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: Octon, France, 2006. First Edition with these Illustrations. Illustrated with mezzotints by Judith Rothchild One of an edition limited to 50 numbered copies on Hahnemuhle paper, signed by the artist and printer Landscape Quarto Fine copy In this, one of her most unusual compositions, Bishop describes her writing desk cryptically, as if she were a broadcaster describing a distant conflict. The subtle typographical arrangement of the two parts of the essay mean that it takes some time for a new reader to realise, for example, that the escarpment that rises abruptly from the central plain. [with] elaborate terracing of its southern glacis is a typewriter. Bishop writes 'What endless labor those small, peculiarly shaped terraces represent! And yet, on them the welfare of this tiny principality depends. Touching and witty when applied to the writer's station, the analysis of strange terrain is chilling when applied to a wider context. Bishops work, which mocks the superior vantage point of occupying regimes in international conflicts, was first published in Geography III (1976). In this edition, the colophon is followed by Colin Powells speech to the U.N. Security Council (5th February 2003) on the use of satellite images to provide evidence of Iraqi munitions facilities. Judith Rothchilds exquisite mezzotints offer a suitably mysterious accompaniment to the text. Text hand-set by Mark Lintott and printed in Vendôme using an Albion press. The title was set in wood type. Bound with a Japanese stab-binding in printed paper boards with maroon cloth detail and matching endpapers, enclosed in a matching slipcase. The mezzotints are interleaved with Japanese cloth which protect them whilst revealing the text. Bookseller Inventory # 10452

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

From wikipedia "The New York Review was founded by Robert B. Silvers and Barbara Epstein, together with publisher A. Whitney Ellsworth and writer Elizabeth Hardwick, and with the backing of Barbara's husband Jason Epstein, a vice president at Random House and editor of Viking Books. Hardwick had published an essay in Harpers in 1959 called "The Decline of Book Reviewing", a scornful look at the failure of criticism in reviews of the time that inspired Silvers and Epstein. During the New York printing strike of 1963, when the New York Times had ceased publication, the founders of The Review seized the opportunity to establish a vigorous book review. They knew that book publishers would advertise their books in the new publication, since they had no other outlet for promoting new books. The first idea was to make Norman Podhoretz editor, but he chose to stay at Commentary magazine. The group then turned to Silvers, a friend of Jason Epstein's, who had been an editor at The Paris Review and was then at Harper's. Barbara Epstein had become known as the editor at Doubleday of Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl, among other books, and then worked at Dutton, McGraw-Hill and The Partisan Review. The first issue of the Review was published on February 1, 1963 and sold out. Silvers says of the editors' philosophy, "We felt you had to have a political analysis of the nature of power in America - who had it, who was affected". The editors also "had one thing in common, it was this feeling of intense admiration for wonderful writers". Early issues included articles by such writers as Hardwick, Hannah Arendt, W. H. Auden, Saul Bellow, John Berryman, Truman Capote, Paul Goodman, Lillian Hellman, Irving Howe, Alfred Kazin, Robert Lowell, Dwight Macdonald, Norman Mailer, Mary McCarthy, Norman Podhoretz, Philip Rahv, Susan Sontag, William Styron, Gore Vidal, Robert Penn Warren and Edmund Wilson. The Review pointedly published interviews with political dissidents, including Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Andrei Sakharov and Václav Havel." Highlights include the incendiary friendship-ending letters between Nabokov and Edmund Wilson, satirical drawings by Gorey and Levine, and many of the greatest writers of the second half of the 20th century actively engaged in critical, literary and political discourse, with a healthy admixture of art criticism. Plus, a Fine/Fine copy of The First Anthology - 30 Years of The New York Review of Books, 1963-1993, edited by Robert B. Silvers, Barbara Epstein, and Rea S. Hederman, c.1993, First Edition, 345pp. Bookseller Inventory # C00002847

Inscribed, in the form of a fourteen-line, whimsical poem, and signed by Ted Hughes, to friend and publisher Richard Gilbertson, in year of publication: "From Tedward/ Xmas 1967 To Richard/ Who when I write rhymes/ At any old time/ Of inconsequence/ Takes them in worst sense/ Goes silent and scowls/ Like a holly tree full of owls/ A pox on his folly/ He needs pricking with some holly./ Now let him take this/ an antithesis/ And he will get such gripes/ That even the goose in his gut/ Will cry 'Ouch, get me out/ of these tripes.'/ Rather let him seasonably laugh/ And winnow the wheat, the wit, I mean/ from the chaff" (on the front flyleaf). Ted Hughes 'Shows by explanation and example how modern poets such as Dickinson, Lawrence, Welty, Roethke, Plath, and Larkin captured pictures with words' [per OCLC abstract]. A near fine copy, with very slight soiling to laminated boards [issued without dust jacket]. First edition [Sagar and Tabor A14a; 4000 copies printed (issued in the United States as 'Poetry Is')].
