Author: Wilbur, Richard (intro. and signed by)
Price: $35.00
Publisher Location: Southfield, MA
Publisher: Randy Weinstein - Bookseller
Book Condition: Near fine
Edition: First edition
Printed stapled wrappers; 4to. 51 pp. Signed by Wilbur who provides an introduction (not likely produced elsewhere at least in this form) in which he suggests why collectors would want the items within which range from ephemera to manuscript; Association copy to Letter: "...-that every scribble is a communication to that invisible society called the Republic of Letters". The catalogue (50 items) as one might expect is rich: W.C. Handy to Fats Waller, Langston Hughes to Duke Ellington, Frost to his biographer Thompson, Walker Evans to Steichen, Isherwood to Auden, and manuscripts by Hemingway, Robert Lowell, Updike, etc. Near fine.
