Bousquet résumait ainsi ses travaux en Islamologie (dans les mélanges qui lui furent consacrés dans les Cahiers Pareto en 1965) : "Très en gros, on pourrait dire à ce sujet que je suis parti intellectuellement de la Loi rituelle, morale et juridique de l'Islâm (fiqh) et ai essayé de voir dans quelle mesure cette étrange casuistique (dont j'ai traduit de nombreux textes et dont j'ai exposé les règles dans divers ouvrages) est appliquée, ou non, dans les sociétés musulmanes d'Afrique du Nord surtout (mais également en Indonésie). En particulier, mon attention s'est portée sur le rituel ('ibâdates) presque toujours systématiquement négligé par mes prédécesseurs". Français

        Las Islas Invitadas, por.

      Imprenta de Manuel Altolaguirre, Madrid 1936 - Nueva edición aumentada. 9x13. 217pp. 6h. Rústica. Reparación en la bisagra anterior, pérdida de 0,5cm. en el pie del lomo, pero buen ejemplar, interiores muy limpios. En su Ensayo Bibliográfico de 1991, Mesa Toré establece que de los 137 poemas incluidos en esta edición, solamente 4 habían sido incluidos en la primera edición de 1926; otros provienen de otros libros. Sin embargo, incluye este libro en la colección Héroe, aunque no hay ninguna constancia de ello en este ejemplar; en realidad, con su reducido formato, sería, quizás, más acertado considerar esta colección como un primer prototipo de las colecciones El Ciervo Herido y La Verónica de La Habana y México. Creo que es el primer impreso de Altolaguirre en este formato. en la dedicatoria, el poeta impresor ofrece las siguientes palabras: "Imprimiendose esta nueva edición en dramáticos días de lucha, le dedico con todo entusiasmo y gratitud a los heroicos defensores de la libertad y la democracia.", un temprano compromiso con la República en su lucha contra el fascismo. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

        The general theory of employment interest and money.

      London Macmillan and Co 1936 - 8vo., xii + 403 + (1)pp., in the original publisher's cloth lettered gilt. A fine, bright, copy without blemish, but without a dustwrapper. First edition: first issue. One of the iconic books in the development of economic thought by one of the outstanding economists of his generation. 'The composition of this book', Keynes declares, 'has been for the author a long struggle of escape, and so must the reading of it be for most readers if the author's assault upon them is to be successful, - a struggle of escape from habitual modes of thought and expression. The ideas which are here expressed so laboriously are extremely simple and should be obvious. The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds.' [Preface,> p. viii].

        [U.S.A. trilogy, comprising] The 42nd Parallel; [with] 1919; [and] The Big Money

      New York: Harper & Brothers / Harcourt, Brace [through 1936], 1930. First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine+. Three octavo volumes (probably unread), First Printings, in the original publisher's bindings and pictorial dust jackets. The 42nd Parallel: First edition (so stated, with correct A-E code), one of only 7500 copies issued. xii,426pp. Maroon cloth spine, decorative orange paper covers with over-all silver and blue design (one of two variants—no priority established), gilt paper spine label lettered in black, top edge stained orange, plain wove orange end papers. Just about Fine (spine label tarnished, very gently shelf rubbed, but binding tight and square); in better than Near Fine jacket (lightly chipped, spine panel slightly faded, but all lettering quite legible). 1919: First Edition (so stated), one of 10,250 released. viii,473,[1]pp. Orange cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in silver, top edge stained light chocolate. Fine, bright, square and tight; in better than Near Fine jacket, lightly rubbed with a few tiny chips. The Big Money: First Edition (so stated), one of 10,000 copies printed. viii,561,[1]pp. Blue cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in silver. Fine, in just about Fine jacket with light creasing to edges. Provenance: Bonhams Sale 19972, Lot 5175, collection of Michael Lerner with his book labels laid in. Potter 12, 13, 16. Modern Library 100, 23. The 42nd Parallel, first novel in the trilogy, "opens at the dawn of a new century, and introduces both the formal divisions—Newsreel, Camera Eye, biographies, and narratives—as well as many of the characters that reappear throughout all three sections of this monumental work of American modernism. . . . track[ing] the struggles and successes of its five principle characters across an enormous geographic landscape, from the bustling urban space of New York and Chicago, past glimpses at the life of migrant labor in Middle America, to the tumultuous politics of Mexico City. According to Michael Denning, the title refers to 'an 1865 book, American Climatology, which suggested that North American storms followed the 42nd Parallel,' and the 'novel seemed to follow its characters as if they were so many storms crossing the continent.' . . . [Denning] also points out the fateful timeline for Dos Passos’ completion and publication of The 42nd Parallel. Dos Passos finished work on the first volume 'a few weeks before the Wall Street crash,' and the book 'appeared in February 1930.' . . . The 42nd Parallel therefore ends on a narrative precipice for the novel as a whole: the horror of World War I looms on U.S.A’s horizon, just as the collapse of the market economy begins to influence its composition. . . . Largely a novel of World War I, 1919 swings on what Denning calls 'the irony of apparent victory, of winning the war and losing the peace.' . . . As he does throughout U.S.A., Dos Passos intersperses his 'Camera Eye,' 'Newsreel,' and biographic sections within more traditional third person narratives. . . . In The Big Money, America rides the booms and busts of the 1920s towards the close of a tumultuous decade, the looming abyss of the Great Depression, and the novel’s final vision of a divided nation. . . . If Denning is correct in contending that 'U.S.A. is no longer a contemporary novel…It is an epitaph for an America that no longer exists,' the problem of political classes, of a divided American nation surely endures.'"

        Sagittarius Rising.

      London: Peter Davies,, 1936. Octavo. Original grey marl cloth, titles to spine in dark blue. With the dust jacket. Faint foxing to spine, top edge faintly dust toned, light offsetting to endpapers; an excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket with browned spine, nicks to extremities. First edition, first impression, of one of the classics of Great War literature, widely considered as the finest flying memoir of the war, and here offered in the exceptionally uncommon dust jacket. "At seventeen, standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and equipped with a precocious intelligence, Lewis lied about his age to join the Royal Flying Corps. He celebrated his eighteenth birthday in France, flying patrols over the western front at a time when the average life expectancy of a pilot was three weeks. On 1 July 1916 he flew the first patrol of the Somme offensive and witnessed the mile-high column of earth thrown up by the detonation of mines under the German positions. Later he duelled with the 'circus' of Manfred von Richthofen and was the last man to see the aircraft of Albert Ball VC, the allied ace who vanished in a bank of cloud. Lewis also hunted Gotha airships over London by moonlight, and in 1917 he was awarded the Military Cross for continuous bravery" (ODNB). On publication, the book was reviewed in the New Statesman by George Bernard Shaw, who Lewis had encountered while deputy director of programmes at the BBC, and who had permitted him make the first film adaptation of one of his plays. Shaw's high praise guaranteed the book's immediate success: "This is a book everyone should read. It is the autobiography of an ace, and no common ace either … This prince of pilots … had a charmed life in every sense of the word".

A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, which has slight tanning to the spine and wear to the spine ends. Neat internal archival repair to closed tears to the dustwrapper flaps.

        La Realidad y el Deseo. Primeras poesías. Egloga, elegía, oda. Un río, un amor. Los placeres prohibidos. Donde habite el olvido. Invocaciones a las gracias del mundo.

      Ediciones del Arbol, Cruz y Raya, Imprerso por Manuel Altolaguirre, Madrid 1936 - 1ª ed. 11x16.2. 212pp. 5h. Rústica. Alguna tenue marca en las cubiertas (ver fotos), pero muy buen ejemplar, interiores muy limpios, sin óxido, ni firmas ni subrayados. Este es el cuarto libro del poeta sevillano y recoge su obra poética desde 1924, y es un libro muy raro, escasamente encontrable en comercio; el CCPB recoge 4 ejemplares, 2 de los cuales están en la BNE, hay otros 5 (!) en la Residencia de Estudiantes - vaya lujo. WorldCat, por alguna razón, no recoge ninguno de estos, pero me pregunta si me interesa buscar 'crub realised desex cornada?'; suena un poco a los pequeños anuncios que se encontraban de antes en las cabinas de teléfonos públicos de algunos barrios de Londres, así que no me atrevo por si acaso. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.
