Description:
Aspen, CO: Valley Kilns, n.d.. Original work. 11.5 inches (diameter). Very good condition, with no chips or other flaws. Garth Williams, the illustrator of Stuart Little, Charlotte’s Web, the Little House series, and many more beloved books for children, began his career as a fine artist. Though he was born in New York, and spent his early childhood in New Jersey and Canada, his English parents moved the family to London when he was ten years old. After initial studies in architecture, he attended the Royal College of Art in London, where he won a British Prix de Rome for sculpture. Returning to the United States after World War II, he found major success as an illustrator through his work on the books of E.B. White, Margaret Wise Brown, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Russell Hoban, and dozens of others, including many books in the Little Golden Book series. Animals in general, and baby animals in particular, appear throughout his illustrations. This undated ceramic plate, with an original drawing of a… Read more

Description:
New York: The Leonard Press, 1922. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 48 pp., small 8vo. With an introduction by Scott Nearing. Poems of the well-known Wobbly (the first poem, "Mourn Not the Dead," was set to music and recorded in the 1990s by Steven Taylor, poet and member of the revived Fugs). Front hinge of binding partially cracked, otherwise very good, in a near very good jacket with small edge chips and closed tears. This copy inscribed by Evelyn Preston to Spencer Miller, Jr., in November of 1922, with the question: "Tell me how long we are to keep Christ writhing on the Cross?" Preston was a philanthropist, reformer, and labor activist, friend of the Roosevelts, who married Roger Baldwin, also a Wobbly and the founder of the ACLU. She helped Fannia Cohn and others to establish the Workers' Education Bureau in 1921, of which Spencer Miller was a director. A nice association.

Description:
Berkeley: University of California, Letters and Science Extension, 1965. First printing. Single legal-size mimeo sheet, presumably distributed to the members of the seminars, with a two-column list of authors and titles. One horizontal fold near bottom, trivial faint creasing at edge, otherwise nearly pristine. A remarkable document from the historic conference (at which Olson gave a reading, delivered Causal Mythology as a lecture, and held these seminars), with exceptional provenance: from the papers of Tram Combs. Poet, publisher, and bookseller Combs, among his many accomplishments, spent many years assembling the first comprehensive collection of postwar Bay Area poets; during the conference, the collection was on display at the University's Bancroft Library, to which it was eventually given. Rare.

Description:
Bois le Roi, France: Editeurs Evidant, 1990. First printing. Paperback. Very Good. (250) pp., square 8vo. The original edition of this collection of more than two hundred concrete/conceptual poems (which was reprinted in 2011) by the founder and longtime editor of the very important international journal Doc(k)s. Each poem (and page) consists of two words, separated by a horizontal double rule, with extensive typographic and graphic play and intervention in the format throughout. This copy unmasks the man behind the pseudonym; inscribed as a New Year's gift "from Julien and Christian: the same man!" and with his business card, as Christian Poitevin, cultural delegate for the city of Marseille, laid in. Top corner bumped, and faint creasing and slight curl to covers; still a very good (and revealing) copy.
