        Lettres de guerre de Jacques Vaché, suivies d'une nouvelle, précédées de quatre préfaces d'André Breton

      Paris, K éditeur, 30 avril 1949, in-12, non paginé, environ 70 pp, broché, couverture rempliée imprimée, Édition en partie originale, exemplaire non justifié. Complet du bandeau "préfaces d'André Breton". Recueil de lettres de Jacques Vaché envoyées à André Breton, Théodore Fraenkel, Louis Aragon et Harry James alors qu'il était au front, ou en prison. Ces lettres sont précédées de quatre préfaces d'André Breton, grand ami de Vaché, qui eut une profonde influence sur lui et sur le mouvement surréaliste. Breton écrira à propos de ces lettres de guerre qu'elles sont "une magnifique introduction à tout ce qui recouvre l'étiquette Dada. Il y a là tous les manifestes qu'on voudra, pas une négation ne manque" dans une lettre à Jacques Doucet datant du 4 janvier 1921. En fin d'ouvrage, l'article L'Opium, extrait de L'Express de l'Ouest du 9 janvier 1919, reproduit en fac-similé, dans lequel est annoncée la mort de Jacques Vaché et de l'un de ses amis, à la suite de l'absorption d'une trop forte dose d'opium et dans lequel les deux victimes sont présentées à la fois comme de "jeunes écervelés" sans expérience de la drogue ainsi que comme "de braves soldats qui avaient fait leur devoir devant l'ennemi et avaient été blessés". L'ouvrage contient aussi un fac-similé d'une lettre d'Harry James. Bel exemplaire.

        Autograph Letter Signed to James Laughlin

      - Octavo. Dated in 1949 from Trieste to publisher James Laughlin of New Directions in Norfolk, Connecticut, enclosing a provisional plan (not present) for a biography of his brother, James Joyce. Accompanied by a carbon of a letter from Laughlin to Joyce, expressing his enthusiasm for the project. Joyce writes: "I enclose a provisional plan. As a matter of fact I don't see very far ahead but as I write things come back to me. The style, I'm afraid, will always be reminiscent like the pages I sent (except when I quote conversations from my diary), and digressive when I think I have some interpretation to offer. The pages I have sent you are approximately half of the first chapter. The others will be much longer, except, perhaps, the last." New Directions did not publish the book, but Viking Press eventually did. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Les jeux de la poupée. Illustrés de textes par Paul Éluard. Paris. Les Éditions Premières 1949. 252 x 194 mm. 86 Seiten mit 15 ganzseitigen, kolorierten Originalphotographien von Hans Bellmer und einer Originalphotovignette auf dem Titelblatt. Illustrierte Originalbroschur mit einer aufgeklebten, kolorierten Originalphotovignette von Bellmer auf dem Umschlag (die gleiche wie auf dem Titelblatt) und mit pinkfarbener Originalbauchbinde.

      Les Éditions Premières. Originalausgabe. Das Buch erschien Ende 1949 als zweite Veröffentlichnung der „Collection GMBZ" unter der Leitung von Heinz Berggruen. In der gleichen Reihe erschien zuvor das Buch von Benjamin Péret „La Brebis galante" mit Illustrationen von Max Ernst. Eins von insgesamt 136 auf Vélin Crévecoeur du Marais gedrucken Exemplaren. Der Druckvermerk wurde von Hans Bellmer mit Bleistift signiert. Nach „Die Puppe" von 1934 Bellmers zweites Hauptwerk. Das Buch ist mit 15 von Hans Bellmer mit Anilinfarben handkolorierten, ganzseitigen Originalphotographien ausgestattet, die von 14 poetischen Texten von Paul Eluard begleitet werden. Auf die jeweils gegenüberliegende Seite der einseitig gedruckten Texte wurden die Originalphotographien Bellmers montiert. Den Photographien Bellmers und dem Text Eluards wurde ein sechzehnseitiger, „die Spiele der Puppe" erläuternder Text von Hans Bellmer vorangestellt, den dieser in Zusammenarbeit mit Georges Hugnet ins Französische übersetzte. Die Photographien entstanden bereits in den Jahren 1936 und 1937, sowohl Bellmers Vorwort als auch die Texte von Paul Eluard wurden 1938 geschrieben. Im Vergleich zu Bellmers „Die Puppe" sind hier die Photographien großformatiger (ca. 14 x 14 cm) und vom Künstler mit der Hand koloriert worden, statt 10 enthält „Les jeux de la poupée" 15 Originalphotographien. Mit der Originalbauchbinde und in gutem Zustand von großer Seltenheit. Ein Meisterwerk der Photographie und des Surrealismus: „Es ist das faszinierendste Buch Bellmers und zugleich jenes, das den Intensionen des Surrealismus vollständig entspricht. Trieb und Traum sind Ausgangsbasen dieser erotischen Gliederkombinatorik" (Lang, Seite 66). Referenz: Parr/Battger, the photobook, vol. I, Seite 106 und 107 - Lang, Surrealismus und Buchkunst 5, mit Abbildungen auf den Seiten 64 und 65 - Pierre Dourthe, Bellmer, le principe de perversion, Seite 61-77 mit mehreren Abbildungen
