        Manuscrit autographe complet de la préface aux Aventures d'Arthur Gordon Pym d'Edgar Allan Poe

      1944 - - s.d. [1944], 22,5x17cm, 15 feuilles. - « Les Aventures d'Arthur Gordon Pym sont un des grands livres du cœur humain. » Précieux manuscrit autographe complet et signé par Gaston Bachelard de la préface aux Aventures d'Arthur Gordon Pym d'Edgar Allan Poe, rééditées chez Stock en 1944. 15 feuilles à l'encre noire, avec quelques notes de l'auteur au crayon. Nombreux mots soulignés, biffures et corrections. Il s'agit de la deuxième étude que Gaston Bachelard consacre à l'ouvrage de Poe, la première - partielle - étant incluse dans L'eau et les rêves, essai sur l'imagination de la matière, publié deux ans auparavant. Bachelard est alors professeur d'histoire et de philosophie des sciences à la Sorbonne et dirige l'Institut d'Histoire des Sciences. Le récit maritime énigmatique de Poe et sa fin abrupte et incohérente suscitèrent notamment en France de nombreuses théories interprétatives (Marie Bonaparte, Léon Lemonnier, Jorge Luis Borges, Jean Ricardou). L'odyssée d'Arthur Gordon Pym en Antarctique explore la sombre relation entre l'homme et le cosmos, « le drame de l'homme en face du monde » comme l'indique Bachelard. L'approche psycho analytique de Bachelard sert d'introduction au texte et invite le lecteur à adopter une « lecture doublée », déjà expérimentée chez certains (dont Marie Bonaparte dans son analyse freudienne du texte), qui cherche à dévoiler les profondeurs psychologiques cachées dans ce roman d'aventures. Bachelard souligne dans la préface l'importance primordiale du rêve - un élément récurrent de sa pensée - et de l'imagination comme puissance première de l'esprit humain, soutenant que l'imagination du romancier se nourrit plus d'onirisme que d'expériences du monde réel. En cela Poe fait partie selon lui « des écrivains trop rares qui ont travaillé à la limite de la rêverie et de la pensée objective ». L'écrivain révèlerait à travers les naufrages du marin Pym la préexistence d'un « rêve dramatique » qui aurait servi d'inspiration ; le séjour de Pym dans la cale du baleinier Grampus renverrait également à l'idée d'un « labyrinthe psychologique ». Bachelard effectue une complète et bienveillante relecture du texte sous un prisme particulier, qu'il appelle « critique onirique » et non littéraire. L'auteur cite par ailleurs de nombreux théoriciens de l'ouvrage, et adresse une note marginale à son éditeur : « Je donnerai le numéro des pages d'après l'édition. J'ai donné les références sur l'édition Calmann Lévy ». Les références au texte de Poe sont en conséquence rédigées au crayon, ainsi que quelques repentirs dans le texte. Unique témoignage de la genèse d'un grand texte du « nouvel esprit littéraire » de Bachelard.

        Contree, with one etching by Pablo Picasso.

      Contree. Robert Desnos, with one etching by Pablo Picasso. Robert Godet, Paris 1944. Limited edition of 213 numbered copies of which this copy is one of 200 in Lafuma pur fil paper. With one etching in frontispiece, loose as issued, with inverted signature and date Picasso 23.D.43. A collection of 25 poems by Robert Desnos, illustrated with 23 reproductions of different part of the etching to unveiling to the reader, page after page, the different aspects of the frontispiece. The etching depicts a seated figure in both sides, front and back, with millions of fine lines supporting the figure, the drawing acquires volume and intricacy, and questioning our sense of perception of the whole piece. The poems of the collection are highly militant, alluding to the occupation and imminent liberation; Desnos was arrested by Gestapo on February 1944, before the publication of the book, and died 15 months later. In very good condition.

The complete First Edition set in three volumes; all with dustjackets; signed by Douglas Southall Freeman on the front endpaper. Bud Robertson writing in the Nevins bibliography calls this study "The ablest descriptive and evaluative study of the leading generals (and their campaigns) in Lee's army; massively documented, movingly written, highly authoritative, and faintly smug" [Nevins I, 30].

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. und integriertem Gedichtmanuskript.

      O. O., 9. V. 1944. - 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Kl.-4to. An den Schriftsteller Georg Schneider (1902-1972): "[.] Ich bin auch mit der Durchsicht Ihrer Sonette nicht ganz fertig geworden. Gerade dafür braucht man eine gewisse Disposition, Ruhe und Gleichgewicht. All das besitze ich im Augenblick weder physisch noch seelisch, da mich ein äusseres Ereignis wieder einmal - und noch tiefer, als ich es ohnedies auf meinen Teil gewohnt war - in die Abgründe künstlerischer Anfechtung schleuderte. Es macht mir Qual zu kritisieren. Auch weiss ich ja zu gut, dass es nichts nutzt. Jeder muss helfen, und die Ergebnisse müssen akzeptiert werden oder abgelehnt, ohne dass es den Autor kümmern soll. Nehmen Sie also meine sporadischen Anmerkungen nicht tragisch. Sie sind bona fide gegeben und auf Ihre Aufforderung hin. Aber eigentlich habe ich kein Recht dazu, denn ich denke zu hoch von der absoluten Einsamkeit des Künstlers, einer Einsamkeit, an der man nur ersticken oder zum Sänger werden kann, nachdem die Unschuld der Kunst einmal dahin und Frohmut nicht mehr mit ihr im Bunde ist. Fassen Sie auch das Harfenkreuz, um dessen Rückgabe ich bitte, weniger als persönliche denn als künstlerische Konfession auf. Unter Anderem sehen Sie darin, was uns beide unterscheidet. Ich bin viel weniger kontemplativ als Sie, und obwohl auch meine Lyrik stark ins Gedankliche geht, sehe ich im zyklischen Aufbau stets eine Entwicklung, die eher episch ist. Vielleicht ist das ein Fehler. Und vielleicht liegt es an dieser Marotte, dass ich rein gedanklichen Entwicklungen nur schwer zu folgen imstande bin [.]". - Das mit "Nachtstück" betitelte Gedicht mit drei Strophen zu je vier Zeilen. - Wolf von Niebelschütz, der bis 1944 zwei Gedichtbände und eine Erzählung veröffentlicht hatte, wurde 1940 nach Etampes bei Paris eingezogen. Dort entstand neben einigen Gedichten und Essays sein opus magnum, der galante Roman "Der blaue Kammerherr", ein "poetisches Kunstwerk ersten Ranges" (Haberland, S. 15). - Eigenhändige Briefe von Niebelschütz und noch dazu aus der Entstehungszeit des "Blauen Kammerherrn" sind äußerst selten. - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr. Monogramm.

Stamp of the Movimento Federalista Europeo of Rome to front wrapper and small ownership stamp to imprint leaf at the end. Horizontal split to spine just affecting the text block, short tears to fore edge of wrappers, small rust hole to title, leaves lightly browned at edges; a very good copy of a very scarce item. First published edition of one of the foundation documents of European Federalism, known as the Ventotene Manifesto, after the Italian island on which the authors were held as political prisoners during the Second World War. "A 'secret' document proposing a solution for Europe's perpetual state of war and political violence, [this short essay] was originally circulated in mimeographed form with the title 'Per un'Europa libera e unita. Progetto d'un manifesto (For a Free and United Europe. A Draft Manifesto). It was a political statement drawn up, between winter 1941 and spring 1942, by Altiero Spinelli (1907-1986) and Ernesto Rossi (1897-1967). The Manifesto called for a break with Europe's past to form a new political system through a restructuring of politics and extensive social reform. It was presented not as an ideal, but as the best option for Europe's post-war condition" (Books that Made Europe, p. 340).
