        Tubular, Streamlined Ship Constructiuon, 1930's

      Self-published. 1936 - Leonard R. Bester was a marine architect and naval engineer who produced this very interesting document on his highly-stylized concepts for boat/ship design. The vessels are all certainly streamlined, and are long and narrow, and share the same "tubular" hull construction. He recorded them in these documents (below) which were sent by him to secure copyright protection to the U.S. copyright office, one copy of which was sent on to the Library of Congress. They were certainly produced on a very small production scale, perhaps only a few copies made, given what looks like their home-cooked flavor--in any event, they did not receive any circulation that I can find, and are not listed anywhere in WorldCat (which is a librarian's tool for recording and documenting books) showing that nothing by Bester is listed in any contributing library worldwide. **The work seems to be divided into two section, each section with three parts, and although not dated per se the title pages such as they are are copyrighted 1935 and 1936, with the later having a copyright/Library of Congress acquisitions stamp for 1936. The blueprints, on the other hand, date back as far as 1931, so there's a bit of a mix. The work certainly is not passed 1936. Altogether there are 19 folding blueprints of boats, 36 pages of text, 12 photographs on three leaves, and several folding charts. Section one is loose sheets with three-ring punched holes; section two is very similar but bound in the original back brass-clasp paper wrappers. Provenance: the Library of Congress, "the Pamphlet Collection".***Section I: The Streamline Fleet (1935), divided into three sections. Part I "Features and Advantages of the New Tubular Type Boat", pp 3-6 Tech illustrations in 12 figures, pp 7-9, followed by 6 leaves of 2 figure/leaf of various cross-sections "Design Features", pp 10-14, with a folding plate: "Comparative plate of tubular type hull structure", 13x18" "Main points of advantages of tubular design", pp 15-17 "Summary of the Streamline Tubular Boat", pp 18-19 "High Speed Yachts", p. 22 "Future of the Yachting Industry", pp 23-26 Conclusion, p. 27 Part II "Propulsion Machinery, Diesel Power", pp 28-30, with 3 leaves of tables and 2 folding plates on the turbine Part III "Navy Boats", pp 31-36. Part IV (folding plates) "High Speed tubular 50' to 60' streamline diesel cruiser, twin screw", 11x17", 1931 High Speed tubular 54' streamline diesel cruiser, twin screw", 11x17", 1931 "Strealine 85' Diesel Yacht", 11x17", 1932 "Tubular steel 100' streamline diesel commuting yacht, twin or triple screw" 11x17 inches (1931) Schematic: "tubular design showing strong and light construction", 12x16" "Tubular steel 120' streamline diesel yacht, triple screw" 1931 11x17 "High Speed Turbine--Tubular--110 to 130' Streamline Diesel Yacht, quadruple screw", (1931) 11x24" "High Speed Turbine--Tubular--150' Streamline Diesel Yacht, quadruple screw", (1931) 11x24" "Quadruple screw diesel powered auxiliary torpedo boa", 1935, 12x30". Section II: Streamlined Tubular Hull Structure, Design, Layouts, and Interior Arrangement of Cruisers and Yachts Part I contains seven folding plans and cross section blueprints of the design, includes the following sections: Streamlined Diesel Cruiser, 1936, 34x8', 10x13 inches Streamlined Diesel Cruiser, 1936, 40x8', 10x13 inches Streamlined Diesel Cruiser, 1936, 45x9', 10x13 inches Streamlined Diesel Cruiser, 1936, 50x10', 10x13 inches Streamlined Diesel Cruiser, 1936, 57x11', 12x17 inches Streamlined tubular twin screw diesel commuting yacht, 23x16 inches another copy of Streamlined tubular twin screw diesel commuting yacht, 23x16 inches, though with different applications. Part II contains 3 leaves, each with four original photographs each, with tissue guards. These are photos of scale models of Bester's designs, though the dimensions are unfortunately not mentioned. Part III concentrates on "express transportation yachts", and contains five folding cro [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        L'idylle. Première version inédite. Manuscrit autographe complet

      S.n, 1936. - 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. Manuscrit à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. « L'Idylle, texte de jeunesse de Maurice Blanchot publié pour la première fois en 1947 et réédité en 1951 aux côtés du Dernier Mot dans un petit volume intitulé le Ressassement éternel a souvent été qualifié d'"énigme insoluble" [...] les circonstances de sa rédaction et de sa publication ajoutent à son mystère : non seulement les premiers manuscrits ont été égarés, mais les expériences dont il témoigne et l'esprit qui a présidé à sa conception restent difficiles à cerner. » Ces constatations de Vivian Liska (in Blanchot, Cahiers de l'Herne 107) à la suite de celles de Christophe Bident (Maurice Blanchot, partenaire invisible), confèrent à ces deux premiers récits, les plus réédités des œuvres de Blanchot, un statut unique dans son œuvre. Si le Dernier Mot s'inscrit plus logiquement dans le travail d'écriture de Thomas l'Obscur (qu'il en soit une maturation ou une déconstruction), L'Idylle semble n'avoir « aucun rapport avec les autres fictions de Blanchot, tant passées que futures » d'après Michael Holland, chercheur et professeur de littérature française au St Hugh's College à Oxford, auteur de plusieurs articles sur Maurice Blanchot dont Avant dire : Essais sur Blanchot paru en 2015 chez Hermann. Objet littéraire énigmatique, même au regard d'une œuvre elle - même complexe, L'Idylle, bien plus qu'une nouvelle de jeunesse, semble tout à la fois une « expérimentation sans lien, voire incompatible, avec la poétique » de l'œuvre à venir (V. Liska) et la naissance d'une écriture du silence.   Ainsi au fil de ses parutions, L'Idylle interroge jusqu'à son auteur - même qui dans Après - coup se voit évincer de sa propre création et s'épuise à la cerner, tout en avertissant dès l'introduction de l'inanité de sa tentative.   En premier lieu se pose la question du titre même de la nouvelle. « L'Idylle », titre adopté pour la publication en revue en 1947, se voit, dès la première édition en volume en 1951, dominé par un autre titre regroupant les deux nouvelles : Le Ressassement éternel. En 1983, celui - ci se trouve à son tour précédé du titre de la postface : Après - coup. La question est posée par Blanchot lui - même dans cette postface à travers la désignation distanciée (et soudain enrichie d'un sous - titre) de ce « récit qui semble avoir été nommé - est - ce par antiphrase ? - l'"Idylle" ou le tourment de l'idée heureuse. » Or ce titre est justement absent du manuscrit (ce n'était pas le cas du Dernier Mot - cf. notre catalogue Grand Palais 2014), ce qui, incontestablement, influe sur le statut du récit et l'intention éditoriale de l'auteur. Bien entendu, au - delà du titre, c'est le récit même qui résiste à l'analyse, celle des critiques, celle de Blanchot également : « il m'est impossible de savoir [...] comment ils se sont écrits et à quelle exigence inconnue ils ont dû répondre ». Le manuscrit originel apparaît alors comme une source d'information capitale pour tenter de résoudre quelques - unes des énigmes du texte. On y lit l'élaboration des noms de personnages, les différentes étapes de l'écriture : phrases rayées, signalées par des guillemets simples, variantes superposées... on y découvre de longs passages inédits, supprimés directement sur le manuscrit ou intacts jusqu'à la publication. On peut y analyser l'évolution de la pensée auctoriale par la précision grandissante du manuscrit dont les corrections s'amenuisent au fil des pages pour devenir de plus en plus proche de la version publiée. Mais ce qui frappe, à l'instar du manuscrit du Dernier Mot, c'est la présence dans cette version originale d'éléments profondément signifiants dont la suppression contribuera à la constitution d'une œuvre volontairement aporétique.   L'écriture de Blanchot procède par élagage. On sait combien de cures d'amaigrissement a subi Thomas l'Obscur pour arriver à sa forme dernière. Dans le cas de L'Idylle, le retranchement est plus signifiant encore puisque comme le note Blanchot : « en tant que récit, qui dit en s'énonçant tout ce qu'il a à dire [...] c'est lui qui serait l'idylle ». Par conséquent, sa substance doit s'amenuiser pour que sa structure essentielle apparaisse, précise Michael Holland. Les nombreux passages du manuscrit supprimés en 1947 ne sont donc pas les traces d'une version inaboutie, mais la révélation d'un hors champs de l'œuvre définitive. Ce hors - champ est en grande partie constitué par la relation entre le directeur et sa femme, Louise, qui est justement le point focal de l'œuvre. Le passé du couple nous est ainsi révélé et interprété par les différents protagonistes. Le directeur : « à trente ans j'ai connu la joie la plus ( ?) qui puisse être réservée à un homme. J'ai cru mourir d'étouffement... » Louise : « [une grande partie raturée] le jeune homme l'appelait tous les soirs depuis le jardin, elle refusait de descendre...  » Piotl : « Eux - mêmes n'ont pas d'enfant. La revanche sur le sort qui les a privés d'origine  ils la prennent en se privant de toute suite. Ils triomphent du malheur qu'ils n'ont pas mérité en s'accablant d'un nouveau malheur dont ils sont responsables... » (p. 7) Les personnages sont également plus loquaces sur la situation actuelle du couple : Page 5 : « Une étrange fête, Alexandre Akim, nous nous sommes querellés. [Long passage raturé] Querellés, entendez - vous cela ? » - « Est - ce vrai ? » dit l'étranger en se tournant vers le directeur. - « Mais oui, dit celui - ci, naturellement. Il y a quelque chose d'inexplicable dans la colère ; vous en cherchez la cause et elle est invisible ; on veut en voir les suites et elles sont sans nombre. Heureusement, elle ne peut rien contre la véritable amitié. » Cet aveu d'« amitié » au lieu de l'amour attendu, par le directeur lui - même, constitue une première réponse aux interrogations d'Akim, réponse incompatible avec le mystère dominant la version imprimé. Mais le passage le plus signifiant du manuscrit est sans doute celui, central, du gardien relatant sa découverte du couple, peu après leur mariage, à la fois mort et vivant. Plus étoffé que la version imprimé, il est surtout enrichi d'une révélation capitale, redéfinissant le titre même de l'œuvre. Page 11 : « Je savais que quelque chose d'horrible s'était passé. [...]. Je croyais qu'ils étaient morts, tous les deux. [...]. Ils étaient assis à l'écart l'un de l'autre, sur des mauvaises chaises ( ?), silencieux et étrangers, au point que n'importe qui les aurait pris pour des vagabonds. [...] ils étaient absolument à l'écart, ils ne se souciaient que de ne pas tomber [...]. - C'est tout ? demanda Akim. Mais ce que vous décrivez là c'est [...] le sentiment qui est au cœur de toute idylle, un véritable bonheur sans parole. - Vraiment ? dit le surveillant, vous l'appelez ainsi ? Moi je l'appelle le désespoir [suit un adjectif entre guillemet qui semble être « heureux » mais qui a été rayé par Blanchot]. » Le « désespoir heureux » : ce paradoxe constituait une réponse, dans le récit, à la question du vrai sens de l'Idylle. Ce n'est qu'au prix de la suppression de cette « interprétation » et de tous les éléments narratifs qui y conduisent, que Blanchot peut transformer la question posée dans le récit en question posée par le récit.   Car ce que le manuscrit nous révèle, c'est que le récit de Blanchot n'est pas elliptique, structuré par l'absence de sens, mais volontairement lacunaire, élaboré par retraits successifs du signifiant.   Dans cette dégradation manifeste du sens interne au récit, on découvre également celle du lien symbolique entre les éléments de l'histoire. Ainsi, l'étranglement d'Akim par un autre détenu, avait dans le récit initial un écho troublant dans la relation du directeur et de sa femme : « Elle veut qu'il vive avec cette main à la gorge qui le serre assez pour le faire mourir. » (p. 7) D'autres éléments de pathos, supprimés à la publication viennent renforcer le parallèle entre la tragédie silencieuse du couple et celle des détenus : « je te crache à la figure » ; « Le fouet était un instrument d'acier souple et tranchant qui pénétrait sous la chair et en se retirant l'arrachait. ». A l'inverse la complicité du couple au - delà de l'incompréhension trouve un écho, très blanchotien, dans un passage entièrement supprimé. On y découvre une connivence littéraire entre l'étranger et un surveillant « totalement ignorant » qui « surprit Akim occupé à lire un petit livre que celui - ci portait toujours sur soi et qui était écrit dans la langue de son pays ».   Parmi les interrogations les plus fortes auxquelles il se trouve confronté dans Après - coup, Blanchot insiste particulièrement sur celle de la relation prophétique de L'Idylle à l'Histoire. « Lavez - vous bien ; ici nous nous intéressons à l'hygiène.  [...] Il s'assit par terre et, tandis que l'eau se mettait à tomber dans la fumée et le bruit, il fut pris de nausée et perdit connaissance. » L'épisode de la douche, qui ouvre presque le récit, induit une lecture post - concentrationnaire tour à tour assumée et rejetée par Blanchot. La lecture du manuscrit et de ses variations avec le texte imprimé, si elle ne résout pas cette question, la réoriente pourtant : « ici nous nous intéressons à l'hygiène » se révèle être originellement : « ici tout le monde doit être propre » ; « il fut pris de nausée et perdit connaissance » était : « il fut pris d'un vertige qui lui souleva le cœur et lui fit perdre connaissance ». Il n'y a aucune correction dans le manuscrit, la modification est donc contemporaine de la publication et non de la rédaction. Sur le plan purement littéraire, la figure de l'étranger renvoie, toujours par anticipation, à celle célèbre de Camus (dont d'ailleurs Blanchot sera le premier défenseur) : « Le thème que je reconnais d'abord parce que Camus le rendra familier, est désigné dès les premiers mots : "l'étranger" ». Le manuscrit, ici, ne fait que confirmer l'importance immédiate de cette désignation du personnage. Michael Holland souligne particulièrement ces éléments qui perturbent la datation du texte originel : « L'Idylle, tout en faisant signe vers un passé (1936) s'en trouve séparé et de ce fait, désorienté par rapport à lui, marque l'irruption chez Blanchot d'un espace de narration tout à fait original, dans lequel le désastre qui s'annonce en 1936 pour devenir définitif à partir de 1940 trouve dans le récit de fiction non pas un miroir mais un discours qui, par son impossibilité même, prend la mesure de ce que le désastre signifie. » L'insistance de Blanchot à rejeter sa nouvelle dans un lointain passé, pré - apocalyptique, dès la première parution en 1947, ne laisse pas d'étonner. Il fait de même dans ses dédicaces, précisant l'inactualité de ces récits : « ces pages hélas très anciennes » écrit - il sur les deux exemplaires du Ressassement éternel qu'il adresse à son frère et sa belle - sœur, ainsi qu'à sa sœur et à sa mère (voir notre catalogue de mars 2015) - notons par ailleurs le très énigmatique « hélas ». Mais c'est en 1983, dans Après - coup, qu'insistant encore longuement sur cette ancienneté « ces deux récits anciens, si anciens (une cinquantaine d'année) » ; Blanchot offre une troublante mise en perspective de cette insistance : « récit d'avant Auschwitz. A quelque date qu'il puisse être écrit, tout récit désormais sera d'avant Auschwitz. » Ainsi, l'évocation des camps dans une nouvelle ne peut - elle être que prophétique car : « il ne peut y avoir de récit - fiction d'Auschwitz ». Dès lors, quelle meilleure façon de se soustraire à cette impossibilité que d'écrire avant l'Histoire ? Ce qui ne peut plus être dit peut encore être prédit. Il est tentant de chercher dans le récit même de l'Idylle la trace de cette approche par le passé du présent impossible. Le passage chez le libraire est à cet égard troublant ; celui - ci propose à Akim, « un livre très ancien qui retraçait l'histoire de toute la contrée ». Akim, qui aurait souhaité un ouvrage « plus récent », tire cependant  « de sa lecture plus de profit qu'il n'en avait espéré ». Si l'on ajoute à cela que dès la première visite le « libraire » de la version finale est, dans le manuscrit, « une boutique de livres anciens » et que dans le passage du prêt du livre rare, Blanchot a supprimé de la version publiée : « car [le livre] semblait s'intéresser à une époque depuis longtemps révolue », l'hypothèse d'une datation fictive de la part de l'auteur prend tout son sens.   Si elle était avérée, cette supercherie apporterait bien entendu un éclairage totalement neuf sur cette nouvelle et sur l'œuvre entière de Blanchot.   Cependant, il ne nous paraît pas que le manuscrit puisse, sinon par ces petits détails, être daté d'après la guerre. Le manuscrit correspond en grande partie, par son format, la qualité du papier et la densité d'écriture de Blanchot, au manuscrit du Dernier Mot que nous proposions sur un catalogue précédent (or le Dernier Mot semble être daté avec certitude). D'autre part, il n'est pas daté, or si la date - 1936 - était un élément de fiction, il est probable que Maurice Blanchot l'eut apposée dès le manuscrit. Une étude approfondie de ces documents, de l'écriture de Blanchot et du papier, permettrait toutefois de répondre définitivement à cette question qui participe au mystère du plus énigmatique écrit de Maurice Blanchot.

        Florence Foster Jenkins - Record Humorously Signed and Inscribed by Samuel Barber

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Rare privately issued gramophone recording of Florence Foster Jenkins, inscribed by Barber on the label "This great example of American singing - for Herbert - with warmest greetings / Sam Barber."<br>From the collection of Manfred Ibel (to whom Barber dedicated the piano concerto), but likely inscribed originally to Herbert Graf, stage director at the Metropolitan Opera House from 1936 to 1949.<br>Florence Foster Jenkins, an American girl born in 1868 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to a well-to-do family, has become a legend as "the world's worst opera singer."  She made some vanity 78 rpm records for the Mel-o-tone label during World War Two, and in October 1944 hired Carnegie Hall for a recital.  The bad reviews that resulted from that recital were said to break her heart and she died a few weeks later at age 76, but the recordings have kept her name and her art alive.  In recent years there have been several plays about her, and this year there are three full-length movies.  The first, a French comedy-drama titled "Marguerite" was released earlier this year.  A second produced in Britain and starring Meryl Streep as Jenkins will be released in the USA in a few weeks, and later this year a German docu-drama starring soprano Joyce di Donato as Jenkins will premiere.  Two different full-length biographies of Jenkins have appeared within the last weeks in England, by Darryl Bullock and the other by Jasper Rees.
