        Gedichte, Entwürfe zu Gedichten und Bruchstücke aus den Jahren MDCCXCVI-MDCCCIV

      Aurora, NY, and Lexington, KY: Stamperia del Santuccio, 1949. Large quarto. 254pp. One of 51 copies. Victor Hammer greatly admired Hölderlin's lyrical poetry. This volume represents a near complete collection of the poet's work between the years 1796 and 1804, printed in the original German as Hammer believed was the proper way to do the poems full justice. Illustrated with a single brass-plate engraving by Hammer showing the poet in the pose of the Seer, a likeness of Hölderlin taken from a 1792 pastel drawing of him by F. C. Hiemer. Known as Hammer's "American masterpiece," Hölderlin's Gedichte is number XI in the printer's "Opus" series of major works and the first book he issued under his old Stamperia del Santuccio imprint after emigrating to the United States from Europe. Being the first major book printed in American Uncial, it is described by Joseph Blumenthal as "a vigorous, full-bodied, sophisticated letter, with an archaic sense of history and culture." Hammer himself said he hoped with Uncial to "fuse Roman and black letter, those two national letter forms, into a new unity." & & The book is printed on handmade Italian Magnani paper, which came from the same mill that Hammer used when he was in Europe. Initially, he printed fifty copies of the title-page on domestic machine-made paper, but he promptly deemed that paper inferior and went back to what he knew and trusted. The result is a masterfully printed book on sumptuous paper that is a pleasure to behold and to handle; its beauty, as Blumenthal notes, is based on "the rare and subtle elegance of typographic design and proportion, of type on paper, and the perfection of its presswork." Bound in plain, gray boards with a paper label to the spine. Slight soiling to boards, and just a hint of rubbing to spine ends, else a fine copy of one of the most important press books of the twentieth century. With the bookplate of renowned Princeton Germanist Victor Lang. Prospectus laid in. Together with: Hammer, Victor. A Dialogue on the Uncial. Aurora, NY, 1946. One of 350 copies. Inscribed by Hammer to the noted literary scholar, Erich Kahler. All housed in a cloth folding case.

        Men At War, INSCRIBED BY WINSTON S. CHURCHILL

      INSCRIBED BY WINSTON S. CHURCHILL AND DATED 1949 IN HIS HAND on the half title. First edition, later printing. This is the only copy we have ever seen or heard of inscribed by Churchill, whose contribution to the volume, "The Cavalry Charge at Omdurman", appears at p. 813. The inscription is an excellent example. It reads "Winston S. Churchill" with "1949" appearing below written in black ink. The ink shows just a bit of age-spreading and is visible on the reverse of the thin paper. Consistent with Churchill's deteriorating health in 1949, there is just a hint of shakiness to the signature. The condition of the book itself is very good in a very good dust jacket. As with a first edition, the top edge is stained yellow and the $3.00 price is present on the dust jacket front flap. However, the words "First Edition" do not appear on the dj flap and there is no "A" on the copyright page. The black boards and spine are clean with bright gilt and only a trivial hint of shelfwear and tiny bumps to both corners of the rear board. The contents are bright and tight with no internal spotting. There is transfer browning to the pastedown and endpapers and an inked owners name dated "Christmas, 1942" on the ffep (confirming that this is an early printing given that the first printing was published 22 October 1942). The yellow-stained top edge retains bright color with very light soiling. The fore and bottom edges of the text block show very light spotting. The black and white dust jacket is clean and unclipped, but shows some edgewear, most notably wrinkling to .125 inch at both the head and tail of the spine and at the corners of the front flap fold. A truly rare prize inscribed thus. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B81.1, Hannemann A19.

There is transfer browning to the pastedown and endpapers and an inked owners name dated "Christmas, 1942" on the ffep (confirming that this is an early printing given that the first printing was published 22 October 1942). The yellow-stained top edge retains bright color with very light soiling. The fore and bottom edges of the text block show very light spotting. The black and white dust jacket is clean and unclipped, but shows some edgewear, most notably wrinkling to .125 inch at both the head and tail of the spine and at the corners of the front flap fold. A truly rare prize inscribed thus. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B81.1, Hannemann A19.

        The Sheltering Sky

      London: Lehmann. (1949). The first edition of Bowles's landmark first novel, about three young Westerners encountering the alien culture of North Africa, to their ultimate misfortune. One critic commented that Bowles was "a master of cruelty and isolation and the ironies of the search for meaning in an inadequately understood environment." The encounter with the Other; the limits of not only one's knowledge but most especially the knowledge of the extent of one's ignorance: these form the underlying themes of a novel whose setting is as much a character as the people themselves are. One of the seminal novels of the Beat generation and an influential book in the decades since. Printed in an edition of only 4000 copies. Upper corners bumped, sunning to board edges; near fine in a very good dust, spine-tanned dust jacket with a tear to the lower front spine fold and a few small edge chips. A cheaply produced postwar book, this is a better than usual copy. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, on printed personalized stationery with an imprint of "Fantasmagoria," Big Sur, California, July 31, 1949

      To Bruno Adriani, Miller mentions French author Arthur Rimbaud and Hermann Hesse's classic, "Siddhartha." "Do you recall ever seeing a photograph of Rimbaud's mother? Mermod in Lausanne are bringing out the (2) parts of my work on Rimbaud in French, this year. Letter from H. L. Mermod advises no photo of the mother in the famous Matarosso Collection. Yet I saw one of her (Vitalie) in an old issue of 'Labyrinthe' (Mastarosso Coll too!). Wonder if this was a mistake of the printer? I suppose Mermod wishes to include some photos in the book. Roger Cornaz is doing the translation. Did you ever know Gerhart Muench (composer & pianist) from Dresden? He's in Altadema now and invites me frequently - rather amazing letters. Just read Hesse's 'Siddhartha' in French...Depresses me tremendously....." He signs, "Henry Miller."
