En Apenas esto (1929-1939) aparecen ciertos temas recurrentes en otros poemarios como la lírica tradicional, el paisaje, la dificultad de captar la esencia de la poesía (el propio Muelas había manifestado en varias ocasiones el gran reto que ello representaba), la vuelta a la infancia o su visión de la guerra civil, entre otros.

        The Tin Drum.

      Secker and Warburg., London - The uncorrected proof of the first British edition of the author's first novel. Octavo, original green wrappers as issued. Signed by the author on the title page. In excellent near fine condition showing only light wear. "When Günter Grass published "The Tin Drum" in 1959 it was as if German literature had been granted a new beginning after decades of linguistic and moral destruction. Within the pages of this, his first novel, Grass recreated the lost world from which his creativity sprang, Danzig, his home town, as he remembered it from the years of his infancy before the catastrophe of war. Here he comes to grips with the enormous task of reviewing contemporary history by recalling the disavowed and the forgotten: the victims, losers and lies that people wanted to forget because they had once believed in them. At the same time the novel breaks the bounds of realism by having as its protagonist and narrator an infernal intelligence in the body of a three-year-old, a monster who overpowers the fellow human beings he approaches with the help of a toy drum. The unforgettable Oskar Matzerath is an intellectual whose critical approach is childishness, a one-man carnival, dadaism in action in everyday German provincial life just when this small world becomes involved in the insanity of the great world surrounding it. It is not too audacious to assume that "The Tin Drum" will become one of the enduring literary works of the 20th century" (The Swedish Academy). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Current Anthropology

      University of Chicago Press, Chicago 1959 - 51 volumes complete with diagrams, illustrations, plates, maps, figures, indexes. Quarto (10 1/4" x 8 1/2") issued in wrappers. Some reprints, most first editions. Current Anthropology, whose first issue was launched in 1959, is one of the discipline's oldest and most distinguished journals, and has been sponsored since its founding by the Wenner-Gren Foundation. The journal was the first of its kind, championing an interdisciplinary approach alongside a commitment to international dialogue, while fostering a community of international scholars. It became known for its innovative format that combined major research papers with responses solicited from the field. The format, now known as the "CA treatment" was unique in its time and was copied by other journals such as Behavioral and Brain Sciences. While the journal has changed over the years, its original principles are still clearly present and can be traced back to the unique collaboration between the Foundation, led by Paul Fejos,and the anthropologist Sol Tax (University of Chicago). Fejos and Tax first worked together as organizers of a state of the art conference on Meso-American ethnology in 1949. Tax edited the volumes that resulted from this meeting. During the next decade, as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health in the United States directed their considerable resources towards the funding of large-scale research projects. Fejos explored alternative avenues to expand the reach and impact of the Foundation on the discipline. One shift was to direct funding towards activities that fostered international communication: meetings, with their subsequent publications, would encourage contacts among scholars and permit them to share their knowledge on a worldwide scale. With this in mind, Fejos organized an International Symposium on Anthropology in 1952 whose aim was to take a total inventory of the field and through this help the Foundation to set up new directions for funding. With this in mind, Fejos convened over 80 participants and the final proceedings (some 50 papers and transcripts of lengthy discussions) appeared in 1953 in two edited volumes published by University of Chicago Press: Anthropology Today: An Encyclopedic Inventory, A.L. Kroeber (ed.); and An Appraisal of Anthropology Today, Sol Tax, Loren Eiseley, Irving Rouse, and Carl Voegelin (eds.). With the success of this symposium and its volumes, Fejos decided to condense and update the findings into a volume published by the Foundation in 1955 as "The Yearbook of Anthropology." Inspired by this output, but frustrated by the logistics of publication, in 1957 Fejos invited Sol Tax to develop a plan that could enable worldwide exchange of ideas to continue, but which would be more immediate and flexible. While he had initially thought of publishing updates to the "Anthropology Today" proceedings in a series of books, he was adamant about the need to consult with anthropologists around the world and see what larger consensus might emerge. Intensive discussions began across the globe: Tax traveled to over 30 countries and organized a series of conferences at the Foundation in New York City. He continued to imagine the initiative primarily as a type of yearbook summarizing the current state of research until 1958. This changed after Burg Wartenstein was inaugurated by the Foundation. Its first scholarly event was a symposium dedicated to exploring new ideas for Current Anthropology. Tax, Fejos and twelve invited scholars gathered, and Tax's innovations were consolidated into a proposal that continues to represent the backbone of the journal to this day. Current Anthropology was to be a journal, not a yearbook. It was to address a worldwide community of anthropologists, and its goal would be to represent and unify the "anthropological sciences" by presenting articles across the discipline. Importantly, Tax envisioned a community of scholars rather then a representation of national [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Inscribed on the title page: " For Allen / with love / Bob" Issued as Jargon 33. inscribed to Allen Ginsberg. "INTERVIEWER [Lewis MacAdams and Linda Wagner-Martin] When did you meet Ginsberg? CREELEY In 1956 - after leaving Black Mountain, it must have been in early January or so, then stopping in Albuquerque with friends to pull myself together, then going on to San Francisco where Ed Dorn and his family were. I was trying to get out of my own habits. My marriage had finally ended altogether - and I was sick of what I knew, so to speak. So anyhow I decided to go west. I got to Ed's place about four in the afternoon, and he and Helene drove me around a little. I remember we got very drunk or I at least did - and Rexroth had invited me over for dinner. I can remember vomiting all over the sidewalk, just before I went in, something like an hour or so late. Then later that same night, after Ed had taken off for a job he had as a baggage clerk at Greyhound, suddenly Allen appeared. He was working at the same place only on an earlier shift. It's so characteristic of Allen to be there like that, that is, to come so directly to what interests him. And I was God knows flattered - we talked most of the night about Olson and the scene at Black Mountain. And he told me what was happening in San Francisco. Later, I remember walking around the city with him and Phil Whalen, with Allen inevitably carrying the big black binder notebook, reading us "Howl" every time we sat down or stopped for something to eat. It was really a beautiful time - everything was so open, just poised on its own energies". - The Paris Review, Fall 1968 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
