Annie Dillard's bookplate beneath the inscription. Fine in a very good dust jacket. An important association copy linking these two naturalist writers. Barry Holstun Lopez is a writer whose work is known for its humanitarian and environmental concerns. He won the National Book Award for Nonfiction for Arctic Dreams (1986) and was a National Book Award finalist for his Of Wolves and Men (1978). The San Francisco Chronicle rightly described Lopez Lopez as "the nation's premier nature writer." His focus is twofold. His non-fiction examines the relationship between human culture and the physical domain, while in his fiction addresses issues of intimacy and ethics. Lopez' awards are as rich as his themes. He has won, for instance, the Award in Literature, American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Lannan Literary Award, the Guggenheim Fellowship, and the John Burroughs Medal.

        Typed Letter Signed and Annotated; AND: Two Signed Original Letters of Contract appointing Joan Daves as Porter's Literary Agent; AND: a Short Autograph Note Signed from Katherine Anne Porter to her Literary Agent Joan Daves [Flowering Judas; The Collected Essays and Occasional Writings]

      College Park, Maryland and New York: Katherine Anne Porter, 1976. First edition. Fine. A remarkable TYPED LETTER ANNOTATED and SIGNED from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Katherine Anne Porter to her new Literary Agent Joan Daves, TOGETHER WITH: two ORIGINAL CONTRACTS FOR LITERARY REPRESENTATION SIGNED BY KATHERINE ANNE PORTER AND BY JOAN DAVES, TOGETHER WITH: a short PERSONAL AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED FROM KATHERINE ANNE PORTER TO JOAN DAVES, each in Fine condition but with a paper clip rust stain to the short note, a clean impression from the paperclip on the other documents, and expected fold lines to the letter and Contracts for mailing; A TOTAL OF FOUR ORIGINAL KATHERINE ANNE PORTER related to IMPORTANT LITERARY MATTERS. Dated June 23, 1976 and sent from Porter's apartment in College Park, Maryland, the letter begins: "Dear Joan: // Your packet of letters dated the first day of / summer, 1976 arrived this morning and Bill and I have / worked our way through it going around pulling straws / out of this fascinating haystack." Porter goes on to discuss a contract with Delacorte Press/Seymour Lawrence for her letters and those of Glenway Wescott which has been canceled because Wescott was impossible to work with on the project. Noting that she consequently owes Delacorte Press/Seymour Lawrence $15,000 [which we presume was an advance paid by the Publisher to Porter], she states that Barrett Prettyman [presumably noted attorney Barrett Prettyman, Jr.] has arranged for that sum to "be paid out of my estate after my death", a statement she has underlined and adjacent to which she has noted, in her hand, "GW's and mine" -- with "GW" referring, of course, to Glenway Westcott. Porter goes on to discuss the possible publication of letters to and from her, including "some extremely interesting letters with friends who are now dead, especially between Robert McAlmon and me over a good number of years and of course simply bales of letters from friends through our lives, some living some dead. Porter comments on the need for permission to publish letters from others to her, providing lines in the margin for emphasis. She concludes this portion of her letter with "This is to me a rather important thing and I should like to talk it over with you and show you such material as I have and take your advice as to whether it is a good thing to do. Let's take that up a little later." In the second page of her letter, Porter continues to discuss Literary matters. She begins: "Speaking of editors, my experience has taught me that I do not need an editor in anything I am publishing [emphasizing this assertion with marginal lines]. They edit obviously with the intent to open the jugular and I could give you a history that I thing would chill your blood, beginning with the first printing of my collection of stories FLOWERING JUDAS and ending with this piece of impudence you have seen in the Delacorte Press/Seymour Lawrence shambles." Porter states that she and other authors need only "...a proof reader who knows the English language and who knows how to spell and who does not try to correct my French or Spanish or German or even my English. I have long pondered an essay on this subject. If you think it would sell, let me know and I could toss it off as a letter to a friend." This last sentence has been underlined by Porter who goes on to discuss authors who "...sit with their hair on end correcting the idiotic errors in every book they publish. I often wonder what that galaxy of morons who edited my ESSAYS had in mind and what they did to see my unfortunate book on its way....I hope I am not being too vehement about this but I cannot otherwise convey to you how deeply I object to these editors activities any time, from any source, except at times advice from you if you will allow me to ask for it." Porter concludes that she has signed the author/agent agreement, sends it back, and that she is "...very much interested in having you care for all of my affairs and would appreciate your explaining to me your possible involvement with existing contracts made directly by me with my publishers. Can you arrange for better conditions." Porter ends her letter stating that she is sending a personal note to Daves and signs the letter "Katherine Anne", adding a brief annotation to her signature. Attached to the letter are two originals of the single-page Agency Agreement appointing Daves "to handle the marketing throughout the world of all my literary rights including but not limited to publishing, motion pictures, stage, radio, television, recording rights, and generally to advise me professionally...." each being signed by Daves and by Porter, with Porter adding her address and Social Security Number in her own hand. A short note, presumably the one to which Porter referred, is written on a piece of paper measuring approximately 4" x 3 1/4" and reads" "23 June 1976 - Summer is here! // Dear Joan - // Thank you for the / __ check - // I'll be delighted if there / is a possibility of my / reading my stories - I wish I / could do a collection of them! // Your visit here a delightful / memory - Too short though! // affection Katherine Anne". [Joan Daves was a Literary Agent of great note and was much respected in the trade, serving as agent for a number of important authors including Willie Morris, Kathryn Porter, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others.] A wonderful collection of Katherine Porter items, full of Literary matters and expressing her views related to editors and other publishing matters and discussing potential publishing ventures and with ANNOTATIONS BY PORTER TO HERE LETTER AND A TOTAL OF FOUR ORIGINAL KATHERINE ANNE PORTER SIGNATURES. RARE INDEED.

The spectacle of George Grizzard fencing up and down those stairs was as depressing as anything the theater has offered in years-- I'm sure that both George Kaufman and Freddie March revolved in their graves."

        La pêche à la baleine *

      Éditions Soguène, Kochi 12.1976. - En feuilles sous étui bordé 20 x 24, chemise pleine toile titrée au dos en rouge et noir, motif estampé (eaux-fortes imprimées sur tissus selon l'auteur) au premier plat d'icelle, doublée de vergé bleuté, couverture rempliée imprimée (en offset avec le texte français en majuscules car il ne fut point trouvé de police de caractères minuscules avec accents) . On a déjà du conter cette histoire; le futur artiste-éditeur oisif se la coulait douce (hormis de 9 à 21 heures dans une école de langues - mais pas tous les jours) au Japon et dans un volume de poèmes de Prévert avait croqué quelques vagues dessins en marge de "La Pêche"; son maître de stage, Minoru Yokota, éditeur de Soguène dans son atelier haut perché, lui tint à peu près ce language:? Et si vous en faisiez un livre, honorable disciple ?L'artisan genevois ayant la bougeotte, il voguera ultérieurement sous le label des éditions nomades.La version japoniaise et la postfarce sont de Fuminari Hirata.Notre exemplaire est enrichi de 11 cuivres originaux, d'un cliché de titre & d'une signature au pinceau que ne mentionne pas le collophon, comme il passe sous silence celles figurant sous les 14 compositions gravées à l'eau-forte de ce petit bijou initial d'une rare fraîcheur, jamais égalée dans la production future de Thierry Bourquin, hormis peut-être pour "Le Pélican" de Desnos, c'est l'enfant qui subsiste en lui sans doute qui en tire le meilleur. Première édition séparée bilingue. L'un des 8 exemplaire hors commerce lettrés & ainsi marqués, outre 35 numérotés et 7 épreuves d'artiste lettrées, tous sur BFK de Rives.

        Chronicles of Bustos Domecq [Signed]

      New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1976. First edition. A Very Good copy of the first US edition, first printing (tiny nick to top edge of the front board, modest wear to spine ends, slight fading to board extremities), in a Very Good + dust jacket (slight edge wear, tiny chip at each corner of the spine head, age toning to flap and verso extremities, prior seller's pencil notes to front free endpaper and half-title), SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES on the half title accompanied by two perpendicular lines. The book presents itself as a series of critical essays by the title character whose name is a joint pseudonym of Borges and Bioy-Casares. Borges wrote numerous literary forgeries, including reviews of the nonexistent writings of others. Borges and Bioy-Casares wrote several collaborative works using the name H. Bustos Domecq (Honorio Bustos Domecq) and Bustos Domecq is presented as the author of "Chronicles of Bustos Domecq" even though the real authors are named on the book's dust jacket and cover. The two men, writing together, produced a different voice than either man produced writing alone. Although he was considered by many to be one of the Twentieth Century's greatest authors, Borges never won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his work, a fact which continually distressed him. As he stated: "Not granting me the Nobel Prize has become a Scandinavian tradition; since I was born they have not been granting it to me." Signed copies of the book offered here are quite scarce to the market. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY JOSE LUIS BORGES. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
