        Sade ou le Royaume de l'Unique [Quelques remarques sur Sade] manuscrit aut EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      s.l.: S.n. , 1946. Fine. S.n. , s.l. S.d (1946), en feuilles. - autograph manuscript that would appear under Some comments on Sade in Review No. 3-4 August 7, 1946 - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] 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. »

      - Leclerq 1946; Medina 1210; Palau 325995-325996; Sabin 11036 (2nd work only). Two beautiful colonial imprints from Lima, Peru, bound together in one volume, containing interesting accounts of two synods held in Santiago, the capital of Chile, in 1688 and 1763. The Synod of 1688 was organized by the Bishop of Santiago, Don Bernardo Carrasco y Saavedra, and that of 1763 by Bishop Dr Don Manuel de Alday y Aspee. The description of the Synod of 1688 was first printed in Lima in 1690. That of 1763 is printed here for the first time and the two works were apparently designed for publication together, though they name different printing offices (they are often found bound together).The accounts give detailed information on both ecclesiastical matters and daily life in colonial Chile, including the text of the constitution outlining the rules of the Catholic Church. The accounts also describe a variety of cultural events such as dances, bullfights and games.With a manuscript note by the notary Nicolas Herrera on the first half-title. With the first leaf of the first work nearly detached from the book block and attached to the pastedown, but otherwise in very good condition, with only some marginal water stains on the first few leaves and four leaves somewhat browned. The parchment cover appears to have been taken from an older book. The parchment is wrinkled and shows various holes and folds from its use for the older binding. Accounts of synods, containing information on the church and daily life in colonial Chile in the 17th and 18th century.

        Skull-Face and Others

      Arkham House. Sauk City, USA, Arkham House, 1946. First edition. and first impression. Very good condition. The jacket has a production fault wherein two areas of text have not been printed (a dozen words or so), the publisher has tippexed the flaw and hand-written the words (it might be a stretch to think that perhaps Wandrei or Derleth filled in the blanks, particularly as Stan Vinson, the noted collector, was a previous owner and likely had enough copies to know which words were missing). The jacket has some edge wear, a couple of short tears and some toning to the spine. Jacket protector has also been taped down in a couple of places (probably separable). Stan Vinson's book plate to front-endpaper. . Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition.

        Documents d'Ethnographie Navale

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars,, 1946-8. Five quarto fascicules. Sewn in the original printed light card wraps. In all 6 folding plates and one folding map, 12 plates from photographs, numerous illustrations to the text, some full-page a few with spot colour. many illustrations (some in colour); Wraps a little sunned in places, minor marginal soiling and some foxing to fascicule 3, contents lightly browned, but overall very good. First editions, all published. Uncommon. An excellent set of these important works of naval ethnography, forming a series on boat construction around the world. The series was planned as a supplement to Admiral François-Edmond Paris' famous Souvenirs de Marine Conservés … , first published in 1877, the Fascicule Introductif including an index to Paris' work, and reprinting his five plates of the Bateaux de Cochinchine. Each fascicule offers a detailed account of the boat-building techniques of a particular region, comprising; Les Jonques des Chinois du Siam; Pirogues et Ca-vom de l'Ouest Cochinchinois; Les Barques de Mer de Rachgia; La Machoua de Versova; and Les Barques du Moyen Niger. It was an ambitious project, planned under the direction of the Centre de Recherche Culturelle de la Route des Indes in Djibouti, the series was also projected encompass sections on "ethnographie terrestre" and "archéologie terrestre". However when the Parisian publisher Gauthier-Villars folded, the project collapsed. These five thematic fascicules, together with the sixth introductory part - "exposant les idées générales" of the collection - appear to have been all that were published.
