        The Variorum Edition of the Poems of W. B. Yeats

      The Macmillan Company, NY, 1957. Very Good with no dust jacket. Limited Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover Signed, Limited edition (No. 642 of 825). Signed by W. B. Yeats on the limitation page. Quarter bound in publisher's red cloth over gray cloth, gilt lettering on spine, top edge blue. Includes Preface, Introduction, Bibliography, Collations, Appendices, Index to Titles, and Index to First Lines. In the 1930's, W. B. Yeats signed 825 unbound pages, and his publisher, The Macmillan Company, held them. In 1939 Yeats died. In 1957 the signed sheets were bound into the first 825 copies of the Variorum Edition. Each copy was then wrapped for mailing. Somehow, 250 copies were misplaced in the Macmillan warehouse in New York. They turned up in the summer of 1963 when the contents of the warhouse were moved to New Jersey. All 250 copies were purchased by Kroch's & Brentano's for the members of the First Edition Circle. This is the definitive variorum edition of Yeats' poems. It was the editors' intention to note all of the changes that Yeats made to his poems in the course of their successive printings. The record begins in 1885 with the edition of The Dublin University Review which contained first two published poems; it ends with the two-volume definitive edition of his poetry in 1949, the proofs of which he had corrected shortly before his death in 1939. Poems that he published separately, in either periodical or book, but that he did not include in the definitive edition are included here in the section entitled "Poems Not Included in the Definitive Edition." . This is an extremely clean, little-used copy, unmarked, tight and square; the final page (only) is lightly creased, with a couple of small, closed tears, else as new. The scarce original slipcase is mildly worn along the fore-edges only, and lightly sunned, but structurally sound. VERY GOOD/VERY GOOD (slipcase). Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall. xxxv, 884 pp. Signed by Author

      JONATHAN CAPE 1957 - First Edition, First Printing of FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE by Ian Fleming. Published by Jonathan Cape of London 1957. Only 15,000 copies of the first edition, first printing of this title were published, making this title far more rare than Dr. No or Goldfinger, both of which had between 20,000-24,000 first editions printed. The book comes with an original stunning bright first edition dust jacket. Original crisp black covered boards with a silver gun and red rose to the front of the boards. Unusually bright unfaded red titles to spine. Book is in great condition with crisp, square boards with sharp corners with one very tiny tip bump. The boards are clean with no edgewear. The book has a tight and square binding. The title is still bright red with no fading or oxidation which is quite unusual for this title as the title is often found faded or the red/orange tones have turned to brown. The end papers are clean with no book plates, no book store stamps, no owner names and no inscriptions. A few very faded small spot dots to front end paper, and outside of page block. The internal pages and end papers are bright, clean and flat with No marks, No inscriptions, No stains, No bent pages and No foxing. Beautiful bright clean book. Please see images for details. The original first edition dust jacket is in beautiful, bright condition for this title having benefited from very slight restoration by an expert paper conservationist to the spine tips and as such presents as a near fine example. This jacket is usually found in poor condition with large chips, and badly damaged and sunned (darkened) spines,and often large chunks of the spine completely missing. The colors tones of this jacket are usually bright with no toning or darkening to the spine as is otherwise common with this jacket. The jacket has No rips, No tears, No edgewear, No stains, but slight to inner flaps. Otherwise No chips, No rubbing, No foxing and No stains. Beautiful bright jacket which presents the book very nicely. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

      Published in San Francisco by the Institute of Historical Cartography; volume I printed by the Grabhorn Press, volumes II-V printed by Taylor & Taylor and James Printing using the designs of Edwin and Robert Grabhorn 1957 - 368 x 264 mm (14 1/2 x 10 3/8). Five volumes bound in six. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. Publisher's gray linen boards backed with textured buckram, flat spine. In apparently original plain brown dust jackets with ink titling on spines. WITH 374 MAPS, as called for, five in color, 27 folding. Front free endpaper of first volume INSCRIBED TO IRVING W. ROBBINS, JR. AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR; front pastedown with Robbins' bookplate; prospectus and envelope containing obituaries of Wheat laid in at front of volume I. Dust jackets a bit creased and frayed (though not in tatters), one minor corner crease to a map, otherwise the volumes themselves IN EXTREMELY FINE CONDITION, clean, fresh, and bright inside and out. This is a monumental work tracing the cartography of the American West from Coronado's "entrada" in 1540 through the U.S. Geological Survey in 1860. San Francisco lawyer Carl Wheat (1893-1966) pursued the history of the American West as an avocation, and in the process became a respected expert in Californiana. In preparing this work, he spent years seeking out every map--manuscript or printed--documenting the exploration of the American West, and the most significant and interesting specimens have been reproduced here, with discussions of their origins, accuracy, and contribution to knowledge. Volume I covers "The Spanish Entrada to the Louisiana Purchase, 1540-1804"; volume II "From Lewis and Clark to Fremont, 1804-1845"; volume III "From the Mexican War to the Boundary Surveys, 1846-1854"; volume IV "From the Pacific Railroad Surveys to the Onset of the Civil War, 1855-1860"; and volume V "From the Civil War to the Geological Survey." Our set has the bonus of an inscription from one bibliophile to another. Noted California collector Irving W. Robbins, Jr. (1919-95) had two main focuses: fine press books and Western Americana, obviously combined in this item. Robbins served as honorary curator of rare books and manuscripts at Stanford, and donated his Ashendene collection to the university library. He received the prestigious Warren R. Howell Award for distinguished service and exceptional contributions to the development of libraries and special collections at Stanford in 1986. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Un précurseur de Marcel Proust : René Béhaine. - Treize lettres autographes signées, dont quatre lettres adressées à l'éditeur de La Moisson des Morts, datant de 1957 et 11 lettres dont 3 cartes recto-verso et une carte postale s'échelonnant de 1960 à 1965, adressées à un libraire. La première partie de la correspondance commence ainsi : " Monsieur, Madame Léon Daudet m'apprend que vous fondez une maison d'édition. Dans quelles conditions accepteriez-vous en principe d'éditer un de mes livres. N'étant ni démocrate, ni juif, j'ai dû rompre avec Robert Laffont. [.]. Un groupe d'écrivains s'est constitué pour me soutenir (Thérive, Auguste Bailly, Robert Poulet, Paul Morand, Maurois, Maximilien Vox, Yves Gandon et, chose assez curieuse, c'est Edgar Faure, que je ne connais pas, qui en est le président d'honneur). [.] Etes-vous en mesure d'assurer une diffusion indispensable ? Tout est là. [.]". La seconde partie de la correspondance s'adresse à un libraire qui souhaite réaliser une exposition sur René Béhaine : ce dernier en est évidemment touché et répète à son interlocuteur les raisons de son insuccès : son jugement sur les juifs et la démocratie, le peu ou la mauvaise publicité faite à son oeuvre par ses éditeurs, etc. Il écrit à ce sujet en mai 1960 : " Savez-vous [.] ce que mes deux derniers livres m'ont rapporté ? Un chapeau, un panama que m'envoya avec deux colis de café de son hacienda un lecteur de la République de l'Equateur ! ? De mon éditeur : rien. ". - Manuscrit d'une page et demi, signé, comportant l'indication " Philo ", à la fin duquel Béhaine a écrit : " à recopier jusque là " puis " en l'écrivant, j'ai failli laisser brûler mon déjeuner - étant à la fois sportif, philosophe, bonne à tout faire et écrivain. ". - Manuscrit de deux pages sur deux feuillets (210 X 270), intitulé " 88 bis ". Ces manuscrits auraient été publiés dans les Ecrits de Paris de novembre 1959 d'après la note d'une lettre écrite en mars 1960. - Six photographies noir et blanc réalisées par " Paul-Louis. Studio-Starlet à Nice " : René Béhaine nageant, bêchant, taillant une haie, se promenant avec son chien, conversant avec une élégante et un portrait. - Une lettre autographe signée de Charles MAURRAS à en-tête de " L'Action Française " et datée " 24 mai 1911 " adressée à " Mon Cher Ami ". - Article d'Albert Feuillerat intitulé " Un précurseur de Marcel Proust : René Béhaine ", publié dans la Chronique des lettres du Bulletin des Etudes françaises, Montréal, mars 1948. Sept pages (210 X 268) imprimées. - Article imprimé de Maurice Chapelan paru dans le journal L'Indépendant à l'occasion du décès de René Béhaine. Si l'oeuvre de René BEHAINE n'a pas atteint la postérité que son auteur pouvait désiré, il n'en demeure pas moins qu'elle compte des lecteurs attentifs, voire enthousiastes, comme le démontre cet extrait de l'article de Maurice Chapelan : "Beaucoup de gens se demanderont, surtout dans les générations nouvelles : qui est René Béhaine ? Il faut répondre : le romancier le plus méconnu de notre siècle et, aux yeux de quelques-uns, le plus grand. En cinquante ans, il a publié les seize volumes (certains énormes) d'une série intitulée "Histoire d'une société". Aucun d'eux n'a réussi à obtenir une audience notable." Albert Feuillerat de son côté considère l'oeuvre de Béhaine comme " l'un des monuments les plus considérables de la littérature française du XXème siècle". René Béhaine a été proposé en 1961 pour le Prix Nobel de littérature. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
