        Schriftsteller (1930-1990): Eigenh. Manuskript des Gedichtes "Traumgaleere" m. U. Ohne Ort u. Dat. (ca. 1956). 4°. 1 S.

      . . "Traumgaleere /// Der Mond ist über den Strom gespannt, / In dem die Fische schlaflos laichen, / Die Sternenwinde sind verbannt, / Der Tag schickt seine Morsezeichen. /// Es bringen den ersten Sonnenstrahl / Dir in den Kerker die Gewehre: / Durch diesen Vorhang aus blauem Stahl / Musst Du erst fliehn! Die Traumgaleere /// Führt Dich bis zu des Zwielichts Saum. / Da falln im Hof bereits die Schüsse. / Du spürst das heisse Eisen kaum / Und hörst nicht mehr das Echo der Flüsse. /// Horst Bienek" - // - Der aus Oberschlesien vertriebene Horst Bienek wurde 1951 von Bertolt Brecht als Meisterschüler an dessen Berliner Ensemble geholt. Dieser setzte sich nicht für ihn ein, als er im November 1951 verhaftet und in einem Schauprozess wegen "antisowjetischer Hetze" und angeblicher Spionage für die USA zu 20 Jahren Zwangsarbeit im Kohlebergbau im russischen Arbeitslager Workuta, jenseits des Polarkreises verurteilt wurde. - Unser Gedicht entstand vermutlich noch in diesem Teil des sowjetischen Gulags. aus dem Bienek Ende 1955 wieder freikam. Danach ging er in die Bundesrepublik. - Gedruckt in der ersten Buchveröffentlichung (München 1957) von Horst Bienek: "Traumbuch eines Gefangenen". - Auf der Rückseite wenige Zahlen (wohl von fremder Hand) in Bleistift, diese wären leicht ausradierbar, sonst sehr gut.

        The Catcher In The Rye

      Boston: Little Brown, 1951. Boston: Little Brown, 1951. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a bright fine dust jacket without the usual tanning to the spine and without any chips or tears. The dust jacket is the correct first issue with the cropping of Salinger's head on the rear panel and the price on the front flap. Housed in a custom clamshell box. An exceptional copy.Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.

Elaborately inscribed by Hirschfield on the light blue front blank, "To Arnold Weissberger, with affection, Al Hirschfield. 1/27/54", along with a large drawing in red ink by Hirschfield, who has incorporated the publisher's logo printed into a typical self-portrait - as a slightly crazed looking, hirsute figure - the Simon and Schuster device forming the fretboard and sound-hole of a bass-like instrument in the artist's hands. Also on the front free endpaper is a gift inscription in another hand presenting the book to Weissberger, who was a New York-based theatrical lawyer and celebrity photographer with a wide international clientele. Weissberger may have received the book as a gift and then had Hirschfield inscribe it later.

        Comment voudriez-vous voir R. L. Dupuy

      , 1951 1951. Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. Unique collection of 74 watercolors, ink drawings, collages and mixed media playful caricatures of a Parisian advertising executive, presumably by members of his creative staff. Most of the individual send-ups are imaginative and amusing; the cumulative effect, though, is truly extraordinary in the sheer variety and range of the works. As a whole the album honors not merely a particular individual, but the human creative spirit! Thus we have a Soviet Dupuy, an angelic Dupuy, an overworked Dupuy, a gaucho Dupuy, a scout Dupuy, a wandering eye Dupuy, a lolling Dupuy; he is depicted as a painter, a mariner, a general, and on and on. These various roles assigned to him scarcely suggest the richness of ideas of the particular artwork. In just one drawing, showing the executive in a bathtub, we see floating atop the water the names of products, presumably ones he promoted, and other names spraying over him from the showerhead. Dupuy, based on the wealth of images we have of him, was a quintessential Frenchman in his appearance; we can also surmise that he was beloved, if not also feared a bit, and certainly, he had to have had a charisma, for few businessmen have probably ever received such an effortful and remarkable tribute as represented by this manuscript. The folio measures 33 by 28 cm, 13 by 11 inches. With a dust jacket that at its center has a cameo relief of Dupuy himself. The DJ, now protected with mylar, has use creases, minor spotting and toning. The leaves are all clean, and the album is tight.

        Le ressassement éternel.

      Les éditions de minuit 1951 - " - Les éditions de minuit, Paris _1951, 11,5x18,5cm, relié. - Edition originale, un des 990 exemplaires sur Ghaldwill, seuls grands papiers après 10 pur fil. Reliure en demi maoquin bleu, dos lisse, date dorée en queue, plats recouverts de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier bleu, couvertures et dos conservés (dos légèrement insolé et comportant de petits manques comblés), tête dorée, reliure signée de Goy & Vilaine. Exceptionnel et émouvant envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à sa mère et à sa soeur : " Pour vous mes très chères, ces pages, hélas bien anciennes, en toute affection. Maurice. / Mais avant le commencement, il y a le recommencement qui fait de la lumière une fascination, de toute chose une image et de nous le coeur vide du ressassement éternel". Page de faux-titre sur laquelle figure l'envoi très légèrement et marginalement ombrée. Marguerite Blanchot, organiste de renom à la cathédrale de Chalon, demeura toute sa vie dans la maison familiale, avec sa mère et sa tante. "Elle deviendra peu à peu, pour la famille, comme la mémoire des origines." Très proche de Maurice, elle correspond régulièrement avec l'écrivain qui lui témoigne une grande reconnaissance pour son dévouement envers leur mère impotente. Si l'intense affection de Blanchot pour sa mère et sa soeur transparait dans les dédicaces de celui-ci, on ne sait presque rien de leur relations. Dans l'unique essai biographique sur Blanchot, Christophe Bident nous révèle cependant : "Marguerite Blanchot vénérait son frère Maurice. Très fière de lui, ( ) elle attachait une grande importance à ses idées politiques ( ). Elle lisait beaucoup (.) Ils se téléphonaient, correspondaient. A distance, ils partageaient la même autorité naturelle, le même souci de discrétion." Blanchot lui adresse en effet de nombreux ouvrages provenant de sa bibliothèque, maintenant avec elle un lien intellectuel continu. Quant à la passion de Blanchot pour sa mère, c'est au détour de son &#156;uvre que l'on en découvre les plus beaux témoignages: "Peut-être la puissance de la figure maternelle emprunte-t-elle son éclat à la puissance même de la fascination, et l&#146;on pourrait dire que si la Mère exerce cet attrait fascinant, c&#146;est qu&#146;apparaissant quand l&#146;enfant vit tout entier sous le regard de la fascination, elle concentre en elle tous les pouvoirs de l&#146;enchantement". Cultivant une discrétion absolue, Blanchot poussait l'art de l'effacement jusque dans ses dédicaces manuscrites généralement succinctes et rédigées presque systématiquement sur des cartes jointes aux rares ouvrages qu'il offrait à ses proches amis. A l'opposé, dans ces précieux envois à sa mère et sa s&#156;ur, Blanchot s'offre dans toute sa fragilité et dévoile une intimité jusqu'alors inconnue. Bel exemplaire parfaitement établi. Autographes d'exception" [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Catcher In The Rye

      Boston: Little Brown, 1951.. Boston: Little Brown, 1951. First edition of the author&#39;s first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a bright near fine dust jacket without the usual tanning to the spine and without any chips or tears. The dust jacket is the correct first issue with the cropping of Salinger&#39;s head on the rear panel and the price on the front flap. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional copy. Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he&#39;s been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you&#39;ll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don&#39;t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.

        Colloque de l'Institut Blaise Pascal 8-13 janvier 1951. Les machines a calculer et la pensee humaine.

      Paris 1951 - Centre national de la recherche scientifique. Colloque de l'Institut Blaise Pascal 8-13 janvier 1951. Les machines a calculer et la pense e humaine. Paris: Centre national de la recherche scientifique, 1951. Mimeographed typescript, bound with printed program. Black cloth. Program: [4]pp. Text: [119]ff., variously numbered. 267 x 208 mm. The program and the mimeographed synopses and translations were distributed separately at the conference. They were later bound together in this volume. Light to moderate toning. Provenance: Alwin Walther and the Institut fur Praktische Mathematik at Technische Hochschule, Darmstadt, with rubber stamp. This was the first full-scale symposium on electronic computing in France. Bound in this volume are the original printed program of the conference together with mimeographed synopses of each speech presented. In handing out these synopses the organizers provided English summaries of some of the speeches that were presented in French and French summaries of some of the speeches that were presented in English. These summaries and partial translations were not included in the official published edition that appeared two years later. In that edition the list of attendees was published. It indicated that Alwin Walther, the former owner of this material, was one of about three hundred people in attendance.A notable aspect of this large symposium on analog and digital electronic computing machines was that, unlike all other early conferences on electronic computers, there was no stored-program electronic digital computer demonstrated. Instead Louis Couffignal, director of the Laboratoire de Calcul Mecanique at the Institut Blaise Pascal, demonstrated the prototype of his own much-publicized electronic calculator, a binary machine whose design emphasized organization of calculation procedures rather than the storage of programs and data. This took place at the symposium's third session on "large computing machines, logic, and the physiology of the nervous system." That section took a cybernetic approach. Couffignal chose to make the last presentation at the conference, speaking on "Some new analogies between computing machine structures and brain structures." Couffignal's preference for a non-stored-program approach to computing caused a setback in the nascent French electronic computer industry. The physicist and Nobel prize winner Louis de Broglie gave the keynote address at the conference. Among the other speakers were Howard Aiken, who provided a serious illustrated account of the Harvard Mark IV; Andrew D. Booth; Warren S. McCulloch; Gonzalo Torres y Quevedo; Norbert Wiener; Maurice Wilkes; F. C. Williams; and Tom Kilburn. Eduard Stiefel presented an extensively illustrated account of the use of the Z4 at Zurich to solve specific problems, which is separately noted in this bibliography.When we checked no copies of these ephemeral documents were cited in OCLC. Origins of Cyberspace 526. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
