        5 LAS à sa femme Zette. Pékin, 22 septembre - 30 octobre 1955.

      1955. 6 pages in-8 sur papier de riz "à lettre", toutes les env. sont cons. Très intéressante correspondance de Leiris avec sa femme lors de son voyage dans le cadre des amitiés franco-chinoises en 1955, contrepoint au Journal de Chine, qui sera publié en 1994. I: "Ce papier à lettre - trouvé sur la table de la chambre que je partage avec Lurçat - te donnera une idée de la gentillesse de nos hôtes! A Moscou, nous avons vu Le Lac des Cygnes au Bolchoï, par une danseuse telle que je n'en ai jamais vue, devant Boulganine et Krouchtchev recevant le ménage Grotewohl. En Sibérie, l'avion s'arrêtait à des guest-houses genre isba, auberges de campagne qui faisaient penser au troisième tableau de Boris Godounov. [...] Dorénavant, il faudra que nous nous arrangions pour prendre nos habitudes dans l'Est : c'est sans commune mesure avec le reste [...]" (22 sept.). - II: "[...] Hier, dîner d'une trentaine de plats, à nous offert dans un restaurant réputé de Pékin par le vice-ministre aux Relations Culturelles! Le plus étonnant en Chine c'est, décidément, qu'on y est absolument pas dépaysé, en dépit de tout l'exotisme du décor. Cela tient au fait qu'avec les gens les rapports sont parfaitement normaux et non pas ce qu'ils sont dans les pays africains ou antillais. Cet après-midi nous allons visiter la Cité Interdite, qui est la plus belle partie de la ville, - le reste valant surtout pour le pittoresque [...]" (26 sept.). - III: "Me voilà depuis ce matin en Mandchourie et cela change beaucoup, car il fait assez froid! [...] A la différence de Pékin, cette région-ci fait un peu bout de monde et c'est assez étonnant de voir là-dedans des constructions industrielles. Sartre et le Castor, avec qui j'ai déjeuné ces jours derniers, partent demain pour Shanghaï : pour des raisons d'organisation et d'hébergement, on s'arrange toujours pour que les divers invités ne soient pas tous ensemble au même endroit de sorte que ce n'est pas très commode de se voir si l'on ne fait pas partie d'une même délégation [...]" (5 octobre). - IV: "[...] Ce matin , avec deux de mes collègues, nous sommes allés au local de travail de la Troupe n°3 de l'Opéra de Pékin et l'accueil a été bouleversant : acclamations par toute la troupe, plus les machinistes, etc. [...] formant une double haie d'honneur sur notre passage, démonstrations d'entraînement devant nous, splendide spectacle sur scène, remise de cadeaux et de bouquets de fleurs, etc. On nous a même fait revêtir des costumes d'acteurs chinois et affublés de grandes barbes pour nous photographier! Tout ce qu'on voit ici est suffoquant et la difficulté sera, au retour, de le faire saisir à ceux qui, ne l'ayant pas vu, nous regarderons comme des fous[...]" (21 octobre). - V: "[...] A mesure que la fête de demain approche, c'est de plus en plus magnifique : une foule énorme a dû passer dehors une bonne partie au moins de cette dernière nuit, à regarder les groupes de jeunesse s'entraîner à la danse. Nous avons eu hier soir un banquet d'environ 2.000 couverts présidé par Chou En-lai, avec toasts portés à de nombreuses reprises tandis que l'orchestre jouait alternativement des airs chinois et des airs européens (dont une valse viennoise et l'Ouverture de Carmen). J'ai pu déjeuner avec Sartre et le Castor et il est probable que nous serons en même temps à Shanghaï. Mais les programmes sont très minutés et le fait que, pour des raisons d'ailleurs strictement linguistiques, on est sous la dépendance des interprètes empêche quelque peu de se voir [...]".

Impressions 4,2,1 of the three books. 1955, 1955, 1955, likely purchased as a set as the wear and aging is fairly uniform, with small onwers name stamp to all three books ffep. Loved and cherished by one owner. This is the likely first true set of the three books you could buy at one time and place. It was never possible to purchase a first edition set i.e. the 1st impression of each book, in a shop. Although a 3,2,1 impression set is possible, unlikely due to wide distribution. These early impressions are increasingly hard to find without much more wear and tear. All three jackets are similar condition, fading to spine and overall color, slight tattering and paper loss to spine ends, but no serious rips or tears. TT has a 3rd impression jacket. Jacket impressions were interchanged often at A & U. Slight lean to all three books, bindings tight. As nice an early set as you will find without spending much more. Please ask for additional photos as this will show the condition better than a description. The box is worse for wear, but not seriously damaged. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED, ON FABER HEADED PAPER, loosely inserted into a copy of Eliot's THE COCKTAIL PARTY

      A single sheet of Faber's letterhead, addressed to The Hon. Justice Vaisey, which is loosely inserted into a first edition, second issue of The Cocktail Party, 167 pp. + [4] pp., complete in dust wrapper, with cut original Eliot signature pasted on to title page. The letter is addressed to The Hon. Justice Vaisey, 11 Ashley Gardens, Westminster, London S.W.1. expressing regret at Vaisey's absence from a meeting at the Garrick Club. Judging from the contents of the letter, this was a group that met regularly, but we have not been able to find information of the nature of this group, which included T. S. Eliot, Vaisey, Robin Scott and a person referred to as Sangster. My dear Vaisey, I found your note awaiting me at the Garrick last night, and am writing to say that the members all expressed regret at your absence and your ill-ness. I hope that you are on a Rapid road to re-covery. The only absentees were yourself, and Robin Scott, whose absence remains unexplained. We had, I think, a very satisfactory discussion. // I look forward in the hope of seeing you at our next meeting, which has been fixed for February 21st, a Tuesday, and Sangster is to be the Host.// yours ever, [signed] T.S. Eliot

        Facts are Facts

      Benjamin H. Freedman, New York 1955 - [2], 62 pages. Facsimile reproduction of letter addressed to Dr. David Goldstein, LL.D., by Benjamin H. Freedman, dated October 10, 1954. Freedman, a Jew turned Catholic, presents carefully researched and extensively referenced arguments, including why Jesus was not a Jew. His arguments lean heavily upon the history of the Chazars (Khazars) and cited Talmudic passages. Copy of detailed two-page typescript letter from Conde McGinley, Editor of the semi-monthly publication Common Sense, laid-in. McGinley encourages readers to order more copies of this work to help spread its message and to help fund his legal defense against Rabbi Joachim Prinz (who had accused Common Sense of libel for characterizing his as a "Red Rabbi"). Also laid-in is a copy of a one-page typescript page imploring readers to get copies of this book into the hands of half-a-million American community leaders. Light wear to book. Underlining and marginal lines in colored pencil on seven pages, inside back cover, and on first page of McGinley letter. Seven years after this letter was written, Freedman gave a shocking speech (audio available online) in which he linked the signing of the Balfour Declaration with America's entry into WWI. A sound vintage copy of this profound work. (Singerman 928) [Attributes: Soft Cover]
