CLAVEL, BERNARD
The Fruits of Winter
London, George G. Harrap. 1970, First Edition. (ISBN: 0245599045). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 344 pages. Translated by Annie Mygind in collaboration with Patrick Henry. The author Bernard Charles Henri Clavel (1923-2010) won the 1968 Prix Goncourt. His novel tells the story of Gaston Dubois and his wife Fernande, forced to work their way into old age, who live in their own small world where the events and tragedies of World War 2 mean little to them. Their cares and troubles are focused on the garden which provides their food, the wood which provides heat for the long winter months, and their children: Paul, the materialistic and unscrupulous son who trades with the Germans in the Black Market; Julien, who represents all the hopes of his mother despite the fact that he is a deserter and chooses to live the life of a bohemian artist. Skilfully written and evoking all the hardships, anguish, and inner conflicts caused by the war, it is a powerful story, rich in characterization and incident. 309. Fine/Near Fine.

PARMEE, DOUGLAS (SELECTED AND TRANSLATED BY)
Chamfort - Reflections on Life, Love and Society Together with Anecdotes and Little Philosophical Dialogues
London, Short. 2003, First Edition. (ISBN: 1904095623). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. Nicolas Chamfort (1741-1794) was a man of his time, a love child of noble birth, who beacame a cult figure in pre-revolutionary Paris, but it was only after his death that he achieved the fame he had always longed for. In his room were found thousands of scraps of paper on which he had written his reflections on love, life and society, which have become a testament to his perceptive wit. In this first English language edition of its type, Douglas Parmee has skilfully translated a core selection of these reflections which provide a gripping portrait of the colourful characters of pre-revolutionary France and also a treasury of poignant, satirical humour. 205. Fine/Fine.
