Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Typescript is complete seal. Chronic literary published on the occasion of the publication of Montesquieu's Travels, preface by Marcel Arland. This meeting dummy travel logs of Montesquieu, Blanchot gives the opportunity to rent a form of "natural" writing, "free from all desire to play." These private notes do reflect a way of "brevity [which] gives us [the facts] naked, pressed by the sense that illuminate" and that a "considéérable material [has drawn] that a small book, quietly reduced to essentials.

        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. .

        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

        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.
