        ALBUM DE LA REVOLUCION CUBANA 1952 1959

      Habana [Havana], Cuba: Triumphal Return of Fidel Castro into Havana in 1959, Undated. First edition. Wrappers. Fine. A Fine copy of this scarce Cuban Propaganda Album issued to "educate" Cuban children with respect to Castro's "Revolution" in Cuba (slight coloration to upper margin of the front wrapper's verso and the rear wrapper's recto) complete with 268 numbered cards, and 3 unnumbered revolutionary movement cards (for a total of 371 cards), each inserted in the proper place. Each numbered card was to be affixed to the proper rectangular space having a number matching the card beneath which space there is a preprinted numbered caption describing the applicable card's illustration. The illustrations show scenes from the Revolucion and its heroes such as Fidel Castro, Raul Castro, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, and others from the Revolucion's 1952 commencement to the Triumphal Return of Fidel Castro to Habana in 1959. The three spaces for the revolutionary movement cards are respectively captioned "MOVIMIENTO 26 DE JULIO", DIRECTORIO REVOLUCIONARIO, and SEGUNDO FRENDE NACIONAL ESCAMBRAY". As part of an advertising campaign presumably beginning in or about 1960, the cards were provided by Cia. Industrial Empacadora de Dulces, S.A. as premiums for the purchase of their canned fruit products for the children to collect in the book (also provided by the company). On this copy, the rear wrapper's verso contains a full page advertisement for Felices. An unusually Fine copy of this interesting piece of Cuban Revolutionary Propaganda for children. QUITE SCARCE, especially when in a condition as nice as is this copy.

        The Circus of the Sun

      (New York: Journeyman Books. 1959). First. First edition. Cloth and photographically illustrated papercovered boards. Drawings and design by Emil Antonucci. Cover photograph by Charles Harbutt. Fine in a good, original unprinted glassine dustwrapper. One of 500 numbered copies Signed by both Lax and Antonucci. Additionally, briefly Inscribed by Lax: "Douglas / Bob." Lax's first and most famous book, a meditation on the Creation, was described in the New York Times as "perhaps the greatest English language poem of this century." A close friend of Thomas Merton's, their correspondence was published. Occasionally described as a hermit, Lax did little to advance his literary career. His sparing use of words qualifies him as one of the founders of literary minimalism. .
