        Letter and hand corrected typescript of Alistair Cooke with Great World War II content

      New York, NY, April 26, 1943 A World War II archive consisting of several documents from Alistair Cooke. These documents contain fantastic World War II content. They describe what was occurring in the United States during, "the war to end all wars." In a TLS, he states, "From victory girls on the Gulf Coast giving rosemary to soldiers, to lumbermen in Oregon chopping down half the wood that goes into British planes, from the panicky deal of Miami hotel owners yielding their palaces to the Army Air Corps, to prospectors in Arizona flashing infra-red lamps on the hard face of mountains...". There are several corrections in Cooke's hand throughout the TLS, as well as three signatures. One document was typed on official "British Broadcasting Corporation" stationery.

        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.

        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

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. 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 he would later develop Many in these essays, "La Part du feu" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Scripture of the disaster."

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. .

        Green Mansions

      New York - Alfred A. Knopf, 1943 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Red colth covers with dustjacket in excellent condition. First Edition thus of this classic novel. This superb centenary edition features the original foreword by John Galsworthy as well as twelve full colour pages and twenty two black and white headpieces by the Argentine artist Horacio Butler. William Henry Hudson (August 4, 1841 August 18, 1922) was an author, naturalist and ornithologist. Hudson was born in the Quilmes Partido in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, son of settlers of U. S. origin. He spent his youth studying the local flora and fauna and observing both natural and human dramas on what was then a lawless frontier, publishing his ornithological work in Proceedings of the Royal Zoological Society, initially in an English mingled with Spanish idioms. He settled in England during 1869. He produced a series of ornithological studies, including Argentine Ornithology (1888-1899) and British Birds (1895), and later achieved fame with his books on the English countryside, including Hampshire Days (1903), Afoot in England (1909) and A Shepherd's Life (1910) which helped foster the back-to-nature movement of the 1920s and 1930s. He was a founding member of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. His best known novel is Green Mansions (1904), and his best known non-fiction is Far Away and Long Ago (1918). In Argentina he is considered to belong to the national literature as Guillermo Enrique Hudson, the Spanish version of his name. A town in Berazategui Partido and several other public places and institutions are named after him. Towards the end of his life he moved to the town of Worthing in Sussex, England. His grave is in Broadwater (part of Worthing), West Sussex, England. Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest (1904) is an exotic romance by William Henry Hudson about a traveller to the Guyana jungle of southeastern Venezuela and his encounter with a forest dwelling woman named Rima. Hudson based Rima and her lost tribe on persistent rumors about a tribe of white people who lived in the mountains. Temple paintings often showed light-skinned people, and Spanish Conquistadors were at first thought to be gods. Green Mansions also features some cryptozoological concepts such as Curupita Curupira and Didi purportedly representing giants apes unknown by science. Many authors of the time also recounted lost worlds and lost tribes, the most successful being Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard. Hudson's book has endured as literature because of its evocative and lyrical prose, and his naturalist's keen vision of the jungle. Rima also exemplifies the natural man, a philosophical notion put forth by Jean-Jacques Rousseau and others, that someone raised away from corrupting civilization would be naturally pure of heart and attuned to their environment. Tarzan, raised by apes, and Mowgli, raised by wolves, are Rima's literary cousins. In the Classics Illustrated comic book adaptation, the editor wonders if Hudson took inspiration for Rima's people - older, gentler, vegetarian, woods-dwelling - from legends of elves. The title may spring from the Bible quote, In my Father's house are many mansions, (John 14:2), implying the pristine forest is a natural and sacred cathedral. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are firmly attached. There is very little wear to the extremities. Internally the book is clean and bright. Some of the pages are roughly cut as called for. Some of the tissue guards presumably missing as others are detached but present. Overall this book is in very good condition indeed..

        The Man Born to be King

      London - Victor Gollancz Ltd., 1943 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The Man Born to Be King is a radio drama based on the life of Jesus, produced and broadcast by the BBC during the Second World War. With original dustwrapper and with notes, foreword and a brief note on the production by the author, Dr. Welch of the B. B. C. and Val Gielgud and the cast. First editionA play cycle consisting of twelve plays depicting specific periods in Jesus' life, from the events surrounding his birth to his death and resurrection. First broadcast by the BBC Home Service on Sunday evenings, beginning on December 21, 1941, with new episodes broadcast at 4-week intervals, ending on October 18, 1942. The series was written by novelist and dramatist Dorothy L. Sayers, and produced by Val Gielgud, with Robert Speaight as Jesus. The project aroused a storm of controversy, even before it was broadcast. Objections arose to the very idea- atheists complained of Christian propaganda, while devout Christians declared that the BBC would be committing blasphemy by allowing the Christ to be impersonated by a human actor- and also to Sayers' approach to the material. Sayers, who felt that the inherent drama of the Gospel story had become muffled by familiarity and a general failure to think of its characters as real people, was determined to give the plays dramatic immediacy, featuring realistic, identifiable characters with human emotions and motivations- and speech-patterns. The scripts of the series were first published in 1943, accompanied by a commentary by the author illuminating her attitude to the work and the reasoning behind particular aspects of her dramatisation and the public reaction to the series is described in the foreword. The Man Born to Be King was generally considered a great success, both as drama and as biblical representation. With previous owner's ink inscription to front free endpaper. Condition: In a cloth binding with original dustwrapper. Externally, smart with only a few marks to boards,with age toning to spine and top edge of dustwrapper and with slight chipping and edgewear. Internally, generally firmly bound. Generally clean but with marginal age toning to pages. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED with VERY GOOD dustwrapper.

        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
