        Autograph letter signed.

      Boat House, Laughharne, Carmarhenshire, 15. VII. 1953. - 8vo. ¾ p. "Dear Leslie Collier, Apologies. I was in America when you came to Carmarthen, that couldn't be helped. But I've been back a month now, and I haven't written to say how sorry I was to have missed you and how I hope, whenever you're next in this part, you'll come along and have drinks. No letters were forwarded when I was away, so unfortunately, I couldn't let you know; but I could have written much sooner than this. My only excuse is that I have been busy about the country ever since I returned; and that's a poor excuse, I know. My wife also wants to apologise for not having seen you when you were down. Anyway, I shall look forward. Sincerely yours, Dylan Thomas". - A few light stains, and some mounting remnants on the verso, otherwise very fine. From the collection of Diana Herzog.

        Celui qui ne m'accompagnait pas

      Gallimard, 1953. - Gallimard, Paris 1953, 12x19cm, broché. - Prima edizione, una copia del servizio stampa. Molto prezioso ed emozionante autografo firmato e datato dall'autore a sua madre e sua sorella: "Per te, carissima mamma / e per te, cara Marg / questa storia che prima raccontarvi il mio affetto a tutti la mia gratitudine. " Marguerite Blanchot, celebre organista Cattedrale di Chalon, è rimasto tutta la sua vita nella casa di famiglia con la madre e la zia. "E diventerà gradualmente, per la famiglia, come la memoria delle origini." Molto vicino a Maurice, che corrispondeva regolarmente con lo scrittore che lo riflette un grande riconoscimento per la sua dedizione alla loro madre impotente. Se intenso affetto Blanchot per sua madre e sua sorella brilla in dediche di essa, non sappiamo quasi nulla delle loro relazioni. Nel solo saggio biografico su Blanchot, Christophe Bident rivela, però: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot adorato fratello molto orgoglioso di lui, (...) che annette grande importanza alle sue idee politiche (...) Ha letto un sacco (.... .) hanno telefonato corrispondeva. Una distanza, hanno condiviso la stessa autorità naturale, la stessa preoccupazione di discrezione ". Blanchot lo affronta infatti molti libri dalla sua biblioteca, ora con il suo continuo legame intellettuale. Come la passione di Blanchot per la madre, è la volta del suo lavoro che scopriamo i migliori esempi: "Forse il potere della figura materna che prende in prestito la sua luminosità alla stessa potenza fascinazione, e si potrebbe dire che se la madre porta questa affascinante attrazione è come appare quando il bambino vive interamente sotto lo sguardo di fascino, si concentra in sé tutti i poteri di incanto ". Coltivare assoluta discrezione, Blanchot ha spinto l'arte di cancellare nelle sue dediche manoscritte generalmente brevi e quasi sempre scritte su schede allegate ai libri rari offrì i suoi amici più stretti. Al contrario, in questi preziosi elementi a sua madre e sua sorella, Blanchot offre in tutta la sua fragilità e rivela un'intimità finora sconosciuta. Copia completa del suo bel rimorchio. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Très précieux et émouvant envoi autographe daté et signé de Maurice Blanchot à sa mère et à sa soeur : "Pour toi, bien chère maman / et pour toi, chère Marg / ce récit qui voudrait d'abord vous parler de mon affection avec toute ma reconnaissance."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 oeuvre 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'on pourrait dire que si la Mère exerce cet attrait fascinant, c'est qu'apparaissant quand l'enfant vit tout entier sous le regard de la fascination, elle concentre en elle tous les pouvoirs de l'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 soeur, Blanchot s'offre dans toute sa fragilité et dévoile une intimité jusqu'alors inconnue. Agréable exemplaire complet de sa bande annonce.

Map frontispiece and 24 other maps, 9 of them folding in pocket at rear. Recent book label of Shamus Wade, "Toy soldier dealer who pioneered the market for little lead gunners, Gurkhas and guards" (Telegraph obituary 7 September 2014) to front pastedown.

First edition, uncommon: Copac traces the Imperial War Museum and London Library copies only; OCLC adds New York Public Library and Colgate University, NY. "The Regt. had nine Infantry Bns and the MG Bn in the field, plus various training and administrative units. The task of recording their travels and battles in a coherent narrative manner could not have been easy. The author overcame most of the pitfalls by writing a strictly chronological history of the entire Regt but with numerous margins notes to clarify what each Bn was doing, where, and at what precise dates. The result is a massively factual compilation which is reasonably easy to follow and which deals with the Regt's services in almost ever theatre of war between 1939 and 1945" (Perkins). Birdwood (1897-1987), sometime member of the the Indian Observer Corps, finished the war as lieutenant-colonel in the 11th Sikh Regiment.

        Fahrenheit 451 (The "Asbestos" Edition)

      New York: Ballantine Books, 1953. Hardcover. Very Good +. Joe Mugnaini. #27 OF 200 COPIES ISSUED IN THIS, THE "ASBESTOS" BINDING, WHICH REPRESENTS THE TRUE 1ST INCARNATION OF "FAHRENHEIT 451". EACH OF THE 200 COPIES IS SIGNED BY RAY BRADBURY AT THE LIMITATION AND EACH IS "BOUND IN JOHN-MANVILLE QUINTERRA, AN ASBESTOS MATERIAL WITH EXCEPTIONAL RESISTANCE TO PYROLYSIS". This copy does show some wear to the boards. There's the customary soiling (almost impossible to avoid on this title) along the panels and there's also light staining to the bottom-edges (fairly innocuous at the front panel and pronounced along the rear panel). Tasteful bookplate as well to the front pastedown and very light wear to the spine crown and the front upper tip. Still though, solid and presentable. The binding is very strong and, except for the bookplate, the book is very clean internally, with no writing or markings of any kind. Octavo, illustrated by Joe Mugnaini.

        Package Festival (Original poster brochure, 1953)

      New York: John Cage, 1953. Poster brochure advertising a festival concept, developed by John Cage and David Tudor, designed to feature recitals, readings, dance classes, lectures, and panel discussions. Composers, musicians, poets, and thinkers on board for the festival of "experimental" works included Cage, Tudor, Merce Cunningham, and Mary Caroline Richards. Rather than being a poster for a particular planned event, this "brochure" was designed to advertise the concept of such a thing to colleges and universities. It was 1953, and Cage was meeting with a wall of rejections for grants, fellowships, and even work in animated films or as a writer for magazines. The Package Festival was as experimental as any of the composers work, literally an idea that Cage hoped would offer not only himself, but the growing number of contemporaries whom we would ultimately make famous on an international scale. In his biography of Cage, Kenneth Silverman notes: "The festival offered a dance program by Cunningham, a recital of contemporary music by Tudor, and a lecture on "Artaud and New Theatre"--three programs a day for three days. Each event had its own price tag, from $750 for the dance down to $100 for the lecture. But if a client bought more than one event a discount began to operate, making the discounted cost fvo the entire three day festival $1250. ...the Package Festival found no sponsors at the time...[and] Cage left Stony Point to concertize and lecture for two months abroad." 17.5 x 18.5 inches. (44.5 x 47 cm), 8.75 x 9.25 inches (22.25 x 23.5 cm) folded. Brown newsprint stock with offset printing in black. Near Fine. Silverman, p. 123.
