Er machte unermüdlich Skizzen, hielt sein Denken und Fühlen in Notizen fest, er war Performer, er war Filmer. Klaus Lutz war auf besondere Weise ein Universalkünstler.

        Correspondance manuscrite complète d'Henry Miller avec Béatrice Commengé EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Pacific Palisades |(CA): S.n, 1976. Fine. S.n, Pacific Palisades (CA) 1976-1978, 23 pages A4. - Autograph manuscript signed, written with black markers, red, green, purple and blue printed on recovered paper, with many additions, corrections and deletions. 241 pages, including 238 foliated and 3 unnumbered, variable formats, mainly 4to and 8vo, single-sided sometimes with annotations or collages on the back, under cover salmon with title and autograph to the editor Alex Grall and black shirt with autograph title tag signed a second time contreplat. Perforated sheets with eyelets. Complete manuscript of the first version of Baroque Love, written between December 18, 1969 and June 16, 1970, and published in April 1971 at René Julliard. The book, first in a sentimental trilogy that will continue Are there a doctor in the house? and L'Angevine, is as a diary. Its main theme, love, is one of the author's favorite subjects. The narrator, who tells her passionate affair with a woman mourns the death of his daughter, plays with the codes of the novel, in a truculent and sharp tongue. Need I remind you that the works of René Fallet, marked by Rabelais, Molière or Marcel Ayme, inspired by their ornate style, the movie Michel Audiard, René Clair and Jean Girault? This manuscript, offered by René Fallet to the editor Alex Grall, can not be considered as a simple script. This is much more of a plastic creation that mixes visual games, word games, collages and sketches (flowers, naked women, grotesque heads), composed in color on a multitude of recovered paper. Indeed, Fallet has collected many sheets of letterhead (ORTF or Belgian Radio and Television, French Communist Party, Editions Denoël or Gallimard, Depeche TV, Cycling Mirror, The Team, First National City Bank, French Corporation Mythology Intercontinental Hotel Düsseldorf national railway Company of Belgium, and other Ministry of social Affairs) that it uses as support for his manuscript, creating a graphic and dynamic effect. He also wrote on the back of advertising leaflets (liquid dish Paic, Kleenex tissues), original press photographs (Paris-Roubaix the peloton in amateur cycling, table Wesselmann amateur nude women!), Operating photographs films (Fahrenheit 451 by François Truffaut with Julie Christie and Oskar Werner), from book covers (the Milanese killed on Saturday from Giorgio Scerbanenco, SAS Gérard de Villiers, They only think that Georges Wolinski), covers discs (Let it be Beatles), of images from erotic magazines or news drawing boards (Jean-Jacques Sempé). It enriches all of collages - "The French student reads a lot Camus" - without forgetting to install several portraits of himself, including an original photograph with Georges Brassens and a notable portrait naked! The whole forms purposely joyful picture, juicy and caustic popular culture at the turn of 1960 and 1970. For Fallet, colorful character saying "anarchist wiper trend, from left to right", takes pleasure in diverting with humor archetypes of modernity (the pin-up, the housewife, the ideal couple, sports, etc.), in a move that is reminiscent of some contemporary artistic movements ( Pop Art, New Realism). The manuscript presents important variants with the completed text. From a structural point of view, firstly, Fallet having changed the cutting of his hundred six chapters, which are then organized into three parts in the published version. From a narrative point of view, on the other hand, since the author plays with the first names of his characters, each of which is named in several ways: for example, the husband of the heroine sometimes named Jean-Louis, Jean-Claude manuscript become thereafter. Moreover, Fallet reserved its margins in order to register his corrections but also to number the lines and especially to indicate the date of writing of each passage: so we can follow every day from 18 December 1969 to 16 June 1970 advanced masterly of his writing. The last leaf, not folioté, consists of a list of excerpts reviewed. Finally, the manuscript reveals that the inspiration for this story of passionate love is none other than Mette Ivers, illustrator and work with which Fallet also Sempé wife, whose name comes up very often in the back of the pages or in the margins . Superb manuscript remarkably composed by René Fallet to create a real plastic object. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Superbe ensemble complet des 17 lettres autographes signées d'Henry Miller et adressées à l'écrivain Béatrice Commengé, auteur notamment de Henry Miller, ange, clown, voyou et traductrice de nombreuses œuvres d'Anaïs Nin. On joint une enveloppe autographe adressée par Henry Miller à Béatrice Commengé et une lettre autographe signée d'Anaïs Nin à Béatrice Commengé. En 1976, Béatrice Commengé, alors jeune étudiante en lettres, entreprend la rédaction d'une thèse consacrée à Anaïs Nin et Henry Miller. Depuis son village périgourdin, elle écrit à l'une et à l'autre. Nin, très souffrante, regrette de ne pouvoir l'aider. Miller, par contre, se laisse d'abord séduire à l'idée d'échanger avec une habitante de Domme, village dont il avait autrefois célébré la beauté dans Le Colosse de Maroussi. Très rapidement, impressionné par la perspicacité et le style de l'étudiante, il engage avec elle une correspondance qu'ils entretiendront jusqu'à ce que, deux ans avant sa mort, la vue d'Henry Miller se dégrade définitivement et l'empêche de lire et d'écrire. À cette époque, Miller, âgé de quatre-vingt-cinq ans, vit presque reclus à Pacific Palisades en Californie, rejetant l'american way of life et ses illusions, redoutant les trop fréquentes sollicitations. Mais le vieil écrivain est très vite charmé par le regard que porte Commengé sur son œuvre : « You are a gem ! One of the very few ''fanas'' to understand me. Merci ! Merci mille fois ! », écrit-il dès la seconde lettre. Une véritable amitié épistolaire se noue alors entre le vieil écrivain et la jeune muse : « I think of you as some sort of terrestrial angel » ; «  what a delight to get a letter from you » ; « Keep writing me, please ! » Dans des lettres passionnées rédigées dans tous les sens, où l'anglais se mèle au français, les mots sont soulignés, les parenthèses et les exclamations abondent et les post-scriptum sont ajoutés dans les marges, Miller se penche sur ses souvenirs et sur son œuvre.  Refusant une correspondance purement universitaire, « To be honest with you, I don't think either A.N. or I, who are naturally very truthful persons, really succeeded with truth as it is conventionally thought of. We are both confirmed «fabulators». » Miller recommande à la jeune femme ses nouvelles lectures et ses vieux amis, « [Lawrence] Durrel is the friend to talk to about me, [...] he knows me inside out » ; [he] is wonderful when you get to know him. éblouissant même » ; « that great master of the french language - Joseph Delteil » ; « Delteil is almost a saint. But a lively one. » ; « Alf[red Perlès] is the clown, the buffoon, who made me laugh every day ». Puis il la félicite d'abandonner son projet didactique au profit d'un « imaginary book about me » et engage une correspondance bien plus intime. Il lui confie ainsi ses étonnements : « Did you read about the french prostitutes protesting and demonstrating in Paris against my receving [the legion of honor] ? They say I did not treat them well in my books. And I thougth I had ! ! ». Il partage ses gouts littéraires : « I prefer the Welsh. They are the last of the poets ». Il met également en garde la future traductrice d'Anais Nin, contre la dualité de son ancienne maîtresse: « She is or was a complete enigma, absolutely dual. [...] Actually, I suppose there is always this dichotomy between the person and the writer », lui confiant ses secrets : « she is slowly dyin (of cancer) she refuses to admit it.  (This is entre nous !) » et révélant ses nouveaux amours :  « I am in love with a very beautiful chinese actress [...]. I seem to go from one to another, never totally defeated, never wholly satisfied. But this is near ''eternal'' love as I've never been. » En effet, malgré son grand âge, l'auteur de Sexus n'a rien perdu de sa passion pour le beau sexe et celui de sa correspondante n'échappe pas à ce Don Juan : « On est curieux - êtes-vous belle etc., je crois que oui. En tout cas je vous prie de m'envoyer une photo, S.V.P. ». Dès la première année de leur correspondance, c'est dans la langue de Molière - et de Sade - que Miller interroge sa « chère Béatrice » : « Est-ce que vous avez vu le film ''L'Empire de [sic] Sens'' qu'on montre en France, mais pas au Japon, ni ici  en Amérique. Les Français prétendent qu'il est un film érotique, mais à mon avis c'est de la pornographie pure ! Il faut m'arrêter - j'attends quelqu'une pour le diner. Une belle ! », puis dans la lettre suivante : « if you have another photo do please send it to me ». Dans les dernières lettres pourtant, le ton s'assombrit avec la santé déclinante de l'écrivain et celle du 25 janvier 1978 est un superbe mais terrible témoignage d'un artiste devenu trop faible pour son art, portant un regard acerbe sur sa condition comme sur celle de l'humanité : « Some days, I bang out a few memorable lines or have great ideas (never realized) for future books » ; « c'est la grand foutaise, if that's the right word » ; « we are about to relive the last day's of Rome. There is no hope - only to rejoice in the end. It needs another order of mankind or replace Homo Sapiens. [] I prefer the life and culture of the Pygmies... » Mais Henry Miller conserve toutefois son humour jusqu'à la dernière lettre qu'il achève abruptement, comme à son habitude, d'un sarcastique et phonétique : « Enof ! » Superbe ensemble complet d'une des ultimes correspondances d'Henry Miller, révélant l'affinité élective entre le vieil écrivain au crépuscule de sa vie et une jeune  romancière naissante, à travers un échange plein de séduction sur les passions toujours ardentes de Miller : la littérature, les amis et les femmes.

        The Aleppo Codex: provided with massoretic notes and pointed by Aaron ben Asher. The codex considered authoritative by Maimonides. Part One, Plates

      Jerusalem: At The Magnes Press, The Hebrew University, 1976. Limited First edition. Hardcover. vg. 1/500. Folio (17 1/4 x 13"). [8]pp (Booklet), [4]pp (Title page in English), 596pp (Plates), [4]pp (Title page in Hebrew). Contemporary 3/4 red calf over morocco, with gilt-lettered leather title label laid on spine. Raised bands. Original publisher's booklet (in English and Hebrew) tipped in. "The Aleppo Codex is the most important surviving manuscript of the Bible that includes vocalization (nikud), accents (te'amim), and the Masorah (the traditional annotation to the biblical text). As its name signifies, it is a bound volume of vellum leaves with writing on both sides. The importance of this manuscript, probably written in Tiberias more than a thousand years ago, lies first and foremost in the fact that it is the oldest existing manuscript Bible and also the most exact. It was written by the scribe Shlomo Ben Buya'a, while the vocalization and accents were added by the greatest of masoretes, Aharon Ben Asher. The Codex was apparently brought from Jerusalem to Cairo, where it was consulted by Maimonides when he compiled the halakhic rules governing the writing of a Bible, and he also referred to it when he was manually copying a Torah scroll. In the late fourteenth century the Codex was transferred from Jerusalem to Aleppo, which local Jewish tradition claims to be the Aram Soba mentioned in the Bible. For centuries it was kept in an iron strongbox opened by two keys, held by two trustees. The box was kept in the ancient synagogue, in the "Cave of Elijah" on a large stone pedestal, under a veil of sanctity and mystery. For instance, anyone obliged by the community's court to take an oath had to swear on the Codex. Aleppo's Jews believed that their community was blessed in consequence of the presence of the Codex, and that once it would be removed, disaster would befall their community. For this reason (with a very few exceptions), the rabbis of Aleppo prevented scholars from examining the Codex. Following the UN resolution of November 29, 1947 calling for the establishment of a Jewish state in part of Palestine, rioting broke out in Aleppo during which Arab rioters caused damage to the Jewish quarter, especially to its synagogues. The Codex suffered damage, and part of it disappeared. Of the original 487 leaves, only 294 remained. Members of the community concealed the surviving sections in various places for about ten years. In 1957 they were smuggled out of Aleppo to Turkey. Thanks to the efforts of Izhak Ben-Zvi, second President of the State of Israel, the Codex was brought to Jerusalem and deposited in the Ben-Zvi Institute on January 23, 1958. Since then it has been the subject of much research and great efforts have been made to bring it to public attention. Several critical editions of the Bible have been published on the basis of the Aleppo Codex. Today the Codex is in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, where it can be viewed in the museum's Shrine of the Book. This complete facsimile edition of the surviving sections was published for the first time by the Magnes Press, in Jerusalem." (From the Publishers).One of 500 numbered copies of which this is No. 84.Minor shelf wear. Ex-library copy with bookplate on inside of front cover, stamp at front wrap of booklet and at both limitation pages. Booklet and titles in English and Hebrew, text in Hebrew. Binding and interior in overall very good condition.

New introduction by M. John Harrison. "Six interweaving tales set in twenty-first century New York, a scene of high unemployment and heartless 'welfareism.'

The result is moving and at times harrowing: a masterpiece." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition, p. 372, "A brilliant work, utterly convincing in its portraits of people trying to get by in a world they are powerless to influence or control. The most eloquent display of the pessimism that became newly acceptable in New Wave SF." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-346. 1974 Nebula nominee. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 66.
