        Il canzoniere (1900-1945)

      Einaudi, Roma 1945 - Un volume in 8°piccolo(15,5 x 20,5); legatura editoriale in tela rigida grezza, autore e titolo in oro su tassello al dorso; sovraccoperta editoriale trasparente, con fac-simile di firma del Poeta; pp. 610, (2). Qualche difettino alla sovraccoperta (rarissima a trovarsi), timbro ex-libris al frontespizio, qualche leggera annotazione a lapis all'interno, ma è copia molto buona. Rara prima edizione del secondo Canzoniere del Saba (dopo quello di Trieste del 1921), con poesie della maturità, fortemente voluta dal poeta stesso. Dei vari editori consultati, tra i quali Preda e Carabba, solo Einaudi accettò la pubblicazione. Il risultato non fu gradito all'autore: stampato in tempi di ristrettezze economiche, il Canzoniere aveva una modesta brossura come copertina, e la carta è quella tipica del periodo postbellico, di colore grigio sporco e di cattiva qualità. Per venire incontro alle esigenze dell'autore, Einaudi fece rilegare qualche centinaio di copie (la tiratura era di 2900 esemplari) con legatura più lussuosa e più solida, in tela grezza rigida. Non potè però fare nulla per quel che riguardava la qualità modesta della carta [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Applied Mathematical Research in Germany, with particular Reference to Naval Applications

      London: H.M.S.O.,, (1945). Report No. 79. British Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee. 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)

        Spellbound (Original photograph of Ingrid Bergman from the Salvidor Dali-designed dream sequence)

      Los Angeles: Selznick International, 1945. Vintage single weight photograph of Ingrid Bergman from Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 film noir. Taken from a dream sequence design for the film by Salvador Dali, wherein Bergman turns into a statue of the Roman goddess Diana. The sequence was set up, and possibly filmed, but does not appear in the final cut of the film. Shot by still photographer Madison Lacy. Both Hitchcock and producer David O. Selznick were less than fond of Dalí's ideas, and Bergman is quoted in David Spoto's Hitchcock biography, "The Dark Side of Genius," as saying that the Dalí sequence ran for almost twenty minutes before much of it, including the Diana portion, was cut by Selznick. The cut footage no longer exists, and only a few of Lacy's production stills have survived. This particular example, one of a purported 6 known shots from the unfilmed (or unused) portion of the dream sequence, shows the actress in a quintessentially sophisticated pose. It has become quite famous over time, and has been used repeatedly in books about Ms. Bergman, most recently on the rear cover of the 2008 Taschen book on Bergman in its "Movie Icons" series. Lacy's other work includes still photography for Erich von Stroheim's "The Wedding March," as well as promotional work for the films of Busby Berkeley. 8.5 x 7 inches. In an archival mat. Very Good, with some faint creasing from use, but no pinoles, tears, or loss. Criterion Collection 136. Grant, p. 601. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, p. 311. Selby Canon, p. 123. Silver, p. 275. Spicer, p. 419.

        Le mythe de Giraudoux. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      S.n. (Paysage dimanche) 1945 - - S.n. (Paysage dimanche), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1945), 11,5x22cm & 2 pages in-4, 3 pages in-4. - 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. On joint le tapuscrit complet. 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 coeur 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 oeuvre 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

In full, ?Thank you for your letter, your news clippings of the 103d Division and the picture of your dog, Pal. Being a dog lover myself, and the proud possessor of a German Dachsund puppy, I can appreciate how lucky you are in having Pal.

We have always felt that the Cactus shoulder insignia truly symbolizes the toughness of the 103d Division, and our beaten German enemy can testify to our thorns. [Germany had surrendered just 13 days earlier on May 7th] I regret that time does not permit my sending you a complete story of the Division. However, we trained in Louisiana and Texas, arrived in France last October, drove through the Vosges Mountains is Alsace, through the Siegfried Line in Germany, and then down through Austria and ten miles into Italy where we made our historic link up with the Fifth Army. In accordance with your request, I am enclosing a Cactus patch of the 103d. My best wishes to you.? The 2.5? diameter colorful Cactus patch in present and in fine condition. The original envelope, 7.75? x 4?, is rippled and bordered in transparent plastic tape which covers part of the General?s signature ?A C McAuliffe / Maj Gen USA? in lower left."
