        A collection of his letters, manuscripts, and printed works

      As issued, but generally poor to good. This collection was gathered by Terry Risk who visited Count Potocki in the early 1970s at his home, the Villa Vigoni, near Draguignan in the south of France. It includes a number of his printed works, all the letters back and forth, letters (some in photocopy) to other people, magazine articles by or about him, four typed unpublished manuscripts, a block of linotype for one of his cards, a collection of photographs, copies of a number of legal documents, and one broadside which he always regarded as one of the most significant gestures of his life. A partial list of the items includes: The Blood Royal of England (1966), Dog's Eggs (1971), The Fifth Columnist (1960), Lordly Lovesongs (1931), Meillerie (1972), Prison Poems (1933), Snobbery With Violence (1932), Whited Sepulchres (1936), and Wild Oats (1927). Many of these are in severely limited editions and/or are signed by him. The manuscripts are essentially autobiographical. The letters include those to and from Terry Risk; also to the booksellers David Low and Robin Waterfield. The broadside is The Unconstitutional Crisis, a protest against the Abdication of King Edward VIII. Finally there is a complete set of The Right Review magazines which except for the last two belonged to Richard Aldington. Count Potocki of Montalk (1903-97) was an eccentric poet, private press printer, polemicist, and the self-proclaimed "King of Poland". He was born in New Zealand but went to Europe in 1926 where he lived for many years in England and then from 1949 at the Villa Vigoni, a ramshackle place near Draguignan in the south of France. In 1932 he became involved in a legal case which has often been written about. He was trying then simply to find someone to print a few poems, including an off-color one, so he could send them around to his friends. The printer he approached, seeing the nature of the poems, took them to the police, and Potocki was arrested. He was tried at the Old Bailey and was sentenced to six months in Wormwood Scrubs prison. His travails provoked a good deal of sympathy in the literary world and eventually funds were provided so that he could do his own printing. Over the years he published a variety of things, most notable among them his Right Review which appeared intermittently. However, everything he printed was done with remarkable clumsiness. His work is riddled with faults, from poor design to terrible type-setting to bad inking of his press. He always maintained that if he had had time and money, he could have been one of the world's great printers, but the results, as seen very clearly here, show otherwise. This is a remarkable and very personal collection. Although it is not by any means a complete one of Potocki's work, it does have the essential items, many of them from the hands of the man himself or from those who also knew him. Perhaps someone now will find enough in it to be fascinated. A detailed inventory and images of the collection is available at:

      London: Methuen and Co, 1966. SIGNED BY ERNEST H. SHEPARD. With illustrations throughout by Ernest H. Shepard 8vo, publisher's original green cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spine, with decorated endpapers in green by Shepard, and in the original dustjacket also featuring artwork by Shepard. 320 pp. A very nice, very pleasing copy, SIGNED by the artist. There is some expected typical mellowing or evidence of age, though the book remains handsome and attractive. SIGNED BY ONE OF THE GREAT MASTERS OF ILLUSTRATION FOR CHILDREN'S LITERATURE. ERNEST H. SHEPARD, THE ILLUSTRATOR OF WINNIE THE POOH. 'Shepard’s illustrations to such classics as WIND IN THE WILLOWS and the four primary WINNIE THE POOH books are without doubt one of the great achievements of children’s book illustration. It is important to know though, how remarkable it is that Shepard’s success as an illustrator was not based on the technical power of draughtsmanship, even while we see the amazing and colourful journeys for the eyes that one finds in books by other masters such as Rackham or Dulac. His illustrations are classics for a wholly different reason. To understand, simply look at his drawings through the eyes of childhood, for Shepard’s Mr. Toad and Ratty, like his Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, all cast their compulsive spell because the artist only ever makes them but very slightly removed from the stuffed toys on the nursery shelf or a child's own drawings.'

      New York City, NY: Grove Press, 1966. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Grove Press, 1966. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 409 pages. The author&#39;s debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of the Latin-American Boom, it is now considered a late-modern classic. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very rare. Presents Mario Vargas Llosa&#39;s prodigious first novel. The original title in Spanish is "La Ciudad y Los Perros" ("The City And Its Dogs") , a brutal and scathing title that in the absence of context, could also be taken literally and thereby misunderstood. Vargas Llosa&#39;s novel incorporates penetrating insights about war, love, fraternity, and humanity yet is deeply rooted in Peruvian time and place. Mario Vargas Llosa is the writer/intellectual/philosopher par excellence among the Latin-American geniuses of the so-called Boom: He refuses to be categorized, labeled, and reduced by ideology, whether it is Fascist conservatism, political correctness, or Leftist academicism, what he has condemned as "authoritarianism of the Left and the Right". He considers himself an heir to the great European cultural tradition yet his work is firmly grounded in Latin America&#39;s (not just his native Peru&#39;s) history and mythology. His aesthetics and literary practice - Vargas Llosa has embraced and appropriated every literary genre - prompted Roberto Bolano, his greatest successor, to consider him an inescapable influence, among a handful of others, on contemporary Latin-American literature. That is to say, to be a Latin-American writer is to become a Classical master of language and a Modernist artist, writing in language of the highest quality and reinventing literary form and convention at the same time. Literary genres are inventions of a particular culture&#39;s idea of imagination and storytelling, "templates" that Vargas Llosa transforms into "poetic tales" (in Harold Bloom&#39;s brilliant phrase) . "He has helped evolve the art of the narration" (Nobel Prize Committee) . "Literature shouldn&#39;t be secluded, provincial, or regional. It should be universal even if it has deep roots in one place" (Mario Vargas Llosa) . An absolute "must-have" title for Mario Vargas Llosa collectors. <b><i> This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Mario Vargas Llosa. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. Vargas Llosa signed on top of the page, making his signature that much more prominent. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is the single most beautiful copy of the book we have ever seen. Among "Boom" writers, Mario Vargas Llosa has been grossly under-valued for the longest time even though he rarely does public signings. The collectible value of his books will not only keep but keep going up. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Cervantes Prize, awarded to the greatest living writers in Spanish by the Spanish Government, in 1994. Winner of the Jerusalem Prize in 1995. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARIO VARGAS LLOSA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374520216.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Richard Elman

      December 16 [1966]. Six pages of text, handwritten on both sides of three pages, a tirade against Random House/Pantheon&#39;s "rotten & inexcusable" failure to promote Elman&#39;s book (The Poorhouse State) blended with parallel fears over Random House&#39;s coming launch of his own book (Hell&#39;s Angels). Thompson covers four possible fronts (Aspen, Denver, San Francisco, L.A.) where he might be able to get press for Elman, pausing occasionally to take swipes at Random House, to note that he himself hasn&#39;t yet read Elman&#39;s book ("maybe it&#39;s rotten & inexcusable too - eh?"), and to suggest that he and Elman team up and join the Oklahoma City Police Department. He promises to make efforts on Elman&#39;s behalf but warns that all he can do is mail the books off and "hope for the best. I can&#39;t be too hard-nosed with them because I don&#39;t want to be black-listed before they have a go at mine" (Hell&#39;s Angels, which was officially published the following month). He concludes by asking Elman to do what he can to get Hell&#39;s Angels reviewed: "My entire financial future hangs in the balance." Signed, "HST." A noteworthy letter for a number of reasons, but most importantly because Elman was the person who was most directly responsible for getting Hell&#39;s Angels published. In his memoir, Namedropping, Elman writes about meeting Thompson, who had called him on the basis of their having a mutual friend. After taking Elman on a scary motorcycle ride around Central Park and New York City, Thompson showed him the manuscript of Hell&#39;s Angels, told him their mutual friend had said that he, Elman, had connections in publishing and asked if he could find someone who would be interested in publishing this. Elman had written for The Nation so he showed the piece to Carey McWilliams, the editor of the magazine, and McWilliams printed an excerpt from it in The Nation soon after, the first publication of any portion of the book. Then Elman took the manuscript to his own editor at Pantheon, Sara Blackburn, who loved the book and decided to offer Thompson a contract. At the sales meeting to discuss it, however, Jason Epstein, the editor at Random House, got so excited by the project that he took it from Blackburn and Pantheon and made it a Random House book, offering Thompson a larger contract than Pantheon had (Pantheon was at the time part of the Random House group of publishers, which also included Alfred A. Knopf). A historic letter, at a critical point in Thompson&#39;s career, which sheds light on Thompson&#39;s and Elman&#39;s earlier relationship, when Elman helped Thompson get his work noticed: here the tables are turned, and Elman is seeking Thompson&#39;s help, although Thompson, who still has not yet had a book published, can do little to reciprocate. 500 words; writ large in red pen, on gray paper, folded in thirds for mailing, with a crimped, short tear at the middle of the right margin; near fine. .
