San Francisco: Auerhahn Press, 1959. First edition. Signed by Michael McClure at the half-title page. 4to,. 54 pp, silk-screened wraps. One of 950 copies.
One of McClure's most powerful books, and a gorgeous publication from the Auerhahn Press. At the time this was the largest book that they had attempted. Haslewood considered the poems "so powerful and demanding that on several occasions I became almost physically ill while setting and printing them."
Soundly bumped at extremities, with some toning to margins and darkening to the spine. Very good. Item #29380
