This is no. 33 of a limited edition of 100 copies only, plus copies I-X for the author, so stated. This is a bilingual edition in Polish and in German. Translated into German by Karl Dedecius. The artist is Stasys Eidrigevicius. Complete in a three-part custom portfolio plus slipcase. 12.25 x 9.75 inches. The left side of the portfolio with 9 poems in the original Polish bound in, the center with 8 original etchings bound in, and the right side with 9 poems in German translation. Also with colophon pages in Polish and German. The portfolio of beige linen [or linen-like] cloth, immensely clean and with sharp corners. Each of the three panels of the portfolio screenprinted with a large facsimile of the signatures of the poet, artist and translator, respectively. As called for, there are eight original etchings of copperplate and aquatint. The etchings pulled on ecru, heavy-duty card stock, apparently produced in Poland. On average each plate measures 5.75 x 4.75 inches. Most plates in gray-scale and a few with subtle tones of blue or brown added. Each of the etchings is signed in light pencil by the artist, just below the impression. All pages, including text and plates, exceptionally clean. We can find no demerits. Lovely custom full-pictorial slipcase, bound in gray cloth stamped in black and white. The featured silkscreen by the artist consists of the wrap-around design on the slipcase. Slipcase with just a trace of soiling/browning to the rear board. A Fine copy in a Near Fine slipcase. Rare in any condition. Czeslaw Milosz [1911-2004] was a Lithuanian-born "Polish poet, prose writer, translator and diplomat. His World War II-era sequence The World is a collection of twenty 'naïve' poems. Following the war, he served as Polish cultural attaché in Paris and Washington, D.C., then in 1951 defected to the West. His nonfiction book The Captive Mind (1953) became a classic of anti-Stalinism. From 1961 to 1998 he was a professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Berkeley. In 1978 he was awarded the Neustadt International Prize for Literature, and in 1980 the Nobel Prize in Literature." Stasys Eidrigevicius [b.1949] is a painter and graphic artist. "Lithuanian-born, Polish-based Stasys is an artist of popular taste who values expression over intellectual constructs. His art has a faux-naif, humorous flavour in its reductionist qualities, superimposing itself over the romantic notion of art as a metronome registering the 'vibrations of the soul'. Stasys' works often depict single figures, who sometimes carry simple domestic implements or furniture; their distorted physiognomies are veiled with a fan, a pair of slippers, or a basket covering the head." Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
