      Northampton, Massachusetts: Gehenna Press, 1970. ONE OF 100 COPIES with a portrait of the author signed by Baskin, from a total edition of 300 copies. Hardcover. 197 x 114 mm (7 3/4 x 4 1/2"). 1 p.l. (half title), 236 pp., [3] leaves, 237-243, [1] pp. Translation and commentary by Alex Page. ONE OF 100 COPIES with a portrait of the author signed by Baskin, from a total edition of 300 copies. Very pretty gray crushed morocco by Gray Parrot (his ticket on rear pastedown), covers with gilt rule border and delicate foliate frame, upper cover with Goethe's initials within three joined vase-shaped ornaments, raised bands decorated with plain and floral rules, turn-ins densely gilt, handmade batiked endpapers, top edge gilt. In a marbled paper folding box backed with (slightly faded) matching morocco. With frontispiece portrait of Goethe and 25 etchings in the text by Leonard Baskin, and with an additional etched color portrait of Goethe on Japanese paper, signed by Baskin and identified in pencil in the artist's hand as a "touched proof." Printed in Baskerville monotype on Monadnock WvG paper by pressman Harold McGrath. Brook 65. A hint of creasing to gutter edge of additional mounted print, otherwise a near-mint copy, immaculate internally, and in an unworn binding. This is the limited version of a lovely little work from a leading American private press, bound by one of the best living binders in the country. The text is Goethe's collection of poems inspired by Islam and the East, presented here with the German text on the left-hand page and the English text, in italics, on the right. The poems are enriched by Baskin's imaginative etchings, and our special copy has a colored etching of Goethe as an older man. Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) was a sculptor, book-illustrator, wood-engraver, printmaker, graphic artist, writer, and teacher. He founded the Gehenna Press in 1942 while still a student at Yale (the name coming from a line in Milton's "Paradise Lost": "And black Gehenna call';d, the type of Hell"). The press has published more than 100 fine books and certainly must be considered one of the most successful private presses ever, given its longevity, its consistently high aesthetic achievement, and the unusual size of its output. In addition to the signed Baskin etching, the full morocco binding here sets our copy apart. Over the years, master New England binder Gray Parrot has produced a substantial amount of very respected work for Dard Hunter, for Pennyroyal, and for other private presses, and his services are highly sought after.

        Louis Armstrong: An American Genius

      Enriched by multiple, carefully preserved additions, including Louis Armstrong's twice signed, inscribed place card from a Friars Club Testimonial Dinner, (for Tom Jones at the New York Hilton, April 17, 1970). On the upper side, L. Armstrong is finely printed in gold by an unknown calligrapher. Inside, Louis Armstrong's pen & ink presentation is carefully done for Bill Moines, longtime columnist for the Worcester Telegram-Gazette in a flowing, buoyant hand. He has signed as Satchmo and Louis Armstrong. The event is meticulously documented by Moines in his neat handwriting on the rear of the card, which is in fine condition, now in an archival sleeve. An insider's note by Bill Moines on the death in Boston of Lucille Armstrong is handwritten in pen & ink on the rear endpaper. Also formerly laid-in, now in archival sleeves, are 3 neatly excised clippings, reviews of the book from the New York Times Book Review and the New Republic, and an obituary for Louis Armstrong's second wife, Lil Hardin Armstrong, taken from the Worcester Telegram-Gazette. A few passages in the clippings are underlined and Moines has noted the publication name and date of issue when they are not identified. SUMMARY: An essential work on Louis Armstrong based on extensive original research and the first comprehensive biography to demythologize his life story. It was much praised for this and at the same time criticized for its equally independent critical appraisal of Armstrong's music and recordings. Collier, an accomplished trombonist has written extensively on American jazz music. PLACE CARD: with intrinsic, horizontal center fold design (to stand propped up), open size-80 x 100 mm, inscribed and signed in blue ink twice on the inside of the card by Louis Armstrong. CONDITION DETAIL: Card: Fine. Clippings: Excellent with customary folds. Book: Pages: as new. Covers: fresh and clean with one light ding on the bottom edge of the lower side. Binding: Fine. Jacket: bright and clean, price on jacket flap; the upper side with one tiny spot of wear on the top edge, adjacent to crown (of spine); lower side with area of light wear on bottom edge. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, ix, preliminaries; 383 pages with notes, discography and index; illustrated with a center suite of plates, 16 pages of captioned, b/w illustrations, principally photographs. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        ALS: 2 original letters from Julia and Paul Child to Richard Gildenmeister, with an original photograph and several newspaper clippings

      Two original letters from Julia Child, dated 1970 and 1976. The first, handwritten by Julia on stationary from the Barclay in Philadelphia and dated November 3rd (postmark indicates 1970), reads: "Dear Dick: Would that we were not so far away from you and Higbees, and from the Cleveland we saw so little of. Our warm welcome from all of you has made us sentimental about you, and we hope to come back again, stay longer, and feel that we can really have time to get acquainted. Please give our warmest remembrances to everyone, especially the Kordalski's, Strawbridges. Claudette, and all the good people in the book store. Our thanks to you, in particular, for first-class arrangements. Love from all of us to all of you. Paul + Julia Child". The second letter is typed on letterhead from the Ecole des Trois Gourmandes, dated April 2, 1976: "Dear Richard: We've just returned from 3 months in France, and I am enjoying your letter written I don't know when, but after we missed seeing you, to our most profound regret- remembering the good time we had with you some years ago. And now we most sincerely hope you are out of the ho0spital and perfectly all right- awful to be there having tests and not to know what the H. is wrong. We pray all is fine. You said you wanted an autographed book, so I am enclosing one of our paste-on slips, signed by both of us, that you can put in your copy. All is fine here with us, and spring is very slowly poking her lovely head out of the ground in the form of crocuses. Take good care of yourself, and congratulations on your new big job! Affectionately, Mrs. Paul Child". The letter is signed, simply, "Julia", and the mentioned paste-on slip is also included, a printed plate with a small illustration, inscribed in Julia's writing, "Bon Appetit- and all the best to Richard Gildenmeister", and is signed by both Julia and Paul. Included with this lot are a series of newspaper articles about Child, and an original 8 x 10 glossy silver gelatin photograph of Julia Child and Richard Gildenmeister at a book signing. Richard Gildenmeister is a renowned book dealer who maintained friendly correspondence with many prominent writers and celebrities through the late 20th century.

        The Sopping Thursday

      NY: Gotham Book Mart, 1970. One of twenty-six deluxe lettered copies, signed by Gorey, with an original drawing laid in. The drawing, a pen and ink wash, depicts a cat sitting in a little toy wagon in the rain, next to an ominous boot-scraper. This is an additional illustration not published in the book, which recounts the events of a rainy day, including a dog’s search for his master’s umbrella and much speculation about the weather. The Sopping Thursday is the first of only three of Gorey’s primary works that included original drawings with the deluxe editions. This title, therefore, is extremely rare in the deluxe state. Troubador Press proprietor Malcolm Whyte writes, “Captivating as Edward Gorey’s printed illustrations are, his art is even more so in the original. Here we see his hand at work as lines thicken and thin out with varying pressure... A sense of immediacy brings the art alive.” Spine label slightly toned, else very fine in illustrated boards. Housed in a gray slipcase.

        Preliminary cover design for Penny Candy, by Edward Fenton

      c. 1970. Watercolor and ink on paper, measuring 8 1/4 by 7 1/4 inches. Archivally matted and framed. Preliminary artwork for the cover design of Fenton’s book, a fantasy story based on the English “Tinker Tailor” rhyme. A copy of the trade paperback edition of the book, which was published by Holt in 1970, is included in a sleeve affixed to the back of the frame. The key differences between this preliminary drawing and the finished work are most discernible in the five children standing in front of the candy counter: in the preliminary artwork, the children’s clothing is colored, their arrangement is different, as is their height in relation to the counter. Gorey also used some ink flourishes to make the titling, which lines up vertically on either side of the central image, appear more like pieces of candy. This was not used in the published version. Gorey’s watercolor work for published books seldom appears on the market. Very fine in an attractive black acrylic and resin frame.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1970.. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good +/Very Good+. Book is clean although there is some minor water staining to top of front board. It has just leached through onto the very top of the fixed and free end papers. Previous owners initials and '70 written in red on end paper. Jacket has slight wear at base of spine from an old label (and on both panels where it went around) but it is not that noticeable unless looked at to look at the images. Minor wear at base of spine and nicks to corners. Light wear to spine hinges and a couple of tears at top of spine that have been repaired internally with archival paper. A water stain is visible on the inside of the jacket at top of spine but it does not show at all when looked at from the outside. Tiny loss at corners and front top spine hinge. The colours on the jacket are pretty bright and fresh and overall the jacket looks ok (certainly better than the list of faults might indicate). Price present. Postage will be confirmed when you enquire or order and for light or very heavy books will vary from the ABE quote which is based on a 1kg parcel.

        Preliminary cover design for Penny Candy, by Edward Fenton

      c. 1970. Watercolor and ink on paper, measuring 8 1/4 by 7 1/4 inches. Archivally matted and framed. Preliminary artwork for the cover design of Fenton's book, a fantasy story based on the English "Tinker Tailor" rhyme. A copy of the trade paperback edition of the book, which was published by Holt in 1970, is included in a sleeve affixed to the back of the frame. The key differences between this preliminary drawing and the finished work are most discernible in the five children standing in front of the candy counter: in the preliminary artwork, the children's clothing is colored, their arrangement is different, as is their height in relation to the counter. Gorey also used some ink flourishes to make the titling, which lines up vertically on either side of the central image, appear more like pieces of candy. This was not used in the published version. Gorey's watercolor work for published books seldom appears on the market. Very fine in an attractive black acrylic and resin frame.
