First British Edition (so stated) of the definitive collection, compiling all of Bishop's poems for the first time. Tall, thick 8vo; [12], 287, [1]pp. Publisher's forest green cloth, the spine lettered gilt within a black title block; the pictorial dust jacket (with a watercolor by Bishop) priced 10.95. A tight, square Fine copy (save for a short word blacked out on the front paste down); in a bright, crisp Fine jacket. "[L]ate in life [Bishop] frequently complained that she simply hadn’t written enough. She was a meticulous reviser who found it hard to part with a poem, to accept that it was in its final form. Her final volume, Collected Poems 1927-1979, contains only 71 previously published poems, 21 uncollected and occasional poems, 13 written in youth, and 26 translations from Portuguese, French, and Spanish. This small, sturdy, foundation supports the reputation of a literary giant."

Item Description: Farrar Straus & Giroux (1969), N.Y., 1969. 8vo, original blue cloth, dust jacket Pages 7-12 are somewhat stained, perhaps with coffee, covers lightly damp-stained, rust-stains from paper-clip at top of preliminary leaves, some foxing, but notwithstanding these blemishes, a distinguished association copy from Bishop’s extended Brazilian family First edition, winner of the National Book Award for Poetry. One of 5500 copies printed. MacMahon A9. Presentation copy, inscribed on the title-page "For Flavio de Macedo Soares Regis Nascimento, from his old friend, & with love, Elizabeth Bishop, (written at Casa Mariana, Ouro Preto, March 13th, 1970)". Flavio Regis Nascimento was the son of Marietta Nascimento, Lota de Macedo Soares’s sister. Lota had been Bishop’s lover, who had died suddenly soon after arriving in New York City in September 1967, a trip undertaken against her doctors’ strict orders. After Lota’s death, Marietta Nascimento contested Lota’s will, which had left everything to Bishop. Casa Mariana was Bishop’s own house in Ouro Preto. As Brett Millier, Bishop’s biographer, describes the relationship between Bishop and Flavio, Bishop "had become quite fond of the bookish, asthmatic young man and was impressed by his abilities as a poet, translator, and jazz aficionado. Flavio was good company in Lota’s absence, and [circa 1963] Elizabeth grew almost fixated in her idea that he needed to be "saved" from the poverty and corruption of Brazil. In letters to her academic friends – Lowell, Joe Summers, and others – she extolled his virtues and asked for help in getting him into an American university for a year or two, with a scholarship. Both Elizabeth and Flavio were deeply discouraged when, despite her best efforts and Lowell’s, Harvard would not come up with money and he could not go."After Lota’s death, relations between Lota’s family and Bishop became litigious, "Only Lota’s nephew Flavio was still speaking to her from that old life, and her major contacts with Brazilians were manifestly antagonistic." In February 1971, a year after she had given this copy of her Complete Poems to Flavio in Ouro Preto, Bishop traveled again to Brazil, where she learned of his suicide. He had been one of only two or three friends she still had in Brazil. His death surprised and shocked her. She wrote to James Merrill: "I am very unhappy about Flavio. It was awful to arrive here (Casa Mariana) and find his grandfather’s desk that I was sending him as a wedding present, all crated and on the porch waiting to be sent to Brasilia. I still don’t know what happened or why. . . . Others speculated that Flavio might have been a victim of the increasingly oppressive political regime in Brazil. In Elizabeth’s mind, Flavio, like Lota, had been killed by the country he had tried to serve" (Flavio had been in the diplomatic service in Brazil). – Brett C. Millier, Elizabeth Bishop. Life and the Memory of It. (University of California Press, 1993), pp. 349, 440-441. There is a drawing in blue ink of a figure on the half-title page, a drawing that the previous owner of the book believed to be by Bishop, but which does not resemble her other known drawings, and therefore we cannot definitively support the attribution.

Item Description: Chatto and Windus (1969), London, 1969. 8vo, original blue cloth, dust jacket Very slightly bumped and rubbed at foot of spine and fore-tips, otherwise a fine copy in a lightly rubbed and dust-soiled jacket First English edition, produced by offset from the third impression of the American edition, published October 29, 1970, and is the same as the first American edition except for the copy on the flaps of the dust jacket. The front inner flap of the English edition notes that the book was the "Winner of the National Book Award" and the jacket design is by Roxanne Cumming; the back flap is entirely different from the American edition, and quotes from reviews by Maurice Wiggin and Martin Dodsworth. One of 1000 copies printed. MacMahon A9(b1). Presentation copy, inscribed by Bishop on the title-page: "For Dorothee & Taylor Bowie – in exchange / for 50 lbs. of smoked salmon, among / other kindnesses – love, / Elizabeth Bishop". Bishop has corrected the text in three places and added a 6-word annotation at the end of one poem. On page 119, Bishop has scored through one word of text in "Song for the Rainy Season" and at the end of the same poem, on page 121, she has noted "Sitio Alcobacinha / Fazenda Samambaia / Petrópolis, Brasil". On page 177, Bishop has scored through two words of text noting in the margin "But no!" in "The Table", her translation from the Portuguese of Carlos Drummond de Andrade. And on page 207, Bishop has scored through one word of text, substituting "mean" in the margin. Dorothee Bowie, a professor at the University of Washington in Seattle for over thirty-five years, was the assistant to the chairman of the English Department when Bishop taught there for the first time in 1967. Bowie became Bishop’s best and most trusted friend, the person on whom Bishop relied to help her cope with the academic life for which she was entirely unprepared and ill-suited; or, as Brett Millier put it, Bowie became Bishop’s "chief troubleshooter, devoted helper, and willing excuse-maker when drinking interfered with her (Bishop’s) duties." – Brett Millier, Elizabeth Bishop, Life and the Memory of It (Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1993), p. 377. Bishop and Bowie remained close friends until Bishop's death in 1979. Bowie's reminiscences are recorded in Gary Fountain and Peter Brazeau's Elizabeth Bishop, an Oral Biography (Amherst, MA: University of Massachusetts Press, 1994). Bowie's and Bishop's correspondence is now part of the Bishop Collection at Vassar College and was reproduced in part in One Art, Robert Giroux's edition of Bishop's letters.
