        De la louange à la souveraineté. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1943), 13,5x21cm & 6 pages in-4, 4 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 4 pages et demie in-8 publiée dans le numéro du 2 Juin 1943 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique littéraire de l'oeuvre de Georges Dumézil On joint le tapuscrit complet. 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 c

        La poésie religieuse. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      Autograph manuscript of the author of four and a half pages 8vo published in the issue dated June 9, 1943 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Chronic literary published on the occasion of the publication of the Anthology of Poetry by Dominique Aury religious. Typescript is complete seal. 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." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrated analytical acuity far beyond current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classic and modern, first-class writers and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking that 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," the 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 two acts from which culture entered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers NRF together under the direction of Christopher Bident all literary chronicles not yet published in volume with the proper analysis of the critical work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer of his own rhetoric, delivered more to the echo of the impossible or the lure of the disappearance. (...) 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. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Report on Operations of 77th Indian Infantry Brigade in Burma, February to June 1943

      New Delhi: Printed by the Manager, Government of India Press,, 1943. Octavo. Original green quarter cloth, printed paper sides. Large folding coloured map in end-pocket, diagrams and plans to the text. Laid-in newspaper clipping Sir Robert Thompson and Brigadier Peter Mead's letter to The Times, 31 July 1978, regarding the treatment of Wingate in Kirby's War Against Japan. Extremities rubbed and bumped, covers marked, inner hinges superficially cracked at ends, but holding, occasional pencil-marks to margins, folding map creased at edges, the image unaffected. A very good copy of a book with a high rate of attrition. First and only edition, number 162 of 200 copies printed, of this secret and highly controversial report, withdrawn and redacted shortly after publication. Rare: Copac lists the IWM copy only, with the note "back pocket empty"; OCLC shows only a reprint of 1984 in the library of the Australian Defence Force Academy. This copy with a cyclostyled "Note by H.E. the Commander-in-Chief" (Auchinleck), tipped to the title page, and the contentious passages thoroughly blacked out (a transcription of the obliterated portions is laid in). Auchinleck's note begins: "I wish to emphasize that this report is the report of the Commander 77 India Infantry Brigade to the Commander 4 Corps. It contains opinions with which I am not necessarily in full agreement. Certain remarks which are unsuitable in a report of this nature have been deleted. While passages of questionable propriety remain, I have decided to sanction a limited distribution in order that Commanders should have without delay the benefit of the great quantity of valuable information which it contains". Wingate's report on Operation Longcloth, the first operation of the Chindits, was to become one of the founding documents of long range penetration. The first incursion into Burma had three objectives: to cut the railway line between Mandalya and Myitkyina; to harass the Japanese in the Shwebo district; and to cross the Irrawaddy and cut the railway between Mandalay and Lashio. They were successful in the first objective, and Japanese reaction to their presence indicates a degree of success in the second. However, at the railway line, two columns were ambushed and incurred heavy casualties. Wingate ordered a general dispersal and retreat back to India. They had spent twelve weeks in the jungle and marched almost a thousand miles; their losses were 833 out of 3,000 men. Wingate saw the operation as a failure, but, though it lacked material results, Longcloth recast future strategic thinking. It had been shown that the British could attack in the jungle, an alien environment for them, and take the war to the Japanese. According to Peter Mead, a former officer on Wingate's staff, "Wingate's report on the operation was written between the end of May and the middle of June 1943, in the 19th Military Hospital, Imphal ? Sheets were typed and cleared daily with Gen. Scoones, his corps commander, who subsequently approved the report as a whole. Wingate interpreted this approval ? as conferring the right to obtain a printing and to show it at his discretion ? although he arranged for the Government of India Press at New Delhi to print the report he seems to have made no approach to GHQ on the matter; typed copies of the report had previously been sent by Scoones to the commander of Eastern Army, however, and thus found their way to GHQ; the latter did not like it. By 7th July, however, the report had been printed, proofs read by Wingate at New Delhi and copies of the corrected edition sent [to several people]. GHQ promptly withdrew the report, to be issued later with offending passages censored in black, but Leo Amery's uncensored copy was the important one, for Amery sent it to Churchill" (Mead, Orde Wingate and the Historians). Churchill "suddenly saw a gleam of light in what he had characterized as a 'welter of lassitude and inefficiency' ? Wingate was flown home, met Churchill, and was added to his entourage for the voyage to the Anglo-American summit at Quebec in August 1943 (the 'quadrant' conference)" (ODNB), where he sought to persuade the Allied chiefs of the soundness of the long range penetration concept.

        André Gide et Goethe. Manuscrit autographe

      1943. - 1943, 3 feuillets in-8 (21,2 x 13,6 cm) paginés, en feuilles. - Manoscritta autografa sul Journal of Discussioni del 3 febbraio 1943 e Faux Pas. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 5 pages in-8 publié dans le numéro du 3 février 1943 du Journal des Débats, repris, légèrement modifié, dans Faux Pas (1943). Manuscrit recto-verso complet, à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreux ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique parue à l'occasion de la publication du Théâtre de Wolfgang von Goethe dans la « Pléiade » avec une introduction d'André Gide.   Maurice Blanchot avait consacré dans les pages du Journal des débats une première étude à André Gide en novembre 1942 ; à propos des Nourritures terrestres, dont il louait « la grandeur authentique », il écrivait alors, dans une forme de réhabilitation : « Cet ouvrage n'est pas seulement un essai dans un sens impersonnel, un essai sur quelque chose, à propos de quelque chose, mais un essai de l'auteur sur lui-même, où il s'essaie par l'intermédiaire de pensées et d'images, où, en se donnant dans une complète adhésion à une certaine vue du monde, il entreprend une expérience dont il est le sujet, dont il accepte aventureusement le risque et qui ne peut pas le modifier d'une certaine manière. » Cette nouvelle étude est l'occasion pour Blanchot de revenir à Gide, cet auteur « si divers quoique si fidèle » à lui-même, et à l'étonnement que lui a causé sa préface au Théâtre de Goethe parue dans la « Pléiade » : « Ce qu'André Gide voit dans Goethe, ce n'est pas le devenir infiniment riche d'une existence qui a su être quantité d'êtres et tant de choses tout en étant de plus en plus elle-même, mais ce qu'il y a de plus stable, d'un peu guindé dans l'éternel, la figure mythique glorifiée par Eckermann ; ce qu'il admire, ce n'est pas le Titan qui cherche à étreindre plus qu'il n'est, qui veut tout sans se perdre, c'est le vieillard solennel des dernières années, devenu le modèle de l'univers et préoccupé de tirer de chaque chose une leçon. » C'est aussi l'occasion d'écrire sur Goethe, étudié à l'Université de Strasbourg, et sur lequel Blanchot reviendra notamment dans un article publié en 1950 dans L'Observateur et intitulé « Le Compagnon de route ».   Intéressante lecture des liens unissant Gide à Goethe.

        Bivector Fields" [Einstein & Bargmann] WITH "Bivector Fields II" [Einstein] in Annals of Mathematics 45, No. 1, January 1944 [Papers received August 1943], pp. 1-15; pp. 15-24

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF EINSTEIN'S TWO BIVECTOR PAPERS - HIS PENULTIMATE ATTEMPT TO ARRIVE AT A UNIFIED FIELD THEORY & HIS "HIS LAST MAJOR NEW SCIENTIFIC MODEL" (Sauer, Einstein's Unified Field Theory Program, 22; Raab Collection). What Einstein (and Bargmann) propose is "in effect, an attempt at a nonlocal relativistic theory of gravitation" (Janssen, Cambridge Companion to Einstein, 299). Weil 213; Boni 248-249). In 1943, Einstein and Wolfgang Pauli proved "the non-existence of regular solutions to the vacuum field equations that would asymptotically behave like the Newtonian gravitational potential, regardless of symmetry conditions for the field in regions of finite field strength. Moreover, the proof showed that this result was valid not only in four dimensions, but also for the Kaluza-Klein five-dimensional theory. In effect, this result indicated that, under very general conditions, any attempt to base a unified theory on the Riemann tensor would necessarily involve singularities in particle-like solutions. Clearly, the latter result was at odds with core requirements of Einstein's program, and it therefore does not come as a surprise that he was willing to reconsider key assumptions of his earlier efforts" (Janssen, 299). The immediate outcome of Einstein's reconsiderations was the new approach he pursued in these two papers, the first authored with Valentin Bargmann, a mathematical physicist and one of Einstein's assistants at the Institute for Advanced Study. The starting point of their work "was to keep the four-dimensionality of the theory and also the requirement of general covariance, but to give up the postulate that a generalized theory of gravitation should necessarily be based on the existence of a Riemannian metric" (ibid). "Concerned with the geometry of curved space, [Einstein] turned to a new theory called bivectors based on mathematical equations not of the standard differential variety he had used with General Relativity, but rather a more algebraic approach in which he wrapped in more variables. He assumed the four-dimensionality of space, but the bivectors mathematical construct depended on two distinct points of the four-dimensional continuum to measure distance in space. Each point was a different mark in space not infinitesimally close to the other. Since each point is four dimensional, this requires 8 variables for two points. It becomes a more complex algebraic equation. He wrote two papers on this subject (these papers) in 1943 and 1944; this was to be his last major new scientific model. After 1945, while still believing in the unified forces of nature, his method of determining them would revert to his earlier methods of calculation with four variables" (Raab). CONDITION & DETAILS: Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press. Original wraps, complete. [206], 2. (Royal 8vo; 10 x 7 inches). Bright and clean inside and out. Near fine condition.

The film was the first Hollywood picture shown to Soviet audience in movie theatres. Only few films were shown during 1943-1945 before the relationship between two countries became hostile again. Extremely rare. Only 3500 posters were printed as the film screening was limited.

The volume was limited to 1000 numbered copies, this is copy no. 344. This massive monograph covers the salamanders of Imperial Japan including Formosa (Taiwan) and Korea. According to Adler (vol. 1, p. 122-123), "this is a masterful treatise, with beautiful color plates, and includes systematics, life histories, embryology, and chromosome morphology." The author, Ikio Sato, was Japan's leading expert on salamanders and was Professor of Biology at Hiroshima University. "On August 6, 1945, while waiting for a streetcar to his laboratory, he suffered extensive radiation exposure during the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and died six days later in Hiroshima City at the age of 42" (Adler, p. 122). Sato had been working on an English translation of his 'Tailed Amphibians of Japan' at the time of his death; unfortunately, that manuscript was burned when his home was destroyed in the bombing (Adler). Additionally, any copies of the monograph that Sato or his Hiroshima colleague had were also destroyed in the bombing making the work all the more scarce. The text is in Japanese with Latin names of species used through the volume. The color plates are very well done. No ownership marks and few signs of use.

        ?????????. [Dait?asens? kaigun bijutsu]. [Art from the Naval Campaigns of the Greater East Asia War].

      Tokyo: Dainihon Kaiy? Bijutsu Ky?kai [Great Japan Oceanic Art Association] ?????????. Showa 18. ??1943.. 35 colour plates showing official Japanese Second World War paintings tipped in on card (31 x 39cm) each with captioned tissue guards. Presented in original fabric covered case, paper title label on upper cover, 2 leaves of text, list of plates laid down on inside of case. The Emperor's Declaration of War, the editor's note and plain paper band to give aid in lifting images from box are not present. Fabric on the case is frayed in places but is otherwise very good and complete. The case measures 42 x 34cm. A superior edition of the work which is more frequently seen in book form. This edition marked "Not for sale". This striking portfolio contains thirty-five reproductions of Japanese World War II propaganda paintings by Japanese official war artists many of whom were already established artists at the time. The publication was supported by the Ministry of Navy and features the calligraphy of Admiral Yamamoto Isoroku on one of the first leaves proclaiming "Always in the Battlefield", the testimonial by Admiral Yonai Mitsumasa who became a minister in the Ministry of Navey in 1944 as well as his calligraphy for the title on the upper cover. Among the well known artists whose work is included is Fujita Tsuguji who had moved to Paris and established his career as a painter before the war where he became friends with Pablo Picasso. All the paintings but one, record known events and battles in World War II. However not all scenes depicted are entirely accurate. The image titled "Night Operations of the Battle of Savo Island" (No.25) shows the night time battle which took place on the 8th August in 1942. This painting shows HMAS Canberra on fire. The caption for this scene says "HMAS Australia sank and HMAS Canberra started a fire" but although the HMAS Australia was engaged in the battle it did not sink. The most imaginative painting however is the image of New York which shows Japanese bombers circling the city. .

From the library of George M Foster. 3d edition.Juan de Torquemada was born between 1557 and 1565 and arrived in New Spain as a child. He studied philosophy and Nahuatl at the convent Grande de San Francisco in Mexico City, where he was ordained in 1579. In 1582 he moved to the convent of Santiago Tlatelolco, and he was made guardian of that convent in 1600. He also took over the administration of the Colegio de Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco. Beginning in 1604 he traveled continually on the business of his order. He was guardian of the convents of Zacatlán (in the mountains of Puebla) and Tlaxcala. In 1607, during the terrible flood of Mexico City, he was asked by Viceroy Juan de Mendoza y Luna, marqués de Montesclaros to reconstruct the calzadas (carriageways) of Chapultepec, Misterios to Tepeyac and San Cristóbal and the dams of Zumpango and Citlaltépetl, although he was not an engineer. In 1609 he was named chronologist of the Franciscan Order. In 1610 Torquemada oversaw construction of the monastery and church of Santiago Tlatelolco. Its interior featured a grandiose altarpiece decorated with paintings by Baltasar de Echave Orio surrounding a hand-carved relief of Santiago, but this was destroyed soon afterwards. In 1614 Torquemada was elected provincial superior of the Order of St. Francis in Mexico.[2] He held this position until 1617. He died suddenly in the church of Santiago Tlatelolco in 1624, while singing matins. Juan de Torquemada was born between 1557 and 1565 and arrived in New Spain as a child. He studied philosophy and Nahuatl at the convent Grande de San Francisco in Mexico City, where he was ordained in 1579. In 1582 he moved to the convent of Santiago Tlatelolco, and he was made guardian of that convent in 1600. He also took over the administration of the Colegio de Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco. His main work is Los veintiún libros rituales i monarchia indiana con el origen y guerras de los Indios Occidentales, de sus poblaciones, descubrimientos, conquista, conversión y otras cosas maravillosas de la misma tierra (The Twenty-one Ritual Books and Indian Monarchy With the Origin and Wars of the West Indians, of Their Populations, Discoveries, Conquest, Conversion and Other Marvelous Things of the Same Land, usually known as Monarchia Indiana) (3 volumes, Seville, 1615). The first edition is rare, but the work was reprinted in Madrid in 1723 and again in a facsimile edition by Salvador Chávez Hayhoe in 1943-44. This was the only New Spain chronicle of its time known to contemporaries. Works of Toribio de Benavente Motolinia, Bernardino de Sahagún, Gerónimo de Mendieta, Diego Muñoz Camargo and others were not available for centuries. The book is tedious to read because of its theological digressions, contradictions and anachronisms. Nevertheless, it gathers together a large quantity of information taken from Indigenous pictographs and manuscripts and from Franciscan and other Catholic scholars. Torquemada interviewed old Indigenous people about their ancestors and recorded their oral traditions. The Monarchia Indiana is the best work on what was known of the Indigenous past at the beginning of the seventeenth century. It is considered an especially important source on the Totonac, Pipil and Nicoya cultures.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Foster's date of aquiry on front end paper of volume one (lacks Foster's stamp), light edge wear else a very good to fine copy.

        [Faux-Pas] Digressions. Jeu complet d'épreuves abondamment corrigées par l'auteur.

      First new version of the autograph manuscript of 17 pages, written in 1935. Manuscript writing very dense, full excluding the last 13 lines of printed text, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Complete typescript with a few variations from the manuscript and a copy of the first edition published in 1947 and finally published in 1950 is attached. In 1935, Blanchot has been working for 3 years on Thomas the Obscure (he completed in 1940) when interrupts his writing "that would not stop" to write the last word, a short story he describes as "an attempt to bypass another book underway to overcome the interminable and get a more linear narrative, yet painfully complex, a silent decision ... ". In 1983, Blanchot, referring to the motivations of this "innocent text where murderers omens of future time resounded," can not say "how it is written and how unknown requirement, it has the answer." "It was not a text for publication," he says in the afterword of hindsight. The last word will indeed published 12 years later in 550 copies in the collection golden age (although it went bankrupt at the same time, the book will be on sale in 1950) . So the first story is meant at once the last word and the refusal of its unveiling. "Surely begin to write immediately to achieve at the end (...), this means at least hope not to make a career and finding the shortest path to finish early." In this "Apocalypse" Blanchot leads his own novel being written: Thomas, the hero, and is ironically called the new power otherwise without express "what happened to him [that] saying nothing happened ". But if, starting with the last word, Blanchot marks the end of writing, it is an end that remains unpublished. And when the book is finally published, it will be more of a work already substantial: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadab, Faux pas, the Most High, Death Sentence and The Share of fire. Therefore, the last word is not "waiver be Master and Judge," but a written waiver of this "itself in vain." It can no longer be "the unusual resolution to deprive [Language] to support (...) that is to say more than language" but, as part of the work, there is a "word to say and do not say. ". A word rewritten by the writer he became transformed by writing and by war. This is the inaugural version, first draft of thirty young Blanchot, we present here and C. Bident his biographer, thought "probably never know." Narrative foundation, basic writing, many scholars have studied the last man, "painfully complicated" as even the author, but who calls a few "prophetic" pages a reflection on language (and, through him, totalitarianism) marking the second part of the century. Now we present the manuscript written in 1935 and until then unknown, differs considerably from the following two versions of 1947 and 1983. Written in the third person (the later will they, homodiégétiques) the story is much longer. It contains descriptions and including many deleted scenes that will be removed in the published versions: "The sun bathed [plaza] a fiery light of huge mirrors, placed at the four corners, be kicked around in a maze of colors . "" A cloud was soon raised to the ceiling, black cloud crossed by small glowing patches. "" I am worried, he said. I was wrong to leave earlier this house when I get home, surrounded by torches are extinguished one by one. What will I find now? How to live without I guideline? Can you tell me anything? "" Some children, head blackened coal, removed the sand in which they were buried, and trying to achieve with small white stones they drew from their pocket, they reviled in their incomprehensible language. "" Taking advantage of the lull, dogs out of their hole, as if they had been secretly excited by a master, they rushed to the sleeper by pulling on their links. They tried to right, left, then discovering it under the covers, they are slipped badly, small first, then the big dog, like a vicious bunch of kids. "" The intoxication of being together having lost younger pushed them into their own home as if she had ceased to be theirs, and they threw screams waking intruders from their homes. "But this manuscript provides the exegete especially demonstrative few passages that provide clarification on the meaning of the story:" Until is not an indifferent manner to the past and the future. If it is intended to extend a veil over what approach, if a link between, by mutual repulsion, separate time moments it appears from something, something else is not shown, however, that such limit. "" They whom nothing was forbidden to speak and who knew, behaved as if their knowledge had been to break with the language. "" The disciple on this admission, redoubled adoration, give themselves shots that change them into what they can be. At first common deception, they ran, one to an animal world, the other to a riveted himself a slave. "" They wanted to laugh again nonsense, is torturing a lie, but, having no other way to stand as the apotheosis, they lost sight of their mutual desire for death and blissfully enjoyed the rest. "A key reading these valuable addition changes that reflect real shifts of the author. If the most important is, of course, the choice of the first person in later versions, some lexical variations are also very significant. Thus: "I offer the spectacle of my vices" in the manuscript and typescript 1935 becomes: "I offer the spectacle of my mistakes" in the published version of the same in 1947. "This is an extract from the speech the third city "becomes" This is an excerpt of the speech on the third on the third State "; "A noise (...) was one stroke the whole town" becomes "was one stroke all the people" and "... on a deck of onomatopoeia" becomes "... a gateway ranting." Finally, it is a lyrical Blanchot that reveals this "abrupt call of language": "She had her hair hanging these broad wings velvet are a promise of transformation." "... When the sun casting its light shining against the mirrors everywhere, stopped above the esplanade and heard this loud voice, private mysteriously vowels and consonants, which announces the sharing of spaces" "Shouts of the crowd came and brought calls for an immense distress. "" He ran on the book and bit his teeth, as if he had made insensitive despite the bitterness of those old pages. ". In hindsight Blanchot hesitate to comment, however, that this text provides for the third time and he took care to revise again, 50 years after its first release. However, it brings some bits of explanations that reveal the importance of this little story in the life and work of one of the most mysterious writers of the twentieth century: "The last word has to tell main line, as having instead, the total wreck, the narrative itself can not therefore be preserved, and impossible or absurd, unless he should claim prophetic, heralding a future in the past already there or saying there always when there is nothing: either there wearing nothing and prevent the annihilation that it can not escape its long-term process which is rehashing and eternity.
