        David M Crook

      London: Faber and Faber limited, 1943 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 4th Edition. [4] pp 5-104 A wartime reprint of David M Crook's autobiographical account of his role as a Spitfire pilot in the Battle of Britain with a letter laid in. The note was written twelve months before Crook died in the air at the end of 1944 and is written on a sheet of paper roughly torn from an exercise book. Crook apologises for the paper at the foot of the page: 'Excuse paper - written at the aerodrome'. Dated 17 December 1943 and with the address R.A.F. Kingstown Carlisle, Crook writes to a Mr Thompson to thank him for his letter, noting that 'I've been away' and makes arrangement for what was probably a lecture to the Royal Observer Corps agreeing 'to come to Wigton on January 9 - the only difficulty being transport, as I have no car now and being Sunday I don't suppose the buses will be much use. Do any your people come out from Carlisle by car?', signing the letter in full. At this time Crook was training fighter pilots at RAF Kingstown in nearby Carlisle. He would die in 1944 while flying a Spitfire during a high level reconnaisance mission off the Scottish coast; his name appears on the Runnymede memorial. As one of the 'few' Crook recorded six kills and was one of nine 'aces' in 609 West Riding Squadron during the Battle of Britain. The book has the signature of Crook's correspondent on the first blank: 'J Thompson The 'Cottage' Kirkbride' with biographical notes about his friend below including the fact that he lecture for the Royal Observer Corps, 'at Carlisle Wigton...'

        Gideon Planish [Signed]

      New York: Random House, 1943. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (quite mildly askew, a light touch of fading to the topstain), married to a Very Good dust jacket (mild edge wear and small chipping at the panel corners, presumably some expert light repair to the spine head and to a short closed tear to the front panel's top edge), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the first front free endpaper; a novel centered on a social climber with a knack for public speaking who becomes involved in shady, ostensibly philanthropic, organizations in order to obtain a high social status. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humor, new types of characters." Of him, H.L. Mencken wrote: "[If] there was ever a novelist among us with an authentic call to the trade ... it is this red-haired tornado from the Minnesota wilds." In our experience, signed copies of the book are not at all common. An altogether Very Good to Very Good + copy, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS.

        Pantagruel

      1943. DERAIN, André. Les Horribles et Espovantables Faictz et Prouesses du Très Renommé Pantagruel, Roy des Dipsodes, fils du Grand Géant Gargantua [The Horrible and Terrifying Deeds and Words of the Very Renowned Pantagruel King of the Dipsodes, Son of the Great Giant Gargantua]. Text by Francois Rabelais. [2], 187, [11] pp. Illustrated with a total of 179 unsigned woodcuts printed in colour, including: 39 full-page colour woodcuts, 89 smaller colour woodcuts, 34 colour-printed initials, and 17 colour-printed decorative ornaments. Folio, 350 x 280 mm, bound loose as issued in the original wrappers with title-label on front cover, preserved in original vellum-backed chemise in cardboard slipcase. Paris: Albert Skira, 1943. |~||~||~| Derain's Pantagruel is considered to be one the landmarks of modern book illustration. It was a remarkable publishing event, being created and produced in Paris in the middle of the Second World War. Inspired by Medieval playing cards, Derain spent two years working on the 179 woodcuts for this book. Instead of using separate blocks for individual colours, each woodcut was printed from a single block with all colours applied à la poupée. As is also true with Matisse's Jazz, that process resulted in each pull of each woodcut being akin to a monotype, offering a unique impression of the image. The original Pantagruel by Rabelais was published around 1532. It was so full of vulgarities, scatological humor, and irreverent behavior, that it was immediately condemned by the church and deemed obscene by the Sorbonne, guaranteeing the book's enduring popularity! "As the initiator of Fauve painting, which stunned the world at the Salon d'Automne of 1905, Derain stood shoulder to shoulder with Henri Matisse (1869-1954)…. Derain also created designs for opera, theater, and ballet; most notably Diaghilev's Le Boutique fantasque (1919). During World War II, when the Germans invaded France, Derain's home was requisitioned and his preliminary blocks for Pantagruel were locked away for several years. Ultimately, he was allowed back into the house and somehow able to import the enormous amount of paper needed to print nearly 3000 pages for the edition of 275 copies" (Julie L. Mellby "Graphic Arts, Exhibitions, acquisitions, and other highlights from the Graphic Arts Collection, Princeton University Library" online). The coloured illustrations were printed by Lacouriere, the great French craftsman best known for his work with copper plates. This copy is limited to 275. The colophon signed by Derain. The Artist and the Book 81. From Manet to Hockney 111. Skira 91. Rauch 38. Garvey & Wick, The Arts of the French Book 1900-1965, 27. Logan 118.

        Les treize formes d'un roman. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      Autograph manuscript of the author of 2 and a half pages in-4 published in the issue dated 26 May 1943 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Full typescript is attached. Each chapter of the novel by Roland Cailleux, Saint-Genes or short life, has a different narrative form. This is an opportunity for Blanchot return on the value of this literary audacity initiated a few years earlier by Joyce: "The novel is shown here with all its chances, he metamorphosed into everything could be. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of the intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" his first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that develop later Many in these essays, "The Share of fire" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrates a sharp analysis far beyond the current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classical and modern writers of the first order and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking which will mark the second half of the twentieth. Transformed by writing and by war, Blanchot breaks, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of an "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric, delivered more to echo the impossible or the lure of extinction. (...) Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal the genealogy of a critic who has transformed during the chronicle necessity of thought. " (C. Bident). The autograph manuscripts of Maurice Blanchot are of great rarity. S.n. (Journal des débats) s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1943) 13,5x21,5cm & 3 1/2 pages in-4 4 1/2 pages in-8

      Autograph manuscript of the author of four and a half pages 8vo published in the issue dated 18-19 December 1943 in the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Chronic literary published on the occasion of the publication of "The Guest" by Simone de Beauvoir. Typescript is complete seal. Important analysis of the first novel by Simone de Beauvoir. As usual, Blanchot sweeps the narrative of the novel contingency to extract the essence "phenomenological". It outlines the philosophical correspondence between the work of Beauvoir and Sartre. Following Nausea and Flies, Blanchot sees to Stay "an illustration of the analyzes Jean-Paul Sartre devoted to our" living for others "and that illuminate, a beautifully clear, one of most knotted darkest of human reality. "dramas Ignoring the autobiographical "threesomes" the novel that keeps most critics, Blanchot reveals the true subversion of the invitation: "Can we get rid of others Perhaps, if by action that we claim entirely, we manage to be conscious of our freedom. " A thinly veiled reference to the news of the day which is reflected in the interpretation of murdering Xaviere: "The slave does not become the master, because it kills the master, but because the killing, he risks what he was previously a slave, his life, his quiet, easy harmony with the world. " Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on new books.

        Destination Tokyo

      New York: D. Appleton-Century. 1943. First. First edition. Owner name, and a touch of soiling to the boards, a near fine copy in a not quite very good dustwrapper with sunning at the spine, slight loss and a small stain at the crown, and some other small chips and tears. Second WWII novel by the hardboiled author of I Wake Up Screaming. A wartime book that apparently got little distribution. Basis for the excellent 1944 Delmer Daves-directed film featuring Cary Grant, John Garfield, and Alan Hale. Considered one of the best, and most action-filled WWII films, it remains a classic war drama to this day. .
