        Molloy - Malone meurt - L'innommable

      Les éditions de minuit 1951 - - Les éditions de minuit, Paris 1951-1953, 12x19cm, 3 volumes brochés. - Edition originale sur papier courant pour chacun des volumes. Précieux envois autographes signés de Samuel Beckett à son ami le peintre Geer (Van Velde) et à sa femme Lise sur les deux premiers volumes. « Que dire de ces plans qui glissent, ces contours qui vibrent, ces corps comme taillés dans la brume, ces équilibres qu'un rien doit rompre, qui se rompent, et se reforment à mesure qu'on regarde ? Comment parler de ces couleurs qui respirent, qui halètent ? de cette stase grouillante ? de ce monde sans poids, sans force, sans ombre ? Ici tout bouge, nage, fuit, revient, se défait, se refait. Tout cesse, sans cesse. On dirait l'insurrection des molécules, l'intérieur d'une pierre un millième de seconde avant qu'elle ne se désagrège. C'est ça la littérature. » (La Peinture des van Velde ou Le monde et le pantalon, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945) Beckett ne parle pas ici, malgré les apparences, de son œuvre littéraire mais de la peinture de Geer Van Velde, ajoutant quelques lignes plus loin : « [Bram] Van Velde peint l'étendue. G[eer] Van Velde peint la succession. » Cet éloge, publié à l'occasion de la double exposition des Van Velde, Geer chez Maeght et Bram à la galerie Mai, est le premier texte d'importance sur ces peintres alors à peu près inconnus du public : « On ne fait que commencer à déconner sur les frères Van Velde. J'ouvre la série. C'est un honneur. » Il est aussi le premier texte critique écrit directement en français par un jeune écrivain irlandais qui n'a encore jamais publié en France. Ainsi, le premier et plus important écrit sur l'art de Beckett, composé à l'aube de sa carrière littéraire, instaure, dès l'origine, une relation fondamentale entre son œuvre en gestation et la peinture de ses amis : « Aussi a-t-on souvent lu ce texte en creux, ou en miroir, comme une des rares désignations de la poétique (à venir) de Beckett par lui-même, une sorte de programme anamorphique d'écriture » (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique par Pierre Vilar) Véritable déclaration d'intention du dramaturge, ce texte fondamental - dont Beckett confesse dès l'introduction la valeur introspective : « avec les mots on ne fait que se raconter » - inaugure la période créatrice la plus fructueuse de l'écrivain. En effet, à l'instar d'Apollinaire et de Cendrars, Beckett puise dans les problématiques artistiques de ses contemporains le ferment de son écriture à venir par « la mise en cause la plus profonde des présupposés narratifs, figuratifs ou poétiques. » (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur) L'influence majeure de la peinture moderne sur la structure - ou déstructuration - narrative du théâtre et des romans de Beckett sera révélée et analysée par de nombreux penseurs, dont Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva ou Maurice Blanchot. C'est justement à partir de la peinture des Van Velde, de Geer, puis de Bram, que Beckett formalise cette volonté de traduire la question picturale en dramaturgie. Ainsi refuse-t-il les décors de Nicolas de Staël pour En attendant Godot car : « Il faut que le décor sorte du texte, sans y ajouter. Quant à la commodité visuelle du spectateur, je la mets là où tu penses. Crois-tu vraiment qu'on puisse écouter devant un décor de Bram, ou voir autre chose que lui ? » (Lettre à Georges Duthuit, 1952). Lorsqu'il rencontre Geer en 1937, « Beckett traverse une crise existentielle majeure, il vient de remodeler son premier roman Murphy, refusé par un grand nombre d'éditeurs, il sombre dans l'alcoolisme, quitte l'Irlande et s'installe définitivement à Paris » (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). Il revient d'un long voyage artistique en Allemagne où il s'est imprégné d'œuvres classiques et d'art contemporain - c'est lors de ce voyage qu'il découvre les Deux hommes contemplant la lune de Caspar David Friedrich, à l'origine de En attendant Godot. L'art est alors au cœur de sa réflexion créatrice et [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Archive]: Books from the Library of Dinah Shore

      - An archive of 37 books owned by actress, singer, and television host, Dinah Shore, 29 of which are Inscribed to her. Many of the books were given as gifts to Shore from guests of her Emmy award-winning talk shows: *The Dinah Shore Show* (1951-1963) *Dinah's Place* (1970--1974), *Dinah!* (1974-1980), and *A Conversation with Dinah* (1989-1992). Some Inscriptions included by Barry Goldwater, Margaret Truman, Art Buchwald, Roddy McDowell, and an original poem from Burt Reynolds. Shore (1917-1994), who began her career in the late 1930s, joined Eddie Cantor's radio show recording one of her earliest hits, "Yes, My Darling Daughter," which sold 500,000 copies in 1941. With her star ascending she was cast in a number of films including her debut *Thank Your Lucky Stars* (1943) with Cantor; the ensemble films, *Follow the Boys* (1944) and *Till the Clouds Roll By* (1946); and starring roles in Danny Kaye's debut *Up in Arms* (1944), as well as *Belle of the Yukon* (1945) with Randolph Scott and Gypsy Rose Lee. She also lent her musical voice to two Disney films *Make Mine Music* (1946) and *Fun and Fancy Free* (1947). Throughout her career Shore had a long standing relationship with television through her numerous talk shows and specials, earning nine Emmys and ranking #16 on *TV Guide*'s list of the top television stars of all time.The books, which date from 1939-1990, include a variety of authors and subjects including literature, art, humor, history, politics, child rearing, photography, and music but most notable among them is a small handwritten volume from Burt Reynolds with whom she was involved romantically in the 1970s. The then emerging man's man actor was 38 when they started dating with Shore 20 years his senior. The relationship was a happy one and lasted four years with Reynolds later remarking that she was the love of his life. The charming book consists of a long handwritten poem by Reynolds, entitled "If You Were," composed of a series of verses stating all the things he felt Shore would be, such as: "If you were a City . you would be Paris" and "If you were a Time of Day . you would be a Sunset." An interesting personal collection of books from the library of a groundbreaking female singer, actress, and television pioneer. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Signature, Photograph, Sheet Music and Ephemera

      Exceedingly rare group of items from the French jazz guitarist and composer who was one of the most influential guitarists of his time. He was the creator of the "hot" jazz style of guitar playing, created after two of his fingers on his playing hand were paralyzed from a fire. He died in 1951 at the age of 43 from a brain hemorrhage. Obtained at a Basel performance during Reinhart's 1946 European Tour by Ellis Gruber, an amateur jazz pianist who while in Europe for medical school was commissioned by the Melody Maker paper (London) to attend and write a review of the Django show. The small collection includes a 1 ¼" x 5 ¾" cut signature signed in black fountain pen, together with a few pages from a scrapbook that were assembled from that concert including the previously mentioned newspaper article, an original and unique snapshot photograph from the concert, the pay stub for the review, and a program insert noting the substitution of drummer Bob Bouraz and giving the guitar brand "MAJOR" used by Django. Also included is a scarce sheet music edition, the "2éme ALBUM DE DJANGO REINHARDT" (Paris: Publications Francis Day, 1945), Folio, 20 pp, including eight compositions dated 1941 - 1945. Reinhardt remains one of the most renowned jazz guitarists and with violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he cofounded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as "one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz."

        Eigenh. Brief m. U. „Felix".

      o. O., 17. II. 1951. - 8vo. 1 p. An eine „Liebe Stella": „Leider geht es an dem von Dir vorgeschlagenen Tag nicht, es wird sich vor dem Wiener Musikfest überhaupt kaum mehr einrichten lassen, da mein eigentliches Leben auf den Sonntag zusammengeschrumpft ist, meine Proben daher die Sonntage ausfüllen werden, da in der Woche nicht das kleinste ,Fensterl’ ist [ ]" - Felix Petyrek war Sohn des Organisten und Chordirigenten August Petyrek, der erzbischöflicher Organist in Olmütz war. Ab 1894 erhielt dieser eine Professur in Brünn und gab auch erste musikalische Unterweisungen an seinen Sohn. Felix Petyrek studierte Musikwissenschaft bei Guido Adler und Komposition an der Musikakademie bei Franz Schreker. Im Ersten Weltkrieg wurde Petyrek aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nicht an die Front eingezogen, sondern musste im Lager bei St. Andrä Kriegsgefangene betreuen. Er sammelte dort Lieder und Gesänge der aus vielen Nationen stammenden Gefangenen. Zusammen mit Bernhard Paumgartner und Alois Hába arbeitete er an der Musikhistorischen Zentrale beim k. u. k. Kriegsministerium. Ab 1919 lehrte Petyrek am Mozarteum. In Salzburg lernte er das "Wunderkind" Loris Margaritis kennen, mit dem ihm fortan eine Freundschaft verband.Nachdem Petyrek aus gesundheitlichen Gründen drei Jahre in Abbazia gelebt hatte, ging er 1926 nach Athen, wo er die Meisterklasse für Klavier leitete und auch als Lektor für Musikwissenschaft tätig war. Bereits nach einem Jahr hatte seine Klavierklasse ein hohes künstlerisches Niveau erreicht. Gleichzeitig gab er Vorträge und publizierte in Fachzeitschriften, vieles davon auf griechisch.Später lehrte er noch an den Musikhochschulen in Stuttgart und Leipzig, wo er sich der Bedeutung pädagogisch orientierter Stücke (die sich gleichermaßen zu Studienzwecken und zum Konzertvortrag eignen) widmete.Nachdem während der NS-Zeit seine Emigrationspläne die Schweiz wiederholt scheiterten und Scheidungskosten von seiner ersten Frau ihn immer mehr in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten brachten, trat er der NSDAP bei, um einem Amtsentzug zuvorzukommen. Von 1949 bis 1951 war er Professor an der Wiener Musik-Akademie. Im Dezember 1951 verstarb Felix Petyrek an Bluthochdruck, Herzerweiterung und frischem Schlaganfall mit Halbseiten-Lähmung rechts.Ein Archiv der europäischen Volksmusik konnte er nicht mehr vollenden. Sein Nachlass befindet sich im Archiv der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Wien.

        Typed Letter Signed ("C.G. Jung").

      Zurich, January 30, 1951 - 4to. 1 page. With typed transmittal envelope and the carbon copy of the 4-page typed letter by Code to which this is the reply, modest overall toning and edge-wear. „As far as I can judge from the distance, the case of the child you describe is that of a hysterical dissociation. Jung writes to Grant Code in New York. Jung provides advice to the caregiver of a 13-year old girl, recommending drawing as a "helpful outlet for bottled up unconscious phantasies." However, he concludes, "This is a badly prejudiced case, I'm afraid, and the outlook into the future is not particularly bright. But in the right hands even such people can develop and become not exactly normal but at least possible." Code's description of the girl's symptoms and history are pitiable.

        Requiem for a Nun

      Random House, NY 1951 - First edition. One of 750 copies signed by Faulkner. This novel was written as a sequel to Sanctuary, and Faulkner structured it as a three-part play. This treatment allowed it to be adapted for the stage by Ruth Ford, though its run on Broadway in 1959 was unsuccessful. The staging of Requiem was better received in France, where the text was translated by Albert Camus. Ownership inscription to front paste-down, some shelfwear to bottom edges, spine lightly sunned, else a near fine copy. Original acetate wrapper present, showing some discoloration and loss to edges. (Petersen A32.1a). [Attributes: First Edition]
