Item #30853 Flowers For Those You Love. Richard Brautigan.

Flowers For Those You Love

[San Francisco]: Communication Company, [1967]. First edition. 8 1/2 x 11", mimeographed in black on white paper, and illustrated with a photograph of a sprig of flowers. Provenance: from the estate of William "Gatz" Hjortsberg, who wrote the definitive Brautigan biography, Jubilee Hitchhiker.

The first appearance of this poem, eventually collected in all Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace. Brautigan published several works with the Diggers and Com/Co, and in our experience the rarest. This poem that is also a psa about STD testing aligns neatly with the Diggers advocacy for free health care and community awareness.

[Lepper p. 82. Barber 18].

A hint of marginal toning and some light handling creases tolower margins, a couple of faint gestetner track marks to verso, else fine. Item #30853
