About this Item: Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1956. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 2nd Edition. Elizabeth Bishop’s 1956 Pulitzer Prize volume inscribed, with corrections in the text. POEMS NORTH & SOUTH – A COLD SPRING. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, (1956.) Near fine in a like, price-clipped, dust jacket. This is the second printing of Bishop’s second volume of poetry, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1956. An interesting association copy because this copy had belonged to ‘Beat’ poet Ray Bremser. Both the front and rear end papers have a large diagonal purple ink APPROVED stamp. In addition, the front end paper has the ex-libris of poet Raymond Bremser whose work was included in the seminal 1960 Grove Press anthology, New American Poetry, edited by Donald Allen. Bremser’s ex-libris partially covers the APPROVED stamp on the front end paper (see scan). Bremser’s entry in the Biographical Notes section of New American Poetry begins: “Born Jersey City 1934, educated at Bordentown Reformatory.” Therein lies the tale of Elizabeth Bishop’s inscription on the title page: To _____ _______ – thank you for letting me see this interesting copy of POEMS – Elizabeth Bishop February, 1978. The present owner found this copy at a used bookshop in lower Manhattan and recalled that Ray Bremser had a criminal record as a juvenile and had been jailed several times, hence the APPROVED stamps by the authorities allowing him to keep the book while serving his Bordentown Reformatory sentence. The owner sent this copy to Bishop, with a note to that effect included, and received back, in turn, the book inscribed as above, and with two initialed ink corrections in the text. In addition, Bishop had added a short note (not included here) that mentioned, in part, “I think I’ve been much more interested in the “beats’ ” poetry than they would have been in mine”. According to the MacMahon bibliography, there were 2,000 copies of the 1955 first printing, and 750 more of the second in 1956, presumably because of extra sales due to the Pulitzer Prize. They differ only by the removal of the date “1955” from the title page of the second printing. The dust jackets are identical and both occurrences of the misprint in the title of the poem, “The Gentleman of Shalott”, that Elizabeth Bishop has hand-corrected in this copy of the book, were present in the first printing as well. [MacMahon A2a2]. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # COB040057

About this Item: Verdigris Press, [Octon, France], 2006. One of 10 copies from a total edition of 50, all on Hahnemuhle paper, signed by the artist, Judith Rothchild and the printer / binder, Mark Lintott; this is one of 10 deluxe copies with an original copper plate and additional mezzotint, 40 regular copies also were made. In addition 20 suites of prints from the original copper plates were printed. Page size: 11-1/2 inches x 16-7/8 inches. Bound by Mark Lintott: original gray-green paper over boards, paper has been silk-screened with yellow moon and title printed in khaki green with exposed sewing in ivory linen thread, blood red cloth hinges, red paper spine with title printed in black with author and artist's name, blood red endpapers, housed in publisher's matching clamshell box, fine. Illustrated by Judith Rothchild and designed by Judith Rothchild and Mark Lintott, including three original mezzotints, pulled from three copper plates, two full page and the other copper plate cut into eight sections and each of the eight plates separately re-printed and inserted in the text corresponding to the indications given by the author. The text is set in Vendome Romain and was printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott, who also made the bindings, slipcases and boxes. The date of publication, according to the artist and printer, was February 5, 2006, which was the third anniversary of Colin Powell's speech to the UN Security Council. Parts of that speech are printed in black on the blood red recto of the rear free endpaper. 12 O'CLOCK NEWS was originally published in GEOGRAPHY III in 1976. Elizabeth Bishop's prose poem, certainly surreal in outlook, with a great sense of irony as well as parody, takes a look at the author's desk top, but isolating images and viewing them as minutia. The results, as detailed in Bishop's "new report," could not be any more wrong. The parallel with the American Secretary of State's speech at the U.N. is devastatingly obvious.

About this Item: Henry Holt and Company (1947), New York, 1947. Hardcover. First Edition. Preface by Allen Tate. Elizabeth Bishop's copy SIGNED by her on the front endpaper. In a letter to Robert Lowell dated 27 June 1950 Bishop writes of THIS book: "I spent most of the weekend reading Samuel Greenberg--have you? I got so mad at the introductions, particularly Tate's--and if you haven't read the poems I recommend them highly. He was certainly one of the finest poetic characters I know anything about, and phrases are magnificent--and no critic has ever apparently appreciated either at their real value" (ONE ART: ELIZABETH BISHOP'S LETTERS, p. 204). In another letter to Robert Lowell dated August 1950, Bishop writes: "I'm reading The 'Green Huntsman' and it's marvelous--also just finished Samuel Greenberg and Isaac Rosenberg who have many strange points in common" (WORDS IN AIR: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE OF ELIZABETH BISHOP AND ROBERT LOWELL). Clearly even two months later this book was still in the forefront of Bishop's mind. While we have handled several copies of Bishop's books signed by her as well as correspondence, this is the first book from the poet's library that we have encountered. It appears, also, to be a book that had some influence on Bishop's development as a poet. Greenberg was also a huge influence on the poet Hart Crane, who first read Greenberg in manuscript. Crane was so taken by Greenberg, he lifted entire lines for his own poems. The cloth was damaged by water at some point with the result that it is discolored. There is only slight water damage to the dustwrapper. Still Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper. Seller Inventory # 014861

About this Item: Verdigris Press, [Octon, France], 2006. One of 40 copies from a total edition of 50, all on Hahnemuhle paper, signed by the artist, Judith Rothchild and the printer / binder, Mark Lintott; 10 of the 50 are deluxe copies with an original copper plate and additional mezzotint, 40 regular copies (this copy). In addition 20 suites of prints from the original copper plates were printed. Page size: 11-1/2 inches x 16-7/8 inches. Bound by Mark Lintott: original gray-green paper over boards, paper has been silk-screened with yellow moon and title printed in khaki green with exposed sewing in ivory linen thread, blood red cloth hinges, red paper spine with title printed in black with author and artist's name, blood red endpapers, housed in publisher's matching slipcase, fine. Illustrated by Judith Rothchild and designed by Judith Rothchild and Mark Lintott, including two original mezzotints, pulled from two copper plates, one full page and the other copper plate cut into eight sections and each of the eight plates separately re-printed and inserted in the text corresponding to the indications given by the author for a total of 10 mezzotints. The text is set in Vendome Romain and was printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott, who also made the bindings, slipcases and boxes. The text is set in Vendome Romain and was printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott, who also made the bindings, slipcases and boxes. The date of publication, according to the artist and printer, was February 5, 2006, which was the third anniversary of Colin Powell's speech to the UN Security Council. Parts of that speech are printed in black on the blood red recto of the rear free endpaper. 12 O'CLOCK NEWS was originally published in GEOGRAPHY III in 1976. Elizabeth Bishop's prose poem, certainly surreal in outlook, with a great sense of irony as well as parody, takes a look at the author's desk top but isolating images and viewing them as minutia. The results, as detailed in Bishop's "new report" could not be any more wrong. The parallel with the American Secretary of State's speech at the U.N. is devastatingly obvious.
