Book Description: Farrar Straus Cudahy (1959), New York, 1959. First Edition. SIGNED by Lowell on the front free endpaper below his INSCRIPTION in his typical block-lettering childlike hand: "For Aunt Alice/with love & our many memories/From/Bobby." Above the inscription is the pencil signature of Alice W. ----. We are unable to make out the last name and have not been able to ascertain exactly who Alice was, but in any case this is the only copy of this important book, of which the poet's family is so central a subject, with a family association that we are able to locate. Laid in is a small card that reads "With the Compliments of The Author." There are a few pencil checks and underlines with one interesting ink underlining of the line "when my Uncle and Aunt left their three baby daughters" from "My Last Afternoon with Uncle Devereux Winslow." Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 006609

Book Description: Harcourt, Brace, New York, 1946. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Second Edition. 69 pp., 8vo. The second edition, published a year after the first. With a very interesting autograph letter (c. 100 words, signed), thanking Miss Mary Taylor Moore of Greensboro, North Carolina for sending him significant documents relating to his mother's family. Written from Lowell's office as Poetry Consultant to the Library of Congress, the letter reads, in part, "Your documents came at the right time.the lady who fell off the cliff was my great aunt.Mother remembers her well, and how she used to tell fanciful stories. I'm so glad that you thought of sending all this to me." and concludes, "Tomorrow I finish my one year job here--a great flurry of packing, farewells and arrivals." Lowell writes his address at the top of the sheet as "Lowell/Lib. of Congress/Washington, D.C." and gives the date as "Sep. 15" (the recipient has added in pencil the year, 1948). Written on one half of an 8.5 x 11 in. sheet (now evenly tanned), the letter was originally folded twice to fit in an envelope; the blank half of the sheet has been taped to the front free endsheet of the book, and the tape has yellowed (also taped to the blank half of the sheet is the address, in Lowell's hand, clipped from the envelope). The written portion, however, is entirely free from tape and in very good condition save for a vertical fold in the center. The book itself has Miss Moore's ownership signature on front pastedown, and light tanning to pages, otherwise very good in a darkened and edgeworn jacket. Family history was a preoccupation of Lowell's that played an extremely important role in his poetry, especially in the early years, making this an especially fascinating document of personal and professional import.

Book Description: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, New York, 1969. First edition of Lowell's contemplative response to the events of the late 1960s: "as my title intends, the poems in this book are written as one poem, jagged in pattern. . . . Accident threw up subjects, and the plot swallowed them." This copy is warmly inscribed to critic Dwight MacDonald and his wife Gloria: "I've tried to get more of you than just your name in this book. With love, Cal." MacDonald marched alongside Lowell at the 1967 march on the Pentagon, and is the dedicatee of the poem "The March": "lovely to lock arms, to march absurdly locked / (unlocking to keep my wet glasses from slipping) / to see the cigarette match quaking in my fingers, / then to step off like green Union Army recruits / for the first Bull Run, sped by photographers." The impact of Lowell and MacDonald's appearance at that march is memorably recorded in Norman Mailer's Armies of the Night; Lowell includes a poem dedicated to Mailer here as well. An appendix listing relevant dates includes the Six-Days' War, the Newark riots, the murders of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Russian occupation of Czechoslovakia, and, for both 1967 and 1968, "the Vietnam War." A near-fine copy, with an important literary association. Octavo, original blue cloth lettered in silver, tan endpapers, original unclipped dust jacket. Lightest edgewear to jacket, faint occasional foxing. Bookseller Inventory # 100135

Book Description: W. W. Norton & Company (1969), New York, 1969. Hardcover. First Edition. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper to Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, and their only child Harriet: "For Elizabeth + Cal + Harriet-/with always more love-/Adrienne." Lowell appropriated the book and the margins are filled with his ticks and slashes and a few words, especially in the section "Ghazals, Homage to Ghalib," a series of meditations on contemporary life modeled on Ghalib; the similarity to the poems Lowell was then working on for NOTEBOOKS and HISTORY is remarkable as is the association value of this copy. Three years later Lowell would publish THE DOLPHIN which Rich called "a cruel and shallow book" and "one of the most vindictive and mean-spirited acts in the history of poetry." Writing in AMERICAN POETRY REVIEW, she said: "what does one say about a poet who, having left his wife and daughter for another marriage, then titles a book with their names [FOR LIZZIE AND HARRIET] and goes on to appropriate his ex-wife’s letters written under the stress and pain of desertion, into a book of poems nominally addressed to the new wife?"
