        De la grammatologie

      Paris: Éditions de Minuit,, 1967. Octavo. Original cream card wrappers printed in black and blue. With the original glassine jacket. Glassine and contents very faintly toned. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to philosopher, writer and translator Roger Munier, "Pour Roger Munier, en signe de sympathie et de complicité". Munier's many translations include Octavio Paz, Roberto Juarroz and Heidegger, with whom he forged a lasting friendship when he stayed in the Black Forest to perfect his German in 1949. Munier later introduced Heidegger to René Char. His obituary in Le Monde described him as a passionate writer and thinker and a mystic, whose favourite mode of expression was the "fragment". His main influence, apart from Heidegger, was Meister Eckhart. Loosely inserted is a typed copy of a two-page letter Munier sent to Derrida in October 1967 in which he thanks him for having sent him the present copy and tells of the uttermost admiration he felt reading De la grammatologie. In this lengthy letter Munier discusses the influence of Heidegger on neo-positivist thought and describes Derrida as the most original and influential thinker of the time. A year later Derrida and Munier both contributed to L'Endurance de la Pensée, a book of collected writings on Jean Beaufret.

Although impresario Norman Granz had officially ended the JATP national tours with his eighteenth in 1957, a decade later he mounted a final farewell tour of North America which featured the Duke Ellington Orchestra with Ella Fitzgerald as vocalist, as well as other jazz luminaries long associated with Granz, including Oscar Peterson and Benny Carter. After the tour Granz was quoted as saying "I'll never do that again", although he did intermittently continue the tradition, reprising JATP at Monterey in 1971, as well as at the Montreux Jazz Festival in the 70's and with final concerts held in Tokyo in 1983, marking the 30th anniversary of the first time JATP had played there. A highly collectible vintage concert program, an historic tour, with the signatures of three jazz luminaries. J1542 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Milne?s ?Winnie the Pooh? in 1924. This September 6, 1967, letter, In full, ?Thank you for your letter. I will do my best to answer your questions. When I was 12 years old my Father read Dickens to us ?" my sister, brother and myself ?" I was the youngest. We had David Copperfield, Martin Chuzzlewhit, Dombey & Son, The Old Curiosity Shop and, of course, Pickwick Papers. I think half of my enjoyment of these books came from my father?s reading ?" Having had experience as an actor he not only read beautifully but also dramatized the parts. For my own reading I had several of Henty?s books and I read R.L. Stevenson when I was 16 to 17. A book that was a great stand by was called ?The World of Adventure? published by Cassells (England) I think about 1890. ?It was given to me when I was 12 and proved to be a mine of information, enjoyment & excitement. Every story was true and well illustrated ?" Shipwrecks and Fires Adventures in the Alps, avalanches polar expeditions, Wild West with Buffalo Bill, battles in India and Zulu land, ballooning, Inventions Mine Explosions ?" For lighter reading I had ?Alice in Wonderland? of which I have never tired, and Randolph Caldecott?s illustrated rhymes ?" at the age of 87, I still enjoy these. ?Since I could hold a pencil I have always drawn pictures mostly of people and was encouraged by both my parents to do so. I do not know much about American writers. I have limited time for serious reading as I still work many hours a day and enjoy it. I think your students may be interested to know that I have written and illustrated two autobiographies. One ?Drawn from Memory? about my childhood, from age 7 to 8, was published by Lippincott in 1957. The other ?Drawn from Life,? published, Dutton, 1959, about my school days, aged 12 to 16, art student, aged 17 to 21. Then my early struggles to earn a living and then my marriage at the age of 24. I hope some of all this will be of interest to your students. Yours Sincerely Ernest H. Shepard.?"
