        ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPHED LETTERS, SIGNED (ALS)

      Isla Negra, Chile: circa 1969.. These are two original and unpublished handwritten personal letters, in Spanish, by the Nobel Prize winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, with an envelope addressed and marked "Top Secret" by Neruda, plus one printed invitation from Neruda's wife, Matilde. The Neruda letters are addressed to Mr. Carlos Matus, who was a close friend and neighbor of Neruda in the beach town of Isla Negra in Chile, where Neruda is buried. In the early 1970s, during the government of President Salvador Allende, Carlos Matus was appointed Minister of Economy of Chile and President of the Council and Development Corporation. In 1973 he was imprisoned by the Pinochet dictatorship. Mr. Matus was exiled and passed away in 1998. A complete translation is included. The first letter is two pages in length, and the second is one page. Both letters are written in green ink on Neruda's printed tan stationery, which are folded to fit the envelope, and show minor edge wear. The envelope is torn from careless opening and has two punch holes along the left side. The printed invitation is also folded, with corresponding punch holes, and minor edge wear. The text is both personal and political in nature. Original letters handwritten by Neruda are very scarce, and seldom found offered in the marketplace.

        Collection of 31 books inscribed by Paul Bowles to composer and friend Phillip Ramey

      v.p v.d v.p, v.d. 31 vols., Various sizes, mostly 8vo. . Generally in very good or better condition, unless noted otherwise below . Phillip Ramey is an American composer and writer and was one of Paul Bowles' closest friends towards the end of the author's life. Ramey was for many years the annotator and program editor at the New York Philharmonic and has written the liner notes to hundreds of recordings, as well as a biography of the composer Irving Fine. His Horn Concerto was commissioned by the NY Philharmonic to celebrate their 150th anniversary. Ramey continues to compose and write and is in the process of overseeing the recording of his piano works. Ramey was first introduced to Paul Bowles in 1969 by Aaron Copland and later became a close friend and neighbor of the author, renting Jane Bowles' former apartment in Tangier. (A full account of their meeting and friendship can be found here: http://www.paulbowles.org/memoir.html.) Ramey was an important friend and ally of Bowles in his later years, helping to care for his friend as his health deteriorated and protecting the often besieged author from the various journalists and fanatics that would show up at his Tangier home. Ramey was also important in the rediscovery and appreciation of Bowles' work as a composer and had a hand in the recording of some of his friend's piano works. They remained friends until Bowles' death in 1999. The collection comprises books, mostly by Bowles, inscribed to Ramey during his many stays in Tangier: BOWLES, Paul. Let it Come Down [two copies].

        Signed Photograph of Nixon As President, Inscribed to George Murphy

      Signed Photograph of Nixon As President, Inscribed to George Murphy.& & The Vietnam War was at its height when Nixon was inaugurated in January 1969, and his handling of it was controversial and led to demonstrations by a growing anti-war movement. In November, the March on Washington brought half a million protestors into the streets and a pro-war backlash resulted. It was a time of confrontation. In December, Nixon paused to thank Senator George Murphy, his long-time friend, for his ongoing support. & & A color photograph of him put to an 11 by 14 inch mat, inscribed and signed on the mat "To Senator George Murphy, For whose friendship and support through the years I shall always be grateful, Dick Nixon." He has dated the photograph "12-24-69," so the presentation was signed as president. This is a very uncommon photograph, as few Nixon White House era pictures bear authentic signatures and fewer still are in color. In 1970, Murphy would engineer Nixon's famous meeting with Elvis Presley. The mat is creased at top right. Provenance: the Murphy family. &

        LEAFLETS. POEMS 1965-1968

      New York: W. W. Norton & Company, (1969). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper to Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, and their only child Harriet: "For Elizabeth + Cal + Harriet-/with always more love-/Adrienne." Lowell appropriated the book and the margins are filled with his ticks and slashes and a few words, especially in the section "Ghazals, Homage to Ghalib," a series of meditations on contemporary life modeled on Ghalib; the similarity to the poems Lowell was then working on for NOTEBOOKS and HISTORY is remarkable as is the association value of this copy. Three years later Lowell would publish THE DOLPHIN which Rich called ìa cruel and shallow book" and ìone of the most vindictive and mean-spirited acts in the history of poetry.î Writing in AMERICAN POETRY REVIEW, she said: ìwhat does one say about a poet who, having left his wife and daughter for another marriage, then titles a book with their names [FOR LIZZIE AND HARRIET] and goes on to appropriate his ex-wifeís letters written under the stress and pain of desertion, into a book of poems nominally addressed to the new wife?î
