        Walt Whitman ALS: "as I sit here late night Dec 31 … a storm out … tomorrow a new year", to Gabriel Sarrazin French poet and translator

      Camden, NJ: , January 1891, 1991. Camden, NJ, January 1891. 3" x 5". "ALS postcard, 5"" x 3"", postmarked, ""Camden /Jan / 91"" with the third being illegible. Signed by Walt Whiteman as ""Walt Whitman"". Boldly scripted with strong contrast entirely in his own hand. Front slight discoloration from being in an album of some sort with dime size spot, with verso maintaining one small spot of smeared ink, else near fine.Whitman's letter appears reflective on his life with the advent of the New Year. The postcard was written on a late and stormy night, Dec 31, 1890. His health was in rapid decline at point and he references such in his not ""-Am here yet + much the same"". However Whitman, with his strong constitution and relently attitude of looking forward regardless of his health, was still determined to compose and publish ""When I publish anything new I will send you""His reflective letter to Gabriel Sarrazin is shown in full below:""Campden New Jersey US AmericaThot(thought) I wd(would) send a short word as I sit here late night Dec 31 '90 + a storm out - + tomorrow a new year beginning (+ I pray it will be one lucky + blessed to you) - Am here yet + much the same-When I publish anything new I will send you - If you receive this write + give me directions - God Bless you.Walt Whitman""Called America's first ""poet of democracy"", a name for Whitman which reflected his ability to write in a singularly American character. Among the most influential US poets, often called the ""father of free verse"", his work was very controversial, particularly ""Leaves of Grass"" (1855) which was described as obscene for its overt sexuality. He worked as a government clerk and as a volunteer nurse during the Civil War. ""Leaves of Grass"", published with his own money, was an attempt to reach out to the common person with an American epic. He continued expanding and revising it until his death. There is a distinct contrast between Whitman's idealized notions of the human body as expressed in his literary work and the actual state of his health as it evolved over the course of his life. The many revisions of Leaves of Grass did not so much parallel his decline in health as much as reinforce his original conception of the natural human being as the divine reflection of the cosmos. Over time this idea as an essential theme of his work began to take precedence over others, serving as both his conception of America's unique characteristic as a people and the archetype of his own self-created myth for the model of healthy masculinity.As a consequence, the health-imbued persona of mythic proportions he projected in his work fused with new and various aspects of his self-created image as healer in each newly revised edition of the work. Harold Aspiz believes the first three editions of Leaves of Grass illustrate a merger of what he terms the ""fact and invention"" of Whitman's self-portrayal as the self-endowed symbol of his own magnificent body. His image as ""one of the roughs"" in the first edition transforms in the second into a magnetic ""folk-evangelist,"" in the third into a ""reincarnated Adam"" ready to bear healthy children, and in the fourth into the ""healer-camerado."" With each new edition, the body of the poet is used less and less as a metaphor for the physical vitality that was integral to his philosophy. By the time of this letter, Whitman was already partially paralyzed. Whitman spent his last years in Camden, New Jersey. As the end of 1891 approached, he prepared a final edition of ""Leaves of Grass"", the ""Deathbed Edition;"" hedied in 1892, about 2 years after he penned this postcard to Sarrazin.This incredible letter/postcard demonstrating Whitman's staunch perseverance to ignore the short comings of his long term health issues and clearly notes his phenomenal eternal positive energy he had for life. A fantastic piece."

        Autographed letter signed: A Christmas Memory

      1991 - When asked for an early childhood memory by a fan in 1991, Tony Hillerman wrote in blue ink on his "Tony Hillerman" letterhead: "Eric: An early memory-- at about age 8--coming home sleepy with Mama, Papa, brother & sister down the hill from Christmas midnight mass--sleepy, hungry, excited--eating fresh from-over bread & baked hot fresh ham, juicy & delicious--wood stove glowing hot, kitchen decorated with ironweed berries strung on threads, opening presents--finding Santa had brought me a cap gun and a book, a stocking cap & book for brother, a little doll & book for my sister. Bliss indeed. Then down the icy hallway to bed. Tony Hillerman" Also included is a glossy black and white photograph of Tony Hillerman, signed on both sides: "Tony Hillerman." The photo is by Miriam Berkley. Tony Hillerman (1925 – 2008) was an award-winning American author of detective novels and non-fiction works best known for his Navajo Tribal Police mystery novels. Several of his works have been adapted as big-screen and television movies. Some of his novels are: The Blessing Way, Dance Hall of the Dead, Listening Woman, People of Darkness, The Dark Wind, and A Thief of Time. He was a decorated combat veteran of World War II, serving from August 1943 to October 1945. He served as a mortar-man in the 103rd Infantry Division. He earned the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and a Purple Heart. He attended the University of Oklahoma after the war, meeting Marie Unzner, a student in microbiology. The couple wed and have one biological child and five adopted children. From 1948–62, he worked as a journalist, then moved his family to Albuquerque where he earned a master's degree from the University of New Mexico in 1966. It was during his time as a writer for the Borger News-Herald in Borger, Texas that he became acquainted with the sheriff of Hutchinson County, the man upon whom he would pattern the main character in his Joe Leaphorn novels. He taught journalism from 1966 to 1987 at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, and also began writing novels. He lived there with his wife Marie until his death in 2008. At the time of his death, they had been married 60 years and had ten grandchildren. (Wikipedia) [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        SWEYNHEYM AND PANNARTZ AND THE ORIGINS OF PRINTING IN ITALY: GERMAN TECHNOLOGY AND ITALIAN HUMANISM IN RENAISSANCE ROME

      McMinnville: Printed by the Bird & Bull Press for Phillip J. Pirages, 1991. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 233 COPIES (of 241 total). The present leaf book offers an uncommon opportunity for research libraries as well as collectors interested in early printing or in private press work and the book arts to obtain an example of the work of Sweynheym and Pannartz in a form that is handsomely produced and at the same time not prohibitively expensive. Aside from Gutenberg and his immediate associates, there are no figures more important in the early history of printing than Sweynheym and Pannartz, the earliest printers outside Germany. First at Subiaco and later in Rome, they produced an imposing catalogue of first editions of ancient authors, which for the first time systematically exploited the potential of the new technology as a means for disseminating humanistic texts to a large audience. The present scholarly work is the first book to create from the available information a broadly based and detailed picture of the activities of these two printers. The book examines in a full and careful way their lives and achievements within the context of their newly developed craft as well as the humanistic environment they encountered in Rome in the 1460s and 1470s. In the process of his account, Professor Hall challenges a number of widely held assumptions about the origins of printing in Italy. The volume is printed on luxurious mould-made Frankfurt paper by Henry Morris at the Bird & Bull Press, for more than 40 years one of America's most distinguished private presses. The 14 1/2 x 10 1/2" leaves are in excellent condition, and they show to good advantage the famous and beautiful type Sweynheym and Pannartz first used in 1467, recognized now as the earliest truly roman font.. 235 x 159 mm.

        Diccionario Grande De La Lengua De Michoacan

      Fimax Publicistas, Mexico City 1991 - 2 volumes: 704 pages with tables; 848 pages. Octavo (9" x 6 3/4") bound in original wrappers. Compiled by Warren J Benedict. First edition limited to 500 copies. In the fall of 1965, Warren found in the John Carter Brown Library, a very incomplete manuscript dictionary of the Tarascan language . In the catalog of the library it was indicated as a work of Father Gilberti, who first publish the grammar (1558) and dictionary (1559) of the language. But the manuscript dictionary was very different togthan that of the dictionary published by Gilberti. Warren considered copying the document but because of the poor physical condition of the manuscript, decided against doing so. In 1977, when Warren began to investigate further the life and writings of Brother Mathurin Gilberti, he found in a bibliographic directory quotation from a manuscript in the Latin American Library at Tulane, indicating that it was a "Vocabulary Castilian-Tarasco-Tarasco and Castilian" written by Brother Gilberti. When asked about the content of the manuscript, he was assured that the manuscript was published the Gilberti vocabulary. He found that not only was it different in many ways from the published vocabulary of Gilbert,i but was a full version of which the dictionary the manuscript of the John Carter Brown contained only the last part. Since the manuscript in the Tulane library completely, legible and without major flaws, it was possible to begin serious editorial work. So Warren called the manuscript of Tulane Text A. It consists of two parts: the Spanish-Tarasco part which has 130 leaves and the Tarasco-Spanish Part of 150 leaves. There was a note by the famous Mexican bibliophile Nicolás León indicating the provenance of the manuscript. This manuscript was an unpublished document in the hand of Father Gilberti. This vocabulary was produced after the one printed in Mexico in 1559 and therefore more copious and corrected. It was found among the books belonging to Mendoza in Guadalajara, 1913, and bought in the Archdiocese. With the stamp on the title page is the"Sociedad [Mexicana] de Geografía y Estadística"; but it is believed that it was part of the Mendoza's collection, because no files appear in the receipt proving that it had been donated in 1913, noted by Leon. Having satisfied his conscience, Leon sold the manuscript to William Gates, who in turn sold several photographic prints, which are cited in the Newberry Library, the Peabody Library, and the Library of Congress. In 1924 Tulane bought the collection. The binding of the manuscript has a stamp of "Gates Collection" on the back of the cover. The original manuscript is written throughout in the same hand, but has corrections and additions between the lines. Many of them are the original scribe, but there are also many additions in another hand, especially at the beginning of the Spanish-Tarasco part, which may conflict sharply with the original. The manuscript of the John Carter Brown Library, here called the Type B, consisting of 148 leaves. This work is the compilation of all this material. Lightly soiled with gently bumped corners and light edge wear, else a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
