Lawrence, KS: Grist, 1966. First edition. 4to, 40 pp., saddle-stapled in photographically illustrated wraps.
Ninth issue of one of the greatest little magazines to come out of the midwest in the 1960's,, this issue notable for the inclusion of work by Steven C. Wilson, later known as S. Clay Wilson - this is one of the earliest appearances of his work, perhaps his second - his first publication is suspected to be his earlier appearance in Grist 7 that same year. Wilson's piece is entitled "Big Wayne's" and features members of a "deviate sub-culture".
Also, contributions from d. a. levy, Frank O'Hara, Ted Berrigan (with a tribute to the recently deceased O'Hara), F. Eugene Warren, Allen Ginsberg, David Forslund, BarbaraMoraff, Jerome Rothenberg, Erik Kiviat, Ronald Silliman, Ottone M. Riccio, Tuli Kupferberg, Lillie D. Chaffin, Larry Eigner, James McCrary, George Kimball, and Mike Elzea.
Toning and some minor soiling, along with some faint insect damage to back cover of the wraps, which have a small split starting at spine and a bit of fragility, but still sound and holding. Priced accordingly. Item #26631
