        Exceptional Typed Letter Signed about "The New Yorker

      North Brooklin, Maine, 1976. unbound. Exceptional content typed letter signed "Katherine" in pencil and with several corrections and a handwritten closing paragraph also in pencil. Written long after she retired, the letter refers in depth to a labor dispute at The New Yorker Magazine and the up-coming vote to unionize. 3 pages, 4to, November 19, 1976, marked "Personal and Private letter," North Brooklin, Maine, to her long-time friend at the New Yorker, Ruth Rogin, in small part: "...My idea of democracy, like yours, includes the right to unionize where it is to the advantage of the staff, but I don't believe it suits THE NEW YORKER...I hope the office agony of taking a vote will soon be over for everyone. As both a stockholder and a former editor, I feel strongly that fair pay to all should come before dividends. Yet I feel just as strongly that unionization in our kind of organization will militate against good pay and generosity to the staff from bottom to top...Few magazines have been so generous as The New Yorker...After unionization...the editors will have no say on pay raises..." Much more great content; she mentions Roger Angell, Saul Steinberg, Bill Shawn, and includes an amusing anecdote about the notorious "tight wad" tendencies of 'dear Hawley Truax'." A rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the most important magazines of the 20th century. Original remittal envelope included. Staple hole on upper left corners. Very good condition. First and longtime editor at the New Yorker Magazine (1925 - 1960), wife of author and fellow editor at the New Yorker E.B. White.

        Le Morte D'Arthur: Printed by William Caxton [Facsimile edition]

      London: The Scolar Press, 1976. First edition thus. One of 50 copies printed on hand-made paper and bound in full leather by The Eddington Bindery, from a total edition of 500 copies. A fine copy, housed in the original cloth slipcase. This facsimile edition was made from the only complete copy of William Caxton's 1485 edition of Le Morte D'Arthur, housed at the Pierpont Morgan Library. With early editions of Malory virtually unobtainable up to the 6th edition of 1634, this facsimile is the preferred text for institutions and other collectors who would strive for Grolier's "One Hundred Books Famous in English Literature" or PMM. & & Malory translated and compiled the legends of Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere, Sir Gawain, and the Knights of the Round Table, using numerous French and English sources. His work was first published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer. It proved immensely popular and became the basis for the countless retellings and adaptations throughout the next five centuries (with a few periods of silence, namely 1634 - 1816). We can think of no other collection of stories that have more fully captured the imagination and passion of the English people than the Arthurian legends. & & "It is the only true English epic; its matter is 'the Matter of England'. The matchless style, the humour, the magnificence, the magic that takes away the breath, combine in a masterpiece of legendary narrative. Each century has produced its own version of the Arthurian tapestry, but Malory's will never be forgotten." (Printing and the Mind of Man, 29).
