FREEMAN, R.B. The Works of Charles Darwin : An Annotated Bibliographical Handbook. Second Edition, Revised and enlarged. (Folkestone, Kent) : Dawson /(Hamden,Conn.) : Archon Books, (1977). Pp (4),5-235,(1) + frontispiece 8vo , green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Howard-Hill, Bibliography of British Literary Bibliographies, 2nd ed. 2957. Richard Broke Freeman (April 1, 1915 – September 1, 1986) was a zoologist, historian of zoology, bibliographer of natural history and book collector. Freeman called The Works of Charles Darwin: An Annotated Bibliographical Handlist his first attempt to list “all the editions and issues [of works by Charles Darwin] which I have seen,or seen reliably recorded” no more than “a list” which is “far from comple te.” That 1965 work contained some 541 items; 12 years later, a second edition numbered 1,805 entries, though it maintained the same title.[Citing another scholar’s assertion that “it would be as hopeless a task to search outall the reprints [of Darwin’s Origin of Species] as it would be to discove r those of its great – and almost as shattering – coeval, The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám”, Freeman wrote: “I have tried to do just that for all of Darwin’s works.” The second revised edition of The Works of Charles Darwin was “virtually a new book”[ and “a required purchase for students of Darwin and of the history of evolutionary biology generally” which “stands second onlyto a facsimile of the first edition of The Origin of Species..” Slight wea r to cloth else very good. 60.00

206 GALLUP, Donald C. Pigeons on the Granite : Memories of a Yale Librarian. First Edition in dustjacket

GALLUP, Donald C. Pigeons on the Granite : Memories of a Yale Librarian. New Haven :The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University, (1988). First Printing. Pp. (10),1-353,(5). Illustration in text. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. 'During his extraordinary career as curator of the Yale Collection of American Literature, Donald Gallup developed closepersonal and professional relationships with a wide range of literary figu res, among them Carl Van Vechten, Gertrude Stein, ('Pigeons on the grass alas"), Alice B. Toklas, T.S. Eliot, Lincoln Kirstein, Norman Holmes Pearson,Thornton Wilder, and Edmund Wilson. Through these and other friendships he brought to Yale papers of James Weldon Johnson, Eugene O'Neill, Alfred Sti eglitz, Marsden Hartley, and numerous other representatives of modernism inAmerican art and literature. Major acquisitions, such as the papers of Ezr a Pound and the archhive of the Dial, were preceded by years of complex andoften dramatic negotiations. Chapters on the Boliingen Frize in Poetry and the Yale University Library Gazette recall other aspects of this Yale libr arian's career. These memories include a talk on Walt Whitman by Eliot, eleven Stein letters, a series of charades by Wilder, and two long interviews with Carlotta Monterey O'Neill in 1963 and 1964, all published here for thefirst time in book form. The extensive notes on conversations with Georgia O'Keeffe were made during several visits to the artist's desert home in Ne w Mexico between 1965 and 1983. Don Gallup also surveys his early years as a Yale student in the 1930s and as instructor in English at Southern Methodist University. His account of life as a World War II draftee who rose to lieutenant colonel in t/ie U.b. Army evokes memories of England in wartime and Gertrude Stein's Paris salon. Included are such unexpected incidents as a New Year's Eve climb up Pike's Peak, a tea oartv at Buckingham Palace, and the introduction of Stein to an unlikely audience—in a French Reformed Church."

"'I'll kill him!' said Mavis Gallant. Pierre Trudeau almost did, leading him('Run!') into a whizzing stream of traffic that almost crushed them both. Alistair MacLeod accused him of a 'home invasion' to grab the manuscript of'No Great Mischief'. And Paul Martin denounced him to a laughing Ottawa cr owd, saying 'If Shakespeare had had Doug Gibson as an editor, there would be no Shakespeare!' On the other hand, Alice Munro credits him with keeping her writing short stories when the world demanded novels. Robertson Davies,with a nod to Dickens, gratefully called him 'My Partner Frequent'. And W. O. Mitchell summoned up a loving joke about him on his deathbed. 'Stories About Storytellers' shares these tales and many more, as readers follow DougGibson through forty years of editing and publishing some of Canada's shar pest minds and greatest storytellers." - from the dustjacket.

ECW Press, Downsview, ON, 1984, ISBN:0920802788 1984 0920802788 / 9780920802786 
(GLASSCO, John). SUTHERLAND, Fraser. John Glassco : An Essay and Bibliography. (Downsview, Ontario) : ECW Press, (1984). First Printing. Pp. (6),7-121,(3). 8vo, decorated grey cardcovers with white lettered black title block to front cover, black lettering to spine.

Fraser Sutherland (b. 1946, Pictou County, Nova Scotia).

"He was a gigolo in a Paris brothel and caused a scene at a Gertrude Stein party. He was Mayor of Foster in Quebec's Eastern Townships. He wrote the novels 'Fetish Girl' and 'The Temple of Pederasty'. He won the Governor-General's Award for Poetry. He was John Glassco (1909-81), whom Fraser Sutherland calls 'a dignified and elusive man, something of a genius'. In 'Memoirs from Montparnasse', Glassco linked the present with the glorious Paris years of Joyce, Hemingway, and the surrealists. Through his many translations and anthologies, he helped English Canada understand Quebec better. In his erotica, his unfaltering good taste yielded insights into the tangled psychosexual world of Aubrey Beardsley and Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Always, he was a lyric poet. Sutherland has entered the labyrinth of Glassco's remarkable career and emerged with many new facts about one of the foremost figures in 20th-century Canadian literature. 'John Glassco: An Essay and Bibliography' is the first detailed treatment of a writer who -- often styled as a fop, dilettante, and Edwardian eccentric -- maintained an hermetic devotion to his own large talent. Sutherland's book will be indispensible to anyone unraveling the truth about a mysterious and complicated man whose life and work commands fresh attention." - from rear.

Bibliography includes more than 250 references.

With index to critics in the bibliography.

Name inked to flyleaf, five characters inked inside rear cover, else very good. NOTE: Due to the small size of this book, shipping costs may be cheaper than quoted. 20.00
