        On Poetry and Poets

      London: Faber and Faber, [1957]. 8vo. [8], 262 pp. Original blue cloth; printed dust jacket. Closed tear at top of front panel, some light chipping at ends of spine panel. FIRST EDITION. 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.

        Recollections of the Civil War 1861-1865

      Harley Bronson Cooper, [Lynbrook, New York 1957 - Unpublished. Paper print photograph portrait inserted. Typescript, 171 pp., rectos only. 1 vols. 4to. Richly detailed narrative account of the Civil War experiences of Irving Bronson [born ca. 1843], 107th New York Volunteers, Company C, from his enlistment at Elmira 29 July 1862 through his mustering out in June 1865. These reminiscences were addressed as letters to his nephew, circa 1906 (from internal evidence). Bronson was promoted to first lieutenant in April 1863 after Chancellorsville, and was in effective command of his company for more than a year although his rank of captain was not recognized. He was at Spanglers Spring during Gettysburg and listened to the Union response to Pickett's charge ("a long continuous discharge of musketry") but did not take part. He saw action during the campaign for Atlanta, from Resaca (15 May 1864) through the taking of the city (22 July); the siege of Savannah; the northward march chasing Joe Wheeler through the Carolinas, including the capture through bluffing of Chesterfield Court House, and the battle for Averysboro; at Goldsboro, N.C., they learned of the Fall of Richmond, and the regiment was at Smithfield when news of the surrender reached them. Barrels of applejack were broached in celebration, cut short when they learned of Lincoln's assassination. Bronson described parades in Washington and seeing Grant receive Sherman (who refused to shake hands with Stanton). The company returned to Elmira in early June 1865.The narrative includes much detail on foraging, night riding after bushwhackers, personalities in the company, burning out the house of a Rebel congressman, looting, and Bronson signing ("the two-handed alphabet") to the children of an asylum for the deaf they entered after the end of hostilities.This typescript includes a transcript of a letter from historian Bruce Catton at American Heritage noting that he read the memoir with interest; a copy of the typescript is recorded in the Bruce Catton Papers at the Citadel.UNPUBLISHED. Black buckram, some pencil annotations in margins. Fine Paper print photograph portrait inserted. Typescript, 171 pp., rectos only. 1 vols. 4to

        CAT IN THE HAT

      - SEUSS,DR. THE CAT IN THE HAT. NY:Random Hse. (1957). 8vo, flat paper over boards (not glazed paper), 61p., Fine in dw with price intact (dw has small paper restoration on spine, some soil, closed tear and fraying). 1st edition of Seuss's first reader (correct binding paper and price). The original price of this book is the cause of considerable confusion. This first reader was originally published at $2.00. When the publishers decided to make a series of beginning readers, they priced all of them at $1.95 and lowered the price of this title to conform, thus the price of this book went down instead of up as time went by. Illustrated in bright color throughout. In addition to becoming a household name, the Cat In The Hat is extremely important in the history of education and children's literature. At the same time that it was amusing, it was bringing the basic concepts of reading to tens of thousands of little children who were learning without being "taught". It was a marked departure from the boring Dick and Jane type reader. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. Teachers began to use this book in their classrooms and it was not long before the Cat In The Hat became an American icon. First editions of this title are extremely scarce.

        The Ephesian Story. Translated and Introduced by Paul Turner.

      Golden Cockerel Press. 1957. 8vo., original full green morocco, boards with gilt line blocks, spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated with collotype reproductions of 6 brush drawings by Eric Fraser. Spine slightly darkened, otherwise a very good copy. Preserved in original cloth slipcase. Limited edition of 300 numbered copies, this one of 75 specially bound and with an extra suite of the pictures, including one not printed in the book. "To illustrate this sister-volume to Apollonius of Tyre, published the previous year, I turned to Eric Fraser, who of course was not an engraver and had never worked with me before. He made wash drawings on linoleum which we printed over a terracotta tint which we repeated in the canvas of the ordinary bindings. The separate set of drawings accompanying the specials were printed without the terracotta background. These two volumes pleased me much". (Cock- a-hoop 207) From the library of Thomas Yoseloff, the last owner of the Golden Cockerel Press, by family descent, but with no ownership markings.
