        La Ballade de la geôle de reading [The Ballad of Reading Gaol] [Inscribed by Camus]

      Falaize, (Paris) 1952 - An out-of-series copy of this bilingual edition of 3000 numbered copies of Wilde's poem, printed here with Camus' "L'Artiste en Prison," which delineates Wilde's journey from themes of ideal beauty to existential suffering. Inscribed by Camus (in French): "to Sylvestre,/ a remembrance of Iguape/ and with the friendly thoughts/ of Albert Camus." While context does not give explanation to the reference to Iguape, one of Camus' last stories, "The Growing Stone" -- the final story in Camus' last collection, Exile and the Kingdom -- is set in Iguape, Brazil. It has been said that this story is the clearest manifestation of Camus' ideals: in it, the protagonist sacrifices himself to help a friend, and behaves morally despite his own understanding of the absurdity of the world. Camus won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, the year Exile and the Kingdom was published, and the Prize committee cited his "clear-sighted earnestness [which] illuminates the problems of the human conscience in our times." As best we can tell, this is the first appearance in print of "L'Artiste en Prison," which was translated into English and published in Encounter magazine two years later. A very near fine copy in French wraps. Books inscribed by Camus are uncommon; the author died in 1960 in a car accident, at the age of 46. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Approach to Infinity

      [Roy Squires], [Glendale, CA] 1952 - [Glendale, CA]: [Roy Squires], [1952]. First and only edition. Signed by Dollens and inscribed to Barbara Champlin on the "About the Artist" page. Illustrated throughout by Dollens. Unpaginated, but 14 pp, including wraps. A little age toning of the paper, else fine. Extraordinarily rare and visionary little black-and-white paper opus published by Roy Squires in Glendale in 1952 (though nowhere so credited within), with front and rear wrapper illustrations based on photographic miniatures with projected backgrounds, the illustrations within reproduced from water-color and tempera paintings, partly sprayed through stencils, all by Dollens. The theme herein, for the images and the text (also by Dollens), is a mystical one of man's approaching destiny out there somewhere in the endless stars, with a sense that this is so very natural, a step in our spiritual evolution. Somewhere in the web between the text and illustrations lies an oddly almost religious mood. Looking at it, reading it, this unpretentious little book really does seem to crystalize what science fiction is all about for many of us - as does the title itself. Subsequent readings then almost feel like a benediction. Sounds like a very lot from a very little, but that's what Dollens achieved here. The multi-talented Dollens was a long-time science-fiction illustrator and photographer, with numerous cover and internal illustration credits in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Aboriginal Science Fiction, Science Fiction Advertiser, Fantasy Advertiser, Räuber auf Selena, The Future Is Now, Gamma: New Frontiers in Fiction, and others, and was the dustjacket portrait photographer for such authors as Ray Bradbury (The Martian Chronicles, Something Wicked This Way Comes) and Chad Oliver (The Winds of Time), not to mention non-sci-fi works such as the photography for Karen Kuykendall's Every Cats. Inscription to Barbara Champlin is in blue-green ink, next to his professional address at the time (presumably circa 1952, though the inscription is undated) at 3771 Motor Avenue, Los Angeles 34 California. A very early creation for both Dollens and publisher Roy Squires. Try finding another one of these. L-100 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        LE CON D'IRÈNE.

      1952 - Sans lieu [Paris], Chez l'Auteur [Jean-Jacques Pauvert], 1952. In-8 (142 X 227) broché, couverture rempliée imprimée en rouge et noir, dos muet ; 107 pages. Le cinquième feuillet (pages 9-10) est manquant, découpé par l?éditeur, comme pour tous les exemplaires. Il contenait l'achevé d'imprimer avec la mention "Éditions J.-J. Pauvert", et a été supprimé par crainte des foudres de la censure et d'une éventuelle condamnation. Infimes rousseurs dans les barbes. ÉDITION CLANDESTINE ornée en frontispice d'une gravure à l'eau-forte d'Hans BELLMER. Il s'agit de la deuxième édition du texte, et du PREMIER TIRAGE du frontispice. TIRAGE UNIQUE sur beau papier limité à 100 EXEMPLAIRES numérotés sur vergé d'ARCHES (n°6). Le titre et la pagination sont imprimés en rouge. C'est Hans BELLMER qui a conçu la maquette de l'ouvrage : dessin du titre, choix de la typographie et mise en page. Publiée sans nom d'auteur ni d'éditeur, cette oeuvre n'était pas destinée à être mise dans le commerce. L'édition courante paraitra l'année suivante, cette fois avec le nom de l'éditeur "Pauvert". L'édition originale, illustrée de cinq eaux-fortes libres d'André Masson avait été éditée par René Bonnel en 1928. "Le Con d'Irène" n'est pas qu'une oeuvre alimentaire. Son écriture seule suffirait à lui dénier cette qualification. On sait maintenant qu'elle se rattache à "La Défense de l'infini", le grand roman qu'Aragon détruisit un jour d'automne 1927 dans un hôtel de Madrid. Cette édition n'est citée ni dans la bibliographie d'Aragon de Crispin Geoghegan ni dans celle des livres érotiques de Pascal Pia. SPLENDIDE RÉALISATION de l'éditeur Jean-Jacques Pauvert. (Dutel, 1764. ? Denoël, 26. ? Coron, "Des Livres rares", 161). NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
