        ORIGINAL ART: RUBBY DUB DUB THREE MEN IN A TUB FROM MOTHER GOOSE

      1939. Paperback. 1. (DENSLOW,W.W.)illus. ORIGINAL ART: RUBBY DUB DUB THREE MEN IN A TUB FROM MOTHER GOOSE. Offered here is a large and wonderful finished pen and ink drawing for Ye Old Time Nursery Rhymes by Mother Goose. Although the book with this title was actually published in 1939 by Baldwin & Strachan in Buffalo when the art was re-discovered (after Denslow's death), the art itself was most likely executed circa 1910 when Denslow was actively illustrating advertising booklets. In their bibliography of Denslow, Greene and Hearn write about this art as follows: "The drawings were discovered in 1939 in the scrapbook of one William W. Reed. Since a man named Horace Reed was connected with Niagra Lithograph Company, it is likely that Denslow drew the pictures for one of his advertising pamphlets. The pictures first appeared in Youth Magazine, a hand-out to patrons of Dodd's Dairy in Buffalo. In issue eleven, this pamphlet was announced as available from Dodd's milkmen for ten cents." Executed on Strathmore drawing board measuring 19 1/2" wide x 14 1/2" high, the image nearly fills the entire space, signed by Denslow with his characteristic seahorse design. This is a rare opportunity to own very fine published work by Denslow.

        Esquisse d'une Théorie des Émotions.

      Hermann & Cie, 1939. Royal 8vo. Bound uncut with the original printed wrappers ("Actualités scientifiques et industrielles", no. 838. Essais philosophiques II, Publiés par Cavaillès), also the backstrip (mounted with a little loss). in an exquisite, beautiful black morocco binding with gilt horizontal and vertical lettering to spine. Beautiful silvered paper over boards. Housed in an exquisite silvered marbled paper slip-case with black morocco edges. Binding signed to bottom of inside of front board: "C. et J-P. Miguet". Near mint copy. 52 pp.. First printing, presentation-copy, of Sartre's highly important early philosophical work, which is recognized as the best introduction to his "L'Étre et le Néant" (1943). The work was only printed as it is here, as no. 838 of Cavaillè's "Actualités scientifiques et industrielles", and only appeared in a new (not revised) edition in 1960. The large presentation-inscription reads as thus : " A Olivier Briot/ en la remerciant de " Les lignes " qui j'ai/ beaucoup aimé/ JP Sartre "."L'Esquisse d'une théorie des émotions " (" Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions"), although now considered one of Sartre's most important works, was originally written as the first part and introduction to a greater work on psychological phenomenology that was supposed to be entitled "La Psyché". The great psychological project was abandoned due to Sartre's eagerness to finish "Le Mur". "L'Esquisse" thus remains the only part of the work ever published, and perhaps exactly because of its introductory character, it has come to have the effect on modern philosophical thought that it has. Due to being at the same time accessible and rigourous, the work is considered the best introduction to Sartre's fundamental philosophical ideas, an almost indispensible presentation of and introduction to "L'Étre et le Néant", which appeared four years later. "L'Esquisse d'une théorie des émotions " is a phenomenological essay on emotion, in which Sartre ettempts to present a phenomenological psychology, treating emotion as a " phenomenon " and placing it within the realm of signification. The primary presentation of his own phenomenological analysis is essantial to all his later philosophy."Although written fairly early in his career, in 1939, Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions is considered to be one of Jean-Paul Sartre's most important pieces of writing. It not only anticipates but argues many of the ideas to be found in his famous Being and Nothingness. By subjecting the emotion theories of his day to critical analysis, Sartre opened up the world of psychology to new and creative ways of interpreting feelings. Emotions are intentional and strategic ways of coping with difficult situations. We choose to utilize them, we control them, and not the other way around, as has been posited elsewhere. Emotions are not fixed; they have no essence and indeed are subject to rapid fluctuations and about-turns. For its witty approach alone, Sartre's Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions can be enjoyed at length. It is a dazzling journey to one of the more intriguing theories of our time." (Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions, 2nd Edition, By Jean-Paul Sartre, Published October 12th 2001 by Routledge - 80 pages, Series: Routledge Classics)

        Le Mur.

      Paris, Gallimard, (1939). Bound uncut with the original printed wrappers, also the back-strip, in a magnificent, elegant, and highly artistic black full calf binding with onlays of blood-red lacquered calf in stipes of varying thickness to all of front and back board as well as to spine, elegantly representing a "wall". Gilt author and title to spine. Inside of boards and recto and verso respectively of free end-papers coved with exquisite red suede and with white calf edges. Hand-sewn capital-bands in red and black. All edges gilt (also the uncut ones). Blindstamped super-ex-libris to inside of front board. Housed in an exquisite chemise with elegant patterned paper in red and grey tones and with black calf spine (same gilding as to binding) and edge, chemise covered with exquisite red suede on the inside, and an elegant slip-case of the same patterned paper, with black morocco edges. Binding signed to bottom of inside of front board: "C. et J-P. Miguet" and to bottom of inside of back board: "2003". A mint copy.. First edition, one of in all 110 numbered copies, of Sartre's first collection of short stories, which are generally accepted as Sartre's greatest existentialist works of fiction and the book as such as his greatest book of fiction. The present copy is one of 20 "outside of commerce" ("hors commerce") copies on alfa paper. In all 110 copies appeared, 40 of which are on on pur fil and 70 on alfa (50 of them numbered 31-80, and 20 hors commerce numbered 81-100). This is number 86.The collection "The Wall" contains the short story "The Wall", which is one of Sartre's most famous and most widely read stories. It coldly depicts a situation in which prisoners are condemned to death. The story takes place during the Spanish Civil War (July 1936 -April 1939). "The Wall" is probably the piece of fiction that best captures Sartre's central philosophical themes and is thus regarded as one of his most important works.The title refers to the wall used by firing squads to execute prisoners, and the deep blood-red of the magnificient "wall"-binding by Miguet is thus particularly well chosen. At the time of its appearance, "Le Mur" was well received, and because of it, Sartre won the price of the "Roman populiste" in April 1940. The work was fiercely attacked by Robert Brasillach in April 1939, but defended in "La Nouvelle Revue Francaise" in May 1939. Among the first reviews of it was Camus' in the "Alger républicain". The publication of "Le Mur" contributed to giving Sartre a reputation of being obscene by those who did not admire his style and courageous writing. By those many of those who do admire him, this is considered some of the best that he ever wrote. Contat & Rybalka: 39/21 (pp. (69)-71)
