        PEÑA LABRA. Pliegos de Poesía. Director Aurelio García Cantalapiedra. Números 1 - 68 (todo lo publicado).

      Institución Cultural de Cantabria, 1971 -, Santander - Size: 24x34. 68 números en volúmenes, de unas 44pp cada uno, en pliegos sueltos, cada número en su carpeta editorial. En la tradición de Carmen, Proel y Isla de los Ratones, Peña Labra fue la última gran revista literaria santanderina del siglo XX. Cosa rara entre revistas institucionales - fue publicada por la Diputación Provincial de Santander - destaca por su gran belleza de diseño, y la excepcional calidad de sus reproducciones, obra de la Imprenta Bedia, todavía en sus años de gloria como, quizás, la mejor imprenta de España. Hay números monográficos dedicados a José Luis Hidalgo (Nº 2), Gerardo Diego - en nuestro ejemplar este número lleva dedicatorias autógrafas de José Hierro, García Nieto y otros a la poeta Matilde Camus (4); la revista Corcel (6), Proel (8), Espadaña, José de Ciria y el Ultraismo (18), Vicente Aleixandre (28-29), Juan Ramón Jiménez (40-41), José Hierro (43-44), La Isla de los Ratones (54), Rosalía de Castro (55), Francisco Brines (56), Zenobia Camprubí (64-65); incluye la antología de poetas montañeses - José del Río Sainz, Jesús Cancio, Carlos Salomón, etc. También encontramos contribuciones sueltas, y muchos autógrafos, a lo largo de los 68 números, de autores hispanoamericanos como Miguel Angel Asturas,Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz; material gráfico original de Pancho Cossío, Alvaro Delgado, Julio Maruri, . Uno de los grandes valores de la revista, quizás su mayor punto de interés, fue la publicación de material original e inédita que habían dejado los grandes poetas del 98 y del 27 en manos de José María de Cossío en su casona de Tudanca; de aquí surgen, además de numerosos textos sueltos, facsimiles de folletos practicamente desconocidos como 'El Espejo del Agua' de Vicente Huidobro (1916), el expediente universitario de León Felipe, el número único de la revista 'Reflector' de Ciria; los magníficos monográficos sobre Manuel Machado (Nº 11), Antonio Machado (16), Juan Ramón Jiménez (20), Unamuno (32), Eugenio D'Ors (33), Villalón (34), León Felipe (37), Dámaso Alonso (45),Rafael Alberti (46-47), Federico García Lorca(51), Muy buenos ejemplares. No es raro encontrar números sueltos de esta revista, pero la colección entera es inencontrable. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 2 Euros.

Ever interested by teenage subcultures, Clark chooses young amphetamine users in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, as his subject matter for this book and includes 50 black and white photographs that examine their daily lives. Like many of his other works, Clark presents a dynamic portrayal of troubled teens, juxtaposing their youthful innocence and dark lifestyles, reminding the reader that "Once the needle goes in it never comes out."

Scott's "painstakingly researched Quartet which examines the lives of ordinary Anglo-Indians against the background of the end of Empire [the five years from the Quit India campaign of the Congress Committee to Indian independence, in 1947]. These novels constitute Scott's principal claim to be regarded as a major post-war writer [The Times, in fact, called Scott's quartet "one of the most important landmarks of post-war fiction."] . . . . The Quartet is still perhaps underestimated as an analysis of the pre-Independence roots of the racism Salman Rushdie identified in the 1980s under the label 'the New Empire within Britain.' Scott sacrificed his life to the writing of the Quartet, becoming something of a monomaniacal recluse with tendencies toward alcoholism and occasional domestic violence. His death from cancer, in 1978, in London came at the time his work was just beginning to be appreciated." (The Literary Encyclopedia) TN. B.

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1971. First printing. Hardcover. 159pp. Octavo [21 cm] Black cloth. Very good/Very good. Signed by the author on the front free endsheet. The author's fifth book. Written at a time when his author's wife was dying in a hospital in new Jersey, and partly inspired by a woman who had disappeared at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument while Abbey was a ranger there; this lyrical novel of love in the grand canyon echoes the author's feelings at that time and is unlike anything else he published.

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1971 - First edition. Fine in very good plus dustwrapper with a little rubbing and a couple of tiny nicks. Novel set in Ohio in 1818. Warmly Inscribed by the author to his fellow editor at *The New Yorker* Rachel MacKenzie: "For Rachel with love, Bill. June 21, 1971." Rachel MacKenzie replaced Katherine White as the fiction editor at *The New Yorker* on the recommendation of May Sarton. During her tenure at the magazine MacKenzie was noted for her nurturing and editing of, among others, Sarton, Philip Roth, Muriel Spark, and especially Isaac Bashevis Singer. MacKenzie's enthusiasm led to the magazine devoting an entire issue to Spark's *The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie*. However, the magazine wouldn't publish *Goodbye, Columbus* as she recommended because William Shawn was too squeamish over the more "frank" aspects of the novella. See this book in 3D on our site.
