        American Primitive

      Boston: Little, Brown, 1983. First edition of the poet's Pulitzer Prize-winning collection. Octavo, original green cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by the author on the title page. Mary Oliver was described by The New York Times as "far and away, [America's] best-selling poet." She has won both the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and the National Book Award in 1992. Oliver's poetry has been called an "indefatigable guide to the natural world, particularly to its lesser-known aspects" (Kumin, 1993). "Visionary as Emerson [… she is] among the few American poets who can describe and transmit ecstasy, while retaining a practical awareness of the world as one of predators and prey," reviewed The Nation. Holly Prado of Los Angeles Times Book Review noted that Oliver's work "touches a vitality in the familiar that invests it with a fresh intensity.

        Deux lettres autographes et une tapuscrite signées *

      Paris, entre le 24.12.1979 et le 8.3.1983. - 3 feuillets, à l'adresse de la Rue Verneuil gaufrée sur la missive inaugurale, imprimée en typographie sur le deuxième courrier et manuscrite sur l'ultime, enveloppes adressées des deux derniers jointes. Par ces trois bonnes lettres, répondant à diverses demandes concernant Charles-Albert Cingria, Dubuffet se situe face à l'écrivain, de près de 20 ans son aîné, avec lequel il eut des rapports intermittents dès l'âge de 18 ans jusqu'à sa mort. Il y évoque à la fois des affinités de sympathie et des divergences de sensibilité créative, lui-même tournant le dos aux traditions auxquelles Charles-Albert semblait tant attaché; aussi éprouve-t-il quelques difficulté à imaginer comment s'associer aux manifestations d'hommage pour lesquelles on le sollicite.Il déplore d'autre part la perte d'une correspondance nourrie et fleurie, entretenue avec l'écrivain. Le mot de la fin félicite le professeur qui fut l'un des collaborateurs de l'exposition du centenaire à Berne dont le catalogue (envoyé à Dubuffet qui ornera la couverture de la seconde version de cette brochure à l'occasion du déplacement de la manifestation à la Bibliothèque Nationale Française un an après) reste une référence incontournable.Petit ensemble instructif et amusant.

        ARCHIVE OF LETTERS: 21 pages

      1983 - 1990. Letters. Folds from mailing. Near Fine. Superb archive of seven letters from the author of ANGELA'S ASHES to R'Lene Dahlberg, fellow teacher at Stuyvesant High School, friend, wife of author Edward Dahlberg, and muse. Mostly chatty correspondence, all but two pages handwritten by McCourt, complete with hand-addressed envelopes and mostly written in New York City. In one letter McCourt describes being at Rockaway Beach with his daughter Maggie who is searching for her lost hamster with a friend: "The little bugger won't come out. I've tempted him with everything from carrots to watercress. I've made assorted seductive noises. I've exposed mineself. I've even promised him a night out with a hamsteress. To no avail. Maggie & Clare are less interested in hamsters than in boys. It's all boys now. Boys, boys, boys. I'll break her face. She checks herself out in the mirror by the hour. I told her cut it out. She [sic] wearing out the mirror. Also, I'm getting an education in teeny bop mating habits and teeny bop music. Pubescence is a pain in the arse." In the same letter he describes an encounter with "a maiden" who "had her way with me on the pitcher's mound in the local baseball field. She was a Catholic, too, and told me I was much better than a state of grace. You could always regain your state of grace, she said, but the way I was drinking she decided to get me while she could before I became a shadow of my former self. Does this make sense to you? I'll clean it all up in the novel I'm writing called IN THE FLESH." McCourt also discusses the IRA, his divorce from Alberta, his tour with his brother Malachi and the rave reviews they were getting, how much he likes Chicago, teaching, etc. In one letter he gives a list of saints. All letters are SIGNED "Frank," with one SIGNED "Frank, son of Angela." Also included is a handwritten note by R'Lene Dahlberg describing her relationship to McCourt which, by all accounts, seems to have cooled dramatically upon the publication of the Pulitzer Prize winning ANGELA'S ASHES. McCourt admired Edward Dahlberg's superb autobiography BECAUSE I WAS FLESH and modeled his own ANGELA'S ASHES after it, both writers casting their mothers as the central characters. Both emerged from impoverished childhoods to achieve success, though Dahlberg's was critical rather than financial. Dahlberg was dead when ANGELA'S ASHES was published in 1996, but his former wife, R'lene Dahlberg, was alive. She was the first person to encourage McCourt to publish his work and stated in a private note (included here) that she "got him his first publication- called 'If you live in a lane.'" Her importance to McCourt was publicly acknowledged by him in his book where she is listed first on the Acknowledgments page:& & "This is a small hymn to an exaltation of women.& R'lene Dahlberg fanned the embers."& & McCourt told friends a funny tale of walking with Edward Dahlberg down Second Avenue. Dahlberg was "pontificating like Jehova" and as they approached the Jewish funeral home where his "sainted" mother had been laid out, Dahlberg stepped in dog excrement.& & "How can letters flourish in the commonwealth," Dahlberg immediately raved, "when pederasts are permitted to parade their poodles to dung on the pavement!"& & He removed his soiled shoe and threw it in the city garbage can, continuing home with one shoe on and one shoe gone.&

        Telex Iran: In the Name of Revolution

      New York: Aperture, 1983. First American edition, published simultaneously with the first French edition of the photojournalist's first book. Folio, original stiff photographic wrappers, photographic endpapers. Inscribed by Gilles Peress. In fine condition. Roth 101; Open Book, 330; Parr and Badger II, 252. Peress described his art well when he said, "I work much more like a forensic photographer in a certain way, collecting evidence. I've started to take more still lifes, like a police photographer, collecting evidence as a witness. I've started to borrow a different strategy than that of the classic photojournalist. The work is much more factual and much less about good photography. I don't care that much anymore about "good photography." I'm gathering evidence for history, so that we remember" (U.S. News). "Telex Iran… chronicles the crisis in United States-Iran relations in late 1979 and early 1980 when militant Iranian students seized the American Embassy and held its inhabitants hostage. Peress' book is oversized, graphically bold and… provides numerous perspectives on an extremely sensitive political problem… Along with reportage of major political events, Peress' pictures record mundane spaces, places, people and moments of Iranian life in order to emphasize the incomprehensibility and confusion of the environment before his eyes. In this way the photographer is able to visualize precisely the culture gap that made such a historical misunderstanding possible. It is a brilliant tactic" (Roth, 28).

Fine and unread, the binding square and very tight; in a better than Near Fine jacket, the spine tips lightly rubbed, the back panel with several creases and short closed tears.

A Fine, unread copy, marred only by faint dust-spotting to the fore- and top edges; in a Fine, bright, unfaded jacket. Albany is the crucible where Kennedy&#39;s Irish immigrants&#151;machine politicians and lowlifes, oucasts and swells, many members of the author&#39;s fictional Phelan family&#151;have come to forge their version of the American dream. "Inevitable comparisons to James Joyce and his delineations of his native Dublin abound in discussions of Kennedy&#146;s work, and the American author&#146;s selective use of stream of consciousness and stylistic experimentation enhance the comparisons." (Literary Encyclopedia) The Albany Cycle&#39;s crowning achievement, following Legs and Billy Phelan&#39;s Greatest Game, is Ironweed, awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction and generally acknowledged as Kennedy&#146;s masterpiece.
