Publications spéciales, fondées par sa Majesté le Roi Fouad Ier, continuées sous les auspices de sa Majesté le Roi Farouk Ier. The inscriptions called ?graffiti? today are mostly an unofficial remembrance, a self-presentation, more often connected with vandalism than with art or socially respected self-expression. Visitors to the pyramids left Greek, Latin, and Arabic graffiti, often next to those from Pharaonic times. To these layers of human presence, modern tourist graffiti, starting with the 16th century onwards, and reaching the peak of their use in 19th century, was added. ?It is certain that tourists are gradually spoiling the monuments of Egypt by writing their names on them. Persons of taste are irritated when they come across them, and the directors of the antiquities exhaust themselves in searching for hard words in which to censure such practices. And yet, if the archaeologists and historians of today would reflect a little, what fine fellows these inscriptions-makers are, and what an amount of ingenious work they are preparing for the students of the future.? (Gaston Maspero: ?New Light on Ancient Egypt?).

        "St. Giles Cripplegate / Sept 1944": watercolor on paper, signed lower right, titled lower left

      London, 1944. 1 vols. Image 10-3/4 x 13-1/2 inches, handsomely matted and framed to 19 x 22 inches overall. Fine condition. 1944 Watercolor of John Milton's Blitzed Burial Place A superb rendering of the surviving church tower, surrounded by the wreckage of blitz-torn London's East End. Trier did several such highly skillful studies, on the spot and in pencil, but this is the first watercolor we have seen. A handsome, evocative work. The church, notes John Betjeman, is now "the only church among the glassy slabs of the Barbican Scheme" and is the final resting place of John Milton who in 1674 was buried near his father in the chancel of the church. The interior of the church, dating from the 15th century, suffered extensive WWII bomb damage and was rebuilt in 1960.

        Illustrirte Zeitung Leipzig Nr.5037 vom Mai 1944, mitsamt dem Gemäldezyklus "Die 4 Tageszeiten" von Willy Kriegel: 4 Originale, in kleinerer Fassung 1943 ff

      Leipzig, J.J.Weber Verlag, 1944.. . (Fortsetzung von Nr.12336:) - "Willy Kriegel und seine Tageszeiten", vierseitiger Bildbericht von Dr.Kurt Karl Eberlein, mit Fotoaufnahme "Professor Willy Kriegel im Atelier bei der Arbeit am "Tageszeitenzyklus", zwei ganzseitigen Farbwiedergaben "Abend" und "Nacht", Schwarzwald-Landschaften aus dem "Tageszeiten-Zyklus" von Willy Kriegel, Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung München 1943" und drei weiteren Wiedergaben von Kriegel'schen Zeichnungen: " München, das durch seine großen Kunstausstellungen wieder nach des Führers Willen der zur Stadt der deutschen Kunst wurde, hat auch dem deutschen Volke den Dresdner Künstler bekannt gemacht, den die Kunstkenner längst beachteten und kannten. Ein Bilderzyklus der "Vier Jahreszeiten" auf der Großen Deutschen Kunstausstellung1943 war der große Erfolg des sächsischen Meisters. Der Künstler, der im Kriege in einen stillen, hoch gelegenen Haus am Schluchsee im badischen Schwarzwald sein Heim gefunden hatte, hat in den vier leuchtenden Landschaften "Morgen", "Mittag", "Abend" und "Nacht" die badische Schwarzwaldlandschaft, die durch Hans Thoma und andere badische Maler in die deutsche Kunst eingegangen war, in vier Gedichte verwandelt. Die vier Symphonien in Grün, Blau, Rosa, Silber, ganz von dem Lichtglanz des Himmels erfüllt, vier Sätze eines Schwarzwaldmotivs, das Schluchsee heißt, klingen vor uns diese badischen Landschaften auf, Gleichnisse des Tages, des Lichtes, der Seele, des Lebens, voll von jenem höheren Frieden, den nur die Gottnatur den Schauenden, Fühlenden, Dankenden schenkt. Man beachte, wie nordisch Prof.Kriegel die Blickbühne baut, wie er den Höhenraum sucht - im Gegensatz zum Alemannen, der den ostisch geschlossen Tiefenraum des See- und Waldwinkels bevorzugt - wie er alles dem Lichterlebnis unterordnet, das den Farbbau bestimmt. Vor allem aber beglückt es, wie in Willy Kriegels Werk die Klein-und Feinwelt der Natur zur Kunstwelt des Bildes geworden ist, die für den Maler wie für den Beschauer doch immer das Letzte und Höchste sein wird." / Irja, von Anelma Vuorio, seinerzeit Luftschutz-Lotta, mit Fotoabbildung der finnischen Dichterin / Gedicht "Alte Kastanie im Frühling", mit Fotoabbildung von Kurt Schaarschuch-Bavaria / Der Vesuv, Text und Aufnahmen von Heinz Rudolph (mit zwei großen Fotoabbildungen) / günther Pacyna: Europa kann sich selbst ernähren, mit zwei Fotoabbildungen von Otto Scheuer-Bavaria / Bildbericht "Tiere ohne Kopf", Text und Aufnahmen von Dr.G. von Frankenberg / "Zahnbehandlung der Bevölkerung einer Großstadt im fünften Kriegsjahr", Text und Aufnahmen von Lenka von Koerber (insgesamt sechs Fotoabbildungen: (kieferorthopädische Behandlung, Universitätsklinik für Zahn- und Kieferkrankheiten, ausländische Studenten üben sich in der Herstellung zahnärztliche Prothesen zur Vorbereitung für ihr Staatsexamen, sachgemäße Zahnbehandlung trotz der Luftangriffe, schwierige Kieferbruchbehandlung, zahntechnisches Labor) / Tierseelische Erlebnisse (Erkennen die Tiere ihre Stimme?

März bis zum 30. April (Der Kampf im Osten, der Luftkrieg - "war schon im März die deutsche Luftwaffe gegen die britisch-nordamerikanischen Terrorangriffe äußerst erfolgreich, indem sie 1234 Feindmaschinen, in der überwiegenden Mehrzahl viermotorige Bomber, abschoß, so ist mit der Steigerung der feindlichen Lufttätigkeit im April auch eine Steigerung der deutschen Verteidigungskraft parallel gegangen; sie konnte in diesen Monat 1392 britisch-nordamerikanische Terrorflugzeuge abschießen, und zwar 1264 viermotorigeBomber und 266 Jagdflugzeuge. Dementsprechend ist auch für die britisch-nordamerikanischen Luftstreitkräfte der Ausfall an fliegendem Personal sehr hoch; er beträgt für den April allein fast 11.000 Mann. Zu diesen festgestellten Abschlüssen kommen noch die von uns nicht feststellbaren Verluste feindlicher Flugzeuge bei ihrem Rückflug über See, über Schweden und die Schweiz.

Supreme Court of the United States, Washington, D.C., Chambers of Felix Frankfurter, July 13 [1944?]. To Judge [Louis E.] Levinthal. In part, "One of the...satisfactions your Presidency gave me...the understanding you've had of the circumscription of this job ?" and the delicate courtesy you have shown me that makes it more & not less difficult to deny your latest wish. But I cannot attend such a gathering at the forthcoming Zionist Convention publicly ?" it would be worse to be in 'private' attendance. There is now no such thing as such a private gathering and covert privacy is a too fertile opportunity for mischievous misrepresentation. We are leaving [sic] in days as Lincoln said, when it is not easy to say anything sensible, nor to avoid more harm than good by any appearance. I wish it were otherwise. With all good wishes. Very sincerely." Louis E. Levinthal (1892-1976), Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia from 1937-1959, served as President of the Zionist Organization of America from 1941-1943.

        Les secrets du rêve. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      S.n. (Journal des débats) 1944 - - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1944), 13,5x21,5cm & 2 pages in-4, 2 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 2 pages et demie in-8 publiée dans le numéro du 6 Avril 1944 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 des secrets du rêve de Luc Durtain. On joint le tapuscrit complet. Si Blanchot ouvre et conclue cette chronique sur Freud, s'il invoque les autres grands penseurs du rêve, c'est aussi un regard personnel que nous dévoile cette chronique onirique. Déviant sans cesse de son sujet d'étude, le livre de Durtain, Blanchot imagine ainsi une histoire par les rêves : "une chronique n'ayant pour lien apparent que le mouvement des nuits, comme les autobiographies n'ont d'autres loi de composition que la suite des jours. [.] Ce journal extraordinaire que serait l'oeuvre de la durée telle que le sommeil la vit et où l'auteur lui-même, établissant le mémento de sa vie diurne, aurait le sentiment de pénétrer dans une forêt de transposition, dans un palais fermé de miroirs dont nulle clé ne pourrait dissiper l'enchantement. " Car, précédant les nombreuses interprétations de "la nature du rêve" par les penseurs et poètes, c'est une question plus fondamentale que pose cet article, une problématique qui traversera toute l'oeuvre critique et romanesque de Blanchot : "décrire simplement ce que c'est que : réver." 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]

      Autograph manuscript of the author of 2 and a half pages in-4 published in the issue dated 2 March 1944 the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary review published on the occasion of the publication in the new collection Gallimard devoted to "The Young Philosophy" from the book "The concern sincerity" Yvon Belaval complete typescript is attached. In the writings of Blanchot, philosophical criticism acquires its own autonomy which makes it impossible to distinguish between the original thought Belaval and luminous interpretation of offers in a few pages, Maurice Blanchot. "The true man wants to break with loneliness when locked both reflection and weakness. He dreams of a return to "we" primitive, but simply the dream: he delights in his scruples, he speaks only to himself and speaks only of itself, it fails, and enjoys his failures. " No concern for fairness, so Blanchot, but a rigorous intellectual mechanics that do not not fear to overcome the limitations of text designed to develop its philosophical potential.

Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Full typescript and autograph sheet working papers are joined Maurice Blanchot. In this literary column published on the occasion of the publication of The Life of Balzac by André Billy, Blanchot abandons soon biographer to describe the work of incessant rewriting Balzac. He analyzes Balzac's work through the prism of the struggle between the idea and matter, "the idea that will make sense of all his work (...) is the destructive power of thought. (...) The creation of the novelist (...) is threatened by the power that entails. Its main purpose of his enemy; it is infinitely wary sense that it gives.

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. (1944) 13,5x21,5cm & 2 pages in-4 2 1/2 pages in-8

The inscriptions called "graffiti" today are mostly an unofficial remembrance, a self-presentation, more often connected with vandalism than with art or socially respected self-expression. Visitors to the pyramids left Greek, Latin, and Arabic graffiti, often next to those from Pharaonic times. To these layers of human presence, modern tourist graffiti, starting with the 16th century onwards, and reaching the peak of their use in 19th century, was added. "It is certain that tourists are gradually spoiling the monuments of Egypt by writing their names on them. Persons of taste are irritated when they come across them, and the directors of the antiquities exhaust themselves in searching for hard words in which to censure such practices. And yet, if the archaeologists and historians of today would reflect a little, what fine fellows these inscriptions-makers are, and what an amount of ingenious work they are preparing for the students of the future." (Gaston Maspero: "New Light on Ancient Egypt")..
