        Thirteen Poems

      1956. SHAHN, Ben. Thirteen Poems by Wilfred Owen. Illustrated with 15 reproductions of drawings and one wood-engraved portrait by Ben Shahn. Folio, bound in original half-morocco and slightly worn cardboard slipcase. Northampton: The Gehenna Press, 1956. |~||~||~||~||~| "One of the more ambitious books that this very talented artist has illustrated" (Garvey), and a very early work from Leonard Baskin's Gehenna Press. Baskin contributed the frontispiece which he engraved after Shahn's dawing. This is the first edition of Owen's poems in America, which are justly considered to be the most exquisite, the most musical, and perhaps the most bleak war poetry ever written. One of 400 copies in the original binding and slipcase, which is not always the case. The Artist and the Book 284. Franklin, Gehenna Press 8.

        Escape from Five Shadows

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company. 1956. First. First edition. Fine with ink owner name on front pastedown in near fine dustwrapper with a little rubbing on the front panel, and two tiny tears barely worthy of mention. The third of the author's three Houghton Mifflin hardcover westerns, from early in Leonard's career. He has gone on to become one of the most successful mystery novelists working today, and several of his works have been adapted to film. Only a small number of hardcover copies of this edition were printed, and most of them went to libraries (when copies surface on the market they usually have replaced endpapers and remnants of library markings). A superior copy of a notable rarity, avidly sought by both western and mystery collectors. .
