        Thirty-Two Poems by Paul Celan; Newly Translated by Michael Hamburger

      Norwich: Embers Handpress, 1985. First and Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Gisele Celan-Lestrange. Number 76 of 100 copies, first edition of these translations, octavo size, 42 pp., signed by Gisele Celan-Lestrange and Michael Hamburger. Paul Celan (1920-1970) was born Paul Antschel in Romania to a German-speaking Jewish family, his surname was later spelled Ancel and he eventually adopted the anagram Celan as his nom de plume. Celan lived in France and was influenced by the French surrealists but wrote his poetry in German (he was well versed in at least six languages, and also translated the work of many notable poets). As a German-speaking Jewish survivor of WWII, living in France, Celan struggled immensely throughout his life with feelings of estrangement from his native language; he is said to have tried to create his own version of the language, emotionally dismantling it, resulting in an indirect obscurity and unpretentious darkness. Although not necessarily representative of all his work he is best know for his poem "Todesfugue" (Death March); this book gives us the first edition of these translations of thirty-two of his shorter poems. Michael Hamburger has translated much of Celan's work to English, here faithfully printed with a delicate etching by Gisele Celan-Lestrange (1927-1991), Paul Celan's wife. ***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter mauve morocco and marbled paper covered boards, lettering in gilt to backstrip, blue-green handmade paper endpapers, fore- and bottom edges uncut, tissue-guarded frontispiece an original etching by Gisele Celan-Lestrange; on Barcham-Green paper, octavo size (10 5/16" by 6 1/2"), pagination: [3, blank], [1-5] 6-39, [2, blank], [1,colophon], [5, blank], limited edition, this number 76 of 100 copies, signed by Gisele Celan-Lestrange and Michael Hamburger. Housed in a slipcase with grey paper sides, red cloth top and bottom. ***CONDITION: Fine; crisp, clean, as new and free of prior owner markings; in a like slipcase. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        El amor en los tiempos del Cólera

      Bogotá: Editorial Oveja Negra, 1985 First edition, limited issue of 1,000 copies. Signed by García Márquez and notarized by Colombian authorities to limitation page. Publisher's white boards, lettered in black to spine, in the original white dust jacket lettered in black, with steamboat illustration to front panel and artistic illustration of the author to rear panel. A bright near fine copy with a touch of soiling and bumping to extremities, as well as light toning to page edges; dust jacket lightly soiled with wear and creasing to edges, and with some closed tears and a few areas of loss to bottom edge, none affecting text. Overall, a pleasing copy of this scarce true first edition. El amor en los tiempos del cólera (Love in the Time of Cholera) focuses on the relationship of three members of a love triangle over the course of time. Based on the author's parents' relationship, the plot is divided into six parts, with two sections each for the three main stages of life: youth, adulthood, and old age. This volume is part of an advanced printing of 1,000 special edition copies signed by García Márquez, the proceeds of which were donated to the survivors of the 1985 Armero Tragedy in Colombia. During this catastrophic event, over 20,000 people died in the eruption of the volcano Nevado del Ruiz, including the majority of the population of Armero, a city built on the hardened remains of an earlier eruption. García Márquez, a Colombian nationalist and political activist, was living outside of the country at the time of the tragedy, having fled government persecution for his support of a radical military group. Although he did not return when he was invited back in 1982, Márquez never gave up his effort to improve the political climate and quality of life in Colombia. . Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
