Stunning Truman Capote handwritten letter Signed & Dated 1952 Taormina Sicily
A beautiful hand written letter dated 28th May 1952- Taormina Sicily. Written in pen to Leonard Lyons. Capote informs his correspondent, in part,’Your two notes have just now reached me – having been forwarded from Paris to Portofino to Rome to Ischia to me! So perhaps you no longer have need of a’great column’. In any event, I’m terribly flattered that you should ask me, and if you still want one I shall try to oblige’ continuing,’Of course I have no idea where you are; are you in Europe? I don’t suppose you will get to Sicily (noone ever does) but perhaps I will see you in Venice in Sept’ further continuing,’I could not get back my old house here in Taormina on account of its having been let. So I’ve rented in its entirety a 25 room hotel high up on a mountain overlooking the sea. It is a brand new hotel that the owner does not plan to open until next spring, so he rented it to me for what one would pay for an ordinary house… With very light age toning only, otherwise in very good condition.

ALLEN GINSBERG 1971 Signed HANDWRITTEN LETTER to Fantasy Records RE BLAKE ALBUM
A 2 page handwritten and autographed letter from Allen Ginsberg to Fantasy Records regarding never released poetry albums. On August 23, 1971 Ginsberg writes to Sol Zaentz, Ralph J. Gleason and Al Bendich of Fantasy Records of Berkeley, Ca. About an album of William Blake poems set to music and a second album of mantras albums he planned to release, but were for some reason never issued. Ginsberg believed Blakes poems were originally intended to be sung, and that through study of the rhyme and meter of the works, a Blakean performance could be approximately replicated. In 1969, he conceived, arranged, directed, sang on, and played piano and harmonium for an album of songs entitled Songs of Innocence and Experience by William Blake, tuned by Allen Ginsberg (MGM); this was to be his second Blake album. Ginsberg here delivers the master tapes, and notes that hed like to re-record and remix a few tracks, asks for copies of the masters for him and producer (Barry) Miles, notes that hes traveling to the Sierras with poet Gary Snyder, then to India, and would like to deal with the contracts afterward, and that hes just recorded 16 albums of poetrywill deliver those on call. Included are three additional xeroxed pages, two with Ginsbergs annotations in black marker. Extremely fascinating content note that these sessions included Arthur Russell on cello, then known as Charles Russell. With Recordmeccas lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
