Plan de St Gillain

Authors

Saint-Ghislain (Hainaut)

Description
Plan manuscrit 475 x 678 mm, à la plume, crayon et aquarelle, dessiné sur papier, liseré à l'encre brune. Le plan est légendé le long de la marge de gauche. Les détails sont précis: remparts, routes d'accès, rivières, moulin à eau, magasin à poudre etc. Traces d'un faux-pli, quelques légères déchirures marginales, quelques petites taches d'encre marginales Saint-Ghislain se situe à proximité de la capitale du Hainaut et sa pos ition sur la Haine lui confère une importance stratégique. Albert de Bavière fera construire des fortifications autour de la ville dès 1366. En 1655, la ville fut assiégée et prise par les troupes françaises sous la direction de Turenne et La Ferté. En mars 1657, la ville retombe aux mains des espagnols. En 1677, Vauban reprend la ville mais suite au Traité de Nimège, Saint-Ghislain se retrouve dans le giron des Pays-Bas espagnols non sans avoir été détruite par les Français avant leur départ. Ce plan est légendé "La ville de St Gillain avec les desseings pour la fortifier" mais rien ne permet de distinguer ce qui a déjà été réalisé de ce qui est en projet. Certains bastions mentionnés sur ce plan existaient déjà lors de la prise de la ville par Vauban en 1677. Tout laisse à penser que ce plan date des années 1670.

Corrected Typescript of an Essay on Tom Dooley, 10 pages, 1987

Authors

Paul Theroux

Description
Heavily annotated and corrected throughout by the author and apparently unpublished. Tom Dooley - "The nearer (sic) I have ever come to believing in a hero in high school" (sic) - was a doctor and highly respected officer in the U.S. Navy, from which he resigned in 1956 following allegations of being homosexual. He devoted the rest of his life to charitable works in Laos and Vietnam although he was also reputed to be working with the CI A, but evidently not as an agent. A life-long Roman Catholic, he was visited by Cardinal Spellman a few days before his untimely death from a malignant melanoma in 1961. A subsequent move for his sanctification was not successful. Signed and dated by the author at the top of the first page.

Four typed letters signed to S.J. Perelman, five pages, 24 Russell Square, London, WC1, 1946 - 1961.

Authors

T.S. Eliot

Description
A fascinating series of - to all intents and purposes - fan letters to one of Eliot's favourite comic writers (a form in which TSE himself occasionally excelled, and one for the most illustrious exponents of which he felt a profound admiration). The earliest letter, addressed to "Mr Perelman" and signed in full, inquires about the failure of delivery of one of Perelman's books - presumably the first of the many that Eliot refe rs to in a later letter: "I am proud to be the possessor of so many autographed presentation copies of Perelman" - and with the intriguing autograph subscription "Don't forget the trip down the Mississippi in 1948." The second letter opens: "This has been a great disappointment. After following your progress towards London the long way around threading your way among crocodiles, gorillas, dark-skinned political enthusiasts and enemies of American capitalism, I disappear from London and return to find you come and gone." The tone of the later letters (to "Sid," and signed "Tom") is relaxed and bantering and reflects the maturity of a relationship - like that with Groucho Marx - from which Eliot drew immense pleasure. In excellent condition

Typed letter signed to Father Martin Jarrett-Kerr, two pages, Faber and Faber, 24 Russell Square, London, WC1, 15 December 1960

Authors

T.S.Eliot

Description
1. A fascinating letter (approximately 500 words) discussing the aftermath of the Lady Chatterley obscenity trial and Eliot's views on D.H. Lawrence. Eliot opens by expressing his pleasure to hear that the S.C.M. Press is to reprint Jarrett-Kerr's D.H. Lawrence and Human Existence (published under the pseudonym of William Tiverton) to which Eliot had contributed the preface. He goes on in greater detail about 'immoral' literature which he generally condemns (particularly Lolita and By Love Possessed) while exonerating Lawrence to the extent that he "at least had a very serious and laudible (sic) intention ... though I am sure I should not have liked the man." Punch holes to margin, else in excellent condition.

Three typed letters signed. Hartford, Connecticut, 1946-7.

Authors

Wallace Stevens

Description
1. STEVENS, WALLACE. Typed letter signed to William York Tindall, one page, Hartford, Connecticut, 30 August, 1946. To the well-known Columbia academic and critic, declining an invitation to do some unnamed literary task, and commenting on his trip to Hershey, Pennsylvania (home of the chocolates) in the previous September, when he "had myth pretty constantly in my mind ... it was impossible to be in the place without the feeling that one was in a laboratory in which a myth was in process ... the personal trolley system, the Spanish hotel, the Italian recreation palazzo and the really splendid theatre with electric stars twinkling in the ceiling are perfect instances of what knocks myth into a cocked hat; only, actually, the myth is getting the better of them." A lovely example of Stevens' imagination at work. STEVENS, WALLACE. Typed letter signed to William Cole, one page, Hartford, Connecticut, 2 April, 1947. Stevens responds to Cole's request, as publicity director of his publishers Alfred Knopf, that Life magazine carry a feature about Stevens. He hates the idea: "when a man in a large office permits the sort of thing that Life is thinking of ... his associates take it for granted that he is promoting himself and the whole thing tends to alienate them. I cannot think of anything more imprudent and will have nothing to do with it. I could say a lot more but no is enough." A further paragraph has a request that six more copies of Transport to Summer be sent to him. STEVENS, WALLACE. Typed letter signed to William Humphrey, one page, Hartford, Connecticut, 14 January, 1947. Stevens responds to Humphrey's letter of January 8th, and declines - "You cannot seriously expect me to do as you ask" - the suggestion that he buy the 22 year-old would-be writer a farm, and support him while he wrote short stories, in return for a never-ending supply of food. Stevens thinks it a seriously misguided project: "there doesn't seem much chance for you as a writer if you are going to engage in farm work. I am sorry that I don't have the answer." Published only in The Wallace Stevens Journal, Spring, 1994. Humphrey did in fact become a successful writer. His first novel, Home from the Hill, was published in 1958, and Alfred Knopf called it the finest novel ever to come out of Texas. His next book, written in Italy, was The Ordways, which was reprinted six times, and numbers of his short stories appeared in The Sewanee Review and Accent.

Virginia Woolf

Description
1. Whilst it may be pushing it to describe the recipient - the Italian feminist, novelist, poet, literary critic, journalist, political activist and campaigning lesbian - as the Italian Virginia Woolf, it is a temptation I find myself unable to resist. Comments graciously on an article on Orlando written by Aleramo and sent to Woolf and the recipient's willingness to receive one of Aleramo's own books which, despite her scanty I talian, she feels sure she will enjoy. Approximately 150 words, signed in full, neatly folded four times, but in excellent condition.
