        An original Seamus Heaney limerick, unique to the occasion, handwritten, signed and dated on a postcard illustrated with his portrait.

       Circumstances for the limerick are well documented. The Post Office receiving stamp establishes the postcard was mailed in Dublin 1 day after it was written, suggesting Heaney wrote it in Dublin. As wittily explained in the verse, the limerick was made per a request for an example of Heaney's signature. Below the limerick, a note establishes it is to assist in raising funds for the Swansea Fringe Festival, confirmed by the mailing address that also provides the full names of the persons in the limerick. Limerick, note, and address are handwritten by Seamus Heaney with a blue ballpoint pen: signed in full and dated June 14, 1983. THE ORIGINAL LIMERICK: This is not an ordinary Seamus Heaney signed item, of which there are many, for he has been generous with his time, nor is it a poem copied later in manuscript form, as for a deluxe limited edition. This is a unique, original ephemeral example, not known to have been ever published, of his light verse, signed, dated and exceptionally well documented by virtue of the limerick itself, the note by Heaney below the verse, and the method of transfer including information from the postal seal. "A couple named Ratcliffe + Hood / Have written to ask if I would / Just write out my name - / Which I do with some shame, / It seems so self-centered and rude." NOTE BELOW: "for the Swansea Fringe Grand Auction". MAILING ADDRESS: Helen Ratcliffe and Untepher Hood / Swansea Fringe Festival / Civic Information Centre / Singleton Street / Swansea SAI 3QG / Wales. POST CARD: Heaney portrait by Edward McGuire reproduced in color and published by the Ulster Museum, as color no. 7, stamped by The Republic of Ireland Post Office, Baile Átha Cliath (Dublin) at 6:30 PM on 15-VI (June 15), 1983. SWANSEA FRINGE: A contemporary offshoot of the Eisteddfod, the famous Welsh performance festivals, believed first held in 1980 (possibly 1981). The festival is held September 28-October 8 and generally has over 100 theatre, cabaret, music, and performance acts. Swansea in Swansea Province is Wales' 2nd largest city after Cardiff. CONDITION DETAIL: Never mounted. Handwritten Side: clean, ink bright, letters easily read: minute wear to tips and outer bottom tip with a light water stain that doesn't continue to other side. Address Section: Light vertical crease through 6 letters, affected letters clear. Three moderate abrasion spots 1) top edge, rubbing out printed capitals TCA in POSTCARD, 2) bottom corner, and 3) below limerick, well away from signature. A penciled annotation at bottom edge is mostly erased and barely visible. Color Reproduction: light crease runs horizontally across at chest: bottom tips with minute wear: outer top tip with light rub: light soiling to 2 spots near outer edge, otherwise clean and bright. LIMERICK: light verse of 5 lines with rhyme scheme of aabba, lines 1,2, and 5 with three metrical feet and lines 3 and 4 with two, the metre, traditional anapestic, 2 short syllables followed by a long. Use of word first documented1898 but usage of form pre-dates, at least to 1744 with published "Hickere, Dickere Dock", and likely back much further still: in Ireland the form flourished with the exchanges of the Maigue River poets in the 1730s, centered around Croom in County Limerick. SEAMUS HEANEY: 1995 recipient of Nobel Prize in Literature; first book-"Eleven Poems" (1965); first major collection-"Death of a Naturalist"(1966). In 1983, (year of limerick), he finished his acclaimed translation from the Irish of "Sweeney Astray". Permanent address-Dublin though he has resided frequently in the U.S., teaching at Harvard, etc. Heaney occasionally got up to Swansea, particularly the University. A limited edition booklet of poems, "Joy of Night" was published by the University of Swansea Press in 1994. EDWARD MCGUIRE [1932-86]: Described by art critic, Brian Fallon as, "the finest Irish portrait painter of his generation, and possibly the finest Irish portraitist since John Butler Yeats". He is recalled among friends and people Heaney knew, now dead, in "Seeing Things" (1992). The 1974 portrait painting of Seamus Heaney reproduced on the postcard is in the collection of the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin.

      A Spectacular Collection of all the cornerstone Godot editions. Includes the True First Edition in French, the first illustrated edition, A Presentation Copy of the Faber and Faber English Edition -warmly inscribed by Beckett in 1983, a Presentation Copy of the original Grove edition, plus, original playbills for all the major initial productions of Godot onstage. Within this stellar set are the three seminal editions of Beckett's Waiting for Godot: which were all milestones in Beckett's career, and each had considerable impact on the development of "Theater of the Absurd." In fact, it was Godot which defined modernism in twentieth-century theater. Brooks Atkinson said of an early production, "it gave a frightening impression of being close to the truth of the human race waiting indolently for a solution that will never come."o and see Waiting for Godot. At the worst you will discover a curiosity, a four-leaved clover, a black tulip; at the best something that will securely lodge in a corner of your mind for as long as you live" (Bair, Deirdre, Samuel Beckett: A Biography. New York: Summit, 1990, p. 454). Ad 1: True First Edition. Beckett's Waiting for Godot, a milestone in a long productive career, this play has become the symbol of the "Theater of the Absurd." A fine copy. Ad. 2: First Illustrated Edition of Godot. This volume exactly reproduces the 1952 "Editions de Minuit" first edition but includes for the first time 4 pages of black and white photographs of the original cast performing Godot at the Théâtre de Babylone. Short tear to page 54, else fine copy. Ad 3: The playbill for the original French production of Godot at the Théâtre de Babylone, a diminutive theater in Paris. With photos of the first actors to perform in Godot, i.e. Julien Verdier, Lucien Raimbourg and Pierer Latour. The play opened on January 5th, 1953 and ran for over 300 performances. Ad. 4: First Edition in English, Presentation Copy, inscribed by Samuel Beckett: "For Jack (i.e. Jack Garfein) affectionally from Sam 20.11.87." The recipient of this copy was the actor / director Jack Garfein (b. 1930 in Mukaccvo, Czechoslovakia); young Garfein survived a stay in the Auschwitz concentration camp during WW II. In 1945, he emigrated to the U.S. and studied at the New School for Social Research before going into the theater. Garfein was the primary force behind The Actors and Directors Lab in both Los Angeles and New York, as well as the artistic director of The Harold Clurman Theatre in New York. He staged productions of Beckett's works, including an Alan Schneider directed triple-bill of "Ohio Impromptu" - "Catastrophe" - "What Were" in 1983, and a series of works by Beckett at New York's Samuel Beckett Theater. Dustjacket with light wear to top extremities, spine ever so slightly darkened. Presentation copies of any edition of Waiting for Godot are now very rare on the market. Ad. 5: Original playbill from the first New York production of Godot. The cast included Bert Lahr, E.G. Marshall and the chimerical Luchino Solito de Solis. Good condition, light dampstain to covers. Ad. 6: First English Edition. With publisher's note tipped-in announcing that "When Waiting for Godot was transferred from the Arts Theatre to the Criterion Theatre, a small number of textual deletions were made to satisfy the requirements of the Lord Chamberlain. The text printed here is that used in the Criterion Theatre production". Dustjacket with light fading to spine, one short tear closed, a few miniscule signs of wear to spine extremities. Ad 7; Later Edition of the Faber and Faber London printing. Presentation Copy from Beckett to George Hall "with all best wishes Samuel Beckett 29.11.83." " Presumably the recipient was the Broadway actor, George Hall (1916- 2002), who was a theater, TV, and movie actor, best remembered by his role as the elderly Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones in the TV series "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" (1992) His Broadway debut was in 1946. Fine copy. Ad. 8: Playbill for the infamous Criterion Production which when Godot was transferred from the Arts Theatre to the Criterion Theatre, a number of textual deletions were made to satisfy the requirements of the Lord Chamberlain. The complete text was not performed in England for another nine years. Ad. 9: Playbill for the acclaimed National Theater production of Godot with John Alderton as Estragon, Alec McCowen as Vladimir and Terence Rigby as Pozzo. This production used Beckett's revised text, based on his 1975 Schiller-Theater production, and the program reproduces three pages from his production notebook, along with a few photographs of the author and actors. Includes extracts from Michael Rudman's visit with Beckett in Paris in 1987, as well as extracts from the original reviews by Norman Mailer, Tennessee Williams, Clive Barnes et al. A fine copy. Ad. 10: Playbill for the famous Mike Nichols Production at the Lincoln Center Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, starring F. Murray Abraham, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, and Bill Irwin.

        The Plant, Parts 2 and 3 (Signed)

      Bangor: Philtrum Press, 1983,1985. Advance issues.. See description for condition of items included.. Advance issues of two of the three parts of Stephen King&#39;s unfinished serial novel, <i>The Plant</i>. In the 1980s, King printed up limited editions of <i>The Plant</i> in three installments, from 1982 to 1985. Each book was issued separately, in editions of 226 copies, and each is a very difficult item to find these days. These are advance issues of Parts Two and Three, as follows: galley proof of Part Two, <u>annotated in ink by King in five places, three of them signed "Steve</u>." Includes the title page and pages 1-17, minus p. 9. 7-1/2" x 25", folded; near fine. <i>Together with</i> a photocopy typescript of Part Three, with <u>annotations by King throughout</u> in pencil and green, blue, red, black, violet and orange ink. Includes pages 1-56, minus page 50, plus the colophon and three versions of the title page; fine. Both items appear to have been working copies of the respective parts, which probably accounts in some fashion for the missing page in each, and strongly suggests that they are unique -- i.e., that it would have hindered the publication process for more than one version of either of these to have circulated, except perhaps sequentially. In any case, Stephen King manuscript material is extremely rare and seldom appears on the market; to have two of the three parts of <i>The Plant</i>, each annotated by hand by the author, is remarkable. We have never had, nor seen, comparable manuscript material or annotated galleys by King before.

        FRANKENSTEIN; OR, THE MODERN PROMETHEUS

      Northampton, Massachusetts: Pennyroyal Press, 1983. No. 175 OF 350 COPIES. Hardcover. 349 x 254 mm (13 3/4 x 10"). Portfolio: 355 x 260 mm. (14 x 10 1/4") xvi, 282 pp., [2] leaves. Two volumes (including portfolio of prints). With essays by Ruth Mortimer, Emily Sunstein, Joyce Carol Oates, and William St. Clair. No. 175 OF 350 COPIES. Original tan quarter morocco over maroon cloth boards by Sam Ellenport at the Harcourt Bindery, raised bands, maroon leather label with calligraphic titling. In the matching publisher&#39;s (just slightly marked) folding cloth box. WITH 52 WOOD ENGRAVINGS BY BARRY MOSER, and with an extra suite of plates in a portfolio, each of the extra plates signed by him. Printed by Harold McGrath in Poliphilus and Wilhelm Klingsporschrift type. "A Century for the Century" 92. Very faint foxing to fore and tail edges of the book block, otherwise spotless and unworn. Moser&#39;s dark and haunting wood engravings are well suited to Shelley&#39;s classic tale of horror, and the work was acclaimed by the Grolier Club as one of its "Century for the Century." We never see the monster in full here; the artist cleverly shows us only glimpses of the horror and allows our imaginations to elaborate. At the same time, the model for an earnest but fanatical Victor Frankenstein was a very real person--printer Art Larson, who worked with McGrath and Moser in the early 1980s. The layout of the text here is noteworthy, as it echoes the design of 15th century books: most pages are a solid block of letterpress, the paragraph openings marked with tiny cruciform ornaments just as paragraphs in incunables were indicated with small painted flourishes. This design, the typeface (clean, elegant, roman), and the airy spacing make for a page that is striking in its simplicity and, thus reminiscent, not only of early printing, but also particularly of Doves Press books. In addition to the three volumes of the 1818 text of "Frankenstein," this edition includes critical essays by Sunstein, St. Clair, and Oates, and a publishing history by noted bibliographer Ruth Mortimer.

        Milongas. Prologo and Epilogo del Autor. Grabados Originales de Ana Maria Moncalvo

      Buenos Aires: Ediciones Dos Amigos. 1983. First Edition thus, one of 30 Roman-numeralled copies only, all on Richard de Bas hand-made white paper, each signed in pen by the author, Jorge Luis Borges, and the designer / publisher, Samuel Cesar Palui. Page size: 9-3/4 x 6-1/4 inches; 58pp. Bound by Maria Sol Rebora: full fawn-colored goatskin with onlays of three shades of cream, plus tan and black morocco, each applied in vertical bands of irregular widths, with gilt fillets tooled horizontally at irregular widths, the title in gilt on a smooth spine, fawn colored morocco doublures with vertical gilt fillets at irregular widths on the front and rear flyleaves, signed in gold gilt on lower rear turn-in, Sol Rebora," top edge gilt, headbands of fawn colored and gold gilt thread, white Japan paper guards with gold gilt threads in the paper, original wrappers bound in, housed in quarter goatskin clamshell box of gray goatskin with title and author stamped in gold gilt on spine and edges, with gilt fillets running length of spine, and gray paper over boards, fine. Sol Rebora has designed and executed an especially elegant binding for this beautiful book from Ediciones Dos Amigos. The design is deceptively simple as she has used vertical and horizontal lines at irregular distances to form a strong architectural image. A further integral part of the design is her use of the grains of the morocco placed in contrast to one another to create visual depth on a flat surface. Maria Sol Rebora began her studies in fine bookbinding in 1996 in her native Argentina. She has since studied binding with Betsy Palmer and Deborah Evetts and design with Monique Lallier, Edwin Heim, Jean-Luc Honneger and Jan Sobota, as well as at the Centro del bel Libro, Ascona. Her work is currently featured in the 100th Anniversary Exhibition of the Guild of Book Workers, a juried exhibition. & Included in this collection of Jorge Luis Borges poems, known as "Milongas," is a previously unknown Milonga, titled "Unfaithful." Borges has also added a new Prologue and Afterward to this collection of poetry for. In the Afterwood, he thanks the artist, publisher, and printer for their work in bringing this book to life. & Under the direction of Samuel Cesar Palui, one of the "Dos Amigos," this edition was hand set and printed letterpress in Kluekens 12pt. in two colors, black for the text and red for the running heads, initial letters, and page numbers, by Ruben and Claudio Lapolla. The four aquatints by Ms. Moncalvo were pulled with the assistance of Mirta Ripoll; all are sepia and black. Combined with Ms. Rebora&#39;s classically beautiful binding, the reader / viewer sees a true livre de peintre in the French tradition with a decidedly "New World" emphasis and twist. Borges&#39; poems, known as "Milongas," were frequently set to the music of the tango and have contributed greatly to the cultural life of Argentina. This copy is about as beautiful contemporary book as one could hope to find. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/9888.jpg >Image.</A><br>

Matthew Joseph Bruccoli (1931-2008) was the foremost F. Scott Fitzgerald scholar and bibliographer of his time. Additionally, he wrote on, and edited critical editions of Hemingway, Hammett, Cozzens, Thomas Wolfe, John O&#39;Hara, and Vladimir Nabokov.

He was responsible for the republication and rediscovery of dozens of forgotten American novels, and went on to be the editor and publisher of the 400+ volume Dictionary of Literary Biography, and was the chief editor of the University of Pittsburgh Press bibliography series.

Sewn in brick red wrappers with paper label bearing titles on upper wrapper, internally clean and bright, illustration of weasels (by Hughes?) to title page, number 69 of an edition of 75 signed by Hughes on the limitation page, printed at The Morrigu Press in 14pt Perpetua on Roma hand-made paper. , The Morrigu Press was founded in 1979, when Ted Hughes&#39; sister, Olwyn, gave his son, Nicholas, her Albion hand press and a large fount of Monotype Centaur. Olwyn, who together with her brother had been publishing limited editions of his work under the Rainbow Press imprint, had bought the press in the early 1970s, planning to experiment with design ideas for books. However printing proved more complicated than expected and so she gave the press to her nephew. Nicholas had learned printing and bookbinding at school, had discovered a talent for it and so set about printing limited editions of his father&#39;s work. Ted Hughes was a talented illustrator, but The Morrigu Press publications are almost the only place where his illustrations were published. The exceptions being the Rainbow Press book, &#39;Earth Moon&#39;, and, as a single drawing of a bull, on or in Moortown Elegies and the trade edition of Moortown Diary. , 9.5" by 6.5" .
