Wie im Vorjahr haben wir uns bemüht, allen etwas zu geben. Den Volksgenossen, die aus den Gauen des Reiches herkamen, um in der deutschen Verwaltungs-und Parteiarbeit, im Rahmen des Wirtschaftsausbaus oder als Soldaten und Männer von SS und Polizei hier ihre Pflicht zu tun. Möge der Kalender dazu dienen, ihre Kenntnis von diesem Raum, seinen Menschen und Problemen zu vertiefen. Den deutschen Menschen, die hier seit Generationen lebten, kämpften und die deutsche Stellung hielten, möge er durch die Kunde von deutscher Leistung in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart das Vertrauen in die eigene Kraft und die Kraft der völkischen Gemeinschaft stärken. Der Bauer und die Hausfrau finden wieder viele nützliche Hinweise und Ratschläge, und auch für den Feierabend nach des Tages Mühe und Last es gesorgt. Die Blätter des Kalendarium führen uns in Städte, die gleich Krakau an und vor des Reiches Grenzen eine geschichtliche Aufgabe als Vorposten deutscher Kraftausstrahlung zu erfüllen hatten und so für die Weite des deutschen Lebensraumes künden. Ein deutscher Maler aus Ungarn, Hercz-Pereli, hat uns dazu einprägsame Zeichnungen gegeben . . . Im heimatskundlichen Teil haben wir diesmal das Gebiet der mittelalterlichen deutschen Kolonisation besonders berücksichtigt. Von der Bewährung volksdeutscher Männer an den Fronten unseres Entscheidungskampfes wird im Abschnitt "Große Gegenwart" erzählt Ein besonderes Augenmerk haben wir diesmal der Sippenforschung zugewendet und uns entschlossen, durch ein Preisausschreiben das Interesse der Deutschen des Generalgouvernements auf diese Arbeit zu lenken. Gerade die Beschäftigung mit der eigenen Herkunft stärkt das Gefühl deutscher Volksverbundenheit und zeigt jedem den Platz, den er in der großen deutschen Blutsgemeinschaft einzunehmen hat" - Deutsches / Drittes Reich, Großdeutschland im 2.

Rare first and only edition of a bilingual (Latin and French) work on the medical properties of milk and snuff, the latter made from pulverised tobacco leaves, by the otherwise unknown "licentiate in medicine", M. Vloers.The first part of the work is a lengthy treatise arguing against the claim that fresh milk is the cause of bowel problems, and stating instead that milk is easily digestible, followed by a listing of the many medical attributes of milk. The second part discusses the effects of the use of snuff. "Those who make use of snuff, . . . are misled by the belief that this nicotian substance relieves them of mucus. But, he says, it has the same harmful effect as if one took a daily purgative" (Arents). The unpleasant reactions to the use of snuff, such as sneezing, sniffing and snorting, indicate that it is an unhealthy, unclean habit and some of the ailments likely to ensue from a habitual use of the powder are: vertigo, breast afflictions, heart trouble and congestion of the blood. Hypochondriacs and hysterical or very slender people are those worst affected by the use of snuff. So snuff should only be employed with caution, and should rarely be prescribed by physicians.Waterstains throughout the gutter and foot margins, running into the text.

(Cockalorum 162: 'Suggstions from subscribers are always welcomed, and a kindly Providence seems to direct towards the Golden Cockerel exciting literary material - for instance, this eye-witness account of a three-year voyage with Captain Cook, previously unpublished in English. As if that were not enough, the artist chosen to illustrate this great book produced a collection of engravings which were revolutionary, and a highly successful step forward in the adaptation of the wood-engraving medium to modern art. Blocks like his 'Icebergs with Aurora Australis' fill me with wonder and joy, and a pride in having been directly responsible for giving him the opportunity to express himself in these terms. The Renaissance of art following the disturbance of war may be worth considerable notice when sufficient time has elapsed for us to stand back and see it in perspective.') 13 wood engravings by Peter Barker-Mill.

        [Kingsmill primer]. [Ponape Island (Micronesia), Mission Press, 1858]. 4to (24 x 20 cm). Set in roman type with rules dividing the page into 5 compartments.

      J.E. Alden, "A press in paradise: the beginnings of printing in Micronesia", in: Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America, 38 (1944), pp. 269-283, item 14. A rudimentary one-page primer for the language of the Gilbert Islands in the South Pacific, printed in "a few copies" for the missionary Hiram Bingham junior (stationed on Apaiang Island), whose wife had prepared it, and produced by the printing office of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) at their mission on Ponape Island. It was intended as an aid to teach the natives the alphabet and take the first steps toward teaching them to read. The language, very close to that of the Caroline Islands where it was printed, is a member of the Austronesian family of languages, which includes Maori. The Gilbert Islands were often called "Kingsmill" in the 19th-century, hence the title "Kingsmill primer" in the manuscript note on the copy in the ABCFM collection at Harvard College Library, which continues: "printed at Ponape, Sept. 1858". With the upper right corner torn off, not approaching the printed letters or rules, a couple small marginal tears, 1 small hole in a blank area and a few small spots, but still in very good condition. An ephemeral teaching aid and one of the earliest examples of printing in Micronesia: an extraordinary survival.

        L'air et les songes Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      s.l.|(Paris): S.n. (Journal des débats), 1944. Fine. S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1944), 13,5x21cm & 2 pages in-4, 2 1/2 pages in-8. - Autograph manuscript of the author of 2 and a half pages in-8 published in the issue dated 11 May 1944 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary review published on the occasion of the release of air and dreams of Gaston Bachelard complete 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. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 2 pages et demie in-8 publiée dans le numéro du 11 Mai 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 de L'air et les songes de Gaston Bachelard On joint le tapuscrit complet.   « L'homme est d'abord rêverie, puissance d'imaginer avant d'être sensibilité et raison », l'analyse de ce nouvel essai de Bachelard est l'occasion pour Blanchot de confronter le philosophe aux incertitudes de sa théorie qui tend à se déliter dans la pluralité de ses formes. « Qu'est-ce pour lui que l'image et l'imagination ? On ne le voit pas nettement ». Cependant cette critique parfois sévère est surtout une manoeuvre pour mettre en exergue la réelle valeur de l'oeuvre de Bachelard, qui est également un des grands thèmes de la pensée Blanchotienne: la puissance créatrice du langage poétique: "L'image littéraire est un fait premier; elle est la poésie même; (...) se demander s'il y à en nous une poésie d'avant les mots, d'avant les images, un en deçà poétique, une blancheur et un silence que le langage essiaerait de reproduire, c'est méconnaitre l'activité littéraire qui une activité naturelle, originelle, correspondant à une action de l'imagination - faculté de produire l'irréel qui est la conscience même - sur le langage."   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.
