        The New American poetry 1945-1960

      Grove Press, New York 1960 - Two volumes, octavo. xxiii, 454 pages (hardcover); xxiii, 454 pages (softcover) One of the most important anthologies of American poetry ever published. * Ad 1: First edition (Softcover issue), THIS COPY SIGNED BY NINE CONTRIBUTORS: ALLEN GINSBERG, JOHN ASHBERY, LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI, ROBERT CREELEY, KENNETH KOCH, MICHAEL McCLURE, JONATHAN WILLIAMS, GARY SNYDER, AND PHILIP WHALEN. * Ad 1: First edition (Hardcover issue), a rare copy SIGNED BY DONALD ALLEN, the compiler and editor, with an unpublished letter by Allen (photocopy) concerning the publication history of this Anthology and the royalties that each poet received. * "There was no more significant poetry anthology in the second half of the twentieth-century than THE NEW AMERICAN POETRY 1945-1960, edited by Donald M. Allen and published by the Grove Press in 1960. Poised at almost mid-century, it provides a summing up of a very particular situation in poetry as it looks back to the achievements of the 1950s and ahead to the possibilities of the 60s. The goal, according to Allen, was to present one common characteristic: a total rejection of all those qualities typical of academic verse. Allen's anthology was prophetic in another way. It assigned poets to large overall groupings that have persisted for nearly forty years and have entered the critical nomenclature: Black Mountain, San Francisco Renaissance, Beat Generation, and New York Poets - as well as identifying a group of younger poets 'who have been associated with and in some cases influenced by the leading writers of the preceding groups' (p. xiii). When the Allen anthology came out, several of the featured poets had barely been published" (source: 'A Secret Location on the Lower East Side: Adventures in Writing, 1960-1980,' NYPL and Granary Books). * Allen's compilation, with its appended statements on poetry by various literary luminaries, served to define the canon for two generations of readers, scholars, and critics. Olson, Duncan, Ginsberg, Kerouac, Everson / Antoninus, Blackburn, O'Hara. the list goes on and on. Allen introduced countless thousands to new voices, and deepened appreciation for yet others. * The fascinating letter by Allen is dated 10 April 1998 and reads: "The contract I'd signed with Grove Press gave me an advance of only $1,000.00 which did not provide much of a payment to the 44 poets. Robert Duncan had more faith in the success of the anthology and wanted much more. After talking with Denise Levertov about how New Directions paid contributors to their Annuals by pro-rating the royalties earned, I decided to pro-rate two-thirds of the royalties earned annually by THE NEW AMERICAN POETRY to the poets at a rate of so much per page of poetry. And continued pro-rating the royalties until the book went out of print in 1980 and was superseded by THE POSTMODERNS, co-edited with George Butterick." Interestingly, one page of the Ginsberg section (p. 181) is marked up in red pencil, as if it was to be omitted in a reading or later edition. * AN IMPORTANT SET OF BOTH ISSUES OF THE FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY NINE POETS AND THE COMPILER / EDITOR. Hardcover: dust wrapper slightly torn at head of crown but overall IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, suitable for exhibition. Softcover: spine creased, with minor cracking but AN ATTRACTIVE COPY, suitable for exhibition Original Cloth, original dust-wrappers [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Call It Sleep. A Novel

      Paterson, NJ: Pageant Books, Inc.,, 1960. With a History by Harold U. Ribalow. A Critical Introduction by Maxwell Geismar and a Personal Appreciation by Meyer Levin. Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to spine gilt on black ground. With the dust jacket. Lightly rubbed and dulled at extremities, contents faintly toned. An excellent copy in the rubbed jacket with a few nicks and a closed tear to the fold of the front flap. Inscribed by Roth to the author Elizabeth Jane Howard on the front free endpaper, "To Jane Howard, The pleasure of this brief acquaintance was intense and appreciated, Henry Roth". With Roth&#39;s underlining to several lines on page xvii of the "History" of the book, part of the critical matter added to this edition. Originally published in 1934, Roth&#39;s novel underwent a critical reappraisal when it was rediscovered in the 1960s. The novel was hailed as an overlooked Depression-era masterpiece and classic novel of immigration, and is now widely regarded as a masterpiece of Jewish American literature.

Boards very lightly rubbed, lower corner bumped, head of spine faded, spine a bit rolled, contents slightly toned. A very good copy in the rubbed, toned, and nicked jacket with a few short closed tears and chips to the upper panel and head of the spine panel affecting both sets of titles. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the half-title "For Louis Dollarhide in appreciation &#150; Flannery O&#39;Connor, Millidgeville, April 8, 1960". Inserted is O&#39;Connor&#39;s calling card on which she has written "I took the liberty of correcting the typographical error on page 242, FOC". On page 242 she has crossed out "to" in line 19 and replaced it with "the". Louis Dollarhide was an English professor at the University of Mississippi who supported O&#39;Connor&#39;s work and corresponded with her between 1957 and 1964. There are two binding variants of this edition, and the other presentation copy we have seen was also in red boards as opposed to the normal brown boards, so these may have been advance copies or produced specifically for the author.

G., After this, please don't send me any more books for at least a year; I'm not working for you. Ritual in the Dark has, despite all the advice I gave to Colin, at least 1000 ineptitudes; and, despite all these ineptitudes, is still supremely readable. It renews my youth , and makes me remember the London I once knew - the La Vie Boheme London, the (illegible word) alive London of both 1945 and 1951. It's a very bad novel; but I could read it. And if you don't think this high praise then you know nothing at all abou t me - which indeed you don't, - sentimental old bourgeois that you are - or about any kind of mature writing! John Braine.' An important presentation inscription, John Braine being one of the people Colin Wilson acknowledges along with Victor Gollancz himself on the dedication leaf.
