AGEE, James (1909-1955); Walker Evans (photographs)
[Photobook] Let Us Now Praise Famous Men
Boston / Cambridge, Houghton Mifflin / The Riverside Press, 1941. First Edition. Hardcover. First Printing of this tour de force of American photography and perennial classic of American journalism, a "highly experimental book, pushing the boundaries of the way documentary should treat the world." (Lionel Trilling, in the Kenyon Review, called it the "most important moral effort of our American generation.") Demy 8vo (205 x 144mm): [2],xvi,471,[1]pp, with 31 beautifully printed black & white full-page photographs by Walker Evans, "his only excursion into 'true' documentary—among the finest ever made." (Parr & Badger) Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in silver; illustrated dust jacket, priced $3.50. A Fine copy, tightly bound and clean throughout; Near Fine or better jacket, head and toe of spine panel rubbed, with short tear and crease to bottom of front panel. A fresh, honest copy with no restoration. Parr & Badger I, p.144. Roth (101 Books), p. 108-09. In July and August of 1936, Agee and Walker Evans traveled to the American South to research a story on sharecropping for Fortune magazine. Their assignment, according to Agee's Preface, was to produce a "photographic and verbal record of the daily living and environment of an average white family of tenant farmers." Throughout the book, "Agee writes with extraordinary moral passion and highly personal emotion. He considers the tenant families victims of a massive system of human injustice that is global in proportions. In questioning his purposes, including the difficulty of ever really seeing into the heart of another, especially of those as different as the sharecroppers, Agee raises important questions about the aesthetic limitations of the literature of social consciousness that comprised a major genre in the 1930s and early 1940s. The design of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men reflects the fierce independence and eccentricity of its youthful author. Book One consists of only three pages: a single page 'Preface' and two pages listing the 'Persons and Places' in the book. Book Two, over 400 pages in length, is divided into an elaborate 'Design,' including its own 'Preamble'; sections on tenant clothing, shelter, education, and work; an 'Intermission'; and other narrative, poetic, autobiographical and confessional passages. The tour de force of this section, however, and perhaps of the book as a whole, is a short section on 'Overalls'. In the 'delicate beauty' that the overalls take on with age and wear, Agee finds an appropriate image to represent the lives of the tenants as a whole." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

ALDINGTON, Richard (1892-1962); Paul Nash (Illustrates)
[World War] Death of a Hero
London, Chatto and Windus, 1929. First Impression. Hardcover. First English Edition (appearing a few weeks after the American edition) of this canonical modernist novel. Thick crown 8vo (207 x 124mm): xii,440pp. With the author's note, commenting on the publishers' censorship and explaining the use of asterisks, and considering it "better for the book to appear mutilated than for me to say what I don't believe." Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gold, sepia dust wrapper illustrated by Paul Nash and priced 8s / 6d. A presentable example, better than very good, tightly bound and clean throughout; jacket spine panel toned, front panel still vibrant. Kershaw 53. Falls, pp. 261-62. Aldington's scathing take on early twentieth-century British society, openly discussing sex, death, mental health, class and a host of other 'indelicate' issues, which so mortified his publishers that they extensively censored the manuscript (an unexpurgated edition was published in Paris the following year). Orwell called Death of a Hero "much the best of the English war books." It gives a "thorough and solid account of not just the fear and despair, but also the dirt, illness and, above all, boredom and loneliness that soldiers experienced in the trenches, of which Aldington had first-hand experience. The novel has, in fact, an autobiographical basis; it is divided into three parts, with the first two devoted to the protagonist's coming of age, and only the last part set during World War I. This final part is significant for its disenchanted take on war, stressing not only the physical destruction of the body, but the obliteration of the sense of self and of one's place in the world."

Garden City, Doubleday, 1954. First Printing. Hardcover. First American Edition of Amis's first book, "the quintessential campus novel," in the superb Edward Gorey dust jacket, one of his first and finest. 8vo: 256pp. Publisher's brown cloth, spine lettered in white, illustrated dust jacket priced $3.50. About Fine (end leaves lightly offset), apparently unread, jacket about Fine (spine panel toned, as often), but an excellent example. From the collection of bibliophile Donald Kaufmann. Burgess 99. Time 100. Awarded the Somerset Maugham Award for fiction. "Jim may be the single bitterest character in all of English literature; Amis certainly crafts the most brutally accurate description of a hangover ever written. A punishingly, viscerally funny attack on hypocrisy and self-importance in all their many and varied forms, Lucky Jim gave rise to much of the angry-young-man fiction that followed, but it never met its equal."

 ASHBERY, John (1927-2017), The Tennis Court Oath. A Book of Poems [Inscribed to William Targ]
ASHBERY, John (1927-2017)
The Tennis Court Oath. A Book of Poems [Inscribed to William Targ]
Middletown, CT, Wesleyan University Press, 1968. Early Reprint. Hardcover. First Edition, Third Printing, of this touchstone of contemporary American avant-garde poetry. Crown 8vo (203 x 152mm): 94,[2]pp. Publisher's gray cloth, spine stamped in red and black, pictorial dust jacket (price-clipped) printed in black and salmon pink. Inscribed by Ashbery on title page to book editor and publisher William Targ. About Fine copy, square and tightly bound, crisp and clean throughout, of the scarce clothbound issue. Near Fine or better jacket, spine ends lightly rubbed, back panel slightly dust-soiled. The poet's second trade publication, first published by Wesleyan in 1962, collecting 30 poems. "On one level, 'The Tennis Court Oath' is a poem about the possibilities of poetry itself. For John Ashbery, the purpose of poetry is not communication in the sense of a message delivered or of an idea expressed. It is, instead, communication as the continuous encounter between ideas and things in language on the page and in language in the mind. In the fragmentary rhetoric of this poem, one can never be certain whether a given word is the object of one verb or the subject of the next. One does not know what to subordinate to what, just as one cannot determine plot from subplot or reality from dream in the inconstant landscape of the poem's progress. For Ashbery, this indeterminacy represents the liberation of poetry from poetic precedent, a chance for the poem to be read only by its own and its readers' own lights. The poem becomes an exemplary act of literary sabotage, a bomb tossed into the anthologies that readers carry in their minds from one work of literature to another." (enotes) N. B.

New York, E. Weyhe, 1930. Decorative Cloth. First Edition of this high point of twentieth-century documentary photography, from the library of one of the foremost documentary photographers. Preface (in French) by Pierre Mac-Orlan. Royal 8vo (267 x 207mm): [4],23,[1]pp, with frontispiece portrait of Atget by Berenice Abbot, 96 full-page sepia collotype plates from photographs of turn-of-the-century Paris by Atget, and 6-panel fold-out letterpress Table of Photographs. Original maroon wave-pattern silk-covered boards lettered in gilt, top edge stained saffron-yellow. Ben Shahn's copy, with estate book plate to front paste-down. Spine sunned (as usual) but titling legible, plate margins very gently toned, lacking the slipcase, else a fresh, tightly bound copy, clean throughout. Roth (101 Books), pp. 60-61 ("Atget's photographs have come to be seen by many as the beginning of modern photography"). Roth (Open Book), pp. 90-91. Parr & Badger I, p. 127 ("giving exquisite visual pleasure—the most striking images from more than thirty years spent documenting the streets, buildings, parks, and gardens of Old Paris.") Fotographia Publica, p. 50. Published simultaneously by Henri Jonquières, in Paris and Leipzig, on the occasion of a one-man exhibition at the Weyhe Gallery in New York; based on auction records, the New York issue seems the most desirable, although the Leipzig edition is rarest. In the early 1930s, Ben Shahn (1898-1969) shared a Greenwich Village studio with Walker Evans, from whom he learned the technical craft of photography and began splitting his time between taking photographs and paintings and drawings. Soon after, Shahn traveled extensively throughout the South and Midwest for the Farm Service Agency, documenting the plight of depression-era homesteaders and industrial workers and small town American life. In 1938, when Shahn's association with the FSA ended, so did his serious involvement with taking photographs. N. B.
