(French: Querelle de Brest) is a novel by the French writer Jean Genet. It was written mostly in 1945 and first published anonymously in 1947, limited to 460 numbered copies, with illustrated throughout by Jean Cocteau who didn’t avoid the pornographic details...
A compact Neanderthal end scraper with further retouched edges, making an effective multitool. Jasper, height 2 1/4". Excellent condition with a deep, luminous ground patina. Legal surface find from the Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Dates to 80,000-50,000 BCE.
A large multi-tool/scraper on a flake from the Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Jasper, height 3 7/8". Excellent condition with a semi-glossy surface patina. Legal excavation find. This is a difficult lithic to classify. It may be a recycled tool as it exhibits two different techniques (hard hammer Clactonian and soft hammer retouches) which seem to be by two different hands. Excellent ergonomics and a particularly beautiful and luminous surface...
On the left a biface notched Clactonian scraper from the Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Jasper, height 2 7/8". Excellent condition, legal excavation find. Matt ground patina. Probably Homo Erectus. On the right a Clactonian burin with concave scraper from the Dordogne region, France. Flint, height 2 1/2". Auction purchase, I have no specific find information on this. Excellent condition with a soft ground patina. Both date to 300,000-200,000 BCE.
Lower paleolithic proto-axe from Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Probably Homo Erectus (Antecessor). Bean ore jasper, height 2 3/4". Minor chips, otherwise excellent condition. Legal excavation find. Remarkably conceived in terms of ergonomic design. The thumb channel on the ventral side of the axe allows for a substantially stronger grip on the axe, greatly increasing its efficacity. Dates to 300,000-200,000 BCE.
Excellent example of a Clactonian borer or drill from Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Jasper, height 3 1/2". Excellent condition, legal excavation find. Semi-glossy ground patina. Initially this was a fragment of a large Clactonian flake. Dates to 300,000-200,000 BCE.
A large Neanderthal flint pic with a beautiful sea patina from Reculver Cliffs, Kent, UK. Height 4 1/4". Legal find from the tidal pool area. Missing one or two minor, old chips, otherwise excellent condition, very solid, sculptural example. Dates to approximately 80,000-50,000 BCE.
Clactonian pebble chopper with large remaining area of cortex and a fantastic bulb of percussion on the ventral face. Flint, height 3 3/8", in excellent condition. Tumbled sea patina. From Folkstone Beach, South Coast, Kent, England. Due to coastal erosion and ocean movements this one may have travelled a bit from its original location over time. Some of what looks like retouches may be old chips, the lithic is a bit hard to read due to the soft, tumbled, ocean patina...
A large lower paleolithic burin with a concave scraper on a pebble fragment. Bean ore jasper in excellent condition, height 5". Legal surface find, Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Either Heidelberg Man or very early Neanderthal/transitional. Dates to approximately200,000-150,000 BCE.
Fascinating and highly unusual tool. This is a lower paleolithic (probably Heidelberg Man) levallois core that was, thousands of years later, refashioned and recycled into a complex multi-tool by a Neanderthal tool maker. Bean ore jasper, height 2 3/4". Legal surface find, Bavaria, Germany. Excellent condition with fine ground patina. Note the difference in color on the core surface and the retouches from the middle paleolithic era. Dating this is complex...
A lower Paleolithic Clactonian cleaver on a flint pebble from Dorset, England. Legal surface find with a fine, glossy patina and large area of cortex remaining. height 4 3/4", excellent condition. Straightforward hard hammer percussion chopper or cleaver which takes great advantage to the natural ergonomics of the pebble. Heidelberg Man. Dates to approximately 650,000 BCE.
A fabulous Mode 1 pebble tool on a flint nodule from Grand Pressigny, France (found in an ancient dried channel of the Creuse River). Legal surface find in excellent condition with a fabulous ground patina. Height 4". This is a beautiful and rare example of an Oldowan Mode 1 pebble tool. created summarily with a minimum of flake removals, it takes good advantage of the natural ergonomic properties of the pebble to be useful as a chopper on several surfaces. Beautiful sculptural presence...

A group of three Neanderthal Multi-tools. The lithic in the center is from Upper Normandy in France, near Beauzeville (along the Seine) and is a legal surface find. The other two are from Marbach, Germany, also legal surface finds. All three are in excellent condition, the French lithic is flint, the German lithics are chert. Heights are all 3". Variegated to glossy ground patinas. All three of these tools exhibit a fine technical realization of complex multi-tool functionality...
Five Neanderthal multi-tools made from chert or jasper from Marbach, Germany. All five are in excellent condition, heights between 2 1/8" and 2 3/8" and are legal surface finds. All are on flakes and exhibit fine worksmanship and multiple retouched edges. Date to 80,000-50,000 BCE.
A group of four Neanderthal burins made of chert from Marbach, Germany. Heights between 1 7/8" and 2". All legal surface finds in excellent condition. Though smaller, these four lithics exhibit excellent craftsmanship both in conception and execution, and are multi-tools with several different scraper/blade edges as well as the burin tips. Date to 80,000-50,000 BCE.
A group of three Neanderthal scrapers from Reculver cliffs, Kent, England. Flint, heights between 1 3/4" and 2 1/8". All three in excellent condition with fine, glossy sea patina. The Reculver cliffs were originally an inland elevation, but over time rising sea levels have placed them on the coast where they have been eroding at an accelerated pace. The zone between the high and low tide yields many lithics with a very specific, soft to high gloss patina due to being tumbled about in the ocean...
