        Untitled etching from the Santa Clause portfolio (98/175)

      L'Herne, Paris 1974 - Alexander Calder (1898-1976) Etchings from the Santa Clause Portfolio Limited edition of 175 copies; each signed and numbered in pencil by the artist Published by L'Herne Paris: 1974 Signed Calder, lower right Dimensions: 20 1/4 x 26" E.E. Cummings (1894-1962), an American poet, essayist and playwright, first published his one-act play, Santa Clause, in the Harvard Wake in the spring of 1946. The play was inspired by his reunion with his estranged daughter Nancy, whom was married to Willard Roosevelt, grandson of Theodore Roosevelt. Cummings considered the play Santa Claus, which expressed his belief in the joys of love, his most successful. The allegorical Christmas fantasy recounts the tale of Santa Claus and the sinister character Death, who exchange identities in a cynical scheme to sell shares in a worthless wheel mine. A little girl, whose innocence allows her to see through their deception, finds them out. Remorseful, Santa reveals his true identity, reaffirming his faith in love and giving and reconciles with his estranged family. Alexander Calder illustrated this monumental artist book with nine full-page etchings, whose simplified linear motifs deftly convey the emotional power of the story. Each original etching is signed and number in pencil by Calder.

So I left her immediately and went to live with June -- 'Mona.' And it was through my new wife that I got the courage to make my final decisions and to live by them. she used to say to me, 'Look, give up that job; Start to write.'" A nice association.

Extensive inquiries have failed to locate an alternative copy for reprinting." Each volume typically includes complete information on the organization of the Liberal Party, composition of both Houses of Parliament, the various government departments, a summary of legislation passed the previous year, a riding-by-riding account of the previous general election, or by-elections, including candidates and vote counts, and an enormous amount of financial and budgetary data.

Some browning, but not brittle. Author's three-line signed presentation inscription to António Barahona on verso of front cover. Brief annotation (by Barahona?) in ink on p. 14. ---- FIRST EDITION of these poems about Timor, dated between 11 and 30 June 1974, one of the author's rarest works. It was reprinted in Rio de Janeiro, 2013.Born in London, Cinatti (1915?1986), poet, agronomist, and anthropologist, studied agronomy and meteorology in Lisbon at the Universidade Técnica, and went on to study social anthropology at Oxford University before entering Portuguese government service, first in Timor and later in Lisbon. He spent a good part of his life in Timor, and also spent time in São Tomé e Príncipe, writing about both places in his poems and scientific works. During his active and distinguished literary career, he was founder and co-director of @Cadernos de Poesia, which also published his @Nós não somos dêste mundo as well as works by other aspiring poets, founder and editor of the literary review @Aventura (1942-44), and author of several later poetry collections. His work departs from that of the @presencistas, displaying a marked affinity for the styles and themes of the nineteenth-century Romantic poets.@Provenance: António [Manuel Baptista] Barahona [da Fonseca], Portuguese poet (born Lisbon, 1939), lived for some time in Moçambique, and in Lisbon in the late 1950s belonged to the "Grupo do Café Gelo". Influenced by surrealism, he contributed to the first and second fascicles of @Poesia experimental (1964 and 1966), converting to Islam in 1975 and adopting the name Muhammed Rashid. He has been involved in a number of heated polemics.

        A charming original pen-and-ink sketch, entitled 'The Return with the Woman', caricaturing himself, his great-aunt, Adeline, baroness von Roeder ('Tiz') and her tiny,'rat-like', dog.

      - Approx. 11 x 12cm. A fragment only, torn-out (by Brenan himself),from a letter of his to Dora Carrington, but not posted. On the verso are eight lines in Brenan's hand describing part of the incident, but crossed-out and which differs from the version finally sent (see below). Brenan devotes a chapter to an amusing account of his aunt and her eccentricities in 'Personal Record', 1974. He stayed with her several times in her London flat and was her heir. In the letter eventually sent, dated Framlingham, August 9th, 1921, he records the incident :- A dreary evening led to a still drearier dinner at the Pall Mall Restaurant. I was not hungry and took only the hors d'oeuvres & the ice. I did not even TRY to conceal my anger, boredom and dismay. She thought I looked ill and suggested we should walk back across the park, to get the night air and save 1/6d taxi fare. We did this, and she tripped along behind me, like the mummy of some ancient Pharonic jade - half skeleton, half beetle, half clock-work, half-human and wholly vampire - with her face all painted and shrivelled,long dirt-marks under her eyes (she never washes), a little rat-like dog rolled-up in red flannel under her arm [but in the sketch the dog is walking] a long swishing silk skirt below, and on her head a black Mrs. Siddons hat.

        [7" vinyl record]: Hey Joe (Version) [and] Piss Factory

      [New York]: Mer Records. 1974. Original 7" vinyl 45 RPM record. Fine in modestly age-toned, about fine plain white sleeve as issued, in the original mailing envelope. Signed by Patti Smith on the white sleeve. Also included is a small, age-toned clipping from The Village Voice advertising a contemporary performance by Smith at Max's Kansas City, listing the book and record stores where this record could be purchased, and noting that it could be purchased directly for $2.50 from Sunburst Industries. Patti Smith's first vinyl single, "Hey Joe" and "Piss Factory" on the B side, produced by Lenny Kaye for Robert Mapplethorpe. The record, mailer, and clipping are housed in (and easily removable from) an acrylic stand. An exceptionally uncommon record, the original mailer is rare. This copy is addressed to R.W. Bayley in Forest Knolls, California, with the return address of The WARTOKE Concern in New York (listing the same Broadway address as Sunburst Industries), and postmarked September 26, 1974. The recipient, Roberta Bayley, is a photographer who created one of the most important photographic records of the punk scene as it germinated in New York City, and she was also the co-author (with Victor Bockris) of the first biography of Patti Smith (Patti Smith. New York: Simon & Schuster 1999). The clipping is pictured in the biography. Her iconic photographs (including the photo that graced the jacket of the first Ramones album) helped define the New York punk aesthetic. Her reminiscences in Leg McNeil and Gillian McCain's Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, possibly the best single volume source of the early history of punk, were central to the book. .

        Fifty-Two Pickup

      Delacorte Press, New York 1974 - [1974]. Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Gray boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. Red endpapers. 254pps. Stated First Printing. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is very mildly rubbed and has a thin and unobtrusive scratch in the front flap; the original price (6.95) is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. ".What Harry Mitchell least expected, as he entered the darkened room, was the perverted version of 'This is Your Life' on a home movie screen, starring pillar of the community Harry Mitchell and the beautiful, golden-haired Cini, produced and presented by a trio of psychopaths and for sale at the new low price of $150,000, payable now. Otherwise worldwide distribution. What the unholy three -- the dealer in porno flicks, the trigger-happy coke head, the vodka-swilling boss of the nude model joint -- least expected was a mark who'd come on strong. He was not the straight-A stiff he had looked like at first but a tenacious dude with a spine like steel. When they threw their punch -- the shattering second home movie with its depraved, entangling climax -- he didn't even crumble. For Harry Mitchell was a tough, selfmade man. He had gone from assembly line to ownership of a multimillion dollar company, had a wife and children he loved, and had a good reputation, and he was not about to lose everything to three psycho punks with their blackmail scheme. Not even after that scheme turned to murder." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books.
