        A Significant Archive of Published Works Honoring the Uruguayan Poet, 1959-1975

      Eighteen books and six periodicals, comprising a significant archive of publications issued by the Esterist movement in Levens, France and elsewhere. Largely devotional in nature, the works praise Uruguayan poet Jose Parrilla as a god-like figure capable of bestowing spiritual enlightenment to his followers. Representative of the Esterists' later mystical period, the collection sheds light on Parrilla's transformation from an avant-garde artist influenced by Joaquin Torres-Garcia's Constructivism in the 1940s and 1950s into an isolated guru figure in the Alpes-Maritimes region of France in the 1960s and 1970s. Sizes and formats vary. Items in fine or near-fine condition. 1959-1975. Known to his disciples as "P." Jose Parrilla (1918-1994) rose to prominence as a controversial erotic and surrealist poet in his native Montevideo in the early 1940s, where, along with his wife, Alma Castillo and friend Raul Javiel Cabrera, a.k.a. Cabrerita (both painters), he drew inspiration from Joaquin Torres-Garcia's Asocacion de Arte Constructivo. Around 1944 he founded the Esterist movement and popular artistic collective comprised of writers, sculptors, and artists, named for his poem that repeats the name Ester over 700 times in 200 lines. In 1948, Parrilla, Castillo and Cabrerita moved to Valladolid, Spain, where they spread the ideas of Esterism and were instrumental in the creation of "Pascual Leteros," an avant-garde art movement including Publio Wifrido Otero, Gerardo Pintado, Primitivo Cano, Lorenzo Freschilla and Teodoro Calderon. The Letreros defied both the local art establishment and Franco's authoritarian state with their outlandishly staged performance-lectures and gallery exhibitions. After conflicts with authorities in Valladolid they moved to Barcelona in the early 1950s. Parrilla split from the group to hone the "philosophy" of Esterism, privileging an "anonymous, collective folk art" over individual production. After further controversy, Parrilla and his followers (including Cano and Fernande Dalezio, who edited and published much of the Esterist print material) moved to the South of France in 1958, where they established a commune devoted to his teachings.

        The Birthday Party: A Play in Three Acts

      London: Encore Publishing Co, 1959. Original wraps. Good +. SIGNED BY HAROLD PINTER on the title page. A solid copy to boot of the playwright's very first published work. Bright and Good+ in its fragile pictorial wrappers, with creasing and light chipping along the spine --and at the panel edges-- and very light staining and a bit of ink to the rear panel. Still though, quite presentable and, as the Nobelist's first play to appear on the London stage, very significant as such.

        The Little Disturbances of Man [Inscribed Association Copy]

      Doubleday, Garden City 1959 - A wonderful association copy of her first book, a collection of stories, by a writer who helped define the role of women and politics in contemporary literature: engaged without being didactic, Paley focused on both the ordinariness and the wonder of everyday life. Inscribed by Paley to Jean Stafford and her third husband, the journalist A.J. Liebling: "To Jean & Joe -- Grace Paley." Like Paley, Stafford's greatest medium was the short story: her Collected Stories won the Pulitzer Prize in 1970. Paley's Collected Stories, which included stories from this title, was a finalist for both the Pulitzer and the National Book Award, 25 years later. Offsetting to the endpages; near fine in a very good dust jacket with spotting to the rear panel and rubbing to the folds. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Uelsmann explains how he created the Floating tTree and Peapod image. Typed Letter Signed, with hand written corrections, on verso of a copy print of his photograph untitled (Floating tree and peapod, 1969 original) 4to, Gainseville, FL, June 11, 1976

      . Writing on the back of a "copy print" which he so identifies, of this well known image, he explains the technical process to his friend Harry. It seems clear from the text that Harry would understand the photographic processes referenced in the letter suggesting Harry was also a photographer. Uelsmann specifically discusses his use of Cronapaque which, apparently, "Harry" introduced him to. Uelsmann says "how important Cronapaque has become in my darkroom play." He discusses the "Floating Trees" image on the reverse saying "the pea pod in water was introduce [sic] with Cronapaque" and continues, "was photographed on a black background… then printed on Cronapaque so that the positive pod appeared near bottom and rest of the Cronapaque is black…." He gives a full explanation of how he uses the "Cronapaque mask." Cronapaque, a trademark of the DuPont de Nemours company (patent filed 1959) is a translucent graphic arts film [according to a springer.com link to an article on neuroradiology]. Uelsmann ends with "Diane and I both hope this letter finds you in good health," and signs, "Friendly thoughts, Jerry." Diane [Diane Farris, the photographer] was Uelsmann's second wife whom he married in 1975.

        Photographs / Introduction by Harold Rosenberg

      New York City: Horizon Press, 1959 - Folio (330 × 254 mm), pp.[112]. 50 black-and-white photographs. Design by Ivan Chermaye. Tan endpapers. Black cloth-covered boards, spine lettered in silver and red, upper side blocked in silver; light handling marks and minor toning to page edges, front top corner lightly bumped. Black-and-white photo-illustrated dust-jacket, text in red and black, author’s photograph by Harry Callahan on rear flap; front panel lightly toned and rubbed, blocking showing through as usual, short tears to head and foot of spine and flap-folds strengthened with tape to verso, light wear to edges, creasing and moderate area of abrasion to rear panel, several small chips. Siskind’s presentation inscription in black ink on front free endpaper. An excellent copy in a very good dust-jacket. First edition of Siskind’s first book, a presentation copy inscribed: ‘Cora in love / Aaron / 3/13/61’. Cora Ginsburg was a scholar and dealer who specialised in museum quality antique costume and textiles. Her mother, Bertha Kling, had met Aaron Siskind during a camping trip in upstate New York in the 1920s, and she and her family remained friends with Siskind for decades. From 1950 Cora worked with her husband Benjamin Ginsburg at his family’s antiques firm in Manhattan. At Ginsburg Levy, and later Benjamin Ginsburg Antiquary, she was the buyer of textiles, needlework, ceramics, silver and brass. When her husband retired in 1982 she opened her own gallery on the Upper East Side called Cora Ginsburg LLC. She did much to develop the field of collecting costumes, and was a consultant to Colonial Williamsburg, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and other major institutions. After an initial career teaching English in public schools Aaron Siskind joined the New York Workers’ Film and Photo League (1932-35) and later the Photo League (1936-41) and was actively involved. However, he left in the early-forties saying that ‘the so-called documentary picture left me wanting something. For some reason or other there was in me the desire to see the world clean and fresh and alive, as primitive things are clean and fresh and alive.’ He began experimenting with the medium’s capacity for abstraction, making photographs of rocks, rust, graffiti and peeling plaster, echoing and influenced by his association with Franz Kline and the the emerging Abstract Expressionist painters.

        Milano, Italia

      Lerici,, Forma - Vita 3, 1959. Rilegato, sovracoperta (hard cover, dust jacket) 135 fotografie in bianco e nero di Mario Carrieri. 4to. pp. 164. Ottimo (Fine). Sovracoperta restaurata professionalmente per una piccola mancanza al pannello frontale (Dust jacket professionally restored for a little lack to the front panel. Otherwise very good). Prima edizione (First edition). Il volume è costituito da dieci scene che raccontano Milano senza bisogno di alcun testo, fatta eccezione per una breve biografia dell'autore. Carrieri, fotogiornalista e direttore della fotografia, rimase lontano da qualsiasi altro progetto per due anni, dal 1957 al 1959, per fotografare esclusivamente la nebbia, la periferia, la vita notturna, gli abitanti di Milano. La metropoli fu immortalata da ben 3500 scatti eseguiti entro la cinta daziaria di Milano fra il gennaio e l'agosto del 1958, su pellicola rapidissima 35 millimetri. Da questa imponente mole di immagini Carrieri selezionò le 135 destinate al volume. Nessuna immagine fu ripresa in luoghi privati: un progetto, si potrebbe dire, tutto "girato in esterno". Uno stradario è collocato all'inizio di ognuna delle dieci scene ed aiuta ad orientarsi. Il fotografo non nasconde nessuno degli aspetti meno attraenti e duri della città, non soltanto quando riprende la grigia vita di periferia, ma anche quando ritrae il centro dei negozi e del passeggio, che riesce a far sembrare più scuro e minaccioso del vero, al pari delle zone periurbane. Anche il tempo è "strumentalizzato": la Milano di Carrieri è sotto scacco di una pioggerella incessante e di un cielo plumbeo carico di neve. La sua attenzione per gli aspetti più sordidi della vita di città nell'intento di smontare il mito della metropoli ne ha fatto uno dei libri più riusciti del neorealismo fotografico, che proprio a fine anni Cinquanta concludeva la sua parabola.

        An Important Archive of 90 Letters with Related Material Written to Saul Bellow in 1959, Mostly Concerning "The Noble Savage" and "Henderson the Rain King"

      Various, 1959. A remarkable collection of correspondence received by Saul Bellow during the year he published "Henderson the Rain King" and co-founded the short-lived yet influential literary magazine "The Naked Savage". The lone Bellow SIGNED item a single typed sheet, marked page 5 and with his hand corrections, the final page of his essay "The Search for Symbols, a Writer Warns, Misses All the Fun and Fact of the Story", which was published Feb.15, 1959 in the NY Times. In all, 101 separate items, 90 of them SIGNED, both typed and handwritten, with 48 original postmarked envelopes. All but 3 of the items dated or attributable to the period July-November, 1959. Most of the material has to do with "The Naked Savage", and through these letters you can watch the magazine evolve. Amazing literary and personal content, including a warm full page handwritten letter from Ralph Ellison ( ..."Fanny is fine, Rufus goes around singing "I Love You Porgy", while I'm still coughing and sneezing my brain away.") typed letters from Lillian Hellman(1), Wright Morris(1), Alfred Leslie(1), Mark Harris(2), Dan Wakefield(2), Josephine Herbst(3), Harvey Swados(3), Herbert Gold(5), and handwritten letters from Harold Rosenberg(2), Keith Botsford(5), Richard Elman(1), Norman di Giovanni(1), Roberta Markels ( Bellow's lover)(3), and Edward Shils(1). And from the publishing side, letters from Aaron Asher, Pascal Covici, George Weidenfeld, Jack Ludwig, and Henry Volkening, among many others. Some of the related materials include royalty statements from Vanguard Press and Weidenfeld & Nicolson; a copy of the editor's contract for "The Noble Savage", and even a royalty deposit slip to Bellow's bank account ! These letters reveal much about the writers and their current writing, friendships, jealousies, travels, and career and life challenges. Overtly and between-the-lines, they also reveal much about Saul Bellow as a friend, mentor, lover, editor, and fellow writer. This stunning collection is from the estate of W. Carl Jackson, who at his death was Dean of Libraries at Indiana University.. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR.
