Presentation copy to Catherine Carver: "To Catharine & love new and old John, 5/May/ '67." Michael Millgate in his obituary for the INDEPENDENT called Carver "the greatest publishers' editor of her time, and surely the best loved". Carver's career in publishing began in 1945, she worked with Leon Edel (his James biographies), Richard Ellmann (his Joyce and Wilde biographies), Lionel Trilling, Tillie Olson, Hannah Arendt, Leslie Fiedler, Saul Bellow, Flannery O'Connor, Bernard Malamud, Katharine Anne Porter, Peter Matthiessen and many poets including Berryman, Bishop, and Cummings. She was very close to Berryman as a friend and editor, and there is a long correspondence between the two; she published Berryman's HOMAGE TO MISTRESS BRADSTREET at the beginning of both their careers while at Partisan Review, and helped shepherd THE DREAM SONGS into hardcover, including mending a feud between the publisher Giroux and the poet. The book consists of 115 sonnets mostly written and rewritten in 1947, according to Charles Thornbury, the editor of his Collected Poems, two decades before they were published, about an illicit love affair with "Lise" (his notebook displayed at an exhibit at the University of MN in 1990, is entitled "Sonnets to Chris" and dated May-July 1947). In mostly strict Petrarchian form his diction is distinctly his own. Although these poems are not related to his Dream Songs, there is a prefatory poem in the persona of Mr. Bones. Fine copy in a bright and complete dust jacket, with a very short closed tear and trace wear. An exceptional association copy. [12237] $1,750.00

Some aging, offset from the bookplate and Gaylord ticket, but very good (though technically I suppose ex-lib the binder did its job) with no wear. Quite scarce.

Folded four times, including an unfortunate fold lengthwise along the right edge, with a bit of light but uneven toning. Quite scarce nevertheless, with fve copies listed on WorldCat.

This was privately printed in THE TRAMPS EXCUSE in 1909". The other half within Lindsay's illustration is the poem "The Queen of Bubbles", his frst published work, in "THE CRITIC in Lindsay goes on to explain his map in detail: "The map has dominated all my verses since".

The poet on an otherwise blank page following the dedication page writes: "Omissions are not accidents". An interesting statement given that many of these poems, including her famous "Poetry" ("I, too, dislike it.") are here revised (a longer, earlier version is in the fairly extensive and useful notes to the poems), and the "complete poems" is in fact quite incomplete with only 120 versions (plus some translations from La Fontaine).

Offsetting, otherwise about fne in an edgeworn dust jacket with two half inch mostly closed tears. The offsetting to the dust jacket front fap and endpapers caused by the "Women Today" article in the Christian Science Monitor which shows two photos of Ms. Moore: "perhaps our best dressed poet".

Somewhat uncommon: the bibliographer reports 1251 sold, and the book went out-of-print within the year. Nevertheless, among the poems are favorites like "He 'Digesteth Harde Yron'", "The Pangolin" and the title poem. Sunned at extremities, end papers lightly toned as usual; nicer than usual copy, with a note in pencil of four poems not in "Collected"; in a clipped (front fap, top and bottom) dust jacket, with the price still present, worn with small loss at corners, still close to very good.
