        El mundo poetico de Braulio Arenas containing Rimbaud's El Barco Ebrio.

      Ediciones Dos Amigos, Buenos Aires 1985 - One of 60 copies on Arches from a total issue of 62, numbered and signed by the publisher, Samuel Cesar Palui, on Ingres cream paper. Illustrated with two original full-page aquatints by Aida Carballo that were editioned with the aid of Mirta Ripoll. The text, which which contains seven original poems by Braulio Arenas in addition to one translation by Braulio Arenas, was hand set and printed letterpress by Ruben Raul Lapolla in 18pt Garamond in two colors, red for the poems' titles and initial letters and black for the text. The poem by Rimbaud, "El Barco Ebrio" ("Le Bateau Ivre") has been translated from the original French to Spanish by Braulio Arenas. The tan Ingres text pages of Rimbaud's poem are loosely inserted as pp. 17-24 in the verses of EL MUNDO POETICO DE BRAULIO ARENAS. Page size: 12-15/16 x 9-1/16 inches and 10-9/16 inches, 40pp. Bound: loose as issued in green wrapper, printed with publisher's initials on front fold- over tab, housed in red cloth and blue paper box with author and title printed on front and on spine, fine. The aquatints are lovely. The first is of a child floating a paper boat and the second a surreal cityscape. The image of the child harmonizes perfectly with the verse making the connection between the free expressions of the young with the efforts of the Surrealists. Braulio Arenas (1913-1988) Chilean poet, short story writer and dramatist, was awarded the National Prize for Literature in 1984. Considered a key Chilean surrealist, he was one of the founding members of the Mandragora (Surreal group) in 1938. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press. 1985. A short story collection, one of the author's scarcest trade books, published prior to Burke's success with the award-winning Dave Robicheaux mystery series. There was a simultaneous softcover issue, which is itself moderately uncommon, but the hardcover issue, of which this is one, is legendary in its scarcity. It has been reported that only 500 copies were bound up in cloth, most of which -- coming as they did from a university press publisher not widely distributed in the book trade -- would have been earmarked directly for libraries. Signed by the author. Fine in a fine dust jacket. First Edition. Hardcover.

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston 1985 - Important Presentation & Association Copy. 8vo. 365 pp. First Edition Inscribed By Paul Theroux to Nobel Prize winning Trinidadian author V.S. Naipaul on the front free endpaper, 'For Vidia, To mark twenty years of friendship - if you only knew how your good influence has kept me on the straight and narrow, with love, Paul' and additionally Signed by Theroux on the title-page. Theroux's friendship with Naipaul had spanned decades, Theroux penning, "V.S. Naipaul: An Introduction to His Work", in admiration of his mentor, and to mark their friendship's decline and fall, "Sir Vidia's Shadow: A Friendship Across Five Continents". A near fine copy, (slight bump to the top of the front board), in 1/4 turquoise cloth over grey paper covered boards, black and silver titles to the spine in a bright, fresh pictorial dustwrapper with light overall use. An extraordinary presentation & association copy and now a piece of literary history as the original appearance on the rare book market of three early Theroux titles [Fong and the Indians, Sinning with Annie; and V.S. Naipaul: An Introduction to his Work.] inscribed to Naipaul & his first wife Pat, precipitated a series of explosive exchanges between Theroux & Naipaul that helped dash their 30 plus year friendship into so much literary dust. This was Naipaul's own copy of this collection of essays, and it includes Theroux's excellent portrait of Naipaul which he, Naipaul did not entirely appreciate. Their relations had turned bitter about the time that Theroux discovered that Nadira, Naipaul's new wife had arranged to sell his Theroux books. Notwithstanding the ensuing tumult, the wonderful inscription tells volumes about the relationship of these two accomplished writers who shared so much greatness together. In the end, the pluses will count for much more than their bruised egos. Certainly, the most important copy, ever. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Bound by Gerard Charriere. In this play by Harry Kondoleon, "A woman, her husband, and her husband's lover go up and down the Riviera only to be disappointed by the Riviera. The dullness of the Cote D'Azur reveals to these Americans the dullness and impossibility of love...they tire of one another and pursue sex partners at random until they are attacked and consumed by sea dragons." Mark Beard's brilliant illustrations of these "two-dimensional and ironic" characters, in their bathing suits and sunglasses, in saturated primary colors and his flat presentation, are overwhelming in their impact of the characters' vapidity. With such illustrations as Greek temple caryatids folding out to reveal the Cote d'Azur and paper doll players, Beard's art inexpressibly moves the viewer to realize the inevitable crush of the dragon of these pitiable self-centered creatures. A brilliant mixture of wit and irony with difficult and innovative printmaking techniques producing prints with highly unusual textures, especially in the final fold out, which has an effect of great richness and mystery.
