        Island Song

      Hong Kong: (Frederic Prokosch). 1956. First. First edition. Decorate and correugated paper self-wrappers with printed gold foil label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 44 copies, this is copy in unnumbered and designated by Prokosch as the "Author's Copy". Inscribed by the author. Extra label tipped-in. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". 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 five copies in institutions. .

        Woodcuts of New China.

      . Peking, Foreign Languages Press, 1956. 4to. A portfolio containing title page, two leaves of introduction and index, plus 40 wood-engravings of "modern" China. In original hardcover paper portfolio, with wood pattern print and title on front.* A fine set of prints by artists like Li Chun, Ku Yuan, Li Hua, Lin Chun, Chang Chien-Wen and others. The prints show everyday life in China in the 1950s. Typical titles for the illustrations are "the Shipyard"; "Railway surveyors", and "building the Han bridge". The realistic style used for these illustrations was promoted by the Chinese government under Mao as "social realism" and was in fact the only approved art style in that period. Rare, hasn't been on the market in a long time. Portfolio with the trace of a removed label, otherwise a very good copy..
