A Very Good copy of the First American Edition, first printing (light handling soil and some tiny spots to boards, a few spots to the rear board, board corners bumped, some foxing to the closed page block's top edge), in a Near Fine dust jacket (spine lightly sunned, quite light edge wear, tiny chipping at spine ends and corners, small rub at lower portion of the front panel near the flap turn, expected age toning to the rear panel and to the flap edges --- in excellent condition for an unlaminated dust jacket of this age), SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the title page where he also has made a notation in Greek. Containing 127 pages, the book presents the first comprehensive collection of Seferis' Poetry published in the United States. While some of the verses selected for this book previously appeared in the 1948 translation of "The King of Asine", the balance of them appear here in English for the first time. A Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. Signed copies of Seferis' works are extraordinarily scarce in any language, and our search of the of the auction records shows no signed copies of his works coming to auction in the last 55 years. Altogether a Very Good copy of an extremely difficult-to-find book from the first Greek author to win the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Item Description: Torchstream Books, London, 1954. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: very good +. First edition. An about Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original dark brown cloth (mildly canted, some pushing at the spine ends and board corners, bare traces of wear, a bit of wrinkling to the first plate, spine label sharp and crisp), in a Very Good + example of the scarce dust jacket which matches the free endpapers and pastedowns (small chips with tears at the spine panel's upper corners, tape repairs to the inside of the jacket, tiny wear at upper panel corner turns to the spine flaps, mild wear and tiny chip to the spine label that does not affect the lettering, portions of some signatures are unopened); copy 298 from a Limited Edition of 975 copies, SIGNED BY T. CLIFTON LONGWORTH on the title page and FURTHER SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the front free endpaper to British author Rex Warner, his friend and the translator of some of Seferis' works. Seferis also has inscribed the front free endpaper with a single line in Greek which he has underscored and under which he has drawn a series of arrows. Translated to English, the line written by Seferis appears to read "worship of sensual love on island of Cyprus" or "praise to worship of love on Cyprus" (We are seeking a more precise translation.) T. Clifton Longworth was deeply interested in the origins of religious belief and wrote extensively on the topic. In his studies of both ancient religions and present day tribal religions, Longworth determined the worship of love, that is, the adoration of reproductive organs as the symbol of the creative power, to be a common theme, running through the very first religions and constituting the first and most universal form of religious expression. This book presents an extensive study of the topic and, notably, the half-title carries the following printed statement: "The sale of this book is restricted to members of the Medical and Legal Professions, Anthropologists, Psychologists, Sociologists, Ethnologists and Students of Comparative Religion". In his research, Longworth visited Cyprus where he viewed the the sacred Cone of Aphrodite. He discusses it and the marvelous Greek statuary that evolved from it in his Introduction and in the book's first Chapter. George Seferis, a Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, was the first Greek ever to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature. Both he and British author Rex Warner - to whom Seferis presented the book - were deeply interested in all things related to Cyprus, thus explaining both the giving of the book by Seferis to Warner and the single line written by Seferis under his signature. Copies of Longworth's books signed by him are quite scarce (this Limited Edition was not called to be signed), as are books signed by George Seferis. This copy, of course, carries both signatures and also constitutes a nice association between two noted authors, the Nobel Laureate George Seferis and the noted author and translator Rex Warner.

Item Description: Robbins Music Corporation, Ltd, London, 1965. Wrappers. Book Condition: Fine. First edition. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing of musical score for the song "Zorba's Dance" (a touch of age toning, a bit of edge wrinkling primarily at the corners) by Mikis Theodorakis, SIGNED BY MIKIS THEODORAKIS, GEORGE SEFERIS (in Greek, TO REX WARNER), ANTHONY QUINN, and ALAN BATES, comprised of the covers and 4 pages of music composed by Theodorakis for the movie "Zorba the Greek", starring Anthony Quinn, Alan Bates, and Irene Papas, and featuring the song. The front cover reproduces a photograph (or still) showing Anthony Quinn (who played Zorba in the movie) and Alan Bates (who played Basil) doing the dance that Zorba taught to Basil. George Seferis signed at the top of the front cover to his fellow author, dear friend, and frequent translator, Rex Warner, and Alan Bates signed the front cover above his arm in the cover photograph. Anthony Quinn signed on the first page of the musical score, above the song's title, and Mikis Theodorakis, the composer, signed at the head of the score's 4th, and final, page. Composer, song writer, author, playwright, poet, philosopher, and activist, Mikis Theodorakis, wrote the music for the film Zorba the Greek (1964), as well as for Z (1969), for Serpico (1973), and for 17 other movies. He also composed numerous symphonies and the scores of numerous ballets, operas, and musicals. [Based on two traditional Cretan songs, "Armenohorianos Syrtos" and "Kritiko syrtaki" and written especially for the movie "Zorba's Dance" rapidly gained worldwide popularity and the catching tune continues to be played in Greek tavernas. The recording of it made by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass (which they called "Zorba the Greek") reached number 11 on the Billboard chart, and a version recorded by Marcello Minerbi reached number 6 on the August, 1965 UK singles chart.] Born in Crete and a friend of George Seferis, Lawrence Durrell, Rex Warner, and Nikos Kazantzakis (who authored the novel "Zorba the Greek"), Theodorakis shared with those authors their great fascination with Crete, and, along with along Seferis and Kazantzakis, was a fierce opponent of the oppression imposed by the dictators who ruled Greece through much of the 1960's. A Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. Copies of the music offered here are quite rare to the market and this remarkable Association copy SIGNED BY THE COMPOSER MIKIS THEODORAKIS, BY GEORGE SEFERIS, one of Greece's most important 20th Century Poets and the first Greek winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature (1963), to his good friend, frequent translator, and fellow author Rex Warner, and FURTHER SIGNED BY ANTHONY QUINN and by ALAN BATES, the principal stars of the movie which brought Kazantzakis to worldwide fame and which was the high water mark of Quinn's career, is RARE INDEED.

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1916. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. "If it must be, let it come in the heat of action. Why flinch? It is by far the noblest form in which death can come. It is in a sense almost a privilege. . . ." (Alan Seeger, from a letter written in 1915) A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original brown cloth (wear to spine ends, board edges, and corners --as is common with this scarce title, no dust jacket), SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the front free endpaper and there inscribed in Greek by him to fellow author Rex Warner who frequently worked with Seferis, translating his works from Greek to English. A Greek Diplomat, Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. Warner's excellent translations of Seferis' works contributed significantly to Seferis' winning the Prize. In his inscription, Seferis notes three pages of the book ("32 84 97") which, presumably, he especially wanted Warner to read. At these pages there appear "The Nympholept", "Kyrenaikos", and "At the Tomb of Napoleon Before the Elections in America - November, 1912". Alan Seeger (an uncle to American Folk singer Pete Singer) was a classmate of T. S. Eliot's at Harvard and himself a quite promising poet who both edited and wrote for the "Harvard Monthly". After a period of bohemian living in New York, attending parties at a boarding house where painter John Butler Yeats (father of William Butler Yeats) lived and over which he presided, Seeger moved to Paris and, in August, 1914, joined the French Foreign Legion so he could fight on the Allied side in World War I. He was killed in action during the Battle of the Somme in 1916. Ironically, Seeger is most famous for his poem "I Have a Rendezvous with Death", a favorite of American President John F. Kennedy who often asked Jacqueline Kennedy to recite it for him. Dying gloriously at an early age is a recurrent theme in Seeger's Poetry, and "Poems", Seeger's only book, was published in 1916, after Seeger was killed in battle. Reviewing the book in "The Egoist", T. S. Eliot wrote: "Seeger was serious about his work and spent pains over it. The work is well done, and so much out of date as to be almost a positive quality. It is high-flown, heavily decorated and solemn, but its solemnity is thorough going, not a mere literary formality. Alan Seeger, as one who knew him can attest, lived his whole life on this plane, with impeccable poetic dignity; everything about him was in keeping." Copies of "Poems" are themselves quite scarce, especially in collectible condition, and presentation copies signed by a Nobel Laureate in Literature are, of course, rare. A Very Good copy, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING POET GEORGE SEFERIS TO HIS FRIEND AND FELLOW AUTHOR REX WARNER. RARE. Bookseller Inventory # 00003336
