        Le mythe d'Oreste. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      Autograph manuscript of the author of four and a half pages in-8 published in the issue dated 27 July 1943 of the Journal of Debates and resumed the same year in Faux-Pas. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Important literary chronicle of the work of Jean-Paul Sartre and especially his last piece of theater: Flies. Full typescript is attached. 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 In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric,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 & 4 pages in-4 4 1/2 pages in-8

        Manuscript Notebook documenting 162 numbered dates with girls, with specific activities, locations, and the author's assessments of every date

      1943-1947, [Berkeley, CA] 1943 - Spiral notebook, approx. 5.75 x 3.75 inches, completed rectos only in ink in a neat, legible hand. Manuscript account of the loves and losses of an unnamed Berkeley Teenage Casanova, from 1943 to 1947, meticulously recording the girls’ names, contact information, what they did on the dates (movies seen, diners visited, picnics, parties, UC Berkeley sporting events, etc.) and a brief assessment of each date ("enjoyable," "she likes to talk," "never enjoyed dancing so much," "no comment," "alright," "it's slow but sure"). This teenage "player" is no doubt a UC Berkeley student; certainly he has a car which he parks on UC Berkeley campus. The diary documents an innumerable stream of girls; a large part of the text describes he rise and fall of an extended romance with Marilyn is charted in detail, from "If we were a bit older, one would say that we’re engaged" through "undoubtedly she’d have enjoyed herself more with a trained dog – which I’m not!" to "at long last the embers have turned black!" At the end of the diary, on Sept. 12, 1946, the author is 19 years old. His dates are young; in some instances very young: writing on April 20, 1946, the author states that in 18 months Marilyn is going to be 17 (sic). As the diarist concludes philosophically at the end of his notebook: "And thus I end this, the first report on girls that I know, or in many cases have known. I close with the realization that my search is not yet over. And so I look forward to new faces and new loves." A fascinating look at romantic mores during the sociological dawn of the Teenager. Very good antiquarian condition

        A love letter from Iwo Jima Flag Raiser Rene Gagnon to his future wife from the Marine Corps Recruit Depot ? ?Its almost unbelievable to think that I havent seen you in over a month, before I used to think it was bad when I didn?t get to kiss you at least once during an evening ??

      Parris Island, South Carolina, June 27, 1943. 7" x 10.25". "Rare Autograph Letter Signed ?Rene,? 4 pages, 7? x 10.25?, front and verso. Parris Island, S.C., June 27, 1943. To ?Darling Kiddo,? his future wife, Pauline Harnois. Toning. Fine condition. In part, ?Right now I am sitting in my bunk, and writing to you as a matter of fact, we spend almost all day Sunday in our bunks we're either sleeping or sitting down and cleaning our rifles ... Tonight we might go to the movies ?" but I doubt it. Boy you'll never know how much I miss you, I wish that I could take you along with we when I am shipped to my new post, but I guess that is impossible so, I'll just have to dream of how nice it would be to have you along ... While on furlough I've got to go to Boston 1 day on business for the Marine Corp. I will go up on the 3 or 4 oclock bus in the afternoon so if you can come up with me we can go dancing after I?ve reported at the Recruiting Station. We can bring Helen [her sister] along to that is if she wants to go. If you don?t come up with me I?ll have to go anyways and that would mean that we?ve spoiled a whole evening, while we?ve got the chance to be together we might as well take it. Gee whiz I can hardly believe it in a little more than two weeks we?ll be skating together. Its almost unbelievable to think that I havent seen you in over a month, before I used to think it was bad when I didn?t get to kiss you a[t] least once during an evening ... You must know I love you as ever Rene. P.S. The ones who make the most score when we shoot for record will get a P.V.C. stripe - So please say a little prayer for me will you X Thanks.'' In 1943, 18-year-old Rene Gagnon was drafted and elected to join the Marine Corps Reserve on May 6, 1943. He was sent to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina. On July 16, 1943, 19 days after writing this letter from Parris Island, Gagnon was promoted to Private First Class. On April 8, 1944, he was transferred to the 2nd Battalion, 28th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division. In September, the 5th division left Camp Pendleton for further training at Camp Tarawa, Hawaii, for the assault on Iwo Jima by three Marine divisions of the V Amphibious Corps. On February 23, 1945, atop Mt. Suribachi on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima, six American soldiers ?" five Marines and one Navy corpsman ?" planted the American flag. Joe Rosenthal of the Associated Press was awarded the 1945 Pulitzer Prize in Photography ?for his photograph of the Marines planting the American flag on Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima.? After President Franklin D. Roosevelt continued to see the AP photograph in newspapers across the country, he issued a Presidential Order: ?Transfer immediately by air to Washington, D.C. the 6 men who appear in the Rosenthal photograph of flag raising at Mt. Suribachi.? What he didn?t know was that three of the soldiers, all Marines, had died at Iwo Jima: Sergeant Michael Strank, Corporal Harlon Block, and Private First Class Franklin Sousley.On May 14, 1945, under the slogan ?The Mighty Seventh,? the 7th United States War Loan drive officially began. Marine Private First Class Rene A. Gagnon, Marine Private First Class Ira H. Hayes, and Pharmacists Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley toured the nation with the tattered American flag they helped raise on Mt. Suribachi three months earlier. The drive continued for seven weeks until June 30, 1945. In Baltimore, on July 7,1945, Rene Gagnon (1925-1979) and Pauline Harnois (1926-2006) were married.On November 7, 1954, the three survivors of the flag raising met for the last time at the dedication of the 78-foot tall Marine Corps War Memorial based upon Joe Rosenthal?s Pulitzer prizewinning photograph."

      Jonathan Cape, London. 1943 - First edition. Octavo. 446 pages. Issued without rear endpapers. The book is divided into two sections: ''The Reader over Your Shoulder'' (206 pages of general instruction) and ''Examinations and Fair Copies'', in which passages selected from the works of the foremost authors of the day are (savagely) taken apart, analysed and rewritten in more elegant English. Each exercise is concluded with a comment on the author. Those subjected to this treatment include: T.S. Eliot, Eric Partridge, an editor of The Oxford English Dictionary, F.R. Leavis, J.M. Keynes, Clive Bell, Daphne du Maurier, Major-General J.F.C. Fuller, Ernest Hemingway, Aldous Huxley, Cecil Day Lewis, George Bernard Shaw, Stephen Spender, Ezra Pound, Herbert Read, I.A. Richards, Bertrand Russell, H.G. Wells et al.The dedication copy, inscribed by one of the authors on the front free endpaper: ''Jenny Nicholson with love from Robert Graves 1943''. The printed dedication reads, ''To Jenny Nicholson''. The recipient is Graves's daughter who was a journalist, and one wonders whether, by using ''to'' instead of the blander ''for'', he is making some sort of point.Fore-edge spotted. Cloth a bit bubbled. Very good in very good, nicked, rubbed and dusty dustwrapper a bit tanned at the spine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Address By Winston S Churchill Prime Minister of Great Britain Delivered Before Members of the Congress of the United States - 19 May 1943, signed by Churchill

      Stamford Connecticut: The Overbrook Press, 1943. Limited Edition, signed. Hardcover. This is the scarce limited edition of Churchill's 19 May 1943 address to the U.S. Congress, the only copy signed by Churchill we have offered. Churchill's signature in black appears on the first free endpaper. This was Churchill's second address to Congress, seventeen long months of war having passed in the interval since his first, just after Pearl Harbor. Churchill's address came only days after the Allies' total victory in Tunisia. Allied victory in North Africa not only removed Nazi Germany from Africa, but also cleared the way for invasion of Sicily and opened a vital route via North Africa for Stalin to be sent promised supplies - politically important, particularly given the strain placed upon Allied relations by discovery of the Katyn massacre. Churchill departed for the four-day voyage to the United States aboard the Queen Mary on 6 May. From the 11th on, Churchill was with Roosevelt in Washington and at "Shangri-La", the President's Allegheny mountains retreat, discussing and planning the course of the war. Churchill nonetheless took considerable time to prepare this address to Congress. "Churchill spent most of May 18 preparing the speech for the United States Congress. Beginning that morning at 9:30, he dictated until 4:30 in the afternoon... There was then further dictation from midnight until 2:30 in the morning: a total of nine and a half hours dictation." (Gilbert, Volume VII, pages 408-409) Churchill's task was to continue to reinforce common cause, unified strategy, and mutual resolve. "I do not intend to be responsible for any suggestion that the war is won or will soon be over." Churchill cautioned, invoking, for his American audience, the prolonged outcome of the U.S. Civil War. "No one after Gettysburg doubted which way the dread balance of war would incline. Yet far more blood was shed after the Union victory at Gettysburg than in all the fighting which went before." Churchill concluded: "By singleness of purpose, by steadfastness of conduct, by tenacity and endurance, such as we have so far displayed, by these, and only by these, can we discharge our duty to the future of the world and to the destiny of man." This edition was limited to 600 copies specifically for members of Congress, published in September 1943, and is the first volume appearance of this speech. This edition is both more scarce and more elaborate than the publisher's limited edition of Churchill's first address to Congress. The binding is black paper covered boards with a red, gilt-stamped label inset on the front cover. The binding measures 10.5 x 7.5 inches. The contents are printed in red and black on thick stock. The two-page Colophon Note includes excerpts from Churchill's 8 June 1943 address to the House of Commons upon his return from Washington. This signed copy is in good condition overall, sound with some cosmetic wear and blemishes. The fragile black paper covered boards remain firmly attached with unbumped corners and the red front cover label is fully intact. The boards show some modest overall scuffing with a 1.5 inch split to the lower hinge, slight blistering of the paper at the lower left front cover, and a small amount of a waxy blue substance adhering to the bottom margin of the red label and the black paper directly below. The contents remain bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks apart from the author's signature. Churchill's signature is distinct and clearly legible, with only minor age-toning. The blank endsheets show light soiling and we find a tiny moisture stain at the upper blank margin, as well as a creased upper corner at the final free endpaper. Protecting the slim volume is a custom clamshell case in full black morocco (no cloth surfaces either internally or externally) with raised spine bands, marbled paper interior lining, and the date "1943" in gilt on the lower spine. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A181.4, Woods A93(b).

        Spifire Pilot

      London: Faber and Faber Limited,, 1943. Octavo. Original sky blue cloth, red lettered spine. Portrait frontispiece and 6 plates. Ownership inscription and note on front free endpaper. Spine sunned and rolled. First edition, fourth impression; originally published in June 1942. With an autograph letter signed from the author to "Thompson", thanking him for his letter and apologising for his slowness in replying as he has "been away", saying that he will "certainly 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", then enquiring if "any of your people come out from Carlisle by car?"; he closes by way of a postscript: "Excuse paper - written at aerodrome". Dated from RAF Kingstown, Carlisle, 17 December 1943 and written on a sheet roughly torn from an exercise book. A wonderfully evocative wartime letter from a noted Spitfire ace, who was killed a year and a day later. Flight Lieutenant David Moore Crook DFC was a member of 609 Squadron and was involved in the Battle of Britain. During his career he was credited with six "kills". On 18 December 1944 he took off from Dyce in Scotland on a high level photographic sortie; his plane went into the sea near Aberdeen and his body was never recovered.

While there is considerable controversy regarding Sartre's technical and systematic contributions and to their ultimate place in the history of philosophy, it remains true that "the extraordinary fecundity and energy of Sartre's mind must be recognized. Again and again, when he seems most deeply involved in some hopelessly sterile logomachy, he will offer an insight that make the tortuous complications of his terminology a small price to pay in turn. In this respect he is like Hegel, whom, among the great philosophers, he may most resemble" (Frederick A. Olafson). CONDITION: Original paper covers. Clean pages throughout. Light browning to spine. Review copy with "SP" SERVICE DE PRESSE printed to title page and rear wrapper. Housed in a cloth clam shell box. Overall, a very good or possibly near fine copy of a delicate and fragile work. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Fabrik: Ein Bildepos der Technik / Factory: A Photoessay on Technology

      Erlenbach-Zurich: Rotapfel-Verlag, 1943. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. Introductory text by Arnold Burgaurer in German. An interesting collection of black and white photographs all taken in Switzerland in the early 1940s. While the rest of Europe was undergoing the massive upheavals of World War II, Tuggener was able to take these modernist industrial images and portraits in the calm of a neutral country. A very near fine copy in brown cloth boards in an about very good dust jacket that has some edge wear, small tears, some rubbing and other wear as well. Original caption list laid in along with a contemporary publisher brochure as well as a gallery biography sheet from 1982. Despite the small flaws, a very nice copy of a powerful book. (Parr & Badger v1, 144)

        Fiasco Hall. By J.C.B. Hawkes, Jr.

      Privately Printed, Cambridge 1943 - Original printed wrappers, stapled. 14 pp. Very slight sunning to edges, still about fine. First edition of the rare first book by this important American novelist, a collection of verse printed at his own expense while a student at Harvard. In an interview with Bradford Morrow in Conjunctions, Hawkes noted, "I didn't know anything about poetry. When I went to Harvard in the summer of 1943, I took my poems to Robert Hillyer. He picked twelve or fourteen from a hundred, I think, and I had them privately printed. That's as far as my poetry went." In another interview, he expanded, "A lot of these poems reflected romantic notions about the war; I certainly thought I was probably going to be killed in the war, and I had the same romantic sensibility of some of the World War I poets -Wilfred Owen or Rupert Brooke. So I had these dreadful poems printed. Long after the war, I tried to destroy them by throwing them down the incinerator near our apartment in New York, but my mother luckily saved about fifty of them."

        Komponist (1864-1949): Masch. Briefkarte mit eigenh U. (voller Namenszug).

      Wien, Juni 1943.. Quer-Kl.- 8°. 1 S. - Mit Kuvert (Poststempel: 16. 6. 43).. "Für die liebenswürdigen Glückwünsche zu meinem Geburtstage [11. Juni], spreche ich meinen verbindlichsten Dank aus. // Wien, Juni 1943 // [eigenhändig:] Richard Strauss" - // - Das Kuvert (adressiert an einen Oberlehrer in "Grossteinback / Steiermark") mit Wiener Poststempel u. Briefmarken "Deutsches Reich" mit Hitler - Portrait trägt auf der Rückseite den Absenderstempel von Strauss: "Dr. Rich. Strauss / Wien III / 40, / Jaquingasse 10." - Die dortige Richard-Strauss-Villa nannten die Wiener das "Strauss-Schlössel" (heute Botschaftsgebäude der Niederlande). Die Villa wurde 1922-1926 von Michael Rosenauer im Auftrag der Stadt Wien erbaut und Richard Strauss geschenkweise überlassen. - // - Ab 1917 hatte Straus die von Max Reinhardt und Hugo von Hofmannsthal begonnene Initiative zur Gründung der Salzburg Festspiele unterstützt. 1920 wurden die ersten Festspiele mit dem "Jedermann" eröffnet. 1922 dirigierte Strauss die erste Opernaufführung (Don Giovanni).bei den Festspielen. 1919 bis 1924 war Strauss Operndirektor in Wien und dort entstanden viele seiner Opern. - Nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten spannten diese den international bekannten Richard Strauss für ihre Zwecke ein. Ab Nov. 1933 war Strauss Präsident der Reichsmusikkammer. Von diesem Amt musste er 1935 zurücktreten, nachdem die Gestapo einen kritischen Brief an Stefan Zweig abgefangen hatte. - Durch die Zusammenarbeit mit Stefan Zweig, der für seine Oper "Die schweigsame Frau" das Libretto schrieb, war Strauss bei den Nationalsozialisten in Ungnade gefallen. 1944 jedoch wurde Strauss von Hitler auf die Gottbegnadeten-Liste und auf die Sonderliste mit den drei wichtigsten Musikern gesetzt. - DABEI: Portraitpostkarte mit schönem Foto von Strauss ("phot. Weirich / Festspielhaus")
