(Gorey, Edward) Lamport, Felicia
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1961. Second printing. Drawings by Edward Gorey. 1 vols. 8vo. With ANS from Felicia Lamport to Ashley Montagu laid in. Felicia Lamport (1916-1999) was a well-known political satirist and writer of light verse. Her work was featured widely in newspapers and magazines such as the Atlantic, Harper's, and The New Yorker. Among Lamport's other books are Mink on Weekdays (1950), Cultural Slag (1966), and Political Plumlines (1984). Her legendary writing classes at Harvard and at the Harvard Extension School made Lamport a significant figure in Cambridge. Her papers (at Harvard) include plays, articles, verse, correspondence, teaching materials, and other writings. Ms. Lamport was equally at home parodying T. S. Eliot in "The Love Song of R. Milhous Nixon, 1973" ("Let us go then, in my plane/For a weekend of repose in Key Biscayne") as she was with John Keats in her "Ode to a Grecian Urn." Toledano B14c. Pale yellow cloth.

[colophon: Cleveland: World Publishers Folio. [737] ff.. 1961] A fine full-size facsimile on specially made "antique" paper from the Ventura Mill at Cernobbio, Italy, faithfully reproducing the black-letter text of the first edition, first issue (the "He" issue) of the King James Bible. => The edition was limited to 1500 copies, of which this is number 878. It was printed by offset lithography and bound in full leather by Amilcare Pizzi of Milan in a handsome replica of the type of binding found on some copies of this edition. Binding as above with leather abraded at edges, spine-tips, and bands; joints open and fragile; lacks the slipcase. Interior fresh, clean, and lovely. A compromised copy, but a handsome and interesting production not necessarily easy to find on the market; a large volume priced to permit its strengthening by a conservator should that be wished for.
