[CID CORMAN] From the private library of fthe poet, scholar and editor and translator Cid Corman of Kyoto, Japan. Cid Corman was the editor and publisher of the seminal journal Origin and his press that produced Origin books which were often associated as well with James Weil and The Elizabeth Press in New Rochelle, New York. Cid always read his books with a pen in hand and with an eye as poet and editor. He would annotate often books and his reading either briefly with comments and marginalia or extensively, depending on the book, the subject, and even Cid's personal attachment to a given author, subject or even book. In many cases, Cid could have been involved with a particular author or even the publisher, and his many comments would adjust to that situation. In any case, with all books from Cid Corman's library, they were active and circulating. Denise Levertov was an important poet in Cid's passage through poetry. They were personal friends. Cid was one of the early advocates of this born British poet when she arrived in America. Kenneth Rexorth was another. Levertov was championed and published by Mr. Corman's mutual publisher New Directions. Cid always kept a close eye to Denise Levertov, often agreeing or disagreeing with her writing. Lightly annotated by Cid Corman showing his reading passage. He has tipped in various tear sheets from articles. Fine and bright stiff wraps with strong spine.
