        The Snowy Day.

      New York: Viking Press, 1962. First edition, fifth printing. Quarto, original pictorial boards as issued. Signed by Ezra Jack Keats on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. A beautiful example of this classic in children's literature, rare signed. After serving in World War II, Ezra Jack Keats returned to New York and started a career in illustration, working first in the comic industry, and then working for such publications as Reader's Digest, The New York Times Book Review, and Collier's. In the 1950s Keats started illustrating dust jackets, and when one book cover caught the eye of an editor of youth literature, Keats was soon commissioned to illustrate children's books. Keats started solely as an illustrator for the work of other authors. But he soon observed that few children's books showcased an African-American or other minority child as the main character. Published in 1962, The Snowy Day was the first book Keats both authored and illustrated, and was a milestone for featuring the first African-American protagonist in a full-color picture book. "None of the manuscripts I'd been illustrating featured any black kids--except for token blacks in the background. My book would have him there simply because he should have been there all along." It went on to win the 1963 Caldecott Medal, has remained a deeply loved and profoundly influential book. Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association named the book one of its Teachers Top 100 Books for Children. In 2012 it was ranked number five among the Top 100 Picture Books in a survey published by School Library Journal.

        Where Witchcraft Lives.

      London: The Aquarian Press,, 1962. Octavo. Original pale grey boards, title gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in a very slightly rubbed, but unclipped, jacket. First edition, first impression of the first book by "the mother of modern pagan witchcraft" (ODNB), most likely early state binding with the blocking in gilt rather than black. Doreen Valiente (1922–1999) became interested in the occult as a child, and was a practising clairvoyant by the time she was a teenager. In 1953, after reading an article on modern witchcraft, she joined Gerald Gardener's coven, and eventually became high priestess but left after the two had a falling-out in 1957, and ran her own coven until the early 1960s. In addition to serving as a leader of British neo-paganism, Valiente wrote "some of the major works of Wicca, including the enduring version of the most important, The Charge of the Goddess" (ODNB), and three other important books, "which established her as a public figure. In the first, An ABC of Witchcraft Past and Present (1973), she provided her own history of witchcraft; the second, Natural Magic (1975), was a handbook of practical magic; and the third, Witchcraft for Tomorrow (1978), was a book of ritual for witches who wished to set up their own covens" (ODNB). The present work is a survey of historical and contemporary witchcraft practices in Sussex, and is uncommon in the dust jacket.

        26 Etchings by Shelly Fink

      Alford, MA, 1962. Fink, Sheldon. Small quarto. 28ff. One of forty copies. Etched title page and twenty-six fine etchings by Fink, ranging thematically from portraits to botany, to insects. Many of Fink's etchings have a decidedly Baskinesque aesthetic, but Fink's circle centered primarily in New York, where he was friendly with Jack Levine and Raphael Soyer. For this collection, Fink commissioned Royall Moore to create paper with a high linen count, and this was the subject of a Popular Mechanics article in 1965. Moore, who was described in the article as an "inventive Yankee," was a carpenter by trade, and made all the equipment himself. The binding for this edition was executed by Arno Werner, who bound it in full deerskin with a hubbed spine and decorations printed in black on the upper cover and spine. Werner also presumably made the marbled endpapers, which also decorate the deerskin-backed folding case. Some minor wear to extremtites of the box, otherwise fine and bright.

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).

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."
