        Poems by Hernia Whittlebot. With an appreciation by Nöel [sic] Coward.

      No publisher, no date [1923]., 1958, Soft cover, Book Condition: Very Good, 1st Edition. First Edition (never reprinted). 4to. 29pp. Card wrappers, very lightly tanned and spotted. Staples rusting. Tipped-in to the first leaf is the mock errata slip ("In 'A May Morning' read 'Colwyn Bay' for 'Plymouth Sound'"). Production fault crease to several text leaves. A very crisp and bright copy of Coward's scarce pastiche of Edith Sitwell (she was unimpressed, yet he still published a follow-up, 'Chelsea Buns', two years later). Each appearance of Coward's first name has the diaeresis misplaced, presumably an intentional error. Neat former owner gift inscription inked to head of first leaf.

Inscribed to Greene's mistress on the front blank endleaf "After Days & nights of agonizing reappraisal:- To Annette with love The Author!!". Prostitutes certainly fascinated Greene throughout his life. He had something like a real love affair with one called "Annette" in the mid-Thirties. He made a point of patronizing the brothels in every foreign country he visited, if only as a nonparticipating observer. But that he indulged this taste at the very onset of his marriage was hardly a good omen for its future.

Binding Editor open cardboard made according to the original model of Paul Bonet. Precious and beautiful autograph signed by the author René Char: "to you dear Rene these confidences, and a friendship of the heart, brotherly / Albert Camus / June 59..." Very nice copy of exceptional provenance. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition imprimée à 550 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin labeur. Reliure de l'éditeur en plein cartonnage réalisé d'après la maquette originale de Paul Bonet. Précieux et superbe envoi autographe signé d'Albert Camus à René Char, réalisé quelques mois avant sa mort soudaine en janvier 1960 : " à vous cher René , ces confidences, et une amitié du même coeur, fraternellement. / Albert Camus. / Juin 59". A la remise de son prix Nobel, Camus déclarait en conférence de presse: "Notre plus grand poète français selon moi, je veux dire René Char, qui est pour moi non seulement un poète, un grand poète et un écrivain d'immense talent, mais qui est pour moi comme un frère. (...) Depuis Apollinaire(...) il n'y a pas eu dans la littérature française de révolution comparable à celle qu'a accomplie René Char." L'amitié entre Albert Camus et René Char figure parmi les plus belles et fructueuses de la littérature française. Rien ne semblait destiner l'écrivain journaliste algérois et le poète provençal à se rencontrer et encore moins à s'apprécier. Camus n'entendait rien à la poésie et Char n'avait aucun goût pour le roman, ceux de Maurice Blanchot mis à part. Pourtant, c'est par leurs œuvres respectives que les deux artistes se découvrent et s'apprécient. Ainsi avant Camus et Char se rencontrent Caligula et Hypnos, illustrant tous deux la responsabilité du poète face à la violence du monde. « Dans nos ténèbres, il n'y a pas une place pour la Beauté. Toute la place est pour la Beauté. » (Char, Feuillets d'Hypnos). C'est cette exigence commune de la Beauté comme réponse politique à la démesure des idéologies qui unit les deux artistes au sortir de la guerre. Ferment de leur amitié, cette première « reconnaissance » inaugure une correspondance de douze années au fil de laquelle croît leur affection mutuelle et se révèlent leur convergences artistiques : « Je crois que notre fraternité - sur tous les plans - va encore plus loin que nous l'envisageons et que nous l'éprouvons. » (Char à Camus, 3 novembre 1951). « Quelle bonne et profonde chose que de se détacher peu à peu de tout ce et tous ceux qui ne méritent rien et de reconnaître peu à peu à travers les années et les frontières une famille d'esprits. Comme on se sent beaucoup tout d'un coup à être enfin quelques-uns... » (Camus à Char, 26 février 1950) Ces « quelques-uns », référence à la citation de Gide : « Je crois à la vertu du petit nombre ; le monde sera sauvé par quelques-uns », Char et Camus tenteront de les rassembler en fondant ensemble la revue Empédocle : « Il est peut-être temps que les quelques-uns dont parlait Gide se réunissent » écrit Camus à Guilloux en janvier 1949. Ils publieront des écrits de Gracq, Melville, Grenier, Guilloux, Blanchot, Ponge, Rilke, Kafka... Les dissensions internes auront rapidement raison de la revue, et c'est ensemble qu'ils abandonneront le projet. Leur amitié, elle, est sans ombre. Les deux hommes se retrouvent régulièrement en Provence, terre natale de Char et devenue, grâce à lui, le pays d'adoption de Camus. Ils partagent leurs manuscrits, se confient leur doutes : « Plus je produis et moins je suis sûr. Sur le chemin où marche un artiste, la nuit tombe de plus en plus épaisse. Finalement, il meurt aveugle. Ma seule foi est que la lumière l'habite, au-dedans, et qu'il ne peut la voir, et qu'elle rayonne quand même. Mais comment en être sûr. C'est pourquoi il faut bien s'appuyer sur l'ami, quand il sait et comprend, et qu'il marche lui-même du même pas. » Ils se dédient leurs œuvres (la réédition des Feuillets d'Hypnos et Actuelles) et s'adressent sur chaque nouvel exemplaire des dédicaces qui, chacune, scellent leur fraternité d'armes et d'âme. « à René Char qui aide à vivre, en attendant notre royaume, son ami et son frère en espoir. » (manuscrit de La Peste) « Pour Albert Camus, un des très rares hommes que j'admire et que j'aime et dont l'œuvre est l'honneur de ce temps. René Char » (Fureur et mystère) « [à RENÉ CHAR], frère de route, ce livre de bord d'un commun voyage vers le temps des hommes, en attendant midi. Affectueusement Albert Camus » (Actuelles I) « Pour Albert Camus, dont l'amitié et l'œuvre forment une Présence qui éclaire et fortifie les yeux » (Art bref) « Ah si seulement les poètes consentaient à redevenir ce qu'ils étaient autrefois : des voyants qui nous parlent de ce qui est possible... Que ne nous donnent-ils l'avant-goût des vertus à venir. Nietzsche ». « A René Char, frère de ceux-ci, dont il a fait toute la route avec l'admiration et l'affection de son ami. / Albert Camus » A la mort de Camus, Char publie La postérité du soleil, leur œuvre commune écrite en 1952, hommage à leur amitié et à : « cet arrière-pays qui est à l'image du nôtre, invisible à autrui ». Très bel exemplaire d'une exceptionnelle provenance. Merci de nous contacter 24 heures à l'avance si vous souhaitez voir cet ouvrage à la librairie.

      MURAYAMA, Tamotsu. COUNT TADASU HAYASHI: GREAT JAPANESE MASON. [Assumed to be printed in Tokyo]: Sponsored By The Kanto Lodge No. 143 (PI), no publication date but circa 1958. 8vo., turqouise printed wraps, stamped in black; 57 pages with 12 pages also in Japanese, which we have not translated. First Edition. Hayashi, a Japanese Masonic Grand Master, was among the first group of students ever sent by Japan to be schooled in England in the latter 19th century. Hayaski returned from England on the eve of the abolition of the Shogunate and sailed with Enomoto to Yezo. After being subsequently thrown in prison, he later became a diplomat (of course) and had a fairly illustrious career. He was initiated to Empire Masonic Lodge 2108 in 1903 and later became Grand Master. He was also honored Senior Grand Warden of the United Kingdom in England in 1905. Signed presentation from Murayama on the front endpaper: "To Gen. L.L. Lemnitzer, great and understanding Mason- Tamotsu Murayama 12/19/58, Tokyo." With an autograph note signed on Office of the Adjutant General stationery from Herbert L. Nelson presenting the general with this copy. Also with Murayama's Tokyo address on a 3x5 card and a typed schedule for the general, dated Sat, Feb. 28, 1959. Gen. Lyman Louis Lemnitzer (1899-1988) was an extremely influential Army officer and served as JFK's Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the controversial Bay of Pigs invasion in Cuba. He lated became the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO from 1963-1969. Earlier in his career he was on Gen. Eisenhowers's staff during World War II and reportedly helped negotiate the surrender of both Italy and Germany. He was later accused of helping some Nazis escape investigation for war crimes. He is a character in Oliver Stone's 1991 movie "JFK" and was really quite an interesting person- right out of the movies!! And, apparently, a Mason. I have been unable to locate any other copy of this title and would have to say that it is rare, especially with such a terrific presentation. Near fine condition- a great copy! $1500.00.

Pur nella presenza di diverse componenti, nella redazioine e tra i collaboratori, la rivista nei primi anni si caratterizzava per la posizione di una linea poetica che tenesse conto della tradizione ermetica e dei nuovi esiti che aveva assunto nel primo dopoguerra. Sui numeri 3, 6 - 7, 8 - 9, 15 - 16 vennero dibattuti i contrasti esistenti. Alla direzione si sono succeduti GEROLA , ZAGARRIO, ed infine TOTI e MARESCALCHI.
