Item Description: Benton 75. Bishop’s largest and most finished recorded painting, a basket of pansies – the name derives from the French "pensée" – beside a pair of books, was a deeply symbolic gift from Bishop to her lover Lota de Macedo Soares, inscribed "L. de M. S. from E. B. 10-28-60." In Pansies, Bishop balances the domestic tableau with memories and intimations of travel: beside the basket of flowers, its title barely legible, is Baedeker’s Northern Italy. Bishop first visited Italy with Louise Crane in 1937 and would spend a month visiting Venice, Florence and Milan with Lota in the late spring of 1964. In Shakespeare, the pansy, then known as heartsease, was associated with contemplation and love, the juice from its flowers most memorably used as an aphrodisiac in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. "In her simple ink drawings and watercolor sketches, often unfinished but always enchanting, one can find the style and matter of her poetry. A richly colored image of pansies beside a pile of books on a checkered tablecloth conveys her instinctive association of word and image. Bishop’s words become visible in odd angles of vision, the play with scale, the emotional language of colors, the affection for the humble." – Bonnie Costello, Planets On Tables: Poetry, Still Life, and the Turning World (Ithaca, N.Y.: Cornell University Press, 2008), p. 84.

Item Description: Benton 11. A portrait of Bishop’s close friend Louise Crane, the daughter of Winthrop Murray Crane, founder of the Crane Paper Company and Governor of Massachusetts, and Josephine Porter Boardman, founder of the Museum of Modern Art. Bishop and Crane met as undergraduates at Vassar College in 1930 and a year after graduating traveled through Europe together in 1935-1936. In 1938, Bishop and Crane pooled their resources and bought a nineteenth century clapboard house together at 624 White Street in Key West, but in the next few years their relationship foundered, reducing Bishop to near suicidal despair. A prominent philanthropist and patron of the arts, Crane became Marianne Moore’s executor after Moore’s death in 1972. Bookseller Inventory # 21793

Item Description: Benton 3. After graduating from Vassar College in June 1934, Bishop moved to NYC where Mary McCarthy had found an apartment for her to rent at 16 Charles Street in Greenwich Village. Bishop lived there for a year, and later described her life during this period, and her work at a correspondence school for aspiring writers, in her essay "The U.S.A. School of Writing". On July 29, 1935, Bishop sailed for Europe for an extended Continental tour with her friends Louise Crane and Margaret Miller, returning to the United States in June 1936. Bishop’s year in New York was the first in a series of intermittent but unhappy attempts to live in the city. By the fall of 1951, just before sailing for South America, she told Joe Summers: "I’ll never try to live in New York again." – Remembering Elizabeth Bishop. An Oral Biography. Edited by Gary Fountain and Peter Brazeau. (Amherst, MA: University of Massachusetts Press, 1994), p. 126. Although the brick townhouse at 41 Charles Street no longer exists, Eric Karpeles has recently ascertained that the house in the painting is actually 41 King Street which survives today.

Item Description: Benton 27. In the spring of 1942, Bishop spent two weeks in Mérida, the capital city of Yucatán, during an extended five and a half month trip through Mexico with Marjorie Carr Stevens, Bishop’s companion for five years from 1941 until 1946. On this trip, Bishop met Pablo Neruda, who was on a diplomatic mission to Mexico and one day happened to be climbing the same pyramid at Chichén Itzá as Bishop. Reviewing Bishop’s Complete Poems: 1927-1979 (1983), on the dust jacket for which this painting is reproduced, James Merrill wrote: "The watercolor on the jacket, a view of a Mexican town done by the poet in 1942, serves nicely as an introduction. It’s a cheerful scene, in no way traditionally "picturesque." Beyond a balustrade flanked on one side by an absurd ornamental urn (so much for Art?) and on the other by flourishing palm fronds, we see some little, run-down, brilliantly colored houses. Above these, near and far, quite upstaging the few church spires lost among them, perhaps fifty windmills crowd the horizon – so that, like the mysterious flooded dreamscape in "Sunday, 4 A.M.," it appears to be "cross- and wheel-studded / like a tick-tack-toe." The picture illustrates at once Bishop’s delight in foreign parts, her gratitude for the givens of a scene, and her typical way with systems. These tend to fade beside her faith in natural powers – here, those jaunty cockades turning in wind to draw water, compared to which the Christian temples, though neatly delineated, look a touch feeble and evanescent." – James Merrill, "The Transparent Eye" in Collected Prose (N.Y.: Alfred A. Knopf, 2004), p. 235. Bookseller Inventory # 21797

Item Description: Benton 23. For three months during the winter of 1938, Bishop lived in a boarding house at 529 Whitehead Street, across the street from the Monroe County Courthouse, a two-story red brick courthouse built in 1890. In all probability this picture represents the view from the boarding house. The courthouse survives, and still appears almost unapproachably tangled up in a welter of trees, telephone poles and electrical wires. Bookseller Inventory # 21794

Item Description: Benton 19. A little wooden church on Olivia Street in Key West not far from Bishop’s home at 624 White Street, where she lived from 1938 until 1946.Throughout this period, however, as Lorrie Goldensohn points out, "until taking up residence in Brazil in 1951, Bishop rarely lighted in one place for more than seasons at a time. . . . The fractions of years and seasons are dizzying." – Elizabeth Bishop: The Biography of a Poetry (N.Y.: Columbia University Press, 1992), p. 103. Olivia Street borders the Southern Keys Cemetery, and it may have been Olivia Street along which Bishop enjoyed walking "back & forth at night" past the graveyard. Bookseller Inventory # 21795

Item Description: Benton 49. "A comb is a harp strummed by the glance / of a little girl / born dumb." – "Objects and Apparitions." Bishop’s translation of Octavio Paz’s homage to Joseph Cornell, "Objetos y Apariciones" appeared in The New Yorker on June 24, 1974, and was one of the last poems to be included in Geography III. Like Paz, Bishop was a great admirer of Joseph Cornell, whose name is now virtually synonymous with this art form. "Cornell is superb. I first saw the Medici Slot Machine when I was in college. Oh, I loved it. To think one could have bought some of those things then. . . . When I looked at his show in New York two years ago I nearly fainted, because one of my favorite books is a book he liked and used. It’s a little book by an English scientist who wrote for children about soap bubbles [Soap Bubbles; their colours and the forces which mould them, by Sir C. V. Boys, 1889]." – Conversations with Elizabeth Bishop. Edited by George Monteiro. (Jackson, MS.: University of Mississippi Press, 1996), pp. 120-121. Bookseller Inventory # 21799

Item Description: Verdigris Press [2006], [Octon, France], 2006. One of 10 copies from a total edition of 50, all on Hahnemuhle paper, signed by the artist, Judith Rothchild and the printer / binder, Mark Lintott; this is one of 10 deluxe copies with an original copper plate and additional mezzotint, 40 regular copies also were made. In addition 20 suites of prints from the original copper plates were printed. Page size: 11-1/2 inches x 16-7/8 inches. Bound by Mark Lintott: original gray-green paper over boards, paper has been silk-screened with yellow moon and title printed in khaki green with exposed sewing in ivory linen thread, blood red cloth hinges, red paper spine with title printed in black with author and artist's name, blood red endpapers, housed in publisher's matching clamshell box, fine. Illustrated by Judith Rothchild and designed by Judith Rothchild and Mark Lintott, including three original mezzotints, pulled from three copper plates, two full page and the other copper plate cut into eight sections and each of the eight plates separately re-printed and inserted in the text corresponding to the indications given by the author. The text is set in Vendome Romain and was printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott, who also made the bindings, slipcases and boxes. The date of publication, according to the artist and printer, was February 5, 2006, which was the third anniversary of Colin Powell's speech to the UN Security Council. Parts of that speech are printed in black on the blood red recto of the rear free endpaper. 12 O'CLOCK NEWS was originally published in GEOGRAPHY III in 1976. Elizabeth Bishop's prose poem, certainly surreal in outlook, with a great sense of irony as well as parody, takes a look at the author's desk top, but isolating images and viewing them as minutia. The results, as detailed in Bishop's "new report," could not be any more wrong. The parallel with the American Secretary of State's speech at the U.N. is devastatingly obvious. See an Image.

Item Description: Henry Hold and Company (1947), New York, 1947. Hardcover. First Edition. Preface by Allen Tate. Elizabeth Bishop's copy SIGNED by her on the front endpaper. In a letter to Robert Lowell dated 27 June 1950 Bishop writes of THIS book: "I spent most of the weekend reading Samuel Greenberg--have you? I got so mad at the introductions, particularly Tate's--and if you haven't read the poems I recommend them highly. He was certainly one of the finest poetic characters I know anything about, and phrases are magnificent--and no critic has ever apparently appreciated either at their real value" (ONE ART: ELIZABETH BISHOP'S LETTERS, p. 204). In another letter to Robert Lowell dated August 1950, Bishop writes: "I'm reading The 'Green Huntsman' and it's marvelous--also just finished Samuel Greenberg and Isaac Rosenberg who have many strange points in common" (WORDS IN AIR: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE OF ELIZABETH BISHOP AND ROBERT LOWELL). Clearly even two months later this book was still in the forefront of Bishop's mind. While we have handled several copies of Bishop's books signed by her as well as correspondence, this is the first book from the poet's library that we have encountered. It appears, also, to be a book that had some influence on Bishop's development as a poet. Greenberg was also a huge influence on the poet Hart Crane, who first read Greenberg in manuscript. Crane was so taken by Greenberg, he lifted entire lines for his own poems. The cloth was damaged by water at some point with the result that it is discolored. There is only slight water damage to the dustwrapper. Still Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 014861

Item Description: New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1976. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Bishop on the title page: "Elizabeth Bishop - December 28th, 1976". Publisher's brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial light brown dust jacket designed by Cynthia Krupat, with an illustration of books, a globe and a telescope to the front panel in black, lettered in black. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Scarce signed. This copy was inscribed by Bishop at the 1976 MLA convention hosted at the Hotel Americana in New York City December 26-28th. Bishop was honored at the convention with several speakers presenting on her work and a reading in which Bishop orated her own poetry. Geography III is Bishop's fifth and final collection of poetry published during her lifetime. It contains "In the Waiting Room," "Crusoe in England," "Night City," "The Moose," "12 O'Clock News," "Poem," "One Art," "The End of March," "Objects & Apparitions," and "Five Flights Up." The title "Geography III" references to the natural and ecological themes found throughout the volume and is underscored by Bishop's prefatory quotations from the 1884 textbook First Lessons in Geography from Monteith's Geographical Series. Published only three years before her death, Geography III was one of Bishop's most acclaimed poetry collections and helped significantly increase her literary reputation in the last years of her life.

Item Description: Verdigris Press [2006], [Octon, France], 2006. One of 40 copies from a total edition of 50, all on Hahnemuhle paper, signed by the artist, Judith Rothchild and the printer / binder, Mark Lintott; 10 of the 50 are deluxe copies with an original copper plate and additional mezzotint, 40 regular copies (this copy). In addition 20 suites of prints from the original copper plates were printed. Page size: 11-1/2 inches x 16-7/8 inches.

Illustrated by Judith Rothchild and designed by Judith Rothchild and Mark Lintott, including two original mezzotints, pulled from two copper plates, one full page and the other copper plate cut into eight sections and each of the eight plates separately re-printed and inserted in the text corresponding to the indications given by the author for a total of 10 mezzotints. The text is set in Vendome Romain and was printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott, who also made the bindings, slipcases and boxes. The text is set in Vendome Romain and was printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott, who also made the bindings, slipcases and boxes. The date of publication, according to the artist and printer, was February 5, 2006, which was the third anniversary of Colin Powell's speech to the UN Security Council. Parts of that speech are printed in black on the blood red recto of the rear free endpaper. 12 O'CLOCK NEWS was originally published in GEOGRAPHY III in 1976. Elizabeth Bishop's prose poem, certainly surreal in outlook, with a great sense of irony as well as parody, takes a look at the author's desk top but isolating images and viewing them as minutia. The results, as detailed in Bishop's "new report" could not be any more wrong. The parallel with the American Secretary of State's speech at the U.N. is devastatingly obvious. See an Image.
