Cummings, Hilda Doolittle, Robert Graves, Thom Gunn, Robert Hass, Andrew Hoyem, Ronald Johnson, Denise Levertov, Josephine Miles, Frank O'Hara, Ron Padgett, Robert Pinsky, Sylvia Plath, Ezra Pound, Kenneth Rexroth, James Schuyler, Edith Sitwell, Wallace Stevens, Philip Whalen, Jonathan Williams, and William Carlos Williams.

Includes fifteen wood engravings and one etching by Alan James Robinson, a master printer and artist who established the Cheloniidae Press, later called The Press of the Sea Turtle. The text used for this edition was first published in 1650, "corrected and much enlarged by the author." English author Sir Thomas Browne (1605 - 1682) was fascinated with the natural world. In this text he describes a variety of horned animals and ponders the varying medicinal value of their horns. His text has been beautifully printed and illustrated by Robinson with unicorns, horned beetles, a walrus, a narwhal, and more. The book is bound in white paper covered boards with vellum spine titled in gilt. Two of the illustrations are printed in blue ink along with one opening initial; the remaining illustrations and text are printed in black. This deluxe edition is issued with 15 loose plates, which include all of the wood engravings and the one etching printed in the book plus one additional image of a unicorn. Each is signed and numbered by the artist. The extra suite of plates is contained in a cloth portfolio which matches the box. The book and portfolio are housed in an off-white cloth covered clamshell box with vellum spine title in gold. The emblem of the Cheloniidae Press, a sea turtle, is also stamped in gold along with the date at the foot of the spine on the box. The box shows light wear along the edges and corners and there are a few light smudge marks to panels. The prospectus featuring signed unicorn illustration is included. The book and portfolio are In fine condition and the box is in near fine condition. Unpaginated. [60 pages].

        Evaristo Carriego [Signed] A book about Old-time Buenos Aires

      New York: E. P. Dutton, 1984. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing (some tiny spots of foxing to the top of the closed page block), in a Fine dust jacket (some expected toning and two tiny rubs where the lower rear panel turns to the spine panel) SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES on the half-title in his later (blind) hand. First published in 1930, the book presents a collection of tightly-linked essays nominally built around Evaristo Carriego, a minor Argentine Poet who, in 1912, died at the age of 29. In spite of the book's title and apparent subject, the book is not as much about Carriego as it is about Borges himself and about old-time Buenos Aires. In consequence of this, the book is important for readers of Borges' works as it illuminates the landscape he chose for much of his subsequent writings and gives insights into Borges himself. Here we offer the first appearance of this important work in English translation, signed copies of which are absolute hen's teeth. An essentially Fine copy of a critical Jorge Luis Borges book, SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES. QUITE SCARCE.
