Price: $65.00
Publisher Location: San Francisco
Publisher: The Poet's Press
Year Published: 1969
Book Condition: Very good
Edition: First edition
Green printed cover, stapled, printed on Arches. 12 pages. 7x5 1/2. Reproduced from the poet's handwritten copy in an edition of 35 copies. There were an unspecified number of lettered "author's copies". This copy neither numbered or lettered; hors commerce. Originally intended to be part of a series of titles by Diane di Prima's The Poets Press, as told at the colophon the book was shelved due to a disagreement between author and publisher on the subject of “numerology”. 35 copies were printed for subscribers. A second edition with bookseller Julia Newman’s The Tenth Muse books was subsequently printed with a preface by Duncan explaining the history. Bertholf A33. Spine faded, else about fine.
