    • Note Bibliografiche: 4to. English manuscript in black felt-tip pen on paper. 10 pp. Together with two copies of a typescript with corrections. An excerpt from Henry Miller's 1979 publication "Joey. A Loving Portrait of Alfred Perlès Together With Some Bizarre Episodes Relating to the Other Sex" for Irving Stettner's Stroker Magazine, where it appeared under the final title "Vienna and Back", rather than "Love and Sex", as suggested by Miller in the manuscript. In the autograph note in the margin of the first page, Miller explains to his secretary Sandy: "I cut this out of 'Joey' and sent it to Stettner for his ... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 8vo. 4 pp. on bifolium. In French. Intriguing letter to an unnamed recipient, offering an assessment of the Allied Powers' submarine fleets as opposed to those of the Axis Powers and their importance for maritime warfare in World War I. Louÿs first quotes a list from Raoul Testu de Balincourt's famous almanac "Flottes de combat", dated 1 June 1914, and explains why the Ottoman and Austrian fleets may be ignored. According to his assessment, the German fleet lacked "dreadnoughts to protect their ensign" and thus, at this point, "no German nor Austrian vessel can navigate (steam, sail, or arm... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 12mo. Together 2¼ pp. on bifolia. Both to Jules Verne's younger sister Anna. The earlier letter from 30 December 1901 contains New Year's wishes, news about Jules Verne's health, and an invitation to visit him and his wife Honorine in Amiens: "Nous te renvoyons nos vœux, pour cette nouvelle année 1902 dans laquelle je vais achever ma soixante-quatorzième ! Mes yeux sont toujours dans le même état et je ne me déciderai à subir l'opération que le jour où ce sera absolument nécessaire.

    • Note Bibliografiche: 4to. 1 p. To general Philippe Pétain (1856-1951), without being formerly acquainted, expressing his great appreciation. Pétain, he writes, had been a source of encouragement for Daudet in a decisive phase of his work on George Clemenceau ("La vie orageuse de Clemenceau", Albin Michel, 1938), because Pétain embodied the same strength and vision that had fascinated Daudet in General Charles Mangin's counter-offensive (at Méry-Courcelles in 1918). Daudet is concerned for Pétain's health; he sees the war with Germany as inevitable and stresses that France would have urgent need of Pétain at thi... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 4to. 4 pp. on 3 ff. To the fellow musician Frederick Allan Wilshire (1868-1944), remembering times spent together in 1914, and with news since then. Dale's wife has passed away, and he himself has moved back to his native Weston-super-Mare: "At long-last I have 'got-down' to do that which I have not once but a dozen times wished, attempted ... yes, actually started to do ... To send you a line. Now, it is I read (in the 'Evening World', which seems to claim you as a bit o' property!) of MARY.

    • Note Bibliografiche: 4to. 3 pp. on bifolium. With autograph address. In French. Beautiful juvenile letter to his half-brother Alphonse, thanking him for a "beautiful edition of Juvenal" and promising to study so as to achieve good grades. Baudelaire, then a 12-year-old schoolboy at the Collège Royal de Lyon, had received gifts and awards for his good performance, although he must "shamefully admit" that he "obtained these advantages without much effort". Therefore, he promises to improve: "this year I want to cram heavily so that if I do not succeed, I shall have nothing for whiich to blame myself". He describe... continua a leggere

Sewn. Entitled "History of the life of the great Genie of Bac Ninh ong Thanh Dong, commonly known as Thánh Gióng, or in characters as Dông Thiên Vuong", the manuscript describes eight episodes from the Thánh Gióng legend in idiosyncratic French. The first and longest part is a rendering of the core story of the hero's victory over an invading Chinese army as a three-year-old child: "Le Roi de Hung Vuong envoyait ses ambassad... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 4to. 1½ pp. Highly interesting letter that is part of an affair surrounding the admission of a member of the House of Hénin and courtier of the Marquise de Pompadour to the Order of Malta. Apparently, the bailiff of Saint-Simon, a cousin of the Duc de Saint-Simon and unquestionably a political enemy of the Marquise, tried to prevent the desired admission of Hénin. The Marquise immediately put pen to paper and intervened on behalf of her courtier, casting doubt on the credibility of the detractor. The letter contains "two reflections" on the matter; it accompanied a further letter to a high-... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: Small folio. ½ p. on bifolium. With autograph address. Mounted in papered frame (357 x 246 mm). In Italian. Rare letter to King Charles IX of France, referring to a previous audience of Charles's ambassador to the Holy See, Charles d'Angennes de Rambouillet, archbishop of Mans. The topic of the long audience had been the "preservation" of unspecified help that the Pope "willingly brought to the King", most likely reinforcements to the Catholic army in the French Wars of Religion. Pius announces that d'Angennes will write the King in detail and that his nuncio in France will ask for an audie... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: 4to. 3 lines on vellum. Beautiful autograph on the last page of a copy of a contract with the tax stamp of the generality of Bordeaux (fol. 1r). Montesquieu probably annotated and signed this document, originally drawn up on 5 May 1712 in Castiers, in his role as président à mortier of Bordeaux, confirming that he had "received the sous and taxes of the present contract" and "canceled the third": "J'ai reçu les sols et rentes du present contrat et ai quitté le tiers". - Montesquieu had inherited his title, a large fortune and his office in Bordeaux from his uncle Jean-Baptiste de Secondat i... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: Small 4to. 4 pp. on bifolium. This beautiful manuscript corresponds with pages 17 (3rd paragraph) to 24 (1st line) of the 1777 publication of Mirabeau's defence of instrumental music, "Le lecteur y mettra le titre". Published anonymously and giving London as a fictitious place of printing, Mirabeau was previously identified as the author of the text based on two letters. The manuscript in Mirabeau's hand confirms his authorship beyond any doubt. - The text was written in Amsterdam, just before Mirabeau's arrest and four-year imprisonment in Vincennes, under the impression of a performance o... continua a leggere

Murray: "You are now thinking, I hope, of your arrangements for coming to the south in the course of the long vacation.
