About this Item: Lime Kiln Press, 1975., University of California at Santa Cruz:, 1975. Oblong folio. [58] pp. Printed on English Hayle handmade paper, title-page woodcut by William Prochnow. Bound by Schuberth Bookbindery in German linen, open-laced deerskin over Monterey Cypress spine, Japanese Uwa end-papers. Custom slipcase made of Monterey Cypress inlaid with a square "window" of granite from Jeffers' stoneyard (drawn by the poet from the sea), built to stand erect on a felt-lined cypress stand; case with hair-line crack, else fine. SIGNED by printer William Everson in ink at limitation page. Prospectus signed by Everson and three proof-sheets laid-in. LIMITED EDITION of 100 numbered copies. EXCEPTIONALLY RARE presentation of Jeffers' powerful collection, housed in a beautiful case meant to stand on its own as a work of art. This unique blending of physical and lyrical expression weaves together layers of meaning in a celebration of permanence, poetry, and fine presswork, resulting in a truly outstanding piece. The Lime Kiln Press was a hand-press workshop run by Everson at UC Santa Cruz. Granite & Cypress is its third publication. "Perhaps the most extraordinary of Everson's lifelong attempts to create the unified or 'sacral' book, in fact, involves the printing of Robinson Jeffers' Granite & Cypress: Rubbings from the Rock. Every aspect of the poetic content, the landscape against which the poems were written, and the nature of the poet himself has been taken into account in the designing of this artifact" (Bartlett, p. 207). In a letter to critic and author Lawrence Clark Powell, Jeffers' wife, Una, writes: "The conflict of motives on the subject of going to war or not was probably one of several important factors that, about this time, made the world and his own mind much more real and intense to him. Another factor was the building of Tor House. As he helped the masons shift and place the wind and wave-worn granite I think he realized some kinship with it, and became aware of strengths in himself unknown before" (Jeffers in Occidental College, p. 4). From the prospectus: "Readers will find here, then, four unprecedented features. In the book itself they will read together for the first time the nuclear body of poems which Jeffers wrote under the impact of stone, the transforming symbol of his creative emergence. They will see the long Jeffers line extended to its natural outreach, like the pulse and withdrawal of the tides to which he attributed his prosody. They will find a typography in which the implication of stone is carried to the ultimate, registering the wave-worn permanence of his mood and themes. And in the incomparable case which enshrines the whole they will possess the architectonic resolution of all these elements, memorializing the achievement of a spirit intense but serene, and the passionate instinct, immoderate and fierce, by which he will always live."
