        [THE VERY FIRST MASTER AND MARGARITA] Master i Margarita. Roman [i.e. Master and Margarita: A Novel]

      [In:] Moskva... #11, 1966; #1, 1967. Moscow: Gosudarstvennoe izdanie khudozhstvennoi literatury, 1966-1967. Pp. 6-127 (#11, 1966), pp.56-144 pp. (#1, 1967). 24,9x16 cm. In two issues, both in original printed wrappers, with marbled edges. Very good, spines neatly restored (but without lettering «Moskva», year and # of the issue on them), close tear of p.30 in issue #11 (restored), two close tears of lower margins in issue #1(restored), hardly noticeable restoration of two tiny tears of the front cover (#1). Scarce on the market. The first printed appearance of one of the most influential novels of the 20th century. Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) started to work on his novel in 1928 but stopped writing four weeks before his death, leaving the novel with some unfinished sentences and loose ends. His wife made several attempts to publish the novel but was able to do it only during Khrushchev's Thaw. For the first time the novel was printed in the magazine «Moskva» (i.e. Moscow) with a preface by Konstantin Simonov, afterword by Abram Vulis. It was unexpected, because the magazine was not considered at that time a stronghold of free-thinking. The most liberal magazine of the time was «Noviy mir» (i.e. New World) by Tvardovsky that famously printed Solzhenitsyn. «Moskva» was quite the opposite of that but the circulation of it was 150 thousand, and it is understandable that the novel after that became widely known. Publication was made possible thanks to Vulis' monograph where he presented Bulgakov as a very Soviet writer. Vulis was ordered an afterword. According to the unwritten rules of the time, such publications should have been prefaced with ideologically correct comments. This was done not so much to enlighten the reader as to dull the vigilance of distrustful officials from the Censor Committee. The reader, they say, will be explained that the novel «Master and Margarita» is not «against Soviet power», but «about another.» Vulis understood perfectly what they wanted from him. The editorial board decided to publish the first part of the novel in the eleventh issue of the journal for 1966. That means to quietly wait for authorities' reaction. And if everything goes well, the end of the novel is given in the first issue for the year 1967. That's why preface and afterword, both important, are published with the first chapter - if the reaction was adverse and the second part was never published. According to the researchers, more than 14,000 words were withdrawn from the text (159 censor cuts, of them 138 from the second part). People responsible for the publication of the novel not only considered it possible to erase certain words and phrases from the author's text, but also to throw out whole pieces and episodes, sometimes on many pages (for example, Nikanor Ivanovich's dream, or the scene in Torgsin). Cuts were also made in order to put the novel in the place assigned to it in the magazine («in order to save more space»). When the novel was published in the «Moskva», Bulgakov's wife signed all the changes. This was Simonov's advice: the main thing was to publish the novel, in any form. It's amusing that in «samizdat» separate typewritten lists of notes appeared, that is all pieces of text absent in the magazine publication, with an exact indication of where each missed piece should be inserted. The activity of censorship was thus exposed and pointless.

        Wide Sargasso Sea.

      Andre Deutsch, London 1966 - First edition this "tour de force" (New York Times Book Review). Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Jean Rhys. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Introduction by Francis Wyndham. Jacket design by Eric Thomas. Rare and desirable signed. Wide Sargasso Sea, a masterpiece of modern fiction, was Jean Rhys's return to the literary center stage. She had a startling early career and was known for her extraordinary prose and haunting women characters. With Wide Sargasso Sea, her last and best-selling novel, she ingeniously brings into light one of fiction's most fascinating characters: the madwoman in the attic from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. This mesmerizing work introduces us to Antoinette Cosway, a sensual and protected young woman who is sold into marriage to the prideful Mr. Rochester. Rhys portrays Cosway amidst a society so driven by hatred, so skewed in its sexual relations, that it can literally drive a woman out of her mind.

        MAHO^ NO TORI

      1966. Fine. [MIMEOGRAPH/STENCIL ART] Wakayama Yasoji, poet and artist. MAHO NO TORI. Tokyo, Seienso. N.D [1966?]. #6 of 80 copies, signed of 180 copies, total. Small western-bound half leather and printed sheet styrofoam? volume, illustrated by Wakayama in his own technique of stencil art, named kohan. 16 x 12.2 cm. The fine art printmaking technique of kohan was developed in 1941 by Wakayama [1903-83], a close associate of Onchi Koshiro. He was an enormously prolific single sheet printmaker using color woodblock and kohan, but this charming little volume is one of his scarce and wonderful artist' books. Much like Takei Takeo, Wakayama appears to have been fascinated by the artistic potential of contemporary industrial materials. Here he has turned to printing using images stencilled via a mimeograph process onto sheets of a styrofoam-like material. The condition of this ultralight and delicate book is excellent, but the images and printed text have suffered from transfer effects, illustrating that not all radical experiments end happily. Still interesting, in the original styrofoam box and cardboard outer shipping box.

        Death of a Naturalist [Signed]

      New York: Oxford University Press, 1966. First American Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine-. First Printing of the poet's critically acclaimed first commercially published work (preceded by the privately printed pamphlet, Eleven Poems, in 1965), one of only 1,000 copies (bound from sheets purchased from Faber and Faber, Heaney's London publisher). Tall, slim 8vo: 57,[1]pp. Publisher's aquamarine cloth, spine lettered in gilt; typographic dust jacket printed in salmon-pink and olive, lettered black, priced $3.75. Signed by Heaney on the title page. A stunning copy, tight, square and likely unread; about Fine jacket, fresh and bright, with usual fading to the fugitive salmon-pink on bottom half of spine panel but all lettering undiminished. Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award, the Cholmondeley Award, the Eric Gregory Award, and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. Heaney received the Nobel Prize in literature, in 1995. Brandes & Durkan A2b. A collection of 34 poems largely concerned with rural life, often in the context of childhood experiences and the formulation of adult identities and intimate relationships. It includes "Digging," "Death of a Naturalist," "Blackberry-Picking," among others. "Seamus Heaney has been, for good or ill, internationally the most prominent and the most popular Irish poet of the latter part of the twentieth century and the first part of the twenty-first. . . . His first two collections, Death of a Naturalist and Door into the Dark [a signed copy of which we also have on offer], largely written before the renewed outbreak of the so-called 'Troubles' in 1968, show Heaney alerting his audience to the violent history of colonisation on his native ground, but preoccupied also by the rhythms of life in a rural setting remembered from his childhood. He also, in a Wordsworthian manner, focuses upon the sources and resources of his own poetic voice and power." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        Bell Jar, The

      London: Faber & Faber, 1966. First Edition thus. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Printing under the author's name. Small 8vo; [4], 258pp. Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gilt (still brilliant); illustrated dust jacket priced at 25s. A Very Fine copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a Fine jacket. Often identified as the second edition, this is, in fact, the third, the second being a reissue by Heinemann under its Contemporary Fiction imprint, still bearing the pseudonym 'Victoria Lucas,' in 1964. Plath's only novel, this roman à clef was published just one month before her suicide under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. It "provides a savvy critique of gender and class relations in Cold War America, a psychological journey through illness and recuperation, a complex exploration of female identity . . . Although Plath dismissed the book as a 'potboiler' when describing it to her mother, probably because she knew it would hurt her mother's feelings, she felt excited while writing it, and it remains an impressive achievement today."

        Tarantula.

      Madison, Wisconsin: Wimp Press, c. 1966. First pirated edition. Octavo, original wrappers as issued. Signed by Bob Dylan in a contemporary hand on the title page. A very good example with the cover a little rubbed and marked. One of the earliest pirated editions of Dylan's novel, taken from the Macmillan 1966 proofs after production was delayed, pre-dating the 1971 trade edition. Scarce and desirable signed by Dylan. Written in 1966, Tarantula is a collection of poems and prose that evokes the turbulence of the times in which it was written, and gives a unique insight into Dylan's creative evolution. It captures Bob Dylan's preoccupations at a crucial juncture in his artistic development, showcasing the imagination of a folk poet laureate who was able to combine the humanity and compassion of his country roots with the playful surrealism of modern art. Angry, funny, and strange, the poems and prose in this collection reflect the concerns found in Dylan's most seminal music: a sense of protest, a verbal playfulness and spontaneity, and a belief in the artistic legitimacy of chronicling everyday life and eccentricity on the street.

All in all, an attractive set. During the Second World War, Leigh Fermor was stationed in Albania, Greece, and occupied Crete, where, disguised as a shepherd in the mountains, he helped organize the resistance. After the War he traveled in the West Indies and then settled in Greece. Mani, an exploration of that country's southernmost promontory, one of the most isolated regions of the world, is considered by some his finest book. ("Almost every page has its own literary tour de force, often with intimidating displays of learning and research mixed with fantasy, imagination and acute descriptions of the scene itself." Robin Hanbury-Tenison, Geographical: 76; pp. 42-49). It was followed by a sequel, Roumeli (the ancient name for the lands from the Bosphorus to the Adriatic and from Macedonia to the Gulf of Corinth) explores Northern Greece and its minority communities, taking the reader among Sarakatsan shepherds, the monasteries of Meteora and the villages of Krakora, among itinerant peddlers and beggars. Leigh Fermor was widely regarded as Britain's greatest travel writer during his lifetime, and he was once described as "a cross between Indiana Jones, James Bond and Graham Greene." N. B.
