        Pièces manuscrites de jeunesse (inédites)

      1945 - Emballés dans un papier imprimé de Noël du Bon marché, des notes scolaires manuscrites, 4 manuscrits et 1 tapuscrit corrigé de pièces de théâtre rédigées par Jean Théodoridès. Théodoridès (1926-1999) est un historien des sciences biologiques et médicales, parasitologiste éminent entré au CNRS en 1949 où il effectue la majeure partie de sa carrière au laboratoire d&#146;évolution des êtres animés. Il devient le spécialiste mondial des protozoaires parasites. En 1950, il soutient une thèse de Doctorat ès-Sciences sur les parasites et phorétiques de coléoptères. Egalement docteur en lettres, il participe à de nombreuses sociétés savantes et littéraires (c&#146;est un stendhalien acharné). Cet ensemble témoigne de son goût précoce pour les lettres (textes datés de 1945), d&#146;une envie d&#146;écriture (qu&#146;il concrétisa seulement à travers plus d&#146;une centaine de publications sur la protozoologie, des articles savants, des compte-rendu d&#146;ouvrages) et d&#146;une fantaisie certaine. L&#146;ensemble se compose de : 1) COUPS DE BAMBOU, pièce en 2 actes et un prologue, 54 ff. d&#146;un cahier à petits carreaux, 15,5 x 21,5 cm, rédigés à l&#146;encre bleue + en tête-bêche, à la suite de notes de géographie, LA FAMILLE DISPERSEE, pièce en 1 acte, 22 feuillets rédigés au crayon et à l&#146;encre bleue. « Coups de bambou » débute dans le décor pittoresque d&#146;un laboratoire « genre Faust, cornues, toiles d&#146;araignées » et se poursuit à l&#146;acte II au c&#156;ur de la jungle, dans la chambre à coucher d&#146;une station de dépistage de la maladie du sommeil. --- 2) ON A VOLE LE GRASSITERMES, 17 ff. 20 x 29 cm, rédigés en noir et bleu : le personnage principal porte le nom du zoologiste Pierre-Paul Grassé (en seigneur de Montbard) ; le grassitermes est un termite qui a muté. --- 3) QUAND LE MYSTIQUE DANSE comédie en 3 actes en prose (1945 selon une note glissée dans le cahier, la pièce se déroule en 1944), 124 ff. d&#146;un cahier d&#146;école, 15,5 x 21,5 cm, rédigés à l&#146;encre bleue. --- 4) ON A PERDU RAOUL, « drame embryologique en 3 actes et 6 tableaux, par moi-même, Raoul MAY, néophyte pédagogique pour embryologistes » : tapuscrit daté du 6 octobre 1945 et dédié « à mes vieux copains de Fac », 17 ff. reliés à un trombone, 22 x 28 cm, avec quelques corrections manuscrites. Le personnage de Raoul May intervenait déjà, comme « détective américain » dans « On a volé le grassitermes » ; fantaisie échevelée se déroulant dans la pampa de Patagonie, un laboratoire de la Sorbonne, une boîte de nuit à New-York, le pont du « Nauplius », le pont du Normandie et une cabine télégraphique. L&#146;argument : Raoul May et son comparse Pacaud sont partis dans la pampa à la recherche de tardigrades et de rares cladocères. A l&#146;annonce de leur disparition, le professeur Teissier part à leur recherche. Parmi les personnages, dans leurs disciplines, on note de véritables savants comme Georges Teissier, zoologiste et généticien, « Gaston Mangenot, botaniste » (qui est Georges Mangenot), le botaniste Louis Blaringhem, la biologiste Germaine Hurel-Py. Raoul May, embryologiste chantant (Théodoridès avait une voix de basse qu&#146;il déploya dans les c&#156;urs liturgiques orthodoxes), est certainement une projection du jeune Théodoridès qui fait preuve d&#146;une amusante autodérision. Ainsi, à la vue d&#146;une nuée obscure dans le ciel, il s&#146;écrit : « Qu&#146;est-ce que c&#146;est ? Des Tardigrades aériens ? » ; à propos du canasson sur lequel il traverse la pampa : « Notre monture est fatiguée et commence à souffrir au niveau de l&#146;hypoglosse. » Teissier, dans son labo de la Sorbonne, subit les assauts de sa maîtresse qui s&#146;exclame « Oh Georges ! Tu es mon grand Isopode échevelé ! » Mangenot fait une apparition hallucinée : « Je cherche à réaliser discrètement la photosynthèse des plantes à l&#146;obscurité. Alors je me promène dans les couloirs de la Sorbonne avec, à la main, le genre Papaver, famille des Papavéracées, graine succulente à albumen quadriruminé et huileux » --- 5) une dizaine de ff. de poésies, parmi des formules chimiques.

        Fern Hill. Original paintings by Barry McCallion

      East Hampton, NY. 2013. Unique artist&#39;s book, on Arches watercolor paper, signed and dated in black ink by the artist, Barry McCallion, on the last page. Page size: 6- 3/8 x 4-7/8 inches; 64pp. Bound: fascicles loose in green board wrappers with gold gilt spine, title printed in brown on yellow label on spine accomplished by the artist, custom-made green silk cloth over boards clamshell box lined with darker green silk, copy of titlepage painting by Barry McCallion on front cover of box, title printed in brown on yellow label and inset on spine, label signed by the artist, box by Joelle Webber, at the Mermaid Bindery.& Dylan Thomas&#39; poem was first published in 1945 in Horizon Magazine and later in Thomas&#39; book, DEATHS AND ENTRANCES. The verse starts as a paean to his youth, in particular the summer holidays spent at his aunt&#39;s farm in Carmarthenshire. The opening verse, "Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs..." is printed on yellow paper collaged onto an original painting by Barry McCallion, mostly abstract, in India ink, acrylic and metal inks, a green and yellow ground with a silver gilt branch of an apple tree with red "apples" on the branches as well as falling from them. Each page spread is similarly designed with an element of the verse placed in the abstract painting onto which the verse is collaged. The silver gilt tree branch moves to the bottom of the second page and continues as if a river on each page, weaving through the book. The red of the apples is expanded becoming another "ribbon" or river weaving through the book. Of course, both the red and silver gilt "ribbons" weave together on the last page, with the text, "Time held me green and dying though I sang in my chains like the sea."& The verse exploration of idyllic youth in an Eden-like setting is capped by a change in tone, becoming a lament for aging and the passage of time. Barry McCallion&#39;s art captures this "past haunting the present" with the entwining of an amorphous figure with the silver gilt and red ribbons from the opening page spread. A contemporary illuminated manuscript perfectly suiting the well-known, well-loved verse of Dylan Thomas. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10807.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        What Hope for Green Street? (SIGNED)

      Jarrolds [1945]. - First edition of Hawk's debut novel, written during her internment at Holloway Prison. This copy signed by the author on the title page and dated the year after publication. 8vo. 128pp. Black cloth lettered in gold at spine. Cloth just a little marked in places, and lightly chafed at several extremities. A single short repaired tear to the margin of one leaf. A very good, bright copy, albeit printed on cheap wartime paper-stock. No dust wrapper. Hawks' novel was anonymously re-written prior to publication by Henry Williamson (in a letter dated 26th August 1945 to his long-time friend and subsequent biographer Lois Lamplugh, Williamson states "I rewrote a book for someone recently, it comes out soon with Jarrolds, called 'What Hope for Green Street?' After that, the first-author (whose work was jejune and only partly readable) must dree her own weird. I'll give no more advice.") The full extent of Williamson's rewrite is not possible to determine. The dust wrapper for Hawks' fourth novel, 'A Sparrow for a Farthing' (1950), notes that Hawks' debut "was discovered and launched by Henry Williamson" and Hawks was clearly thankful for his assistance, dedicating her second novel, 'Time is my Debtor' (1947), "Gratefully to Henry Williamson". Despite this we have found no evidence that the two knew each other or ever met, despite both being born and brought up in the same area of South East London, and both being members of the British Union of Fascists. An exceptionally scarce book (we have only ever handled a single copy previously), and even more so with the author's signature. Olive Hawks (1917-1992) was a leading female member of the British Union of Fascists. She became the party's Women's Organiser in Lewisham in 1934, appointed the prospective parliamentary candidate for Camberwell in 1937 and its national Chief Woman's Organiser by 1940. She was interned for four years as a Nazi sympathiser in 1940 and it was during this period that she wrote her first novel. It appears that she abandoned her Fascist sympathies after the war, publishing three further novels and a play before emigrating with her second husband and two sons.

        LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN (1945)

      20th Century Fox 1945 - Vintage original 14 x 36" (35 x 92 cm.) insert poster, USA. Gene Tierney, Cornel Wilde, Jeanne Crain, Vincent Price, Mary Phillips, dir: John M. Stahl; Twentieth Century Fox. The popular Ben Ames Williams novel (published in 1944 and immediately bought by Fox) was given what is now called a "film noir" presentation. It is one of the few of this genre made in brilliant Technicolor and won the Academy Award for Color Photography. A writer meets a socialite on a train and falls in love with her. She proves to be unreasonably possessive and obsessive over him, so much so that it ruins her relationship with him and with everyone in her life. Tierney was never more stunningly photographed, and her seemingly sweet (yet cold), cunning and manipulative characterization (perhaps one of the finest "femme fatale" characters of all time) of Ellen Berent Harland won her an Academy Award nomination. The title was a quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet and the film was one of Twentieth Century Fox's biggest moneymakers of the 1940s. Twice-folded, unrestored poster, scattered pinholes and minor edge wear, NEAR FINE.

        LITTLE FRIEND, LITTLE FRIEND with his most famous poem in his hand

      New York: Dial Press, 1945. First Edition. Hardcover. Slight uneven sunning to the boards from the missing sections of the dustwrapper. Near Fine in a Fair dustwrapper lacking most of the spine and with a few small tears and chips. His second book published in an edition of 2000 copies. INSCRIBED on the front free endpaper for Dorothea Garritson and SIGNED by the poet below Jarrell&#39;s handwritten poem, the last poem of the book and perhaps his best known, "The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner," with its famous last line: "When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose. In his review of this book Robert Lowell said it "contains some of the best poems on modern war, better, I think, and far more professional than those of Wilfred Owen, which, though they seem pathetically eternal to us now, are sometimes amateurish and unfinished. The determined, passive, sacrificial lives of the pilots, inwardly so harmless and outwardly so destructive, are ideal subjects for Jarrell" ("With Wild Dogmatism," NEW YORK TIMES, 7 October 1951).

Very Fine.Fantastic ALS to Asch from Scott Field where Woody was stationed on October 8, 1945 reads, "Dear Moe, Marion, Herb, Harris, Pop and Union Square in general, I know how it is to have north wind blow cold and pile snow in under your door. I never had a door that didn't leak snow. The air strip here is on the north from up where the wind is born and it hits my barracks and my bed first of all the other ones down here. Marjorie says she has dropped in on you a few times. I'm glad, she said that she got a look at the cover of American Document # One. She said that she likes it. I thought I would get a two week furlough before I get sent on to my next job for the army. Instead I'm getting out on account of so many wives and kids. Some time around December. (then I can hit you up for work. I'll be a real genuine legal World War Two veteran.)

        Commercial and Library Atlas of the World. Containing One Hundred Double Page Maps and One Hundred Inset Maps

The book has been photographically documented with all 100 maps present and photographed, also the exterior, internals and any damage mentioned has also been photographically recorded and is available at request. Starting with the exterior, the base level corners are buckled, all edges are rubbed heavily with splits to both the cloth of the open edges and the leather of the corner caps. The spine has been re-wrapped with a leather reinforcement - this has worn fairly heavily and is rippled on the front edge where is is partially unstuck. It does however remain very strong. The spine reinforcement has caused the initial pages to be slightly mis-aligned without significant effect other than making opening the volume initially uneven. As a general description of the interior, there are no structural issues, the outer gilt edging is a little tarnished and the pages are clean with a light edge tone, all indexing tabs are present and age-soiled. There is no owner&#39;s mark, but this volume is believed to have belonged to a Member of the British 8th Army during the Second World War, there are 9 maps through the volume (which will be mentioned in detail) that have had some military information added to them including dates, troop movements, battle lines and where leave was taken, through France and Italy. Should you wish to see any of the pictures or ask any further questions about this doubly collectable piece, please do not hesitate to ask. Additional detailed information - (maps not mentioned can be considered to meet the general description): Map 9 - Slight tear at the index tab. Map 10 - Slight tear at the index tab. Map 11 - Slight tear at the index tab. Map 12 - Very slight tear at the index tab. Map 13 - Very slight tear at the index tab. Map 14 - Very slight tear at the index tab.

        This Hunger (limited edition of 50)

      New York: Gemor Press, 1945 New York: Gemor Press, 1945. First Edition. Signed by Nin and by illustrator "Ian Hugo", that being also her first husband, Hugh Parker Guiller. #28 of the very short limited edition of 50 (not the simultaneous edition of 1,000 copies) with color wood block prints, uncut etruria paper, and numbering-with-signature by Nin. Octavo, 185 pp. through the last wood block print, followed by the limitation page and endpapers. Some soiling to covers (cleanable, but I won&#39;t do that), light toning to the interior, some foxing opposite the hand-executed color wood block prints. In addition to being one of fifty now-apparently quite-rare copies of the shorter limited run, this copy was signed and inscribed by Hugo on the ffep, "To Leo Katz, with the admiration and appreciation of Ian Hugo", in hand print, not script (see scans). Depending on which Leo Katz that may have been - presumably the one who wrote the foreword to Hugo&#39;s "New Eyes On The Art Of Engraving", in which case affording some association status as well. Verso of the ffep has the penned words, "Leo Katz Art Library / August 1953". Presumably also deaccessioned from the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences, those words appearing on the title page. I haven&#39;t read The Hunger, but it concerns several adventurous women; and it might - I don&#39;t know - stem from Nin&#39;s noted diary statement:"Oh, God, I know no joy as great as a moment of rushing into a new love, no ecstasy like that of a new love. I swim in the sky; I float; my body is full of flowers, flowers with fingers giving me acute, acute caresses, sparks, jewels, quivers of joy, dizziness, such dizziness. Music inside of one, drunkenness. Only closing the eyes and remembering, and the hunger, the hunger for more, more, the great hunger, the voracious hunger, and thirst." All in all, about as collectible a Nin piece as one could seek. L17

Original black cloth, titles to spines gilt. With the dust jackets. Extremities a little rubbed, a couple of minor bumps and nicks to top edges of boards, short split to head of rear joint of Volume II. An excellent, bright, set in chipped and tanned jackets, Volume I with tape repairs to the verso. First edition, first impression, of the author&#39;s influential first book. Popper&#39;s classic debut contains within its analysis the seeds of his groundbreaking, if somewhat idiosyncratic, new methodology of inductive reasoning. In The Open Society and Its Enemies he traces, analyses, and refutes theories of historicism, or the idea that history progresses inexorably according to a series of laws. Beginning with Plato, he proceeds to Hegel and Marx, ultimately arguing that historicism is founded on a misunderstanding of scientific principles and that it usually forms the philosophical foundations of totalitarian regimes. Scarce in this condition.
