        Une étude sur l'Apocalypse. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      S.n. (Journal des débats). Autograph manuscript of the author of four and a half pages in-4 published in the issue dated November 3, 1943 the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary review published on the occasion of the publication of the study of Father HM Feret on the Apocalypse of St. John and the Christian view of history. 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 In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric,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. (1945) 13,5x21cm & 4 pages in-4 4 1/2 pages in-8

        Lord's Prayer.

      NY: 1945. A stunning original painting in ink and gouache by the renowned illustrator Arthur Szyk, signed and dated by the artist. The painting measures 7 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches, on illustration board measuring 12 by 9 1/4 inches. This illustrated Lord's Prayer is comprised of fourteen calligraphed lines, illuminated in bright colors in the style of a medieval manuscript. Along the left margin of the page is an intricate border, incorporating portraits of people praying, including a little boy kneeling with his hands folded. A floral border extends along the bottom of the page, and tiny, delicate curls of tracery fill in the border and extend along the top edge. Szyk's work is characterized by its minute detail, and his style is very much in the tradition of Eastern miniaturists. Szyk was born in Lodz, Poland in 1894. His artistic talents became evident at an early age, and he was sent to Paris to study at the Académie Julian when he was a teenager. He was a prolific illustrator of books, many of which were of Jewish content, including his masterpiece, The Haggadah. After World War II, Szyk moved to the United States, where he became one of the chief artists for the Limited Editions Club and contributed illustrations and caricatures to several magazines. This illustration was published in the January 1946 edition of Coronet magazine, inside the front cover. Mounted and framed. On the sheet of illustration board, around the illustration, are publisher's notes. Two small spots of tape residue, light soiling to margins, light toning; the painting is in fine condition.

        MILDRED PIERCE (1945)

      Warner Brothers 1945 - Vintage original 36 x 14" (90 x 35 cm.) insert poster, USA. Joan Crawford, Ann Blyth, Eve Arden, Jack Carson, Zachary Scott, Bruce Bennett, dir: Michael Curtiz; Warner Brothers. The grand noir telling of a mother and daughter relationship gone wrong. James M. Cain's novel was more a story of the Depression and a woman's struggle to overcome that and her mediocre life situations. The Warner Brothers screenplay framed it as a murder mystery, set with high 1940s fashions. Amongst the contributing writers to the script was William Faulkner. After being released from 18 years at MGM, Joan Crawford campaigned hard for a vehicle to bring her back. She won the role, even having to audition for it and later she fought just as hard to win the Academy Award for Best Actress for the role. She always considered it to be the best picture she ever made. It most likely was. Eve Arden, Ann Blyth, the screenplay, the cinematography and the production were all nominated for 1945 Academy Awards. Poster displays the clean, straightforward duotone art which branded Warner Brothers posters of the 1940s. Poster has been conserved and paper-backed. It was folded and the fold lines have been touched-up. A few tiny inter tears and creases have been addressed and the borders cleaned up. NEAR FINE

        Têtes-mortes

      First edition of which there were no large paper copies.Precious copy inscribed by Beckett to his friend the painter Geer (Van Velde) and his wife Lise.Spine very slightly sunned, not serious."What to say of the sliding planes, the shimmering contours, the cut-out figures in the fog, the balance that any little thing can break, breaking and re-forming themselves under our very eyes? How to talk about the colors that breathe and pant? Of the swarming stasis? Of this world without weight, without force, without shadow? Here everything moves, swims, fells, comes back, falls apart, re-forms. Everything stops, non-stop. One would say it's the revolt of the internal molecules of a stone a split second before its disintegration. That is literature" (The van Veldes' Art, or the World and the Trousers, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945).Beckett here is not talking - despite how it may appear - about his literary oeuvre, but about the paintings of Geer Van Velde, going on to add a few lines later "[Bram] Van Velde paints distance. G[eer] Van Velde paints succession." This elegy, published on the occasion of the double exhibition of the Van Veldes (Geer at Maeght's and Bram at the Galerie Mai) is the first important text on these painters, more or less unknown to the public at the time: "We've only just started spouting nonsense about the Van Velde brothers, and I'm the first. It's an honor." This is also the first critical text written directly in French by a young Irish writer who had not, as yet, published anything in France.Thus, the first and most important of Beckett's writings on art, composed at the dawn of his literary career, establishes - right from the start - a fundamental relationship between his developing work and his friends' art: "Thus this text has often been read in a hollow or in the mirror, as one of the rare designations of Beckett's poetry (to come) by the man himself, a sort of anamorphic program of writing," (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique by Pierre Vilar).A real statement of dramaturgical intent, this fundamental text whose introspective value Beckett lays out from the introduction on ("one does nothing but tell stories with words") ushers in the writer's most fruitful creative period. In essence, like Apollinaire and Cendrars, Beckett draws from the artistic problems of his contemporaries the catalyst of his own future writing through "the deepest questioning of narrative, figurative or poetical presuppositions" (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur).The major influence of modern painting on the narrative structure - or destructuring - of Beckett's drama and novels would be pointed out and examined by a number of thinkers, among them Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Maurice Blanchot. It was, in fact, with the art of the Van Veldes (first Geer then Bram) that Beckett began to formalize this desire to translate the pictorial question into dramaturgical terms. Thus it was that he rejected Nicolas de Staël's set design for Godot, since: "the set must come out of the text without adding anything to it. As for the visual comfort of the audience, you can imagine how much I care. Do you really think you can listen with the backdrop of Bram's set, or see anything other than him?" (Letter to Georges Duthuit, 1952).When he met Geer in 1937, "Beckett was going through a major existential crisis and had just been reworking his first novel, Murphy, which had been rejected by a great many publishers. He was lost in alcohol, leaving Ireland and moving once and for all to Paris" (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). He returned from a long artistic journey in Germany, where he was marked by classical works as well as contemporary art - it was during this journey that he discovered Caspar David Friedrich's Two Men Contemplating the Moon, his source for Waiting for Godot.Art was thus at the heart of his creative thinking and the friendship that would tie him to Geer and later his brother Bram and their sister Jacoba (with whom his relationship may have been more than merely friendly), and which would profoundly influence his life and writing. His first writing on art is a short piece on Geer Van Velde, whose works he pressed on his new lover Peggy Guggenheim when she set up her new London gallery. Despite the relative failure of the exhibition (which followed Kandinsky's), he got his friend a one-year scholarship from Peggy. James Knowlson even thinks that "if Beckett maintained close links with Peggy for a long time, it was first and foremost because she could be convinced to give his artist friends a serious helping hand, starting with Geer Van Velde" (in Beckett, p. 474). Enigmatic, the little piece that Beckett wrote at the time at Peggy's request already contained a dramaturgical kernel of thought: " Believes painting should mind its own business, i.e. colors. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely."   Slower to develop, his friendship with Bram and interest in the latter's painting slowly changed Beckett's outlook on Geer's art and when, ten years after his first meeting the brothers, he wrote The World and the Trousers,  Beckett brought up to date a duality symbolized by the title, taken from an anecdote given as a legend to the article. The world is the "imperfect" work of God, made in six days, to which the tailor compares the perfection of his trousers, made over six months.The link between this anecdote and the Van Velde brothers is perhaps to be found in the second essay Beckett devoted to them, in 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement [Painters of the Problem] (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : "One of them said: I cannot see the object in order to represent it because I am who I am. There are always two sorts of problems - the object-problem and the 'eye-problemGeer Van Velde is an artist of the former sortBram Van Velde of the latter."Resistance of the object or impotence of the artist, this tale, the "true primary narrative core in kôan zen form," (P. Vilar) would later find itself scattered throughout Beckett's work and would more specifically take centre stage in Endgame, whose similarity, by the by, with the art of Geer Van Velde was noted by Roger Blin. "At the time, he was friends with the Dutch brothers Geer and Bram Van Velde, both painters. Geer was a painter in the style of Mondrian. I have the feeling that Beckett saw Endgame as a painting by Mondrian with very tidy partitions, geometric separations and musical geometry," (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    Beckett's growing affinity for Bram Van Velde's work and the energy he put into promoting his work, especially to the galerie Maeght or his friend the art historian Georges Duthuit, was no doubt to the detriment of his relationship with Geer. Nonetheless, despite some misunderstandings, their friendship remained unbroken; as did the silent but anxious dialogue that the writer maintained with the art of the younger Van Velde brother, two of whose large canvases he owned. "The big painting by Geer finally gave me a sign. Shame that it should have turned out so badly. But perhaps that's not true after all" (letter to Georges Duthuit, March 1950). "Geer shows great courage. Ideas that are a little cutting, but maybe only in appearance. I have always had a great respect for them. But not enough, I think" (letter to Mania Péron, August 1951)The death of Geer Van Velde in 1977 affected Beckett deeply and coincided with a period of intense nostalgia during which the writer decided to give himself over to "a great clear-out" of his house so as to live between "walls as grey as their owner." Confiding his state of mind to his friend, the stage designer Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett bore witness to the indefatigable affection he had nurtured for the painter over forty years: "more canvases on display, including the big Geer Van Velde behind the piano."A precious witness to the friendship of these fellow travelers who had, ever since checking the veracity of the game of chess played by Murphy and Mr. Endon for Beckett's first novel, tackled together the great challenges of modernity: "It's that, deep down, they don't care about painting. What they're interested in is the human condition. We'll come back to that" (Beckett on the Van Velder brothers in The World and the Trousers). Les éditions de minuit Paris 1967 9,5x18cm broché

        WOMEN . . . OUR WOUNDED NEED YOUR CARE! [. . . ] Join a Hospital Company

      Recruiting Publicity Bureau United States Army 1945 - Broadside. Linen-backed. Large illustration of a woman in a blue WAC uniform carrying a surgical tray. Poster: 37-3/4" x 25-1/4". Backing: 39-1/2" x 27-1/4" Although the U.S. Army Medical Department was one of the slowest to integrate women, when over 5,000 of its combat-ready men -- including many trained technicians and orderlies -- were forced to transfer to the Infantry in early 1944, the department began a major push to recruit women to fill the positions. The Female Medical Technician campaign, as pictured here, was hugely successful, despite the high qualifications demanded of applicants, many of whom were required to have advanced degrees and at least two years of experience in their fields. WACs also served as laboratory technicians, psychiatric social workers, medical stenographers, and in a variety of other technical and/or skilled medical positions; by the end of the war, the Medical Department employed approximately 20,000 WACs, nearly a fifth of the Corps. [Treadwell, United States Armies in WWII. Special Studies: The Women's Army Corps]The poster reads, in full: "Women . . . our wounded need your care! | You can help to give it . . . The U.S. Army Medical Department is calling for help -- the help of WOMEN -- needed in Army hospitals to serve as medical technicians, surgical technicians, and in other important assignments. Assignments also available at Army Air Forces, Ground Forces, and Service Force Installations. | Join a hospital company. | For information apply at any U.S. Army Recruiting Station or ask your local Postmaster."Uncommon, particularly in this fine of condition.

      London: Secker & Warburg, 1945. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. First printing, but dust wrapper states 'Second Edition' on the front flap. Book is about very good, some fading to the white lettering on the spine and discoloration and darkening to top and bottom centimeters of both boards, stamp on title page from the Bundesmädche nmittelschulen in Linz at Körnerstrasse (körnerstraße) 9, with an inked '133' below the stamp. Dust jacket shows short tear to top edge of front panel, minor loss to spine ends and light scratching and rubbing to spine, mostly along rear joint, slight darkening to rear panel. Handsome copy. The most relevant book, even more so than 1984, of Orwell's prescient novels to describe the current Trump administration. Linz, where this copy came from, was where Adolf Hitler spent his youth and the place he referred to as his home town. Dubious honor, but interesting that this book, a satire of dictatorship, should come from there.

        WROC?AW, POLAND. WRATISLAVIA.

      - This fine view is one of the rarest early printed views of Wroc?aw, capturing the entire city from a panoptic perspective, looking towards the southwest. The large walled city is shown to occupy islands within of the Oder River. Keys, located in the lower corners of the map identify 91 key buildings and sites of interest. Highlights include the Great Market Square (13, ‘Rynek we Wroc?awiu’), St. Elizabeth’s Church (10), the Town Hall (14), the Guildhall and the New Market (54). Cathedral Island (80), indicates the location where the Bishopric of Wroc?aw was established in 1000 A.D. The fortified castle (30) was built in the late 12th century as a bulwark against invasion. Wroc?aw developed three power centres: the political center under he immediate protection of the Castle, the mercantile center around the Market Square, and the Ecclesiastical center on Sand and Cathedral Islands. Wroc?aw became prosperous due to its strategic location in the Silesian Lowlands, along Oder River, at intersection of two trade routes, the Via Regia (which ran across Europe from Santiago de Compostela, Spain to Moscow) and the Amber Road (which ran from the Baltic Sea to Venice). However, Wroc?aw’s location also ensured that it was coveted by competing regional powers. Over the last 500 years the city has variously been part of the Kingdom of Poland, Bohemia, Hungary, the Austrian Empire, Prussia, and Germany, before being returned to Poland in 1945. At the time that the present view was printed, Wroc?aw was, since 1526, under the rule of the Austrian Habsburgs. Writing in 1588, the chronicler George Braun noted the followed about Wroc?aw: "The city government, which is constituted of the best and wisest of councillors, is held there in high esteem and great honour. The populace also obeys the Council with the greatest deference and the humblest submissiveness. The city ordinances there do not favour any one party over another but rather strive for propriety, the observance of justice and the equality of all citizens. [.] In addition, there are also designated magistrates, who with their clerks, impart advice to everyone in the country who seeks their counsel. In addition, there are many arts and crafts in this city that are both good and useful for everyday life. Moreover, it should not be forgotten that good, flavoursome beer is brewed there."?? The present view is one of the rarest and most prized early views of Warsaw. It was issued in a rare work Tooneel der vermaarste koop-steden by Johannes Janssonius van Waesberghe an was based on a view from Jan Jansson’s monumental 8-volume book of European urban views, Illustriorvm principumque urbium septentrionalium Europae tabulae (in volume 1, as plate 40), which is generally referred to as the Theatrum urbium (Amsterdam, 1657). Jansson’s endeavor was by far the most lavish and comprehensive early series of city views ever published, and the high cost of the production ensured that only a very limited number of sets were ever issued. Jansson’s view of Wroc?aw is derived from Georg Braun’s view that first appeared in the fourth and six volumes of Braun & Frans Hogenberg’s Civitates Orbis Terrarum (Cologne, 1588). In 1653, Jansson purchased the nearly 500 surviving plates from the Civitates Orbis Terrarum from Frans’ heir, Abraham Hogenberg, of which the present view was one of the 232 Braun & Hogenberg views that Jansson adapted for his own endeavor. The only way to tell the editions apart is that on the verso, the Braun & Hogenberg edition employs one column of text per page, while the Jansson edition prints the text in two columns. Johannes van Waesberghe (1616/7 – 1681) was born in a famous family of Dutch publishers. He married Jan Jansson’s daughter Elisabeth Janssonius (1615-1681) and established himself in Amsterdam under the name Johannes Janssonius van Waesberghe. He took over Jansson’s publishing house and printing plates, including the Braun and Hogenberg’s revised plates from Jansson’s T

        Applied Mathematical Research in Germany, with particular Reference to Naval Applications. Report No. 79. British Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee.

      London: H.M. Stationer's Office, (1945) - Folio (195 x 255 mm), [iv], 65 pp., stapled roneoed typescript in printed wrappers as issued (2 early leaves bound out of sequence but complete), marked "Copy No. 438" and stamped "Restricted" in red, later stamped "Unclassified" in blue (with, however, one paragraph on p. 2 blacked out), covers discoloured towards edges, considerable fraying around spine, internally very good. First edition, the report of an investigation carried out in Germany during June-July 1945, which included visits to A. Walther at the IPM, Darmstadt, and to the University of Göttingen. Page 63 gives a brief account of "Ing. Zuse's calculating machines", written before direct contact had been established with him. As the war in Europe was drawing to a close, the Allies planned to find out as much information as possible about the work of German scientists and mathematicians, particularly those engaged in rocketry and atomic weapons. This report documents an intelligence mission to Germany by a six-man team of mathematicians in June, July and August 1945. Eight 'targets' were selected for investigation, each of which is the subject of a section in the report (see Table of Contents). Notable among them was the 'Peenemünde Group' working on the trajectories of V2 rockets at Niederhausen near Darmstadt (Section 1, Group 1), and the Mathematisches Reichsinstitut at Oberwolfach, founded in 1944 by Wilhelm Süss, then Rektor of Freiburg University. Pages 63-4 give a brief account of Konrad Zuse's electro-mechanical binary computer (the Z4), evacuated to Göttingen in February 1945. The team was led by the British mathematician John Todd (1911-2007), who would go on to end his distinguished career at Caltech, after doing pioneering work in numerical analysis and playing a key role in the development of some of the first large computers. In 1943 he had founded the Admiralty Computing Service, from which he recruited this team. Fred Hoyle was added for his expertise with radar. 'There is no possibility of "controlling" mathematical research, i.e. preventing work being carried out on "war" subjects. It is abundantly clear from our observations in Germany and from information obtained from U.S.A. (and, to a much less extent, from our experience in U.K.) that almost any top-class mathematician practising in the most abstract fields can very quickly make substantial contributions in the mathematics of technology' (pp. 2-3). Elsewhere Todd recounted how on this mission he earned the title 'The Saviour of Oberwolfach', by preventing Moroccan soldiers from burning the entire mathematical library of Freiburg which Süss had evacuated to the Black Forest for safe-keeping (interview with Don Albers, 'John Todd—Numerical Mathematics Pioneer', The College Mathematics Journal, Volume 38, Number 1, January 2007 , pp. 2-23) [Attributes: First Edition]
