        L'idylle. Première version inédite. Manuscrit autographe complet

      - S.n., s.l. S.d (1936), 20 pages in-8 (13,5x21cm). - Prima versione originale e completo del manoscritto, scritta nel 1936. Manoscritto di scrittura molto denso, con molte cancellature, correzioni e aggiunte. "L'idillio, testo giovanile Maurice Blanchot pubblicato nel 1947 e ristampato nel 1951 a fianco l'Ultima Parola in un piccolo volume intitolato il rimaneggiamento eterna è stata spesso descritta come" enigma insolubile "[...] le circostanze di scrittura e pubblicazione aggiunge al mistero: non solo i primi manoscritti sono stati persi, ma le esperienze che testimonia e lo spirito che ha ispirato il suo design rimane inafferrabile. » Questi risultati Vivian Liska (in Blanchot, Herne Cahiers 107) dopo quelli di Christophe Bident (Maurice Blanchot, socio invisibile), dare a questi primi due racconti, le opere più ristampate di Blanchot, uno status unico nel suo lavoro. Se l'ultima parola è logicamente parte del Thomas del lavoro di scrittura Obscure (Sia maturazione o di decostruzione), Idyll sembra avere "alcuna relazione con le altre finzioni Blanchot, passato e futuro ", secondo Michael Holland, ricercatore e docente di letteratura francese a St Hugh College di Oxford, autore di numerosi articoli su Maurice Blanchot Prima che dicono: Essays on Blanchot apparso nel 2015 a Hermann. Oggetto letterario Enigmatico, anche alla luce di un lavoro per sé complessa, Idillio, più di una nuova giovinezza sembra subito un "esperimento non correlati o incompatibile con la poetica" di lavorare a venire (V. Liska) e la nascita di una scrittura di silenzio. E durante le sue pubblicazioni, domande Idyll al suo autore stesso che in Aftermath vede cacciata di sua creazione e alla fine segni di riconoscimento, avvertendo dall'introduzione della futilità di il tentativo. Il primo è la questione del titolo della notizia. Title "Idyll" adottato per la pubblicazione rivisto nel 1947, si vede dalla prima edizione del volume nel 1951, dominata da un altro titolo con due novità: il rimaneggiamento eterna. Nel 1983, si è a sua volta preceduto dal titolo della postfazione: Aftermath. La domanda è posta da Blanchot stesso nella postfazione attraverso la designazione le distanze (e improvvisamente arricchito con un sottotitolo) di questa "storia che sembra essere stato chiamato - è ironicamente? - L '"Idillio" e il tormento della felice idea. » Ma questo titolo è solo manca il manoscritto (che non era il caso di Last Word - vedi catalogo Grand Palais 2014), che colpisce senza dubbio lo stato della storia e l'intento editoriale dell'autore. Naturalmente, al di là del titolo, è la stessa storia che resiste analisi, i critici, che di Blanchot anche: "E 'impossibile per me sapere [...] come sono scritti e come Requisiti sconosciuti hanno dovuto incontrare. " Il manoscritto originale si presenta come una fonte cruciale di informazioni per cercare di risolvere alcuni dei puzzle del testo. Dice lo sviluppo di nomi dei personaggi, le varie fasi di scrittura: frasi strisce indicate tra virgolette singole, varianti sovrapposti ... scopriamo brani inediti lungo eliminati direttamente sul manoscritto o intatta fino pubblicazione. Possiamo analizzare cambiando pensiero autoriale, aumentando la precisione del manoscritto con correzioni stanno diminuendo nelle pagine di diventare sempre più vicino alla versione pubblicata. Ma ciò che colpisce, come il manoscritto di The Last Word è la presenza nella versione originale di elementi profondamente significativi la cui rimozione contribuirà alla creazione di un lavoro aporetico volontariato. Di Blanchot scrittura procede per la potatura. Sappiamo quanti programma di perdita di peso è stato Thomas il Obscure per raggiungere la sua forma finale. Nel caso di The Idyll, ridimensionamento è più senso dal momento che, come osserva Blanchot, "come narrazione, che ha detto, indicando quello che ha da dire [...] è colui che è il idillio ". Pertanto, la sua sostanza dovrebbe diminuire per compare la sua struttura essenziale, dice Michael Holland. I numerosi passaggi del manoscritto rimosse nel 1947 non sono prive di tracce di adempimento di una versione, ma la rivelazione di un campo di lavoro finale. Il campo esterno è in gran parte costituito dal rapporto tra il direttore e sua moglie, Louise, che è appunto il centro del lavoro. La coppia passato abbiamo così rivelato e interpretato dai vari protagonisti. Il regista: "30 anni ho sperimentato la più gioia che può essere riservata per un uomo (?). Sono quasi morto di asfissia ... " Louise: "[molto cancellato] il giovane chiamato ogni sera dal giardino, si è rifiutata di andare giù ..." Piotl: "Loro stessi non avevano figli. La vendetta del destino che li ha privati di origine se la prendono privando alcun risultato. Essi trionfo del male che non meritano di essere una nuova disgrazia schiacciante cui sono responsabili ... "(p. 7) I personaggi sono anche più vocale circa la situazione attuale della coppia: Pagina 5: "Un partito strano, Alexander Akim, abbiamo litigato. [Long Reach barrato] litigi, Hai sentito? È vero? "Disse lo sconosciuto, rivolgendosi al direttore. - "Sì, ha detto quest'ultimo, naturalmente. C'è qualcosa di inspiegabile rabbia; si sta cercando per la causa ed è invisibile; vogliamo vedere le suites e sono senza numero. Per fortuna, lei può fare nulla contro la vera amicizia. » Questa confessione di "amicizia" invece di amore atteso dallo stesso regista, è una prima risposta alle domande di Akim, risposta in contrasto con il mistero che domina le versioni stampate. Ma il più significativo brano manoscritto è probabilmente quello, guardiano centrale che descrive la sua scoperta della coppia, subito dopo il loro matrimonio, sia morto e vivo. Più ampia rispetto alla versione stampata, si è particolarmente arricchita da una rivelazione di capitale, ridefinendo il titolo stesso del lavoro. Pagina 11: "Sapevo che qualcosa di terribile era accaduto. [...]. Ho pensato che fossero morti, entrambi. [...]. Erano seduti l'uno dall'altro in cattivi sedie (?), Silenzioso e stranieri, al punto che chiunque avrebbe preso per vagabondi. [...] Erano assolutamente fuori strada, non hanno cura di non cadere [...]. - È proprio così? Chiese Akim. Ma ciò che si descrive qui è [...] la sensazione che è il cuore di ogni romanticismo, la vera felicità senza parole. - Oh Davvero? ha detto il supervisore, e si chiamano? Io lo chiamo disperazione [aggettivo segue tra virgolette sembra essere "felice", ma è stato graffiato da Blanchot]. » La "disperazione felice": il paradosso è stata una risposta nel racconto, la questione del vero significato del idillio. Questo è a costo della rimozione di questa "interpretazione" e tutti gli elementi narrativi che portano ad esso, Blanchot può trasformare la domanda posta nel storia in questione dalla narrazione. Poiché il manoscritto rivela è che la storia di Blanchot non è ellittica, strutturato per l'assenza di significato, ma volentieri incomplete, preparato da ritiri successivi del significante. In questo evidente deterioramento del senso interno alla storia, si scopre anche che il collegamento simbolico tra gli elementi della storia. Così, la valvola a farfalla Akim da un altro detenuto, ha avuto nella storia originale un'eco inquietante nel rapporto del direttore e la moglie: "Lei vuole che lui a vivere con questa mano alla gola che il morsetto sufficiente per a morte. "(P. 7) Altri elementi di pathos, pubblicazione cancellato rafforzano il parallelo tra la tragedia silenziosa della coppia e dei prigionieri: "io sputo in faccia"; "La frusta era strumento morbida e tagliente acciaio sotto che penetrava nella carne e ritirando lo strappo. . "A differenza la complicità della coppia al di là di equivoco risuona molto Blanchot in una informazione totalmente cancellato. Si rivela una complicità letteraria tra all'estero e un supervisore "totalmente inconsapevole" che "sorpreso Akim occupato a leggere un piccolo libro che si è sempre svolto ed è stato scritto nella lingua del suo paese." Tra le più gravi questioni a cui è confrontata in Aftermath, Blanchot particolare enfasi sulla relazione del Idyll profetica alla storia. "Lavare te; Qui ci concentriamo su di igiene. [...] Si sedette e, mentre l'acqua ha cominciato a cadere nel fumo e rumore, fu colto da nausea e la coscienza perduta. "L'episodio della doccia, che apre la storia quasi induce una concentrazione post-rotonda lettura a sua volta assunta e rifiutato da Blanchot. Leggendo il manoscritto e la sua variazione con il testo stampato, se non risolve il problema, il redirect ancora: «Qui ci occupiamo di igiene" dimostra di essere in origine, "tutti qui è pulito"; "E 'stato colto da nausea e la coscienza perduta" era "è stato stordito che ha sollevato il suo cuore e lo fece perdere i sensi." Non vi è nessuna correzione nel manoscritto, la variazione è contemporanea alla pubblicazione e non la scrittura. In termini puramente letterari, la figura dello straniero ritorna, sempre in attesa di quel famoso Camus (che Blanchot anche essere il primo difensore): "Il tema che mi riconosco in primo luogo perché Camus rendono il familiare è designato le prime parole:. 'straniero' " Il manoscritto qui che confermare l'importanza immediato della designazione del personaggio. Michael Holland sottolinea in particolare questi elementi che sconvolgono la datazione del testo originale: "L'idillio, mentre cenno verso un passato (1936) si sta separando e quindi disorientati in relazione ad esso, segna la nascita di una narrazione in spazio Blanchot molto originale in cui disastro incombente nel 1936 per diventare definitiva nel 1940 nel racconto di finzione, non uno specchio, ma un discorso che per la sua stessa impossibilità, è la misura di ciò che il mezzo disastro. » Insistenza di Blanchot a respingere la nuova in un lontano passato, pre-apocalittico, con la prima edizione nel 1947, lascia una sorpresa. Ha fatto lo stesso nelle sue dediche, specificando l'intempestività di queste storie: "Purtroppo queste pagine antiche", ha scritto sui due esemplari del rimaneggiamento eterna ha rivolto al fratello e la sorella, così come sua sorella e sua madre (vedi catalogo marzo 2015) - anche nota il molto misterioso "alas". Ma fu nel 1983 in Aftermath, qu'insistant ancora a lungo su questo anzianità "queste vecchie storie, così vecchio (50 anni)"; Blanchot offre una put inquietante in prospettiva questa enfasi: "prima storia di Auschwitz. Ad un certo momento si può scrivere una storia ora sarà prima di Auschwitz. » Così, l'evocazione dei campi in un nuovo non può che essere profetica, perché "non ci può essere la storia di Auschwitz-fiction." Quindi, quale modo migliore per sfuggire l'impossibilità di scrivere prima della storia? Che non si può dire può anche essere previsto. Si è tentati di guardare nella stessa storia della pista Idyll di questo approccio in passato di questo impossibile. La transizione verso il libraio è preoccupante in questo senso; offre Akim, "un antico libro che tracciato la storia di tutta la regione." Akim, che avrebbe preferito un lavoro "più recente", tuttavia, deriva "dalla lettura più profitto che aveva sperato." Se i "Libri" nella versione finale a questo si aggiunge che la prima visita è stata nel manoscritto, "un vecchio negozio di libri" e che nel passaggio del prestito dal libro raro, Blanchot cancellato versione pubblicato "perché [il libro] sembrava interessato a un lungo passato di tempo," l'ipotesi di una datazione fittizia dall'autore senso. Se fosse vero, questo inganno naturalmente portare una nuova luce su questo nuovo e l'intera opera di Blanchot. Tuttavia, non sembra che il manoscritto potrebbe, se non per i piccoli dettagli, databile dopo la guerra. Il manoscritto è in gran parte per le sue dimensioni, la qualità della carta e la densità di scrittura Blanchot, il manoscritto di The Last Word abbiamo proposto in un catalogo precedente (o l'ultima parola sembra essere datato con certezza). D'altra parte, non è datato, o se la data - 1936 - era un elemento finzione, è probabile che il Maurice Blanchot stata apposta alla manoscritto. Uno studio approfondito di questi documenti, Blanchot della scrittura e della carta, ma sarebbe sicuramente rispondere a questa domanda partecipando al mistero della scrittura più enigmatico di Maurice Blanchot. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première version inédite et complète du manuscrit autographe, rédigé en 1936.

        Gutenberg and the Catholicon of 1460. A Bibliographical Essay. Together with An Original Leaf of the Catholicon

      NY: Brick Row Book Shop, 1936. Folio. (6), 28pp. Library Edition. Contains an original leaf from the Catholicon of 1460, whose production, as Stillwell argues in the essay within, should be credited to Johannes Gutenberg (some have argued that the second printing was achieved by Peter Schoeffer in 1469, after Gutenberg's death). Stillwell's work is divided into four parts and includes a registry of extant copies of the Catholicon of 1460. The single folio leaf measures 14 3/8 by 11 3/16 inches (365 x 284mm) and is printed on both sides with 66 lines in double columns, with red one-line rubricated initial capitals. The leaf is laid into a recessed panel in the inner rear cover, framed and held in place with silver clasps. The provenance of this copy, from which the leaves come, includes: "...the possession of Sir Hans Sloane prior to 1753 when it was acquired by Trustees of the newly founded British Museum...It next appeared in the library of Henry W. Poor at whose sale in November 1908 it was bought by Alvin W. Krech, the distinguised banker and bibliophile, the kind co-operation of whose family makes this re-publication possible..." Bound in full crimson buckram by Krumin of Boston, and stamped in blind and gilt on both covers. The leaf shows a few small marginal chips, else fine. Housed in a maroon wrapper and the original slipcase, both of which show some edgewear. (BCC #6; Chalmers 70).

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1936. 297 pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial cover. First American edition.Young Men in Spats is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on 3 April 1936 by Herbert Jenkins, London, then in the United States with a slightly different selection of stories on 24 July 1936 by Doubleday, Doran, New York. The collection, recounting the adventures of various members of the Drones Club (except for the last one), features many familiar characters from Wodehouse's other writings, including Freddie Widgeon and the irrepressible Mr Mulliner. One story, "Uncle Fred Flits By", features the first appearance of Pongo Twistleton and his Uncle Fred, who would go on to feature in four novels, including two appearances at Blandings Castle. The US edition contains a slightly different selection of stories from the UK version. "Tried in the Furnace" and "Trouble Down At Tudsleigh" had not previously appeared in the US, and were held back so they could garner greater income from magazine sales. (Both stories eventually appeared in Cosmopolitan.) These two stories were accordingly replaced by three Oldest Member golf stories, "There's Always Golf", "The Letter of the Law", and "Farewell to Legs". These three Oldest Member stories had all appeared in US magazines in early 1936; they all later appeared in the UK in Lord Emsworth and Others (1937). After their Cosmopolitan appearances, "Tried in the Furnace" was included in the US-only collection The Crime Wave at Blandings (1937), and "Trouble Down at Tudsleigh" was included in the US edition of Eggs, Beans and Crumpets (1940).Condition:Light sunning to extremities and spine.

        Autograph Signatures from 1936 Porgy & Bess Production

      - Bold autograph signature in pencil "George Gershwin" on an album sheet, dated 1936 at the left in another hand, together with a second signature from the same album and apparently same occasion, being that of Anne Brown (signed "Anne Brown / 'Bess' / 'Porgy and Bess'"), creator of the role of Bess.  Porgy and Bess was first performed at the Colonial Theater in Boston on September 30th 1935. It opened in New York at the Alvin Theater on October 10th of that same year, starring Anne Brown as Bess and Todd Duncan as Porgy. The work includes a number of Gershwin's best-known and loved tunes, including Summertime and I Got Plenty o' Nuttin, both of which were among the pieces performed here.  After the Broadway run, a tour started on January 27, 1936, in Philadelphia and traveled to Pittsburgh and Chicago before ending in Washington, D.C., on March 21, 1936. During the Washington run, the cast--as led by Todd Duncan--protested segregation at the National Theatre. Eventually management gave in to the demands, resulting in the first integrated audience for a performance of any show at that venue. Given the dating of the Gershwin signature, we understand that these were both obtained during that historic run of the performance.

        Margaret Mitchel annotates her "Gone With The Wind" promo pamphlet!

      n.p., n.d.. 5" x 7.25". "Gone With The Wind Stapled pamphlet in soft wraps, 5"" x 7.25"" with 22 paginated pages. Published by The Macmillan Company, New York, 1936. Annotated in Margaret Mitchell's hand with two areas blacked out and the words ""(sprained ankle)"" scripted in. Vertical fold to pamphlet, faint handling marks to outer wraps. Interior very clean.A neat, succinct pamphlet ""created as a compilation in response to a flood of requests from readers all over the country for information about the author and her book.""A wonderful overview of how the novel came to be, and the authors skill of portraying very complex personalities woven into the background of the destruction and reconstruction of the South. After Margaret Michell denied that she was even writing a novel to the VP of The Macmillan Company, H.S. Latham, she apparently reconsidered and personally brought the incomplete manuscript in for his review- without notice or warning. He comments on how Gone With The Wind came to be written and published:""A few hours before I left Atlanta, the telephone in my hotel room rang and Miss Mitchell's voice came to me over it informing me that she was downstairs in the lobby and would like to see me. I went down, and I shall never forget the picture I have of Margaret Mitchell as I then saw her - a tiny woman sitting on a divan, and beside her the biggest manuscript I have ever seen, towering in two stacks almost up to her shoulders. .. ""If you really want it, you may take it, but it is incomplete, unrevised, there are several versions of some of the chapters, there is no first chapter"" Miss Mitchell went on hurriedly as though she was in danger of changing her mind if she stopped to think…""Margaret had explained she came to write her novel from something her mother said. According to Latham ""When Peggy was a young girl she had shown little interest in acquiring an education and her mother, to impress upon her the necessity of a proper education, took her out for a ride … to the rural sections surrounding Atlanta and showed her the land that had been laid waste by War…. Her mother pointed out to her the homes of some families who had the ability and the will power to rise about the wreckage of war and Reconstruction and other homes where the families had sunk down because they had no resources within themselves to aid them in surviving…. Miss Mitchell explained that this experience stimulated her interest in people who fought things through to success as well as in those who went down valiantly in the struggle, or who managed just to exist -- ""Georgians who did come through, and Georgians who didn't""Mitchell, later in the pamphlet, goes on to comment 'If the novel has a theme, the theme is that of survival. What makes some people able to come through catastrophes and others, apparently just as able, strong and brave, go under?"" Margaret also reveals her writing methodology, wishing to write a clear, clean and simple writing style. She wished to create a novel in ""primitive emotions which moved in straight lines, instead of fantastic zigzags of human and sexual relationships that clutter up so much of modern fiction"". And then she infused her writing with intense characterization with characters who are not merely described, but who live, grow older and change under our eyes…""A wonderful pamphlet with unique insight into the creation of both the novel and the author of Gone With The Wind. Includes a wonder annotation on page 16 in Mitchell's hand! "

All this while he was an avid collector of autographs, mainly through highly persistent correspondence. He wrote as many as thirty letters to King Alfonso of Spain before receiving his autographed photograph - Kaiser Wilhem was a relative pushover at 17. Greenway was interviewed in the 14 May 1941 issue of Life Magazine about his autograph collection, and even wrote a book on the subject, Big Game Hunting With a Fountain Pen.

        The Three Little Pigs.

      Moscow & Leningrad: Detizdat Komsomol, 1936. Octavo. A Russian edition of Walt Disney's Three Little Pigs, published by the Children's Publishing House of the Komsomol Central Committee, part of the Communist Party. With nine full-page black & white illustrations, and several smaller vignettes throughout. Inspired by Walt Disney's wildly popular Silly Symphony of the same title, the original, American edition of The Three Little Pigs was ghostwritten by Ruth Plumly Thompson, best known for her contributions to the Oz series, and published in 1933 by Blue Ribbon Books. The story was translated into Russian by the award-winning poet and children's author Sergey Mikhalkov, who also, on three separate occasions, penned a new Russian national anthem. This Russian edition does not have all of the illustrations from the original 1933 Disney book, which was illustrated in color, and the illustrations are mirrored in orientation. Together with a miniature version of the same book, published in 1938. The miniature version has six full-page illustrations, printed in color. In his testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee, Walt Disney noted that although the Soviet Union refused to purchase most Disney films, saying that "they didn't suit their purposes," the nation did acquire The Three Little Pigs and showed it throughout the country. The Komsomol Children's Publishing House capitalized on the movie's popularity and success by releasing these two books. Both books in illustrated yellow wrappers. Some wear to larger book, and ownership inscription to rear cover of miniature book, else remarkably fine condition for such ephemeral items. (Miniature book measures 2 7/8 by 2 3/8 inches). (Walt Disney: Conversations, pp. 34-35).

        L'Orphelin de la Brousse... et Chut le Kangourou Boxeur.

      Paris: Imp. Henon, circa, 1936. Colour-printed poster (120 x 80 cm.); original Dutch release stamp at upper left. An early appearance of what would become a classic Australian emblem - the boxing kangaroo. Skippy's predecessor, Chut was for a while 'the most famous kangaroo in Australia'.This wonderful large poster advertises a European showing of the Australian cinematic triumph The Orphan of the Wilderness. Although Australian actors including Owen Muro, José Valli, and Sylvia Kellaway, are all given space on the poster, the real star of the piece is Chut, the boxing kangaroo. The film was directed by Ken G. Hall, perhaps better known today for his involvement in On Our Selection (1932) or Dad and Dave Come to Town (1938).Paul Byrnes has written about the movie that it was 'one of the first features to use Australian wildlife as its prime attraction, and it was popular. Chut became the most famous kangaroo in Australia until Skippy came along in a television series in the 1960s... The most remarkable feature of the film is the opening sequence, where we see a mob of kangaroos living in an idyllic forest, with koalas and emus and dingoes. The forest was created from scratch in the Cinesound studio in Bondi by art director J. Alan Kenyon. The kangaroos actually look like they've been there some time, and the studio setting allowed cameraman George Heath to capture some beautiful close-ups of the animals.''The graphic symbol of a boxing kangaroo became popular as 'nose-art' on aircraft flown by Australian airmen in the Second World War, and continues to be painted on RAAF aircraft. It was also the mascot for the Australian sailors who won the America's Cup yacht race in 1983. Contests between men and kangaroos were a frequent 'attraction' in travelling tent shows in Australia in the 19th century... ' (source: - where there are some clips from the movie to be seen). Some wear along the folds, and a little dusted, but in remarkably good condition.
