About this Item: Le Livre d'histoire-Lorisse, 2002. Couverture souple. Condition: Comme neuf. Édition limitée. in-8 br., 55 p. coll. "Monographies des Villes & Villages de France", fac-simile de l'ouvrage paru en 1934, 1ère réédition tirée à 300 exemplaires numérotés (n° 95), illustrations h.-t., état de neuf. Tombé sous le charme d’Hossegor, comme son ami J.-H. Rosny Jeune (et tant d’autres : de Gabriele d’Annunzio à Georges Carpentier, en passant par Suzanne Lenglen, le sculpteur Despiau, le champion olympique d’escrime Lucien Gaudin, l’écrivain Paul Margueritte ou le chroniqueur aventurier Maurice Martin), Maxime Leroy consacre un livre à ce site exceptionnel, « où le lac a besoin de la forêt pour nous apparaître dans son équilibre et sa grâce », plus de trente ans après l’avoir découvert. Il n’oublie pas de nous rappeler, dans une chronologie minutieuse, ce qui s’est passé depuis son installation sur cette terre devenue mythique : l’émerveillement qu’il partage avec Rosny en 1903 face à une nature presque vierge, la construction de sa maison, la Pierre Bleue, avec l’aide de ses amis en 1905, la parution du livre de Maurice Martin sur la Côte d’Argent en 1906, la déclaration à la sous-préfecture de Dax de la Société des Amis du lac en 1909, l’article de Rosny paru dans l’Illustration en 1911, qui révèle Hossegor au monde entier (ou presque), la création du lotissement en 1923 et le succès croissant de la Cité-Parc, « sous le triple signe de l’art, du savoir et de l’amitié ». « Nous voulons espérer que les villes de l’avenir connaîtront plus d’ombrages et d’eaux vives que nos villes actuelles », écrit-il, transporté par cette naissance urbaine. L’amour du lieu et l’utopie sociale sont donc au rendez-vous de cette expérience unique, mais l’auteur n’en oublie pas, pour autant, dans son ouvrage, Hossegor et son histoire. Aussi, après avoir constaté que « peu de régions ont suscité la curiosité littéraire, autant que ces deux cents kilomètres de côtes qui filent à si droite et ferme allure de la Gironde à l’Adour », se tourne-t-il vers le passé. Impossible de dissocier Hossegor de Capbreton et de Bayonne, mais « rien ne révèle, constate-t-il, qu’Hossegor a été mêlé aux grands drames de l’Océan et de l’Adour, pendant plusieurs siècles. Nul monument ancien, pas même quelques noms à peine lisibles sur des pierres moussues ne rappellent cette tragédie pluriséculaire. Il faut feuilleter des chartes, des actes notariés, des registres de l’état civil pour retrouver les traces de cette rivalité. ». Seller Inventory # ABE-15960119593

About this Item: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1989. hardcover. Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st edition. New York. 1989. Farrar Straus Giroux. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket . Translated from the Spanish by Alfred Mac Adam. 122 pages. September 1989. hardcover. Jacket design (c) 1989 by Syndi Becker Author photo by Mario Ferrer. ISBN: 0374120838. inventory # 12990. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The fragmentation and counterpoint of his narrative, its cycles and spirals, give his work a labyrinthine quality. In THE CHASE, Carpentier combines atmosphere, violence, and a sophisticated meditation on flight from the modern world into a richly textured romance of exploration. The current boom in Latin American fiction-the heady mix of fevered politics and narrative innovation in the works of Gabriel Garcia Márquez, Mario Vargas Llosa, José Donoso, and others-would not have been possible without Alejo Carpentier’s THE CHASE. For it is this remarkable novella which changed the literary imagination of the Spanish language, much as the work of Jorge Luis Borges revolutionized its narrative forms, Written in 1956, The Chase is a thrilling tale told against the backdrop of Havana in the era of Batistas violent tyranny. Carpentier tells of two men (one a student on the run, the other a ticket seller in a concert hall) who come to find their lives-and fates-intertwined. Both men trace paths through the tumultuous city that bring them to the home of Estrella, a prostitute. They are planets doomed to orbit around-this fixed star. THE CHASE is Carpentier at his luxuriant, baroque best. His language, as one critic has observed, seems to register the contrary impulses that set imagination against reason; its involuted syntax coils around the sharp edges of concepts and ideas as if to draw them into equivocal and more elusive terrain. He masterfully undermines a sense of linear progress, deepening the mystery of historical time. Alejo Carpentier y Valmont (December 26, 1904 - April 24, 1980) was a Cuban novelist, essay writer, and musicologist who greatly influenced Latin American literature during its famous ‘boom’ period. Carpentier was born in Lausanne, Switzerland. For a long time it was believed that he was born in La Habana where his family moved immediately before his birth, but following his death a birth certificate was found in Switzerland. His mother was a Russian professor of languages and his father was a French architect. At 12, his family moved to Paris, where he began to study music theory at the lycee Jeanson de Sailly. When they returned to Cuba in the 1920s, he began a study of architecture which he never completed. He also studied music. Carpentier became a cultural journalist, writing mostly about avant-garde developments in the arts, particularly music. His journalistic work was also considered as leftist and helped found the Cuban Communist Party. Together with the composer Amadeo Roldán, he helped organize the Cuban premieres of works by Stravinsky and Poulenc. 1927, Carpentier was arrested for opposing the Gerardo Machado y Morales dictatorship and spent forty days in jail. It is during this brief period in jail when he started working on his first novel, Ecué-Yamba-O (1933), an exploration of Afro-Cuban traditions among the poor of the island, which he later disavowed for being superficial. He was released in early 1928. After his release, he escaped Cuba with the help of poet journalist Robert Desnos who had lent him his passport and papers. While exiled in France, Carpentier was introduced to the surrealists by Desnos, including André Breton, Paul Eluard, Louis Aragon, Jacques Prévert, and Antonin Artaud. He also met Guatemalan author Miguel Angel Asturias, whose work on pre-Columbian mythology influenced his writing. He continued to earn his living writing, both in French and Spanish, on contemporary culture, as well as contributing to the Communist Party journal. While in France, he made several visits to Spain, during which he developed a fascination for the Baroque. In 1937 (during the Spanish Civil War) he atte. Seller Inventory # z12990

About this Item: Mercury House, 1990. hardcover. Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st edition. San Francisco. 1990. Mercury House. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. Translated from the Spanish by Thomas & Carol Christensen. 159 pages. hardcover. Jacket illustration - Christopher Columbus sailing through uncharted seas, colored engraving, circa 1585. Jacket design by Sharon Smith. ISBN: 0916515710. inventory # 14256. FROM THE PUBLISHER - As the discovery of America approaches its quincentennial in 1992, Christopher Columbus evokes little more than a name, a list of ships, and a date recited by schoolchildren. Now, translated for the first time into English, THE HARP AND THE SHADOW provides a provocative portrait of Columbus ad seen through the eyes of one of Latin America’s outstanding writers. Was Columbus a saint or a sinner? Carpentier examines the question is this historical novel. The first section, ‘The Harp’, takes place in the early decades of the nineteenth century, as Pope Pius IX, faced with unrest in the Americas, seeks to beatify a unifying figure, Columbus. The second section, ‘The Hand’, is a flashback: Columbus lies dying, awaiting his confessor and wrestling with his sense of failure and guilt. He ponders the disparity between his initial elation at discovery of the New World and his eventual obsession with gold and slaves. In the farcical and phantasmagoric final section, ‘The Shadow’, scholars and writers from Bartolome de las Casas to Jules Verne debate whether Columbus should be beatified, while the spirit of Columbus observes them, alternately cringing and crowing. THE HARP AND THE SHADOW describes the initial encounter between the Old and the New World, exploring the tragic consequences of abandoned idealism and the difficulties of communication between two cultures. Alejo Carpentier y Valmont (December 26, 1904 - April 24, 1980) was a Cuban novelist, essay writer, and musicologist who greatly influenced Latin American literature during its famous ‘boom’ period.
