About this Item: CHRISTIAN BOURGOIS, 2014. Paperback. Condition: NEUF. Voici enfin publié pour la première fois, plus de soixante-quinze ans après sa rédaction, un reportage signé James Agee que l'on croyait à tout jamais perdu, une enquête sur le métayage du coton dans l'Alabama qui devait donner lieu, plusieurs années plus tard, au célèbre ouvrage Louons maintenant les grands hommes (1941).En 1936, le magazine Fortune, pour lequel Agee travaille, décide de l'envoyer dans l'Alabama afin de décrire les conditions de vie de trois familles de métayers du coton. Agee insiste pour que le photographe Walker Evans l'accompagne et c'est ainsi que les deux hommes vivront plusieurs semaines durant avec les Burroughs, les Tingle et les Fields. Tandis qu'Evans réalise certains de ses clichés les plus célèbres, Agee décrit minutieusement les existences de ces hommes, femmes et enfants, afin que nous en comprenions parfaitement chacun des aspects, qu'il s'agisse du travail, de la nourriture, des maisons, des vêtements, de la santé, de l'éducation ou des loisirs.Profondément bouleversé et indigné par les conditions de vie ces trois familles de métayers, Agee a produit un compte rendu journalistique qui émeut par sa beauté et sa virulence, une charge contre le capitalisme qui explique, à n'en pas douter, pourquoi Fortune rejeta l'article et qui demeure, de nombreuses décennies plus tard, d'une féroce actualité. - Nombre de page(s) : 192 - Poids : 302g - Langue : ANGLAIS (ETATS-UNIS) - Genre : Histoire autres continents.

About this Item: Harcourt, Brace and Company (1927), New York, 1927. Hardcover. A later printing, ex-library copy with the bookplate of The Phillips Exeter Academy library on the front pastedown, stamped DISCARDED, of a book made into a film starring Burt Lancaster that won three Academy Awards. An undistinguished copy BUT for the fact that it belonged to James Agee with his SIGNATURE "J R Agee" dated March 1927 on the front free endpaper. This copy later belonged to Henry Darcy Curwen, of the Exeter English faculty, who signed his name below Agee's. In March 1927, Agee, at age 17, was in his "upper-middle" year (junior) at Exeter, an admirer of Sinclair Lewis and already committed to a literary career, submitting poems and stories to the Phillips Exeter Monthly. In one of his early letters to Father Flye (LETTERS OF JAMES AGEE TO FATHER FLYE, pages 27-28) dated Exeter 17 March 1927, Agee writes: "I've bought and read Elmer Gantry, the Lewis satire on religion. It's very disappointing, although excellent in spots. He's turning rancid." Reflecting his own psychological unease at the time, Agee soon expands this somewhat in one of his earliest published critical articles, a review of ELMER GANTRY in the Phillips Exeter Monthly 31 (May 1927): "It is one gigantic crescendo of walloping filthiness, and I have the feeling that it carried Mr. Lewis before it, and left him stranded where not even himself can work his salvation." Early signed Agee material is uncommon, and the important resonance of this copy with his beginning literary efforts can hardly be exaggerated. Good copy, lacking the dustwrapper. An Agee rarity.

About this Item: Rome: Botteghe oscure, 1950, 1950. Octavo. Original buff wrappers, title to front cover in black. Faint spotting to wrappers, front hinge starting at head but text block sound, contents lightly toned. A very good copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation offprint, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Albert Brush, with warmest regard and esteem, Jim Agee, June 6, '54"; an offprint of the novella as it first appeared in the literary journal Botteghe oscure, VI. The recipient, the enigmatic Santa Monica poet Albert Brush, travelled in bohemian circles in Greenwich Village in the 1920s. He was in Paris in the early 1930s and spent most of his life moving in the artistic circles of Southern California; he appears briefly in the biographies of figures such as Christopher Isherwood and Charles Laughton. In the later 1930s he helped write Laughton's famous English adaptation of Bertold Brecht's Life of Galileo. In 1954, the time of this inscription, Agee was finishing work with Laughton on the screenplay of The Night of the Hunter (1955); it was presumably Laughton who introduced the two. Agee's novella, with its 12-year-old protagonist and atmosphere of foreboding religiosity, shares a number of themes with his screenplay for Laughton's celebrated film. Seller Inventory # 106970

About this Item: The Viking Press, New York, 1965. First edition of Levitt and Agee's classic collaboration. Oblong quarto, original black cloth, illustrated with 50 black-and-white photogravures. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Signed by Helen Levitt on the title page. Essay by James Agee. "James Agee, dead ten years in 1965, had written his essay for the book in 1946 Although he may not have been the first writer to apply the word lyrical to Levitt’s marvelously serendipitous images of urban street theater, his essay was for some time their most persuasive critical frame. In this edition, his text literally brackets the 50 photos, which are arranged in an episodic montage—bleak, antic, poignant; sometimes melodramatic, often comic—at once suggestively narrative and as ephemeral as a passing glance" (Roth, 178). In this timeless work, "Levitt’s photographs are beautiful—major, underrated works. Like Henri Cartier-Bresson, she achieves a rare balancing act: her pictures have sentiment without being sentimental" (Parr & Badger II:252). Seller Inventory # 807
