CONFETTI #18: "A woman should feel like a hot water bottle . . ."; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print. Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. CONFETTI #18: "A woman should feel like a hot water bottle . . ."; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print.
(Lexington, KY: Origami Express), 2004. First edition. One of 48 copies SIGNED and numbered in pencil by Vonnegut. One-color silkscreen print on white Coventry cotton paper measuring 11 x 15 inches. According to Vonnegut, "Confetti is Origami's response to the in-your-face lack of meaning or message in so much modern art, starting, perhaps, with Mondrian, and of course excluding the strikingly communicative Cubists, but surely including the intellectually and morally blank works by the so-called 'Abstract Expressionists.' Origami says to the latter, with pictures as didactic as this one, 'If you have absolutely nothing to say to anybody, can't you please shut up?'" Fine.

ENTER PSMITH. P. G. Wodehouse. ENTER PSMITH.
New York: Macmillan Co. 1935. First U.S. edition. This copy was definitely printed with U.S. sheets as the copyright page states it was printed in the U.S., but it doesn't match bibliographer McIlvaine's description [A12d1]. We therefore assume it is an unrecorded variant--at least in our experience--of the first U.S. edition. Title page reads "ENTER | PSMITH" versus "ENTER PSMITH," and the note on the copyright page differs slightly from McIlvaine's description ("Printed ... by" versus "Published ...at"). Endpapers and page edges very faintly foxed, otherwise near fine in somewhat edgeworn dust jacket that is nonetheless attractive (spine slightly darkened, eighth-inch chipped from head affecting "ENTER" in title, closed horizontal tear near bottom of spine, small chip from base, rubbed chips at corners, creased closed tear at top of front panel affecting "PSMITH"). dust jacket price is $2.00. VARIANT.

NATIVE SON. Richard Wright. NATIVE SON.
New York: Harper & Bros. 1940. First edition of his first novel, the story of Bigger Thomas, who murders two women and is condemned to death. A complex novel about the feelings of being powerless, resentful and afraid of the white world. A very good copy in the first-issue dark-blue cloth with a tiny snag on front edge of front board and other minor wear; in very good, first-issue dust jacket, which is a little faded on spine and has a few small chips, some faint damp staining on back cover and old tape backing on spine ends. Still, a presentable copy of this important book by this author. HIS FIRST NOVEL.
