c. 1921. In the 1920s, E.E. Cummings was a regular contributor of both writing and artwork to The Dial magazine, which was the preeminent Modernist journal of its time, publishing such writers as Joyce, Pound, Eliot, Cocteau, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Ford Madox Ford and such artists as Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse and Kandinsky. Cummings was only 25 years old when his first pieces were accepted for The Dial and, notably, it was the only place where his poems and his artwork were published side by side on a regular basis. The January, 1921 issue had four drawings and a poem ("Puella Mea") by Cummings: this is Cummings' original sketch for one of those drawings, perhaps the most well-known of them, of a fawn on its hind legs, next to a nude woman, beneath a tree. This sketch was used as his pencil transfer, and as such is drawn on both sides of the paper. The final product, which was ink and graphite on paper, is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a bequest of Scofield Thayer, Cummings' friend and mentor and the editor of The Dial. This sketch is on 8-3/8" x 10-7/8" paper, with a 5" x 9" pencil border. Stained and chipped, mostly in the right margin; very good. With a Gotham Book Mart exhibit number (#245) in the upper left hand corner, where a chip is pending. A copy of The Dial, Vol. LXX, No 1 [NY: Dial, 1921], with the published drawing is included and is near fine with a small spine nick and the usual wear to the yapped edges. An iconic image in its very first incarnation. [#029650] $4,000

1950. Written to the editor of the San Francisco literary magazine Gryphon, in its first year of publication, poetically requesting advance proofs, prompt publication, and retained copyright.

Water droplets to the return address; a tape shadow across the text; otherwise near fine. The Fall 1950 issue, Gryphon 2, did feature a Cummings poem, entitled "Poem." [#033006] $375
NY, Painters and Sculptors Gallery, 1932. Small flyer (one sheet, folded to make four pages) for a show that ran the month of December, 1932. An entertaining biography of Cummings covers most of the inner pages, bearing the notation "from Anthropos or the Future of Art." Anthropos, a one-act play by Cummings, was not published as a book until 1944, but the play did appear, in 1930, in Whither Whither, or After Sex What? The brief biography ends by reporting that Cummings "was buried alive in Harvard (1912-15)." A bit of top edge creasing; one horizontal fold; very good. [#033007] $200
