        Romans. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      S.n. (Journal des débats) 1943 - - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1943), 13,5x21,5cm & 4 pages in-4, 4 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 4 pages in-8 publiée dans le numéro du 14 Avril 1943 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique littéraire publiée à l'occasion de la parution de Corps et âmes de Maxence Van der Meersch, de Nuages dans la main d'Alice Rivaz, du Village pathétique d'Anré Dhotel et du Coeur anachronique de Dominique Brejon Lavergne. On joint le tapuscrit complet. D'une actualité littéraire hétéroclite et plus ou moins heureuse, Blanchot fait émerger une pensée sur l'écriture et le réel. Sa chronique s'élève de la critique d'un réel qui échoue à devenir littérature (Van der Meersch) vers l'apologie de personnages littéraires qui se heurtent au monde réel (Dhotel), pour évoquer enfin l'excès d'une littérature qui se perd dans ses propre limbes (Brejon Lavergne). Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l'obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu'il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L'Entretien infini" et "L'Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d'une acuité d'analyse dépassant largement l'actualité littéraire qui en motive l'écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d'une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l'écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d'une pensée exercée "au nom de l'autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au coeur même d'un journal "ouvertement maréchaliste": "Brûler un livre, en écrire, sont les deux actes entre lesquels la culture inscrit ses oscillations contraires" (Le Livre, In Journal des Débats, 20 janvier 1943). En 2007, les Cahiers de la NRF réunissent sous la direction de Christophe Bident toutes les chroniques littéraires non encore publiées en volumes avec cette pertinente analyse du travail critique de Blanchot : "romans, poèmes, essais donnent lieu à une réflexion singulière, toujours plus sûre de sa propre rhétorique, livrée davantage à l'écho de l'impossible ou aux sirènes de la disparition. (.) Non sans contradictions ni pas de côté, et dans la certitude fiévreuse d'une oeuvre qui commence (.) ces articles révèlent la généalogie d'un critique qui a transformé l'occasion de la chronique en nécessité de la pensée." (C. Bident). Les manuscrits autographes de Maurice Blanchot sont d'une grande rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Muddy Waters Original Chess Records Publicity Still, SIGNED BY Muddy Waters

      - Muddy Waters, Original Chess Records Publicity Still, boldly SIGNED by the great bluesman to the bottom left margin; 8'" by 10", glossy b & w photo, about fine with a few random surface dings, minimal edge wear and a small pen stroke to the left edge of the verso. The original signature in black marker is fine with just a hint of brushing to the "M". There can be no more apt setting for Water's autograph than this photograph; already in his thirties, Muddy was a virtual unknown upon his arrival in Chicago in 1943, where, like many of his fellow blues musicians, he struggled t o make a career. In 1947, with Sunnyland Slim on piano, he made his first recordings with Leonard Chess, a new producer on the scene, and in the words of music historian Ted Gioia, "Waters [thus] would embark on a partnership with the Chess brothers that would last almost thirty years and transform the sound of postwar blues". Upon hearing of Leonard Chess' sudden death of a heart attack in 1969, Waters, said in tribute: "I think if he was livin', he would say what I'm sayin' now; he made me and I made him". A very scarce and desirable piece of signed blues ephemera, in collector's condition with a Real/Epperson COA. J2042

        The Wide Net and Other Stories

      New York: Harcourt Brace and Company. (1943). First. First edition. Fine in a very near fine dustwrapper with the pink portion of the spine, which is usually faded out to near invisibility, only slightly faded and very easily readable. The only flaw is a vertical pink stain on the spine, possibly the result of a printer's error. Only the third copy we have seen that retains a substantial portion of the pink spine lettering, and rare thus. Author's elusive third book, cheaply manufactured during wartime and virtually never found in this condition. .

        THE WAY SOME PEOPLE LIVE

      Random House (1943), New York - Author's superb first book, a collection of short stories. Minor wrinkling and roughness to front endpaper, likely from the careful removal of a bookplate; otherwise, the book is fine and bright without any of the gutter darkening or spine wear typical to this title. The spine of the dustwrapper has minor wear to the heel with small chips at the head just extending to both panels. Other than minor corner wear and a short closed tear to the rear, the dustwrapper also is superior to the typical example. It is price-clipped but most of the dollar sign still remains. About Fine in a nicer than usual dustwrapper with absolutely no restoration [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Little Prince

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock,, 1943. Translated from the French by Katherine Woods. Quarto. Original pale brown cloth, titles and pictorial design to spine and front board in dark red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a terracotta full morocco solander box, lettering to sine in black and a pictorial block to the front board of The Little Prince in black. Illustrated throughout by the author. Dust jacket chipped and with one short tear, early typed transcript tipped to rear pastedown. First edition in English, a unique presentation copy with double inscription and an original drawing. On the half-title, in ink and watercolour, the author has added a half-page drawing depicting the Little Prince, his scarf flying in the wind, standing in a barren landscape labelled "Terre", the sky with stars and moon above. In a speech bubble, the Prince remarks "Il faut être absolument fou pour avoir choisi cette planète-là! Elle n'est sympathique que la nuit, quand les habitants dorment..." ("You'd have to be completely crazy to have chosen this planet. It is only pleasant at night when the inhabitants are asleep..."). Beneath, Sainte-Exupéry has added another lengthy inscription: "Le Petit Prince avait tort. Il y a sur la terre des habitants dont la droiture, la générosité de coeur consolent de l'avarice et de l'egoïsme des autres. Par example Dorothy Barclay ... Avec mon plus amical souvenir Antoine de Saint-Exupéry" ("The Little Prince was wrong. There are on earth some inhabitants whose straightforwardness, sweetness, and generosity of heart make up for the avarice and egotism of the others. For example, Dorothy Barclay ... With fondest remembrance Antoine de Saint-Exupéry"). "And what do you do with five-hundred millions of stars?" In Chapter 13 of the book, Saint-Exupéry's madly acquisitive businessman has counted as many as 500 million stars before he is interrupted by the Little Prince. How many stars can be seen from the Earth? The question was posed by Saint-Exupéry to a friend, the New York Times reporter Helen Lazeroff, who passed it on to a young assistant, Dorothy Barclay. She in turn telephoned the Hayden Planetarium. In gratitude for her efforts, Saint-Exupéry gave her this very personal gift: one of the very few copies of The Little Prince with a presentation inscription, and the only copy to carry an original drawing of the Little Prince. Inscribed copies are very rare. The manuscript having been composed in Asharoken, New York, Saint-Exupéry's classic was published in both English and French versions in April 1943, just as the author was preparing to leave New York to serve as a pilot in the Free French Air Force, based in North Africa and later, Corsica. Tragically, he never returned from a reconnaissance mission over the Mediterranean, on 31 July 1944.

Housed in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. Kirkpatrick A28a. A Haunted House is a collection of eighteen of Virginia Woolf's short stories, selected and published posthumously by her husband Leonard Woolf. The collection contains a mix of previously published and unpublished stories: six stories from Woolf's 1921 collection Monday or Tuesday (the only collection of short stories published in her lifetime), including "Monday or Tuesday," "A Haunted House," and "Kew Gardens;" six stories previously published in magazines and serial publications, including "The New Dress," "The Shooting Party," and "The Duchess and the Jeweller;" and six previously unpublished stories, including "Moments of Being," "The Man Who Loved His Kind," and "The Legacy." Although it was published after her death in 1941, Leonard Woolf wrote in his foreword that he and Virginia had discussed publishing such a collection and that he "tried to carry out her intention" with A Haunted House. Leonard explains that Virginia primarily wrote short stories "whenever an idea occurred to her" and would "sketch it out in a very rough form" before storing it away to be expanded upon or published later. "A Haunted House" was inspired by Asheham, a small early 19th century house that Vanessa and Virginia jointly rented from 1912-1919. According to passages in both Virginia's and Leonard's diaries, they believed Asheham to be haunted. Asheham House and its surroundings seemed to have had a creative effect on both Vanessa and Virginia; while living there, Vanessa executed paintings that were later shown at the Second Post-Impressionist Exhibition in London, and Virginia finished her first novel The Voyage Out and wrote much of Night and Day. Included in this collection is the short story "The Searchlight"-when Vanessa read it in 1939, she was inspired to illustrate it: "It seems to me lovely - only too full of suggestions for pictures almost. They leap into my mind at every turn. Your writing always does that for me to some extent, but I think this one more than usual." [Vanessa to Virginia, May 1939].. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Good.
