        Le côté de Guermantes II. Sodome et Gomorrhe I

      First edition on ordinary paper, false mention of the sixth edition.Handsome autograph inscription from Marcel Proust to André Salmon.Covers uniformly browned, covers and upper corner of leaf with inscription skillfully reinforced.In his "Souvenirs sans fin [Memories without end]," Salmon recalls the circumstances of this unlikely 'meeting' between two distant literary worlds, the Bohemian world of the Montparnasse crowd and the aristocratic salons that Proust frequented: "I did not actually know Proust, but we corresponded. It was he who made the approach, in the most sublime and unexpected way. I had just given a reading of a realist fable at the Nouvelle Revue Française (in March 1920), called "Le Mannequin d'acajou [The Mahogany Mannequin]," something I never suspected could interest that observer, that fierce admirer - yes, subjugated and mistrustful - of the Duchess of Guermantes, Oriano - a hateful creature worthy of public exposure...Marcel Proust wrote to me straight after the reading of Le Mannequin d'acajou. He also sent me some of his books, with handsome inscriptions. I replied, of course, to Marcel Proust, but I never went to see him. Corresponding with him was important to me, but I could not resolve myself to go and visit him at his bedside... above all, to go and sit among so many others whose delights would never be my own. Obviously, there was no question of meeting Marcel Proust at midnight in the Ritz, where the staff did not know me. Was I wrong? In any case, Marcel Proust bore me no ill-will. He must have understood, guessed, my motives. Not only did he keep writing to me, but he also wrote to others with the intention of helping me."In fact, after the publication of this short story, Proust put forward Salmon's name along with Rivière's for the two Blumenthal scholarships. Unfortunately, Salmon had already passed the upper age limit and it was André Thérive who got the second scholarship. André Salmon would not find out about this support until 1951, when he read Proust's unpublished letters to Edmond Jaloux in the Revue de Paris: "Let me pick out what he was kind enough to write on my account, even in the midst of a burning fever...: 'Your conclusion thus seems to be Salmon, which by the way is the same one I came to with Gide. I find that the reasoning they applied (the prize would allow him to stop doing journalism) is very misguided. Talent is reason enough in itself...'" (cf. A. Salmon, Souvenirs sans fin, pp. 807-809). This work is undoubtedly the second and final work inscribed by Proust to André Salmon, after the first volume of The Guermantes Way, published the previous year.This precious Proustian relic is presented in a black morocco box by Goy & Vilaine, date at foot of spine, lined with khaki sheep.  Nrf Paris 1921 14x19,5cm broché

        Intérieurs modernes par MAM (Croquis, La Gazette du Bon ton, 1921 n°1) - Installation moderne d'un jeune ménage, composition par Lucie Renaudot, exécution de P.A. Dumas (Publicité, La Gazette du Bon ton, 1921 n°2) -

      Set of eight original prints in color, drawn on laid paper, signed lower right and left boards. The boards are introduced by a text signed Jean Cocteau and represent costumes for Shakespeare (two Bergeres Paulina or Time).Original prints made ??for the illustration of The Gazette fashionable, one of the finest and most influential twentieth century fashion magazines, celebrating the talent of creators and artists French burgeoning art deco.Famous fashion magazine founded in 1912 by Lucien Vogel, The Gazette fashionable appeared until 1925 with an interruption during the War of 1915 to 1920, due to mobilization of its editor. She is 69 Deliveries from just 2000 copies and is illustrated including 573 color plates and 148 sketches depicting models of fashion designers. Upon publication, these luxury publications "are for bibliophiles and worldly aesthetes" (Françoise Tétart-Vittu "good Gazette of tone" in the fashion dictionary, 2016). Printed on fine laid paper, they use a typeface created specifically for the magazine by Georges Peignot, the Cochin character, taken in 1946 by Christian Dior. The prints are made with the technique of metal stencil, enhanced color and some outlined in gold or palladium.The adventure began in 1912 when Lucien Vogel, man of the world and fashion - it has already participated in Femina magazine - decided to found with his wife Cosette de Brunhoff (John's sister, the father of Babar) Gazette good tone in which the subtitle is then "Art, fashions and frivolities." Georges Charensol quotes the editor: "In 1910, he observed, there was no truly artistic fashion magazine and representative of the spirit of his time. So I thought of making a glossy magazine with truly modern artists [...] I was certain of success because for any fashion country can compete with France. "(" A great art editor. Lucien Vogel "in literary News, No. 133, May 1925). The success of the magazine is immediate, not only in France but also the US and South America.Originally, Vogel therefore brings together a group of seven artists: André-Édouard Marty and Pierre Brissaud, followed by Georges Lepape and Dammicourt; and finally his friends from the School of Fine Arts as are George Barbier, Bernard Boutet de Monvel or Charles Martin. Other talents come quickly reach the equipped Guy Arnoux, Léon Bakst, Benito, Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, Chas Laborde, Jean-Gabriel Domergue, Raoul Dufy, Edward Halouze Alexander Iacovleff, Jean Emile Laboureur Charles Loupot, Charles Martin, Maggie Salcedo. These artists, mostly unknown when Lucien Vogel appealed to them, will eventually become iconic figures and artistic sought. These are the same illustrators who make the drawings advertisements Gazette.The boards highlight the dresses and sublime seven artists of the time: Lanvin, Doeuillet, Paquin, Poiret, Worth, Vionnet and Doucet. The designers provide for each number of exclusive models. Nevertheless, some of Illustrations contained no real model, but only the idea that the illustrator is done in the fashion of the day.Gazette fashionable is a milestone in the history of fashion. Combining the aesthetic requirement and plastic unit, it brings together for the first time the great talents of the world of arts, literature and fashion and imposed by this alchemy, a new image of women, slender, independent and bold, also driven by the new generation of designers Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Rochas Marcel ...Recovery in 1920 by Condé Montrose Nast, Gazette fashionable modeled for the new composition and the aesthetic choices of the "little dying newspaper" that Nast had bought a few years ago: the Vogue magazine.

        Bonjour Cinema

      Paris: Editions de la Sirene, 1921. First edition. 12mo, unpaginated. Printed wraps. The first edition of this work of film criticism by the filmmaker and critic best remembered today for his film The Fall of the House of Usher. While the importance of the text is widely acknowledged in the history of film criticism, the graphic design of the book by Claude Delbanne - an art deco fantasia on film themes which occasionally verges into concrete poetry - makes it one of the most visually striking film books ever published. Very good or better with a 1/2" closed tear to paper covering the head of spine, which doesn't affect the soundness of the binding.

        Monday or Tuesday

      London: The Hogarth Press 1921 - First edition, one of 1,000 copies. White paper boards with woodcut by Vanessa Bell and brown cloth spine. With 4 woodcuts by Bell. This copy being that of Roger Senhouse, bearing his ownership signature, bookplate, and a small piece of paper with notes in his hand regarding the printing of Monday or Tuesday. About near fine, with light rubbing to boards, offsetting to endpapers and a few spots of foxing. Roger Senhouse was a publisher at Secker and Warburg and member of the Bloomsbury Group. Senhouse noted in pencil on front free endpaper: 1000 copies / "The Prompt Press". Indeed, the Woolfs had this work printed by F. T. McDermott of the Prompt Press in Richmond. Kirkpatrick notes that McDermott gave Leonard printing advice during the infancy of the Hogarth Press. However, notes in Senhouse’s hand on a small piece of paper laid in to this copy tell Leonard’s story from a different angle. An attractive copy with a fantastic Bloomsbury Group association, and humorous insight into the early days of the Hogarth Press. Kirkpatrick A5a. Woolmer 17. Monday or Tuesday is a collection of eight of Woolf's short stories. In addition to the title story "Monday or Tuesday," this volume contains "A Haunted House," "A Society," "The String Quartet," "Blue & Green," and three previously published stories. Monday or Tuesday marked an experimental departure from the realism that hallmarked Woolf's earlier texts Night and Day and The Voyage Out. Similarly, Vanessa Bell's striking black and white woodcut engravings that illustrate this volume are stylistically different than her usually colorful paintings. Although she wrote short stories and sketches throughout her writing career, this is the only collection to be published during Woolf's lifetime. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Verlaine.

      London: Constable & Company,, 1921. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles gilt to spine and front. With the dust jacket. An extraordinary copy, in fine fresh condition, uncut, and the dust jacket only a little toned at spine and around edges, bearing a small few fleck marks, and a few tiny tears and chips along corners and edges. First edition, first impression, of the author's first book, an uncut copy with an exceptional example of the rare dust jacket. Harold Nicolson (1886-1968) was a diplomat and Bloomsbury author, who had married Vita Sackville-West in 1913 (more an "open" than a "lavender" marriage, since although both Vita and Harold continued to have homosexual relationships with numerous different people throughout their lives, they were also devoted to one another and had two sons). He had served in the foreign office during the First World War (being selected to hand the Germans Britain's declaration of war in 1914), and would go on to have a career in the foreign service and in politics. He was encouraged to write by his wife and this biography of the French poet Paul Verlaine is his first publication - the first of several studies of literary figures including Tennyson, Byron, Swinburne and Sainte-Beuve, as well as a political novel Public Faces (1932). Nicolson's Verlaine is rare in the dust jacket - we have never seen another, and can trace none at auction - this copy is almost untouched, and uncut.

On an album leaf. Signed and dated "Liège 30 Mai 1921" in black ink. No compositions by the French violinist Thibaud are recorded. "At 13 his precocious talent took him to the Paris Conservatoire... He formed a trio with his brothers, a pianist and a cellist of ability, but it was as the partner of Cortot and Casals in a famous trio, chiefly active from 1930 to 1935, that he is remembered as an ensemble player... Thibaud never retired; he appeared in London when he was over 70 and gave his last concert at Biarritz ten days before he was killed in an air crash on his way to a concert tour in the East Asia."

        The Spoil Bank Association Limited Cheque Book and Articles of Association.

      (Ditchling: St. Dominic's Press, 1921). Small oblong quarto. 50ff., consisting of printed checks bearing a wood-engraving titled "S. Joseph and S. Dominica in Vesica" by David Jones. The Spoil Bank Association was established at Ditchling in order to hold the land and manage the money of the Guild of S. Joseph & S. Dominic in the early days of the community at Ditchling. The name is derived from a strip mining term, which refers to the pile of refuse created by the excavation of earth materials on a mining site, undoubtedly intentional, given the anti-capitalist views of Gill and Pepler. While documents referencing the Spoil Bank Association have occasionally surfaced, only one endorsed check is recorded, and this is held at Notre Dame. Taylor & Sewell note that Barclay's Bank "refused to cash or negotiate these cheques." It is believed that no more than 100 checks were printed, making this complete and unused checkbook, which contains check numbers B1 - B50, of the utmost rarity. The book retains its plain gray wrappers, and apart from a mild crease down the center, it is about fine. Together with the Memorandum and Articles of Association for the Spoil Bank Association, registered on November 9, 1921. Broadside, folded in eighths. In addition to laying out the founding guidelines of the Association, this document lists the initial subscribers and appoitns Eric Gill, Herbert Joseph Cribb, and Hilary Pepler the first Directors. Fine. (Cleverdon 81; Taylor & Sewell A95).

Notated in black ink on 10-stave paper, "Melodie Trademark No. 0." 4 pp. No date. Some bleeding. Frayed at edges, with slight loss, not affecting music. - The Manger Song of Mary: Folio (343 x 278 mm). Bifolium. Notated in black ink on 12-stave paper, "Monarch Brand Warranted Nr. 3 - Carl Fischer, New York." 3, [i] (blank) pp. No date. Together with: Copyright forms of the Société des Auteurs, Compositeur et Editeurs de Musique (SACEM; French authors' rights society) and cover letter from the Symphony Society of New York to J. T. Roach of the publisher Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge, New York. 1 page. August 2, 1923. On letterhead, typed and signed by the society's manager, George Engles. Engles asks Roach to have the papers signed by the poets. Together with: Two typed letters from Walter Damrosch's office to [J.T.] Roach. Oblong octavo. On stationery with Damrosch's letterhead and signed, "Lillian Day[?]." The first, dated January 3, 1921, is the cover letter to a "corrected copy of M. Widor's song Le Chene du souvenir" (the song is not present). The second, dated November 14, 1921, inquires about royalties Damrosch sent to Camille Saint-Saëns and Ralph Vaughan Williams; the writer wants to adjust Damrosch's French bank account; bank receipt (Morgan, Harjes & Co, Paris), dated July 8, 1921, is attached. Unrecorded and presumably unpublished. The texts are by Henry Rutherford Elliot (1849-1906), a journalist in New York, and Edwin Markham (1852-1940), an American poet. "Laugh it off!" is a humorous song in a popular style; The Manger Song of Mary is a lullaby in a more sophisticated style. The correspondence suggests that both of Vidal's songs were slated for publication by Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge in 1923; the scribal copies were most likely intended as engraver's copies. One of the poets (Elliot), however, was no longer alive; there are no materials in the present collection mentioning his heirs. In any case, the SACEM forms (also Markham's) remained unsigned. The publication stalled, and the songs were apparently never published. A French conductor, teacher and composer, " Vidal is particularly remembered as a fine teacher who was sympathetic to new ideas. At the Paris Conservatoire he taught classes in solfège (from 1894), piano accompaniment (from 1896) and composition (from 1909)... Vidal's most successful compositions were the ballet La maladetta (1893), which had been performed nearly 200 times by 1930, and the light opera Eros." David Charlton in Grove Music Online. Mabel Montgomery Tuttle (born Mabel Chauvenet Holden, 1873-after 1921) studied piano with Theodor Leschetizky and Teresa Carreño....

        A collection of 14 important autograph letters to the German soprano Rose Ader, Puccini's "last love and the only consolation in my life." 30 pp. in total. Written between May 20, 1921 and September 11, 1924, the letters chart the progress of both the couple's love affair and Puccini's final opera, Turandot, which he never completed. Puccini died on November 29, 1924, less than three months after the final letter in this collection was written. With much revealing commentary regarding both the composer's personal and musical activities and offering new insight into his relationship with Ms. Ader....

      May 20, 1921 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, May 20, [19]21, 11:00 p.m. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. Incomplete. With autograph envelope postmarked Torre de Lago, May 21, 1921 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini laments his inability to be near Ader; he cannot go to her without causing a great scandal. He works all day. Only his thoughts of her give him comfort; he kisses her portrait and writes music - presumably his opera, Turandot. "This Turandot is so difficult! Liù is coming along well - it is for you that I am writing it (as I have already told you)..." May 22, 1921 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre de Lago, Sunday, May 22, [19]21, midnight. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. Puccini speaks of seeing Ader in nearby Viareggio, then Milan, but absolutely cannot leave. She should never doubt that, if he could, he would "fly" to her. He tells her not to grieve for him. He is not badly off in his own home, but does not have the freedom he would like. He will write to her if he finds that he must go to Berlin in the autumn. Puccini goes on to discuss several of his compositions: his operatic trilogy, Il Trittico, La Bohème, and Turandot, upon which he is still hard at work. "I received a telegram from Leipzig, where Il Trittico has had great success. [Otto] Lohse conducted Tabarro (Mantel) and Schicchi. Fine director... I am working a lot on Turandot. I read that Busoni's [Turandot] was given in Berlin. I am very pleased with my work. It is you, and my love for you, that encourages me to do well. We hope!... I wish you good luck for [your performance as] Mimi on the 30th. You will be delicious!" June 6, 1921 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, June 6, [19]21. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. With autograph envelope postmarked Torre del Lago, June 7, [19]21 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini has not heard from Ader in two days, but that may be because of a postal strike. He misses her letters; his day is wasted if he does not hear from her. He keeps her photographs in a book between other books near his work table so he can look at them whenever he wants. He especially likes the picture of her as Mimi, and another large one with a veil, which he has cut down to a smaller size. He kisses them many times. He complains of how difficult Turandot is. The previous day was bad, and he couldn't do anything good. Today, things are going better. So is his life, with high and low moments, even with regard to his health. Perhaps he is working too hard; he hardly ever moves, unless it is in an automobile. He concludes with love. "I love you! I kiss your beautiful and savory mouth!" Ca. August 21, 1921 4 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Munich, [ca. August 21, 1921], Midnight. On stationery with the name, Munich address, and emblem of the Regina-Palast-Hotel embossed at head. With several annotations and corrections in Puccini's hand. With autograph envelope postmarked Munich, August 2[1?], [19]21 and Hamburg, August 22, [19]21 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini has just telegraphed Ader; he thinks it best not to write, because the letter might be opened and cause trouble in the future. He has had a tiresome day: tea at the home of the painter [Gerolamo] Cairati, his friend from Milan, and dinner at the usual Odeon Bar with [Riccardo] Sch[nabl] and Mrs. Frigierio, [?]his mother, and her husband, all from Milan. Now he is going to bed. He longs for her. She will be very busy now, preparing to go to Viareggio. He was wrong to tell her not to write, but now it is too late. He received her two telegrams that evening, and he will telegraph her again the following day, requesting an answer, so that he will have news of her each day. The following night he will see Braunfels' opera, Die Vögel, which Walter had told him was very interesting. He expresses his love. "This evening I dined at the usual restaurant, the Odeon Bar... Sch[nabl] spoke a lot about Art ["Kunst"]! I was very bored. The usual violinist played Angelica, Bohème, Butterfly. Now I'm going to bed with Adalina, who is not a woman, but another thing that you know. I think and will think about you, about your beauty, your eyes, your mouth, your hair, your hands, so many of your things so beautiful and dear that I would like to have here close to me!... [In broken German:] Goodbye my pretty Rose, my life, my treasure, I love you with my heart! [In Italian:] Don't laugh!..." September 22, 1921 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, September 22, 1921. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. That morning Puccini felt badly seeing Ader so discouraged and sad. He does not know what to do to make her happy, and grieves over it. She knew his circumstances; he told her everything about himself and hid nothing. He wishes he could surround her with so much care and attention, and give her everything himself, but it is impossible. He leaves her free to decide - not to worry if he suffers. He will suffer whatever sorrow there is for her. He cannot stand knowing her discontented, and does not want her to live a life that she cannot stand. "My life is shattered without you. I already hold you in my heart. You are my last love and the only consolation in my life. But to see you so dissatisfied and sad grieves me and I can sacrifice myself to let you go. But even when [you are] far away, I will not cease to love you - and until death... I adore you and will always adore you, that is certain. Farewell, I kiss your sweetest mouth." October 19, 1921 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Mercaldi, October 19, 1921. Puccini has received two letters from Ader. They were well written, and he understood everything. He had telegraphed her that he was leaving the following day, but instead he will leave on Friday. He hopes to find her letters at the Teatro Comunale. Schnabl has written from Vienna, and will come to Bologna. Puccini himself is very sad because he will not be alone in Bologna. They will go to Rome and then afterwards he will come to Milan in order not to move again. He thinks that his wife is trying to prevent him from being with her. He is going to try to have [Giuseppe] Adami help him see her. He understands that her studies with Bettinelli are going well. He concludes with many loving remarks. "...I curse my life, because it is my Rose I would like near!...You are my poetry, and I adore you, and I would like to see you always and kiss your mouth, so beautiful, fresh, adorable! And instead I am so far away! But there will come a time, I hope, when I can be happy with you? The Mrs. ["Frau"] has never mentioned you, but I know she thinks a lot about this love of mine. I have not been bothered, but I feel that The Mrs. thinks about it, and is going to Bologna so that I don't go with you. It is a little hidden battle. But my Muckili is in my heart and no one can take her away!..." February [?]1, 1922 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Milan, February [?]1, [19]22. On stationery with Via Verdi 4, Milano address embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Milan, February 2, 1922 with Ader's name and St. Moritz (Switzerland) address. Puccini reports that, after a thousand difficulties, Il Trittico has been produced. On the first night, the public was a little cold, but was better on the second. The audience at La Scala is terrible. In Rome he has also had great success with Gilda. He asks why he has not heard any news from her. He was unable to write because he was not well and then he spent the whole day at La Scala. He is a little tired and would like to be in Viareggio where there is sun and quiet. He is sad, and misses her very much. He expresses his love. "...My soul is full of sadness because of you - not through your fault, my poor, sweet one, but because I don't have you and cannot have you as I would like - always with me, or at least nearby, in order to tell you everything in my soul and to find in you that consolation that I need so much! But the world and destiny are against me..." February 4, 1922 2 pp. Small quarto. Dated Milan, February 4, [19]22. On note card with "Ente Autonomo del Teatro alla Scala" printed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Milan, February 4, 1922 with Ader's name and St. Moritz address. Puccini has telegraphed both Hamburg and St. Moritz, but has heard nothing from Ader in several days. He is perplexed. He plans to go to Viareggio towards the fourteenth or fifteenth of the month because he does not feel well in Milan. On the twenty-first he must be in Rome for eight days. [Riccardo] Redaelli found her a very clean pension, which, however, did not have any room. He will have something for her when she arrives. Il Trittico went well at La Scala, Suor Angelica not so well with a soprano from Bologna. He sends kisses. "...Where have you been? O mysterious woman! And what have you done in Berlin? Whom have you seen?... It would be better if you came towards the thirteenth or fourteenth - then [we can be] together [in] Rome, Muckili. Think about it. I want to see you very much, but I am a little perplexed because[?] you [are] mysterious!..." February 1922 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Viareggio, Lunedi [?February] 1922. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. Puccini has just received Ader's two letters. He asks her whether she has seen Ortlieb and whether he mentioned Puccini. He sent telegraphs to Maestro Paolantonio and to Valcarenghi. Hoping to feel better, he took a purge that morning, but feels immensely sad instead. On Saturday his wife, Elvira, and his son, Tonio, will arrive, so Ader should write to Viareggio, post restante. It annoys him that they are coming. He would have wished to have seen her without them there, but patience, always patience. She is in the middle of the festivities and the automobile races. His is mailing this letter registered. He reports that Redaelli has left for Milan. The weather is as gloomy as his own spirits. He laments life without her. He sends kisses. "I don't know what to tell you today! I am not well and I no longer have faith in myself, nor hope in anything. I feel that I am losing you. Life without you is very sad for me. It is as though everything were finished. It would have been better if I had never known you - yes, better for you and for me. But you are young and will have a good life, whereas for me, it will be the opposite... My sky is full of dark clouds! Even Turandot gives me no comfort!..." July 10, 1922 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Viareggio, July 10, [19]22. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Viareggio, July 10, [19]22 with Ader's name and Salzburg address. Puccini has seen [Giulio] Gatti-Casazza, whom Ader met in Vienna, and was unable to obtain anything for her. Gatti-Casazza has no openings for lyric singers, and there much competition among Americans. He very much wishes he could have been of service to her. He has received her letter, and read of her success in Budapest. He was very happy for her. He asks if she no longer goes to the Seeligmans, and for news about an Italian baron (probably Ader's future husband), whom she should not trust. He does not work because he does not feel like it. He has received the third act (presumably of Turandot), but it is still not good. Adami will come soon, and they will correct it. He begs Ader to write to him. She may send her letters to his house, because no one will read them. "...And what news is there of the Italian baron? I would not put too much trust in a man from the South. Be careful!... I think a lot about beautiful times gone by! My Muckili is so far away and life is difficult for us! Then, the usual word: I am old! Truly I am. There are many people here, but they all mean nothing to me. Winter is better. I often see [Angiolino?] Magrini and a few others - no women..." July 23, 1922 2 pp. Quarto. Dated July 23, [19]22. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Viareggio, July 24, [19]22 with Ader's name and Salzburg address. Minor tearing, soiling, and wear; annotations in pencil to upper panel. Puccini has just gotten out of bed; he has been sick with a fever for several days, and feels very weak. He has received all of Ader's letters. If he feels better, he, his son, and Magrini will drive to the Dolomites, then to Munich, and perhaps to Holland. If he is well enough to make the trip, it would be toward the fifteenth or twentieth of August. He has not worked any more on Turandot. He tells Ader that if she wants to be a coloratura, she must have courage. He congratulates her because he knows she has the tenacity and desire to become one. He begs her for news. In a postscript he adds that he has sent her a copy of Madama Butterfly in Italian. "...I have not worked on Turandot any more. I don't feel like it; I don't feel like doing anything. I think that my life is no longer what is was. I am a little sad and also resigned to my destiny. I have a dry heart. I think, though, about all our matters with pleasure and even with nostalgia. If you had been near me I would have had some consolation. But your future with me would have been dangerous..." August 9, 1922 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Catigliano, August 9, [19]22. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Catigliano, August 9, [19]22 with Ader's name and Westerland address. Annotations in German ("Miramar House unknown"). Puccini is staying with Magrini. It was too hot in Viareggio, and there were too many people there. He will, however, return to Viareggio the next day to prepare for his automobile trip. They will probably leave around the fifteenth, and will go to the Dolomites, then to Oberamergau, Munich, and the Black Forest. They propose to arrive in Holland. He is much better since his illness; the last few days in the mountains have done him good. Madame Vezsi wrote him a very kind letter from Berlin. He may be in Munich on August twenty-second, but he does not think they will stay at the Regina because it is too expensive. There are four Magrini people accompanying him on the voyage. He asks for news from her, and sends greetings to Dr. and Mrs. Tony[?]. Puccini also mentions Turandot (which remains unfinished), Manon Lescaut, and Suor Angelica; as well as a disagreement with the publisher Giulio Ricordi regarding a foxtrot (based upon the humming chorus from Madama Butterfly) which had been illegally published by Ricordi's New York branch. "...I always think of my dear and sweet Muckilina with nostalgia... Gilda [Dalla Rizza] wrote me from Buenos Aires that she sang Suor Angelica. Toscanini will give Manon at La Scala this winter. In a few days, I will sign the contract with Ricordi for Turandot, and I think we will reach an agreement on the subject of the Butterfly foxtrot... And what news of yourself? The Baron?... How sweet was Muckilina's mouth! With whom are you in Westerland? With the Seeligmans?..." May 19, 1923 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Vienna, May 19, [19]23. On stationery with the name and emblem of the Hotel Bristol in Vienna printed at head. Manon has been postponed until September, and so Puccini has made his trip for nothing. In three or four days he will return to Viareggio. He thanks her for her letter. He also mentions Turandot, which he still has not completed, and the Austrian composer Erich Korngold. He sends his affectionate greetings. "...To see your handwriting again gave me joy and made me very melancholy[?]. I hope that you are happy. I am returning to my little house in Viareggio to complete the eternal Turandot. I finally have the third act, which is very beautiful. I have seen Maestro Korngold many times, who is a good and fine person. We have even spoken about you..." September 11, 1924 2 pp. Ca. 89 x 138 mm. Dated Viareggio, September 11, 1924. On a notecard with Puccini's name printed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, September 11, [19]24 with Ader's married name ("Gentilissima Signora Baronessa Rosa Trigona") and address. Puccini asks Ader, now married, to forgive him for having shown no signs of life. He complains of a sore throat - surely a symptom of the throat cancer that precipitated his death less than three months later. The upcoming première of Turandot impels him to work. He sends affectionate greetings to Ader and her husband, Baron Trigona. "...I have not been well, and at present my sore throat is bothering me. I must set to work assiduously because in April I will give Turandot at La Scala, and I must finish the opera! I hope that my health improves..." All in Italian (with translations) except for letter no. 4 which is in both Italian and German. All in black or blue ink except for letter no. 2, which is in pencil. Signed variously "Giacomo," "G.P." "G. Puccini," "Muckilissimo," etc., and addressed variously "My good Rose," "My dear Rose," "To my sweet Rose," "My Rose," "My Muckili," etc. With minor defects including occasional wear, soiling, foxing, browning, small tears, etc. In very good condition overall. Rose Ader (1890-1955) made her début at the Hamburg Opera in 1915. She sang at opera houses in Germany, Austria, France, the Netherlands, and Italy, including the Vienna Staatsoper and the La Scala. In 1921 she sang the title role in the German première of Puccini's Suor Angelica in Hamburg, and in La Bohème at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome in 1922. Her repertory included both coloratura and lyric roles. Following her marriage to an Italian baron, she sang under the name Ader-de Trigona. Ader's Jewish heritage forced her to emigrate to Austria in 1933, and then to Italy. In 1949, she settled in Buenos Aires, where she spent her final years as a pedagogue. "Thirty-two years his junior, [Ader] had sung Angelica at Hamburg in February 1921. Schnabl, who produced, found her insufficiently dramatic for the role. Puccini, who attended at least one performance, formed a more positive opinion, although he would later admit that the final scenes were too heavy for her. Photographs were exchanged, and by the spring a love affair had blossomed. Of his many letters to her, known to exist in private hands, only one, dating from May of that year, has found its way into print - an extravagant outpouring of infatuation ('the only woman I love in the world etc')... Yet, as with Wagner and Judith Gauthier, one suspects that the affair was more in the mind than in the flesh. There is no record of secret trysts, of carefully laid plans to elude Elvira's detection." Budden: Puccini His Life and Works, p. 433. The present collection presents an intriguing counterpoint to Budden's contention regarding there being no record of "secret trysts" and/or attempts to elude Puccini's wife Elvira's detection of his infatuation with Ader. As concerns possible trysts, in the letter dated October 19, 1921, Puccini mentions that he thinks that his wife is trying to prevent him from being with Ader and is going to try to have Adami help him see her and, in the letter dated February 4, 1922, Puccini suggests that "it would be better if you came towards the thirteenth or fourteenth" and that they can then be together in Rome, saying that he would like to see Ader very much. As concerns possible attempts to elude his wife's detection, in the letter dated ca. August 21, 1921, Puccini specifically asks Ader not to write to him because the letter might be opened and thus cause trouble; in the letter dated October 19, 1921, Puccini states that he thinks that Elvira is trying to prevent him from being with Ader; and, in the letter dated July 10, 1922, the composer asks Ader to send her letters to his house, because no one [else] will read them if she does so....

(8 pp;. 17x22cm) We have given these documents to Michael Holland, researcher and professor of French literature at St Hugh's College, Oxford, author of several works on Maurice Blanchot Before that say: Essays on Blanchot appeared in 2015 at Hermann. His detailed analysis is forthcoming in Cahiers Maurice Blanchot under the direction of Danielle Cohen-Levinas. We use excerpts from this study to present these previously unknown and unpublished documents.The discretion of Blanchot on his youth and the almost total lack of biographical material forced the few biographers Blanchot many assumptions about the path of the most secret writer of the twentieth century.The school report and other documents in this set and can trace the tuition Blanchot.Holland notes that there "until 1921 Blanchot continued his studies at home, under the guidance of his father, Isidore, literature teacher who offered private lessons to children from wealthier families. [...] The small collection of "Satisfaction Testimonials" and "Honor Citations" signed "Professor / I. Blanchot" are precious and touching record of these years. »Blanchot then made "studies for three years at the College of Chalon-sur-Saône Boys [...] [and] has passed its trough in 1924 and not in 1922 [...] He chose the training provided by Section B (live Latin-Languages) [...] He chose to complete his studies in philosophy class.A school report covering the three years of schooling in Chalon has a very detailed picture of the young student. After a year in which the Second Progress "Good or Very Good student" to "excellent student" can be clearly observed in some subjects [...] Only downside to this brilliant picture: the disease. [...] It is noted that it is the first course that seem to have been affected by this episode. »in the light of these, Michael Holland puts next "Blanchot's career and that of Jean-Paul Sartre, Henri IV to Louis-le-Grand finally came to Ulm Street ENS 1924. Even golf champion, same rewards and same honors, each is an outstanding student. And it is found in Imagination Sartre published in 1936 but began during its preparation Psychology Certificate 1927, the same interest in the ideas of Ribot who sprinkles his essays. [...]Four essays psychology, a philosophy and literature offer valuable insight into what the young Blanchot was able during the year that he was preparing his bachelor's degree. By his comments on the sidelines of essays from Blanchot his philosophy teacher, Mr. Bochot shows that he knew he was dealing with an exceptional mind, sometimes unruly but capable of analysis and critical acute. »Michael Holland then provides a detailed analysis of the various work of Blanchot, including correlated with the writings of Ribot, highlighting the knowledge and early critical young Blanchot. It also notes in these early works the premises of a thought that soon will mark the literary critic of the twentieth century.Here are some excerpts of his work, giving an overview of the quality and interest of the student dissertations Blanchot:"This essay follows closely the argument of the article" The emotional logic "of Th. Ribot published in the Philosophical Magazine in 1904.""The more daring is the claim that the affective similarity is also the basis of some associations of states of consciousness. The "emotional tone" brought by the joy, sadness becomes a center of attention grouping of states of consciousness without rational relationship between them, a pivot around which agitate unexpected groupings. It is the artist who is the first recipient of this analogy sensations that brings such a man born blind to explain the Scarlet comparing it to the sound of a trumpet (eg which originated in Locke and is regularly quoted in the nineteenth century). Rejecting embryological and anatomical explanations for these associations Blanchot says that "the psychological explanation seems the only good", adding: "This way to feel a bit special is not, however, the privilege of a few eccentric or imbalanced, not to mention the fantastic designs or even surprising sentiments expressed some symbolist and decadent, we find even among the people, and perhaps especially among the people, that singular sensibility others cultivate and refine, as a precious rarity " . »"Having concluded that in many cases the cause of our associations is the emotional disposition and not elsewhere, Blanchot goes further: the emotional tone that accompanies associated performances can also strengthen their relationship. Here Blanchot brings in its reasoning author close but different from both Th Ribot. American philosopher William James. ""From here, the idea of" emotional affinity "that connects what comes to mind our current arrangements inspired Blanchot examples more personal (" When we are sad ... The happy man today ... tomorrow ... my enthusiasm bankruptcy of my happiness ") .."Blanchot disputes the Ribot drawing on his personal experience considered equal to everyone. »"Here, as in essays devoted to Th. Ribot there is dissatisfaction Blanchot before the established dualisms, attention to identify a third position that complicates relations. Here it is with the work of Edmond Goblot (1858-1935) Blanchot continued his analysis. »"When studying in La Fontaine's fable, Blanchot says," we must be placed at two points of view. " "Why is this option?" meets his teacher. In literature as philosophy, we can see, the same concern to go beyond simple outlook characterizes the approach of the young student. »"It is in relation to that company as" the old storyteller gauloiseries has remained himself. " From there to suggest that such an example has inspired the novelist Blanchot who will work a few years later, there is only one step. But to understand the young nationalist who will soon (if not already) forge commitments we continue to blame him, it should be noted that what makes La Fontaine really a French poet, is to be "The only perhaps in his time who saw through our forests poor woodcutter all covered with branches," the only one to have found a way under "cold and shiny shell of the words" to trouble the heart by show. In short - and this is evident in all the essays of this period - the concern that animates the young Blanchot, and inspire her pronouncements he will regret later, is deeply human. His teacher asks: "Why do you sacrifice lyricism?". This is because now, for Blanchot, writing is out of the prescribed frameworks, whether moral or aesthetic, and get in front of the crisis, in the 1920s, began to make man the The challenge of complex and formidable powers. »More than relics of his childhood, these documents are a valuable record of the education and training of one of the best minds of our time.

        Le côté de Guermantes II. Sodome et Gomorrhe I

      Nrf. First edition on ordinary paper, false mention of the sixth edition.Handsome autograph inscription from Marcel Proust to André Salmon.Covers uniformly browned, covers and upper corner of leaf with inscription skillfully reinforced.In his "Souvenirs sans fin [Memories without end]," Salmon recalls the circumstances of this unlikely 'meeting' between two distant literary worlds, the Bohemian world of the Montparnasse crowd and the aristocratic salons that Proust frequented: "I did not actually know Proust, but we corresponded. It was he who made the approach, in the most sublime and unexpected way. I had just given a reading of a realist fable at the Nouvelle Revue Française (in March 1920), called "Le Mannequin d'acajou [The Mahogany Mannequin]," something I never suspected could interest that observer, that fierce admirer - yes, subjugated and mistrustful - of the Duchess of Guermantes, Oriano - a hateful creature worthy of public exposure... Marcel Proust wrote to me straight after the reading of Le Mannequin d'acajou. He also sent me some of his books, with handsome inscriptions. I replied, of course, to Marcel Proust, but I never went to see him. Corresponding with him was important to me, but I could not resolve myself to go and visit him at his bedside... above all, to go and sit among so many others whose delights would never be my own. Obviously, there was no question of meeting Marcel Proust at midnight in the Ritz, where the staff did not know me. Was I wrong? In any case, Marcel Proust bore me no ill-will. He must have understood, guessed, my motives. Not only did he keep writing to me, but he also wrote to others with the intention of helping me."In fact, after the publication of this short story, Proust put forward Salmon's name along with Rivière's for the two Blumenthal scholarships. Unfortunately, Salmon had already passed the upper age limit and it was André Thérive who got the second scholarship. André Salmon would not find out about this support until 1951, when he read Proust's unpublished letters to Edmond Jaloux in the Revue de Paris: "Let me pick out what he was kind enough to write on my account, even in the midst of a burning fever... : 'Your conclusion thus seems to be Salmon, which by the way is the same one I came to with Gide. I find that the reasoning they applied (the prize would allow him to stop doing journalism) is very misguided. Talent is reason enough in itself... '" (cf. A. Salmon, Souvenirs sans fin, pp. 807-809). This work is undoubtedly the second and final work inscribed by Proust to André Salmon, after the first volume of The Guermantes Way, published the previous year.This precious Proustian relic is presented in a black morocco box by Goy & Vilaine, date at foot of spine, lined with khaki sheep.  Nrf Paris 1921 14x19,5cm broché
