Conditions de vente Expédition Paiement À propos de la librairie Visitez notre boutique 17330 Albert CAMUS Le Minotaure ou la halte d'Oran Alger, Charlot, 1950. 1 vol. (165 x 255 mm) de 79 pp., maroquin noir, dos lisse, titre doré en long, date en pied, tranches dorées sur témoin, couv. et dos cons., étui (Reliure signée d'Alix). Édition originale. Un des 325 exemplaires sur vélin de Lana (n° 230). Très bel exemplaire. Premier des huit essais 'solaires' qui constitueront L'Été, Le Minotaure parait en 1950, chez Charlot. Écrit en 1939, sa publication a été ajournée pour de multiples raisons. Après une préoriginale dans l'Arche, revue dirigée par Jean Amrouche, ami de l'auteur et collaborateur comme lui des Éditions Edmond Charlot, le texte est publié en volume deux ans plus tard avec d'infimes variantes. Cette année marque la fin de la célèbre enseigne algéroise : Edmond Charlot, découvreur de Camus dans les années trente, fait faillite malgré les succès de librairie qui caractérisent sa période d'après-guerre. Le Minotaure est l'un des derniers titres de son catalogue, en même temps qu'il marque la fin de la collaboration de Camus avec Charlot qui, cependant, lancera une nouvelle maison d'édition à Alger, Rivages.

Widmungsexemplar - Carson McCullers - McCullers, Carson.
New York, Houghton Mifflin Co. 182 (1 ) p., Kl.-8, Hardcover/Pappeinband Einband leicht fleckig und angestaubt, Buchblock sauber und gut, auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz mit Widmung und Vorname der Autorin : For Elizabeth* / with my love / Carson". Elizabeth ist Elizabeth Bowen - Elizabeth Dorothe Cole Bowen (* 7. Juni 1899 in Dubli - + 22. Februar 1973 in London) war eine irische Schriftstellerin. Als Kind zog sie mit ihren Eltern nach London. Nach der Erkrankung ihres Vaters und dem Tod ihrer Mutter wurde sie ab 1907 von ihren Tanten aufgezogen. Ihr erstes Buch, Encounters erschien 1923. Von 1940 bis 1952 lebte sie in Dublin. Bowen entwuchs einer protestantischen, anglo-irischen Familie, die die Sommer auf dem englischen Familiensitz Bowens Court, die Winter in Dublin verbrachte. Der Schwerpunkt ihrer Romane lag auf der kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit der gehobenen britischen Gesellschaft, deren Zerfall sie beschreibt. Der Verfall der gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen spiegelt sich in ihren Figuren wider, rast- und ziellosen Gestalten, die häufig Sinn- und Beziehungskrisen durchleben. Bowen wird häufig mit Virginia Woolf verglichen, mit der sie auch befreundet war, und, nicht zuletzt wegen der detaillierten psychologischen Beschreibung ihrer Charaktere, mit Jane Austen. Carson McCullers (* 19. Februar 1917 in Columbus/USA - + 29. September 1967 in Nyack/USA eigentlich Lula Carson Smith) war eine US-amerikanische Schriftstellerin.

T S Eliot
London: Faber & Faber, 1950.

This copy inscribed by Eliot: To H. Hope Mirrlees from T. S. Eliot / See p. 142." Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978) was a British translator, poet and novelist. She was a friend of Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, Bertrand Russell, as well as Eliot. Page 142 concerns monkeys, perhaps a reference to Mirrlees's move to South Africa in 1948, but more likely a reference to her most famous novel, Lud-in-the-Mist.

Patrick Leigh Fermor
1950. Book Title: The Traveller's Tree Author: Patrick Leigh Fermor Edition: 1st Publisher: John Murray Year: 1950 Details: First edition and first print published by John Murray in 1950. This copy is signed and doodled by Patrick Leigh Fermor on the front free end paper. The author has drawn an elaborate doodle of The Traveller's Tree and then inscribed inside the sketch 'Anthony and Tania from Paddy' and then dated it. This copy belonged to noted bibliophile, bookbinder and author Anthony Hobson and his bookplate is on the inside board. The book is in near fine condition with bright boards and clean pages. The wrapper is very good with a chip to the front panel top right and also to the top right of the back panel. There is also wear to the corners and edges of the wrapper that is not price clipped. Overall a very good + copy. In this, his first book, Patrick Leigh Fermor recounts his tales of a personal odyssey across the Caribbean. He made his way through the long island chain of the West Indies by steamer, aeroplane and sailing ship, noting in his records of the voyage the minute details of daily life, of the natural surroundings and of the idiosyncratic and distinct civilisations he encountered amongst the Caribbean Islands. A few years after The Traveller's Tree was published, Ian Fleming's Live and Let Die, came out. In Live and Let Die, the book is recommended to James Bond by M, who says: 'It's by a chap who knows what he's talking about,' he said, 'and don't forget that he was writing about what was happening in Haiti in 1950. This isn't medieval black-magic stuf … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fine copy with the inevitable sunning to the spine and edges of the boards, and slight bowing to lower board. In a near fine dust wrapper that shows hints of wear at the extremities.

The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; The Horse and His Boy; The Magician's Nephew; The Last Battle. 7 volumes, octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in full dark blue morocco, titles and decoration to spines gilt, rule to boards gilt, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a dark blue leather entry slipcase. With colour frontispieces and black and white illustrations by Pauline Baynes. A fine set. First editions, first impressions. A complete set of the much acclaimed Narnia series. "The immediate inspiration for 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' was a series of nightmares that Lewis had had about Lions. More seriously, he was concerned to do for children what he had done for an adult readership in his science fiction trilogy... The Narnia novels are not allegorical; they are entirely in keeping with the belief, shared by Lewis and his close friend and Oxford colleague Tolkien, that stories in themselves, especially of the mythical type, can give spiritual nourishment without imparting abstract meaning... As Naomi Lewis has written, the books are 'intoxicating' to all but the most relentlessly unimaginative readers, and must be judged the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a 20th century author".
