        The Town

      New York: Random House, 1957 First edition, limited issue of 450 numbered copies. Signed by Faulkner on the limitation page. Publisher's tan cloth, lettered in gilt, tan marbled endpapers; in the original acetate dust jacket. Book about fine, with a former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, bookseller's plate to the rear pastedown, else bright and fresh; dust jacket with closed tears to the panels, some creasing to the rear panel, minor chip and a short closed tear to the spine head. Overall, a near fine and very pleasing copy. Petersen A47.1a. The Town is the second novel in Faulkner's trilogy featuring the Snopes family, "who took root…and proliferated… until they out-maneuvered and overpowered a society and culture that had little defense against their invincible rapacity." The Town tells the story of Flem Snopes' rise to power in Jefferson, the seat of fictional Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi. Faulkner, a Mississippi native, based the fictional town of Jefferson on his real experiences in Oxford; The Town and the rest of the Snopes trilogy embody the cultural pathology of the New South after the Civil War. Like the other books in the series, The Hamlet (1940) and The Mansion (1959), The Town can be read in isolation but is richer in meaning when considered as part of the whole series.. Signed by Author. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Situation de la psychanalyse et formation du psychanalyste en 1956.

      (Vendome), Presses Universitaires de France, (1957). 8vo. In the original stapled printed wrappers. Offprint from "Les Études Philosophiques", October-December, 1956. Has been bended vertically and has some minor miscolouring to extremities, otherwise a very fine and clean copy. Pp. 567-584.. Scarce off-print issue of Lacan famous work on psychoanalysis in which Lacan revived Freudian psychoanalysis. The present publication marks a major turning point in Lacanian and French psychoanalysis in general with the split between Lacan and The International Psycho-Analytical Association (IPA) and the later founding of Lacan's own 'SCHOOL' in 1964.Lacan's famous "return to Freud" emphasizes a renewed attention to the original texts of Freud, and included a radical critique of Ego psychology. Lacan has been called "the most controversial psycho-analyst since Freud" mainly because of his (selective) revival of Freud and his quarrel with the IPA - the present publication not only marks the revival of Freud, it also initiates the split with the IPA.The main reason for the split between between the IPA and Lacan was Lacan's use of sessions of variable duration which the IPA did not advocate:"After (Lacan's) resigning from the IPA-affiliated Société Psychanalytique de Paris (SPP) in 1953, to join the newly founded Société Francaise de Psychoanalyse (SFP), Lacan was informed by letter that this also meant that he was no longer a member of the IPA. From that moment on Lacan until his dead Lacan and the IPA were at loggerheads. Lacan criticized both the institutional structure and the dominant theoretical tendencies of the IPA. [...]. Lacan argued that Freud had organized the IPA in such a way because that was the only way to assuring that his theories, misunderstood by all his first followers, remain intact for someone else (Lacan) to disinter and resuscitate later on. The IPA was, in other words, like a tomb whose only function was to preserve Freud's doctrine despite the ignorance of the members of the association, the implication being that once Lacan had breathed new life into the doctrine [which he did with the present publication], the IPA no longer had any valid function at all.

This copy with two one-page typed letters on Meinertzhagen's 17 Kensington Park Gardens - "KPG" - stationery to Evelyn John Mardon, late Indian Civil Service who served in the North-West Provinces and Oudh, and self-published a number of works on big game hunting, Shikar Memories, Stalks in Three Continents, and Safaris in East Africa. In the first, dated 16 February 1958 and initialled, Meinertzhagen thanks Mardon for his letter, "glad to hear my Kenya Diary interested you. I should appreciate seeing your book on Kenya"; and the second, dated 20 February and fully signed, remarks that Mardon's book had "brought back all sorts of memories", continuing "I am only ten years younger than you and still go to Kenya almost every year for I love the country and the people both white and coloured … I am glad to see that you had met Raymond Hook of Nanyuki. I went to the top of Mount Kenya with him in 1936 … I am too old to climb the mountain again. It fascinates me"; before concluding with typical hyperbole, "I think it is the most perfect mountain in the world and I know most of them including all the highest Himalayan ones".
