Description:
Evanston, IL: Northwestern University, 1980. Near Fine in photo-illustrated wrappers. Faint trace of soiling to upper edge of textblock, wrappers mildly toned, with a trace of rubbing at the crown of the spine. An important issue of TriQuarterly, containing 'The Scalphunters,' the first appearance in any format of Cormac McCarthy's western novel Blood Meridian. 'The Scalphunters' was eventually developed into Chapter 12 in Blood Meridian, and while the 14 page story is brief, it contains significant textual variations from the finished text. Portions of the text were omitted, reworked, and expanded within the five year period prior to the book's publication in 1985. Blood Meridian is widely considered McCarthy's masterpiece, a gruesome, gothic western novel based on real events in the post-Civil War era. This copy has been signed by three notable authors at their respective contributions: author, director, and screenwriter John Sayles ('Dillinger In Hollywood'), Leslie Marmon Silko ('Coyote Holds A… Read more

New York: Liveright Publishing Corporation, 1952. First American Edition. American edition of Akutagawa's best-known collection of work, first published in English (in Japan) by the Charles E. Tuttle Co. in 1952. The stories were written by Akutagawa between 1915-1921, published in literary magazines. The first two stories, "In A Grove" and "Rashomon," served as the inspiration for Akira Kurosawa's masterful film adaptation, which opened the world of Japanese film to the West, and introduced Toshiro Mifune to viewers on a mass scale. As a testament to its significance and staying power, the collection (along with several other stories) was re-issued by Penguin Books in 2006, with an entirely new translation by Jay Rubin, and a lengthy introduction by Haruki Murakami. Criterion 138. Octavo (21cm); teal cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine and front cover; dustjacket; [4],5-119,[9]pp, with frontispiece and 6 plates of illustrations by M. Kuwata.

Description:
Philadelphia: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, 1802. Important issue of this Federalist newspaper, published by Joseph Dennie and Philadelphia bookseller Asbury Dickens. Notable for the inclusion of 'The Wolf King; or Little Red Riding Hood,' a decidedly grotesque version of the traditional Little Red Riding Hood story told in 26 stanzas. First published in Terror Tales (London: W.Bulmer & Co., 1801) and once attributed to M.G. Lewis, the publication in The Port Folio marks its first appearance in the United States. In comparison to the Brothers Grimm version of 1812, this version lacks the redemptive appearance of the huntsman, and ends with Little Red Riding Hood meeting a gruesome end at the hands of the wolf. "His hungry teeth the wolf king gnash'd, His sparkling eyes with fury flash'd, He'd op'd his jaws all sprent with blood, And fell on small red riding hood. / He tore out bowels one and two, "Little maid, I will eat you!" But when he tore out three and four, The little maid she was… Read more

New York: Basic Books, 1977. First Edition. American literary critic and intellectual powerhouse Lionel Trilling died of cancer in November, 1975. Soon after, three of Trilling's former Columbia University gradate students solicited works by a number of Trilling's former colleagues, comrades, and interlocutors to produce Art, Politics, and Will. The volume's high-profile contributors - ranging from Irving Howe to Edward Said - speak to Trilling's considerable influence on American letters. The familiar tone of this copy's inscription by the editors, and the associated letter's of conveyance of details about the editors' personal lives and progress on the publication, hint at literary critic Diana Trilling's intimate involvement with her husband's academic career and intellectual legacy. First Printing. Octavo (21.5cm); russet cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; yellow topstain; dustjacket; viii,295,[1]pp. With a moving inscription to Diana Trilling from Quentin Anderson, and signed by all… Read more
