Floating Bear 29

New York: Floating Bear, 1964. First edition. Paperback. 4to. Mimeographed and stab-stapled into a cover sheet illustrated after a drawing by George Herms.

Single issue of the Bear, featuring a great cover by Herms. This issue was especially notable for a beautiful tribute by Gerard Malanga to Freddie Herko entitled Rollerskate; a preface to the piece notes that 'The poem is the dialogue spoken by the poet for a film tribute by Andy Warhol to the dancer, Freddie Herko." In the notes to the collected reprint, Di Prima notes "Jerry Malanga wrote 'Rollerskate' as a tribute to Freddie Herko after Freddie's death. I don't know if the film it refers to was ever made." [Floating Bear p. 571].

Old fold for mailing, toning to the back sheet and to margins of cover. Near fine. Item #27105
