        Set of 20 Issues of Divadlo

      Prague: Divadlo, (1962-1968). Uniformly very good in photo-illustrated wrappers.. First Edition. Oblong octavos. Set of 20 issues of the Czech dance and theater journal Divadlo. Profusely illustrated with numerous black-and-white photographs of actors on and off the stage, including the first appearance of Josef Koudelka's photographs in print. Issued by the avant-garde company Divadlo Za Branou, or Theater Beyond the Gate, led by Otomar Krejca, the journal highlighted late twentieth century developments in European performance. Koudelka began his professional photographic career with the company, demonstrating an early proclivity toward modernist aesthetics and abstract forms that he would continue in his renowned later work. Each issue includes articles, interviews, and script excerpts. Text in Czech. Not a complete run of all of his early appearances, but close.

        A letter from Winston Churchill's close friend and indispensable wartime Chief of Staff, General Lord Hastings Lionel "Pug" Ismay seeking a copy of Churchill's first book less than a month after Churchill's death and in the final year of Ismay's own life Found in a first printing copy Churchill's Frontiers and Wars

      London: Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1962. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Winston Churchill's close friend and indispensable wartime Chief of Staff, "Pug" Ismay, wrote this letter seeking a copy of Churchill's first book less than a month after Churchill's death and in the final year of Ismay's own life. The letter is on Ismay?s letterhead bearing his printed address and telephone number. The typed date is ?17th. February 1965.? The typed text reads ?Could you be an angel and lend me your copy of ?The Story of the Malakand Field Force? as I badly need a quotation for an article that I am writing. If you will send it by registered post I will return it by the same means within three days. Love to you both,? The letter bears Ismay?s autograph salutation, ?My dear Mike?, valediction, ?Y[ours] ? Ever? and is signed with his famous nickname, ?Pug?. The recipient, typed at the foot of the letter, was ?M. Holden-White. Esq.? of ?10, Lowndes Street, Lowndes Square. S.W.1.? Of General Lord Hastings Lionel ?Pug? Ismay, 1st Baron Ismay (1887-1965), Churchill said: ?We became hand in glove and much more?? (Churchill, The Gathering Storm) When Churchill became Prime Minister in May 1940, he also assumed appointment as Minister of Defence. Ismay served Churchill as Chief of Staff in that capacity, and in other roles, including Deputy Secretary to the War Cabinet, for Churchill?s entire wartime premiership. ?Shrewd, resilient, accessible, emollient in diplomacy but of an unbreachable integrity?, Ismay ??commanded the prime minister's absolute trust. He was the essential link with the chiefs of staff... Difficult allies respected him as much as did difficult colleagues.? (ODNB) Ismay was promoted Lieutenant-General in 1942 and General in 1944, and made Baron in 1947. When Churchill?s second premiership began in October 1951, Ismay was first appointed Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and, swiftly thereafter, Secretary-General of NATO, a post he held until his retirement in 1957. In late 1960, Ismay published his own Memoirs, which include a prefatory Tribute from Churchill ?to the signal services which Lord Ismay has rendered to our country, and to the free world, in peace and war.? It is poignant that Ismay sought Churchill?s first published book so soon after the death of his friend and so near to his own. Like Churchill, Ismay was educated at Sandhurst and saw early service as a cavalry officer in India. Although, unlike Churchill, Ismay did not leave soldiering for politics, even his early career was deeply shaped by his future Prime Minister and patron. In his Memoirs, Ismay wrote that ?As a young officer in India in 1910, Mr. Winston Churchill, whom I had never met, and, as it then seemed, was unlikely ever to meet, exercised a decisive influence on my future.? Despite shock that ?anyone who had started so brilliantly should have thrown it all up and gone into Parliament? Ismay was critically inspired by Churchill?s intrepid early accomplishments. Ismay felt ?on the whole, I could not do better than try to emulate the example of his early years.? Of course, the earliest of these early years are chronicled in Churchill?s first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force, which recounts Churchill's experiences while attached to Sir Bindon Blood's punitive expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. The edition of the text most readily available in February 1965 was Frontiers and Wars. Published in 1962, this is a single volume abridgement of Churchill's first four war books, including The Story of the Malakand Field Force. This is not a compellingly well-preserved first printing copy of Frontiers and Wars, showing sunning, soiling, and wear. But it is the copy in which Lord Ismay?s letter was found and it seems quite plausible that this was the very copy lent in response to his request. Hence we offer them together and encourage the future owner to keep them thus. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A274.1.a, Woods/ICS A142/1(a.1), Langworth p.340.

        THE COLOSSUS AND OTHER POEMS

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1962. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 84 p. First American Edition. With this startling, exhilarating book of poems, Sylvia Plath (1932-63) burst into literature with spectacular force. In such classics as "The Beekeeper's Daughter," "The Disquieting Muses," "I Want, I Want," and "Full Fathom Five," she writes about sows and skeletons, fathers and suicides, about the noisy imperatives of life and the chilly hunger for death. This copy belonged to Anne Wilder, the confidant and lover of poet Anne Sexton, with Wilder's signature to the front flyleaf. The two engaged in a passionate affair and a prolific correspondence (Wilder is identified as "Anne Clarke" in Anne Sexton: A Self-Portrait in Letters), which reveals much about Sexton's work and her psychological struggles during the mid- to late 1960s. Like Plath, with whom she shared a brief but intense friendship while attending Robert Lowell's graduate writing seminar at Boston University, Sexton was among the finest confessional poets of her generation. The two remained inextricably linked by their work, which explores the darker, feminine aspects of the American experience, and by the nature of their untimely deaths. Octavo. Original green cloth binding. A very fine copy in a fine dust jacket.

Seven leaves in total, each measuring 35.5 x 25.4cm. [One of eight copies for presentation of a total edition of 20]. Housed in a good quality modern folding case, with a leather lettering piece on the front cover.London, John Murray - ?A good book from Mr. Murray is the blessed life blood of a Master Spirit? Inscribed by the author at the foot of the last page of text to Evelyn Waugh ?Evelyn with love from John B? The text is a loving and well-achieved pastiche ofthe Celtic Twilight and the entire Arts and Crafts movement. Deirdre O'Betjeman describes her visit to Fiona MacLeod (thealter egoof William Sharp) in West Hampstead, alighting from the Metropolitan line and passing the wonderful Voysey house at the corner of Kidderpore Avenue (?a goodly and stout stone dwelling for his old father the theist on Platt's Lane, but that is another tale & must await the Saxon stave of these my chronicles?). Deirdre is bent upon a sort of Celtic cultural embassy ?The mission of missions to Fiona MacLeod here on his hill top Hampstead Cairn?: ?Can words of mine however precious, write with quill however bravely sharpened on paper however finely laid, bring back the magic of that mystic meeting of Celt & Celt in the twilight of a Hampstead drawing room . Lang, lang did we talk i' the gloaming as the smoke steepled out the chimney o' the neighbouring house of Edmund Gosse & the sun sunk low o'er the hoose of Arthur Waugh, & shades of even drave his two young sons Alexander & Evelyn indoors frae their games in the garden. Fornent us in Frognal the Spenders were putting their bairns tae bed.? A few soft marginal creases, otherwise a fine copy of one of the most entertaining of 20th century literary rarities, with an immaculate provenance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The two engaged in a passionate affair and a prolific correspondence (Wilder is identified as "Anne Clarke" in Anne Sexton: A Self-Portrait in Letters), which reveals much about Sexton's work and her psychological struggles during the mid- to late 1960s. Like Plath, with whom she shared a brief but intense friendship while attending Robert Lowell's graduate writing seminar at Boston University, Sexton was among the finest confessional poets of her generation. The two remained inextricably linked by their work, which explores the darker, feminine aspects of the American experience, and by the nature of their untimely deaths. Octavo. Original green cloth binding. A very fine copy in a fine dust jacket.

        Grand Canyon River Guide Scroll Map

      Midway, UT: Leslie Allen Jones. Very Good. 1962. No Binding. From Herm Hoop's History of River Guides on the Colorado River System: "Les Jones, of Heber City, Utah, was an engineer and avid river runner. Jones began running rivers at the age of eleven. He built a kayak, running most rivers solo, and taking movies from a camera mounted on a football helmet. By the early 1950's Les began taping USGS maps together and filling in the missing contours. Les began using aerial photos, USGS maps and his own drawings and notes to trace and draw detailed maps on a scroll paper strips 7-10 inches wide. The maps were not waterproof and faded in sunlight, so they had to be protected from water and sunlight. Later his maps were copied onto waterproof mylar. Jones copied a river profile on the map above the river segments, labeling rapids and features on both. The maps contained rapid ratings, drawings of major rapids, Powell and other historic river camps, historic inscriptions and other detailed information. Les' maps were some of the first maps to contain conservation messages." One of Jones's river scroll maps for the Grand Canyon. Dark blue mimeographed text and map on waterproof mylar. 7" wide paper scroll map is of unknown length when unrolled. In original plastic packaging with attached paper instructions. Some edge wear, few small tears visible. Fascinating piece of river-running history! Jones also produced maps for the Salmon, Wind River, Hell's Canyon, Lodore, Big Bend and other rivers. ; Map; 1 pp .
