        L'espèce humaine

      Gallimard 1957 - - Gallimard, Paris 1957, 14x20,5cm, broché. - Edition en partie originale, car revue et corrigée, pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Rare et précieux envoi autographe signé de Robert Antelme à Claude Gallimard. Dos et plats légèrement et marginalement insolés. "Il n'y a pas d'espèces humaines, il y a une espèce humaine. C'est parce que nous sommes des hommes comme eux que les SS seront en définitive impuissants devant nous.". Cet ouvrage fondamental sur l'expérience des Camps nazis parut initialement en 1947. Ce fut la troisième et derniere publication de l'éphémère maison d'édition fondée par Marguerite Duras et Robert Antelme, son mari de 1940 à 1946. Passé inaperçu lors de cette première parution confidentielle, seuls quelques exemplaires furent vendus, il fut remis en vente l'année suivante sous de nouvelles couvertures par Robert Marin, l'ouvrage souffrira de la concurence des nombreux écrits sur le sujet parus immédiatement après guerre. Pourtant, comme le relate F. Lebelley : "à une époque où les récits abondent, la puissance particulière de ce livre-là, d'une sobriété première, bouleverse tel un texte fondateur. Livre d'écrivain aussi qui a pris, reconnaît Duras, "le large de la littérature". Robert Antelme n'en écrira jamais d'autre. Malgré les éloges et les honneurs, L'Espèce humaine restera l'oeuvre unique d'une vie." (in Duras, ou le poids d'une plume.) Grâce à l'intervention d'Albert Camus, le livre reparaît dix ans plus tard, en 1957 chez Gallimard et connaît alors une diffusion plus large. Dès lors, ce livre s'inscrit dans l'histoire littéraire comme un des plus importants écrits affrontant la douloureuse mais nécessaire réflexion sur les camps de concentration et la condition humaine. C'est à sa suite que des écrivains tel que son ami Jorge Semprun pourront commencer une nouvelle approche de l'impossible écriture des camps. Dès 1947, Antelme annonçait dans son avant-propos « nous revenions juste, nous ramenions avec nous notre mémoire, notre expérience toute vivante et nous éprouvions un désir frénétique de la dire telle quelle. Et, dès les premiers jours cependant, il nous paraissait impossible de combler la distance que nous découvrions entre le langage dont nous disposions et cette expérience [.] Comment nous résigner à ne pas tenter d'expliquer comment nous en étions venus là ? Nous y étions encore. Et cependant c'était impossible. A peine commencions-nous à raconter, que nous suffoquions. A nous-mêmes, ce que nous avions à dire commençait alors à nous paraître inimaginable. » Peu après cette réédition chez Gallimard, ce témoignage reçu son plus bel hommage sous la plume de Maurice Blanchot : « Quand l'homme en est réduit à l'extrême dénuement du besoin, quand il devient "celui qui mange des épluchures", l'on s'aperçoit qu'il est réduit à lui-même, et l'homme se découvre comme celui qui n'a besoin de rien d'autre que le besoin pour, niant ce qui le nie, maintenir le rapport humain dans sa primauté. Il faut ajouter que le besoin alors change, qu'il se radicalise au sens propre, qu'il n'est plus qu'un besoin aride, sans jouissance, sans contenu, qu'il est rapport nu à la vie nue et que le pain que l'on mange répond immédiatement à l'exigence du besoin, de même que le besoin est immédiatement le besoin de vivre. » (Maurice Blanchot, L'indestructible, in La Nrf n°112, 1962 repris dans L'Entretien infini) Les envois de Antelme sont d'une insigne rareté, à fortiori à son éditeur qui, après 10 ans d'oubli, permettra la consécration de cet ouvrage fondamental. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition, first for some parts, as corrected and reviewed, of which there were no large paper copies, one advance (service de presse) copy.

        The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1957. A Conversation Piece. Octavo. Original red cloth titled in gilt to the spine, bottom and fore edges uncut. A touch of fading to the spine. A near fine copy. First edition, large paper issue. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his friend and biographer Christopher Sykes, "Christopher with love. Look out. It might be you next. Evelyn" on the front free endpaper. Sykes first met Waugh in 1929 shortly after the collapse of Waugh's first marriage, and the pair became good friends. According to Waugh's son Auberon, he was chosen to be the author's official biographer "because he was the only one of Waugh's obituarists who caught something of the gaiety as well as the recklessness of the man" (ODNB), though his book, published in 1975, was inhibited by a respect for Waugh's widow "a decline in energy" (idem), and perhaps a delayed feeling of resentment at his friend's success.

        Autograph Letter on her Calling Card, mentioning Traviata

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph note to an unidentified recipient on both sides of her printed visiting card. Ca. 47 x 84 mm., with "Maria Meneghini Callas" printed to recto. One corner very slightly creased. "Dear friend â?? I am terribly sorry but Saturday is taken with my rehearsal of Traviata. Please call me and we will see each other if possible after the 6th. Thank you and best regards."<br><br><br />Maria Callas was the most famous and also the most glamorous opera singer of her time. Her fame was enhanced by her attractive physique, and her early death turned her into an almost mythical figure. Initially performing dramatic roles including most of Wagner's soprano parts, she later focused on the Italian belcanto repertory. "Of Callas's artistic pre-eminence there can be no doubt. Among her contemporaries she had the deepest comprehension of the Classical Italian style, the most musical instincts and the most intelligent approach. There was authority in all that she did on the stage and in every phrase that she uttered. Her voice, especially during the early 1950s, was in itself an impressive instrument, with its penetrating individual quality, its rich variety of colour and its great agility in florid music." (Grove Music Online)<br><br><br />Callas sang Violetta in La Traviata at the Metropolitan Opera on February 6, 1957.

        CAT IN THE HAT

      - SEUSS,DR. THE CAT IN THE HAT. NY: Random Hse. (1957). 8vo, flat paper over boards (not glazed paper), 61p., small old offset marks on endpapers and name erased from free endpaper else near fine in VG dust wrapper that has some fraying at spine ends. 1st edition of Seuss's first reader (correct binding paper) in dust wrapper with price. Illustrated in bright color throughout. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. In addition to becoming a household name, the Cat In The Hat is extremely important in the history of education and children's literature. At the same time that it was amusing, it was bringing the basic concepts of reading to tens of thousands of little children who were learning without being "taught". It was a marked departure from the boring Dick and Jane type reader. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. Teachers began to use this book in their classrooms and it was not long before the Cat In The Hat became an American icon. First editions of this title are extremely scarce.

        Kay Thompson's Eloise In Paris Drawings by Hilary Knight - SIGNED BY THOMPSON AND KNIGHT

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1957. First edition (2nd printing). Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A rare double signed copy of Thompson's second Eloise book, with whimsical illustrations by Hilary Knight. Slim quarto, original illustrated red cloth.  Signed by the author on the title page "Kay Thompson" and some years later, by the illustrator Hilary Knight, who adds above in a darker black ink "Hilary Knight / 2000." Wear to ends of spinein the original dust jacket, with small losses to the spine ends and rear upper edge.  A very good copy of a classic title rarely found signed by both of the creators.This second Eloise book details the comic adventures of the young heroine on a trip to the French capitol, accompanied by her nanny, her faithful pug Weenie, and her turtle Skipperdee. <br style="">Maurice Sendak called Eloise a "brazen, loose-limbed little monster" and anyone who has been introduced to the eccentric 6-year-old who spends her days at large in New York's Plaza Hotel pouring water down the mail chute and managing her self-imposed responsibilities can't help but be fascinated. "Eloise's birth was unexpected. At rehearsals of her act with the Williams Brothers, Thompson [who was a professional singer] prized punctuality. Then one day she was late. In a high, childish voice that she had never used before, she made her apology. One of her co-workers said, 'Who are you, little girl?' Thompson replied, 'I am Eloise. I am six.' The others joined in the game, each assuming a juvenile identity, and it became a regular rehearsal pastime" (New York Times). That pastime became a book, with three more to follow in Thompson's lifetime. "Eloise became an alternative persona for Kay Thompson, much as the dummy Charlie McCarthy was for Edgar Bergen? [allowing] Thompson to express contrarian thoughts and ideas. Eloise took form as a lonely and whimsical child who created her own world" (Marie Brenner).<br style=""><br style="">

O volume 1º inclui um mapa desdobrável extratexto comparando as teses defendidas nas diversas obras que tinham sido publicadas até ao momento. 'A questão dos painéis', como é conhecida a vasta polémica que se desenrola desde a descoberta em S. Vicente de Fora em 1883, de um excepcional obra de pintura portuguesa do século XV, apaixona os especialistas e a opinião pública até aos nossos dias, ganhando ainda mais ímpeto com o recurso aos modernos meios de comunicação, como a internet. Neste trabalho o autor, defende a tese que o tema da célebre obra prima está relacionado com o Infante D. Pedro, e com o pedido do seu corpo ser inumado no Mosteiro da Batalha, reparando assim o mal que lhe tinha sido feito, ao ser sepultado sem os cuidados e honras devidos, depois da sua morte na Batalha de Alfarrobeira. Defende assim que a figura representada é D. Jaime, filho de D. Pedro, e que a obra se destinava à capela em Florença onde está sepultado. O autor recorrendo a uma grande erudição, apresenta, pela primeira, vez uma proposta de decifração do texto, que se vê num livro segurado pelo judeu no painel da relíquia, defendendo que está escrito em latim. Importante contributo para o estudo desta célebre questão, que pela sua complexidade ganha sempre com as possibilidades abertas por cada uma das novas abordagens que todas trazem algo de positivo.

        Il Dottor Zivago; [with:] Doctor Zhivago [in Cyrillic].

      Milan: Feltrinelli Editore,, 1957 & [1959]. 2 volumes, octavo. Original pale green boards, titles to spines and front boards in black. With the dust jackets. Il Dottor Zivago with scarce yellow wraparound band, torn into two pieces and loosely inserted. An excellent, bright set. Hinges of Il Dottor Zivago split but holding (not affecting endpapers but gauze visible at gutter of title page and final page of text); in the jacket with laminate lifting slightly; front hinge of Russian edition split but holding (not affecting front endpaper but gauze visible at gutter of title page); in the bright jacket with some nicks and rubbing to spine ends. The first edition of Pasternak's masterpiece and the third edition in Russian (the first published by Feltrinelli). Doctor Zhivago was deemed unfit for publication within the Soviet Union due to certain passages that were perceived as anti-Soviet. It was therefore first published in Italian by Feltrinelli in 1957 after Pasternak signed a contract with him on 30 June 1956, granting the Italian publisher the copyright for translation. The history of the book's publication in Russian is somewhat tangled: the first edition in Russian was printed by the Dutch publisher Mouton without Feltrinelli's permission, as part of a covert CIA publishing and propaganda program. In January 1958 the CIA accepted through British Intelligence microfilm copies of the Russian manuscript which Feltrinelli had received from Pasternak; the book was ready for distribution by early September 1958. Feltrinelli, with Pasternak's support, had discussed the publication of a Russian edition in 1957 in collaboration with Mouton, but had not signed a contract. Unaware of the CIA's involvement, Feltrinelli saw Mouton's publication as outright fraud and considered legal action, though he later settled. A planned US edition in Russian was to be likewise published without acknowledgement of Feltrinelli's copyright. However, after the legal furore surrounding the publication of the Dutch edition, that decision was reversed, and the US edition, published in Michigan, was subsequently published with Feltrinelli's full consent and collaboration. Feltrinelli intended to publish his Russian edition concurrently with the US publication, but due to printing delays his book was not published in Italy until four months after it appeared in the US. The book earned Pasternak the Nobel Prize for literature. The award was offered in mid-October 1958, but before the end of the month, under intense pressure from the Soviet authorities, Pasternak was forced to reject it.

        DANDELION WINE

      Garden City: Doubleday, 1957. Canary yellow cloth. Very, very faint darkening along endsheet gutters, otherwise a fine copy in near fine dust jacket with a hint of tanning to spine and edges, and minor dust soiling to the lower panel. First edition of this central work in the Bradbury canon, and in many ways, a work which is in a class by itself for its generation. "A bucolic evocation of Bradbury's youth through rose-colored glasses. Though not strictly fantastic, this poetic blend of nostalgia and ever-so- slightly macabre happenings defines the author's view of the past as a country of the bizarre and the wonderful, and is central to Bradbury's fantasy world" - Barron. BARRON 4A-44. PRINGLE FANTASY 100, 19.
