        Robert Frost sends a fellow poet a copy of his book, signing his name and addressing both sides of the mailing box

      Mailing Box Signed ?R. Frost? twice, 8.75? x 6?. Two ?Parcel Post? labels addressed by Frost, one for each side of the box: FROM ?R. Frost / 25 Brewster St / Cambridge Mass? TO ?Mr. Harold Corbin / Lake Forest Academy / Lake Forest / Illinois.? Nine 3¢ Statue of Liberty stamps affixed and cancelled on one side. Frost has written ?Book? (part of the ?k? is scraped). The mailing box is in fair condition but the two address labels, each filled out and signed by Frost, are in fine condition. Harold Corbin was headmaster at Lake Forest Academy, Lake Forest, Illinois, from 1951-1969. He was a good friend and collector of Robert Frost. In fact, a signed manuscript by Frost of his poem ?The Objection To Being Stepped On,? dated October 18, 1957, in the Amherst (Mass.) College Archives is inscribed: ?For Florin and Harold Corbin At L.F.A. where it was first read aloud." A printed photograph ?Poet Robert Frost sits between Headmaster Harold Corbin and his wife, Florie Corbin, during Frost?s visit to Lake Forest Academy, October 1961? is included. Harold Corbin was also a poet whose books of poems, published in the 1980s and 1990s, include Counting I, Counting II, Counting III, Before I Sleep, and Nethering: New and Collected Poems. The book Frost sent is not present. There is no postmark on the mailing box, but 3¢ stamps were used as regular postage until 1958. Since Frost used nine 3¢ coil stamps, which came in a roll of 100, he most likely still had these stamps after rates were increased. It is possible that the book may have been In the Clearing, his first collection of new poems in 15 years. Published in 1962, the book includes ?The Gift Outright,? written for President Kennedy?s inauguration. An unsigned copy of this book is present. It is in very good condition, with original dust jacket. A previous owner has signed the title page adding ?Sept. 62.?

        A Collection of Warhol's early Work in Books and Magazines

      1951. AN ARCHIVE -- WARHOL AS BOOK DESIGNER WARHOL, Andy. A Collection of Warhol's Early Work in Books and Magazines. Comprised of 46 books and 10 magazines. Various formats, sizes and bindings, each as originally issued. Each item preserved in new cloth folding box. Various Places: 1951-2004.A nearly complete collection of Warhol's work as an illustrator, and as a designer of dust jackets for trade publications, as well as covers for magazines. This aspect of Warhol's creative output is little known, little collected, and the material has been largely ignored. A recent exhibition entitled Reading Warhol at the Brandhorst Museum in Munich brought much of the forgotten material to the attention of Warhol scholars and collectors. However, that exhibition covered only books and ephemera, and did not deal with his magazine covers. The majority of our collection documents Warhol's early work, beginning shortly after he arrived in New York from Pittsburgh in 1949. The importance of these illustrated book and magazine covers is easily understood when one sees how his later style evolved from the imagery seen in these early works. The collection includes 10 magazines for which Warhol designed the covers, including the celebrated cover for Esquire, all 5 issues of Time magazine, and his covers for Vogue, Playboy and Opera News. Lacking only four books listed in Reading Warhol, and not including the seven books published by Warhol himself in small handmade editions. The dust wrappers for the books published in the fifties and sixties are extremely rare and are now virtually impossible to find on the market. See: Reading Warhol, catalogue of exhibition at the Museum Brandhorst, September 18, 2013-January 12, 2014 (Munich: Hatje Cantz, 2013). A complete list of the collection is available upon request.

        Au moment voulu

      First Edition, review copy service. Very valuable and exciting autograph signed by the author to his mother and his sister: "To my very dear, / this book may be dangerous to write / can be dangerous to read / linked because the distance , / in all affection and gratitude / Eze, 24 December 1951. " Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relationship. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. As the passion of Blanchot for his mother, it is the turn of his work that we discover the finest examples: "Maybe the power of the mother figure she borrows its brightness to the same power fascination, and one could say that if the mother carries this fascinating attraction is as appearing when the child lives entirely under the gaze of fascination, it concentrates in itself all the powers of enchantment ". Cultivating absolute discretion, Blanchot pushed the art of erasing into his handwritten dedications generally brief and almost always written on cards attached to the rare books he offered his close friends. In contrast, in these precious items to his mother and sister, Blanchot offers in all its fragility and, in the privacy of this correspondence, his work focuses on a previously unknown personal look.

        70 Large Broadsides or Posters for The Saturday Evening Post

      [Philadelphia]: The Curtis Publishing Company. 1951-1960. A collection of 70 different broadsides or posters for The Saturday Evening Post. Each measuring 22' x 28". Overall near fine with some scattered bumps and small tears at the edges, with folds as issued. These broadsides were used at newsstands to promote the latest issue of the magazine with text above or below the enlarged image of that week's front cover usually touting one of the cover stories, but occasionally an interior article or a short story. The cover features the talents of a number of popular Post artists such as John Falter, George Hughes, John Clymer, Thornton Utz, Steven Dohanos, Amos Sewell, Constantin Alajalov, and others. They depict American life of the 1950s with a gentle mix of humor (teenage dating, fashion, popular music), social commentary (influence of television, expansion of the highway system, and women in the workplace), and illustrations of rural life. A wonderful collection of images of mid-century American life. .
