        Présence de Ramuz *

      Guilde du Livre, Lausanne 31.10.1952. - Broché 29 x 23, couverture imprimée bicolore rempliée, sous étui-boîte pleine soie bleu violacé, accordé à la couleur du titre, de Jacques Menétrey, dos titré en doré avec inclusion de deux timbres poste, noyés dans une cuvette en tête et en queue, figurant Ramuz et Giacometti. Superbe exemplaire de luxe, peu connu, de cet hommage collectif à l'écrivain qui parraina la fondation de la Guilde, absent à l'expo d'Engelberts de 1970 présentant 110 dessins, livres & estampes de Giacometti, pas plus qu'à celle de 1967 qui proposait chez le même galiériste-éditeur une sorte de première mouture de catalogue raisonné de l'oeuvre gravé.Le portrait de Ramuz fait vraisemblablement partie des débuts lithographiques de l'artiste, dont le premier livre illustré par cette technique signalé dans les deux catalogues précités est "Le Balcon" de Jean Genet en 1956.Le nôtre sous un habit soyeux judicieusement choisi, rappelle les tirages de tête réservés aux animateurs de la Guilde. Il comporte en sus une lettre tapuscrite signée de la main de Ramuz, présentée sous passe de papier délicatement chiné, ainsi qu'une carte autographe d'Auberjonois en regard d'une reproduction d'un dessin de l'artiste qui, comme l'estampe de Giacometti, n'est réservée qu'aux bénéficiaire du tirage de luxe.Bon exemple de mise en boîte bibliophilatéliste. Si on sait que les figures des timbres sont de Hans Erni, on ignore généralement qu'elles furent gravées sur acier par Karl Albrecht Bickel. On y joint le petit fascicule présentant les cinq vignettes de la série, publié le jour de l'émission qui en donne les renseignements.Contributions de Roud, Cocteau, Cingria, Ansermet, Mermod, un inédit de l'écrivain "Un coin de Savoie" et des témoignages de ses proches.Exemplaire sans truffe, broché tel que paru sur demande.[Bringolf 90] Édition originale, parmi les 180 exemplaires de tête numérotés sur vélin Johannot, I/XC (XI) au nom de la Guilde (les autres sont à "l'Art au village"), outre 5'000 Zuber et Rieder.

        Four Quartets

      London: Faber and Faber,, 1952. Octavo. Original beige cloth, titles gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. Slight tanning along board edges, light spotting to endpapers; a very good copy in the rubbed and soiled jacket. Presentation copy of the ninth impression of the first UK collected edition (first published thus in the UK in 1944, in the US in 1943, and originally published in four separate volumes in 1940-1); this copy inscribed by Eliot on the title page, "Inscribed for Hugo Manning Esquire, by T. S. Eliot". Hugo Manning (1913-77) was a Jewish poet who served as a Lance-Corporal in the Intelligence Corps in North Africa, was wounded out in 1944, lived for some time in Buenos Aires, and corresponded with (often sending poems to) a range of writers including Henry Miller, Nancy Cunard, T.S. Eliot, Eugene O'Neill, Ezra Pound, and Muriel Spark. Literary critic Mario Praz praised Manning's long poem The Secret Sea (Villiers, 1962) as "an outstanding contribution to the enrichment of the English language", and has also noted the influence of Eliot on Manning's work. His poems went out of print at his death, but a collection compiled by Ivan Savidge, with an introduction by Kathleen Raine, was published in 1997; the University of Texas in Austin holds his papers.

        Codicé Mexicanus. Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris. Nos 23-24

      2 sections. [387]-498+[1 plate] pages with tables, figures and bibliography. Part 2 Codex: 102 facsimile plates. Small folio (11 1/4" x 7 1/4") bound in original wrappers. Journal de la Société des Américanistes, New Series, volume XLI. Includes the following articles. L'ajagak, bilboquet eskimo by Robert Gessain; Collections archeologiques martinquaises de Musee de l'Homme by Raoul d'Harcourt; Introduction a l'archeologie martiniquaise by Le Pere Rober Pinchon; As mascaras-de-dansa dos Pancararu de Tacaratu by Estevao Pinto. First edition.The Codex Mexicanus is a late-sixteenth-century native manuscript with calendrical, genealogical, historical, and biblical contents presented in both pictures and prose. It is a small manuscript (measuring 10 × 20 centimeters), painted on native bark paper and bound as a Western book. The presence of two distinct hands (Mengin, 1952, p. 395), as well as multiple erasures and palimpsests, makes it clear that the manuscript was not written in a single period but instead was used, annotated, and altered over time. There are large gaps in our knowledge of the manuscript's history. Its authors were anonymous Nahuatl speakers; little is known about the circumstances of the manuscript's creation or use. In fact, we do not know anything of its history and provenience with certainty until its nineteenth-century ownership, first by Joseph Aubin and then by Eugène Goupil. It is now held at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. The manuscript is a composite one, consisting of several distinct sections. In order of their progression, these are an incomplete, European-derived Saint's day calendar (pp. 2?8); several pages with European calendrical and astrological information, including both a European and a native calendar wheel (pp. 9?12); charts with tonalpohualli day names and coefficients (pp. 13?14) and dates and numbers in both European and native systems (p. 15); genealogies of several Mexica rulers (pp. 16?17); year count annals that include the years 1168 through 1590 (pp. 18?87); biblical scenes (p. 88); and finally, a partial tonalamatl (pp. 89?101). The year count provides the history of the Mexica from their migration from Aztlán to Tenochtitlan and continues through the Conquest and Early Colonial period. Pages 24?34 of the year count annals contain Nahuatl texts in alphabetic script that treat the signs of the European Zodiac. The Codex Mexicanus can be likened to an almanac, in this case a personal reference work created and annotated by an educated Nahua. Traditionally, the Codex Mexicanus has been seen as an example of the fairly quick and complete process of acculturation (both artistic and intellectual) undergone by the Nahua during the course of the sixteenth century. This is the view taken by Donald Robertson (1994), for instance. A great deal of the manuscript's contents are clearly European-derived (such as the saint's day calendar and zodiacal information), and these demonstrate the influence of European thought on Nahua thought. It is in part this very hybridity, however, that makes the manuscript useful to scholars. The Codex Mexicanus provides us with an example of the intellectual reactions of the Nahua to the new ideas (in particular, calendrical and zodiacal ones) that entered Mexico during the Colonial period. It is a valuable source on Nahua culture of the early Colonial period because it provides a firsthand view of some of the ways in which the Nahua actively adapted their traditional modes of expression and their traditional knowledge to incorporate Spanish ideas.condition:Some soiling to the wrappers, edges and spine sunned, some edge wear else a very good copy

        Educating Archie: Series 3, Episode 9

      Np [BBC], London 1952 - 20 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. Tear without loss to title page, a little foxing to rear page, dusty and age-toned. First edition. Series 3, Episode 9, first broadcast 13 November 1952. AUTHOR ERIC SYKES' COPY, WITH HIS DISTINCTIVE SWIRLING INITIALS TO TITLE PAGE. NO RECORDING OF THIS EPISODE EXISTS. Two cast additions for the third series cemented the show's success. The new tutor was played by Harry Secombe, already wildy popular for his work on The Goon Show. And in the role of Monica the lisping schoolgirl ('Aren't I the absolute terminus!') was Beryl Reid. She dressed in gymslip and pigtails for each recording, and would go on to play the Brummie Marlene in later series of the show.

Dwiggins in 1921 and printed for the first time by Dorothy Abbe in 1952 from the original blocks.

In Dwiggins&#39;s illustration, the puppet sits in front of a wall covered in blue and yellow jacquard wallpaper holding a book and looking wistful. Originally mounted on a single sheet folded to make four pages, on the inside of which was printed the musical theme from Stravinsky&#39;s ballet. The woodcut is now matted separately.

        CHARLOTTE'S WEB

      Harper 1952 - First edition. Original publisher's pictorial cloth in (supplied) dustwrapper. Author's presentation copy, inscribed to friend and fellow novelist, Elizabeth Taylor on the front end paper, "For Elizabeth Taylor / and I do like Irish whiskey / E B White". A very good copy, with some toning to the spine and a little wear to the spine ends and slight looseness to the initial pages. The dustwrapper is near fine, clean and bright with trivial wear and a thin chip to one corner. Colour dustwrapper by Garth Williams and numerous line drawings in the text also by Williams. Elizabeth Taylor, the critically regarded British novelist, described by Kingsley Amis as "One of the best English novelists born this century", whose writing career was forced into relative obscurity as a consequence of coinciding with the rise of her more famous namesake, the American actress. Her style was in the mould of Ivy Compton-Burnett, Barbara Pym and Elizabeth Bowen, and has only recently been recognised as one of the important authors of the twentieth century. She wrote twelve novels and many short stories, most of which were originally published in, The New Yorker, where E.B.White's wife, Katherine, was her first editor. Taylor rarely travelled to American so did not often meet White, but they became good friends via a long and frequent correspondence. Charlotte's Web was one of Taylor's favourite books and was a story she read aloud to her grandchildren. E.B. White was known to be a great fan of whiskey, often having a bottle to hand to offer guests and storing all his manuscripts in old whiskey boxes. Presentation copies of Charlotte's Web of significant literary association are genuinely rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        FRAGMENTS OF A DISORDERED DEVOTION

      [San Francisco: Privately Published by The Author], 1952.. Octavo. Folded, gathered, unbound sheets, laid into plain outer folded wrapper. Text and drawings multilithed in blue and black in facsimile of the author&#39;s hand. Early reinforcement of fold of terminal bifolium, else fine. First edition. One of approximately fifty copies printed for distribution by the author as a holiday booklet in 1952, and sparingly, as gifts to other poets in subsequent years. Those presented were usually hand- decorated on the outer wrapper by Duncan, with a hand- written limitation statement. The wrappers of the present copy are virginal, and the colophon not executed or signed. In 1986, the bibliographer noted: "At this writing, approximately 35 copies have been awarded, and their distribution has been reserved for poets." Presumably, this copy, though once belonging to a poet, comes from the small balance of undistributed copies. In its full dress, one of Duncan&#39;s scarcest publications. BERTHOLF A4a.
