         Newspaper, #1-18 [Rare Complete Run]

      Self-Published 1957-1979, NY - A complete run of Green's self-published newspaper, Newspaper, which he founded to extol the writing of William Gaddis, whose first novel appeared in 1955 and was dismissed by critics: "jack green" (a pseudonym of Christopher Carlisle Reid) created "newspaper," and wrote as a literary critic, praising Gaddis' work, and his efforts are believed to have been the spur for the new edition of The Recognitions published in 1962. Gaddis' novel eventually made Time magazine's list of the 100 best novels from 1923 to 2005. Green published 17 issues of Newspaper from 1957-1966, at which point he closed Newspaper and refunded his subscribers, only to resurface in 1979 with issue #18, and then cease publication once again. This is a complete run: issues #1-17, on poor quality legal-sized paper with text on both sides, originally stapled in the upper left corner (staples now removed on all but one issue). The final issue is a small format, on better paper. Together with a 1966 list of the back issues and their prices, and a note from "jack green" (signed in type), dated 8/29/66 saying "im [sic] closing newspaper ive changed away from that kind of writing, or perhaps ive just run out of gas." With a calculation of the refund owed the subscriber. Over the course of publication, Green had branched out beyond Gaddis to cover other writers such as Joyce and Faulkner, and other topics such as voting and peyote (not simultaneously), William Reich, and insurance. One issue had two illustrations tipped onto the front page: one is detached, one is now missing. Underlinings in one issue; all but the final issue are heavily acidified; else a near fine set. Surprisingly, given its impact on the critical reception of William Gaddis' first novel -- and by extension on Gaddis himself and his overall body of work -- we could find no indication in OCLC that any institution holds a complete collection.

         Coup de Grâce

      New York: Farrar, Strauss and Cudahy, 1957. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. 1st American edition. A contemporary, signed, inscription from Yourcenar, fills the front free endpaper with a long quotation. Fine in fine dustjacket. Marguerite Yourcenar is under appreciated but will ambush you like identity theft. In Coup de Grâce a Prussian officer murders the woman who loves him because he loves her brother, in line with the central figures throughout her fiction, men torn between their passions and society's demands, during key moments of history. After WW II, she lived in France and the U. S. with her partner, Grace Frick, who translated this book into English. In 1950 they moved to Maine, and in 1980 (go Margot) Yourcenar became the first woman elected to the Academie Française (all customs were once eccentricities), that elitist society, created by Cardinal Richelieu in 1634 (the very Richelieu from The Three Musketeers), limited to 40 constituents entrusted with guarding French culture and to which admission is only upon the death of a sitting member (you can write your own joke here)_______________.

         On Poetry and Poets

      London: Faber and Faber, 1957. First Edition. [8], 262 pp. 8vo. Original blue cloth; printed dust jacket. Closed tear at top of front panel, some light chipping at ends of spine panel. First Edition. [8], 262 pp. 8vo. With ALS to Louis Untermeyer. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, WITH A REVEALING LETTER BY ELIOT. Louis Untermeyer's copy, with newspaper clippings neatly pinned and laid-in at front and with a TLS from Eliot mounted on the pastedown, 16 August 1961. Eliot replies to the author-editor's request for a submission of a 6-10 page typescript, with an advance of $1,000, intended for children. "I am afraid I cannot run to that length for a script intended for children of 6 to 8. Nor do I believe I could or should try to compose a children's story limited to a vocabulary of 250 words laid down in advance. I have only written verse for children, and I have always maintainted the view, judging from the children of my acquaintance, is correct, that children like long and euphonious words, without understanding them. Indeed, for me as a child, and I am sure for any intelligent child who likes reading the new and unknown words are part of the fun. They may even be words that the child would not use until it is grown up. So I am afraid I cannot be one of your distinguished contributors." Untermeyer and his wife Bryna Ivens Untermeyer created a number of books for young people in the series Golden Treasury of Children's Literature. He edited for the Crowell-Collier Press the Modern Masters for Children Series in the 1960s. It is most likely for this that he solicited a submission from Eliot. Eliot's most famous work for children was 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats' [1939]. Gallup A69

         American Solider Photo Album

      Okinawa, 1957. Near Fine. Oblong photo album measuring 11" x 15". Black lacquer over wooden boards accented with inlaid pieces of mother of pearl appliques, and some hand-painted details, showing a mountain and two tradition-style Japanese buildings beside a body of water; album tied with silk cords. Very good plus with chips and tears. A collection of 73 photographs and snapshots of American soldiers stationed in Okinawa, at Sobe camp in the 1950's. The majority of the assemblage are black and white photos measuring 3.5" x 5" with some 3.5" x 2.25", two 8"x10", and a 5.5" x 14" group photo. All images are clear, a few have captions either in the margins or on the verso of the photo. The group photo is laid in at the rear of the album and is creased, with one section at the right margin torn away, causing minor loss. The album depicts soldiers on duty, a work in the machine shops, views of the base camp, "clowning in the China Sea," playing baseball and basketball, along with locals and town businesses. A picture of a camp sign indicates the soldier/photographer was stationed at Sobe Area, Rycom Gen. Depot, 65th Engineer Heavy Shop Company, 596th Engineer Maintenance Company, 526th Engineer Maintenance Department." A dozen of the photos show both African American and white soldiers sharing the basketball court, work duties, and the baseball field. One of the 8" x 10" photos shows a group of black and white soldiers sharing a traditional meal, seated on the floor around a table, all diligently employing their chopsticks. A caption on one of the baseball game photos identities it as being between the Sobe Engineers and the Magushaki [Hagushaki?] bombers, a Japanese team, at Ishikawa Beach. The final picture of the group is taken in front of a U.S. Army plane, dated 1957 and personalized, "Good Luck Lt. Bass," and is signed by seven men.
