Author: Sward, Robert; [Jon Edgar Webb]
Price: $45.00
Publisher Location: London
Publisher: Putnam
Year Published: 1962
Book Condition: Very good -
Edition: First edition
Cloth-backed marbled paper-covered boards; 8vo. 32 pp. Inscribed "For Jon Edgar Webb and/The Outsider/with warmest regads and best wishes/Bob Sward/ McDowell Colony/Peterborough, NH/July 1962." Poet's second book, no US equivalent. Webb and his wife "Gypsy Lou" edited the Loujon Press and published five issues of The Outsider,one of the most (elaborate) and important mid-century literary magazines. The contributors to The Outsider, Miller, Bukowski, The Beats, and other anti-establishment writers were not generally invited to The McDowell Colony, and I find no other connection between Sward and Webb. An interesting association copy. Bottom edges and tips of the fragile paper covers worn, but about very good in a lightly worn and soiled (small brown spot on back panel) bright yellow printed dust jacket (in a removable protective archval cover).
