      New York, [6 October 1981]. Letter. Normal creases from mailing. Near Fine with wonderful content. Two pages with envelope on Parker Meridien Hotel letterhead to Fred Martin of New Directions. In part: "Very regrettably Mitch Douglas didn't let you know that I was not releasing 'Now the Cats with Jewelled Claws' but holding it back for rewrites of a considerable nature and all quite essential. This play was written while I was quite ill in the sixties and the fact is embarrassingly [sic] evident in the text, especially as I read it in print. I'm afraid that everything about my professional relationship with Douglas was regrettable.... I am a slow and consientious [sic] writer if permitted to be. Not an electric rabbit at a dog race. Of course these misapprehensions are finally set right. I've done two verysions [sic] of 'Clothes' since the one thrown with such cavalier haste onto Broadway. SIGNED as "Tennessee." In holograph: "Please remember me to Jay [James Laughlin, founder of New Directions] who introduced me to the 'world of Letters.' I never want him to be ashamed of a work of mine that bears the N.D. imprimateur [sic]." And in another color ink and likely added at the last minute: "P.P.S. There is also a now definitive "Red Devil Battery Sign"-- a controversial but major work.

Je viens de lire vos poèmes, avec le même plaisir, il me semble, que vous avez eu à les écrire. La poésie est un genre" que je ne connais pas bien, et qui me semble souvent étrange, sinon étranger. Ici, au contraire, j'ai eu l'impression que vous disiez, sur un mode musical, des choses qui n'auraient pu être dites autrement." En post-scriptum, il indique qu'il transmet le manuscrit à Gallimard, car il pense que ces poèmes "pourraient être goûtés de quelqu'un comme Jean Grosjean"..

Needless to say, you understand this book - and before you put me out of business with your own writing, thanks for helping bring this story to life . . . from whence it came. Isn't this great? Your friend, Cameron P.s. No checks."

A wonderful association and a warm, early inscription. Near Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket.

        A Leaf from the Letters of St. Jerome First Printed by Sixtus Reissinger, Rome, C.1466 - 1467 [Leaf Book]

      Los Angeles and London: Zeitlin & Ver Brugge - H.M. Fletcher 1981, edition limited to 300 copies. () [vi], 30pp. Fine. Folio. Quarter vellum over marbled boards. Vellum spine label with gilt title. Lightest of shelfwear to corners. The original leaf is contained in a paper folder bound before the half-title. The leaf has some age toning and old water damage, but is quite striking, printed in two columns with very wide margins. Limited to 300 numbered copies, this being #27. An attractive, letter-press book containing a leaf from St. Jerome's Epistolae Hieronymi, likely one of the first few, if not the very first, book printed in Rome. The evidence, collected and explained herein, indicated that Epistolae Hieronymi was printed in 1466, shortly after Reissinger and another printing house, Sweynheim and Pannartz, established their presses. The leaf offered her represents an excellent example of a very early incunable and is from the editio princeps of the Letters of St. Jerome, one of the greatest collections of literary letters in the Western canon. (Dispersed and Disbound 170).
