Three Days After Blasphemies. Patrick Fetherston.

Three Days After Blasphemies

London: Gaberbocchus Press, 1967. First edition. First edition, wrappered issue. 8vo, unpaginated, bound in white card wraps printed in red. With publisher's prospectus laid in.

An unusual work, consisting of 100 numbered fragments of text followed by 100 numbered, terse poems, all inspired by the work of Christopher Marlowe. "In the present sequence of poems there is no attempt to fit Marlowe into a historical perspective; it is rather that a Marlovian twentieth century and a mimic Marlowe-figure have become foreground material to other, quickly receding, ages." -from the publisher's prospectus for 1967.

Very good with a touch of fading to the spine, which is just slightly cocked. Item #30061

Price: $25.00
