San Francisco: Four Seasons Foundation, 1980. First edition. Association copy, inscribed by Ed Dorn at the title page to Leroi Jones [Amiri Baraka] in the year of publication. "to Roi, who has seen everything up to, and perhaps even including, Wyoming. As ever, Ed / Dorn Boulder 25 Mar 1980." A handwritten note in pencil on the preceding half-title page by the bookseller Glenn Horowitz details the provenance; "Purchased from Amiri Baraka Newark, New Jersey August 1985 Glenn Horowitz."
A beautiful inscription and a superb association. It was Jones who published Dorn's first book, The Newly Fallen.
Spine lightly faded, with a couple light handling creases to the wraps but near fine. Item #27670
