        The Potting Shed. A Play

      London: Heinemann, 1958. FIRST EDITION PRESENTATION COPY TO HIS MISTRESS. 1 vol., hardbound with the priced DJ, VG/VG. 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.

        L'envers et l'endroit Grand papier ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Gallimard, 1958. Fine. Gallimard, Paris 1958, 11,5x18cm, reliure de l'éditeur. - New edition printed in 550 numbered copies on vellum work. 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.

        COUNT TADASU HAYASHI: GREAT JAPANESE GRAND MASTER

      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.

        Anthropologie structurale. Avec 23 illustrations dans le texte et 13 illustrations hors-texte

Presentation copy of Lévi-Strauss' major work to his associate and one of the contributors of the book, Jean Pouillon. Not only the dedication but also the first sentence of the book refers to Pouillon: "Dans une étude récente, M. Jean Pouillon a écrit une phrase qu'il ne m'en voudra pas, j'espère, de citer en tête du présent ouvrage, car elle répond admirablement à tout ce que j'ai souhaité accomplir dans l'ordre scientifique, en doutant souvent d'y être parvenu: «Lévi-Strauss n'est certes ni le premier, ni le seul à souligner le caractère structurel des phénomènes sociaux, mais son originalité est de le prendre au sérieux et d'en tirer imperturbablement toutes les conséquences»." ("In a recent study, Mr. Jean Pouillon wrote a sentence, I hope he will forgive me to cite it in this book, that responds excellently to everything I wanted to accomplish in meaning of science, and often I doubt to be able to reach: «Lévi-Strauss is certainly neither the first nor the only one who emphasises the structural character of the social phenomena, his originality is to take it seriously and derives all its consequences imperturbably».") Pouillon's quoted article, "L'ouvre de Claude Lévi-Strauss" (Les Temps Modernes. No. 126, July 1956) was written as a commission of Jean-PauSartre, Pouillon's intimate friend, to write a review about Lévi-Strauss' recently published book the "Tristes Tropiques" for Sartre's magazine "Les Temps Modernes". The result was an in-depth study of the evolution of Lévi-Strauss' thinking and the turn of Pouillon's interest from philosophy, that he studied at University, to ethnology. He became friend with Lévi-Strauss and the editor of the ethnological magazine "L'Homme. Revue française d'anthropologie" that was established by Claude Lévi-Strauss, Emile Benveniste and Pierre Gourou. In his book "Anthropologie structurale" Lévi-Strauss explains his theory on culture, that he considers as a system of symbolic communication, to be investigated with methods that others have used more narrowly in the discussion of novels, political speeches, sports, and movies. [Ref.: Dosse, F.: History of Structuralism. The rising sign, 1945--1966. Minneapolis. University of Minnesota Press, 1997. pp. 5-8.]. With a few marginal signs (on 4 pages) and one note in ink on p. 401 by Pouillon. Four plates with black and white photographic reproductions. Spine slightly worn. Overall in very good condition. In original wrappers, printed in red and black First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed to Jean Pouillon [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Memoirs of Field - Marshal the Viscount Montgomery of Alamein. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

      Collins 1958 8vo., First Edition, with a fine portrait frontispiece and 65 plates and maps (a number full - page) on 39, endpapers and title mildly spotted; original red cloth, gilt back, red top, backstrip lightly faded at head and tail (but all gilt entirely legible) a very good, crisp copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter chafed at extremities and lightly browned on (predominantly white) lower panel. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. With an extensive newspaper obituary and another relevant cutting loosely inserted. One of the key military memoirs of the twentieth century, this is as much an autobiography as a soldier's account of war. Written entirely by 'Monty' himself (in pencil, as so many of his official communications were composed), this characteristically straightforward (and often politically outspoken) account covers boyhood, early service with the Warwickshires, WWII and beyond (notably, about a third of the work covers his post - war career as CIGS and after). For technical military detail we look to the author's other works; here we find the simple account of a 'soldier who kept the faith'. A great read from one of the unforgettable leaders of his times. Baxter, 268; Enser, p.277.

        [Photographs]: Nearly 300 Armenian-American Vacation Polaroids

      New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Montreal, Hawaii, Naples, Barcelona. 1958-1970. A collection of 291 early Polaroid photographs taken between 1958 and the early 1970s. Photos are in color or black-and-white and all are near fine or better, and virtually all are captioned and numbered to 324, lacking 33 images. The photos document an Armenian-American family from New York through two decades of holidays, vacations, and milestones all while utilizing Polaroid Insta-film. Beginning in 1958, a decade after the invention of the Edwin H. Land's film. The photographs show winter in New York, celebrations with Turkish dancers, and a trip to Montreal. The family went to New Jersey's Asbury Park to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean and New York's Lake George. Their Armenian heritage was of great importance with trips to the Armenian Old Age Home in Emerson, NJ along with numerous accounts of traditional dancing in a variety of settings. By the 1970s the pictures are in color, just in time to capture Hawaii and a cruise on the ship Bon Vivant to Naples, Barcelona, and Cannes. Pictures of Hawaiian luaus, sunbathers in France, and Vatican City are all shown in vibrant colors. In 1948 Edwin Land, founder of Polaroid, introduced his self-developing cameras to the world, which were manufactured until 1983. The later pictures shown here were taken with the Polaroid SX70 Land camera which Time magazine's Harry McCraken dubbed, "the greatest gadget of all time." Early film developed in 60 seconds while the new model produced up to five pictures in 10 seconds and was so popular it made the cover of both Time and Life magazines. The album shadows the history of vernacular use of the instant film camera over its seminal decades and its rise in popularity through constant innovation. Unusual in that all the photographs in the album are Polaroid's, which were relatively expensive. .

        Breakfast at Tiffany's

      New York: Random House, 1958 First edition, first printing. Publisher's yellow cloth, black label lettered in gilt to spine; in the original orange dust jacket designed by Ismar David. Near fine, with a minor stain to the fore edge, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with the usual toning to the spine, short loss to the spine tail, minor nicks to the extremities, short closed tear to the rear panel, light soiling to the otherwise bright panels. A very good copy. Breakfast at Tiffany's is the author's third novel and includes the short stories, "House of Flowers," "A Diamond Guitar," and "A Christmas Memory," in addition to the title novella. This beloved text features the iconic protagonist Holly Golightly, a passionate and free-spirited young woman living in New York City. The plot tells of an unnamed narrator, a writer, as he gets to know Holly and learns about her quest to find happiness and a place to call home. Breakfast at Tiffany's was first published in Esquire magazine in 1958 after being rejected by Harper's Bazaar for being too racy. Random House published the novella along with three of Capote's popular short stories, and it was made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn three years later. Interestingly, Holly Golightly was originally named Connie Gustafson, and Capote only changed her name as a last-minute decision shortly before publication.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
