        The Word

      (San Francisco, 2010). Quarto. 10ff. Original calligraphic manuscript by Ingmire of the text from a section of Paz’s poem “Blanco.” This poem, which was published in 1967, has been linked to Paz’s time in India, and it can be read as a figurative exploration of Indian religious philosophy. “The spirit is an invention of the body/ The body is an invention of the world/ The world is an invention of the spirit”, all of which is rooted in the Word, which also harkens back to the Logos at the beginning of the Gospel of John. In treating this text, Ingmire has envisioned the first section of the poem as a text that is revealed from an abstract drawing on the facing page, as if emerging from the blotting of the drying ink. This treatment reaches its climax in the center spread, where the text is written in alternating lines of black and raised gold against a marbled background, and what appeared as strange and jarring is suddenly transformed into something harmonious and striking. A bold interpretation by Ingmire, whose work has balanced traditional calligraphy with modern, innovative techniques and an astounding ability in his use of gold script. Bound in heavy handmade paper wrappers with the title in vertical blocks on the front cover. Housed in a complimentary folding case by the Foolscap Press. Extremely fine.

        The Magus [Fowles' Screenplay - Rare]

      London: Blazer Films. 1967. Fowles' screenplay for the 1968 film of his second novel, a near-fantasy set on a Greek island and involving a young expatriate Englishman who is drawn into the fantastic designs of a self-styled psychic. The film, with Anthony Quinn, Michael Caine, Candice Bergen and Anna Karina, gained a cult following in the Sixties. The cast included two of the best-known male leads of their time (Quinn & Caine), an up-and-coming young actress who had been nominated for a "Most Promising Newcomer" Golden Globe two years earlier (Bergen), and Anna Karina, a staple in the films of French avant garde director Jean-Luc Godard. The director was Guy Green, a former cinematographer, and while the material may have been a bit much for Green, whose previous movies had been more straightforward than the complicated, partly fantastic plot that Fowles' novel presented him with, the film was nominated for a British Academy award for cinematography. This script bears the name of David Harcourt and has revision sheets dated September 4, 7 and 12, and November 25, 1967. Harcourt is listed as a camera operator on a production schedule (laid in) dated August 15, 1967. Also laid in is the shooting schedule for November 11. These sheets are torn and sunned, but the script itself is near fine and claspbound in very good red covers. An early, complete piece of writing by Fowles, and likely the scarcest item in his bibliography: the Harry Ransom Center acquired a copy with Fowles' papers; the University of Iowa has a copy in its 20th Century Fox collection. It is Fowles' only screenplay to have been produced, and we have never heard of another copy coming on the market. . First Edition.

        Dialogue. Journal des Livres et des Idees", Septembre 1967, no. 3 [Signed by Sanavio and by Pound]

      Lausanne, 1967. First edition. Newspaper format. Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of the September, 1967 issue of "Dialogue. Journal des Livres et des Idees", the Swiss literary and philosophical newspaper. The entire issue is devoted to praise of Ezra Pound and was published in an attempt to persuade the Nobel Committee to award the Nobel Prize in Literature to Pound, with the primary supportive article being written by Piero Sanavio. This copy has been INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY PIERO SANAVIO TO EZRA POUND at the top of the front page as follows: "To Ezra for a happy new year. Piero Sanavio ~ ". This copy ALSO HAS BEEN SIGNED BY EZRA POUND (in a stylish manner and with two exclamation points) on the front page adjacent to his printed portrait. Italian author, poet, translator, and prestigious literature professor Piero Sanavio was born in 1922 to a highly-literary and pro-fascist family. Both a Rockefeller Fellow and a Literary ambassador for the United Nations, Sanavio taught, among other places, at Harvard, Brandeis, University of Michigan, Yale, and Princeton, and championed Pound throughout his career. [Notably, disillusioned with England due to the carnage of World War I, which he blamed on usury and international capitalism, Pound relocated to Italy in 1925 where he later embraced Mussolini's fascism, vocalized support for Hitler, and wrote for publications owned by Oswald Mosley (founder of the British Union of Fascists). During World War II Pound, paid by Italy, made hundreds of radio broadcasts critical of the United States and, as a result thereof, American forces arrested him for treason in 1945.] This issue also contains writing in support of Pound by George Seferis, Eugenio Montale, Ernest Hemingway, and T. S. Eliot, each of whom won the Nobel Prize in Literature, as well as by notable literary figures Edith Sitwell, Lewis Wyndham. This copy, from the Estate of Actor and decorated Naval Officer Douglas Fairbanks with his bookplate loosely laid in, is in excellent condition for such a delicate item, showing mild toning and with the usual newspaper-style spine fold, one additional vertical fold, and one horizontal fold, typical of a newspaper one might fold an extra time to carry under one's arm. There is some wear at the horizontal fold with a tiny split at each end of the fold -- one of which produces a tiny hole at what becomes the center of the issue when it is opened -- and with a tiny hole at what is the center of numbered page 3. (The entire issue is comrised of a single large sheet with printing on both the recto and the verso, producing 4 numbered newspaper-style sheets when folded.) Ephemeral in nature, not very many copies will have survived to the present day and thus the issue itself is quite scarce. Signed copies of this publication are, of course, RARE. A scarce copy of this issue of "Dialogue", devoted entirely to Ezra Pound, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED TO EZRA POUND BY PIERO SANAVIO and ALSO SIGNED BY EZRA POUND. QUITE RARE.

        THE MASTER AND MARGARITA

      Paris: YMCA Press, 1967. First edition. Near Fine. First edition in book form, preceded only by the Moscow Magazine printing. Perfect-bound in printed wraps, text in Russian. A nearly Fine copy with minor toning to the covers and one small tear at the inner margin of the front free end paper. Otherwise, this excellent copy is clean and unread. Scarce on the market, exceptionally so in this condition. & & This book is the author's masterpiece and considered by many the finest novel to come out of Russia in the twentieth century. Started in 1928, Bulgakov burned the manuscript in 1930, only to re-write and revise it for the next ten years until his death. A socio-political satire oscillating between two realities, one where the Devil and his entourage take a flat in 1930s Russia and wreak havoc on society in a series of amusing escapades, the second in Pontius Pilot's Jerusalem, where he condemns Jesus, despite grave misgivings. A work of unique humor and profound insight, it builds upon the great 19th century Russian predecessors and is now a foundation of the modern Russian literary canon. Near Fine.

        "Like to watch television with a girl." [original drawing, ca.1974]

      Very Good+. [slight browning at edges, two small liquid-paper touch-up spots at right-hand corners; signed "BUK"; see note about mounting]. This is an original ink-on-paper drawing, measuring 8-1/2" x 11", by the celebrated L.A. poet/novelist, one of many he made to illustrate his long-running "Notes of a Dirty Old Man" column, which began in the counterculture newspaper "Open City" in 1967 and migrated to the "Los Angeles Free Press" in 1969 when "Open City" folded. (I have not yet been able to pin down a specific publication date for this particular drawing, although it unquestionably dates from the 1973-1974 period.) Bukowski's "Notes" column, which ended in 1976, was probably the single biggest contributing factor to both the spread of his literary fame and his notoriety as a hard-living, hard-drinking L.A. character: in the almost ten years of its run, he went from being a struggling poet (who still worked full-time at the post office) to an internationally-known figure. The "Notes" alternated irregularly between prose and poetry, and his crude yet evocative doodles -- which were also very funny, in a deadpan-hilarious way -- were an important element. Alas, when the columns were collected and reprinted, the illustrations were omitted and some of the flavor thus lost -- as were, in fact, the drawings themselves. This drawing, and the others we're offering for sale, are from the personal collection of L.A. poet-publisher Michael C Ford, who found them while cleaning out his desk at the end of his own tenure as a Freep staffer in late 1974; when he offered them to Bukowski, he was told "ah, you hang onto ‘em kid, they might be worth something someday." That day would be now. [Please note that this particular drawing has been mounted onto a piece of illustration board with two tiny pieces of double-stick tape, at the upper corners. I have been assured by a professional paper conservator that these bits of tape can be removed cleanly, with no damage to the drawing itself and with minimal residue left behind.] Signed by Artist .

One of the greatest novels of the Twentieth century; the Devil comes to Moscow accompanied by an irresistably beautiful vampire maid, a fanged henchman or two and a bipedal gun toting black cat by the name of Behemoth...much hilarity ensues.
