        In Patagonia [Hardcover Advance Proof Copy]

      London/NY: Jonathan Cape/Summit. 1977/1978. A hardcover advance proof copy of the American edition of Chatwin's first book, created from a first British edition, with the addition of a U.S. proof dust jacket, featuring quotes from British publications (including Paul Theroux, writing for the London Times). The British trade edition has had its free endpages excised and pasted over the pictorial pastedowns; and the photographs that graced the text of the British edition have also been excised, in keeping with the appearance of the American edition. This copy was obviously sent out and used for review: reviewer's marks and comments in text, and the blank jacket flaps have been filled with the reviewer's notes. The book, apart from the intended excisions and notes, is fine; the proof jacket (again, apart from the reviewer notes), is spine and edge-sunned, with the title and author handwritten on the spine, largely faded; overall near fine. An uncommon issue, presumably done prior to the issuance of an American proof copy and different from the U.K. first edition in ways that parallel the eventual U.S. edition (and U.S. proof). First Edition. Hardcover.

        Song of Solomon.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1977. First edition of the author's third book. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by Toni Morrison on the title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear. A very nice example. "A stunningly beautiful book . . . I would call the book poetry, but that would seem to be denying its considerable power as a story. Whatever name you give it, it's full of magnificent people, each of them complex and multilayered, even the narrowest of them narrow in extravagant ways" (Anne Tyler).

        The Butterfly's Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast

      Anne and David Bromer, (Watertown, MA) 1977 - (24)pp. The text is printed on Japanese paper with ornamentation in green. Wood engravings by Sarah Chamberlain, as her first miniature book commission. This is the first miniature book published by the Bromers. Midori Kunikata-Cockram captures the whimsical nature of the text, which was the first English poem for children intended for sheer amusement. The front and rear boards are covered with parchment, on which the artist has hand-drawn the insects and small animals attending the feast amongst a pattern of vines and flowers in crimson ink. Delicate onlays of black morocco create the silhouette of a vine climbing up the book's burgundy morocco spine. Inside, endpapers printed with oak leaves and cut-out leaves with hand-drawn shading in pastel reference the oak tree in the poem, beneath which the revels were held. Housed in a suede-lined box, the exterior of which is covered with paper hand-tooled in a foliate pattern and gilt-titled to the morocco spine. A parchment tab painted with a butterfly on one side and a grasshopper on the reverse, helps to lift the book out of the box. With the binder's blind-stamped mark to the penultimate endleaf and signed by Chamberlain to the colophon. Extremely fine. (2 1/2 by 2 1/8; 63x53mm). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Time of Gifts, Between the Woods and the Water, The Broken Road.

      John Murray,, London, 1977 - 3 volumes (complete set). London, John Murray, 1977. Octavo. Pagination: (Time of Gifts) [frontispiece] [8], 291, [1] pages / (Woods and Water) [10], 248 pages / (Broken Road) xxii, 362 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjackets. The three volumes in first edition of Patrick Leigh Fermor's account of his epic walk to Constantinople, now seen as one of the great works of travel literature in the language. All three books are first editions in their jackets, the first volume near fine in blue publisher's boards, without ownership inscriptions to the book. The jacket is very good with a bright front panel showing John Craxton's evocative central European design, some fading to the orange background on the spine and foxing to the rear blue panel. Between the Woods and the Water is near fine in a very good jacket which has been price clipped. The Broken Road is fine in a fine jacket with a small 2013 ownership signature on the first endpaper. It was Patrick Leigh Fermor's good fortune to set out on his great adventure in the early nineteen thirties before Nazism and the Second World War changed the Europe for ever, but to wait forty years before writing the first two volumes of his luminous narrative. His account of German beer cellars, of Prague under snow and love in Vienna, all occurring while the shadow of Nazism looms, bears comparison with Chatwin, Robert Byron and the best twentieth century writers in any genre. Sir Patrick Michael Leigh Fermor, DSO, OBE (11 February 1915 – 10 June 2011), also known as Paddy Fermor, was a British author, scholar and soldier who played a prominent role behind the lines in the Cretan resistance during the Second World War. He was widely regarded as Britain's greatest living travel writer during his lifetime, based on books such as A Time of Gifts (1977). A BBC journalist once described him as "a cross between Indiana Jones, James Bond and Graham Greene." The Patrick Leigh Fermor Society was formed in 2014. At the age of 18, Leigh Fermor decided to walk the length of Europe, from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople. He set off on 8 December 1933, less than a year after Hitler had come to power in Germany, with a few clothes, several letters of introduction, the Oxford Book of English Verse and a volume of Horace's Odes. He slept in barns and shepherds' huts, but also was invited by landed gentry and aristocracy into the country houses of Central Europe. He experienced hospitality in many monasteries along the way. Two of his later travel books, A Time of Gifts (1977) and Between the Woods and the Water (1986), were about this journey. A book on the final part of his journey was unfinished at the time of Leigh Fermor's death, but was published as The Broken Road: Travels from Bulgaria to Mount Athos in September 2013 by John Murray. The book draws on Leigh Fermor's diary at the time and on an early draft he wrote in the 1960s. Leigh Fermor arrived in Constantinople on 1 January 1935, then continued to travel around Greece. In March, he was involved in the campaign of royalist forces in Macedonia against an attempted Republican revolt. In Athens, he met Balasha Cantacuzène (Balasa Cantacuzino), a Romanian Phanariote noblewoman, with whom he fell in love. They shared an old watermill outside the city looking out towards Poros, where she painted and he wrote. They moved on to Baleni, Gala?i, the Cantacuzène house in Moldavia, where they were living at the outbreak of the Second World War.

        The Variorum Edition of the Poems of W. B. Yeats.

      New York: Macmillan Publishing Co. Inc.,, 1977. Edited by Peter Allt and Russell K. Alspach. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Two letters to Hill laid in: autograph letter signed with a few instances of bleeding to ink; typed letter signed, fine; both gently creased where folded. A very good copy in the lightly rubbed dust jacket a touch nicked and creased at spine-ends. Seventh edition. Geoffrey Hill's copy, with his ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. A superb association, the question of Yeatsian influences on Hill having provoked one of more memorable literary controversies of recent years when Tom Paulin's unfavourable review of Geoffrey Hill: Essays on his Work (LRB vol. 7 no. 6, 4 April 1985) garnered Craig Raine's rejoinder, "No sooner has the quaking poem entered his study than he [Paulin] has it by the ear and is laying into it for stealing from Yeats major"; thirty years later, though, Hill would affirm: "I'd like to see a poetry which is highly architectonic and yet sounds spontaneous, as in Yeats. There's always this sense of massive architectural control in Yeats, but out of it burst these spontaneous, ragged phrases. That's what poetry should be like" (interview with Geoffrey Hill, Isis Magazine, April 27 2015, online). A highly evocative copy richly complemented by two contrasting letters addressed to Hill, each illuminating a different side to the poet's life. Firstly an autograph letter signed from Peter Walker, Bishop of Ely, with his personal letterhead, dated 7 April 1984, thanks Hill for "your most generous present of your The Lords of Limit … in what has been the most difficult year since I have been a bishop, your own poetry has been a real ray of light. It has been a discovery, and it has the marvellous quality of not yielding everything at once! Your visual images do more for me than anyone else's writing - but of course it is far more than that". Walker died in 2010, his Telegraph obituary noting that "soon after his arrival [in Ely] it became apparent that the cathedral ?- the great "Ship of the Fens" ?- was in urgent need of extensive repair and conservation. Before long there were to be problems of a different sort in the Close which led to the departure of the Dean under a cloud, and in 1984 Walker persuaded the Crown to appoint the Archdeacon of Wisbech, William Patterson, to the deanery to take things in hand". More quotidian concerns are suggested by David McDuff's typed letter signed, dated 17th June 1982 and proposing on behalf of Peter Jay of the Anvil Press to publish a pamphlet of Hill's poetry: "Each year Anvil offers those participating in its subscription scheme a free copy of a limited edition, usually signed, of a specially published pamphlet of poems by a well-known poet … Peter asked me to tell you that William Cookson informed him recently that you might have some new poems which might be suitable for such a publication": a request to which Hill does not appear to have given his assent.

I'm so happy to see you sane and healthy and actually as I remember you. With love and best wishes Mickey (aka Michael) Herr." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Praised by John Le Carre as "the best book I have ever read on men and war in our time, Herr's vision of combat stands at the core of two seminal Vietnam films: Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979), with its narration by Herr, and Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987), whose screenplay earned Herr an Oscar nomination.

Each of the 11 titles are represented by two copies; the copy number "1" or copy letter "A" of the smallest limitation; and the copy number "1" of the larger limitation; the lone exception is Mites, a miniature book, which is lacking the smaller limited but instead includes a Presentation Copy facetiously Signed "Norman Mailer" by Updike.

        A Judgement in Stone.

      London: Hutchinson, 1977. First edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the title page, who has added the opening line as follows, "Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she count not read or write. Ruth Rendell." Fine in a fine dust jacket. On Valentine's Day, four members of the Coverdale family--George, Jacqueline, Melinda and Giles--were murdered in the space of 15 minutes. Their housekeeper, Eunice Parchman, shot them, one by one, in the blue light of a televised performance of Don Giovanni. When Detective Chief Superintendent William Vetch arrests Miss Parchman two weeks later, he discovers a second tragedy: the key to the Valentine's Day massacre hidden within a private humiliation Eunice Parchman has guarded all her life. "Rendell writes with such elegance and restraint, with such literary voice and an insightful mind, that she transcends the mystery genre and achieves something almost sublime" (Los Angeles Times). The novel was filmed twice: The Housekeeper starred Rita Tushingham as the illiterate maid, and La Cérémonie, directed by Claude Chabrol, where Sandrine Bonnaire played the role.
