Description:
London: J.M.Dent and Sons Ltd. [1938], 1938. First edition. 4to. 195x133mm. pp. [x], 48. Frontispiece portrait of Hölderlin. Original grey cloth. Dustjacket with tear to foot of spine, about half an inch missing. Other closed tears repaired. Marking and staining to upper cover of dust jacket. Contents in very good condition. Ownership signature of Kathleen Raine on front free endpaper - it is signed "Kathleen" but checking against other examples of her handwriting, it is clearly Raine's. She was a close friend of Gascoyne (initially through the poet Charles Madge who married Raine in 1938, the year of the publication of this collection). Hölderlin's Madness contains an introductory essay followed by 24 poems. These are loose translations of work by Holderlin but rendered into Gascoyne deceptively simple forms.

Description:
London: John Murray 1823, 1823. Reprint of the 1822 edition edited by Crabbe himself. A very nice set in contemporary straight-grained red morocco. Front and rear boards with fine gilt dentelles. Inside dentelles. Spines with four raised bands with gilt lettering and decoration. One area of marking on vol. vi. Text is in excellent condition and overall this is a lovely set. Fine Vol. I. Poems; Vol. II and III. The Borough; Vols. IV and V. Tales; Vols VI-VIII. Tales of the Hall. One does not meet much Crabbe today, save for his poem 'The Borough' with its tale of Peter Grimes, which inspired a 29-year-old Benjamin Britten to return to England, and Suffolk (where Crabbe, too, was born and raised). Such an occasional, vicarious encounter does little justice to the fame Crabbe enjoyed in his lifetime. A friend of Burke, and later Scott (who called him the 'English Juvenal' in Waverley), Crabbe was a poet whose realism, 'preceding even Cowper and anticipating Wordsworth, was the… Read more

Description:
Japan Self Published 1981, 1981. First edition, limited to 500 copies. Unpaginated. 47 colour plates. Black cloth with title and author stamped in English in silver on upper board and in Japanese on the spine. White card slip-case with a photograph on its front and the title and author printed in black in English and Japanese. Slip-case is protected by a plastic wrapper. Both book and case are in fine condition. The photographs in this, the last of Gocho's three published works were taken between April 1978 and October 1980. As with his other work, there is a sense of Gocho's detachment from the world around him, born in part perhaps from his own difficult circumstances. He was born in 1946 with a rare degenerative illness which prevented him from growing to full adult height; he was only four feet tall. Furthermore Gocho knew from an early age that he would not live beyond middle age; he died in 1983. "Shigeo Gocho's final series, Familiar Street Scenes, marks a significant departure from the… Read more

Description:
2012, 2012. Signed acrylic painting on paper of a silhouette figure of a naked man (290x225mm) in a white mount and framed in black (438x342 in the frame). The image is a simple one but typical of Gormley's exploration of and interest in the basic outline form of the human figure. It is painted in black with a lowering sky at the top of the paper so that the whole of the figure apart from the top of his head is set against a white background. His obvious nakedness, his thin arms spreading out from his body and the sense that he might be about to lose his balance all suggest a fragility and vulnerability. But Gormley's human figures are famously impervious to clear and obvious interpretations which makes them, of course, all the more unsettling. Gormley has signed this on the verso (A.M.D. Gormley 27.8.12) and the painting is framed with a clear back so that it can be seen. Also seen is the fact that Gormley painted this on the plain white back of a small poster advertising the 2012 Voewood Festival… Read more
