Hölderlin's Madness

GASCOYNE, David

  • Quantity available: 1
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.

  • Quantity available: 1
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 first i ...

San Diego: Greenleaf Classics 1971, 1971. First edition. Four volumes, 4to. pp. 191, 192, 208, 143. Original glued illustrated wrappers, printed in green, red, yellow and black. All illustrated throughout. All near-fine with only minimal shelfwear and toning to edges and margins. Near fine A complete set of this rare survey, representing the largest collection of early American erotic comics. These "eight-pagers" as they became known, flourished in the 1930s and quickly faded away. During the height of the popularity they were conceived and distributed entirely surreptitiously, yet they accounted for a multi-million pound business at the height of the Great Depression. These erotic comics were heavily satirical and reflected the changing times in America. They used humorous pornographic parodies of the classic American newspaper comic-strips and movie stars of the time (Mickey Mouse, Popeye, Blondie, Superman, Greta Garbo, Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin) and were sharp jabs at the establishme ...

Familiar Street Scenes

GOCHO, Shigeo

  • Quantity available: 1
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 style of po ... Read more
