        Desert Yarns; Into an Alkali Valley & Desert Treasure: A Bibliography + Supplement

      The Ward Ritchie Press; Edwards & Williams; & The Progress Press. Hardcover. 3 volumes in slipcase. Desert Yarns (1946) numbered 56 out of 250, very good hardcover with no jacket. Into an Alkali Valley (1948) flat-signed by author Edwards on 1/2 title page, also with original typewritten letter tipped in, addressed 'Dear Colonel' and hand-signed 'Eddie' at the bottom, discusses the history of 40 copies of this publication originally destined to be Christmas gifts and then lost by the wayside for years. Pamphlet numbered 171 of 250. Desert Treasure (1948) is hardbound with a clear protective cover and includes the scarce supplement (1949) laid in. Quite a lovely little set of hard-to-find titles. This slipcase does not appear to have been customized for these three titles, but is how we received it from Mr. Brundt. We have a rather large collection of Western Americana that we acquired from one John Brundt of Walla Walla, Washington. Brundt crafted beautiful custom slipcases for almost his entire collection numbering nearly a thousand titles. We have more books from his library available for avid collectors! . Very Good. 1946.

        [Autograph Album]: Signatures of Joe Liggins and The Honeydrippers

      [New York]. [1946-1947]. Autograph album. Measuring 4 x 6 inches. String-tied maroon paper wrappers with "Autographs" on the front wrap. Very good with the silk tie a bit frayed, general rubbing and the corners a little chipped. An album containing the signatures of the five members of the rhythm and blues band Joe Liggins and The Honeydrippers," collected by "Helen" who saw them perform at The Harlem Renaissance Ballroom, the premiere venue for African-American performers and sports in New York. The group was organized by Joe Liggins (1915-1987), an African American pianist from Guthrie, Oklahoma, who had moved to California and played with a number of bands before starting his own, at once becoming a mainstay of the R&B circuit in Los Angeles. His group's breakaway hit was called "The Honeydripper" which topped the Billboard R&B chart (then called the "Race Chart") in 1945, remaining there for 18 weeks, tied with Louis Jordan's "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" for longest running chart topper. A number of other hits followed, including "Rag Mop" and "Pink Champagne." Each member of the band - Joe Liggns, Little Willie Jackson, James Jackson, Frank Pasley, and Preston "Peppy" Prince - signed the book "To Helen, best wishes, [signature], [instrument], Honey Drippers," save Liggins who omitted the name of his instrument and the band and Jackson who omitted the name of his instrument. There are five other signatures in the album that we have been unable to identify. .

        Photograph signed. Auden.

      1946 - JACOBI, Lotte. Photograph signed. W.H. Auden. New York, circa 1946. Vintage gelatin silver print (measuring 11 by 14 inches), photographer’s penciled signature and embossed stamp on lower right corner of print recto, penciled number and name on print verso. Handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 22 by 17 inches. $7500.Vintage gelatin silver print by Lotte Jacobi, signed by her with her embossed “New York” studio stamp in the lower right corner of print recto, her famed 1946 portrait of poet W.H. Auden, his face half in shadow, half in soft light, quietly intent on the open book in his hands.The photographs of Lotte Jacobi, one of the 20th-century’s finest portraitists, “are celebrated for their directness, their penetrating immediacy, and their ability to convey the essence of the subject before her camera.” (Sundstrom, 1). Jacobi’s photographs captured the vibrancy of Berlin’s Weimar culture before she was forced to flee Nazi Germany in the 1930s. In the 1940s her New York studio became a second home to many, like her, exiled by force or choice from their native lands. That sensitivity resonates in this famous portrait of British poet W.H. Auden, who often “depicted himself as a voyager” and in 1946, when this was taken, had just returned from “a visit to the war ruins of Europe” (Davenport-Hines, 1, 228). Jacobi’s artistry is especially powerful here in her photograph’s ability to protectively cloak the writer and his book from the world and yet, inexplicably, draw us into a “tacit rapport between viewer and image” (Sundstrom, 1). Jacobi’s vintage gelatin silver print, rarely found in this large 11 by 14-inch format, intuitively reveals that it was only “with books” that Auden’s “hands took on a deftness and lost all the ineptitude they had with plates and cups” (Davenport-Hines, 234). With Jacobi’s trademark penciled signature at the lower right corner of the print recto, immediately beneath her embossed stamp: “Lotte Jacobi, New York.” Lightly penciled notations on print verso reading “#111” and identified “W.H. Auden.” See White, Lotte Jacobi 89; Wise, 65. From the estate of Lotte Jacobi.A fine signed print. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A VOYAGE TO ARCTURUS [Second edition]

      Victor Gollancz, London 1946 - David Lindsay's classic novel was originally published in 1920 in a very small print run. This second edition is also very scarce, especially in the dustwrapper. With a five page note by E. H. Visiak, and publisher's note. ***Very good in blue cloth-covered boards with slightly dulled gilt titles to spine, edges slightly worn, lower corners slightly bumped. No inscriptions. Binding tight. ***In a very good dustwrapper, edges very slightly rubbed and creased with a few tiny nicks to head of spine and a couple of nicks to edges. Small crease to front panel. Dustwrapper slightly faded, with edges and spine slightly browned. 190 mm x 130 mm. 248 pages. ***'A Voyage to Arcturus was first published in 1920. The book was a plain flop - not even what an American publisher has called a flop d'estime; of the small edition that was printed, 596 copies were sold and 834 "remaindered. Someone or other must have picked up one of the remaindered copies in the middle thirties and talked. The book was constantly being recommended to me in the late thirties: second-hand copies were then being searched for, and to such an effect that one of my friends, who has been trying since before the war to get a copy through several booksellers who go in for this kind of thing, is still without one.' (Taken from the publisher's note). ***'This is the re-issue of a novel - regarded by some who have read it as a work of genius.' (Quote from front panel). ***This second edition, published just after the Second World War, is scarce - particularly in a complete dustwrapper. A well-preserved book and dustwrapper considering the thin paper used due to post-war economy standards. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc.*** [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sade ou le Royaume de l'Unique [Quelques remarques sur Sade]. manuscrit autographe.

      S.n. 1946 - - S.n. , s.l. S.d (1946), en feuilles. - Manuscrit autographe complet de 12 pages en 6 feuillets in-8 au titre difficilement déchiffrable, peut-être : "Sade ou les Royaumes de L'Unique" et qui paraitra sous le titre "Quelques remarques sur Sade" dans Critique n°3-4 de aout sept 1946. Manuscrit à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. « C'est la pensée de Sade qui pousse celle de Blanchot à son accomplissement, et c'est aussi celle de Blanchot qui accomplit celle de Sade ». (Georges Bataille) L'écriture et l'amitié de Bataille ne sont sans doute pas étrangères à l'importance que Blanchot accordera toute sa vie à cette figure tutélaire de sa réflexion philosophique. Ces Quelques remarques sur Sade, sont pourtant la première étude que Blanchot consacre à cet écrivain qu'il n'avait jusqu'alors presque jamais évoqué. Dans cette première analyse impartiale et parfois sévère, Blanchot souligne les faiblesses de la posture littéraire de Sade et de sa relative immoralité au sein d'une société post révolutionnaire pétrie de contradictions idéologiques. Cependant, sous l'artifice d'une expression extrême, Blanchot dévoile une philosophie bien plus déconcertante et subversive que ces « grandes extravagances ». Avec une acuité singulière, il dresse le portrait d'un esprit unique, épousant tous les grands idéaux de son temps mais en leur infligeant le filtre de sa singularité nihiliste : « La Liberté, à ses yeux, n'est que l'interdiction faite à toute personne d'être autre chose que ce qu'il veut, c'est dire rien. » Sous la plume de Blanchot, le Sadisme n'est alors plus jouissance d'une violence infligée aux autres, mais expression de « la solitude infinie de l'individu » dans un monde « où les rapports des êtres, les formes générales de la vie et jusqu'au langage, out est déjà consommé dans la destruction universelle. » ; « et désormais toutes les cruautés particulières ne sont plus destinées (.) qu'à apporter à l'Unique les agréables preuves de son existence au milieu de rien. » Si, comme Bataille le souligne, plus qu'un regard novateur, la lecture de Sade par Blanchot révèle une communauté de pensée, c'est sans doute à travers la conclusion de cette première étude majeure que Blanchot le solitaire témoigne le plus nettement de son attachement pour Sade l'Unique : « Et alors, on en vient à le penser : si les circonstances ont fait de Sade un homme à jamais réduit à la misère d'une éternelle prison, lui-même a su faire de sa prison l'image de la solitude de l'univers sur lequel règne sa seule gloire à jamais toute-puissante. Cette prison ne le gêne pas, elle est son œuvre, elle est à la mesure du monde sur lequel il a plus de droits que Dieu même, car non seulement il y règne en maître, mais il en a banni et exclu toutes les créatures. Tel est l'avantage du Destructeur sur le Créateur. Cet athée est plus Dieu que Dieu. Aussi le nomme-t-on divin. » [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] autograph manuscript that would appear under Some comments on Sade in Review No. 3-4 August 7, 1946 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
