        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]

      London: Secker and Warburg. 1946. First edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy. Original red cloth with gilt titles to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with the odd mark and a little fading to the spine and rear panel. The contents are complete and clean throughout. With the bookplate of Anthony Powell to the front pastedown. Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the front free endpaper ?"Tony Powell / from / George Orwell?". With the supplied rubbed and darkened dustwrapper which has several small nicks to the extremities and a short closed tear to the top of the spine. Housed in a purpose made black morocco solander box with titles in gilt to the spine. Introduced by Cyril Connelly, Powell and Orwell met at the Café Royal in 1941. It was to be the start of an important friendship that, despite their political differences, lasted the remainder of Orwell?'s life. Erridge, a principle character in Powell's magnus opus ?"A Dance to the Music of Time?" (who lives as a tramp for a time, fights in the Spanish Civil War and dies in his forties) is believed to be based on his friend Orwell. An exceptionally rare presentation copy of the author's critically acclaimed collection of essays on literature and popular culture. Orwell himself, writing before he had completed Nineteen Eighty-Four, said that he thought Critical Essays one of his three most important books, along with Animal Farm and Homage to Catalonia. The collection includes such classics as ?"Raffles and Miss Blandish?" on the crucial difference between American and English detective fiction; ?"Benefit of Clergy?" in which Orwell indicts the sadism he finds in Salvador Dalí's art, and ?"Looking Back on The Spanish War?", a powerful indictment of the failure of the English intelligentsia to think clearly about the issues in the Spanish Civil War. It also deals with Orwell?'s concern, first voiced in reviews and essays when he returned from Spain, that the very concept of historical objectivity was disappearing in the West. (The seeds of Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four can be found in Orwell?'s thoughts on the loss of truth about Spain.)

True first edition, published by the British Forces in Germany at the end of the war. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper; "To Richard O'Brien with all good wishes, B.L. Montgomery, Field-Marshal. Berlin, 6-1-46". O'Brien was a liaison officer at Monty's HQ at Lüneberg Heath, and operated as his personal assistant, " After Jodl unconditionally surrendered to Eisenhower on 7 May, Montgomery dispatched O'Brien to Flensburg on the German?-Danish border to receive the acceptance of these terms from Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, head of the Wehrmacht …" (ODNB). Educated at Oundle, and Clare College, Cambridge, in 1939 while awaiting call-up O'Brien "read T. E. Lawrence's The Seven Pillars of Wisdom as preparation for military life". He faced his first military engagement at El Alamein in 1942 as a platoon commander. Caught under heavy artillery and mortar fire while floundering in a minefield, O'Brien refused medical attention for a severe wound until the survivors of his platoon had left the minefield. For which bravery he received the MC, he was awarded a bar in 1944 for leading a night patrol at Anzio. Subsequently he came near to death after a German grenade exploded at his feet. His battalion suffered such heavy casualties in northern Italy that it was disbanded. After the war he worked in industrial relations, was the first full-time executive chairman of the Manpower Services Commission, established the Employment Institute in 1985, and was chairman of the Engineering Industry Training Board, 1982-5. Knighted for his services to industry in 1980. Montgomery's own account of the campaign that secured his reputation. Of El Alamein Churchill said; "Before Alamein we never had a victory, after Alamein we never had a defeat." Even allowing for the material advantages that Monty had over his predecessors in the theatre, the victory in the Western Desert belonged to him and was exemplary of his particular, highly methodical application of his intuitive fingerspitzgefuhl; "This campaign, demonstrating the battle-winning ingredients of morale, intimate co-operation of all arms including the air weapon, first-class logistical back-up and clear-cut orders, would be Montgomery's legacy to modern field command, ending in a brilliant infantry attack at the Wadi Akarit …" (ODNB)

        ATUAGAGDLIUTT. NALINGINARNIK TUSARUMINASASSUNIK UNIKÂT

      [Nuuk, Greenland, 1946. Some issues loose. First volume in original limp patterned cloth. Second volume in cloth-backed printed boards, spine repaired. Third volume in cloth-backed boards, spine worn. Fourth volume with lower half of spine and titlepage lacking. Of the remaining volumes, sixteen are in cloth-backed boards and sixty-five are in original wrappers, spines generally worn. Second volume with contemporary manuscript index, possibly by Møller. Overall very good. A tremendous run of this landmark Greenland newspaper, equally celebrated for its remarkable quality, range of content, and longevity. The fourth volume of the this set is enhanced by a presentation inscription from Lars Møller, the longtime editor and noted native lithographer, to Hinrich Rink, proprietor of Greenland's first regular press and founder of the paper. Further, the plates in the fourth volume have been hand-colored, presumably by Møller in Rink's honor. ATUAGAGDLIUTT..., translated literally as "distributed reading matter," stands alone when evaluating the impact of a single printed periodical on a native culture. The catholic editorial taste of Berthelsen and Møller not only brought the world's great literature to the doors of native Greenlanders, but did so in a manner that accomplished dual milestones in Greenlandic cultural history. First, by printing entirely in the native language, they transmitted the worldly canon, much of it for the first time, in a manner readily understandable by their readership. This resulted in a near instant removal of substantive cultural gaps between Greenland and Europe. Second, foreign epics and tales were often set alongside traditional native legends, equating their value with those of the outside world. In result, the success of ATUAGAGDLIUTT... was a point of national pride. Avidly consumed by its readership, its pages were shared, clipped, and culled to the point of near extinction. To date, five (at most) complete runs exist, entirely in public institutions in Denmark and Greenland. One additional set resides in private hands. Only nine institutions in the United States possess comparable runs, to varying degrees of completeness. The founders of ATUAGAGDLIUTT... include some of the most prominent men in the history of Greenlandic printing. The prime mover behind its creation, Hinrich Rink, first came to Greenland from Denmark in 1848, quickly rising to the position of royal inspector for South Greenland. In 1855 he began printing small pamphlets from a late 18th-century press left behind by Greenland's "first" printer, Jesper Brodersen, whose total known output is one small pamphlet done in 1793. In 1857 he installed a new press imported from Copenhagen, in effect becoming Greenland's first regular printer. Rink was soon joined by Rasmus Berthelsen, a native Greenlander who proved a quick study talented enough to become the paper's first editor when it was launched in 1861. Apprenticed to Berthelsen was Lars Møller, the son of a carpenter who, under the tutelage of Berthelsen and Rink, learned nearly every facet of the printing trade, including lithography. It was Møller who printed the ATUAGAGDLIUTT... from its earliest days, and he was responsible for a majority of the numerous lithographs. Accomplished as he was, the success of Møller's lithographs was due entirely to the instinctual talent of the original artist, the legendary Aron of Kangeq. While bedridden with tuberculosis, Aron received a visit from Rink, who had heard of Aron's considerable talent from other natives. According to Oldendow, "Rink...sent him paper, coloured pencils, and the necessary tools for woodcutting and with no instruction what so ever Aron produced over two hundred woodcuts and watercolors." His ability to illustrate both foreign and native legend alike secured his reputation, and his contributions were an invaluable addition to the paper. Berthelsen continued as editor for twelve years until 1874, when Møller succeeded him. The combined talents of the paper's staff notwithstanding, success, let alone survival, was far from assured. Working in the forbidding Greenland climate, Rink and his assistants were faced with numerous shortages and hurdles that make their considerable accomplishment all the more remarkable. Ink was often wanting, substituted frequently with a homemade variety made from boiling varnish and soot. Paper needed to be moistened to accept the ink, but often it would freeze before it could be put to use. Most serious of all was the large language barrier between Møller and Rink which, fortunately, was overcome thanks to Møller's diligent study and a well-timed training trip to Denmark. Despite disadvantageous circumstances, the small crew was determined, and when they found themselves without, they improvised. This steadfast dedication was due, above all, to Rink's abounding love of his adopted home and its people. From the moment of his arrival, Rink sought to learn as much as possible about native culture. He undertook countless overland and boat journeys throughout the land, staying with local families whenever possible. He began to develop an idea of what a Greenland periodical could be, and tried to convey this notion in the advertising leaflets he issued prior to publication. When publication began in January 1861, it was clear Rink had imbued the young Berthelsen with the same enthusiasm, and after Møller assumed editorship, this cultural fervor erupted. Year after year the newspaper contained "innumerable articles written both by and for Greenlanders - on hunting conditions and famous lives, on public events and memorable occasions at home and abroad, novels and stories translated into Greenlandic, legends, articles, official decrees..." (Oldendow). Equally important was how Møller stretched the language to fit his needs. When a foreign object or idea lacked a Greenlandic equivalent, Møller invented one. The cultural consequences of the publication of ATUAGAGDLIUTT... are extreme, as its longevity attests. That this venture, unique among indigenous cultures, took root in a North American language is significant and offers ample opportunity for comparison to other frontier native language presses, such as those at Park Hill and Harbor Springs. What is immediately clear is that ATUAGAGDLIUTT... brought world and native culture to life in vivid detail, free of religious constraints and with no overt didactic purpose. This circumstance alone makes ATUAGAGDLIUTT... a North American language production of the greatest interest. "The results were slow in coming, but come they did, and ATUAGAGDLIUTT's finest achievement would seem to be that quietly and gradually it caused the Greenlanders to grow as a people; it welded them together into a whole, until little by little they learned to notice things outside their immediate daily life and the narrow boundaries of their isolated land. Throughout its many years of publication it helped the Greenlanders to develop from an Esquimo community into a people" - Oldendow.

        Archive of 51 Original Pencil and Ink Portraits of Ukrainian Refugees, Mannheim (Germany) Displaced Persons Camp, ca 1946

      [Mannheim, Germany], [ca 1946]. A remarkable relic of a dark chapter in American-Soviet relations. Immediately following the end of the Second World War, many German prison camps were "repurposed" by American and Soviet occupation governments to house the millions of stalag survivors and Displaced Persons left homeless at the end of the war. In most cases, these camps were missions of mercy. But the DP camps also had a dark side: the policy of the occupation government was to repatriate all refugees without regard to their political status in their home countries; for Soviet refugees, in particular, many of whom had used the war as an opportunity to flee what they considered a repressive totalitarian regime, repatriation meant certain persecution and probable death. One of the groups most affected by this policy were the Ukrainian refugees - it has been estimated that no fewer than 3 million Ukrainians occupied DP camps in the two years following the Armistice, and that of these only about 200,000 succeeded in winning political asylum. The remainder - nearly 2.8 million ethnic Ukrainians - were repatriated to the Soviet Union, often with dire consequences. A great many refugees committed suicide rather than face repatriation. According to one scholar, the Mannheim camp, under the administration of U.S. General Joseph T. McNarney, was "...especially notorious [for] the forcible repatriation of Ukrainians [...] a number of people were killed, committed suicide or were taken to hospitals with serious injuries" as a result of their efforts to resist being returned to the Soviet Union (see Wsevolod W. Isajiw (et al, eds), The Refugee Experience: Ukrainian Displaced Persons After World War II; Alberta: 1992). It is in this context that the present archive of portraits was created, by some anonymous camp survivor, between 1945 and 1947. The drawings portray camp dwellers and officials, nearly all of Ukrainian extraction (with a few ethnic Russians and Cossacks included), some in uniform, others in everyday dress. The portraits are highly accomplished and appear to have been drawn from life; some are simple pencil sketches, while others are highly finished with ink wash and subtle shading. Of particular interest is the fact that, with only a few exceptions, the portraits include detailed captions, usually with full name and occupation, and at times with further commentary: "Orest Gladky - Russian pretending to be Ukrainian; bad person, informer;" "Tischenko - carpenter, chorister; one of the most honest people in Mannheim;" "Ivan Garashchuk - one of the worst in Mannheim," etc. An occasional further comment provides details on subjects' eventual relocation - "Later to USA;" "Later to Canada," etc. Among the subjects are at least a few prominent figures in the Ukrainian emigre community, including Anatol Kurdydyk, the well-known Ukrainian-Canadian journalist; Alois Tomaschek, camp Director, later an East German spy who was captured by the West in 1976; Nicholas Nazarenko, an ethnic Ukrainian, antisemite and one-time S.S. officer, who at the end of the war headed intelligence operations for a Cossack Government-in-Exile. Much work remains to be done in tracing the biographies of the remaining subjects, as well as the possible identity of the artist, an aspect of researching this archive that has proved frustratingly elusive (though the fact that the captions are written in Ukrainian, suggesting that the artist was a resident of the camp and not an administrator, might provide a starting point for research). In any case, this archive, in addition to its evident charm as an artifact, has the potential to provide significant biographical and cultural background for an aspect of post-war culture that has been little understood and only scantily documented. Fifty-one pencil portraits, most with ink highlights, each on a separate small sheet of artist's board ca 15cm x 11cm (6" x 4"). Most captioned in pencil (in Ukrainian) either below image or on verso (translations have been supplied by us, where legible). Occasional light soil, staining, or wear; some captions smudged and illegible, but overall in an excellent state of preservation, housed in archival card pockets in a 3-ring binder.

      Melbourne: Reed & Harris,, 1946. 10 volumes, quarto. Original paper wrappers, titles to front covers in black. Housed in a black solander box. Mildly toned; an excellent set. A complete set of ten issues. The Angry Penguins Broadsheet was an offshoot of the magazine, Angry Penguins, which was devoted to modernist writings.

The first magazine was founded in Adelaide in 1940 by Harris and his co-editor, D. B. "Sam" Kerr, and was published irregularly, with only nine issues in total. The art patrons John and Sunday Reed, together with Max Harris, published The Broadsheet, along with the later issues of the Angry Penguins magazine itself.
