      Frankfurt, S. Fischer Verlag 1966 - Livre d'occasion 21 x 16,3 cm, cartonnage éditeur, jaquette blanche imprimée en noir, 66 pp., 2 ff. n. ch. Marie-Madeleine Delay était l'épouse du Professeur Jean Delay, psychiatre neurologue qui dirigeait le service de psychiatrie de l'Hôpital Sainte-Anne dans lequel Paul Celan avait été accueilli début février 1966. Elle était aussi une amie intime de René Char, qui avec son soutien, intervint pour améliorer les conditions d'hospitalisation de Celan. Les correspondances échangées par Paul Celan avec sa femme, Gisèle Celan-Lestrange (Seuil, 2001) ainsi qu'avec René Char (à paraître en 2015 chez Gallimard) permettent d'éclaircir les circonstances dans lesquelles a été écrite cette dédicace en apparence anodine. Le 23 décembre 1965, René Char, ayant appris que le traducteur de sa poésie en allemand est souffrant, écrit à son épouse Gisèle pour lui proposer son aide. Celan est alors interné à Sainte-Anne parce que, dans une crise de délire, il a voulu attenter à la vie de sa femme. Le 11 janvier 1966, Gisèle rend visite à Char pour essayer de trouver une solution aux multiples problèmes auxquelles elle est confrontée. Trois semaines plus tard, le 5 février, Marie-Madeleine Delay, dans une lettre à Char, l'informe qu'on vient de lui recommander le poète Paul Celan et lui apprend qu'elle s'occupe de lui. Le 8 février, le Professeur Pierre Deniker, qui travaille avec Jean Delay, écrit à René Char et lui confirme qu'il fera "le maximum pour Paul Celan". Paul Celan est alors interné dans le service du Professeur Delay pour y suivre un traitement adapté. Dans une lettre datée du 10 février, Marie-Madeleine Delay informe Char que Paul Celan est "calme". Dans la même missive, elle commente sa lecture de Die Niemandsrose (La Rose de personne), recueil de Celan paru en 1963, que Char, qui n'ignore pas qu'elle lit l'allemand, lui a probablement confié : "ce sont des Poèmes [.] d'une grande et terrible beauté". Le 9 juin 1966, Paul Celan sort de l'hôpital et retrouve une vie familiale plus apaisée. Vient alors le temps des remerciements. Celan adresse à Char le 21 juillet la traduction en allemand de "Dernière Marche", le poème qui clôt Retour Amont. C'est très certainement à la même période, que le poète allemand envoie cet exemplaire de Sprachgitter à Marie-Madeleine Delay. La dédicace, comme presque toutes celles de la plume de Celan, est lapidaire, mais elle est - on le comprend une fois qu'on connaît les circonstances dans lesquelles elle a été écrite - lestée de non-dit. Remerciements à M. Bertrand Badiou (enseignant-chercheur à l'Ecole normale supérieure). Condition : Réédition de 1966 (correspondant au tirage du 7ème au 9ème mille) en allemand de ce recueil de poèmes (Grille de parole en français), l'édition originale ayant paru chez le même éditeur en 1959. Très précieux envoi autographe signé de l'auteur : "A Madame Delay, / avec mes respectueux hommages, / Paul Celan". 280g. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      (1966) 1966 - A 2-1/2 page handwritten manuscript on three sheets containing Stengel's notes for his induction speech to the Hall of Fame in 1966, an honor he shared that year with Ted Williams, who gave one of the most important speeches in baseball history when he asked the Hall to open its doors to Negro Leagues players. Stengel, whose career began as a player in 1912 and ended as a manager in 1965, was one of the most colorful figures in the game, noted for his twists of language and truisms such as "Good pitching beats good hitting, and vice versa." As manager of the Yankees, he won 7 World Series out of 9 appearances in 12 years. Mickey Mantle in his Hall of Fame speech said that his father and Stengel were responsible for his success. He also managed the 1962 Mets, the worst team in modern baseball. After their final loss that season, Casey told his players, "This has been a team effort. No one or two guys could have done all this." The notes begin "Hall of Fame & Museum, Cooperstown, N.Y., July 25th 1966," mention "Ted Williams, perfect swing, can hit distance, greatest batter hitting L. handed in my experience in the American League." He cites many players: Ruth, Cobb, Dimaggio, Mantle, often with a comment, and lists the names of all the original inductees. He mentions Abner Doubleday, One-Cat Two-Cat or Rounders, "girls teams 1890-1, Dresses with bloomers," and much more. These pages may have been on the podium with Casey when he accepted baseball's greatest honor. In any event, they are important and historic. Writing dark and clear. Very Good and exceptional

        The Collected Scientific Papers of Paul A. Samuelson. Volumes I-VII.

      MIT Press 1966-2011., Cambridge, MA - First editions of each volume of the collected papers of Nobel Prize-winning economists papers. Octavo, 7 volumes, original cloth. Volumes 1-5 are near fine in very good to near fine dust jackets. Volumes 1-5 are signed by Paul A. Samuelson; volumes I & II are signed by fellow Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz, who served as editor of these volumes. Volumes 6 and 7 are fine in a fine jackets, and were published posthumously. A very attractive set, scarce signed. "It is a measure of Professor Samuelson's preeminence that the sheer scale of his work should be so much taken for granted," observes a reviewer in the "Economist" who goes on to note that "a cynic might add that it would have been better for Professor Samuelson to write less merely to give others a chance to write at all." In fact, Samuelson's output, his "extraordinary mastery of methods, both mathematical and linguistic" (review of Volume 4 of "The Collected Scientific Papers"), have not diminished. Volumes 1 through 4 encompass more than 280 articles. The first two contain virtually all of Samuelson's contributions to economic theory through mid-1964; Volume 3 contains all the scientific papers written from mid-1964 through 1970, and the last volume brings his work up to through 1976.

        Three Original Paintings

      - Two original acrylic miniature paintings and one miniature watercolor painting. Each is approximately 3.25" x 4.25" and is housed in an envelope addressed to Lady Kay Deeks. As follows: 1) an original acrylic painting mounted on a white card with Nocho's name stamped on the verso and on the flap of the envelope. The envelope was sent from Montreal and postmarked 1966, addressed in his Nocho's hand to Lady Kay Deeks in London, with his return address handwritten on the flap; 2) an original acrylic painting on a small greeting card, Inscribed inside "May God Forever Bless You" and Signed "Lobo Nocho." The envelope is postmarked New York 1968 and is addressed in his hand to "Lady Kay" with his name and address handwritten on the flap of the envelope; 3) an original watercolor on a greeting card Inscribed inside "God Bless" and Signed "Lobo Nocho." "Lady Kay Deeks" is written in his hand on the envelope, which was apparently delivered in person, as it bears no postal marks. The paintings are of abstract subjects and are quite striking. They are in fine condition. The envelopes are in very good condition.Nocho was an African-American expatriate artist who spent much of his life in France. He grew up in Philadelphia. When he was 19, he joined the Canadian Army, then transferred to the U.S. Army and participated in the Normandy invasion. Though many of his paintings won top awards and were exhibited in Philadelphia, he refused to sell any of them. At age 25, he renounced his American citizenship. His older brother said, "He was always sensitive about race and the way Negroes are treated in this country. He just couldn't adjust to Philadelphia life any more and once told me he thought everyone who looked at him on the street regarded him not as a painter, not even as a human being, but as a black man." After renouncing his citizenship, he worked as a singer and a dancer as well as a painter. He painted the design on the door of the popular Paris jazz club, the Mars Club, a haunt of American musicians, especially African-American musicians.At the age of 44, after becoming a French citizen, he became romantically involved with the fifty-year-old Sarah Churchill, daughter of Sir Winston Churchill. She rented a lavish Roman villa for him in which he could paint, though Churchill's father did not approve of her affair "with a Negro artist-playboy" (*Jet*, July 28, 1966). One of her published poems decries his objections: "Forgive me if I do not cry / The day you die / The simplest reason that I know / You said you'd rather have it so" and "This is what I have chosen / This moment bitter and free / This is what I have chosen." Nocho's vivid, original art is very uncommon.

        The Savage Mind.

      University of Chicago 1966 - First Edition of the author's magum opus. Octavo. Inscribed by Claude Levi- Strauss on the half title page, "Author's compliments to ______ Claude Levi-Strauss." Light rubbing to the bottom cloth, a near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Lévi-Strauss explains that the savage mind is not a particular mind but "rather a mind in its untamed state as distinct from mind cultivated or domesticated for the purpose of yielding a return" (219). The Savage Mind was one of the earliest works of structural anthropology, and it was vastly influential to the general field. The book also influenced the philosophical fields of structuralism and post-structuralism. The application of bricolage to social structure, the unified application of interdisciplinary studies to a single field, directly inspired Jacques Derrida's essay "Structure, Sign and Play". And the notion that social structures can be recontextualized plays a large role in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's Capitalism and Schizophrenia. "Every word, like a sacred object, has its place. No précis is possible. This extraordinary book must be read" (Edmund Carpenter, New York Times Book Review). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
