Vous trouverez, sur notre boutique Ebay, sur notre site Internet, des lettres autographes et des manuscrits de ceux qui firent la gloire des Arts, de la Littérature, de notre Histoire et de la Science durant les siècles passés. Salvador DALÍ (1904.1989) Dessin original signé. Encre de Chine sur papier. Signé et daté "Salvador Dalí 1951" Études pour les illustrations des pages XIX et XXX de son Manifeste mystique. Splendide dessin surréaliste du peintre catalan laissant figurer deux autels à décors atomiques parfaitement emblématiques de sa période de Mysticisme corpusculaire. En marge gauche, Dalí ajoute avec conviction : Vive Gala ! Vive Gala ! Vive Gala ! Vive Gala ! Vive Gala ! Corpuscule et onde de mon Misticisme ! Durant cette période de mysticisme atomique, Dalí s'inspira de la physique atomique, et des particules élémentaires séparées par le vide se maintiennent en équilibre, tout en formant à échelle macroscopique un ensemble cohérent. L'œuvre phare de cette période est exposée à la Fondation Gala - Salvador Dalí : Leda atómica. Dans le Manifeste mystique, Dalí explique le changement opéré en lui dès la fin des années 40: « Les choses les plus subversives qui peuvent arriver à un ex-surréaliste sont deux : première, devenir mystique, et seconde, savoir dessiner : ces deux formes de vigueur viennent de m'arriver ensemble et en même temps à moi ».

Catcher in the Rye J.D. Salinger 1951 1st / 1st printing Rare The Catcher in the Rye By J.D. Salinger Published by: Little, Brown, and Company Printed in: 1951 Pages: 277 ----- Features ----- - Original Black Boards - First edition, First printing Condition This book is a First edition, First printing. This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the top of the spine. The lettering to the spine is faded. There is some yellowing to the endpapers and no signatures, bookplate, or markings of any other kind. The pages are clean and free of any foxing. This is a rare First edition of a Salinger's classic that's a rare find in any condition. Synopsis Written in the first person, The Catcher in the Rye follows Holden's experiences in New York City in the days following his expulsion from Pencey Prep, a college preparatory school. Holden spends a total of two days in the city, characterized largely by drunkenness and loneliness. It is clear to the reader, if not to Holden, that the teenager is afraid and nervous about the process of change and growing up. These concerns may largely have stemmed from the death of his brother, Allie. Eventually, he sneaks into his parents' apartment to visit his younger sister Phoebe, who is nearly the only person with whom he seems to be able to communicate. Holden shares a fantasy he has been thinking about; he pictures himself as the sole guardian of several children playing a game of ball in a huge rye field on the edge of a cliff. His job is to catch the children if they wander close to the brink, to be a "catcher in the rye". As Holden … [Click Below for Full Description]

Salinger, J. D.
Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1951. Hard Cover. First Edition. Near Fine / Dust Jacket Included. First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, lettered in gilt to spine; in the original first issue dust jacket designed by Michael Mitchell with the "$3.00" printed over the shoulder of the "R", illustration of a merry-go-round horse in front of a cityscape to front panel, lettered in yellow and black, photographic portrait of Salinger by Lotte Jacobi to rear panel.

Overall, a handsome copy free of any repairs or restoration. The Catcher in the Rye is J. D. Salinger's first and only novel. It tells the story of protagonist and anti-hero Holden Caulfield, a disillusioned teenager who flees his prep school to wander the streets of New York City. Almost immediately after publication, Catcher in the Rye became both extremely popular and highly controversial. While many young people identified with Caulfield's teenage rebellion, critics were wary of the protagonist's explicit language and open questioning of his own sexuality. In 1981, Catcher in the Rye was simultaneously the second most taught novel in American public schools and the one of the nation's most censored books. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

De Mexico, N.R. (pseud. of Robert Campbell Bragg)
Universal Publishing and Distributing Corporation, New York, 1951. Digest-sized octavo (18cm); photo-illustrated wrappers; [4],5-127,[1]pp ads. Hint of a forward lean, light external wear, with a few short tears and attendant creases; mild tanning to text edges, else clean throughout; Very Good. Bragg's much-scandalized pseudonymously-written novel about a "fresh and fetching" seventeen year old girl who got "hooked" on marijuana at the hands of an older man out to seduce her. "But after that drug-induced ecstasy, Joyce's pretty feet trod the path of degeneracy. Here we study every nuance of her disturbing relations with other teen-agers, with mature men out for "kicks." We watch her resorting to every vile device, trading herself, body and soul for the drugs she had to have." Originally issued as a digest-sized paperback in 1951, the novel served as Exhibit A in Congressman Ezekiel C. Gathings's House Select Committee on the proliferation of literature he considered a pox on American society, refering to the novel as "A Manual of Instruction for Potential Narcotic Addicts." All four edition of the novel are scarce; OCLC notes a single holding (Temple University). Gertz, p.6-8; Hubin, p.113. [Attributes: First Edition]

OUR COLLECTION OF WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HOME IN VENTNOR THE CITY NEXT TO OUR GREAT ATLANTIC CITY. Roland De Hellebranth A Doctor who performed surgeries at home and sisters Bertha de Hellebranth and Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people. So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi), President Theodore Roosevelt's granddaughter Paulina Longworth and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Isaac Asimov
New York: Gnome Press, 1951. This has the true first edition cover in dark blue with the red writing on the spine. It has the first edition date of 1951 and "First Edition" imprinted . This was published by Gnome Press. I believe this to be a second printing as identified on the rear flap that lists Foundation and Second Foundation for purchase. The cover is bright and clean with some light wear on the edges as can be seen in the pictures. The previous owner put a book jacket cover to help preserve the color and condition of the jacket. The binding is tight with all the pages tight and clean with no writing anywhere. All the pages are a uniform light brown color which I assume, is due to the quality of the paper and age. Overall, this book is in great condition. For the Isaac Asimov fans and science fiction lovers, here is your opportunity to own a first edition, award-winning, genre establishing book.

Catcher in the Rye J.D. Salinger 1951 1st / 1st printing Rare The Catcher in the Rye By J.D.

This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the top of the spine. The lettering to the spine is faded. There is some yellowing to the endpapers and no signatures, bookplate, or markings of any other kind. The pages are clean and free of any foxing. This is a rare First edition of a Salinger's classic that's a rare find in any condition. Synopsis Written in the first person, The Catcher in the Rye follows Holden's experiences in New York City in the days following his expulsion from Pencey Prep, a college preparatory school. Holden spends a total of two days in the city, characterized largely by drunkenness and loneliness. It is clear to the reader, if not to Holden, that the teenager is afraid and nervous about the process of change and growing up. These concerns may largely have stemmed from the death of his brother, Allie. Eventually, he sneaks into his parents' apartment to visit his younger sister Phoebe, who is nearly the only person with whom he seems to be able to communicate. Holden shares a fantasy he has been thinking about; he pictures himself as the sole guardian of several children playing a game of ball in a huge rye field on the edge of a cliff. His job is to catch the children if they wander close to the brink, to be a "catcher in the rye". As Holden … [Click Below for Full Description]

Salinger, J.D
Boston: Little Brown and Company, 1951. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. 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. Jacket design by Michael Mitchell. Photograph of Salinger by Lotte Jacobi. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. 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.".

Ludwig Bemelmans
1951. With an original drawing by Ludwig Bemelmans, who is most famous for the children's series Madeline, the toughest among the twelve little girls in two straight lines. His funny Thurberesque drawings also adorn this autobiographical romp of driving across France impersonating a royal. Bemelmans teams up with an aristo on his uppers, Monsieur Le Comte de St. Cucuface. The two tricksters cage, inveigle, and wheedle royal-worshipers out of food and lodging. It's funny, never acerbic or mean, and gives a good change if one has been reading heavy stuff.

This is a Donald A. Wollheim's publisher's review copy, a collector-worthy example in dust jacket and an important association copy that belonged to "one of the most important editorial influences on sf". Doubleday & Company's bright yellow "BOOK FOR REVIEW" slip is laid in at the half-title, specifying a publication date of "October 11, 1951". Wollheim's name is ink-stamped on the verso of the final blank endpaper and is the only previous ownership mark in the book. Condition is fine in a near fine dust jacket. The cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners. We note no appreciable soiling or wear and only minor wrinkling to the spine ends. The contents show only age-toning to the page edges and inner margins, but are otherwise unspoiled, with no soiling or spotting. The dust jacket is bright and complete, retaining the original $2.75 front flap price. Trivial wear is confined primarily to the spine ends. We note very light soiling to the extremities of the rear face and only touch of toning to the jacket spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover and the book resides in a clamshell case with paper spine label and pinkish-purple cloth matching the background hue of the dust jacket.
