Emperor of Midnight.
San Francisco: Black Sparrow Press, 1974 - Octavo. Original illustrated wrappers. Extremities a little rubbed, but a very good copy. First edition, first printing, wrappers issue, inscribed by the author to Winston Leyland, "For Winston Leyland, in a good cause as ever, Edouard Roditi", on the first blank, and with Leyland's ownership inscription inside front wrapper. This copy also has seven unpublished autograph letters signed from Roditi to Leyland, dated 1976-77, and an unpublished typewritten hand-corrected poem signed, titled "In Praise of Democracy". Leyland (b.1940) was a leading figure in American LGBT publishing who won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era, including Roditi himself, published in the Summer-Fall issue 1976. The letters centre around the preparation and response to the interview, but also discuss other gay matters. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
