian wars on the South Plains. "This is one of the best sources on the Federal cavalry campaigns against the Indians in the 1870's" - Jenkins. "The most complete account of the Indian wars on the Texas frontier in the Seventies" - Jeff Dykes. After serving in the ranks in the Civil War and graduating from West Point in 1870, Carter was stationed at Fort Concho. He spent the next five years in the midst of some of the most ferocious Indian fighting in the West until a wound forced him to retire in 1876. His commanding officer, Gen. Ranald Mackenzie, was one of the legendary cavalry commanders of the time. Carter's stories, told in an outspoken narrative, are extraordinarily interesting, despite his somewhat hackneyed style and large basket of prejudices, which are distributed freely over the narrative (he was especially bitter about his treatment by the War Office after being disabled). ^Carter published several sections of this book as pamphlets in very small editions for distribution to friends, evidently before deciding to undertake the larger book. All of those pamphlets are extremely rare, and together constitute only part of the present work. Carter died the year after the book's publication, and the unsold edition may have been disposed of by the publisher. In any case, it is both important and very rare. BASIC TEXAS BOOKS 25.

        I AM YOUR BROTHER By Gabriel Marlowe [pseudonym]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company,. [1935]. original black cloth, front and rear panels stamped in purple, spine panel stamped in purple and yellow, bottom edge rough trimmed.. A fine copy in good pictorial dust jacket with wear at edges and. shallow loss at spine ends and corner tips and dust soiling to rear. panel. Overall, a pretty nice example of this stunning jacket. Both. this American edition and the UK edition are scarce and neither are. generally found with the jacket. (#151623). First U.S. edition. "Highbrow surrealist thriller and kinky Kunstlerroman, obtaining Gothic effects from a monster in the attic, and modernist effects from a quasi- stream-of-consciousness narrative style (present tense, only one chapter break) and a suggestion that the monster may be a phantasm in the mind of the hero, a struggling musician living with his addled mother, who feeds the Thing in the Attic -- a degenerate result of artificial insemination -- a diet of fairy tales and raw offal. The Thing rears itself up one day on its two huge wrinkled feet, with its huge forked tongue darting in and out of its mouth, and declares, 'I am your brother.' The theme of the Double is a venerable one in the Romantic tradition, while the theme of the degenerate sub-human had a currency in the period between the two World Wars that matched the fascination with the Over-Man. A notable book on many levels." - Robert Eldridge. The book, scarce and obscure now, was a hit, commercially and critically, in its day. August Derleth mentioned it to Lovecraft, who had not heard of it. Its author, a Jewish immigrant, disappeared in the early 1940s, possibly as a result of a trip he took to Norway, thinking it would be safe there to finish a play he was working on. The jacket art, by Rex Whistler, with its combination of thrills and polish, admirably suits the style of the writing. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Day (1963) or Reginald (1979; 1992).

      1935 - Darrow Attends a Banquet in Honor Of Lincoln Steffens [Darrow, Clarence (1857-1938)]. [Steffens, Lincoln (1866-1936)]. [12" x 20" Photograph of a Banquet Honoring Steffens, Party Includes Clarence and Ruby Darrow] New York: Standard Flashlight Company, 27 April 1931. [With] [11" x 6" Printed List of People Who Attended the Banquet]. [And] Darrow, Clarence. [Filene, Edward A. (1860-1937)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, To Filene, On the Letterhead of the Murray Hill Hotel, New York, New York, April 17, 1931]. Single 9-1/2" x 6" sheet. Some edgewear to photo, upper left corner of image repaired, light toning and fold lines to list, early annotations to photograph, a few chips and nicks to edges of both. Items mounted on 16" x 32" foam-core board. Letter, which is not mounted, has some toning, two horizontal fold lines, a few light pencil lines (offsetting from another document) and glue residue to verso, probably from mounting in an album, otherwise fine. Three items in all. * There are two captions at the foot of the image. One identifies the photography company, the other reads "Dinner to Lincoln Steffens and Characters in His Book Given by Edward A. Filene. Ritz Carlton Hotel April 27, 1931." The list, which includes several media people, social reformers and reform-minded politicians, such as Ida Tarbell and Bernard Baruch, is captioned: "Cast of Characters from "The Autobiography of Lincoln Steffens" and from his next book, present at the dinner given to the author and his characters by Edward A. Filene, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, April 27, 1931." Some of the attendees are identified in a contemporary hand. Darrow is seated at the center of the main table next to Steffens; Ruby Darrow is sitting at the right end. Darrow, in his letter, thanks Filene for the invitation to the event, "which I am very glad to accept" and adds: "Mrs. Darrow is here with me. May I bring her along?" This late request may be the reason why Ruby Darrow is seated several places away from Clarence. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Sammlung von 23 Portraitzeichnungen bzw. -karikaturen, alle "nach der Natur" gezeichnet und von Geyling eigenh. signiert, datiert und bezeichnet (oftmals auch unter Nennung des Ortes der Portraitsitzung). Beiliegend zwei eigenh. Schreiben Arthur Schnitzlers.

      Wien, 1897-1935. - In späteren Jahren vom Künstler selbst auf Untersatzkartons einheitlichen Formats montiert und in zwei einfache Mappen eingelegt, die er jeweils mit den Namen der Dargestellten eigenhändig beschriftete. Die Blätter selbst von der Hand des Künstlers durchlaufend numeriert (1-24, die auf ein Kartonblatt montierten Schreiben Schnitzlers als Nr. 23) und mit der Bezeichnung der Portraitierten unter Hinzufügung ihrer Lebens- bzw. Sterbedaten versehen. Imp.-Folio. Das früheste Blatt datiert aus dem Jahr 1897, dem Gründungsjahr der Wiener Secession und der Kunstzeitschrift "Ver Sacrum". Für letztere hatte Geyling laut seiner eigenh. Beschriftung das vorliegende Portrait des secessionistischen Bildhauers Rudolf Bacher geschaffen. Ein Großteil der von ihm in den beiden Mappen versammelten Bilder entstand dann 1905, im Jahr nach der Schließung des von ihm gemeinsam mit Otto Prutscher betriebenen Ateliers für Einrichtungs- und Ausstattungsbedarf und zur Blütezeit der Wiener Werkstätte, für die Geyling u. a. Postkarten entwarf. "Obwohl Mitglied des konservativen Künstlerhauses, stand er trotzdem der Wiener Secession nahe" (AKL LII, 462). Für Geyling waren "Klimt, Hoffmann, Roller, Olbrich nicht nur meine Kollegen, sondern auch meine Freunde und wir haben viele, viele Nächte über die 'neue und reine Kunst' debattiert" (Remigius Geyling erzählt, aufgezeichnet von Gerald Szyszkowitz. In: Nebehay/Krug, SS. 5-8, hier 7). Diese Nächte boten offenbar zahlreiche Gelegenheiten für Geylings Portraitstudien: die vorliegende Sammlung enthält neben den Portraits der obengenannten auch ein Bild des oftmaligen Tivoli-Gastes Egon Schiele aus dessen Todesjahr sowie eine im Cafe Museum entstandene Portraitzeichnung von Adolf Loos. Am selben Ort wird Geyling wohl auch der von ihm so bezeichnete "Fackl-Kraus" Portrait gesessen haben. Ein besonders enges Verhältnis pflegte Geyling zu Gustav Klimt: er "gehörte viele Jahre lang zum Kreis derjenigen, die mit Klimt am Tivoli frühstückten" (Nebehay/Krug, S. 3). In dem legendären Restaurationsbetrieb am Grünen Berg in Meidling entstand im Mai 1905 dann auch das Blatt mit den beiden Portraits Klimts. Gemeinsam mit Peter Altenberg und Otto Wagner gehört Klimt zu den wenigen, die in den vorliegenden Mappen mit mehr als einer Portraitstudie (jeweils auf einem Blatt) vertreten sind. Es war die Empfehlung seines Freundes Klimt, die Geyling 1910 zur Anstellung als Ausstattungschef der "Neuen Wiener Bühnen" verhalf; die erste von ihm ausgestattete Inszenierung am Burgtheater war die Premiere von Schnitzlers "Das weite Land". Bei den Proben zu ebendieser Inszenierung, am 14. X. 1911, entstand auch die in vorliegender Sammlung überlieferte Portraitzeichnung des Dichters. Die zwei beiliegenden Schreiben Schnitzlers an Geyling betreffen u. a. das gemeinsame Projekt des "Medardusfilm", hatte sich Geyling doch um die Austattung der bedeutendsten österreichischen Filmproduktionen verdient gemacht. Seine Übertragung der "Stilmittel der Wiener Werkstätte in das historische Trauerspiel [war] so wirkungsvoll, daß 1924 Fritz Lang Geylings Entwürfe für den Stummfilm 'Nibelungen' verwendete" (AKL LII, 462). - Provenienz: Wiener Privatsammlung, in die der Künstler die beiden Mappen noch zu Lebzeiten verkaufte. Die Nrn. 6-8 sowie 18, 21 und 22 der unten verlisteten Zeichnungen jeweils ganzseitig abgebildet in: Ch. M. Nebehay u. H. Krug (Hrsg.). Remigius Geyling. Künstler und Literaten. Gezeichnet in Wien um 1900. Wien 1974. (= Jahresgabe der Wiener Bibliophilengesellschaft). Die vorliegende Sammlung dort nicht beschrieben; alle übrigen Zeichnungen unveröffentlicht.

        Op. 95]. Le Petit Chaperon Rouge Double choeur pour voix de femmes et d'enfants. Avec acct de piano ou d'orchestre Pour le chorale des lycées de jeunes filles de Paris Poème de Guy de Teramond. op. 95. Chez Alphonse Leduc: Paris. Autograph musical manuscript signed

      - A piano-vocal edition of Le Petit Chaperon, with plate number A.L. 19,198, was published by Alphonse Leduc in 1935. The work is not cited in Grove online."Firmly rooted in the French 19th-century tradition, Büsser’s symphonic and choral writing is indebted to Gounod and Saint-Saëns. He is best known, however, for his dramatic works, which betray Wagner's impact in both their form and their use of the orchestra. The influence of Debussy, whose advice Büsser sought over the opera that became his most successful, Colomba (c1902–10), is also evident in certain harmonic procedures and in an acute sensitivity to orchestral colour. The ballets, such as the light-hearted La ronde des saisons (1905) with its amusing descriptive touches, provide further evidence of his keen dramatic sense." Barbara L. Kelly in Grove Music Online. Folio (ca. 360 x 273 mm). [i] (title), 20, [i] (blank) pp. Notated in black ink on music paper with 20 printed staves per page. Scored for double choir and piano. The work begins in A minor, in 3/4, Très Allant (quasi Allo). Textual incipit: "Dans la forêt où rien ne bouge."The engraver's copy, prepared for the publishing house Alphonse Leduc et Cie.With the composer's autograph signature ("Henri Busser") and date ("Paris, Août 15") to p. 20. Occasional erasures and corrections in black ink in the composer's hand.Lower edge of title with publisher's handstamps and manuscript date ("[19]35") and plate number ("A.L. 19,198") in an early hand. Numerous editorial markings, minor annotations, and occasional corrections in one or more early hands in pencil and red crayon.Slightly worn and soiled; minor ink smudges to 3 pages slightly affecting notation.

        Sciences occultes Initiation. Collection dactylographiée de divers textes occultes en allemand et en français.

      env. 1935, - gr. in-8vo, 154 p. dactylographiée (env. 44 lignes/p.), une partie des feuilles montées dans le volume, notes et corrections manuscrites au crayon. Timbré sur feuille de garde ?René Matthey Pont-Neuf Bex? (VD), écriture inconnue avec date ?1935? sur ff. de garde arrière, reliure en demi-toile avec plats noirs orné avec titre et dessin d?un livre avec tête de mort et tibias, le plat arrière montre une bougie, quelques rayures et bords légèrement usés, généralement en bon état. Oeuvre manuscrite très particulière réunissant des extraits de différentes publications suisses, allemandes et françaises sur le sujet de l?occultisme et spiritisme autour de 1900. Au lieu de simplement citer les textes, l?auteur sélectionne des passages intéressants et y ajoute ses remarques et questions (souvent au crayon). Il s?intéresse surtout aux pensées du juriste et spécialiste de la spiritualité chrétienne Georg Sulzer (1844-1929). Ce président d?un tribunal à Zurich était un des grands spiritistes de son temps et relate un grand nombre de rencontres et de discussions avec les esprits des morts comme par exemple avec l?esprit Hilmanuel, de son vivant prêtre à Dresden, mort en 1818, par là-même quasiment spécialiste pour l?au-delà. Ces défunts, parlant à travers des médiums, donnent des conseils et demandent de l?aide aux vivants. Les sources des textes utilisés sont les suivantes: Aus Licht und Schatten der spiritistischen Praxis, von Georg Sulzer, Kassationsgerichtspräsident a.D. in Zürich / Die Bedeutung der Wissenschaft vom Uebersinnlichen für Bibel und Christentum, von Georg Sulzer, Verlag von Oswald Mutze, Leipzig, 1907 / Briefe von Julia, von William T. Stead, herausgegeben von Georg Sulzer, im Verlag von Karl Rohm, Lorch, Württemberg / Extraits de Le prophète du nord, par Charles Byse, Paris. (avec e.a. Le système de Swedenborg). Aussergewöhnliches Werk, welches Auszüge verschiedener Publikationen aus der Schweiz bzw. Deutschland und aus Frankreich zum Thema Okkultismus und Spritismus um 1900 vereint. Statt einfacher Abschriften der Texte, trägt der Autor interessante Passagen zusammen und ergänzt seine Kommentare und Fragen (z.T. in Form von Bleistiftnotizen). Er interessiert sich vor allem für das Werk des Juristen Georg Sulzer (1844-1929), der über Jahrzehnte eine führende Persönlichkeit im christlichen Spiritualismus war. Sulzer war u.a. Gerichtspräsident in Zürich, was ihn aber nicht daran hinderte, nebenbei die Geister der Verstorbenen zu kontaktieren. Er berichtet von vielen Sitzungen bei denen verschiedene Geister zu Wort kommen, so z.B. der Kontrollgeist Hilmanuel, einen Pfarrers aus Dresden, gestorben 1818, der sozusagen als Spezialist vom Jenseits berichtet.

        Sade et Restif de la Bretonne. Tapuscrit avec de nombreux ajouts autographes [Ensemble] Un livre vivant. Manuscrit préparatoire [ensemble] Les plaisirs et les jours, tapuscrit final.

      First new version of the autograph manuscript of 17 pages, written in 1935. Manuscript writing very dense, full excluding the last 13 lines of printed text, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Complete typescript with a few variations from the manuscript and a copy of the first edition published in 1947 and finally published in 1950 is attached. In 1935, Blanchot has been working for 3 years on Thomas the Obscure (he completed in 1940) when interrupts his writing "that would not stop" to write the last word, a short story he describes as "an attempt to bypass another book underway to overcome the interminable and get a more linear narrative, yet painfully complex, a silent decision ... ". In 1983, Blanchot, referring to the motivations of this "innocent text where murderers omens of future time resounded," can not say "how it is written and how unknown requirement, it has the answer." "It was not a text for publication," he says in the afterword of hindsight. The last word will indeed published 12 years later in 550 copies in the collection golden age (although it went bankrupt at the same time, the book will be on sale in 1950) . So the first story is meant at once the last word and the refusal of its unveiling. "Surely begin to write immediately to achieve at the end (...), this means at least hope not to make a career and finding the shortest path to finish early." In this "Apocalypse" Blanchot leads his own novel being written: Thomas, the hero, and is ironically called the new power otherwise without express "what happened to him [that] saying nothing happened ". But if, starting with the last word, Blanchot marks the end of writing, it is an end that remains unpublished. And when the book is finally published, it will be more of a work already substantial: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadab, Faux pas, the Most High, Death Sentence and The Share of fire. Therefore, the last word is not "waiver be Master and Judge," but a written waiver of this "itself in vain." It can no longer be "the unusual resolution to deprive [Language] to support (...) that is to say more than language" but, as part of the work, there is a "word to say and do not say. ". A word rewritten by the writer he became transformed by writing and by war. This is the inaugural version, first draft of thirty young Blanchot, we present here and C. Bident his biographer, thought "probably never know." Narrative foundation, basic writing, many scholars have studied the last man, "painfully complicated" as even the author, but who calls a few "prophetic" pages a reflection on language (and, through him, totalitarianism) marking the second part of the century. Now we present the manuscript written in 1935 and until then unknown, differs considerably from the following two versions of 1947 and 1983. Written in the third person (the later will they, homodiégétiques) the story is much longer. It contains descriptions and including many deleted scenes that will be removed in the published versions: "The sun bathed [plaza] a fiery light of huge mirrors, placed at the four corners, be kicked around in a maze of colors . "" A cloud was soon raised to the ceiling, black cloud crossed by small glowing patches. "" I am worried, he said. I was wrong to leave earlier this house when I get home, surrounded by torches are extinguished one by one. What will I find now? How to live without I guideline? Can you tell me anything? "" Some children, head blackened coal, removed the sand in which they were buried, and trying to achieve with small white stones they drew from their pocket, they reviled in their incomprehensible language. "" Taking advantage of the lull, dogs out of their hole, as if they had been secretly excited by a master, they rushed to the sleeper by pulling on their links. They tried to right, left, then discovering it under the covers, they are slipped badly, small first, then the big dog, like a vicious bunch of kids. "" The intoxication of being together having lost younger pushed them into their own home as if she had ceased to be theirs, and they threw screams waking intruders from their homes. "But this manuscript provides the exegete especially demonstrative few passages that provide clarification on the meaning of the story:" Until is not an indifferent manner to the past and the future. If it is intended to extend a veil over what approach, if a link between, by mutual repulsion, separate time moments it appears from something, something else is not shown, however, that such limit. "" They whom nothing was forbidden to speak and who knew, behaved as if their knowledge had been to break with the language. "" The disciple on this admission, redoubled adoration, give themselves shots that change them into what they can be. At first common deception, they ran, one to an animal world, the other to a riveted himself a slave. "" They wanted to laugh again nonsense, is torturing a lie, but, having no other way to stand as the apotheosis, they lost sight of their mutual desire for death and blissfully enjoyed the rest. "A key reading these valuable addition changes that reflect real shifts of the author. If the most important is, of course, the choice of the first person in later versions, some lexical variations are also very significant. Thus: "I offer the spectacle of my vices" in the manuscript and typescript 1935 becomes: "I offer the spectacle of my mistakes" in the published version of the same in 1947. "This is an extract from the speech the third city "becomes" This is an excerpt of the speech on the third on the third State "; "A noise (...) was one stroke the whole town" becomes "was one stroke all the people" and "... on a deck of onomatopoeia" becomes "... a gateway ranting." Finally, it is a lyrical Blanchot that reveals this "abrupt call of language": "She had her hair hanging these broad wings velvet are a promise of transformation." "... When the sun casting its light shining against the mirrors everywhere, stopped above the esplanade and heard this loud voice, private mysteriously vowels and consonants, which announces the sharing of spaces" "Shouts of the crowd came and brought calls for an immense distress. "" He ran on the book and bit his teeth, as if he had made insensitive despite the bitterness of those old pages. ". In hindsight Blanchot hesitate to comment, however, that this text provides for the third time and he took care to revise again, 50 years after its first release. However, it brings some bits of explanations that reveal the importance of this little story in the life and work of one of the most mysterious writers of the twentieth century: "The last word has to tell main line, as having instead, the total wreck, the narrative itself can not therefore be preserved, and impossible or absurd, unless he should claim prophetic, heralding a future in the past already there or saying there always when there is nothing: either there wearing nothing and prevent the annihilation that it can not escape its long-term process which is rehashing and eternity.
