Mallorca: Divers Press / Origin, 1953. First edition. 8vo, unpaginated, side-stapled in illustrated covers. Hand-set in Futura and Mercedes, and printed by Mossén Alcover in Mallorca. issued as Origin No. 8. From the library of Charles Olson's friend and fellow poet, Gerrit Lansing.
An unusual copy of this early and important Olson book, which originally belonged to Olson's friend and fellow Gloucester poet Gerrit Lansing. The book was normally issued in plain wraps within an illustrated dust jacket. However, this copy is side-stapled in illustrated covers with the same designed as the dust jacket. We've not been able to determine whether this is a variant copy, or perhaps a copy that was disbound and econstituted with a trimmed dust jacket as the outer covers. Regardless, a presentable copy with an association that involving Olson's Gloucester circle.
Covers toned, with some shallow chipping to extremities and a couple of greast stains to back cover. Very good. Item #27668
