        Epreuves tapuscrites de Faux Pas intitulées digressions.

      1943. - 1943, en feuilles. - Molte correzioni. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Tapuscrit recto seul, présentant des biffures et des corrections autographes à l'encre noire. En ouverture de la troisième partie, « Digressions sur le roman », huit feuillets manquent : « Mallarmé et l'art du roman », paginés de 128 à 135.   Début 1943, Gaston Gallimard et Dionys Mascolo proposent à Maurice Blanchot de publier en volume une sélection de ses chroniques littéraires. En mai 1943, l'ouvrage, sous le titre de Digressions, est autorisé par la Commission de contrôle du papier d'édition de Vichy. Mais, avant la fin de l'été, Blanchot décide d'en changer le nom, en témoigne une lettre datée du 30 août de Mascolo à la secrétaire de la Commission, Mme Antelme (alias Marguerite Duras) : « Le texte des "Digressions" autorisé en mai (n° 18159) paraîtra sous le titre de "Faux - Pas". » Toutefois, Blanchot conservera le terme de digression pour baptiser trois de ses parties : « Digressions sur la poésie », « Digressions sur le roman » et « Digressions sans suite ».   Ce jeu d'épreuves, corrigé entre le mois de mai et le mois d'août 1943, révèle un stade intermédiaire et passionnant de la conception du livre. En effet, il dévoile la nécessité du choix consciencieux des articles (qui met davantage l'accent sur les luttes de l'écrivain à l'œuvre que sur le renouveau ou l'actualité de la création) et de leur ordonnancement, ainsi que l'effort d'harmonisation du texte. Ces épreuves montrent que Blanchot a alors sélectionné cinquante chroniques parues les années précédentes dans Le Journal des Débats, mais aussi dans L'Insurgé et La Revue française des idées et des œuvres : quatre, qui ne paraîtront qu'aux mois de juillet, août et septembre 1943 dans la presse (« Le mythe d'Oreste », « Le mythe de Phèdre », « Poésie et langage » et « Après Rimbaud »), seront ajoutées au cours des dernières semaines précédant la publication de l'ouvrage en décembre. Mais Blanchot a d'ores et déjà établi le découpage en quatre grands ensembles : le livre s'ouvrira sur une première partie consacrée à l'expérience intérieure et à la question du langage, introduite par un remarquable texte inédit qui s'intitule encore « Un écrivain qui écrit : "Je suis seul" » et qui deviendra « De l'angoisse au langage ». La deuxième partie sera dédiée à la poésie, la suivante, au roman, et la dernière, plus hétéroclite, traitera à la fois de Goethe, Claudel ou Gide. Les corrections autographes de la pagination et des numéros de chapitres témoignent de ce minutieux travail de construction imposé par un tel ouvrage, le premier recueil critique de Blanchot, qu'il refuse de concevoir comme une simple compilation. Quant aux corrections dans le corps du texte, elles visent notamment à supprimer les informations jugées journalistiques et les passages au ton trop docte : par exemple, « Le Journal de Kierkegaard, dont vient de publier en un premier volume des extraits qui se rapportent aux années 1834 à 1846 (éditions Gallimard) » disparaît au profit d'une formulation allégée. Elles montrent surtout le souci stylistique de Blanchot, qui ne cesse de reprendre certaines formulations, s'affirmant déjà comme un critique - écrivain : « L'écrivain se trouve dans cette condition de plus en plus comique de n'avoir rien à écrire, de n'avoir aucun moyen de l'écrire et d'être contraint par une nécessité extrême de toujours l'écrire. N'avoir rien à exprimer doit être pris dans le sens le plus simple. Quoi qu'il veuille dire, ce n'est rien. Le monde, les choses, le savoir ne lui sont que des points de repère à travers le vide. Et lui - même est déjà réduit à rien. Le rien est sa matière. Il rejette les formes par lesquelles elle s'offre à lui comme étant quelque chose. Il veut la saisir non dans une allusion mais dans sa vérité propre. Il la recherche comme le non qui n'est pas non à ceci, à cela, à tout, mais le non pur et simple. »

        CELLINI SMITH: DETECTIVE.

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1943., 1943. First edition. First edition. Author's third mystery novel. Fine in dust jacket with light professional restoration to spine ends, corners, and extremities. A Cellini Smith novel in which he is hired by a group of hoboes to solve the murder of a young hobo, Danny Meade. The hoboes are certain that local members of a rival hobo organization, known as the "Ramblers" are the likely suspects. The motive in the case involves the location of a deposit of tungsten ore, a material needed for the war effort. Much of the action takes place in a burlesque theater, giving Reeves another opportunity to display his knowledge of show business. On July 22, 1942, a thirty-year-old bachelor named Robert Reeves, enlisted in the U. S. Army. Eventually he was assigned to the Army Air Corps, serving in the 500th Bombardment Squadron of the 345th Bombardment Group. While in the service, Reeves continued to write and in the years 1943 to 1945, he had one novel, CELLINI SMITH: DETECTIVE, and three short stories published. His unit, the 500th Bomb Squadron, flew B-25 medium bombers on combat missions in the South Pacific from June 1943 to the end of the war. Official records show that Reeves died on July 11, 1945, only a month before the war ended. The Armchair Detective, Volume 18, Number 2, page 188 says, "Although now virtually forgotten, Robert Reeves was a talented mystery novelist and an important BLACK MASK writer. His untimely death cut short a career which had the potential of becoming a notable one." An exceptional copy of a difficult title.

Overall, a very clean and pleasing copy. Housed together in a custom folding box with Herbert Dingle's Mechanical Physics. This copy of The Air Cadet's Handbook on How to Pilot an Aeroplane comes from the library of Ernest Hemingway. As was typical with the books in his collection, this copy bears Hemingway's pencil ownership inscription. The Air Cadet's Handbook on How to Pilot an Aeroplane is a how-to manual on flying, published as the fourth installment of the Air Cadet's Handbook series. As the publishers explain, "Between these covers, you will find all you need to know to make you a safe and efficient pilot." with Mechanical Physics. London: Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1943.

Indeed, as Dingle explains in his preface, this book "aims at giving a vivid general picture of the present state of physical knowledge and a practical understanding of what it means." Notably, these books are indicative of Hemingway's strong interest in the mechanics and practicalities of flying airplanes. This interest was both inspired by and intrinsically connected to his experiences as a war correspondent. Indeed, in "London Fights the Robots," his 1944 article for Collier's Weekly about R.A.F. pilots, Hemingway boldly professes: "There isn't any woman and there isn't any horse that is as lovely as a great airplane, and men who love them are faithful to them even though they leave them for others."

        Complete currency set in use at the concentration camp of Theresienstadt (1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 kronen)

      Der Alteste der Juden, Theresienstadt 1943 - This complete seven-piece currency set from the notorious Theresienstadt camp sheds light on the elaborate sham by the Nazi propaganda machine to present Terezin as a "model camp."Even though no normal trade and business activities were possible in concentration camps, it was not uncommon to see local notes and tokens. As soon as deportees arrived they had to exchange all their money, bonds and shares into "local currency." At the camp of Theresienstadt located North of Prague and in the old stronghold of Terezin, the notes were divided into the following seven denominations: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 kronen - the krone being the currency of Bohemia and Moravia. All those different values had the same design, but differed in size and color.* The notes were designed in 1942 by Czech artist, poet and inmate Peter Kien** (who died in Auschwitz in 1944). The primary design was a vignette of Moses holding the Ten Commandments and it was approved in the first instance by Jacob Edelstein, the Chief of Theresienstadt's Council of Elders. His original design of Moses' portrait was approved by the Council of Jewish Elders and the camp commandant but not by Adolf Eichmann, head of the Gestapo Department for Jewish Affairs. He considered Moses too Aryan in appearance and ordered that he should be portrayed with a prominent hooked nose and curly hair. Eichmann also required that Moses' hand obscure the commandment "Thou shalt not kill," and that the denominations be changed from "Ghetto Kronen" to just "Kronen." The front of the notes has a vignette of Moses holding the tablets of the Ten Commandments at left. In the centre are the words "Quittung Über" (Receipt for), the denomination in words then the denomination in numerals and a warning against counterfeiting. At the lower right is the denomination in numerals and a six pointed Star of David. The back of the notes includes the same "Quittung über" followed by the denomination. The place and date at lower left and the title - the first Elder of the Jews in Theresienstadt - and signature of Jakob Edelstein are at lower right. At left is the denomination in figures and Star of David and upper left the serial number (20, 50, 100 kr) or plate letter and number (1, 2, 5, 10 kr). The notes were dated 1st January 1943 but the first distribution was not made until May 12 1943. Although a good mean to bolster the ruse of normality within Theresienstadt, the notes had no real economic value but could be used to pay certain taxes, amongst others those on packages entering the camps (above the taxes already paid by the sender). Camp shops were only shop windows and, ironically, those windows were mostly filled with objects seized from the Jews at their arrival in the ghettos. Life in the ghetto had little in common with the note's lavish design. Almost all inmates perished or were transported to Auschwitz. More than 140.000 Jews have been transported to Theresienstadt. At the time of its liberation on May 8, 1945 only a little more than 17,000 starving and terrorized inmates were found.The notes - all uncirculated - are in very good condition, at the exception of the minor following flaws: Minor and sporadic foxing on the 10 kronen note. A small smudge at verso of the 20 kronen note. Slight creasing at upper front corner of the 50 kronen note. * 1 kronen (green): Number printed: 2,242,000; Size: 3 7/8 x 2" (98 x 49mm); Series letters: A & plate number 2 kronen (red): Number printed: 1,019,000; Size: 4 1/4 x 2 1/8" (107 x 53mm); Series letters: A & plate number 5 kronen (brown): Number printed: 530,000; Size: 4 1/2 x 2 1/4" (113 x 57mm); Series letters: A & plate number 10 kronen (blue): Number printed: 456,000; Size: 4 7/8 x 2 1/2" (124 x 62mm); Series letters: A & plate number 20 kronen (green): Number printed: 319,000; Size: 5 1/8 x 2 5/8" (130 x 67mm); Series letters: A-R & serial number 50 kronen (blue): Number printed: 159,000; Size: 5 1/2 x 2 3/4" (139 x 70mm); Series letters: A-H & serial

        NAZI MASSACRES OF THE JEWS & OTHERS : SOME PRACTICAL PROPOSALS FOR IMMEDIATE RESCUE MADE BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY AND LORD ROCHESTER IN SPEECHES ON MARCH 23RD 1943 IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS

      London : Victor Gollancz,. 1943. Paperback. 1st Edition. Original Paper Wrappers. 8vo. [16] pages ; 19 cm. In English. In this historic speech, Temple concludes, ?My chief protest is against procrastination of any kind? The Jews are being slaughtered at the rate of tens of thousands a day on many days. We know that what we can do is small compared with the magnitude of the problem, but we cannot rest so long as there is any sense among us that we are not doing all that might be done. We have discussed the matter on the footing we are not responsible for this great evil? but it is always true that the obligations of decent men are decided for them by contingencies which they did not themselves create? We stand at the bar of history, of humanity, and of God. ? Holocaust-era speeches by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Rochester made to the House of Lords outlining ongoing atrocities and calling for the British government to approach the problem of resettling Jewish refugees with more urgency. ?William Temple (1881?1944) was a bishop in the Church of England. He served as Bishop of Manchester (1921?29) , Archbishop of York (1929?42) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1942?44) . A renowned teacher and preacher, Temple is perhaps best known for his 1942 book Christianity and Social Order, which set out an Anglican social theology and a vision for what would constitute a just post-war society?. Against the background of persecution of Jewish people during World War II, Temple jointly founded with Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice in Britain. In March 1943, Temple addressed the House of Lords, urging action to be taken on the atrocities being carried out by Nazi Germany. ? (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S) : Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) .

Aber für alle diese Lager gelten bestimmte hygienische Grundforderungen, die auch bei einer Einschränkung auf das Notwendigste eingehalten werden müssen" / "Jedem neu eintretenden Arbeiter ist ein mit frischem Stroh und sauberen Bezügen versehenes Bett zu geben. Für je 20 Arbeiter ist mindestens ein Abort vorzusehen, der gesundheitlich und sittlich einwandfrei sein muss. Für die Arbeitslager der Ostvölker gelten noch besondere Gesichtspunkte. Die nationale Einheit des deutschen Volkes erfordert die klare Abtrennung von Volksfremden. Der Einsatz volksfremder Arbeiter und Arbeiterinnen in unseren Bauern- und Stadtfamilien mit Verpflegung und Unterbringung in den einzelnen Haushaltungen ist aus volkspolitischen und rassenhygienischen Gründen bedenklich.

        The Lady in the Lake

Publisher's pale green cloth, lettered in dark green; in the original pictorial black dust jacket designed by Norman Reeves, with an illustration to the front panel of a white house on a purple mountain with shadowy figures at the foot, lettered in pale pink. A beautiful copy, with just a hint of toning to the extremities, else bright and clean; unclipped dust jacket, with some minor rubbing to the extremities, very faint toning to the spine, closed tears and creasing to the flap folds, some light soiling to the rear panel, otherwise fresh and clean, without the usual chipping. Overall, a very bright and attractive copy. Scarce with a dust jacket in such excellent condition. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Bruccoli A.4.1.a. Published on November 1, 1943, The Lady in the Lake takes Detective Philip Marlowe out of Los Angeles, his usual stomping grounds, to investigate the disappearance of a wealthy businessman's estranged wife Crystal. The investigation quickly becomes complicated when the man Crystal claimed to have run off with is also unaware of her whereabouts, and Chandler adds stolen identities, police corruption, and a shootout with American sentries to further twist the plot. As with many of his novels, Chandler based The Lady in the Lake's plot on various short stories he had previously written for literary magazines such as The Atlantic Monthly and Black Mask. Unlike Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op and Sam Spade, who are widely considered the archetypal hard-boiled detective figures, Marlowe possesses a sensitivity underneath his tough exterior that distinguishes him from similar detective characters in the genre. In 1947, The Lady in the Lake was adapted into a film starring Robert Montgomery, Audrey Totter, and Lloyd Nolan.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

FIRST EDITION AND A SCARCE SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY, inscribed by Frost to Virginia Proctor, secretary to Harvard President James Byrant Conant. Though Frost tenure at Harvard was short, his friendship with Mrs. Proctor lasted well beyond his years in Cambridge. It was President Conant who first cited Frost as "The Poet of New England" when Frost was given an honorary degree of Litt.D. in 1937. In 1938 Frost resigned from Amherst and was elected to Harvard's Board of Overseers and that year also saw him placed in the English department at the university. Conant reappointed Frost for the years 1939 through 1942. Though Frost's formal ties with Harvard would end in that year, his association with Virginia Proctor would continue for years following. The inscription on this book reads, "To Virginia Proctor / From her old friend/ Robert Frost / Bread Loaf (VT.) August 1944" Like the first edition, this collection contains all the poems from NORTH OF BOSTON, NEW HAMPSHIRE, and A FURTHER RANGE as well as selections from A BOY'S WILL, MOUNTAIN INTERVAL, and WEST-RUNNING BROOK but added to it is a selection of poems from A WITNESS TREE

        Ayn Rand Signed Photograph.

      Large signed photography of Ayn Rand. Inscribed, "To Carl Schaefer--Cordially-- Ayn Rand 8/18/48." The photograph measures 11 inches by 14 inches. Matted and framed, which measures 17.5 inches by 20.5 inches. Photographs signed by Rand are exceptionally rare. Ayn Rand is known for her two best-selling novels, The Fountainhead (1943) and Atlas Shrugged (1957), and for developing a philosophical system called Objectivism. "From 1943 until its publication in 1957, [Rand] worked on the book that many say is her masterpiece, Atlas Shrugged. This novel describes how a genius named John Galt grows weary of supporting a society of ungrateful parasites and one day simply shrugs and walks away. He becomes an inspiration to like-minded men and women, all of whom eventually follow his example, until society, in its agony, calls them back to responsibility and respect. Again [as with Rand's novel The Fountainhead in 1943] reviews were unsympathetic, and again people bought the book" (ANB). By 1984 more than five million copies of Atlas Shrugged had been sold, and in a 1991 Library of Congress survey Americans named it second only to the Bible as the book that had most influenced their lives.

        Autograph letter signed in full to an unidentified male correspondent regarding the production of his opera Bolivar

      Completed in 1943 during his American exile, Bolivar premièred at the Opéra de Paris seven years later, on May 12, 1950. As this and other letters indicate, Milhaud had originally composed his opera to suit American tastes, and "worked hard to convince American opera houses to take it on." In April 1944 he wrote to music librarian Harold Spivacke: "I played my opera Bolivar to the Metropolitan. They seemed (as Lily Pons told me) very interested, but they do not have the money to produce it." (Annegret Fauser in Sounds of War: Music in the United States during World War II, pp. 194-195.) It therefore seems likely that this letter was addressed to Edward Johnson, General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera from 1935 until 1950. "... the subject of Bolivar suited me admirably because I wanted a libretto full of action, with a masculine hero. Moreover, the central idea of the play was that of liberation and freedom, which in 1943 occupied my every thought... In May 1950 the Paris Opéra put on my Bolivar... The Opéra's best singers took part: Jeannine Micheau, Hélène Bouvier, Roger Bourdin, and Giraudeau. The production by Max de Rieux was superb, and Fernard Léger's ten sets again attested to his great theatrical artistry..." Milhaud: Notes without Music An Autobiography pp. 301 and 314. Milhaud "was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. An interesting assemblage of documents relating to this war-time work.. 1 page. Large octavo. Dated Mills College, Oakland, California, September 9, 1943. In black ink. In French (with translation). Milhaud asks his correspondent if he is still interested in mounting a production of his opera Bolivar. The composer would like to meet him in New York to show him the score. "When I had the pleasure of seeing you last December, you seemed interested in the possibility of producing my opera Bolivar. My score is finished. I intend to come to New York in December to show it to you." Slightly worn and soiled; creased at folds; small staple holes to upper left edge; small ink stain to verso. Together with: - A typed cast list. 1 page. Large octavo. On onion skin. In French. With autograph annotations in English in black ink describing the relative importance of each character. Slightly worn and creased; small staple holes to upper left margin. - A typed list of scenes describing the important events in Bolivar's life. 1 page. Large octavo. On onion skin. In English. A brief biography of Jules Supervielle, author of the play upon which the opera is based, is given at the head.
