        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT POEM (Juvenilia - 4 pages): "Bank Holiday"

      [1926] 1926 - Exceptionally scarce 4-page AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT of a poem written by Auden as a teenager. Published in THE OXFORD OUTLOOK in November 1926 and not published in book form until 1994 in W. H. AUDEN JUVENILIA edited by Katherine Bucknell, from which much of the information below was acquired. Two other manuscript copies of this poem are known to exist, in the collections of David Ayerst (Bloomfield J16) and of Christopher Isherwood, neither exactly identical to this but both resembling this much more than the published version which eliminated several stanzas present here. All told there are 78 lines divided into three sections on both sides of two 6-7/8" x 8-7/8" sheets of paper watermarked "Civic Bond" that have long ago been neatly joined by a conservator who also made several paper repairs. The poem begins "The queen's hand on the king's cold shoulder falling." Bucknell points out that the poem is reminiscent of THE WASTE LAND with the left out passages revealing some borrowing from Eliot's "The Hollow Men." This manuscript was acquired along with a letter from Auden to Robert Medley and was likely given to Medley at some point. Auden met and became friends with Medley in 1922 shortly after Auden's 15th birthday. It was Robert Medley who suggested that Auden try writing poetry. Later Medley helped to create the Group Theater where he provided scenery and costumes for the play ON THE FRONTIER by Auden and Isherwood. Several words on the last page are partly faded and obliterated by a repaired tear. A spectacular find in Good to Very Good condition

      . . An Dr. Friedrich Possekel, Berlin, der von 1926-1933 Direktor der "Deutschen Buch-Gemeinschaft" (DBG) war, mit einer Warnung und über verlagsinterne Angelegenheiten: "Lieber Herr Possekel, am 20. Jan. kommt ein Direktor vom O r e l l u. F ü s s l i namens Zutt nach Berlin, den ich zwar nicht persönlich kenne, der aber durch vertrauenswürdige Bekannte von mir (Frau Margarete Pollak-Steger, die Sie wohl bereits kennen, und den Herausgeber der 'Schaubücher': Dr. Emil Schaeffer) über die Angelegenheit Seydel u. Co unterrichtet ist und wird. Direktor Zutt wird dann wohl entweder mit Frau P. S. [Pollak-Steger] oder Dr. Sch. [aeffer] ... bei Ihnen vorsprechen. Während nun diese meine beiden Bekannten von einer über jeden Zweifel erhabenen Anständigkeit sind, sei zu Ihrer privaten Information [im Original doppelt unterstrichen] hinzugefügt, daß Direktor Zutt ein sehr smarter Geschäftsmann und Provisionist ist - nicht immer zum Vorteil seiner Firma. Er machte die 'S c h a u b ü c h e r' nur unter der Bedingung, daß Dr. Sch. [aeffer] privatim die Herausgeberhonorare mit ihm teile. Und als ein Freund von mir im Auftrage des Mescy [?]- Konzerns (Prager Tagblatt) einen großen Betrag bei Orell u. Füssli placieren wollte, wollte Direktor Zutt zunächst einer privaten Provision versichert sein, worauf Prag die Verhandlungen abbrach. - Die Firma Orell-Füssli selbst ist von tadelloser Anständigkeit. -- Emil Schaeffer war Herausgeber der berühmten "Schaubücher" im Orell & Füssli Verlag, Zürich. Ich bin bis Montag, den 30. Juni verreist, kann mich also erst wieder ab Montag um Ihre Bestellungen kümmern. - DANKE für Ihre Geduld.

        3 Autograph letters to Francis Bickley on four Pages (September 1925?- April 1926)

      - Each letter written to Francis Lawrence Bickley, author of The Adventures of Harlequin which was one of early fine books he illustrated. Each written on his letterhead John Austen. The September letter is not dated by year but from internal evidence points to 1925 when his "Rogues in Porcelain" was issued by Chapman and Hall. Austen writes that he is glad he thinks well of the "Rogues" and I look forward to your criticism of it. [In a case of apparent censorship, he writes:] "A[rthur]. Waugh, publisher of Chapman and Hall, is [desolatest?] because forsooth I have included "The Dove" its evidently the first line he had read it, as he knew well that I was to use it and now he says its indecent and will probably stop sales. I suggest it only increases them. I will certainly tell him to include the Bookman in his list but probably has already done so." He goes on to note: "I enclose the proof of your story which I enjoyed muchly--wish I could decorate a volume of such. Certainly, I will do something with them and will post the drawings when complete, we may be lucky with them." If you have seen Harry Clarke since his visit here, you will have a graphic description of our little estate. Letter of Feb 14th (1928), he notes he is at work on illustrations for Byron's Don Juan for John Lane and also something for Geoffrey Bles, suggests a project for which he proposes to do decorations (though there will not be money in it), mentions his new Rolls Royce and offers to give Bickley a tour if he can trust Austen's "wild driving" In the letter of April 20 invited him to enjoy the country life which he and his wife already have come to love. John Austen is known in the U.S. for his many illustrations for George Macy's Limited Editions Club though his English illustrated books are far more scarce.
