Three Poems [Rare Signed Association Copy]
librarie jeanette monnier, Paris 1933 - A Very Good copy in the Publisher's Original Wrappers (age toning to wrappers, split along the spine but wrappers still holding by the wrapper flaps, partial ring stain to the rear wrapper, some very light pencil notes to the bottom margin of one page) PLACED, DATED, INSCRIBED, AND SIGNED BY BRIAN COFFEY as follows: "Paris 10-4-33 / For Miss Sonya Schulberg / Sympathi.(?) Impor.(?) / Brian Coffey" -- Sonya Schulberg, herself an author and the sister of the author Budd Schulberg knew Coffey when she was at a Parisian Finishing School; one of only 150 copies printed for Coffey and placed for sale at the Librarie Jeanette Monnier. Coffey's debut solo book of Poems [which followed a book of Poems that he published with Denis Devlin, another of Ireland's modernist poets, who, along with Coffey and Samuel Beckett, emerged in the late 1920s -- Samuel Beckett, in his 1934 essay "Recent Irish Poetry", named Coffey and Devlin as forming "the nucleus of a living poetic in Ireland"]. Other than a few limited editions, signed copies of Coffey's works are uncommon. His debut solo book, offered here, is itself rather uncommon and signed copies of it, especially Association copies as offered here, are scarce indeed. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY, PLACED, DATED, INSCRIBED, AND SIGNED BY BRIAN COFFEY. RARE. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
