Cleveland: Ghost Press, 1968. First edition. Thick 4to., stab-stapled and tape bound into wraps (cover illustrated with a photograph of levy by rjs). Mimeographed, with six silkscreens by rjs tipped on. One of 1000 copies. With a postcard ALS concerning levy's suicide laid in.
A mammoth collection of levy's work, here collected and edited by rjs and published to raise money for levy's legal defense fund during his ongoing battle with the censors; levy would commit suicide later in the year of publication.This copy significant for the inclusion of a mimeographed postcard laid in, illustrated with a drawing of three pigs entitled "We Like It Here!" signed "in plate" by Ferguson - likely Steve Ferguson. The verso contains a brief handwritten note addressed to "Steve" which states "d. a. shot himself with a 22 caliber rifle thru the forehead. Suicide. Continuation later." the note is signed "rj", likely by rjs. rjs was the editor of this fundraiser for levy, and, along with Steve Ferguson, discovered levy's body after his suicide. We don't know who the "Steve" of the inscription is, but this copy came to light in Canada. Item #23670
