Ladies Almanack. Showing their Signs and their Tides; their Moons and their Changes; .As well as a Full Record of Diurnal and No
A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dust jacket with light age toning to the edges. Written by Djuna Barnes in 1928, this roman à clef catalogues the amorous intrigues of Barnes' lesbian network centered in Natalie Clifford Barney's salon in Paris. Written as a winking pastiche of Restoration wit, the slender volume is illustrated by Barnes's Elizabethan-inspired woodcuts. Many of Barnes's female friends and lovers appear in the book pseudonymously including Natalie Barney, Élisabeth de Gramont, Romaine Brooks, Dolly Wilde, Radclyffe Hall and her partner Una, Lady Troubridge, Janet Flanner and Solita Solano, and Mina Loy. The original book was published by Robert McAlmon in Paris in an edition of 1000 copies which are extremely rare today.

[Paris in the 20s] O'Neal, Hank.
"Life is painful, nasty and short...in my case it has only been painful and nasty." Djuna Barnes: An Informal Memoir.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Literary recluse Djuna Barnes (1892-1982) had spent 40 years cloistered in a Greenwich Village garret when O'Neal, a record producer, first dropped by in 1978. A mutual acquaintance, photographer Berenice Abbott, had asked him to befriend the alienated, eccentric novelist-playwright-artist. O'Neal attended Barnes for three years, finding her by turns complex, intriguing and repulsive. She was full of engrossing memories; she seethed with homophobia (though bisexual herself), racism and simple meanness. She also struggled with writer's block, a condition made sadder by the promise evident in the snippets of poetry she managed to write.
