        Poems of W. B. Yeats. Selected and Introduced by Helen Vendler & with Six Etchings by Richard Diebenkorn

      4to. San Francisco: Arion Press, 1990. 4to, xxv, 171, (1, colophon)pp. With six full-page etchings. Original quarter red morocco & dark green cloth, matching cloth & board slipcase. As new. Limited to 400 numbered copies signed by Diebenkorn, this copy complete with the prospectus and the extra pamphlet by Vendler ?Yeats?s Paradises?. A beautifully designed and printed version of Yeats, perhaps the best of all and certainly the finest illustrated edition, with haunting etchings by the world-famous artist Diebenkorn. ?In one of his last ambitious print series, done in 1990, he represented variations on the theme of a coat on a hanger. The late etchings, meant to illustrate a luxury edition book of poems by W.B. Yeats published by San Francisco's Arion Press, constitute a kind of valedictory gesture.? (Diebenkorn Foundation). One of the scarcest of the Arion Press books, and surely one of the best.

        Photograph of Henry Miller at the 1962 International Writers Conference

      [Edinburgh, 1990. Landscape-format monochrome photographic portrait, signed ("Peter Keen") on the lower right margin, dry mounted. 405 x 305 mm. Fine. Candid portrait photograph of Henry Miller in spectacles and flat cap, taken at the 1962 International Writers' Conference held at McEwan Hall, Edinburgh. The conference - which was on the subject of "The Novel Today" - was organized by the publisher John Calder and featured seventy writers from twenty countries. The conference gained some notoriety from the argument between Alexander Trocchi and Hugh MacDiarmid, the latter calling the former "cosmopolitan scum." Miller, along with William Burroughs, sided with Trocchi, who replied, "I am only interested in lesbianism and sodomy."The photographer, Peter Keen (1928-2009), was commissioned to record the event for THE SUNDAY TIMES. His other notable work includes portraiture - some in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery - and the photographic illustrations to Ted Hughes's RIVER (London, 1983).
