        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.

        Moise and the World of Reason

      Simon and Schuster, New York 1975 - First edition. Fine in a slightly age-toned, else fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Williams to actress Ruth Ford: "To Ruth with my heart on my sleeve. Love, Tennessee." In Williams' *Memoirs* he refers to Ford as "the wise and lovely actress, Ruth Ford, who seems to have been born with more worldly wisdom than I have accumulated even at this point in life." Ford, the Mississippi-born sister of surrealist author Charles Henri Ford, was a beautiful model and actress, first in Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, and later in films and theater. Notably, she starred on Broadway in Jean Paul Sartre's *No Exit* in 1946, under the direction of John Huston (the last of five Broadway plays he directed). Her apartment in the Dakota became a salon for authors such as Williams, Edward Albee, Terrence McNally, and Truman Capote. A chance encounter between Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents in her Manhattan living room led to their collaboration, with her Dakota-neighbor Leonard Bernstein, on *West Side Story*. Similarly, she brought together Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight to create the celebrated stories of *Eloise*, the little girl who lived at the Plaza.Ford is well known also for her long friendship with William Faulkner, which began with her dating his brother Dean in the early 1930s. Faulkner was openly smitten with Ford for many years. He wrote his experimental 1951 title *Requiem for a Nun*, a sequel to his early and controversial novel *Sanctuary*, with her in mind. He further declared, to the consternation of his agent and publisher, that it was her dramatic property (*Requiem for a Nun* was a mixture of stage play and novel). Stage production of the title stalled for years, partly because Faulkner's experimental drama did not lend itself to live theatre, and partly because the producers were unsure of Ford's suitability. Faulkner was adamant that it was her dramatic property, and in 1959 she adapted the play herself and starred in its London production opposite her second husband, Zachary Scott. Her stage version received enthusiastic reviews in both London and New York, but did not fare so well with audiences and closed after a short run on Broadway. Ford continued to act on both stage and screen well into the 1980s. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 98. A wonderful inscription and nice 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]
