Superb association copies. linking the two major poets of the 20th century. Lowell and Frost met in 1936 when the younger poet sought out Frost at Harvard and asked for an opinion. Frost saw much promise, but advised Lowell to be more concise. This "rebuff" rankled, and the two never became good friends. Thick 8vo, cloth (some soiling). New York: Holt, (1939). First Edition.

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: W. W. Norton & Company (1969), New York, 1969. Hardcover. First Edition. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper to Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, and their only child Harriet: "For Elizabeth + Cal + Harriet-/with always more love-/Adrienne." Lowell appropriated the book and the margins are filled with his ticks and slashes and a few words, especially in the section "Ghazals, Homage to Ghalib," a series of meditations on contemporary life modeled on Ghalib; the similarity to the poems Lowell was then working on for NOTEBOOKS and HISTORY is remarkable as is the association value of this copy. Three years later Lowell would publish THE DOLPHIN which Rich called "a cruel and shallow book" and "one of the most vindictive and mean-spirited acts in the history of poetry." Writing in AMERICAN POETRY REVIEW, she said: "what does one say about a poet who, having left his wife and daughter for another marriage, then titles a book with their names [FOR LIZZIE AND HARRIET] and goes on to appropriate his ex-wife’s letters written under the stress and pain of desertion, into a book of poems nominally addressed to the new wife?"

Item Description: Faber, 1968. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 4to, pp. 60. Original black boards, lettered in gilt on spine. Illustrated dustwrapper. Two brochures for the Sidney Nolan Trust laid in. Small bookplate of Kenneth Clark to front pastedown, later gift inscription to ffep., chipping to head and closed tear to foot of spine, some marking to rear panel. 24 illustrations, 8 in colour, all by Sidney Nolan. First trade edition, INSCRIBED BY SIDNEY NOLAN TO KENNETH CLARK: 'K + Jane, Love from Sidney + Cynthia 1968'. With the bookplate of Kenneth Clark to front pastedown. Kenneth Clark has long been credited with bringing Australia's foremost artist Sidney Nolan [1917-1992] to worldwide attention. Nolan had produced his famous series of paintings of Ned Kelly in the 1940s, but it was his landscapes that first captivated Clark, who first travelled to Australia in 1949, and who happened to be writing his book Landscape Into Art (1949) during the voyage. Nolan's work chimed perfectly both with Clark's current preoccupations and with his general artistic taste. Clark bought his first Nolan painting during this visit, and would go on to acquire a large collection. Nolan travelled to England in 1950, settling in London the following year, and the two remained lifelong friends until Clark's death in 1983. (Kenneth Clark's wife was christened Elizabeth, but renamed herself Jane while at Oxford -- hence the 'J' of the inscription.) A wonderful association copy, bearing witness to an important and enduring artistic friendship. Bookseller Inventory # 2169

Box measures 19-1/8 x 9-7/8 x 2 inches. As New. A Mint set. From the publisher: "Willoughby Sharp and Liza Béar founded Avalanche shortly after they met in 1968. At the time, Sharp was a New York-based independent curator and Béar an underground magazine editor who had recently moved to New York from London. They published the first issue in 1970 and collaborated on 13 issues from 1970 to 1976. Avalanche focused on art from the perspective of artists rather than critics, and investigated new forms of art that were developing in the U.S. and Europe with probing interviews, extensive use of photography and dynamic layouts. For many artists, publication in Avalanche preceded a one-person gallery or museum show. Aside from an eight-page news section, the editorial content included only interviews, artists' texts and documents of art and art making. All interviews were conducted by Sharp, Béar or done jointly. Among the featured artists were Vito Acconci, Joseph Beuys, Hanne Darboven, Walter De Maria, Jan Dibbets, Philip Glass, Barry Le Va, Sol LeWitt, Richard Long, Gordon Matta-Clark, Bruce Nauman, Dennis Oppenheim, Yvonne Rainer, Keith Sonnier, Richard Serra, Robert Smithson, William Wegman, Lawrence Weiner and Jackie Winsor. This boxed facsimile edition of Avalanche's complete run reproduces the first eight issues individually, and the final five in a single newsprint paperback.". Bookseller Inventory # 112563
