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: Senior Class/Vassar College [1934], Poughkeepsie, 1934. Hardcover. First Edition. Quarto (7-3/4" x 10-3/4") bound in velvet-covered boards. Elizabeth Bishop's senior yearbook at Vassar, of which she was the editor-in-chief. This can certainly be considered, as anyone who has ever been in charge of a yearbook may tell you, Bishop's first book, predating NORTH & SOUTH by 12 years. Profusely illustrated, with two photographs of Bishop, her senior photograph and a group shot of the yearbook staff. Underclassman Muriel Rukeyser has a poem here also. A scarce Bishop item, and the best copy of the several we have handled over the course of 25 years. A few, inevitable marks to the velvet. A Fine, fresh copy with no writing within other than the 1934 name of a classmate on the front free endpaper. Bookseller Inventory # 017233

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. Inscribed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # EZB001

Item Description: Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1955. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine-. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine+. First Edition. First Printing of the poet's second published collection, awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1956. 8vo; viii, 95, [1]pp. Publisher's French blue cloth, the upper cover and spine stamped in white; in a white, blue and green dust jacket lettered in black and priced $3.50. A tight, square, just about Fine copy, the spine's ends very gently rubbed; in a better than Near Fine jacket with trivial losses to the ends of the spine, which is lightly soiled. Bishop's "lifelong love of travel began in earnest shortly after she completed college. The titles of several of her collections have strong geographical resonances: North and South (1946), Questions of Travel (1965), and Geography III, (1977). Moreover, many of her best poems contain themes of travel, exploration, and rootlessness. Travel is often a double metaphor in Bishop’s work, on the one hand evoking the thrill and adventure of seeing new places, and on the other a longing for permanence – both emotional and geographical. . . . [she] sees travel as a synecdoche for the soul’s urge to see and experience more, but at the same time a reminder of our need for roots, coherence, connectedness." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB0800
