        POEMS 1928

      Ilkley, West Yorkshire, UK: Privately Printed, 1973. First Thus. Paperback. Near fine. Facsimile of Auden's first book in green printed folder, created for the Ilkley Literary Festival. A special copy: inscribed: To Gabriel [Carritt)] a book Wystan would have liked him to have from Stephen [Spender] Jan 24  '74."  Carritt, Spender, and Auden were Oxford classmates. According to Auden's biographer Humphrey Carpenter, Auden met Carritt in 1927. Carritt, the inspiration for some of his earliest love poetry didn't fully reciprocate Auden's passion but their friendship persisted for 45 years. In 1930 they took a walking tour over Easter vacation visiting Hadrian's Wall. Approximately 100 copies were printed (this the issue in green folder) for sale at the festival, and reproduced with the poet's corrections from the Durham University copy. The first edition prepared by Spender for friends in an edition of about 30 copies is nearly impossible to obtain. This extraordinary association copy a facsimile prepared for an event that featured one of Auden's last public readings is of a different order, but nonetheless quite special. The book is fine lacking the errata slip (facsimile) with foreword and lightly creased folder.

        Cold Cream Alley: A Collection of Poems by Joe Hendrick

      Unpaginated 9 x 8 softcover of Joe Hendricks's first printed poetry collection, together with eight art 13 x 12 portfolios containing two prints, and one portfolio containing a three-page musical composition, by: Joe Hendrick, Ramon Santiago, Robert Conge, Joe Matott, Charles W. Haas, Ray Mayo, Robert E. Smith, Julianna Furlong Williams, Lawrence M. Williams, and Gerry Niewood. Also includes single sheet with an introduction by Jacquelyne Schuman, and a photo of the ten contributors on the reverse. The name Cold Cream Alley comes from Rochester, New York's Cold Cream Building, in which Hendrick worked. The images included were created specially for this project, and the portfolios are their first appearance in print. An impressive example of multi-disciplinary creativity, typography, design, and artistic collaboration, similar to some of the productions of various artistic and literary collectives of the 50s, 60s, and 70s (the Beat Poets, Black Mountain Poets, etc.), but also to some of the fine press productions that would become popular somewhat later. Quite scarce - we found 4 copies in institutional collections, three of which are located in Rochester, one other copy offered for sale, and no records of sale at auction. Limited edition, #173 of 250. Hand-numbered and signed by Hendrick on title page, all portfolios hand-numbered and signed by contributors. Tiny spot on front of slipcase. Rochester: GM / DuBois Corp., 1973. Limited Edition. Collectible; Like New/Not Applicable.

        Port of Saints

      London, England: Covent Garden Press Limited/ Am Here Books, 1973 (1975). Limited First Edition. Hardcover in Slipcase. Very Fine/Very fine. The earliest, rarest edition of a key work by William S. Burroughs, the foremost author-prophet of the Beat Generation & beyond. As stated in Eric C. Shoaf's WSB Collector's Guide: "...this first edition was hardbound in a dust jacket and housed in a white slipcase. It consisted of 100 copies numbered and signed by Burroughs. Later editions by Blue Wind Press vary slightly in text and also lack the illustrations of (this) production. This was Burroughs' last written work in England before the return to America in the mid- seventies, and contains much material which was to lead to his first major work of the 1980s, Cities of the Red Night. Although dated 1973, the publication was not issued until 1975 due to labor and paper supply difficulties." (Section I, No. 28, pg. 40) Presented here is copy No. 73/100, hand-numbered & signed by WSB on limitation/colophon page. Additionally, WSB has hand-written on the title page: "For Don Kaufman/ Sorry this book is full/ of errors owing to the/ disorganization of the/ printers who were going/ into bankruptcy/ (signed) William S. Burroughs." Donald L. Kaufman (1927-2015) was a venerable professor of English at the University of Southern Florida and a major collector, particularly of Norman Mailer, about whom he wrote several distinguished studies. WSB appears to refer to co-publisher Covent Garden Press Limited, which is noted as the printer on copyright page, & thus offers insight into the nature of the "labor and paper supply difficulties" this production encountered. The illustrations noted by Shoaf as exclusive to this edition include photographs of WSB's young companion in London posing as characters in this text, and in the subsequent 1980s trilogy it anticipates. Also briefly noted in Maynard & Miles as not included in the bibliography due to its late release (pg. xxi). Among the rarest WSB collectibles, further & greatly enriched by the relatively lengthy & intimate inscription with second signature, & with significant association & provenance. In exceptionally very fine condition: Book with only a few small areas of faint ink smudging on white background of back cover, quite probably as issued; otherwise substantially pristine inside & out. Dust jacket in very fine condition with only very slight wear & a few tiny chips, gauges & closed tears at edges & corners of front, back cover & spine; moderate browning of blank inner surfaces. Slipcase in very fine condition with only tiny bits of wear at corners & upper back edge; light hand-markings near left bottom edge including reference to limitation made by previous seller or possibly publisher. One of 100 numbered copies signed by William S. Burroughs; additionally inscribed & signed by WSB to Donald L. Kaufman.
