        De Kafka à Kafka

      First Edition published only in paperback and for which he was not fired large paper copies of a press service. Touching and valuable autograph dedication signed by the author to his sister Marguerite glued on a card on the first guard: "Dear Marg, this book is not a book but if you put it in those dark days, my faithful, my deep affection. Maurice. " Envelope bearing the address of Marguerite Blanchot written by his brother Maurice glued on half-title page. Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relationship. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. A trace of marginal fold in the first flat foot. Nice copy. Gallimard Paris 1981 11x18cm broché

The book is in the form of an Italian antique geometry exercise notebook, with 16 black and white reproductions, handwritten text and whiteout pasted over arcane mathematical formulae.

Recently acknowledged by among others the Guggenheim Museum in New York, she is now being viewed by some art historians as "incredibly original" and "one of the great photographers of the 20th century."

        Studley Royal Print Folio

      New Arcadian Press 1981 - Subtitle: 'STUDLEY cannot fail of striking the spectator'. Thirty seven colour lithographs by Patrick Eyres (texts) and John Tetley (images) in hand-bound embossed folio (455 x 330 mm). Edition of 100 - this copy is no. 20. Signed in black ink by both authors. The folio comprises text and image documentation of the Augustan garden that encompasses the ruins of Fountains Abbey. Fifteen landscape images by Tetley (using a mixture of drawing, etching and photography) and 22 poem-texts serve as a discourse not only on the pastoral 18th century garden (now restored) - but also the darker past of the garden: the feudal abuse of the estate workers, for example. Eyres¿s texts are largely compiled from 18th century sources, particularly from the estate archives' correspondence accounts. New Arcadian Press (publisher of New Arcadian Journal) is dedicated to landscape theory - this being their most substantial and rarest production. Condition: minor bumps to corners of hardcover folio resulting in some small scuff marks; minor toning to fabric boards; contents clean and fresh with minor curling at the edges due to the nature of the case and minor yellowing to the outer edges of occasional pages. Near fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Winston S Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 2, The Wilderness Years 1929-1935

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1981. First edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good . This is the U.S. first edition of Companion Volume V, Part 2 of the Official Biography of Sir Winston Churchill. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. The Companion volumes for Volume V of the Official Biography are perhaps the most keenly sought and most prohibitive to acquire of all Official Biography volumes. The British and U.S. first editions saw just a single printing and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many first edition Official Biography sets will forever do without. The British first editions were bound in solid red cloth. The U.S. editions were published using British sheets, but more elaborately bound, with tan linen spines over blue buckram boards with blue spine title panels printed in red and gilt. The bindings also feature head and foot bands and vertical red transition rules between the tan linen and blue buckram. This U.S. first edition of Companion Volume V, Part 2, is in near fine condition in a very good dust jacket. The binding is immaculate - clean, tight, and square with no discernible wear. The only flaws we find are a trivial wrinkle to the binding cloth at the head of the front hinge - perhaps a binding flaw, perhaps a tiny bump. The contents are bright and crisp, the volume clearly unread. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. We note a light, .75 inch pen mark at the top edge near the spine (clearly a stray pen rather than a remainder mark). The dust jacket is bright and complete, with no losses and retaining the original front flap price. There is some incidental soiling at the hinges, flap folds, and upper rear face, modest wrinkling to the bottom edge at the spine and front face, and .25 inch closed tears at the spine ends and bottom edge of the front face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e2.
