        Vår ofödde son. Skådespel i fyra akter.

      Stockholm; Bonniers, 1945. Originalupplaga. 19x13 cm. 177, (1) s. Rött halvfranskt band med fem upphöjda bind, titeletikett i mörkgrönt skinn, marmorerade pärmpapper och försättsblad, övre guldsnitt. Främre omslaget medbundet. Med elegant utformad ficka på bakre innerpärm för tidningsurklipp. Nordiska Bokhandelns etikett på främre innerpärm. Ryggen lätt nött och med en kort spricka i övre framfals. Med svag fläck på främre snittet som uppstått vid förgyllningen av övre snittet. Fin inlaga. Dedikation: ''Till Kristina / med tacksamhet och all min tillgivenhet från Författaren / d. 28/6 1945''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''

        Le mythe de Giraudoux Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      s.l.|(Paris): S.n. (Paysage dimanche), 1945. Fine. S.n. (Paysage dimanche), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1945), 11,5x22cm & 2 pages in-4, 3 pages in-4. - Autograph manuscript of the author of 3 pages 4to published in Issue 17 of 7 October 1945 the newspaper The Sunday Landscape. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. 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. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 3 pages in-4 publiée dans le numéro 17 du 7 Octobre 1945 du journal Le Paysage Dimanche. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique publiée à l'occasion des nombreuses études sur l'oeuvre de giraudoux parues depuis sa mort en janvier 1944. On joint le tapuscrit complet. Si les nombreuses références à son oeuvre dans les articles du Journal des Débats révèlent l'ascendant de Giraudoux sur Blanchot, celui-ci manifeste pourtant le désir manifeste de s'affranchir de cette paternité. Ainsi supprime-til dans Faux-Pas de nombreuses références à l'oeuvre de Giraudoux (cf C. Bident, M. B. De la chronique à la théorisation). Cet article paru en 1945 est un témoignage unique l'ambivalence des sentiments envers un maitre admiré mais qui ne peut plus servir de modèle à son disciple transformé par l'écriture et la guerre. "Certes, un auteur, comme celui de Judith ne peut pas être un auteur de tout repos mais ce qu'il a créé est beau et ce beau n'est pas "ce qui nous désespère". Il est trop facile de voir que, quoi qu'il veuille, il ne va jamais jusqu'à compromettre en son art, l'harmonie la compréhension, la mesure. Comme une malédiction jetée sur la réalité inaccessible, il formerait un monde entièrement faux? Mais pas si faux: nous n'y perdons pas pied, nous ne cessons de nous y reconnaitre et au contraire, pour certains comme Sartre, c'est celui de la banalité même des concepts de chaque jour." 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.

        In four superb content letters, Mark W. Clark praises the contributions of General Geoffrey Keyes' II Corps during the long Allied campaign in Italy: ?...your II Corps made the breakthrough south of Rome, the advance to the Arno, and the breakthrough of the Gothic Line...you again led the II Corps as one of my strongest units in...forcing the surrender of all the German forces in Italy. Yours has been a wonderful record of history-making achievement."

      Austria, 1945 - 1946. 8" x 10.5". "Four Typed Letters Signed ?Mark W. Clark? and ?Mark?, 1p each, 8? x 10.5?, all accomplished on ""Headquarters United States Forces in Austria"" letterhead, August 30, 1945 to January 2, 1946. File holes at top, light creases and penciled notations, else fine condition.Still basking in the Allied victory over Axis forces in Europe, the correspondence opens with Clark informing Keyes that he is ""leaving the II Corps to take over the command of the Seventh Army."" Clark adds, ""This is a well-deserved advancement and I rejoice in the wisdom and understanding which General Eisenhower has shown in selecting you to command an Army. But it is not easy to part from you."" Clark then extolls Keyes' service in Italy from September 1943, recalling, ""While in the Fifth Army, your II Corps made the breakthrough south of Rome, the advance to the Arno, and the breakthrough of the Gothic Line. Then when I took over command of the 15th Army Group, you again led the II Corps as one of my strongest units in the breakthrough into the Po Valley and in forcing the surrender of all the German forces in Italy. Yours has been a wonderful record of history-making achievement ... I shall miss a loyal friend. You have been a source of reliance and strength in our trials and difficulties in Italy, and a source of inspiration during our glorious triumphs there."" Interestingly, it had been the Seventh Army that had made contact with Mark Clark's Fifth Army near the Brenner Pass in the Alps in May 1945. The generals remained in touch following Keyes' reassignment to command the Seventh Army, warmly reliving their glorious achievements in battle. On September 11, 1945, Clark wrote to thank Keyes for his message sent ""... on the anniversary of the American landings at Salerno. My gratitude and admiration go out to the men of II Corps ... who fought under you ... They proved themselves gallant and tenacious fighters in the face of almost insuperable obstacles. On that September 9th we held high faith that we would accomplish our task, although none of us then could tell when victory would be ours. Last Sunday many of the men who were with you and me in Italy joined in marking the third anniversary of Salerno. We stood in Salzburg in a world at peace; American arms had been everywhere triumphant. We face now the challenge of making the peace firm and lasting. I am sure we can meet that challenge as we overcame the obstacles at Salerno and the hardships of the Italian campaign..."" The following day, September 12th, Clark forwarded a published compilation of the records of the Italian Campaign to Keyes: ""When our American Fifth and British Eighth Armies crossed the Po to force the German foe into unconditional surrender in May 1945, we could look back on the lessons and experience of two years of campaigning in the difficult, mountainous terrain of Italy. Italian topography, house and village construction, climate and communication routes had favored the defense heavily, and necessitated our continual improvisations in offensive technique to secure our advance to final victory. Realizing the value of the knowledge we were obtaining, records were kept by both armies during the entire Italian campaign ... We now have published a compilation of these records, entitled 'A Military Encyclopedia, Based on operations in the Italian campaigns, 1943-1945,' a copy of which I am sending to you ... "". Keyes returned the favor by forwarding his own report on the operation of his II Corps in Italy. Acknowledging receipt of the report on January 5, 1946, Clark remarked, ""It appears to be a most interesting presentation ... I am looking forward with particular pleasure to reading it in detail. I shall never forget my days with II Corps, nor the indispensable contribution which it made under your magnificent leadership during our long Italian campaigns, and to our final victory last May ...""A terrific correspondence of two former comrades-in-arms recalling their greatest military achievement.

        Le roman de Jean-Paul Sartre Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

(1945), 11,5x22cm & 2 pages in-4, 3 pages 1/2 in-4. - Autograph manuscript of the author of three and a half pages 4to published in issue 19 of October 21, 1945 Landscape Sunday. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Chronic literary published on the occasion of the publication of the first two volumes of the trilogy "The Way Back" by Jean-Paul Sartre. Full typescript with autograph correction of the author are joined. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on new 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 he would later develop Many in these essays, "La Part du feu" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Scripture of the disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrated analytical acuity far beyond current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classic and modern, first-class writers and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking that 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," the 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 two acts from which culture entered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers NRF together under the direction of Christopher Bident all literary chronicles not yet published in volume with the proper analysis of the critical work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer of his own rhetoric, delivered more to the echo of the impossible or the lure of the disappearance. (...) 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 3 pages et demie in-4 publié dans le numéro 19 du 21 Octobre 1945 de Paysage dimanche.

Chronique littéraire publiée à l'occasion de la parution des deux premiers volumes de la trilogie "Les chemins de la liberté" de Jean-Paul Sartre. On joint le tapuscrit complet comportant une correction autographe de l'auteur. 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.

        Tres Ensayos Sobre el Arte de la Encuadernación .

      1945. José Porter, Editor. 1945 - Impreso en el Instituto Gráfico Oliva de Vilanova. Barcelona. Edición de bibliofilia limitada a 330 ejemplares, nº 217. 1 Vol. . XVI+96 pp.+L láminas. Cuarto Mayor. Plena Piel. Bibliografía / Bibliofilia (Bibliofilia general), Encuadernación Artística . El barcelonés Emilio Brugalla Turmo (1901-1987) es sin ningún género de dudas el encuadernador más importante de la historia reciente en España. A su trabajo como artesano, que nos dejó innumerables obras maestras arropando libros de las más diversas temáticas y características, añadió siempre un decidido interés por la divulgación de su arte. Durante toda su vida impartió numerosos cursos y conferencias, muchas de las cuales fueron editadas y son consideradas como pequeños manuales del encuadernador artístico. Esta obra contiene tres de esas conferencias, impartidas en Madrid bajo el auspicio de la Dirección General de Bellas Artes. En ellas aborda la historia de la encuadernación desde la Edad Media, la historia del arte de encuadernar en Barcelona y la técnica de encuadernación. La edición es impecable, con numerosas ilustraciones a toda página con ejemplos de encuadernaciones emblemáticas, impresas en colografía por Ricardo Fonta, dibujos de Teodoro Miciano y un frontispicio a nueve tintas grabado por Solano. El ejemplar está encuadernado en los propios talleres de Brugalla, que lo firma con fecha 1948. Sin embargo, en una de las guardas delanteras presenta una dedicatoria autógrafa de Emilio Brugalla a Jesús Mateu datada en 1946, por lo que deducimos que su primer propietario encargó la encuadernación posteriormente a su adquisición. Contenido en un estuche de cartoné forrado en papel marmorizado con los bordes de la boca en piel, el volumen está encuadernado en plena piel roja, con ambos planos y lomera cuajados de dorados amosaicados, cejas doradas con motivos geométricos y florales, guardas dobles en seda roja y papel marmorizado artesanal y los tres cortes dorados. El acabado alcanza el nivel habitual del taller barcelonés en cada mínimo detalle, haciendo que el libro tenga una presencia espectacular. Se trata por tanto de una auténtica joya de la encuadernación en España.

      New York:: Viking Press,, 1945. . A Near Fine copy with previous owner name on the front flyleaf in the yellow binding in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with light edge wear to the extremities. Cannery Row focuses on the acceptance of life as it is—both the exuberance of community and the loneliness of the individual. John Steinbeck draws on his memories of the real inhabitants of Monterey, California, and interweaves their stories in this world where only the fittest survive—creating what is at once one of his most humorous and poignant works. In Cannery Row, John Steinbeck returns to the setting of Tortilla Flat to create another evocative portrait of life as it is lived by those who unabashedly put the highest value on the intangibles—human warmth, camaraderie, and love..

        Le roman de Jean-Paul Sartre. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      Autograph manuscript of the author of three and a half pages 4to published in issue 19 of October 21, 1945 Landscape Sunday.Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions.Chronic literary published on the occasion of the publication of the first two volumes of the trilogy "The Way Back" by Jean-Paul Sartre.Full typescript with autograph correction of the author are joined.Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on new 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 he would later develop Many in these essays, "La Part du feu" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Scripture of the disaster."From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrated analytical acuity far beyond current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classic and modern, first-class writers and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking that 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," the 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 two acts from which culture entered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943).In 2007, Cahiers NRF together under the direction of Christopher Bident all literary chronicles not yet published in volume with the proper analysis of the critical work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer of his own rhetoric, delivered more to the echo of the impossible or the lure of the disappearance. (...) 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. (Paysage dimanche) s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1945) 11,5x22cm & 2 pages in-4 3 pages 1/2 in-4
