Amicales pensees / Albert Camus". With letter of provenance. Le Malentendu [The Misunderstanding], was written by Camus in 1943 and first performed on August 24, 1944. It "is a highly subjective presentation by Camus of the human condition as he saw it in the desperate circumstances of 1942-43" and was once described by Camus as "the play that resembles me the most" (Freeman; Williams, The Misunderstanding and Caligula). Caligula, written in 1938, but not performed until 1945 was based on the life of the Roman Emperor. Along with The Stranger and The Myth of Sisyphus, it constitutes part of what Camus referred to as his "Cycle of the Absurd". With original promotional slip by Gallimard laid-in. Paris: Gallimard, 1944. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. Small hole on front free endpaper (possible paper flaw), a few spots of soiling to wrapper. Rare signed.

Il fit également éditer la Correspondance de Voltaire et le Dictionnaire philosophique du même Voltaire, avant de s’attaquer à un travail très complet sur Le Prince de Machiavel et L'Anti-Machiavel de Frédéric II. Puis il écrit le Guide de l’étudiant, guide ayant pour ambition de faire connaître Voltaire aux jeunes. Il écrivit également un recueil de poèmes intitulé Vivaces. Un peu plus tard, il voulut écrire L’Aventure de Prométhée, livre en trois volumes . A la fin de sa vie, il conçut le projet d’une histoire littéraire : « L’Aventure de Prométhée » dont les trois volumes devaient paraître chez Privat-Didier à Toulouse. Seul le premier volume « La Patience » a pu être publié. La Gestapo a emporté et détruit les manuscrits des deux autres volumes suite à l’arrestation de Raymond Naves. Les deux volumes en préparation, « La Révolte » et « Le Vertige » consacrés au dix-huitième siècle et à la période romantique ne seront jamais que les titres d’une oeuvre tragiquement interrompue.

        Gremlins on the Job.

      London, Canada London Printing & Lithography 1943 - Quarto. 12 ff. First edition. Illustrated in color. Like Roald Dahl's book, which bears a similar title, Varga's text is based on an R.A.F. legend of capricious sprites whose raison d'être is to sabotage aircraft. Both books were published in the same year, and it is not known which actually appeared first, though inscribed copies of Dahl's book suggest it was published toward the end of 1943. This book, however, did not benefit from having Disney as a collaborator, as Dahl did; nevertheless, its colorful depictions of these aeronautic mischief-makers have a folk-art quality that, in some respects, fits better with the subject matter. Original color pictorial wrappers show some light toning, name stamp at top of cover and title page, corners very lightly creased, else a fine copy of an ephemeral item.

        McSORLEY'S WONDERFUL SALOON.

      Duell, Sloan and Pearce, (1943), New York: - Woodcut vignette to t.p. Opened in 1854, McSorely's Old Ale House is the oldest, continuously- operated Irish pub in New York City. As a measure of its 'traditionally minded' owners, the tavern was men-only until 1970, when the National Organization for Women won a legal suit, thereby gaining admission [if not welcome]. By the time I had a beer or two there in the late 70s, the female gender had become a vital ingredient to a congenial evening imbibing amid general convivality, though McSorleys had yet to make any concession in terms of facilities- there was one. if a lady wanted to use it, she took her chances. the memory of the subsequent clapping on her exit, all the while the waiter was bringing 14 mugs of beer to the table [sans tray], is as vivid today as if I had been there just last night. VG+/VG (bit of chipping to spine ends). Red cloth binding with black spine lettering. Dust jacket. 8vo. 8-1/4" x 5-5/8". 1st edition.

        THE ANGEL IN THE ALCOVE

      Audrey Wood, [n.p.] New York: [n.d.] 1943 - Williams, Tennessee. THE ANGEL IN THE ALCOVE. [n.p.] New York: [n.d.] 1943. 8vo., 13 pp. rectos only. First Edition. Original carbon typescript short story [basis for Vieux Carré], punch bound blue stiff wrappers of the Liebling-Wood Agency, 551 Fifth Ave. New York. A fine House File Copy. [Audrey Wood was Williams' literary agent. From 1939 Wood helped guide & focus Williams' writing. With her nurturing, he created some of his greatest works, including: Menagerie, Streetcar & Cat]. Very uncommon example in private hands. Recognized as Williams's (quasi) autobiographical coming-out narrative which found major success not in the US but in the UK. "Of the numerous plays written in the later portion of Tennessee Williams's prolific career, perhaps the most satisfying and undoubtedly the most favorably received was the 1978 British production of Vieux Carré, directed by Keith Hack, presented first at Nottingham Playhouse (16 May 1978) & later in London at the Piccadilly Theatre (9 August 1978). The British staging came a year after the play's disastrous Broadway premiere. "What was potentially strongest in this chamber-music play of time, place, & memory has been botched by inept direction," noted T. E. Kalem in Time magazine, & Walter Kerr in the New York Times indicted the director for what he termed an "irresponsible production", suggesting that the play be given another staging with different personnel. He concluded his review: "I'm game for a second go". The British production proved to be the "second go" that Kerr had championed, and under Keith Hack's direction it emerged as a major success, evoking comparison with A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie. Michael Coveney's review in the Financial Times was a rave: "Mr Williams returns to the London stage in blistering form" - Craig Clinton, Finding the Way: The Evolution of Tennessee Williams's Vieux Carre - Resources for American Literary Study 26:1 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        THE GASTRONOMICAL ME.

      Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1943, New York - Fisher, M.F.K. THE GASTRONOMICAL ME. New York: Duell, Sloan & Pearce, 1943 . "Like most humans, I am hungry. . . our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it. . . ." First Edition, Publisher's green cloth stamped in silver at the spine. 8vo., 295pp, with the more common dustwrapper of a handsome Fisher three quarter portrait on the back panel that replaced [by the publisher] the more provocative reclining pose shot by Hurrell. A fine copy in the publisher's smooth green cloth in a fine bright dustwrapper with one tiny chip at the spine crown of this admired tightly woven memoir & collection of cooking essays written over a twenty year period that have more to do with the entanglements of life & the appreciation of good things. Considered by many as her best book, TGM is about hunger in all its variant forms. The book starts with: "There in Dijon, the cauliflowers were very small and succulent, grown in that ancient soil. I separated the flowerlets and dropped them in boiling water for just a few minutes. Then I drained them and put them in a wide shallow casserole, and covered them with heavy cream, and a thick sprinkling of freshly grated Gruyere, the nice rubbery kind that didn’t come from Switzerland at all, but from the Jura. It was called rape in the market, and was grated while you watched, in a soft cloudy pile, onto your piece of paper". John Updike called Fisher "Poet of the appetites". A beautiful copy.

        Cloth of the Tempest

      New York: Harper and Brothers. (1943). First. First edition. Small owner's label of Arthur Sturcke, a small image of Patchen and other clippings affixed to the front and back blanks, thus very good in near fine dustwrapper with some modest age-toning. Inscribed by Patchen: "for Arthur with all the etc. etc. Kenneth." Laid into the book at page 60 is a printed rejection slip from The Saturday Review, on the bottom of which however is a handwritten note Initialed by Stephen Vincent Benet: "We are taking 'O My Darling Troubles Heaven with Her Loveliness' & glad to have it! S.V.B." The poem is printed on page 60 of this book. Sturcke, a lifetime friend of Patchen, was a painter and pacifist who exhibited in the 1930s and 1940s, and who did much to help and support the author. Patchen mentions him in his book Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer in a dialogue discussing art and artists: "And what about DeNiro? There is a serious young painter. All right what about Kamrowski? -- Or Lee Bell? Or Jackson Pollock? -- Or Arthur Sturcke?" .

Near fine, with a hint of light wear to the extremities, very light offsetting to the endpapers, bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with very light toning to the spine and panel edges, a few chips to the bottom edges of the panels, short closed tears and minor creasing to the edges, a few faint spots of light soiling. Overall, a pleasing copy. The Little Prince is a beloved children's novella that tells the story of a little boy from the tiny Asteroid B-612 who falls to Earth and meets a pilot who has been stranded in the desert, based loosely on Saint-Exupéry's own experience in the Sahara Desert. The text is complimented by the author's watercolor illustrations, which add to its dreamlike quality. The Little Prince was first published in the United States while Saint-Exupéry, a native of Lyons, was living in self-imposed exile in North America after France signed an armistice agreement with Nazi Germany. The text was published simultaneously in English with Katherine Woods' translation and in the original French under the title Le Petit Prince. Translated into over 250 languages and selling nearly 2 million copies per year, The Little Prince is indeed, as the dust jacket proclaims, one of the "few stories which in some way, in some degree, change the world forever for their readers.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        McSORLEY'S WONDERFUL SALOON

      New York:: Duell, Sloan and Pearce,. (1943).. 8vo. 8-1/4" x 5-5/8". 1st edition. [10], 253, [1 (blank)] pp.. Red cloth binding with black spine lettering. Dust jacket.. VG+/VG (bit of chipping to spine ends).. Opened in 1854, McSorely's Old Ale House is the oldest, continuously- operated Irish pub in New York City. As a measure of its 'traditionally minded' owners, the tavern was men-only until 1970, when the National Organization for Women won a legal suit, thereby gaining admission [if not welcome]. By the time I had a beer or two there in the late 70s, the female gender had become a vital ingredient to a congenial evening imbibing amid general convivality, though McSorleys had yet to make any concession in terms of facilities- there was one... if a lady wanted to use it, she took her chances... the memory of the subsequent clapping on her exit, all the while the waiter was bringing 14 mugs of beer to the table [sans tray], is as vivid today as if I had been there just last night. . Woodcut vignette to t.p.
