        Le premier roman de Joyce. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      Autograph manuscript of the author of 2 and a half pages in-8 published in the issue dated 18 May 1944 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Important literary review published on the occasion of the publication of the new edition of the French translation of "Dedalus", the first novel by James Joyce. Full typescript is attached. 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 In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric,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

      n.p., May 1944. 8" x 10.5". "Rare Autograph Letter Signed ?Eleanor Roosevelt? as First Lady, 1p, 8? x 10.5? (visible). [May 1944, no place] To Mr. [Walter Francis] White. Double matted with a photograph of Mrs. Roosevelt and attractively framed to 20? x 17?. In apparent fine condition. In full ?I want to add my words of appreciation & gratitude to this twenty-fifth anniversary of your service in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. What you do for your own people is indirectly done for us all, since, when conditions are bad for the colored they are usually bad for the white as well. You have been patient & courageous & inspired others to unselfish service & I send you my best wishes for many more years of profitable work.? The May 26, 1944, edition of The New York Times headlined ?600 Pay tribute / to Walter White / Willkie and Mrs. Roosevelt Join / in Honoring Him for 25 Years? / Service to Negroes.? In part, ?Wendell Willkie and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt joined last night with 600 citizens and civic leaders of all parties and faiths in paying tribute to Walter White at a dinner in the Hotel Roosevelt in celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of his service as secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People ... Mr. Willkie gave $5,000 from the Wendell Willkie Trust Fund, established with the proceeds of his book ?One World.? It was his first public appearance since his withdrawal from the contest for the Republican Presidential nomination [he had been his party?s nominee against FDR in 1940]. Mrs. Roosevelt, who brought the President?s greetings to Mr. White, added her praise of the Negro leader, by saying that he always had known how to grasp victory from defeat...? Photocopy of the article is included. Undoubtedly, Mrs. Roosevelt personally presented the letter here offered to White expounding on her praise since she was, ostensibly, speaking at the dinner representing her husband, the President. ?After Walter Francis White (1893-1955) graduated from Atlanta University in 1916, the son of Madeline and George White left his job selling insurance and joined the Atlanta branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the influential civil rights organization he would eventually lead through four decades of the twentieth century. Able to ?pass? as white because he was light-skinned with blue-eyes, and armed with boundless wits and energy, White became the NAACP's foremost undercover investigator of Southern lynchings, and he personally traveled thousands of miles every year between 1918 and 1927, and reported first-hand on forty-one lynchings, eight race riots and at least two major cases of peonage. ""?I Investigate Lynchings,? a 1929 piece by White in H.L. Mencken's ?The American Mercury,? is an overview of this decade of his investigations, reports that had appeared in the NAACP's monthly ?The Crisis,? or were serialized in major African American newspapers like the ?Chicago Defender? and ?Pittsburgh Courier,? and which had reached national audiences through periodicals such as the ?New Republic,? ?American Mercury?,? Nation? and ?Saturday Evening Post?... ?In 1931 White succeeded James Weldon Johnson as the national secretary of the NAACP, and he would later chronicle much of that important organization's mid-century struggles for civil rights in his autobiography and in the posthumously published ?How Far the Promised Land?? (1955). In July 1943, White and NAACP Special Counsel Thurgood Marshall co-authored ?What Caused the Detroit Riot?,? an analysis of the June 1943 race riot that left thirty-four people dead, twenty-five of them black. In 1944 and 1945 During World War II, White visited the European, North African and Pacific theaters of war, sending back to the ?New York Post? and other periodicals accounts of what he saw, including his analyses of the experiences of black servicemen on American military bases, much of which he later described in ?A Rising Wind: A Report on the Negro Soldier in the European Theatre of War? (1945)...? [Georgia Writers Hall of Fame]"

      (Chicago), (1944). Good +. Oblong red gilt leather string-tied 4to. photo album, 7.25" x 11.25" approx. With 47 5" x 7" B&W photographs mounted recto and verso to 25 leaves, plus several pieces of related scrap. Album good only with extremities heavily worn and leather separating from top board. But contents entirely sound and easily very good or better. Commemorative photo album specially assembled for retiring executive Arthur Hatch (with his name gilt to front cover). The album chronicles the December 14, 1944 retirement party held for Hatch (who was the area manager of the Ford auto dealers Chicago branch) at the Morrison Hotel, Chicago. The event also welcomed W.K Edmunds as his replacement, with the dinner menu and program brochure mounted to the interior. Several photographs showing attendee Henry Ford II. Other images include various attendees posing with Ford engines, a complete dealer parts counter recreated in-situ (top right), plus hardware displays, and the evening's entertainments, which included acrobats and an erotic dancer (top left). A particularly striking pair of photos, in a brash display of period corporate male chauvinism, show an unnamed man holding a shotgun opposite the aforementioned topless female dancer. Also present are images of toasts and other apparent burlesques, posed group shots, images of diners and attendees, etc. A frank auto industry memento.

        Alain Campbell White Letters to Frederick Gamage

      Self Written, Summerville, Littchfield and New York 1944 - Alain Campbell White letters to Frederick Gamage cover the years from April 4, 1935 to September 15, 1944. For this ten year period there are 364 dated letters and 28 incomplete letters (lacking front date page). The letters are an ongoing correspondence between White and Gamage which covers all aspects of problem chess. The letters show a development of mentor (White), encouraging ad occasionally prodding his protégé (Gamage) in developing skills in problem construction. As the letters progress over this ten year period, the reader can observe the relationship develop between the two men, from a formal intercourse to a more comradely banter. White offered suggestions, comments and themes for problems. White¿s vast and profound technical knowledge, his artistic appreciation, his ability in expressing himself, and his enthusiastic and friendly encouragement were the great inspiration of many problems Gamage constructed, and he was lucky enough to be among his host of correspondents. Some of the letters were multiple pages hand typed, but often hand written, some unsigned or just initialed, usually with the location White was residing and the date written. Included with the letters are the limited edition work by Alain White on Gamage Frederick Gamage: An Artist in Chess Problems and Mike Prcic¿s book Frederick Gamage. The letters in the latter work have been reproduced from the original letters offered now. Newman Guttman was one of a few problemists to visit Frederick Gamage. After the passing of Gamage, the letters from Alain White along with Gamage¿s other chess papers were given to Guttman. He, in turn, gave these papers to Edgar Holladay. Holladay came into the possession of what problemists would consider as ¿treasures,¿ one-of-a-kind items from famous and well-known problemists. Robert Moore and Holladay were good friends and these were passed to him by Holladay¿s wife, Rita. Serious buyers may inquire about more information regarding this collection. Condition: The letters have folds for postage, some occasional stains, and occasional edge wear else a very good collection. They are housed in individual archival holders held in a multiple three ring binders. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        LAND OF UNLIKENESS Inscribed to Randall Jarrell

      Cummington Press, (Cummington, MA) 1944 - Publisher's blue boards stamped in orange, title page printed in red and black with woodcut in blue by Gustav Wolf. Housed in a half blue morocco leather slipcase. Introduction by Allen Tate. Lowell's scarce first book, limited to a total of 250 copies printed. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper to poet Randall Jarrell: "For Randall/with affection and admiration/and no apologies for dogma,/Cal." Lowell was nicknamed Caligula at preparatory school, and the diminutive "Cal" stuck with him throughout his life. Lowell and Jarrell met at Kenyon College, where they were roommates, and became lifelong friends, each providing valuable criticism of the other's work. In 1965, Lowell eulogized the friend who had been one of two beneficiaries of his will: "Randall Jarrell was the only man I have ever met who could make other writers feel that t heir work was more important to him than his own." Along with the copies Lowell presented to John Crowe Ransom--at the University of Texas--and Allen Tate--in a private collection--this is one of the three most compelling association copies imaginable. Allen Tate, in his introduction to this collection, tempers his praise with a fair assessment of Lowell's current stature and potential, heralding a lasting presence in American poetry: "The history of poetry shows that good verse does not inevitably make its way; but unless, after the war, the small public for poetry shall exclude all except the democratic poets who enthusiastically greet the advent of the slave-society, Robert Lowell will have to be reckoned with." Two years later, Lowell would win the Pulitzer Prize for LORD WEARY'S CASTLE, at the age of 30. Small ink date of 1944 at the bottom right corner of the title page, likely in Jarrell's hand. Mild sunning to the spine which has a small, neat repair at the head; lacking the plain tissue dustwrapper. Near Fine in a Fine box [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        STORY MAGAZINE VOL. XXIV NO. 106 - AFTERMATH OF A LENGTHY REJECTION SLIP - PUBLISHER MARVIN MALONE'S COPY

      New York: Story Magazine, Inc., 1944. Quarto; printed wrappers; 104pp. Light wear to extremities, with sunning to spine and lower edge of front wrapper; Very Good+. The March/April 1944 issue of Story Magazine contains Bukowski's first appearance in print at 24 years old ?- Aftermath of a Lengthy Rejection Slip. To put things into context, it precedes his first broadside (20 Tanks From Kasseldown, 1946) by two years, his first chapbook (Flower, Fist, and Bestial Wail, 1960) by 16 years, and his first book (It Catches My Heart In Its Hands, 1963) by 19 years. In a 1994 interview, Bukowski said "I can remember my first major publication, a short story in Whit Burnett's and Martha Foley's Story magazine, 1944. I had been sending them a couple of short stories a week for maybe a year and a half. The story they finally accepted was mild in comparison to the others. I mean in terms of content and style and gamble and exploration and all that. Got another story accepted about that time in Carese Crosby's portfolio and after that, I packed it in. I threw away all the stories and concentrated upon drinking. I didn't feel that the publishers were ready and that although I was ready, I could be readier and I was also disgusted with what I read as accepted front-line literature. So I drank and became one of the best drinkers anywhere, which takes some talent also." This was the personal copy of Marvin Malone, the long-time editor of The Wormwood Review, and comes with a note from his daughter stating it as such. In 1960 Malone solicited Bukowski's address from Carl Larsen, who published Bukowski's first chapbook. Malone took the liberty of sending him several issues of Wormwood, and received some poems from Bukowski for consideration. In issue 7 (October 20, 1962), Bukowski made his debut in the literary magazine with "Thank God for Alleys." Malone clearly valued Bukowski's continuing contributions to Wormwood. In fact, Bukowski was the most frequent contributor to Wormwood overall, appearing in 97 issues. When Malone died in 1996, he still had a substantial backlog of unpublished Bukowski poems that were to appear in future issues of the review (all subsequently returned to Bukowski's widow). The following quote taken from a letter written by Bukowski to Malone over their long association, and shows Bukowski's reciprocal respect for the Wormwood publisher: "I have never had any magazine treat me like dear old Wormie...I'm lucky. And I'm lucky that Wormie has been around. I sometimes think of you. Then I think, it's lucky we have never met. It's lucky we have a professional distance. It's lucky you do what you do and I do what I do and we do it without politics and personal relationships. It's lucky, Malone, lucky, we have been a splendid pair. I salute your guts and your way" (1978). The earliest appearance of the "Dirty Old Man" of American poetry, an attractive copy with terrific provenance. Dorbin D1.

The majority are combination geographical / topographical maps. In some cases, portions of maps were pasted on larger maps. Trimming and reassembly by Keyes to fit his needs has resulted in the partial loss of mapmaker information. Some maps are linen-backed for long-term heavy use. Many of the maps were set into large, heavy clear acetate sleeves with old plastic tape remnants at the margins. Some maps are stamped ?CONFIDENTIAL? in red.

        PICCOLA PRETURA. Oltre il varco c'è il paese. (MANOSCRITTO originale autografo).

      Manoscritto autografo dell'Autore del suo romanzo più famoso, dal quale venne anche ricavato il film di Pietro Germi ?In nome della legge?. Sette quaderni (dimensioni 20x28 cm) di 88 pagine l'uno. Copertina rosa. Quaderno prodotto dalla Società Cremona Nuova, nel 1944. Sulla copertina del primo quaderno il titolo manoscritto ?Piccola Pretura. ?oltre il varco c'è il paese?. ?" Scrittura ad inchiostro, calligrafia ben leggibile, con correzioni, biffature, aggiunte (a volte con inchiostro rosso). All'inizio del primo quaderno è applicata una carta trasparente con il disegno a china raffigurante co n una veduta a volo d'uccello i luoghi di svolgimento del romanzo, nella realtà il centro di Barrafranca, con pretura, chiesa, Municipio, barbiere, Poste, ecc. ?" A pag. 1 il distico: ?I fatti e i personaggi di questo libro sono del tutto immaginari e, pertanto, qualunque riferimento ad avvenimenti o a persone reali sarebbe infondato?. Data: Roma 10 dicembre 1946 / 18 febbraio 1947. E la sigla di Lo Schiavo. Il quaderno 7, in fine, contiene un elenco dei personaggi di Piccola Pretura: Autorità Giudiziaria, Polizia, il Dottore, il Barone, don Fifì, don Peppino Cilombo, massaro Turi Passalacqua, il Sindaco, il Parroco, ecc.Alla fine del quaderno, spillati, due cartoline e una lettera indirizzate a Lo Schiavo (grafia usata anche Loschiavo), e due cartoline illustrate degli altari della chiesa di Barrafranca. - Il romanzo venne pubblicato nel 1948 dall'editore Colombo, Roma, ed ebbe immediato successo: una seconda edizione venne pubblicata già nello stesso anno. Una terza e una quarta edizione nel 1949, anche sull'onda del film di Germi ?In nome della legge? tratto dal libro (tra gli sceneggiatori anche Fellini, Monicelli e Pinelli). Nel 1950 le edizioni stampate da Colombo erano già 7. Successivamente Lo Schiavo scrisse altri romanzi in qualche modo ispirati al rapporto tra autorità e potere mafioso: Gli Inesorabili (1950), Condotta di paese (1952); Terra amara (1956): il Mare di Pietra (1960). Giuseppe Guido Lo Schiavo, nato a Palermo nel 1899, morto a Roma nel 1973, è stato uno scrittore, un giurista e un magistrato, esperto in Diritto del Lavoro, Criminologia e Procedura Penale. Il tipo di rapporto tra Pretore e mafia descritto nel suo romanzo Piccola Pretura e poi nel film di Germi suscitò molte polemiche: L'ambiguità di un finale in cui il pretore stringe un patto di lealtà con la banda del mafioso Passalacqua, in "... una concezione romantica e, certo, discutibile del fenomeno mafioso", furono sottolineate da diverse parti , anche da Leonardo Sciascia (La Sicilia nel cinema).

        Typescript, carbon copy, of "With Your Wings", a WARTIME STORY about a decorated black pilot returning home. Accompanied by a Typed Letter presenting the piece to BURGESS MEREDITH, for a possible reading and broadcast

      N.p. [New York?], 1944. Typescript, 3pp. numbered [1]-3, on rectos of 3 leaves of duplicated radioplay typescript (struck through), approximately 600 words. Typed Letter, one page. 1 vols. 10-14/ x 7-1/2 inches. Slightly age-darkened, but very good overall. "With Your Wings" 1944 Steinbeck Story of a Black Pilot Evocative Steinbeck story (or "mood piece") imagining a decorated black pilot returning to his hometown, cheered by his neighbors, and welcomed by his father in the house he grew up in, with the remark: "Son - every black man in the world is going to fly with your wings." In his cover letter to his friend Burgess Meredith, who served in the Air Force during the war, he writes: "DEAR BUZZY: A different version of the following was done for overseas broadcast to the troops by O.W.I.* This is a different version. I don't know whether you would like to use it or not. It has an odd length. I might be a good idea to use it in some one of your shows. If you want it, you are quite welcome to it. It was written against a background of music (imagined music, I mean). Should you desire to use it, I think the story itself will suggest the music. Let me suggest however, that the music be soft, sustained, and all of one piece, and that it do not attempt to be directly descriptive of the piece, but rather of the spirit of the piece. I would suggest that you yourself read it, using the beautiful technique you used in "The Forgotten Village" ... the soft reading that seems not to be reading at all. This is pure mood, and would have to be delivered like soft music. Anyway, there it is, and you're welcome to it - if you want it." *Office of War Information, for which Steinbeck worked during the WW II. UNPUBLISHED until 2014, when the revived Strand Magazine published a version based upon a different typescript from the Steinbeck papers at HRC); a unique draft or variant copy of this moving war-time sketch. From the Estate of BURGESS MEREDITH.
