Weil, James L
The poet's personal collection of his own books.
1952-2003. First editions. Excellent condition throughout, many in specially made boxes.. 68 volumes, varying formats and bindings James L. Weil (1929-2006) was best known as a small-press publisher of poetry. Principally under his Elizabeth Press imprint, and frequently in collaboration with the great Italian printing family of Mardersteigs, he issued exquisite small editions and championed the of the work of a significant stable of modern poets including William Bronk, Cid Corman, Larry Eigner, Theodore Enslin, Felix Setafanile, and others. Weil has long been associated with a literary aesthetic of elegant, philosophical, minimalism and a physical aesthetic associated with the fine typography of the Mardersteig's Officina Bodoni and Stamperia Valdonega, and the exacting graphics of artists such as Eugene Canadé and Jacques Hnizdovsky. Throughout his life, Weil also wrote poetry of his own. We are pleased to offer this collection of Weil's own copies of his own books. The collection is virtually comprehensive. It includes his books, broadsides, and keepsakes. Bound books are present in variant bindings as well as in copies specially bound for Weil, and press-inscribed for him. A complete list of the collection is available upon request.
