        L'art de la nouvelle. 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 & 3 1/2 pages in-4, 4 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 4 pages et demi in-8 publié dans le numéro du 21 juillet 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, entre autres, des recueils de Marcel Aymé (Le Passe-muraille) et de Colette (Le képi). On joint le tapuscrit complet. A travers l'analyse de nouvelles de Colette, Marcel Aymé, Marcel Arland et Marius Richard, Blanchot s’intéresse à l'exigence d'unité entre les nouvelles d'un recueil "pour nous donner l'impression d'un monde véritable". 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 cœur 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 œuvre 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; Soft Cover]

        Hans le marin [with] Un scandale au XVIIIe siècle [with] La femme et le pantin [with] Le manchot. Eaux-fortes originales de Paul-Louis Guilbert

      Inter Nos 1943-1945, Paris - A COMPLETE SET--PERHAPS UNIQUE--OF THE FOUR BOOKS PUBLISHED BY "INTER NOS" IN PARIS DURING WORLD WAR TWO, THE FIRST TWO OF WHICH WERE ISSUED DURING THE OCCUPATION. The first three are EXTREMELY RARE because of the tiny edition sizes (by the time the fourth was published, the Germans had surrendered, so a somewhat larger edition could be printed). While many livres d'artiste were printed in France under the Occupation, they were subject to Nazi censorship, and thus limited themselves to uncontroversial subject-matter. "INTER NOS", as the name implies ("among us", in Latin), was the only organization (in fact a small group of friends) that published clandestine livres d'artiste, with texts and illustrations depicting graphic sex and sadistic violence. *****(1) Edouard Peisson, "Hans le marin" (1943), with 22 origlnal etchings by Paul-Louis Guilbert. EDITION LIMITED TO 17 COPIES PRINTED ON FINE WOVE PAPER, OF WHICH THIS IS ONE OF ONLY FIVE "EXEMPLAIRES DE COLLABORATEURS" ("collaborators" in a positive sense, we must assume). THIS COPY WAS SPECIALLY PRINTED FOR EDOUARD PEISSON, THE AUTHOR. This copy includes a second suite of the 22 etchings in first (remarque) state, as well as a suite of the three "planches refusées". One of the subversive remarques features a small portrait of a German officer complacently smoking a cigarette, with the etched text, "26 MARS 1943 / 1.005e jour / DE L'OCCUPATION_". Folio. Loose as issued in original wraps, housed in a custom clamshell box. FINE AND BRIGHT. ******(2) Frédéric Boutet, "Un scandale au XVIIIe siècle" (1943), with 20 original etchings by Guilbert. EDITION LIMITED TO 17 COPIES PRINTED ON FINE WOVE PAPER, OF WHICH THIS IS ONE OF FIVE COPIES WITH A REMARQUE SUITE OF THE ETCHINGS AND TWO SIGNED ORIGINAL DRAWINGS. This copy additionally has two etchings justified "épreuve unique", a working proof of one of the etchings, two additional drawings, the "planche refusée", two signed letters from Guilbert, and a signed original drawing opposite the half-title. This book and the following one have an extremely unusual feature: many of the etchings in the suites are actually other versions of the etchings in the book, rather than merely other states (in other words, they were not printed from the same plate). In some cases, the etchings used in the book are "decent" and the etchings in the suites are most certainly not. Folio. Loose as issued in original wraps. Board chemise and slipcase. FINE AND BRIGHT. ONE COPY IN WORLDCAT (BN). *****(3) Pierre Louÿs, "La femme et le pantin" (1945: completed April 25, two weeks before VE Day), with 41 original etchings by Guilbert. EDITION LIMITED TO 30 COPIES PRINTED ON FINE BFK RIVES WOVE PAPER, OF WHICH THIS IS ONE OF 13 WITH THREE SUITES OF THE ETCHINGS AND TWO ORIGINAL DRAWINGS. This copy additionally has four drawings (in addition to the two announced in the justification); two additional proofs of etchings (including one signed and annotated "épreuve unique"); twelve pages of typographical proofs (including two with etchings); a proof of the title-page with an original drawing; and two additional proofs of the spine label. 4to. Loose as issued in original wraps. FINE AND BRIGHT, in the slightly worn original chemise and slipcase. NO COPIES IN WORLDCAT. EVEN THE BIBLIOTHEQUE NATIONALE DOESN'T HAVE THIS ONE. *****(4) Charles-Théophile Féret, "Le manchot" (1945), with 21 original aquatints by Guilbert. Edition limited to 66 numbered copies beautifully printed on fine Arches wove paper, of which this is ONE OF TEN WITH AN ORIGINAL SIGNED GOUACHE PAINTING IN FULL COLOR. In this copy, the gouache is the preliminary design for the aquatint on p. 37. 4to. Loose as issued in original wraps, board chemise, and slipcase. A bit of light foxing, else FINE AND BRIGHT. Very rare. ******** COMPLETE SETS LIKE THIS ONE ARE OF THE GREATEST RARITY: EVEN THE INDIVIDUAL BOOKS ARE EXTREMELY RARE, AND I HAVE FOUND NO REFERENCE TO THE EXISTENCE OF ANY OTHER COMPLETE SET.

        L'armee francaise par Lucien Rousselot. 2 Bände

      . Ein außergewöhnliches Werk, auf das Uniformliebhaber lange gewartet haben: Die vollständige Ausgabe der Uniformtafeln des berühmten Militärmalers Lucien Rousselot, die eine unentbehrliche Quelle für die Napoleonische Epoche darstellen. Rousselot, der offizieller Maler des französischen Heeres war, schuf diese 106 Tafeln zur Napoleonischen Zeit zwischen 1943 und 1971, wobei er sich auf seine gewissenhaften Recherchen in den Militärarchiven stützen konnte. Etwa 68 Zeichnungen sind dem Ersten Kaiserreich gewidmet, die übrigen befassen sich mit dem Ancien Regime, der Zeit der Restauration und dem Zweiten Kaiserreich. Diese Ausgabe hält sich getreu an das Original, nicht nur was die ursprüngliche Farbgebung anbelangt, sondern sie gibt auch Rousselots Texte genau wieder. Diese beiden Bände kommen in einem schmucken Schuber, der zweifelsohne einen Ehrenplatz in manch einer Bibliothek einnehmen wird. Festeinband. 2 Bände im Schuber. Französischer Text, 106 doppelseitige Farbtafeln, Großformat. 450 Seiten. Obere Buchecken leicht gestaucht, ansonsten sehr gut erhalten..

        The Fountainhead

      Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1943.. Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1943. First edition, first issue with first edition stated on the copyright page of the author's first major Objectivist novel, as well as her first best-seller. Octavo, original red cloth. Fine in a in a near fine first issue dust jacket with some light fading to the spine and small chip to the crown fold. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare, especially without the usual restoration that is encountered with this dust jacket. Although Rand was a previously published novelist and had a successful Broadway play, she faced difficulty in finding a publisher she thought right for The Fountainhead. She let Macmillian Publishing go when they rejected her demand for better publicity (Branden, 1986), and when her agent criticized the novel, she fired him and handled submissions herself (Burns, 2009). After sifting through eleven more publishers, Rand finally released The Fountainhead with Bobbs-Merrill Company in 1943. The reception was instant, and The Fountainhead became a bestseller in two years. The protagonist, Howard Roark, whose character was thought to be inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, is a young architect fighting against convention. Cited by numerous architects as an inspiration, Ayn Rand said the theme of the book was "individualism versus collectivism, not within politics but within a man's soul." Rand chose architecture as the analogy of her heady themes because of the context of the ascent of modern architecture. It provided an appropriate mode to make relevant her beliefs that the individual is of supreme value, the "fountainhead" of creativity, and that selfishness, properly understood as ethical egoism, is a virtue. Some critics consider The Fountainhead to be Rand's best novel (Merill, 1991). Indeed, philosopher Mark Kingwell described it as "Rand's best work" (Kingwell, 2006).

        Le Musée Grévin

      Imprimerie spéciale des éditions de Minuit, sans lieu 1943 - août-septembre 1943, tract plié de 3 feuillets (6 pages), 27,5 X 21 cm. L’histoire de l’édition de ce poème est très compliquée, la véritable édition originale aurait été fabriquée clandestinement à Saint-Flour chez un imprimeur résistant, voici ce que l’on sait de ce tout premier tirage : commencé en juin 1943, « Le Musée Grévin » fut achevé dans la Drôme puis publié en août 1943. Georges Sadoul se souvient des circonstances de cette sortie : « Quand notre “technique” nous parla d’une imprimerie clandestine possible, Aragon, parcourant Montchat, chercha durant de longues heures un titre de maison d’édition, pour s’arrêter à “la Bibliothèque française”. Une des premières brochures qui porta le nom de cette firme fut “Le Musée Grévin” publié sous une couverture de papier peint jaune et blanc, par un imprimeur de Saint-Flour “contacté” par Paul Éluard et Ternet. Ce livre signé François la Colère fut bientôt après réédité par les éditions de Minuit dont nous diffusions en zone Sud les publications. ». Entre l’édition Bibliothèque française, un véritable serpent de mer, et celle de Minuit en volume, le poème fut imprimé sous forme d’un tract dépliant de six pages avec un achevé d’imprimé d’août-septembre 1943, quand la plaquette des éditions de Minuit (26 pages), d’un format beaucoup plus réduit, porte un achevé d’imprimer du 6 octobre 1943, ce dernier tirage (octobre 43) est presque toujours donné à tort comme l’édition originale. C’est dans Le musée Grévin qu’apparaît pour la première fois dans la littérature clandestine de l’occupation le nom d’Auschwitz (voir scan 2) Nous proposons le tract de juillet-août, de la plus insigne rareté car destiné à circuler puis à être détruit. En excellent état, excepté une déchirure marginale sans perte et n’affectant pas le texte.

" ...I expressed the soul of Moscow in a poem 'The City of God'...a 'hashish dream come true'. Every object of sense, from the...architecture of the city, to the art, ...the people, stings one to the soul, each an essential element of the supreme sacrament. At the same time, the reality of all these things, using the word in its grossest sense, consummates the marriage of the original antinomies which exist in one's mind between the ideal and the actual." (Yorke 44). . First Edition/Signed/HandNumbered. Wraps, Bound with String Tie. Near Fine in Wraps. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
