Description:
London and Culver City: Villiers Publications Ltd, 1962. Complete run of this little magazine, published in London and Culver City, CA between 1959-1962. Factor and Linick, studying at UCLA and USC, were both drawn to poetry readings throughout L.A.; at the time, Coastlines was the only significant little magazine in the city, so the pair set out to publish their own, chiefly featuring west coast poets. The publication is best-known for being an early publisher of Charles Bukowski's work, prior to the release of his first book (he contributed six poems between two issues). Other contributors include William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Kenneth Rexroth, Judson Crews, Carl Larsen, Jack Micheline, Gil Orlovitz, John Reed, Clarence Major, Emilie Glen, Ben Tibbs, Robert Creeley, Gregory Corso, Louis Zukofsky, Gary Snyder, Denise Levertov, LeRoi Jones, and Lew Welch, among others. The final issue was dedicated to entirely to the work of New York School poets. Clay & Phillips, p.287; Dorbin C31-34, 50-51;… Read more

Description:
New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1932. First Edition. Faulkner's seventh novel, set in the American South during the days of Prohibition and Jim Crow, exploring themes of race, class, sex, and faith. "At its base, this is a simple, small-town idyll, but in execution it becomes a complex novel packed with comedy, violent misfortune, and implicit moral and social commentary. Four major characters lead frustrated lives: a part-Negro who passes for white and finally ends the victim of a mob; a preacher whose religion doesn't meet reality; a lonely woman; a migratory worker" (Coan, America in Fiction, p.58). One of the defining books of the 1930's, and cited in The Modern Library's "100 Best Novels" list. Petersen A13a. First Printing, one of 8,500 copies. Octavo (21cm); coarse tan cloth, with titles stamped in orange and blue on spine and front cover; orange topstain; dustjacket; [iv],480pp. Fine in a very Near Fine dustjacket, unclipped (priced $2.50), with some pinpoint wear to extremities,… Read more

Within this environment Laura de Nazianzi reluctantly enters a nunnery when the prince and heir of Pisuerga deserts her for a marriage of state with the English Princess Elsie...The Flower Beneath the Foot is not a love story, but as usual with Firbank's novels a commentary on a number of things: courts, England and the English, human passion, the religious life" (Benkovitz, Ronald Firbank: A Biography, p.208). Benkovitz A9a; Connolly 100. First Impression, one of 1,000 copies.

Description:
New York: Brentano's Publishers, 1924. First Edition. Firbank's first book published in the United States, a novel of West Indian life and manners. It was the first of his works that wasn't entirely self-financed, and despite the miniscule print run, the book was given a lavish treatment by Brentano's, published with a generous introduction by Carl Van Vechten, who was intent on making Firbank's work better known in America. Understandably, the inflamatory title roused an outcry in the African American press, though Nancy Cunard wrote a defense of Firbank and his use of the name in the Associated Negro Press, and the novel received a surprisingly positive review by W.E.B. Du Bois: "American Negroes will neither read, nor if they read, understand Ronald Firbank's "Prancing Nigger." In the first place they will condemn it unheard and unseen on account of its title just as they condemned the finest play in favor of the Negro yet written, Sheldon's "The Nigger."

Description:
London: Robert Hale, 1943. First British Edition. An intriguing intersection of hard-boiled literature, the Hollywood novel, and film noir. The book was purchased by Twentieth Century-Fox prior to publication in 1941 and the film was released the same year. Today it is not only viewed as a foundational film noir, but also one of the first in which the cinematography and deeply damaged characters were utterly soaked in the noir ethic. The film was released in the UK in 1942 - about a year after the US release - under the title "Hot Spot," and this edition, issued in typically miniscule quantities of 500 or fewer by Robert Hale, advertises itself as the basis for that film. A seriously rare book, perhaps even more so that the US edition; indeed, we were unaware of the existence of the Hale imprint until this copy was located. The Dark Page, Vol.1, p.98-99; Hubin, p.146. First Impression. Octavo (19cm); black textured cloth, with titles and revolver design stamped in red and silver on spine; dustjacket;… Read more

New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1941. First Edition. First Printing. Near Fine in a Near Fine, unclipped Second Printing dustjacket. Two small rubbed spots on the cloth at spine and rear panels, with a bit of faint even toning to the pastedowns and endpapers, else a sharp copy with an even red topstain. The jacket is an impressive example, the best we've seen for this title, with minute rubbing to the front corner tips and flapfold, some pinpoint rubbing at the spine ends, and three very small, unobtrusive surface scrapes at the spine panel. The $2.00 price is unclipped, with 'Second Printing' printed in red at the upper edge of the front flap. 'I Wake Up Screaming' was a major hit for Fisher, who until its publication was writing for pulp magazines and minor publishing houses. In addition to being a quintessential Hollywood novel, the book is a hard-hitting and desperately dark piece of crime fiction; Fisher, in fact, based the novel's corrupt detective on fellow crime novelist Cornell Woolrich.
