      Les Editions du Sagittaire, Paris 1953 - Edition originale. Jaquette illustrée par Joan MIRO; planches hors texte. Exemplaire sur bouffant de l'édition portant sur le faux titre un ENVOI autographe signé de Breton "A ma chère Marie Cuttoli en toute affection". ¤¤¤¤¤¤ Marie Bordes est née en 1879. Elle épousa à Constantine le Sénateur Paul Cuttoli, et partage sa vie entre le France et l'Algérie. En décembre 1926, elle ouvre rue Vignon La Maison Myrbor qui expose des tapis qu'elle fait fabriquer à Sétif d'après Picasso, Léger, Arp, Klee. A partir de 1930, elle fonde la Galerie Vignon qu'elle loue un temps à Jeanne Bucher pour y exposer des sculptures de Jacques Lipchitz. Les deux femmes devinrent amies et s'associèrent en décembre 1935 pour l'ouverture boulevard du Montparnasse de la galerie Bucher Myrbor. Marie Cuttoli partageait également sa vie avec le professeur Henri Laugier qui, fort de ses appuis politiques, exerça une action déterminante pour le développement des sciences et des arts. Ensemble ils fréquentaient les artistes et les écrivains surréalistes dont Man Ray, Nush et Paul Eluard, André Breton. En 1940, à la déclaration de guerre, c'est dans le midi chez Marie Cuttoli que Aube et Jacqueline Breton trouvèrent refuge. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A WRITER'S DIARY. Being Extracts From The Diary Of Virginia Woolf. With Wrap-Around-band.

      The Hogarth Press, London 1953 - Woolf, Virginia. A WRITER'S DIARY. First Edition. 8vo., 312pp. Edited, with a preface by Leonard Woolf. A fine copy in orange cloth, gilt titles to the spine, in like fine dustwrapper with the very uncommon wrap-around-band. Revealing glimpses of Virginia Woolf & essential for an understanding of her writing methods & how her thought process influenced her life & relationships. It was not until Woolf's full Diaries were published that they were recognized, with her letters as companion, as her literary masterpieces. Virginia Woolf kept her diaries from 1915 until her death in 1941. Her husband, Leonard Woolf, notes in his preface that her "diary gives for 27 years a consecutive record of what she did, of the people whom she saw and particularly of what she thought about those people, about herself, about life, and about the books she was writing or hoped to write." Leonard Woolf has here excerpted his wife's diaries from 1918 through 1941, including every reference his wife's diaries made to her own writing. The resulting book "throws light upon Virginia Woolf's intentions, objects, and methods as a writer. It gives an unusual psychological picture of artistic production from within."

        Typed letter signed to his editor J. Derek Grimsdick ("J.D.") concerning the Berlin broadcasts

      New York: 1000 Park Avenue, 28 March, 1953. 2 pages, American letter, lightweight Saxon Onion Skin paper, creased where folded twice for posting, typed on one side only. Custom red morocco-backed slipcase and chemise. One erasure and 9 words added in blue ink in Wodehouse&#39;s autograph, signed with his initials. A few short closed tears and small chips not affecting text, the condition overall good. Highly important typed letter, with autograph corrections and signed by him with initials, to his English editor, J. Derek Grimsdick of Herbert Jenkins, concerning Wodehouse&#39;s notorious wartime broadcasts. In spring 1953 Wodehouse was in New York finishing off two volumes of memoirs simultaneously. The first - Bring On the Girls!, written in collaboration with Guy Bolton - avoided controversy by dealing with Wodehouse&#39;s successful pre-war career in American musical theatre, but the second, Performing Flea, subtitled "A Self-Portrait in Letters", would be much more closely examined. For those in the know, the title itself recalled controversy: it dated from the time of the Berlin broadcasts when, in a letter to the Daily Telegraph (8 July 1941), Sean O&#39;Casey had referred to Wodehouse as English literature&#39;s performing flea. Wodehouse&#39;s letter to Grimsdick shows how the Berlin broadcasts still haunted him over a decade later. Immediately after the liberation of Paris in 1944, MI5 had sent Major E. J. P. Cussen, later a judge, to interrogate Wodehouse and examine his actions. Unfortunately for its subject, Cussen&#39;s report, which fully exonerated Wodehouse from charges of treason, was never made public in Wodehouse&#39;s lifetime. But in 1953 Cussen still dogged Wodehouse. The letter shows exactly that incompatibility between the roles of comedian and historian which so damaged Wodehouse&#39;s attempts to rehabilitate his reputation. Wodehouse had proposed to include transcripts of his Berlin talks in the book in order to demonstrate their essential innocence, but the letter reveals that Cussen had read the book at draft stage and confronted the publisher with the inescapable fact that Wodehouse had not supplied accurate transcripts of the original broadcasts. Wodehouse flounders to explain this to his editor: "I certainly agree with you that we ought to print the broadcasts exactly as they were spoken ..." But then he proceeds to outline a number of exceptions to this general rule that must have exasperated his editor: "What happened was that when I wrote the Camp book, I elaborated the broadcasts and made them separate chapters. That is to say, I added funny material wherever I saw an opportunity. An instance of this is in the first broadcast, where what I actually said >on the radio< was &#39;Algy the human sunbeam said we should be put in villas and >asked to< give our parole and then be allowed to go where we liked&#39; (or something like that), and I added >in the letter book< [i.e. the manuscript of Performing Flea] something like &#39;"Villas, Algy? With honeysuckle climbing over the porch?" Well he was not quite sure about that. There might or might not be honeysuckle ...&#39; etc. You see what I mean? The stuff is the same, but I added comic material. It was very difficult, when I came to work on the Letter book [Performing Flea], to remember what I had actually said and what I had added. I suppose it is safest to be absolutely accurate, though it does seem a pity to cut out funny stuff. I can&#39;t make out from your letter what Cussen actually turned up with? Had he a typed script in addition to the script I gave him in Paris? The latter is accurate, it being my own typing." Wodehouse goes on at some length to discuss another anecdote in which for comic effect he had given Algy a morning greeting purloined from a Jeeves novel, suggesting to Grimsdick that "It all turns on whether you think that the authorities, reading this passage &#133; will publish a manifesto in all their papers saying &#39;It&#39;s a lie! Algy did not say "The lark&#39;s on the wing etc. &#133;"&#39; " Wodehouse ends by deferring to Grimsdick: "Use your own judgment about this - I will agree to whatever you decide - but, as I said before, it does seem a pity to sacrifice laugh lines which don&#39;t alter the sense." At the end of the letter, personal irritation breaks through: "Didn&#39;t you think Cussen was a priceless ass? But you ought to have seen him in uniform with his little wooden stick!" And the triumphant coda: "Fox Twentieth Century very interested in BRING ON THE GIRLS." The first edition of Performing Flea was published in London by Herbert Jenkins on 9 October 1953, with the disputed transcripts of the Berlin broadcasts omitted from the book.

        The Desperate Hours (Author's Original Typescript, with numerous corrections)

      Random House, New York 1953 - Joseph Hayes' original typed manuscript for his most famous novel, "The Desperate Hours," with numerous authorial typeovers and editorial corrections. Stamps from the James Brown Agency (author's agent), date stamp of Sept 15 1953 and hand notation "Random House New York" to the title page. The book was published by Random House in 1954, and was so popular upon its release that the author rewrote it as both a play and a movie screenplay within a year of publication. Basis for the classic 1955 film noir directed by William Wyler and starring Humphrey Bogart and Arthur Kennedy, a story of home invasion by a group of ruthless prison escapees, that was in some ways the pinnacle of American urban paranoia in the 1950s. Housed in Hayes' original brown file folder, with his personal return label affixed (indicating a home address in Sarasota, Florida), marked in the author's hand: "ORIGINAL MANUSCIPT [sic] 'THE DESP. HRS' AS SUBMITTED TO RANDOM HOUSE."Unbound pages, Very Good condition overall, with title page and last page of text in lesser condition due to bearing most of the wear, but complete with no missing leaves. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
