They practically cover his entire life, and they constitute both working tools and basically a diary (especially volume III). Camus evokes what is happening around him, the life of a writer who also has a family life, his work with Gallimard, his commitments, the development of his works and the difficulties in making everything in his life coexist. In other words, we follow the state of mind of Camus at all different stages of his life.‎

Reference : 58019

‎L'Été. Les essais LXVIII.‎

‎Paris, 1954. Bound uncut with the original printed wrappers, also the back-strip, and with the incredibly scarce original yellow banderole from the publisher with the printes "avis" on the back and "Amour/ de vivre/ nrf" on the front, in a magnificent full very dark green/black morocco with large geometic onlays of green and dark and light olive calf on top of each other. Bright green suede end-papers. Simple gilt title in bold lettering to spine. All edges gilt (singe-leaf gilding). Elegant red super-exlibris stamped to inside of boath boards (upside-down on the back board) and binding signed at the bottom, in gold lettering: C et J.P. Miguet. Housed in a dark green half morocco chemise with green patterned paper and a green patterned paper slip-case with green morocco-edges. Laid in at the front is the original advertisement-leaf from Gallimard. The banderole (which has a small restoration from the verso) has been bound after the front wrapper. Before binding, it has also been kept here and has caused a patch of discoloration to the blank front free fly-leaf. Apart from this one discoloration, the copy is in splendid, completely fresh condition. First edition, nr. 6 of 25 copies on vélin de Hollande Van Gelder (premier papier) of Camus' magnificent and highly influential collection of essays entitled "Summer". <br><br>The essays in "L'été" are devoted to Algiers and represent a very personal side of Camus, who provides a marvelous poetic and humorous picture of the provincial simplicities of Oran and Algiers. For many Camus-devotees, "L'Été" constitutes one of the most beloved works, as it gives the feel of a certain intimacy with the author that few of his other works does. "In "Return to Tipasa", perhaps the most confessional essay in "Summer", which dates from a long trip to Algeria in December 1952, Camus issues his now famous testimony of survival - "In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer" (Hawes: Camus, A Romance, 2009, pp. 181-82). <br><br>It is extraordinarily rare to find a copy with the original publisher's banderole - and also with the original advertisement leaf from Gallimard, on which the prices are also advertised - 3.000 fr. for one of the 20 copies for sale on Hollande (as here), 1.200 fr. for one of the 170 copies on pur fil, etc.‎

‎CAMUS, ALBERT. - [ONE OF 35 NUMBERED COPIES OF "THE PLAGUE" - IN A SPLEDID "RAT-BINDING"]‎

Reference : 57977

‎La Peste.‎

‎(Paris), Gallimard), 1947. Splendidly bound with the original wrappers, also the back-strip, and uncut with single-leaf gilding of all edges, in a wonderful brown full morocco binding with quirky gilding to spine and boards - spine with a stylized geometrical rat-face with a swiveled tail behind it, and boards with the same motif repeated eight times in a circle. Inside of boards with a brown suede onlay, inside brown and grey morocco borders, divided by a gilt line. The corresponding free end-papers covered with brown suede - verso with lovely marbled paper in gold, brown and grey nuances - the facing endpapers covered likewise. The free leaves at front and back have the slightest of discoloration along the outer margins. Otherwise internally completly clean, fresh, and crisp.The binding has light "fading" to the spine, causing it to be a nuance more reddish than the boards. Overall, the binding is in splendid condition. Housed in a slip-case with brown morocco edges. The slip-case has a bit of wear to extremities, especially top and bottom of the morocco-edges. Both binding and slip-case are signed "L. Lévêque" in gilt lettering. A hand-written note in light pencil to the blank front free end-paper indicates that the binding has been executed by Louise Lévêque around 1960 and that the gilding is by Jules Fache or Raymond Mondage. A splendid copy of the first edition - nr. 23 of 35 numbered copies on Hollande (after merely 15 on Japon) - of this magnum opus of existentialism, Camus' groundbreaking novel "The Plague", in which an anonymous narrator portrays a plague-epidemic in the Algerian city of Oran in the 1940'ies. The initial panic is replaced by an indifference that symbolizes nazism, and the German invasion generally is symbolized by the invasion of hoards of rats in the city. But at the same time this masterpiece of existentialist literature portrays the foundational ethical and existential dilemmas of mankind, and Camus is omnipresent in this anonymously narrated masterpiece of fiction.<br><br>The first part opens with a description of thousands of rats, initially unnoticed by the population, beginning to die in the streets of the town of Oran. Hysteria soon begins to develop, causing the local newspapers to report the incident. Authorities responding to public pressure order the collection and cremation of the rats, unaware that the collection itself will be the catalyst for the spread of the plague. Thus, the rat initially plays the main character of the novel, making this unusual binding with the stylized gilt rat in focus, in an unending circle on the brown morocco, an unusal, sophisticated finesse of a binding.<br><br>"[...] everything Camus was experiencing that year seems to have found direct expression in that work (i.e. The Plague). The real-life Camus appears everywhere in "The Plague"... "The Plague is an allegorical novel. The plague is Nazism and evil; the brown rats are the brown-shirted nazis; the citizens of Oran caught in the quarantine are the French under German occupation; the townspeople who fight the epidemic, each in his own way, are "résistants"; their actions are forms of revolt. The book also presents a portrait of the author in transition... He has suffered from his illness and from separation. He has been changed and radicalized by exile and wartime, has moved beyond his earlier pacifism to engagement, moved from a mere recognition of the absurd to a demand for an active response..." (Elizabeth Hawes: Camus, A Romance, (2009), pp. 63-64).‎

It was edited by Camus together with Gabriel Audisio, René-Jean Clot, Jacques Heurgon, and Jean Hytier and was published by Edmond Charlot, in Algiers.

‎L'Été. Les essais LXVIII.‎

‎Paris, Gallimard, 1954. Uncut in the original printed wrappers. Excellent copy. First edition, Service de presse-copy, i.e. review-copy ("S.P" to bottom of title-page and to verso of back wrapper), with an excellent presentation-inscription, of Camus' magnificent and highly influential collection of essays entitled "Summer". <br><br>The copy is inscribed to Camus' close friend and ally in numerous respects, Jean Paulhan: "a Jean Paulhan/ en affectueuse pensée/ Albert Camus" on half-title. <br><br>The famous French writer, literary critic and publisher Jean Paulhan (1884-1964) shared many things with Camus, with whom he grew very close. Not only did he participate actively in the publication of Camus' first books by Gallimard, was one of the first to see the true value of Camus' "The Stranger", he was also a confidante of Camus, who considered Paulhan one of the main reasons that he became a proper author. <br><br>In a letter to Paulhan dated September 17, 1952, at the moment of break with Sartre, Camus writes: "Ever since I (thanks to you) became what is called an author, I have not ceased to be astonished by my brethren. Sometimes, it is true, in the sense of admiration. Today it is in another sense." (Depuis que je suis devenu (en peu grâce à vous) ce qu'on apelle écrivain, je n'ai pas cessé d'être étonné par mes confrères. Parfois dans le sens de l'admiration, il est vrai. Aujourd'hui c'est dans un autre sens.).<br><br>Paulhan was an early and active member of the French Resistance, director of the literary magazine Nouvelle Revue Française (NRF) (from 1925 to 1940 and again from 1946 to 1968) and a great translator of Malagasy poetry, which attracted the interest of the likes of Guillaume Apollinaire and Paul Éluard. He also wrote numerous works of literary criticism, "The Flowers of Tarbes, or Terror in Literature" (1941) probably being the most famous, and he wrote several autobiographical short stories. <br><br>After the war, Paulhan he founded "Cahiers de la Pléiade", and in 1953 he re-launched NRF.<br><br>Interestingly, especially in connection with Camus' famous essays in "L'été", which are devoted entirely to his beloved Algiers, Paulhan was loudly against independence for Algeria. He caused great controversy by opposing independence and supporting the French military during the Algerian War. This not only caused public problems for him, it also cost him on the personal front, as for instance Maurice Blanchot denounced him. <br><br>The essays in "L'été" are devoted to Algiers and represent a very personal side of Camus, who provides a marvelous poetic and humorous picture of the provincial simplicities of Oran and Algiers. For many Camus-devotees, "L'Été" constitutes one of the most beloved works, as it gives the feel of a certain intimacy with the author that few of his other works does. "In "Return to Tipasa", perhaps the most confessional essay in "Summer", which dates from a long trip to Algeria in December 1952, Camus issues his now famous testimony of survival - "In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer" (Hawes: Camus, A Romance, 2009, pp. 181-82).‎

"In "Return to Tipasa", perhaps the most confessional essay in "Summer", which dates from a long trip to Algeria in December 1952, Camus issues his now famous testimony of survival - "In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer" (Hawes: Camus, A Romance, 2009, pp. 181-82).‎

‎CAMUS, ALBERT. - [THE NOBEL SPEECH]‎

Reference : 58312

‎Discours de Suède.‎

‎Paris, Gallimard, 1958. 8vo. Bound (by J.P. Miguet) uncut with the original printed wrappers, also the backstrip, in a splendid red half morocco binding with gilt lettering to spine. Beatiful red and blue marbled paper over boards. Housed in a matching marbled paper slip-case with red morocco edges. Gilt super ex-libris to inside of front board. A completely clean and fresh copy. 69, (6) pp. Scarce first edition, nr. 2 of 56 numbered copies (premier papier) on Hollande van Gelder, of Camus' highly important and profoundly personal Nobel speeches. <br><br>The first of the speeches was given at the Nobel Banquet at the City Hall in Stockholm, December 10, 1957, the second at the Nobel Banquet at the University of Uppsala, December 14, 1957. <br><br>The first speech presents Camus's ideas about art and the role that it plays for the writer. He adresses the relationship between literature and truth, examining how the writer must be a servant to truth and how an artist must be open to the world, partake in its joys and punishments, but is bound to isolate himself when creating. The speech is considered of great importance to the literature of artful creation and is highly praised by the likes of Solzhenitsyn.<br><br>Camus begins the speech with the famous paragraph: "In receiving the distinction with which your free Academy has so generously honoured me, my gratitude has been profound, particularly when I consider the extent to which this recompense has surpassed my personal merits. Every man, and for stronger reasons, every artist, wants to be recognized. So do I. But I have not been able to learn of your decision without comparing its repercussions to what I really am. A man almost young, rich only in his doubts and with his work still in progress, accustomed to living in the solitude of work or in the retreats of friendship: how would he not feel a kind of panic at hearing the decree that transports him all of a sudden, alone and reduced to himself, to the centre of a glaring light? And with what feelings could he accept this honour at a time when other writers in Europe, among them the very greatest, are condemned to silence, and even at a time when the country of his birth is going through unending misery?"<br><br>The second speech, which has also been highly praised, addresses the place of art in society and also centres around the artist's dilemma: to be at the same time part of the world and outside the world; it is here that Camus creates the famous phrase: "solitaire and solidaire".‎

‎Paris, Gallimard, (1950) + (1953) + (1958). 8vo. Bound in three absolutelyexquisite full calf bindings with splendid geometric- and wave-patters made of onlays of bright red, burgundy red, white and off-white calf on brown calf background. Gilt vertical titles to spines.

All three bindings with red suede to inside of boards and housed in splendid chemises with burgundy calf-spines, with gilt lettering, and thuin wood veneer boards, housed again in thin wood veneer slip-cases with calf edges. Uncut and with single-laef gilding to all sides. <br><br>A truly splendid set in magnificent condition, bound by J.-P. Miguet.

A truly unique and homogenous set of the three volumes that collect Camus' "Chronicles", his political pieces, journalist pieces etc. Especially vol. III, the Algerian Chronicles, is considered of immense importance, as it gathers and clarifies his pacifist leaning views. "Algerian Chronicles is a moving record of Albert Camus's distress at his inability to alleviate the series of tragedies that befell his homeland, Algeria, over a perios of 20 years, from 1939 to 1958. Camus collected these reactions to current events in a volume originally entitles "Actuelles III"."‎

‎SARTRE, JEAN-PAUL. - [UNDERSTANDING CAMUS]‎

Reference : 33486

‎Explication de l'Étranger.‎

‎Palimugre, (Sceaux), (1946). 12mo. Orig. printed wrappers. Uncut. Wrappers w. minor traces of use. Internally mint. (2), 31, (1) pp., (1) leaf (on which is printed "HORS COMMERCE"). First separate edition of this interesting and rare Sartre-publication, which is considered essential for the understanding of Camus. The work is extremely scarce, and was only printed in a very small number, all the copies of which are on fine paper, either velin de Lana, Lana supérieur or Japan, and no copies were for sale (all being Hors commerce). "(t)irée à petit nombre sur vélin de Lana, Lana supérieur at Japon, elle ne sera pas mise dans la commerce." (verso of first leaf).<br><br>The work was written in September 1942, and it was printed in the journal "Cahiers du Sud" no. 253 in February 1943, pp. 189 - 206. <br><br>"Texte fondamental pour la conaissance de Camus; écrit en septembre 1942. A noter que Sartre ne fera la connaissance de Camus que quelques moins plus tard, à la générale de MOUCHES." (Contat & Rybalka, p. 93). Contat & Rybalka 46/97: "Bien qu'en principe hors commerce, cette plaquette, imprimée en janvier 1946, a connu une large diffusion et semble avoir été à l'origine de la carrière d'editeur de Jean-Jacques Pauvert." <br><br>With the autograph signature of "C.G. Bjurström", dated "Paris juli 1946" in pencil on front fly-leaf. <br>Carl Gustaf Bjurström was a very important Swedish translator and publishing correspondent. He was born in Rotterdam in 1919 and died in Paris in 2001. He graduated as "licentié des lettres" in France and was manager of the Swedish institute in Paris (from 1951 till 1956). He introduced several French writers to Sweden, probably most importantly Camus, and he became the main translator of his works into Swedish. He knew Camus personally and even accompanied him on the train to Stockholm in 1957 to receive the Nobel Prize. He also translated several Swedish writers into French, most importantly probably Strindberg.‎
