        Scrap: The New York Sunday Supplement [subtitle varies] Nos. 1-8 [Complete Run]

      New York: Scrap, nd. Each issue a single sheet folded twice, as issued, and offset printed, the first issue on white paper, and subsequent issues on white paper with a greenish tint. Illustrated with several reproductions to an issue. Near fine with marginal toning and a single short 1/3" closed tear to margin only of issue no. 1. & & All issues published of perhaps the most legendary art zine of the early 60's, which chronicled the rise of Abstract Expressionism and other goings on. No. 3 includes a review by Jasper Johns of Marcel Duchamp's The Bridge Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors, Even. Issue four critiques the Peter Selz essay for MOMA's Mark Rothko exhibition - by reproducing the entire essay, with footnotes added and the critique running parallel. Issue six was devoted to artist statements on their own work, including a piece by Alex Katz, Wolf Kahn, Philip Pearlswtein, Mary Frank, Milton Resnick et al. The issues also include poetry and critical articles by Margaret Randall. The original issues of Scrap appeared on extremely cheap newsprint, and few examples survive. At some point (the MOMA catalogue entry points to 1971) Geist made a reprint on better paper, reportedly also in very small numbers - we believe this to be that 1971 reprint set - but still extremely scarce in the reprint.

        THE CONFESSIONS OF EDWARD DAHLBERG [The Dedication Copy]

      New York: George Braziller, 1971. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/near fine. 8vo. Near fine in like jacket. Touches of wear to extremities. Else bright and sharp. INSCRIBED by Dahlberg to book's dedicee, Lew Feldman: "My dear Lew. I do hope the Boke [underlined] dedicated to you will please you. Your friend Edward. Oct 21, 70. NYC." Additionally laid in are two typed signed letters dated 1970 from Dahlberg to Feldman in original envelopes (100+ and 25+ words each respectively), one xerox of Kirkus review of CONFESSIONS, as well as one typed signed letter from Edwin Seaver at George Braziller conveying the book to Feldman. The dedication copy of this late work by the prolific Dahlberg, a memoir of the bohemian writer's life as well as his intellectual and sexual development. Modeled in part on St. Augustine and Rousseau, CONFESSIONS follows-up and in many ways revises his highly regarded autobiography BECAUSE I WAS FLESH (1964). Warmly inscribed to Lew Feldman, famed book dealer of the House of El Dieff, to whom CONFESSIONS is dedicated ("To Lew D. Feldman with affectionate gratitude."). Feldman and Dahlberg were close, as evidenced not only by the dedication, but also by the typed letter included when the book was sent by the publisher to Feldman. In part: "Thank you so much for your enchanting reply; such a human answer itself merits the dedication I so joyfully gave to the man who has done so much for me." And later in the same letter, Dahlberg adds in his own hand: "Lew, you have great human sweetness as archaic nowadays as the learing [?] of the heart which is the only erudition that a worth a [damn?]." An exceptional association between one of America's most prominent men of letters and and one of her most prominent bookmen. 312pp. with index.

        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.

        Riotous Assembly

      Secker and Warburg, London 1971 - 8vo, pp. 249. Original printed orange wrappers. Spine a little rolled, a little light edgewear and bumping. About near fine. Uncorrected advance proof copy. EDITOR JOHN BLACKWELL'S COPY WITH HIS INITIALS TO FRONT WRAPPER, AND HIS CORRECTIONS THROUGHOUT. John Blackwell joined Secker and Warburg in the late 1960s when the imprint was still an independent company run by Fredric Warburg himself, and was a constant presence through the company's innumerable corporate takeovers, mergers and changes of managing director. As well as editing Sharpe, John Blackwell played literary midwife to J. M. Coetzee, Michael Moorcock, Tom McGuane, Malcolm Bradbury and Louis de Bernieres, among many others. His emendations in this, his own copy, are made in red ink, and are mostly typographical and grammatical corrections; here and there, deletions have been made in blue.
