        The Lieutenant

      NY: Dial. 1967. His first book, and his only novel -- a military tale not unlike William Styron's book The Long March -- a story of the peacetime military and the challenges to manhood and honor that its rigid code of morals creates. Dubus was once quoted as saying that after he wrote this novel someone introduced him to Chekhov's short stories, and he threw away the manuscript of what was to be his next novel and began writing short fiction -- of which he became one of our most acclaimed and accomplished practitioners. This copy is stamped "Sale" on the front flyleaf, but is otherwise fine in a fine, price-clipped dust jacket with a speck of rubbing on the rear panel. A very sharp copy of a book that seldom turns up in this condition. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine.

It lists some addresses to contact, a few of levy's publications with the caveat "most of d.a.a's own editions are still being held by the cleveland police. inquire c o the narcotics dept., central police station station, cleveland 44114." At the bottom it reads, cynically, "now we have fooled ourselves into having a 'purpose' for the present. our thanx to d.a. for his recent action [i.e. his suicide], which allowed for this accomplishment." This copy and its associated papers are a great historical package that truly conjure up the life and work of d.a. levy, as well as the shock of his death and its immediate aftermath.

        Marc Chagall-The Circus With The Yellow Clown-1967 Mourlot Lithograph

The condition of this piece has been graded as B: Very Good Condition, with signs of handling or age. Here is some supplemental information about the Lithograph: First edition lithograph Poster created for an exhibition of lithographs and engravings at the Berggruen Gallery in Paris. Published by Berggruen, Paris. Number 50 in ‘Chagall's Posters - A Cataloque Raisonne', Sorlier, 1975. Mounted on linen.Chagall's early life left him with a "powerful visual memory and a pictorial intelligence". After living in France and experiencing the atmosphere of artistic freedom, his "vision soared and he created a new reality, one that drew on both his inner and outer worlds." But it was the images and memories of his early years in Belarus that would sustain his art for more than 70 years.Of circus people he said, "Why am I so touched by their make-up and grimaces? With them I can move forward toward new horizons. Chaplin seeks to do in film what I am trying to do in my paintings. He is perhaps the only artist today I could get along with without having to say a single word." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

I've never had the depressing conviction that something just didn't 'work.' By now, I'm afraid I'm utterly and completely disenchanted with what I've written, and shall have to begin all over again. I have many times tried to begin Scene 2, and found myself in a paralytic vice of creative blockage. I may find that I am unable finally to do this opera, though at this point I don't accept that idea."3.

After hearing Hoiby's earlier opera, A Month in the Country (the revised version of his Natalia Petrovna, based on a play by Ivan Turgenev, premiered by the New York City Opera in 1964), Tennessee Williams approached Hoiby with the suggestion that he might be interested in writing an opera based on one of Williams's works. Hoiby's setting of Summer and Smoke was the result; it is the first opera to be based on a Williams play and is perhaps Hoiby's most famous work. Commissioned by the St. Paul Opera Association, Summer and Smoke was composed in 1970 and premiered on June 19th 1971 in St. Paul, Minnesota with Igor Buketoff conducting. It went on to a production by the New York City Opera on March 12th 1971 under Julius Rudel. "It continues to be performed with substantial success, and its 1980 production by the Chicago Opera Theater was broadcast in June 1982 by PBS-TV (WTTW), Chicago, and seen nationally. For its production during the Lee Hoiby Festival at California State University, Long Beach in 1989. Hoiby added a new scene in Act 1 drawn from his Three Women: Scenes for Soprano, Saxophone and Piano (1988).". Summer and Smoke is a skilful interweaving of offstage music and spoken passages.

Together with a 1-1/2 pp. closely-typed copy of a letter dated February 13, 1967 written by Hoiby to the librettist of the work recounting in considerable detail the challenges hewas having composing the work: "I have been in the lowest of depths for about the last two months, all because of Summer and Smoke... I've never had the depressing conviction that something just didn't 'work.' By now, I'm afraid I'm utterly and completely disenchanted with what I've written, and shall have to begin all over again. I have many times tried to begin Scene 2, and found myself in a paralytic vice of creative blockage... I may find that I am unable finally to do this opera, though at this point I don't accept that idea." 3.

It is a lyrical, poetic and compelling work that critics praised as America's most successful opera to date. Paul Hume (writing in the Washington Post) considered it an 'opera of immense emotional power flooded with music of great beauty'." Elise Kirk in Grove Music Online. Considered "a modern Romantic from the lineage of Barber and Menotti, "Hoiby's Summer and Smoke is regarded as having achieved "an eloquence comparable to the later works of Barber." op. cit. More recently, the work was revived at the Manhattan School of Music, where it received three performances in December, 2010: "When... Summer and Smoke... had its premiere in 1971, it was criticized by some for its conservative music, awash in the harmonic language of Menotti (Mr. Hoiby's mentor), Barber and Mahler, and its unabashedly lyrical vocal writing. But the work, with an effective and delicately poetic libretto by the playwright Lanford Wilson, also won deserved praise for doing what an opera is supposed to do: telling the story with sure dramatic pacing and understated expressivity, in music admirable for its directness and melodic grace." "These qualities shone through on Wednesday night when the Manhattan School of Music Opera Theater presented the first of three performances, with Mr. Hoiby, 84, in attendance. The conductor Steven Osgood drew supple, beautifully restrained playing from the able musicians." "Set in Glorious Hill, a small Mississippi town, the story unfolds during several momentous months in the lives of two young adults who grew up as neighbors: John Buchanan Jr., a dashing doctor, and Alma Winemiller, the sweet but inhibited daughter of a pious minister. The handsome production, directed by Dona D. Vaughn, using windows and sets that descend into place, imaginatively evoked the neighboring houses: the staid sitting room in the rectory where the Winemillers live and the doctor's office where young John Buchanan practices with his father." Anthony Tommasini in The New York Times, December 9, 2010. A remarkable assemblage of material documenting the creation and production of what has been described as one of the finest operas composed by an American.

        Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead.

      London: Faber & Faber, 1967. First edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a hint of toning to the spine. Signed by Tom Stoppard on the title page. With "Compliments of Tom Stoppard" slip laid in. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A superior example. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the wormÂ’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in ShakespeareÂ’s play. In Tom StoppardÂ’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead [is] verbally dazzlingthe most exciting, witty intellectual treat imaginable." (Edith Oliver, The New Yorker).
