Item Description: Cummington Press, (Cummington, MA), 1944. Hardcover. First Edition. Publisher's blue boards stamped in orange, title page printed in red and black with woodcut in blue by Gustav Wolf. Housed in a half blue morocco leather slipcase. Introduction by Allen Tate. Lowell's scarce first book, limited to a total of 250 copies printed. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper to poet Randall Jarrell: "For Randall/with affection and admiration/and no apologies for dogma,/Cal." Lowell was nicknamed Caligula at preparatory school, and the diminutive "Cal" stuck with him throughout his life. Lowell and Jarrell met at Kenyon College, where they were roommates, and became lifelong friends, each providing valuable criticism of the other's work. In 1965, Lowell eulogized the friend who had been one of two beneficiaries of his will: "Randall Jarrell was the only man I have ever met who could make other writers feel that t heir work was more important to him than his own." Along with the copies Lowell presented to John Crowe Ransom--at the University of Texas--and Allen Tate--in a private collection--this is one of the three most compelling association copies imaginable. Allen Tate, in his introduction to this collection, tempers his praise with a fair assessment of Lowell's current stature and potential, heralding a lasting presence in American poetry: "The history of poetry shows that good verse does not inevitably make its way; but unless, after the war, the small public for poetry shall exclude all except the democratic poets who enthusiastically greet the advent of the slave-society, Robert Lowell will have to be reckoned with." Two years later, Lowell would win the Pulitzer Prize for LORD WEARY'S CASTLE, at the age of 30. Small ink date of 1944 at the bottom right corner of the title page, likely in Jarrell's hand. Mild sunning to the spine which has a small, neat repair at the head; lacking the plain tissue dustwrapper. Near Fine in a Fine box. Bookseller Inventory # 017848

Item Description: Harcourt, Brace, New York, 1946. Second Edition. 69 pp., 8vo. The second edition, published a year after the first. With a very interesting autograph letter from Lowell (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 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. 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). Family history was a preoccupation that played an extremely important role in Lowell's early poetry, making this an especially fascinating document of personal and professional import.

Item 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

Item Description: Harcourt Brace, NY, 1951. Hardcover. First Edition. Lowell's third collection of poetry; his second collection, Lord Weary's Castle, won the Pulitzer Prize, and Lowell subsequently became the Poet Laureate of the U.S. He went on to win another Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Award, and a National Book Critics Circle Award. He taught at the Iowa Writers Workshop and later at Boston University where Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton were among his students. In the 1960s he was considered the most important and influential poet of his generation, particularly on the confessional poetry movement. This copy is inscribed by the author to a college classmate and his wife: "For Edgar & Janice [McGuire] with my usual great crisis of mind -- and end of an evening." With the recipient's bookplate just below the inscription. A nice, apparently contemporary, inscription in one of Lowell's early books.
