        Snow Song

      Paris: (Frederic Prokosch). 1949. First. First edition. Decorated self-wrappers with white printed label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 44 copies, this is copy "d" of 10 lettered copies on Sienese paper. There were also 10 copies each on Florentine, Venetian, and Roman paper, and four on Sicilian paper. Signed by the author. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books," this one issued as a Christmas Greeting. 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. OCLC locates six copies (of the total edition) in institutions. .

Fisher" A fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper, mildly faded at the spine as usual - the chocolate brown colour easily subject to sunning. Delightful drawings illustrate each letter of the alphabet: A is for dining Alone, B is for Bachelors, G is for Gluttony, E is for Exquisite, K is for Kosher; P is for Peas, W is for Wanton, Y is for Yak, Z is for Zakuski, "a Russian hors d'oeuvre", etc. In Alphabet for Gourmets, M.F.K. Fisher arranges a selection of her essays in a whimsical way that reveals the breadth & depth of her passion. Fisher alights on both long-time obsessions & idiosyncratic digressions. As usual, she liberates her readers from caution & slavish adherence to culinary tradition - & salts her writings with a healthy dose of humour. Books of the Century, pp. 114-15. Very uncommon Inscribed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Corners a bit bumped, near fine in an about fine dustwrapper with a very short tear. Warmly Inscribed by the author: "For George Swetman Esq. with the profound affection of his old friend and colleague. Henry Beston." A nature classic that captures the essence of place and that continues to endure, this copy comes with a wonderful eight page (both sides of four octavo leaves) Autograph Letter Signed twice by Beston on his Chimney Farm stationery to Mrs. Swetman sending the book, and explaining the creation of the book. In small part: "I wrote it a few years after I had emerged from War I. Being still sick at heart with this vast political massacre of the young by the young, I went as far as I could go to the world of nature and wonder, and just sat quiet awhile like the Bhudda under the Bo tree. After a while a religious sense of acceptance and peace possessed me, a sense I have never lost. After marriage, I bought from relatives the farm we now occupy, where I live very happily with my attendant bears, the chief of whom is my famous 'Oswald', an enchanting bear who on autumn nights is given permission to sleep by the open fire." Beston goes on to describe his life in Maine, and his upcoming trip to stay on a Maine island with a friend whose "occupation is the collaring of poor, innocent lobsters. I weep for them as the walrus wept for the oyster." With original envelope. A wonderful letter. .

T. 444 (mit 6 Abb.). - Erste Ausgabe. - "Typographisch und buchtechnisch hervorragend gestaltete Monographie über die holländische Epoche des Künstlers (1938-54)." (Hans Bolliger). – 2. (und letztes) Werk der "collection éditions duwaer". – Eines von insgesamt 300 numerierten Exemplaren. – Typographie und Gestaltung von Vordemberge-Gildewart. Das Vorwort von Hans Arp betitelt ".oasis de pureté." / ".reine eilande.".

Vordemberge-Gildewart hat die ungehefteten Bildtafeln im Album auch als Material für Ausstellungen angesehen, Ersatzausstellungen. Er hatte sein Werk im Album inszeniert. Die rundum zustimmende Kritik vermerkte die Übereinstimmung von Buchgestaltung und Buchinhalt."
