        'Treinboekje'.

      Origineel blocnote ('Scotch Bloc') met 62 gelinieerde velletjes, op 6 na allemaal beschreven in potlood, meestal oblong. 13,3 x 8,3 cm. Op de voorzijde van het omslag noteerde Kemp de periode waarin hij de gedichten in dit boekje schreef: '1941/43'. Op de binnenzijde van het omslag staat de latere handgeschreven, gesigneerde opdracht: 'Voor/ Mimi Asselberghs/ dit „schetsboekje" uit/ mijn de-dichter-in-de trein-/ tijd (1934-1944)/ van/ Pierre Kemp'. Enkele velletjes missen een deel of hebben een ezelsoor.* Uniek kijkje in de keuken van de dichter Pierre Kemp, ook nog eens uit zijn poëtisch belangrijkste periode! Kemp schreef dagelijks in de trein aan zijn poëzie en deed dat dan in een blocnote. Het zijn soms complete gedichten, maar vaker invallen, losse regels of strofen, vaak met doorhalingen en correcties. De meeste velletjes zijn gedateerd.De bekendste foto van Pierre Kemp (ook afgedrukt op het omslag van de Kemp-biografie van Wiel Kusters) is die van de dichter in de trein, met zijn ene been over het andere, een regel noterend op een blocnote.

        5 Typed Letters Signed ("Dick") to the wife of his mentor and old friend, Adam C. ("Kit") Carson

      Washington, D.C., Boston, and New York, may 8 - december 8, 1941 - When Richard Byrd was just twelve years old in 1900, Adam ("Kit") Carson, a friend and associate of his father's in the family's law firm, invited the young Byrd to visit him in the Philippine Islands. Young Byrd, characteristically, accepted immediately and enthusiastically, displaying the curiosity and yearning for adventure that marked his later life. But the relationship with Carson grew and deepened, and in this sequence of letters to Carson's wife, written over forty years later, Byrd's reverence for his aged and dying friend is apparent. In the first letter, from Boston, dated May 20th, Byrd writes: "Dear Eleanor, Will it be too late to come to Riverton next Tuesday? . Don't forget that I am going through this with you. I know how tough it is." Then, on June 2, "I am writing this letter to let you know that I am with you constantly in thought and spirit. I have Kit's photograph in my room and I cannot feel that he is gone. Indeed, he can't be absolutely gone because he will be as he has always been a real factor in my day to day life . " Again, on July 9, "I want to tell you again please not to think that I am not constantly thinking of you and the children and, as for old Kit, he is so much in my thoughts that I have had several dreams about him lately. He is not non- existent for me because he is still a real factor in my life as he has always been . " 8-1/2 x 10 inches. Each one page. Final letter is torn and tape-repaired, with no loss of text; others are very good to fine

        [Archive]: A Collection of Love Letters and Personal Correspondence sent to Yulla Lipchitz (1941-1955)

      (1941-1955). An extraordinary collection of nearly 300 letters, consisting of about 250 love letters and 50 letters of related personal correspondence, sent to Yulla Lipchitz, sculptor and photographer, and the wife of the renowned sculptor Jacques Lipchitz. Included in the collection are 12 holographic letters by Jacques Lipchitz, 8 black and white photographs of Yulla and two of her lovers taken before her marriage to Lipchitz, several telegrams and post cards, a few of Yulla's draft replies, and several pieces of manuscript and printed ephemera. Although Yulla, her first husband Frederick Mott, and most of her correspondents were German-Jews who fled Germany in the late 1930s, nearly all of the letters are written in English (with occasional flourishes in German), and nearly all abound with deeply felt emotional passions for her, as indicated by such frequent salutations as: "Darling Pussilein, my love!" -- "Darlichingen! Ich Kusse dich" -- "Yullalein, love, Kisses!" Over 150 of the letters are from Walter J. Fischel, an important German-Jewish scholar known internationally for his pioneering studies of Oriental Jewry, and two other men (about 25 letters each) with whom Yulla was having illicit affairs during the War years. The letters of all three men are remarkable for their impassioned, often wild declarations of love, and their frequent pleas to arrange meetings and to get married, if Yulla's husband would grant her a divorce. In the end, after an attempt to reconcile with her husband in 1945-1946, all four men were no match for Jacques Lipchitz, who first met Yulla in 1944, and married her in 1948. .

        Song

      (New York: Frederic Prokosch). 1941. First. First edition. Marbled paper self-wrappers with printed paper label. 12mo. Fine. One of 33 copies. Signed by the author. Although not stated in the book, a penciled note indicates that Prokosch recalled having this printed at the Peter Pauper press. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books." Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions," which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates four copies. .

        Sunburned Ulysses

      (Frederic Prokosch), Lisboa 1941 - First edition. Decorated marbled wrappers with white printed label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 22 copies, this copy is unnumbered, and marked in the author's hand as the "Author's Copy," Signed by the author, and inscribed by him beneath his signature: "with much love, for my Mami." A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books." Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions," which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally, he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. Of the 22 copies, *OCLC* locates five copies in institutions. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
