Poet's Vaudeville. Diane DiPrima.

Poet's Vaudeville

[New York]: [c. 1962]. 4to, [8] pp, four sheets mimeographed from typescript on both recto and verso, and stapled once in the upper left corner.

A very early DiPrima publication, likely produced for a production of the Poets' Theater. The play is very much in the gossipy vain of the Floating Bear / Sinking Bear era, including references to Ray Johnson, Remy Charlip, Herbert Huncke, Cecil Taylor, George Herms, Billy Linich, John Wieners et al.

The Stanford copy notes it as being a issued limited edition of 200 numbered copies by Feed Folly Press, and intended for a work with John McDowell and and James Waring , however this copy carries no such statements, and is perhaps an earlier issue.

Final leaf heavily toned at verso, with some smudging and a couple small faint droplet stains, else about very good. Item #27159

Price: $250.00
