        3 eigenh. Briefe mit U. ("Boni").

      O. O. bzw. [Paris], 8. Oktober 1957 bzw. o. D.. Zusammen (1+1+2 =) 4 SS. auf 3 Bll. Gr.-4to und 8vo.. An seine Vertraute Bettina Hoenig in New York: "Ich freue mich, daß Du eine Wohnung hast. Ich kenne das Haus; - es ist da, wo ich auch mal mieten wollte u. wo oben im Apartment der Greta Keller die Margot v. Opel lebt. Ein Freund von mir lebte lange im Penthause nebenan [...] Es ging mir gut. Ich war nicht allein. Und es war schön. Ich habe meine Arbeit zwar vernachlässigt, aber zum erstenmale sang jemand - nach vielen Jahren - u. lachte im Hause herum, schwamm u. war ganz da. Es war nicht schwer, anderes zu vergessen. Was man nicht vergißt, ist man selbst, - aber darüber lächelt man auch, wenn soviel Leben u. Da-Sein um einen herumbebt u. leuchtet [...]" (Br. v. 8. Oktober 1957). - "Eine neue Füllfeder einschreiben (die alte, 10 Jahre treue ist endlich entschlafen) ist ein solches Kreuz, daß man entschuldigt ist zu schreiben. Außerdem (Glück! Hurra!) werden unsere Briefe kürzer u. in größeren Abständen (nicht ein Zeichen, daß wir uns nicht so viel zu sagen haben, wohl aber, daß unsere sogenannte Liebe langsam ausgehungert wird!)[.] Nichts passiert, also ist auch weniger zu schreiben, u. auch weniger zu denken [...] Der Vogel ist entweder glücklich u. beschäftigt oder wartet in Ruhe bis ich zurückkomme. Eine Hellseherin hier hat mir überraschende Dinge gesagt: Der Vogel habe eine Affaire, sei selbst der ag[g]ressive Teil, der andere sei vorsichtig, wolle nichts riskieren [...]" (undat. Brief). - "[...] Ich fahre morgen, Montag abend, nach P[orto] R[onco] u. werde dort gleich anfangen zu arbeiten. Ich bin ungeduldig, es zu tun, da die letzten Wochen es wieder unterbrochen hatten, u. ich will das Buch fertig mitbringen. Ich will auch keine weiteren Nachrichten über den Vogel hören, - höchstens, wenn - nein, nur, wenn sie mich beruhigen oder vorbereiten können auf irgend eine Attacke. Versuche auch nicht, herauszufinden, ob u. wann sie reist [...]" (undat. Brief aus [Paris] auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Vignette des Hotel Lancaster). - Zwei Briefe auf dünnem Luftpostpapier, einer davon stärker knittrig und mit stärkeren Randläsuren.

        Piedra de Sol

      Mexico: Tezontle [Fondo de Cultura Econ?a], 1957. Mexico: Tezontle [Fondo de Cultura Económica],, 1957. Octavo. Original pale buff wraps, printed in red and black. Housed in a black quarter leather on matching linen folding case, with title in single fillet gilt longitudinal panel to the spine. Two illustrations to the text. Wraps a little rubbed, and slightly rippled, light toning, else very good. First edition limited to 300 signed copies, this number 163. Original edition of the Mexican Nobel Prize winner's early masterpiece, the poem which represents the summation of his art at that point, the first clear expression of his uniquely Mexican voice, which has been variously described as "a high point of Mexican learned poetry"; "probably one of the best-known [poems] of Latin America in the second half of the 20th century" (Smith, Encyclopaedia of Latin American Literature); "a magnum opus of seismic dimensions with a lyrical exploration of eros, history, Meso-american/Hindu/and Greek symbols" (Hydra); and the poem "that definitively established Paz as a major international figure" (Sagetrieb). Composed as a single 584-line sentence, paralleling the 584-day synodic period of Venus as expressed on the Aztec stone calendars which give the piece its title, the last six lines loop back to the beginning suggesting a cyclical structure, but "this esoteric correlative design … does not circumscribe its subject. [It is] a lyrically discursive exploration of time and memory, of erotic love, or art and writing". Well represented institutionally, but no copy traced at auction.

Hinshaw & Lovelace, Lea 114. King, Women on the Cattle Trail and in the Roundup, p. 17: "This ranch history includes substantial information about Henrietta King." Lowman, Printer at the Pass 99n: "This book was originally planned as a 250-300 page private edition to be published on the occasion of the ranch centennial in 1953, but it grew steadily for the next four years.... The project grew from a modest private edition to a two-volume, 838-page trade book. The physical dimensions of the books itself, the 16-point Centaur type of the text, the ample page margins, and the expansive chapter head designs all suggest the vastness of the ranch. Typesetting was inspected page by page to insure that bad spacing and bad breaks were avoided. An original color technique was developed for color separation in the four, five, and seven-color illustrations.... The special edition was printed on all rag paper made especially for this book by the Curtis Paper Company. It is bound in heavy crush linen resembling the King Ranch saddle blanket with the running 'W' brand"; Printing Arts in Texas, p. 54: "Tom Lea's history of the King Ranch is one of the most important books ever to emerge from a Texas background. Its typographical achievement is equally distinguished." Reese, Six Score 69: "Perhaps the most exhaustive ranch history ever written, and a tremendous account of the cattle industry of south Texas." In 1885 Henrietta King inherited the debt-ridden ranch 500,000-acre ranch from her visionary but impractical husband. She ran the ranch until her death in 1925, developing important and early scientific techniques for beef production. The Santa Gertrudis breed, for which the King Ranch is now renowned, started under her direction. At her death, the ranch had grown to well over a million acres and she had cleared all debts, leaving an estate of over $5 million

Frank Goodwyn adds that "in addition to being an encyclopedic compendium of information on the ranch, the book is also a work of art." The King Ranch, located in south Texas between Corpus Christi and Brownsville, is one of the largest ranches in the world. (The world's largest is the 6,000,000-acre Anna Creek station in Australia, and the largest contiguous U.S. ranch is the Waggoner Ranch near Vernon, Texas.) The King Ranch comprises 825,000 acres and was founded in 1853 by Captain Richard King and Gideon K. Lewis. It comprises portions of six Texas counties, in four largely discontinuous sections called divisions. (Only the first two divisions border each other, and that border is relatively short.) The ranch was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.
