"In late October, 1964, in a small bus equpped for camping [Ogburn] set out alone for upper Maine. From Mount Desert Island, he traveled southward with the season, pausing for intensive explorations of Cape Cod and Nantucket, of the Long Island beaches, and of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands off the Virginia shore, until he reached the outer banks of North Carolina. The result is a book of eloquence and vitality, of depth and beauty, and one to which the reader will return again and again." [from the jacket]. This is Ogburn's Classic & an important book in the Natural History genre. Here, he explores and ruminates upon the various Atlantic seacoasts always noting the austere beauty of the sea in winter. An extraordinary vibrant & well informed work, a mixture of scientific fact & sweeping epiphany. Not as well known as Henry Beton's 1928 clasic, The Outermost House but certainly on a par.

        Quatre billets autographes signés à propos du plateau d'Albion (20 avril 1966 et 1er mai 1966)

      1966. Lettre. Très bon. Couverture souple. Ed. originale. 20 avril et 1er mai 1966. 4 billets autographes in-8 oblongs confiés à Christian Maurel, le premier adressé à Lili (sa gouvernante aux "Busclats", sa maison de L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, 7 lignes), le second à "Bruno" (9 lignes), le troisième (6 lignes) et le dernier (11 lignes) destinés à Christian Maurel (6 lignes). Chaque billet est signé. Muni des trois premiers billets, Christian Maurel va à L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue pour aider René Char dans son combat contre l'installation de missiles à tête nucléaire sur le plateau d'Albion (probablement pour écrire des articles dans l'Express). Dans le premier billet, Char informe Lili que Maurel pourra "coucher et travailler dans la maison durant son séjour à L'Isle". A Bruno, Char présente Maurel comme "un ami qui vient pour nous aider au sujet de notre affaire d'Albion" et lui demande de lui "faciliter la tâche" en le faisant rencontrer "entr'autres Marceau Seignon [maire de Bonnieux dans le Vaucluse]". Dans le troisième billet, Char indique lapidairement qu'il faut voir Marceau Seignon et Heloïs Castor, maire de Simiane (Basses-Alpes). Dans le dernier billet, daté du 1er mai, il remercie Maurel pour son aide : "merci pour le bien réel que vous avez fait là-bas, que vous allez faire ici. "Mains qui s'étreignent ne pèsent rien", me disait Eluard autrefois avant quelque combat. Simplement et sincèrement à vous, en ce combat douteux mais qui doit être mené." Une bien mystérieuse affaire, avec un émissaire et des lettres de recommandation... René Char replonge en pleine Résistance. En février 1966, il avait composé avec Picasso, une affiche-poème à ce sujet, "La Provence point Oméga" : "Que les perceurs de la noble écorce terrestre d'Albion mesurent bien ceci : nous nous battons pour un site où la neige n'est pas seulement la louve de l'hiver mais aussi l'aulne du printemps. Le soleil s'y lève sur notre sang exigeant et l'homme n'est jamais en prison chez son semblable. À nos yeux ce site vaut mieux que notre pain, car il ne peut être, lui, remplacé." Mais le poète perdit ce combat-ci malgré l'assistance de son jeune ami, puisque les missiles nucléaires furent effectivement installés au plateau d'Albion de 1967 à 1999..

        The Fixer

      New York: FSG, 1966. First edition of the author's fourth novel that went on to win the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine price clipped dust jacket that shows light wear to the spine. Signed by the author on the half title page. Published by FSG in 1966, The Fixer was described for its fashionable prose by Elizabeth Harding at Vogue as "[b]rilliant [and] harrowing . . . Historical reality combined with fictional skill and beauty of a high order make [it] a novel of startling importance." And Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything is Illuminated, "[w]hat makes it a great book, above and beyond its glowing goodness, has to do with something else altogether: its necessity...This novel, like all great novels reminds us that we must do something." The Fixer "deserves to rank alongside the great Jewish-American novels of Saul Bellow and Philip Roth" (The Independent).

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT: 1966 HANDWRITTEN NOTES FOR CASEY STENGEL'S HALL OF FAME INDUCTION SPEECH

      (1966). Manuscript. Writing dark and clear. Very Good and exceptional. 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.

The books and dust-jackets are all in very handsome and pleasing condition. FIRST EDITION COMPLETE OF ONE OF THE MOST MONUMENTAL HISTORICAL TASKS EVER UNDERTAKEN, RESULTING IN ONE OF THE GREAT HISTORICAL WORKS EVER PRODUCED. Randolph Churchill, who began this great work with Martin Gilbert in the early 1960’s had the exclusive use of Sir Winston’s letters and papers. The form in which is the work is cast is summed up in the phrase that Randolph Churchill quotes from Lockhart: “He shall be his own biographer.” And the authors present Churchill, a far as possible, through his own words. The first volume covers the years from Churchill’s birth to his return to England from an American lecture tour on the day of Queen Victoria’s funeral, in order to embark on his political career. The final volume spans Churchill’s life from the defeat of Germany in 1945 to his death nearly twenty years later. ‘No statesman of modern times--or indeed of any earlier age--has left such a wealth of personal letters, such a rich seam of private and public documentation, such vivid memories in the minds of those who worked closest to him or were at his side at both historic and amusing moments. Through these materials, assembled by Martin Gilbert during more than twenty years, one can trace Churchill’s moods, aims, actions, hopes and farsightedness. The many-sided nature of Churchill’s abilities, his enormous capacity for work when well into his seventies, his literary achievements, his optimism, his humanity, his humour, his belief in man’s capacity for self-improvement and survival, fill this volume with a rich tapestry of people and events, dominated not by the day-to-day struggle of politics and international conflicts but by an abiding sensitivity. Randolph Churchill died just after the second volume of this massive work was produced and Martin Gilbert continued the writing . He is one of Britain’s most distinguished historians. Following Randolph’s death in 1968 he was appointed the Official Biographer. During the twenty-five years spent on the biography, which reached completion in 1988, Mr. Gilbert wrote many other books on modern European history including AUSCHWITZ AND THE ALLIES, THE HOLOCAUST, and THE SECOND WORLD WAR as well as serving as editor of thirteen volumes of Churchill documents. The eight volume work offered here has been hailed as “ stupendous achievement...of immense and permanent value.”

Notre exemplaire comporte également de légères différences dans la découpe des profils et surtout dans l'ordre dans lequel ils seront finalement placés. Il est enrichi d'un bel ENVOI autographe signé de Leo Lionni au peintre et illustrateur Jean-Michel Folon, son épouse la peintre et illustratrice Colette Portal et leur fils, leur présentant "cette première épreuve". Enfin, l'exemplaire est signé et daté en bas du dernier profil. Une crise de donjuanisme de l'illustrateur célèbre pour son livre "Petit-Bleu et Petit-Jaune" et de nombreux autres livres pour enfants. Exemplaire très particulier, de très belle provenance et en bel état..
