Human Universe and Other Essays [with Prospectus, in the Original Dust Jacket]

San Francisco: Auerhahn Press, 1965. First edition. 4to, 160 pp, bound in boards woodblock by Robert Lavigne printed in color, and back in vellum with titled stamped in gilt. Illustrated with a frontipiece portrait of Olson by Kenneth Irby. Letterpress prospectus for the title laid in. In the original unprinted paper dust jacket, and very scarce thus.

One of the most beautiful books from the press, the LaVigne print a remarkable work in itself.

Touch of rubbing to tips, else fine. The dust jacket has some light trace soiling, small chip from the lower margin of front panel, and a touch of loss at crown, but easily very good. Item #27460

Price: $350.00
