        L'envers et l'endroit Grand papier ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Gallimard, 1958. Fine. Gallimard, Paris 1958, 11,5x18cm, reliure de l'éditeur. - Later edition of 550 numbered copies on vélin labeur paper. Publisher's paper boards with an original design by Paul Bonet. Precious and beautiful inscription from Albert Camus to René Char :  " à vous cher René, ces confidences, et une amitié du même cœur, fraternellement. / Albert Camus. / Juin 59" Very nice copy of exceptional provenance. The friendship between Albert Camus and René Char is among the most touching and most fruitful in French literature.  There was nothing obvious to bring together the Algerian journalist and author and the Provencal poet, much less to suggest a mutual affinity. Camus had not come across Char's poetry and Char had no taste for novels, apart from those of Maurice Blanchot. Nonetheless, it is through their respective works that the two artists found out about each other and developed a mutual respect. So - before Camus and Char actually met - they had met through Caligula and Hypnos - both illustrating the poet's responsibility in the face of the violent world. "So in our darkness Beauty has no given space. All that space is for Beauty" (Char, Feuillets d'Hypnos). It is this mutual need for Beauty as a political response to the outrageousness of ideologies that united the two artists at the end of the war.  Catalyst to their friendship, this first "acknowledgment" inaugurated a twelve-year correspondence, during the course of which their mutual affection grew and revealed an artistic convergence:   "I believe that our brotherhood - on all levels - goes even deeper than we think and feel" (Char to Camus, 3 November 1951). "What a great and profound thing it is to detach oneself bit by bit from all that and all those who are worth nothing and to find little by little over the years and across borders a community of spirit. Like with many of us, who all at once feel ourselves finally becoming of 'the few'" (Camus to Char, 26 February 1950). These 'few' are a reference to a quotation from Gide: "I believe in the virtue of small numbers; the world will be saved by a few," whom Char and Camus tried to bring together in establishing the Empédocle review: "It is perhaps time that 'the few' Gide talked about came together," as Camus wrote to Guilloux in January 1949. They published writing by Gracq, Melville, Grenier, Guilloux, Blanchot, Ponge, Rilke, Kafka, and so on. However, internal dissension soon engulfed the review and they abandoned the project together.   Their friendship, however, remained unblemished. The two men met regularly in Provence, where Char was from and - thanks to him - Camus' adopted home. They showed each other their manuscripts and confided in each other with their doubts: "The more I produce the less sure I become. Night falls ever thicker on the artist's path, his way. Eventually, he dies completely blind. My only hope is that there is still light inside, somewhere, and though he cannot see it, it continues to shine nonetheless. But how can one be sure? That is why one must rely on a friend, one who knows and understands, one who is walking that same path."    They inscribed works to each other (the reprints of Feuillets d'Hypnos and Actuelles) and in each new copy wrote inscriptions in which they both reinforced their comradeship in arms and in spirit.  "to René Char who helps me live, awaiting our kingdom, his friend and brother in hope," (manuscript of The Plague). "For Albert Camus, one of the very rare men I admire and love and whose work is the honor of our times. René Char," (Fureur et mystère) "[to RENÉ CHAR], fellow traveler, this guidebook to a mutual voyage into the time of men, waiting for noon. Affectionately, Albert Camus," (Actuelles I) "For Albert Camus, whose friendship and work form a Presence that illuminates and fortifies the eyes," (Art bref). "Oh if only poets would agree to become again what they were before: seers who speak to us of all that is possible...If they only gave us a foretaste of virtues to come. Nietzsche." "To René Char, brother of the undersigned, with whom he has been there all the way, with admiration and affection from his friend / Albert Camus." This copy was doubtless inscribed in October 1953 along with the other "bound" copies (the Prassinos binding - cf. letter of the 23 October 1953). Camus had already presented Char with a first copy of this ode to his homeland, first published in 1939, well before their meeting: "To René Char, to bring back for us those years in which I did not know him, but which already held within them the reasons for our friendship." This second inscription on "these first Nuptials," underlines how this youthful work which celebrates the "nuptials of man with the world," is a precocious revelation of what they would go on to call their "fraternity with the planet". On Camus' death, Char published La postérité du soleil, the work they wrote together in 1952, an homage to their friendship and to that "hinterland which is the image of our own, invisible to others." A very attractive copy with an 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 cœur, 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.

        Het dorp Groot Zundert, van den oliemolen te zien. With: 2) Het dorp Etten met deszelfs raadhuis. 3) Het dorp De Leur, van den Rietdyk te zien. 4) Het dorp Rysbergen.[Groot Zundert, Etten, Leur and Rijsbergen (North Brabant)], [ca. 1778?]. Drawings in coloured gouaches on laid paper (31 x 47 cm), showing views of the villages of Groot Zundert, Etten, Leur and Rijsbergen all near Breda. Each drawing in a wide, mahogany-veneered wooden frame (63 x 79 cm; ca. 1820?), under glass, the outer part of the glass lacquered on the underside in black with a thick gold double- line (for Etten a thicker single-line) border around the drawing, and the title in gold lettering below it in an upright bastarda gothic style.

      C. Th. Lohmann, “Het huis ‘De Zwaan' te Etten”, in: Jaarboek De Oranjeboom XI (1958), pp. 155-162; for Verrijk: A.G. Schulte, Dirk Verrijk 1734-1786: tekeningen en schetsen (1993). Four lovely large views of four villages, all 8 to 15 km west and southwest of Breda in the Dutch province of North Brabant, near today's Belgian border, drawn from life by the Haarlem painter Dirk Verrijk (1734-1786). Verrijk signed those of Groot Zundert (below right) and Etten (below left), both also "del. ad viv.". All four clearly match in format and style and must have been made as a series.1) A view of the village of Groot Zundert (now Zundert), looking northeast up the Molenstraat from site of the horse-powered oil mill, with a coach on the hanging shop sign of a coach/wagon maker in the foreground right (with a wagon maker at work before the shed next door), a large corner house in the foreground left and the steeple of a church in the distance. Besides numerous tile-roofed and thatched houses, one can see a well next to a thatch-roofed hitching post(?), numerous people busy with their daily activities and a horse-drawn covered wagon. 2) A view of the town of Etten (now the larger southwest part of Etten-Leur) from the Markt showing the then new town hall (built 1776) with the church tower behind it to the right. In the foreground at the right one can see a splendid step-gabled inn/tavern "De Zwaan" with a swan on its hanging signboard.3) A view of the village of Leur (now the smaller northeast part of Etten-Leur) from the "Rietdijk", apparently looking east from what is now the Korte Brugstraat, with step-gabled houses on either side and a road leading to a drawbridge over a canal in the centre of the view and the 1614 Reformed Church (now the Trouwkerkje) across the canal on the right. People stand talking before several houses.4) A view of the village of Rijsbergen, probably looking northeast from what is now the Antwerpseweg, with mostly thatched houses, a roofed wooden manger(?), horse-drawn wagons and carriages, and dozens of people before the buildings, several quite elegantly dressed.The view of Etten has a few small restorations along the edges, but all are otherwise in very good condition. The veneer of the frames shows several small chips and the glass for Etten was replaced at a later date (the others are blown glass) and its gold border and lettering therefore also differ slightly from the other three, but the frames are otherwise in good condition. Four lovely large village views in coloured gouaches, with very detailed scenes and showing the houses and other buildings that are now almost entirely lost.

        Kakkenpo: Karate Kyohan

      Bok. Renbukan. 1958. 114 s. Hardback with printed board cover (as issued). This is a true gem for the serious collector and researcher of martial art books.Sai Choko (also known as Tsai Chang Gan) was a renowned author and teacher of karate in Japan. In February 1941 the Japan Times published a photo of some men doing what looked like karate above this caption: "A new form of defense has been worked out by Mr. Choko Sai, of Formosa, combining points of judo and a kind of boxing perfected in the Loochoo Islands." . Moreover, at the end of the fifties he was named president of board of directors of AJKF (All Japan Karate-Do Federation) organization founded by master Kanken Toyama in 1946. This is an early and very rare karatebook and one of the few described as crane kempo. Karate written with the old kanji meaning Chinese hand (Tang hand). The books pages have of course darkened, but the book is preserved in a very good condition.

Typografie, Grafik und Werbung am Bauhaus. - Neue Grafik kann aus historischer Sicht als programmatische Plattform und wirksamstes publizistisches Organ der zu ihrer Zeit international massgeblichen Schweizer Grafik betrachtet werden. In der Zeitschrift wurde von den Protagonisten der Schweizer Schule beziehungsweise ihrer strengen Zürcher Fraktion ein fundamentaler Diskurs über die Grundlagen einer angesagten objektiven Kommunikation und einer konstruktiven Gestaltung geführt. Der Einfluss der Bewegung kann nicht hoch genug eingeschätzt werden. Weltweit wurde die Schweizer Schule, auch International Style genannt, zum Vorbild für die aufkommende konzeptionelle Ausrichtung des Corporate Design von zunehmend global operierenden Grossunternehmen. Aber auch auf die Gestaltung solitärer Aufgaben wie Plakaten, Ausstellungen und Publikationen hatte die Bewegung vorbildhaften Einfluss.Die Neue Grafik ist heute ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt der jüngeren Geschichte grafischer Gestaltung. Nach dem digitalen Höhenflug lässt sich eine neue Nachfrage nach sachbezogenen Konzeptionen und einer klaren Formensprache feststellen. So ist auch das Interesse an der fast fundamentalistisch zu nennenden Haltung der vier Zürcher Grafiker zu erklären, die als Herausgeber für die Inhalte der Zeitschrift verantwortlich zeichneten.

        Mani (Signed And Doodled By The Author To Theodore Stephanides)

      The First UK printing published by John Murray in 1958. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. A little pushing at the spine ends. Light fading to the spine which has slightly encroached onto the front cover. Boards lightly marked places. Gilt tilting and motif remain bright. Light toning to the text block. The WRAPPER is in Very Good++ or better condition and is clipped (as commonly found) with the publisher's revised price present. A little minor rubbing and toning to the spine and rear cover with a few nicks. The John Craxton designed wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival protector. The book has been INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the first blank end paper: 'To Theodore Stephanides, with many greetings from Patrick Leigh Fermor, London, April 1964'. The author has also doodled a copy of the eye and the greek wording (relating to page 187 : 'Where is Alexander The Great.') from the frontispiece design. There is also the name in pencil of "T.Stephanides' to the upper front end paper. Theodore Stephanides was a Greek poet, author, doctor and naturalist. He is best remembered as the friend and mentor of the famous naturalist Gerald Durrell, featuring in many of Durrell's books including 'My Family and Other Animals, Birds, Beasts and Relatives', Durrell's brother Lawrence's 'Prospero's Cell', and Henry Miller's 'The Colossus of Maroussi'. He was a close friend of Leigh Fermor. A polymath, Stephanides was respected as a scientist and doctor, and acclaimed as a poet in both Greek and English, and translated a sizeable body of Greek poetry to English: notably a significant body of work by Greek poet Kostis Palamas and the Greek near-epic work Erotocritos. He was also a noted biologist and scientist who has three species named after him. He also wrote a definitive biological treatise on the freshwater life in Corfu. His autobiographical account of the Battle of Crete - 'Climax in Crete', and his fictitious account of Corfu and the Ionian Islands - 'Island Trails were widely read', but are now sadly out of print. A significant association copy and very scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
