        An Astonished Eye Looks Out of the Air

      Waldport, Oregon: Untide Press. 1945. First. First edition, first impression. Wrappers with applied title piece. Some tape shadows to the wrappers, one staple pulled through, else a very good copy. The first printing of 1800 copies was rendered unfit for release through a printer's error. All were destroyed except for about 70 copies, which were distributed with the second impression, with no known differentiation. Eventually 23 copies of the 70 copies of the first impression came into Patchen's hand, and he created a limited edition of 11 copies, with a hand-lettered limitation page (where Patchen relates this sequence of events). This is copy number 2 of the 11, and is Signed by the author. Additionally Inscribed by the author: "for Arthur, a good human being whose friend I am proud to be. Kenneth. June 21, 1946." The recipient was Arthur Sturcke, a now little-remembered painter and pacifist who exhibited in the 1930s and 1940s, and who did much to help and support Patchen. Patchen mentions him in his book Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer in a dialogue discussing art and artists: "And what about DeNiro? There is a serious young painter. All right what about Kamrowski? -- Or Lee Bell? Or Jackson Pollock? -- Or Arthur Sturcke?" Beautifully printed small collection of poems printed in a conscientious objectors' camp. Rare. .

        Supplement One: The American Language

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1945. First. First edition. Fine in modestly age-toned, near fine dustwrapper with a short tear at one fold. Nicely Inscribed by the author to an important literary editor: "My venerable colleague Bernard Smith to recall our joint sweating for art and truth. H.L. Mencken. Aug. 20, 1945." Smith was editor-in-chief at Knopf where he was known for editing B. Traven, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Langston Hughes, and many others. In 1947 he migrated to Hollywood where he was involved in the production of such films as How the West Was Won, Elmer Gantry, and Cheyenne Autumn. Smith shared a sometimes contentious relationship with the sharp-tongued Mencken, who once called Smith "a Jew, and moreover, a jackass." A significant association. .

        POSTER - Plaza de Toros de Vista-Alegre - Bilbao

      Ortega, Valencia 1945 - This is not a book but a wonderfully colourful ORIGINAL 1945 Spanish Bullfighting Poster. Measuring 99cm x 54.5cm, it is by Ibanez Palau and it advertises a bullfighting event in Bilbao for 11 March 1945 starring the matadors Fernando Nino del Barrio II, Gumer Galvan and Pepe Canto. The poster was printed by Ortega of Valencia and it bears the printer's name at the bottom and also the square stamp of authenticity to the lower right side. The brittle poster, whilst all original, has folds and creases, as well as damage to the right and bottom edges. All of this could be rectified by a skilled archivist and, of course, the poster would be best conserved by professional linen-backing. We believe that few of these would have survived so long in anything approaching collectable condition, as they were meant to be pasted up on billboards. Our shop acquired this poster (one of a collection of 5) many years ago from a customer who used to live in Spain. We're now having a clear out of our basement and we have decided to put it on sale internationally.The poster will be sent, well packed, in a sturdy tube. Please note that by selling such a piece of original art, we do not necessarily approve of or support the sport of bullfighting.

        The Crack-Up.

      New Directions, New York 1945 - First edition, first printing. Octavo, original half cloth. In very good condition, lacking the dust jacket. Inscribed by Edmund Wilson, who served as editor to this posthumous Fitzgerald work, "To Frangeon L. Jones with the best regards of Edmund Wilson Peterborough Aug. 16, 1964". Laid into the book is the newspaper article from August 17,1964 regarding Edmund Wilson's presentation of the Edward MacDowell Medal at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. he Crack-Up tells the story of Fitzgerald's sudden descent at the age of thirty-nine from glamorous success to empty despair, and his determined recovery. Contains letters to and from Gertrude Stein, Edith Wharton, T.S. Eliot and John Dos Passos." So begins a collection of essays which can be seen as a reflection of the low point of Fitzgerald's career. Indeed, the essays were poorly received when first published in Esquire magazine in 1936, and many were critical of his personal revelations. Nonetheless, their popular has resurged and "[t]he essays stand today as a compelling psychological portrait and an illustration of an important Fitzgerald theme" (Tracy Simmons).

        Il Canzoniere (1900-1945).

      - Roma, Giulio Einaudi, 1945. In 8vo (cm. 20). Legatura originale di lusso in tela grezza con tassello rosso e tit. in oro; pp. 610 (2). Questa edizione, in parte originale, fu a lungo desiderata da Saba, che negli anni '20 e '30 aveva più volte avviato trattative con vari editori, tra cui Preda e Carabba, per un nuovo "Canzoniere" esteso alla produzione della maturità e in copenso allegerito nelle parti iniziali. Purtroppo, nemmeno il Sba libraio poté essere soddisfatto si una veste editoriale che risentiva delle ristrettezze del tempo di guerra, la carta grigiastra appariva "sudicia" ai suoi occhi e la legatura si dimostrò approssimativa in parecchi esemplari. Per rimediare, almeno in parte, a quest'ultimo difetto, l'editore fece legare in tela rigida alcune centinaia delle 2900 copie della tiratura. G. castellani, Bibl. delle ediz. orig. di U. Saba,

        WARS I HAVE SEEN. Signed.

      Batsford, London 1945 - [Beaton, Cecil] Stein, Gertrude. WARS I HAVE SEEN. Signed. London: Batsford, 1945. "A nice war is a war where everybody who is heroic is a hero, and everybody more or less is a hero in a nice war". First Edition. 8vo., 191pp. Blue cloth stamped darker blue title to spine. A near fine copy in a superb, bright panorama dustwrapper illustrated by Cecil Beaton. [Bookseller's sticker at the top of the inside flap]. Inscribed in a later hand by Stein in blue fountain pen at the bottom of her Cecil Beaton frontis. portrait, to John James, an American journalist living in France to whom she inscribed a number of books: "To John James who says Ma''am so ? from Kentucky / Always / Gertrude Stein / May / 46". Stein lived until July of 1946. Probably the toughest Stein A Item to find signed & virtually impossible to find as a Presentation Copy. An extremely good example. In "Wars I Have Seen" (1945), her memoir of the Second World War, Gertrude Stein writes of the remarkable kindness of a young Frenchman named Paul Genin, the owner of a silk factory in Lyons and a country neighbor, who came to her after America entered the war and asked if she needed money. She did - the funds from America on which she and Alice B. Toklas depended no longer arrived - and he offered her a matching monthly stipend. Stein and Toklas lived on Genin's kindness for six months, after which Stein sold a Cézanne ("quite quietly to some one who came to see me") and no longer needed money. "And so I thanked Paul Genin and paid him back and he said if you ever need me just tell me, and that was that." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Folded Leaf

      New York: Harper and Brothers. 1945. First. First edition. Fine in a presentable, about very good dustwrapper with shallow chipping at the extremities and a scrape on the spine. The author's third book, a cheaply produced wartime novel. This copy Inscribed in the year of publication to his longtime colleague, Berton Roueche, with a passage from the novel: "March, 1945. For Berton Roueche with best regards, Bill Maxwell. 'If pursued, the truth withdraws, puts on one false face after another, and finally goes underground where it can only be got at in the complex, agonizing absurdity of dreams.'" A wonderful inscription, and an important association. Dr. Roueche wrote about medicine and public health for The New Yorker in the 1940s and '50s, and was especially known for his narrative of doctors as detectives confronting mysterious illnesses and environmental health issues. His work helped to spawn a genre that has since extended to detective fiction, television, and movies. .
