        L'Adieu aux armes [Farewell to Arms]

      1948 - HEMINGWAY, Ernest. L'Adieu aux armes [Farewell to Arms]. Paris: Gallimard, 1948. Small octavo (4-3/4 by 6-3/4 inches), original maroon paper boards, original dust jacket. $6000.Early French edition, presentation/association copy inscribed on the half title by Hemingway to Professor Fraser Drew in reference to Drew's 1955 visit with Hemingway and a day spent discussing literature, "For Frazer [sic] Drew, hoping he has a good trip home, Ernest Hemingway." From Hemingway's own library.As a young teacher Drew wrote a letter to which Hemingway responded with uncharacteristic kindness, signing a number of Drew's books. Hemingway then invited Drew to visit, and on April 8, 1955, one year after Hemingway won the Nobel Prize, they spent a long afternoon discussing literature, later recounted by Drew in his article "Unedited Notes on a Visit to Finca Vigia" (in Bruccoli, Conversations With Ernest Hemingway, 89-98). At the end of Drew's visit Hemingway said "Let's go up to the house and sign those books of yours." Hemingway inscribed all the books Drew had brought with him and presented him with many others from his own collection. Hemingway's inscription in this early French edition of A Farewell to Arms makes particular reference to Drew's imminent departure at the end of his visit with Hemingway. This work is "probably [Hemingway's] best". After it one could no more imitate that musical crystal-clear style; blown like glass from the white-heat of violence" (Connally 60). "A Farewell to Arms was the novel that placed Hemingway, early, among the American masters". the consummate masterpiece, among Hemingway's novels" (Mellow, 377-79). Preceded by the American edition, first issued in 1929, and the 1932 French edition. See Hanneman 8-A; D-70. From the library of Fraser Drew with his bookplate.A fine inscribed presentation copy with an especially memorable association. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        LES NOCES DE SABLE.

      Bel et rare ensemble constitué autour de la légende des Noces de sable écrite par Cocteau en 1948, comme un Tristan et Yseult du désert, pour servir de scénario et de commentaire au film tourné par Jacques Zwobada dans une production franco-marocaine du « Studio Maghreb ». Les acteurs en étaient Denise Cardi, Itto Bent Lahsen, Larbi Tounis et Himmoud Brahimi. Jean Cocteau, auteur du scénario, jouait également le rôle du récitant. Et il associait une fois encore son nom à celui de Georges Auric, compositeur du film. Notre ensemble comprend :1) L'affiche entoilée du film, grand format (160 X 110 cm), en excellent état. Cette spectaculaire affiche lithographiée, dessinée par J. Fourastié et G. Allard, imprimée par FOG dans les tons noir, gris et bistre, montre la jeune fille du désert dans une pose alanguie. 2) Le tapuscrit original du « Texte écrit et dit par Jean Cocteau pour le film Les Noces de Sable de André Zwobada » (8 feuillets A4 ronéotypées, agrafés)3) La « Traduction littérale [en français] du commentaire arabe des Noces de sable » (8 feuillets A4 dactylographiés, agrafés) 4) La traduction en français du « Texte arabe de la scène parlée dans les versions occidentales » (4 feuillets A4 manuscrits en caractères latins et un feuillet en caractères arabes)5) La plaquette éditée pour la présentation commerciale du film. In-4, agrafé, 8 pages sous couverture métallisée et serpente. Avec le fac-similé d'une page du texte autographe de Cocteau, le résumé de la légende, la fiche technique et deux photos hors-texte en noir.6) Le programme en italien, français et anglais de la soirée du 26 août 1948 de la Biennale de Venise au cours de laquelle le film a été présenté.7) Le numéro 4 - 1950 de la revue littéraire Osmose reproduisant le texte de Cocteau (identique au tapuscrit de 1948).Signalons, pour confirmer l'intérêt que Cocteau portait aux Noces de sable, que précédemment à la publication dans Osmose, il en fit le sujet à la radio d'une émission du « Programme national » en mai 1949.

        La Règle du jeu Biffures, Fourbis, Fibrilles et Frêle bruit

      Paris, Gallimard, 1948 (tome I), 1955 (tome II), 1966 (tome III) et 1976 (tome IV) 4 vol. de 20,3 x 14,2 cm, brochés, 278 pp., 239 pp., 292 pp. et 399 pp. Série complète en édition originale de La Règle du Jeu. Exemplaires sur papier d'édition (après seulement 18 ex. et 25 ex. sur vélin pur fil pour les tome I et II et 35 ex. sur vélin d'Arches pour les tome III et IV), les tome I et IV en SP. Tous sont enrichis d'un bel envoi autographe de l'auteur à Maurice Saillet. Il est rare de trouver la série complète, publiée sur une période de 28 ans, dédicacée au même dédicataire. Sur le tome I, la dédicace "A Justin qui si injustement s'est substitué à Maurice" fait référence au pseudonyme (i.e. Justin Saget) sous lequel Maurice Saillet signa un article concernant l'ouvrage dans "Combat". Notons également le bel et poétique envoi sur le tome IV "A Maurice Saillet, ce livre qui je l'espère, fera chez lui une cure d'air nervalien". Belle provenance. .

        Alphabet for Adults

      Beverly Hills: Copley Galleries, 1948. Ray, Man. Small quarto. (40)ff., rectos only. One of five hundred copies. An illustrated alphabet of common words, "divested of their prosaic meaning and finally projected into the domain of greater emotional exclamations." Contains an unexpected thirty-eight black & white images, as the artist did not limit himself to just one word per letter on his way from anchor to zinc. Each page has a handwritten word incorporated into a related image, some more explicitly related than others. An additional illustration can be found on the upper cover. Bound in boards with a linen spine, in the original plastic jacket. Flyleaf inscribed and dated by the artist. A fine copy.
