        THE FAULKNER READER: Selections from the Works of William Faulkner

      New York:: Modern Library, (1959).. New York:: Modern Library. (1959). A Modern Library Giant, first edition thus. Originally published by Random House in 1954. INSCRIBED on the front endpaper "To The Maracay Book Club / with gratitude and best wishes / William Faulkner / [illegible, though possibly "Caracas"] / 20 April 1961" and signed on the title page "William Faulkner / Maracay / 10 April 1961." As is well known, Faulkner visited Venezuela on a State Department trip in April 1961; perhaps not known before was that during his travels he made a side trip to Maracay, about 50 miles outside of the capital, Caracas, to visit a book club founded in his honor by a former fellow Mississippian, Vivian Ray. According to Ray&#39;s son, "Maracay is located about 50 miles from Caracas and had a strong presence of US citizens due to the factories being installed there, but the main offices were in Caracas. Mr. Faulkner stayed during his visit with William and Victoria Fielden in Caracas, but they also had a residence in La Victoria (adjacent to Maracay) because Philip Morris had their manufacturing plant there. Some biographers say that Mr. Fielden worked with a petroleum company, but nope [Philip Morris is a tobacco company]. All US citizens including my mother stuck together, and they all knew who was who, so when they found out that Mr. Faulkner was coming, they arranged this &#39;out of protocol&#39; event. I remember my mother telling me of how much Mr. Faulkner enjoyed this particular visit." Old tape shadows to pastedowns and rear endpaper where card was removed; offsetting from book club lending-library stamps on dust jacket flaps to free endpapers, affecting Faulkner&#146;s inscription on front endpaper (which is nonetheless as legible as one could hope from Faulkner); otherwise would be about very good in edge worn but still good dust jacket with label on spine, presumably from the lending library. OFFERED TOGETHER WITH A SMALL ARCHIVE of materials from Faulkner&#39;s 1955 State Department trips to Japan, Paris, Italy, and a 1954 trip to Lima, Peru, made while in route to Paulo, Brazil, for an International Writers Conference: 9-page embassy despatch from Japan ["This is the first time that a single individual of such stature and appeal has been sent, through the Exchange Program, to Tokyo"]; 3-page typescript of article by Madeleine Chapsal for The Reporter about his Paris visit ["His most grueling ordeal was the Gallimard cocktail party"]; 5-page embassy despatch from Italy ["Apropos of USIS Tokyo&#146;s observations ... on Mr. Faulkner&#39;s drinking habits...."]; typescript of one-page letter from Faulkner to Muna Lee, who had requested Faulkner attend the Writer&#146;s conference in Peru ["Can there be more than one Muna Lee? More than the one whose verse I have known since a long time?"]; and 13 pages of translations of articles in the local Lima papers about Faulkner&#39;s visit there. Altogether an interesting glimpse into the State Department travels of the Nobel Prize-winning author.

Slight gutter break at end of text. DJ. lightly worn with edges & spine rubbed. Slipcase rubbed and worn,. but still holding. A VG+ example in a similar jacket, all housed in. VG original publisher&#39;s slipcase.. "Qi Baishi was an influential Chinese painter. Born to a peasant family from Xiangtan, Hunan, Qi became a carpenter at 14, and learned to paint by himself. After he turned 40, he traveled, visiting various scenic spots in China. After 1917 he settled in Beijing. He is perhaps the most noted for the whimsical, often playful style of his watercolor works. Some of Qi&#39;s major influences include the early Qing Dynasty painter Bada Shanren The subjects of his paintings include almost everything, commonly animals, scenery, figures, toys, vegetables, and so on. He theorized that "paintings must be something between likeness and unlikeness, much like today&#39;s vulgarians, but not like to cheat popular people". In his later years, many of his works depict mice, shrimp or birds. He was also good at seal carving and called himself "the rich man of three hundred stone seals". In 1953 he was elected president of the Association of Chinese Artists. He died in Beijing in 1957. What is unique about Baishi is that his works show no western influences, unlike most other artists at this time. Other artists praised Baishi for his Òfreshness and spontaneity that he brought to the familiar genres of birds and flowers, insects and grasses, hermit-scholars and landscapesÓ (Xiangtan, p.Ê2). Even though Baishi wasnÕt the first artist to focus on small things in nature, he was recognized for his very careful and beautiful way of painting such common images. Forgery of Qi Baishi&#39;s work, and misattribution of work by others to him, has become common in the contemporary art market. He is estimated to have produced between 8,000 and 15,000 distinct works throughout his life, of which 3,000 are in museums; however, since 1993, auction houses have attempted to sell over 18,000 distinct works attributed to him. One of his paintings, Eagle Standing on Pine Tree, was sold for 425.5 million yuan ($65.5 million) in 2011, becoming one of the most expensive paintings ever sold at auction." [Wiki]. This posthumously published volume on Baishi&#39;s work is rare in the Western trade. . Chiefly half-tone reproductions of Qi Baishi&#39;s illustrations and paintings. Some in color, some black & white. Large b/w tipped-in frontis of Baishi.

Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. *OCLC* locates a single copy, in Texas.

        Bob Dylan&#39;s Harmonica from High School, circa 1959

      Hohner Echo Harmonica, circa 1959. Very Good condition. In a custom clamshell case. A harmonica that was owned jointly by Dylan and his friend Dale Boutang, played by both during their high school days in Hibbing, Minnesota. Manufactured by M. Hohner, this particular harmonica was chosen because the name of the model was the same as Dylan&#39;s girlfriend in high school, Echo Helstrom. The harmonica has been in the possession of Boutang since their school days together, and Boutang has written a letter attesting to the provenance. "I was a classmate and close, personal friend of Bob Zimmerman, who later changed his name to Bob Dylan. Bob and I shared many of our harmonicas and guitars. This one such harmonica, which I ended up keeping from our high school days. I have had [it] in my possession ever since." Perhaps the greatest testament to ownership of this item is Dale Boutang&#39;s crudely scrawled name, along the black edge of the harmonica, between the metal plates. Also included are all insurance documents relating to this item while it was on a worldwide tour with the Experience Music Project, a museum of music history founded by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft.
