Small Collection of Books Inscribed by Edward Dahlberg to Coburn Britton
Near Fine/Near Fine. Five books Inscribed by Dahlberg to Coburn H. Britton, the owner of the Horizon Press, and founder of Prose magazine. Dahlberg and Britton were extremely close, as the inscriptions imply, with Britton considering Dahlberg his second "Father," and Dahlberg referring to Britton as his "Son." The books are as follows:Epitaphs of Our Times: The Letters of Edward Dahlberg. New York: George Braziller (1967). First edition. Errata slip laid in. Foxing to the top edge, top corners bumped else fine in near fine dustwrapper with a little chipping at the spine ends. Inscribed: "For my very dear son Coburn, who has a rare and sweet nature. Your loving Father. Edward Nov. 28 '72."The Confessions of Edward Dahlberg. New York: George Braziller (1971). First edition. Foxing to the top edge, about fine in near fine dustwrapper with a little of the normal wrinkling to the lamination. Inscribed: "For my very [dear] Coby. For my second and only Son from his loving second Father. Can I say more? Doubtless. Again all love. Edward Oct. 22, '70. N.Y.C." Britton is mentioned in the "Acknowledgments" as the editor of Prose. Chapter 12 is marked with a paperclip and extensively scored in the text, including whole paragraphs crossed out or highlighted, whether by Dahlberg or Britton is not immediately clear, but certainly by one of them.The Sorrows of Priapus: Consisting of The Sorrows of Priapus and The Carnal Myth.
