September Song. Christopher Logue.

September Song

Np: Vandal Publications, 1966. First edition. 18 x 23” poster poem, offset printed on recto only.

One of the most famous poster poems of the sixties. Logue’s elegiac poem is here matched to a photograph of the corpse of Rube Burroughs, an American outlaw gunman killed in Souix City in 1879. The poem became a chant of the 60’s after being set to music by Donovan, a recording that also featured in Ken Loach’s film Poor Cow.

The lower margin of the poster bears the phrase ‘iron if creased.”. Item #23480

Price: $300.00
