        Trial Sheets for Poems

      Black Mountain, NC: Black Mountain Print Shop, 1947. Loose leaves, letterpress printed in Futura on various types and dimensions of paper. Provenance: from Serendipity Books, with research notes and correspondence by Peter Howard laid in. Mary Caroline Richards, a graduate of Reed College in Portland, Oregon, joined the Black Mountain College Faculty in 1945, and was an important member of the faculty during its heyday, until she moved to Greenwich Village in the early 1950's with David Tudor. She later helped form the commune known as The Land, where she became an innovator in ceramics - the work for which she is best known - and developed theories that would inform her landmark 1964 book Centering in Pottery, Poetry and the Person. We believe these to be trial sheets for M. C. Richard's first book, Poems, which was handset and printed by the author in an edition of 50 copies in 1947 at Black Mountain - one of the earliest, and rarest Black Mountain College Print Shop publications. Most of the leaves (40) are printed on different colors of colored paper stock, similar to construction paper, all printed on the recto only, with duplicate sheets, some on different colors of paper, and in one case typeset differently. There is also 9 x 7" sheet printed on onionskin paper on recto only, perhaps in similar format to that of the finished, bound book, which was approximately 9" tall. Finally, there are also three folded sheets, 5 1/2" tall, which are printed on both recto and verso on watermarked paper and folded once into booklet form. This section prints six poems, only two of which are present in Poems; of the remaining four poems, we find two that are included in Imagine Inventing Yellow: New and Selected Poems (1991), but with different line breaks. The remaining two poems are not included in Imagine Inventing Yellow. All of the text of the finished book is represented, but some of the sheets differ - for example, one sheet prints the same couplet twice on the same sheet, while another prints it once. Given the variance of the sheets and the inclusion of poems which aren't present in the text of the published book, we believe these to be trial sheets rather than proof sheets, perhaps made as Richards was testing out the appearance and look of the pages, and deciding what poems to include in the final version. The sheets are accompanied by faxes, notes and correspondence between Peter Howard of Serendipity Books and others, collating the sheets and attempting to find out what these sheets are. Howard states that he believes them to be proof sheets or a different format. Peter's correspondence also notes also state that one page of the finished book is not present here, which begins with "walking over pulverized mariners. . . " (which Howard refers to as p. 16), but the text is present - because of the larger sheet size found here, that section of the text is present at the foot of the previous leaf. An artifact that illuminates the artistic process of the search for form and exemplifies the experimental approach of Black Mountain College at the time. OCLC locates three holdings, two in 8vo format, and a third, at Stanford, printed on 8 1/2 x 11" sheets such as the majority of these sheets. Sheets slightly brittle, with a couple of wormholes to the margin of several sheets, else very good.

        Kriath Kodesh [call to Yeshiva students]

      1947 - (JUDAICA""ZIONISM). Kriath Kodesh [Call to Yeshiva Students]. (Jerusalem): Kislev, 1947-48. Broadside (measures 10 by 13-1/2 inches), printed on recto. $1800.1947 Jerusalem Orthodox broadside against "the Zionists who wish to uproot the Torah," illustrative of the conflicts among Zionists and other factions in Jerusalem just prior to the creation of the state of Israel.This broadside states that it is the scholars of Torah who are the Neturei Karta, "the protectors of the city." "The forces which were contending over the nature of the new society were divided into three broad groups". Socialist Zionists, known as the Histadrut". middle-class elements [anti-Socialist Revisionists]". and the Orthodox, who could not imagine a Jewish presence in the land which did not exemplify the values and practices of the religious tradition" (Encyclopaedia Judaica). These three factions came to maturity as the Zionist settlement in Palestine increased tenfold, from roughly 60,000 in 1919 to 600,000 in the 1940s. This broadside goes on to claim, "Whomever has any relationship with the Zionists-even enlisting in the Haganah-becomes a partner in actions against Judaism." "[Orthodox elements] were dedicated to the building of an institutional power base for religious Jews, so that they could compete as equals with the other groups and provide equal opportunity in the new country for those who shared the Orthodox religious faith. This body of opinion was deeply concerned that the total temper of the Jewish community should not be secularized. They did not want to become a religious ghetto in a non-religious Jewish society, and they believed that it was their duty to bring religion even to those who opposed it". The struggle between the Socialist and the middle-class elements in Israel's society has been muted in the generation of statehood, for a mixed economy now prevails. The conflict over religion and its relationship to public life has, if anything, become sharper within the sovereign parliamentary life of the Jewish state" (Encyclopaedia Judaica). Text in Hebrew. Faint fold lines. Fine condition. Scarce.

        Scott-King's Modern Europe

      Chapman & Hall, 1947 - First edition; 8vo; original cloth and John Piper designed dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "from Evelyn Waugh March 1947." Bookplate of historian Hugh Trevor-Roper to the front pastedown. It is interesting that this copy belonged to Trevor-Roper as Waugh disliked him intensely, referring to him variously as "that blackguard" and "the demon don". In a letter of 1950 Waugh described his writing as 'vulgar'. Their most famous public spat was in the pages of the New Statesman in 1954 over relatively obscure points concerning the history of the Roman Catholic church in England. Waugh thought the appointment of Trevor- Roper as Regius Professor at Oxford as an insult to English Catholics. Waugh does not name the recipient of the inscription (he normally did), and it is interesting to speculate as to whether Waugh presented a copy of this work to a figure for whom he held a strong dislike. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with minor creasing to foot, lower panel and flaps a little spotted. A superb copy of this title with an interesting association.

      The Macmillan Company, New York 1947 - Michener's first book and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This copy with a very early INSCRIPTION dated 27 May 1947 SIGNED by the author: "Dear Jim,/The first serious writing I/did came your way. This one/had a better fortune, thanks to the/passing of time and some millions of/acres of the Pacific. It's been a treat knowing you./Jim Michener." We can only speculate who Jim was, but obviously he was of some importance to Michener very early in his career. Housed in a handsome and recent navy blue half morocco clamshell box. The brittleness of the cheap paper, found in every copy we have seen, is much in evidence with a very short tear at the top margin running through nearly every page of the book. The covers also have short tears near the spine at the top and bottom. The upper front corner is bumped, and a darker shade at the very head of the spine indicates that a dustwrapper was present on this book for quite some time. All that is left is the rear flap which is laid in. Good copy only, but a great, early inscription and housed in a Fine box [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Nightmare Alley (Original screenplay for the 1947 film, producer Darryl F Zanuck's working copy)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1947. Final Shooting script for the 1947 film. Copy belonging to studio head Darryl F. Zanuck, with his holograph pencil initials on the front wrapper and holograph pencil edits and changes throughout. Also included are two color tinted studio photographs from the film. Based on Gresham's 1946 novel, a dispassionate descent into the world of the carnival sideshows, based largely on the author's own experiences and investigations. Tyrone Power plays against type as a devious swindler who works his way from a traveling carnival to high society, only to inevitably fall down again. Filmed with a larger budget than most film noirs due to Power's stardom, the film was initially a flop but has since become regarded as a classic of the genre. Shot on location in Illinois. Beige titled wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 193 and production No. 2317, dated April 17, 1947. Title page present, dated April 17, 1947, noted as Shooting Final, with credits for screenwriter Furthman and novelist Graham. 168 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 165. Mimeographed.

      (Kuala Lumpur, Malaya: The Economy Printers. 1947). First. First (and only) edition. Small square quarto. 84pp., illustrated throughout with reproductions of the author's watercolors (in both black and white, and in color) painted while interned at the Changi prisoner of war camp.

Complimentary slip laid in with the letterhead of Malaya House in London.London-born Iris Parfitt was a teacher at the St. George School in Penang at the time Malaya fell to the Japanese (after the War she served for a time as the school's Principal). During the occupation she was an internee at both the Changi and Sime Road Camps. In Changi she was the chairperson of the camp's Entertainment Committee, and "played a key role in staging all kinds of entertainment in the camp. Capitalizing on the variety of ages, races, and nationalities, professions and social backgrounds of the internees she put on magnificent entertainments, that were remembered as a great source of encouragement, joviality and humor." (Michiko Nakahara. "The Civilian Women's Internment Camp in Singapore" in New Perspectives on the Japanese Occupation of Malaya and Singapore 2008). Parfitt's memoir provides one of the the most important eyewitness accounts of daily life in the infamous Japanese internment camps. Her watercolors and sketches, with their accompanying explanatory notes contain an enormous amount of highly detailed observation, and range in tone from the satirical to deeply poignant. Rare. OCLC locates six copies in the U.S. .

Elle fréquente ainsi le milieu cubiste, expose au Salon des Indépendants à partir de 1907 et au salon d'automne. Elle peint alors des portraits, des autoportraits et des groupes de personnages. Amie de Picasso et Derain elle devient la compagne et la muse du poète Guillaume Apollinaire. Après un mariage raté et un exil en Espagne au moment de la guerre elle rentre en France, et devient en quelque sorte une portraitiste du milieu mondain féminin ; son style s'épanouira dans un univers poétique, feutré, aux couleurs douces et pâles; elle excelle dans les portraits de femmes et de jeunes filles comme dans des scènes de la vie les mettant en jeu. Elle illustra également une trentaine d'ouvrages (Gide, Lewis Carroll, etc.) et créa un décor pour les ballets russes. Apollinaire a écrit que " l'art de Marie Laurencin danse comme Salomé entre celui de Picasso et celui de Rousseau ". Son oeuvre et sa vie, étonnamment libre pour l'époque, fascinent toujours beaucoup.
