Book Description Printed by James E. Beard, Calistoga, California, 1970. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. First Edition. Quarto size, 72 pp., inscribed by author and signed by the illustrator (her husband), privately published. A lovely book of poetry, comprised of poems written during the 1930s and 1940s, which speak about "the western earth"; a valuable glimpse back in time, as we write this now in the early part of the 21st century, as that landscape has largely passed away. As Ms. Flanner states in the preface, "I am struck by the number of poems I find on some aspect of the western scene - weather, winds, mountains, yellow hills, enigmatic desert, mingling of the seasons, the look of semi-tropics and exotic forms". She shares that the wood-engravings were done about twenty-five years earlier by her husband, meant to accompany the poems, but it was only in 1970, after meeting the Napa Valley printer James E. Beard, that they decided to finally publish the two together, intended to be distributed only to friends and "a very few other persons who may be presumed to have an interest". Fred Monhoff was by trade an architect who also taught design at UCLA; an accomplished painter and artist, some of his work was on exhibit at the Mondavi Winery in June of 1971, timed to coincide with the publication of this work - laid into the volume is a newspaper clipping from the Napa Valley Register dated May 29, 1971, which discusses the upcoming exhibit and the book of poetry. Inscribed by the author to Jean and John Michels, originally from Chicago and then Washington, D.C., eventually moving to the Napa Valley, to a ranch on the Silverado Trail they called Pasadena Vineyards, where they clearly came to know the Monhoffs.___DESCRIPTION: Bound in light brown cloth, cream paper spine label with green lettering and decorative border; inscription on the front free endpaper "For Jean and John Michels - / With our Greetings" with the signatures below of Hildegarde Flanner and of Frederick Monhoff, dated beneath "June 19, 1971 / Calistoga"; frontispiece a lithograph in green from one of Mr. Monhoff's wood-engravings with black lettering (the engraving in black appears on p. 28, opposite the poem titled "Dawn Poem"), preface with initial capital letter in green, twenty-four wood-engravings, all done white on black, which for this volume were reproduced via lithography [done by the Monhoff's son, John], as "the original wood blocks had warped during the years" (from newspaper clipping); quarto size (10.25" by 6.75"), pagination: (i)-x, (1-2) 3-61, colophon (62). Issued without a dust jacket in the modern sense of the term, this copy with a plain brown wrapper which may have been applied by James E. Beard. Loosely laid in is the clipping from the Napa Valley Register referred to above, with one of Mr. Monhoff's wood-engravings (found on p. 2 of the book, opposite a poem titled "To Be in Rain").___CONDITION: Volume fine overall, with clean boards, a strong, square text block with solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and other than the author inscription is entirely free of prior owner markings; a hint of rubbing to the joints at the tail of the spine, one mark to the cloth near the bottom of the front board (which may be a natural variation in the fabric), and light toning to the endpapers from the brown wrapper, else fine.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
