Item Description: The Phoenix Book Shop, New York, 1973. Dust Jacket Condition: resend this item. Oblong small 8vo, original string-tied unprinted stiff wrappers, marbled outer wrapper, printed paper label Housed in a custom green cloth clamshell box with a black morocco spine label First edition, one of the author’s copies from the lettered issue. Copy "L" (presumably chosen for "Loren") of 26 lettered copies (out of a total edition of 126) signed by Bishop on the colophon. This copy bears Bishop’s presentation inscription: "For Loren MacIver & Lloyd Frankenberg – love, Elizabeth Bishop" on the title-page. Laid in is an exceptionally interesting TLS from Bishop to MacIver and Frankenberg concerning the publication of Poem: "I’ve always disliked ‘pretty little books’ like this – However, Bill Ferguson, the printer, is a friend of mine here & he wanted to do it for some time & so I finally gave in. (The Phoenix Book Shop man is quite another type ) And since they have just arrived, or were here when I got back – I’m sending you one of my copies with a real, EXTRA signature – whee! You can sell it for a small sum if need be sometime – Love, Elizabeth". The artist Loren MacIver was a longtime friend and correspondent of Bishop’s and contributed the dust jacket design for Bishop’s second collection, Poems North & South – A Cold Spring, in 1955. Their friendship dates from as early as 1938, at which time Bishop was writing to Marianne Moore from MacIver’s Provincetown summer home. The poet and literary critic Lloyd Frankenberg, who married MacIver in 1929, wrote critical studies of Bishop 1946 and 1949 which are among the earliest appraisals of Bishop’s work. A superb association copy. Important association copies of Bishop’s books are rare; this is one of the very few we have seen or handled. Bookseller Inventory # 20762

Item Description: Chatto and Windus (1969), London, 1969. 8vo, original blue cloth, dust jacket Very slightly bumped and rubbed at foot of spine and fore-tips, otherwise a fine copy in a lightly rubbed and dust-soiled jacket First English edition, produced by offset from the third impression of the American edition, published October 29, 1970, and is the same as the first American edition except for the copy on the flaps of the dust jacket. The front inner flap of the English edition notes that the book was the "Winner of the National Book Award" and the jacket design is by Roxanne Cumming; the back flap is entirely different from the American edition, and quotes from reviews by Maurice Wiggin and Martin Dodsworth. One of 1000 copies printed. MacMahon A9(b1). Presentation copy, inscribed by Bishop on the title-page: "For Dorothee & Taylor Bowie – in exchange / for 50 lbs. of smoked salmon, among / other kindnesses – love, / Elizabeth Bishop". Bishop has corrected the text in three places and added a 6-word annotation at the end of one poem. On page 119, Bishop has scored through one word of text in "Song for the Rainy Season" and at the end of the same poem, on page 121, she has noted "Sitio Alcobacinha / Fazenda Samambaia / Petrópolis, Brasil". On page 177, Bishop has scored through two words of text noting in the margin "But no!" in "The Table", her translation from the Portuguese of Carlos Drummond de Andrade. And on page 207, Bishop has scored through one word of text, substituting "mean" in the margin. Dorothee Bowie, a professor at the University of Washington in Seattle for over thirty-five years, was the assistant to the chairman of the English Department when Bishop taught there for the first time in 1967. Bowie became Bishop’s best and most trusted friend, the person on whom Bishop relied to help her cope with the academic life for which she was entirely unprepared and ill-suited; or, as Brett Millier put it, Bowie became Bishop’s "chief troubleshooter, devoted helper, and willing excuse-maker when drinking interfered with her (Bishop’s) duties." – Brett Millier, Elizabeth Bishop, Life and the Memory of It (Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1993), p. 377. Bishop and Bowie remained close friends until Bishop's death in 1979. Bowie's reminiscences are recorded in Gary Fountain and Peter Brazeau's Elizabeth Bishop, an Oral Biography (Amherst, MA: University of Massachusetts Press, 1994). Bowie's and Bishop's correspondence is now part of the Bishop Collection at Vassar College and was reproduced in part in One Art, Robert Giroux's edition of Bishop's letters.

Item Description: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, N. Y., 1965. 8vo, original cloth, dust jacket A superb association copy, in fine condition in price-clipped dust jacket First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on the title-page by Bishop to the poet "Sandra McPherson "Teacher’s Pet" – Elizabeth Bishop, Seattle, Washington, March 1966". With two small corrections in the text by Bishop, who scores through the printed date "November, 1951"at the very end of "Visits to St. Elizabeths" and she scores through the word "the" in the last line of the second stanza on p. 40 of "The Burglar of Babylon"; as printed the line reads: "At the lighthouse out at the sea", a correction incorporated in later editions of the poem. With an additional pencil note by McPherson, and the ownership stamp and signature of McPherson on the front flyleaf. During the 1966/1967 academic year, Bishop was Poet in Residence at the University of Washington where she taught two classes, a class called "Types of Modern Poetry" and a class in writing poetry. She had never taught before and soon considered the decision to accept the position in Seattle as a "dreadful mistake." Bishop "was also appalled by her students’ emphasis on self-expression over craft . . . For her writing students, the best of whom was the poet Sandra McPherson, she insisted that they learn to write in rigid metrical forms first, use more concrete objects and fewer abstractions in their poems, and employ impeccable grammar across lines that through stanzas." – Brett C. Millier, Elizabeth Bishop: Life and the Memory of It (Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1993), pp. 375-379. McPherson recalled that "Elizabeth thought that she was not a good teacher . . . but she was a wonderful teacher. She was very natural. Elizabeth came into class not as an academic scholar or critic or even someone who demanded that we learn this, this, and this. She came as a practicing great artist, and as a person who seemed to have no affectations. She was a very natural, warm, conversational teacher. She did not seek disciples in any way that I could determine. I felt that Elizabeth was more of a fellow poet than a teacher." Bishop told another of her students, Wesley Wehr that McPherson was "showing signs of becoming a quite interesting young poet. She said, ‘What I like about her work is that she uses exactly her own materials.’" – Elizabeth Bishop: An Oral Biography edited by Gary Fountain and Peter Brazeau (Amherst, MA: University of Massachusetts Press, 1994), pp. 209-213. McPherson’s first book, Elegies for the Hot Season, was published by the Indiana University Press in 1970. Bookseller Inventory # 22809

Item Description: Farrar Straus & Giroux (1969), N.Y., 1969. 8vo, original blue cloth, dust jacket Pages 7-12 are somewhat stained, perhaps with coffee, covers lightly damp-stained, rust-stains from paper-clip at top of preliminary leaves, some foxing, but notwithstanding these blemishes, a distinguished association copy from Bishop’s extended Brazilian family First edition, winner of the National Book Award for Poetry. One of 5500 copies printed. MacMahon A9. Presentation copy, inscribed on the title-page "For Flavio de Macedo Soares Regis Nascimento, from his old friend, & with love, Elizabeth Bishop, (written at Casa Mariana, Ouro Preto, March 13th, 1970)". Flavio Regis Nascimento was the son of Marietta Nascimento, Lota de Macedo Soares’s sister. Lota had been Bishop’s lover, who had died suddenly soon after arriving in New York City in September 1967, a trip undertaken against her doctors’ strict orders. After Lota’s death, Marietta Nascimento contested Lota’s will, which had left everything to Bishop. Casa Mariana was Bishop’s own house in Ouro Preto. As Brett Millier, Bishop’s biographer, describes the relationship between Bishop and Flavio, Bishop "had become quite fond of the bookish, asthmatic young man and was impressed by his abilities as a poet, translator, and jazz aficionado. Flavio was good company in Lota’s absence, and [circa 1963] Elizabeth grew almost fixated in her idea that he needed to be "saved" from the poverty and corruption of Brazil. In letters to her academic friends – Lowell, Joe Summers, and others – she extolled his virtues and asked for help in getting him into an American university for a year or two, with a scholarship. Both Elizabeth and Flavio were deeply discouraged when, despite her best efforts and Lowell’s, Harvard would not come up with money and he could not go."After Lota’s death, relations between Lota’s family and Bishop became litigious, "Only Lota’s nephew Flavio was still speaking to her from that old life, and her major contacts with Brazilians were manifestly antagonistic." In February 1971, a year after she had given this copy of her Complete Poems to Flavio in Ouro Preto, Bishop traveled again to Brazil, where she learned of his suicide. He had been one of only two or three friends she still had in Brazil. His death surprised and shocked her. She wrote to James Merrill: "I am very unhappy about Flavio. It was awful to arrive here (Casa Mariana) and find his grandfather’s desk that I was sending him as a wedding present, all crated and on the porch waiting to be sent to Brasilia. I still don’t know what happened or why. . . . Others speculated that Flavio might have been a victim of the increasingly oppressive political regime in Brazil. In Elizabeth’s mind, Flavio, like Lota, had been killed by the country he had tried to serve" (Flavio had been in the diplomatic service in Brazil). – Brett C. Millier, Elizabeth Bishop. Life and the Memory of It. (University of California Press, 1993), pp. 349, 440-441. There is a drawing in blue ink of a figure on the half-title page, a drawing that the previous owner of the book believed to be by Bishop, but which does not resemble her other known drawings, and therefore we cannot definitively support the attribution.

Item Description: Verdigris Press, [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.

Item Description: Verdigris Press, [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. 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 slipcase, fine. 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.
