        An Archive of 20th Century Sado-Masochism: Letters to The Black Knight (1975-1983)

      [Northampton, Massachusetts]. (1975-1983). A remarkable collection of nearly 30 love letters (including five photographs) sent by a Baptist minister from Massachusetts to his elder lover: "The Black Knight." The letters document in graphic and loving detail illustrated their illicit Sado-Masochistic affair that began in the spring of 1975 and continued through to the spring of 1982. All but one has the original mailing envelope, near fine. Most of the letters are handwritten in the pastor's attractive calligraphic hand, including two elaborately illustrated by him. All are well-written, indicative of a highly educated man from an established Dutch-American family, and in nearly all of the letters he writes with unconstrained passion of his insatiable love, spiritual and physical, and of his desperate need to be sexually enslaved and brutalized by his "Almighty Regent ... my Black Knight of infamous mystic stirrings." Included are two early albumen prints (family portraits), and three contemporary color photographs taken at the height of their affair, showing the pastor's Church, the pastor and the elderly Black Knight, and the Black Knight seated in his apartment. As it appears likely that the pastor was married at the time of the affair (he fathered children, and played an active leadership role in The American Baptist Churches of Massachusetts throughout his 35-year ministry), the names of both men have been withheld. .

      1975. 1975 - Art depicts two Indian boys riding on a horse in front of three Indian teepees with people going about their work and two automobiles parked to one side of a tent. The work is signed by Fellows with his familiar Cowboy Artists of America insignia just below his signature. "Born in Ponca City, Oklahoma, Fred Fellows lived his early years exposed to the 101 Ranch and the culture of the Otoe and Osage Native Americans.At age nine his family joined the tail-end of the Okie exodus that followed the dust bowl trail to California but each year Fred returned to Oklahoma where he spent summers with his grandparents in their art-filled home. His grandfather a celebrated civil industrial engineer in Ponca City would take his family frequently to nearby museums. Fred was awe struck by Bryant Bakers Pioneer Woman monument in Ponca City. Although he did not realize it then, Fred’s fate as a future artist had been cast. He had an active imagination and a God given talent for drawing." Fellows was elected into membership in the Cowboy Artists of America in 1968 and in 1997 was elected president of the Cowboy Artists of America. By 2003, he had presided over the organization twice. His paintings and sculptures have been featured in many magazines throughout the country, among them Arizona Highways, Western Horseman, Newsweek, and Southwest Art and Architecture Digest. He has won many awards for his artwork including several from the CAA including Gold Medal for Most Popular Work in 1976, Silver Medal for Sculpture in 1991-1995, and Best of Show in 1991. He was honored to have had a retrospective at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2002. This original black and white ink sketch is matted and protected by a transparent shrinkwrap film. Fine.

        In Praise of Darkness [Signed by Borges and by di Giovanni] [Elogio de la Sombra; Firmado por Borges y por di Giovanni]

      London: Allen Lane, 1975. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first edition, first printing (slight touch of pushing to the spine tail, slight gap between the spine head and the closed page block), in a Near Fine dust jacket (quite light rubbing to the edges, tiny closed tear to the front panel's upper edge, small wrinkle and tiny closed tear to the front panel's upper right corner), SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES WITH HIS FULL SIGNATURE AND TWO-LINE DRAWING, AND SIGNED BY THE TRANSLATOR NORMAN THOMAS DI GIOVANNI, on the half-title; a collection of Poems and short Prose pieces each of which is presented both in English and in Spanish and which, when published, was the first collection of Poems written by Borges in the then-prior 45 years with a book in mind. A founder, and principal practitioner, of postmodernist literature who saw himself as being primarily a Poet, Jorge Luis Borges and his work exerted a strong effect on Literature. In his New York Times review of "In Praise of Darkness", American poet, memoirist, translator, Hispanist, and comparatist Willis Barnstone stated: "This latest book by Borges is unified and dominated by darkness and sight, with often an ecclesiastic note as he recreates Heraclitus or the Apostle John or fragments from an apocryphal gospel. Borges is blind and therefore sees everywhere. Yet his is not an Isaiahan vision of heaven and destruction, and when he speaks through biblical figures it is as if he were talking to an old Argentine friend over a cup of maté. Indeed, he slips through historical and imaginary time periods in such a way as to prove that man is always man, always alone, caught in the beast of his body, the labyrinth, while living out the dream or illusion of a vision beyond the labyrinth." Of this translation, Barnstone noted: "The translation of the book is by Norman Thomas di Giovanni in collaboration with the author (except for one poem translated by John Updike). As in other skillful translations by this team, one cannot really speak of loss but of transformation. Borges's fiction and poems work equally well in Spanish and English, and the reader need not fear disparities." Copies of the book in English translation are surprisingly uncommon. Signed copies of the book, especially signed by both the Author and Translator, are as scarce as hen's teeth. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES WITH HIS FULL SIGNATURE AND TWO-LINE DRAWING, AND SIGNED BY THE TRANSLATOR NORMAN THOMAS DI GIOVANNI. QUITE SCARCE TO RARE.

        Legs

      New York: Coward, McCann & Geoghegan (1975). Uncorrected proof. A couple of small smudges or spots on the wrappers, else just about fine. Ownership Signature of Hunter S. Thompson on the front blank. Typed Letter Signed from Senior Editor Peggy Brooks to Thompson sending the proof and soliciting a blurb from him. Ultimately the book appeared with blurbs from Alison Lurie and Doris Grumbach, with nary a word from Thompson as near as we can tell, although he obviously saw fit to write his name in it. Kennedy and Thompson met in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1960 and became lifelong friends after a series of acidic letter between the pair resulting from Kennedy's rejection of Thompson, who had applied for a position at the English-language newspaper where Kennedy was managing editor. Thompson turned his time as a young writer struggling in San Juan into his first novel, The Rum Diary, which was written in the early 1960's but not published until 1998. The first book in Kennedy's celebrated Albany cycle, with a notable association.

      Milano; Franco Sciardelli, 1975 - First edition, LIMITED EDITION #29 of 50 copies in a total edition of 60 copies. Folio, 34pp., illustrated with 7 original acqueforti (Etchings) by Bepi Romagnoni. SIGNED BY BOTH SANESI & ROMAGNONI.Text in Italian." Roberto Sanesi, was one of the most remarkable Italian writers of his generation. A highly accomplished and prolific poet, he was capable of working in a great variety of metrical forms, and was a master of free verse. His poetry, always imbued with a certain intellectuality, ranged extensively from the confessional and anecdotal to the philosophical and metaphysical, and he could shift register with extraordinary skill, from the lyrical to the factual to the speculative, within the bound of a single poem. In this respect he had learned much from TS Eliot and Ezra Pound, whose formal diversities and virtuoso uses of poetic impersonality he adapted with great originality to his own purposes in Italian. Sanesi was also a major translator of English and American poetry, making available for the first time much of the historical and modernist canons of British, Irish and American verse. He directed Italian versions of plays by Shakespeare, Marlowe and Eliot, and wrote and translated libretti for operatic productions, including Benjamin Britten's The Turn Of The Screw. A sensitive, respected and enthusiastic art critic, he was greatly loved by those whose work he championed. He created his own form of quick and fanciful pictorial calligraphy, and exhibited and published it with great success. He was also a gifted teacher and broadcaster. " Very scarce. A fine copy in publishers original case. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
