        [Portfolio]: Poems [Eight Northwest Poets]

      Portland: Portland Art Museum. 1959. First. Portfolio. Eight gatefold pamphlets, each made from folio sheets folded twice to form eight pages. All housed in an envelope hand labeled "Eight Northwest Poets" along with each poet's name. Near fine with very light toning and a chip to the corner of one pamphlet (Stafford) in a very good envelope toned and chipped at the corners.A series of eight matched portfolios published by the Portland Art Museum for the Northwest Poetry Meeting on July 9-12, 1959 and held in connection with an art exhibit the following week. Each pamphlet paired a poet with a painter or sculptor (many of whom were important Northwest artists) who provided a cover image for each pamphlet. The most notable pamphlet comes from William Stafford and is one of his earliest separately published items, a collection of seven poems with accompanying art by Sally Haley, that predates his first professionally published book by a year. Also included are the first separately published works of Richard Hugo and Carolyn Kizer with art from Louise Bunce and Hilda Morris respectively. Additional contributors include poets John Haislip, Carol Hall, Kenneth O. Hanson, Robert Huff, and David Wagoner; and artists Margaret Tompkins, James McGarrell, Milton Wilson, Tony Mellara, and William Ivey. While individual issues from this important portfolio appear on the market, complete sets are rare with only four sets listed on OCLC. .

        Shakespeare and Company

      1959 - BEACH, Sylvia. Shakespeare and Company. New York: Hourcourt, Brace, 1959. Octavo, original ivory cloth, original dust jacket. $12,000.First edition of Sylvia Beach's memoir, "particularly valuable for the many insights into Joyce's work and the authentic personal views it provides of the man himself" (New York Times), a scarce presentation copy inscribed by Beach above and below the half title, "For Julian, with Sylvia's very affectionate [Shakespeare and Company] regards," in original dust jacket.It was in Sylvia Beach's legendary Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, that "James Joyce's Ulysses was born." In her memoir, Shakespeare and Company, Beach tells her story "with simplicity, freshness and modesty. And in doing so she succeeds in bringing back that whole small""but intensely creative""world around her bookshop and that of her friend, Adrienne Monnier". which was the center of so much French literary activity." Her book "is particularly valuable for the many critical insights into Joyce's work and the authentic personal views it provides of the man himself." After her publication of Ulysses "on Joyce's birthday, Feb. 2, 1922, Shakespeare and Company was known to writers the world over. No one failed to call". but it is finally Joyce whose portrait remains""a shy, quiet, infinitely curious, kindly, generous man". She shows us the artist whose complex existence was given to his work". As Beach says, 'He treated people invariably as his equals" (New York Times). An excerpt, Ulysses in Paris, was printed in 1956 for private distribution to friends of the author and publisher. Ink shelf markings on spine and front free endpaper.Book near-fine, short closed tear to rear panel of dust jacket, also near-fine. A desirable inscribed copy.

        Rome

      1959 - KLEIN, William. Rome: The City and Its People. Paris: Editions du Seuil, (1959). Tall quarto, original black cloth, photographic endpapers, original photographic dust jacket. $7000.First edition, French issue, the second volume in Klein's acclaimed series of four "city" books, a distinctive association copy inscribed on the page before the title page to longtime friend, fellow photographer Peter Turnley, "To Peter, ROME SWEET ROME, en toute amitié, William [line drawn] William Klein Paris 2005," with over 130 vivid, high-contrast heliogravures (many double-page), scarce in original dust jacket.According to Fellini, "this is the best Rome there is and Klein is the best photographer there is. He knows Rome like a book and this is it." "Cheesy, delirious, pure Pop art," William Klein's Rome continues the "raw, kinetic and utterly original" innovations of Life is Good (1956) (Roth, 140-41). His genius resides in an unerring ability to remind "us that much great, serious art is often about play, achieved simply by experimenting with the possibilities of the material. Forget trance and witness-the revels are the thing" (Parr & Badger I:243). Rome is the second volume in Klein's "city" series, "four books of photography which shook the very roots of this medium's young tradition". filled with raw, grainy, swirling yet abrupt images, which visually describe these cities in a manner never previously seen before" (Christian Sciene Monitor). First edition, French issue; London, New York and Rome editions published same year. Text in French. Open Book, 178. See Icons of Photography, 120. This rare association copy is from the collection of Peter Turnley, renowned photographer for Newsweek and contributing editor for Harper's Magazine who has covered "almost every important international news event of the last 15 years" (New York Times). Warmly inscribed by Klein in Paris, where both photographers are based.Images clean and fresh, front inner paper hinge starting but sound; some chipping with loss to edges of bright, unrestored dust jacket. An exceptional association copy in extremely good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Arkham House, Sauk City, WI 1959 - First Edition. REVIEW COPY, with tipped-in publisher's slip at the front endpaper. A few notations on the jacket indicate that this copy was a publisher's file copy: a sticker on the spine with the number "44887" in pencil, the same number in pencil on the jacket front panel, and stamped in blue ink on the front pastedown. Several notations and corrections in holograph pencil appear throughout, the word "omit," among others, found on several leaves at the heading. Many numerical notations in pencil appear at the table of contents, suggesting rearrangement for subsequent printings. Very Good plus in a Very Good dust jacket. Extremities lightly rubbed and bumped, slight fraying at a couple of corners, and a few leaves with tiny corner creases. Jacket moderately toned (mostly at the rear panel and at the verso), lightly rubbed, with a few tiny closed tears and brief chipping at the extremities, and a small bruise to the rear panel at the spine fold. Overall, an interesting and perhaps unique copy of the fifth Arkham House collection of Lovecraft's work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Goldfinger (a James Bond novel).

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1959.. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's black cloth with gilt-stamped 'skull'. Pictorial dust-wrapper by Richard Chopping. A lightly used copy which shows extremely well, with a little dustiness/spotting to top edge, no inscriptions or price-clipping, jacket with a few chips and tears now expertly restored. The seventh of author Ian Fleming's fourteen original Bond books which was was adapted as the third film (1964) in the EON Productions' 007 series and was the third to star Sean Connery as British Secret Service agent, Commander James Bond. To say it was successful is a little wide of the mark; it changed popular culture, being the first film to really capitalise on merchandising, and distracting a whole generation with glamourous espionage and international mystery as opposed to the bleak reality of the Cold War. Thunderbirds, The Avengers, U.N.C.L.E., Mission Impossible, Danger Man, Jason King, The Prisoner, The Persuaders et al, all begin here. Goldfinger was also the blueprint for the Bond movie franchise the next two decades; the plot, the sets, the villains and henchmen, the cars, the girls and the gadgets were all over the top, as was the budget- but nothing compared to the collosal box office returns!

        Lyrics on several occasions.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf,, 1959. A selection of stage & screen lyrics written for sundry situations; and now arranged in arbitrary categories. To which have been added many informative annotations & disquisitions on their why & wherefore, their whom-for, their how; and matters associative. Octavo. Original brown cloth backed boards, green cloth sides, titles and decoration gilt to spine and front, top edge dyed red. With the dust jacket. A really excellent copy with the dust jacket a little spine-tanned and a trifle rubbed at the corners. First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, "For Louis Aborn - with all best - From Ira Gershwin". Louis H. Aborn (1912-2005) was the President from 1956 of Tams-Whitmark Music Library, the largest collection of printed and manuscript music then in existence. During Aborn's presidency Tams-Whitmark acquired rights in many of the most popular American musical stage plays and made those musicals available for presentation by schools, community theatres, and professional theatres throughout the world. He was also instrumental in developing a number of works for the musical stage including The Wizard of Oz, Meet me in St Louis, and Calamity Jane. He had close relationships to many of the great Broadway composers and writers of the 20th century, and his own presentation copy of Gershwin's lyrical anthology makes for a great association.
