        Quelques Sonnets de Ronsard

      (Segonzac, Andre Dunoyer de); Ronsard, Pierre de. Quelques Sonnets de Ronsard. Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1955. With 51 original etchings by Segonzac. Copy #49 with a suite on Japon, numbered and signed by the artist. (Total edition 210: 35 copies with two suites; 40 copies as this with a suite on Japon; 125 regular copies; 15 hors commerce). Laid in is an original pen and ink drawing of a reclining girl in lingerie by Segonzac, inscribed "pour les gourments de Ronsand and signed A. Dunoyer de / Segonzac." Folio (10 1/2 x 13"; 25, 5 x 32 cm.) Bound in blue morocco with covers decorated in a renaissance style frame created entirely out of pointelle, from which sprigs of acanthus leaves sprout. Smooth spine ornamented in gilt and in pointelle. A simple yet exuberant binding. Mauve suede endpapers. According to Strachan, the classical tradition of book illustration reflected in the works of Rodin and Maillol is represented in Quelques' Sonnets, yet this "charming interpretation of the Renaissance poet" links tradition with innovation "with a free, sketch-like idiom" to the etchings. Segonzac, in "j'ai pense a illustrer les sonnets de Ronsard", comments that he chose the subject of Ronsard's poetry after completing the illustrations to the Georgiques of Virgil. For his edition of Ronsard, Segonzac wanted a subject of delicate sensibility, elegance without affection and restrained sensuality. Segonzac worked eight years on the Ronsard from 1948 till 1956. For this edition, he enlisted the master printer Jacques Fr?ut, who had printed the edition of Virgil's Georgiques. These etchings show on the whole a slightly more formalized style compared with those of the Georgiques. The text was printed in 24 pt Garamont Italique by L'imprimerie Nationale and the etchings printed by Jaques Frelaut on the presses of Roger Lacouriere. All the plates were engraved in 1954 and defaced after printing. Binding by Therese Moncey, with Fache as doreur. Moncey's beautiful bindings have won le grand prix de la reliure francaise in 1950 and succeeded in numerous exhibitions. She has always used the great gilders "doreurs"of the period such as Fache.

        Memoirs. Year of Decisions and Years of Trial and Hope

      Doubleday & Company, Inc. 1955 - Doubleday & Company, Inc. 1955 & 1956, Garden City, 1955. Hardcover. First Edition. Two volumes. A special and obviously limited edition of this book bound in full blue cloth with gilt-lettered black spine labels, rather than the black cloth of the regular and Kansas City editions, and also larger in size than those editions (6" x 9-1/2"). Both volumes in fine condition, publisher's slipcases in very good condition. This edition appears to have been reserved for the author's use and presented by the President to those close to him. Each book is INSCRIBED warmly and at great length (the longest Truman inscription in a book we have ever seen) and SIGNED by the author to Leslie L. Biffle, who served twice as Secretary of the U. S. Senate. Evidently he played a key role in securing the Vice President nomination for Harry S. Truman in 1944. After FDR died, Truman came to rely on Biffle for information regarding goings-on in the Senate. There was a dedicated phone line between the two men's desks. During one press conference, Truman declared: "They don't make them any better than Biffle. And you can quote me on that." When Biffle died in 1966, Senator John L. McClellan announced it on the floor of the US Senate, mourning the loss of a "true patriot and one of America's finest citizens." In addition each book is housed in its original slipcase, each of which the President has also INSCRIBED and SIGNED to Biffle. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Couverture imprimée en noir et jaune (rayures verticales). ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Publiée au milieu des années 50 par Eric Losfeld. Les illustrations sont de Jean Boullet. L'ouvrage se vendait 3.600 francs d'après Dutel. Ouvrage condamné pour la première fois le 24 octobre 1957. Référence : Dutel, 2002 ; Pia, 849 Madame de V. s'est ennuyée pendant trop longtemps aux côtés de monsieur de V., de 20 ans son aîné. Toutes ces années, elle ne dut qu'à son savoir-faire tout le plaisir qu'elle retira de la vie. Aussi, au décès de l'aïeul, la jeune femme à peine éclose aux choses de l'amour décide-t-elle de rattraper le temps perdu. Sa quête, loin d'être spirituelle, débute en 1917 dans les bras de Doudou, par l'apprentissage studieux des préceptes et des positions du "Kama Sutra". De ce jeune soldat noir, blessé au combat, madame de V. conserve le souvenir impérissable d'un membre tellement vigoureux qu'aucun autre homme après lui ne peut plus la combler. De désespoir, le corps tiraillé par le désir, madame de V. s'exile en terre africaine où, dans les ruelles sombres de Dakar, elle recherche sans ménager sa peine l'étalon qui saura la satisfaire. » (Présentation de la réédition chez Pocket, 2001) "Aussi le lendemain, après avoir refermé à clef la porte de la chambre, troussa-t-elle ses jupes sans dire un mot, offrant à l'homme une belle paire de fesses autour d'un mignon trou du cul, enduit auparavant de crème parfumée, car elle redoutait un peu la grosseur de cet instrument que les Noirs appellent curieusement un "zob" et les gens du commun un "paf". Elle n'attendit pas longtemps. Une boule chaude vint s'appliquer sur la raie de son cul et aidée par la crème et les soubresauts d'un ventre nerveux, pénétra en elle, comme une flèche de feu."

      Olympia Press 1955 - 2 vols., pp. 188 and 223. Original green stiff paper wrappers, lettered in black. Printed price of 900 Francs to rear panel of both volumes. Vol. I: 1cm chip to foot of front panel at spine, some wear to spine edges and ends, small pencilled marking to rear panel, about very good. Vol. II: Some wear to spine edges and ends, small closed tear to rear panel at top of spine, a little bumped and rubbed, about very good. First edition, first issue, with the original printed price of 900 Francs to the rear panel of both volumes. Lolita, one of the towering literary achievements of the twentieth century and Nabokov's best-known masterpiece, was turned down by every major American publishing house. It eventually found a home in Paris with Maurice Girodias's Olympia Press, an imprint far better known for low sleaze than high art. Nabokov was appalled by the company his book was forced to keep on the Olympia list, and he and Girodias conducted a bitter, litigious feud lasting years. During that time Lolita's reputation grew in direct inverse proportion to its availability. The novel was banned in the UK shortly after publication; the French authorities followed suit at the end of 1956. Lolita finally found an American publisher in 1958, whereupon a newspaper asked the great and the good for their opinions. Groucho Marx declared he wasn't going to read it for six years, until Lolita was eighteen. This Lolita is showing her age a little, and the chip to the front panel of Volume I either makes this set less desirable or more affordable, depending on your attitude to condition. The set conforms exactly to the bibliographical citation in Kearney (1.13.1) with the exception of the presence of a rear blank endpaper in Volume I which is not called for. It's possible that this is a variant, more likely that the endpaper was simply missed during collation. An expensive chip -- fine copies of this title command more than twice the price of this one -- but still a very good set. Kearney: 1.13 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        J.R.R. Tolkien Writes his Proofreader with a Lengthy Discussion of the Lord of the Rings, Including Criticism of Radio Broadcasts of his Work

      Headington, Oxford, England 1955 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Naomi Mitchison. Headington, Oxford, England, December 8, 1955. 4 pp on 2 leaves of wove paper with Pirie's/ Crown Bond watermark. 55?16 x 7&frac18; in. (13 1/2 x 18 cm). The first page is embossed "76 Sandfield Road/ Headington/ Oxford." With original autograph addressed envelope. In a letter peppered with references to Middle Earth and its inhabitants, an exhausted Tolkien takes his first lengthy holiday in four years-in Italy. He returns and writes to Naomi Mitchison, a fellow novelist and his proofreader, for failing to provide feedback for her novel, To the Chapel Perilous. Tolkien discusses the demands on his time, ranging from his teaching load, thesis advising, and publishing, to reading critical reviews. Tolkien's dissatisfaction with radio adaptations of Lord of the Rings occupies a prominent place: I think poorly of the broadcast adaptations. Except for a few details I think they are not well done. I thought that the dwarf (Gloin not Gimli, but I suppose Gimli will talk like his father.) was not too bad if a bit exaggerated. I do think of the "Dwarves" like Jews: at once native and alien in their habitations, speaking the language of the country, but with an accent due to their own private tongue. The balance of the letter discusses literary critics, reviews of Mitchison's book, and anachronisms in her latest offering as contrasted to Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. TranscriptYou really are most kind and generous. Thank you so much for your last letter. I feel that I should have written long ago, especially since I failed to make any kind of return in the matter of "To the Chapel Perilous." But perhaps you will understand I felt exhausted, since in addition to the "Lord of the Rings" I had only just concluded a two-year term of administrative office in college on top of professing, and the advance copy came just as I was about to go off for the first holiday since 1951 of more than two or three days. Reading it - I went to Italy - was easy * and delightful; but I seemed too dried up to say anything. And when I came back the shadow of one of those things one idiotically lets oneself in for when they are distant fell on me. [Written at bottom and continuing up left margin]: *I mean for the will; my mind found it difficult. You move in the complicated world with an ease that helps me to understand why people find my much simpler and more simple-minded world bewildering. I cling to Lienaro whom I liked and found intelligible. I had to deliver the opening lecture of the newly-founded O'Donnell Lectures in Celtic Studies-already overdue: and I composed it with 'all the woe in the world,', as the Gawain-poet says of the wretched fox with the hounds on his tail. All the more woe, since I am the merest amateur in such matters, and Celtic scholars are critical and litigious; and more so since I was smitten with laryngitis. I think poorly of the broadcast [radio] adaptations. Except for a few details I think they are not well done, even granted the script and the legitimacy of the enterprise (which I do not grant). But they took some trouble with the names. I thought that the dwarf (Gloin not Gimli, but I suppose Gimli will talk like his father - apparently someone's idea of a German) was not too bad if a bit exaggerated. I do think of the "Dwarves" like Jews: at once native and alien in their habitations, speaking the language of the country, but with an accent due to their own private tongue. I have, of course, a good many letters: most of them intelligent and critical, and largely inspired by annoyance with the critics. Edwin Muir produced quite a batch, from people who seemed to think I should be upset at his tone. But I got as much good from him, I suppose, as was possible - unless he was prepared to read the book with attention. He showed by his remarks on Lrien that had not. But I do not feel disposed to blame . (See website for full description)
