Housed in a purpose made quarter black morocco solander case, with titles in gilt to the spine.

Inscribed by the author in black ink on the front free endpaper "For Winifred & Garnett / with warmest / good wishes - / Sylvia / Court Green: 1962".A rare and moving presentation copy, inscribed by Sylvia Plath to her friend and close confidant Winifred Davies. On moving to the ramshackle thatched house Court Green, North Tawton in September 1961, a pregnant Sylvia quickly formed a close friendship with the midwife who delivered her son Nicholas. Living only three houses away, Winifred was a constant support to Sylvia and also her mother Aurelia (who lodged with Winifred when visiting Sylvia during July and August 1962, and relied on Winifred for updates on Sylvia's situation after returning to America). It was during this period -- from September 1961 to December 1962, that Sylvia wrote most of the Ariel poems and finished editing her novel The Bell Jar. When Sylvia and the children moved to London in December 1962, Winifred's son Garnett lived close by, visiting on several occasions, the last in early February for a lunch invitation, to be informed on arrival that Sylvia had died three days before.

        The Colossus and Other Poems

      New York Alfred A. Knopf 1962 First American Edition (so stated) of the poet's first collection, published one year before her death (and two years after the London edition). Tall, slim 8vo: [xii],83,[5]pp. Publisher's finely woven emerald-green cloth, spine lettered in black, Plath's monogram in blind to upper cover, top edge stained red, fore-edge untrimmed; blue typographic dust jacket lettered in white, priced $4.00, with correct "0562" publisher's code bottom of front flap. Fine and apparently unread. Fine In 1959, after a stay at the Yaddo writer's colony, Plath and her husband, the poet Ted Hughes, returned to London. The following year, their first child, Frieda, was born, and Plath published this first book of poetry. "Neglected in its own day and even in ours, [The Colossus] brims with important and powerful poems. . . . set[ting] forth most of Plath's characteristic concerns and styles. They express a confusion about women's roles in relation to male control, a sense of marginality and inner contradiction, a struggle with low self-esteem combined with egotism, a horror at historical catastrophe, a paranoid dread of the social and physical environment, and an overwhelming desire for poetic voice."

        Naked Lunch

      New York, NY : Grove Press, Inc., 1962. First American Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Good/Near Fine/Poor. "And only after the first shock does one realize that what Burroughs is writing about is not only the destruction of depraved men by their drug lust, but the destruction of all men by their consuming addictions...Burroughs is not only serious in his intent, but he is a writer of great power and artistic integrity engaged in a profoundly meaningful search for true values."(John Ciardi quoted on front flap) Naked Lunch is one of the foundational texts of the Beat Generation, & an unclassifiable, pathbreaking work onto itself; the most well-known, notorious novel by the great William S. Burroughs. This is the first American hardcover edition, stated first printing, published during March of 1962 by Barney Rosset's fabled Grove Press in a first printing run of 3500 copies (Joe Maynard & Barry Miles, William S. Burroughs: A Bibliography,1953-1973, University Press of Virginia, 1978; A2b, pgs. 10-11). WSB has hand-signed his name just below his printed name on the title page of this copy. From the collection of Ken Mikolowski, the esteemed poet-printer-publisher-professor who with his late wife Ann founded & conducted the legendary Alternative Press in Detroit. Beginning in the 1960s, the Press issued works by many Beat Generation/San Francisco Renaissance/Black Mountain & other luminaries, including WSB's fellow founding father of the Beats, Allen Ginsberg. Among the rarest versions of the iconic WSB classic, further enriched with this signature & provenance. Book in good to near-fine condition with mild, sparse rubbing & wear to front, back covers & spine; small spots of residue forming a partial rectangle near lower left corner of front cover likely the result of a removed sticker; short bump-indentation with splitting of board to same corner; smaller bumps to other corners of covers; fading & spotting of blue-grey dye at upper text block; tiny spots at lower & esp. side text blocks. Interior very fine except for staining at edges of front & rear endpaper leaves; very slight bump-curving to corners of a few other page leaves. Dust Jacket mostly intact but in poor condition with moderate-to-significant rubbing & wear to front, back covers & spine; creases, chips & short tears at all edges & corners; tape repairs at & near spine & corner edges; small but significant loss of front cover under tape at lower right corner of front cover.
