** Image clicks to enlarge.

Author: Creeley, Robert (ed.)
Price: $7500.00
Publisher Location: Black Mountain, NC
Publisher: Black Mountain College
Year Published: 1954
Book Condition: Very good
Edition: First edition
Illustrated wrappers; small and large 8vo. Issues 1 through 7, all published, of one of the most important small press magazines, edited by Creeley from Mallorca, Spain for the experimental college with Charles Olson as its rector (and with Robert Hellman and Irving Layton, a contributing editor). Except for Issue 7 all the copies have faint pencil marks throughout (often just lines) including some notes on the cover. The contents page for a number of poets include "c" with a circle around it (copyright?), or other marks (e. g. "in DF"), Levertov "Overland" - obviously referring to her book of that name. Issue 1 has in pencil "Allen"; Issue 6 has the name D. M. Allen on the front cover, likely Donald M. Allen the anthologist responsible for the breakthrough The New American Poetry 1945-1960, with Olson and Creeley (established and new poets, respectively) both Black Mountain poets as the twin pillars upon which the book was based. Very good copies, with some soiling and creasing to the spines, but generally quite attractive and needless to say scarce in any condition. Presumably Donald Allen's copies (six of them it seems).
