        The Silent Cry [Signed 2x] [Ma'en Gannen no Futtoboru]

      Tokyo: Kodansha International Ltd. [Printed in Japan; Distributed in the US by Harper & Row], 1974. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first edition, first printing, in a Fine dust jacket (priced at $10.00; with a tiny linear indentation to the upper and lower left extremities of the front panel near the spine, modest pushing to the rear flaps upper edge, and the barest touch of age toning to the white rear panel and flap edges), SIGNED TWICE BY KENZABURO OE on the title page, once in Japanese characters, and once in English characters (and with a small Japanese character below Oe's signature); text in English. First published in Japan and there titled "Ma'en Gannen no Futtoboru" (1967), the novel centers on a man, Mitsu, whose younger brother's return from America saves the protagonist from drowning in the flood of disasters which have beset him. Mitsu's best friend has just committed suicide, and his wife has given birth to a deformed baby -- which tragic event sends her on the path to alcoholism. At the younger brother's instigation, the family then leaves the city to start a new life, returning to its ancestral village and to its ancestral past whereupon past and present interweave in their lives. Kenzaburo Oe won the 1994 Nobel Prize in Literature as an author "who with poetic force creates an imagined world, where life and myth condense to form a disconcerting picture of the human predicament today". In his speech presenting the Prize to Oe, Professor Kjell Espmark, Member of the Swedish Academy, used "The Silent Cry" as the primary exemplar of Oe's work and as a springboard to discuss Oe's other books. Signed copies of this important work are quite scarce and are remarkably so when in a condition as nice as is this copy. A Fine, Superior, copy of a work which significantly contributed to Oe's winning the Prize, SIGNED TWICE BY KENZABURO OE. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

Louvain & Paris, 1974] ?Yet another way that scholars encountered the S(ecretis) [S(ecretorum) was through a florilegium or compendium (i.e. a collection of brief extracts) of Aristotle?s books. These provided an easy way to access Aristotle?s philosophy as well as to dress up a written composition or a sermon with quotations from his work. Several compendia containing the SS were already available in the thirteenth and early fourteenth century, the most popular and well known of which was the Parvi flores. This is a large collection of sententiae of which was the Parvi flores. This is a large collection of sententiae taken from school texts that was put together in its current form in the years on either side of 1300 by a Franciscan, Johannes de Fonte, during his tenure as lector in theology in his order?s convent in Montpellier. John states in his prologue that his work is intended to provide assistance ?as much for preaching to the people as study of the arts.?

        ?Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons? in Physical Review, 125 Issue 3 pp. 1067-1084, 1 February 1962

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Murray Gell-Mann?s "Eightfold Way" paper, a work that "brought order out of the chaos created by the discovery of some 100 kinds of particles in collisions involving atomic nuclei" (nobelprize.org).   "During the 1950s, discoveries of new subatomic particles were proliferating so quickly such that scientists spoke of a "particle zoo." Gell-Mann turned his attention to some particles that behaved particularly strangely. He proposed a new quantum property of particles he called the "strangeness number." While studying particles, he found even more general characteristics that allowed him to sort them into eight "families." He called this grouping the eightfold way, referring to Buddhist philosophy's eight attributes of right living. Then he found that the eightfold way could really best be explained by a particle, undiscovered as yet, that had three parts (hadrons), each holding a fraction of a charge. He called them "quarks" with a nod to James Joyce, whose novel Finnegan's Wake contains the passage: "Three quarks for Muster Mark!" Fractional charge seemed an outrageous suggestion at first, but proof came for his theoretical quarks in 1974" (pbs.org).  In Physical Review, 125 Issue 3 pp. 1067-1084, 1 February 1962.  CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to.  Very slight and minor crease to the rear lower corner, otherwise near fine condition in every way.

Kitai explained to me that Ihei Kimura - at the time Japan's best-known photographer - had personally promised to sell 500 copies of the book. Kimura's untimely death as the book went to press undid any chance the young publisher had to recoup his money. (Parr / Badger, v1, 297).

        Lettre manuscrite de Valentine Penrose, 1974.

      2 feuilles manuscrites recto/verso, papier à lettres bleu pâle17,5 x 23 cm, adresse de Valentine Penrose (1898-1978) imprimée, à Chiddingly, dans le Sussex. Mais ce courrier a été rédigé à la main depuis l'hôtel Delambre, à Paris, le 6 mai 1974. La poétesse et plasticienne surréaliste avait rédigé en 1962 « Elisabeth Bathory, la comtesse sanglante », un essai sur la comtesse Erzsébet Bathory, surnommée aussi la Comtesse Dracula en raison de ses bains dans du sang de vierges qu'elle fut accusée de prendre. Cette longue lettre, chaleureuse, d'une écriture lisible et dynamique, à l'encre bleue, est très intéressante puisqu'elle porte justement sur Bathory. Elle répond à l'un de ses lecteurs, qui avait des ancêtres Bathory et faisait des recherches sur sa généalogie. Elle y explique avoir mené des recherches dans les Archives de Vienne, avoir trouvé au XVIIIe siècle l'existence d'un Bathory Ferencz, exécuté par décapitation lors d'un complot contre l'empereur, dont elle relate sa passion pour les horloges et pendules. Elle raconte aussi une conversation avec le baron dont les parents possédaient le château de la Bathory, lui expliquant que le majordome, pendant la guerre, s'était réfugié à Vienne en emportant une malle contenant des robes d'Erzsébet Bathory et « même la fameuse résille qui enveloppait ses cheveux », malle jamais retrouvée. Elle encourage le destinataire : « Vous avez raison de vouloir faire vos recherches vous-même, c'est passionnant, et on découvre en soi bien des causes d'être celui qu'on est et pas un autre. » Et lui donne quelques contacts et des pistes de recherches. La lettre est signée. Trace d'une pliure horizontale au milieu des feuillets. Bel état de conservation. (ac) Très bon couverture souple Edition originale Dedicacé par l'auteur
