However, a few years later, Ted did accept my invitation to read at Harbourfront. Shortly after he arrived at the Harbour Castle Westin (where all of the authors at each year’s festival were accommodated) he asked me to go to his room with him as he had a little gift for me. Somewhat sheepishly he handed me the typescript of "Little Whale Song". I say "sheepishly" because he was clearly embarrassed as he explained that he had written the poem for me almost immediately after receiving my request. He told me he pinned the typescript over his desk because he felt sure he could improve upon it before sending it on to me. He told me the poem stared at him guiltily every day for months and months until, one day, he realized my deadline had passed. Then he told me that as he prepared to come to Toronto for my festival, he looked at the poem again [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        La communauté inavouable

      First Edition, one of 57 numbered copies on Arches, ours one of seven trade off with the # 1. Precious autograph signed by the author to his sister Marguerite: "For you, my dear sister, with my deep affection." 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 relations. 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. Cultivating absolute discretion, Blanchot pushed the art of erasing into his handwritten dedications generally brief and almost always written on cards attached to the rare books he offered his close friends. In contrast, in these precious items to his mother and sister, Blanchot offers in all its fragility and reveals a hitherto unknown intimacy. Nice copy with a moving source.

        Weapons Systems and Political Stability - A History

      University Press of America, Inc. / The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, USA, 1983, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, First EditionSize: 8vo - over 7?" - 9?" tall, 1043 pages. Bibliography. List of books and articles by the author. "Carroll Quigley, historian and teacher at Georgetown University, died January 5, 1977, leaving unfinished this manuscript upon which he had been working for the preceding twelve years. His colleagues and friends, upon reviewing the manuscript, decided to press forward with its publication. Although the manuscript is frustratingly incomplete in time sequence - it ends its narrative in the fifteenth century - it carries further toward completion the uniquely anthropological holistic analysis of history which is the theme of his earlier works... Quigley is incredibly successful in abstracting essence from reality - in analyzing mankind's experience in socializing. He describes weaponry as not an end in itself. It is part of a whole in which by far the greater part of persuasion and cooperation is accomplished by institutionalization of ideologies. This book is one of those human efforts which shapes the mind." - from Foreword by Harry J. Hogan. Moderate external wear. Some rubbing to large silver lettering upon front board. Light pencil underlining and marginal lines. Binding tight.
