         From the Jerusalem Diary.

      London: Privately printed,, 1953 & 1949 & 1955. [Together with two copies of:] From the Palestine Diary. Accompanied by two Christmas cards from Mary Gill, featuring designs by Eric Gill and two autograph letters to Austen St Barbe Harrison from Mary Gill and Joanna Hague (née Gill). Together 4 works, small octavo. From the Jerusalem Diary: original orange cloth-backed green boards, title to front cover black; two copies of From the Palestine Diary: one bound for the publishers by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in black quarter morocco, patterned blue and gilt boards, title to spine gilt, fore edge uncut; the other in orange half morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, orange cloth sides, title to spine gilt, top edge gilt. With a folder of correspondence, consisting of two Christmas cards printed on single folded sheets of grey card, and two autograph letters signed. Jerusalem Diary: 10 photogravures reproducing carvings by Eric Gill at the Rockefeller Museum courtyard. Calligraphic bookplate of David Potter, designed by Reynold Stone, to front free endpapers of Jerusalem Diary and one copy of Palestine Diary. Very minor fading to spines and board edges, a little faint foxing to prelims, closed tear to p. 35 of Palestine Diaries, partly affecting text. A very good set. A superb collection of books and letters to the dedicatee of From the Jerusalem Diary, Austen St Barbe Harrison, the architect with whom Gill collaborated on the Rockefeller Museum in Jerusalem (originally known as the Palestine Archaeological Museum), and a close personal friend. Gill had been commissioned to carve ten panels for the museum, "symbolizing the civilizations of that have most affected the history of Palestine, together with the tympanum over the main entrance". Gill also sculpted the fountain in the Central Court and carved the English, Arabic, and Hebrew letters of the inscriptions throughout the building, basing the Hebrew letter design on ancient inscriptions. The collection contains: a) From the Jerusalem diary: First edition, limited issue, number 234 of 300 copies, the dedication copy, inscribed by the editor, "To Austen St B. Harrison, with happy memories, from M.E.G." and with the Gill-designed bookplate of Austen St Barbe Harrison to the front pastedown. The diary of Eric Gill (1882–1940) was published posthumously by his wife, Mary Ethel Gill. b) Two copies of From the Palestine Diary. This title, which was never formally issued, is an earlier version of From the Jerusalem Diary, containing slightly longer text. These two copies are scarce survivals of a project which was abandoned "due to a series of misadventures" which occurred after "the type was completely set and some copies printed off on handmade paper. Delays occurred and cancel title pages were issued... dated 1951 and 1952... only a small number of this aborted edition survive" (Gill). Bookseller G. F. Sims purchased the surviving sheets and had them bound up by Sangorksi in quarter morocco and pre-war decorated boards, as seen in one of these copies, which also has the two cancel title pages bound in at the rear (dated 1951 and 1952), together with leaves bearing the Hague Gill & Davey imprint bound at the rear. Only five copies have been traced at auction. c) A folder of correspondence from Mary Gill to Austen St Barbe Harrison: Christmas Greetings from Mary Gill. Pigotts, 1955, featuring a photo of Eric Gill's carving of The Good Samaritan (1938) for Coventry Hospital, which was bombed in 1941; Christmas Greetings from Mary Gill. Pigotts, 1960, featuring an Joseph and the Child on the front cover, with an autograph letter signed from Mary Gill, dated 21 December 1960 ("I feel very much immersed in our industrial world - of 1960 - with its noise, commercialism - and dangers... I know Eric would have hated it!"); and autograph letter signed from Joanna Hague (one of Gill's daughters, who married René Hague, Gill's partner in his printing shop, Hague & Gill), dated 25 July 1961, informing Austen St Barbe Harrison of her mother's death on 22 March that year: Joanna explains the delay in writing to him ("I couldn't find your address among Mother's papers, but Bernard Wall... was able to give it to me... I don't think he knew what a close friend you were").

      One leaf of thin writing paper, 17.9 x 11.5 cm. Thin gray-black fountain pen writing on both sides. Signed 'Vidia [Naipaul]' and dated 'University College / Oxford./ January 22, 1953. 21 lines of text. Horizontally folded and a bit creased.l Very early letter from the Trinidad-born author Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul (born August 17, 1932), when he was a young student at Oxford, gradually overcoming a deep depression. His first story was published in 1955. In 2001 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. This letter invites Frank to the readings of the Martlets, an intellectual students organisation. The various events are listed, including a lecture on Martial. Naipaul ends with the question: 'By the way, what is a good book to read for the social & literary background of French Classical Drama?'

Bousquet (Docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"), économiste de l'école de Pareto et Schumpeter, mais également islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje, professeur aux facultés d'Alger puis de Bordeaux. Peu après sa thèse, il participa à la mission de la SDN pour la restauration financière de l'Autriche.Georges-H. Bousquet résumait ainsi ses travaux en Islamologie (dans les mélanges qui lui furent consacrés dans les Cahiers Pareto en 1965) : "Très en gros, on pourrait dire à ce sujet que je suis parti intellectuellement de la Loi rituelle, morale et juridique de l'Islâm (fiqh) et ai essayé de voir dans quelle mesure cette étrange casuistique (dont j'ai traduit de nombreux textes et dont j'ai exposé les règles dans divers ouvrages) est appliquée, ou non, dans les sociétés musulmanes d'Afrique du Nord surtout (mais également en Indonésie). En particulier, mon attention s'est portée sur le rituel ('ibâdates) presque toujours systématiquement négligé par mes prédécesseurs". Français
