About This Item

Oyster Bay (New York): Feral Books, 2001   ¶ ONLY EDITION of a charming anthology gathered together as a medium for "The remarkable collage images of John Digby[, which] are rich in associations that demonstrate man's ancient links with the sea. Using archival and library sources, he has found and utilized colorful antique illustrations from nineteenth century and earlier publications that show humans of diverse cultures in their many ocean-going pursuits. As a basis, he uses outlines of fish that contain within them and sprouting from them miniature ships, sloops, smaller craft, and shipwrecks." (Dudley, page [278].) The text consists of 101 poems and prose extracts arrayed in seventeen "keepsakes" or fascicles (parts) each illustrated by two or more "collages" or vignettes by Digby, together with three additional fascicles, viz: [18] Water voyages: A note on the keepsakes [by] Joan Digby, [19] The maritime collages of John Digby [by] William Dudley, and [20] Index. The Rimbaud fascicle is no. 17, "Improvisations on Arthur Rimbaud's Drunken boat" by John Digby (1995, 2002), with six illustrations or vignettes. The other authors include Homer, Aesop, Virgil, Dante, Campion, Shakespeare, Herrick, Fane, Milton, Marvell, Cowper, Crabbe, Wordsworth, Peacock, Shelley, Keats, Heine, Beddoes, Thoreau, Melville, Whitman, Rossetti, Mallarmé, Corbière, Lazarus, Masefield, and Spender.   ¶ A fugitive publication, already VERY SCARCE.   ||| Collation: 20 parts (216 x 140 mm): Together 146 leaves, paginated [1-292] (ie, not paginated).  Illustration: Seventy-five text-illustrations or vignettes after John Digby.  Binding: Self-wrappers.  Condition: As new.  References: (Not in OCLC.)   ||| For further details please contact Jay Dillon  Rare Books + Manuscripts, as below. .

About Jay Dillon Rare Books + Manuscripts

Jay Dillon Rare Books + Manuscripts is a private, research-intensive rare-book dealer of forty years' experience in and around New York, specialized in exceptional books, manuscripts, and cultural property. Jay Dillon has been responsible for selling or appraising more than $100 million worth of books and manuscripts spanning some three thousand years. In 1989 Jay Dillon was the editor and principal author of a richly annotated catalogue that was hailed in the English press as one of the ten best books -- of any kind -- published that year. In 1994 he was invited to narrate the Discovery Channel program on the history of monopoly; and four years later he was consulted by the Zapruder family in connection with their famous film of the assassination of President Kennedy -- which, as it turned out, Mr Dillon valued more accurately than any other appraiser. The firm maintains a wide and productive network of relationships both among private collectors and in the trade; and we are currently engaged in building a number of outstanding private collections for our clients. Books and manuscripts offered to the public are mainly duplicates from our clients' libraries, or otherwise surplus to their needs. Our appraisal services include formal appraisals for insurance, estate-settlement, and tax purposes. For details please contact
