"My dear Henry / I spoke with Tony on the phone a few days ago and he assured me that everything was OK with regards to the Rimbaud illuminations. I can't tell you how ecstatically happy it made me to hear you were giving your approval on all counts! You're a Swedenborgian "Angel" under that gruff exterior, do you know that? And I love you". Bert goes on to discuss the publisher's aim to produce a perfect book sparing nothing to get the job done. He tells Miller that he's down somewhat because his French girl, Cecile has had to fly to Nantes because her dad was ill & that she won't return any time soon so he'll be joining her at the end of June "when I start my summer-long writing /tramping / research adventure in Provence and Rimbaud's Charlesville - it is there that I plan to finish my translation of the third Rimbaud book, the early rhymed poems. . . Right there on the banks of the Meuse where he composed the "Bateau ivre". . . I want to visit Nantes because it is the birthplace of my favorite boyhood writer, Jules Verne but I also want to go to Carnac and Mont St. Michel. Needless to say I'll send you quickie apercus. . . Tony assures me you're in fine shape. Durrell says you are "ecstatic." Toujours parmi les anges, quoi! / Ma Main amie! / Bert" with the original mailing envelope on which Miller has written: "Tony - Please answer his question. Too tired today to answer him .

        IL MALE, il giornale più dirompente della storia della satira italiana (1978-1981) lotto di 92 giornali), Roma, Vari editori, 1978

      - La redazione, ricordano i protagonisti, era un ''autore collettivo''. Uno dello staff metteva l'idea, l'altro il supporto fotografico, un altro disegnava, un ultimo colorava, qualcuno impaginava. Le realizzazioni finali (e la gran necessit? di lasciare vignette ''forti e/o eccessive'' anonime per evitare denuncie), erano "figlie di un reggimento", frutto di sinergie e collaborazioni. In questo senso è stato irripetibile, tutt'altra cosa dal classico disegnatore solitario, unico artefice del proprio lavoro. Ricordiamo qui alcuni dei suoi autori: Angese, Carlo Cagni, Mario Canale, Barbara Cannata, Giovanna Caronia, Francesco Cascioli, Ciro, Forattini, Franco D., Lucio Lanza, Cinzia Leone, Karen (Jacopo Fo), Jiga Melick, Piero Lo Sardo, Angelo Pasquini, Anna-Dora-Marisa le tre sorelle Bandiera, Giuliano, Guglielmo, Marione, Carlo Marulli, Gerardo Orsini, Gian Pietro Parmegiani, Stefano, Enzo Sferra, Simonetta, Tersite (Vincenzo Sparagna), Vincino, Alain Denis, Fanale, Dario Fiori, Sandro Giustibelli, Yves Got, Tom Johnston, Tanino Liberatore, Massimo Mattioli, Franco Moretti, Tony Munzlinger, Andrea Pazienza, Roberto Perini, Reiser, Rochette, Filippo Scozzari, Sergio Saviane, Stefano Tamburini, Roland Topor, Vincino, Wilem, Wolinski, Pino Zac. Alcuni provenivano da quelle che furono le esperienze pilota del "Male", e cioé dai giornali "Cannibale", "l'Avventurista" e "I quaderni del sale", e per molti, in seguito, l'esperienza è proseguita nei suoi diversi figli, "Frigidaire", "Zut", "Cuore", "Zapata", "Boxer", "Il clandestino".

        Shosha [Signed association copy, that of Erwin Leiser]

      Farrar Straus Giroux, New York 1978 - New York: Farrar Strauss Giroux, 1978. First Edition / First Printing. Signed, inscribed, and dated (May 29, 1981) by the author on the ffep to Erwin Leiser. Octavo, 277 pp. Fine copy in a near-fine dustjacket showing a bit of small-scale edgewear. At the time of its release Singer's first novel in six years, Shosha is a love story in typically offbeat Singer style. Originally written in Yiddish as were almost all most of his novels, Shosha's English title is the name of a childhood love of the protagonist. An aspiring writer in 1930's Poland, his career is being given a boost by a visiting American couple, and he's essaying the romancing not only of the American wife but of several other women as well when he again encounters Shosha. Been there, done that, though not in Poland. Erwin Leiser (1923-1996) was a highly-regarded German-born journalist and director of trenchant documentaries both historical and political in character, having especially to do with the Nazis and the holocaust, the latter being a documentary topic for which he may have been the first director. A handsome example. L53n [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Black Nation: Position of the Revolutionary Communist League (M-L-M) on The Afro-American National Question

      [Newark, New Jersey: no publisher. 1978]. Quarto. 57pp. Stapled photomechanically reproduced sheets with printed stapled wrappers. About very good with wear at the extremities, price sticker, and heavy staining to the front and rear wrapper affecting a few interior pages. Amiri Baraka's personal copy Signed on the first page. The Revolutionary Communist League began as the student led African Liberation Support Committee that changed its name to the Congress of African People in 1972 under the leadership of Baraka with a new focus on Black cultural nationalism. The group adopted Maoism in 1976 and changed its name yet again to the Revolutionary Communist League, generating this document penned by Baraka. By 1980 the group merged with the League of Revolutionary Struggle and it appears this copy is Baraka's attempt shortly thereafter to update their positions.The document contains numerous comments, deletions, and additions in Baraka's hand stating with the title that he has partially crossed out and written "LRS (MC)" above the former organization's name. Throughout he has made various emendations: circling obsolete group names and writing "its demise" next to them; putting question marks or "update" next to different sections; adding in long passages or whole paragraphs to expand particular ideas; and with corrections on nearly every page. While we could not definitively identify whether these corrections were ever put into print as a whole, we suspect parts were likely incorporated into Baraka's polemic "RWH on the Black Liberation Movement: Wrong Again!" published in 1980. Rare. OCLC locates three copies of this publication. .
