AUBADE. Anthony Hecht. AUBADE.
[Colorado Springs]: The Press at Colorado College, 2004. First edition. Hecht's final published poem, an "aubade" -- a morning love song, traditionally "from a door or window to a sleeping woman," according to Wikipedia -- printed for Hecht's reading at Colorado College on October 14, 2004, just one week before his death on October 21, the day the poem appeared in the New York Review of Books. Oblong sheet, deckled on right edge only; 21 x 9.75", folded twice to make four pages and cover flap. Finely printed, at The Press at Colorado College which "is structured like an art laboratory" according to their website, in marbled blues and white above a crop of yellow and orange discs, reminiscent of night flowing into dawn (or perhaps vice versa). Fine. A MORNING LOVE SONG, HIS FINAL PUBLISHED POEM.

BEAT THE DEVIL. James Helvick. BEAT THE DEVIL.
Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, (1951). First edition. A REVIEW COPY with slip laid in. Helvick was the pseudonym of Claud Cockburn, a noted British radical journalist. Born in Peking, China, in 1904, he was the scion of an aristocratic family--one of his ancestors was the British commander who ordered the burning of the White House during the War of 1812 and his cousin was the novelist Evelyn Waugh. The book was made into a 1953 film directed by John Huston, with the screenplay by Huston and Truman Capote, and starring Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones and Gina Lollobrigida. Huston intended it to be a tongue-in-cheek spoof of "The Maltese Falcon" (1941), also directed by Huston, and other films of Film Noir-style that Huston himself had pioneered (Wikipedia). Near fine with light rubbing to the cover, light bump to top front cover, and faint offset to the endpapers. In a dust jacket which is about an eighth-inch short. We've informed that at least one other copy with a little shorter jacket has been cataloged, so perhaps publisher produced (Graham Gateson reported cataloged by Bauman Books) Also minor edge rubbing and soiling, and a few shallow chips to the spine ends and corners. Cover art still clear and bright.

TWO SIGNED CHECKS: ONE SIGNED BY ERNEST, THE OTHER BY PAULINE: MATTED AND FRAMED TOGETHER WITH A PHOTOGRAPH. Ernest Hemingway, Pauline. TWO SIGNED CHECKS: ONE SIGNED BY ERNEST, THE OTHER BY PAULINE: MATTED AND FRAMED TOGETHER WITH A PHOTOGRAPH.
Check No. 62 for $200, in Hemingway's hand and signed by him, drawn on The National City Bank of New York, September 14 1932, and made payable to Sarah E. Dousman. The online Guide to the Ernest Hemingway Collection at The John F. Kennedy Library, Boston, MA, records an undated 4-page letter from Dousman in Red Lodge, MT, to Pauline, but does not elucidate its contents or her relationship to the Hemingways. However, the main character, Robert Jordan, in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS hails from Red Lodge, which was a favorite vacation spot of Hemingway's, so perhaps they knew each other (or conducted business) during his visits there. Together with Check No. 176 for $100 made out to "Cash" on May 22 1933 and signed by Pauline. Matted and framed together with a copy of the well-known AP images of Hemingway arriving in New York on an oceanliner in 1934 with "(second wife) Pauline 'Fife' Pfeiffer." Checks are approximately 2.5 x 6.5"; photo is approximately 6 x 6" and frame is approximately 12.5 x 21". Altogether near fine.
