        Weasels at Work

      North Tawton: The Morrigu Press. VG+. 1983. Limited Edition. Softcover. 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' 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'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, 'Earth Moon', 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" .

        Small archive including HIPPOCRENE, MATOAKA, THE KINGFISHER, WHAT THE LIGHT WAS LIKE, ARCHAIC FIGURE, and THE SILENCE OPENS, some signed, others with notes laid in, typed poem DUNDEE

      New York: Knopf and others, 1983 . First editions . Most fine or near fine condition, some with folds from mailing. . FOR SALE, AS A LOT ONLY: a unique group of items with a significant association to Clampitt's life. Included are four of her hardcover books published by Knopf - The Kingfisher, What the Light Was Like, Archaic Figure and The Silence Opens. Kingfisher is a 2nd printing (before publication), the rest are first printings; none have dust jackets (possibly as sent by the publisher or possibly removed by the recipient.) Tipped onto the front endpaper of 'The Kingfisher' is a small handwritten note "For Harold Guthrie - who opened the excitements of English poetry for me so many years ago, and whose friendship I treasure - with thanks and best wishes always." SIGNED by Clampitt in full and dated in December 1982. 'Archaic Figure' and 'What the Light Was Like' have tipped-in printed cards from the publisher stating "with the compliments of the author" (one of those cards has "Harold Guthrie "handwritten on it); 'The Silence Opens' has a similar card, loosely laid in. Also included is a brief typed signed note dated in December 1983, referring both to seeing Guthrie recently and to the limited edition broadside of "Hippocrene" which she was sending as a Christmas greeting. The note also states that she is enclosing a poem "that comes out of my brief visit to Scotland." The photocopied typed poem "Dundee: A Homage" fills one side of an 8 1/2 by 11 inch sheet (folded in four for mailing). Hippocrene is on a single sheet 17" by 11" folded to make 4 page broadside, printed in an edition of 220 copies on the occasion of the poet reading at Bennington College in November 17, 1983. It has an additional fold line across the middle (probably to fit in a smaller envelope for mailing) - As far as we have been able to determine, "Dundee" has not been published in book form, at least - The final item is a copy of "Matoaka: A Poem in Celebration of the Tercentary of the College of William and Mary College in Virginia" in 1993. This is INSCRIBED by Clampitt to Guthrie 'with longtime and continuing esteem' and dated in February, 1993. While Clampitt started writing poetry seriously in the 1970's, and had been published in magazines, including the New Yorker, as well as publishing the chapbook 'Multitudes, Multitudes,' it was the appearance of her first collection with Knopf - The Kingfisher - in 1983, when she was already in her 60's, that brought her acclaim. This lot covers the entire span of Clampitt's most productive last years before her death - and they are evidence on an on-going and warm relationship with the teacher from her hometown of New Providence, Iowa, the teacher whom she honored publicly in 1984 when she wrote (at the end of 'A Homage to John Keats'): "I wish to . . . pay tribute to Harold Guthrie, in whose class at New Providence, Iowa, I had my introduction to the poetry of Keats." The two very uncommon published items, as well as the short notes and the poem "Dundee", make this lot interesting in itself, but the real value lies in the spirit behind these gifts and notes to Guthrie - her teacher more than 40 years before.

      Graduale: 2° (50 x 35 cm), 314 farb. Bl. m. 71 tlw. m. Blattgold geschmückten Miniaturen, 13 ornamentale Initialen; Kommentarband: 4°, IX, 347 S., 85 Textabb. u. 1 Schallplatte., Graduale: OLdr. auf 3 echten Bünden m. 2 Ldr.-Schliessen, Eisenbeschlägen u Mittelrosette in Holzkiste. Kommentarbd.: OHLdr., Faksimile tadellos. Kommentarbd.: Min Vergriffen. Nr. 816 von 930 arab. num. Exemplaren. Erstklassiges Faksimile der 1312 entstandenen Prachthandschrift, eines der bedeutendsten gotischen Kunstwerke der Schweiz, entstanden im Kloster St. Katharinenthal bei Diessenhofen. Der Textband mit der erstmaligen und umfassenden wissenschaftlichen Bearbeitung des Graduale. Das Faksimile wurde getreu dem Original im Format von 48 x 35 cm faksimiliert. Jedes der 314 Blätter sowie die nachgewiesenen Fragmente der beiden im Codex fehlenden Blätter wurden wiedergegeben. Sämtliche Blätter wurden originalgetreu randbeschnitten und danach von Hand auf echte Bünde geheftet. Der Einband besteht aus echtem Nappaleder und ist mit Eckbeschlägen, einer Mittelrosette und Schließen versehen. Der wissenschaftliche Kommentarband setzt sich ausführlich mit dem Graduale von St. Katharinenthal auseinander. Verlagswerbung: «Das Graduale von St. Katharinenthal ist eines der bedeutendsten gotischen Kunstwerke der Schweiz und von unschätzbarem Wert für die Geistes-, Liturgie-, Kunst- und Kulturgeschichte des beginnenden Spätmittelalters. Ein Graduale ist ein liturgisches Buch, das jene Gesänge mit Notation enthält, die in lateinischer Sprache nach dem Kalender wechselnd im feierlichen Hochamt vorgetragen wurden. Für den Chor waren sehr große Bände notwendig, aus denen man selbst aus größerer Entfernung noch gemeinsam singen konnte. Das erklärt auch die imposante Größe des Codex: die 628 Seiten (314 Blätter) haben ein Format von 48 x 35 cm. Aufgrund eines handschriftlichen Eintrags auf der Innenseite des Vorderdeckels lassen sich sowohl die Herkunft des Manuskripts aus dem Kloster St. Katharinental in der Nähe von Dießenhofen in der Schweiz als auch die Zeit der Vollendung der Handschrift um 1312 erschließen. Auf ein Blatt mit kalendarischen Angaben folgen 626 Seiten mit den lateinischen Gesängen nach dem Ritus des Dominikanerordens in gotischer Schrift. Die Noten sind im gregorianischen Vierliniensystem aufgezeichnet, wobei jede Seite neun Text- und neun Notenzeilen umfaßt. Die Texte, in damals üblicher "Littera textualis" geschrieben, verraten einen geübten Schreiber. Der Bilderschmuck des Werkes besteht aus 71 zierlich gemalten, reich mit Blattgold versehenen, farbenfrischen Miniaturen und 13 ornamentalen Prachtinitialen sowie unzähligen fein verzierten kalligraphischen Anfangsbuchstaben. An der großartigen künstlerischen Ausschmückung waren mindestens sechs, wenn nicht gar sieben Hände beteiligt. Es ist jedoch schwierig, eine genaue Händescheidung durchzuführen; sie sind nur in einzelnen Fällen möglich, in anderen bestehen jedoch gewisse Unsicherheiten, die nicht gänzlich ausgeräumt werden konnten. Als sicher kann jedoch gelten, daß zwei Hauptmeister an der Ausstattung des Graduale von St. Katharinenthal beteiligt waren. Beide neigen zu monumentalen Formen und zeichnen sich durch hohe technische Perfektion aus. Die Miniaturen des Graduale sind insgesamt Spitzenleistungen gotischer Kunst. In ihrer strahlenden Luzidität, in ihrer Empfindsamkeit und ihrem vornehmen Charme, auch in der Besinnung auf das formal Wesentliche und die gelassene Klarheit der Komposition sind diese Miniaturen mehr als alle anderen Werke des Bodenseeraumes führend in der europäischen Kunstsprache. Das 1312 entstandene Graduale blieb bis ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein im Kloster Katharinenthal in Gebrauch. Auf welchen Wegen die Handschrift in den Jahren um 1820 in den Besitz eines Konstanzer Antiquars gelangte, ist bis heute unbekannt. Dieser machte das Graduale zum Mittelpunkt seines Museums. Er war es vermutlich auch, der die beiden am reichsten mit Miniaturen versehenen Seiten extrahierte. Sie befinden sich heute, in mehrere Teile zerlegt, bei verschiedensten Institutionen und auch in Privatbesitz. Schließlich tauchte die Handschrift Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in England auf, wo sie bis 1958 verblieb. In diesem Jahr wurde der Nachlaß des bedeutenden Sammlers Sir Charles Dyson Perrins versteigert, worunter sich auch das wertvolle Graduale befand. Diese einmalige Chance der Rückführung nutzten mit vereinten Kräften der Schweizer Bundesrat, die Gottfried-Keller-Stiftung und der Kanton Thurgau durch eine bereitwillige Zusage finanzieller Beteiligung. So konnte das Meisterwerk am 9. Dezember 1958 erworben werden und wird seither wieder in der Schweiz aufbewahrt.» Platte: Gesänge aus dem Graduale St. Katharinetal um 1312, Chora Schola Kloster Einsiedeln, Leitung Pater Roman Bannwart OSB.
